Authors: Tsai YC, Lee HL, Kuo CC, Chen CY, Hsieh KL, Wu MH, Wen YC, Yu HW, Hsu FC, Tsai JT, Chiou JF Abstract Background: Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) is an alternative local therapy for patients with painful bone metastasis. However, little is known about the prognostic and predictive factors of MRgFUS in treating bone metastasis. Materials and methods: This retrospective study analyzed the performance status, treated site, pretreatment pain score, pretreatment tumor volume and lesion coverage volume factor (CVF) of 31 patients who underwent MRgFUS. A numerical rating scale for pai...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Bone metastases are the most common malignant bone tumours and most commonly occur in the spine, pelvis, proximal femur and proximal humerus. Prostate and breast cancer most often metastasize to the bone. DIAGNOSTICS: In patients with a history of tumours and local unspecific pain in the back and extremities, further diagnostic examinations should be performed. For the initial diagnosis a conventional radiograph of the whole bone in two planes is sufficient. For further diagnostics, the imaging may be supplemented with CT, MRI, scintigraphy and a PET-CT (PET-MRI) if th...

Gastric stump ‐pleural fistula is a common complication following gastroesophageal anastomosis in patients diagnosed with gastric cancer. Mortality is high because of the severe subsequent relevant complications caused by the fistula. Here we report five cases of gastric stump‐pleural fistula diagnosed by air perfusion radiography under digital subtraction angiography (DSA). DSA air perfusion radiography provides a reliable basis for the development of clinical programmes; it is a simple method which does not involve any pain or trauma to the patient.

ConclusionPrimary adenocarcinoma of the jaw is extremely rare, except for 2–3% central mucoepidermoid carcinomas. The possibility of a metastatic tumor should be a consideration when encountering unusual histomorphology of an adenocarcinoma in the jaw bone.

CONCLUSIONS: 1. Patients with long-bone cancer metastases with pathological fractures or risk of fracture require surgical management. 2. Nailing or modular prosthesis produced the best functional result at 6 weeks post-operatively. 3. All methods of surgical treatment reduced pain and improved the quality of life.

481Introduction: The sigma-1 receptor is recognized as a unique class of non-G protein coupled, non-ionotropic intracellular chaperone protein within the mitochondria-associated endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membranes [1]. It consists of 223 amino acids with a molecular weight of 25.3 kDa. The X-ray structure of sigma-1 receptor showed a membrane-bound trimeric assembly with one transmembrane region [2]. The sigma-1 receptor plays a major role in various pathological conditions in the periphery (e.g. vascular diseases, cancer) and in the central nervous system (CNS), where they are implicated in several neuropsychiatric and n...

Conclusions: The proposed nomogram is a reliable and robust tool for accurate prognostic prediction in patients with extremity soft tissue LMS. Introduction Soft tissue leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is an aggressive sarcoma, which originates from smooth muscle cells (1). Soft tissue LMS accounts for about 5–10% of all soft tissue sarcomas (2). It occurs in different sites, including the retroperitoneum, intraabdominal sites, and extremities (3). Extremity LMS comprised about 10–15% of extremity sarcomas, with a preference for the lower limb (4–6). Extremity LMS tends to have a better prognosis than uterine...
