Neuroendocrine tumors in the digestive tract are rare, however their incidences increased obviously for the past few years. The purpose of this paper is to elucidate the surgical management of locally advanced digestive tract neuroendocrine neoplasms(NENs) with or without liver metastasis and to discuss the present classification of gastrointestinal NENs in order to provide reference for clinicians. WHO re-classified the gastroenteropancreatic NENs in 2010, but this classification remains many questions and needs further clinical trials to answer...

BACKGROUND: In the recent years, considerable improvements have come in biomechanical knowledge about the role of elbow stabilizers. In particular, the complex interactions among the different stabilizers when injured at the same time have been better understood. Anyway, uncertainties about both nomenclature and classification still exist in the definition of the different patterns of instability. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The authors examine the literature of the last 130 years about elbow instability classification, analyzing the intuitions and the value of each of them...

More than 800 oesophageal tumours are diagnosed each year in Hungary. The disease is characterized by high mortality. The curative treatment traditionally surgical, although the study results of recent decades pointed out that patient outcome can be improved with the proper application of radio- and chemotherapy. The diverse study designs, the low number of recruited patients and the sometimes conflicting results make the determination of optimal treatment difficult. The aim of this work is to facilitate the choice of treatment modality with the best outcome, especially with the view of medical oncologists...

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is one of the most common solid cancers worldwide. It is mainly caused by exposure to tobacco smoke and alcohol as well as infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV). The prognosis is poor, especially once it recurs or metastasizes. Current therapeutic options include surgery, radio- and chemotherapy. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors are so far the only targeted agents that have been approved in head and neck cancer. Primary or secondary resistance is frequent or will eventually develop...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)-assisted lung parenchymal transection through thoracotomy and thoracoscopy. Twelve domestic pigs underwent RFA-assisted lingulectomy: six through thoracotomy (group A), and six with thoracoscopy (group B). There was no mortality, no bleeding, or air leak intra- or postoperatively in either of the groups, and no conversion to open thoracotomy in group B. Group A had longer operating period and more pleural adhesions. A barotrauma, a skin burn, and a localized infection were observed in this group...

Whether it is rock playing in the background during a surgery, cool jazz that wafts from our office computer speakers as we write up our clinical notes, or the soaring of a symphony on the radio that inspires that perfect flourish to an article, music is woven throughout much of our clinical and academic lives. For the five of us, however, music alternates between the background and foreground in our lives as health professions educators. Music balances the working day, illuminates our research, and reconciles the utility of our training with the originality of our practice...

This communication enumerates the current uses and potential areas where PET could be clinically utilized for developing "precision medicine" type model in thyroid carcinoma. (1) In routine clinics, PET imaging (with fluorodeoxyglucose [FDG]) is utilized to investigate patients of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) with high thyroglobulin and negative iodine scintigraphy (TENIS) and in medullary carcinoma thyroid (MCT) when the tumor markers (eg, calcitonin and carcino embryonic antigen [CEA]) are raised postoperatively (PET with FDG, (68)Ga-DOTA-NOC/TATE, FDOPA)...

Patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) usually have poor prognosis because current monotherapy including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy (RT) are not effective. Combination therapy may be effective to overcome this clinical problem. Here, we proposed the combination of sorafenib and RT, which have been applied in HCC treatment, could improve the treatment outcome of HCC. Our previous study showed that sorafenib could suppress the expression of NF-κB which is related to the chemo- and radio-resistance...

BACKGROUND: In patients who exhibit a complete clinical response after radio-chemotherapy for rectal cancer, the standard surgical approach might constitute overtreatment. The aim of this study is to analyse the outcomes of anorectal function and quality of life after transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) in irradiated patients with complete clinical response. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2007 and 2014, 84 patients who were diagnosed with stage T2-T3-T4 N0 rectal cancer before chemoradiotherapy showed a complete clinical response to neoadjuvant therapy and underwent TEM...

Recanalization of chronic occlusion of the common carotid artery (CCA) in patients with a history of neck irradiation is challenging, both for vascular surgeons and interventional neuroradiologists. We describe a case of successful stenting of radio induced chronic occlusion of the right CCA in a 41-year-old patient with neurological deterioration and minor stroke due to cerebral hypoperfusion caused by concomitant bilateral arterial occlusions. Direct surgery and surgical bypass were considered contraindicated...

Radio-guided surgery has been developed for application in those disease scheduled for surgical management, particularly in areas of complex anatomy. This is based on the use of pre-operative scintigraphic planar, tomographic and fused SPECT/CT images, and the possibility of 3D reconstruction for the subsequent intraoperative locating of active lesions using handheld devices (detection probes, gamma cameras, etc.). New tracers and technologies have also been incorporated into these surgical procedures. The combination of visual and acoustic signals during the intraoperative procedure has become possible with new portable imaging modalities...

INTRODUCTION: Supra-costal Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) procedure has now become an established standard of care in patients with renal stone disease, in terms of morbidity, stone clearance, duration of stay and shorter convalescence period. Gone are the days when supracostal punctures were considered to be associated with a high morbidity. With increased expertise gained in performing multiple punctures and further refinements in focusing techniques, more and more of these procedures are being performed with an intention to achieve a maximum stone clearance with least morbidity...

In recent years, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has emerged as a new and promising non-invasive and non-ionizing ablative technique for the treatment of localized solid tumors. Extensive pre-clinical and clinical studies have evidenced that, in addition to direct destruction of the primary tumor, HIFU-thermoablation may elicit long-term systemic host anti-tumor immunity. In particular, an important consequence of HIFU treatment includes the release of tumor-associated antigens (TAAs), the secretion of immuno-suppressing factors by cancer cells and the induction of cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity...

Preliminary clinical studies of anti-programmed cell death-1 (anti-PD-1) therapy in gastro-esophageal cancers have suggested promising single-agent activity. In patients who received prior treatment for advanced disease, pembrolizumab has been associated with a response rate of 20% in programmed cell death-1 ligand 1 (PD-L1)-positive tumors, and nivolumab with a response rate of 12% in unselected tumors. Both agents yielded a median duration of response lasting ~6-7 months. PD-L1 expression and microsatellite instability (MSI) have emerged as potential predictive markers for PD-1/PD-L1 blockade...
