A Case of Primary Intra-abdominal Synovial Sarcoma.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 22;9(4):636-639. Epub 2018 May 22.

2Department of General and Gastrointestinal Surgery, Medical Trust Hospital, M.G. Road, Kochi, Kerala 682016 India.

Synovial sarcomas are relatively common intermediate-to-high-grade malignant soft tissue tumors, often with an initial indolent course. And among the sarcomas primary intra-abdominal synovial sarcoma is a relatively rare entity that may present with an abdominal mass and diagnosis is usually confirmed by immunohistochemistry. The authors report a case of a 46-year-old man who presented with a large palpable abdominal mass. Read More

1Surgical Oncology, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, Rohini, New Delhi, India.

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) refers to spindle cell sarcomas arising from or separating in the direction of cells of peripheral nerve sheath. The MPNST of the parotid gland is an extremely rare tumor, accounts for < 5% of all soft tissue sarcomas, and carries a poor prognosis. In this article, we report a case of MPNST of parotid gland in a 45-year-old male and review its diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Read More

Vasoformative Lesions in Mediastinal Mixed Germ Cell Tumors: an Interesting Account of Two Cases Spanning the Benign to Malignant Spectrum.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 18;9(4):624-628. Epub 2018 May 18.

1Department of Histopathology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Rajender Nagar, New Delhi, India.

Extragonadal germ cell tumors are most commonly encountered in the anterior mediastinum. The presence of sarcomatous malignancies in these tumors is a rare phenomenon that adversely impacts patient prognosis because of poor response to conventional cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Even more unusual is the presence of florid benign somatic proliferations that overshadow the germ cell component, often resulting in misdiagnosis and inappropriate management. Read More

Completion Total Laryngectomy Ten Years After Near Total Laryngectomy for Radiorecurrent Cancer of the Glottis.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 9;9(4):605-608. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

Division of Surgical Oncology (Head and Neck Services), Regional Cancer Centre, Trivandrum, Kerala 695011 India.

Near total laryngectomy (NTL) is a safe alternative to total laryngectomy in salvaging lateralized radiation failures. A 65-year-old gentleman with radiorecurrent T1 vocal cord cancer was salvaged successfully by NTL. Ten years later, he presented with a strained shunt speech which was treated judiciously, with the aid of a positron emission tomography (PET) scan, by a (completion) total laryngectomy (TL), bilateral selective neck dissection, and pharyngeal resurfacing with pectoralis major myocutaneous (PMMC) flap.

Involvement of the bladder by colorectal cancer is sufficiently rare to be encountered by an individual surgeon on an infrequent basis. Extirpative procedures for advanced colorectal cancers can involve partial/total bladder resections. In patients without evidence of distant metastatic disease, a reasonable therapeutic effect can be expected when negative surgical margins are obtained. Read More

Gallbladder cancer (CaGB) in the subcontinent belongs to low socioeconomic status, and at the time of diagnosis, a large number is unresectable or inoperable so the palliative treatment remains the only option. In the present study, attempt was made to see the effect and safety profile of single-agent oral capecitabine in inoperable CaGB in presence of low levels of jaundice post-single-catheter transhepatic external biliary drainage. In  = 35 of inoperable jaundiced CaGB, post-biliary drainage capecitabine in low dose was started when their total bilirubin levels fell to 10 mg% or below. Read More

Utility of Preoperative Staging of Ipsilateral Axilla with Ultrasound and Guided Needle Aspiration in Early-Stage Breast Cancer-Current Indian Scenario.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 26;9(4):505-510. Epub 2018 Jul 26.

2Department of Radiodiagnosis, Cancer Institute (WIA), Chennai, India.

Clinical assessment of the axilla, especially in early-stage breast cancer, can have a high degree of inaccuracy with over-staging curtailing the use of sentinel node biopsy. Imaging of axilla, using ultrasound ± guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) can help in better staging. In this study, we aim to compare physical examination and ultrasound of axilla and FNAC and assess their accuracy in preoperative staging of axilla. Read More

Clinical Utility of Staging Laparoscopy for Advanced Obstructing Rectal Adenocarcinoma: Emerging Tool.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Dec 2;9(4):488-494. Epub 2018 Aug 2.

1Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery and Colorectal Surgical Oncology, Tata Memorial Hospital, Dr Ernest Borges Marg, Parel, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400012 India.

The multimodal treatment for advanced rectal adenocarcinoma mandates accurate preoperative staging with contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis. Unlike gastric cancer, the role of staging laparoscopy (SL) in advanced colorectal cancer has not been evaluated. This study aims to evaluate the clinical value of SL in treatment decision-making for advanced rectal cancer (RC) with near or complete obstructing tumors. Read More

3Department of Surgical Oncology, Tata Memorial Center, Mumbai, India.

Close surveillance of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients is helpful as early detection of resectable metastasis has a survival benefit. Ultrasonography (USG) is a frequently used modality to detect liver recurrence, although international guidelines do not include it. To evaluate the potential added role of USG in early detection of CRC recurrence. Read More

Current Status of Lymphadenectomy During Radical Nephroureterectomy for Upper Tract Urothelial Cancer-Yes, No or Maybe?

Indian J Surg Oncol 2018 Sep 13;9(3):418-426. Epub 2018 Aug 13.

Section of Urologic Oncology, Department of Surgical Oncology, Max Institute of Cancer Care, New Delhi, India.

While pelvic lymphadenectomy during radical cystectomy for bladder cancer is a well-established standard of care, the same does not hold true for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). Indeed, a template-based lymphadenectomy is rarely, if ever, performed in conjunction with radical nephroureterectomy at most centres across the globe. While multiple studies have explored the staging and therapeutic role of lymphadenectomy in cases of UTUC, there remain large gaps in our understanding of the indications, extent and safety of this procedure as an adjunct to nephroureterectomy.
