The patient was a 71-year-old woman with ER(+), PgR(-), HER2(3+), and Ki-674 2% breast cancer. After surgery for left breast cancer(Bt+Ax), epirubicin, cyclophosphamide therapy was administered as postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy, and nabPTX plus trastuzumab therapy was started sequentially. The patient was hospitalized due to severe neutrope- nia(neutrophils 0/mm3)from nabPTX, but her condition stabilized after admission. However, the patient suddenly went into shock after 3 days and was thus transferred to the ICU...

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. New targeted and individualized therapies and drugs provide a survival benefit for an increasing number of patients, but can also cause severe side effects. An increasing number of oncology patients are admitted to intensive care units (ICU) because of cancer-related complications or treatment-associated side effects. Postoperative care, respiratory distress and sepsis are the leading causes for admission. Tumor mass syndromes and tumor lysis may require urgent treatment...

BACKGROUND: Routine chest X-Ray (CXR) is recommended for neutropenic fever(NF) management however its role is relatively understudied in haematology patients. METHODS: Retrospective, single-centre analysis of haematology patients admitted with NF between January 2011-December 2015. Baseline demographics, treatment details and outcomes were collected from electronic patient records. CXRs underwent independent radiology review. Primary endpoints were proportion of NF episodes in which CXR detected a probable chest infection in the absence of respiratory symptoms/signs, and/or resulted in a change in antibiotic management...

Rates of blood transfusion are reported as high as 32% in women undergoing major gynecologic cancer surgery. Therefore, care of the gynecologic oncology patient who refuses blood products, such as Jehovah's witnesses, can pose a unique challenge. The objective of this study was to determine rate of adverse post-operative outcomes within 30 days of surgery in Jehovah's witnesses with gynecologic cancer. This was a retrospective cohort study of Jehovah's witnesses undergoing laparotomy or minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for gynecologic cancer at a single institution...

OBJECTIVE: Admissions to intensive care units (ICU) are costly, but are necessary for some patients undergoing radical cancer surgery. When compared to primary debulking surgery (PDS), neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) with interval debulking surgery, is associated with less peri-operative morbidity. In this study, we compare rates, indications and lengths of ICU stays among ovarian cancer patients admitted to the ICU within 30days of cytoreduction, either primary or interval. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed of patients with stage III-IV ovarian cancer who underwent surgical cytoreduction at two large academic medical centers between 2010 and 2014...

Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) have compromised marrow function and chemotherapy causes further suppression. As a result complications are frequent, and patients may require admission to the intensive care unit (ICU). How codes status changes when these events occur and how those changes influence outcome are largely unknown. Outcomes for adult patients with AML, undergoing induction chemotherapy, and transferred to the ICU between January 2000 and December 2013 were analyzed. 94 patients were included...
