Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is the most common complication after major pancreatic resections and is the greatest contributor to postoperative morbidity and mortality following pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). The relatively recent establishment of a standardized definition of POPF by the International Study Group of Pancreatic Fistula (ISGPF) allowed for the delineation between innocuous biochemical POPF (grade A) and clinically relevant (CR) POPF (grades B and C). This classification sy...

PurposeCervical cancer is a major cause of mortality in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and the most common cancer diagnosed in women in Botswana. Most women present with locally advanced disease, requiring chemotherapy and radiation. Care co-ordination requires input from a multidisciplinary team (MDT) to deliver appropriate, timely treatment. However, there are limited published examples of MDT implementation in LMICs.MethodsIn May 2015, a weekly MDT clinic for gynecologic cancer care...

Rising cancer incidence and mortality in India emphasize the need to address the increasing burden of this disease and the stark inequities in access to radiotherapy and other essential medical treatments. State-of-the-art technology is available within the private sector and a few hospitals in the public sector, but 75% of patients in the public sector in India do not have access to timely radiotherapy. This inequity in access to radiotherapy in the public sector is amplified in rural areas, wh...

Gynecologic carcinomas, including cervical cancer, present a significant burden on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Brachytherapy plays an integral role in the treatment of gynecologic carcinomas, as it is essential for both curative and palliative treatment. However, there are numerous geographic and economic barriers to providing brachytherapy to cancer patients in LMICs. This article examines the role and delivery of brachytherapy in gynecological cancer treatment; brachytherapy capa...
