Masses in His Liver were Destroyed by Interventional Radiology Method!


Masses in His Liver Destroyed by Interventional Method

A swelling occurred in the chest area of ​​6-and-a-half-year-old Seher Erkentoka, who lives in Isparta, 3 months ago. In the examinations, it was determined that there were 3 different masses in a large part of his liver. The masses, the largest of which was 15 cm, had to be removed as soon as possible. For the procedure that could not be performed in Isparta, the family requested that Assoc. Dr. He applied to R. Aykut Aktaş. Seher Erkentoka, who got rid of the masses with the interventional procedure performed while preserving the liver, regained her health and her schoolmates.



THE SWING IN THE CHEST WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF LIVER MASSES

There was a swelling in the middle of Seher Erkentoka's chest area for 3 months and it started to grow gradually. Although it was said that he did not have any disease in the examinations, he suddenly started to have a high fever problem. However, the cause of the fire was never found. Later, when they applied for the opinion of a pediatric surgeon, it was understood that the swelling in the chest area was caused by a mass formed in the liver. It was said that his liver could be preserved if he was treated with the interventional method, and the family was referred to Aykut Aktaş.



OPEN SURGERY WOULD LOSE MUCH OF HIS LIVER

It was determined that İlktoka had 3 canine cysts, the largest of which was 15 cm, covering 70 percent of his liver. These; When it passed to humans in the intestinal tract of dogs, it was in a structure that grew continuously by settling in the liver and had a very high risk of explosion after exceeding 10 cm. If open surgery had been performed, more than half of the liver would have to be removed. In addition, since the cysts were formed by microscopic parasites, there was a risk of recurrence in the future in case of any drip on the internal organs during the surgery.



HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN BROKEN TO THE CHEST

The 6 and a half-year-old patient Lidertoka knew that he had a disease because he was under the control of the doctor, but he could not fully understand what it was. He continued his school life by saying "I have cysts, I am fighting germs". However, he could not play games like his peers. Because there should not have been any blow to the swelling in his chest. Despite all these negativities and the warnings of her family, Seher did not give up her love of reading.



WE PROTECTED OUR PATIENT'S LIVER

Emphasizing that the cysts were very large when the patient reached him, Assoc. Dr. R. Aykut Aktaş said, “If our patient had received a sudden blow to his abdomen before treatment, the cysts would have exploded, resulting in death. As soon as we arrived, we made the diagnosis and treatment with the interventional method. Under the guidance of ultrasound and angiography, we injected a liquid that penetrates the cyst with a needle and kills these parasites inside. Again, we took these parasites out with the needle. Then, by placing a catheter, we also destroyed the membrane where the parasites settled and removed them from the body. We inserted 3 separate catheters in our patient in the same session. We performed the procedure, which took about 1 and a half hours, with sedation. In the second month control, we saw that almost all of the parasites disappeared and the cysts disappeared. By protecting our patient's liver, we did not prevent his healthy growth.”



“My Daughter DID NOT HEAT AND DOESN'T HAVE A SIGN OF A CUT ON HIS BELLY”

Father Lidertoka expressed his sadness when he learned about the masses in his daughters with the following sentences: “When we heard about the mass, the first thing that came to our mind was cancer. I cannot describe the shock I felt. My child is so young, it was scary to even think about the possibility of cancer, but hearing that he had a mass was devastating. We came to Antalya from Isparta and talked to my teacher. We learned that the masses do not carry cancer risk and we were very relieved. I never thought that my daughter could be saved with such a treatment option. During the procedure, it did not hurt and there was no incision mark on her abdomen. Most importantly, his liver was healthy and protected.”
