OBJECTIVE: Web-based curricula provide login data that can be advantageously used to characterize and analyze study habits. We sought to compare thoracic surgical trainee In-Training Examination percentiles with regard to their study habits (ie, cramming), as characterized by curriculum login frequency to the national Web-based Thoracic Surgery Curriculum. Furthermore, we then aimed to characterize the curriculum login frequency of trainees as stratified by their performance on the In-Training Examination and their improvement on the In-Training Examination over subsequent years...

A 49-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for an abnormal chest shadow. Computed tomography showed a pulmonary nodular shadow in the right upper lobe and swelling of the right hilar, mediastinal and supraclavicular lymph nodes. A positron emission tomography(PET) scan showed fluorodeoxyglucose accumulation in the tumor and swollen lymph nodes. He was diagnosed with stage cT1aN3M0 (ⅢB) pulmonary adenocarcinoma and was treated with a combination of cisplatin and paclitaxel. After 6 cycles of chemotherapy, serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level was markedly decreased...

The oncogenic hypophosphatemic osteomalacia is a very incapacitating disease and the mortality rate, mainly due to metabolic disorder, depends on the early diagnosis, since the surgery is curative. The major difficulty is to consider this kind of disease in patients with complex clinical presentation. Moreover, medical centers have to provide a good diagnostic infrastructure because these tumors, in most cases, are small and do not have an obvious site. This case report is about a man with a rapid loss of strength and muscle mass, which had his diagnosis in a late, culminating in significant deformities and organic dysfunctions with clinical repercussions...

BACKGROUND: Malignant melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in New Zealand. Surgery is the only treatment modality that can achieve high cure rates for regional disease, but is associated with high complication rates. Our study documents the morbidity associated with regional lymphadenectomy; audits nodal harvest numbers and considers nodal harvest targets. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed regional lymphadenectomies for Stage III melanoma at a single tertiary centre from 2004 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: The progression of cancer from its primary site has been the focus of study of surgeons and oncologists for many decades. Why the primary disease goes on to take the life of some patients while others live out their normal lives after a surgical procedure is only partially understood. METHODS: In a patient with caecal cancer metastatic to the right ovary the clinical, radiologic, surgical and histopathologic findings are presented. Efforts were made to confirm that the disease process was from a single primary site (colon cancer) and not two primary sites (colon cancer and ovarian cancer)...

A 70-year-old man was admitted with complaint of gross hematuria. Cystoscopy and computed tomography (CT) revealed a 2.5 cm nodular tumor in the urinary bladder. Pathological diagnosis after the transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) was invasive urothelial cancer with trophoblastic differentiation of pT1. The tumor was positively stained with human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). The serum HCG level was 12.8 IU/l in the fourth week after TURBT, and it increased to 35.7 IU/l in the 20th week after TURBT...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Unrecognized and inadequately repaired intraoperative durotomies may lead to cerebrospinal fluid leak, pseudomeningocele, and other complications. Few studies have investigated durotomy that is unrecognized intraoperatively and requires additional postoperative management (hereafter, late-presenting dural tear [LPDT]), though estimates of LPDT range from 0.6 - 8.3 per 1,000 spinal surgeries. These single-center studies are based on relatively small sample sizes for an event of this rarity, all with <10 patients experiencing LPDT...

Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) using charged contrast-agents enables quantification of cartilage glycosaminoglycan content. Since glycosaminoglycan content is a key determinant of cartilage compressive stiffness, CECT measurements have the potential to non-invasively assess cartilage stiffness. The objective of this study was to determine whether CECT attenuation, using a cationic contrast-agent (CA4 +), correlates with the stiffness of intact cartilage. Six fresh femoral and six fresh tibial compartments with intact cartilage were obtained from patients undergoing total knee replacement surgery...

Patients undergoing surgical resection of primary breast tumors confront a risk for metastatic recurrence that peaks sharply 12 to 18 months after surgery. The cause of early metastatic relapse in breast cancer has long been debated, with many ascribing these relapses to the natural progression of the disease. Others have proposed that some aspect of surgical tumor resection triggers the outgrowth of otherwise-dormant metastases, leading to the synchronous pattern of relapse. Clinical data cannot distinguish between these hypotheses, and previous experimental approaches have not provided clear answers...

Periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are uncommon but not rare and have significant morbidity and financial implications. Local antibiotics have been used successfully in other areas of orthopedics to reduce postoperative infections, but this method has not been proven in total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Beginning January 1, 2014, our primary investigators began using surgical site lavage with providone-iodine solution and administering 2 g of vancomcyin powder in the surgical wound prior to capsule closure for all primary and revision total hip and knee arthroplasties...

BACKGROUND: Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) are mucocutaneous hypersensitivity reactions, usually to drugs or their metabolites. TEN is the most severe involving greater than 30% of the total body surface area (TBSA). Management of these patients usually benefits from a large multidisciplinary team for both wound and medical management. Treatment of these patients varies between centers and physicians and there is lack of a standardized treatment protocol in the medical literature...

BACKGROUND: Gene fusions involving NTRK1, NTRK2, or NTRK3 (TRK fusions) are found in a broad range of paediatric and adult malignancies. Larotrectinib, a highly selective small-molecule inhibitor of the TRK kinases, had shown activity in preclinical models and in adults with tumours harbouring TRK fusions. This study aimed to assess the safety of larotrectinib in paediatric patients. METHODS: This multicentre, open-label, phase 1/2 study was done at eight sites in the USA and enrolled infants, children, and adolescents aged 1 month to 21 years with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumours or CNS tumours that had relapsed, progressed, or were non-responsive to available therapies regardless of TRK fusion status; had a Karnofsky (≥16 years of age) or Lansky (<16 years of age) performance status score of 50 or more, adequate organ function, and full recovery from the acute toxic effects of all previous anticancer therapy...
