Pancreaticoduodenectomy for hepatic portal lymph node metastasis after hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma: A clinical case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 May 27;82:105921. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Center for Pathology and Cytology, Bach Mai Hospital, Viet Nam.

Introduction: In 2018, Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was predicted to be the sixth most commonly diagnosed cancer. Extra-hepatic metastasis due to HCC is a poor prognostic factor, depending on the stage of the disease.

Presentation Of Case: We report a case of a 52-years old male who had undergone Segment 5 (S5) hepatectomy for HCC of 4.7 × 2 cm. Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) four times postoperatively was performed based on a preoperative diagnosis of a recurrent tumour at the S1. After 2 years, the solitary tumour (7.5 × 2.5 × 3.5 cm) is located behind the right lobe of the liver and the head of the pancreas. The tumour was abnormally supplied with blood from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the gastroduodenal artery (GDA). The patient was underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) to remove a large tumour. Postoperative pathology and immunohistochemical staining showed metastatic HCC. There was no tumour recurrence after 6 months.

Discussion: The organs in the body that liver cancer cells most often spread to are the lungs (44%), the portal vein (35%), the hepatobiliary ganglion (27%), and a small number of cases of bone, eye socket, bronchus metastases. Otherwise, recurrence of lymph nodes (LNs) after hepatectomy for HCC is very rare.

Conclusions: HCC can metastasize to the hepatic pedicle LN after hepatectomy and maybe confused with recurrent liver tumours in the S1. Indications for PD are feasible for solitary metastatic at peri-pancreas. Pathology incorporating immunohistochemistry can determine the origin of metastases.

H. pylori Infection and Colorectal Cancers by Anatomical Locations.

Asian Pac J Cancer Prev 2020 Aug 1;21(8):2431-2437. Epub 2020 Aug 1.

Institute of Research and Development, Duy Tan University, Da Nang 550000, Vietnam.

Background: H. pylori infection may play a role in the development of colorectal cancers (CRC). We aimed to examine the association between H. pylori infection and the risk of CRC by anatomical locations.

Methods: We conducted a case-control study on 91 incidence cases of CRC and 224 hospital controls. CRC was determined by histopathological examinations. H. pylori IgG antibody in serum was tested. We collected data on the diet, nutrition, and lifestyle by the validated semi-quantitative food frequency and demographic lifestyle questionnaire. The odds ratio and 95% confidence interval (OR (95%CI) were estimated for CRC and its subgroups.

Results: Overall 54.95% of CRC cases and 42.41% of the controls were H. pylori-seropositive, OR (95%CI): 1.56 (0.88, 2.74), p for trend=0.115. Positive dose-response association in quartiles, highest vs lowest, was observed for total CRC, OR (95%CI): 2.14 (1.00, 4.58), p for trend=0.049, for proximal colon, OR (95%CI): 1.52 (0.37, 6.25), p for trend=0.571), and for distal colon and rectum cancers combined, OR (95%CI): 2.38 (1.03, 5.50), p for trend=0.039.

Conclusions: There is a positive association between H. pylori and colorectal cancers, especially distal colon and rectum cancers combined, but additional research is needed to determine the underlying mechanism of chronic H. pylori infection-induced CRC in humans.
