CONCLUSION: Perforated appendiceal tumors present in various ways but predominantly at cross-sectional imaging or coincidentally at laparoscopy or laparotomy. All abdominal surgeons will occasionally encounter cases, often unexpectedly, and recognition and referral to a specialized unit results in excellent outcomes in most cases.

Authors: Salvador S, Scott S, Glanc P, Eiriksson L, Jang JH, Sebastianelli A, Dean E Abstract OBJECTIVES: To aid primary care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, and gynaecologists in the initial investigation of adnexal masses, defined as lumps that appear near the uterus or in or around ovaries, fallopian tubes, or surrounding connective tissue, and to outline recommendations for identifying women who would benefit from a referral to a gynaecologic oncologist for further management. INTENDED USERS: Gynaecologists, obstetricians, family physicians, general surgeons, emergency medicine specialists, radio...

Authors: Auer RC, Sivajohanathan D, Biagi J, Conner J, Kennedy E, May T Abstract Objective: The purpose of the present review was to provide evidence-based guidance about the provision of cytoreductive surgery (crs) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (hipec) in the treatment of peritoneal cancers. Methods: The guideline was developed by the Program in Evidence-Based Care together with the Surgical Oncology Program at Ontario Health (Cancer Care Ontario) through a systematic review of relevant literature, patient- and caregiver-specific consultation, and internal and external reviews. Results: Re...

Discussion Peritoneal fluid is normal. It decreases the friction of the peritoneum covering abdominal and pelvic organs and helps to protect them and allow their movement. A normal amount of peritoneal fluid is expected on radiological evaluation. Increased peritoneal fluid is a continuum and is concerning as a wide variety of pathological causes are associated with it such as abdominal trauma and appendicitis. At the far end of the scale is ascites that is the accumulation of free fluid more than 25 ml. It is usually associated with abdominal distension but fluid must accumulate before distension can occur and therefore i...

Sharing a poster presentation done in Medcon2019 by Harika B 1styear PG& DR.ANV Prasad, Associate Professor NRI Institute of Medical Sciences CT Findings: Severe ascites seen. Multiple small enhancing nodules seen in the parietal peritoneum, visceral peritoneum and omentum with predominant pelvic distribution.Heterogeneously enhancing lesion of 3x2.1x1.8cm seen in RIF. Appendix is not seen separately from the lesion. Final Impression of Peritoneal carcinomatosis (pseudomyxoma peritoni) - likely due to mucinous adeno Ca. appendix.Peritoneal carcinomatosis(PC)  is the term given to malignant tumour seeding of ...

Authors: Kajiyama H, Suzuki S, Utsumi F, Nishino K, Niimi K, Mizuno M, Yoshikawa N, Kawai M, Oguchi H, Mizuno K, Yamamuro O, Shibata K, Nagasaka T, Kikkawa F Abstract Malignant ovarian neoplasm is one of the most lethal malignancies among cancers of the female reproductive system. Occasionally, these tumors originate from non-ovarian organs as metastatic lesions since the ovary is a frequent metastatic target of many cancers. However, there limited clinical information on metastatic ovarian carcinoma (MOC) and its hallmarks are unknown. During the period of 1986-2015, 4,284 patients with malignant ovarian neoplasm ...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Mahesh ShettyOnce a pelvic mass is identified on an ultrasound examination, the first step in the differential diagnostic work up is to determine its origin. Most lateral pelvic masses in women are ovarian in origin, and the distinction between ovarian and nonovarian mimics of ovarian cancer is critical for appropriate clinical and surgical management. Adnexal masses detected on ultrasound can be further characterized by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) when needed. Superior contrast resolution, multiplanar imaging, charact...

ConclusionGoblet cell carcinoma of the appendix is very rate. It tends to seed throughout the peritoneum, making aggressive surgical cytoreduction and chemotherapy viable treatment options. Investigation into the molecular basis of these tumors may improve the diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic decisions regarding these patients. ∆Np73 seems a good candidate for further analysis in longer series.
