  • [Title] Radical pancreaticoduodenectomy for benign disease.
  • Preoperative histological confirmation of malignancy is frequently unavailable and some patients will subsequently be found to have benign disease.
  • Here, we review our experience with Whipple's procedure for patients ultimately proven to have benign disease.
  • In eight cases, the final histology was benign (7.1%).
  • One additional patient was known to have benign disease at resection.
  • The pathological diagnosis included benign biliary stricture (two), chronic pancreatitis (two), choledochal cyst (one), inflammatory pseudotumour (one), cystic duodenal wall dysplasia (one), duodenal angiodysplasia (one), and granular cell neoplasm (one).
  • Morbidity included intra-abdominal collection (one), anastomotic leak (one), liver abscess (one), and myocardial infarction (one).
  • Despite recent advances in diagnostic imaging, 8% of the patients undergoing Whipple's procedure had benign disease.
  • Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirate (EUS-FNA) may reduce the need for Whipple's operation in benign pancreaticobiliary disease in the future.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Uterine Diseases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Endosalpingiosis is characterized by the presence of benign glands lined by tubal-type epithelium involving the pelvic and lower abdominal peritoneum and pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes in women.
  • Rarely, cystification can occur, resulting in a neoplasm-like mass associated with clinical manifestations, an intraoperative abnormality, or a striking finding on gross examination.
  • Here we report the transvaginal ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and histopathological appearance of an unusual case of cystic endosalpingiosis involving the right ovary and full thickness of the wall of the uterine fundus in a patient who presented with a 6-month history of menorrhagia and pelvic pain.
  • Clinicians should be aware of this type of uterine benign manifestation so as to refrain from overtreatment.

  • [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.
  • 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).
  • 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] Physiologic FDG uptake in the ovary together with an abdominal wall leiomyoma mimicking metastasizing ovarian cancer on PET/CT imaging.
  • However, there is a considerable overlap in the imaging features of malignant and benign ovarian lesions because physiological FDG-uptake in the ovaries can occur, depending on the menstrual cycle in premenopausal women.We present a case of FDG uptake in the ovary co-occurring with an intensely FDG active tumor of the abdominal wall in a 44-year-old woman.
  • However, histologic examination demonstrated benign findings, namely abdominal wall leiomyoma and an ovarian follicular cyst.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Local management of rectal neoplasia.
  • The treatment of rectal neoplasia, whether benign or malignant, challenges the surgeon.
  • Any effective treatment aimed at controlling rectal cancer in the pelvis must take into account the disease in the bowel wall itself and the disease, or potential disease, in the mesorectum.
  • Local management techniques avoid the potential morbidity, mortality, and functional consequences of a major abdominal radical resection and are thus quite effective in achieving the maintenance of function and quality of life goal.
  • Without removing both the rectum and the mesorectum there is no completely accurate way to determine whether a rectal cancer has moved outside the bowel wall, so any decision on local management of a rectal neoplasm is a calculated risk.
  • For benign neoplasia, the challenge is removing the lesion without having to resort to a major abdominal procedure.

  • Abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding were the usual complaints.
  • Of 4 cervical tumors, 2 were endocervical polyps, 1 invaded one-third of the cervical wall, and the other invaded its full thickness.
  • The finding of such cases, which raises the controversy of whether or not adenofibroma exists as a tumor entity, prompted us to make a comparative immunohistochemical analysis of 23 typical adenosarcomas, 8 adenosarcomas with sarcomatous overgrowth, and 29 benign and malignant related lesions, including 7 clinically benign adenofibromas.
  • Adenosarcomas with sarcomatous overgrowth showed strong immunoreaction for Ki-67 and p53 and loss of CD10 and progesterone receptors immunostaining; in contrast, the immunoreaction for these tumor markers in typical adenosarcomas without sarcomatous overgrowth was similar to that of adenofibromas associated with favorable outcome and other benign lesions such as endometrial polyps and endometriosis.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Gallbladder Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The notes of all cases of gallbladder cancer were scrutinized, with particular emphasis on presentation, preoperative diagnostic tools using abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography scan, operative findings, and the histology results.
  • Histological findings confirmed gallstone disease in 97% and rare benign pathology in 3%.
  • In all five patients, cancer was isolated from thickened fibrotic wall on macroscopic appearance and spread through all layers of the gallbladder wall.
  • The percentage of thickened-wall gallbladder in this study was 38.02% and the cancer incidence in the thickened wall was 0.45%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A selective policy rather than routine histological examination of nonfibrotic or thickened-wall gallbladder has to be considered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Laparoscopy-assisted transvaginal mass removal was performed under the clinical impression of a uterine leiomyoma and benign ovarian teratoma.
  • 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.
