Objective: To analyze the differences of clinicopathological characters and prognostic factors between invasive micropapillary carcinoma of the breast (IMPC) and invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) not otherwise specified of the breast. Methods: Patients who were treated from June 2008 to April 2016 in Breast Center of Beijing Hospital were retrospectively analyzed to evaluate the differences between IMPC (n=59) and IDC (n=1 080).

OBJECTIVES: Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (SVAs) are rare and are often complicated by aortic insufficiency (AI). Treating AI is important for achieving good long-term results in patients with SVA. Here, we have summarized our experience with the surgical management of patients with SVA with concomitant AI. METHODS: Patients who were diagnosed with SVA and underwent surgical treatment between January 2008 and May 2016 were included. Clinical characteristics, including age, gender, SVA anatomy and concurrent anomalies, were analysed...

OBJECTIVES: Division of incompletely lobulated fissures is often performed during surgical resection of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC); however, the effect of lobulation on tumour recurrence is unclear. This study aimed to assess the prognostic effect of lobulation in patients with NSCLC according to their preoperative and operative findings. METHODS: A retrospective study of patients with p-stage I NSCLC who underwent lobectomy was conducted between April 2008 and April 2016...

OBJECTIVES: The usefulness of a recently developed advanced lung cancer inflammation index (ALI) has been reported in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small-cell lung cancer. However, no previous studies have examined the prognostic significance of ALI in patients with operable NSCLC. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the relationship between ALI and the prognosis of resected NSCLC. METHODS: Three hundred and forty-three patients with NSCLC who underwent surgery at our institution between 2008 and 2012 were included...

Importance: The high risk of skin cancer after organ transplantation is a major clinical challenge and well documented, but reports on temporal trends in the risk of posttransplant cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are few and appear contradictory. Objective: To study temporal trends for the risk of skin cancer, particularly SCC, after organ transplantation. Design, Setting, and Participants: Population-based, nationwide, prospective cohort study of 8026 patients receiving a kidney, heart, lung, or liver transplant in Norway from 1968 through 2012 using patient data linked to a national cancer registry...

Importance: Despite lack of evidence of their utility, biomarkers of ovarian reserve are being promoted as potential markers of reproductive potential. Objective: To determine the associations between biomarkers of ovarian reserve and reproductive potential among women of late reproductive age. Design, Setting, and Participants: Prospective time-to-pregnancy cohort study (2008 to date of last follow-up in March 2016) of women (N = 981) aged 30 to 44 years without a history of infertility who had been trying to conceive for 3 months or less, recruited from the community in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, area...

OBJECTIVES: Stent graft-induced distal re-dissection (SIDR) is a burdensome complication after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for Type B aortic dissection. We developed a novel method to prevent SIDR by placing a small-diameter short stent graft [Excluder Aortic Extender (Cuff)] at the distal landing zone (DLZ) and reviewed its effectiveness in this study. METHODS: Ninety patients who underwent TEVAR for Type B aortic dissection using commercially available devices between January 2008 and September 2016 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The emergence, accumulation and spread of HIV-1 drug resistance strains in Africa could compromise the effectiveness of HIV treatment programs. This study was aimed at determining the incidence of virological failure and acquired drug resistance mutations overtime and identifying the most common mutational pathways of resistance in a well characterized HIV-1C infected Ethiopian cohort. METHODS: A total of 320 patients (220 ART naïve and 100 on first lines ART) were included and followed...

BACKGROUND: In Quebec, Canada, a school-based HPV vaccination for girls has been offered since 2008. The vaccine used in the program targets HPV16/18, responsible for ∼70% of cervical cancers and HPV6/11, responsible for the majority of anogenital warts. The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of HPV in vaccinated and unvaccinated women. METHODS: Women aged 17-29 years were eligible to participate. Participants' age, vaccination status and diverse risk factors were assessed by a computer-assisted questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) is the standard for surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), but postoperative complications and pain are common in patients with severe neurological impairment (NI) and those undergoing reoperative procedures. Transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) is an endoscopic alternative to treat GERD. Long-term results in pediatric populations are unknown. METHODS: Eleven patients who underwent TIF between January 2008 and September 2010 were included...

PURPOSE: To compare the outcomes of contracture release by arthroscopic versus open surgical approach in patients with external snapping hip (ESH) caused by gluteal muscle contracture (GMC). METHODS: Medical records of patients with ESH due to GMC who underwent open surgery (n = 44) or arthroscopic surgery (n = 48) between October 2008 and October 2014 were reviewed. Patients were followed up at 1, 3, 12, and 24 months postoperatively. Operation time, incision length, postoperative pain, postoperative complication rate, and recurrence rate were compared between the 2 groups...

INTRODUCTION: The goal in the treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is to achieve a stable and concentric reduction and to create a congruent relationship between the femoral head and the acetabulum. This study discusses the causes of loss of reduction in DDH patients who had a concentrically reduced hip at the time of removal of the hip spica cast and cessation of brace use and who later appeared with hip redislocation after mobilisation and ambulation. In addition, the possible interventions in such cases are also discussed...

PURPOSE: To examine the perioperative outcomes following robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) in patients with localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to identify the predictors of Pentafecta achievement following RAPN. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data from 362 patients with RCC who underwent RAPN from 2008 to 2016. The criteria for Pentafecta achievement was defined as the Trifecta [warm ischemia time (WIT) ≤ 25 minutes, negative surgical margin, and no significant perioperative complications]; with the addition of renal function preservation, including over 90% preservation of the estimated-glomerular filtration rate (e-GFR); and no stage upgrade of chronic kidney disease at 1 year after surgery...

Data on the likelihood of Mycoplasma genitalium infection in sexual contacts, particularly for men who have sex with men (MSM), are needed to form an evidence base for guidelines. We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of patients attending a sexual health clinic in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, during 2008-2016. We calculated the proportion of contacts with M. genitalium infection and determined factors associated with infection. Among those patients reporting sexual contact with an M. genitalium-infected person, 48...
