Gliomas are the most frequent primary brain tumors and include a variety of different histological tumor types and malignancy grades. Recent achievements in terms of molecular and imaging fields have created an unprecedented opportunity to perform a comprehensive interdisciplinary assessment of the glioma pathophysiology, with direct implications in terms of the medical and surgical treatment strategies available for patients. The current paradigm shift considers glioma management in a comprehensive perspective that takes into account the intricate connectivity of the cerebral networks...

Liver metastases from breast cancer (LMBC) have long been considered as a systemic disease because of the hematological route of dissemination, requiring noncurative management. In fact, despite recent advances in drug therapies personalized to tumor phenotype, the chances of a cure are nil and there is little hope of long-term survivors after nonsurgical management alone. By contrast, there is a growing evidence in the literature for satisfactory long-term results after a combination of chemotherapy and liver resection, with 5-year survival reaching >40% in some series...

The management of breast cancer during pregnancy poses unique challenges and requires a multi-disciplinary approach. In this review, we discuss the treatment of breast cancer in pregnancy and recent updates regarding the safety of surgical and chemotherapeutic treatments, including both oncologic and fetal outcomes. The treatment of breast cancer during pregnancy mirrors that outside of pregnancy, with a few important differences dictated by the balance of maternal versus fetal health. Overall, surgical treatment, neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, and/or adjuvant chemotherapy are feasible in most women during pregnancy...

As a result of recent progress in detection techniques, circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) and circulating tumor cells (CTC) can now be accurately detected in the blood of most cancer patients. While these new biomarkers can provide a better understanding of key biological mechanisms underlying cancer growth and dissemination, they also open up a wide range of possible clinical applications in medical oncology, radiation oncology and surgical oncology. In this review, we summarize the results obtained with ctDNA and CTC together with their potential future clinical applications in the field of surgical oncology, with particular focus on the perioperative setting of various types of cancer...

Successful management of diffuse low-grade and high-grade gliomas in adults is a challenge for neuro-oncologists. Indeed, due to their highly infiltrative feature, these diseases remain incurable despite therapeutic advances. Nevertheless, the elaboration of individualized therapeutic strategies has led to an improvement of both overall survival and quality of life. In particular, the impact of surgical resection on diffuse glioma survival has been extensively demonstrated. However, this impact is significant only when the resection is total (i...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To describe current evidence about supratracheal laryngectomies, focusing on indications, contraindications, oncologic results, functional outcomes and side-effects of this 'extreme' function-sparing surgical approach to laryngeal cancer. RECENT FINDINGS: In the latest years, some studies have analyzed oncologic and functional results of open partial supratracheal laryngectomy, a surgical approach whose modern technique was recently described...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection in premotor areas can lead to supplementary motor area syndrome as well as a permanent deficit. However, recent findings suggest a putative role of the negative motor network in those dysfunctions. Our objective was to compare the functional results in two groups of adult patients who underwent the resection of a frontal glioma with and without resection of the negative motor networks. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twelve patients (total of 13 surgeries) were selected for awake surgery for a frontal glioma...

The ability to modulate the future liver remnant (FLR) is a key component of modern oncologic hepatobiliary surgery practice and has extended surgical candidacy for patients who may have been previously thought unable to survive liver resection. Multiple techniques have been developed to augment the FLR including portal vein embolization (PVE), associating liver partition and portal vein ligation (ALPPS), and the recently reported transhepatic liver venous deprivation (LVD). PVE is a well-established means to improve the safety of liver resection by redirecting blood flow to the FLR in an effort to selectively hypertrophy and ultimately improve functional reserve of the FLR...

: 57 Background: Recent evidence supports a restrictive transfusion strategy in the majority of hospitalized patients, though transfusion practices for oncology patients remain highly variable. We evaluated whether use of a best practice alert for solid tumor oncology inpatients would result in more restrictive transfusion practices and impact patient outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, historical control analysis at a large academic hospital in Chicago, IL...

Liver metastases are the most common cause of death in colorectal cancer patients. Nowadays, complete resection is considered to be the only curative treatment but only approximately 25% of patients are suitable candidates for surgery; therefore, many different interventional oncology techniques have been developed in recent years for the treatment of secondary liver metastases. The aim of interventional oncological procedures is either to provide a potentially curative treatment option for locally limited metastases with local ablative techniques, to enable nonresectable tumors to become accessible to surgical or local ablative techniques using transarterial procedures or to achieve improved survival in a palliative setting...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has recently been developed to induce rapid liver hypertrophy and reduce post-hepatectomy liver failure in patients with insufficient future liver remnant (FLR). ALPPS is still considered to be in an early developmental phase because surgical indications and techniques have not been standardized. This article aimed to review the current role and future developments of ALPPS. DATA SOURCES: Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE and PubMed for articles from January 2007 to October 2016 using the keywords "associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy" and "ALPPS"...

CONTEXT: Mid gut neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare tumors whose incidence is increasing. Curative surgery remains the gold standard for the treatment of NETs of the small intestine. Surgery should be considered as soon as possible even if a metastatic stage is diagnosed. The management of unresectable well-differentiated metastatic NETs of the small intestine recently changed with the publication of trials demonstrating the benefit of targeted therapies and metabolic radiotherapy, leading to a change of practices and update of French and international recommendations...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this study was to describe the most recent technical nuances for resection and reconstruction of Grade 1 and 2 laryngeal chondrosarcomas, with a special emphasis on those located at the level of the cricoid plate, which is the site of origin of the vast majority of these rare tumours. RECENT FINDINGS: Even though inherently based on retrospective small clinical series or anecdotal case reports, a number of studies have been recently published focusing on conservative transoral and open-neck surgical procedures aimed at an oncologically sound removal of the tumour together with organ and function preservation...
