Metastatic Liver Tumors in Surgical Pathology: Impact of Contemporary Diagnostic and Therapeutic Paradigms in a Tertiary Care Center.

Int J Surg Pathol 2021 Jun 14:10668969211022708. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

12250Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

We analyzed metastatic liver tumors received in the department of pathology in a tertiary care center over a 3-year period. There were 509 metastatic liver tumors; counterintuitively, there were as many resections (235 cases) as biopsies (274 cases). This unexpected finding reflects contemporaneous organ-specific paradigms for diagnosis and management of metastatic liver disease in oncologic practice, and the association of our practice with a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center with expertise and specialization in liver surgery.

National Utilization of Imatinib in the Management of Resected Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors.

Ann Surg Oncol 2021 May 27. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Surgical Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Background: Imatinib decreases recurrence risk and improves overall survival (OS) in localized gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs); however, the extent to which patients receive appropriate treatment in the US has not been well characterized.

Methods: Patients with non-metastatic, resectable GIST were included in this study (National Cancer Database, 2010-2015). Those with a low-risk of recurrence were classified as receiving overtreatment or guideline-concordant treatment, while those with a high-risk of recurrence were classified as receiving undertreatment or guideline-concordant treatment.

Single-Incision Laparoscopic Intragastric Surgery for Gastric Submucosal Tumors Located Near the Esophagogastric Junction.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2021 May 27. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, the Li Huili Affiliated Hospital, Ningbo University, Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China.

Laparoscopic local resection of the stomach for gastric submucosal tumors (SMTs) is widely accepted by surgeons. For SMTs located near the esophagogastric junction (EGJ), simple laparoscopic wedge resection is rarely performed owing to concerns of causing cardia deformities or stenosis. Single-incision laparoscopic intragastric surgery (sLIGS) has been used to treat SMTs located near the EGJ in carefully selected cases. Read More

Department of Radiology, Shaoxing People's Hospital, Shaoxing Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Shaoxing, China.

Background: We conduct a study in developing and validating four MRI-based radiomics models to preoperatively predict the risk classification of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs).

Methods: Forty-one patients (low-risk = 17, intermediate-risk = 13, high-risk = 11) underwent MRI before surgery between September 2013 and March 2019 in this retrospective study. The Kruskal-Wallis test with Bonferonni correction and variance threshold was used to select appropriate features, and the Random Forest model (three classification model) was used to select features among the high-risk, intermediate-risk, and low-risk of GISTs.

Proteasome Inhibition Suppresses KIT-Independent Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors Via Targeting Hippo/YAP/Cyclin D1 Signaling.

Front Pharmacol 2021 6;12:686874. Epub 2021 May 6.

Zhejiang Provincial Key Laboratory of Silkworm Bioreactor and Biomedicine, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, Zhejiang Sci-Tech University, Hangzhou, China.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common malignant tumor of mesenchymal origin of the digestive tract. A yet more challenging resistance mechanism involves transition from oncogenic KIT to a new imatinib-insensitive oncogenic driver, heralded by loss of KIT expression. Our recent studies have shown that inhibition of cyclin D1 and Hippo signaling, which are overexpressed in KIT-independent GIST, is accompanied by anti-proliferative and apoptosis-promoting effects.
