Preoperative evaluation of the segmental artery by three-dimensional image reconstruction vs. thin-section multi-detector computed tomography.

Conclusions: Both 3D image reconstruction and thin-section MDCT provided precise preoperative information about SA. The 3D image reconstruction software "Exoview" could visualize SA for surgeons. However, the thin-section MDCT provided a better evaluation of small SA branches. PMID: 32944331 [PubMed]

Rationale: Signet ring cell carcinoma of the stomach is prone to relapse and metastasis after traditional surgical treatment, and the prognosis is also poor. We improved the concept of treatment and conducted cytoreductive surgery (CRS) plus hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) combined with intraperitoneal (IP) and intravenous (IV) chemotherapy for a gastric signet-cell carcinoma patient. Patient concerns: A 65-year-old male patient with complaint of intermittent hematemesis for over 10 days was referred to our hospital for treatment. The patient developed hematemesis of 800 mL without obvious causes o...

Objective The aim of the study was to describe the incidence and correlates of atypical glandular cell (AGC) Pap tests in a low socioeconomic status, underserved population. Materials and Methods Medical records of patients with AGC Pap tests at a single institution were reviewed from January 2013 to August 2019. Baseline characteristics were extracted including age, body mass index, birth control, abnormal uterine bleeding, and human papillomavirus (HPV). All colposcopy and endometrial biopsies were classified into negative/low-risk (polyps, tubular metaplasia, microglandular hyperplasia, cervical intraepithelial neo...

We report an interesting case of successful ongoing management of metastatic lung cancer to the pelvis along with an extensive literature review. A 47-year-old lady with recurrent respiratory tract symptoms and chest pain was diagnosed with advanced stage non-small-cell lung cancer (Stage T4N2M1A). Five years following diagnosis and several cycles of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, aged 52, she complained of post-menopausal bleeding and pelvic discomfort. An endometrial biopsy confirmed a malignancy morphologically and immunohistochemically similar to her lung adenocarcinoma, in keeping with metastatic disease. She underwen...

Conclusions: Precautions should be taken in the management of gastric IND patients, especially when risk factors, including surface erythema, spontaneous bleeding, lesion size ≥ 1 cm, and depressed morphology are present. Considering the combined effect of the presence of multiple risk factors on the incidence of high-grade dysplasia or adenocarcinoma, endoscopic resection should be recommended if a gastric IND patient has at two or more of these factors.

Oral cavity metastases are rare events and occur mainly in the jaws compared with the soft tissues. A 69-year-old Caucasian woman was referred to the stomatology service complaining of a bleeding oral lesion, which developed 4 months before the appointment. The patient had a renal adenocarcinoma, which was treated with right radical nephrectomy and chemotherapy. Immunotherapy with nivolumab was started 1 month before the lesion appearance. On examination, we observed an erythematous, pediculated mass, about 1.5 cm in diameter, with ulcerative surface on the right buccal mucosa.

Abstract External auditory canal cancer is a rare disease which can be treated by surgery or chemoradiation. The most common histological type is squamous cell carcinoma, but rare types such as adenocarcinoma have been reported and are thought to be derived from the ceruminous glands. Here, we present a case of ceruminous adenocarcinoma, not otherwise specified (NOS) in the external auditory canal. A 72-year-old woman was referred to our department with discomfort due to a mass in the external ear canal. No typical symptoms of malignancy, such as pain or bleeding, were noted at the initial examination. The patient...

CASE SUMMARY: A 65-year-old man underwent colonoscopy to evaluate rectal bleeding and was found to have a low rectal mass. Biopsy revealed moderately differentiated microsatellite stable adenocarcinoma. The tumor was palpable at the fingertip in the anterior rectum with the inferior border 5 cm from the anal verge by rigid proctoscopy. CEA was 0.8 ng/mL. CT imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis showed no evidence of distant metastases. MRI confirmed a 5-cm mass with one 8-mm mesorectal lymph node metastasis and no extramural venous invasion. The tumor penetrated the mesorectal fat to a depth of 4&thinsp...
