Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common and the third most lethal cancer in China. An updated version of consensus-based recommendations on the management of HCC has been recently published by a multidisciplinary group of Chinese experts including liver surgeons, hepatic oncologists, radiologists and pathologists. Major changes have been made to the diagnostic criteria. In addition to dynamic multi-detector computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI and contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) are added to the diagnostic imaging tests...

BACKGROUND: Vestibular schwannomas (VS) are uncommon lesions that are a substantial challenge to the neurosurgeons, otologists, and radiation oncologists who undertake their clinical management. A starting point to improving the current knowledge is to define the benchmarks of the current research studying VS management using evidence-based techniques in order to allow meaningful points of departure for future scientific and clinical research. OBJECTIVE: To establish the best evidence-based management of VS, including initial otologic evaluation, imaging diagnosis, use of surgical techniques, assessment of tumor pathology, and the administration of radiation therapy...

Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common cause of death due to gynecologic malignancies. Most patients will be diagnosed at an advanced stage, and despite progress in both surgical procedures and novel targeted therapies, the overall survival of these patients remains very low. Among prognostic factors, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage and residual tumor after debulking surgery are the most widely reported. The current review aims to highlight the disparities in the treatment of patients with ovarian cancer and the need for postgraduate training programs in order to accredit gynecologic oncologists...

BACKGROUND & CONTEXT: Metastatic epidural spinal cord compression (MESCC) is a disabling consequence of disease progression. Surgery can restore/preserve physical function, improving access to treatments that increase duration of survival; however, advanced patient age may deter oncologists and surgeons from considering surgical management. PURPOSE: Evaluate the duration of ambulation and survival in elderly patients following surgical decompression of MESCC. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: Retrospective file review of a prospective database, under IRB waiver of informed consent, of consecutive patients treated in an academic tertiary care medical center from 8/2008-3/2015...

Clinical trials that combine medical therapy and surgical treatment pose a number of challenges. The ANTHALYA trial investigated the efficacy and safety of adding bevacizumab to neoadjuvant carboplatin-paclitaxel chemotherapy prior to interval debulking surgery (IDS) in patients with ovarian cancer. The success of the trial depended on the efficacy and the safety of the combination and on the surgical effort. Furthermore, at the time of study design, neoadjuvant bevacizumab had not been investigated in ovarian cancer patients and it was unknown if neoadjuvant angiogenic therapy would be well tolerated or would negatively impact the success of IDS...

We report a case of concomitant EML4-ALK and TPM3-ROS1 fusion in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in a 47-year-old Chinese man and review the clinical characteristics of this type double of fusion. The patient presented with a local tumor of the left upper lobe and underwent thoracoscopy. Postoperative surgical pathologic staging revealed T1a N0 M0 stage IA. Histological examination of the tumor showed lung adenocarcinoma. Ventana ALK (D5F3) assay of the left lung tissue was ALK negative; however, immunohistochemical assay was positive for ROS1 protein...

Painless jaundice is a harbinger of malignant biliary obstruction, with the majority of cases due to pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Despite advances in treatment, including improved surgical techniques and neoadjuvant (preoperative) chemotherapy, long-term survival from pancreatic cancer is rare. This lack of significant improvement in outcomes is believed to be due to multiple reasons, including the advanced stage at diagnosis and lack of an adequate biomarker for screening and early detection, prior to the onset of jaundice or epigastric pain...

The advent of immunotherapy has changed our concept of how to manage metastatic disease. With the exception of relatively rare tumors, the treatment of metastatic cancer is still considered as palliative, and in systemic treatment immunotherapy is often selected, considering better tolerance. Immunotherapy opens the perspective of a long-term, possibly durable, response, and, in contrast to other approaches to targeted therapy, is active across a spectrum of tumors. Combined regimens that increase the efficacy, given the context, are thus of importance...

Study Design: Reliability analysis. Objectives: The Spinal Instability Neoplastic Score (SINS) was developed for assessing patients with spinal neoplasia. It identifies patients who may benefit from surgical consultation or intervention. It also acts as a prognostic tool for surgical decision making. Reliability of SINS has been established for spine surgeons, radiologists, and radiation oncologists, but not yet among spine surgery trainees. The purpose of our study is to determine the reliability of SINS among spine residents and fellows, and its role as an educational tool...

BACKGROUND: The management of rectal cancer has evolved over the years, including the recent rise of Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (TaTME). TaTME addresses the limitations created by the bony confines of the pelvis, bulky tumours, and fatty mesorectum, particularly for low rectal cancers. However, guidance is required to ensure safe implementation and to avoid the pitfalls and potential major morbidity encountered by the early adopters of TaTME. We report a broad international consensus statement, which provides a basis for optimal clinical practice...

Surgery is the cornerstone of treatment of ovarian cancer. Given the importance of achieving no or minimal macroscopic residual disease at primary surgery, performing an assessment of the quality of ovarian cancer surgery is crucial. Assessing the quality of care and surgical outcome allows us to establish baseline information, set standards of care and clear priorities, enable benchmarking against peers, and sustain quality improvement. We know that suboptimal care exists and variation in outcomes results...

Sarcomas represent a highly heterogeneous group of tumors as reflected in the significant overlap between their histologic phenotypes between the different types, posing diagnostic challenges for the pathologist. Definitive tumor classification is increasingly important because of prognostication and emergence of targeted therapies for some of the sarcoma types. In this review, we highlight pertinent pathologic and molecular aspects of sarcomas common in the retroperitoneum, relevant to the surgical oncologist...

BACKGROUND: Delineation of lumpectomy cavity for whole breast radiation therapy after breast conserving surgery can be challenging because of poor visualization of the cavity. The use of surgical clips on lumpectomy cavity walls has been suggested as an effective and low-cost method to improve the accuracy and consistency of lumpectomy cavity delineation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-three eligible female breast cancer patients who were treated with lumpectomy and adjuvant radiation therapy were recruited for this study...

BACKGROUND: Risk-reducing bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (RRBSO) increases survival in patients at high risk of developing ovarian cancer. While many general gynecologists perform this procedure, some argue it should be performed exclusively by specialists. In this retrospective observational study, we identified how often optimal techniques were used and whether surgeons' training impacted implementation. METHODS: We used the ACOG guidelines highlighting various aspects of the procedure to determine which elements were consistent with best practices to maximize surgical prophylaxis...
