EN-AB: BACKGROUND/AIMS: Inadequate remnant liver volume is the major cause of postoperative liver failure. Preoperative portal vein embolization (PVE) is the well accepted procedure to increase future liver remnant (FLR) volume and decrease the incidence of this complication. This study described the author's experience of preoperative PVE at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital since 2002. METHODOLOGY: The clinical data of 29 patients who underwent PVE were reviewed. The FLR volumes before and after the procedure were calculated by CT volumetry. PVE was performed when estimated FLR volume was < 25% in normal liver or < 40% in damaged liver and also when major liver resection combined with major intraabdominal surgery was planned. The complications after PVE and hepatectomy were recorded. RESULTS: There were no deaths or complications after PVE. The mean growth of FLR was 11%. Power of liver regeneration was suboptimal in old age patients. Sixteen patients underwent liver resection (resectability rate 55.17%). There were 2 cases of postoperative hyperbilirubinemia (12.5%). The hospital mortality rate was 1/16 (6.25%). CONCLUSIONS: PVE is a useful and safe optional procedure to increase FLR. It not only reduces the postoperative liver failure but also increases the chance of curative resection. (NO 18265651)

TI : PTEN c.511C>T nonsense mutation in a BRRS family disrupts a potential exonic splicing enhancer and causes exon skipping.
AU : Suphapeetiporn K, Kongkam P, Tantivatana J, Sinthuwiwat T, Tongkobpetch S, Shotelersuk V.
EN-AB: Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRRS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by macrocephaly, intestinal hamartomatous polyps, lipomas and pigmented macules of the glans penis. We identified a Thai family affected with BRRS. In addition to typical manifestations of BRRS, the proband has a large hepatic AVM which is rarely found in BRRS. The molecular analysis revealed affected members were heterozygous for an exon skipping-associated nonsense mutation c.511C>T in the PTEN gene. The mutation was previously assumed to be deleterious by causing a change to a termination codon, Q171X. We, herein, found that another pathogenic effect was splicing related by disrupting a potential exonic splicing enhancer (ESE) and causing an entire exon 6 skipping. The results prompted us to investigate other reported missense/nonsense mutations in the PTEN gene. We found that they do not colocalize with ESE sites, suggesting that most of their pathogenic effects are not through ESE disruption. (NO 17043057)

TI : The study of modulation transfer function of CT scanners.
JN : Thai Journal of Radiology 1993 ; 30 (1) : 43-51
EN-AB: The critical parameter concerning clinical performance of CT scanner is spatial resolution, which differ from machine to machine. Many factors affecting spatial resolution include photon statistics, detector linearity, algorithm approximation, matrix sizes and interface. MTF is a parameter for measuring and comparing resolution of different CT machines and techiques, derived from fourier transformation of point spread funtion which indicates response of system to an impulse. The study was performed by comparing MTF of two CT machines in Chulalongkorn Hospital, the GE CT/T 8800 and the Toshiba 400. The result revealed slightly difference of MTF, with superior MTF of TCT 400 over CT/T 8800 in body scanning and vice versa in head scanning at MFT equal 0.7. (NO 02532)
