Liver Trauma: Until When We Have to Delay Surgery? A Review.

Life (Basel) 2022 May 6;12(5). Epub 2022 May 6.

General, Emergency and Transplant Surgery Department, ASST-Settelaghi and University of Insubria, 21100 Varese, Italy.

Liver involvement after abdominal blunt trauma must be expected, and in up to 30% of cases, spleen, kidney, and pancreas injuries may coexist. Whenever hemodynamics conditions do not contraindicate the overcoming of the ancient dogma according to which exploratory laparotomy should be performed after every major abdominal trauma, a CT scan has to clarify the liver lesions so as to determine the optimal management strategy. Except for complete vascular avulsion, no liver trauma grade precludes nonoperative management. Read More

Percutaneous biliary drainage for obstructive jaundice in patients with inoperable, malignant biliary obstruction.

Clin Exp Hepatol 2022 Mar 23;8(1):70-77. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

Department of Internal Medicine, Cantonal Hospital "Safet Mujić", University of Mostar, Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Aim Of The Study: Most of the malignancies leading to obstructive jaundice are diagnosed too late when they are already advanced and inoperable, with palliation being the only treatment option left. Due to progressing hyperbilirubinaemia with its consequent adverse effects, biliary drainage must be established even in advanced malignancies. This study aims to investigate and analyse factors that affect clinical outcomes of percutaneous trans-hepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) in patients with obstructive jaundice due to advanced inoperable malignancy, and identify potential predictors of patient survival.
