Adrenalectomy by laparoscopic anterolateral transperitoneal approach for patients with previous abdominal surgery.

Conclusions: Choosing the type of approach is related to surgeon experience, although 79-94% of the surgeons prefer the transabdominal lateral approach. We believe that with an experienced surgical team, there is no difficulty in performing adrenalectomy by transabdominal approach, with no significantly prolonged operating time, even though the patient has previously had abdominal surgery.

AbstractWith the length of about 26 –31 nt, PIWI-interacting RNA (piRNA) is a small non-coding RNA (ncRNA) that interacts with PIWI proteins to form the piRNA silencing complex (piRISC). PIWI is a subfamily of Argonaute, and piRNA must bind to PIWI to exert its regulatory role. Current studies indicated that piRNA and PIWI are sign ificantly abnormally expressed in gastric, breast, kidney, colon, and lung cancers, and are involved in the initiation, progression, and metastasis of cancers, which may be the potential diagnostic tools, prognostic markers, and therapeutic targets for cancers. By reviewing piRNA rece...

AbstractOmental flap was introduced for breast reconstruction after mastectomy either alone or as an adjunct to prosthetic reconstruction. Laparoscopically harvested omental flap was used successfully for this issue. Most of reports had described its use after partial mastectomy, skin or nipple areola sparing mastectomies. In this case, we used the thoracodorsal artery perforator (Tdap) flap as a cover for the omental flap in a patient who underwent modified radical mastectomy. Modified radical mastectomy was done in the usual fashion. The descending branch of the thoracodorsal vessel was traced till its main perforator in...

ConclusionsLong-term OS in Indian patients in non-metastatic GC with EOX chemotherapy and D2 lymphadenectomy is similar to previously published Western data. Younger Indian patients fare worse than their older counterparts and this needs further evaluation.

Authors: Feng X, Zhang M, Meng J, Wang Y, Liu Y, Liang C, Fan S Abstract We aimed to investigate the potential mechanisms of progression and identify novelprognosis-related biomarkers for papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) patients. The relateddata were derived from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), and then, analyzed by Weightedgene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA). The correlation between each module andthe clinical traits were analyzed by Pearson's correlation analysis. Pathway analysis wasconducted to reveal potential mechanisms. Hub genes within each module were screenedby intra-module analysis, and vis...

We report a unique case of a 60-year-old woman developing endometrial cancer in a uterine deposit 18 years after she had undergone laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy with morcellation for benign pathology. She had used unopposed estrogen as menopausal hormone therapy. She presented with a pelvic mass that was causing pressure symptoms. On imaging, the mass had an enhancing vascular nodular component and appeared to abut normal ovaries and the residual cervix. She proceeded to laparotomy, where a 12 cm pelvic mass was found morbidly adherent to the bladder anteriorly and to the cervical stump. The pelvic mass was excise...
