Extended Follow up of Patients Treated with Bendamustine for Lymphoid Malignancies

Conclusion Bendamustine is an effective therapy with limited long-term sequelae in patients with lymphoid malignancies. Teaser Bendamustine is an effective treatment for lymphoid malignancies and its role continues to expand. In order to determine the long-term sequelae associated with bendamustine, 194 patients treated with bendamustine (most commonly with rituximab) were retrospectively reviewed. The rate of secondary malignancies was minimal and no therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myelogenous leukemia were reported. No deaths from infection were attributable to bendamustine.

CONCLUSION: TAVR with a balloon-expandable system is safe and effective and can be used for patients with severe AS in China. It requires careful patient selection and preoperative assessment so as to reduce the 30-day postoperative mortality rate. PMID: 29236149 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report pulmonary resections for lung cancers in 2 patients with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) identified preoperatively. In case 1, right upper lobectomy was performed as the definitive operation for both lung cancer and PAPVC in the same lobe. In case 2, because lung cancer and PAPVC existed in different lobes, cardiac catheterization was performed to evaluate the need for correction of the PAPVC. Then, left lower lobectomy was safely performed without correcting the PAPVC located in the left upper lobe. The treatment plan for patients with PAPVC who require pulmonary resection should be careful...

We describe the case of a 69-year-old man with a thoracic pseudoaneurysm caused by a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. He had a large mass inside the aortic arch. Five weeks later, an asymptomatic aneurysm protruding from the minor curvature of the distal aortic arch was observed. We suspected a mycotic pseudoaneurysm and performed total arch replacement with an omental pedicle flap graft. Intraoperative tissue cultures and histopathologic tests identified no bacteria, however. Eventually, a pathologic examination revealed that the structure initially suspected to be an intramural thrombus was a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma....

Authors: Salavastru C, Tiplica GS, Fritz K Abstract With a clear increase in the incidence and a continuously earlier onset, the main risk factors for the development of basal cell carcinoma are still exposure to sunlight, fair skin, immunosuppression, carcinogens such as arsenic, chronic irritations and certain genodermatoses. Treatment options for localized resectionable basal cell carcinoma include micrographically controlled surgery, simple excision, curettage, laser ablation, cryosurgery, imiquimod, 5‑fluorouracil, photodynamic treatment and radiotherapy. Non-surgical treatment options are more suited for ca...
