INTRODUCTION: We studied the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) ± trastuzumab on the ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) component in patients with locally advanced breast cancer who achieved pathological complete response (pCR). METHODS: The diagnostic biopsies of 92 consecutive breast cancer patients that were treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) ± trastuzumab were evaluated for the presence of DCIS. Upon completion of NAC, the surgical specimens were evaluated for complete eradication of both the invasive and non-invasive cancer in the breast...

BACKGROUND: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas (GEP-NEC) are generally characterized by synchronous metastases, high aggressiveness and a dismal prognosis. Current international guidelines do not recommend surgical treatment of liver metastases, however the existing data are scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of curatively intended resection/radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of liver metastases in patients with metastatic GEP-NEC. METHODS: 32 patients with a diagnosis of high-grade gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (Ki-67 > 20%) and with intended curative resection/RFA of liver metastases, were identified among 840 patients from two Nordic GEP-NEC registries...

AIM: This study was aimed to compare perioperative and oncological outcomes of mid/high locally advanced midrectal cancer (LARC) treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCRT) vs. surgery alone, and to identify risk factors for local recurrence in mid/high LARC. METHOD: A total of 471 mid/high LARC patients treated with surgery alone or NCRT (50.4 Gy in 28 fractions) with concurrent FOLFOX/XELOX followed by TME in 6-8 weeks from 2008 to 2014 were matched 1:1 by using propensity score analysis...

BACKGROUND: Prognosis of alpha-fetoprotein positive gastric cancer (AFPP-GC) remains elusive so far due to disparities in cohort size and baseline characteristics in previous studies. A propensity score matching (PSM) analysis as well as multivariable model was performed for unbiased evaluation of the outcome in AFPGC. METHODS: Among 3034 gastric cancer patients who underwent curative gastric cancer surgery (R0, M0) at the National Cancer Center, Korea between 2002 and 2007, we identified 97 patients being positive for AFP either by elevation of serum-AFP levels >10 μg/L or by immunohistochemical staining...

BACKGROUND: The feasibility of salvage hepatectomy for locally recurrent hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) is unclear, especially for patients with viable parts of previously multinodular tumors. METHODS: We reviewed charts of patients who underwent initial hepatectomies between 2000 and 2014 to select those with local recurrences (LR) after non-surgical treatments. Their postoperative outcomes, including morbidity, recurrence-free survival (RFS), and overall survival (OS) were compared with matched patients who underwent initial hepatectomies for primary HCCs (PR)...

BACKGROUND: The role of preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) for hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. The aim of this meta-analysis is to investigate the role of PBD in the treatment of potentially resectable HCC. METHODS: All studies reporting outcomes on patients with PBD vs without PBD were included. A systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for studies published between 1980 and 2016. RESULTS: Initial search identified 667 articles...

INTRODUCTION: Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC) has been introduced as novel treatment for peritoneal carcinomatosis. Only proper patient selection, stringent safety protocol and careful surgery allow for a secure procedure. We hereby report the essentials for safe implementation. METHODS: All consecutive procedures within 20 months after PIPAC implementation were analyzed with regards to practical and surgical aspects. Special emphasis was laid on modifications of technique and safety measures during the implementation process with systematic use of a dedicated checklist...

OBJECTIVE: The principal objective of this study is to clarify the prognostic significance of borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC). The second objective is to evaluate the prognostic impact of the depth of pathological venous invasion. METHODS: The study included 122 pancreatic cancer patients who underwent curative surgery. All computed tomography scans of the patients were retrospectively interpreted and classified according to the NCCN guidelines, version 1...

BACKGROUND: Oesophageal GIST (ESOGIST) are very rare tumours requiring special consideration regarding diagnosis, surgical management, and perioperative treatment. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted across 9 centres in the French Sarcoma Group (FSG) to characterize all patients in the years 2000-2014. RESULTS: Seventeen patients (pts) with primary localized ESOGIST were identified, with median age 69 years (36-81) and 11 females...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NACRT) for resectable and borderline resectable pancreatic cancer is important for predicting outcomes after radical surgery, but few clinical indicators predict outcome before resection. This study examined the utility of FDG-PET in predicting the efficacy of NACRT and outcome after radical surgery. METHODS: Eighty-three pancreatic cancer patients who underwent FDG-PET before and after NACRT and had positive standard uptake values (SUVs) before NACRT were enrolled in this study...

INTRODUCTION: Nodal ratio (NR) has been demonstrated to be an independent prognostic factor in patients with gastric cancer. We evaluated the prognostic role of NR comparing it with the current TNM (2010) classification in gastric cancer patients treated with curative (R0) D1 resection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 110 patients who underwent R0 resection for gastric cancer at University Hospital of Larissa between 2002 and 2011. All patients had a D1 lymphadenectomy plus the nodes along the left gastric artery...

BACKGROUND: The aim of breast conserving surgery (BCS) is to excise the cancer with clear margins whilst at the same time leaving a good or excellent cosmetic result. A significant percentage of women, who have large cancers or have limited breast volumes, achieve poor cosmetic outcomes. BCS with immediate volume replacement using lipofilling or autologous fat transfer is a new technique. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cosmetic outcomes of a pilot study of patients having BCS and immediate lipofilling performed in The Edinburgh Breast Unit...

PURPOSE: To analyze diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) for treatment response assessment in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with histologically proven rectal adenocarcinoma, stage II-III disease, were enrolled and underwent surgery following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT). All patients were referred for a DW-MRI protocol on a 3 Tesla MR-system, consisting of axial T2-weighted and DWI sequences prior (I), during (II) and after (III) nCRT...

BACKGROUND: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is rare, infiltrating dermal neoplasm, characterized by indolent growth and low probability of metastases. The first effective systemic therapy in DFSP introduced into clinical practice was imatinib, demonstrating high activity in advanced cases. The aim of the study was to perform an analysis of patients with advanced DFSP treated with imatinib, with or without surgery, in routine clinical practice with long-term follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We analyzed the data of 31 Caucasian patients (14 male, 17 female; median age 56 years) with locally advanced/initially inoperable and/or metastatic DFSP who started therapy with imatinib at initial dose 800 mg daily between 12/2004 and 07/2014...

INTRODUCTION: Major pathologic regression after neoadjuvant therapy is a strong and favorable prognostic factor in several types of cancer (breast, rectal and bladder). This information is less clear and has yet to be systematically evaluated in upper gastrointestinal tumors. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the prognostic impact of tumor regression after preoperative therapy on disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in gastro-esophageal cancer patients. METHODS: we searched for relevant articles in PubMed, SCOPUS, Web of Science, CINAHL, LILACS, Ovid, Cochrane Library, Google Scholar and Embase up to June 2, 2016...
