Comparison of Survival in Patients with Isolated Peritoneal Carcinomatosis from Colorectal Cancer Treated with Cytoreduction and Melphalan or Mitomycin-C as Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy Agent.

Int J Surg Oncol 2018 13;2018:1920276. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Surgical Oncology Department, Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland, 21202, USA.

Background: The role of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) from colorectal cancer (CRC) is debated. Melphalan as a perfusion agent has also demonstrated survival benefit in other recurrent and chemoresistant malignancies. Thus, we hypothesize that melphalan as a HIPEC agent may improve overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with PC from CRC. Read More

Invasive Infection after Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Surgery for Gastric Cancer.

Int J Surg Oncol 2017 6;2017:6058567. Epub 2017 Nov 6.

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, General Intensive Care Unit, Soroka Medical Center, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel.

Upper gastrointestinal tract (GIT) surgical procedures are more likely to cause nosocomial than lower GIT procedures and they thus constitute an independent risk factor for mortality. Because of the severity of postsurgical fungal infections complications, intensivists and surgeons need to be extremely aware of their clinical importance in critically ill postsurgical intensive care unit (ICU) patients. We analyzed the clinical and microbiological data of 149 oncologic patients who were hospitalized in the ICU at Soroka Medical Center between January 2010 and January 2015 after undergoing upper GIT surgery for gastric cancer.

Management Options for Advanced Low or Intermediate Grade Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Review of Recent Literature.

Int J Surg Oncol 2017 16;2017:6424812. Epub 2017 May 16.

Endocrine Oncology Branch, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Our understanding of the biology, genetics, and natural history of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas has improved considerably in the last several decades and the spectrum of available therapeutic options is rapidly expanding. The management of patients with metastatic low or intermediate grade NETs has been revolutionized by the development of new treatment strategies such as molecular targeting therapies with everolimus and sunitinib, somatostatin analogs, tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitors, and peptide receptor radionuclide therapy that can be used alone or as a multimodal approach with or without surgery. To further define and clarify the utility, appropriateness, and the sequence of the growing list of available therapies for this patient population will require more high level evidence; however, data from well-designed randomized phase III clinical trials is rapidly accumulating that will further stimulate development of new management strategies.

Now, later of never: multicenter randomized controlled trial call--is surgery necessary after atypical breast core biopsy results in mammographic screening settings?

Authors:
Nikita Makretsov

Int J Surg Oncol 2015 21;2015:192579. Epub 2015 Apr 21.

The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada V62 1Y6.

Breast cancer mammographic screening leads to detection of premalignant and preinvasive lesions with an increasing frequency. Nevertheless, current epidemiologic evidence indicates that the screening reduces breast cancer specific mortality, but not overall mortality in breast cancer patients. The evidence is lacking whether aggressive eradication of DCIS (preinvasive form of breast carcinoma) by surgery and radiation is of survival benefit, as long-term breast cancer specific mortality in a cohort of patients with DCIS is already in a single digit percent range.

Minimising unnecessary mastectomies in a predominantly Chinese community.

Int J Surg Oncol 2015 26;2015:684021. Epub 2015 Jan 26.

Medical Education, Mount Elizabeth Hospital, 3 Mount Elizabeth No. 17-16, Singapore 228510.

Background: Recent data shows that the use of breast conservation treatment (BCT) for breast cancer may result in superior outcomes when compared with mastectomy. However, reported rates of BCT in predominantly Chinese populations are significantly lower than those reported in Western countries. Low BCT rates may now be a concern as they may translate into suboptimal outcomes. Read More

Close margins in oral cancers: implication of close margin status in recurrence and survival of pT1N0 and pT2N0 oral cancers.

Int J Surg Oncol 2014 11;2014:545372. Epub 2014 Nov 11.

Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh 500034, India.

Introduction: Among all prognostic factors, "margin status" is the only factor under clinician's control. Current guidelines describe histopathologic margin of >5 mm as "clear margin" and 1-5 mm as "close margin." Ambiguous description of positive margin in the published data resulted in comparison of microscopically "involved margin" and "close margin" together with "clear margin" in many publications.

General Surgery Department, Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital, 42121 Bergamo, Italy.

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in the world; 53-60% of patients show disease progression and die of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). PC of gastric origin has an extremely inauspicious prognosis with a median survival estimate at 1-3 months. Different studies presented contrasting data about survival rates; however, all agreed with the necessity of a complete cytoreduction to improve survival. Read More
