Organ Preservation Protocols in T4 Laryngeal Cancer: a Review of the Literature.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2019 Mar 1;10(1):149-155. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

1Department of Head and Neck Oncology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kochi, India.

Population-based studies indicate that chemoradiation has become the most popular treatment for advanced laryngeal cancers; however, by extrapolating trial results to the general population, several issues have emerged, such as reduced overall survival, non-functional laryngeal preservation, and poor response to treatment. Although included in these trials, T4 laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers with cartilage invasion formed a small percentage of these patients and questions over whether they were appropriately staged remain unanswered. Literature on the use of chemoradiation in this set of patients, including the challenges, treatment considerations, and factors predicting response to treatment and outcomes, was reviewed.

3Department of General Surgery, Ege University Faculty of Medicine, Balcova, Izmir Turkey.

Lymph node involvement in pancreatic adenocancer is one of the strongest predictors of prognosis. However, the extent of lymph node dissection is still a matter of debate and number of dissected nodes varies widely among patients. In order to homogenize this diverse group of patients and more accurately predict their prognosis, we aimed to analyze the effect of metastatic lymph node ratio as an independent prognostic factor.

Center for Gastrointestinal Malignancies, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, 106 Irving St., NW, Suite 3900, Washington, DC 20010 USA.

Peritoneal metastases may occur from a majority of cancers that occur within the abdomen or pelvis. When cancer spread to the peritoneal surfaces is documented, a decision regarding palliation versus an aggressive approach using cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) must be made. This decision is dependent on a well-defined group of prognostic indicators. Read More

Pelvic Exenteration with Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (CRS + HIPEC) for Rectal Cancer-Case Series with Review of Literature.

Indian J Surg Oncol 2019 Feb 23;10(Suppl 1):80-83. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

1Colorectal Services, Department of Surgical oncology, Tata Memorial Hospital, Ernest Borges Marg, Parel, Mumbai, 400 012 India.

Incidence of synchronous peritoneal metastases (PM) in colorectal cancer is approximately 5%, with another 5% of the patients develop metachronous PM. Colorectal PM has been hypothesized to be a loco-regional disease rather than a systemic spread, and cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has been considered as a viable treatment option. Pelvic exenteration is an established treatment option for locally advanced rectal cancer, but it is associated with significant morbidity. Read More
