BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Conservative surgery for soft-tissue sarcoma (STS) within multimodality treatment attempts to reconcile two contradictory requirements: assuring a good oncological outcome through a wide resection and preserving the function. The aim of our study is to verify whether our conservative approach to STS met these objectives. METHODS: A retrospective database analysis was performed in adults with primary limb or trunk wall STS operated in a single center from 1989 to 2012...

Tumour-related peer support groups (PSGs) show long-term development in quality of life and coping, and decrease distress in cancer care. To clarify channels of social support in oncologic rehabilitation by combined exercise and psychosocial therapy, individual semi-structured interviews were conducted after 1 year additional belly dance rehabilitation in a closed PSG among 51 patients with malignant tumour diagnosis in Budapest, Hungary. Interview data were transcribed and analysed using qualitative content analysis (ATLAS...

BACKGROUND: Clinical research has established the efficacy of exercise in reducing treatment-related side-effects and increasing wellbeing in people with cancer. Major oncology organisations have identified the importance of incorporating exercise in comprehensive cancer care but information regarding effective approaches to translating evidence into practice is lacking. This paper describes the implementation of a community-based exercise program for people with cancer and the protocol for program evaluation...

OBJECTIVE: Glioma survival correlated with the extent of resection and the functional status of the patient. We detailed functional results along with oncological results after a functional-based resection of gliomas located within eloquent regions. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Single centre prospective series of adult patients with gliomas located within eloquent regions, treated with maximal resection according to functional boundaries using intraoperative cortico-subcortical monitoring under awake conditions, with available functional outcomes (language and cognitive assessments, neurological status, ability to work) and oncological outcomes (extent of surgical resection, survivals)...

OBJECTIVE: Incidentally discovered diffuse low-grade gliomas progress in a fashion similar to their symptomatic counterparts. Their early detection allows more effective pre-emptive and individualized oncological treatment. We assessed the safety and efficacy of maximal safe resection according to functional boundaries for incidental diffuse low-grade gliomas in eloquent areas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two-centre retrospective series of adult patients with incidental diffuse low-grade gliomas located within/close to eloquent areas in the dominant hemisphere, treated with maximal surgical resection according to functional boundaries under intraoperative functional cortico-subcortical monitoring under awake conditions, and with a minimal follow-up of 24months...

: 41 Background: SAR may be an alternative when hospice is declined. However, the outcomes of discharges to SAR in cancer patients with progressive (chemotherapy-refractory) disease are not known. We examined the characteristics and outcomes of patients with debility from progressive metastatic GI cancer who were discharged to SAR after an admission to our center. METHODS: An institutional electronic database was queried to identify patients of the GI medical oncology service of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center who had been discharged to a SAR facility...

: 269 Background: Hospital readmission rate is increasingly suggested as a quality care metric. Currently there are no standard criteria for an avoidable readmission in oncology. Although patients with cancer have been identified as being at increased risk of readmission, there has been little to examine the reasons for the oncology patient readmission. The aim was to examine the profiles of patients with an unplanned readmission within 30 days after discharge by an oncology provider and to measure the unplanned 30-day readmission rate...

: 83 Background: Although cancer centers have focused on optimizing seamless Multidisciplinary Care (MDC) at tumor boards and/or clinics, there has been little published on effective ways to involve supportive services into the management of cancer patients. Historically, supportive services have been initiated when there is an active need rather than in anticipation of that need. As an alternative to pursuing such "crisis management" in our patients, Bon Secours St. Francis Cancer Center (BSSF) initiated Interdisciplinary Care (IDC) Rounds in an effort to anticipate patient needs, enhance quality of life (QoL), and potentially limit avoidable emergency room and hospital admissions...

REVIEW
Silvia Grob, Cornelia Bläuer, Irena Anna Frei
RATIONALE: Women with gynaecological cancer face various physical, social and emotional challenges concerning their health. Existing research shows that case management can improve patient satisfaction and reduce readmission rates. Although nurse case management was introduced on a gynaecological oncology unit in a Swiss university hospital in 2013, little is known about the experiences of female patients on a unit that uses this model of care. AIMS: The aims were to explore women's experiences and to gain deeper understanding about hospital-based nurse case management on a gynaecological oncology unit and to qualitatively evaluate the concept of nurse case management...

Oncologic and traumatic defects of the maxilla can pose a challenge to patients, reconstructive surgeons, and maxillofacial prosthodontists in an attempt to provide satisfactory treatment. Oral-nasal and oral-antral fistulas are frequently treated with soft tissue flaps, osteocutaneous flaps, or a maxillofacial obturator. Often, surgical reconstruction is preferred for patient quality of life and definitive restoration. Surgical reconstruction also avoids the difficulties encountered with fabricating an obturator in an irradiated field with the often-resultant microstomia...

PURPOSE: Physical activity is known to minimize the long-term side effects of cancer treatment. Yet, rates of physical activity participation by cancer survivors are significantly lower compared to the general population. The purpose of this pilot study was to examine the efficacy, feasibility, and acceptability of a technology-based intervention to promote maintenance of physical activity after completing an exercise-based oncology rehabilitation program. METHODS: The pre-post 4-week intervention included support delivered through tailored text messages, Fitbit® self-monitoring, and brief health coaching sessions...

Vishwa S Raj, Julie K Silver, Terrence M Pugh, Jack B Fu
As cancer evolves from a terminal illness to a chronic medical condition, so too does the view of clinical services. Palliative care and physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) will increase in acceptance because they provide a valuable resource. The overarching theme is improving cancer-related symptoms or treatment-related side effects, improving patient health-related quality of life, lessening caregiver burden, and valuing patient-centered care and shared decision making. Managing symptom burden may improve therapy participation/performance...

REVIEW
Lisa Marie Ruppert
Spinal tumors are classically grouped into 3 categories: extradural, intradural extramedullary, and intradural intramedullary. Spinal tumors may cause spinal cord compression and vascular compromise resulting in pain or neurologic compromise. They may also alter the architecture of the spinal column, resulting in spinal instability. Oncologic management of spinal tumors varies according to the stability of the spine, neurologic status, and presence of pain. Treatment options include surgical intervention, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormonal manipulation...
