Chronic calculus cholecystitis: Is histopathology essential post-cholecystectomy ?

Conclusion: All cholecystectomy specimens must be examined by histopathologists who must decide whether processing for microscopy is needed. Microscopic examination may be reserved for the specimen with a macroscopic lesion. This will result in a reduction of costs and pathology workload without compromising patient management.

AbstractGall bladder carcinoma (GBC) is a worldwide problem, with a higher incidence in areas of the world where cholelithiasis is common. As GBC is usually diagnosed in an advanced stage, the mortality is high. An understanding of the molecular pathways of carcinogenesis and the mutations involved in the development and progression of GBC could be useful in early diagnosis. Understanding molecular markers of prognosis as well as predictors of outcome could also potentially benefit patients undergoing treatment. New therapies targeting major molecular pathways and immunotherapy are exciting novel therapeutic options. This ...

AbstractGastric outlet obstruction (GOO) occurs when there is mechanical obstruction impending gastric emptying. GOO has both benign and malignant aetiologies. In this paper we want to discuss, clinical presentation and management of malignant GOO. This is a retrospective observational study of 5  years in patients presenting with malignant GOO. Study was conducted in Dr. B. Borooah Cancer Institute, Guwahati, India. Patients with malignant GOO who were operated were included in this study. Chi-square test was used to evaluate association between categorical values. Independentt test and one-way ANOVA (analysis of var...

Narula, Alan Prem Kumar, Gautam Sethi, Kwang Seok AhnAbstractOxymatrine (OMT) is a quinolizidine alkaloid derived from the roots of the Sophora genus plants. It has been widely used as a treatment for chronic hepatitis infections and inflammatory diseases due to its effective immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, the potential anti-cancer effects of OMT have been actively studied in various ca...

Abstract All different types of metabolism of tumors are dependent on the flow of water molecules through the biological membrane, where fluid transfer interceded by aquaporins (AQPs) are the basis means for water entrance into the cells or outside them. Aquaporins play other roles including cellular migration, cellular expansion and cellular adhesion facilitation. Therefore, regulators of AQPs may be useful anticancer agents. Medline, Scopus, Embase, and Web of Sciences were searched. From among the papers found, 106 were related to the subject. All of the examined cancers in relation to AQP1 included adenoid cys...

Conclusion: The results of this study reaffirm that cholelithiasis is a strong predisposing factor for GBCA and females with gallstones in their sixth decade, are more at risk. Although number of stones was not found to be an independent risk factor, patients with stones <3 cm (mostly multiple) were found to be more at risk in our study.
