Previous studies reported that enhanced recovery pathway (ERP) is safe in elderly who did not require a specifically tailored protocol. In previous studies, elderly have been considered as a homogeneous cohort and the cut-off value to identify them was different. The aim of the present study is to assess the compliance to ERP and its impact on postoperative outcome in three subgroups of elderly patients with increasing ages. Prospectively collected data entered in an electronic Italian registry specifically designed for ERP were reviewed...

During the last two decades, several minimally invasive approaches for endocrine neck surgery have been developed. Minimally invasive video-assisted approaches (minimally invasive video-assisted parathyroidectomy and minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy) gained a quite large worldwide diffusion, maybe because these techniques combine the advantages related to the endoscopic magnification with those due to the close similarity with the conventional surgery that makes these surgical approaches reproducible and feasible in different surgical settings...

Posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy has recently increased in popularity and currently adopted in about 20% of referral centers. It may provide more direct access to the adrenals, thus avoiding post-operative adhesions and the need for patient repositioning in bilateral adrenalectomy. Although it has been suggested to be feasible for large tumors, large tumor size is indicated as the main limitation of PRA, mainly because of the small space available for dissection.

One of the most controversial issues in the treatment of thyroid cancer is the management of the central neck nodes in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Lymph node involvement is common in patients with PTC and it may negatively affect recurrence rate and, probably, survival. Although therapeutic compartment-oriented central neck dissection is the standard treatment for patients with clinical nodal involvement (cN1) PTC, the role and the extension for elective or prophylactic central neck dissection (PCND) in patients with clinically node negative (cN0) neoplasms remains controversial...

There is an ever-growing need, with the ongoing developments in research and the progress towards patient centered care, to delineate standardized protocols of management of anal cancer. However, guidelines from different societies show some degree of disagreement. This is a systematic review of the literature to identify similarities and discrepancies between the guidelines for the management of anal cancer drafted by the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN)...

For patients undergoing thyroidectomy, the minimally invasive aspect and the cosmetic advantage of the procedure seem to be important factors in surgery. Studies in cadaver and animals have shown that different endoscopic techniques can be performed in a safe and successful way. In the evolution of thyroid surgery, for many endocrine surgeons, the transoral approach seems to be the next step. Even if such procedures are more and more frequently applied in patients, these procedures are far from being generally implemented in routine surgery...

Colorectal cancer screening programs aim at early detection of cancer to reduce incidence rates and mortality. The objective of this study is to identify the role of neurotensin in the endoscopic screening of high-risk population for developing colorectal neoplasia. Blood samples from patients referred for urgent colonoscopy to investigate symptoms suspicious of colorectal cancer were collected. Blood neurotensin levels were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Colonoscopy findings were used as reference for determining the diagnostic accuracy of blood neurotensin...

Locoregional recurrence is common in papillary thyroid cancer PTC and an optimal surgical treatment with respect to the multifocal nature of the disease stays controversial. It is a retrospective analytical study design. 209 diagnosed PTCs managed at our institute were grouped into macro-PTC with a size of dominant focus >1 cm (unifocal n = 106 and multifocal n = 64) and micro-PTMC if size of all foci was <1 cm; (unifocal n = 16 and multifocal PTMC n = 23). The primary endpoint is recurrence and tumor free survival in each of the four groups...

The gold standard treatment for abdominal paraganglioma is the complete surgical excision. The surgical approach may be either open or laparoscopic. The aim of this study is to identify clinical-pathological predictive factors for the failure of the laparoscopic approach in the treatment of abdominal paragangliomas, with the aim of reducing the rate of conversion to the open technique. A retrospective review was conducted on the medical records of patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery for suspected abdominal paraganglioma...

The objective of this study is to perform an economic analysis and examine the influence of procedural volume of our hospital, evaluating the accounting systems of Robotic radical hysterectomy (RRH) vs Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (TLRH) in patients with cervical carcinoma, due to the costs widely variable and lack in literature. Costs were collected prospectively, from March 2010 to March 2016. Direct costs were determined by examining the overall medical pathway for each type of intervention. 52 patients with cervical carcinoma, which were matched by age, body mass index, tumor size, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage, comorbidity, previous neoadjuvant chemotherapy, histology type, and tumor grade to obtain homogeneous samples...

Adrenal tumors can vary from a benign adrenocortical adenoma with no hormonal secretion to a secretory adrenocortical malignancy (adrenocortical carcinoma) or a hormone-secreting tumor of the adrenal medulla (pheochromocytoma). Currently, laparoscopic adrenalectomy is regarded as the preferred surgical approach for the management of most adrenal surgical disorders, although there are no prospective randomized trials comparing this technique with open adrenalectomy. However, widespread adoption of robotic technology has positioned robotic adrenalectomy as an option in some medical centers...

To valuate feasibility and results of radical surgery in octogenarian patients with gastric cancer. We collected data on 60 patients that underwent gastrectomy with an R0 resection at our Institution from 2010 to 2015. Patients were divided into two groups: octogenarian (OG) (n = 26), consisting of patients aged 80-89 years, and younger (YG) (n = 34), consisting of patients under 80 years of age. All patients were treated with total or subtotal gastrectomy with lymphadenectomy. A D2-lymphadenectomy was performed in 11 and 24 patients, a D1+ in 5 and 4, a D1 in 8 and 6, and a D0 in 2 and 0 cases in OG and YG respectively...
