Postoperative Complications Independently Predict Cancer-Related Survival in Peritoneal Malignancies

ConclusionsReduction of postoperative complications after CRS –HIPEC is essential for optimal short- and long-term outcomes. For assessing total burden of postoperative complications per patient, CCI is superior to CDC and more sensitive for assessing surgery- and cancer-related outcomes after CRS–HIPEC.

ConclusionThe proposed multiparametric MRI-based SLICs+MTh method performs noninvasive assessment of NACT response in osteosarcoma that may improve cancer treatment monitoring, planning, and overall prognosis.Key Points• The simple linear iterative clustering supervoxels and Otsu multithresholding-based technique (SLICs+MTh) successfully estimates the proportion of necrosis, viable tumor, and edema in osteosarcoma in the course of chemotherapy.• The proposed technique is noninvasive and uses multiparametric MRI to measure necrosis as an indication of anticancer treatment response.• SLICs+MTh-based necrosis w...

Authors: Urban AE, CubaƂa WJ Abstract Eugeroics are a relatively new class of wakefulness-promoting agents. Thegroup includes adrafinil, modafinil and armodafinil. Modafinil is the most widely used and the best studied agent. Indications for the use of modafinil include the treatment of narcolepsy, shift-work sleep disorders and excessive daytime sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Many studies show the utility of modafinil and armodafinil in the treatment of depression - both in monotherapy andas potentiation therapy if needed. Modafinil has proven to be effective in the treatment of residual symp...

Conclusion For patients with rare tumors, CRS and HIPEC is feasible with an acceptable perioperative morbidity and mortality. To improve knowledge in patient selection and outcome, rare tumors treated with CRS and HIPEC should be documented in central databases (as for example BIG RENAPE, Pierre-Benite, France).

CONCLUSION: More extended cytoreductive surgery is needed in case of peritoneal carcinimatosis from ovarian cancer. In case of PC from mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix, it's difficult to calculate the extent of the disease and avoid unnecessary surgical excisions. More data is needed to confirm the above. KEY WORDS: Cytoreductive surgery, Gallbladder, HIPEC, Peritoneal carcinomatosis, Round ligament of the liver. PMID: 26344805 [PubMed - in process]
