Endoscopic submucosal dissection vs. endoscopic mucosal resection for early Barrett's neoplasia in the West: a retrospective study
ENDOSCOPY, v.54, n.5, p.439-446, 2022
Background The difference in clinical outcomes after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for early Barrett's esophagus (BE) neoplasia remains unclear. We compared the recurrence/residual tissue rates, resection outcomes, and adverse events after ESD and E...
Risk Stratification in Cancer Patients with Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding: Comparison of Glasgow-Blatchford, Rockall and AIMS65, and Development of a New Scoring System
CLINICAL ENDOSCOPY, v.55, n.2, p.240-247, 2022
Background/Aims: Few studies have measured the accuracy of prognostic scores for upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) among cancer patients. Thereby, we compared the prognostic scores for predicting major outcomes in cancer patients with UGIB. Secondarily, we developed a new model to detect pat...

A multidisciplinary approach to peritoneal metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma: clinical features, management and outcomes
CLINICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL HEPATOLOGY, v.8, n.1, p.42-48, 2022
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...

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...
Repeat hepatectomy for recurrent colorectal liver metastases: A comparative analysis of short- and long-term results
HEPATOBILIARY & PANCREATIC DISEASES INTERNATIONAL, v.21, n.2, p.162-167, 2022
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...
Liver Surgery: Important Considerations for Pre- and Postoperative Imaging
RADIOGRAPHICS, v.42, n.3, p.722-740, 2022
Liver surgery may be a curative treatment option not only for primary liver neoplasms but also for liver metastases in selected patients.
