Role of Multimodal Cardiac Imaging in Diagnosing a Primary Intimal Sarcoma of the Left Atrial Appendage.

Tex Heart Inst J 2019 02 1;46(1):28-31. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Primary cardiac tumors are rare, and most are benign. Intimal sarcomas are among the rarest of the malignant cardiac tumors; they are aggressive and associated with a poor prognosis. Whereas transesophageal echocardiography has been instrumental in evaluating cardiac masses, other imaging methods, such as cardiac magnetic resonance, have proved invaluable in accurately characterizing these masses.

Primary cardiac synovial sarcoma that was continuous with the mitral valve caused severe thrombocytopenia: a case report.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Feb 4;14(1):30. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Cardiac Surgery Department, Peking University People's Hospital, Beijing, 100044, China.

Background: Primary cardiac sarcomas are exceedingly rare, and they commonly result in nonspecific constitutional symptoms such as shortness of breath, weight loss, and anaemia-related fatigue and malaise. However, thrombocytopenia has very rarely been reported in association with cardiac tumours, either benign or malignant. We report one case of primary cardiac synovial sarcoma continuous with the mitral valve, which was accompanied by severe thrombocytopenia, and the platelet counts returned rapidly to a normal range early after tumour excision and without any special therapies.

Multicomponent non-pharmacological intervention to prevent delirium for hospitalised people with advanced cancer: study protocol for a phase II cluster randomised controlled trial.

BMJ Open 2019 Jan 28;9(1):e026177. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

IMPACCT - Improving Palliative, Aged and Chronic Care through Clinical Research and Translation, University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: Delirium is a significant medical complication for hospitalised patients. Up to one-third of delirium episodes are preventable in older inpatients through non-pharmacological strategies that support essential human needs, such as physical and cognitive activity, sleep, hydration, vision and hearing. We hypothesised that a multicomponent intervention similarly may decrease delirium incidence, and/or its duration and severity, in inpatients with advanced cancer. Read More

Evolution of radiotherapy techniques in breast conservation treatment.

Gland Surg 2018 Dec;7(6):576-595

Radiation Oncology Associates and Genesis Cancer Care Pty Ltd., Macquarie University Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Radiation therapy (RT) is an important component of breast cancer treatment that reduces local recurrence and improves survival after breast conservation. Breast conservation rates have increased significantly since the late 1980s and techniques have improved with greater awareness of the impact of radiation on the heart. An overview of randomized controlled trials of breast conservation using standard whole breast irradiation, whole breast hypofractionation, accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) and intraoperative radiation are reviewed.

[Differential Diagnosis of Erythrocytosis - Background and Clinical Relevance].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Jan 23;144(2):128-135. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Due to its rare incidence, erythrocytosis frequently represents a challenge for the treating doctors. The erythropoiesis (= production of erythrocytes) is located in the bone marrow, and the hormone erythropoietin (EPO) takes control in its regulation. Therefore, measurement of EPO in serum is one of the main diagnostic steps. Read More

Transthoracic radiofrequency ablation for hepatic tumor located beneath the diaphragm under one-lung ventilation: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(51):e13863

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea.

Rationale: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has become the reliable, effective, and less invasive treatment for small primary or metastatic hepatic tumors. Hepatic tumors that located immediately beneath the diaphragm are difficult to treat with percutaneous RFA due to poor visualization by percutaneous ultrasonography and the close location of the heart or lung. A transthoracic approach has been proposed to be an alternative for hepatic tumors located beneath the diaphragm that are difficult to access by conventional percutaneous or laparoscopic approaches.

Upper vena cava syndrome secondary to giant atrial myxoma.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2018 Dec;64(12):1077-1080

Clinical Emergency Unit - InCor - HCFMUSP - São Paulo, SP, Brasil.

Objective: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm, which corresponds to the most common primary heart tumour, responsible for about 50% of the cases. In general, 75-80% of myxomas are located in the left atrium, 18% in the right atrium, and more rarely in the ventricles or multicentric. Right atrial myxoma, in particular, can obstruct the tricuspid valve, causing symptoms of right heart failure, peripheral oedema, hepatic congestion, and syncope. Read More

PLoS One 2018 17;13(12):e0208875. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.

Introduction: Patients with complex health care needs (PCHCN) are individuals who require numerous, costly care services and have been shown to place a heavy burden on health care resources. It has been argued that an important issue in providing value-based primary care concerns how to identify groups of patients with similar needs (who pose similar challenges) so that care teams and care delivery processes can be tailored to each patient subgroup. Our study aims to describe the most common chronic conditions and their combinations in a cohort of elderly PCHCN. Read More

Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center, Cedars-Sinai Smidt Heart Institute, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women throughout the United States and Europe. Despite efforts to raise awareness, the sex-specific risk factors are still poorly recognized in both regions, and many women do not identify cardiovascular disease as a primary threat. During midlife, the incidence of cardiovascular disease increases dramatically, and this unique time gives an opportunity to identify both traditional cardiovascular risk factors as well as emerging risk factors unique to women.

Laparoscopic vs. open left lateral sectionectomy: An update meta-analysis of randomized and non-randomized controlled trials.

Int J Surg 2019 Jan 27;61:1-10. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Digestive Surgery Division, Department of Gastroenterology, University of São Paulo Medical School, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Left lateral sectionectomy (LLS) is thought to be the anatomical liver resection most suitable for the laparoscopic approach. Despite increasing popularity, comparative analysis of laparoscopic and open LLS are mostly limited to retrospective, underpowered studies with small sample size. Recent population-based studies and prospective trials have generated new data; however, this new body of knowledge has not been submitted systematic reviews or meta-analyses and high quality evidence regarding the actual benefits of minimally invasive LLS is lacking.

Cladribine in the remission induction of adult acute myeloid leukemia: where do we stand?

Ann Hematol 2019 Mar 23;98(3):561-579. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

NCI Community Oncology Research Program - Kansas City (NCORP-KC), 4121 W 83rd St #259, Prairie Village, Kansas, USA.

The combination of cytarabine and an anthracycline has been the standard of care for the induction of remission in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The response to treatment and survival of adult patients with AML are still variable and depend on multiple factors. Therefore, there have been many efforts to improve the response to treatment and survival rates by either increasing the cytarabine dose or adding a third agent to the standard induction chemotherapy regimen.

Focal mass-like cardiac uptake on oncologic FDG PET/CT: Real lesion or atypical pattern of physiologic uptake?

Authors:
Yiyan Liu

J Nucl Cardiol 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Nuclear Medicine Service, Department of Radiology, New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University, H-141, 150 Bergen Street, Newark, NJ, 07103, USA.

Background: Cardiac uptake on oncologic FDG PET/CT can be unpredictable. Focal or mass-like cardiac uptake not confined to normal pattern is a real challenge for interpretation due to great variability in physiologic uptake and rarity of either primary or metastatic cardiac neoplasms.

Methods And Results: Eight patients with suspicious mass-like cardiac uptake on oncologic FDG PET/CT were retrospectively analyzed with correlation to cardiac workups including contrast CT, echocardiography, and repeat PET/CT. Read More

Carney Syndrome Presented as a Pathological Spine Fracture in a 35-Year-Old Male.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Nov 16;19:1366-1369. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Fifth Surgical Clinic, Department of Surgery, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens School of Medicine, Athens, Greece.

BACKGROUND Carney complex (CNC) is a genetic disorder that presents as an adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-independent variant of endogenous Cushing syndrome. It was first reported in 1985 and was described as a form of multiple endocrine hyperplasia associated with mutations of the c-AMP-dependent protein kinase (PRKAR1A) gene that causes bilateral adrenal hyperplasia. We report a case of an incidentally found CNC in a 35-year-old male, and this case report focuses on the diagnostic scheme as well as the surgical treatment of this rare challenging condition.

Synchronous Metastatic Breast Carcinoma and Parathyroid Adenoma on 18F-FDG PET/CT and 99mTc-Sestamibi Imaging.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Feb;44(2):148-149

Department of Radiology, University of Michigan.

In addition to nuclear cardiac and breast imaging, Tc-sestamibi scintigraphy is often used to localize parathyroid adenomas. F- fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET is heavily utilized in oncology, although its use in identifying parathyroid adenomas is limited. We describe a case of a 57-year-old woman who underwent parathyroid scintigraphy and F-FDG PET/CT in the same week due to hyperparathyroidism and an enlarging breast mass, respectively. Read More

Prior malignancy impact on survival outcomes of glioblastoma multiforme; population-based study.

Int J Neurosci 2018 Oct 26:1-23. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

d Charité -Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Experimental Ophthalmology, Department of Ophthalmology, Campus Virchow Klinikum , Berlin , Germany.

Background: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patients with a prior malignancy are usually excluded from clinical trials on GBM based on the assumption that this history will affect their survival outcomes. This practice may affect clinical trial accrual and limit the gathering of knowledge essential to the formulation of therapeutic options for this patient population. However, not much is known about the real impact of these prior malignancies on the survival of patients with subsequent GBM. Read More

Linking Heart Failure to Cancer.

Circulation 2018 Aug;138(7):735-742

Cardiovascular Disease Unit, Ospedale Policlinico San Martino IRCCS & Laboratory of Cardiovascular Biology, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Genova, Italy (E.B., M.C., P.A.).

Recent epidemiological analyses suggest that incident cancer may be more common among patients with preexisting heart failure (HF) than in patients without HF. Arguments against this notion have been the increased chance of co-occurrence of 2 high-prevalence conditions and increased tumor detection in patients with HF because of intensified medical observation. However, biological data lend support to the hypothesis that HF is an oncogenic condition. Read More
