The Role of US Contrast Agents in US-Guided Biopsy of Focal Liver Lesions: A Pictorial Review.

Ultrasound Int Open 2019 Jan 23;5(1):E11-E19. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Ultrasound Section, Division of Surgery, Dep of Gastroenterology, Herlev Hospital, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

US-guided percutaneous biopsy of focal liver lesions (FLL) is a classic interventional procedure performed by almost all radiology units. Typically, an incidental focal finding on US or a focal indeterminate lesion diagnosed on CT, MRI or PET/CT is referred for US-guided biopsy for final diagnosis. The introduction of microbubble US contrast agents has overcome some of the limitations of standard US in diagnosing FLLs by displaying the microvasculature together with the US morphology, which has increased both the sensitivity and the specificity.

Radiofrequency-assisted liver resection: Technique and results.

Surg Oncol 2018 Sep 29;27(3):415-420. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Surgery and Cancer, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College, London, UK. Electronic address:

Background: Radiofrequency (RF)-assisted liver resection allows non-anatomical liver resection with reduced blood loss and offers the opportunity for a combination of resection and ablation. However, there are still concerns with regard to postoperative complications related to this technique. In the present study, we discuss the technical aspects of RF-assisted liver resections and analyse the rate of perioperative complications, focusing on post-hepatectomy liver failure (PLF), bile leak and abscess, and mortality.

Clinical outcome in elderly Chinese patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma treated with percutaneous microwave coagulation therapy (PMCT): A Strobe-compliant observational study.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Aug;97(35):e11618

Department of Interventional Oncology, Renji Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China.

Percutaneous microwave ablation therapy (PMCT) has been recommended for elderly hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who cannot tolerate surgery due to their age or presence of comorbidities. Few studies have investigated efficacy and treatment outcomes for PMCT treatment in these patients, especially in China, where patients are more often diagnosed and treated early in life. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of ultrasound-guided PMCT in treatment-naive elderly HCC patients, and analyzed risk factors associated with poor treatment outcomes. Read More

Evaluation of postoperative ascites after somatostatin infusion following hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma by laparotomy: a multicenter randomized double-blind controlled trial (SOMAPROTECT).

BMC Cancer 2018 Aug 23;18(1):844. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Department of General Surgery and Liver Transplantation, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Croix-Rousse University Hospital, 103, Grande Rue de la Croix-Rousse, 69317, Lyon Cedex 04, France.

Background: The majority of patients undergoing hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) suffer from underlying liver disease and are exposed to the risk of postoperative ascites, which is favored by an imbalance between portal venous inflow and a diminished hepatic volume. Finding a reversible, non-invasive method for modulating the portal inflow would be of interest as it could be used temporarily during the early postoperative course. Somatostatin, a well-known drug already used in several indications, may limit the risk of postoperative ascites and liver failure by decreasing portal pressure after hepatectomy for HCC in patients with underlying liver disease.

Endoscopic versus percutaneous biliary drainage in patients with resectable perihilar cholangiocarcinoma: a multicentre, randomised controlled trial.

Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 Oct 17;3(10):681-690. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Department of Surgery, Amsterdam University Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Cancer Center Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Electronic address:

Background: In patients with resectable perihilar cholangiocarcinoma, biliary drainage is recommended to treat obstructive jaundice and optimise the clinical condition before liver resection. Little evidence exists on the preferred initial method of biliary drainage. We therefore investigated the incidence of severe drainage-related complications of endoscopic biliary drainage or percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage in patients with potentially resectable perihilar cholangiocarcinoma.
