Hepatocellular carcinoma with duodenal invasion resected sub
A 65-year-old man had been repeatedly treated for multiple HCCs by transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and sorafenib. However, the main tumor formerly ruptured began to involve his duodenum, causing GI bleeding. The collateral vessels from the pancreatic and omental branches entered the tumor and nullified the transarterial hemostatic embolization. Hence, HPPD was performed to preserve the major Vater papilla. Histopathological examination revealed poorly-to -moderately differentiated HCC cells invading the duodenum.
