OBJECTIVES: To analyze the hepatic volume by computerized tomography using a semiautomatic computerized program of acquisition and processing digitalized images, to follow the hepatic regeneration in swine after partial hepatectomy. METHODS: Twelve female young Landrace swine were separated in three groups according to the observation time between hepatectomy and sacrifice: G5 (5 days), G10 (10 days) and G15 (15 days). All animals were submitted to partial hepatectomy of the right lobe and followed until sacrifice, when regenerated liver was ressected...

We present the first, probably autocton, case of abdominal angiostrongyliasis in Rio de Janeiro State. The patient presented initially with fever of unknown origin and severe eosinophilia developing acute abdomen due to small bowel perfuration, peritonitis, hepatic necrosis and sepsis. At the laparotomy a segment of small bowel was ressected and a liver biopsy was performed. Histopatology revealed the presence of an intra-arterial nematode, eosinophilic arteritis and granuloma. It is discussed the clinicopathological aspects of this rare and potentially severe disease that has not an established drug treatment since oral anti-helmintics are contra-indicated...

This report describes one case of primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the extrahepatic biliary tree. The main symptom was obstructive jaundice. Cholangiography demonstrated stricture of the bile duct which resembled the appearance of cholangiocarcinoma. The surgical approach allowed complete ressection. The histopathological analyses showed a centrocitic-centroblastic follicular non-Hodgkin lymphoma. She underwent chemotherapy, developed severe bone marrow hypoplasia, but 48 months after surgery, the patient is doing well...

Post-mortem angiography with Schlesinger mass was performed on 30 mongrel dogs to study the hepatic veins and its confluence into the caudal vena cava. The study was complemented by anatomic dissection of the specimens with the purpose of confronting angiographic and morphologic patterns. After sacrificing the animals by section of the cervical vessels, a right thoraco-abdominal incision was made with exposition of the vena cava followed by retrograde catheterization and injection of radiopaque mass through a polyethylene catheter...
