  • [Title] Multi-site abdominal tuberculosis mimics malignancy on 18F-FDG PET/CT: report of three cases.
  • We present three patients with abdominal pain and weight loss.
  • Conventional imaging studies indicated that abdominal neoplasm and 18F-FDG PET/CT for assessment of malignancy showed multiple lesions with intense 18F-FDG uptake in abdomen of the three cases.
  • However, the three patients were finally diagnosed with multi-site abdominal tuberculosis (TB).
  • Few reports on accumulation of 18F-FDG in abdominal TB are available in the literature.
  • A high index of suspicion is necessary to achieve an early diagnosis and a better outcome of the disease.

  • [Title] Endpoints for mouse abdominal tumor models: refinement of current criteria.
  • Accurate, rapid, and noninvasive health assessments are required to establish more appropriate endpoints in mouse cancer models where tumor size is not easily measured.
  • We evaluated potential endpoints in mice with experimentally induced peritoneal lymphoma, an abdominal tumor model, by comparing body weight, body condition, and behavior with those of a control group of mice not developing lymphoma.
  • Our hypothesis was that body weight would increase or plateau, whereas body condition and behavioral scores would decrease, as disease progressed.
  • Our results support the use of body condition and behavioral scoring as adjunctive assessment methods for mice involved in abdominal lymphoma tumor studies in which health may decline despite an increase or plateau in body weight.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: PMC is a rare, malignant, intra-abdominal neoplasm that produces large amounts of mucin.
  • Patients typically present with diffuse peritoneal disease.
  • After surgical treatment, multiple locoregional recurrences are common; recurrences outside the abdomen are infrequent.
  • The Kaplan-Meier method was used to estimate overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival.
  • RESULTS: All gross disease was removed in 61% of patients.
  • Adverse prognostic factors for OS identified by univariate analysis included partial mucin debulking, adenocarcinoma histology, systemic chemotherapy, diffuse IP disease at presentation, and no IP therapy.
  • On multivariate analysis, diffuse IP disease at presentation and no IP therapy remained significant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This large, single-institution, retrospective series with long-term follow-up suggests that IP chromic phosphate P 32 and 5-fluorouracil after maximal surgical resection of PMC of appendiceal origin is associated with improved OS and disease-free survival.

  • As dysregulation of β-catenin (βC) expression hallmarks fibromatosis, herein we searched for βC mutations in a large retrospective European multi-centric tumors series to relate with clinicopathologic parameters.
  • From this cohort, 101 pts with EAF surgically treated with curative intent and follow-up allowed us to relate βC mutational status to disease outcome.
  • The five-year recurrence free-survival was significantly worse in βC mutated tumors regardless of a specific genotype, than in wild-type tumors (49 versus 93%, respectively, p=0.02).

  • For 29 patients (27%) information on regional LN were missing.
  • Adjuvant therapy consisted of 8-months vincristine/dactinomycin/doxorubicin + flank 1440 cGy RT (whole abdominal 15 Gy in case of diffuse peritoneal contamination).
  • Overall 16 tumor failure occurred (2 in anaplastic tumors): abdominal relapse 8 (combined to other extra-abdominal site 3), lung 5, tumor progression 2, metacronous tumor 1.
  • Overall, RFS was 75% ±7 in patients with at least LN involvement compared to 89% ±4 in patients classified as stage III for the remaining criteria, including those without LN sampling (Logrank p.09).
  • 1440 cGy flank RT warranted satisfactory local tumor control.
  • The worse outcome reported in LN-positive patients deserves further attention.

  • 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] Surgical complications in abdominal tumor surgery in children. Experiences at a single oncological center.
  • INTRODUCTION: Surgical complications after tumor operations are frequent in children, with rates of up to 30% cited in the literature.
  • In a retrospective analysis, we evaluated the complications associated with tumor surgery.
  • The distribution of the various tumors, the type of surgery, and complications were evaluated.
  • RESULTS: A total of 145 operations for abdominal tumors were performed in 123 patients.
  • The three most common diseases were neuroblastoma (36%), nephroblastoma (26%), and ovarian tumor (19%).
  • In 68% of patients complete resection and in 19% of cases partial resection of the tumor was carried out; open biopsy was performed in 13%.
  • A significant increase in the risk of complications could be seen with an increase in SRFs (p=0.0267) and with disease stages 2 and 3 (p=0.016).
  • Tumor reduction surgery was also associated with an increase in complications (p=0.086).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In summary, tumor surgery is associated with considerable risks in children.

  • BACKGROUND: Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, primarily intra-abdominal tumor that has a poor outcome with current therapies.
  • PROCEDURE: We retrospectively reviewed patient characteristics, presenting symptoms, tumor pathology, treatment, and outcome of 11 pediatric patients with DSRCT at our institution.
  • In eight (73%) patients, the primary tumor was abdominal or pelvic, and in one patient each, it was submental, mediastinal, and paratesticular.
  • Nine (82%) patients had metastatic disease.
  • All tumors showed polyphenotypic differentiation by immunohistochemistry.
  • The EWS-WT1 transcript was detected in six of seven tumors tested.
  • One tumor showed rhabdomyoblastic differentiation after therapy.
  • Two died of treatment-related toxicity, six died of disease.
  • Patients with localized extra-abdominal disease have a better prognosis, most likely due to increased feasibility of resection.

  • Visual exploration of the abdominal cavity in extended diagnostic laparoscopy (EDL), including surgical dissection of areas which are primarily inaccessible, biopsy retrieval, and laparoscopic ultrasound, is superior in the diagnostic workup of early peritoneal carcinomatosis and (small) liver metastases.
  • In esophageal carcinoma, pretherapeutic EDL is valuable in case of advanced adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus (AEG I according to Siewert), whereas the incidence of abdominal tumor manifestations in squamous cell carcinoma is too low to perform staging laparoscopy.

  • A 26-year-old woman with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) was hospitalized for the surgical excision of a giant abdominal tumor of right kidney origin.
  • The pathological diagnosis of the tumor was conventional angiomyolipoma (AML).
  • After 8 months, 2 liver tumors appeared and grew rapidly.
  • The tumors were resected, and the pathological finding of these tumors was epithelioid AML.
  • Thereafter, metastatic multiple lung tumors appeared, and there was local recurrence of the liver tumors.
  • However, the drug did not inhibit the rapid growth of the tumor at all.
  • This finding suggests that sirolimus might not be effective against epithelioid AML, and in such cases, complete surgical resection should be the treatment of choice.

  • PURPOSE: Although occasionally difficult, distinguishing abdominal neuroblastoma (NBL) from Wilms tumor (WT) at presentation is important, as surgical management differs significantly.
  • In addition, laboratory evaluation, including urinary catecholamines, should be completed before surgery when the etiology of an abdominal tumor is uncertain.

  • [Title] Intra-abdominal tumor dissemination pattern and surgical outcome in 214 patients with primary ovarian cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: We performed a systematic evaluation of tumor pattern and surgical outcome in 214 consecutive patients with primary ovarian cancer.
  • METHODS: Based on the surgical and histological reports we retrospectively analyzed tumor localizations, surgical and clinical outcome.
  • Cox-regression analysis was performed to identify independent predictors of complete tumor resection and mortality.
  • Upper abdominal tumor involvement was associated with a significantly higher rate of lymph node metastasis and a significantly lower rate of complete surgical tumor resection, when compared to patients with tumor limited to the lower abdomen.
  • Median overall survival was 56; 61 and 27 months for patients with tumor load in the upper, lower and whole abdomen respectively (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The intraoperative tumor dissemination pattern and the post-operative tumor residuals are decisive for the prognosis in primary ovarian cancer.
  • There is an urgent need to use a systematic and standardized tumor documentation protocols to define the predictive and prognostic role of specific tumor pattern and to compare the surgical outcomes of different tumor centers.

  • [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] Identification of somatic APC mutations in recurrent desmoid tumors in a patient with familial adenomatous polyposis to determine actual recurrence of the original tumor or de novo occurrence.
  • A 25-year-old female with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) presented with an abdominal tumor just below the scar due to a colectomy performed 15 months previously.
  • This tumor (tumor A) measured 7 cm in diameter, was diagnosed as a desmoid tumor of the abdominal wall, and was excised.
  • Despite the subsequent administration of sulindac (300 mg daily for 1 year), a desmoid tumor recurred at the same site.
  • Excision was performed again when the tumor was 8 cm in diameter, and examination revealed it to consist of a large tumor (B) and a small tumor (C) that bulged out from tumor B.
  • Two somatic mutations were observed in tumor A: a TCAA deletion at codon 1068 and a deletion of a codon at bp 1192-2097.
  • In tumor B, a somatic mutation was found at codon 1041 changing CAA to TAA.
  • We could not detect any somatic mutations in tumor C.
  • We conclude that somatic mutation analysis of the APC gene can be used to identify whether a recurrent desmoid tumor in a patient with FAP is a new primary tumor or a recurrence from microscopic remnants of the original tumor.

  • [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.

  • A 10-yr-old male intact Asian small clawed otter (Aonyx cinerus) was presumptively diagnosed by histopathology and immunohistochemistry with lymphangiosarcoma after bony destruction of the ischium and spinal column from local tumor invasion had caused progressive signs of hind limb lameness and paresis/paralysis, which led to humane euthanasia.
  • At necropsy, the primary tumor was identified as a flocculent mass present under the caudal lumbar vertebrae.
  • The tumor had metastasized to at least two different sites within the spleen.
  • The abdominal tumor was confirmed to be of endothelial origin by the use of immunohistochemical staining for factor VIII-related antigen and was confirmed as lymphatic origin versus vascular origin because of the lack of red blood cells within the vessels.
  • This is the first report of lymphangiosarcoma, an uncommon malignant neoplasm of lymphatic origin, in a mustelid and the first report of neoplastic disease in an Asian small clawed otter.
  • In addition, the presentation of hind limb paresis associated with bony lysis because of local tumor invasion has not been previously reported with lymphangiosarcoma in humans, domestic animals, or nondomestic animals.

  • [Title] A 2-year-old boy with a stage III yolk sac tumor occurring in an intra-abdominal retained testis.
  • We, herein, report the case of a 2-year-old boy who presented with a huge yolk sac tumor with retroperitoneal lymph nodes metastasis that originated in a left intra-abdominal undescended testis.
  • Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a huge round tumor connecting to the left retroperitoneal lymph nodes with metastasis extending from the left pelvic region to the left renal hilum.
  • The right abdominal tumor appeared to be a giant testis that had strangulated at the neck of the cord.
  • The tumor had ruptured at the side of the left pelvic lymph node metastasis, and a yolk sac tumor was diagnosed from a histologic analysis of the resected specimens.
  • Postoperative PEB chemotherapy was effective, and a complete surgical resection of the tumor was performed 3 months after the initial laparotomy.
  • The pathologic findings showed fibrous tissue without any tumor cells.
  • This case might be a coincidental association of a yolk sac tumor occurring in an undescended testis, which thus caused a delay in making an accurate diagnosis.

  • [Transliterated title] Factores de sobrevida en 152 pacientes con tumores estromales gastrointestinales.
  • INTRODUCTION: The gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the designation for a specific type of mesenchymal tumor of the digestive tract that is origin in the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) or its precursor multipotentials, its presentation is rare and therefore its best knowledge must affect a proper diagnosis and treatment.
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the clinical characteristics and to identify factors influencing survival of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • The study has been performed in 152 patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor who were treated at the National Institute of Neoplastic Diseases (INEN), Lima, Peru, from January 1999 through December 2009.
  • The initial presentation was with localized disease to 79 patients (52%) and primary metastases in 73 patients (48%), with an average time of disease 14 months.
  • The prevalence of GIST tumor in the different organs was as follows: stomach with 77 patients (50.65%), jejunum with 21 patients (13.82%), retroperitoneum with 17 patients (11.18%), duodenum 11 patients (7.24%), colon 11 patients (7.24%), ileum 8 patients (5.26%),pancreas, 3 patients (1.97%), rectum, 3 patients (1.97%) and esophagus with 1 patient (0.66%).
  • The most common symptoms of GIST tumors in general were gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal tumor and abdominal pain.
  • The tumor size greater than 10 centimeters was found in 92 patients (60.51%), 39 patients had size between 5 and 10 centimeters (25.65%) and 20 patients had lesions smaller than 5 centimeters (13.15%).
  • Retroperitoneal GIST tumors had an expression of CD117 of 92.86% and CD34 of 60%, and GIST tumors of the pancreas had an expression of CD117 of 100% and CD34 of 100%.
  • Of the 152 patients, 93 had complete resection of the disease, 28 had partial resection, 24 were unresectable and 07 did not undergo surgery, the more aggressive behavior was observed in ileum, 03 patients were unresectable, 02 patients had partial resection and only 02 could be completely resected, the rest of the series in general, for each location, the GIST tumors completely resected outscored the unresectable and partially resected.
  • The survival of patients under and over 50 expressed a p = 0.08, cumulative survival rates by tumor size expressed p = 0.56, cumulative survival rates for stomach and intestinal location shows a p = 0.056.
  • Multivariate analysis showed that the most significant factor for disease progression was the primary metastases with p = 0.007, and that survival was directly related to complete resection of the disease which is expressed with p <0.0001.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most important prognostic factor of survival for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) is the complete resection of the disease.
  • The factor that is associated with progression of the disease is the presence of metastases.
  • In our series of 152 patients, tumor locations tend to relate better survival in gastric GIST that in intestinal GIST.
  • Differentiated tumor size in three size categories expressed no more related to survival.
  • The low mitotic index associated with metastasis, not reflected a good prognosis of disease.

  • [Title] A case of gastrointestinal stromal tumor with spontaneous rupture in the greater omentum.
  • BACKGROUND: Although GIST generally occurs in the digestive tract, such as the stomach, and small and small intestine primarily, Omental GIST tumours are very rare.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 63-year-old male patient, who recognized an abdominal tumor 1 year before admission, had a slight expansion of the tumor, reduction of the body and malaise, was consulted to our hospital.
  • Abdominal CT and MRI revealed a cystic lesion of 26 cm in diameter with a clear boundary from immediately below the interseptum to the pelvic cavity, and imaged the septum and cystic wall.
  • We considered that the patient had a cystic tumor in the abdomen, of which the primary lesion was unknown, and scheduled surgery.
  • The patient unfortunately deteriorated with shock and sudden pain in the abdomen.
  • Wediagnosed tumor rapture, and emergency surgery was performed.
  • The tumor, weighing 3,600 g, was mostly cystic, and filled with sanguinous fluid and clot.
  • Histologically, the tumor was composed of spindle cells, and was positive for c-KIT (CD117), slightly positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (SMA), and S-100 protein positive.
  • Based on these findings, the tumor was diagnosed as GIST primarily occurring in the greater omentum.

  • METHODS: From September 2004 to August 2007, 201 patients with a Risk of Malignancy Index (RMI) >150 based on serum CA-125, ultrasound examinations and menopausal state, underwent PET/CT within 2 weeks prior to standard surgery/debulking of a pelvic tumor.
  • RESULTS: Median follow-up was 30.2 months; median age was 62.5 years (range 35-85 years); 97% (64/66) had a performance status <or=2; 38% (25/66) underwent complete debulking (no macroscopic residual tumor); 51% (39/66) was diagnosed with PET/CT stage III and 41% (27/66) was diagnosed with PET/CT stage IV.
  • Using univariate analysis, PET/CT stage III (P=0.03), complete debulking (no macroscopic residual tumor) (P=0.002), and GOG performance status <or=2 (P=0.04) were statistically significant prognostic variables.
  • The strongest determinant of patient outcome is residual abdominal tumor after primary surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Stage IIIC epithelial ovarian cancer is generally associated with upper abdominal tumor implants of greater than 2 cm and carries a grave prognosis.
  • METHODS: All consecutive patients found to have Stage IIIC epithelial ovarian cancer during a 9-year period (1994-2002) were analyzed for surgical procedures, pathology, and disease-free (DFS) and overall survival (OS).
  • Nine had small volume upper abdominal disease (IIIA/B before upstaging), 15 had disease limited to the pelvis and 12 had disease confined to the ovaries.
  • 32/36 patients had no gross residual disease at the conclusion of surgery.
  • We observed no significant difference in outcomes between patients upstaged from IIIA/B versus I-II stage disease.
  • The outcomes were superior to a control group of patients cytoreduced to either no gross RD or RD<1 cm, who had large volume upper abdominal disease at beginning of surgery (p<0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients upstaged to Stage IIIC epithelial ovarian cancer for node involvement have an excellent 5-year OS relative to all patients with Stage IIIC disease.
  • These data demonstrate the necessity for stratifying patients classified as having Stage IIIC disease based solely on nodal disease when comparing outcomes.

  • [Title] Insufficient ability of omental milky spots to prevent peritoneal tumor outgrowth supports omentectomy in minimal residual disease.
  • BACKGROUND: The greater omentum is frequently involved in the course of gastrointestinal and ovarian tumors.
  • Paradoxically, many immune cells, such as macrophages that accumulate in so-called milky spots, reside within the omentum and are cytotoxic against tumor cells ex vivo.
  • Consequently, omental macrophages might play an important role in killing tumor cells, and may hereby prevent development into local peritoneal recurrences.
  • In the present study, we therefore evaluated the role of the omentum and the clinical relevance of omentectomy in minimal residual disease (MRD).
  • METHODS: Tumor cell dissemination patterns on the omentum in a rat model were examined using DiI-labelled CC531s tumor cells.
  • Additionally, intra peritoneal (i.p.) tumor load was investigated in rats that underwent omentectomy or sham laparotomy followed by i.p. injection of CC531s cells on day 21, which represented MRD.
  • RESULTS: At 4 h post injection, tumor cells predominantly adhered on milky spots.
  • Number of cells thereafter declined rapidly suggesting initial tumor killing functions in these specific immune aggregates.
  • Despite initial reduction observed in milky spots, numbers of tumor cells however increased at fatty tissue stripes that border the omentum.
  • This indicated proliferation at these locations, which corresponded to macroscopic observations of the omenta on day 21 after tumor cell injection.
  • Omentectomy resulted in reduced intra-abdominal tumor load, which was completely attributable to the absence of the omentum, as tumor development did not differ on other sites.
  • Even in the MRD group microscopic clusters of tumor cells located in the omentum eventually developed into macroscopic nodules.
  • CONCLUSION: Since the ability of omental milky spots is, even in MRD, insufficient to prevent intra abdominal tumor outgrowth, omentectomy, which reduces tumor load, is recommended in surgical treatment of intra abdominal tumors that are prone to disseminate intraperitoneally.

  • A 62-year-old male visited our hospital because of abdominal distention, prepubic tumor,and testicular hydrocele.
  • Computed tomography revealed diffuse swelling of the abdominal wall and hydronephrosis of the right kidney.
  • Pathological diagnosis of both gastric tumor and abdominal wall biopsy specimens was poorly-differentiated adenocarcinoma containing signet ring cell carcinoma.
  • Abdominal wall swelling like cuirass disappeared after 2 courses of low-dose paclitaxel therapy.
  • Nine repeated courses of this regimen have been given until now; the relapse of the abdominal wall invasion has not become apparent, and primary gastric lesion has been a stable disease.
  • Diffuse abdominal wall invasion of gastric cancer like cuirass without ascites is a rare condition, and low-dose paclitaxel was very effective for this condition.

  • [Title] Primary malignant retroperitoneal tumors: analysis of a single institutional experience.
  • AIMS: In order to achieve complete resection in the surgical management of retroperitoneal tumors, it is crucial to know the tumor's anatomical location relative to neighboring organs.
  • METHODS: Forty-nine patients with primary malignant retroperitoneal tumors were divided by tumor location into two groups [upper abdomen (group 1) or lower abdomen (group 2)], and clinicopathological features, tumor recurrence, and patient survival were assessed.
  • RESULTS: No significant differences in preoperative clinical characteristics existed between two groups, and liposarcoma was the most frequently observed tumor type.
  • The 5-year survival rate of patients with tumors smaller than 10 cm was 78.4%, while that of patients with tumors larger than 10 cm was 38.1% (p=0.017).
  • CONCLUSIONS: An upper abdominal tumor location is a positive prognostic factor even if small tumor size (<10 cm) and complete resection of the tumor are still more important factors to improve outcome in patients with malignant primary retroperitoneal tumors.
  • Because complete resection was shown to be the most important prognostic factor, an aggressive and careful surgical approach is recommended for the treatment of such tumors.

  • [Title] Low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma with inferior vena cava tumor thrombus and intracardiac extension: radical resection may improve recurrence free survival.
  • Although the overall five-year survival rate for low-grade ESS exceeds 80%, about 50% of the patients show tumor recurrence, mostly after a long latency period.
  • Tumor invasion of the great vessels is extremely rare.
  • We describe a patient with advanced low-grade ESS with tumor invasion of the infrarenal aorta and the inferior vena cava.
  • The patient presented with a large tumor thrombus extending from the inferior vena cava into the right atrium.
  • METHODS: Review of literature and identification of 19 patients, including our own case report, with advanced low-grade ESS with invasion of the great vessels and formation of an inferior vena cava tumor thrombus.
  • RESULTS: All 19 patients presented with an abdominal tumor mass and a tumor thrombus protruding into the inferior vena cava.
  • The tumor thrombus extended into the right heart cavities in nine patients reaching the right atrium in four, the right ventricle in three and the pulmonary artery in two patients.
  • There were 5 patients with an advanced primary tumor and 14 patients with an advanced recurrent tumor.
  • Seven patients presented with synchronous metastatic disease and six patients with a pelvic tumor infiltrating the bladder, the rectosigmoid colon or the infrarenal aorta.
  • Tumor thrombectomy was accomplished by cavatomy or by right atriotomy after installation of a cardiopulmonary bypass.
  • Radical tumor resections were achieved in 10 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Low-grade ESS is a rare angioinvasive tumor with a high recurrence rate.
  • Resection of an inferior vena cava tumor thrombus, even with extension into the right heart cavities, can be performed safely.
  • Extensive radical surgery is therefore justified in the treatment of advanced tumor manifestations of a low-grade ESS potentially improving recurrence free survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Recent studies have suggested that the definition of optimal cytoreduction for advanced EOC should be changed from the current Gynecologic Oncology Group threshold of < or =1 cm residual disease to no gross residual disease owing to improved survival of patients (pts) rendered macroscopically disease-free.
  • The objective of this study was to analyze survival rates at very specific residual disease diameters to determine the optimal goal of primary cytoreduction for bulky stage IIIC EOC.
  • To analyze a homogeneous cohort of cases, we excluded pts with stage IIIC disease based on nodal metastasis alone (without bulky abdominal tumor), fallopian tube or primary peritoneal carcinomas, and borderline tumors.
  • Univariate and multivariate analyses, which included various prognostic factors, identified amount of residual disease as a significant prognostic factor (P < 0.001).
  • Median overall survival in relation to the 5 residual disease categories was: no gross residual, 106 months; gross < or =0.5 cm, 66 months; 0.6-1.0 cm, 48 months; 1-2 cm, 33 months; >2 cm, 34 months.
  • Statistical comparison between the 5 residual disease categories revealed 3 distinct groups with significantly different survival rates (P < 0.01).
  • CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that removal of all evidence of macroscopic disease is associated with prolonged survival and should be the goal of primary cytoreductive surgery.
  • If complete gross resection is not feasible, however, cytoreduction to as minimal residual tumor as possible should be the focus of cytoreductive efforts, as each incremental decrease in residual disease below 1 cm may be associated with an incremental improvement in overall survival.

  • Although their overall incidence is low, GISTs are distinctive subgroup of gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors which express CD117 or platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRA).
  • Considered as rare digestive cancers, tumors like schwannomas, neurofibromas, gastrointestinal leiomiomas are now reclassified as GIST based on immunohistochemistry studies.
  • Most with symptomatic disease: palpable tumor, abdominal pain, anemia, fatigue, superior digestive hemorrhage or occlusion.
  • Imagistic diagnosis consisted of: barium swallow, abdominal sonography, CT and PET-CT.
  • The principle of surgery for GIST is RO resection of the tumor.
  • Tumor rupture or R1 resection of the primary tumor has a negative impact on disease free survival.
  • Some patients (great volume tumors, R1 or R2 resection) had adjuvant treatment.

  • There seemed to be no apparent residues of a carcinoid tumor on abdominal CT.
  • Therefore, we started an octreotide LAR, which remarkably reduced the size of metastatic tumors.
  • The treatment of an octreotide LAR had controlled the progression of metastatic tumors for two and half years.
  • In this case, the effect of an octreotide LAR for recurrence of rectal carcinoid after local therapies brought good controls of symptoms and an inhibition of tumor growth for long-term.

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the gastrointestinal tract, but also occurs at a lower frequency in extra-gastrointestinal regions such as omentum, mesentery, retroperitoneum and undefined abdominal sites.
  • This tumor is called extragastrointestinal stromal tumor (EGIST).
  • EGIST is mostly diagnosed as a cystic mass, but rarely occurs as a disseminated abdominal tumor.
  • Abdominal CT showed diffuse peritoneal thickening with a large amount of ascites, but no definite mass lesion.
  • Laparoscopic biopsy was performed and histologic findings showed tumor composed of epithelioid cells.
  • In the results of immunohistochemical stains, the tumor showed positive reactivity with CD117 (c-kit), CD34, vimentin and actin, but negative reactivity with desmin and S-100 protein.

  • The occurrence of an abdominal schwannoma effecting an acute postrenal failure has not been reported thus far.
  • Further diagnostic investigations demonstrated a 24x20x15 cm abdominal tumor, which lead to an acute postrenal failure.
  • The resection of the intraperitoneal tumor was performed completely, the histopathological examination revealed a benign schwannoma.
  • Subsequently, the renal function had rapidly to normalised and ten years after the operation he has had no tumor recurrence.
  • The clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and operative strategy for benign and malignant abdominal schwannomas are discussed.

  • [Title] Clonality analysis of pediatric multiple tumors: two case reports and laboratory investigation.
  • We examined the possibility of using microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms as markers to detect the clonal origin of tumor cells found in the same patient.
  • We considered two children with complex tumor diseases: one with supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) and a hepatic rhabdoid tumor and another with brain and abdominal rhabdoid tumors.
  • In the first patient we found an mtDNA cytosine insertion both in the normal tissue and in the primary tumor, whereas in the hepatic tumor we detected an insertion of 2 cytosine.
  • In the second child, who had a constitutional mutation of hSNF5/INI-1, we identified the same mtDNA pattern both in normal tissue and in the abdominal tumor but not in the brain tumor, which presented three different mtDNA polymorphisms.
  • Thus, we demonstrated the same clonal origin for tumors in the first patient and different clonal origins of the tumors in the second patient.
  • Molecular examination of clonality is a useful tool to obtain information about the origin of synchronous and/or metachronous tumors found in the same patient.

  • At 18, a tumor in the abdominal wall was excised.
  • At 23, the tumor recurred which was removed again.
  • Histological examination of the chest wall tumor showed epithelioid cells arranged like alveolar pattern with dense collagen stroma.
  • Abdominal and the rib tumors showed the same immunohistochemistrical expression.
  • It is noteworthy that the tumor cells of the rib lesion showed increased cellularity, and its Ki-67 activity was higher as compared with the abdominal tumor, suggestive of progression of malignancy of SEF.

  • The animal was castrated, and histologic examination revealed a biphasic sex cord-stromal tumor, with one region resembling Sertoli-cell tumor and one region resembling granulosa-cell tumor, with extensive microfollicular pattern and many Call-Exner bodies.
  • Eight months after castration, the animal was euthanized on discovery of a caudal abdominal mass that displaced organs, was highly infiltrative, and extended into the paravertebral musculature with lysis of vertebral bone.
  • Histologic examination of the abdominal tumor showed multifocal formation of Call-Exner bodies in an otherwise highly dedifferentiated population.
  • Positive immunolabeling for alpha inhibin confirmed the sex cord-stromal origin of the abdominal and paravertebral tumor masses.
  • This case has similarities to malignant testicular granulosa-cell tumor of humans.
