Abstract Background The aim of this study is to evaluate whether adenocarcinomas of the esophagogastric junction (AEG) are better staged as cancers of the esophagus (TNM-EC) or stomach (TNM-GC) according to the 8th edition of the UICC classification. Methods A single-center cohort of 246 patients operated on for AEG type II was staged according to the 8th edition of the UICC classification for esophageal and stomach cancer. Kaplan-Meier and univariate Cox regression analyses were performed to in...

Structured Abstract Background The peritoneal cancer index (PCI) calculated during exploratory laparotomy is a strong prognostic factor for overall survival (OS) in patients with colorectal peritoneal metastases (PM) who undergo cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS + HIPEC). Progression of the PCI between diagnostic laparoscopy (DLS) and potential CRS + HIPEC (ΔPCI) might be a more dynamic prognostic factor for OS after CRS + HIPEC. Materials and methods Betw...

Abstract Multigene assays (MGAs) guide treatment in early-stage breast cancer (ESBC) enabling selective and effective use of adjuvant chemotherapy (CT). Support for all MGAs had previously been derived from retrospectively-analyzed, prospective studies. Only 2 ESBC MGAs, the 70-gene signature (MammaPrint®) and the 21-gene Recurrence Score (RS) assay (Oncotype DX®), are now supported by entirely prospective randomized phase 3 trials. These studies varied in their primary objectives, design, and e...

Abstract Background With growing popularity and experience in laparoscopic liver surgery, the options for more difficult procedures increase. Only small case series have been published regarding laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) for tumours in proximity to major vessels (MVs). The aim was to compare outcomes of LLR for tumours located less or more than 15 mm from MVs. Methods This was a retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database of consecutive LLR (October 2011–August 2017). P...

Abstract Introduction Morbidity associated with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is due to the synergistic effect of cytoreduction, effect hyperthermia and the cytotoxic agents used for HIPEC. This study was done to analyse the postoperative morbidity in relation to the chemotherapy agent used in patients undergoing CRS-HIPEC for peritoneal surface malignancy (PSM) in Indian set up. Materials and methods Patient with PSM, underwent CRS-HIPEC as p...

Abstract Background The aim was to study the patterns of target region (greater omentum, lesser omentum, falciform and umbilical round ligament) involvement in patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery (CRS) from various primary tumors, factors affecting involvement and implications on surgical practice. Methods All patients undergoing CRS from July 2018 to December 2018 were included in this prospective study. The incidence of target region involvement in presence and absence of visible disease...

Abstract Background Aim of work was to investigate the prognostic impact of liver resection (LR) on locally advanced Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (IC) in comparison to alternative palliative chemotherapy (CTx). Method A retrospective cohort study performed utilizing Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to identify Locally advanced IC patients. Based on the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging System, locally advanced IC was defined as: Stage III and IVa - 7...

Abstract The application of endoscopic resection (ER) in gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) is controversial. We carried out a meta-analysis to compare the safety and efficiency of ER with laparoscopic resection (LR) in patients with gastric GISTs. We searched PubMed to identify studies comparing ER with LR in GIST. The outcomes focused on two areas: safety, including operation time, blood loss, length of hospital stay, time to flatus, time to liquid, time to soft diet, and postoper...
