    Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) to detect hapatocellular carcinoma (HCC) nodules and their feeding arteries. Methods: Twenty-four patients with HCCs who underwent TACE using CBCT in addition to conventional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) were enrolled. After both conventional DSA and CBCT through the hepatic artery were acquired, TACE were performed. The nodules were defined as an HCC when dense accumulation of iodized oil was found within the nodule on CT obtained 2 weeks after the...

    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a growing health problem in humans. HCC is considered the most common of internal malignancy which cause the death of human, but in the developed Western world, HCC is less common accompanied by increasing essentially in incidence, due to it occurs specially in chronic liver disease. HCC associated with various risk factors including hepatitis B virus infection; hepatitis C virus infection; prolonged aflatoxin exposure; and alcoholic cirrhosis. Overall, one-third of cirrhosis patients will develop HCC during their life time. Also, chemical carcinogens cause...

    Diet and nutrition therapy in pre-liver transplant patients

    Neha Bakshi , Kalyani Singh
    Malnutrition is universally prevalent among pre-liver transplantation patients. Malnutrition among cirrhotic patients had been associated to increased morbidity and mortality rates. Also, severely malnourished patients before the transplant surgery have a higher rate of complications and a decreased overall survival rate after liver transplantation. In light of the high incidence of malnutrition and associated complications, it is essential to initiate treatment as early as it is assessed. This review addresses the aetiologies of malnutrition and appropriate treatment strategies to correct...

    Aim: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common type of cancer and the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Sorafenib is an oral multikinase inhibitor that is used for unresectable advanced HCC. It is only approved systemic therapy for advanced HCC. Methods: A retrospective prospective study conducted in a multispeciality hospital with 50 patients who received sorafenib. The primary outcome of the study was to find out the survival rate of patients treated with sorafenib. The secondary outcome of the study was to explore the efficacy and safety of sorafenib in a...
