BACKGROUND: The standard treatment for locally advanced unresectable squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oesophagus is chemoradiation with cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (CF-RT). This multicentre phase II trial assessed the safety and efficacy of chemoselection with docetaxel plus cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF) induction chemotherapy (ICT) and subsequent conversion surgery (CS) for initially unresectable locally advanced SCC of the oesophagus. METHODS: Patients with clinical T4 and/or unresectable supraclavicular lymph node metastasis were eligible...

BACKGROUND: In patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), approximately 25% have locally advanced disease. For patients with irresectable (N2-3 or T4) or inoperable disease, treatment consists of chemoradiotherapy. Concomitant chemoradiotherapy improves survival compared to sequential chemoradiotherapy in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Treatment plans and completion of treatment was evaluated for all patients treated at the St. Antonius Hospital from 2008-2011 for NSCLC stage IIIA/B not eligible for surgery...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has been shown to effectively reduce postoperative pain, enhance mobilization of the patients, shorten in-hospital length of stay, and minimize postoperative morbidity rates. The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate neuroendocrine and respiratory parameters as stress markers in cancer patients who underwent lung wedge resections, using both mini muscle-sparing thoracotomy and VATS approach. METHODS: The patients were randomly allocated into two groups: Group A (n=30) involved patients who were operated on using the VATS approach, while in group B (n=30), the mini muscle-sparing thoracotomy approach was used...

INTRODUCTION: Current guidelines include both induction therapy plus an operation and chemoradiotherapy (CRT) as options for clinical stage IIIA (cIIIA) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after multidisciplinary evaluation. We explored the use of operations for cIIIA NSCLC in the Netherlands. METHODS: Data about the primary treatment of patients with cIIIA NSCLC (according to the seventh edition of the Tumour, Node, and Metastasis Classification of Malignant Tumours) between 2010 and 2013 were extracted from the Netherlands Cancer Registry...

OBJECTIVES: Interleukin (IL)-33 protects against infection and inflammation; however, few studies have explored the relevance of IL-33 in lung cancer patients. We evaluated relation of plasma IL-33 levels with development and progression of lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 160 patients with lung cancer and 160 controls with normal lungs were enrolled. Plasma IL-33 levels were measured using a specific sandwich ELISA; these levels were followed-up in 18 patients who underwent surgery and in 14 patients treated with chemotherapy...

INTRODUCTION: An international database was collected to inform the 8 edition of the anatomic classification of lung cancer. The present analyses concern its primary tumor (T) component. METHODS: From 1999 to 2010, 77,156 evaluable patients, 70,967 with non-small-cell lung cancer, were collected; and 33,115 had either a clinical or a pathological classification, known tumor size, sufficient T information, and no metastases. Survival was measured from date of diagnosis or surgery for clinically and pathologically staged tumors...

Although there have been many advancements in the multidisciplinary management of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), surgery remains the primary modality of choice for resectable lung cancer when the patient is able to tolerate lung resection physiologically. There have been recent advances in surgical diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. Increasing use of low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening for lung cancer has resulted in increased detection of small peripheral nodules or semi-solid ground glass opacities...

Occasionally, unexpected neurological deficits occur after lumbar spinal surgery. We report a case of monoparesis after lumbar decompressive surgery. A 63-year-old man, who had undergone decompression of L4-5 for spinal stenosis 4 days previously in the other hospital, visted the emergency department with progressive weakness in the left leg and hypoesthesia below sensory level T7 on the right side. He had been cured of lung cancer with chemotherapy and radiation therapy 10 years previously, but detailed information of radiotherapy was not available...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to show the incidence of distant metastases (DM) in salivary gland cancer as well as the types of histology most commonly associated with it and to identify factors predictive of DM. METHODS: The study identified 301 patients who underwent surgery for cancer of the major salivary glands at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer center between 1985 and 2009. Clinical, tumor, and treatment characteristics were recorded. Tumors were categorized as low-, intermediate-, and high-risk pathology based on histologic subtype and grade...

BACKGROUND: Combined positron-emission tomography and computed tomography (pet-ct) reduces futile thoracotomy (ft) rates in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (nsclc). We sought to identify preoperative risk factors for ft in patients staged with pet-ct. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients referred to the BC Cancer Agency during 2009-2010 who underwent pet-ct and thoracotomy for nsclc. Patients with clinical N2 disease were excluded. An ft was defined as any of a benign lesion; an exploratory thoracotomy; pathologic N2 or N3, stage iiib or iv, or inoperable T3 or T4 disease; and recurrence or death within 1 year of surgery...

OBJECTIVES: We examined whether the changes in clinical practice with time correlated with the changes in the 90-day mortality following pneumonectomy. METHODS: The clinical records of consecutive patients undergoing pneumonectomy in two French centres from 1980 to 2009 were prospectively collected. The 90-day postoperative course was retrospectively studied according to clinical characteristics, underlying diseases, type of surgery and time-period (1980-1989; 1990-1999 or 2000-2009)...

T4 tumors that invade the heart, great vessels, or esophagus comprise a heterogenous group of locally invasive lung cancers. Prognosis depends on nodal status; this relationship has been consistently demonstrated in many of the small series of extended resection. Current National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines do not recommend surgery for T4 extension with N2-3 disease (stage IIIB). However, biopsy-proven T4 N0-1 (stage IIIA) may be operable. Localized tumors with invasion of the aorta, pulmonary artery, left atrium, or esophagus represent a small subset of T4 disease...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intratumoral chemotherapy with paclitaxel liposome combined with systemic chemotherapy as induction therapy in clinical stage III unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Between January 2011 and July 2014, 48 patients, stage III, performance status 0-1, with unresectable clinical stage IIIA or IIIB NSCLC suitable for definitive radiation treatment, were included in the study. Patients with T3N1M0 and T4 (ipsilateral lung nodules) N0-1M0 were not included...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate of C-choline PET/CT in bladder cancer (BC) patients with suspected relapse after primary therapy. METHODS: Twenty-five BC patients with surgery (21 [84%]) or radiotherapy (4 [16%]) with curative intent had PET/CT for suspicion of relapse. Mean TNM was T2b N0 M0 (range, T1a N0 M0 to T4 N2 M0), whereas mean age was 71.3 years (range, 50-85 years). Nine (36%) of 25 were treated with adjuvant or salvage chemotherapy within 6 months before PET/CT...

BACKGROUND: Rectal cancer patients have a higher incidence of pulmonary metastases than those with colon cancer. This study aimed to examine the effects of rectal cancer level on recurrence patterns in rectal cancer patients. METHODS: Patients with T3/T4 rectal cancers who underwent surgery between 2002 and 2006 were recruited in this study. All the patients were followed up on until death. Recurrence patterns and survival rates were calculated in relation to clinical variables...
