2. Papagelopoulos PJ, Mavrogenis AF, Mitsiokapa EA, Papaparaskeva KT, Galanis EC, Soucacos PN: Current trends in the management of extra-abdominal desmoid tumours. World J Surg Oncol; 2006;4:21

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Current trends in the management of extra-abdominal desmoid tumours.
  • Extra-abdominal desmoid tumours are slow-growing, histologically benign tumours of fibroblastic origin with variable biologic behaviour.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging is the modality of choice for the diagnosis and the evaluation of the tumours.
  • Wide margin surgical resection remains the main treatment modality for local control of the tumour.
  • Chemotherapy may be used for recurrent or unresectable disease.
  • Overall local recurrence rates vary and depend on patient's age, tumour location and margins at resection.

  • [Title] Intra-abdominal desmoid tumor following retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testicular germ cell tumor.
  • In the testicular cancer post-treatment setting a rapidly growing retroperitoneal mass leads to a differential diagnosis including recurrent germ cell tumor, residual mature teratoma, or sarcomatoid degeneration.
  • We report the case of a 27-year-old man with a large abdominal mass occurring in the setting of a mixed germ cell tumor after radical orchiectomy with primary chemotherapy followed by retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
  • Surgical excision of this mass followed by pathological review revealed an intra-abdominal desmoid tumor.
  • Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for isochromosome 12p failed to demonstrate a germ cell tumor origin.
  • This is the fourth such case of an intra-abdominal desmoid tumor after retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testicular cancer in the urologic literature.
  • This case highlights the need for careful consideration of a desmoid tumor when a rapidly growing spindle cell tumor is encountered in a post-treatment testis cancer patient.

  • When he was 39 years old, he developed three synchronous jejunal adenocarcinomas and a mesenteric desmoid tumor.
  • Similar to patients with familial adenomatous polyposis, desmoid tumors also may be part of the clinical spectrum of MYH-associated polyposis and may prove to be a significant clinical problem in patients submitted to prophylactic colectomy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Full-term gestation and transvaginal delivery after wide resection of an abdominal desmoid tumor during pregnancy.
  • A 29-year-old female was diagnosed with a symptomatic, extra-abdominal desmoid tumor during the first trimester of pregnancy.
  • Preoperative diagnosis was confirmed by core-needle biopsy of the lesion.
  • At 20-weeks gestation, wide local resection of the tumor with disease-free margins, as well as abdominal wall reconstruction with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) mesh was successfully undertaken.
  • Histological examination of the tumor ex vivo confirmed that the lesion was a desmoid tumor consisting of spindle cells with dense infiltrating collagenous fibers.
  • This case illustrates the probable contribution of estrogens towards desmoid tumor development, the durability of abdominal wall reconstruction when subjected to the extraordinary strain of both a gravid uterus and labor, as well as the safety and efficacy of aggressive surgical therapy during pregnancy.

  • [Title] Staging intra-abdominal desmoid tumors in familial adenomatous polyposis: a search for a uniform approach to a troubling disease.
  • INTRODUCTION: Desmoid tumors are a clinical problem in 12 to 15 percent of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • There is no predictably effective treatment for intra-abdominal desmoid tumors, which sometimes cause significant complications by their effects on the ureters or bowel.
  • The relative rarity and the clinical heterogeneity of intra-abdominal desmoid tumors make randomized studies difficult to do.
  • METHODS: Intra-abdominal desmoid tumors can be staged according to their size, clinical presentation and growth pattern.
  • CONCLUSION: A way of staging intra-abdominal desmoid tumors is proposed to facilitate stratification by disease severity during collaborative studies of various treatments.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] An unusual case of extra-abdominal desmoid tumour.
  • Desmoid tumour is relatively rare and generally non-metastatisizing lesion of mesenchymal origin composed of fibrous tissue and fitting in the group of aggressive fibromatosis; it is a locally aggressive proliferative soft-tissue lesion with controversial nature.
  • This tumour accounts for 0.03% of all tumours and 3% of soft-tissue tumours with annual incidence of two to four cases per million.
  • Although desmoid tumours are more common in persons aged 10-40 years than in others, they do occur in young children and older adults; in children the sex incidence is equal.
  • This is a rare case of extra-abdominal desmoid tumour in a 14-year-old girl affected by spastic tetraparesis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We examined outcomes of patients with desmoid tumors receiving systemic therapy at a single institution, to provide a basis for examination of newer agents.
  • Retrospective chart review of 682 patients with desmoid tumors (1982-2006) from a prospectively collected sarcoma database.
  • Patients without measurable disease, those receiving therapy we could not document, and those receiving prophylactic therapy were excluded.
  • Nine patients died, 7 of progressive disease/surgical complications, and two with Gardner syndrome-related malignancies.
  • Intra-abdominal primary location was most common (29/70=41%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anthracycline-containing regimens, hormonal therapy, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors have modest activity against desmoid tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Intra-abdominal desmoid tumors: rare but important disease].
  • Desmoid tumors are rare benign neoplasms with high tendency to local recurrence, and they can be divided into extra- and intra-abdominal types (mesenteric fibromatosis).
  • Six patients (3 men and 3 women) affected by extra-abdominal desmoid tumors have been treated with radical excision.
  • In two patients desmoid was intra-abdominal:.
  • 1) a 55 years old man admitted for acute abdomen and submitted, in emergency, to a laparotomy with excision of a mesenteric abscess including a jejunal loop at about one meter from Treitz;.
  • 2) 52 years old man, submitted to an elective excision of a capsulated neoplasm of the little omentum, which had caused an oppressive abdominal pain.
  • In both cases the hystological diagnosis has been desmoid tumor.
  • Surgical treatment of desmoid tumors must aim at radical excision to avoid frequent recurrences (25-65%); these have stimulated the research of other kinds of treatments, since a new surgical operation itself can lead to a further recurrence.
  • Radiotherapy has been investigated with results in 79-96% of cases, antiestrogenic therapy has been used with success in 51% of patients, and high dose tamoxifen seemed to obtain a stable disease in non operable cases.
  • Conclusive results on the efficacy of these treatments have not been obtained yet, because of the rarity of the desmoid tumors even in greater Centres.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Early experience with percutaneous cryoablation of extra-abdominal desmoid tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: Surgical resection, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are all accepted as standard treatments for extra-abdominal desmoid (EAD) tumors, but their effectiveness has been limited by frequent local recurrence.
  • The purpose of this article is to describe our early experiences with using percutaneous cryoablation for local control of extra-abdominal desmoid tumors in five patients whose tumors had failed to respond to standard therapy.
  • Three of these patients had been referred for cryoablation for local tumor control, and two had been referred for palliation of inoperable tumors.
  • RESULTS: For the three patients referred for local control of EAD tumors, complete tumor coverage with the ablation zones was achieved.
  • The third patient, with a 6.1 cm mass, reported improved mild pain at 6 months, and imaging showed a moderate decrease of tumor size.
  • For the two patients referred for palliative therapy, initial partial pain relief was felt 2 weeks after the procedure, At long-term (58 months) follow-up of one patient with a 9.1 cm mass, the tumor was still present although reduced in size, and local pain had returned to its former moderate level.

  • We report a unique case of a huge recurrent abdominal DT (36 cm in diameter, 25 kg in weight) that caused pressure necrosis and sloughing of the overlying anterior abdominal wall, and produced a large fungating mass protruding outside the abdomen.
  • Although preoperative neoadjuvant therapies were all ineffective, radical surgical removal of the tumour was successful.
  • The procedure was followed by an excellent clinical recovery and the patient is still alive with no evidence of recurrent disease after a 6-year follow-up.

  • [Title] Diagnostic problems of abdominal desmoid tumors in various locations.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal desmoid tumor is one of the forms of deep (musculoaponeurotic) fibromatosis.
  • It occurs more often as a desmoid tumor in the abdominal wall, less often in various intra-abdominal locations.
  • In this work, we performed retrospective study concerning diagnostic problems of this disease with the use of imaging techniques.
  • RESULTS: The findings were typical only in the case with the lesion located in the abdominal wall, three described cases of the intra-abdominal desmoid provided a broad range of differentially diagnostic possibilities (metastases, GIT tumors, lymphomas, etc.).
  • In particular, the findings in infiltrative processes in intra-abdominal location and retroperitoneal involvement were less typical.
  • CONCLUSION: The possibility of the occurrence of intra-abdominal desmoid tumor must be considered particularly in younger individuals with rapidly growing tumorous process, which does not immediately arise from the surrounding organs (digestive tract, internal genitalia, etc.
  • ), and is located in the abdominal wall or in the abdominal cavity.

  • [Title] The role of imatinib mesylate in adjuvant therapy of extra-abdominal desmoid tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Extra-abdominal desmoid tumors are rare neoplasms with variable biological behavior.
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the possible presence of tyrosine-kinase receptors in extra-abdominal desmoid tumors as a marker for imatinib mesylate therapy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: From 1999 to 2004, immunohistochemical methods were carried-out in 14 patients with histologically confirmed extra-abdominal desmoid tumors to determine c-KIT positivity (existence of tyrosine-kinase receptors and PDGFRA and PDGFRB).
  • RESULTS: All desmoid tumors were c-KIT negative, which demonstrates absence of tyrosine-kinase receptors.
  • CONCLUSION: The histological c-KIT markup is an easy and reliable method that can detect whether a desmoid tumor is sensitive to additional treatment with a tyrosine-kinase receptor inhibitor.

  • Desmoid tumors are rare, benign, fibromatous lesions that are the result of abnormal proliferation of myofibroblasts.
  • Desmoid tumors can be classified as extra-abdominal and abdominal.
  • Abdominal desmoid tumors are either superficial or intraabdominal.
  • These tumors are associated with a high recurrence rates, even if their microscopic characters indicate a benign disease; their biologic behavior often indicates rather a "malignant" disease, which can cause even the death.
  • Intraabdominal desmoid tumors can engulf surrounding viscera and vessels, thereby greatly complicating their surgical treatment.

  • OBJECTIVES: We investigated treatment results and the role of potential prognostic factors in patients treated by surgery with or without adjuvant radiotherapy for primary or recurrent extra-abdominal desmoid tumors.
  • METHODS: The study included 38 patients (23 females, 15 males; mean age 24 years; range 5 to 61 years) who underwent surgical treatment for extra-abdominal desmoid tumors.
  • The mean disease-free survival was 38+/-8 months, and eight-year disease-free survival was 35.7+/-8.5%.
  • Disease-free survival did not differ significantly between patients receiving adjuvant radiotherapy (47.9+/-7.9 months) and those treated with surgery alone (37.9+/-12.4 months), and between patients who developed a recurrence at the resection site (12.1+/-4.7 months) or at a different site (24.3+/-1.0 months) (p>0.05).
  • None of the potential prognostic factors including gender, age, localization, surgical margin, or adjuvant irradiation were found to affect disease-free survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Surgery for sporadic abdominal desmoid tumor: is low/no recurrence an achievable goal?
  • BACKGROUND: Sporadic abdominal desmoid tumors are rare and data on these tumors as a distinct disease entity are lacking.
  • Previous abdominal surgery, trauma, pregnancy and estrogen intake are considered risk factors.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate outcomes of surgery for this rare disease.
  • METHODS: Since 1995, 16 patients with pathologically confirmed desmoid tumor were operated on in our center.
  • All patients presented with an isolated mass; 7 (50%) originated in the abdominal wall, 6 (37.5%) were retroperitoneal and 3 were (18.8%) mesenteric.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The perception of sporadic abdominal desmoids as tumors with a high recurrence rate (20-70%) is probably incorrect.

  • [Title] Gardner's syndrome in a 40-year-old woman: successful treatment of locally aggressive desmoid tumors with cytotoxic chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumors that present as a part of Gardener's syndrome can present very difficult management problems.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of intra-abdominal desmoid tumor causing distal small bowel obstruction that complicated the management of a more proximal enterocutaneous fistula from the jejunum.
  • After failure of more conventional management options including imatinib, the patient's disease responded to doxorubicin and ifosfamide.
  • CONCLUSION: Systemic cytotoxic therapy with doxorubicin and ifosfamide can be useful for patients with complications from intra-abdominal desmoid tumor.

  • [Title] Uptake characteristics of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in deep fibromatosis and abdominal desmoids: potential clinical role of FDG-PET in the management.
  • In this preliminary report, we explore the uptake pattern of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) in fibromatosis and hypothesize the potential clinical role of FDG-positron emission tomography (PET) in the management of this benign but locally aggressive heterogeneous group of soft-tissue tumours.
  • Five patients were studied (two men and three women, age range 23-35 years), among whom were three cases of deep musculoskeletal fibromatosis, one of abdominal fibromatosis (abdominal desmoid) associated with familial adenomatous polyposis (Gardner's syndrome) and one case of both deep musculoskeletal fibromatosis and abdominal desmoid.
  • The maximum standardized uptake value (SUV(max)) observed was up to 4.7; the avidity probably related to the biological aggressiveness and tendency for recurrence, characteristic of fibromatosis.
  • Hence, a baseline FDG-PET can serve a valuable role in monitoring the effect of systemic pharmacotherapy in patients with recurrent progressive disease after unsuccessful local-regional treatment.
  • The findings in this report can be extrapolated and have implications for studying the utility of FDG-PET in defining aggressiveness, guiding biopsy and defining excision site in a large tumour and in monitoring therapy in fibromatosis.

  • Desmoid tumours are rare, poorly circumscribed tumours that have a firm consistency and, although benign, have a remarkable tendency to infiltrate into surrounding structures.
  • Extra-abdominal desmoid tumours involve mainly the extremities or the chest wall and are usually managed by wide radical resection.
  • Moreover, desmoid tumours involving the chest wall are locally aggressive tumours with a high recurrence rate.
  • We report a case of a pathologically proven desmoid tumour of the chest wall in a patient with a history of bilateral breast cancer and oesophageal cancer.
  • We discuss the imaging appearances of this tumour on positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) and magnetic resonance imaging.

  • They occur in association with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), but they may also occur in the post-traumatic peri-partum or post-abdominal surgery setting, and a few present spontaneously.
  • We describe a 50 year old male not known to have Crohn's disease and without FAP who presented with multiple desmoids.
  • Investigation of post-operative diarrhea confirmed a diagnosis of Crohn's disease.
  • This is the first report of a male patient, who had never undergone prior abdominal surgery, presenting with Crohn's disease and abdominal desmoid tumors.
  • The reasons why Crohn's disease and desmoids may be associated are explored, focusing particularly on alternations in the fibrogenic cytokine TGF-β now known to be involved in the pathogenesis of both diseases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mesenteric fibromatosis masquerading as an ovarian neoplasm twenty years after Chernobyl radiation exposure.
  • BACKGROUND: Since their initial description in 1832, desmoid tumors have been reported to occur in virtually every part of the body.
  • Intra-abdominal desmoid tumors, or mesenteric fibromatosis, are often associated with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis mutation in a syndrome known as Gardner's Syndrome.
  • Although sporadic cases of desmoid tumors do occur, unlike Gardner's Syndrome, they predominantly occur extra-abdominally.
  • CASE: Case report of a 61-year-old female who presented with two months of abdominal pain, progressive lower abdominal distension and a 10-15 pound weight gain accompanied by one week of urinary hesitancy and frequency.
  • Patient underwent a diagnostic workup for an ovarian neoplasm, but was found at surgery to have mesentric fibromatosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Although uncommon, mesentric fibromatosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis when evaluating a patient with an abdominal mass of unknown origin.

  • [Title] Desmoid tumor of the tongue.
  • Desmoid tumors are rare neoplasms accounting for 0.03% of all neoplasms and have an estimated incidence of 2 to 4 per million per year.
  • World Health Organization currently refers to all of the deep types of fibromatosis as desmoid-type of fibromatoses.
  • The term "desmoid" refers to the hard, tendon-like appearance of the tumor.
  • About fifty percent of desmoid tumors arise in the abdominal region.
  • The extra-abdominal desmoid tumors present a difficult problem in recognition and management especially because of the striking discrepancy between its deceptively harmless microscopic appearance and its potential to attain a large size, to recur, and to infiltrate neighboring tissues in the manner of a fibrosarcoma.
  • Desmoid tumors are very rare in the oral cavity with less than 5% of cases constituting oral soft tissue fibromatosis.
  • A 22-year old mentally retarded female patient with desmoid tumor occurring in the tongue is presented here.

  • [Title] [A case of desmoid tumor presenting as intra-abdominal abscess].
  • Desmoid tumor is a rare benign tumor derived from fibrous sheath or musculoaponeurotic structure.
  • The tumor is benign histologically but considered as malignant clinically because it has high propensity on infiltrative growth with local invasion and tendency to recurrence after local excision.
  • Especially, when this tumor happens to be in the intra-abdomen, the prognosis is worse because it can cause intestinal obstruction, ureter obstruction and, fistula formation.
  • It also can invade major vessels in abdomen.
  • This tumor occurs more frequently in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), in post-partume women, and at old surgical incision site.
  • We report a rare case of the young male patient who presented with an acute abdomen and underwent laparotomy and was found to have an intra-abdominal desmoid tumor with abscess formation.

  • [Title] Giant recurrent fibromatosis of the breast: a case report. Clinical features and implications for treatment.
  • Fibromatosis of the breast is a benign but locally aggressive neoplasm, which has been described under various names including extra-abdominal desmoid tumour and aggressive fibromatosis.
  • Clinically and radiologically the lesion mimics breast cancer and the definitive diagnosis is provided by histology.
  • A high risk of local recurrence is a characteristic of this disease.
  • Radical excision of the tumour with clear histological margins decreases the likelihood of recurrence.
  • The possible association between breast implants and mammary fibromatosis has been reported.
  • In this study we report a case of giant fibromatosis of the breast observed in a young patient and its extensive recurrence, involving all quadrants of the breast, the pectoralis major muscle, the rectus abdominis muscle sheath and the costal layer.
  • The main clinical and pathological characteristics of this rare disease are illustrated, emphasizing the difficulties encountered both in the diagnosis of the primary lesion and in the management of its giant recurrence, particularly as regards the possibility of obtaining a radical surgical excision and the option of performing breast reconstruction.

  • The aims of this study were to analyze the cadherin/catenin adhesion complex in cells from abdominal and extra-abdominal aggressive fibromatosis tumors, and to estimate the correlation between the expression of the tested proteins and the clinical data of the desmoid patients.
  • Immunohistochemistry was used to examine the expression of the cadherin/catenin adhesion complex: APC protein, alpha-, beta-catenin, and N-cadherin in archival material derived from 15 cases of extra-abdominal desmoid tumor (E-AD) and 20 cases of abdominal (AD) desmoid tumor.
  • In the groups investigated, no statistically significant correlation was found between alpha-catenin, beta-catenin (c), (n) and (c+n) expression, and tumor size (p>0.1).
  • The results regarding beta-catenin expression obtained in our study confirm the previous findings that nuclear accumulation of this protein plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of aggressive fibromatosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Recurrence potential of diffuse-type giant cell tumor in the foot: radiologic and pathologic features.
  • BACKGROUND: Aggressive musculoskeletal tumors in the foot, such as diffuse-type giant cell tumors or extra-abdominal desmoid tumors, are difficult to treat because the foot does not have enough soft tissue to allow wide tumor resection.
  • We reviewed the clinical behavior of diffuse-type giant cell tumor in the foot and evaluated the recurrence potential of these tumors from radiologic and pathologic perspectives.
  • Radiologic studies, including sonography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and bone and gallium citrate scintigraphy, were obtained followed by surgical treatment and histologic evaluation of the tumor.
  • Histologically, the necrotic area and mitotic activity were more apparent in recurrent than in the nonrecurrent tumors, and tumor cell dyscohesion was noted in the former, (the intercellular space was increased).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Repeated recurrence with tumor invasion into tarsal bone resulted in breakage of the tarsal arch that supports the body's weight.
  • Amputation would be necessary for patients in whom the disease had progressed to obtain local cure and relief of pain.
  • In the present study, we found two features of the recurrence potential of diffuse-type giant cell tumors: sparse cell to cell contact on pathologic examination and positive accumulation in the tumor on gallium citrate scintigraphy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A 10-year review of surgery for desmoid disease associated with familial adenomatous polyposis.
  • BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumours affect 10-25 per cent of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis and represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality.
  • Surgery for intra-abdominal desmoids has traditionally been used as a last resort or to manage obstructive complications.
  • The aim was to review 10 years of desmoid surgery in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis from a single centre.
  • METHODS: Patients who had surgery for desmoid disease between 1994 and 2004 were identified from the Polyposis Registry database and their hospital notes reviewed.
  • RESULTS: Twenty patients had surgery to remove 32 desmoid tumours (16 intra-abdominal, 12 abdominal wall, four extra-abdominal).
  • Intra-abdominal desmoid resection was associated with a mean resection of 45.55 (range 10-200) cm of small bowel.
  • During this period, one patient died (metastatic duodenal cancer); there was no mortality from desmoid disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Surgery for intra-abdominal desmoids in selected patients is less hazardous than previously reported.
  • Surgery for abdominal wall and extra-abdominal tumours is safe.
  • However, disease recurrence remains a major problem.

  • [Title] Correlation between beta-catenin widespread nuclear expression and matrix metalloproteinase-7 overexpression in sporadic desmoid tumors.
  • Desmoid tumors (desmoid-type fibromatoses) are locally aggressive soft tissue tumors associated with the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway (APC-beta-catenin-Tcf pathway).
  • Matrix metalloproteinase-7, which is one of the target genes of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway, has been reported to play an important role in tumor progression.
  • We examined the immunohistochemical expression of beta-catenin and matrix metalloproteinase-7 in 72 samples (63 primary and 9 recurrent samples, 63 patients) of sporadic desmoid tumors without familial adenomatous polyposis, and the genetic alteration of the beta-catenin gene in 33 frozen materials (22 primary and 11 recurrent samples, 22 patients).
  • Immunohistochemically, there was a statistically significant correlation between widespread nuclear expression of beta-catenin and overexpression of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (P < .01 in extra-abdominal desmoid, Fisher test).
  • Our results suggest that the matrix metalloproteinase-7 gene may be up-regulated by mutated or continuously elevated beta-catenin protein and that the matrix metalloproteinase-7 gene may also be targeted in the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway in sporadic desmoid tumors.

  • [Title] Ureteric obstruction in familial adenomatous polyposis-associated desmoid disease.
  • PURPOSE: Intra-abdominal desmoid disease is the second leading cause of death in familial adenomatous polyposis patients.
  • The aim of this study was to identify the incidence, management, and outcomes for familial adenomatous polyposis associated intra-abdominal desmoids causing ureteric obstruction.
  • RESULTS: Of 107 patients identified with familial adenomatous polyposis related desmoid disease, 30 (28%) had documented CT scan evidence of ureteric obstruction.
  • Preceding surgery was the most prominent risk factor for development of desmoid disease (28 of 30 patients); 2 patients were diagnosed with desmoids before abdominal surgery.
  • Overall, 11 patients had ureteric obstruction at the time of diagnosis.
  • In the other 19 patients, median time from desmoid diagnosis to ureteric obstruction was 2 years.
  • One-third of patients required more than one urologic procedure, and 63% had extensive small-bowel involvement with desmoid.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The majority of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis associated desmoid disease who develop hydronephrosis require stenting.
  • Physicians treating patients with familial adenomatous polyposis and desmoid disease must be aware of the potential for development of ureteric obstruction and available treatment options.

  • [Title] A desmoid tumor-staging system separates patients with intra-abdominal, familial adenomatous polyposis-associated desmoid disease by behavior and prognosis.
  • PURPOSE: Intra-abdominal desmoid tumors associated with familial adenomatous polyposis are heterogeneous.
  • Eight patients with Stage I disease received medical treatment, as did 26 with Stage II, 16 with Stage III, and 15 with Stage IV.
  • Chemotherapy was given to 1 Stage II tumor, 7 Stage III, and 5 Stage IV.
  • No patient with Stages I or II disease died.
  • Finally 89 percent with Stage I, 65 percent with Stage II, 59 percent with Stage III, and 50 percent with Stage IV disease were asymptomatic; 81 percent of Stage I desmoids, 78 percent of Stage II, 42 percent of Stage III, and 28 percent of Stage IV were stable or disappeared.
  • CONCLUSION: Desmoid staging identifies tumors by prognosis and its use for designing prospective treatment studies is reasonable.

  • [Title] Desmoid-type fibromatoses involving the brachial plexus: treatment options and assessment of c-KIT mutational status.
  • OBJECT: Desmoid-type fibromatoses are a locally invasive soft-tissue lesion that is most commonly encountered in abdominal sites.
  • The tumor also affects head and neck areas, particularly the supraclavicular region, where it may encase and distort the brachial plexus and compromise neurovascular structures.
  • Neurosurgeons may be called on to treat desmoid-type fibromatoses in these sites.
  • The authors describe their experience in treating four patients with desmoid-type fibromatoses involving the brachial plexus and report the results of immunohistochemical analysis of the tumors.
  • Intraoperative identification of the site of tumor origin from musculoaponeurotic tissues by the neurosurgeon was necessary in two of the four cases to achieve a correct frozen section or final pathological diagnosis.
  • Immunostaining for c-KIT (CD117) was undertaken in all cases in light of a previous report of positive CD117 immunoreactivity in abdominal desmoid-type fibromatoses.
  • With the combination of surgery and radiation therapy, local disease control was achieved in three of the four patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This represents the first report of c-KIT sequencing in desmoid-type fibromatoses and suggests a possible biological basis for continuing to explore the use of adjuvant imatinib mesylate therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Does early colectomy increase desmoid risk in familial adenomatous polyposis?
  • BACKGROUND & AIMS: Desmoid tumors are non-metastasizing fibromatoses that occur in 10%-20% of subjects with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).
  • Intra-abdominal desmoid tumors are a major cause of mortality in FAP.
  • FAP-associated desmoid tumors are linked to trauma, particularly abdominal surgery, family history of desmoids, hormonal factors, and the location of the APC mutation.
  • The aim of this study was to determine whether colectomy earlier in life is a risk factor for the development of desmoid tumors.
  • METHODS: An analysis was made of the association between development of desmoid and age at colectomy, family history of desmoids, gender, and APC mutation in FAP patients in the Registry (1980-2005) at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
  • Desmoid prevalence was 14% (n = 121).
  • Female patients who had an early colectomy were more than 2 times more likely to develop a desmoid, compared with women who had a colectomy at >18 years (P = .01).
  • Early colectomy did not increase risk of developing a desmoid in male patients (P = .42).
  • Patients with a mutation after codon 1399 were found to have 4 times greater chance of developing a desmoid.
  • Female patients who had an early colectomy are at significantly greater risk of developing a desmoid compared with female patients who had a colectomy in adulthood.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The use of tensor fascia lata pedicled flap in reconstructing full thickness abdominal wall defects and groin defects following tumor ablation.
  • As a pedicled flap its reach to the lower abdomen and groin made it an attractive option for reconstructing soft tissue defects after tumor ablation.
  • Also, the adequacy of the fascia lata as a sole substitute for abdominal wall muscles has been disputable.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: From April 2001 to April 2004, 12 pedicled TFL flaps were used to reconstruct 5 central abdominal wall full thickness defects and 6 groin soft tissue defects following tumor resection.
  • In one case, bilateral flaps were used to reconstruct a large central abdominal wall defect.
  • From the abdominal wall defects group, all repairs were enforced primarily with a prolene mesh except for one patient who was the first in this study.
  • Patients presenting with groin defects required coverage of exposed vessels following tumor resection.
  • RESULTS: The resulting soft tissue defects in this study were due to resection of 4 abdominal wall desmoid tumors, a colonic carcinoma infiltrating the abdominal wall, 4 primary groin soft tissue sarcomas, a metastatic SCC of the leg to groin nodes, and a primary SCC of the groin.
  • Three of those cases developed in flaps reconstructing abdominal wall defects, and one case developed in a flap used to cover a groin defect.
  • Out of the 5 cases that underwent abdominal wall reconstruction, one case developed ventral hernia, in which bilateral TFL flaps were used without mesh enforcement.
  • Only one patient died of distant metastasis of a SCC of the groin skin, 8 months postoperatively and another 2 patients with abdominal desmoid tumors developed local recurrence.
  • A pedicled flap would be appropriate for lower abdominal wall defects, and is better islanded to achieve extra mobilization and allow a tension free closure, while for groin defects, simple flap transposition should be enough.
  • Nevertheless, reconstruction for full thickness abdominal wall defects by this flap is a static reconstruction.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Regression of sporadic intra-abdominal desmoid tumour following administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
  • BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumours or fibromatoses are rare entities characterized by the benign proliferation of fibroblasts, which can be life-threatening due to their locally aggressive properties.
  • Surgery is widely accepted as the first line of treatment for extra-abdominal desmoids; however, it is not recommended for intra-abdominal desmoids because of the high-risk of recurrence and difficulties with the operation.
  • Here, we report on a patient with sporadic intra-abdominal desmoid tumours, who showed partial response following the intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Computed tomography showed an abnormal multilocular soft-tissue mass (95 x 70 mm) in the right pelvis, which was revealed by biopsy to be a desmoid tumour.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis showed that the tumour cells expressed vimentin, but not smooth-muscle actin, CD34, or desmin.
  • Two years after the commencement of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug administration, computed tomography showed a decrease in tumour size (63 x 49 mm), and the disappearance of intratumoural septa.
  • CONCLUSION: Our case report suggests that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug treatment should be taken into consideration for use as first-line treatment in patients with sporadic intra-abdominal desmoid tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Multimodality treatment of mesenteric desmoid tumours.
  • BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumours are rare neoplasms characterised by clonal proliferation of myofibroblasts that do not metastasise, but often exhibit an infiltrative pattern and functional impairment.
  • A multidisciplinary treatment plan was developed based on primary disease extent, tumour behaviour and resectability.
  • Patients with stable but unresectable disease were observed without treatment.
  • Patients with resectable disease underwent surgery, and patients with unresectable progressing disease received chemotherapy, most commonly liposomal doxorubicin, followed by surgery if chemotherapy rendered the disease resectable.
  • RESULTS: At a median follow-up of 50.0 months (range 4.6-212), 50 patients (96%) have either no recurrence or radiographically stable disease.
  • CONCLUSION: These data indicate that the extent of disease; tumour behaviour and resectability are the important factors when defining a treatment plan for mesenteric desmoid tumours.
  • A multidisciplinary approach of surgery combined with chemotherapy is an effective and function-sparing strategy for managing this disease.

  • [Title] Desmoid tumours in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis and desmoid region adenomatous polyposis coli mutations.
  • BACKGROUND: :The aim of this study was to determine the proportion of patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) who had mutations in the desmoid region of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene that phenotypically expresses desmoid disease, and to determine the role for surgery in these patients.
  • RESULTS: Of 363 patients with FAP, 47 from ten families had APC mutations in the desmoid region 3' to codon 1399.
  • Of 22 patients undergoing surgery, 16 developed desmoids, and of these 12 had mesenteric desmoid disease.
  • Complications from mesenteric desmoids were death (two patients), enterectomy (three), local resection (three), fistula (one), cholangitis and local resection (one), bowel obstruction (one) and bowel and ureteric obstruction (one).
  • CONCLUSION: In individuals with 3' APC mutations, abdominal surgery is associated with a 65 per cent risk of developing mesenteric desmoids.

  • [Title] Simultaneous Colonic Obstruction and Hydroureteronephrosis due to Mesenteric Fibromatosis.
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis (MF) is a rare benign mesenchymal lesion that can occur throughout the gastrointestinal tract, especially small bowel.
  • We described a patient that presented with colonic obstruction and hydroureteronephrosis due to MF at sigmoid colon which mimicked submucosal tumor such as gastrointestinal tumor.
  • This case resulted in a positive positron emission tomography scan suggesting malignant neoplasm, but beta-catenin positivity on immunohistochemical staining separated MF from gastrointestinal stromal tumor and sclerosing mesenteritis.

  • [Title] Dacarbazine-Doxorubicin therapy ameliorated an extremely aggressive mesenteric desmoid tumor associated with familial adenomatous polyposis: report of a case.
  • After 10 months, we found an intra-abdominal tumor, which grew rapidly to 25 cm in diameter.
  • We performed an emergency operation, which revealed that it was a desmoid tumor derived mainly from colorectal mesenterium.
  • The tumor was removed with three short segments of intestine and the left ureter.
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan done 3 months later showed a 10 cm mesenteric desmoid tumor at the beginning of jejunum, approaching the root of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA).
  • Fortunately, we were able to remove the tumor without injuring the SMA.
  • To our distress, however, another recurrent mesenteric desmoid tumor was discovered in the pelvis one month later, which grew rapidly from 5 cm to 16 cm within 4 months.
  • Finally, when the desmoid occupied the pelvic space, we gave the patient dacarbazine (DTIC) and doxorubicin (DOX).
  • After seven courses, the mesenteric tumor showed an almost complete response (CR).
  • No evidence of further recurrence of mesenteric desmoid has been seen for 4 years.
  • This combination chemotherapy is a promising strategy, even against an extremely aggressive, life-threatening mesenteric desmoid associated with FAP.

  • [Title] [Aggressive intraabdominal fibromatosis].
  • BACKGROUND: Intraabdominal or mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare benign nonmetastatic neoplasm that appears as a sporadic lesion or in patients with familiar polyposis.
  • CASE REPORT: We presented a 22-year-old woman in whom an aggressive intraabdominal fibromatosis had appeared during the first pregnancy as a well circumscribed ovoid tumor, involving the terminal ileum, the caecum, the ascending colon, the right kidney, the ureter, and the right common iliac artery.
  • The tumor was excised with right colectomy, nephroureterectomy and resection of the involved artery using arterial reconstruction with graft interposition.
  • Two years after the surgery the patient developed an inoperable tumor recurrency with a fatal outcome.
  • CONCLUSION: In spite of a successful surgical excision during the original surgery intraabdominal or mesenteric fibromatosis might have an aggressive evolution leading to an inoperable tumor recurrency and a fatal outcome.

  • [Title] Extraabdominal desmoid tumors.
  • OBJECT: Desmoid tumors are fibrous, slow-growing, nonmalignant tumors with a low potential for metastasis.
  • METHODS: The authors undertook a retrospective study of 15 desmoid tumors in 11 women and four men (ranging in age from 32 to 67 years; median 48 years) treated at their institution.
  • There was tumor recurrence in two patients (13%) leading to further surgical intervention.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This case series included many recurrent desmoid tumors of the brachial plexus.
  • Currently, function-sparing excision is considered the optimal treatment for desmoid tumors arising in extraabdominal sites.
  • Adjunctive radiation or brachytherapy is reserved for a patient with further recurrence in whom resection would be disfiguring or in whom the disease is more refractory.

  • [Title] Isolated mesenteric fibromatosis.
  • Fibromatosis is a rare, locally aggressive but non-metastasising fibrous mass often associated with familial adenomatous polyposis in Gardner's Syndrome (GS).
  • Although sporadic cases occur, unlike in GS, they are predominantly extra-abdominal.
  • We report the case of a 40-year-old lady who underwent laparotomy for a large isolated abdominal mass three years after a Whipple's procedure for adenocarcinoma of the distal common bile duct.
  • A spherical, football sized tumour was found in the jejunal mesentery.
  • Resection of the tumour with jejunum was carried out.
  • This case is peculiar in that mesenteric fibromatosis occurred in a patient with prior history of periampullary carcinoma and without history of familial adenomatous polyposis.

  • [Title] A rare case of pregnancy complicated by mesenteric mass: what does chylous ascites tell us?
  • Mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare benign nonmetastatic neoplasm that appears as a sporadic lesion or occurs in patients with familial polyposis, while chylous ascites associated with aggressive mesenteric fibromatosis during pregnancy has never been reported thus far.
  • Here we present the case of a 28-year old pregnant woman, in whom an aggressive mesenteric fibromatosis with chylous ascites was detected, involving the jejunum, superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and superior mesenteric vein (SMV) and pancreas.
  • The authors report the case for its rarity and emphasize on combining clinicopathological, radiological and immunohistochemistry analysis for management of the disease.
