  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Reduction of abdominal wall blood flow by clamping or carbon dioxide insufflation increases tumor growth in the abdominal wall: an experimental study in rats.
  • BACKGROUND: We have previously demonstrated that there is a reduction of blood flow in the abdominal wall in rats insufflated with air concomitant with an increase in tumor growth.
  • The present study was designed to examine whether a reduction of blood flow achieved by clamping or insufflation with carbon dioxide (CO(2)) would increase tumor growth in the abdominal wall.
  • After 9 days, tumor weight and volume were analyzed.
  • Tumor weight (p = 0.028) and volume (p = 0.030) were increased on the clamped side.
  • Tumor weight (p = 0.006) and volume (p = 0.006) were increased in the insufflated group.
  • CONCLUSION: Clamping, as well as CO(2) insufflation, causes a significant reduction of blood flow in the abdominal wall, which seems to increase tumor growth at the same site.

  • A 40-year-old woman was referred to our Department of Surgery because of an abdominal wall mass.
  • Sixteen years earlier, she had undergone surgical resection of an inguinal tumor that had been diagnosed as a hemangiosarcoma.
  • Fourteen months after the initial resection, the tumor recurred locally, and complete resection was performed.
  • Thirteen years after the patient's 3rd operation, a firm mass was detected in the left lower quadrant of the abdominal wall.
  • Microscopic examination showed that this tumor was composed of hypercellular spindle cells and staghorn-shaped blood vessels.
  • Immunohistochemical examination of the tumor showed focal positivity for CD34.
  • Therefore, the tumor was diagnosed as a metastatic hemangiopericytoma with malignant potential.
  • Careful long-term follow-up is required because metastases can develop after an extended disease-free interval.

  • BACKGROUND: In this paper, we report a case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the endometrium (PSCCE) with immunohistochemical and molecular study to evaluate the phenotype and to define the etiopathogenesis of this tumor.
  • Abdominal ultrasonography disclosed the abdominopelvic mass with solid, cystic, and calcified areas.
  • Intraoperative findings showed an enlarged uterus with perforation of its wall.
  • Immunostaining with p53 tumor-suppressor protein showed the mutation of p53 tumor-suppressor protein as a strong nuclear positivity.
  • Molecular study by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of tumor DNA did not show any signal for human papilloma virus (HPV) DNA.
  • CONCLUSION: In summary, unlike the example reported in the literature by others, in the present case we demonstrated that PSCCE is not due to HPV infection, but probably to other pathogenetic mechanisms, which cause a mutation of p53 tumor-suppressor gene.
  • Thus, it is reasonable to conclude that both HPV infection and unclear carcinogenic factors, responsible of p53 tumor-suppressor gene mutation, may cause PSCCE.

  • Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) was first reported in 1989.
  • Generally, DSRCT is considered to be an aggressive malignant neoplasm that mainly occurs in the abdominal cavity and has been often seen in adolescents and young male adults.
  • Among them, 14 had tumors in the abdominal cavity; the other four cases had tumors in the left fossa orbitalis, the root of the tongue, the soft tissue behind the left eyeball, and the abdominal wall (umbilicus).
  • The survival rate of DSRCT patients is disappointing; however, the survival of patients who had resection of the tumor or received comprehensive clinical treatment is satisfactory.

  • [Title] Resistance of tumor interstitial pressure to the penetration of intraperitoneally delivered antibodies into metastatic ovarian tumors.
  • PURPOSE: Despite evidence that regional chemotherapy improves the treatment of metastatic peritoneal ovarian carcinoma, monoclonal antibodies have not shown significant success in i.p. delivery.
  • The present study was designed to address the hypothesis that convective penetration of macromolecular antineoplastic agents depends on a positive pressure difference between the i.p. therapeutic solution and the tumor.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Nude rats with human ovarian xenografts implanted in the abdominal wall were used in experiments to facilitate in vivo measurement of tumor pressure and the treatment of the tumor with i.p. solutions at high pressures.
  • RESULTS: Tumor pressure profiles showed peak pressures of 32 mm Hg with mean pressures (+/- SD, mm Hg) in 12 SKOV3 tumors of 9.7 +/- 8.3 and in 15 OVCAR3 tumors of 12.5 +/- 7.0. I.p. therapeutic dwells at 6 to 8 mm Hg (maximum feasible pressure) showed significantly less penetration of trastuzumab than in adjacent normal muscle.
  • To establish a driving force for convection into the tumor, various maneuvers were attempted to reduce tumor pressure, including treatment with taxanes or prostaglandin E(1), elimination of tumor circulation, and removal of the tumor capsule.
  • Tumor decapsulation decreased the pressure to zero but did not enhance the penetration of antibody.
  • Binding to specific trastuzumab receptors on each tumor was shown to be not a significant barrier to antibody penetration.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results only partially support our hypothesis and imply that the microenvironment of the tumor is in itself a major barrier to delivery of charged macromolecules.

  • The tumor was first thought to be a sarcoma arising from the omentum or mesentery.
  • During surgery, a large tumor was found attached to the inner surface of the abdominal wall and compressing the gastrointestinal tract.
  • On microscopic examination the tumor corresponded to a biphasic synovial sarcoma immunoreactive for cytokeratins (AE1/AE3, 7 and 19), epithelial membrane antigen and carcinoembryonic antigen in the epithelial tumor cells, for E-cadherin especially in their glandular structure, vimentin, CD99, and CD56 in the spindle cell component and for bcl-2 protein.

  • [Title] Multicentric infarcted leiomyoadenomatoid tumor: a case report.
  • Adenomatoid tumor is a benign, usually small lesion that may be found within the wall of fallopian tubes or beneath the uterine serosa near the uterine cornu.
  • It is often accompanied by smooth muscle hypertrophy that may obscure the adenomatoid tumor.
  • We herein report a very unusual case of infarcted leiomyoadenomatoid tumor of the uterus and ovary in a 24-year-old woman who presented with severe lower abdominal pain and masses in the uterus and right ovary.
  • The microscopic appearance often suggested the possibility of a malignant neoplasm due to irregular pseudoinfiltration with atypical cuboidal cells and the paucity of a typical adenomatoid tumor due to infarction, and the presence of epithelial-appearing cells in the hypertrophic smooth muscle bundles that mimicked an infiltrating carcinoma for a leiomyoma or myometrium.

  • [Title] Gigantic recurrent abdominal desmoid tumour: a case report.
  • Deeply seated fibromatosis or desmoid tumour (DT) is a rare entity characterized by benign proliferation of fibroblasts.
  • Although non-malignant, this tumour can be life-threatening due to its invasive property and high recurrence rate.
  • 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.

  • The patient was a 74- year-old male who underwent abdominal ultrasonography and contrast CT because of body-weight lost and poor appetite in June, 2004 and whose lymph node(LN)swelling was seen in the level from the hepatic to the renal hilum.
  • A gastric wall irregularity was also seen.
  • We suspected gastric cancer with LN metastasis and carried out upper gastrointestinal endoscopy.
  • The pathological diagnosis of gastric tumor was poorly-differentiated adenocarcinoma containing por 2, tub 1, and pap.
  • After completion of 1 course of chemotherapy, he complained of intense abdominal pain, so we carried out upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and found perforation in the stomach at the same location as the gastric cancer.
  • The histopathological finding showed disappearance of the cancer cell not only in the stomach but also accessory LN.
  • Because the remnant LN metastasis was seen in the hepatic hilum at abdominal contrast CT after operation, S-1 was administered to the patient as 60 mg/m2/day in ambulant.
  • Now, over 40 months after the operation, the patient has been alive with good performance status and disappearance of LN metastasis.

  • [Title] Staging intra-abdominal desmoid tumors in familial adenomatous polyposis: a search for a uniform approach to a troubling disease.
  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE: To compare the diagnostic performances of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for the detection of recurrent ovarian tumor.
  • METHODS: Thirty-six patients who underwent primary cytoreductive surgery for ovarian carcinoma received both MRI and PET/CT for the evaluation of ovarian tumor recurrence.
  • (1) local pelvic recurrence, (2) peritoneal lesion, (3) lymph nodal metastasis, and (4) distant metastasis.
  • Patient-based and lesion-based analyses were retrospectively performed with the aim of detecting tumor recurrence.
  • These 35 sites consisted of local pelvic recurrence (n = 15), peritoneal lesions (n = 14), lymph nodal metastasis (n = 4), and abdominal wall metastasis (n = 2).
  • In detecting recurrent ovarian tumor, patient-based sensitivity and the accuracy of PET/CT and MRI were 73% and 91% (P < 0.05), and 81% and 89% (P > 0.05), respectively.
  • In detecting peritoneal lesions, overall lesion-based sensitivity and accuracy of PET/CT and MRI for peritoneal lesions were 43% and 86%, and 75% and 94%, respectively (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Magnetic resonance imaging is more sensitive than PET/CT for detecting local pelvic recurrence and peritoneal lesions of recurrent ovarian tumors.

  • [Title] Impact of surgical peritoneal environment on postoperative tumor growth and dissemination in a preimplanted tumor model.
  • BACKGROUND: We recently demonstrated that CO(2) pneumoperitoneum at low intraperitoneal pressure (IPP) had few if any short-term effects on peritoneal dissemination when an ovarian cancer cell line was inoculated just prior to surgery.
  • The objective of the present study was to evaluate the impact of surgical peritoneal environment on postoperative tumor growth and dissemination over time when tumors were present before surgery.
  • RESULTS: Peritoneal dissemination score was significantly higher in the laparotomy group compared with in the remaining three groups on PODs 2 and 7.
  • We detected no significant differences in the peritoneal dissemination scores among the low-IPP, high-IPP, and anesthesia groups on PODs 2 and 7.
  • However, there were no significant differences in the peritoneal dissemination score among the three surgical groups on POD 14.
  • There were no significant differences in tumor growth among the four groups.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present findings suggest that CO(2) pneumoperitoneum at either high or low IPP has few if any short-term effects on peritoneal dissemination when tumors are well established before surgery.

  • Proper distention of the esophagus and stomach (by oral administration of effervescent granules and water) and optimally timed administration of intravenous contrast material are required to detect and characterize disease.
  • In contrast to endoscopy and double-contrast studies of the upper GI tract, CT provides information about both the esophageal wall and the extramural extent of disease.
  • A diagnosis of rupture or fistula of the esophagus can be firmly established using MDCT.
  • Multi-detector CT is a valuable tool for the evaluation of esophageal wall disease and serves as an adjunct to endoscopy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Convective transport of macromolecules from the peritoneal cavity into tumor is determined by its hydraulic permeability and the pressure gradient.
  • Previous studies showed that establishing a pressure gradient into the tumor failed to result in significant penetration.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Human ovarian tumors (SKOV-3 and OVCAR-3) were established in the abdominal wall of athymic rats.
  • After anesthesia, the tumor serosal surface was treated for 2 hours with Krebs solution (control), collagenase (37.5 unit/mL), or hyaluronidase (10 unit/mL) followed by 3 hours of convective delivery of radiolabeled IgG.
  • Transport of antibody into the tumor was measured with quantitative autoradiography along with the tumor interstitial pressure, concentration of collagen and hyaluronic acid, and IgG volume of distribution.
  • RESULTS: Antibody was excluded from 42% to 53% of tumor extracellular volume.
  • Exposure of tumors to hyaluronidase did not enhance IgG transport despite removal of 90% of the hyaluronan from the exposed tumor.
  • In contrast, collagenase reduced collagen content, lowered tumor interstitial pressure, and markedly enhanced antibody penetration.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Reduction of collagen, but not hyaluronan, in the matrix of ovarian xenografts enhanced the transport of i.p. injected antibody.
  • Although high interstitial pressure is a deterrent to convective transport of macromolecules into the tumor parenchyma, the structure of the interstitial matrix provides an inherent resistance, which must be overcome before effective delivery of an antibody.

  • [Title] [A case of gastric cancer with abdominal wall invasion treated by weekly low-dose paclitaxel therapy].
  • Here we report a case of gastric cancer with diffuse abdominal wall invasion treated with weekly low-dose paclitaxel therapy.
  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the diagnosis and treatment of macrocystic serous adenoma of the pancreas (MSAP).
  • RESULTS: Of the 5 patients, 3 patients presented with abdominal pain and fullness, 1 patient with jaundice, 1 patient with asymptomatic.
  • Ultrasonography and CT could manifest macrocystic lesion of the pancreas; all the lesion showed a well-defined border, internal septations, enhanced cyst walls, with no intramural (mural) nodule and papillary projections; the wall was smooth and thin in 4 cases; irregular lobulation could be observed in 3 cases, round or oval in 2 cases; 2 cases had pancreatic duct dilatation, 1 case had biliary duct dilatation.
  • The imaging appearance of MSAP is similar to mucinous cystic neoplasm of the pancreas.
  • The tumor can gradually grow up and produce compression symptoms.

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

  • [Title] Occult tumor cells in pelvic lymph nodes and parametrial tissue of small-sized FIGO IB1 squamous cell carcinomas of the uterine cervix--results of a pilot study.
  • Micrometastases (MM) and occult tumor cell deposits (OTCD) in pelvic tissue may cause recurrences, and immunohistochemistry may improve their detection.
  • We used cytokeratine-immunohistochemistry to investigate 263 pelvic lymph nodes and parametrial tissue for MM and OTCD obtained from eight squamous cell carcinomas (maximum tumor size: 2.5 cm).
  • These patients were treated with radical abdominal hysterectomy (Piver type III) with complete tumor resection without receiving any adjuvant therapy.
  • Three patients developed pelvic side wall and five central tumor recurrences within a median time of 25.9 (range 8-55) months.
  • Therefore, tumor recurrence in those patients appears to be due to occult residual tumor cells that were not resected during the classical Wertheim-Meigs-procedure or that were disseminated during the surgical procedure and persisted in situ.

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

  • Such techniques as endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (N.O.T.E.S.) now raise the prospect of focused intraluminal and transmural resection of small primary tumors without abdominal wall transgression.
  • Sentinel node mapping is one such putative means of doing so that deserves serious consideration from this perspective as it performs a similar function for breast cancer and melanoma and because there is already considerable evidence to suggest the technique in colonic neoplasia may be at its most accurate in germinal disease.
  • While the confluence of operative technologies and techniques now coming on-stream has the potential to precipitate a dramatic shift in the paradigm for the management of early stage colonic neoplasia, considerable confirmatory study is required to ensure that oncology propriety and treatment efficacy is maintained so that patient benefit may be maximized.

  • The presence of portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT) in patients with HCC is one of the most significant factors for a poor prognosis.
  • METHODS: The patient was a 77-year-old woman with well-compensated hepatitis C virus-related cirrhosis (stage A6 according to Child-Pugh classification) who sought care at our department for vague abdominal discomfort.
  • In addition, portal vein tumor thrombosis of the left branch that extended to the right portal vein was present.
  • With this procedure, we were able to examine under direct vision the exact extent of the portal vein thrombus, and we identified whether the tumor thrombus was adherent to the venous wall or was freely floating in the venous lumen.
  • The patient was discharged on postoperative day 6, and she was free of disease at 15 months after surgery.

  • [Title] Abdominal wall abscess associated with perforated jejunal diverticulitis: report of a case.
  • We report a case of abdominal wall abscess caused by diverticulitis of the jejunum penetrating through the abdominal wall.
  • A 53-year-old Japanese woman visited a local hospital complaining of abdominal pain and a mass in the left lower abdomen.
  • An abdominal computed tomography scan showed a tumor with isodensity in the left lower abdominal wall.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging showed a mass in the abdominal wall with isointensity in the T1-intensified image and high intensity in the T2-intensified images.
  • Laparotomy revealed a tumor in the abdominal wall with a fistulous tract extending to the jejunum.
  • We resected the abdominal wall tumor with partial resection of the small intestine.
  • The resected specimen contained a tumor with a fistulous tract passing through the abdominal wall.
  • Histological examination revealed remarkable infiltration of neutrophils and a bacterial mass in the abdominal wall tumor, with a fistulous tract connected to the area adjacent to the mesenteric border of the jejunum.
  • These findings suggested that diverticulitis of the jejunum had penetrated through the abdominal wall, leading to the formation of an abscess.
  • We report this case to highlight the need for complete gastrointestinal evaluation with gastrointestinal barium studies and imaging analysis to examine extension of intra-abdominal lesions in patients with an unexplained abdominal wall abscess.

  • [Title] Incidence of abdominal wall metastasis complicating PEG tube placement in untreated head and neck cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall metastasis after PEG tube placement has been reported in patients with head and neck cancer.
  • OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the incidence of abdominal wall metastasis as a complication of PEG tube placement in patients with head and neck cancer.
  • RESULTS: Of the 304 patients with head and neck cancer, 218 had active disease with a viable tumor in the oropharynx or hypopharynx at the time of PEG placement.
  • Two of these patients, both with active disease (0.92%), developed a PEG site metastasis.
  • CONCLUSION: There is a small but definite risk for tumor implantation in the gastrostomy site when using the pull technique in patients with active head and neck cancer.
  • Use of other percutaneous techniques that do not involve traversing the hypopharynx with the catheter may help to prevent tumor translocation.

  • [Title] Comparative analysis of peritoneum and tumor eicosanoids and pathways in advanced ovarian cancer.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We first employed electrospray tandem mass spectrometry to determine tissue-specific concentrations of the eicosanoids prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), the hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids (12-HETE and 5-HETE), and leukotriene (LTB4), selected for tumor growth potential, and two other bioactive lipids (15-HETE and 13-HODE) with tumor cell proliferation interference potential.
  • Tissues used included EOC tumor, tumor-free malignant peritoneum (MP), and benign peritoneum (BP) from patients with benign pelvic disease.
  • RESULTS: (a) Eicosanoid products were detected in tumor, MP, and BP specimens.
  • Neither 15-HETE nor 13-HODE showed a significant opposite trend toward levels found in BP. (b) Tissue specimens representing common EOC histotypes showed strong coexpressions of cyclooxygenases (COX-1) and prostaglandin E synthases (PGES-1) on tumor cells, whereas intratumoral or peritumoral MO/MA coexpressed COX-1 and COX-2 and PGES-1 and PGES-2, respectively. (c) cDNA microarray analysis of MP, BP, and tumor showed that a number of eicosanoid and arachidonic acid pathway genes were differentially expressed in MP and BP compared with tumor, except for CYP2J2, which was increased in tumors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Elevated levels of eicosanoid metabolites in tumors and differential expression of eicosanoid and arachidonic acid pathway genes in the peritoneum support the involvement of bioactive lipids in the inflammatory tumor environment of EOC.

  • [Title] Intensity modulated radiation-therapy for preoperative posterior abdominal wall irradiation of retroperitoneal liposarcomas.
  • PURPOSE: Preoperative external-beam radiation therapy (preop RT) in the management of Retroperitoneal Liposarcomas (RPLS) typically involves the delivery of radiation to the entire tumor mass: yet this may not be necessary.
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new strategy of preop RT for RPLS in which the target volume is limited to the contact area between the tumoral mass and the posterior abdominal wall.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Between June 2000 and Jan 2005, 18 patients with the diagnosis of RPLS have been treated following a pilot protocol of pre-op RT, 50 Gy in 25 fractions of 2 Gy/day.
  • The Clinical Target Volume (CTV) has been limited to the posterior abdominal wall, region at higher risk for local relapse.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our strategy of preop RT is feasible and well tolerated: the rate of resectability is not compromised by limiting the preop CTV to the posterior abdominal wall and a better critical-structures sparing is obtained with IMRT.

  • OBJECTIVE: To detect the expression of IGFBP-2 mRNA in gastric cancer tissues and its roles in neoplasia and peritoneal metastasis of gastric cancer.
  • METHODS: The IGFBP-2 mRNA expression levels in the fresh tissues from normal mucosa, primary cancer and peritoneal metastasis of 35 patients with gastric cancer were determined by the quantitative real time RT-PCR method, and the samples were sliced up and stained with hematoxylin-eosin for pathologyical examination.
  • RESULTS: The levels of IGFBP-2 mRNA expression in gastric primary cancer tissues were significantly higher than those in the tissues from normal mucosa and peritoneal metastasis (P<0.05).
  • Yet, IGFBP-2 mRNA expression levels showed no difference between the tissues of normal mucosa and peritoneal metastasis (P>0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: The expression of IGFBP-2 mRNA possibly plays an important role in proliferation, differentiation and peritoneal metastasis of gastric cancer, and it might be useful in a new method for clinical prognostication and treatment of gastric cancer peritoneal metastasis.

  • [Title] Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms: clinicopathologic study of 116 cases with analysis of factors predicting recurrence.
  • The classification and nomenclature of appendiceal mucinous neoplasms are controversial.
  • To determine the outcome for patients with appendiceal mucinous neoplasms and further evaluate whether they can be stratified into groups that provide prognostic information, the clinicopathologic features of 116 patients (66 with clinical follow-up) with appendiceal mucinous neoplasms were studied.
  • All 16 patients with mucinous neoplasms confined to the appendix and lacking high-grade cytology, architectural complexity, and invasion were alive with no recurrences at median 59 months follow-up (=mucinous adenoma).
  • One of 14 patients with low-grade cytology and acellular peritoneal mucin deposits developed recurrent tumor within the peritoneum at 45 months with no patient deaths to date (median, 48-mo follow-up) (=low-grade mucinous neoplasm with low risk of recurrence).
  • None of the 2 patients with acellular peritoneal mucinous deposits outside of the right lower quadrant developed recurrence at 163 and 206 months.
  • Twenty-seven patients with low-grade mucinous neoplasms with extra-appendiceal neoplastic epithelium had 1-year, 3-year, 5-year, and 10-year overall survival rates of 96%, 91%, 79%, and 46%, respectively, at median 53 months follow-up (=low-grade mucinous neoplasm with high risk of recurrence).
  • Three of the 4 patients with extra-appendiceal epithelium limited to the right lower quadrant developed full-blown peritoneal disease at 6, 41, and 99 months follow-up and 1 patient eventually died of disease.
  • Nine patients with appendiceal neoplasms with invasion or high-grade cytology and follow-up showed 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year overall survival rates of 86%, 57%, and 28% (=mucinous adenocarcinoma).
  • Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms can be stratified into 4 distinct risk groups on the basis of a careful histopathologic assessment of cytoarchitectural features and extent of disease at presentation.

  • BACKGROUND & AIMS: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas arising in branch ducts are thought to be less aggressive than their main-duct counterparts, and guidelines for their conservative management were recently proposed.
  • Jaundice was more frequent in patients with cancer (12.5% vs 1.8%, respectively, P = .022) and abdominal pain in patients with benign tumors (45% vs 25%, respectively, P = .025).
  • Findings associated with malignancy were the presence of a thick wall (P < .001), nodules (P < .001), and tumor diameter >or=30 mm (P < .001).
  • All neoplasms with cancer were larger than 30 mm in size or had nodules or caused symptoms.
  • After a mean follow-up of 45 months, the 5-year disease-specific survival for branch-duct IPMNs with noninvasive neoplasms was 100% and, for invasive cancer, was 63%.

  • [Title] The surgical management of soft tissue tumours arising in the abdominal wall.
  • BACKGROUND: Soft-tissue tumours can occur at almost any site, including the abdominal wall and represent a biologically diverse group of benign and malignant tumours.
  • METHODS: A prospectively-kept database was searched to identify all patients with tumours resected that involved the abdominal wall.
  • The histological diagnosis, complication rates and local recurrence rates were reported.
  • Kaplan-Meier analysis of prognostic factors was determined for patients with primary abdominal wall sarcomas.
  • RESULTS: Ninety-two patients underwent resection for tumours involving the abdominal wall.
  • Of 92 patients undergoing resection 87 required reconstruction of the abdominal wall defect with polypropelene mesh but only 2 patients required reconstruction of the overlying skin.
  • There were no immediate surgical complications in patients who underwent isolated abdominal wall reconstruction and the long term incision hernia rate was 4%.
  • Kaplan-Meier analysis for patients with primary abdominal wall sarcomas showed that local recurrence was higher in tumours>10cm (p=0.0024) and in high grade tumours (p=0.0021).
  • Disease-specific survival was worst in high grade tumours (p=0.0010) and tumours>10cm (p=0.0042).
  • Desmoid tumours did not recur in any patient after abdominal wall resection, irrespective of microscopic margins.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumours involving the abdominal wall exhibit a wide range of pathologies.
  • Abdominal wall reconstruction can be achieved in the vast majority of cases with mesh reconstruction alone with little surgical morbidity.
  • Abdominal wall fibromatosis carries a better prognosis than fibromatosis arising in the extremities.

  • [Title] Heterotopic gastrointestinal mucosa and pancreatic tissue in a retroperitoneal tumor.
  • We believe that this is the first report of a retroperitoneal tumor consisting of heterotopic gastrointestinal mucosa and pancreatic tissue.
  • Abdominal computerized tomography demonstrated a 3.1 x 2.5 x 3.2-cm low-density solid and cystic lesion adjoining the left renal vein between the aorta and inferior vena cava.
  • Angiography revealed that the inferior vena cava was displaced by the hypovascular tumor.
  • The retroperitoneal lesion was diagnosed preoperatively as a benign tumor such as a neurogenic neoplasm or lymphangioma.
  • At laparotomy, a cystic tumor was found, which existed behind the inferior vena cava and renal vessels, and contained reddish-brown fluid, suggesting hemorrhage in the past.
  • The cut surface of the tumor showed a unilocular cyst with partially hypertrophic wall.
  • Histopathological examination revealed a cystic tumor lined with heterotopic gastric and duodenal mucosa, with pancreatic tissue in the muscularis propria.
  • In addition, evidence of bleeding from the gastric mucosa was observed in the cystic tumor.
  • External secretion from these tissues could have triggered the hemorrhage and expanded the tumor, possibly resulting in the back pain.

  • [Title] Assessment of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and elevated carcinoembryonic antigen level: FDG PET/CT versus contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest and abdomen.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare FDG PET/CT and contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis in the detection of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and an elevated level of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis included 50 patients (31 men, 19 women; mean age, 61 years; range, 28-89 years) with 55 clinical events of elevated or increasing CEA level who underwent FDG PET/CT and MDCT for suspected tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Recurrent or metastatic disease was found in 36 of 55 events (65.5%) of elevated CEA.
  • Fifty-four of 61 tumor sites suspected as tumor recurrence with any imaging technique were found to be local recurrence or metastatic colorectal cancer at final analysis.
  • The other seven sites were one separate malignant tumor (small lymphocytic lymphoma) and six benign lesions.
  • Diagnosis was based on histopathologic findings (n = 27) or clinical and imaging findings (n = 35) during a median follow-up period of 12 months (range, 6-31 months).
  • One site of tumor recurrence was missed prospectively at both MDCT and PET/CT.
  • In a tumor site-based analysis, the sensitivities of PET/CT and MDCT were 98.1% and 66.7% (p < 0.0001), and the specificities were 75% and 62.5% (p = 0.56).
  • Tumors correctly identified with PET/CT and missed with MDCT were local recurrence in the presacral space (n = 5), metastatic subcentimeter lymph nodes (n = 4), peritoneal deposits (n = 3), and recurrences at the periphery of radiofrequency ablated metastatic lesions of the liver (n = 2) and in the abdominal wall (n = 1), liver (n = 1), and uterine cervix (n = 1).
  • CONCLUSION: FDG PET/CT has higher sensitivity than MDCT in the identification of sites of recurrent and metastatic disease in patients with colorectal cancer and an elevated CEA level.

  • Matching 41 obese patients treated by laparoscopy with 29 obese patients with endometrial cancer treated by laparotomy, hospital stay was shorter in the laparoscopic group (3.8 [2-8] vs 7.4 days [5-10] p < 0.001) and pelvic nodes (16.3 [3-50] vs 11.5 [2-34]), operative time (149.9 [80-300] vs 167.9 minutes [60-390]) and disease-free survival (93 vs 80 %) were similar.
  • For obese patients with stage I endometrial adenocarcinoma, laparoscopic approach should be first choice because of similar operative complications and pelvic nodes, shorter hospital stay and less abdominal wall morbidity associated with lower risk to delay adjuvant radiotherapy.

  • BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer is a frequent disease in Norway.
  • Accurate preoperative assessment of tumour extent is essential for choosing the appropriate therapeutic strategy, and thus for patient prognosis.
  • RESULTS AND INTERPRETATION: Recto-/colonoscopy with biopsy is still the most common approach for diagnosis.
  • It provides an accurate evaluation of the bowel, of tumour invasion outside the bowel wall and of extracolonic (glandula- and liver-) metastases.
  • Double-contrast barium enema, or abdominal and pelvic CT are alternative methods for evaluation of colon cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We describe the first case of a serous borderline paratubal tumor with a review of the literature on paratubal and tubal low malignant potential tumors.
  • Abdominal and pelvic CT revealed 12.5 cm cystic ovarian mass and she was admitted for pain control.
  • Inspection of the cyst wall demonstrated multiple papillary excrescences and frozen section returned at least borderline fallopian tube neoplasm.
  • After a fertility-sparing comprehensive surgical staging procedure was performed, she was diagnosed with stage IC fallopian tube serous borderline tumor and underwent no further therapy.
  • Currently, she is without evidence of disease recurrence.
  • CONCLUSION: Borderline fallopian tube or paratubal tumors are usually early stage at diagnosis and commonly present in the third decade with pain or are discovered on routine examination.
  • Continued reporting of these tumors is essential to understanding the prognosis and treatment of this rare tumor.

  • PURPOSE: To investigate the utility of multidetector CT (MDCT) in the diagnosis of gastric bare area (GBA) invasion by proximal gastric carcinoma (PGC).
  • Each postsurgical stomach specimen was axially sectioned and comparison was made to determine the correlation between the CT findings and the pathological examination of each tumor bearing slice.
  • 33/36 (92%) patients with tumor extension within the edge of the gastric wall and 28/32 (88%) patients with tumor infiltration into subphrenic fat were correctly identified.
  • MDCT correctly predicted the infiltration of tumor into the diaphragm in all 14 patients and identified 6/11 (55%) patients with gastrophrenic ligament invasion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The aim was to review a single-institution experience of a prospective treatment protocol for soft tissue sarcoma of the extremity and trunk wall, with particular focus on the smallest surgical margin leading to local control.
  • Resection margins were measured prospectively from tumour specimens.
  • Radiotherapy was administered if the smallest margin measured less than 2.5 cm, irrespective of tumour grade.

  • Besides the oncologic advantages of an early vessel division and a "no-touch" dissection, we feel that the longer the lateral abdominal wall attachments of the colon are preserved, the better the exposure and the easier the dissection.
  • During the follow-up periods (median: 30 months, range 6-55 months), recurrence of tumor developed in 6 (10.7%) of stage II and 10 (20.8%) of stage III patients, with liver metastasis in six patients, lung metastasis in 4, liver and lung metastasis in 1, intraperitoneal recurrence in 2, bone metastasis in 1, brain metastasis in 1, and port-site recurrence in 1.
