J Clin Med 2022 Jun 10;11(12). Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Department of Neurosurgery, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität Berlin, and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, 13353 Berlin, Germany.

The utilization of fluorescein-guided biopsies has recently been discussed to improve and expedite operative techniques in the detection of tumor-positive tissue, as well as to avoid making sampling errors. In this study, we aimed to report our experience with fluorescein-guided biopsies and elucidate distribution patterns in different histopathological diagnoses in order to develop strategies to increase the efficiency and accuracy of this technique. We report on 45 fluorescence-guided stereotactic biopsies in 44 patients (15 female, 29 male) at our institution from March 2016 to March 2021, including 25 frame-based stereotactic biopsies and 20 frameless image-guided biopsies using VarioGuide.

A Platform of Patient-Derived Microtumors Identifies Individual Treatment Responses and Therapeutic Vulnerabilities in Ovarian Cancer.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 12;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 12.

NMI Natural and Medical Sciences Institute, The University of Tuebingen, 72770 Reutlingen, Germany.

In light of the frequent development of therapeutic resistance in cancer treatment, there is a strong need for personalized model systems representing patient tumor heterogeneity, while enabling parallel drug testing and identification of appropriate treatment responses in individual patients. Using ovarian cancer as a prime example of a heterogeneous tumor disease, we developed a 3D preclinical tumor model comprised of patient-derived microtumors (PDM) and autologous tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) to identify individual treatment vulnerabilities and validate chemo-, immuno- and targeted therapy efficacies. Enzymatic digestion of primary ovarian cancer tissue and cultivation in defined serum-free media allowed rapid and efficient recovery of PDM, while preserving histopathological features of corresponding patient tumor tissue.

Nanoparticle-assisted, image-guided laser interstitial thermal therapy for cancer treatment.

Wiley Interdiscip Rev Nanomed Nanobiotechnol 2022 Jun 23:e1826. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Fischell Department of Bioengineering, University of Maryland at College Park, College Park, Maryland, USA.

Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a new treatment option for patients with brain and non-central nervous system (non-CNS) tumors. MRI guidance allows for precise placement of optical fiber in the tumor, while MR thermometry provides real-time monitoring and assessment of thermal doses during the procedure. Despite promising clinical results, LITT complications relating to brain tumor procedures, such as hemorrhage, edema, seizures, and thermal injury to nearby healthy tissues, remain a significant concern.

Single-stage cranioplasty with customized polyetheretherketone implant after tumor resection using virtual reality and augmented reality for precise implant customization and placement: illustrative case.

J Neurosurg Case Lessons 2022 May 23;3(21):CASE2255. Epub 2022 May 23.

Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Allentown, Pennsylvania; and.

Background: Cranioplasties are routinely performed to restore cosmesis and to protect intracranial contents after trauma, resection of tumors, or other pathologies. Traditionally done as a second-stage procedure, new single-stage cranioplasty protocols have been developed to minimize recovery periods, decrease complications, and improve patient satisfaction. These protocols, however, still require the use of larger than planned implants or use larger than ideal incisions to accommodate three-dimensional (3D) templates, which may not be optimal in regions with complex bony anatomy.

Corrective osteotomy for complex tibial deformity in a patient with hereditary vitamin D-resistant hypophosphatemic rickets (HVDRR) using CT-based navigation system and 3D printed osteotomy model.

Comput Assist Surg (Abingdon) 2022 Dec;27(1):84-90

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Yokohama City University, Yokohama, Japan.

Planning a three-dimensional (3D) osteotomy using computed tomography (CT) data is useful especially in cases with complex deformities. Furthermore, CT-based navigation system allows the preoperative virtual planning to be replicated in actual surgery. However, one disadvantage when using navigation systems is that when osteotomies are performed on tracker-attached bone, the bone fragments on the side that were cut away cannot be tracked.

J Vis Exp 2022 Jun 3(184). Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Women's Health Integrated Research Center, Gynecologic Cancer Center of Excellence, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Uniformed Services University and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center; The John P. Murtha Cancer Center Research Program, Department of Surgery, Uniformed Services University; Women's Health Integrated Research Center, Inova Women's Service Line, Inova Health System;

The tumor microenvironment (TME) represents a complex ecosystem comprised of dozens of distinct cell types, including tumor, stroma, and immune cell populations. To characterize proteome-level variation and tumor heterogeneity at scale, high-throughput methods are needed to selectively isolate discrete cellular populations in solid tumor malignancies. This protocol describes a high-throughput workflow, enabled by artificial intelligence (AI), that segments images of hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained, thin tissue sections into pathology-confirmed regions of interest for selective harvest of histology-resolved cell populations using laser microdissection (LMD).
