BACKGROUND:  Cold snare polypectomy (CSP) to remove multiple duodenal adenomas (MDAs) in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) could be an effective and less invasive method than more extensive surgery. The aim of the present study was to determine the safety of this procedure. METHODS:  This prospective exploratory study included 10 consecutive patients with FAP and MDAs who underwent CSP for as many as 50 duodenal adenomas. The primary outcome was the incidence of severe adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Modern advances in genetic sequencing techniques have allowed for increased availability of genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes. Consequently, more people are being identified as mutation carriers and becoming aware of their increased risk of malignancy. Testing is commonplace for many inheritable cancer syndromes, and with that comes the knowledge of being a gene carrier for some patients. With increased risk of malignancy, many guidelines recommend that gene carriers partake in risk reduction strategies, including risk-reducing surgery for some syndromes...

We would like to draw to the attention of head and neck surgeons the following disease that can present first to head and neck specialists with either a head and neck lump or following an incidental finding on radiological imaging. Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) is a hereditary disease caused by a mutation in the APC gene on chromosome 5, which is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion with complete penetrance but variable expression(1). However in approximately 25% of cases it arises from a de novo mutation of the APC gene(1)...

INTRODUCTION: Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) is a hereditary condition characterized by multiple colorectal adenomatous polyps. FAP is the most common adenomatous polyposis syndrome. Restorative proctocolectomy is the most commonly performed surgical procedure performed for patients suffering from FAP with different options for anastomosis, namely ileorectal anastomosis (IRA) or ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA). The occurrence of adenomas is a common finding during follow up and surveillance post surgery for these patients...

The aim is to study the characteristics of cribriform morular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (CMV-PTC) in patients living in radiation-affected area of Belarus. The clinical and pathological features of 35 patients with CMV-PTC from Belarus were studied and compared with those of conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma diagnosed in the same period. The patients with CMV-PTC were all females and were younger at presentation (mean age = 24) than those with conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma. Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) was identified in 20% of the patients with CMV-PTC...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Pancreas cancer (PC) is a deadly disease, which is most commonly diagnosed at an incurable stage. Different high-risk genetic variants and cancer syndromes increase the lifetime risk of developing PC. This study aims to assess the yield of initial PC screening in patients with high-risk germline mutations. METHODS: Asymptomatic adults underwent PC screening by EUS, MRI or CT during a 10-year period, and were retrospectively identified. High-risk individuals were defined as carrying germline mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2, p53 (Li-Fraumeni), STK11 (Peutz-Jeghers), MSH2 (Lynch), ATM (ataxia-telangiectasia), or APC (familial adenomatous polyposis)...

BACKGROUND: Intra-abdominal fibromatosis often involves the mesentery root which is non-resectable by conventional surgery. Multivisceral transplant (MVT), as a potential cure to non-resectable fibromatosis, has rarely been reported and the prognosis is unknown. METHODS: Six patients who underwent MVT for intra-abdominal fibromatosis were reviewed. Clinicopathological features, immunohistochemistry for β-catenin, p53, and Ki67, and outcomes were evaluated. Appropriate data for comparative analysis were obtained from a cohort of 24 patients who underwent conventional resection for intra-abdominal fibromatosis...

The worldwide incidence of thyroid malignancies has been increasing rapidly. Sensitive imaging modalities and early detection of thyroid lesions have made thyroid cancers the most rapidly increasing cancers in the USA in 2017 (SEER Cancer Facts, 2017). Clinical awareness of potential risk factors, such as inherited thyroid cancers, has allowed earlier recognition of more vulnerable population clusters. Hereditary thyroid neoplasms arising from calcitonin-producing C cells are known as familial medullary thyroid carcinomas (FMTCs), and include well-documented syndromes such as multiple endocrine neoplasia IIA or IIB, and pure familial medullary thyroid carcinoma syndrome...

MicroRNAs are dysregulated in various cancers including colorectal cancer, and are potential useful biomarkers of disease development. We used next generation sequencing to investigate miRNA expression profiles in low- and high-grade intraepithelial dysplastic polyps from pigs carrying a mutation in the adenomatous polyposis coli tumour suppressor (APC1311 , orthologous to human APC1309 ) that model an inherited predisposition to colorectal cancer, familial adenomatous polyposis. We identified several miRNAs and their isomiRs significantly (P < 0...

Background: The coexistence of familial adenomatous polyposis and spondyloarthritis is rarely defined in literature. The primary aim of this presentation is to report a development of peripheral arthritis in 3 years following colon surgery with the diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The secondary aim is to discuss the challenge of in treatment of refractory arthritis, which needs to be treated with biologics. However, it is not yet known well about their safety on patients who have risks for cancer development...

BACKGROUND: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a rare, autosomal dominant disease clinically characterized by the early onset of many adenomatous polyps throughout the colon, which turn into colon cancer, if left untreated. In FAP patients, polyps can also occur in the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract, especially in the duodenum. Adenomas beyond duodenum are rare and mostly located in the proximal jejunum and distal ileum. The management of such polyps can be either surgical or endoscopic, depending on the features of the polyp, Spigelman stage and patient's clinical conditions...

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a genetic disorder characterized by the development of hundreds of polyps throughout the colon. Without prophylactic colectomy, most individuals with FAP develop colorectal cancer at an early age. Treatment with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the free fatty acid form (EPA-FFA) has been shown to reduce polyp burden in FAP patients. Since high-purity EPA-FFA is subject to rapid oxidation, a stable form of EPA compound has been developed in the form of magnesium l-lysinate bis-eicosapentaenoate (TP-252)...

The management of duodenal and colorectal tumours is important in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Endoscopic resection (ER) should be carefully performed because the risk of complications during or after (ER) of nonampullary duodenal tumours is higher than that of stomach or colorectal lesions in general. Thus, we evaluated the feasibility of endoscopic resection using bipolar snare (ERB) for nonampullary duodenal tumours in FAP patients. Eleven FAP patients who underwent ERB for nonampullary duodenal tumours at our hospital between October 2013 and December 2016 were retrospectively analysed based on clinicopathological features...

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is one of the most common hereditary colorectal cancers. Its intestinal and extra-intestinal manifestations are correlated with mutation sties of the APC gene. Potential gene modulation sites in patients who have typical clinical manifestations but with unidentified APC mutations are also discussed, which included MUTYH gene, AXIN gene and certain epigenetic changes. With the generalization of Precision Medicine, to offer individualized treatment and surveillance strategy based on the genotype-phenotype correlation will be of great value for FAP patients...

Gastric cancer and colorectal cancer are two common malignant tumors in digestive tract. 1% to 3% of gastric cancer and 5% to 15% of colorectal cancer are definitely hereditary cancer caused by germline gene mutation. Hereditary gastric cancer includes hereditary diffuse gastric cancer(HDGC) and hereditary intestinal gastric cancer (HIGC). CDH1 gene mutation is the main reason to cause HDGC, so the first degree and the second degree family members of HDGC patients are recommended to receive CDH1 mutation detection, endoscopic examination every year and undergo preventive total gastrectomy...
