Partially cystic thyroid nodules (PCTNs) are common on ultrasound (US). However, there are insufficient data on the prevalence of thyroid carcinoma among such nodules. The purpose of this study was thus to evaluate the prevalence and differentiation of partially cystic thyroid cancers in US-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA).A total of 1342 consecutive patients with 1360 thyroid nodules underwent prospective US diagnosis and FNA biopsy. In total, 281 nodules (20.7%) were partially cystic lesions. The nodules were prospectively analyzed based on US features (ie, solid portion positions, shapes, margins, and microcalcifications) and US diagnosis (benign, suspicious, or malignant)...

OBJECTIVE: Clinical stage (cStage) in thyroid cancer determines extent of surgical therapy and completeness of resection. Pathologic stage (pStage) is an important determinant of outcome. The rate of discordance between clinical and pathologic stage in thyroid cancer is unknown. METHODS: The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) was queried to identify 27,473 patients ≥45 years old with cStage I through IV differentiated thyroid cancer undergoing surgery from 2008-2012...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine whether the pull-through resection is better than the mandibular lip-split for advanced tongue/floor of mouth (FOM) cancers, which remains inconclusive. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed on 91 patients with T4a tongue/FOM cancers from 2009 to 2014. Cases with mandibular resection were excluded. The pull-through resection was used when the mouth opening was ≥15 mm; otherwise the mandibular lip-split was used...

Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord is a very rare neoplasm with fewer than 200 cases recorded in world literature. This report describes a case of liposarcoma of the spermatic cord which developed after radical prostatectomy and salvage radiotherapy for prostate cancer treatment. Four years following surgical treatment of the primary neoplasm and one year following radiotherapy, the 67 –year –old patient was referred to the urology clinic for the emergence of a mass in the right hemiscrotum region. Ultrasonography revealed a homogenous isodense mass measuring 4...

Ampullary carcinoma or cancer of the ampulla of Vater is a rare malignancy with a high recurrence rate. Although cost-effective biomarkers, such as neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), have been investigated in other cancers for predicting postoperative prognosis in patients, studies on the role of NLR in ampullary cancer are scarce. Here we aimed to evaluate the prognostic significance of the preoperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with operable ampullary carcinoma. We retrospectively reviewed 87 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for the treatment of ampullary carcinoma between December 1999 and April 2014...

Up to 40% of patients undergoing breast conserving surgery for breast cancer require repeat surgeries due to close to or positive margins. The lengthy processing required for evaluating surgical margins by standard paraffin-embedded histology precludes its use during surgery and therefore, technologies for rapid evaluation of surgical pathology could improve the treatment of breast cancer by reducing the number of surgeries required. We demonstrate real-time histological evaluation of breast cancer surgical specimens by staining specimens with acridine orange (AO) and sulforhodamine 101 (SR101) analogously to hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) and then imaging the specimens with fluorescence nonlinear microscopy (NLM) using a compact femtosecond fiber laser...

OBJECTIVE: Many of the surgical patients with lung cancer die by metastasis originated from circulating tumor cells (CTCs) which are seeds of metastases. A ring-shaped catching forceps, which generates the great pressure by compression, may reduce the risk of tumor cell spreading. Here, we investigated the efficacy of such forceps based on CTC occurrence. METHODS: Twenty-three patients with clinical stage IA lung cancer who underwent a pulmonary wedge resection were investigated in a clinical-pathological manner...

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the USA. Mohs micrographic surgery is a microscopically controlled surgical technique that excises lateral and deep surgical margins while also sparing function and achieving a good cosmetic outcome. Given the increasing incidence in skin cancer worldwide and its associated treatment costs, techniques are being developed to improve the time and cost efficacy of this procedure. The use of noninvasive imaging, both in vivo and ex vivo, has the potential to increase efficiency of diagnosis and surgical management of skin cancers...

To improve outcomes for patients with cancer, in terms of both survival and a reduction in the morbidity and mortality that results from surgical resection and treatment, there are two main areas that require improvement. Accurate early diagnosis of the cancer, at a stage where curative and, ideally, minimally invasive treatment is achievable, is desired as well as identification of tumor margins, lymphatic and distant disease, enabling complete, but not unnecessarily extensive, resection. Optical imaging is making progress in achieving these aims...

INTRODUCTION: Phyllodes tumors (PTs) of the breast are extremely rare accounting for less than 1% of all breast tumors globally. Case records at the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Registry show that only 0.003% of the reported breast cancer cases between 1995 and 2009 were PTs. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE: We report a 45-year-old woman who presented with swelling of the left breast. Ultrasound, mammogram and computed tomography imaging confirmed the presence of a mass in the right upper inner quadrant of the left breast...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Bladder neck preservation (BNP) during radical prostatectomy (RP) has been proposed as a method to improve early recovery of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy. However, there is concern over a possible increase in the risk of positive surgical margins and prostate cancer recurrence rate. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis reported improved early recovery and overall long-term urinary continence without compromising oncologic control. The aim of our study was to perform a critical review of the literature to assess the impact on bladder neck and base margins after bladder neck sparing radical prostatectomy...

BACKGROUND: Vulvar cancer is a rare disease accounting for approximately 5% of female genital tract tumors worldwide. Currently surgery represents the mainstay alone or sometimes, in combination with chemo-radiotherapy, for locally advanced tumors and recurrent disease. However, significant physical and sexual impairment mostly due to anatomical distortion of external genitalia are a consequence of radical surgical treatment. Postoperative reconstruction after demolitive surgeries improves aesthetic and functional results, guarantees an adequate coverage of large tumors and assures safe surgical margin...
