BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Neoadjuvant chemoradiation for rectal cancer is associated with lower local recurrence rates. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of neoadjuvant therapy on perioperative complications in patients with rectal cancer. METHODS: Using the ACS-NSQIP database (2005-2012), a propensity score was used to match 3592 patients with rectal cancer receiving neoadjuvant therapy to 3592 patients undergoing surgery alone. The association between neoadjuvant chemoradiation and perioperative outcomes was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Although some studies suggest that breast-conserving therapy (BCT) shows better psychosocial outcomes than mastectomy in patients with primary breast cancer, little is known about the outcomes of these surgical options in recurrent breast cancer. We investigated differences in overall survival and re-recurrence rates as well as psychosocial outcomes among patients who underwent BCT or mastectomy after the diagnosis of recurrent breast cancer in a single-center setting. METHODS: 124 of 186 eligible patients who underwent surgical treatment for breast cancer recurrence completed the questionnaires on quality of life (EORTC QLQ-C30 and -BR23), fear of progression (PA-F-KF), anxiety and depression (HADS), and body image (BIS)...

Context: Options for chronic treatment of hypoparathyroidism include calcitriol, recombinant human parathyroid hormone and high dose vitamin D (D2). D2 is used in a minority because of fear of prolonged hypercalcemia and renal toxicity. There is a paucity of recent data about D2 use in hypoparathyroidism. Objective: Compare renal function, hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia in patients with hypoparathyroidism treated chronically with either D2 or calcitriol. Design, setting, patients: A retrospective study of patients with hypoparathyroidism treated at University of Maryland Hospital...

Behçet's disease (BD) is a multisystemic disorder of unknown etiology mainly defined by recurrent oral aphthosis, genital ulcers, and chronic relapsing bilateral uveitis, all of which represent the "stigmata" of disease. However, many other organs including the vascular, neurological, musculoskeletal, and gastrointestinal systems can be affected. The gastrointestinal involvement in Behçet's disease (GIBD), along with the neurological and vascular ones, represents the most feared clinical manifestation of BD and shares many symptoms with inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a frequent cause of death and serious disability with a risk extending far beyond the acute phase of the disease. Anticoagulant treatment reduces the risk for death and recurrent VTE after a first PE. The optimal duration of anticoagulation after a first episode of PE remains controversial and should be made on an individual basis, balancing the estimated risk for recurrence without anticoagulant treatment against bleeding risk under anticoagulation. Current recommendations on duration of anticoagulation are based on a 3% per year risk of major bleeding expected during long-term warfarin treatment...

BACKGROUND: Kidney transplantation in recipients with a previous malignancy is often deferred 2-5 years after cancer treatment due to fear of cancer recurrence. In Norway, the required waiting period has been 1 year. METHODS: We compared patient and graft survival of recipients with pretransplant cancer to the outcomes of matched recipients without such cancer (comparators) using Cox regression. RESULTS: From 1963 to 2010, 377 of 5867 recipients (6...

Emerging and reemerging infections have become prevalent in the United States since the 1970s, causing illness, death, and fear among the public. The published literature was reviewed to offer a perspective on risk factors for disease acquisition and to allow a prediction of the next microbial assault after Ebola and Zika. Four well-integrated factors likely will contribute simultaneously: animals colonized or infected by pathogens capable of human transmission, microbes recurrently changing their virulence, a growing number of susceptible people, and climatic and environmental factors encouraging disease transmission...

BACKGROUND: The use of implants is still the most common procedure for breast reconstruction because they are easy, less painful than tissue transplants, and do not need a donor site. However, it is challenging to find a suitable implant for patients with small breasts, and some women fear foreign bodies and possible complications or reoperations. Autologous breast reconstruction using the pedicled latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap without an implant provides a good option for Asian women with small breasts...

252 Background: Unlike breast cancer support group literature, there is no data in women with gynecologic cancer who have different perspectives about their disease and therapy. We have a well-established, grass root level support group unique to women with gynecologic cancers that meets monthly. Our goal was to investigate perceived benefits of support group participation. METHODS: We developed an original questionnaire to evaluate the CSRA Gynecologic Oncology Support Group (CGOSG) participant's perceived effects of attending the group on their side effects and disease status which was distributed to patients attending CGOSG meetings...

PURPOSE: The worst-case scenario (WCS) exercise is part of a manualized cognitive-existential group intervention for fear of cancer recurrence (FCR). It requires cancer survivors to describe the scenario they most fear when they think about the possibility of their cancer returning and to re-read the scenario daily for 1 week as homework. The purpose of this study was to present this novel clinical treatment for FCR and to examine whether at-home repeated exposure to the WCS was related to pre- and post-therapy FCR levels...
