Nonpharmacologic Interventions for Improving Sleep Disturbances In Patients with Lung Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Lung cancer patients suffer from higher levels of sleep disturbances compared to other cancer patients and this leads to greater distress, poorer function and lower quality of life. Nonpharmacologic interventions have demonstrated improvements in the context of breast cancer but their efficacy in the lung cancer population is unclear.

Conclusions In this study, we detected a relationship between duration of the disease, level of perceived stress and quality of life. The longer the disease lasts, the higher it tends to catastrophize. This may influence development or increase of the anxiety and depression and may decrease patients ’ quality of life.

Authors: Rio PD, Viani L, Bertocchi E, Iapichino G, Luzietti E, Dell'Abate P, Sianesi M Abstract AIM: The identification of prognostic factors in gastric cancer is important for predicting patients' survival and determining therapeutic strategies. MATERIALS OF STUDY: A retrospective analysis ofpatients who underwent surgery for gastric cancer between 1996 and 2010. The appropriate cut-off value of tumor size related to survival was determined using receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves and it was 2,5 cm. Patients were divided into three groups: a small size group (SSG,

CONCLUSIONS: Perineural invasion is associated with higher stage and poorer survival in surgically treated GBC patients. In patients with locally advanced GBC resection of the extrahepatic biliary duct and frozen section examination of the distal stump must be taken into consideration, especially in cases of tumor arising from the hepatic side of the gallbladder. In cases without residual disease but with pathological evidence of PNI, a careful follow-up is suggested to early detect recurrences.

CONCLUSIONS: Major complications after radical resection for rectal cancer are dependent on multiple variables such as male patients, those admitted in emergency and patients with hypoproteinemia. Location of tumor on middle rectum, manual suture of anastomosis, number of lymph nodes> 1 were associated with high rate of morbidity. Patients with coronary heart disease and diabetes mellitus didn't had statistical significance, but the rate of morbidity and mortality remains high in this groups.
