    Excisional therapy for benign hepatic lesions

    With the recent advances in imaging techniques, increased numbers of hepatic lesions are found today, and surgeons are asked frequently for the best course of management. Benign hepatic tumors sometimes cause life-threatening complications and more often trigger disabling or annoying symptoms in otherwise healthy individuals. Although various imaging techniques are quite accurate in identifying cysts and hemangiomas, other benign hepatic lesions, such as adenomas, focal nodular hyperplasia and other benign solid tumors, cannot be differentiated from malignant lesions with a high degree of confidence

    Is rejection a diffuse or localized process in small-bowel transplantation?

    Utilization of endoscopy to both visualize and selectively biopsy an intestinal allograft has become the standard for early recognition and treatment of intestinal allograft rejection. Despite the widespread acceptance of the need for selective mucosal biopsies, it has not been shown that the histological features of intestinal allograft rejection are either localized or occur as part of a more diffuse phenomenon within a tubular allograft. To resolve these issues, 88 ileoscopies were performed in 12 small-bowel allograft recipients and mucosal biopsy samples were obtained at 5, 10, and 15 cm, respectively, from the ileal stoma. Each mucosal biopsy was labeled, processed, and evaluated individually for the presence and severity of any evidence for allograft rejection. The data obtained suggest that intestinal allograft rejection is a diffuse process, and biopsies obtained randomly from an ileal graft are likely to demonstrate evidence of allograft rejection when such is present. © 1994 Springer-Verlag New York Inc

    Pediatric liver transplantation

    Liver transplantation, which once was an experimental procedure of no practical interest, has become the preferred treatment for infants and children dying of almost all non-neoplastic end-stage liver diseases. Liver replacement is being provided by many well-trained teams on all of the continents, as is evident from the program today - the first international symposium on pediatric liver transplantation. I have been honored in giving the first paper in the process of introducing the remarkable work of a gifted younger generation of physicians and surgeons
