Anästhesisten sind speziell ausgebildete Fachärzte, die Patienten vor, während und nach einer Operation begleiten und Anästhetika verabreichen (Medikamente, die zu einem Gefühlsverlust führen). Dadurch ist gewährleistet, dass ein Patient keine Schmerzen verspürt.
Als Blutkreislauf bezeichnet man das Strömungssystem, über das das Blut im Körper zirkuliert – angetrieben von der Pumpfunktion des Herzens.
Chemosaturations-Therapie ist ein sicheres und bewährtes Verfahren bei Leberkrebs. Dabei werden hohe Dosen von leistungsstarken Antikrebs-Medikamenten direkt in der Leber freigesetzt und der Rest des Körpers vor Nebenwirkungen, die oftmals mit Krebstherapien einhergehen, geschützt.
Eine Chemotherapie (auch als Chemo bezeichnet) ist eine Art der Krebstherapie, die Medikamente verwendet, um Krebszellen zu zerstören. Da die Medikamente im Blut zirkulieren, können damit Krebszellen im ganzen Körper behandelt werden. Es existieren zahlreiche Chemotherapiemedikamente, die einzeln oder in Kombination verabreicht werden können.
Ein Facharzt, der Krankheiten operativ behandelt.
Die vollständige oder teilweise Unterdrückung des Gallenflüssigkeit-Flusses.
Gallenflüssigkeit ist eine grünlich-gelbe Flüssigkeit, die zur Verdauung von Fetten sowie zum Abtransport von verbrauchten roten Blutkörperchen und bestimmten Giften aus dem Körper notwendig ist. Gallenflüssigkeit wird in der Leber produziert und in der Gallenblase gespeichert.
Ein Gastroenterologe ist ein Arzt, der auf die Behandlung von Erkrankungen des Verdauungssystems, einschließlich der Leber, spezialisiert ist.
Hepatisch bezieht sich auf alles, was mit der Leber zu tun hat.
INTERVENTIONELLER RADIOLOGE (IR):
Ein Facharzt, der sich auf minimal-invasive Behandlungen spezialisiert hat, zu deren Durchführung bildgebende Verfahren (wie z.B. Röntgen, Ultraschall, MRT) benötigt werden.
Der Kardiotechniker ist Bestandteil des OP-Teams und arbeitet eng mit Chirurgen und anderem medizinischen Personal zusammen. Er ist verantwortlich für die Auswahl und Steuerung der Systeme, die für chirurgische Verfahren (wie z. B. Chemosaturations-Therapie) notwendig sind.
Katheter sind kleine Kunststoff-Röhrchen, die in den Körper eingeführt werden können, um Krankheiten zu behandeln oder einen chirurgischen Eingriff durchzuführen.
Die Leber ist das zweitgrößte Organ im Körper. Sie ist ca. 20 cm lang und wiegt ca. 1,5 kg. Die Leber hilft, das Blut zu reinigen und Nahrung zu verdauen. Sie ist ein für die Gesundheit unverzichtbares Organ.
Versorgt die Leber mit Blut.
Die Lymphgefäße sind Strukturen des Lymphsystems, das Flüssigkeit aus Gewebe abtransportiert. Lymphgefäße ähneln Blutgefäßen, jedoch transportieren sie kein Blut. Die von den Lymphgefäßen transportierte Flüssigkeit wird als Lymphflüssigkeit bezeichnet. Sie ist eine klare Flüssigkeit, die aus dem Blutplasma entsteht.
Krebs, der an anderer Stelle im Körper beginnt und sich auf die Leber ausbreitet (Beispiel: Melanome, Kolorektal- und Brustkrebs).
Krebs, der in der Leber beginnt (Beispiel: hepatozelluläres Karzinom und Gallengangskarzinom)
Ein Facharzt, der Krebserkrankungen mit Hilfe der Strahlentherapie behandelt.
Mit „regional“ wird die Konzentration auf ein einziges Organ bezeichnet, z. B. die Leber, ohne Auswirkung auf andere Organe.
Die Strahlen- oder Radiotherapie wird als Bestandteil der Krebstherapie zur Kontrolle oder zum Abtöten bösartiger Zellen eingesetzt. Sie verwendet eine hochenergetische Strahlung, um Tumoren zu schrumpfen und Krebszellen abzutöten. Die Strahlentherapie kann bei einigen Krebsarten zur Heilung führen, sofern sich diese auf einen Bereich des Körpers konzentrieren.
Systemisch bedeutet, dass der gesamte Körper oder zumindest mehrere Organsysteme betroffen sind. Dies steht im Gegensatz zu örtlich begrenzt oder lokal. Eine systemische Verabreichung von Medikamenten bezeichnet einen Verabreichungsweg, bei dem der gesamte Körper betroffen ist.
Dies ist eine minimal-invasive Operationsmethode zur Behandlung von soliden Tumoren. Es werden spezielle Sonden verwendet, um Krebs ohne eine reguläre Operation „zu verbrennen” oder „einzufrieren”.
Die Tumorembolisation ist ein Verfahren, bei dem die Blutversorgung von Krebszellen unterbunden wird, um deren Reduzierung oder den vollständigen Zelltod herbeizuführen. Bei der Embolisation werden Substanzen injiziert, um den Blutfluss zu Krebszellen in der Leber zu blockieren oder zu reduzieren.

A cookie is a small file containing an identifier (a series of letters and numbers) sent by a web server to your web browser. The browser will store this file, and each time the browser requests a page from the server (i.e. you click on a page on our website) the identifier is then sent back to the server.
There are two main categories of cookies - ‘persistent’ cookies and ‘session’ cookies.
A session cookie, will only last as long as the user session lasts, so will be deleted once web browser is closed. A persistent cookie, however, will continue to be stored by the browser even after the user session ends. Generally it will be stored until it reaches its set expiry date or unless deleted by the user before that date.
Cookies do not always contain information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. When cookies can identify an individual via their device, it is considered personal data.
More information about cookies can be found at: www.allaboutcookies.org.
As well as being ‘persistent’ or ‘session’, different types of cookies can be used for different purposes. Different types of cookies include:
Necessary: these cookies are required for the operation of the website, enabling services such as log-in, sign-up to newsletters, etc.
Functional: these cookies allow the server to recognise a computer on connection to the website. This allows for faster downloading of pages, but also allows for personalisation of website content, including remembering a user when they return to the website, remembering that user’s preferences (including cookie preferences), etc.
Analytical/Statistic Cookies: these cookies are used to collect data (e.g. IP addresses, popular pages, length of time on pages, site performance) in order to create and analyse information and statistics on use and performance of a website. This information is then used to help improve the way the website works. These types of cookies may be set by the website operator but are often set by ‘third parties’ on the website user’s behalf.
Advertising/Targeted: cookies may also be used to gather information on a website user for the purpose of personalising advertising for that user. As with analytical cookies, these cookies are often provided by third parties.
Our website www.againsttheodds.com & www.lebengewinnen.de uses both persistent and session type cookies for analytical/statistical purposes. The table below sets out each of these cookies and provides details on their type, when they will expire and the purpose of the cookie.
