  • Natural course of the remnant hepatic functional reserve as estimated by technetium-99m-galactosyl human serum albumin scintigraphy after a hepatectomy. Shimizu, Yoshinori; Aoki, Takeshi; Kusano, Tomokazu; Matsuda, Kazuhiro; Enami, Yuta; Yasuda, Daisuke; Koizumi, Tomotake; Niiya, Takashi; Murai, Noriyuki; Kato, Hirohisa; Kusano, Mitsuo; Murakami, Masahiko // Journal of Gastroenterology;Mar2010, Vol. 45 Issue 3, p308 

    Technetium-99m-galactosyl human serum albumin (GSA) scintigraphy provides an accurate estimation of the hepatic functional reserve but is not applied after a hepatectomy. The aim of this study was to elucidate the natural course of the remnant hepatic functional reserve (RHFR) after hepatectomy...

  • Function and volume recovery after partial hepatectomy: influence of preoperative liver function, residual liver volume, and obesity. Lock, Johan; Malinowski, Maciej; Seehofer, Daniel; Hoppe, Steffi; Röhl, Rhea; Niehues, Stefan; Neuhaus, Peter; Stockmann, Martin // Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery;Dec2012, Vol. 397 Issue 8, p1297 

    Background: The regenerative capacity of the liver is an essential pre-condition for the successful application of partial hepatectomy. However, the actual kinetics of functional recovery remains unspecified and no adequate tool for its clinical monitoring has yet been available. Methods:...

    Background: Using a rat model of hepatectomy, we investigated whether the severity of hepatopathy could be quantitatively measured from changes in expiratory [sup 13] CO[sub 2] levels after intravenous administration of [1-[sup 13] C]galactose. Materials and Methods: Under nembutal anesthesia,...

    Purpose: We introduce recent advances in surgical techniques and perioperative management in liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: Our approaches to further enhancing the efficacy of resection for HCC, based on our presentation at 'The 6th International Meeting of...

  • Liver functional reserve estimation: state of the art and relevance for local treatments. Manizate, Fotini; Hiotis, Spiros; Labow, Daniel; Roayaie, Sasan; Schwartz, Myron // Journal of Hepato -- Biliary -- Pancreatic Sciences;Jul2010, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p385 

    More than 90% of cases of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) develop as a consequence of underlying liver disease (most commonly viral hepatitis), often resulting in impaired liver function. In such cases, transplantation is an appealing alternative as it can potentially cure both the malignancy and...

  • Reducing the incidence of post-hepatectomy hepatic complications by preoperatively applying parameters predictive of liver function. Nanashima, Atsushi; Tobinaga, Syuuichi; Abo, Takafumi; Nonaka, Takashi; Takeshita, Hiroaki; Hidaka, Shigekazu; Sawai, Terumitsu; Nagayasu, Takeshi // Journal of Hepato -- Biliary -- Pancreatic Sciences;Nov2010, Vol. 17 Issue 6, p871 

    Background/purpose: To prevent or reduce hepatic complications after hepatectomy, it is important to employ preoperative predictive parameters and to determine the indications for hepatectomy. In the present study, we evaluated risk parameters in patients who underwent hepatectomy between 1994...

    Aims: Determination of degree of liver function damadge after nonpentrative and penetrative injury as well as degree of postoperative recovery of liver function after surgical procedure of penetrative and non-penetrative injury. Methods: 60 patients were analised by retrospective-prospective...

  • Assessment of future remnant liver function using hepatobiliary scintigraphy in patients undergoing major liver resection. De Graaf, Wilmar; Van Lienden, Krijn P.; Dinant, Sander; Roelofs, Joris J. T. H.; Busch, Olivier R. C.; Gouma, Dirk J.; Bennink, Roelof J.; Van Gulik, Thomas M. // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Feb2010, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p369 

    Background: (99m)Tc-mebrofenin hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) was used as a quantitative method to evaluate liver function. The aim of this study was to compare future remnant liver function assessed by (99m)Tc-mebrofenin hepatobiliary scintigraphy with future remnant liver volume...

    Background: Hepatic inflow clamping during hepatectomy introduces ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury, and many authors regard the addition of caval occlusion as adding increased risk. Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) is one of the protective strategies employed to reduce I/R injury in animal...
