Irinel Popescu, Traian Dumitrascu
REVIEW, November 2017
Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-22-3-108
Read article Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an important healthcare problem because is a leading cause of death by cancer. PDAC is a highly lethal disease with a very dismal prognosis.

Most patients present advanced disease at diagnosis. The management of a patient diagnosed with PDAC should be discussed in a multidisciplinary team in high-volume centers.

Pancreatectomy represents the single hope of long-term survival for a patient with PDAC but the resectability rate is less than 20% of the cases. Several progresses were observed in the last years regarding the su....[more]

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-22-3-117
Read article Background: Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a dedicated method for treating intermediate stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The Lipiodol used in conventional TACE presents the advantage of being easily visualized and quantified on Computed Tomography (CT).

Methods: Immediate postprocedural (baseline) and follow-up CT examinations of twenty patients treated by TACE for HCC were evaluated in this study. Lipiodol uptake on baseline images and progressive washout on follow-up examinations were assessed.

Results: Statistically ....[more]

CASE REPORT, November 2017
Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-22-3-127
Read article Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly used in the diagnosis of multiple myeloma (MM). The new statement of the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) introduced the role of Whole-body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (WB-MRI) in the management of patients with this haematological disease.

We report the case of a hospitalized patient in the haematology department, who was diagnosed with MM and investigated by WB-MRI in order to achieve a complete lesions report, and staging of the disease.

The presented case illustrates more lesions of the spine, long bones ....[more]

CASE REPORT, November 2017
Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-22-3-132
Read article Various options are available as sources of autologous veins for vascular reconstruction in cases of vascular injury or venous vascular invasion of solid tumours. However, in such cases, the time spent preparing the autologous vein graftas well asthe associated morbidities of the donor region influence the postoperative course.

We present the first case of peritoneal patch utilisation in order to re-establish the vascular continuity after superior mesenteric vein (SMV) resection due to pancreatic tumour invasion, in a 57-year-old man. If prosthetic material is considered, a....[more]

Abdominal examination showed signs of generalized peritonitis. CT abdomen was done without contrast because of impaired renal function.
The findings consisted of a large pancreatic neck and body mass, fat stranding, free fluid and distended bowel loops. Emergency laparotomy revealed a voluminous pancreatic mass arising from the neck and bo....[more]
