BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can be complicated by major vascular invasion, and resection can be beneficial in some patients.1 Some of these patients are traditionally operated under total vascular exclusion (TVE), refrigeration, extracorporeal circulatory bypass, and cardiac surgery, with high morbidity and mortality.2 However, HCC thrombi are not adherent to the venous wall, and with advances in surgical techniques, resection can be simplified and performed during short-duration TVE alone...

BACKGROUND: The association between tumor mismatch repair status and obesity in colon cancer is not well understood. The authors of this study hypothesized that mismatch repair deficiency in colon cancer may be associated with a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) and improved patient outcome due to an enhanced tumor immune microenvironment. METHODS: For this study, 70 patients were randomly selected from a prospective trial evaluating nodal ultrastaging for colon cancer...

BACKGROUND: Western multicenter studies on distal pancreatectomy with celiac axis resection (DP-CAR), also known as the Appleby procedure, for locally advanced pancreatic cancer are lacking. We aimed to study overall survival, morbidity, mortality and the impact of preoperative hepatic artery embolization (PHAE). METHODS: Retrospective cohort study within the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary-Association, on DP-CAR between 1-1-2000 and 6-1-2016. Primary endpoint was overall survival...

BACKGROUND: For esophageal cancer, the number of retrieved lymph nodes (LNs) is often used as a quality indicator. The aim of this study is to analyze the number of retrieved LNs in The Netherlands, assess factors associated with LN yield, and explore the association with short-term outcomes. This is a population-based study on lymph node retrieval in patients with esophageal cancer, presenting results from the Dutch Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Audit. STUDY DESIGN: For this retrospective national cohort study, patients with esophageal carcinoma who underwent esophagectomy between 2011 and 2016 were included...

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic hemithyroidectomy (HT) is the most widely recommended surgical procedure for a nodule with indeterminate cytology; however, additional details may make initial total thyroidectomy (TT) preferable. We sought to identify patient-specific factors (PSFs) associated with initial TT in patients with indeterminate thyroid nodules. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of all patients with a thyroid nodule ≥ 1 cm and initial cytology of atypia of undetermined significance or suspicious for follicular neoplasm between 2012 and 2015 who underwent thyroidectomy...

BACKGROUND: Given the limited data, systemic treatment of male breast cancer has been extrapolated from female patients. The 21-gene recurrence score (RS) assay estimates the risk of distant recurrence and chemotherapy benefit in early-stage, ER+/HER2- female breast cancer. We assessed the association between RS and type of treatment in male breast cancer. METHODS: We identified male patients with ER+/HER2- breast cancer and available RS results treated at our institution in 2006-2016...

PURPOSE: Current evidence regarding salvage resection for recurrent retroperitoneal (RP) sarcomas generally lacks detailed histology-specific analyses, but the aggressiveness of these tumors varies widely by histology. We investigated associations between timing and extent of salvage surgery and survival outcomes in patients with recurrent RP well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDLPS). METHODS: The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Surgical Oncology sarcoma database was reviewed to identify patients with RP WDLPS who underwent surgical resection for first recurrent disease (salvage surgery) in 1995-2015...

PURPOSE: To examine the associations between sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) and complications among older patients who underwent breast-conserving surgery (BCS) for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). METHODS: We identified women from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results-Medicare dataset aged 67-94 years diagnosed during 1998-2011 with DCIS who underwent BCS as initial treatment. We assessed incidence of complications, including lymphedema, wound infection, seroma, or pain, within 9 months of diagnosis...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) compared to MRI in the assessment of tumor response in breast cancer patients undergoing neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NST). METHODS: The institutional review board approved this study. From September 2014 to June 2017, we identified patients with pathologically confirmed invasive breast cancer who underwent NST. All patients had both CESM and MRI performed pre- and post-NST with pathological assessment after surgical management...

BACKGROUND: Axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) is frequently performed for node-positive (cN+) breast cancer patients. Combining positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) before-NST and the MARI (marking axillary lymph nodes with radioactive iodine seeds) procedure after neoadjuvant systemic therapy (NST) has the potential for avoiding unnecessary ALNDs. This report presents the results from implementation of this strategy. METHODS: All breast cancer patients treated with NST at the Netherlands Cancer Institute who underwent a PET/CT and the MARI procedure from July 2014 to July 2017 were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Detection of peritoneal metastasis remains challenging due to the limited sensitivity of current examination methods. This study aimed to establish a prediction model for estimating the individual risk of postoperative peritoneal metastasis from colon cancer to facilitate early interventions for high-risk patients. METHODS: This study investigated 1720 patients with stages 1-3 colon cancer who underwent curative resection at the University of Tokyo Hospital between 1997 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Lung squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is a major histological subtype of lung cancer. In this study, we investigated genomic alterations in LSCC and evaluated the clinical implications of mutation burden (MB) in LSCC. METHODS: Genomic alterations were determined in Japanese patients with LSCC (N = 67) using next-generation sequencing of 415 known cancer genes. MB was defined as the number of non-synonymous mutations per 1 Mbp. Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) protein expression in cancer cells was evaluated by immunohistochemical analysis...

PURPOSE: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare, aggressive cancer; complete surgical resection offers the best chance for long-term survival. The impact of surgical margin status on survival is poorly understood. Our objective was to determine the association of margin status with survival. METHODS: Patients with ACC were identified from the National Cancer Data Base, 1998-2012, and stratified based on surgical margin status (negative vs. microscopically positive [+] vs...

Unprecedented advances in the treatment of cancer have occurred through the use of immunotherapy, with several agents currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of widespread metastatic disease across cancer types. Immune checkpoint blockade represents a particularly promising class of agents that block inhibitory molecules on the surface of T cells, resulting in their activation and propagation of an immune response. Treatment with these agents may re-invigorate anti-tumor immunity, resulting in therapeutic responses, and use of these agents currently is being studied in the adjuvant setting...
