Bone is a common site for malignant involvement, either as a site of metastasis, especially in breast or prostate cancer, or as a defining characteristic of the disease, as in multiple myeloma. Bone disease is a major source of morbidity, and half of patients with bone involvement develop skeletal-related events such as pathological fractures or cord compression requiring surgery and/or radiation. Skeletal involvement also increases mortality, as pathologic fractures increase the risk of dying by 20-40%. Osteoclast inhibition with bisphosphonates such as zoledronic acid and recently denosumab has been a significant improvement for bone disease...

Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer worldwide for females and the most lethal of all gynecological malignancies. The treatment of ovarian cancer remains a challenge in spite of advances in debulking surgery and changes in both chemotherapy schedules and routes of administration. Cancer treatment has recently been improving with the introduction of targeted therapies to achieve greater specificity and less cytotoxicity. Both PARP inhibitors and MDM2-p53 binding antagonists are targeted therapeutic agents entered into clinical trials...

The most common subtype of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is clear cell RCC (ccRCC). It accounts for 70-80% of all renal malignancies representing the third most common urological cancer after prostate and bladder cancer. The identification of non-invasive biomarkers for the diagnosis and responsiveness to therapy of ccRCC may represent a relevant step-forward in ccRCC management. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether specific miRNAs deregulated in ccRCC tissues present altered levels also in urine specimens...

Indocyanine green fluorescent image-guided surgery was developed to identify primary and metastatic nodules of various malignancies. However, currently, surgeons need to identify the fluorescent image on a monitor, which impedes surgical procedures. Herein, we developed a novel projection mapping device that can cast the real-time fluorescent image onto the surface of the targeted organ. We performed surgical resection of a lung metastasis of hepatoblastoma using this technique. The projection mapping technique clearly detected the pulmonary lesion, and no other lesions were identified in the ipsilateral thorax...

OBJECTIVES: The median age at diagnosis of patients with pleural mesothelioma in the UK is 73 years. Recent series have shown the feasibility of extended pleurectomy decortication in the elderly, but with continuing debate about the efficacy of this treatment, we reviewed our experience to identify more detailed selection criteria. METHODS: We reviewed prospectively collected data on all patients from 1999 to 2016 undergoing extended pleurectomy decortication...

OBJECTIVES: Little is known about the relationship between preoperative physical fitness and postoperative pneumonia after lung resection. We examined the association between preoperative 6-min walk distance (6MWD) and postoperative pneumonia. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on patients with malignant lung tumours who were scheduled to undergo lung resection at Nagoya University Hospital from January 2014 to December 2015. Preoperative pulmonary function tests and the 6-min walk test were assessed...

Importance: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, is the number 1 cause of preventable death in surgical patients. Current guidelines from the American College of Chest Physicians provide VTE prevention recommendations that are specific to individual surgical subspecialties; however, no guidelines exist for otolaryngology. Objective: To examine the rate of VTE for various otolaryngology procedures compared with an established average-risk field (general surgery) and low-risk field (plastic surgery)...

RATIONALE: Myeloid sarcomas (MSs) are rare malignant hematological tumors. They most commonly occur in patients with acute or chronic myeloid leukemia. A de novo MS with no evidence of blood system disease is rare, but may represent the first sign of a systemic illness that precedes a full-blown disease. Herein, we report the computed tomography (CT) findings of an extremely rare case of a nonleukemic MS that progressed to acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and simultaneously involved the small intestine, kidneys, mesentery, and mesenteric lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac angiosarcoma is rare, but it is the most aggressive type of cardiac malignant tumor. When disease is confirmed it is often late in its stage resulting in a poor prognosis. CASE PRESENTATION: We reported a 52-year-old woman who complained of dyspnea for 2 months and dry cough for 10 days. Computed tomography (CT), F-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG), positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT), and transthoracic echocardiography showed a space-occupying lesion 7 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm in the right atrium...

BACKGROUND: Opioids are frequently used in chronic pain management but are associated with significant morbidity and mortality in some patient populations. An important avenue for identifying complications-including serious or rare complications-is the study of closed malpractice claims. The present study is intended to complement the existing closed claims literature by drawing on claims from a more recent timeframe through a partnership with a large malpractice carrier, the Controlled Risk Insurance Company (CRICO)...

Malignant transformation of giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB) without radiotherapy exposure is exceptionally rare, occurring in less than 1% of GCTBs. The safety and efficacy of denosumab in patients with GCTB was recently reported. We herein report a case of a benign recurrent GCTB with an H3F3A mutation that underwent secondary malignant transformation during treatment with denosumab. A 29-year-old woman underwent curettage of a GCTB of the left ischium in 2005. Ten years after the first surgery, the GCTB recurred locally...

A multimodal micro-computed tomography (CT) and multi-spectral structured light imaging (SLI) system is introduced and systematically analyzed to test its feasibility to aid in margin delineation during breast conserving surgery (BCS). Phantom analysis of the micro-CT yielded a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 34, a contrast of 1.64, and a minimum detectable resolution of 240 m for a 1.2 min scan. The SLI system, spanning wavelengths 490 nm to 800 nm and spatial frequencies up to 1.37 mm-1, was evaluated with aqueous tissue simulating phantoms having variations in particle size distribution, scatter density, and blood volume fraction...

Congenital pulmonary airway malformations or CPAM are rare developmental lung malformations, leading to cystic and/or adenomatous pulmonary areas. Nowadays, CPAM are diagnosed prenatally, improving the prenatal and immediate postnatal care and ultimately the knowledge on CPAM pathophysiology. CPAM natural evolution can lead to infections or malignancies, whose exact prevalence is still difficult to assess. The aim of this "state-of-the-art" review is to cover the recently published literature on CPAM management whether the pulmonary lesion was detected during pregnancy or after birth, the current indications of surgery or surveillance and finally its potential evolution to pleuro-pulmonary blastoma...

The median life expectancy of population among industrialized countries has dramatically expanded in recent years. On the other hand, the risk of developing cancer increases with age.The treatment for gynaecological malignancies is well defined with respect to the surgery, radiation treatment and chemotherapy. However, elderly patients receives substandard treatment when compared to the younger people, generally due to the presence of associated medical conditions. The assessment of the co-morbidity is an important aspect of the surgical decision-making process...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a highly lethal malignant tumor. Currently, Human papillomavirus (HPV) is suggested as a potential risk factor for esophageal cancer (EC) in addition to the classic risk factors, alcohol and tobacco, but this hypothesis still remains contradictory. We sought to investigate wether HPV and well-known biomarkers (p16 and p53) and patient-related factors that may have impact on survival of ESCC. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study...
