BACKGROUND: Substantial variation in the use of (neo) adjuvant treatment in patients with gastric cancer exists. The aim of this study was to identify underlying (organizational and process) factors associated with the use of perioperative therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with resectable gastric cancer who underwent surgery between 2012 and 2014 were selected from the Dutch Upper gastrointestinal Cancer Audit (DUCA). The proportion of perioperatively treated patients was defined per hospital...

Rutger C H Stijns, Mike-Stephen R Tromp, Niek Hugen, Johannes H W de Wilt
Treatment of rectal cancer patients has been subjected to change over the past thirty years. Total mesorectal excision is considered the cornerstone of rectal cancer treatment, but is also associated with significant morbidity resulting in an impaired quality of life. The addition of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy to surgery has shown to improve survival and local control and may lead to a partial or even complete response (CR). This raises questions regarding the necessity for subsequent radical surgery. After careful patient selection local excision and wait-and-see approaches are explored, aiming to improve quality of life without compromising oncological outcome...

BACKGROUND: The ideal management for patients with intermediate and advanced stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is controversial. The main purpose of this systematic review is to examine the role of liver resection in patients with intermediate stage HCC (multinodular HCCs) and in advanced stage HCC [mainly patients with portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT)]. METHODS: A systematic search of the literature was performed in Pud Med and the Cochrane Library from 01...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to analyze global variations in the level of cancer-related research activity and correlate this with cancer-specific mortality. METHODS: The SCOPUS database was explored to obtain data relating to the number of cancer-related publications per country. Cancer-specific mortality rates were obtained from the World Health Organization. Global variations in the level of scholarly activity were analyzed and correlated with variations in cancer-specific mortality...

BACKGROUND: The ability to provide optimal care to cancer patients depends on awareness of current evidence-based practices emanating from research or involvement in research where circumstances permit. The significant global variations in cancer-related research activity and its correlation to cancer-specific outcomes may have an influence on the care provided to cancer patients and their outcomes. The aim of this project is to develop a global curriculum in research literacy for the surgical oncologist...

INTRODUCTION: Radical Cytoreductive Surgery (CRS) with Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC), has been proposed as the current standard of treatment for metastatic peritoneal disease by several tumors. Despite its widely utilization, there seems to be a great variability in their organization, clinical practice, and safety among centers. AIM OF THE STUDY: To obtain updated information on clinical practice in different perioperative areas of the CRS-HIPEC...

AIM: To assess outcomes of whole gland high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) as compared with minimally-invasive radical prostatectomy (MIRP) in elderly patients. MATERIALS & METHODS: Patients aged ≥70 years with, cT1-cT2 disease, biopsy Gleason score (GS) 3 + 3 or 3 + 4 and preoperative PSA ≤10 ng/mL were submitted to either whole-gland HIFU or MIRP. Propensity-score matching analysis was performed to ensure the baseline equivalence of groups. Follow-up visits were routinely performed assessing PSA and urinary function according to the International Continence Score (ICS) and the International Prostatic Symptoms Score (IPSS) questionnaires...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence and clinical significance of lymph node metastasis (LNM, N1) in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is unclear. Recent studies have focused on extremity/trunk STS (ETSTS). We sought to define the subgroup of patients with LNM at sarcoma diagnosis across all disease sites and histologies. METHODS: We identified and categorized 89,870 STS patients from the National Cancer Data Base (1998-2012) by nodal stage. Pathologically confirmed LNM (pN1) were identified in 1404 patients; 1750 had clinically suspicious but not pathologically confirmed LNM (cN1)...

BACKGROUND: Flap reconstruction plays an essential role in the surgical management of extremity soft tissue sarcoma (ESTS) for many patients. But flaps increase the duration and complexity of the surgery and their contribution to overall morbidity is unclear. This study directly compares the complication rates in patients with ESTS undergoing either flap reconstruction or primary wound closure and explores contributing factors. METHODS: Eight hundred and ninety-seven patients who underwent ESTS resection followed by primary closure (631) or flap reconstruction (266) were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: Robotic low anterior resection (RLAR) and transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) are novel surgical techniques for resection of rectal cancer. To our knowledge, no data exist on direct comparison of these procedures in terms of oncological or functional parameters. METHODS: 60 RLAR and 55 TaTME for rectal cancer were compared in respect to patient characteristics, clinicopathological parameters, intraoperative and perioperative results and anatomopathological outcome...

BACKGROUND: The rate of local recurrence of rectal cancer (LRRC) has decreased but the condition remains a therapeutic challenge. This study aimed to examine treatment and prognosis in patients with LRRC in Sweden. Special focus was directed towards potential differences between geographical regions and time periods. METHOD: All patients with LRRC as first event, following primary surgery for rectal cancer performed during the period 1995-2002, were included in this national population-based cohort-study...

RATIONALE: The gold standard for detection of axillary sentinel lymph nodes uses injection of a radioisotope (99Tc Nanocoll). As an alternative to this method, a magnetometer detecting the superparamagnetic tracer Sienna+® can be applied for detection of sentinel lymph nodes. The goal of this study was to determine whether interpretation of breast MRI is impaired by Sienna+® tracer residues in the operated breast and axillary lymph nodes after a sentinel procedure using this tracer...

Patients with cT3 rectal cancer are less likely to develop complete response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation (nCRT) and still face significant risk for systemic relapse. In this setting, radiation (RT) dose-escalation and consolidation chemotherapy in "extended" nCRT regimens have been suggested to improve primary tumor response and decrease the risks of systemic recurrences. For these reasons we compared surgery-free and distant-metastases free survival among cT3 patients undergoing standard or extended nCRT...
