Malignant melanoma is a serious disease, the incidence of which rises. Since the most important treatment method is sufficient wide skin and subcutaneous tissue excision, plastic surgeon is often the only specialist who is able to close the resulting defect. This paper deals with recommendations and treatment options for malignant melanoma from the point of a plastic surgeon. The primary width of excised safety rim of healthy tissue with regards to the depth of melanoma invasion differs. Safety margin is 0...

A 76-year-old female underwent breast-conserving surgery of the right breast and sentinel lymph node biopsy for primary breast cancer. Three years later, mammography and ultrasonography showed a small nodule in the right breast. There was nothing abnormal in the left breast. Three months later, she complained of a huge and rapid growing mass in the left breast. Malignant cells were obtained on fine needle aspiration biopsy in the right breast tumor. But it was not possible to diagnose whether the left breast tumor was benign or malignant on fine needle aspiration biopsy and needle biopsy...

We report a case of a non-invasive ductal carcinoma revealed on long-term follow-up of spontaneous nipple discharge. The patient, a 36-year-old woman, had noticed spontaneous nipple discharge from both breasts over a 3-year period. Mammography and ultrasonography did not reveal any lesions in the breasts. The nipple discharge from her left breast stopped 36 months after initial clinical assessment. However, the nipple discharges from her right breast transformed into a bloody discharge from a single duct. Ultrasonography showed a tumor, 6mm in diameter, in the upper-outer quadrant of her right breast...

Recent publication of the results of clinical trials in which lymph node dissection was not associated with any survival benefit in patients with sentinel node metastasis makes it necessary to reconsider the treatment of patients with melanoma. This article provides an update on the available evidence on the diverse factors (routes of metastatic spread, predictors, adjuvant therapy, etc.) that must be considered when treating patients with sentinel node-positive melanoma. The authors propose a decision-making algorithm for use in this clinical setting...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative evaluation of the axillary sentinel lymph node (SLN) in patients with breast carcinoma reduces the need of re-operations in cases where an axillary completion lymph node dissection (CLND) is indicated. Different methods have been used to determine the SLN status intraoperatively, e.g. frozen section histology (FS) and touch imprint cytology (TIC). The sensitivity of intraoperative TIC examination on SLN is not consistent between different studies and varies according to different tumor histologic subtypes, tumor size and the age of the patient...

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common skin cancers and can lead to patient death. Early diagnosis of node metastasis is a major goal for dermatologists and oncologists. The sentinel lymph node procedure has been proposed to improve this issue but is still debated. To evaluate the efficacy and the impact of this technique on prognosis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, 37 patients (Saint Louis Hospital, Paris - France) who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy and 290 cases from the literature were analyzed...

As for all types of cancer, the incidence of melanoma increases with age. However, naevus counts (the principal risk factor for melanoma) decrease with age; hence the relationship between ageing and melanoma is complex. Subjects who maintain a high naevus count after the age of 50 years are more likely to be affected by melanoma, as their lesions do not senesce. Longer telomere length, which is strongly related to age, is linked to high naevus counts/melanoma risk; thus melanoma biology is influenced by factors that slow down ageing...

Compared with imaging in the visible (400 - 650 nm) and near-infrared window I (NIR-I, 650 - 900 nm) regions, imaging in near-infrared window II (NIR-II, 1,000-1,700 nm) is a highly promising in vivo imaging modality with improved resolution and deeper tissue penetration. In this work, a small molecule NIR-II dye,5,5'-(1H,5H-benzo[1,2-c:4,5-c'] bis[1,2,5]thiadiazole)-4,8-diyl)bis(N,N-bis(4-(3-((tert-butyldimethylsilyl)oxy)propyl)phenyl) thiophen-2-amine), has been successfully encapsulated into phospholipid vesicles to prepare a probe CQS1000...

The natural amino acid 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is a protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) precursor and a new-generation photosensitive substance that accumulates specifically in cancer cells. When indocyanine green (ICG) is irradiated with near-infrared (NIR) light, it shifts to a higher energy state and emits infrared light with a longer wavelength than the irradiated NIR light. Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) using ALA and ICG-based NIR fluorescence imaging has emerged as a new diagnostic technique. Specifically, in laparoscopic examinations for serosa-invading advanced gastric cancer, peritoneal metastases could be detected by ALA-PDD, but not by conventional visible-light imaging...

PURPOSE: Pancreatic cancer is the fourth cause of death by cancer worldwide. Lymph node (LN) involvement is known to be the main prognostic factor. However, lymphatic anatomy is complex and only partially characterized. The aim of the study was to study the pancreatic lymphatic system using computer-assisted anatomic dissection (CAAD) technique and also to update CAAD technique by automatizing slice alignment. METHODS: We dissected three human fetuses aged from 18 to 34 WA...

Sentinel lymph node metastasis is a prognostic indicator for systemic tumor spread in many types of cancers, and tumor lymphangiogenesis correlates with reduced survival. Consequently, lymphatic vessels have been suggested to promote tumor progression in multiple ways. Tumor lymphangiogenesis occurs both in primary tumors and at distant (pre-) metastatic sites, and facilitates lymphatic invasion and tumor cell dissemination. Lymphatic vessels have also emerged as regulators of tumor immunity, transporting tumor antigens to lymph nodes and directly interacting with immune cells...

INTRODUCTION: Management of the axilla in invasive breast cancer (IBC) has shifted away from more radical surgery such as axillary lymph node dissection (ALND), towards less invasive procedures, such as sentinel lymph node biopsy. Because of this shift, we hypothesize that there has been a national downward trend in ALND procedures, subsequently impacting surgical trainee exposure to this procedure using the ACS-NSQIP database to evaluate this. METHODS: Women with IBC were identified in the ACS-NSQIP database from 2007 to 2014...

AIM: The standard-of-care in breast cancer (BC) with positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis includes complete axillary lymph node dissection (ALND); however, almost half of such cases have no further tumor burden. This study aimed to assess the clinicopathological factors that predict non-SLN metastasis to define subgroups of SLN-positive patients in whom the axilla may be staged by SLN biopsy alone, while avoiding unnecessary overtreatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The records of 191 patients with histologically-proven primary BC who underwent a positive (SLN) biopsy between 2005 and 2017 were reviewed...

Ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (US-FNAC) is used to evaluate the involvement of lymph nodes in various malignant diseases. Its value in detecting sentinel lymph node (SN) metastasis preoperatively in melanoma patients is controversial and is the subject of this study. In this prospective validation study, 91 consecutive patients with melanoma clinical stage I (n=64) and II (n=27) were examined with US-FNAC before SN biopsy from 2012 to 2014 at a tertiary center. All patients underwent lymphoscintigraphy before the US-FNAC...

PURPOSE: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) alone has thus become an accepted surgical approach for patients with limited axillary metastatic disease. We investigated to what extent isolated tumor cells (ITC) or micrometastasis in SLNBs is associated with proven tumor cells or metastasis in non-sentinel lymph nodes. Furthermore, we investigated the feasibility of SLNB in multifocal and multicentric tumors as both entities have been considered a contraindication for this technique. METHODS: 1214 women suffering from T1 and T2 invasive breast cancer, with clinically and sonographically insuspect axillary status and undergoing primary breast cancer surgery including SLNB and axillary staging in case of SLN (sentinel lymph node) metastases, were recruited into this multicentered study...
