Outpatient acupuncture effects on patient self-reported symptoms in oncology care: a retrospective analysis.

J Cancer 2018 8;9(19):3613-3619. Epub 2018 Sep 8.

Department of Palliative, Rehabilitation, and Integrative Medicine, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Increased access to complementary therapies such as acupuncture at academic medical centers has created new opportunities for management of cancer and cancer treatment related symptoms. Patients presenting for acupuncture treatment during calendar year 2016 at an outpatient integrative medicine clinic in a comprehensive cancer center were asked to complete a modified Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale (ESAS; 16 symptoms, score 0-10, 10 worst possible) before and after each visit. ESAS subscales analyzed included global (GDS; score 0-90), physical (PHS, 0-60) and psychological distress (PSS, 0-20). Read More

Prevalence of and risk factors for presenting initial respiratory symptoms in patients undergoing surgery for lung cancer.

J Cancer 2018 31;9(19):3515-3521. Epub 2018 Aug 31.

Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

Patients with early stage lung cancer seldom present initial respiratory symptoms, causing a delayed diagnosis and missed opportunity to receive operation. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of initial respiratory symptoms and identity what factors would predispose lung cancer patients to present initial respiratory symptoms in patients undergoing lung cancer surgery. A retrospective chart review was conducted on 3,203 patients undergoing surgery for primary lung cancer. Read More

Monitoring changes in quality of life in patients with lung cancer under treatment with chemotherapy and co administration of zoledronic acid by using specialized questionnaires.

J Cancer 2018 19;9(10):1731-1736. Epub 2018 Apr 19.

3rd Department of Surgery, "AHEPA" University Hospital, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Medical School, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Due to the severity of the primary disease in patients with lung cancer, quality of life (QoL) is often overlooked. Factors that form QoL should be taken in consideration when planning the appropriate treatment and determining therapy targets, because of the increasing frequency of bone metastasis leading to high levels of pain. Purpose of this study is to assess quality of life in patients with lung cancer, before and after treatment combined with zoledronic acid. Read More

Short-term effectiveness of inpatient cancer rehabilitation: A longitudinal controlled cohort study.

J Cancer 2017 1;8(10):1717-1725. Epub 2017 Jul 1.

Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Switzerland.

Inpatient rehabilitation for cancer patients has been demonstrated to improve patients' health related quality of life (HRQoL) effectively. The purpose of this study was to compare changes in general health and HRQoL of cancer patients who were referred to inpatient rehabilitation (IR) with those in two control groups who underwent outpatient management either with advice for inpatient rehabilitation (A) or without (A). In this naturalistic, longitudinal, controlled cohort study, changes in general health and HRQoL were assessed at either discharge of acute hospital or start of rehabilitation (baseline) and at the follow-up 3 weeks later or end of rehabilitation.

Impact Of Circulating T Helper 1 And 17 Cells in the Blood on Regional Lymph Node Invasion in Colorectal Cancer.

J Cancer 2017 10;8(7):1249-1254. Epub 2017 May 10.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain medicine, Konkuk University Medical Center, Konkuk University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

We hypothesised that the blood levels of immune cells would be related to the progression of colorectal cancer and regional lymph node metastasis. We investigated the association between the blood levels of immune cells and regional lymph node metastasis in colorectal cancer patients. Patients with American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) stages 1 and 2 colorectal cancer were assigned to Early stage group and those with AJCC stages 3 and 4 were assigned to Late stage group.

Center of General Surgery, the People's Liberation Army General Hospital of Chengdu Command, Chengdu 610083, Sichuan Province, China.

Three-step hand-assisted laparoscopic D2 radical gastrectomy (HALG) is a modified surgical procedure that has achieved satisfactory results for obese patients in our surgical center. To fully elucidate the advantages of this procedure, in this study, comprehensive and in-depth comparative analyses were performed to assess clinical data from obese gastric cancer patients who underwent HALG, laparoscopic-assisted D2 radical gastrectomy (LAG), and open D2 radical gastrectomy (OG) in our surgical center during a specific time period. For the 3 groups, incision length was 1. Read More

A comparison of minimally invasive video-assisted parathyroidectomy and traditional parathyroidectomy for parathyroid adenoma.

J Cancer 2013 3;4(6):458-63. Epub 2013 Jul 3.

1. Department of Surgery -University Hospital of Parma;

Background: Pre-operative imaging techniques for sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism (SPHPT) and intraoperative parathyroid hormone (ioPTH) have led to the wide spread use of minimally invasive surgical approaches.

Study Design: In our prospectively collected database, 157 subjects with SPHPT and a preoperative diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma were treated with parathyroidectomy between January 2003 and November 2011. Subjects in group A were enrolled between January 2003 to September 2006, and underwent traditional parathyroidectomy with intraoperative frozen section and bilateral neck exploration. Read More

Medullary Thyroid Cancer: It is a pain in the neck?

J Cancer 2011 Apr 8;2:200-5. Epub 2011 Apr 8.

1. Department of Surgery, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA;

Background: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) commonly presents with lymph node (LN) metastases, and has a worse prognosis than papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). Tumor size and LN involvement have been shown to affect stage of disease; however, to our knowledge, ours is the first study that attempts to correlate anterior neck pain on presentation with the extent of disease.

Methods: We performed a retrospective review of patients with MTC who underwent an operation from February 1998 through December 2008. Read More
