  • [Title] Comprehensive imaging of tumor recurrence in breast cancer patients using whole-body MRI at 1.5 and 3 T compared to FDG-PET-CT.
  • PURPOSE: To compare the diagnostic accuracy for the detection of tumor recurrence in breast cancer patients using whole-body-MRI (WB-MRI) at 1.5 or 3T compared to FDG-PET-CT.
  • Coronal T1w-TSE- and STIR-sequences, HASTE-imaging of the lungs, contrast-enhanced T1w- and T2w-TSE-sequences of the liver, brain and abdomen were performed, using a WB-MRI-scanner at 1.5 (n=23) or 3T (n=10).
  • Presence of local recurrence, lymph node involvement and distant metastatic disease was assessed using clinical and radiological follow-up as a standard of reference.
  • RESULTS: Tumor recurrence was found in 20 of 33 patients.
  • Both modalities revealed two recurrent tumors of the breast.
  • CONCLUSION: WB-MRI and PET-CT are useful for the detection of tumor recurrence in the follow-up of breast cancer.
  • WB-MRI is highly sensitive to distant metastatic disease.
  • Tumor screening with WB-MRI is feasible at 1.5 and 3T, scan time is further reduced at 3T with identical resolution.

  • [Title] Tumor model for laparoscopy in pediatric oncology: subperitoneal inoculation of human hepatoblastoma cells in nude rats.
  • A special tumor model could facilitate a variety of investigations.
  • METHODS: 7 immuno-incompetent (rnu/rnu) rats (mean weight 198 g) received a stab incision in the lower abdomen to insert a 4 mm scope.
  • Under laparoscopic guidance (CO2 pressure of 1 mmHg, flow of 0.2 l/min) an 18 G needle was introduced, to inject several subperitoneal deposits of the tumor cell suspension (HuH6, 3 x 10 (6) in 1 ml of RPMI-1640 medium).
  • Tumor growth was allowed for 6 - 7 weeks and finally the animals were laparoscopically evaluated for peritoneal metastases.
  • RESULTS: One animal was investigated after 6 weeks without evidence of tumor growth.
  • CONCLUSION: Subperitoneal inoculation of human HB cells in nude rats achieves intraabdominal tumor growth.

  • [Title] Eliminating unenhanced CT when evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to evaluate a CT protocol that eliminates the unenhanced phase for imaging pediatric abdominal neoplasms.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively performed a case series study of all the abdominal CT scans on children and adolescents found in our archives.
  • The radiologists were separately asked to formulate the most probable diagnosis and to decide whether tumor calcification was present.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of each method for diagnosing the more frequent neoplasms were also measured.
  • The sensitivity and specificity of the two methods for the most frequent neoplasms were similar.
  • The evaluations without the unenhanced phase showed good sensitivity and specificity for tumor calcifications.
  • CONCLUSION: CT protocols without the unenhanced phase are a viable alternative for evaluating abdominal neoplasms in children and adolescents.

  • [Title] Acute abdomen due to twisted ovarian immature teratoma in a 7-year-old girl: magnetic resonance findings with histopathologic correlation.
  • Immature teratomas represent only the 1% of ovarian teratomas, and they are the third most common primitive germ cell tumor; generally, they are congenital lesions and affect mainly the first 2 decades.
  • We present the case of a 7-year-old child who came at our attention because of an acute low abdominal pain due to the torsion of an ovarian immature grade 1 teratoma on its pedicle.
  • The magnetic resonance imaging characteristics of the neoplasm are reviewed and correlated with histopathologic findings.
  • As it was highlighted in our case, magnetic resonance imaging may be part of the diagnostic approach of this rare disease entity also in a small child in emergency.

  • [Title] Local peritonectomy highly attracts free floating intraperitoneal colorectal tumour cells in a rat model.
  • Tumour recurrence may occur early after surgery.
  • One potential mechanism is the ability of peritoneal lesions to attract tumour cells.
  • METHODS: In Wag-Rija rats, the parietal peritoneum was resected on a defined area, a corresponding control area was marked in the same rat and colorectal tumour cells (CC531) were applied into the abdomen after surgery.
  • Tissue was harvested 6 or 9 days after surgery to evaluate intra-abdominal tumour growth.
  • Additionally tumour cells were applied 2 weeks after peritoneal resection to investigate tumour growth in a healed area of peritonectomy.
  • Specimens were evaluated for macroscopic tumour spread, weight of the abdominal wall and maximal tumour thickness.
  • RESULTS: Macroscopic tumour spread, weight of the abdominal wall and maximal tumour thickness were significantly increased within the area of peritonectomy after both 6 and 9 days compared to the control area.
  • However, only macroscopic tumour expansion was significantly increased in the healed area of peritonectomy.
  • CONCLUSION: Peritoneal defects may play an important role in the pathogenesis of tumour implantation and might have some impact on tumour recurrence.

  • [Title] Thoracoabdominal wall tumour seeding after percutaneous radiofrequency ablation for recurrent colorectal liver metastatic lesion: a case report with a brief literature review.
  • Percutaneous access of neoplastic liver tissue is the most common access and electrodes are placed with imaging guidance into the tumour to be ablated.
  • Tumour dissemination related to the percutaneous access seems to be very unusual.
  • Herein, we present a rare case of thoracoabdominal tumour wall dissemination after RFA of a recurrent hepatic colorectal metastasis previously removed by surgery.
  • A 64-year-old man with a recurrent hepatic metastatic lesion was treated with internally cooled radiofrequency (RF) for ablation of a 3x3 cm in size tumour mass.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the upper abdomen and carcinoembryonic (CEA) antigen were used for estimation of the disease progression in the patient's follow-up.
  • Ten months after RFA the patient presented abdominal pain and a mass appeared on the right thoracoabdominal area with simultaneous lung metastases.
  • In conclusion, a large size, bulky and superficial mass on the liver parenchyma adjacent to the thoracoabdominal wall as well as multiple RFA sessions, seem to represent risk factors for tumour dissemination through the needle electrode used during the RFA procedure in hepatic metastases of colorectal cancer.

  • This first-in-human study of [18F]FMAU was conducted as a pilot in patients to determine its biodistribution and suitability for imaging DNA synthesis in tumors using positron emission tomography (PET).
  • RESULTS: Active tumors in the breast, brain, lung and prostate were clearly visualized with standardized uptake values (SUVs) of 2.19, 1.28, 2.21, and 2.27-4.42, respectively.
  • In the abdomen, increased physiological uptake was seen in the liver (SUV 10.07-20.88) and kidneys (SUV 7.18-15.66) due to metabolism and/or excretion, but the urinary bladder was barely visible (SUV(mean) 2.03).
  • CONCLUSION: Tumors in the brain, prostate, thorax, and bone can be clearly visualized with FMAU.
  • In the upper abdomen, visualization is limited by the physiological uptake by the liver and kidneys.

  • Staging investigations in the Malawi 2003 BL protocol included abdominal ultrasonography.
  • This sometimes demonstrated tumor that was not palpable.
  • Patients with no palpable tumor following induction with three courses of cyclophosphamide were considered to be in remission, although residual intraabdominal tumor was documented in some by chance.
  • We repeated ultrasonography on day 29 on 22 new patients with non-palpable abdominal BL following induction.
  • The relapse rate after 1 year correlated with the largest residual tumor volume, and was 17% for tumors 0-35 ml, and 75% for tumors > or = 35 ml in volume.

  • [Title] [Regulations and lymphadenectomy strategy of mediastinal and upper abdominal lymph node metastasis in thoracic esophageal carcinoma].
  • This study was to investigate the regulations of lymph node metastasis of thoracic esophageal carcinoma in the mediastinum and upper abdomen, and explore the rational lymphadenectomy with Ivor-Lewis procedure.
  • METHODS: A total of 1 412 thoracic esophageal carcinoma patients underwent radical esophagectomy and mediastinal and abdominal lymphadenectomy by Ivor-Lewis procedure from 1990 to 2005 at Yangzhong People's Hospital; 517 of them underwent right para-trachea triangle field lymphadenectomy through the right pleural apical approach.
  • The lymph node metastasis rates were 32.30% in the right para-trachea triangle, 18.43% in the upper mediastinum, 5.31% in the lower mediastinum, and 17.28% in the upper abdomen(P<0.001).
  • Of the 13 916 resected lymph nodes, 2 662 (19.13%) were positive; the metastasis degree (positive lymph nodes/resected lymph modes) were 23.83% in the right para-trachea triangle, 18.92% in the upper mediastinum, 21.07% in the lower mediastinum, and 17.20% in the upper abdomen.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Modified midline abdominal wound closure technique in complicated/high risk laparotomies.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the local wound complications in complicated/ high risk laparotomies in terms of wound dehiscence and incisional hernia formation with a modified technique of midline abdominal wound closure.
  • METHODOLOGY: Cases of complicated/high risk abdominal conditions, which required laparotomy, were included in the study.
  • A modified midline abdominal wound closure technique was used.
  • RESULTS: Out of the 36 patients undergoing this surgical technique, 20 (55.55%) had inflammatory/intra-abdominal sepsis, 8 (22.22%) had trauma, 7 (19.44%) had neoplasia and 1 (2.77%) had vascular aetiology.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with extensive widespread generalized peritonitis and metastatic abdominal tumours need special attention regarding wound closure.
  • This modified technique of midline abdominal wound closure is associated with low incidence of wound dehiscence and incisional hernia formation.

  • [Title] Use of novel serum markers in clinical follow-up of Sertoli-Leydig cell tumours.
  • BACKGROUND: Sertoli-Leydig cell tumours of the ovary account for only 0.2% of malignant ovarian tumours.
  • Two-thirds of all patients become apparent due to the tumour's hormone production.
  • METHODS: A 41-year-old patient (gravida 4, para 4) presented with dyspnoea, enlarged abdominal girth and melaena.
  • The standard tumour marker for ovarian cancer (CA 125) was elevated to 984 U/mL.
  • RESULTS: Surgical exploration of the abdomen revealed a mouldering tumour of both adnexes extending to the level of the navel.
  • The final histological report described a malignant sex-cord stroma tumour, a Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour, emanating from both ovaries.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy and regional hyperthermia were performed due to the malignant potential and incomplete resection of the tumour.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Undifferentiated Sertoli-Leydig cell tumours show a poor clinical course.
  • As only two-thirds of patients with this rare disease present with elevated hormone levels, new markers deserve further investigation to offer more specific, individualised tumour monitoring.

  • [Title] Obstructive jaundice caused by secondary pancreatic tumor from malignant solitary fibrous tumor of pleura: a case report.
  • A 77-year-old man on systemic chemotherapy against postoperative bilateral multiple lung metastases of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura suffered from pruritus and jaundice.
  • Abdominal computed tomography showed a tumor with peripheral enhancement in the pancreatic head, accompanied with the dilatation of intra- and extra-hepatic bile ducts.
  • He was diagnosed as having obstructive jaundice caused by a pancreatic head tumor.
  • The pancreatic head tumor was presumably diagnosed as the metastasis of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura, because the findings on the pancreatic head tumor on abdominal CT were similar to those on the primary lung lesion of malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • The pancreatic tumor grew rapidly after the implantation of metallic stent in the inferior part of the common bile duct.
  • Autopsy revealed a tumor that spread from the pancreatic head to the hepatic hilum.
  • Immunohistochemically the pancreatic head tumor cells were negative for staining of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) or CD117, but positive for vimentin, CD34 and CD99.
  • These findings are consistent with those on malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • We report the first case of obstructive jaundice caused by a secondary pancreatic tumor from malignant solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.

  • Proteus syndrome is an extremely rare congenital disorder that produces multifocal overgrowth of tissue.
  • This report presents a surgical case of a large lipoma in the abdominal wall of a patient with Proteus syndrome.
  • The neoplasm increased in size gradually, producing hemihypertrophy of her left lower extremity and trunk, and spread to her retroperitoneum and her left abdominal wall.
  • She experienced gradually progressive constipation, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen demonstrated a large mass in the subcutaneous adipose tissue of the left lower abdominal wall which measured 12 cm x 8 cm x 6 cm in diameter and encased the left colon.
  • This mass in the abdominal wall was excised.
  • The excision of the large lipoma in the abdominal wall contributed to the improved bowel passage in this patient with Proteus syndrome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Abdominal computed tomography and ultrasonography showed a solid tumor in the middle of abdomen.
  • Single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE) subsequently showed the tumor in Meckel's diverticulum.
  • At laparotomy, we found the tumor at the blind end of the diverticulum and enlarged lymph node about 7 cm in diameter in the small intestinal mesentery.
  • Segmental resection of the ileum, including the tumor-bearing diverticulum, was performed along with regional lymph node dissection.
  • Histologically, origin of the tumor was assumed to be ectopic gastric mucosa.
  • Although neoplasm in Meckel's diverticulum is difficult to diagnose preoperatively, the combination of CE and SBE was useful.
  • Based on our search, this is thought to be the first case of neoplasm in Meckel's diverticulum diagnosed endoscopically.

  • [Title] Abdominal wall endometriosis: a report of 2 cases with primary diagnosis by fine needle aspiration.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall endometriosis is usually preceded by obstetric operations and occasionally can be spontaneous.
  • The diagnosis can be suspected clinically when there is systemic endometriosis or cyclic pain; otherwise it is difficult to differentiate it from other abdominal tumors and nonneoplastic conditions.
  • Fine needle aspiration is an extremely valuable and safe tool for preoperative evaluation of abdominal wall endometriosis as the disease usually presents as a cutaneous/subcutaneous mass.
  • CASES: Two cases of abdominal wall endometriosis occurred.
  • CONCLUSION: The cytopathologic diagnosis ofendometriosis is feasible, and we need to include endometriosis in the differential diagnosis of an abdominal wall mass in a females.

  • [Title] Papillary cystic neoplasm of the pancreas: a rare presentation.
  • Papillary cystic neoplasm is a rare tumor and is usually found in young female patients.
  • PROCEDURE: Here we describe a rare case of PCN in 16 year old girl, which was presented with abdominal pain in last 3 years.
  • Preoperative diagnosis was suggested by ECHO and CT of the abdomen.
  • The sonographic examination of the abdomen showed a tumor measuring 6.5 x 5.5cm in diameter in epigastrium.
  • ECHO and CT of the abdomen suggested the diagnosis which was confirmed by histopatological examination.
  • CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of PCN is suspected by ECHO and CT of the abdomen and confirmed by specific histologic features.
  • Prognosis is good and tumor should be excised whenever detected.

  • Immediately following extensive cytoreductive surgery, early postoperative closed abdomen CHPP was performed.
  • A closed abdomen CHPP procedure lasting 1 hour and standard mitomycin C at a dosage of 15 mg/m(2) is probably as efficacious as other hyperthermic procedures, using higher mitomycin C dosages, with a comparable or lower number of cases of side effects.
  • These results, as in other published phase II studies, justify future randomized trials to assess definitively the role of CHPP in the treatment of locally advanced colon neoplasms in western countries.

  • [Title] Twenty-five year outcome of sequential abdominal radiotherapy and melphalan:implications for future management of epithelial carcinoma of the ovary.
  • METHODS: From 1970 to 1976, 94 women with stages I-III epithelial ovarian carcinoma enrolled in a prospective nonrandomized clinical trial were prescribed 20 Gy to the upper abdomen and 50 Gy to the pelvis followed by courses of melphalan (1 mg/kg/course).
  • Disease-free survival was 48% at 5 years and remained at 45% from 10 to 25 years.
  • Of the 31 patients undergoing a second-look surgical procedure, 84% were free of tumor.
  • Stage and the presence of palpable postoperative disease were significant prognostic factors.
  • Disease-free survivals were 95% from 5 to 25 years for stage I, 70% at 5 years and 60% at 25 years for stage II, and 20% from 5 to 25 years for stage III (P < 0.0001).
  • Although no patient with postoperative palpable tumor was cured, 25% lived beyond 2 years.
  • Stage III patients without postoperative palpable tumor achieved a 47% 25-year disease-free survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The long-term disease-free survival obtained with abdominopelvic radiotherapy followed by single alkylating agent chemotherapy has not been exceeded by three subsequent decades of multiagent chemotherapy trials.
  • Abdominal radiotherapy may be useful to consolidate complete responses following therapy multiagent chemotherapy, particularly with the upper abdominal dose escalation provided by intensity modulated radiation therapy and possibly in conjunction with chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Intraoperative hand held gamma probe detection of a recurrent nonfunctional neuroendocrine tumor.
  • CONTEXT: The advantage of intraoperative gamma probe detection with (111)In-DPTA-octreotide radiotracer has previously been demonstrated in functional neuroendocrine tumors.
  • We report the only known case of a recurrent nonfunctional pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm localized intraoperatively using this radiotracer and a hand held gamma probe.
  • CASE REPORT: A 51-year-old woman was found to have a recurrence 23 months after laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy, splenectomy and wedge resection of a liver metastasis for a non-functional neuroendocirne neoplasm of the pancreas.
  • There were concerns regarding the ability to localize the lesion in the upper abdomen.
  • CONCLUSION: In this case the technique of preoperative injection with octreotide radiotracer and intraoperative hand held gamma probe successfully localized a nonfunctional neuroendocrine tumor that CT scan and intraoperative exploration failed to identify.

  • [Title] Late recurrence after surgical resection of a pancreatic tumor in von Hippel-Lindau disease.
  • CONTEXT: Patients with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, a dominantly inherited familial cancer syndrome, develop a variety of tumors in different organ systems which make the clinical management of these patients complex.
  • Two years later, a pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed to remove a pancreatic mass which turned out to be a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor.
  • After a long period of relative wellness, 21 years after the surgical resection of her primary pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor, abdominal lymph node metastases of pancreatic neuroendocrine origin occurred.
  • In fact, three abdominal nodules were removed by laparoscopic surgery, and the histological examination showed well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors with similar immunohistochemical characteristics and Ki67 below 1%.
  • Considering the patient's clinical history, an inherited cause was postulated and multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 was first investigated, but the result was negative.
  • CONCLUSION: Although no local and/or distant tumor recurrences are usually reported in radically operated on von Hippel-Lindau pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor patients after a median time of five years of follow-up, the present patient had a recurrence after a very long period of time, suggesting that a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor associated with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome may behave more aggressively than that has previously been described, thus requiring a life-long follow-up.

  • [Title] Intraoperative spillage of favorable histology wilms tumor cells: influence of irradiation and chemotherapy regimens on abdominal recurrence. A report from the National Wilms Tumor Study Group.
  • PURPOSE: We undertook this study to determine (1) the frequency with which spilled tumor cells of favorable histology produced intra-abdominal disease in patients treated with differing chemotherapy regimens and abdominal radiation therapy (RT) and (2) the patterns of relapse and outcomes in such patients.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: The influence of RT dose (0, 10, and 20 Gy), RT fields (flank, whole abdomen), and chemotherapy with dactinomycin and vincristine (2 drugs) vs. added doxorubicin (three drugs) on intra-abdominal tumor recurrence rates was analyzed by logistic regression in 450 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Irradiation (10 Gy or 20 Gy) reduced abdominal tumor recurrence rates after tumor spillage.
  • Tumor spillage in Stage II patients reduced relapse-free survival and overall survival, but only the latter was of statistical significance.
  • These data provide a basis for assessing the risks vs. benefits when considering treatment for children with favorable histology Wilms tumor and surgical spillage.

  • [Title] Landmarking of computed tomographic images to assist in segmentation of abdominal tumors caused by neuroblastoma.
  • Segmentation of the primary tumor mass in neuroblastoma could aid radiologists by facilitating reproducible and objective quantification of the tumor's tissue composition and size.
  • However, due to the heterogeneous nature of the tissue components of the neuroblastic tumor, ranging from low-attenuation necrosis to high-attenuation calcification, some of which possess strong similarities with adjacent nontumoral tissues in computed tomographic (CT) images, segmentation of the tumor is a difficult problem.
  • In this context, landmarking methods are proposed to assist in the segmentation of neuroblastic tumors.
  • The use of the landmarks assisted in limiting the scope of the tumor segmentation process to the abdomen, and resulted in the reduction of the false-positive error rates by 26.9%, on the average, over 10 CT exams, and improved the result of segmentation of neuroblastic tumors.

  • [Title] Aggressive fibromatosis (desmoid tumors): definition, occurrence, pathology, diagnostic problems, clinical behavior, genetic background.
  • Aggressive fibromatosis, usually called desmoid tumor develops from muscle connective tissue, fasciae and aponeuroses.
  • This neoplasm is composed of spindle (fibrocyte-like) cells.
  • As regards the site, aggressive fibromatoses can be divided into: extra-abdominal in the area of the shoulder and pelvic girdle or chest and neck wall; abdominal in abdominal wall muscles; intra-abdominal concerning pelvis, mesentery connective tissue or retroperitoneal space.
  • Desmoid tumor is a neoplasm which rarely turns malignant and is non-metastasizing but demonstrates ability to local infiltration into tissue and is characterized by high risk of recurrence (25-65%) after surgical treatment.
  • Desmoid tumor etiology is uncertain.
  • This neoplasm occurs in sporadic (idiopathic) form and is also associated with some familial neoplastic syndromes.
  • Sporadic tumors are more frequent in women than in men from 2 : 1 to 5 : 1.
  • Abdomen injury--most frequently due to surgery is said to play an important role in the initiation of fibrous tissue proliferative process in the cases of abdominal and intra abdominal forms.
  • High cells growth potential with relatively high local malignancy is observed in about 10% of cases with sporadic tumors as well as in those FAP-associated.

  • Currently UK guidelines for the management of cutaneous melanoma at intermediate or high risk of recurrent disease (American Joint Cancer Committee) AJCC IIB disease or worse (Breslow 2.01-4.0mm with ulceration or Breslow >4mm) should have the following staging investigations: chest X-ray; liver ultrasonography or computed tomographic (CT) scan with intravenous contrast enhancement of chest, abdomen and pelvis; liver function tests; lactate dehydrogenase and full blood count.
  • All of these patients exhibited symptoms and signs of clinical metastatic disease.
  • Head metastases are at least as common as other regions such as the chest & abdomen and more common than in the pelvis.
  • CONCLUSION: CT staging for cutaneous melanoma is not indicated unless there are signs or symptoms of metastatic disease.
  • If there are symptoms and signs of metastatic disease than patients should be staged and we advocate that staging of AJCC IIB/C should include imaging of the head in addition to chest, abdomen and pelvis.

  • Paragangliomas are extra-adrenal tumors of the autonomic nervous system and may be found within the skull base, neck, chest, and abdomen.
  • When presenting within the abdominal cavity, they may arise as a primary retroperitoneal neoplasm and can mimic vascular malformations or other conditions related to specific retroperitoneal organs such as the pancreas, kidneys, or adrenals.
  • Retroperitoneal paragangliomas are mostly benign with good prognosis; however, they can present with abdominal pain, palpable mass, or hypertensive episodes.
  • Surgical excision remains the mainstay of treatment, although advanced disease and proximity to vital organs can make excision difficult or impossible.

  • MRI of the head showed a large 8 cm tumor extending from the left frontal subcutaneous tissue through the skull into the epidural space.
  • CT scan of the abdomen, pelvis and thorax revealed a uterine mass and showed multiple signal abnormalities in the ribs and vertebra indicative of metastasis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This case illustrates that although scalp or intracranial metastases from endometrial adenocarcinoma are very rare, it must remain in the differential diagnosis in an elderly woman with dysfunctional uterine bleeding and a scalp tumor.

  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-two new Wilms' tumor patients attended the clinic (NEMROCK) from January 1994 until January 2001.
  • Abdominal radiation therapy, 1080cGY, was given in case of tumor spillage during surgery either to the involved flank or the whole abdomen depending on whether contamination was limited to the flank only or the whole abdomen.
  • CONCLUSION: Multivariate analysis revealed that stage and residual disease after surgery significantly affected overall survival; while histopathology and stage affected significantly disease-free survival.
  • Moreover, our study revealed that residual disease after surgery affected significantly the incidence of local recurrence and distant metastases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of secondary cytoreductive surgery in the outcome of patients who had recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma that was limited to <or=5 recurrence sites within the abdomen or pelvis on preoperative imaging studies and attempt to define selection criteria associated with improved survival, with specific attention to the number of lesions suspicious for recurrent disease.
  • METHODS: : Patients who underwent secondary surgical cytoreduction for recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer between September 1997 and March 2005 were identified retrospectively from tumor registry databases.
  • On multivariate analysis, the statistically significant and independent predictors of overall survival were a diagnosis-to-recurrence interval >or=18 months (median survival, 49 months vs 3 months; P < .01), the number of radiographic recurrence sites (median survival, 50 months for patients with 1 or 2 sites vs 12 months for patients with 3 to 5 sites; P < .03), and residual disease (median survival, 50 months for patients with no macroscopic residual disease vs 7.2 months for patients with macroscopic residual disease; P < .01).
  • Age, tumor grade, histology, CA-125 level, ascites, and tumor size were not associated significantly with survival.

  • [Title] Utility of various functional and anatomic imaging modalities for detection of ectopic adrenocorticotropin-secreting tumors.
  • CONTEXT: Because ectopic ACTH-secreting (EAS) tumors are often occult, improved imaging is needed.
  • PATIENTS: Forty-one subjects participated, 30 (17 female) with resected EAS tumors and 11 (three female) with occult EAS, based on inferior petrosal sinus sampling results and imaging studies.
  • INTERVENTION: INTERVENTION included CT and MRI of neck, chest, abdomen, LOCT (with or without HOCT) and FDG- or F-DOPA-PET without CT every 6-12 months.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Tumor identification was the main outcome measure.
  • Eighteen patients had tumor resected on the first visit; otherwise, surgery occurred 33 +/- 25 (9-99) months later.
  • Tumor size was 1.9 +/- 1.7 (0.8-8.0) cm; 83% were intrathoracic.

  • [Title] Primary tumors of jejunum and ileum as a cause of intestinal obstruction: a case control study.
  • BACKGROUND: Small-bowel tumors are rare and account for 1-2% of all gastrointestinal neoplasms.
  • Most of these tumors are found at surgery indicated for other diagnosis or intestinal obstruction.
  • The rarity, unclear presentation and diagnostic difficulty of these tumors stimulated our interest to review our experience with emergency surgery for intestinal obstruction secondary to jejunoileal tumors.
  • METHODS: We reviewed 17 patients operated on for intestinal obstruction secondary to benign and malignant primary tumors of jejunum and ileum at our institution the last 10 years.
  • The most frequent tumors found were GIST (36%) followed by lymphomas (24%) and adenocarcinomas (18%).
  • Most tumors (65%) were located in the ileum.
  • Mean survival for patients with malignant tumors was 19.5+/-13 months, and for patients with benign tumors 72+/-20 months (p<0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Jejunoileal tumors present frequently in patients younger than 49 years of age.
  • Ileal tumors are more likely to develop intestinal obstruction than jejunal tumors.
  • Emergency surgery for these patients precludes a complete and negative margin resection and constitutes a risk factor for residual disease and short-term survival.

  • MRI of the abdomen (T1w, fat saturated, and iv-contrast) shows a diffuse contrast enhancing mass of the left abdominal wall (Figure 1a, arrow) with infiltration of the peritoneal cavity (Figure 1b, arrow).
  • Because a malignant process was suspected the patient underwent abdominal surgery and excision of the tumor.
  • Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic granulomatous disease, which affects most commonly the cervicofacial and abdominal area.
  • Because of its rarity and non-specific symptoms, abdominal actinomycosis is usually diagnosed postoperatively since most patients undergo exploratory laparotomy for a suspected neoplasm.

  • [Title] Elevated anti-Zta IgG levels and EBV viral load are associated with site of tumor presentation in endemic Burkitt's lymphoma patients: a case control study.
  • BACKGROUND: Endemic Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) is an extranodal tumor appearing predominantly in the jaw in younger children while abdominal tumors predominate with increasing age.
  • However, these studies have neither determined if there were any differences based on the site of clinical presentation of the tumor nor examined a broader panel of EBV and P. falciparum antigens.
  • Interestingly, when we grouped BL patients into those presenting with abdominal tumors or with jaw tumors, we observed significantly higher levels of anti-Zta IgG levels (p < 0.0065) and plasma EBV viral loads (p < 0.033) in patients with abdominal tumors compared to patients with jaw tumors.
  • CONCLUSION: Elevated antibodies to Zta and elevated plasma EBV viral load could be relevant biomarkers for BL and could also be used to confirm BL presenting in the abdominal region.

  • This results in improved lesion detection of benign as well as malignant abdominal tumours.
  • The ability to scan through the entire abdomen in seconds allows multiphasic acquisitions.
  • Hypervascularized solid abdominal tumours are best depicted within the time generally regarded as the arterial dominant phase in MDCT, conversely hypovascular lesions are best depicted during venous phase imaging.
  • The acquisition of an early arterial phase provides precise documentation of the arterial vascular system and should be obtained in preoperative abdominal imaging.
  • Three clear separate circulatory phases enable best results in the pretherapeutic work-up of abdominal patients.
  • Regarding follow-up oncologic work-up in colorectal metastatic disease a venous dominant phase might be the optimal protocol.
  • Especially for hypervascular tumours, e.g.
  • The overall improvement in precise timing and better visibility enable a comprehensive approach to abdominal imaging in MDCT.

  • [Title] Positron emission tomography detection of distant metastatic or synchronous disease in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer receiving preoperative chemoradiation.
  • Choice of optimal treatment--neoadjuvant chemoradiation versus systemic chemotherapy alone--depends on accurate assessment of distant disease.
  • We prospectively evaluated the ability of [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose ([18F]FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) to detect distant disease in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer who were otherwise eligible for combined modality therapy (CMT).
  • Sites other than the rectum, mesorectum, or the area along the inferior mesenteric artery were considered distant and were divided into nine groups: neck, lung, mediastinal lymph node (LN), abdomen, liver, colon, pelvis, peripheral LN, and soft tissue.
  • Two nuclear medicine physicians blinded to clinical information used PET images and a five-point scale (0-4) to determine certainty of disease.
  • RESULTS: At a median follow-up of 34 months, the overall accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of PET in detecting distant disease were 93.7%, 77.8%, and 98.7% respectively.
  • Greatest accuracy was demonstrated in detection of liver (accuracy = 99.9%, sensitivity = 100%, specificity = 98.8%) and lung (accuracy = 99.9%, sensitivity = 80%, specificity = 100%) disease; PET detected 11/12 confirmed malignant sites in liver and lung.
  • A total of 10 patients were confirmed to have M1 stage disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Baseline PET in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer reliably detects metastatic disease in liver and lung.
  • PET may play a significant role in defining extent of distant disease in selected cases, thus impacting the choice of neoadjuvant therapy.

  • His classic paper of 1863 on the anastomoses between the parietal and visceral branches of the abdominal aorta, later known as the sub-peritoneal arterial plexus of Turner, has mostly been forgotten.
  • In the current paper, we discuss the sub-peritoneal arterial plexus as described by Turner in 1863 and review the literature concerning its potential clinical significance in the kidney, emphasizing its probable role in the metastatic spread of various tumors of abdominal organs and in the continuing viability of the kidney after renal artery occlusion.
