A case report of perirenal metastases from cervical squamous cell carcinoma on 18F FDG PET-CT

Conclusions: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of perirenal metastases from squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. Although an uncommon site of distant metastases from cervical cancer, FDG avid soft tissue deposits in the perirenal space should raise suspicion of metastasis, and early biopsy should be done to confirm the diagnosis. Patients with metastatic cervical cancer, including those with perirenal metastasis, have poor outcomes.

ConclusionThere is no association between early initiation of adjuvant chemotherapy and post-operative complications including wound healing. Early initiation of chemotherapy ( ≤ 7 days) is feasible in unilateral WT or high-risk neuroblastoma patients who are otherwise doing well without resulting in a preponderance of wound healing complications.

AbstractPurposeTo explore the treatment of pediatric hepatic hemangioma and the role of the Hisense computer-assisted surgery (Hisense CAS) system in diagnosis and treatment.MethodsWe collected the clinical and follow-up data of all pediatric hepatic hemangioma cases in our pediatric surgery department from March 2008 to March 2021 for retrospective analysis. The Hisense CAS system was used to create three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions based on computed tomography data.ResultsThere were 71 patients, mainly infants (prenatal to 39  months). There were more males than females (42 vs. 29), and the alpha-fetoprotein le...

Conclusions: In trials published from 2010 to 2019, M-M-RII continued to be safe and immunogenic in all age groups studied. These data, along with the results of earlier trials, indicate that the performance of the vaccine has been consistent across more than 30 years of postlicensure studies.

Purpose of review This review highlights recent research advances regarding the pathophysiology and treatment of gastroparesis. Recent findings Differences in brain activity have been identified on functional MRI imaging in gastroparesis patients with nausea. Abdominal pain is common in patients with gastroparesis and does not correlate with the severity of gastric emptying delay, though may be associated with depression and anxiety. Autonomic dysfunction may play an important role in the pathophysiology of gastroparesis. There is increasing sentiment that gastroparesis should be considered a part of the same sp...

Purpose of review Gastric intestinal metaplasia (GIM) is an attractive target for surveillance and treatment as it can progress to gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC). Yet, GIM remains a challenging area for clinicians as most patients do not progress to cancer, and there are conflicting data regarding the benefits of surveillance and therapy. This review aims to summarize recently published GIM surveillance guidelines, to discuss, which patients with GIM may benefit from treatment, and to review pivotal and recent literature on GIM therapy. Recent findings Guidelines published by American, British, and European gastro...

Purpose of review To review studies from 2020 to 2021 in esophagogastric cancer. Recent findings After up front D2 gastrectomy for lymph node-positive gastric cancer, 6 months of adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 and oxaliplatin achieved superior disease-free survival (DFS) compared with 1 year of S-1. The addition of adjuvant radiotherapy, however, added no benefit. After chemoradiotherapy and surgery in esophageal and gastroesophageal junction cancer, in patients with residual disease found at surgery, 1 year of adjuvant nivolumab substantially improved DFS compared with observation alone, leading to regulatory a...

Purpose of review Gastric cancer remains one of the most common causes of death globally. Increasing evidence suggests that many gastric cancer cases can be prevented by eradicating its most important etiological agent, Helicobacter pylori. Using the search terms ‘H. pylori’ and ‘gastric cancer’ we reviewed the scientific literature regarding the association between H. pylori and gastric cancer published from 1 January 2020 to 30 May 2021. We review the most important articles relevant to the clinical issues regarding H. pylori eradication for gastric cancer prevention. Recent findings In...
