Can homogeneous, lipomatous tumors be primarily resected without biopsy? A retrospective analysis of 240 tumors.

World J Surg Oncol 2022 Jun 8;20(1):184. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Department of Trauma and Orthopedic Surgery, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

Background: According to guidelines, every soft tissue tumor (STT) larger than 3 cm should be biopsied before definitive resection. Advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) improve the possibility to give a provisional diagnosis of the tumor's entity. Can lipomas and atypical lipomatous tumors (ALTs) of the extremities therefore be primarily marginally resected based on interpretation of MR images without a previous biopsy?. Read More

Artificial intelligence significantly improves the diagnostic accuracy of deep myxoid soft tissue lesions in histology.

Sci Rep 2022 04 28;12(1):6965. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Pathology, CUHK Medical Centre, 9 Chak Cheung Street, Shatin, New Territories, HKSAR, Hong Kong.

Deep myxoid soft tissue lesions have posed a diagnostic challenge for pathologists due to significant histological overlap and regional heterogeneity, especially when dealing with small biopsies which have profoundly low accuracy. However, accurate diagnosis is important owing to difference in biological behaviors and response to adjuvant therapy, that will guide the extent of surgery and the need for neo-adjuvant therapy. Herein, we trained two convolutional neural network models based on a total of 149,130 images representing diagnoses of extra skeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma, intramuscular myxoma, low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, myxofibrosarcoma and myxoid liposarcoma.

Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma: An Unusual Presentation of a Rare Cancer.

J Adv Pract Oncol 2021 Nov 1;12(8):854-862. Epub 2021 Nov 1.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America Phoenix, Goodyear, Arizona.

Retroperitoneal liposarcomas (RLPS) are rare tumors that have variable clinical behavior and complex treatment strategies based on presentation, histopathology, and genomics. Early identification is critical, and complete surgical resection remains the primary treatment, although chemotherapy and radiation are used on individual bases. Presenting symptoms are often nonspecific; therefore, a high degree of suspicion is essential for early diagnosis. Read More
