Review of Meso-Rex Bypass in Pediatric Management of Portal Hypertension: Case Report

1. Abstract 1.1. Introduction: Portal hypertension (PH) is defined as pressure that is higher than normal values in the portal vein. Grand parts of the alteration of PH are founded in: the portal resistance, the flow, and the hepatic disease. Prehepatic portal hypertension (PHPH), related to thrombosis and the cavernous transformation are the major causes …

Impact of Plasmodium Falciparum Malaria on Liver and Red Blood Cell

1. Abstract Malaria remains one of the greatest public health challenges worldwide, particularly in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Estimates about 212 million and 429.000 death per year worldwide. The liver and Red Blood Cell (RBC) are the organ that has clearly changed in the early stages of infection. The aim of this study was to …

Clinical Utility of Exosomal Micrornas for Colorectal Cancer

1. Abstract Exosomes are nanometer-sized membrane vesicles secreted by normal or cancer cells, which participate in intercellular communication by transporting RNAs and proteins. Recent studies have found that some differentially expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) in exosomes play key roles in the initiation and development of Colorectal Cancer (CRC) and are potential candidates for CRC detection. In …

Use of New Rechargeable Battery and MRI-Friendly Technologies in Sacral Neuromodulation Systems to Treat Fecal Incontinence

1. Abstract Sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is a minimally invasive therapeutic technique that has been used to effectively treat overactive bladder and bowel dysfunction. There have been, however, several obstacles with standard, non-rechargeable SNM devices such as frequent battery replacement and complications with the conditional safety for full-body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Recently, rechargeable and MRI-friendly …

Perspectives on Minimally Invasive Approach to Resection of Colorectal Liver Metastases

Surgical resection is the most effective treatment approach in colorectal liver metastases. The im-proved survival in stage IV colorectal cancer is associated with a better diagnosis and evaluation, proper decision making, improved chemotherapy, and the adoption of parenchymal-sparing he-patic resections. Liver surgery was one of the last frontiers reached by minimally invasive surgery. Surgical techniques …
