  • [Title] Salvage brachytherapy for local recurrences of prostate cancer treated previously with radiotherapy.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: In MCS Memorial Institute of Oncology in Gliwice a research programme on salvage HDR brachytherapy for local recurrences of prostate cancer treated previously with EBRT has been ongoing since February 2008.
  • The most common early complications were: macroscopic haematuria, pain in lower part of the abdomen, and transient dysuria.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Salvage brachytherapy for localized prostate cancer (3 × 10 Gy every 14 days) seems to be a safe and well tolerated procedure.
  • A significant decline in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level is seen in patients with hormone-responsive cancer.

  • [Title] [Laparascopic cholecystectomy on a previously operated abdomen].
  • [Transliterated title] Les choléystectomies sous coelioscopie sur abdomen cicatriciel.
  • Laparoscopy is still contra-indicated in the presence of abdominal scars due to the frequent post-operative adhesions which make access to the peritoneal cavity difficult.
  • AIM: This study aimed to assess outcomes of laparoscopic cholecystectomy on a scarred abdomen.
  • METHODS: We have carried out a retrospective study on a number of consecutive patients operated between the first januar 2000 and 31 december 2006, who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy with previous abdominal surgery (one or several) during this period, laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed on 2281 patients, including 233 patients who had at least one abdominal scar (10%).
  • Then we have compared two groups of patients, those with an upper abdominal surgery: group 1 (G1) and those with lower abdominal surgery: group 2 (G2).
  • RESULTS: The groups consist of 200 women and 33 men aged on average 13.8 +/- 49.6 years.
  • CONCLUSION: Previous abdominal operations, are not a contraindication to safe laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
  • However, previous upper abdominal surgery is associated with a higher rate of adhesions, an increased risk of operative complications, a greater conversion rate, a prolonged operating time and longer stay.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Motion correction methods in CBCT have focused on the thorax because of its higher soft tissue contrast, whereas low-contrast tissue in abdomen remains a challenge.
  • The authors report on a method to correct respiration-induced motion artifacts in 1 min CBCT scans that is applicable in both thorax and abdomen, using a motion model adapted to the patient from a respiration-correlated image set.
  • In the thorax, the model is obtained from the same CBCT images that are to be motion-corrected, whereas in the abdomen, the model uses respiration-correlated CT (RCCT) images acquired prior to the treatment session.
  • The approximately 600 projection images are sorted into six (in thorax) or ten (in abdomen) subsets and reconstructed to obtain a set of low-quality respiration-correlated RC-CBCT images.
  • Repeated application of the model with different reference images produces a series of motion-corrected CBCT images over the respiration cycle, for determining the motion extent of the tumor and nearby organs at risk.
  • RESULTS: Evaluation in lung phantom, two patient cases in thorax and two in upper abdomen, shows that blurring and streaking artifacts are visibly reduced with motion correction.
  • Repeat application of the method in one thorax case, with reference images chosen at end expiration and end inspiration, indicates its feasibility for observing tumor motion extent.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Motion correction of CBCT is feasible and yields observable improvement in the thorax and abdomen.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Four-dimensional computed tomography (4DCT) has enhanced images of the thorax and upper abdomen during respiration, but intraphase residual motion artifacts will persist in cine-mode scanning.
  • It was determined that these motion artifacts depend on patient-specific tumor motion and CT gantry rotation speed.

11. Oetting P, Rau B, Schlag PM: [Abdominal vacuum device with open abdomen]. Chirurg; 2006 Jul;77(7):586, 588-93

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Abdominal vacuum device with open abdomen].
  • [Transliterated title] Abdomineller Vakuumsaugverband beim offenen Abdomen.
  • BACKGROUND: For the treatment of peritonitis or abdominal compartment syndrome, an open abdomen can be required.
  • Abdominal vacuum-assisted closure is increasingly favoured.
  • We analyse our experience with this device in a distinct group of patients from gastrointestinal cancer surgery.
  • PATIENTS AND METHOD: From June 2003 to December 2005, 36 patients were treated with 151 double-layer abdominal vacuum devices.
  • Indications for applying this device were peritonitis (n = 22), abdominal compartment syndrome (n = 11), and necrotising fasciitis (n = 3).
  • With it, four enteric fistulas (11%) and four abdominal wall bleedings (11%) occurred.
  • In our patient group, no new intra-abdominal abscesses were observed.
  • CONCLUSION: Compared with other methods of temporary abdominal closure, our experience with the vacuum-assisted device demonstrates its advantages concerning clinical feasibility and the relatively low complication rate.
  • The high rate of direct fascial closure with an acceptable rate of ventral hernias following vacuum-assisted abdominal closure are further benefits of this technique.

  • Abdominal pain is a challenging complaint for both primary care and specialist physicians because it is frequently a benign complaint, but it can also be caused by serious pathology (acute abdomen) implying surgery.
  • The overall sensitivity and specificity of the history and physical examination in diagnosing the different causes of abdominal pain is poor, which is especially true for benign conditions.
  • In contrast, the value of ultrasound in patients with acute abdomen is of utmost importance.

  • [Title] Whole-body MRI evaluation of tumor burden in the neurofibromatosis tumor suppressor syndromes.
  • A rapid and sensitive method to detect internal tumors is highly desirable since they can cause neurologic dysfunction, compress vital structures, or transform into malignant tumors.
  • The number and type of tumors (discrete vs. plexiform) were identified by a board-certified radiologist and tumor volume was calculated using semi-automated analysis.
  • Sixty-one percent of subjects had ≥1 internal tumor.
  • Overall, the legs harbored the greatest number of tumors (33%), followed by the pelvis (18%), thorax (15%), abdomen (12%), arms (10%), and head/neck (7%).
  • Only 40% of internal tumors were classified as plexiform yet these tumors contributed 78% of the tumor burden by volume.
  • In addition, WBMRI may prove useful in identifying individual patients at high risk for complications (such as neurologic dysfunction or malignant transformation) due to heavy internal tumor burden and in determining the efficacy of antitumor drugs in this unique patient population.

  • [Title] Prevalence of CDH1 germline mutations in subjects with early onset or familial lobular breast cancer, a multicenter collaboration.
  • : 11042 Background: Invasive lobular breast carcinoma (LBC) is part of the hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) syndrome, associated with germline mutations in the E-cadherin (CDH1) gene.
  • In this study, we estimated the prevalence of germline CDH1mutations among women with LBC who were either diagnosed at young age or had family history of breast cancer (BC).
  • METHODS: Germline DNA was collected from 383 women with LBC or mixed, lobular/ductal, BC from breast cancer programs, familial cancer clinics, and population-based cohorts.
  • No gastric cancers were reported in these families.
  • Given the difficulty of identifying CDH1 mutations from BC history alone and the importance of managing the gastric cancer risk in CDH1carriers, these findings should underscore the need to obtain an accurate abdominal cancer family history from women with LBC.

  • The use of PET-CT rather than conventional imaging (CI) may better identify patients for CMT by enhanced tumor staging and improved definition of RT treatment volumes.
  • METHODS: Patients with stage III NSCLC (based on histology/cytology, brain CT/MRI, CT thorax, CT/US abdomen, and bone scan) who were considered candidates for CMT were randomized to either PET-CT or CT for RT treatment planning.
  • The primary outcome was the proportion of patients who did not receive CMT because their tumor was upstaged to Stage 4 or their intrathoracic tumor was too extensive for radical RT.

  • While VEGF expression was not related to the pattern of recurrence, high MVD was strongly associated with distant metastasis (abdomen, liver, lung, bone) compared with local recurrence (p < 0.001).

  • METHODS: Patients who received concurrent CRT to the abdomen between 2002 and 2008 were identified for this study to evaluate change in renal size (RS) and function following CRT.
  • RS was defined by craniocaudal measurement on CT images.
  • The primarily irradiated kidney (PK) was defined as the kidney that received the greater mean kidney dose.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Significant detriments in PK size and renal function were seen following abdominal CRT.

  • The open abdomen (OA) strategy is accepted in the treatment of extremely ill surgical patients.
  • Unfortunately, it continues to be associated with very high morbidity and mortality, and the different techniques used to protect the intra-abdominal contents cannot be standardized for all surgical circumstances.
  • The objective is to review the origins, actual indications and controversies of the staged abdominal repair (STAR) and to report on the latest and most used techniques to ensure an optimal temporary abdominal closure (TAC).
  • A search was done in Medline and Ovid for articles with key words of open abdomen, temporary abdominal closure and staged abdominal repair.
  • We found the use of the technique is justified in patients with trauma, abdominal compartment syndrome and patients with severe intra-abdominal sepsis.
  • In our own experience and as a general rule we discouraged the use of mesh to protect intra-abdominal contents.
  • The strategy of OA is useful in complex surgical situations in extremely ill patients.

  • [Transliterated title] Soporte nutricional en pacientes con abdomen abierto.
  • OBJECTIVE: We have designed a protocol to evaluate the tolerance, effectiveness and the nutritional support in post-surgical patients with an open abdomen.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We have made a prospective descriptive study of patients submitted to surgery and left with an open abdomen with a Bogoti bag, and have received nutritional support.
  • The patients who have stayed for less than 4 days with the open abdomen where excluded.
  • A group received total parenteral nutrition (TPN) with mixtures all in one; another group received enteral nutrition (EN) through a needle catheter jejunostomy (NCJ) and a third group received mixed nutritional support.
  • To evaluate the tolerance to EN, we have included those patients receiving this type of nutrition for at least 4 consecutive days without having diarrhea or pain.
  • RESULTS: 24 patients entered the study, 46% recived mixed nutritional support (Enteral and Parenteral), 33% exclusively TPN, and 31% exclusively EN.
  • About nutritional support, 66% of the patients did not present complications; 21% of those receiving TPN presented hyperglycemia; and 13% of those receiving EN presented diarrhea.
  • About EN effectiveness, 69% of the patients have reached 80% of the estimated caloric objective within days 4-5 from the beginning of formula administration.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The integral care of the patients with an open abdomen, added to a nutritional support regimen tailored to each patient's condition can help decreasing the hypermetabolic response, as well as moridity and mortality.

  • [Title] [The acute (surgical) abdomen - epidemiology, diagnosis and general principles of management].
  • [Transliterated title] Das akute (chirurgische) Abdomen - Epidemiologie, Diagnostik und allgemeine Prinzipien des Managements.
  • AIM: This review comments on epidemiology, diagnosis and general principles of surgical management in patients with acute abdomen.
  • DEFINITION AND EPIDEMIOLOGY: The most common cause of acute abdominal pain is non-specific abdominal pain (24 - 44.3 % of the study populations), followed by acute appendicitis (15.9 - 28.1 %), acute biliary disease (2.9 - 9.7 %) and bowel obstruction or diverticulitits in elderly patients.
  • Acute appendicitis represents the cause of surgical intervention in two-thirds of the children with acute abdomen.
  • DIAGNOSIS: A standardised physical examination combined with ultrasonography (US) represents the initial investigation in patients with acute abdominal pain.
  • The work-flow given in this paper restricts the use of CT imaging to less than 50 % of patients with acute abdominal pain.
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy should be considered in patients without a specific diagnosis after appropriate imaging and as an alternative to active clinical observation which is the current practice in patients with non-specific abdominal pain.
  • Bedside diagnostic laparoscopy is recommended in intensive care unit (ICU) patients with acute abdomen or sepsis of unknown origin, in suspicion of acute cholecystitis, diffuse gut hypoperfusion and mesenteric ischaemia or in refractory lactic acidosis, especially after cardiac surgery.
  • Early administration of analgesia to patients with acute abdominal pain in the emergency department will reduce the patient's discomfort without impairing clinically important diagnostic accuracy and is recommended on the basis of some prospective randomised trials.
  • However, the impact on diagnostic accuracy depends on dosage, kind of application and cause of acute abdominal pain.
  • There are significant differences between the knowledge of the current literature and the routine practice of providing analgesia as a survey has shown demonstrating that less than 50 % of paediatric emergency physicians and paediatric surgeons are usually willing to provide analgesia before definitive diagnosis.

  • The most common complaints among patients with cancer who present to the emergency department are related to the gastrointestinal system, and 40% of these patients complain of abdominal pain.
  • Immunosuppression may blunt many of the findings one expects in a healthy population of patients, thus rendering the clinical exam less reliable in many patients with cancer.
  • This article focuses specifically on patients with cancer who present with an acute abdomen, and it discusses how a concurrent malignancy can shape the differential diagnosis in these cases.

  • [Title] Immobilization effect of air-injected blanket (AIB) for abdomen fixation.
  • A new device for reducing the amplitude of breathing motion by pressing a patient's abdomen using an air-injected blanket (AIB) for external beam radiation treatments has been designed and tested.
  • The blanket is spread over the patient's abdomen with both ends of the blanket fixed to the sides of the treatment couch or a baseboard.
  • When inflated, the blanket balloons and effectively puts an even pressure on the patient's abdomen.
  • Fluoroscopic observation was performed to verify the usefulness of AIB for patients with lung, breast cancer, or abdominal cancers.
  • These initial testing demonstrated that AIB is useful for reducing patients' breathing motion in the thoracic and abdominal regions comfortably and consistently.

  • [Title] Intra-peritoneal cisplatin and whole abdomen hyperthermia for relapsed ovarian carcinoma.
  • The study was designed to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of IP cisplatin [CDDP] combined with intravenous thiosulphate and concurrent whole abdomen hyperthermia for advanced, recurrent or progressive ovarian carcinoma.
  • Between September 1991 and November 1998, 41 patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer received escalating doses of IP (IP) cisplatin (six cycles given every 3-4 weeks) and whole abdomen hyperthermia with intravenous thiosulphate as second line treatment.
  • Whole abdomen hyperthermia was administrated using a BSD-2000 annular phased array system.
  • No DLTs occurred in the phase I testing and the recommended dose for this combination schedule was 180 mg m-2 of IP cisplatin with thiosulphate and whole abdomen hyperthermia.
  • These promising results suggest a role for the use of adjuvant whole abdomen hyperthermia as a means of augmenting chemosensitization.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Anatomical bases for the radiological delineation of lymph node areas. Upper limbs, chest and abdomen.
  • Cancer spreads locally through direct infiltration into soft tissues, or at distance by invading vascular structures, then migrating through the lymphatic or blood flow.
  • Although cancer cells carried in the blood can end in virtually any corner of the body, lymphatic migration is usually stepwise, through successive nodal stops, which can temporarily delay further progression.
  • Similarly, excision of cancer is often completed by lymphatic dissection.
  • Both in radiotherapy and in surgery, advanced knowledge of the lymphatic pathways relevant to any tumour location is an important information for treatment preparation and execution.
  • This second part describes the lymphatics of the upper limb, of the thorax and of the upper abdomen.
  • Providing anatomical bases for the radiological delineation of lymph nodes areas in the axilla, in the chest and in the abdomen, it also offers a simplified classification for labeling the mediastinal and intra-abdominal nodal levels, grouped in each location inside three major functional areas (called I, II and III) which are all divided into three sublevels (named a, b or c).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Reirradiation to the abdomen for gastrointestinal malignancies.
  • BACKGROUND: Reirradiation to the abdomen could potentially play a role in palliation of symptoms or local control in patients with gastrointestinal malignancies.
  • Our goal was to retrospectively determine rates of toxicity, freedom from local progression and overall survival in gastrointestinal cancer patients treated with reirradiation to the abdomen.
  • METHODS: Between November 2002 and September 2008, 13 patients with a prior history of abdominal radiotherapy (median dose 45 Gy) were treated with reirradiation for recurrent or metastatic gastrointestinal malignancies.
  • One patient developed grade 3 acute toxicity (abdominal pain and gastrointestinal bleeding), requiring hospitalization during radiotherapy; subsequently, that patient experienced a grade 4 late toxicity (gastrointestinal bleeding).
  • CONCLUSION: Hyperfractionated accelerated reirradiation to the abdomen was well-tolerated with low rates of acute and late toxicity.
  • Reirradiation could play a role in providing a limited duration of local control in gastrointestinal cancer patients with a history of prior abdominal radiotherapy.

  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to analyze the characteristic features of Castleman disease in the abdomen and pelvis as suggested by imaging findings in order to deepen the recognition and understanding of this rare disease.
  • METHODS: A group of ten patients with pathologically proven Castleman disease in the abdomen (n = 9) and pelvis (n = 1) were included in this study.
  • Patients were 18 approximately 56-year-old (mean = 40); seven of them were men and three were women.
  • The pathological subtype of a sole disseminated case was plasma-cell type, where imaging findings showed a lining of well defined, sharply enhanced soft-tissue nodules in retroperitoneal zone.
  • CONCLUSION: Imaging findings of Castleman disease in the abdomen and pelvis are closely related to pathological type diagnosed.

  • [Title] Regional hyperthermia of the abdomen in conjunction with chemotherapy for peritoneal carcinomatosis: evaluation of two annular-phased-array applicators.
  • In this phase I/II study, we evaluated regional hyperthermia of the pelvis and abdomen using the annular-phased-array technique as an adjunct to chemotherapy.
  • METHODS: Forty-five patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis (with or without liver metastases) in colorectal cancer (CRC) (n = 16), ovarian cancer (OC) (n = 17), or gastric/pancreatic/biliary cancer (n = 12) underwent standard chemotherapy and regional hyperthermia.
  • Regional hyperthermia was applied using a SIGMA-60 applicator (OC), a SIGMA-Eye/MR applicator (CRC), or various ring applicators (gastric/pancreatic/biliary cancer).
  • RESULTS: Abdominal regional hyperthermia was well tolerated, with acceptable acute discomfort and no long-term morbidity.
  • The SIGMA-Eye/MR applicator achieved higher systemic temperatures (associated with higher systemic stress) and more effective heating of the upper abdomen; the SIGMA-60 applicator achieved higher temperatures (and power densities) in the pelvis.
  • Three-year overall survival was encouraging for patients with CRC (22%) and OC (29%) but not gastric/pancreatic/biliary cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS. The SIGMA-60 and SIGMA-Eye/MR applicators are feasible for abdominal heating and have low toxicity.
  • The SIGMA-60 applicator is specifically suitable for malignancies with high pelvic burden; the SIGMA-Eye/MR applicator better heats the upper abdomen, including the liver.

  • INTRODUCTION: Lung cancer metastases of small bowel are rare (1,1%), often with few or not symptoms.
  • This aspecific onset and the difficult physical-instrumental approach to small bowel, led often to diagnosis at autopsy.
  • This is not true for intestinal metastases that cause complications (haemorrhage, obstruction, perforation); in this cases emergency surgery leds to the diagnosis.
  • CASE REPORT: We describe a case of a male 56 years old patient with acute abdomen due to perforation (X-ray and CT).
  • He refers, about 6 months before, an upper right lobectomy for lung cancer, followed by adjuvant chemo-radiotherapy, because the presence of brain and bone metastases.
  • Histological examination shows the perforation of the intestinal wall tract with lung cancer metastases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our case shows that any acute abdomen in patient with lung cancer can be considered as expression of intestinal metastases.

  • Our institutional standard of care has been to obtain CT scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis to evaluate for metastatic disease.
  • We presumed abdomen and pelvic CT scans would not benefit this patient population.
  • Twenty patients (16%) presented with or developed abdomen/pelvis metastases and 10 of the 15 types of soft tissue sarcomas had abdominal or pelvic metastases.
  • A larger number of patients demonstrated metastatic disease in the abdomen and pelvis than anticipated.
  • We believe routine imaging of the abdomen and pelvic with CT for both staging and surveillance of all types of soft tissue sarcoma should be considered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intussusceptions as acute abdomen caused by Burkitt lymphoma: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Burkitt's lymphoma is a highly malignant, aggressive and rapidly growing B-cell neoplasm, which has low long-term survival rates.
  • The abdomen is the most frequent onset site of non endemic Burkitt's lymphoma.
  • Symptoms are often misleading and make diagnosis difficult.
  • Ileum intussusception as acute abdomen caused by Burkitt lymphoma is rare.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We are presenting a case of a 16 year-old male with acute abdomen, which three weeks prior initially has been surgically treated for acute appendicitis and Meckel diverticulitis.
  • CONCLUSION: Affected terminal ileum by Burkitt's lymphoma may mimic clinically acute appendicitis and investigation tools sometimes may not provide proper diagnosis.

  • In this prospective study, the patients with head and neck cancer admitted to the Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Haukeland University Hospital, underwent examination with ultrasound of the abdomen (112 patients) and total bone scintigraphy (118 patients) in the primary staging of the disease and before the start of treatment.
  • In only one patient did we find metastases of head and neck cancer in the liver by these additional investigations, and one patient was found to have bone metastases.
  • No second primary cancers were found by these extra examinations.
  • Based on these findings, we nowadays only use ultrasound of the abdomen and total bone scintigraphy as part of the general examination of new head and neck patients in selected cases.

  • A certain pressure exists within closed cavities such as the skull, the abdomen, the thorax, therefore allowing a good supplying to the organs inside.
  • Variations of intraabdominal pressure (IAP) over 10 mmHg will cause an intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) altering both the tissue and cell blood pressure and having an impact on some organs, thus achieving the co-called "abdominal compartment syndrome" (ACS).
  • Intraabdominal pressure increase can lead to some negative effects on both the intra- and extra-abdominal organs such as: cardiovascular, renal, respiratory and digestive systems.
  • ACS is defined as a pathologic status originating from the intraabdominal pressure increase over 20-25 mmHg, values determining a perfusion pressure decrease within the abdominal organs (APP).
  • IAP followed by IAH occurs in ileus, abdominal tumors, intraabdominal hemorrhage and in some morbid conditions: obesity, hepatic cirrhosis with ascites, pregnancy.

  • Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratomas is uncommon but present in clinical practice.
  • Especially in postmenopausal women, the clinical manifestation of a mature teratoma with undiagnosed malignant transformation as acute abdomen is extremely rare.
  • The prognosis is good if the cyst is not ruptured, is completely excised and the cancer does not extend beyond the capsule.
  • In any other case, the prognosis is unfavorable since recurrence is common and the tumor is chemoresistant.

  • [Title] Closed hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy with open abdomen: a novel technique to reduce exposure of the surgical team to chemotherapy drugs.
  • During closed-abdomen HIPEC, operating room staff are not exposed to drugs, but the distribution of the heated liquid within the abdomen is not optimal.
  • With open-abdomen HIPEC, the opposite is true.
  • Although the open-abdomen method is potentially more effective, it has not become a standard procedure because of the risk of exposure of members of the team to drugs.
  • METHODS: We present a new technique (closed HIPEC with open abdomen) which ensures protection against potentially contaminating exposure to liquids, vapours and aerosols, and allows permanent access to the whole abdominal cavity.
  • Its principle is to extend the abdominal surgical wound upwards with a sort of "glove-box".
  • The expander is draped over a special L-section metal frame placed above the abdomen.
  • Intra-abdominal temperature was maintained between 42 and 43 degrees C during most of the procedure.
  • The whole abdominal cavity was accessible to the surgeon, allowing optimal exposure of all peritoneal surfaces.

  • [Title] Phase I/II trial of intravenous Doxil and whole abdomen hyperthermia in patients with refractory ovarian cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: A phase I/II study of Doxil combined with whole abdomen hyperthermia was conducted in patients with refractory ovarian cancer.
  • Liposomal doxorubicin combined with hyperthermia has been shown to increase both liposomal delivery and drug extravasation into tumour xenografts resulting in enhanced cytotoxic effects.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty patients with either recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian cancer were enrolled.
  • Patients received intravenous (IV) Doxil at a dose of 40 mg m-2 as a 1-h infusion followed by whole abdomen hyperthermia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Therapy with intravenous Doxil and whole abdomen hyperthermia for patients with platinum/paclitaxel resistant ovarian cancer is feasible and does not negatively impact quality of life.

  • This allows multi-pass multi-planar studies that can be obtained during defined circulatory phases.
  • In addition to established clinical indications for abdominal CT such as preoperative MDCT of the liver or pancreas, MDCT of the abdomen is especially gaining ground in the work up for acute abdominal pain and abdominal trauma and is opening new indications for MDCT of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • The most common gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumor is the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).

  • [Title] [Intra-abdomen extragastrointestinal stromal tumors: a clinicopathologic study on 30 cases].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathological characteristics and prognostic factors in patients with intra-abdomen extragastrointestinal stromal tumors (EGISTs).
  • METHODS: The data of 47 patients of mesenchymal neoplasms that arose from the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneum, collected from July 1987 to June 2003 in our hospital with complete clinical and pathological data, were investigated retrospectively.
  • EGISTs were diagnosed by reviewing the tumor slides stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E).
  • Twelve cases arose from the mesentery, six from small omentum, eight from retroperitoneum and four from the abdominal cavity.
  • The size of tumors ranged from 4 to 30 cm (median 12.5 cm) in diameter and the tumor cell components mainly included spindle cells (23 cases), epithelioid cells (4 cases), and mixed cells (3 cases).
  • Univariate analysis showed that tumor size >10 cm, tumor necrosis, mitoses > or =5/50HPF, obvious nuclear atypia, moderate and poor differentiated tumor cells were predictors of poor prognosis.
  • Tumor necrosis, obvious nuclear atypia and mitoses > or =5/50HPF help to predict aggressive behaviors in EGISTs.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gasless abdomen in the adult: what does it mean?
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to illustrate the causes of a gasless abdomen in an adult.
  • CONCLUSION: The gasless abdomen in the adult is often interpreted as nonspecific, which does not provide useful information for the patient's physician.
  • There are at least six causes of the gasless abdomen in the adult.
  • A specific cause of the gasless abdomen can usually be made when the patient's history is known.
  • The most serious cause of the gasless abdomen is small-bowel obstruction with or without ischemia.

  • [Transliterated title] Open vacuum-pack, técnica ideal del cierre abdominal temporal diferido en las complicaciones tras cirugía citorreductora y quimioterapia intraperitoneal con hipertermia por carcinomatosis peritoneal.
  • Their post-operative progress and care needs, apart from differing from those of conventional patients, have not yet been completely defined or protocolised.
  • In this presentation we explain the special characteristics of these patients compared to the usual surgical patients, the possible physiopathological mechanisms which may give rise to the different types of complications, the circumstances when a temporary abdominal closure is necessary, the ideal conditions required for an optimal technique, and finally our experience with the open vacuum abdomen technique in the treatment of the complications that appear in patients treated by this new triple combined therapy.
  • The abdominal situation made a temporary closure desirable in 17 patients, having applied an open vacuum abdomen technique on every occasion.
  • We study this group of patients according their original type of tumour and stage of the disease at the cytoreductive procedure, peritonectomies and visceral resections required, type of postoperative complications, treatment applied and evolution.
  • RESULTS: A total of 52 open vacuum abdomen procedures were required (median, 2.8 per patient; range, 1-10) before the abdominal complication could be completely kept under control in these 17 patients.
  • Only 2 postoperative intestinal fistulas were directly related to this technique, and a primary closure of the whole abdominal wall was possible in 11 of these patients (66%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: As a consequence of this experience, in our opinion, the open vacuum abdomen is the ideal election technique to be employed in any temporary closure of the abdominal cavity for whatever reason it is required, including the worst possible surgical scenario, as we have demonstrated in the treatment of surgical complications after cytoreductive procedures and intraperitoneal chemohyperthermia.

  • [Title] Telomerase activity predicts malignancy in percutaneous image-guided needle biopsy specimens of the abdomen and pelvis.
  • PURPOSE: To determine prospectively if assessment of telomerase activity in percutaneous needle biopsy specimens improves sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of abdominal and pelvic malignancy.
  • A prospective double-blinded design was used to assess telomerase activity in abdominal and pelvic biopsy specimens from 99 patients (64 men, 35 women; age range, 22-87 years).
  • The final diagnosis was based on chart review at a minimum 1-year follow-up.
  • Combining the two tests (n=86) and classifying a positive reading with either test as malignant improved sensitivity (83%) (P <.05) without altering specificity (76%).
  • CONCLUSION: In percutaneous biopsy specimens of the abdomen and pelvis, the combination of cytologic examination and telomerase activity yielded an increased sensitivity in predicting malignancy.
  • In addition, assessing telomerase activity can help identify cancer even when cytologic results are indeterminate.
