Abstract Background Inequities in cancer survival are well documented. Whether disparities in overall survival (OS) result from inherent racial differences in underlying disease biology or socioeconomic factors (SEF) is not known. Our aim was to define the association of race/ethnicity and SEF with OS in pts with cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Methods Patients with CCA of all sites and stages in the National Cancer Data Base (2004-13) were included. Racial/ethnic groups were defined as non-Hispanic W...

BACKGROUND: Patient age is a significant factor in preoperative selection for major abdominal surgery. The association of age, tumor biology, and postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) remains ill-defined. METHODS: Retrospective analysis was performed for patients who underwent a CCR0/1 CRS/HIPEC from the US HIPEC Collaborative Database (2000-2017). Age was categorized into /= 65 years. Primary outcome was p...

Soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) are rare tumors that account for 1% of all adult malignancies, with over 100 different histologic subtypes occurring predominately in the trunk, extremity, and retroperitoneum. This low incidence is further complicated by their variable presentation, behavior, and long-term outcomes, which emphasize the importance of centralized care in specialized centers with a multidisciplinary team approach. In the last decade, there has been an effort to improve the quality of car...

OBJECTIVE: The Stop the Bleed (STB) Campaign supported by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACSCT) and numerous other national organizations aspires to translate lifesaving military successes into reductions in civilian hemorrhagic deaths. While a curricular framework has been described, precise approaches to hands-on training are not specified and training success rates are not yet optimized. Our aim was to test the feasibility and effectiveness of an STB program enhanced by...

Abstract Background Radiographic prediction of PCI can improve patient selection for cytoreductive surgery. We aimed to determine the correlation of CT-predicted PCI (CT-PCI) and MRI-predicted PCI (MRI-PCI) with intraoperative-PCI, and if a preoperative-PCI cutoff is associated with incomplete cytoreduction. Patients and Methods Patients from the US HIPEC Collaborative (2000-17) with appendiceal, colorectal, or peritoneal mesothelioma (PM) histology who underwent cytoreductive surgery were inclu...

Recent advances in effective medical therapies have markedly improved the prognosis for patients with advanced melanoma. This article aims to highlight the current era of integrated multidisciplinary care of patients with advanced melanoma by outlining current approved therapies, including immunotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, and other strategies used in both the adjuvant and the neoadjuvant setting as well as the evolving role of surgical intervention in the changing landscape of...
