Asymptomatic aneurysm of the hepatic artery Management options


Price: €10,00

Hepatic aneurysms are rare. The majority of patients present acutely with aneurysm rupture, with an attended high mortality. Diagnosis is difficult and often delayed, owing to the non-specific symptoms and lack of clinical findings. We present three cases of hepatic artery aneurysm diagnosed in a pauci- or asymptomatic stage, illustrating the different therapeutic options described when these aneurysms are diagnosed in this stage : expectant management, embolization, or surgery.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia with portal hypertension and without liver involvement : A case report underlining the roles of increased spleno-portal blood flow and “protective” sinusoidal vasoconstriction


Price: €10,00

We report the case of a 72-year-old woman with well-controlled chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and splenomegaly who developed portal hypertension with bleeding oesophageal varices in the absence of liver fibrosis or regenerative nodular hyperplasia at surgical wedge liver biopsy. The hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) was elevated and splenectomy resulted in both its normalisation and the regression of oesophageal varices. This case shows the potential for an increased spleno-portal flow to generate severe portal hypertension likely through a “protective” sinusoidal vasoconstriction. [Product Details...]
