Abstract Background Tumor burden is an important factor in defining prognosis among patients with primary and secondary liver cancers. Although the eighth edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer staging system has changed the criteria for staging patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma to better define the effect of tumor burden on prognosis, the impact of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma tumor burden on overall survival has not been examined using a machine-learning tool. Methods...

Claudin-18 (CLDN18) is a highly specific tight junction protein of the gastric mucosa. An isoform of CLDN18, the Claudin 18.2, has recently emerged as an innovative drug target for metastatic gastric cancer. We investigated the immunohistochemical profile of CLDN18, p53, p16, E-cadherin, MSH2, MSH6, MLH1, PSM2, HER2, and PDL-1 in a large series of 523 primary gastric carcinomas (GCs; n = 408) and gastro-oesophageal carcinomas (GECs; n = 115) and 135 matched and synchronous nodal metastases. The ...

Abstract Introduction Failure to rescue (FTR) patients from postoperative complications could contribute to the variability in surgical mortality seen among hospitals with different volumes. We sought to examine the impact of complications and FTR on mortality following rectal surgery. Methods The National Italian Hospital Discharge Dataset allowed to identify 75,280 patients who underwent rectal surgery between 2002 and 2014. Hospital volume was stratified into tertiles. Rates of major complica...

Background The Medicare Severity-Diagnosis Related Group coding system (MS-DRG) is routinely used by hospitals for reimbursement purposes following pancreatic surgery. We aimed to determine whether specific pancreatectomy MS-DRG codes, when combined with distinct clinicopathologic and perioperative characteristics, increased the accuracy of predicting 30-day readmission after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD).

Abstract Background Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio and platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio may be host factors associated with prognosis. We sought to determine whether neutrophil-to-lymphocyte and platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio were associated with overall survival among patients undergoing surgery for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Methods Patients who underwent resection for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma between 1990 and 2015 were identified from 12 major centers. Clinicopathologic factors and o...

Background The consequences of lymphadenectomy (LND) on cirrhotic patients undergoing hepatectomy for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) have not been investigated. We sought to analyze the impact of LND on morbidity among patients undergoing resection for ICC.
