OBJECTIVE: To determine overall survival (OS) and factors associated with OS after pelvic exenteration for uterine cancer. METHODS: Women with uterine cancer who underwent exenteration (n=1160) were identified from the 1998-2011 National Cancer Data Base. Kaplan-Meier and multivariate Cox proportional-hazards survival analyses were performed to test for associations of potential explanatory variables with OS. Analyzed confounders included age, comorbidity score, insurance status, income, distance from home to treatment center, stage, distant and nodal metastasis, tumor size, surgical margin status, exenteration type, and treatment with radiation and/or chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Locally advanced pelvic malignancy can be associated with disabling symptoms and reduced quality of life. If resectable with clear margins, a pelvic exenteration can offer long-term survival and improved quality of life. Its role in the palliation of symptoms has been described; however, the clinical outcomes and surgical indication are poorly defined. OBJECTIVE: This study describes the clinical and quality-of-life outcomes after palliative pelvic exenteration for advanced pelvic malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery for metastatic prostate cancer is an emerging area of interest with a potential upside that includes local control, delayed initiation of hormone therapy, and possibly improved cancer specific survival. In order for radical prostatectomy to be an effective treatment option for men in this group, the benefits must outweigh the surgical morbidity. The aim of this study was to present a case series and assess the literature feasibility of cytoreductive surgery for men with metastatic prostate cancer...

Depending on the stage at initial presentation, cervical cancer will recur in 25-61% of women. Typical manifestations of recurrent cervical cancer include the central pelvis and the pelvic side walls as well as retroperitoneal lymph node basins in the pelvis and the para-aortic region, and - more rarely - supraclavicular lymph nodes. There are no typical symptoms of recurrent cervical cancer. Women with suspected recurrence after cervical cancer based on gynecological examination or organ-specific symptoms must undergo imaging studies and - if technically feasible - biopsy with histological verification, especially in cases of distant metastases, in order to rule out a second primary...

A 59-year-old man presenting with fecal occult blood visited our hospital. He was diagnosed with advanced lower rectal cancer, which was contiguous with the prostate and the left seminal vesicle. There were no metastatic lesions with lymph nodes or other organs. We performed laparoscopic total pelvic exenteration (LTPE) using transanal minimal invasive surgery technique with bilateral en bloc lateral lymph node dissection for advanced primary rectal cancer after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. The total operative time was 760 min, and the estimated blood loss was 200 ml...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Robotically assisted laparoscopy has been introduced in the armamentarium of gynaecologic oncology surgeons. A lot of studies compared robotic surgery and laparotomy when the real issue is to demonstrate the interest and added value of robotically assisted laparoscopy versus standard laparoscopy. In this review, we will describe the most meaningful indications and advantages of robotically assisted laparoscopy in gynaecologic oncology. RECENT FINDINGS: The learning curve for advanced procedures in robot-assisted laparoscopy is shorter and easier than with the standard laparoscopy, especially for beginners...

UNLABELLED: Perineal hernia is defined as a protrusion of intra-abdominal viscera through a defect in the pelvic floor. Primary hernias are extremely rare; secondary (postoperative) hernias following pelvic surgery, especially abdominoperineal resection or pelvic exenteration, are more common. Impaired perineal wound healing and neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy in cancer patients are defined as main risk factors. A growing incidence of this complication is expected in connection with an increasing use of laparoscopic approaches and ELAPE...

BACKGROUND: In locally advanced pelvic malignancies, there is often involvement of urological organs, necessitating resection and reconstruction, which can be associated with significant complications. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 20 patients undergoing urological reconstructions during pelvic oncological surgeries from January 2004 to December 2013. All patients had imaging-proven involvement of at least one urological organ preoperatively. Primary outcome was urological complication rate...

OBJECTIVE: Ablative surgery for vulvar cancer can involve the resection of perineum, vagina, urethra, groins, mons pubis, and abdominal wall creating complex defects. In our opinion, ALT flap is an ideal flap for reconstruction, because of low incidence of complications, long pedicle outside the radiotherapy field, capability of carrying fascia and muscle, possibility of sensate reconstruction, and low donor site morbidity. The purpose of this report is to describe our experience with ALT flap for reconstruction after vulvar cancer extirpative surgery, discussing our indications for complex defects and focusing on its versatility...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric genitourinary rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) accounts for 25 % of all pediatric soft tissue sarcomas. The treatment of these tumors has shifted over time from debilitating radical exenteration to organ-sparing techniques using multimodal therapy. Our review aims to summarize recent relevant literature regarding the current treatment practices of pediatric genitourinary RMS and how these practices have shifted over time. METHODS: PubMed database search was utilized to identify relevant literature from 1997 to 2015 relating to the treatment of pediatric genitourinary RMS with emphasis on organ preservation and maintaining organ function...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The efficacy and safety of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with highly advanced rectal cancer for whom radical surgery was considered difficult were evaluated. METHODOLOGY: From June 2007 to February 2011, 10 advanced lower rectal cancer patients with factors contraindicative of curative surgery with total mesenteric excision were eligible for this study. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of modified OPTIMOX1 (mFOLFOX6 and sLV5FU2 alternating administration) plus bevacizumab was administered...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this review is to assess the preoperative management in case of recurrent cervical cancer, to assess patients for a surgical curative treatment. METHODS: English publications were searched using PubMed and Cochrane Library. RESULTS: In the purpose of curative surgery, pelvic exenteration required clear margins. Today, only half of pelvic exenteration procedures showed postoperative clear margins. Modern imaging (RMI and Pet-CT) does not allow defining local extension of microcopic disease, and thus postoperative clear margins...
