BACKGROUND: Sentinel node navigation surgery (SNNS) in early gastric cancer (EGC) is technically feasible according to previous literature, however its long-term oncologic safety has not been reported. METHODS: A single-center, single-arm, phase II trial was conducted to determine the oncologic outcomes of laparoscopic sentinel node (SN) biopsy in clinical stage T1N0M0 gastric cancer patients. Cases with positive SNs on intraoperative pathologic examination underwent conventional gastrectomy with radical lymphadenectomy (SN-positive group), whereas those with negative SNs underwent laparoendoscopic-limited gastric resections without further lymph node dissections (SN-negative group)...

BACKGROUND: Prophylactic central compartment neck dissection (pCCND) in addition to total thyroidectomy (TT) includes removal of central compartment lymph nodes in the absence of clinical involvement on preoperative and intraoperative evaluation. The data regarding the influence of pCCND on oncologic outcomes and surgical complication rates is mixed and, therefore, is the focus of this analysis. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature on total thyroidectomy with prophylactic central compartment neck dissection (TT + pCCND) from January 1990 to October 2017 identified 221 abstracts of which 17 met inclusion criteria and were reviewed (1 randomized-control trial, 13 retrospective cohort studies, and 3 meta-analyses)...

REVIEW
Pascal-Alexandre Thomas
Appropriate lymph node (LN) assessment is a hallmark of surgical quality of curative intent operations for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Even in the era of extensive pre-treatment work-up including routine PET-scanning and brain imaging, and selective invasive LN evaluation, unexpected LN metastases are found at surgery in more than 10% of patients with a cT1aN0 tumor. Systematic lymphadenectomy minimizes the risk of leaving tumor-LN behind and thus the risk of an incomplete resection, and provides the most truthful pTNM, which is decisive in directing adjuvant chemotherapy...

Background: The thyroid gland is resistant to microbial infection, because of its organ characteristics such as encapsulation, iodine content, and rich blood supply. Therefore, acute suppurative thyroiditis (AST), as a bacterial infection of the thyroid gland, is rarely seen. AST typically takes places on the left side the neck region in children, because of the coincidence of the left piriform sinus fistula, as a most common route of infection. AST is also usually seen in immunocompromised hosts...

BACKGROUND: A few reports have described the effectiveness of resection for recurrent cholangiocarcinoma. However, none have described resection of synchronous pulmonary metastasis from distal cholangiocarcinoma. We report the first case, to the best of our knowledge, of a slow-growing synchronous pulmonary metastasis from distal cholangiocarcinoma resected 3.5 years after the initial surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 67-year-old Japanese man with a diagnosis of distal cholangiocarcinoma was referred to our hospital...

INTRODUCTION: The evaluation of lymph nodes and the role of groin dissection for groin sarcomas has been controversial where there have not been previous studies or guidelines published. In this study, we aim to first formulate a clinical approach in the evaluation of regional lymph nodal metastases. Second, we aim to also evaluate the role of regional lymphadenectomy in the setting of pathologically involved regional lymph nodes for groin sarcomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 43 consecutive patients with groin sarcomas underwent treatment at the National Cancer Centre Singapore between 2002 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: The most common method of breast reconstruction in the United States today is implant-based reconstruction. However, reported complication rates are high, from 30% to 50%. Thus, it is important for reconstructive surgeons to identify factors associated with or contributing to wound complications after breast reconstruction. This study sought to identify associations between axillary lymph node dissection and postoperative wound complications in implant-based breast reconstruction...

There is no previous predictive model to assess risk of nonsentinel lymph node metastases (NSLN) in sentinel lymph node (SLN)-positive breast cancer patients after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAT). Our goal was to develop a new predictive model for SLN-positive patients after NAT, and validate this new model. A series of 513 patients with metastases in SLN who received NAT were used to evaluate factors affecting NSLN status. Logistic regression analysis was performed to develop a predictive model, which was validated by a subsequent prospective 138 patients...

Internal mammary lymphadenopathy may develop in breast cancer patients with silicone implants. Differential diagnosis includes malignant recurrence, infections, inflammations and granulomatous deposit. We report a case of internal mammary lymphadenopathy, in a patient with the previous history of breast cancer, requiring a tissue diagnosis. We performed a Robotic lymph nodes dissection of the left internal mammary. Final pathology diagnosis was positive for silicone granulomatous lymphadenitis secondary to silicone breast implants inserted after mastectomy for breast cancer...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of lesions using expanded indications for early gastric cancer (EGC) has been accepted as an alternative treatment for cases without lymph node metastasis. We herein report a rare case of metastatic lymph node tissue in mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC) after curative ESD using the expanded pathological criteria. A 70-year-old man underwent ESD for two EGC lesions. A pathological examination revealed lesions that required curative resection based on the expanded pathological criteria of the Japanese classification of gastric carcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Reduced-port laparoscopic gastrectomy further minimizes the invasiveness of laparoscopic gastrectomy, thereby improving patient quality of life. However, suboptimal ergonomics and visualization are challenges to performing reduced-port laparoscopy. As the application of a robotic surgical system may help overcome these challenges, the present study was performed to evaluate the short-term outcomes of reduced-port totally robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy. METHOD: An initial 40 consecutive gastric cancer patients treated with reduced-port totally robotic distal subtotal gastrectomy with lymph node dissection from February 2016 to February 2017 were retrospectively reviewed...

To reduce the invasive nature of extended pelvic lymph node dissections (ePLND) in prostate cancer, we have developed a multicolor fluorescence guidance approach that enables the discrimination between prostate draining lymph nodes (LNs) and lower limb draining LNs. Methods: In five porcine models multispectral-fluorescence guidance was performed using da Vinci Si- and Xi-robot consoles. They received fluorescein into the lower limb(s) and indocyanine green (ICG)-nanocolloid into the prostate. Results: Fluorescein was detected in 29 LNs (average of 3...

OBJECTIVES: In case of large breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) can be performed to reduce the size of the tumor and thus perform a conservative surgery. The place of the sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in case of NAC is still debated. The main aim of this study is to assess the risk of axillary recurrence after negative SLNB before NAC. METHODS: It is a retrospective, observational and uni-centric study. We included 18 to 80-year-old patients with unilateral breast cancer requiring a NAC and with a negative SLNB before NAC...

Carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid is an extremely rare entity accounting for only 1% of all reported ectopic thyroids. Here, we report a case of carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid, which has been successfully managed by transoral resection and bilateral neck dissections. A lingual mass 4-cm in diameter with calcification was incidentally detected by computed tomography at medical check-up. No thyroid tissue was observed in normal position. Ultrasound examination showed bilateral multiple lymphadenopathies...
