Objective: The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility, safety, and outcome of laparoscopic liver resection for benign liver tumors in a multicenter setting. Background: Despite restrictive, tailored indications for resection in benign liver tumors, an increasing number of articles have been published concerning laparoscopic liver resection of these tumors. Methods: A retrospective study was performed in 18 surgical centres in Europe regarding their experience with laparoscopic resection of benign liver tumors. Detailed standardized questionnaires were used that focused on patient's characteristics, clinical data, type and characteristics of the tumor, technical details of the operation, and early and late clinical outcome. Results: From March 1992 to September 2000, 87 patients suffering from benign liver tumor were included in this study: 48 patients with focal nodular hyperplasia (55%), 17 patients with liver cell adenoma (21%), 13 patients with hemangioma (15%), 3 patients with hamartoma (3%), 3 patients with hydatid liver cysts (3%), 2 patients with adult polycystic liver disease (APLD) (2%), and 1 patient with liver cystadenoma (1%). The mean size of the tumor was 6 cm, and 95% of the tumors were located in the left liver lobe or in the anterior segments of the right liver. Liver procedures included 38 wedge resections, 25 segmentectomies, 21 bisegmentectomies (including 20 left lateral segmentectomies), and 3 major hepatectomies. There were 9 conversions to an open approach (10%) due to bleeding in 45% of the patients. Five patients (6%) received autologous blood transfusion. There was no postoperative mortality, and the postoperative complication rate was low (5%). The mean postoperative hospital stay was 5 days (range, 2-13 days). At a mean follow-up of 13 months (median, 10 months; range, 2-58 months), all patients are alive without disease recurrence, except for the 2 patients with APLD. Conclusions: Laparoscopic resection of benign liver tumors is feasible and safe for selected patients with small tumors located in the left lateral segments or in the anterior segments of the right liver. Despite the use of a laparoscopic approach, selective indications for resection of benign liver tumors should remain unchanged. When performed by expert liver and laparoscopic surgeons in selected patients and tumors, laparoscopic resection of benign liver tumor is a promising technique. [less ▲]

Pancreatic injury after trauma can occur in the child as an isolated lesion after a minor injury. The consequences can be severe in the absence of prompt diagnosis and treatment. Determination of mechanism of injury, clinical examination, blood amylase levels and abdominal CT-scan are first line steps for the evaluation of the injury. ERCP and MRI can be useful tools to further document injury to the pancreatic duct. In the absence of duct injury, conservative treatment can be applied. For the other cases, the treatment is surgical although newer techniques may be applied in selected cases. [less ▲]

Important progress has been made in the treatment of liver metastases of advanced colorectal cancer. Surgery with curative intent, when possible, shows evidence of prolonged survival. Response rate and overall survival can be improved with modern polychemotherapy. Cytotoxic drug combinations and sequential treatments sometimes make surgery possible for initially non resectable lesions. Impact of loco-regional treatment such as hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy must be defined in randomised trials. Radiofrequency ablation is also currently evaluated in clinical trials. In this review the benefit of each treatment is discussed. [less ▲]

Strictureplasty for obstructive Crohn's disease is still controversial because lesions are left in place and the suture is performed on a diseased bowel. Many surgeons prefer to perform bowel resection, hoping for fewer complications and a lower recurrence rate. In this paper, the authors reports their strictureplasty experience. They performed a systematic retrospective review of the patients suffering from Crohn's disease who underwent strictureplasties during a 10-year period in the abdominal surgery department of the University Hospital of Liege Sart Tilman, and studied the short- and long-term clinical results of 68 strictureplasties performed in 18 patients. Median follow-up was 63 months (range 12 to 144). Mortality was 0% and septic morbidity was 11% (one wound abscess and one leakage). Among the 16 patients available for the latest follow-up, symptomatic stenotic recurrence had to be medically treated in hospital for 4 patients (25%) with a recurrence delay range of 19 to 49 months. Stenosis recurrence needed re-intervention in one patient 48 months after surgery: stenosis occurred at a distance from the corrected site. These results confirmed that strictureplasty is a safe and efficient procedure in selected patients undergoing surgery for obstructive Crohn's disease. [less ▲]

Few data have been published on the course of oxalosis cardiomyopathy after combined liver and kidney transplantation in hyperoxaluria patients with myocardial involvement. We report the case of a primary hyperoxaluria type I patient with renal failure who developed end-stage cardiomyopathy. Left venticulography showed severe diffuse hypokinesia and left ventricular ejection fraction was calculated at 12%. Endomyocardial biopsy demonstrated platelike calcium oxalate crystals within the myocardium and the connective tissue, and mild perivascular fibrosis. The patient was first considered for combined liver-heart-kidney transplantation, but as his cardiac function improved slightly with an intensive dialysis program, combined liver and kidney transplantation was performed. Normal cardiac function was demonstrated at 1-year follow-up, and comparative endomyocardial biopsy showed regression of the myocardial oxalate deposits. This case adds stronger clinical, hemodynamic, and histopathological evidence that severe oxalosis cardiomyopathy may be reversed after combined liver and kidney transplantation. [less ▲]

We report herein the case of a Belgian 76-year-oId woman who developed a hepatic tumour suspected to be a breast cancer metastasis. Radiological imaging and guided biopsies were not contributive. The patient underwent an explorative laparoscopy with frozen sections that did not provide further diagnosis, and an open left bisegmentectomy was performed during the same anaesthesia. Histopathological examination of the hepatic mass showed Echinococcus multilocularis metacestodes, demonstrating alveolar echinococcosis. As our patient denied any travel in foreign countries and has undergone regular abdominal ultrasonographies since her mastectomy, it is highly likely that this alveolar echinococcosis had been contracted in Belgium. If some imported cases may be seldom managed in Belgium, to our knowledge, this case is the first occurrence of alveolar echinococcosis contracted in Belgium. This report, added to the demonstration of E. multilocaris infection of 50% of red foxes in Southern Belgium, and the potential infection of domestic cats and dogs, should attract attention of the medical community on the possible outbreak of endemic alveolar echinococcosis in Belgium, and on the related public health concerns.

Le syndrome hépatorénal (SHR) est une insuffisance rénale propre au patient porteur d’une hépatopathie chronique à un stade avancé. Le mécanisme physiopathologique, encore imparfaitement connu, associe une vasoconstriction rénale à une vasodilatation splanchnique. Aucun examen n’est spécifique au SHR qui reste ainsi un diagnostic d’exclusion. Le pronostic du SHR est très sombre, l’évolution spontanée étant presque toujours fatale en moyenne dans le mois du diagnostic. La transplantation hépatique représente le traitement idéal mais est d’application limitée étant donné la courte survie des patients. Depuis peu, un traitement médical combinant un vasoconstricteur splanchnique, la terlipressine, et un expanseur plasmatique, l’albumine, donne des résultats favorables, permettant au patient de survivre jusqu’à la transplantation hépatique.

In this paper the authors discussed the absolute and relative contraindications to liver transplantation. These contraindications are not fixed, and may change with medical progress and experience. Certainly, the recent advent of adult-to-adult living related liver transplantation may somehow change the management of patients with relative contra-indications to cadaveric liver transplantation, as they may be potential candidates for living related liver transplantation.
