AIM: We assess the prevalence and mechanism of recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) injury in central neck dissection (CND) for thyroid cancer. METHODS: CND with intraoperative neural monitoring was outlined in 1.273 nerves at risk (NAR). RLN lesions were stratified according to: timing (during thyroidectomy versus CND), segmental vs. diffuse injury, mechanism, severity, location, number of lymph nodes dissected and metastastatic. EMG parameters were recorded. RESULTS: 49/1...

Laparoscopic liver resection is rapidly increasing, and certain types of resection are considered standard procedures for liver resection, especially for small malignant tumors located on the liver surface or in the anterolateral segments of the liver. Several specialized centers have performed many types of highly complex hepatectomies, anatomical resections, and laparoscopic donor hepatectomies. Even though several international consensus conferences and expert meetings have been held, until now there have been no practical guidelines for beginners or experts conducting laparoscopic liver resection...

The International Summit on Laparoscopic Pancreatic Resection (ISLPR) was held in Coimbatore, India, on 7th and 8th of October 2016 and thirty international experts who regularly perform laparoscopic pancreatic resections participated in ISPLR from four continents, i.e., South and North America, Europe and Asia. Prior to ISLPR, the first conversation among the experts was made online on August 26th, 2016 and the structures of ISPLR were developed. The aims of ISPLR were; i) to identify indications and optimal case selection criteria for minimally invasive pancreatic resection (MIPR) in the setting of both benign and malignant diseases; ii) standardization of techniques to increase the safety of MIPR; iii) identification of common problems faced during MIPR and developing associated management strategies; iv) development of clinical protocols to allow early identification of complications and develop the accompanying management plan to minimize morbidity and mortality...

Metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is a devastating disease causing 700.000 deaths annually worldwide. Metastases most frequently develop in the liver. Partial hepatectomy has dramatically improved clinical outcome and is the only curative treatment option for eligible patients with mCRC. Pre-clinical studies have shown that surgical procedures can have tumor-promoting local 'side-effects' such as hypoxia and inflammation, thereby altering the behaviour of residual tumor cells. In addition, systemically released factors following (colon or liver) surgery can act as a wakeup-call for dormant tumor cells in distant organs and/or help establish a pre-metastatic niche...

OBJECTIVES: LncRNA ZEB1 Antisense 1 (ZEB1-AS1) has been suggested to be an oncogenic role in human hepatocellular carcinoma, osteosarcoma, glioma and esophageal carcinoma progression. However, the clinical significance and biological function of ZEB1-AS1 in gastric cancer is poorly understood. METHODS: Levels of ZEB1-AS1 expression in gastric cancer tissues and cell lines were detected by qRT-PCR. Loss-of-function and gain-of-function studies were conducted to explore the biological function of ZEB1-AS1 in gastric cancer cells migration, invasion and EMT process...

BACKGROUND: Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy is the standard treatment for locally advanced esophageal adenocarcinomas (EAC). Pathological response is thought to be a major prognostic factor. Aims of this study were to determine the frequency of complete response and to compare the survival of complete and incomplete responders in stage III EAC. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all stage III patients that underwent neoadjuvant therapy followed by esophagectomy between 1999 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Vulvar cancer is a rare disease accounting for approximately 5% of female genital tract tumors worldwide. Currently surgery represents the mainstay alone or sometimes, in combination with chemo-radiotherapy, for locally advanced tumors and recurrent disease. However, significant physical and sexual impairment mostly due to anatomical distortion of external genitalia are a consequence of radical surgical treatment. Postoperative reconstruction after demolitive surgeries improves aesthetic and functional results, guarantees an adequate coverage of large tumors and assures safe surgical margin...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is known to be independently associated with both orthopaedic surgery and malignancy. Patients undergoing surgery for musculoskeletal malignancies are at an increased risk for thromboembolic events. Although VTE can lead to serious morbidity and mortality, the potential complications of prophylactic anticoagulation call for a greater understanding of a patient's risk factors, as well as more rigorous guidelines for prophylactic anticoagulation regimens. The aims of this study were to 1) Analyze the rate of VTE in patients surgically treated for primary bone sarcoma; 2) Identify risk factors for VTE in patients with primary bone sarcoma; 3) Discuss the complications associated with prophylactic anticoagulation in patients with primary bone sarcoma...

BACKGROUND: Roughly 25-35% of patients who are treated with osteoarticular allograft for primary bone sarcomas or aggressive benign bone tumors require surgery in the long-term due to degenerative changes of the articular surface of the allograft. There are three established methods of reconstruction for this complication; a total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the retained osteoarticular allograft, a proximal or distal endoprosthesis after removal of the allograft, and an allograft-prosthesis composite (APC)...

In minimally invasive surgery one of the main challenges is the precise location of the target during the intervention. The aim of the study is to present usability of elastic body splines (EBS) to minimize TRE error. The method to find the desired EBS parameters values is presented with usage of Particle Swarm optimization approach. This ability of TRE minimization has been achieved for the respiratory phases corresponding to minimum FRE for abdominal (especially liver) surgery. The proposed methodology was verified during experiments conducted on 21 patients diagnosed with liver tumors...

BACKGROUND: Surgical outcomes of early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are poor. The Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI) is a useful parameter for evaluating nutritional status. We aimed to investigate if preoperative GNRI could be a predictive factor for pathological stage I NSCLC patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively selected 141 consecutive pathological stage I NSCLC patients treated from August 2005 to August 2010. We analyzed their preoperative GNRI in univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses for postoperative recurrence-free survival (RFS)...

The ABCB1 gene encodes the P-glycoprotein, an efflux pump for some antineoplastic agents which acts as a resistance mechanism to chemotherapy. Three SNPs (C3435T, C1236T and G2677T/A), are the most widely studied in ABCB1. The inconsistent conclusions about the association of these polymorphisms and the response to chemotherapy in breast cancer (BC) patients prompted us to conduct a meta-analysis. A total of nine (770 patients), five (566 patients) and three studies (367 patients) relating the ABCB1 C3435T, C1236T and G2677T/A polymorphisms respectively, were included...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal cancer remains a major public health issue worldwide. In clinical practice, chemo(radio)therapy is an important approach to patients with esophageal cancer. Only the part of patients who respond to chemo(radio)therapy achieve better long-term outcome. In this case, predictive biomarkers for response of esophageal cancer patients treated with chemo(radio)therapy are of importance. Meta-analysis of P53 for predicting esophageal cancer response has been reported before and is not included in our study...

PURPOSE: This study was designed to evaluate tumor regression endoscopic criteria for predicting the post-chemoradiotherapy (CRT) prognosis of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 425 patients with rectal cancer who received radical surgery after CRT were included in this study. All patients were divided into two groups according to post-CRT preoperative endoscopic findings: 1) good response (E-GR): scar, telangiectasia, or erythema; 2) minimal or no response (E-MR): nodules, ulcers, strictures, or remnant tumor...

OBJECTIVE: To derive and validate a scoring system for major complication after hepatectomy. BACKGROUND: Complications after hepatectomy significantly compromise survival outcomes, method to predict such risk is lacking. A reliable scoring system is therefore awaited. METHODS: Consecutive adult patients receiving hepatectomy for primary or secondary liver malignancy from 1995 to 2014 were recruited. After randomization, patients were allocated to derivation and validation group respectively...
