Synchronous cancers are not such rare clinical conditions. Nevertheless, even after the 8th edition of the TNM classification of the lung cancer, the surgical approach for patients presenting with synchronous bilateral lung cancer is still under debate. The resection of both lesions in the case of synchronous bilateral lung cancer is reasonable, but, on the other hand, is the lobectomy the correct choice in the event of the single primary with a contralateral metastatic lesion? In this case report, we describe how the molecular analysis and the detection of the EGFR, KRAS and TP53 mutations in both tumours have determined in a patient the two tumours as primary and both the right surgical approach...

Although intrabiliary metastasis of carcinoma in the liver is unusual, intraductal and/or intraepithelial spread of cancer cells along intrahepatic bile ducts is now well recognized as hepatic metastasis. However, several clinical and laboratory findings, including images, lead us to differentially diagnose from primary intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. We report here on a case of colonic adenocarcinoma that metastasized to the liver with spread along with the intrahepatic bile duct of S5/6 area. The patient was a 51-year-old man and clinically diagnosed liver metastasis of sigmoid colon cancer (tub2, pMP, ly1, v0, n0), which was diagnosed and treated by sigmoidectomy 7 years ago...

BACKGROUND: The reclassification of noninvasive encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid cancer to noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features will reduce nonefficacious and potentially harmful care. Reclassification is estimated in 18.6% of patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma; we aimed to quantify the implications of this change. METHODS: Pathology reports from April 2006 to April 2016 were reviewed to isolate cases that would have been designated as neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features...

In 1937, Heinrich Klüver and Paul Bucy described a dramatic behavioral syndrome in monkeys after bilateral temporal lobectomy. The full Klüver-Bucy syndrome (KBS) - hyperorality, placidity, hypermetamorphosis, dietary changes, altered sexual behavior, and visual agnosia - is evident within 3 weeks following operation. Some KBS features (i.e., hyperorality, placidity, hypermetamorphosis) persist indefinitely, whereas others gradually resolve over several years. Klüver and Bucy were initially unaware of an earlier report of KBS by Sanger Brown and Edward Schäfer in 1888...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a common surgical management of morbid obesity. Major complication rate is 3-8%. Staple line leak is one of the most serious complications. In a small group of patients, a gastro-pulmonary fistula is formed. Endoscopic and minimally invasive measures are the first line of treatment with considerable success rate. There are very poor data in the literature what should be done in cases of failure. In this paper, we report our positive experience with definitive surgical repair...

It has been shown that the use of drain in thyroid surgery does not reduce the reoperation rate for hemorrhage. The aim of this systematic review was to update the knowledge of the role of drain in thyroid surgery in term of postoperative complications, pain and hospital length of stay (LOS). A systematic search was performed in the PubMed and Embase database to identify all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing clinical outcomes in patients who underwent thyroidectomy or lobectomy with or without drainage...

Although several thyroid associations have published various guidelines, controversies especially in cases of micropapillary thyroid cancer (MPTC) still exist. This survey was designed to collect information about diagnostic tests and treatments performed on patients with MPTC and help identify current trends in thyroid surgery.We developed questionnaires about the management methods for MPTC, which were used to identify factors related to indications of fine needle aspiration (FNA), type of surgery, and central lymph node dissection (CLND)...

RATIONALE: Pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (P-EHE) is a rare tumor, with no established standard treatment. Overexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2) has been reported in some P-EHE patients. Apatinib, a new small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that specifically targets VEGFR-2, has therapeutic benefits in some advanced tumors. However, its efficacy in P-EHE cases has not been reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: Herein, we presented a 44-year-old man with recurrent hemoptysis for approximately 9 years...

OBJECTIVES: The incidence of both solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) and non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) has increased over the past decade. We performed concomitant video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery with modified epicardial radiofrequency ablation procedure for NVAF and SPN resection. METHODS: Sixteen patients (7 men, mean age 62.6 ± 11.2 years) with SPN and NVAF underwent this procedure. Of these patients, 10 had paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and 6 persistent atrial fibrillation...

INTRODUCTION: Single-port thoracoscopic surgery has widened the current minimally invasive surgical techniques toward more less invasive procedures in terms of reducing the number of incisions. However, the current status of oncologic outcome with this technique is not well known for lung cancer surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the oncologic outcomes in early stage lung cancer for impact of the survival outcomes with our experience of conversion to a single-port approach from the conventional three-port approach...

BACKGROUND: Overexpression and constitutive activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) 3 have been suggested in the tumorigenesis of many human cancers, including multiple carcinomas, melanoma, and lymphoma. The diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in lobectomy specimens is usually straightforward, but distinguishing cirrhosis from well-differentiated HCC can be challenging in core biopsies. Our aims were to investigate the expression level of STAT3 and phosphorylated STAT3 (pSTAT3) in HCC and cirrhosis, and the application of STAT3 in the differential diagnosis of HCC and cirrhosis...
