The hepatic artery (HA) related complications after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) remains an important cause of increased risk of post-transplant mortality. The timing of occurrence of hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) after transplantation and the timely intervention are the determining factors in the survival of the recipients. Re-exploration and revision of the hepatic artery anastomosis or medical treatment with urokinase therapy are the lifesaving treatment options. We describe our successful outcome after arterial urokinase infusion as an initial therapy for the LDLT ....[more]
Endoscopic Mucosal Resection Using Band Ligation (EBL) Will Serve Two Ends in the Treatment for Small Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumors? ....

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-23-3-166
Read article Background: Rectal neuroendocrine tumor (NET)s that are <10mm in diameter can be treated with local excision including endoscopic resection. Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of rectal NETis often associated with involvement of the resection margin. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has more histologically complete resection. However, ESD can lead to more serious complications and longer procedure time than EMR.
Endoscopic mucosal resection using band ligation (EBL) is a new technique for eliminating the rectal NET. The aim of the this study is to evaluate the ther....[more]

Read article Introduction: Pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) are recognized as pre-malignant lesions, corresponding to less than 3% of all pancreatic exocrine neoplasms. The study objectives were: to evaluate the surgical results of our institution, to identify factors predicting malignancy in IPMN and to assess the validity of recently introduced IPMN guidelines in our population.

Methods: A single center, retrospective study in patients submitted to surgical resection for IPMN was conducted, between 1 2008-6 2016, to identify predictive factors f....[more]
Impact of Preoperative Endoscopic Biliary Drainage on Postoperative Outcome after Pancreaticoduodenectomy
Hazem M Zakaria, Nahla K Gaballa, Mohammed Abbas, Osama Elbahr, Talaat Zakareya
Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-23-3-178
Read article Background: The value of preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) on the surgical outcome after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is still a point of controversy.The aim of this study was to identify the impact of biliary drainage (BD) prior to PD on the postoperative outcome.
Methods: The data of patients, who underwent PD from February 2009 to February 2017, were retrospectively studied. A comparison was performed between 2 groups of patients; group A (with PBD) and group B (without PBD), according to preoperative, operative and postoperative data.
Results: PD....[more]

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-23-3-186
Read article Background: In Egypt, newly diagnosed cases of cholangiocarcinoma are increasing annually. Several reports from Nile Delta show high levels of heavy metals and organocholorine pesticides in the soil and water. We assess serum levels of Heavy metals [Zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), Cobalt (Co), Cadmium (Cd), Chromium (Cr) and Iron (Fe)] as markers of exposure in cholagiocarcinoma patients and healthy controls from the Nile Delta in Egypt and its correlation with tumor differentiation and tumor marker CA 19-9.

Methods: We included 45 cholangiocarcinoma patients and 20 hea....[more]
