A wait‐and‐see strategy with subsequent self‐expanding metal stent on demand is superior to prophylactic bypass surgery for unresectable periampullary cancer

Background A patient with unresectable periampullary malignancy found at laparotomy has traditionally received a prophylactic double bypass (biliary and duodenal), associated with considerable morbidity. With modern endoscopic treatments, a surgical bypass has become questionable. This study ...

Efficacy of radiofrequency ablation compared with transarterial chemoembolization for the treatment of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma: a comparative survival analysis

Background This study aims to assess if radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has any oncological superiority over transarterial chemoembolization(TACE) on post‐hepatectomy recurrence. Methods From 2002 to 2011, 60.15% of 823 patients developed recurrence after hepatectomy for HCC. One hundred and ...

A systematic review of contralateral liver lobe hypertrophy after unilobar selective internal radiation therapy with Y90
