We discuss the diagnosis and the management of endometrial carcinoma in a single horn of bicornuate uterus in a 64-year-old woman as a case report. The case underwent laparoscopic radical hysterectomy and bilateral iliac lymphadenectomy. The gross examination of the uterus revealed a bicornuate uterus with a greater horn of 12 × 9 × 8 cm and a smaller horn of 10 × 3 cm. The cavity of the greater horn showed a neoplastic growth of 10 cm with infiltration of about 1,8 cm of the myometrium from whole thickness of 1...

BACKGROUND: Radical resection by multivisceral resection of colorectal T4 tumours is important to reduce local recurrence and improve survival. Oncological safety of laparoscopic resection of T4 tumours is controversial. However, robot-assisted resections might have advantages, such as 3D view and greater range of motion of instruments. The aim of this study is to evaluate the initial results of robot-assisted resection of T4 rectal and distal sigmoid tumours. METHODS: This is a cohort study of a prospectively kept database of all robot-assisted rectal and sigmoid resections between 2012 and 2017...

BACKGROUND: Endometrial cancer is the sixth most common cancer in women worldwide and most commonly occurs after the menopause (75%) (globocan.iarc.fr). About 319,000 new cases were diagnosed worldwide in 2012. Endometrial cancer is commonly considered as a potentially 'curable cancer,' as approximately 75% of cases are diagnosed before disease has spread outside the uterus (FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) stage I). The overall five-year survival for all stages is about 86%, and, if the cancer is confined to the uterus, the five-year survival rate may increase to 97%...

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a well characterized gonadotropin that controls primarily development and functions of ovarian follicles in mammalian species. FSH binds to a specific G protein-coupled receptor (FSHR) belonging to the glycoprotein hormone receptor family that plays an essential role in reproduction. Although the primary location of FSHR is in the gonads (mainly in ovarian follicles), FSHR protein and/or mRNA have also been detected in extragonadal female reproductive tissues including embryo, placenta, endometrium, cervix, ovarian cancer tissues, and/or endometriotic lesions in several species...

Apigenin is a flavonoid with well-documented anti-cancer properties; however, its mechanisms of action are still unclear. We previously identified apigenin as a potential phytoprogestin, a natural product with a chemical scaffold that interacts with the progesterone receptor (PR). Our objective was to characterize the ability of apigenin to interact with PR through molecular docking studies, in vitro activity assays, and the ability of apigenin to elicit progestin-like effects in vivo. Molecular docking confirmed that apigenin could interact with PR, though with lower affinity than progesterone due to fewer van der Waals interactions...

For gynecological cancers, even at an early stage, the standard treatment is "radical excision" involving hysterectomy (radical or not) with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. But for young patients with early stage disease, many recent studies have focused on preservation of subsequent fertility by keeping at least one ovary and the uterus. The main objective of this fertility-sparing surgery is to preserve fertility, if this can be accomplished without increasing the oncological risks. Whether the initial site of the cancer is the cervix, uterine fundus or ovary, the oncologic validation of fertility-sparing treatment requires several evaluation criteria: a rigorous clinical, radiological and surgical staging to verify that the pathology is truly at an early initial stage; expert pathologic interpretation of biopsy specimens to validate the histological criteria of "good prognosis"; provision of complete and understandable patient education verifying the true objectives for this fertility-sparing treatment (whose intent is to retain a potential for subsequent fertility without guaranteeing it) and provision of an explanation of the oncological constraints and implications of fertility-sparing surgery in the event of a possible pregnancy...

Brachytherapy is a standard treatment modality for locally advanced cervical cancer. In patients with uterine anomalies, the radiation dose to the target volume and the organs at risk can vary depending on the positioning of the brachytherapy tandem implant. However, there have been few reports concerning the use of brachytherapy in patients with uterine anomalies. The present study reports the case of a 55-year-old woman with locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix and complete septate uterus...

OBJECTIVE: The diagnosis of carcinoma in both the uterus and the ovary simultaneously is not uncommon and raises the question of synchronous primaries vs. metastatic disease. Targeted sequencing of sporadic synchronous endometrial and ovarian carcinomas has shown that such tumors are clonally related and thus represent metastatic disease from one site to the other. Our purpose was to investigate whether or not the same applies to Lynch syndrome (LS), in which synchronous cancers of the gynecological tract are twice as frequent as in sporadic cases, reflecting inherited defects in DNA mismatch repair (MMR)...

Cancer during pregnancy is a particularly challenging complication. The incidence has increased in recent years due to childbering at an advanced maternal age due to career choices and/or the development of reproductive technology. Approximately two thirds of cancer cases during pregnancy are comprised of invasive cervical cancers and breast cancer. Cancer during gestation is characterized by a need for specialized treatment due to major changes in the hormonal profile (estrogen-progesterone), metabolism (enhancement of anabolism), hemodynamic changes (hyperdynamic circulation), immunologic changes (cell mediated and humoral immunity), increased angiogenesis (increased blood flow towards the uterus)...

The population of cancer survivors with prior cancer is rapidly growing. Whether a prior cancer diagnosis interferes with outcome is unknown. We conducted a pan-cancer analysis to determine the impact of prior cancer history for patients newly diagnosed with cancer. We identified 20 types of primary solid tumors between 2004 to 2008 in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. Demographic and clinicopathologic variables were compared by chi-squared test and t-test as appropriate. The propensity score-adjusted Kaplan-Meier method and Cox proportional hazards models were used to evaluate the impact of prior cancer on overall survival (OS)...

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) is the only therapeutic option in a number of heritable hematologic disorders as well as hematologic cancers. Many parents and families fail to find an HLA-identical donor for their affected family member. In such cases, conceiving for a savior baby remains the only option especially in countries without access to national registries. By means of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques, in a single experiment on single cell products of IVF, a healthy HLA-identical embryo can be implanted in the uterus of a concerned mother...

Endometrial cancer incidence has been increasing over the last two decades, likely due to the obesity epidemic. The majority of these cancers are confined to the uterus at diagnosis and can be cured with surgery. Overall, five-year disease-specific survival is about 80%, but some patients have locally advanced or metastatic disease that is not amenable to control with radiation and/or chemotherapy. Disease-related symptoms are most common in this subset of patients with endometrial cancer, although women with early-stage disease may also experience side effects related to surgical menopause or adjuvant treatment...
