BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer (GC) relapse can occur even if curative resection is achieved. Biomarkers predicting recurrence are needed to provide appropriate postoperative surveillance and perioperative therapeutic strategy. METHODS: A global expression profiling was performed using tissues from GC patients with synchronous liver-confined metastasis. Family with sequence similarity 46, member C (FAM46C), was identified as a candidate biomarker. mRNA expression analysis, direct nucleotide sequencing, bisulfite sequencing and copy number assays for FAM46C were performed with eleven GC cell lines...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with high perioperative mortality. A series of AKI research breakthroughs are worth mentioning. First, in 2003, serum and urine biomarkers specific to AKI were identified. These biomarkers have contributed to early detection, prevention, and treatment of AKI. In 2004, AKI severity was defined with the Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss, and End-stage kidney disease (RIFLE) criteria, which was developed by the International Consensus Conference Workgroup of the Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative...

Background. No predictive or prognostic biomarker is available for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) undergoing perioperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT). Members of the human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER) family of receptor tyrosine kinases EGFR (HER1, ERBB1), HER2 (ERBB2), HER3 (ERBB3), and HER4 (ERBB4) are therapeutic targets in several cancers. The analysis was performed to assess expression levels and study the potential prognostic impact for disease-free and overall survival in patients with LARC...

As treatment strategies for patients with colorectal cancer advance, there has now become an ever-increasing need for multidisciplinary teams to care for these patients. Recent investigations into the timing and duration of perioperative therapy, as well as, the rise of molecular profiling have led to more systemic chemotherapeutic options. The most efficacious use, in terms of timing and patient selection, of these therapies in the setting of modern operative and radiotherapy techniques requires the generation of care teams discussing cases at multidisciplinary conferences...

Before non-cardiac surgery, evaluation of cardiac function is no frequent part of surgical treatment. European societies of anesthesiology and cardiology published consensus-guidelines in 2014 to present a reasonable approach for preoperative evaluation. This paper intends to differentiate the composite of perioperative risk and to display the guidelines methodical approach to handle it. Features to identify patients at risk from an ageing population with comorbidities, are the classification of surgical risk, functional capacity and risk indices...

BACKGROUND: Several prior studies have linked serum prealbumin (PA) as a predictor for perioperative infection. However, whether peripheral blood PA levels can be used as an indicator of stroke-associated infection (SAI) is still unclear. In this study, we attempt to find whether serum PA is a meaningful predictor in SAI after an ischemic stroke, so as to provide theoretical basis for clinical treatment. METHODS: Consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke that were admitted to our hospital were enrolled and serum PA was collected...

Despite recent advances in surgical techniques and perioperative management, the prognosis of pancreatic cancer (PCa) remains extremely poor. To provide optimal treatment for each patient with Pca, superior biomarkers are urgently needed in all phases of management from early detection to staging, treatment monitoring, and prognosis. In the blood of patients with cancer, circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs), such as DNA, mRNA, and noncoding RNA have been recognized. In the recent years, their presence in the blood has encouraged researchers to investigate their potential use as novel blood biomarkers, and numerous studies have demonstrated their potential clinical utility as a biomarker for certain types of cancer...

BACKGROUND: Thrombocytopenia after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been evaluated in several studies, but the pathomechanisms behind this phenomenon are not well described. Here, we assess the influence of TAVI on hemostasis-related biomarkers and their potential role in post-TAVI thrombocytopenia. METHODS AND RESULTS: We assessed perioperative platelet counts in 307 patients undergoing transfemoral TAVI. Additionally, hemostasis-related biomarkers including thrombin-anti-thrombin complex (TAT), prothrombin activation fragment 1+2 (F1+2), plasmin-α₂-antiplasmin complex (PAP), and d-dimer were assessed in a subcohort of 35 patients...

Gastric cancer is a highly fatal malignancy, and surgery alone often does not provide a cure, even for relatively early stages of disease. Various approaches have been adopted around the world to improve surgical outcomes; however, there currently is no global consensus with regard to the extent of surgery or the timing and choice of chemotherapy and radiation. Here we review the evidence supporting current approaches to resectable gastric cancer, including discussion of the optimal extent of surgery and lymphadenectomy, adjuvant chemotherapy, postoperative chemotherapy with chemoradiation, and perioperative chemotherapy...

The incidence of acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery (CS-AKI) ranges from 33% to 94% and is associated with a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. The etiology is suggested to be multifactorial and related to almost all aspects of perioperative management. Numerous studies have reported the risk factors and risk scores and novel biomarkers of AKI have been investigated to facilitate the subclinical diagnosis of AKI. Based on the known independent risk factors, many preventive interventions to reduce the risk of CS-AKI have been tested...

Cisplatin is a widely used anticancer drug, but its nephrotoxicity is a serious problem. To examine whether the novel biomarker, urinary vanin-1, could predict reduction in renal function after dosing of cisplatin. We conducted a prospective single-center pilot study of 24 patients with urothelial carcinoma who received cisplatin-based chemotherapy between 2012 and 2015. The primary outcome was a 20% or greater decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from baseline within the first 6days of cisplatin...

PURPOSE: In critically ill patients, length of antibiotic treatment can be effectively guided by procalcitonin (PCT) protocols. International sepsis guidelines and guidelines on antibiotic stewardship strategies recommend PCT as helpful laboratory marker for a rational use of antibiotics. A number of studies and meta-analyses have confirmed the effectiveness of PCT-protocols for shortening antibiotic treatment without compromising clinical outcome in critically ill patients. But in clinical practice, there is still uncertainty how to interpret PCT levels and how to adjust antibiotic treatment in various infectious situations, especially in the perioperative period...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we discuss the latest updates on perioperative acute kidney injury (AKI) and the specific considerations that are relevant to different surgeries and patient populations. RECENT FINDINGS: AKI diagnosis is constantly evolving. New biomarkers detect AKI early and shed a light on the possible cause of AKI. Hypotension, even for a short duration, is associated with perioperative AKI. The debate on the deleterious effects of chloride-rich solutions is still far from conclusion...
