Outcomes of Pancreaticoduodenctomy in Patients with Chronic Hepatic Dysfunction Including Liver Cirrhosis: Results of a Retrospective Multicenter Study by the Japanese.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Second Department of Surgery, Wakayama Medical University School of Medicine.

Purpose: Since there is no reliable evidence on the safety of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) in chronic hepatic dysfunction (CHD) including liver cirrhosis (LC), the effects of CHD on patients undergoing PD were investigated.

Methods: This multi-institutional retrospective study analyzed 529 patients with CHD, including 105 patients diagnosed with LC, who underwent PD at 82 high-volume institutions between 2004 and 2013.

Results: The in-hospital mortality rate was 5. Read More

Management of acute cholecystitis in high-risk patients.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Department of Surgery. Hospital, Universitario de Salamanca, Paseo de San Vicente, 88-132, 37007, Salamanca, Spain.

The new flowchart for the management of acute cholecystitis proposed by Okamoto and colleagues does consider not only the grade of cholecystitis but also makes an effort to quantify the surgical risk, of decision making, for the patients. The point is whether or not the tools selected for risk assessment, Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) and the American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA-PS), may offer the best approach to quantify risk. Although CCI has been evaluated for predicting in-hospital mortality, it was designed and widely used for estimating the relationship between life expectancy or long-term mortality and clinical past history, rather than estimating surgical risk.

Programmed Death-1 Inhibitor for Occupational Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma Caused by Chlorinated Organic Solvents.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

In 2014, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified 1,2-dichloropropane (DCP) as class 1 (carcinogenic for humans) and dichloromethane (DCM) as group 2A (possibly carcinogenic to humans) because of a cholangiocarcinoma outbreak among young adult workers; they were exposed to high concentrations of DCP and/or DCM for a long-term in an offset color proof-printing department at a printing company in Osaka, Japan. The Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare of Japan classified this type of cholangiocarcinoma as "occupational cholangiocarcinoma." Our previous study showed that other than the main tumor, chronic bile duct injury and precancerous lesions were observed at various sites of the large bile duct . Read More

Surgical and histological boundary of the hepatic hilar plate system: basic study relevant to surgery for hilar cholangiocarcinoma regarding the "true" proximal ductal margin.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 May 31;26(5):159-168. Epub 2019 Mar 31.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine, 3-9 Fukuura, Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama 236-0004, Japan.

Background: We sought to expand the clinico-anatomical limit of the proximal ductal margin (Limit-PDM) for resectability of hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCCA).

Methods: The practical boundary of the hilar plate (PBHP) was defined as the location where the bile duct (BD) could not be isolated by dissection. The distance between PBHP and two well-known clinical landmarks of Limit-PDM, the right edge of the bifurcation of the anterior and posterior branch of the right portal vein (Posterior-Landmark) and the left edge of the umbilical portion of the portal vein (Left-Landmark), and histological features around the PBHP were assessed using 55 adult cadaver livers.

Department of Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Surgery, School of Medicine, International University of Health and Welfare, Ichikawa, Japan.

IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) is a distinct type of cholangitis frequently associated with autoimmune pancreatitis and currently recognized as a biliary manifestation of IgG4-related disease. Although clinical diagnostic criteria of IgG4-SC were established in 2012, differential diagnosis from primary sclerosing cholangitis and cholangiocarcinoma is sometimes difficult. Furthermore, no practical guidelines for IgG4-SC are available. Read More

Impact of pretreatments on outcomes after living donor liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Feb 21;26(2):73-81. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Hepatobiliary Pancreatic Surgery and Transplantation, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.

Background: The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of pretreatments on outcomes after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Methods: From February 1999 to March 2015, 223 patients underwent LDLT for HCC. Until December 2006, there was no restriction in patient selection criteria regarding the number and size of tumors, following which we implemented the Kyoto criteria (tumor number ≤10, maximal diameter ≤5 cm, and des-gamma-carboxy prothrombin ≤400 mAU/ml) since January 2007.

Congenital absence of the portal vein: translated version.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Aug;25(8):359-369

Department of Transplant Surgery, Jichi Medical University, 3311-1 Yakushiji, Shimotsuke City, Tochigi 329-0498, Japan.

Congenital portosystemic shunt (CPS) is classified into type I (congenital absence of the portal vein) and type II, depending on the presence or absence of the intrahepatic portal vein. Reports still exist on cases in which psychiatric diseases or mental retardation was diagnosed or cases in which diagnosis and treatment are not performed until severe pulmonary complications occur, indicating the need to recognize CPS. Herein, we reviewed epidemiology, etiology, classification, symptom, diagnosis, and treatment based on clinical view points of CPS. Read More

Validity of the Iwate criteria for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing minimally invasive liver resection.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Sep 6;25(9):403-411. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Surgery, Campus Charité Mitte and Campus Virchow-Klinikum, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Background: Recently proposed by the International Consensus Conference on Laparoscopic Liver Resection, the Iwate criteria (IC) can be used by surgeons to predict the operative difficulty of laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) and were validated in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common indication for LLR.

Methods: The IC comprise six preoperative factors that allow the grading of operative difficulty as low, intermediate, advanced, or expert. IC scores were validated in patients with HCC who underwent LLR (n = 77). Read More

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2018 Aug;25(8):370-376

Department of Gastroenterological and Transplant Surgery, Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, 1-2-3 Kasumi, Minami-ku, Hiroshima, 734-8551, Japan.

Background: Liver natural killer (NK) cells are the first cells to respond to infections and malignancies, such as intraoperative tumor spill. Liver NK cells express tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), a marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the influence of TRAIL single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on hepatectomy patients with HCC remains unclear. Read More
