    Purpose: To analyze the associations between positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features for primary rectal tumors and metastases. Procedures: Between November 2016 and April 2018, 101 patients with rectal adenocarcinoma were included in this prospective study (NC...

  2. Updating the Phylodynamics of Yellow Fever Virus 2016-2019 Brazilian Outbreak With New 2018 and 2019 Sao Paulo Genomes

    FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY, v.13, article ID 811318, 9p, 2022

    The recent outbreak of yellow fever (YF) in Sao Paulo during 2016-2019 has been one of the most severe in the last decades, spreading to areas with low vaccine coverage. The aim of this study was to assess the genetic diversity of the yellow fever virus (YFV) from Sao Paulo 2016-2019 outbreak, in...

  3. A multidisciplinary approach to peritoneal metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma: clinical features, management and outcomes


    Aim of the study: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a lethal malignancy with heterogeneous behavior determined by liver function, clinical presentation and treatment response. Peritoneal metastasis (PM) from HCC is rare and management is challenging. We aim to report a cohort of patients with adv...

  4. Value of Primary Rectal Tumor PET/MRI in the Prediction of Synchronic Metastatic Disease (vol 24, pg 453, 2021)

  6. Postoperative outcomes in oesophagectomy with trainee involvement

    BJS OPEN, v.5, n.6, article ID zrab132, 12p, 2021

    Background The complexity of oesophageal surgery and the significant risk of morbidity necessitates that oesophagectomy is predominantly performed by a consultant surgeon, or a senior trainee under their supervision. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of trainee involvement in oeso...

  7. Platelet-albumin (PAL) score as a predictor of perioperative outcomes and survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing liver resection in a Western center

    SURGICAL ONCOLOGY-OXFORD, v.42, article ID 101752, 7p, 2022

    Background and objectives: Preoperative selection of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who will benefit from resection is highly advisable. The Platelet-Albumin (PAL) score was developed as a predictor of survival and morbidity following HCC resection. However, this has never been test...

  8. Genetic reprogramming of rHemnant duodenum may contribute to type 2 diabetes improvement after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

    NUTRITION, v.99-100, article ID 111631, 10p, 2022

    Objectives: Type 2 diabetes control occurs within a few days after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and might be related to intestinal adaptation to the new anatomic arrangement. The aim of this study was to evaluate the intestinal transcriptome response to RYGB and its correlation with markers of...

  9. Repeat hepatectomy for recurrent colorectal liver metastases: A comparative analysis of short- and long-term results


    Background: Liver recurrence after resection of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) is frequent. Repeat hepatectomy has been shown to have satisfactory perioperative results. However, the long-term outcomes and the benefits for patients with early recurrence have not been clarified. The aim of thi...

  10. Textbook outcome following oesophagectomy for cancer: international cohort study

    BRITISH JOURNAL OF SURGERY, v.109, n.5, p.439-449, 2022

    Improvements in centralization, hospital resources (i.e. daily 24-hour on-call oesophagogastric surgeons and radiologists), access to minimal access surgery, and adoption of newer techniques for improving lymph node yield could improve textbook outcome. Understanding how these individual paramete...
