ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the predictive factors of concurrent bile duct injury following transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on 483 HCC patients in relation to TACE postoperative complications. A total of 21 cases of bile duct injury were observed following the TACE procedure. Laboratory data, imaging data, and clinically relevant medical histories were recorded before and after one week following the TACE procedure and follow-up. The χ (2) test, or Fisher's exact probability method, was used for categorical variables. The mean of the two samples was compared using a paired t-test or Wilcoxon rank sum test. The comparison of multiple mean values was conducted using an analysis of variance. Results: Twenty-one cases with bile duct injury had intrahepatic bile duct dilatation, bile tumors, hilar biliary duct stenoses, and other manifestations. 14.3% (3/21) of patients showed linear high-density shadows along the bile duct on a plain CT scan, while 76.2% (16/21) of patients had ALP > 200 U/L one week following TACE procedure, and bile duct injury occurred in later follow-up. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and γ-glutamyl transferase (GGT) were significantly increased in all patients following TACE procedure (t = -2.721, P = 0.014; t = -2.674, P = 0.015; t = -3.079, P = 0.006; t = -3.377, P = 0.003, respectively). Conclusion: The deposition of iodized oil around the bile duct on plain CT scan presentation or the continuous increase of ALP (> 200 U/L) one week following TACE procedure has a certain predictive value for the later bile duct injury.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: A embolização e a quimioembolização transarterial hepática são procedimentos cirúrgicos usados para tratar pacientes com tumores hepáticos de origem primária e metastática, entretanto causam dor importante no período pós-operatório. O objetivo do estudo foi comparar o bloqueio epidural torácico à morfina endovenosa no tratamento da dor na síndrome pós-embolização hepática. Métodos: Foram randomizados 50 casos de pacientes submetidos a embolização transarterial hepática, os quais foram alocados em dois grupos: grupo morfina endovenosa (GV), submetido a uma dose de morfina na sala operatória; e o grupo bloqueio epidural torácico (GE), submetido a bloqueio epidural de injeção única. Todos os pacientes utilizaram analgesia endovenosa controlada pelo paciente no período pós-operatório. Foram analisados no estudo o consumo de morfina endovenosa no período pós-operatório, a dor aferida pela escala numérica verbal (ENV), o tempo de internação hospitalar, a incidência de náuseas, vômitos, prurido, retenção urinária, depressão respiratória e sonolência. Resultados: Não houve diferença do consumo médio de morfina e da ENV no período pós-operatório imediato. No primeiro dia pós-operatório o consumo médio de morfina no GV foi de 6.3 mg vs. 0.45 mg no GE, p < 0.01. A ENV no GV foi de 3.77 vs. 0.82 no GE, p<0.01. O consumo médio de morfina no período pós-operatório no GV foi de 6.91mg vs. 0.5mg no GE, p<0.01. Apenas dois pacientes do GE ficaram internados por mais de um dia, enquanto no GV oito pacientes receberam alta hospitalar a partir do segundo dia pós-operatório, entretanto não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa do tempo de internação hospitalar. Prurido foi observado em 18.2% dos pacientes do GE, e não houve ocorrência no GV, p=0.04. Conclusões: O bloqueio epidural torácico foi superior à morfina endovenosa no tratamento da dor na síndrome pós-embolização hepática.


Background: Hepatic transarterial embolization and chemoembolization are surgical procedures used to treat patients with hepatic tumors of primary and metastatic origin, however they cause significant pain in the postoperative period. The objective of the study was to compare thoracic epidural block with intravenous morphine in the treatment of pain in hepatic post-embolization syndrome. Methods: A total of 50 patients undergoing hepatic transcatheter arterial embolization were randomized and allocated into two groups: intravenous morphine group (IG) underwent to a morphine dose in the operating room; and thoracic epidural block group (EG) underwent to a single-shot epidural injection. All patients used intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) in postoperative period. Intravenous morphine consumption in the postoperative period, pain measured by the numerical rating scale (NRS), length of hospital stay, nausea, vomiting, pruritus, urinary retention, respiratory depression and drowsiness were analyzed. Results: There was no difference in the mean morphine consumption and NRS in the immediate postoperative (IPO) period. On postoperative day 1, the IG mean morphine consumption was 6.3 mg vs. 0.45 mg in EG, p<0.01. NRS in IG was 3.77 vs. 0.82 in EG, p<0.01. Morphine consumption in post-operative period in IG was 6.91 mg vs. 0.5 mg in EG, p<0.01. Only two patients in the EG were hospitalized for more than one day, while in the GV eight patients were discharged from the second postoperative day, however there was no statistically significant difference in the length of hospital stay. Pruritus was observed in 18.2% of EG patients and none in the IG, p = 0.04. Conclusions: Thoracic epidural block was superior to intravenous morphine in the treatment of pain in hepatic post embolization syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the most commonly used method for non-surgical treatment of liver cancer, and it is usually used as an adjuvant therapy in patients who have not developed intrahepatic metastases after surgical resection. Postoperative adjuvant TACE therapy may provide a prognostic benefit in liver cancer patients with high recurrence risk. This article reviews the research progress of adjuvant TACE therapy for liver cancer after radical resection.

ABSTRACT

Network Meta-analysis was used to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different oral Chinese patent medicines combined with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization(TACE) in the treatment of primary liver cancer. Randomized controlled trials of oral Chinese patent medicines for primary liver cancer were retrieved from CNKI, Wanfang, VIP, SinoMed, PubMed, Cochrane Library and EMbase databases from inception to May 2020. According to the Cochrane recommendation standard, the quality of the included articles was evaluated, and the data were analyzed by RevMan, R software and GeMTC software. A total of 10 kinds of oral Chinese patent medicines and 68 RCTs were included. Network Meta-analysis results showed that: as compared with TACE alone, 10 kinds of oral Chinese patent medicines combined with TACE showed advantages in effective rate, 1-year survival rate, 2-year survival rate, KPS score improvement rate and reduced adverse reaction incidence. In the pairwise comparison of oral Chinese patent medicines, the results showed that Cidan Capsules were superior to Jinlong Capsules and Xihuang Pills in 1-year survival rate. According to the probabi-lity ranking results: Shenyi Capsules and Ganfule were more obvious in improving the effective rate; Cidan Capsules and Shenyi Capsules were more effective in improving the 1-year survival rate; Pingxiao Capsules and Shenyi Capsules had better efficacy in improving 2-year survival rate; Huaier Granules and Shenyi Capsules had better efficacy in improving the quality of life; Huisheng Oral Liquid and Ganfule were more effective in reducing the incidence of adverse reactions(such as nausea, vomiting and leukocytosis). The current evidence showed that oral Chinese patent medicine combined with TACE was superior to TACE alone in efficacy and safety. In terms of the effective rate, 1-year survival rate, 2-year survival rate, KPS score improvement rate and reduced adverse reaction incidence, the optimal treatment measures were Shenyi Capsules, Cidan Capsules, Pingxiao Capsules, Huaier Granules and Huisheng Oral Liquid in turn. However, due to the limitations of the research, the current level of evidence is not high, and clear conclusions and evi-dence strength still need to be further verified and improved by high-quality researches.

ABSTRACT

To investigate the effects of Dahuang Zhechong Pills combined with hepatic arterial chemoembolization(TACE) on tumor index and immune function of patients with primary liver cancer(blood stasis and collaterals blocking type), observe its application values in treatment of such patients, and provide effective treatment means for this disease. From June 2019 to December 2019, 79 patients with confirmed primary liver cancer(blood stasis and collaterals blocking type) treated in Wenzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine were included in this study, all of which were grouped with random number table method before inclusion in this study. 40 patients in the control group were treated with TACE, while 39 patients in the observation group were treated with Dahuang Zhechong Pills combined with TACE. The efficacy was compared between two groups after 4 weeks of treatment. The immune function indexes of serum CD4~+ cells, CD4~+/CD8~+, CD3~+ cells of the observation group were higher than those in control group after treatment(P<0.05), and tumor indexes such as serum alpha-fetoprotein(AFP), carbohydrate antigen 199(CA199) and glutamic-pyruvic transaminase(ALT), total bilirubin(TBiL) levels were lower than those in the control group, with statistically significant differences(P<0.05). Plasma vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF), transforming growth factor-β1(TGF-β1), and matrix metalloprotei-nase-2(MMP-2) levels in the observation group were lower than those in the control group after treatment, with statistically significant differences(P<0.05). The total effective rate of the observation group was 87.18%, higher than 67.50% in the control group, and the benefit rate was 94.87% in the observation group, higher than 85.00% in the control group(P<0.05). The total incidence of adverse reactions such as bone marrow suppression, gastrointestinal reaction, fever, renal function injury and peripheral nerve injury in the observation group was 48.72%, lower than 82.50% in the control group, with statistically significant difference(P<0.05). In summary, the combination of Dahuang Zhechong Pills with TACE could improve immunity, protect liver function, and reduce the risk of metastasis and the incidence of adverse reactions from chemotherapy, so it is worth popularizing for patients with primary liver cancer(blood stasis and collaterals blocking type).

ABSTRACT

Hepatic resection represents the first-line treatment for patients with resectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the 5-year recurrence rates of HCC after surgery have been reported to range from 50% to 70%. In this review, we evaluated the available evidence for the efficiency of adjuvant treatments to prevent HCC recurrence after curative liver resection. Antiviral therapy has potential advantages in terms of reducing the recurrence rate and improving the overall survival (OS) and/or disease-free survival of patients with hepatitis-related HCC. Postoperative adjuvant transarterial chemoembolization can significantly reduce the intrahepatic recurrence rate and improve OS, especially for patients with a high risk of recurrence. The efficacy of molecular targeted drugs as an adjuvant therapy deserves further study. Adjuvant adoptive immunotherapy can significantly improve the clinical prognosis in the early stage. Randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies evaluating adjuvant immune checkpoint inhibitors are ongoing, and the results are highly expected. Adjuvant hepatic artery infusion chemotherapy might be beneficial in patients with vascular invasion. Huaier granule, a traditional Chinese medicine, has been proved to be effective in prolonging the recurrence-free survival and reducing extrahepatic recurrence. The efficiency of other adjuvant treatments needs to be further confirmed by large RCT studies.

ABSTRACT

Surgical resection (SR) is recommended as a radical procedure in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, postoperative recurrence negatively affects the long-term efficacy of SR, and preoperative adjuvant therapy has therefore become a research hotspot. Some clinicians adopt transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as a preoperative adjuvant therapy in patients undergoing SR to increase the resection rate, reduce tumor recurrence, and improve the prognosis. However, the findings of the most relevant studies remain controversial. Some studies have confirmed that preoperative TACE cannot improve the long-term survival rate of patients with HCC and might even negatively affect the resection rate. Which factors influence the efficacy of preoperative TACE combined with SR is a topic worthy of investigation. In this review, existing clinical studies were analyzed with a particular focus on several topics: screening of the subgroups of patients most likely to benefit from preoperative TACE, exploration of the optimal treatment regimen of preoperative TACE, and determination of the extent of tumor necrosis as the deciding prognostic factor.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is thought to prevent recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but its efficacy is a matter of controversy. OBJECTIVES: We investigated the effect of preventive TACE on the tumor, nodes, metastasis (TNM) classification in cases of stage II HCC (T2N0M0) after R0 resection. DESIGN AND SETTING: Case-control study conducted in a tertiary-level public hospital. METHODS: We analyzed recurrence rates and mortality rates over time for 250 consecutive cases of HCC in TNM classification cases of stage II HCC (T2N0M0) after R0 resection. These cases were divided into patients who underwent TACE (TACE+) and presented microvascular invasion (MVI+; n = 80); TACE+ but did not present MVI (MIV−; n = 100); MVI+ but did not undergo TACE (TACE−, n = 30); and TACE−/MVI− (n = 40). RESULTS: MVI+ patients in the TACE+ group had significantly lower recurrence rates and mortality rates at one, two and three years than those in the TACE- group (all P < 0.05). Among MVI- patients, the TACE+ group did not have significantly lower recurrence rates and mortality rates at one, two and three years than the TACE- group (all P > 0.05). Regardless of whether TACE was performed or not, MVI− patients had significantly lower recurrence rates and mortality rates at two and three years after their procedures than did MVI+ patients (all P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Recurrence rates and mortality rates for MVI+ patients were significantly higher than for MVI− patients, beyond the first year after TACE. Postoperative adjuvant TACE may be beneficial for HCC patients with MVI.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Transarterial radioembolization (TARE) with yttrium-90 microspheres is a palliative locoregional treatment, minimally invasive for liver tumors. The neoadjuvant aim of this treatment is still controversial, however, selected cases with lesions initially considered unresectable have been enframed as candidates for curative therapy after hepatic transarterial radioembolization. We report three cases in which the hepatic transarterial radioembolization was used as neoadjuvant therapy in an effective way, allowing posterior potentially curative therapies.


RESUMO A radioembolização transarterial hepática com microesferas de ítrio-90 é uma modalidade paliativa de tratamento locorregional minimamente invasiva. O objetivo neoadjuvante deste tratamento ainda é controverso, mas casos selecionados de lesões consideradas inicialmente irressecáveis reenquadram-se como candidatos à terapia curativa após a radioembolização transarterial hepática. Relatamos três casos em que a radioembolização transarterial hepática foi utilizada como terapia neoadjuvante de forma efetiva possibilitando aplicação posterior de terapias potencialmente curativas.

ABSTRACT

La quimioembolización transarterial hepática es uno de los tratamientos del carcinoma hepatocelular irresecable en el que se han descrito de forma infrecuente lesiones isquémicas asociadas. Ante la aparición de sintomatología gastrointestinal alta inusual o que exceda el denominado síndrome postquimiembolización tras el procedimiento debe valorarse la realización de una gastroscopia para descartar la aparición de dichas complicaciones. Las variantes anatómicas con origen común de arterias gástricas y hepáticas pueden favorecer la migración de las microesferas hacia territorio gástrico obligando a valorar la eventual modificación de la técnica para prevenirlo.


Transarterial hepatic chemoembolization is one of the treatments of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma in which associated ischemic lesions have been described infrequently. When unusual upper gastrointestinal symptoms or exceeding the so-called post-chemoembolization syndrome after the procedure, the performance of a gastroscopy should be assessed to rule out the occurrence of these complications. The anatomical variants with common origin of gastric and hepatic arteries can favor the migration of the microspheres into gastric territory, forcing the possible modification of the technique to prevent it.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to identify the prognostic factors and compare the long-term outcomes of staged hepatectomy and transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) for patients with spontaneous rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: This study is a multicenter, retrospective analysis of patients with newly diagnosed ruptured HCC. To compare overall survival between staged hepatectomy group and TACE alone group, we performed propensity score-matching to adjust for significant differences in patient characteristics. To identify prognostic factors, the clinical characteristics at the time of diagnosis of tumor rupture were investigated using Cox-regression analysis. RESULTS: From 2000 to 2014, 172 consecutive patients with newly diagnosed ruptured HCC were treated in 6 Korean centers. One hundred seventeen patients with Child-Pugh class A disease were identified; of which 112 were initially treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for hemostasis and five underwent emergency surgery for bleeder ligation. Of the 112 patients treated with TAE, 44 underwent staged hepatectomy, 61 received TACE alone, and 7 received conservative treatment after TAE. Those that underwent staged hepatectomy had significantly higher overall survival than those that underwent TACE alone before matching (P 1,200 mL, and tumor size >5 cm were associated with poor overall survival. CONCLUSION: Staged hepatectomy may offer better long-term survival than TACE alone for spontaneous rupture of HCC. Staged hepatectomy should be considered in spontaneous rupture of HCC with resectable tumor and preserved liver function.

ABSTRACT

To investigate the value of the total liver CT perfusion imaging in the evaluation of rabbit VX2 liver tumors treated with TACE and apatinib.
 Methods: Thirty-six rabbit VX2 liver cancer models were established and randomly divided into 4 groups. Group A: simple TACE group; Group B: simple oral administration of apatinib mesylate; Group C: TACE + oral apatinib mesylate; Group D: control group, administration of saline. CT perfusion imaging (CTPI) was performed before treatment and on the 7 and 14 days after the treatment to acquire perfusion parameters including blood flow (BF), blood volume (BV), MTT (mean transit time), surface permeability (PS), and hepatic artery fraction (HAF). One tumor rabbit was sacrificed in each group after the first perfusion scan, and the remaining tumor rabbits were sacrificed after the last perfusion scan on the 14th day of the treatment. The borders of the tumors were stained immunohistochemically, and microvascular density (MVD) was measured by anti-CD34. The differences of perfusion parameters were compared to evaluate the liver hemodynamic changes, and statistical repeated measurement variance analysist correlation analysis were performed.
 Results: There were no significant differences in CTPI parameters of BF, BV, MTT, HAF and PS between the 4 groups before treatment (P>0.05). After the treatment, HB, HAF and PS were decreased significantly in Group A, B, and C and slightly increased in the Group D. The value of MVD after 14 d treatment was 80.1±16.4 in Group A, 50.2±11.2 in Group B, 27.4±9.7 in Group C, 68.7±12.7 in Group D, respectively. The value of MVD in the Group C were significantly lower than that in Group A, B, and D. It showed positive correlation between BF, HAF, PS and MVD in Group B, C, and D, and there was no significant correlation between BV, MTT and MVD. It showed no significant correlation between MVD and each CTPI parameter in Group A.
 Conclusion: Total liver CT perfusion can quantitatively evaluate the blood perfusion information of rabbit liver VX2 tumor after TACE. TACE combined with oral apatinib can effectively inhibit tumor growth and improve the therapeutic effect of VX2 tumor.

ABSTRACT

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignant tumor originating from liver cells. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is the main cause of HCC in 80% of Chinese patients. Pathologically, HCC is usually a kind of tumor with rich blood supply. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) can block the blood supply of the tumor, besides, high concentration of chemotherapeutic drugs can be accumulated within the tumor, and therefore TACE can kill tumor cells to the maximum extent. TACE has been recognized as one of the most commonly used non-surgical treatments for HCC. In view of this, after in-depth discussion the expertsfrom Chinese College of Interventionalists, Chinese Medical Doctor Association, put forward,《Chinese clinical practice guidelines for transarterial chemoembolization of hepatocellular carcinoma》. This《Guidelines》contains the following contents about TACE: brief introduction of HCC, indications and contraindications, perioperative treatment, euipment and drug preparation, ethical and informed consent, preparation of the patients, procedure,complications and management, evaluation and follow-up, and comprehensive therapy.

ABSTRACT

Ultraselective conventional transarterial chemoembolization (cTACE), defined as cTACE at the most distal portion of the subsubsegmental hepatic artery, is mainly performed for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ≤5 cm. Distal advancement of a microcatheter enables injection of a larger volume of iodized oil into the portal vein in the limited area under non-physiological hemodynamics. As a result, the reversed portal flow into the tumor through the drainage route of the tumor that occurs when the hepatic artery is embolized is temporarily blocked. By adding gelatin sponge slurry embolization, both the hepatic artery and portal vein are embolized and not only complete necrosis of can be achieved. Ultraselective cTACE can cure small HCCs including less hypervascular tumor portions and replace surgical resection and radiofrequency ablation in selected patients.

ABSTRACT

The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy, safety, and prognostic factors of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) in Chinese hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Patients (n=102) diagnosed as primary HCC were consecutively enrolled in this retrospective cohort study. Treatment responses were assessed following the modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors. Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were evaluated, and adverse events (AEs) as well as liver function-related laboratory indexes of all DEB-TACE records (N=131) were assessed. Complete response (CR) rate, objective response rate, and disease control rate were 51.0, 87.3, and 95.1%, respectively, at 1-3 months post DEB-TACE. The mean PFS and OS were 227 (95%CI: 200-255) days and 343 (95%CI: 309-377) days, respectively. Multivariate logistic regression revealed that portal vein invasion and abnormal total protein (TP) were independent predictive factors for worse CR, and multivariate Cox's regression analysis showed that multifocal disease independently correlated with shorter PFS. Most of the liver function-related laboratory indexes worsened at 1 week but recovered at 1-3 months post-treatment, only the percentage of patients with abnormal ALP increased at 1-3 months. In addition, 112 (85.5%), 84 (64.1%), 53 (40.5%), 40 (30.5%), and 16 (12.2%) patients had pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, and other AEs, respectively. DEB-TACE is efficient and safe in Chinese HCC patients, and portal vein invasion, abnormal TP level as well as multifocal disease could be used as unfavorable prognostic factors to DEB-TACE treatment.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose: To investigate the prognostic value of 17 platelet-based prognostic scores in patients with malignant hepatic tumors after TACE therapy. Methods: In total, 92 patients were divided into death group and survival group according to long-term follow-up results. The AUC was calculated to determine the optimal cut-off values for predicting prognosis. To determine better prognostic models, platelet-based models were analyzed separately after being showed as binary according to cut-off values. Cumulative survival rates of malignant hepatic tumors were calculated using Kaplan-Meier curves and differences were analyzed by the log-rank test. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to identify platelet-based prognostic scores associated with overall survival. Results: Univariate analysis showed that APGA, APRI, FIB-4, FibroQ, GUCI, King's score, Lok index, PAPAS, cirrhosis, number of tumors, vascular cancer embolus, AFP, ALP and APTT were significantly related to prognosis. A multivariate analysis showed that the APGA, number of tumors, ALP and APTT were independently associated with overall survival. Conclusion: This study showed that the APGA, a platelet-based prognostic score, was an independent marker of prognosis in patients with malignant hepatic tumors after TACE and was superior to the other platelet-based prognostic scores in terms of prognostic ability.

ABSTRACT

But : évaluer notre technique de chimioembolisation en rapportant les problèmes techniques, les complications et les résultats obtenus. Matériels et méthodes : il s'agissait d'une étude rétrospective, descriptive, à propos de 14 patients porteurs de CHC sur cirrhose CHILD A selon les critères de BCLC. Un total de 20 procédures de chimioembolisation lipiodolée (CEL), a été réalisé en 3 ans d'activité avec un maximum de 2 séances chez 6 patients. Résultats : l'âge moyen de notre population d'étude était de 40,5 ans avec des extrêmes de 21 ans et 52 ans. Six patients avaient une lésion unique de plus de 5 cm, Quatre avaient 2 lésions et le reste présentait des lésions multiples de plus de 3 cm. Trois variantes anatomiques ont été répertoriées. Nous avons eu à réaliser un cathétérisme sélectif des artères hépatiques droite et gauche au cours de 9 procédures et 6 cathérismes sélectifs isolés dont 5 à droite et 1 à gauche. Un cathétérisme supra sélectif a été réalisé dans 6 cas. Un seul problème technique a été rencontré en rapport avec un spasme artériel. Le syndrome post chimioembolisation a été observé au décours de 5 cures. Aucune complication majeure n'a été notée en per ou post procédure. La réponse tumorale était satisfaisante dans 65% des cas avec nécrose tumorale chez 9 patients. Sept cas de progression tumorale ont été notés. Le taux de survie est évalué à 78% à 1 an et à 50% à 2 ans avec 3 cas de décès et 4 patients perdu de vue. Conclusion : Le respect strict des indications et l'application rigoureuse des procédures techniques constituent les meilleurs garants pour éviter les complications, maximiser l'efficacité de la CEL et augmenter la survie des patients. La CEL constitue un traitement palliatif de choix au Sénégal, un pays où le diagnostic de CHC est souvent fait à un stade tardif, limitant les possibilités de traitement curatif

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in cirrhosis is diagnosed, most of times, when it is not susceptible to curative treatment. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a palliative therapeutic option with heterogeneous results. The HAP score stratifies patients who will benefit from the first TACE. Objective: To evaluate if the HAP score is a prognostic factor of HCC treated with TACE. Materials and methods: Retrospective cohort study in cirrhotic patients with HCC and first TACE at the Edgardo Rebagliati Martins National Hospital, Lima-Peru, from June 2011 to June 20139. The HAP score was applied, mortality and survival were observed with a follow-up of 36 months. Results: We included 54 patients with age of 67.7±9.9 years, 59.3% Child-Pugh A and 40.7% Child-Pugh B, MELD score of 11±2.7; 51.9 and 40.7% were BCLC A and B, respectively; 66.7% had a single tumor and 70.4% had a predominant tumor <5cm. The HAP score classified 8, 14, 26 and 6 patients as HAP A, B, C and D, respectively. The overall survival was 19.5±11.2 months and 32.8±6.5 months for HAP A, 24.9±14.8 months for HAP B, 13.9±5.2 months for HAP C and 14±6.6 months for HAP D. There were no deaths at 12 months in HAP A. At 24 months, mortality for HAP C and D was 100%. At 36 months, the survival rate for HAP A and B was 75 and 42.9%, respectively. Conclusions: The HAP score is a useful tool to guide the management decisions of cirrhotic patients with HCC requiring TACE due to its value in predicting mortality and survival.


Introducción: El carcinoma hepatocelular (CHC) en cirrosis es diagnosticado, la mayoría de veces, cuando no es susceptible de tratamiento curativo. La quimioembolizacón transarterial (QETA) es una opción terapéutica paliativa con resultados heterogéneos. El HAP score estratifica a los pacientes que se beneficiarán con la primera QETA. Objetivo: Demostrar si el HAP score es un factor pronóstico del CHC tratado con QETA. Materiales y métodos: Estudio de cohortes retrospectivo en pacientes cirróticos con CHC y primera QETA en el Hospital Nacional Edgardo Rebagliati Martins, Lima-Perú, junio-2011 a junio-2013. Se aplicó el HAP score, y se observó la mortalidad y sobrevida con un seguimiento de 36 meses. Resultados: Se incluyeron 54 pacientes con edad de 67,7±9,9 años, 59,3% Child-Pugh A y 40,7% Child-Pugh B, MELD de 11±2,7; 51,9 y 40,7% fueron BCLC A y B, respectivamente; 66,7% tuvo tumor único y el 70,4% tumor predominante menor a 5 cm. Se clasificó como HAP A, B, C y D a 8, 14, 26 y 6 pacientes, respectivamente. La sobrevida general fue 19,5±11,2 meses; y 32,8±6,5 meses para HAP A, 24,9±14,8 meses para HAP B, 13,9±5,2 meses para HAP C y 14±6,6 meses para HAP D. A los 24 meses, la mortalidad para HAP C y D fue 100%. A los 36 meses, la sobrevida para HAP A y B fue 75 y 42,9%, respectivamente. Conclusiones: El HAP score es una herramienta útil que orienta al manejo del CHC tributario de QETA por su valor pronóstico de mortalidad y sobrevida.

ABSTRACT

Acute obstructive cholangitis due to the migration of necrotized tumor fragment(s) has been rarely reported after transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). We report an unusual case of it, which was demonstrated by computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography. We suggest that in the setting of acute biliary obstruction after TACE with a CT-demonstrated new intraductal soft tissue lesion with or without a radiopaque portion, along with no or less visualization of a previous tumor located inside or near the duct, the possibility of intraductal migration of a necrotic tumor fragment should be considered. Both clinicians and radiologists should become familiar with this condition because it may be ignored or misinterpreted as biliary calculi.
