The one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) assay was initially developed for the intraoperative assessment of sentinel lymph node metastases in breast cancer. This assay measures cytokeratin 19 (CK19) mRNA copy number and is widely used in hospitals. The results of the IBCSG 23-01, ACOSOG Z0011, and AMAROS trials demonstrated that no further axillary dissection is required for patients with sentinel lymph nodes that tested positive for cancer, which has led to a decreasing trend in the need for intraoperative assessment of lymph nodes...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric stump cancer accounts for 14% of all gastric carcinomas. Originally this term included patients who previously underwent surgery due to peptic ulcer disease but today gastric stump cancer also includes patients diagnosed some time after primary gastric resection due to gastric cancer. The incidence is increasing. Gastric stump cancer is associated with poor prognosis and its reported resecability is around 40%. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data of 7 patients with a preoperatively histologically confirmed stump cancer who had been operated at the Department of Surgery at Nový Jičín Hospital during 2006-2014...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal metastasis (PM) is considered a terminal and incurable disease. In the last 30 years, cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) radically changed the therapeutic approach for these patients and is regarded as the standard of care for pseudomyxoma peritonei from appendiceal cancer and peritoneal mesotheliomas. Improved survival has also been reported in treating PM from ovarian, gastric, and colorectal cancers. However, PM often seriously complicates the clinical course of patients with other primary digestive and non-digestive cancers...

We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of intravenous (IV) plus intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy compared to intravenous (IV) chemotherapy alone for patients with gastric cancer. Electronic databases were searched up to June 2013. Two authors independently selected studies, extracted data and assessed the quality of included studies. The GRADE System was adopted to rate the level of evidence. Of 392 citations, five RCTs involving 1072 patients were included. Overall, a significant improvement in in one- and three- and five-year survival rate was observed in the IV plus IP chemotherapy group (3 RCTs, n = 360, RR = 1...

An 80-year-old Japanese woman with chronic renal failure was diagnosed with gastric cancer and 2 primary colon cancers. The colon cancers were treated with laparoscopic colectomy, but the gastric cancer metastasized to the liver with inoperable dissemination. After operative treatment of the colon cancers, 1 year of combination chemotherapy consisting of tegafur/gimeracil/oteracil (TS-1®) and nab-PTX was administered to treat the advanced gastric cancer. Tegafur is a well-known prodrug of 5-FU. Serum densitometry of 5-FU was performed to determine the correct dose of TS-1®...

OBJECTIVE: Gastric cancer is often diagnosed at an advanced stage and surgery alone cannot guarantee satisfactory results. Both chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and chemotherapy (CT) are used in postoperative therapy. However, it is controversial whether CRT or CT is better after D2 lymphadenectomy. In this study we investigated the efficacy of adjuvant CRT versus CT in stage III gastric cancer patients treated with R0 gastrectomy and D2 lymph node dissection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data from 92 patients diagnosed with gastric adenocarcinoma and treated with surgery followed by adjuvant treatment were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTS: Recently, we reported that diagnostic laparoscopy with photodynamic diagnosis using oral 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA-PDD) is a promising tool for diagnosing early peritoneal metastases in gastric cancer. The present study evaluated the usefulness of adding ALA-PDD to conventional diagnostic laparoscopy and assessed the association of the ALA-PDD results with peritoneal fluid cytology and molecular diagnostic testing. METHODS: Diagnostic laparoscopy using sequential white light (WL) and ALA-PDD observations was performed in 52 advanced gastric cancer patients, and the sensitivity of ALA-PDD for detecting peritoneal disease was compared to WL...

BACKGROUND: Intraperitoneal administration of paclitaxel (PTX) can elicit a marked clinical response in peritoneal metastases of gastric cancer. METHODS: In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the clinical outcome of 17 patients who underwent R0 resection with D2 dissection for advanced gastric cancer with macroscopic serosal exposure and received intraperitoneal PTX as adjuvant therapy. RESULTS: A pathological study revealed that the depth of invasion of the primary tumor was pT4a or pT4b in 10 cases, and that the pN stage was more than pN2 in 8 cases...

Metastases to the stomach from an extra-digestive neoplasm are an unusual event, identified in less than 2% of cancer patients at autopsy (between 1.7% to 5%). The stomach may be involved by hematogenous spread from a distant primary tumor (most commonly lung, breast and melanoma). Tumors of neighboring organs, such as esophagus, pancreas and gallbladder, may reach the stomach by continuity or by lymphatic-hematogenous spread. Endoscopic routine studies with biopsies have improved the diagnosis of this pathology...

Gastric cancer is a complex disease that involves a range of biological individuals and tumors with histopathological features. The pathogenesis of this disease is multi-factorial and includes the interaction of genetic predisposition with environmental factors. Gastric cancer is normally diagnosed in advanced stages where there are few alternatives to offer and the prognosis is difficult to establish. Metastasis is the leading cause of cancer deaths. Identification of key genes and signaling pathways involved in metastasis and recurrence could predict these events and thereby identify therapeutic targets...

REVIEW

Despite the relatively slow start of laparoscopic pancreatectomy relative to other laparoscopic resections, an increasing number of these procedures are being performed around the world. Operations that were once considered impossible to perform laparoscopically, such as pancreaticoduodenectomy and central pancreatectomy are gaining momentum. Technology continues to improve, as does surgical experience and prowess. There are both enough experience and data (though retrospective) to confirm that LDP with or without spleen preservation appears to be a safe treatment for benign or noninvasive lesions of the pancreas...

INTRODUCTION: Carcinomatous meningitis is a serious complication of advanced stage solid tumours, which may become more common with improved survival. CASE REPORTS: A 53-year-old woman with a recent history of breast cancer (pT2pN2M0) had been treated by mastectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She presented with weakness, diplopia and vertigo raising the possibility of vertebrobasilar ischaemia or an intracranial mass. In another patient, a 62-year-old man with hypertension, a stenotic common bile duct had been diagnosed when examined for abdominal complaints...

Degradable starch microspheres (DSMs) provide transient occlusion of small arteries and are thought to improve the therapeutic effect of anticancer drugs. Irinotecan (CPT-11) is one of the most effective anticancer agents. We herein report cases with liver metastases treated with transarterial chemoembolization with DSM, CPT-11, and mitomycin-C (DSM-CPT therapy). Five patients underwent DSM-CPT therapy for liver metastases that originated from colorectal cancer for four and gastric cancer for one. They all lack indication for surgery...

BACKGROUND: Extension of lymphadenectomy in gastric cancer is controversial, and preoperative diagnosis of lymph node metastases (LNM) is difficult. Therefore, knowledge-based systems such as the Maruyama computer program (MCP) are being developed. MCP shows good prognostic value for the compartments; however, for different lymph node groups (LNG) there are a large number of false positives. The aim of this study was to evaluate artificial neural networks (ANN) for predicting LNM in patients with gastric cancer and to compare the predictive power with that of MCP...
