PURPOSE: In this study, we developed a 3D-printed deformable pelvis phantom for evaluating spatial DIR accuracy. We then evaluated the spatial DIR accuracies of various DIR settings for cervical cancer. METHODS: A deformable female pelvis phantom was created based on patient CT data using 3D printing. To create the deformable uterus phantom, we first 3D printed both a model of uterus and a model of the internal cavities of the vagina and uterus. We then made a mold using the 3D printed uterus phantom...

Rectovaginal fistula (RVF) and vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) are infrequent but distressing complications after pelvic surgery. However, their adequate treatment is not well described. Here, we simultaneously encountered and successfully treated RVF and VVF after radical surgery for rectal cancer. A 70-year-old woman underwent low anterior resection (LAR) combined with resection of the uterus, the bilateral adnexa, and the upper side of the vagina, as well as diverted ileostomy for rectal cancer. A month after the surgery, she developed urinary incontinence and underwent medical treatment, but her symptoms did not improve...

REVIEW
Panayiotis Constantinou, Marc Tischkowitz
Gynaecological cancers accounted for 16.3% of all cancers and 13.9% of all cancer deaths in women globally in 2012. Cancer of the cervix is the most common gynaecological cancer, followed by cancers of the uterus and the ovary. Although cervical cancer is almost exclusively triggered by human papilloma virus infection, approximately 5% of all uterine cancers and 20% of all ovarian cancers are caused by germline mutations in cancer predisposition genes. A number of genetic syndromes are associated with rarer gynaecological tumours...

Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) are a class of compounds that interact with estrogen receptors (ERs) and exert agonist or antagonist effects on ERs in a tissue-specific manner. Tamoxifen, a first generation SERM, is used for treatment of ER positive breast cancer. Raloxifene, a second generation SERM, was used to prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis. The third-generation SERM bazedoxifene (BZA) effectively prevents osteoporosis while preventing estrogenic stimulation of breast and uterus. Notably, BZA combined with conjugated estrogens (CE) is a new menopausal treatment...

AIM: Endocervical curettage (ECC) at the time of conization has been reported to be effective for diagnosing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and/or early stage cervical cancer. We aimed to verify the accuracy of ECC with conization. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the records of 540 patients with suspected neoplastic cervical lesions who underwent conization at the Yokohama City University Hospital from January 2008 to December 2015. To validate the effectiveness of ECC for evaluating endocervical lesions, histopathologic findings from ECC samples were compared with those from endocervical specimens obtained by conization...

Fibroblast activation protein alpha (FAP) is a unique dual peptidase of the S9B serine protease family, being capable of both dipeptidyl peptidase and endopeptidase activities. FAP is expressed at low level in healthy adult organs including the pancreas, cervix, uterus, submaxillary gland and the skin, and highly upregulated in embryogenesis, chronic inflammation and tissue remodelling. It is also expressed by cancer-associated stromal fibroblasts in more than 90% of epithelial tumours. FAP has enzymatic and non-enzymatic functions in the growth, immunosuppression, invasion and cell signalling of tumour cells...

: 202 Background: Cancer pain is the most important problem to overcome in terminally ill cancer patients (TICPs). Recently, the fentanyl patch (FP) has been widely used for the treatment of cancer pain. However, the FP requirement largely varies in patients. The purpose of this study was to identify the determinants of the FP requirement in TICPs and propose effective pain relief using a FP. METHODS: In a retrospective chart review, we investigated cancer patients who were admitted in our hospital from April 2012 to July 2015 and used FP until their deaths...

: 205 Background: Review of treatment plans by a second radiation oncologist is an important quality indicator in radiation oncology. Peer review (PR) can improve quality of care in individual patients by detecting clinical and planning issues and recommending plan changes. This study reports the frequency and nature of these changes across all 14 radiation oncology programs (ROPs) in Ontario, Canada. METHODS: We identified all peer-reviewed curative treatment plans delivered in Ontario within a 3-month study period between Dec 2013-Nov 2014 using Cancer Care Ontario's Activity Level Reporting System, where data on treatment intent and date, disease site treated, PR status, timing of PR, and nature of recommended changes were available...

The stomach is an infrequent localization of tumor metastases, and metastases originating from primary gynaecological cancers are particularly rare. We described the case of three females with ovarian, uterine, and breast metastases in the stomach, and we performed a systematic review of the literature of cases diagnosed at endoscopy. Overall, data of 18 patients with gastric metastases originating from the ovary, 11 from the uterus, and 159 from breast cancer were analyzed. Therefore, gastric metastasis mainly occurs from breast cancer, whilst both ovarian and uterine metastases are distinctly less frequent, but not impossible...

Metastases in the hand bones are a rare form of cancer presentation. Their appearance as a sign of carcinoma is even rarer and is associated with a poor prognosis. While amputation is recommended in cases of isolated metastases in patients with at least a few months of survival, radiation therapy may be useful for treating pain and partially restoring function. We conducted a retrospective review of 5 consecutive patients (2 male, 3 female; mean age of 46 years) presenting with metastases in the hand bones who had lung (n=2), skin, uterus and kidney cancers...

Hysterectomy is an important surgical procedure in the care of women with pelvic organ prolapse or lower urinary tract malignancy. Therefore, hysterectomy can be a commonly performed surgical procedure in the urologist's practice. Obtaining a thorough gynecologic history is necessary prior to performing a hysterectomy and prolapse repair. Specifically, reviewing prior cervical cancer screening, risk factors for uterine malignancy, and the role of prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy are important steps of the reconstructive surgical planning process...

An 80-year-old woman had undergone a right hemicolectomy for ascending colon cancer 9 months prior to the current presentation. CT and PET-CT showed a solitary tumor measuring 55mm in diameter at the uterus and rectum. Three 5mm ports and two 12mm two ports were placed. The sigmoid colon was mobilized using a medial approach as usual in laparoscopic surgery. The rectum and uterus were mobilized and were resected. We inserted the End-catchTM in from the vagina and removed the specimen. The patient had no abdominal pain and was discharged from the hospital 9 days after the operation...
