The appropriate therapy for metastatic breast cancer must be selected based on the immunohistochemical phenotype of the cancer. However, biopsy for metastatic lesions is difficult. We herein report a patient with incidental appendicitis caused by a metastatic breast cancer which was successfully treated with effective therapy chosen based on the pathological diagnosis obtained on resection. The patient was a 56-year-old female with right breast cancer and an immunohistochemical status of estrogen receptor (ER) (+), progesterone receptor (PgR) (+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) (3+), and Ki67 40 %...

BACKGROUND: Today, access to technology through robotic surgery has allowed urologists to have a valuable tool in order to perform various robot - assisted laparoscopic procedures. Robotic surgery allows reproducing complex techniques such as retroperitoneal or extended pelvic lymphadenectomy. The aim of the study was to report our series of robot assisted retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy and to demonstrate its technical and oncological feasibility. METHODS: A retrospective analysis on 7 patients (four cases of testicular tumors, one prostate adenocarcinoma, and two bladder urothelial carcinomas), who underwent retroperitoneal para-aortic, interaorto-cava and extended pelvic lymphadenectomy by robot assisted laparoscopic surgery, was conducted...

Sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping has increased its feasibility in both early stage cervical and endometrial cancer. There are few SLN studies regarding the ovary, because of the risk of tumor dissemination and perhaps because the ovary represents an inconvenient site for injection. In this preliminary study, we have shown the feasibility of SLN mapping of the ovary with Indocyanine green (ICG) during laparoscopic retroperitoneal aortic surgical staging. The ten women who were included in this study underwent aortic with pelvic laparoscopic staging, which included SLN biopsy, extrafascial total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy in case of ovarian tumor...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy is considered the method of choice in the operative treatment of type I endometrial carcinoma (EC). However, there is a paucity of data regarding the safety of endoscopy for type II EC because these malignancies have several biological similarities with ovarian cancer. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, operative outcomes, and oncologic safety of laparoscopic surgery in patients with type II EC. METHODS: A retrospective study with histologically confirmed serous or clear-cell EC without peritoneal carcinomatosis treated by laparoscopy (G1) or laparotomy (G2) was conducted...

Endometrial serous carcinomas are very clinically aggressive, which constitutes 40% of all deaths and recurrences associated with endometrial cancer. Small-cell carcinoma of the endometrium is relatively rare but aggressive, and often presents a component of endometrioid carcinoma, and is not generally associated with serous carcinoma. Herein, we report a case of 74-year-old African-American female, who presented with intermittent post-menopausal bleeding for > 1-month. She underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, sentinel lymph node mapping, and pelvic-and-aortic lymphadenectomy...

Surgical management of gastric cancer improves survival. However, for some time, surgeons have had diverse opinions about the extent of gastrectomy. Researchers have conducted many clinical studies, making slow but steady progress in determining the optimal surgical approach. The extent of lymph node dissection has been one of the major issues in surgery for gastric cancer. Many trials demonstrated that D2 dissection resulted in greater morbidity and mortality than D1 dissection. However, long-term outcomes demonstrated that D2 dissection resulted in longer survival than D1 dissection...

BACKGROUND: In sigmoid cancer, both inferior mesenteric artery high or low ligations are accepted for curative purposes. Since inferior mesenteric artery ligation could compromise blood flow to the anastomosis, potentially increasing anastomotic leakage onset, real oncological benefits and possible disadvantages related to vascular transection level are still on debate. We introduce totally laparoscopic inferior mesenteric artery peeling technique to release from the concept of lymph nodal harvesting linked to arterial transection level...

PURPOSE: The adoption of a sentinel lymph node (SLN) algorithm and the presence of high bilateral detection rates have been associated with increased accuracy of SLN mapping in cervical and endometrial cancer patients. In this context, the significance of the number of SLNs removed has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to evaluate (a) whether or not a higher SLN removal count is associated with a reduced false-negative rate and (b) which clinical factors correlate with the number of SLNs removed...

BACKGROUND: Total laparoscopic right colectomy (TLRC) is a demanding procedure requiring laparoscopic skills and expertise in surgical oncology. Identifying the correct plane of dissection may be difficult. A correct management of ileocecal and right colic vascular pedicles is pivotal to achieve an oncological resection and the adequate blood supply of ileal and colic stumps. METHODS: We describe a technique for TLRC with a duodenum-first approach. Using three ports, dividing the "duodenal window", ileocecal and right colic vascular pedicles, and the right ureter are easily identified...

The third version of the Japan Society of Gynecologic Oncology guidelines for the treatment of uterine body neoplasms was published in 2013. The guidelines comprise nine chapters and nine algorithms. Each chapter includes a clinical question, recommendations, background, objectives, explanations, and references. This revision was intended to collect up-to-date international evidence. The highlights of this revision are to (1) newly specify costs and conflicts of interest; (2) describe the clinical significance of pelvic lymph node dissection and para-aortic lymphadenectomy, including variant histologic types; (3) describe more clearly the indications for laparoscopic surgery as the standard treatment; (4) provide guidelines for post-treatment hormone replacement therapy; (5) clearly differentiate treatment of advanced or recurrent cancer between the initial treatment and the treatment carried out after the primary operation; (6) collectively describe fertility-sparing therapy for both atypical endometrial hyperplasia and endometrioid adenocarcinoma (corresponding to G1) and newly describe relapse therapy after fertility-preserving treatment; and (7) newly describe the treatment of trophoblastic disease...
