PURPOSE: (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) has been investigated as a method to predict pancreatic cancer recurrence after pancreatic surgery. We evaluated the recently introduced heterogeneity indices of (18)F-FDG PET/CT used for predicting pancreatic cancer recurrence after surgery and compared them with current clinicopathologic and (18)F-FDG PET/CT parameters. METHODS: A total of 93 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients (M:F = 60:33, mean age = 64...

BACKGROUND: Although surgical resection is the only curative treatment for gallbladder cancer (GBC), concomitant peritoneal dissemination is considered far beyond the scope of resection. We report a long-term survivor with a residual GBC with multiple peritoneal disseminations who underwent an extended resection after effective chemotherapy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 59-year-old male underwent an open cholecystectomy for Mirizzi syndrome at a local hospital. Because of severe inflammation, the gallbladder was perforated during surgery, ending in a piecemeal resection...

Purpose: Various inflammation-based prognostic biomarkers such as the platelet to lymphocyte ratio and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), are related to poor survival in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). This study aims to investigate the prognostic value of the aspartate aminotransferase to neutrophil ratio index (ANRI) in ICC after hepatic resection. Materials and Methods: Data of 184 patients with ICC after hepatectomy were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether elevated levels of CA125 (≥35 U/mL) and CA19-9 (≥37 U/mL) suggest advanced-stage disease (defined as stage II or higher) or poor prognosis in patients with borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs). STUDY DESIGN: We retrospectively identified 591 patients with BOTs. Multivariate logistic regressions and Cox proportional hazard regressions were used to determine the clinicopathologic factors associated with the presence of advanced-stage disease and the prognostic factors associated with recurrence-free survival...

Partial hepatectomy is a potentially curative therapy for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Unfortunately, the overall surgical prognosis remains dismal and the actual 10-year survival has not been reported. This study aimed to document 10-year actual survival rates, identify the prognostic factors associated with 10-year survival rate, and analyze the characteristics of patients who survived ≥ 10 years. Among 251 patients who underwent curative liver resection for ICC between 2003 and 2006 at the Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital, 21 patients (8...

BACKGROUND: Pleural effusions present a diagnostic challenge. Approximately 20% are associated with cancer and some 50% require invasive procedures to perform diagnosis. Determination of tumour markers may help to identify patients with malignant effusions. Two strategies are used to obtain high specificity in the differential diagnosis of malignant pleural effusions: a) high cut-off, and b) fluid/serum (F/S) ratio and low cut-off. The aim of this study is to compare these two strategies and to establish whether the identification of possible false positives using benign biomarkers - ADA, CRP and % of polymorphonuclear cells - improves diagnostic accuracy...

An ultrasensitive electrochemiluminescence (ECL) immunosensor for carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) detection using multi-walled carbon nanotube-platinum-luminol nanocomposites (MWCNT-Pt-luminol) as nanointerface and signal tags was designed. First, the MWCNT-Pt-luminol nanocomposite was decorated on the surface of a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) through the film-forming properties of chitosan (Chi). Then, the CA19-9 antibody (anti-CA19-9) was attached to the modified electrode surface via crosslinking with glutaraldehyde (GA)...

Accessory spleens (ASs), ectopic splenic tissue at intrapancreatic and extrapancreatic sites, rarely contain epidermoid cysts. Our aim was to analyze the incidence of epidermoid cysts in ASs and perform an immunohistochemical analysis of its epithelial lining. We included in the study 148 ASs from 135 patients, for which pathological data were available. Eleven were intrapancreatic ASs (IPASs) and 137 were extrapancreatic ASs (EPASs). Six of the eleven (55%) IPASs contained epidermoid cysts, but they were not detected in EPASs...

To determine the risk factors for peritoneal recurrence in gastric cancer patients after curative resection, we included 320 patients with stage I-III primary gastric cancer between January 2008 and June 2012. Data on each patient's surgical and pathological information, preoperative and postoperative tumor markers were collected and analyzed retrospectively. The risk factors for peritoneal recurrence were investigated by univariate and multivariate analysis. In patients with peritoneal recurrence, advanced T or N stage, low differentiation, vascular/lymphatic invasion, perineural invasion, and elevated postoperative CEA/CA19-9 were more common than in patients without peritoneal recurrence...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Most systems for staging perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) have been developed for the minority of patients with resectable disease. The recently developed Mayo Clinic system for staging PHC requires only clinical and radiological variables, but has not yet been validated. We performed a retrospective study to validate the Mayo Clinic staging system. METHODS: We identified consecutive patients with suspected PHC evaluated and treated at 2 tertiary centers in The Netherlands, from January 2002 through December 2014...

Elevated carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) beyond 1000 U/L occurs in nonneoplastic conditions which is causing questioning of the use of CA19-9 as a marker for screening. We report a case where a 51-year-old male with Mirrizi Syndrome (MS) presented with markedly increased CA19-9 level (4,618 U/mL). MS is a rare complication characterized by compression of the common bile or hepatic duct caused by an impacted gallstone in the cystic duct or neck of the gallbladder. Biliary epithelial cells secrete CA19-9: it is hypothesized that increased proliferation of such cells caused by inflammation leads to increased secretion...

We try to explore the value of aberrant DNA methylation of several cancer-related genes in plasma as non-invasive biomarkers for gastric cancer (GC) and precancerous lesions. By using methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction assay we determined the methylation status of three selected genes ZIC1, HOXD10 and RUNX3 in blood samples from patients with GC and precancerous lesions. We discovered that the methylation rate of ZIC1, HOXD10 and RUNX3 increased significantly in the progression of gastric carcinogenesis...

Autoamputated ovary with mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is a rarely reported gynecologic entity with an unknown prevalence. A 34-year-old woman referred to our clinic for presumed left ovarian tumor. Pelvic examination, ultrasonography and computed tomography scan revealed a 5-cm, cystic ovarian mass with calcification and fat component, and tumor markers were as follows, cancer antigen (CA) 125; 10.4 U/mL, CA19-9; 2 U/mL. Laparoscopy was performed. The mass was identified in the left adnexal region without any ligamentous or direct connection with the pelvic organs...

BACKGROUND: Recent papers consider surgery as an option for synchronous liver oligometastatic patients [metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (mPDAC)]. In this study, we present our series of resected mPDACs after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (nCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients resected after downstaging of mPDAC were included in this study. Downstaging criteria were disappearance of liver metastasis and a decrease in cancer antigen (CA) 19-9. The type and duration of nCT, last nCT surgery interval, histology, morbidity, and mortality were recorded, and overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) were analyzed...

Carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) is a tumour marker found to be elevated in some ovarian tumours. We share our experience with a 55-year-old postmenopausal lady with unusually high CA19-9 levels arising from a benign mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary. The levels returned to normal eight weeks following staging laparotomy and a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy. This report shows rare and significant elevation of CA 19-9 levels with benign mucinous cystadenomas of the ovary thus showing that women with unusually elevated tumour markers may actually harbour benign disease...

PURPOSE: Only a few studies have evaluated the clinicopathological significance of the p53 protein expression and s-p53-Abs level in patients with cholangiocarcinoma. We therefore analyzed the clinicopathological and prognostic significance of s-p53-Abs in patients with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. METHODS: We prospectively evaluated s-p53-Abs levels before and after surgery in 61 patients with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma to determine the relationship between clinicopathological factors and the prognostic significance of s-p53-Abs...
