Prognostic Impact of Vessels that Encapsulate Tumor Cluster (VETC) in Patients who Underwent Liver Transplantation for Hepatocellular Carcinoma
AbstractBackgroundThere is limited published information about prognostic value of vessels that encapsulate tumor cluster (VETC) based on their involvement with immune cells in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our goal was to evaluate prognostic impact of VETC in patients who underwent living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) for HCC, focusing on the involvement of VETC with immune status in tumor microenvironment (TME).MethodsUsing a database of 150 patients who underwent LDLT for HCC, immunohistochemical staining of CD34 for VETC, angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), CD3, and CD68, was reviewed with patients ’ clinicopathologic...

Assessment of Frailty Can Guide Decision Making for Utilization of Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy in Patients with Thick Melanoma
AbstractBackgroundSentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is often omitted in selected patients with advanced primary melanoma, although the justification/criteria for omission have been debated.ObjectiveWe sought to determine whether assessment of frailty could serve as an objective marker to guide selection for SLNB in patients with advanced primary melanoma.MethodsPatients presenting with clinical stage IIC (ulcerated,>  4 mm Breslow thickness) cutaneous melanoma from January 1999 through June 2019 were included. Frailty was assessed using the Memorial Sloan Kettering Frailty Index (MSK FI), a composite score o...

Additional Treatment Following Noncurative Endoscopic Resection for Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Comparison of Outcomes between Esophagectomy and Chemoradiotherapy
ConclusionBoth esophagectomy and CRT are safe and effective as additional treatments after noncurative ER in patients with ESCC. Esophagectomy is oncologically safe, whereas a risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality remains. Although the adverse events are acceptable, CRT has a certain degree of risk of disease recurrence. (Source: Annals of Surgical Oncology)
