Authors: Wang Z, Liang J, Chen J, Mei S, Liu Q Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Anastomotic leakage is one of the most serious complications after laparoscopic low anterior resection Low Anterior Resection (LAR) for rectal cancers. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a transanal drainage tube placed for the prevention of anastomotic leakage after laparoscopic LAR. METHODS: The clinical data of 220 patients with rectal cancer who underwent laparoscopic LAR using the double stapling technique Double Stapling Department of Colorectal Surgery, National Cancer Center/National Clinical Re...

AbstractNosocomial infections caused by COVID-19 will result in the immediate closure of the infected medical facility due to the highly contagious nature of COVID-19, further worsening medical shortages. We performed a Delphi consulting study to develop a risk model based on the experience of recently resumed activities in many cancer hospitals in China. Similar method had been used in a Chinese cancer hospital and effectively reduced the nosocomial Infection. We believe that the model can quickly identify COVID-19 cluster risks for medical facilities. The evaluation model could also be integrated into the hospital &rsquo...

AbstractPurposeApproximately 30% of NSCLC patients cannot obtain tissue sample or sufficient tissue sample for molecular subtyping. Cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in plasma is a potential alternative specimen type to assess genomic variants in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The purpose of this study was to identify the genomic alteration profile of ctDNA in real-world Chinese NSCLC patients.MethodsA total of 325 subjects with pathological diagnosis of NSCLC were enrolled. 10  ml Peripheral blood was collected in streck tube, and ctDNA NGS analysis was carried out using an Ampliseq-based 11-...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the impact of disclosure/nondisclosure of cancer diagnosis on patients ’ posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS), posttraumatic growth (PTG), and quality of life (QOL).MethodsPatients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who were admitted for potentially curative treatments in a teaching hospital were recruited. Patients were interviewed at admission regarding their QOL and their attitude towards disclosure of diagnosis. They were interviewed again for QOL, PTSS, and PTG at discharge and at 1  month after discharge.ResultsThere were 300 patients recruited, 88.3% of whom preferred d...

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this study was to evaluate patient-related attitudinal barriers and identify associated factors in Chinese cancer inpatients receiving opioids and to explore relationships between patient-related attitudinal barriers, analgesic adherence and pain relief.MethodsA cross-sectional study was conducted. A total of 146 participants completed face-to-face surveys, including information about demographics, the Barriers Questionnaire-Chinese (BQ-C), analgesic adherence, average pain and breakthrough pain in the past 24 h. The Mann-WhitneyU test and Kruskal-Wallis test were performed to test the differe...
