BACKGROUND: The standard of care for treatment of localized muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) is radical cystectomy (RC). The patient's condition may affect management of MIBC, especially for elderly patients with more comorbid conditions and lower performance status. We retrospectively evaluated the association between clinicopathological data and outcomes for patients with bladder cancer (BCa) treated by RC. We particularly focused on elderly patients (age ā‰„75 years) with BCa...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a surgical technique for laparoscopic medial iliac lymph node (MILN) extirpation, and to describe the quality of biopsy specimens obtained. DESIGN: Experimental study. ANIMALS: Purpose-bred male hound-mix research dogs (nā€‰=ā€‰8). METHODS: Dogs were randomized to groups of left or right-sided laparoscopic surgical approaches. Three transperitoneal portals were established with the dogs in lateral recumbency, and ipsilateral MILN dissection was achieved under CO2 pneumoperitoneum using a vessel-sealing device...

BACKGROUND: Almost all patients with advanced gastric cancer will eventually develop progressive disease after first-line chemotherapy. However, the role of subsequent salvage chemotherapy remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate prognostic factors for the survival of patients with advanced gastric cancer who received third-line chemotherapy. METHODS: We reviewed 502 patients with advanced gastric cancer who received palliative chemotherapy at the Onocology Department of Hwasun Chonnam National University Hospital (2004-2008)...

The breaking of a central venous catheter implanted for chemotherapy is a serious complication. Its removal provides a considerable challenge, especially in immunocompromised and thrombocytopenic patients. We present our experience in the percutaneous transcatheter retrieval of the broken parts of catheters in critically ill onocologic and hematologic patients. Our observation indicates that this transcatheter technique is effective and safe, and may prove to be a good alternative to the surgical retrieval of intravascular foreign bodies...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical profile of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) after operation on pelvic tumours and to study how to choose the methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of DVT. METHODS: The clinical characteristics, the methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of 11 cases with DVT and 18 cases with the tendency to DVT were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: Old age, fatness and oringinal pelvic malignant tumours were the high risk factors for postoperative DVT...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship of oral carcinoma to tobacco and alcohol consumption in patients referred over a 10-year period. DESIGN: Analysis of records obtained for the age of presentation, the tobacco and alcohol intake, the site and type of carcinoma. SETTING: All patients with carcinoma of the mouth and associated structures referred to the Joint Onocology/Maxillofacial Clinic at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary by General Medical and Dental Practitioners together with hospitals and hospital departments within South East Scotland...

A short review of 10 years experience with the use of thymus-aplastic nude mice in onocology is given. All major human tumor types, e.g. lung, breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, malignant melanomas are now established and serially grown in nude mice. Rare human tumors with endocrine activity have also been transplanted successfully to nude mice. Transplanted tumors grow locally at the site of inoculation and metastatic spread to lymph nodes and organs is a rare event. The growth rate of the individual tumors remain constant even after several years of serial transfer...

Swiss albino mice were injected on day 16 of pregnancy with 3H diethylstilbestrol. Fetuses were sacrificed 3 h afterwards, frozen, and processed for thaw-mount autoradiography. The serial sections from 4 fetuses were studied. Intense nuclear concentration of radioactivity was found in the mesenchymal cells directly surrounding the epithelial primordia of the mammary glands, but not in the epithelium itself. Localization was similar in male and female fetuses. These findings are discussed in relation to their developmental, teratological, and onocological implications...

Large thyroid carcinomas extending into the anterior mediastinum were removed from six patients by a transsternal surgical approach (partial median sternotomy). Transcervical mediastinal dissection offers obscure exposure and therefore entails the risk of the operation not being radical. The transsternal procedure was used as an alternative to remove affected lymphatic and fatty tissue from an additional nine patients. Sternal metastases were extirpated from 10 patients. Irrespective of the stage of the tumor, the indications for a transsternal approach to onocologically radical extirpation of tumors and mediastinal lymphatic fatty tissue should be more liberal, particularly with differentiated and medullary thyroid carcinomas...

The research examined the attitude of the doctor to the refusal of 70 cancer patients being treated at five onocological institutes in Israel to accept chemotherapy. A connection was found between the doctor's attitude on the one hand and the diagnosis, level of illness and patient's age on the other. In other words, the doctor will not attempt to persuade every patient who refuses chemotherapy to accept the treatment.
