  • [Title] Virtual CO2 MDCT pancreatography: a new feasible technique for minimally invasive pancreatectomy in intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms.
  • METHODOLOGY: We investigated the feasibility of a new technique employing three-dimensional (3D) virtual pancreatography using multi-detector CT (MDCT) with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas as a negative contrast agent for detection of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas requiring minimally invasive surgery.
  • RESULTS: Contrast-enhanced MDCT scan of the abdomen diagnosed 4- to 20-mm multilocular septated cysts in the head-uncinate process of the pancreas.
  • There was no residual pancreatic cyst and tumor after surgery.
  • The resected tumor was diagnosed as branch duct type intraductal papillary mucinous adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To report the uncommon case of a woman with abdominal pain and a complex adnexal mass, who was subsequently found to have medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) metastatic to the ovary.
  • METHODS: We present the clinical history, physical findings, laboratory and imaging studies, and pathologic findings in a woman with metastatic MTC and locally aggressive disease.
  • RESULTS: A 38-year-old woman with abdominal and pelvic pain underwent a computed tomographic scan of the abdomen, which showed a complex left adnexal mass.
  • After laparoscopic left oophorectomy, histopathologic analysis of the resected ovary suggested the presence of a metastatic neuroendocrine tumor.
  • Further work-up was suggestive of MTC, which prompted RET testing for multiple endocrine neoplasia.
  • The patient underwent left thyroid lobectomy and selective lymph node dissection but later required tracheostomy because of tumoral invasion of the trachea, laser debulking of the tumor, and external beam radiation therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • An internal target volume (ITV) accounting for respiratory-induced tumor motion is best obtained using 4DCT.
  • In such cases, an external fiducial on the abdomen can be used as a substitute for tumor motion and CT images are acquired when the marker position matches - as judged by the therapist/physicist - its positions at previously determined free-breathing (FB) respiratory extrema (FB insp, FB exp).
  • Our findings indicate that relying solely on abdominal external markers for accurate BH CT imaging in order to accurately estimate FB extrema positions may be subject to significant error.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The advent of whole-body MRI (WB-MRI) has introduced tumor imaging with a systemic approach compared to established sequential, multi-modal diagnostic algorithms.
  • More flexible protocols, e.g. including T1-weighted TSE- and STIR-imaging, dedicated lung imaging or dynamic contrast-enhanced studies of the abdomen can be performed within less than 45 min.
  • For initial tumor staging PET-CT as a competing whole-body modality in oncologic imaging has proved more accurate for the definition of T-stage and lymph node assessment, using the additional metabolic information of PET for the assessment of tumor viability and therapy response.
  • WB-MRI has shown advantages for the detection of distant metastatic disease, especially from tumors frequently spreading to the liver or brain and it is especially useful as a radiation-free alternative for the surveillance of tumor patients with multiple follow-up exams.

  • [Title] Mixed germ cell tumor of the testicle with ravdomuosarcomatous component: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Testicular tumors can be classified as seminomatous and non-seminomatous germ-cell tumor (NSGCT) types.
  • Mixed germ cell tumors contain more than one germ cell component and are much more common than any of the pure histologic forms representing 32%-60% of all germ cell tumors.
  • The composition of these tumors varies.
  • Here we present a rare case of a mixed germ cell tumor composed of seminoma, Yolk sack tumor and teratoma containing a sarcoma component of somatic type malignancy.
  • CT scan of the abdomen showed nodular metastasis involving the interaortocaval, precaval, and right para-aortic lymph nodes.
  • After the 2nd cycle the patient discontinued the chemotherapy and when he came for follow-up after a gap of 3 months, despite the normalisation in tumor markers values, the retroperitoneal mass was relapsed.
  • CONCLUSION: More than 50% of germ-cell tumors include more than 2 basic germ-cell tumor types, with the exception of spermatocytic seminoma.
  • About 90% of the patients with nonseminomatous tumors can achieve complete cure with aggressive chemotherapy and most of them can be cured.
  • Although prognosis of testicular tumors depends largely on clinical stage, histological type and adhesion to the treatment influence the prognosis as well.

  • [Title] Pneumoperitoneum does not influence trocar site implantation during tumor manipulation in a solid tumor model.
  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess tumor implantation at abdominal wound sites following manipulation of a solid abdominal tumor.
  • At 2 weeks, an omental tumor was harvested and animals were randomized to bivalve (A), crush (B), strip (C), or excision (D), with or without pneumoperitoneum.
  • Four 5-mm trocars were inserted into the abdomen, and the tumor was reinserted through the midline, swept through four quadrants, and removed.
  • Tumor implantation at wound sites was documented at 7 weeks.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumor implantation at trocar sites is due to spillage of tumor during manipulation and not to pneumoperitoneum.

  • [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.

  • RESULTS: A 5 and 9/12-year-old girl who was initially diagnosed and treated as having CAH and was noncompliant with glucocorticoid therapy presented with weight gain, hypertension, and a mass in the lower abdomen.
  • Computed tomography scan of the abdomen and pelvis showed a cystic mass with a focal enhancing solid component arising from the right ovary, which was subsequently determined to be a steroid cell tumor not otherwise specified.
  • CONCLUSION: Although ovarian steroid cell tumors typically secrete gonadal steroids, the rare steroid cell tumors not otherwise specified can secrete both glucocorticoids and gonadal steroids and are an unusual cause of Cushing syndrome.

  • [Title] Tumor-induced osteomalacia: a case of diagnostic dilemma.
  • Tumor-induced osteomalacia is typically caused by benign mesenchymal tumors of vascular or skeletal origin.
  • Overexpression of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) by these tumors is associated with decreased resorption of phosphate in the renal tubules.
  • Localization and resection of the FGF-23-secreting tumor offers the best chance of cure.
  • Biochemical investigations showed hypophosphatemia, hyperphosphaturia, and increased alkaline phosphatase, suggesting the presence of an FGF-23-secreting tumor.
  • The patient underwent octreotide scintigraphy to localize an alternative site of tumor.
  • This showed focally increased tracer uptake in the neck and in the abdomen.

  • Ovarian low malignant potential tumor account for 10 to 20 percent of ovarian epithelial tumors.
  • Likewise, if they spread outside the ovary, for example, into the abdominal cavity, they do not usually grow into the lining of the abdomen.
  • Guidelines for surgical treatment of borderline ovarian tumors are similar to those for ovarian cancer and include hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  • However, patients with borderline ovarian tumors tend to be younger than women with invasive ovarian cancer.
  • Previous studies have suggested the safety of conservative surgery with unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy or cystectomy for patients with stage I borderline ovarian tumors.
  • Despite infrequent data, this observation has been expanded to include women with advanced-stage disease.

  • These tumors are principally benign, but lead to complications due to their size and localization.
  • Abdominal ultrasound revealed a large polycystic lesion in the right middle and lower abdomen, approximately 12x10x7 cm in size.
  • In MRI, the tumor appeared cystic as well without communication to the intestinal wall.
  • CONCLUSION: Lymphangiomas, especially lymphangiolipomas, are an extremely rare differential diagnosis of intraabdominal cystic tumors.

  • [Title] [Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the anterior rectal wall. R0 resection with simultaneous radical retropubic prostatectomy].
  • This case report deals with a 79-year-old patient with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the anterior rectal wall which was unusually located between the rectum and the prostate gland.
  • These circumstances led to our decision to operate on the tumor via simultaneous radical retropubic prostatectomy.

  • BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyze the presentation of, surgery for, and prognosis of malignant vascular tumors (MVTs).
  • Twenty-four men and 19 women (median age, 55.3 years) were referred for 30 primary tumors and 13 recurrences.
  • Tumors were located in the extremities (n = 16), trunk (n = 3), abdomen (n = 15), retroperitoneum (n = 7), and thyroid gland (n = 2).
  • MVTs of the extremities and trunk and localized disease indicated a better prognosis than abdominal or retroperitoneal MVTs (univariate and multivariate analyses: P = .0122 and P = .0287) and metastasized stages (univariate and multivariate analyses: P = .0187 and P = .0287).
  • Tumor site and stage are important prognostic factors.
  • Surgery is potentially curative, especially for localized disease of the extremities and trunk.

  • Recently these tumors were shown to exhibit a very high density of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptors (GLP-1R) in vitro that may be used as specific targets for in vivo receptor radiolabeling.
  • Whole-body planar images of the abdomen were performed at 20 min, 4 h, 23 h, 96 h, and up to 168 h after injection.
  • After surgical removal of the insulinomas, GLP-1R expression was assessed in the tumor tissue in vitro by GLP-1R autoradiography.
  • By using a gamma-probe intraoperatively, GLP-1R detection permitted a successful surgical removal of the tumors in all patients, diagnosed histopathologically as five pancreatic and one extrapancreatic insulinomas.

  • The group with Stage IIIC disease included 76 patients, and the group with Stage IV disease included 21 patients.
  • Age, tumor grade and histology, and the percentage of patients with ascites were similar in the two groups.
  • The median survival rate was 58 months for patients who had Stage IIIC disease and 30 months for patients who had Stage IV disease (P = 0.016).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although both groups underwent optimal cytoreduction in the abdomen/pelvis and were treated in a similar fashion, the median survival rate of patients with malignant pleural effusions was significantly shorter than the survival of patients without effusions.
  • Many factors that led to or were manifested by pleural effusions, such as undetected bulky residual intrathoracic disease, may have been the cause for this survival difference.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor.
  • Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm which may be found everywhere in the body.
  • Abdominal localizations are quite rare, with 10 cases only reported in bladder; rarely they can be source of paraneoplastic syndromes (i.e., hypoglycemia secondary to insulin-like growth factor).
  • In April 2006 a 74-year-old white male presented with chills, diaphoresis and acute abdominal pain with hematuria.
  • At admission in emergency he underwent an abdominal Xray (no pathological findings) and an ultrasound examination of the kidneys and urinary tract, which revealed a pelvic hyperechogenic neoformation measuring approximately 10×8×7 cm, compressing the bladder.
  • Contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen and pelvic region revealed a large round neoformation dislocating the bladder, with an evident contrast-enhanced periphery and a central necrotic area.
  • The patient underwent complete surgical resection of an ovoidal mass coated by adipose tissue, with well delimited margins; histological findings were consistent with solitary fibrous tumor (SFT).

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • In large GISTs, cystic degeneration, necrosis and focal hemorrhage that occur inside the tumor can result in gastrointestinal bleeding.
  • Gastrointestinal endoscopy, X-ray series and computed tomography of the patient's abdomen revealed a gastric submucosal tumor in the fornix, with a fistula to the gastric lumen that was inundated with a great deal of pus.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIMS AND BACKGROUND: Peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare disease with a universally fatal outcome when managed in a traditional palliative manner.
  • Early recognition of this disease process with an orderly surgical approach will begin to optimize treatment.
  • A Z-score was used to evaluate the incidence of cancer at a particular anatomic site as compared to a general incidence of disease at all sites.
  • CT was analyzed by abdominopelvic anatomic sites (16), abdominopelvic regions (9), and for presence versus absence of disease in the chest.
  • In the analysis of 9 abdominopelvic regions, the central and pelvic regions had Z-scores >2 for large volume disease >5 cm.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma by CT evaluation predominates in tumor mass within the central and pelvic portions of the abdomen.
  • With the use of the Z-score and interpretative small bowel findings a radiologic characterization of this disease for primary radiologic diagnosis is possible.

  • A ventral abdominal subcutaneous mass was removed from each of 2 young adult spayed female ferrets.
  • In both cases, the neoplasms were composed of islands of polygonal cells separated by interlacing streams of spindloid cells reminiscent of ferret adrenocortical tumors with smooth muscle proliferation.
  • In one tumor, vesicular tubular mitochondria were found in polygonal cells.
  • The histologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural findings are suggestive of adrenocortical tumors with smooth muscle proliferation, but cannot be differentiated from an ovarian gonadal stromal tumor.
  • Neither ferret had a clinically detected primary adrenal gland tumor or clinical signs of adrenal-associated endocrinopathy.

  • We report a case of intramural gallbladder hematoma mimicking gallbladder neoplasm in a 33-year-old male; bleeding was confined to the gallbladder wall without rupture into the lumen.
  • The patient presented with sudden onset of right upper quadrant pain, with no history of abdominal trauma.
  • The abdomen was soft, with mild tenderness over the right upper quadrant, and a positive Murphy's sign.
  • Abdominal sonography, computed tomography, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography all revealed the presence of a mass lesion in the gallbladder wall.
  • Thus, a gallbladder tumor was highly suspected.

  • RESULTS: The most common symptoms were right upper quadrant pain (56.3%) and mass in the right upper abdomen (56.3%).
  • 1 patient took transcatheter hepatic arterial chemo-embolization rather than operation because of multifocal tumor.
  • The 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year survival rates of the patients with the tumor size < 5 cm were 100%, 100%, and 75% respectively, all higher than those of the patients with the tumor size > 5 cm, however, not significantly (all P = 0.084).

  • [Title] Second and third malignant solid tumor in a girl with ovarian Sertoli-Leydig tumor.
  • We report a Sertoli-Leydig cell (SLC) tumor of the right ovary in a 10-year-old girl, which was dealt with surgical removal.
  • Three months after resection, she presented with a new episode of acute abdomen because of an abdominal mass, which histologically was compatible with an undifferentiated embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma.
  • The diagnosis was Ewing sarcoma of the humerus, which was confirmed by identification of the typical 11; 22 translocation on cytogenetic and molecular analysis of the tumor tissue.
  • The patient died 14 months from Ewing diagnosis due to progressive disease.

  • [Title] A Case of Clear Cell Sarcoma Occurring on the Abdomen.
  • Clear cell sarcoma is a rare malignant tumor representing about 1% of soft tissue tumors.
  • This slowly progressive tumor tends to recur and results in eventual development of metastatic growth.
  • Early recognition of the disease and prompt wide excision of tumor are essential to get a favorable outcome.
  • We report a rare case of clear cell sarcoma in a 57 year-old female who presented with an erythematous hard nodule on her abdomen.

  • [Title] Burkitt lymphoma: residual abdominal tumor volume after induction therapy correlates with outcome.
  • 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.

  • Close to 80% of patients had advanced disease at presentation.
  • Four (11.8%) patients had recurrence of the tumor, and in every case, recurrence occurred within the first year after operation.
  • Operative blood loss (p = 0.006), degree of differentiation of the tumor (p = 0.011), distance from the anal verge (p = 0.033), and operative stage (p = 0.005) were found to significantly affect the outcome of treatment for the patients who underwent APR.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the advanced disease of our patients, the outcome of management appears to be comparable with results reported from other centers.

  • A 29-year-old female presented with intermittent nausea, vomiting, fevers, abdominal pain and fatigue.
  • CT scans of the abdomen revealed inflammatory changes within the mesentery and small bowel.
  • Over the past 2 years, the patient suffered debilitating paroxysmal abdominal pain despite treatment with prednisone, azathioprine, sulfasalazine and narcotics.
  • The patient has since had a dramatic improvement in her back and abdominal symptoms and has tapered off of prednisone, azathioprine and narcotics.

  • [Transliterated title] Efectele presiunii intra-abdominale asupra funcţiei organelor din abdomen şi torace.
  • 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.

  • Although the ICRU reference point type prescriptions conceptually may be extended for IMRT dose prescriptions and used as a representative of tumor dose, new universally acceptable dose prescription and specification standards for IMRT based on RTOG IMRT prescription model incorporating dose-volume specification would likely lead to greater consistency among treatment centers.

  • We report the case of a 59-year-old woman who came to our observation for the fortuitous finding of elevated serum thyroglobulin (Tg) levels (600-800 ng/mL).
  • Ultrasound examination of the abdomen showed a solid mass of 2 cm in the left ovary.
  • Despite the absence of malignant features, the expression of RET/PTC3 rearrangement was found, raising the possibility of a potential malignant nature of the tumor.
  • A cancer-free period of 3-4 years, as in our patient, is not long enough to definitively exclude a late onset metastatic disease but, unfortunately, the patient died of nonmedical reasons.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The surgical circumferential resection margin in total mesorectal excision surgery is defined by the relationship of the tumor to the mesorectal fascia.
  • Patients with anticipated tumor invasion of the mesorectal fascia receive neoadjuvant therapy to downstage/downsize the tumor and to obtain tumor-free resection margins.Tumor relationship to the mesorectal fascia is accurately determined by MRI.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: During a 2-year period, all patients were enrolled in this study who had biopsy-proven rectal carcinoma and were referred, as a part of the routine preoperative staging workup, for a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis and also an MRI of the pelvis.All examinations were reviewed independently by 2 radiologists who were blinded from one another, from the findings of the other modality, and from clinical information.
  • Both observers were dedicated abdominal radiologists who are experienced in reading pelvic CT and MRI.
  • Categorical agreement between MRI and multidetector-row CT for all the evaluated parameters of the tumor position, mesorectal fascia, and lymph nodes, as well as the interobserver agreement between CT and MRI, was determined by the intraclass correlation weighted kappa statistic to measure the data set's consistency.
  • RESULTS: Among the study's 92 patients, the tumor characteristics suggested by multidetector-row CT agreed with those of MRI, with a weighted kappa ranging from 0.488 to 0.748 for the first reader and 0.577 to 0.800 for the second reader.
  • Agreement regarding measurement of the distance from the tumor to the mesorectal fascia was 0.425 for the first reader and 0.723 for the second reader, with interobserver agreement of 0.766.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of this study differ from previously published data by demonstrating substantial agreement between readers in multidetector-row CT assessment of the tumor, mesorectal fascia, and lymph nodes.

  • [Title] Gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the jejunum and ileum: a clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular genetic study of 906 cases before imatinib with long-term follow-up.
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) stromal tumors (GISTs), the specific KIT- or PDFGRA-signaling driven mesenchymal tumors, are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the GI tract.
  • This study analyzed 1091 tumors originally classified as smooth muscle tumors of the small intestine (including jejunum or ileum and excluding duodenum), and found that 906 (83%) of these were GISTs.
  • Only 0.6% of tumors occurred before the age of 21 years and 13.6% before the age of 40 years.
  • The tumors varied from 0.3 to 40 cm (median, 7.0 cm) and most commonly presented with GI bleeding or acute abdomen; 18% were incidentally detected.
  • Histologically, the tumors were relatively monotypic with spindle cell (86%), epithelioid (5%), or mixed patterns (9%).
  • Most epithelioid tumors were malignant, and this morphology sometimes emerged from less cellular and less mitotically active spindle cell tumors, suggesting that it represented a transformation.
  • KIT was immunohistochemically detected in 98%, CD34 in 40%, smooth muscle actin in 34%, desmin in 0.2%, and S-100 protein in 14% of the tumors tested.
  • Outcome was strongly dependent on tumor size and mitotic activity, with an overall 39% tumor-related mortality, twice that for gastric GISTs.
  • Only <3% of tumors <5 cm and < or = 5 mitoses/50 HPF metastasized, whereas 86% of tumors >10 cm and >5 mitoses/50 HPF metastasized.
  • In stark contrast to corresponding gastric tumors, tumors >10 cm with mitotic activity < or = 5/50 HPF and those < or = 5 cm with mitoses >5/50 HPF had a high metastatic rate (>50%); tumors >5 cm < or = 10 cm with low mitotic rate had a 24% metastatic rate.
  • The median survival times of patients with low mitotic rate tumors who died of disease decreased by increasing tumor size.

  • Herein is a report of a patient with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) possibly arising from greater omentum accompanying diffuse peritoneal disseminatation.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) revealed that 18F-FDG uptake was widely spreading in the abdomen.
  • In this case, the PET image was more useful than computed tomography (CT) for understanding tumor distribution rather.
  • PET provides important information on tumor distribution and has an impact on evaluating clinical stage in GIST patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence of pulmonary metastases detected on thoracic computed tomography in patients with rectal cancer and assess the association between the incidence of pulmonary metastases and the stage of the rectal tumor.
  • These patients had local tumor staging with a pelvic magnetic resonance imaging and staging computed tomographic scan of the chest and upper abdomen immediately after the magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Of the 56 patients, there were 3 patients with stage T1, 24 with T2, 26 with T3, and 3 with stage T4 tumors.
  • Of these 10 patients, 1 had a stage T2 tumor, 7 had T3, and 2 had stage T4 tumors.
  • Statistical analysis using exact logistic regression showed the odds of getting lung metastases is an increasing function of tumor grade.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery with limited or extended peritonectomy associated with intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemoperfusion (IHCP) has been proposed for treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) from abdominal neoplasms.
  • METHODS: Fifty-nine patients with PC from abdominal neoplasms underwent 61 treatments using this technique from January 2000 to August 2005.
  • In 16 patients with positive peritoneal cytology without macroscopic peritoneal disease, IHCP was performed in order to prevent peritoneal recurrence.
  • IHCP was carried out throughout the abdominopelvic cavity for 60 minutes using a closed abdomen technique.
  • Intra-abdominal temperature ranged between 41 degrees C and 43 degrees C; mitomycin C (25 mg/mq) and cisplatin (100 mg/mq) were the anticancer drugs generally used, and they were administered with a flow rate of 700-800 ml/minute.
  • Tumor residual and advanced age significantly increase the risk of morbidity after this procedure.

  • 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.

  • Ultrasonography of the abdomen revealed a well-delineated round mass in the middle bile duct.
  • However, since 1 week after insertion of a non-covered stent, contrast radiography showed tumor protrusion (rapid obstruction) in the stent, and a covered stent was placed in the stent.
  • In patients for whom surgery is impossible for reasons other than tumor factors, internal fistula construction using a metallic stent, which neither impairs QOL nor shorten survival, can be indicated.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: There were no significant differences in tumor pathologic types, tumor staging and surgical approaches(P> 0.05),but there were significant differences in clinical symptoms and coexistent diseases between two groups(P< 0.01).
  • Patients over 70 years had main clinical symptom of dysphagia in 64% ,coexistent heart and lung disease in 63% and 73% ,respectively; anaemia and hypoproteinemia in 63% and 34% ,respectively.
  • Total gastrectomy via abdomen was performed in 78% and 73% of two groups respectively (P> 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Total gastrectomy via abdomen is a safe approach for advanced cardiac cancer patients older than 70 years.

  • [Title] Consideration of the role of radiotherapy for abdominal lymph node metastases in patients with recurrent gastric cancer.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome of external beam radiotherapy for abdominal lymph node (LN) metastases in patients with recurrent gastric cancer.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: The clinical data of 79 patients with abdominal LN metastases developing after curative resection of gastric tumor were retrospectively analyzed.
  • Multivariate analysis showed that the relative risk of death in the radiation group from the time of diagnosis of LN metastases was 0.253 (p < 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Abdominal LN metastases from gastric cancer are sensitive to radiation.
