Read article Safe hepatectomy for the paracaval portion of the caudate lobe is technically demanding. We propose central hepatectomy using the hilar approach for resection of the paracaval portion.The right liver with the caudate lobe was totally mobilized from the inferior vena cava. Central hepatectomy with or without middle hepatic vein (MHV) resection was performed by dividing the right anterior and left medial sections vertically toward the inferior vena cava.
The bilateral Glissonian pedicles were widely exposed (hilar approach), and the liver parenchyma including the paracaval portion ....[more]

Read article A 66-year-old man was found to have a 4 cm mass in the distal transverse colon that was biopsied on a diagnostic colonoscopy performed for occult anemia. Pathology showed incomplete removal of a tubulovillous adenoma with high-grade dysplasia. The patient underwent surgical resection, with final pathology demonstrating two 5 mm foci of large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) within a background of tubulovillous adenoma, and 1 of 8 positive lymph nodes.
Poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are termed neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), and are extremely rare. Colore....[more]
