  1. 1. Colorectal Cancer Liver Metastases Effects of Chemotherapy on Liver Parenchyma and Resections

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jozef Urdzik; Agneta Norén; Per Hellman; James O Garden; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Current multimodal treatment of colorectal cancer liver metastasis often combines liver resections with preoperative chemotherapy with a 5-year survival of 40-50%. Preoperative chemotherapy includes conversion of initially non-resectable situation and control of micrometastatic disease. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Liver metastases from colorectal cancer. Different strategies and outcomes

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Valentinus Valdimarsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver metastases; Colorectal Neoplasms; Hepatectomy; Mortality; Treatment outcome; Retrospective studies; Sweden; Registries; Volume measurements; Repeat hepatectomy; liver surgery; Functional liver volume; Repeated operation; Recurrence;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) increasingly undergo liver resections. The belief is that the resection or ablation of a tumor, when possible, is the only possibility of a cure. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Colorectal Liver Metastases. Aspects on Diagnosis and Surgical Treatment

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Surgery, Blekinge Hospital, S-374 80 Karlshamn, Sweden

    Författare :Björn O B Ohlsson; [1999]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; carcinoembryonic antigen; fine-needle aspiration cytology; intraoperative ultrasonography; computed tomography; dearterialization; liver resection; Colorectal cancer; liver metastases; follow-up; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Sammanfattning : Liver is the most common site of dissemination in colorectal cancer, and untreated liver metastases are associated with a poor prognosis. The main reason for trying to detect liver metastases early is that liver resection offers a chance for cure in selected patients. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mangafodipir trisodium (MnDPDP)-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of the liver and pancreas

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Chen Wang; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Liver; pancreas; neoplasms; metastases; endocrine tumor; MR imaging; contrast medium; mangafodipir trisodium; MnDPDP; manganese; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Sammanfattning : Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the liver and pancreas is frequently performed to improve the sensitivity and specificity of lesion detection in these organs. The concept of using tissue-specific contrast media is to selectively enhance the normal parenchyma, but not lesions, so that the contrast between tumorous and normal tissue is increased, and lesion detectability improved.

  5. 5. Liver tissue characterization and influence of chemotherapy in liver surgery

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Jan Nilsson; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; colorectal liver metastases; liver regeneration; incisional hernia; steatosis; hepatic microcirculation; diffuse reflectance spectroscopy; DRS; sidestream dark-field imaging; SDF; laser speckle contrast imaging; LSCI;

    Sammanfattning : Background & Aims: Primary liver cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the western world, the majority of liver malignancies consist of colorectal metastases. Liver resection is the primary treatment for cure in liver tumor disease. LÄS MER
