  • [Title] The effect of respiratory motion variability and tumor size on the accuracy of average intensity projection from four-dimensional computed tomography: an investigation based on dynamic MRI.
  • Composite images such as average intensity projection (AIP) and maximum intensity projection (MIP) derived from four-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT) images are commonly used in radiation therapy for treating lung and abdominal tumors.
  • Subsequently, the resultant MIP underestimates the actual tumor motion extent.
  • As a more general application, AIP comprises not only the tumor motion extent but also the probability that the tumor is present.
  • Five-minute MRI scans were performed on seven healthy volunteers and eight lung tumor patients.
  • In addition, images of circular phantoms with diameter 1, 3, or 5 cm were generated by software to simulate lung tumors.
  • AIP similarity indicated by the Dice index between RedCAM and dMRI was calculated and correlated with respiratory variability (v) and tumor size (s).
  • The similarity of percentile intrafractional motion target area (IMTA), defined by the area that the tumor presented for a given percentage of time, and MIP-to-percentile IMTA similarity as a function of percentile were also determined.
  • As a result, AIP similarity depends on both respiratory variability and tumor sizes.
  • The AIP similarity correlated linearly with the respiratory variability normalized by tumor sizes (R2 equal to 0.82 and 0.91 for the phantom study and the patient study, respectively).
  • For both studies, MIP derived from RedCAM was close to the area that the tumor presented 90% or more of the time and missed the region where the tumor appeared less than 10% of the time.
  • In conclusion, the accuracy of composite images such as AIP and MIP derived from 4D-CT to define the tumor motion and position is affected by patient-specific respiratory variability and tumor sizes.

  • [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.

  • [Title] Spectrum of malignant somatostatin-producing neuroendocrine tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical manifestations and outcome of patients with somatostatinomas--rare neuroendocrine tumors of pancreaticoduodenal origin.
  • METHODS: We searched the medical archives and tumor registry of our institution for somatostatinomas or somatostatin-staining tumors for the 12-year period from January 1990 to February 2002.
  • Patients with a neuroendocrine tumor and an elevated serum somatostatin level or somatostatin-positive tumor immunostaining were included in this study.
  • The diagnosis of a somatostatinoma was made by immunostaining of the tumor in 9 patients and by finding elevated serum somatostatin levels in 2.
  • Five primary tumors were of duodenal and 6 of pancreatic origin.
  • Psammoma body formation and association with neurofibromatosis were seen only in the duodenal tumors.
  • The known primary tumor sizes varied from 2 to 6 cm.
  • Liver metastatic lesions were present in 6 patients, abdominal lymph node involvement was found in 10 patients, and lung, spleen, and ovarian metastatic involvement was noted in 1 patient each.
  • The presence of a mass led to the diagnosis in most patients with primary duodenal tumors, whereas patients with pancreatic tumors were more likely to have endocrine manifestations.
  • At last follow-up, 2 patients were alive without evidence of disease (8 and 10 years after diagnosis), and 3 were alive with liver metastatic lesions.
  • The duodenal tumors were more likely to be pure somatostatinomas and have psammoma bodies.
  • Pancreatic tumors were more likely to be multihormonal.
  • Mass effect of the tumor was the usual manifestation leading to diagnosis.
  • These tumors are slow growing, and long-term survival is possible.

  • 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.

  • INTRODUCTION: Mucoceles of the appendix are infrequent entities and are found in only 0.25% of all appendectomies and 8% of all appendicular tumors.
  • Three patients (11.1%) underwent surgery because of a diagnosis of abdominal tumor.
  • The main reason for emergency surgery was lower right abdominal pain in 14 patients (82.2%), intestinal obstruction in one (5.8%), a diagnosis of endometriosis in one (5.8%) and a diagnosis of pyosalpinx in one (5.8%).
  • We found an overall incidence of 11 cases (40.7%) presenting with synchronous or metachronous neoplasms from other locations.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We recommend monitoring of all patients with mucocele of the appendix, because these masses can sometimes be associated with neoplasms in other locations and there is a risk of pseudomyxoma peritonei even after a long follow-up.

  • [Title] Advanced-stage gastrointestinal stromal tumor treated with imatinib in a 12-year-old girl with a unique mutation of PDGFRA.
  • A 12-year-old girl presented with a large abdominal tumor.
  • At surgery, a huge pedunculated extraluminal tumor was found arising from the greater curvature of the stomach and invading the surrounding structures, and there were also a submucosal tumor measuring 5 x 4 x 4 cm and multiple intramural nodules beside the main tumor.
  • A diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) was made.
  • The huge size of the tumor (3.6 kg in weight and 36 x 25 x 25 cm in diameter), the invasion of the surrounding structures, and the increased mitotic figures indicated the GIST had malignant potential.
  • Sequence analysis of the polymerase chain reaction product of RNAs from the tumor cells revealed a novel platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRA) mutation, which would exhibit biologic consequences similar to those of the c-kit mutation.
  • The patient underwent a 3-month course of imatinib mesylate as adjuvant chemotherapy because of the possible risk for tumor recurrence.

  • It is possible that some of this variation is due to abdominal tissue inhomogeneity, which might be causing focal beam distortion, and might largely decrease the focusing ability in deep-seated tissues.
  • Abdominal MR data from four uterine fibroid patients were obtained to reconstruct the three-dimensional meshes of interfaces used in simulations, and one patient was selected to perform the analysis of key parameters in focused ultrasound surgery.
  • This study may offer important implications and information for treatment planning toward optimizing focused ultrasound surgery in uterine fibroid or other abdominal tumor treatments.

  • This report presents a case of endometrioid adenocarcinoma arising from endometriosis of the mesenterium of the sigmoid colon following total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for leiomyoma of the uterus and infiltrating pelvic endometriosis, and hormone replacement therapy.
  • A 62-year-old woman presented with an abdominal tumor.
  • Based on the diagnosis of mesocolonic tumor, sigmoidectomy with lymph node resection was performed.
  • The tumor cells were immunopositive for cytokeratin 7, but negative for cytokeratin 20, and the tumor was histologically diagnosed as endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the mesocolon.
  • The patient had been receiving high-dose unopposed estrogens for 14 years after a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
  • Physicians should recognize that endometriosis-associated neoplasms are able to cause symptoms or signs such as abdominal and/or pelvic pain, pelvic mass, and vaginal bleeding, especially if the patient has been treated with hormone replacement therapy.
  • It is important to recognize the possibility of tumors arising from endometriosis when evaluating intestinal or mesenteric neoplasms in women, even in the patient who has previously undergone total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, particularly if the patient has a history of endometriosis and has received hormone replacement therapy.

  • [Title] [Surgical treatment of abdominal tumours closely related to major blood vessels].
  • INTRODUCTION: Radical operative treatment of abdominal tumours closely related to major blood vessels often demands complex vascular procedures.
  • METHOD: Primary localisation of the tumour was the kidney in 14 patients, the suprarenal gland in 2, the retroperitoneum in 23 and the testis in 7 patients.
  • The tumour compressed abdominal aorta occurred in 3 cases, vena cava inferior in 5 and both the abdominal aorta and vena cava inferior in 11 cases.
  • In 4 cases the tumour infiltrated the abdominal aorta, in 11 the vena cava inferior and in 8 both of them.
  • In two patients, the tumour compressed the vena cava inferior and infiltrated the aorta; in two patients the aorta was compressed and the vena cava was infiltrated.
  • In three cases only the exploration was performed due to multiple abdominal organ infiltration.
  • The ex tempore biopsy showed the type of tumour in which the radical surgical treatment did not improve the prognosis.
  • In 20 cases of tumour compression, subadventitional excision was performed.
  • In 23 cases of infiltration, the tumour excision and vascular reconstruction had to be performed.
  • CONCLUSION: Treatment of the abdominal tumours closely related to major blood vessels must be interdisciplinary, considering diagnostics, operability estimation and additional measures.
  • Tumour reduction cannot improve long term prognosis, and has no major impact on life quality.

  • The abdominal wall tumor was buried in the rectus abdominis muscle and was tightly attached to the ileum.
  • In addition, the immunohistochemical staining pattern of the abdominal tumor was identical to that of the original bile duct cancer.
  • This indicated that the abdominal tumor represented a local recurrence (probably due to peritoneal implantation) at 12 years after the resection of the hilar bile duct cancer.

  • [Title] Four-dimensional computed tomography scan analysis of tumor and organ motion at varying levels of abdominal compression during stereotactic treatment of lung and liver.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate the effectiveness of different abdominal compression levels on tumor and organ motion during stereotactic body radiotherapy of lower lobe lung and liver tumors using four-dimensional (4D)-CT scan analysis.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Three 4D-CT scans were acquired for 10 patients first using with no compression and then compared with two different levels of abdominal compression.
  • The position of the tumor and various organs were defined at the peak inspiratory and expiratory phases and compared to determine the maximum motion.
  • Mean overall tumor motion was 13.6 mm (2sigma [2 sigma] 11.5-15.6), 8.3 mm (2sigma 6.0-10.5), and 7.2 mm (2sigma 5.4-9.0) for no compression, MC, and HC, respectively.
  • A significant difference in the control of both superior-inferior (SI) and overall motion of tumors was seen with the application of MC and HC when compared with no compression (p < 0.0001 for both).
  • High compression force improved SI and overall tumor motion compared with MC, but this was only significant for SI motion (p = 0.04 and p = 0.06).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Four-dimensional CT shows significant control of both lower lobe lung and liver tumors using abdominal compression.
  • High levels of compression improve SI tumor motion when compared with MC.

  • Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disease of women that is characterized by a proliferation of abnormal smooth muscle-like cells (LAM cells), which leads to cystic lung lesions, lymphatic abnormalities, and abdominal tumors (e.g., angiomyolipomas).
  • LAM occurs sporadically or in association with tuberous sclerosis complex, an autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by hamartoma-like tumor growths.
  • The tumor suppressor genes TSC1 and TSC2 have been implicated in the etiology of LAM, as mutations and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in TSC2 have been detected in LAM cells.
  • LAM presents insidiously with progressive breathlessness, or dramatically with recurrent pneumothorax, chylothorax, or sudden abdominal hemorrhage.
  • CT scans show numerous thin-walled cysts throughout the lungs, abdominal angiomyolipomas, and lymphangioleiomyomas.
  • Progression of disease is best assessed by measurements of DL(CO) and FEV1.
  • In the proper clinical setting, LAM may be diagnosed by a thoraco-abdominal CT scan.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Incidental finding of pseudomyxoma peritonei at primary cesarean section.
  • Neoplasms of the appendix that secrete mucin such as adenocarcinoma may rupture, leading to intraperitoneal seeding of the peritoneum and producing the clinical picture of pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP).
  • PMP is characterized by mucin-producing neoplastic cells that have seeded the peritoneum from the ruptured viscous and continue to secrete copious amounts of gelatinous material that accumulates in the abdomen producing the characteristic "jelly belly."
  • Because nonspecific abdominal pain and increasing abdominal girth are common in pregnancy, patients' complaints may go ignored.
  • Early diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening disease requires that clinicians expand the differential diagnosis and consider the possibility of a malignant neoplasm presenting in the pregnant female.

  • [Title] Detection of neuroendocrine tumors of the small bowel by double balloon enteroscopy.
  • BACKGROUND: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) account for one-third of all small bowel neoplasms.
  • The search for the primary tumor in NET is important, even though it is difficult to localize, as its surgical excision leads to a better prognosis, even in metastasized stages of the disease.
  • The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of double balloon enteroscopy (DBE) for the detection of the primary tumor in patients with NET.
  • METHODS: Twelve consecutive patients (eight women, four men) with suspected carcinoid syndrome, either metastatic to the liver (n=5), symptoms of a neuroendocrine tumor with elevated tumor markers (n=5), or obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (n=2) underwent DBE for the search of the primary tumor or the source of bleeding.
  • All patients underwent abdominal sonography and a computed tomography (CT) scan, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), ileocolonoscopy, and octreotide scintigraphy prior to DBE.
  • The CT scan and sonography of the abdomen as well as EGD and ileocolonoscopy were unable to detect the primary tumor in any patient.
  • A submucosal tumor of the ileum or the jejunum could be detected by DBE was detected in seven patients (58%) (anal route, n=4; oral route, n=3).
  • In four of these patients (33%) this finding could be confirmed by the surgical resection of a NET.
  • In two patients (17%) with a submucosal ileum protrusion suspicious for NET, laparotomy and intraoperative endoscopy did not confirm the tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, the diagnostic yield of DBE for primary tumor search in patients with metastatic or suspected NET was 33%.

  • [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.

  • BACKGROUND: In addition to detecting colorectal neoplasia, abdominal computed tomography (CT) with colonography technique (CTC) can also detect unsuspected extracolonic cancers and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA).The efficacy and cost-effectiveness of this combined abdominal CT screening strategy are unknown.
  • METHODS: A computerized Markov model was constructed to simulate the occurrence of colorectal neoplasia, extracolonic malignant neoplasm, and AAA in a hypothetical cohort of 100,000 subjects from the United States who were 50 years of age.
  • Simulated screening with CTC, using a 6-mm polyp size threshold for reporting, was compared with a competing model of optical colonoscopy (OC), both without and with abdominal ultrasonography for AAA detection (OC-US strategy).
  • CONCLUSION: When detection of extracolonic findings such as AAA and extracolonic cancer are considered in addition to colorectal neoplasia in our model simulation, CT colonography is a dominant screening strategy (ie, more clinically effective and more cost-effective) over both colonoscopy and colonoscopy with 1-time ultrasonography.

  • The p16 tumor suppressor gene is inactivated by promoter region hypermethylation in many types of tumor.
  • Recent studies showed that aberrant methylation of the p16 gene is an early event in many tumors, especially in lung cancer, and may constitute a new biomarker for early detection and monitoring of prevention trials.
  • We detected tumor-associated aberrant hypermethylation of the p16 gene in plasma and tissue DNA from 153 specimens using a modified semi-nested methylation-specific PCR (MSP) combining plastic microchip electrophoresis or slab gel electrophoresis, respectively.
  • Specimens were from 79 lung cancer patients, 15 abdominal tumor patients, 30 positive controls and 30 negative controls.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • Immediately after the laparotomy, 200 ml physiologic saline, heated to 37 degrees C, was introduced into the abdominal cavity, mannualy dispersed and collected from the region around the gastric tumor and the pouch of Douglas.
  • The frequency of positive cytological findings was compared to the location and the diameter of the cancer, pathohistological type of carcinoma, pathohistological stage of the disease, lymph node and the liver and/or peritoneal metastases and the type of surgical procedure.
  • A statistically highly significant difference (p < or = 0.001) in the frequency of positive cytological finding was found between the groups of patients with and without cancer invasion of serosa, with cancer diameters > 5 cm and < or = 5 cm, in the stage of disease I, II and III, IV, with macroscopically present and without metastases, with re section and D2 lymphadenectomy and palliative procedure.
  • The results of the univariate analysis showed that the cancer diameter > 5 cm, tumor invasion of serosa, pathohistological stage of the disease III and IV and macroscopically visible metastases were the most important risk factors for the free cancer cells detection.
  • The frequency of positive cytological findings was highly associated with the diameter of the tumor and the cancer invasion of serosa.

  • [Title] Avoiding misdiagnosing neuroblastoma as Wilms tumor.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Goblet cell carcinoid, a rare tumor of intermediate malignant potential, is known to account for a significant minority of appendiceal neoplasms.
  • Presenting diagnoses included appendicitis (n=8), abdominal or liver mass (n=5), uterine fibroids (n=1), ovarian mass (n=1), and Crohn's Disease exacerbation (n=1).
  • Patients were divided into two groups: those where the diagnosis was an incidental finding at operation (Group 1) and those where the presentation was of an abdominal mass or metastatic disease (Group 2).
  • Group 2 included patients presenting with Krukenberg type lesions (n=2) and abdominal masses (n=4).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Goblet cell carcinoid is a rare malignant tumor largely affecting the appendix.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • There are increasing reports of seeding of tumor at the trocar sites following laparoscopic cholecystectomy in patients with unexpected or inapparent gallbladder carcinoma.
  • Although the mechanism of the abdominal wall recurrence is still unclear, laparoscopic handling of the tumor, perforation of the gallbladder, and extraction of the specimen without an endobag may be risk factors for the spreading of malignant cells.
  • The Authors report the case of late development of umbilical metastasis after laparoscopic cholecystectomy; the presence of an incisional hernia and the finding of a stone in subcutaneous tissue demonstrate the diffusion of tumor cells into subcutaneous tissue during the extraction of gallbladder.

  • [Title] Resected serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas: a review of 158 patients with recommendations for treatment.
  • BACKGROUND: Serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas are regarded as a benign entity with rare malignant potential.
  • OBJECTIVE: To perform the largest single institution review of patients who underwent surgical resection for serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas in the hopes of guiding future management.
  • METHODS: Between June 1988 and January 2005, 158 patients with serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas underwent surgical resection.
  • The majority of patients were symptomatic at presentation (63%), with abdominal pain as the most common symptom.
  • Mean tumor diameter was 5.1 cm.
  • One of three patients with locally aggressive benign disease later presented with metastatic disease.
  • Resection margins for all 158 patients were negative for tumor, and only one (0.6%) showed lymph node involvement.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgically resected serous cystic neoplasms of the pancreas are typically seen in asymptomatic women as 5 cm neoplasms and are predominantly benign.
  • Cystadenocarcinoma is a rare finding on initial resection of serous cystic neoplasms.
  • However, initial pathology specimens exhibiting benign but locally aggressive neoplasia may indicate an increased likelihood of recurrence or metachronous metastasis, although this claim is limited by a small patient subpopulation in this study and warrants further review.

  • [Title] [Stereotactic hypofractionated radiotherapy of non-hepatic abdominal tumors].
  • PURPOSE: The clinical experiences of 12 patients with non-hepatic abdominal tumors who underwent stereotactic hypofractionated radiotherapy are presented.
  • Gross tumor volume of the 10 ranged from 2 cc to 32 cc (mean: 11 cc), and the minimal dose enclosing 95% of the planning target volume (D95) was between 28.6 Gy and 35 Gy.
  • RESULTS: Local regrowth was seen in 9 months in only 1 of the 12 tumors, and the patient died of the disease.
  • Four patients died because of tumor growth in other sites.
  • The remaining 7 patients are alive without disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Stereotactic hypofractionated radiotherapy is effective for the treatment of selected non-hepatic abdominal tumors.
  • However, the optimal radiation dose for tumor control and the tolerance dose of the gastrointestinal tract in hypofractionated irradiation must be studied further.

  • BACKGROUND: In order to treat the peritoneal carcinomatosis from abdominal neoplasms has been recently proposed complete peritonectomy associated with IntraPeritoneal Hyperthermic Chemotherapy (IHPC).
  • Primary tumor was ovarian carcinoma in ten patients: four cases presented peritoneal surface malignancies (PSM) after any time from hysteroadnexectomy related to primary tumor, six cases synchronous PSM.
  • Primary tumor was gastric cancer in seven patients: the peritoneal washing was positive in four cases and, during follow-up period after gastrectomy, other two cases presented PSM.
  • One patient was previously treated with ovariectomy for ovaric mass that resulted a Krukenberg's tumor of gastric cancer.
  • Primary tumor was pseudomixoma peritonei in four patients; cytoreductive surgery and IHPC was carried as first line therapy in only one patient.
  • IHPC was carried out through abdominopelvic cavity for 60 minutes using a closed abdomen technique.
  • After a median follow-up of 8 months (range 2-34), 14 (58%) patients are alive and 13 are disease free.

  • [Title] Abdominal aortic aneurysm and concomitant malignancy: what treatment?
  • The association of neoplasm and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), although rare, may represents a therapeutic dilemma.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1990 and December 2004 in our departement 127 patients were submitted because of an AAA, in 8 cases there was an association with a neoplasm, in the greater part being a colon cancer.
  • DISCUSSION: In case of this association the prognosis is related to neoplasm's stage.

  • Exposure of the abdominal cavity by lower transverse laparotomy performed under general endotracheal anaesthesia revealed slight uterus enlargement with normal left adnexa, whereas right adnexa were not exposed due to the soft tumour in the region of the right ligamentum latum, which displaced the urinary bladder and uterus leftward.
  • Left adnexa showed a normal finding.
  • Hemalaun-eosin staining of the preparation of the tumour capsule and tumour content showed colonies of threads extending radially to the surrounding tissues (drusen), surrounded by pus corpuscles, polymorphonuclears and macrophages containing lipids (sulfur granules).
  • The patient was free from disease relapse at 2 years after the procedure.
  • Thus, total abdominal hysterectomy and salpingoophorectomy, along with antibiotic therapy, were the definite mode of treatment for pelvic actinomycosis.

  • At the age of 11, the girl presented with a huge abdominal mass.
  • Chemotherapy and low-dose radiotherapy succeeded in shrinking the tumour mass, making it operable.
  • Subsequently, she developed a painless abdominal tumour.
  • CONCLUSION: Because we experienced favourable results with laparoscopic biopsy in our patients, we are of the opinion that laparoscopy-assisted biopsies are well suited for the management of intra-abdominal tumours in systemic malignant disease.

  • [Title] Abdominal magnetic resonance imaging at 3 T: oncological applications.
  • The gain in signal-to-noise ratio at 3 T magnetic resonance (MR) imaging produces many benefits for abdominal imaging applications, including the capability to reduce acquisition times and/or improve spatial resolution for a variety of pulse sequences, the potential for broader application of parallel imaging techniques, and an increased sensitivity to gadolinium-based contrast media.
  • These advances have the potential of improving the accuracy of MR imaging in the detection, staging, treatment planning, and follow-up of patients with abdominal tumors.
  • At the same time, because certain high-field-strength-related drawbacks could not be compensated for, abdominal 3 T MR imaging should be clinically implemented with caution in some patients (eg, patients with massive ascites).

  • [Title] Reduction of respiratory liver tumor motion by abdominal compression in stereotactic body frame, analyzed by tracking fiducial markers implanted in liver.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate in a three-dimensional framework the effectiveness and reproducibility of reducing the respiratory motion of liver tumors using abdominal compression in a stereotactic body frame.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: A total of 12 patients with liver tumors, who were treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy, were included in this study.
  • These patients had three gold fiducial markers implanted in the healthy liver tissue surrounding the tumor.
  • Fluoroscopic videos were acquired on the planning day and before each treatment fraction to visualize the motion of the fiducial markers during free breathing and varying levels of abdominal compression.
  • RESULTS: Abdominal compression reduced the patient group median excursion by 62% in the craniocaudal and 38% in the anteroposterior direction with respect to the median free-breathing excursions.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Abdominal compression effectively reduced liver tumor motion, yielding small and reproducible excursions in three dimensions.

  • Careful reevaluation together with extensive review of the literature and comparison of related cases established the diagnosis after treatment failure and tumor progression.
  • The tumor was large and firm with some small cysts and showed pseudorosettes with strong glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) expression.
  • In conclusion, primary extraneural ependymomas have to be included into the differential diagnosis of abdominal tumors with pseudorosette-formation, even in unusual sites, and GFAP-immunohistochemistry (IHC) supports the diagnosis.

  • In this article we detail some questions related to managing the treatment of mobile tumors, that is, those tumors that shift with respiratory movements, integrating movement into the plan of treatment.
  • This fact complicates the administration of high doses of radiotherapy since, in such cases, the radiation margin must be wider than that required by the tumor itself, representing a greater risk to surrounding healthy tissue.
  • In gating we capture the tumor and other organs at risk at a specific moment in the breathing cycle, while in tracking we trace the tumor and the organs at risk throughout the breathing cycle.
  • The tumors with which these strategies have been most employed are those of the lung, breast and lymphomas, and less frequently with some abdominal tumors such as pancreas, liver and prostate.

  • [Title] Indications for tomotherapy/intensity-modulated radiation therapy in paediatric radiotherapy: extracranial disease.
  • IMRT/tomotherapy was considered advantageous for (i) small abdominal tumours, compared with parallel opposed or single portal technology using a conventional linear accelerator, and (ii) re-treatment of an ethmoidal sarcoma, but not for palliation of a small spinal metastasis, or therapy for a whole deep cervical node chain or a pelvic side wall tumour in a young child.
  • The dose conformality advantages of IMRT/tomotherapy are sufficient to selectively recommend its availability to the paediatric practice in accordance to the following criteria: (i) where conformality of radiation therapy to the target/tumour is critical and where the margin of safety (from gross/clinical target volume to planning target volume (PTV)) around the tumour is narrow;.
  • (ii) where adjacent organs at risk of radiation damage have a low threshold for damage; and (iii) where the "low-dose bath" phenomenon, which occurs between the upper and lower axial limits of the PTV, is not sufficiently disadvantageous (with regard to late oncogenesis or growth retardation) to outweigh the more confined (non-tumour) integral doses received in higher dose corridors through the body when utilizing conventional radiation techniques.
