Resection of Septal Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma and Primary Reconstruction of the Surgical Defect via Open Rhinoplasty
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is one of the most common minor salivary gland malignancies of the head and neck region. However, adenoid cystic carcinoma of the nasal septum is extremely rare. The authors herein report a case of a septal adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 68-year-old man who complained of nasal bleeding and nasal obstruction for several months. Diagnostic nasal endoscopy revealed a protruding mass arising from the anterosuperior part of the nasal septum. The tumor was removed with a safety margin using the open rhinoplasty approach and primary reconstruction of the surgical defect was performed using septal cartilage. Histopathology indicated an adenoid cystic carcinoma with cribriform pattern. Two years postoperatively, there was no evidence of recurrence, the functional and cosmetic results were good, and the patient was satisfied with the treatment outcome.
Cowden syndrome (CS) is a multiple hamartoma syndrome associated with the development of various tumors, including endometrial cancer. However, the histology of CS-associated endometrial cancer remains to be fully described. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with CS having endometrial endometrioid carcinoma with ovarian metastasis demonstrating morula-like features. A 31-yr-old, nulliparous, Japanese woman presented with abnormal genital bleeding. Endometrial biopsy revealed endometrioid carcinoma with an extensive morular formation, partially resembling atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM). Moreover, ...
Authors: Lee YR, Park SY, Tak WY Abstract Background/Aims: The treatment outcomes and prognostic markers of acute variceal bleeding (AVB) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients remain unclear. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical outcomes and prognostic factors of AVB in HCC patients. Methods: Cirrhotic patients with endoscopically confirmed AVB between 2007 and 2013 were enrolled in this prospective study. Prognostic factors were identified by multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression analysis. Results: Among the 329 enrolled patients, 125 patients (38.0%) were diagnosed with HCC. The 6-week mor...
Conclusions: The most appropriate IHC panel to differentiate endometrioid and serous endometrial carcinomas includes ER, PR, IMP3, p53, and p16.
ConclusionLaparoscopic resection of bleeding HCC is achievable and can be considered in the treatment algorithm of selected patients.
CONCLUSION: This study found WPR in addition to CT gives a significant OS benefit. Further study is warranted to determine which subgroups may benefit the most from this novel treatment strategy. PMID: 31810653 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Kifle E, Hussein M, Alemu J, Tigeneh W Abstract Background: Anemia is a common finding in cancer, which is caused by many factors. It is a major cause of morbidity in cancer patients, worsens disease status and impairs treatment outcome; however, little is known about the prevalence of anemia and associated factors among cancer patients during diagnosis in developing countries like Ethiopia. In response to this, we have conducted research with the aim of assessing the prevalence of anemia and associated factors among newly diagnosed patients with solid malignancy at Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital (TASH...
An 89-year-old man with a history of alcoholic cirrhosis underwent transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The 52 × 50 × 42-mm HCC was widely spread throughout the right lobe without any vascular invasion (Fig.1). Incidentally, hematuria developed after the insertion of a urinary catheter for standard perioperative management. However, the hematuria got progressively worse. Subsequently, cystoscopy w as performed that revealed a small bleeding polypoid lesion located on the anterior wall of the urinary bladder (Fig.
Conclusion: The MIVA transcervical approach was technically feasible and reliable, with less invasiveness for PTC patients with PPLN metastases. Future studies are needed to accumulate more experience, investigate the indications of the technique, and determine the long-term oncological safety.
Conclusion: Percutaneous chest biopsy proved a high diagnostic yield, especially for malignancy, and is considered very safe when performed by trained physicians.
ConclusionIn this retrospective study, the functional morbidity and complications of TORS for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma resection were favourable in reconstructed and non-reconstructed patients.Level of Evidence: Level III, therapeutic study.
