  • [Title] Reconstruction of the abdominal wall by using a combination of the human acellular dermal matrix implant and an interpositional omentum flap after extensive tumor resection in patients with abdominal wall neoplasm: a preliminary result.
  • AIM: To present our trial using a combination of the human acellular dermal matrix (HADM) implant and an interpositional omentum flap to repair giant abdominal wall defects after extensive tumor resection.
  • METHODS: Between February and October of 2007, three patients with giant defects of the abdominal wall after extensive tumor resection underwent reconstruction with a combination of HADM and omentum flap.
  • RESULTS: The abdominal wall reconstruction was successful in these three patients, there was no severe morbidity and no signs of herniation in the follow-up period.
  • CONCLUSION: The combination of HADM and omentum flap offers a new, safe and effective alternative to traditional forms in the repair of giant abdominal wall defects.

  • BACKGROUND: The treatment of abdominal wall neoplasm continues to present a challenging problem because it is not easy to repair the giant defect which is resulted from extensive tumor excision.
  • Some techniques and materials have been reported, but most report a certain technique or material for abdominal wall reconstruction.
  • METHODS: We studied 27 patients undergoing immediate abdominal wall reconstruction between 1999 and 2008 who sought care for major defects after extensive tumor excision of malignancy.
  • RESULTS: The immediate abdominal wall reconstruction was successful in all patients.
  • For type III defects, the resulting full-thickness defect will require a myocutaneous flap, such as the tensor fascia lata flap, with or without a mesh for abdominal wall reconstruction.

  • [Transliterated title] Open vacuum-pack, técnica ideal del cierre abdominal temporal diferido en las complicaciones tras cirugía citorreductora y quimioterapia intraperitoneal con hipertermia por carcinomatosis peritoneal.
  • INTRODUCTION: The use of a new therapeutic alternative involving cytoreductive surgery with perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy in the treatment of patients suffering from peritoneal carcinomatosis represents a new challenge for the multidisciplinary teams caring for these patients.
  • In this presentation we explain the special characteristics of these patients compared to the usual surgical patients, the possible physiopathological mechanisms which may give rise to the different types of complications, the circumstances when a temporary abdominal closure is necessary, the ideal conditions required for an optimal technique, and finally our experience with the open vacuum abdomen technique in the treatment of the complications that appear in patients treated by this new triple combined therapy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Based on our personal experience in the treatment of 110 cytoreductions carried out between February 1997 and February 2007 on 71 patients suffering from peritoneal carcinomatosis of various origins.
  • The abdominal situation made a temporary closure desirable in 17 patients, having applied an open vacuum abdomen technique on every occasion.
  • We study this group of patients according their original type of tumour and stage of the disease at the cytoreductive procedure, peritonectomies and visceral resections required, type of postoperative complications, treatment applied and evolution.
  • RESULTS: A total of 52 open vacuum abdomen procedures were required (median, 2.8 per patient; range, 1-10) before the abdominal complication could be completely kept under control in these 17 patients.
  • Only 2 postoperative intestinal fistulas were directly related to this technique, and a primary closure of the whole abdominal wall was possible in 11 of these patients (66%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: As a consequence of this experience, in our opinion, the open vacuum abdomen is the ideal election technique to be employed in any temporary closure of the abdominal cavity for whatever reason it is required, including the worst possible surgical scenario, as we have demonstrated in the treatment of surgical complications after cytoreductive procedures and intraperitoneal chemohyperthermia.

  • [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.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Primary neoplasms of peritoneal and sub-peritoneal origin: CT findings.
  • Peritoneal carcinomatosis is a common metastatic manifestation of many organ-based malignancies, particularly carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract and ovaries.
  • Primary neoplasms of peritoneal and sub-peritoneal origin occur much less frequently than metastatic peritoneal involvement from a known or occult primary tumor; however, these rare primary lesions (peritoneal mesothelioma, papillary serous carcinoma, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, benign and malignant mesenchymal tumors, lymphoproliferative disorders) are often first detected at computed tomography (CT) and should be considered in the absence of a known or suspected organ-based malignancy.
  • A precise diagnosis based on imaging findings alone is often not possible.
  • Nevertheless, CT features combined with the patient's relevant clinical and demographic data can help narrow the differential diagnosis for a peritoneum-based neoplasm in many cases.
  • CT is useful not only for the detection, characterization, and staging of primary neoplasms of peritoneal and subperitoneal origin, but also for guiding biopsy for tissue diagnosis.

  • A 59-year-old, healthy Croatian presented with a slowly growing tumor in the left lower abdomen, which was slightly painful on compression.
  • MRI of the abdomen (T1w, fat saturated, and iv-contrast) shows a diffuse contrast enhancing mass of the left abdominal wall (Figure 1a, arrow) with infiltration of the peritoneal cavity (Figure 1b, arrow).
  • Because a malignant process was suspected the patient underwent abdominal surgery and excision of the tumor.
  • Histopathological examination showed chronic-fibrosing and granulocytic, abscess-forming inflammation with Gram- and PAS-positive bacteria, corresponding to the diagnosis of chronic actinomycosis (Figure 1c).
  • Actinomycosis is a rare, chronic granulomatous disease, which affects most commonly the cervicofacial and abdominal area.
  • Because of its rarity and non-specific symptoms, abdominal actinomycosis is usually diagnosed postoperatively since most patients undergo exploratory laparotomy for a suspected neoplasm.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Rectus abdominis muscle resection for abdominal wall recurrence of mucinous adenocarcinoma or peritoneal mesothelioma.
  • AIMS AND BACKGROUND: Diagnostic technologies which penetrate the abdominal wall in an attempt to definitively diagnose an intraabdominal malignancy by biopsy can contaminate the abdominal wall by cancerous cells.
  • With follow-up these entrapped cancer cells may progress as an abdominal wall recurrence of the disease process.
  • Frequently, laparoscopy is the definitive diagnostic study which results in the abdominal wall cancer progression.
  • METHODS: We examined recurrences within the abdominal wall and attempted to establish a surgical approach to this problem which would maximize a functional result and minimize the incidence of disease persistence within the abdominal wall.
  • RESULTS: Eighteen patients with abdominal wall recurrence were studied.
  • Laparoscopy port sites resulted in the abdominal wall disease in eight patients, in four the recurrence was at a previous ostomy site, in three it was in a Pfannenstiel incision and in three it was in a McBurney incision site.
  • This resulted in a complete removal of visible disease that was dissecting along the fibers of the rectus abdominis muscle.
  • CONCLUSIONS: No patients required reoperation for abdominal wall hernia and mesh repair was not used in any of these patients.
  • Disease control within the abdominal wall has been excellent.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] PET/CT detects abdominal wall and port site metastases of colorectal carcinoma.
  • Abdominal wall metastases from colorectal cancer (CRC) may be resected with curative results.
  • Such lesions, often indicators of additional intra-abdominal lesions, may appear in surgical scars, stomas and port site metastases after laparoscope-assisted surgery (LAS).
  • The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the contribution of PET/CT to the diagnosis of recurrent colorectal cancer in the post-operative abdominal wall.
  • 12 of these 120 (10%), were found to have abdominal wall lesions.
  • A total of 16 abdominal wall lesions were detected, located to surgical scars, stomas, drain and laparoscope ports.
  • Additional findings on PET/CT in this group included liver metastases, intra-abdominal lesions and retroperitoneal lymph node involvement.
  • In conclusion, PET/CT appears to be a sensitive tool for the diagnosis of abdominal wall recurrence of CRC.
  • The accuracy of localization afforded by the fused functional and anatomic images makes PET/CT a likely tool for diagnosing abdominal wall lesions, including port site metastases of other aetiologies.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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] Prognostic factors for extra-abdominal and abdominal wall desmoids: a 20-year experience at a single institution.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Previous reports even large studies discussing the prognosis of desmoids have included tumors from intra- and extra-abdominal sites as well as incomplete resection.
  • The purpose of this study was to explore prognostic factors associated with the recurrence free survival (RFS) rate in surgically treated extra-abdominal and abdominal wall desmoids.
  • Of these, 151 patients with extra-abdominal and abdominal wall tumors were retrospectively reviewed.
  • One hundred thirteen patients were referred for the primary tumor and the other 38 for recurrent disease initially treated elsewhere.
  • No patients died of the disease.
  • Admission status, gender, tumor size, margin status, location, and number, were predictors of LR in univariate analysis.
  • Tumor size and margin status were independent prognostic factors in multivariate analysis.
  • Positive margins were predictive of recurrence of primary disease, and also showed a trend for recurrent disease, which was not statistically significant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Regardless of primary or recurrent disease, microscopically negative margins should always be the goal for extra-abdominal desmoids surgery, if no cosmetic defects or function demolition is encountered.
  • Extra-abdominal desmoids deserve more attention and should be treated more aggressively, especially when leaving positive margins.

  • [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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Discordant histology of primary appendiceal adenocarcinoid neoplasms with peritoneal dissemination.
  • BACKGROUND: Adenocarcinoid is a rare appendiceal tumor that shows histologically both epithelial and neuroendocrine components.
  • We observed that some patients have peritoneal dissemination, which shows adenocarcinoma but lacks the neuroendocrine histology.
  • METHODS: Twenty-six patients with peritoneal dissemination from primary appendiceal adenocarcinoid tumors underwent cytoreductive surgery and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
  • The anatomic locations for peritoneal implants were prospectively recorded.
  • The loss of the neuroendocrine tumor type in peritoneal implants was referred to as discordant feature of the adenocarcinoid tumor.
  • RESULTS: In nine of the 26 patients (35%) with a primary adenocarcinoid of the appendix, a loss of the neuroendocrine immunochemical marker was noted in peritoneal implants.
  • Discordant histology between the primary appendiceal adenocarcinoid and the peritoneal implants was statistically significantly associated with an improved survival (p = 0.0262), when patients were treated by cytoreductive surgery and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Discordant histology of the primary appendiceal tumor as compared to the peritoneal lesions occurs frequently in patients with adenocarcinoid.
  • An assessment of neuroendocrine markers in both primary and peritoneal lesions may help in the clinical assessment of this group of patients.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The present case is a 5-year-old boy with an abdominal mass appearing to arise in the mesentery of the small intestine.
  • Because of its unresectability, a generous biopsy was performed and disclosed a MCN with focal complex papillary architecture in the absence of appreciable cytologic atypia or invasion into the wall.
  • Like other MCNs, this tumor had an inhibin-positive, ovarian-like stroma that was nonreactive for estrogen and progesterone receptors.

  • 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.

  • We present an original case of reconstruction of the abdominal wall after full-thickness parietal resection using an anterolateral thigh flap harvested with its aponeurosis; we describe the advantages of this technique which has seldom been used for this indication.
  • A 49-year-old male presented with a recurrent dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans involving the full thickness of the upper anterior abdominal wall; after excision, a 20 x 17 cm full-thickness defect was reconstructed with an omentoplasty, a bi-layered parietal prosthesis, and a fasciocutaneous free flap with its muscular aponeurosis from the anterolateral thigh.
  • There was no tumor recurrence or postoperative incisional hernia.
  • Many reconstructive options have been proposed, but the anterolateral thigh free flap offers the advantage of an integral reconstruction of the abdominal wall without resultant donor site morbidity and with a satisfactory cosmetic result.
  • In our hands, this flap is the ideal choice for reconstruction of the abdominal wall after loss of substance.

  • [Title] Appendiceal neoplasms with peritoneal dissemination: outcomes after cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Appendiceal neoplasms frequently present with peritoneal dissemination (PD) and have a clinical course marked by bowel obstruction and subsequent death.
  • METHODS: A total of 110 cases of PD from proven appendiceal neoplasms treated with IPHC were identified from a prospectively managed database.
  • Tumor samples were classified on pathologic review as disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis (n = 55), peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis (PMCA) with intermediate features (n = 18), PMCA (n = 29), or high-grade nonmucinous lesions (n = 8).
  • When stratified by histology, disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis and intermediate tumors had better 3-year survival rates (77% +/- 7% and 81% +/- 10%) than PMCA and high-grade nonmucinous lesions (35% +/- 10% and 15% +/- 14%; P = .0032 for test of differences between groups).
  • Age at presentation (P = .0134), performance status (P < .0001), time between diagnosis and IPHC (P = .0011), resection status (P = .0044), and length of hyperthermic chemoperfusion (P = .0193) were independently associated with survival.

  • Few studies report on tissue morphology in recurrence of yolk sac tumor.
  • The case of the recurrence of a yolk sac tumor as a spindle cell sarcoma of the abdominal wall is presented.
  • A 27-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to suspicion of an ovarian tumor.
  • Right salpingo-oophorectomy, partial omentectomy, and extirpation of disseminated foci as fertility-preserving surgery was done since the intraoperative pathological diagnosis was yolk sac tumor.
  • Final pathological examination showed a germ cell tumor of which yolk sac tumor formed the major component including a small area that appeared to be immature nerve tissue.
  • Although residual tumor was not less than 1 cm, clinical complete remission was reached after the sixth course of BEP regimen.
  • However, the recurrence of a yolk sac tumor as an unclassified spindle cell sarcoma of the abdominal wall was found about two years after the initial surgery.
  • The mesenchyme-like component of the yolk sac tumor is characterized by spindle cells originating from epithelial elements, and is likely to give rise to a chemoresistant, diversely differentiated sarcoma.
  • This report suggests that the sarcoma reported in the case here also arose when spindle cells of the mesenchyme-like component underwent sarcomatous change during or after chemotherapy, subsequently relapsed as a chemoresistant tumor, and metastasized.

  • The tumor was subcutaneous, 3/3 cm in size, located in the left angle of the incision from the 15 years previously performed cesarean section and freely mobile in relation with the skin and the fascia.
  • The pathological examination clarified the diagnosis by revealing an endometrioma with decidual reaction.
  • Such a condition may be, therefore, evoked before an abdominal wall tumor, even without specific symptoms, even in a 39-years old woman and longtime after the possible causal surgery.

  • [Title] Pitfalls in staging uterine neoplasm with imaging: a review.
  • Technical, patient, and tumor-related characteristics were analyzed to improve further staging of uterine neoplasm with MRI.
  • For endometrial carcinoma staging, contrast-enhanced dynamic imaging appears essential to avoid false-positive findings for deep myometrial invasion by better delineating tumor from normal myometrium.
  • Contrast-enhanced sequences do not improve diagnosis of parametrial or vaginal invasion in cervical cancer.
  • Knowledge of diagnostic criteria is critical to avoid false-negative findings for bladder wall invasion.
  • Higher spatial resolution with dedicated multichannel pelvic phase array coils, smaller fields of view and section thickness, and careful comparison of T2-weighted and contrast-enhanced sequences are strategies that might avoid misinterpretation of pelvic MRI in staging uterine neoplasm.

  • [Title] Brachytherapy technique for abdominal wall metastases of colorectal cancer: ultrasound-guided insertion of applicator needle and a skin preservation method.
  • PURPOSE: To report a technique of interstitial brachytherapy for the treatment of subcutaneous metastatic abdominal wall tumors.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We developed a brachytherapy technique consisting of ultrasound-guided insertion of applicator needles to avoid the organs at risk, such as intestines, and saline injection into the subcutaneous tissue between the tumor and the skin to decrease the skin dose.
  • We encountered three patients with painful metastases from rectal carcinoma in the abdominal wall refractory to external radiotherapy.
  • Long-lasting pain reduction and tumor shrinkage was obtained without early or late complications.
  • CONCLUSION: This interstitial brachytherapy technique seems to be feasible in the treatment of metastatic abdominal wall tumors.

  • [Title] Ascitic fluid cytology of a malignant mixed Müllerian tumor of the peritoneum: a report of two cases with special reference to p53 status.
  • Malignant mixed müllerian tumors (MMMTs) rarely originate in the female peritoneum.
  • Peritoneal MMMT, as well as its uterine or ovarian counterpart, is characterized by biphasic histologic components, including carcinoma of the müllerian type and sarcoma.
  • In ascitic fluid cytology of MMMT, however, the biphasic pattern is less evident than in tissue sections, and heterogeneity of cell differentiation makes the cytologic diagnosis difficult, especially in distinguishing tumor cells from reactive mesothelial cells.
  • Here, we report ascitic fluid cytology for two peritoneal MMMT cases.
  • Immunocytochemistry for p53 was helpful in identifying malignant cells; tumor cells in ascitic fluid smears, as well as carcinomatous cells and sarcomatous cells in tissue sections, showed distinct nuclear immunostaining for p53, whereas mesothelial cells did not.
  • To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report showing p53 overexpression and its genetic background in MMMT of the peritoneum.

  • [Title] [Repair of large abdominal wall defect with pedicle graft of greater omentum and polypropylene mesh].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome of pedicle graft of greater omentum and polypropylene mesh in reconstruction of large defect of abdominal wall caused by surgical incision.
  • METHODS: From 1994 to 2004, 12 cases of large abdominal wall defects were repaired with pedicle graft of greater omentum and polypropylene mesh after removal of abdominal wall tumor; the defect sizes of abdominal wall ranged from 10 cm x 7 cm to 25 cm x 17 cm.
  • RESULTS: The abdominal wall wound in 12 cases were healed by first intention.
  • After a follow-up of 1 to 5 years, no complications of abdominal hernia, infection and intestine obstruction occurred in all patients.
  • CONCLUSION: It is reliable to repair abdominal wall defect caused by surgical incision with pedicle graft of greater omentum and polypropylene mesh instead of peritoneum.

  • Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas is a rare neoplasm reported to have a favourable prognosis because of its slow-growing behaviour.
  • We report a 31-year-old Cambodian woman who presented with abdominal pain and a palpable epigastric mass.
  • Exploratory laparotomy revealed a 5.2 cm well-demarcated tumour in the head of the pancreas, which was treated with Whipple procedure.
  • Microscopically, the tumour showed an extensive solid growth pattern consisting of cells with abundant clear cytoplasm, and papillary areas containing cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm, indicating a clear-cell solid-papillary neoplasm.
  • Perineural and duodenal wall invasion was present.
  • The tumour cells were immunonegative for chromogranin-A and synaptophysin but positive for CD56, cyclin D1, CD10, vimentin, and progesterone receptor.
  • Difficulties are recognized in differentiating clear-cell SPN from "sugar" tumours, metastatic renal cell carcinoma, clear-cell variant of pancreatic endocrine neoplasm and ductal adenocarcinoma.
  • Although a rare neoplasm, it is important to recognize this entity for appropriate management.

  • OBJECTIVE: A review of Eisenhower Army Medical Center's experience using Permacol (Tissue Science Laboratories, Covington, Georgia) for the repair of abdominal wall defects.
  • METHODS: Retrospective review of medical records of patients undergoing abdominal wall reconstruction with Permacol.
  • Indications for surgery included reoperative incisional hernia repair after removal of a infected mesh (3 patients), reconstruction of a fascial defect after resection of an abdominal wall tumor (2 patients), incisional hernia repair in a patient with a previous abdominal wall infection after a primary incisional hernia repair (1 patient), incisional hernia repair in a patient with an ostomy and an open midline wound (1 patient), emergent repair of incisional hernia with strangulated bowel and multiple intra-abdominal abscesses (1 patient), and excision of infected mesh and drainage of intra-abdominal abscess with synchronous repair of the abdominal wall defect (1 patient).
  • This patient developed an abdominal wall abscess 7 months after hernia repair secondary to erosion from a suture.
  • CONCLUSION: Complex reconstruction of the abdominal wall can be associated with a high complication rate.
  • Permacol is a safe and acceptable alternative to prosthetic mesh in the repair of complicated abdominal wall defects.

  • With a diagnosis of a possible recurrence of bile duct cancer, a laparotomy was thus performed.
  • 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] Intramural gallbladder hematoma mimicking gallbladder neoplasm in a 33-year-old male.
  • We report a case of intramural gallbladder hematoma mimicking gallbladder neoplasm in a 33-year-old male; bleeding was confined to the gallbladder wall without rupture into the lumen.
  • The patient presented with sudden onset of right upper quadrant pain, with no history of abdominal trauma.
  • Abdominal sonography, computed tomography, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography all revealed the presence of a mass lesion in the gallbladder wall.
  • Thus, a gallbladder tumor was highly suspected.

  • Although infiltration of the gallbladder by lymphoma is rare, it has to be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with cholecystitis-like symptoms.
  • We describe a 75-year-old patient who presented with an acute cholecystitis-like picture, featuring chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with gallbladder wall involvement as the initial disease presentation.
  • The cholecystectomy specimen showed perineural invasion present within the gallbladder wall, which likely accounted for the patient's right upper quadrant abdominal tenderness.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Resection of the abdominal inferior vena cava for complicated renal cell carcinoma with tumour thrombus.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience of excising the inferior vena cava (IVC) without a graft; en bloc resection of a renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with the renal vein and vena cava tumour thrombus and a segment of the entire abdominal IVC is technically feasible, but traditionally, after resection, attempts are made to restore continuity with the use of synthetic or homologous venous grafts.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 1997 and September 2004, 60 patients (mean age 62 years) underwent surgical resection of a renal tumour with a thrombus extending into the IVC.
  • To resect the entire evident tumour, excision of the affected portion of the IVC was required in three patients (5%); the IVC was not reconstructed.
  • Occasionally the thrombus invades the wall of the IVC and complete removal requires excision of a circumferential portion of the IVC; this can be done safely without a graft.

  • [Title] Thoracoabdominal wall tumour seeding after percutaneous radiofrequency ablation for recurrent colorectal liver metastatic lesion: a case report with a brief literature review.
  • Percutaneous access of neoplastic liver tissue is the most common access and electrodes are placed with imaging guidance into the tumour to be ablated.
  • Tumour dissemination related to the percutaneous access seems to be very unusual.
  • Herein, we present a rare case of thoracoabdominal tumour wall dissemination after RFA of a recurrent hepatic colorectal metastasis previously removed by surgery.
  • A 64-year-old man with a recurrent hepatic metastatic lesion was treated with internally cooled radiofrequency (RF) for ablation of a 3x3 cm in size tumour mass.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the upper abdomen and carcinoembryonic (CEA) antigen were used for estimation of the disease progression in the patient's follow-up.
  • Ten months after RFA the patient presented abdominal pain and a mass appeared on the right thoracoabdominal area with simultaneous lung metastases.
  • In conclusion, a large size, bulky and superficial mass on the liver parenchyma adjacent to the thoracoabdominal wall as well as multiple RFA sessions, seem to represent risk factors for tumour dissemination through the needle electrode used during the RFA procedure in hepatic metastases of colorectal cancer.

  • 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.

  • [Title] [Use of allogenic acellular dermal matrix in abdominal wall hernia and defect repair in 31 cases].
  • OBJECTIVE: To summarize the clinical effect of allogenic acellular dermal matrix in repair of abdominal wall hernia and defect.
  • METHODS: The clinical data were analyzed retrospectively from 31 patients with abdominal wall hernia and defect repaired by allogenic acellular dermal matrix between March 2007 and November 2009.
  • There were 19 males and 12 females with an age range of 10-70 years (median, 42 years), including 6 abdominal wall defects caused by abdominal wall tumor resection, 4 patches infection after abdominal wall hernia repair using prosthetic mesh, 2 incisional hernia, 1 parastomal hernia, 1 recurrent parastomal hernia receiving mesh repair, 1 mesh infection caused by parastomal hernia repair using prosthetic patch, 3 mesh infection caused by tension free inguinal after hernia repair, and 13 inguinal hernia.
  • The disease duration was from 1 to 34 months (6 months on average).
  • The defect size of abdominal wall ranged from 6 cm x 4 cm to 19 cm x 10 cm.
  • Abdominal wall hernia or defect underwent repair using allogenic acellular dewall matrix.
  • All the 31 patients were followed up 6-36 months, no abdominal wall hernia or hernia recurrence occurred in other patients except 1 patient who had abdominal bulge.
  • CONCLUSION: It is feasible and safe to use allergenic acellular dermal matrix patch for repair of abdominal wall hernia or soft tissue defect, especially in contaminated or infectious wound.

  • We report a rare case of an intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) with a pancreatobiliary-type carcinoma in situ (CIS) that originated around a mural nodule formed in a gastric-type adenoma.
  • A 64-year-old man was admitted to our hospital in December 2001 for dilation of the main pancreatic duct, detected on abdominal ultrasonography.
  • In 2006, computed tomography scans revealed thickening of the tumor wall and the development of a mural nodule (diameter approximately 6 mm); pancreatoduodenectomy with regional lymph-node dissection was performed.
  • Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining revealed that most of the tumor components, including the mural nodule, had adenomatous changes, indicating the tumor to be of the gastric type; however, immunohistochemistry showed positive MUC2 expression.
  • The patient remained disease-free for 3 years after surgery.

  • [Title] Desmoid tumour involving the abdominal rectus muscle: report of a case.
  • The desmoid tumour (DT) is a quite rare soft tissues neoplasm that lacks metastatic potential.
  • The only radical treatment of this tumour is still the surgical resection carried out far from the tumour borders into the healthy tissues.
  • Nevertheless, when these tumours arise in the abdominal wall, their resection causes wide muscle-fascial defects involving the whole thickness wall and determining serious reconstructive problems.
  • These problems are connected to the use of wide prosthesis that are exposed both to the possible development of visceral adhesions and to the abdominal wall rigidity due to the inclusion in the fibrosis of high quantities of totally non-absorbable material.
  • Its application in filling the wide abdominal muscle-fascial gap gave very satisfying mechanical and esthetical results.

  • [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.

  • We investigated whether intraperitoneal chemotherapy can prevent TCC implantation in a murine model of tumor spillage and whether water irrigation is beneficial.
  • All rats treated with mitomycin had no gross or microscopic evidence of tumor growth anywhere in the peritoneum.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intraperitoneal chemotherapy prevents TCC implantation in a murine model of tumor spillage.
  • Water lavage decreases the tumor burden but it cannot effectively sterilize the peritoneum of tumor.

  • Only 38 female patients with peritoneal WPDM have been reported in the literature, and no uniform treatment recommendation has been established.
  • Exploratory laparotomy identified an ovarian serous cystadenoma and an incidental multifocal peritoneal neoplasm with extensive calcifications.
  • Our patient did not receive adjuvant therapy and was without clinical or radiologic evidence of disease 12 months after diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: WDPM of the peritoneum in women is frequently asymptomatic and associated with an indolent course.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We describe the case of a 54-year-old man with a tumour of the proximal esophagus (cT3-4,N1,M0), who underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) for enteral feeding.
  • The primary tumour was not visible.
  • Histological examination showed an abdominal wall metastasis of the esophageal cancer.
  • Despite subtotal gastrectomy with en-bloc resection of the tumour, distant metastasis developed.
  • About 47 cases of abdominal wall metastases as late complications at the site have been reported until now.
  • The mechanism of tumour spread of PEG site is a subject of controversial discussion.
  • As direct mechanical tumour implantation is the most likely mechanism, an alternative method like operative (laparoscopic) or radiological PEG placement should be considered in cases with advanced, stenotic tumours.

  • Intestinal continuity was reestablished via stapled anastomosis following complete cytoreduction of pelvic disease.
  • The entire pelvic peritoneal defect was covered with subdivided sheets of HA-CMC (6.5 cm x 5.0 cm) using a 'quilting' technique.
  • The abdominal wall incision site was not treated with adhesion preventive measures.
  • At second-look surgery, four-quadrant pelvic (treated area) and abdominal wall (untreated internal control) adhesion scores were assigned using a previously validated scoring system.
  • Statistical analysis for differences in mean pelvic and abdominal wall adhesion scores was performed using Student's t test.
  • Abdominal wall adhesions were noted in 92.9% of patients.
  • In the pelvis, the dorsal peritoneal surfaces were the most common sites of adhesion formation (42.9%).
  • Overall, the mean pelvic (treated) adhesion score was statistically significantly lower (0.91, SD +/- 1.04) than the mean abdominal wall (untreated control) score (5.56, SD +/- 4.55, P = 0.02).

  • A 47-year-old man with acute abdominal pain in the right lower quadrant underwent an appendectomy via McBurney's incision.
  • Five years later, an isolated abdominal wall recurrence occurred within the wound scar of the midline incision.
  • A complete excision of the tumor and the invaded portion of the ileum was performed.
  • The mechanism of abdominal wound recurrence is considered the leakage of carcinoma cells from transected lymph vessels during lymph node dissection, followed by the implantation of these cells into the abdominal wound.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Postoperative intra-abdominal infection increases angiogenesis and tumor recurrence after surgical excision of colon cancer in mice.
  • BACKGROUND: Recent reports have suggested that anastomotic leakage is associated with greater rates of tumor recurrence and cancer-specific mortality after surgery for colorectal cancer.
  • The impact of postoperative intra-abdominal infection on long-term oncologic results, however, is still controversial, and no direct causal relationship has been found between both processes.
  • Our aim was to investigate the influence of postoperative intraabdominal infection on angiogenesis and tumor growth in an animal model of colon cancer.
  • METHODS: Balb/c mice were randomized immediately after injection of 5x10(6) B51LiM cells into the cecal wall into 2 groups: cecal resection without postoperative infection (group 1), and cecal resection with postoperative intra-abdominal infection (group 2).
  • RESULTS: Comparing group 1 with group 2, tumor recurrence was more frequent in animals with intraabdominal infection (65% vs 100%, respectively; P=02).
  • Tumor angiogenesis was also increased in the postoperative infection group.
  • CONCLUSION: We concluded that postoperative intra-abdominal infection increases angiogenesis and tumor recurrence after operative excision of a colon cancer in mice.
