The systemic impact of a surgical procedure in older oncological patients

ConclusionsThe perioperative inflammatory response is related more to surgical characteristics rather than to preoperative factors (with the exception of disease stage). Elderly oncological patients undergoing longer lasting, intracavitary surgical procedures for more advanced disease stages develop the most intense inflammatory response.

Conclusions: 4FMFES-PET enables detection of RL95-2 ER+ uterine tumors in a xenografted mouse model with a similar contrast as with FDG-PET. Preclinical data obtained foretell the feasibility of 4FMFES imaging for clinical uterine cancer applications. Orthotopic mouse models for both uterine and ovarian cancers are under development and will be evaluated in the near future.

Abstract Liver transplantation (LTPL) is the only curative option for patients with end stage liver disease (ESLD) or with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Eurotransplant in Leiden, the Netherlands, is responsible for organ allocation. The model of end stage liver disease (MELD) score, which describes the severity of the liver disease, is decisive for organ allocation. The heterogeneous patient collective and hepatic-related comorbidities and their dynamics represent challenges. The anesthesiologist is responsible for evaluating the overall prognosis, whereby cardiac, pulmonary, renal and neurological comorbidities...

Intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) is an integral part of the treatment for patients with cervical carcinoma. Since the procedure of ICBT is usually performed in operating room (OR) under anesthesia, it may be distressing to patients. The brachytherapy procedure related distress is rarely studied and the literature is extremely sparse. The Purpose of our study was to evaluate the stress levels in patients undergoing ICBT.

Conclusions: Magnesium sulfate is an important adjuvant drug in the practice of anesthesia, with several clinical effects and a low incidence of adverse events when used at recommended doses. Introduction Magnesium is the fourth most common ion in the body, and it participates in several cellular processes, including protein synthesis, neuromuscular function and stability of nucleic acid, as well as regulating other electrolytes such as calcium and sodium. Magnesium acts as a cofactor in protein synthesis, neuromuscular function and stability and the function of nucleic acids. It is a component of adenosine 5-triph...
