[Pathology of the nipple-areola complex : Part II. Tumors, tumor-like lesions, and supernumerary breast lesions].

Pathologe 2020 May 26. Epub 2020 May 26.

Pathologisches Institut, Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 224, 69120, Heidelberg, Deutschland.

The nipple-areola complex is the origin of various morphologically distinct tumors and tumor-like lesions, which can be delineated from the special structures of the nipple, in particular the intramammary ducts, skin-appendages, and the intramammary stroma. Benign tumors are most frequent and this includes epithelial tumors such as mammary adenoma and syringomatous tumor of the nipple. Less commonly observed are benign mesenchymal tumors such as leiomyoma of the nipple, or tumor-like lesions like pseudo-lymphoma. Read More

Modelling fibroid pathology: development and manipulation of a myometrial smooth muscle cell macromolecular crowding model to alter extracellular matrix deposition.

Mol Hum Reprod 2020 May 25. Epub 2020 May 25.

Hudson Institute of Medical Research, 27-31 Wright Street, Clayton, VIC.

Current treatment options for uterine fibroids are limited to hormonal manipulation or surgical intervention. We aimed to develop an in-vitro model to mirror collagen deposition and extracellular matrix (ECM) formation, the principal features of uterine fibroids, to enable testing of novel therapeutics. Macromolecular crowding with Ficoll 400 and Ficoll 70 in cultures of human uterine myometrial smooth muscle cells containing ascorbic acid, provided the basis for this model. Read More

Clinical course of suspected small gastrointestinal stromal tumors in the stomach.

World J Gastrointest Surg 2020 Apr;12(4):171-177

Department of Gastroenterology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610041, Sichuan Province, China.

Background: Gastric subepithelial lesions are frequently encountered during endoscopic examinations, and the majority of them are small and asymptomatic. Among these lesions, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the major concern for patients and clinicians owing to their malignant potentials. Although previous guidelines suggested periodic surveillance for such small (≤ 20 mm) lesions, several patients and clinicians have still requested or prescribed repeated examinations or radical resection, posing extra medical burdens and risks.

Specifically, these alterations impact the normal dynamic state of responsiveness to mechanical cues in the extracellular environment. These mechanical cues are converted via integrins, cell membrane receptors, to biochemical signals including cytoskeletal signaling pathways to maintain mechanical homeostasis. Read More

Role of Hormones in Common Benign Uterine Lesions: Endometrial Polyps, Leiomyomas, and Adenomyosis.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2020 ;1242:37-58

Department of Pathology and Molecular Pathology, Centre Jean Perrin, Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Leiomyoma, adenomyosis, and endometrial polyps are benign uterine disorders which seem to develop in the context of hormonal imbalances, due to steroid hormones, estrogen and progesterone, in association with various factors ranging from genetic factors to modifiable lifestyle factors. A growing body of evidence suggests that those hormones and their receptors are key modulators in the genesis and the growth of those pathologic entities. Further studies are required to understand their involvement in the pathogenesis of those lesions and their link to other factors such as extracellular matrix components, growth factors, chemokines, cytokines, and tissue repair mechanisms.

Abdominal Myomectomy for Huge Uterine Myomas with Intra-arterial Balloon Occlusion: Approach to Reduce Blood Loss.

Surg J (N Y) 2020 May 5;6(Suppl 1):S11-S21. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Juntendo University, Tokyo, Japan.

Abdominal myomectomy for a huge myomas, especially uterine cervical myoma, is difficult because of risks, such as intraoperative bleeding or injury to adjacent organs. Therefore, understanding of the positional relationships among a huge myoma, especially cervical or intraligamental myoma, and the vascular plexuses in the right and left cardinal ligaments is important for prevention of massive bleeding during myomectomy. While sufficiently performing preoperative assessment with pelvic examination, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), etc. Read More

Thoracoscopic surgery combined with endoscopic creation of a submucosal tunnel for a large complicated esophageal leiomyoma.

Surg Case Rep 2020 May 6;6(1):92. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of Surgery and Oncology, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, 3-1-1 Maidashi, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka, 812-8582, Japan.

Background: The standard surgical method for symptomatic submucosal tumors (SMTs) or tumors with unclear biological behavior is enucleation. Minimally invasive approaches are usually considered appropriate for surgical enucleation; thus, thoracoscopic and laparoscopic enucleation is performed widely and safely. However, it is sometimes difficult to enucleate large and complicated esophageal tumors using thoracoscopic surgery, and even if rare, there is the risk of requiring thoracotomy or esophagectomy.

In-bag manual versus uncontained power morcellation for laparoscopic myomectomy.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2020 May 6;5:CD013352. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive Science and Dentistry, School of Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.

Background: Uterine leiomyomas, also referred to as myomas or fibroids, are benign tumours arising from the smooth muscle cells of the myometrium. They are the most common pelvic tumour in women. The estimated rate of leiomyosarcoma, found during surgery for presumed benign leiomyomas, is about 0. Read More

Intravenous leiomyomatosis is inclined to a solid entity different from uterine leiomyoma based on RNA-seq analysis with RT-qPCR validation.

Cancer Med 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

Molecular Pathology Research Center, Department of Pathology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Introduction: Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) is currently regarded as a special variant of the common uterine leiomyoma (LM). Though IVL shows a similar histological morphology to LM, IVL is characterized by unique intravenous growth patterns and low-grade malignant potential, which are quite different from LM. There are currently few studies underlying the molecular alterations of IVL, though this information is important for understanding the pathogenesis of the disease, and for identifying potential biomarkers.

Wayne State University School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Detroit, MI 48201, USA.

Background: Leiomyomas are usually easily identifiable on routine imaging. However, there is increasing difficulty with diagnosing leiomyomas following degeneration. Subserosal leiomyomas that undergo cystic degeneration can imitate ovarian pathology. Read More
