  • : Endometriosis of the vermiform appendix is a rare condition.
  • The author herein reports a case of appendiceal endometriosis presenting as a tumor at the appendiceal oriffice.
  • A colon endoscopy showed a tumor in the appendiceal orifice.
  • Two biopsies of the tumor showed no remarkable changes.
  • Imaging modalities including CT and MRI also revealed an appendiceal tumor.
  • Resection of appendix, cecum, ascending colon, terminal ileum, and 16 lymph nodes were performed under the clinical diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumor.
  • Grossly, a tumor measuring 3 x 3 x 3 cm was recognized in the appendiceral orifice.
  • Histologically, the tumor was endometriosis consisting of islands of endometrial glands and stroma.
  • The present case suggests that appendiceal endometriosis may present as a tumor.

  • [Title] Survival and health outcomes after cytoreductive surgery with intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy for disseminated peritoneal cancer of appendiceal origin.
  • BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery with intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy for peritoneal carcinomatosis of appendiceal origin can alleviate symptoms and prolong survival.
  • METHODS: Patients underwent cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy for peritoneal cancer.
  • Patients completed questionnaires consisting of demographic information and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy, the SF-36 Medical Outcomes Study survey, the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale, and the ECOG Performance Status Rating before (T1) and after surgery at 3 (T2), 6 (T3), 12 (T4), and 24 (T5) months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although complications can affect short-term recovery, survival in appendix cancer patients with peritoneal cancer is good and for some can be achieved without major decrements in QOL at 1 year.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : e16540 Background: Pseudomyxoma peritonei occurs mostly in conjunction with the type of intestinal mucinous borderline tumour and is characterized by building up a lot of mucus pour of cells.
  • The most common tumor is the pseudomyxoma peritoneii with mucinous borderline tumours of the ovaries or with mucinous tumours of the appendix, normally without showing a rupture of the ovarian tumour pre- or intraoperatively.
  • The diagnosis of pseudomyxoma peritonei is mainly difficult and guidelines for the treatment are unknown.
  • METHODS: In the period from 1991 to 2008, 52 patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei were treated by tumour debulking and intraoperative and intraperitoneal chemotherapy with Mitoxantron (40 mg in 300 ml of NaCl over 72 hours).
  • During the tumour debulking a CUSA system was used.
  • There were the following histologies: mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary n = 29, mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix n = 10, mucinous cystadenocarcinoma n = 13.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The instillation of mitoxantron intraperitoneally and intraoperatively is an effective and safe therapy without any side effects after maximal tumour debulking of pseudomyxoma peritoneii.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Patients with liver metastases not qualifying for surgery were treated with single session radiosurgery (24 Gy) using robotic image-guided real-time tumor tracking.
  • For inclusion into the radiosurgery treatment protocol, tumor volumes had to be smaller than 80cc.
  • Metastases (n=27) originated from: colon (12), rectum (2), pancreas (2), lung (1), bladder (2), malignant melanoma (1), stomach (1), cholangiocellular carcinoma (2), breast (1), ovary (1), appendix (1) and endometrium (1).
  • Median tumor volume was 21cc (range 2.2-79.3).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic radiosurgery with image-guided real-time tumor tracking of liver metastases is a new and promising treatment approach for pts not eligible for surgical resection and might enhance the possibilities of multidisciplinary oncological treatment concepts.

  • [Title] Adenocarcinoma of the appendix is rarely detected by colonoscopy.
  • INTRODUCTION: Appendiceal tumors represent a subset of colonic neoplasms that frequently defy early diagnosis only to present at advanced stage with peritoneal metastasis.
  • The aim of this study is to determine the diagnostic yield of colonoscopy in detecting appendiceal lesions in patients with appendiceal adenocarcinoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei.
  • METHODS: We reviewed clinicopathologic data on 121 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed appendiceal adenocarcinoma with pseudomyxoma peritonei presenting to our institution for intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy (IPHC) and cytoreductive surgery between February, 1993 and August, 2007, focusing on the colonoscopy findings.
  • Abnormal findings included seven patients with appendiceal lesions (11%), 12 patients with cecal abnormalities (19%), and 28 patients with polyps (44%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Appendiceal abnormalities are infrequently seen on colonoscopy and rarely yield a diagnostic biopsy in patients with appendiceal carcinoma.
  • We found that nearly 42% of patients with carcinoma of the appendix have synchronous colonic polyps, a much higher prevalence than would be expected, supporting a role for a perioperative colonoscopy.

  • BACKGROUND: While carcinoma of the colon is a common malignancy, primary carcinoma of the appendix is rare.
  • Many retrospective reviews outlined experience from different centers on appendiceal neoplasms.
  • The aim of this study was to analyze the type of surgery and survival of patients with appendiceal malignancies using data from a German multi-center observational study (31 341 patients).
  • METHODS: During a five-year period, 196 consecutive patients with malignant appendiceal tumors were distributed into four groups: appendiceal carcinoids, adenocarcinoma, mucinous adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma.
  • Carcinoid tumors had lowest tumor size and localized disease was present in 72.9%.
  • Histological subtype and tumor stage significantly affected survival.
  • Among all appendiceal neoplasms, adenosquamous carcinoma is the rarest histological subtype which is most commonly associated with advanced tumor stage and worst prognosis.

  • Torsion of the vermiform appendix is a rare disorder, which causes abdominal symptoms indistinguishable from acute appendicitis.
  • We report a case (a 34-year-old male) of secondary torsion of the vermiform appendix with mucinous cystadenoma.
  • This case was characterized by mild inflammatory responses, pentazocine-resistant abdominal pain, and appendiceal tumor, which was not enhanced by the contrast medium on computed tomography presumably because of reduced blood flow by the torsion.
  • These findings may be helpful for the preoperative diagnosis of secondary appendiceal torsion.

  • [Title] Combined adenocarcinoid and mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Adenocarcinoid of the appendix is a rare malignant tumour with features of both adenocarcinoma and carcinoid, showing both epithelial and endocrine differentiation.
  • Mucinous cystadenoma is the commonest of the benign neoplasms of the appendix, with an incidence of 0.6% in appendicectomy specimens.
  • Laparoscopy revealed an adenocarcinoid of the appendix in combination with mucinous cystadenoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Adenocarcinoids account for 2% of primary appendiceal malignancies.
  • Right hemicolectomy is generally advised if any of the following features are present: tumours greater than 2 cm, involvement of resection margins, greater than 2 mitoses/10 high-power fields on histology, extension of tumour beyond serosa.

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are rare in the vermiform appendix.
  • Here, we report 2 appendiceal gastrointestinal stromal tumors in a 78-year-old woman and a 72-year-old man with a history of endometrial adenocarcinoma and urinary bladder carcinoma, respectively.
  • Both gastrointestinal stromal tumors were incidental findings at surgery for appendicitis-like symptoms and on follow-up for bladder carcinoma, respectively.
  • The larger gastrointestinal stromal tumor was pedunculated.
  • We suggest that the molecular pathogenesis of appendiceal gastrointestinal stromal tumors beyond initiating KIT mutations might be different from their gastric and intestinal counterparts.
  • The coincidence of loss of p16 and overexpression of human telomerase reverse transcriptase seems to be in contradiction to the small size, the benign nature, and the limited growth potential of appendiceal gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intussusception of the appendix secondary to endometriosis: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Intussusception of the appendix is an extremely rare condition that ranges from partial invagination of the appendix to involvement of the entire colon.
  • Endometriosis is an exceptionally rare cause of appendiceal intussusception and only very few cases have been reported in the literature to date.
  • Subsequent colonoscopy revealed submucosal endometriotic nodules in the sigmoid as well as a polyp thought to be arising from the appendix, which had inverted itself.
  • At laparotomy, the appendix had intussuscepted but it was possible to reduce it and therefore a simple appendicectomy was carried out.
  • On histology, there were widespread endometrial deposits within the wall of the appendix and this was thought to be the basis for the intussusception.
  • CONCLUSION: Histological evidence of the lead point is of crucial importance in cases of appendiceal intussusception, in order to exclude an underlying neoplastic process.
  • Gastrointestinal endometriosis should be considered as a cause of appendiceal intussusception in post-menarchal women with episodic symptoms and proven disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] VEGF expression predicts survival in patients with peritoneal surface metastases from mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix and colon.
  • BACKGROUND: High levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in ovarian cancer metastases are associated with a worse prognosis in patients treated with chemotherapy.
  • VEGF-directed therapy improves survival for those with metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • Patients with mucinous adenocarcinomas metastatic to the peritoneal surfaces can be treated with cytoreductive surgery, and both tumor grade and cytoreduction status are prognostic.
  • We hypothesized that angiogenic indices may be prognostic in patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery for mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix and colon.
  • RESULTS: A total of 26 males and 9 females, with a mean age of 50 years, underwent cytoreductive surgery and IPHP for mucinous adenocarcinoma of appendiceal (n = 32) or colonic (n = 3) origin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that markers of tumor angiogenesis may predict survival in patients with peritoneal surface metastases from mucinous adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Appendix mass: do we know how to treat it?
  • INTRODUCTION: The traditional management of appendiceal mass has been an initial conservative approach followed by interval appendicectomy.
  • The aim of this study was to review the available scientific evidence and to determine how appendiceal masses are currently being managed in the Mid-Trent region by general surgeons.
  • RESULTS: The results showed that there was difference of opinion on the management of appendix mass in either scenario.
  • Appendectomy (interval or emergency) is still practised by 75% of general surgeons in the Mid-Trent region and less that 25% manage asymptomatic appendix mass without interval appendectomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: At present, there is no agreed consensus on the management of appendiceal mass.

  • [Title] Epithelial neoplasms of the appendix.
  • CONTEXT: The appendix gives rise to an array of epithelial neoplasms showing glandular or neuroendocrine differentiation, and some tumors with elements of both cell types.
  • Although some appendiceal neoplasms resemble their counterparts in the small and large intestines (conventional adenocarcinoma and carcinoid tumor), the appendix also gives rise to relatively unique entities including mucinous neoplasms and goblet cell carcinoid tumors, which present a challenge in pathologic classification and clinical management.
  • OBJECTIVE: To review clinical and diagnostic issues for 3 pathologic types of epithelial neoplasms of the appendix:.
  • (1) adenocarcinoma, with specific focus on mucinous neoplasm;.
  • (2) goblet cell carcinoid tumor and associated adenocarcinoma; and (3) typical carcinoid tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most important issue in pathologic assessment of epithelial tumors of the appendix is to understand the clinical implications inherent in the diagnosis.

  • Acute abdominal pain following laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy (LLDN) might be a diagnostic dilemma, and prompt diagnosis and management is of paramount importance.
  • Herein, we describe a case of acute appendicitis in a 62-year-old kidney donor who presented with acute abdominal pain 16 days following LLDN with features inconsistent with a diagnosis of acute appendicitis.
  • Exploration of the wound and mini-laparotomy showed no evidence of wound dehiscence or a hernia, but revealed an inflamed appendix wrapped up with omentum.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Despite modern advances, the diagnosis of appendicitis remains essentially clinical.
  • Ultrasonography is effective in supplementing the clinical diagnosis.
  • Each patient with suspected acute appendicitis was subjected to surgery and appendix was submitted for histopathological examination.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis when supplemented with an ultrasonography, can achieve a reasonable degree of diagnostic accuracy with resultant low negative exploration rates thereby reducing the financial burden and morbidity by avoiding unnecessary appendicectomy and keeping the cost of treatment affordable.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND: Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix of the blind intestine.
  • Both interventions, the open surgical (through opening of the abdominal cavity) as well as the laparoscopic approach (via insertion of an optic system and instruments into the abdominal cavity through three small incisions), are used for the excision of the inflamed appendix (appendectomy).
  • RESEARCH QUESTIONS: The performed evaluation addresses questions on the medical effectiveness of the use of laparoscopic appendectomy in comparison with the classical open appendix excision as well as on its cost-effectiveness based on the German health system.
  • By routine, leaving the macroscopically bland appendix in situ, the rate of negative appendectomy is reduced significantly and profound.

  • INTRODUCTION: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) are classified on the basis of hormonal activity of tumor cells to functional and non-functional tumors.
  • Therapy of well differentiated NETs includes surgical procedures, debulking of tumor mass, biotherapy and peptid receptor radionuclid therapy.
  • Primary localisation was: stomach--6 times, pancreas--9 times, duodenum--1 times, jejunum-- 4 times, appendix--3 times, ileum--23 times, rectum--4 times.
  • Metastatic disease was affirmed in time of diagnosis in 36 patients.
  • Carcinoid syndroma had 20 pts, 4 pts with pancreatic tumor had functional tumors (2 times overproduction of calcitonine, 1 times of gastrin, 1 times of insuline).
  • Surgical treatment was performed in 40 pts--resection of primary tumor and debulking of metastases, in 5 pts with pancreatic tumor resection was not possible due to invasion to sorrounding tissue and vessels.
  • In 5 pts with non resectable neuroendocrine carcinoma of pancreas peptid radionuclide receptor therapy (PRRT) was indicated: in 4 of them with 90Ytrium-DOTA-octreotid and in 1 patient with MIBG.
  • In all pts a reduction of tumor volume was noticed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] CD44 is a marker for the outer pillar cells in the early postnatal mouse inner ear.
  • Cluster of differentiation antigens (CD proteins) are classically used as immune cell markers.
  • However, their expression within the inner ear is still largely undefined.
  • In this study, we explored the possibility that specific CD proteins might be useful for defining inner ear cell populations. mRNA expression profiling of microdissected auditory and vestibular sensory epithelia revealed 107 CD genes as expressed in the early postnatal mouse inner ear.
  • The expression of 68 CD genes was validated with real-time RT-PCR using RNA extracted from microdissected sensory epithelia of cochleae, utricles, saccules, and cristae of newborn mice.
  • Specifically, CD44 was identified as preferentially expressed in the auditory sensory epithelium.
  • Immunohistochemistry revealed that within the early postnatal organ of Corti, the expression of CD44 is restricted to outer pillar cells.
  • In order to confirm and expand this finding, we characterized the expression of CD44 in two different strains of mice with loss- and gain-of-function mutations in Fgfr3 which encodes a receptor for FGF8 that is essential for pillar cell development.
  • We found that the expression of CD44 is abolished from the immature pillar cells in homozygous Fgfr3 knockout mice.
  • In contrast, both the outer pillar cells and the aberrant Deiters' cells in the Fgfr3 ( P244R/ ) (+) mice express CD44.
  • The deafness phenotype segregating in DFNB51 families maps to a linkage interval that includes CD44.
  • To study the potential role of CD44 in hearing, we characterized the auditory system of CD44 knockout mice and sequenced the entire open reading frame of CD44 of affected members of DFNB51 families.
  • Our results suggest that CD44 does not underlie the deafness phenotype of the DFNB51 families.
  • Finally, our study reveals multiple potential new cell type-specific markers in the mouse inner ear and identifies a new marker for outer pillar cells.

  • INTRODUCTION: Carcinoid tumor is a rare neuroendocrine neoplasm with different locations, the most frequent ones during the pediatric age being the appendix and lung.
  • Scintigraphy with (111)In-DTPA-d-Phe(1)-octreotide has led to an importance advance in the diagnosis of extension in carcinoid tumor patients.
  • CLINICAL CASES: The first patient (9 years) was studied using the SSRS after surgery due to carcinoid tumor in the right lower lobe in which tumor remains was observed (this being clearer in the tomography study).
  • The second patient (10 years) presented due to endobronchial tumor in the left lower lobe together with atelectasis of the LUL and emphysema of the LLL.
  • Radiology imaging techniques suggested the differential diagnosis between the endobronchial carcinoid tumor or plasma cells or foreign body gramuloma.
  • The SSRS showed an abnormal deposit of activity in the left hemithorax consisted with carcinoid tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: The SSRS has demonstrated great utility in the diagnosis, follow-up and staging of pediatric patients, carriers of neuroendocrine carcinoid tumors.

  • [Title] Management of appendiceal mass.
  • BACKGROUND: The management of appendiceal mass is surrounded with controversy.
  • This article reviews some of the controversial issues in the management of appendix mass, assesses current practice and suggests an appropriate approach for the management of appendix mass.
  • METHODS: A Medline, Pubmed and Cochrane database search were used to find such key words and combinations of: appendix, appendiceal, appendicular, interval, appendectomy, appendicectomy, mass, abscess, phlegmon, and appendicitis.
  • RESULTS: A conservative management is still a highly acceptable approach for appendix mass.
  • CONCLUSION: We recommend initially conservative approach to the management of appendiceal mass especially in our environment.

  • [Title] Diagnosis and management of pediatric endocrine neoplasms.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To guide the clinician in the diagnostic evaluation of endocrine neoplasms, to distinguish between benign and malignant and determine when surgical referral is indicated.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: Thyroid nodules are uncommon but malignant in as many as 27% of patients.
  • Adrenal neoplasms cover a wide spectrum of disorder.
  • Malignant lesions of the adrenal gland carry a poor prognosis when complete surgical resection cannot be achieved.
  • Carcinoids are rare neuroendocrine neoplasms, primarily of the appendix, associated with carcinoid syndrome in 10% of patients.
  • Their presence should raise concern about a multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome and appropriate diagnostic and endocrine work-up.

  • [Title] Surgery versus radical endotherapies for early cancer and high grade dysplasia in Barrett's oesophagus.
  • Currently the mainstay of therapy is surgical management of advanced cancer but this has improved the five-year survival very little in the last 30 years.
  • OBJECTIVES: We used data from randomised controlled trials to examine the effectiveness of endotherapies compared with surgery, in people with Barrett's Oesophagus; those with early neoplasias (defined as high grade dysplasia (HGD), and those with early cancer (defined as carcinoma in-situ, superficially invasive, early cancer or superficial cancer T-1m (T1-a) and T-1sm (T1-b)).
  • SELECTION CRITERIA: Types of studies: randomised controlled trials comparing endotherapies with surgery in the treatment of high grade dysplasia (HGD), or early cancer.
  • All cellular types of cancer were included (i.e. adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and more unusual types) but will be discussed separately.
  • TYPES OF PARTICIPANTS: patients of any age and either gender with a histologically confirmed diagnosis of early neoplasia (HGD and early cancer) in Barrett's or squamous lined oesophagus.Types of interventions; endotherapies (the intervention) compared with surgery (the control), all with curative intent.
  • DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Reports of studies which meet the inclusion criteria for this review would have been analysed using the methods detailed in Appendix 9.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diagnosis of appendicitis during pregnancy and perinatal outcome in the late pregnancy.
  • BACKGROUND: Appendicitis is the most common surgical problem in pregnancy, however the particular dangers of appendicitis in pregnancy lie in the varied presentation of symptoms and the higher chance of delayed diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: Seventy-eight pregnant women who were diagnosed with acute appendicitis (sixteen patients had a perforated appendix, 62 patients had a non-perforated appendix) were operated upon during late pregnancy.
  • A longer interval between symptom onset and surgery was associated with appendix perforation ((109.5 +/- 52.7) hours) than with no appendix perforation ((35.1 +/- 19.62) hours; P = 0.007).
  • There was a significant difference in the rate of preterm labor (5.1% vs 1.3%) and the rate of fetal mortality (25% vs 1.7%) between patients with and without a perforated appendix.
