ConclusionsBased on this study, achieving LC in truncal STS treated with GTR and RT remains challenging even with IMRT (5-year LC: 78%). While the use of IMRT was more promising for tumors of the chest/abdominal wall with 5-year LC of 84%, it was 69% for those located in the paraspinal subsite, indicating a need for further improvement.

Retrospective, Multicenter Analysis Comparing Conventional with Oncoplastic Breast Conserving Surgery: Oncological and Surgical Outcomes in Women with High-Risk Breast Cancer from the OPBC-01/iTOP2 Study
AbstractIntroductionRecent data suggest that margins ≥2 mm after breast-conserving surgery may improve local control in invasive breast cancer (BC). By allowing large resection volumes, oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery (OBCII; Clough level II/Tübingen 5-6) may achieve better local control than conventional breast conserving surgery (BCS; Tübi ngen 1-2) or oncoplastic breast conservation with low resection volumes (OBCI; Clough level I/Tübingen 3-4).MethodsData from consecutive high-risk BC patients treated in 15 centers from the Oncoplastic Breast Consortium (OPBC) network, between January 2010 and D...

ConclusionsCompared with adjuvant PVC, neoadjuvant HAIC treatment was associated with better survival and fewer recurrences in HCC patients who received R0 resection at the intermediate to advanced stage. These results need to be further validated prospectively. (Source: Annals of Surgical Oncology)

The Politics of Recruiting Dr. R Lee Clark Jr. as the First Permanent Director of The University of Texas MD Anderson Hospital for Cancer Research
AbstractDr. R. Lee Clark Jr. was a man of bold and extraordinary vision. He was truly a surgical oncology leader of the twentieth century. His leadership had a significant impact on the cancer community nationally and internationally. Historically, it is intriguing that Dr. Clark almost did not become President of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, since five other candidates were first offered the position and turned it down, and then Clark himself almost withdrew during the search process because of the political stalemate among the UT Regents to select a candidate. The saga began in 1945, when the Acting Director of MD A...

Neoadjuvant Endocrine Therapy and Delays in Surgery for Ductal Carcinoma in Situ: Implications for the Coronavirus Pandemic
This study sought to determine the impact of NET on the rate of invasive cancer for patients with a diagnosis of DCIS who have a surgical delay compared with those not treated with NET.MethodsUsing the National Cancer Database, the study identified women with hormone receptor-positive (HR+) DCIS. The presence of invasion on final pathology was evaluated after stratifying by receipt of NET and by intervals based on time from diagnosis to surgery ( ≤30, 31–60, 61–90, 91–120, or 121–365 days).ResultsOf 109,990 women identified with HR+ DCIS, 276 (0.3%) underwent NET. The mean duration of NET was 74....

Comparison of Differential Functional Outcomes After Partial Nephrectomy Between Moderate and High Complex Renal Tumor Evaluated with Diethylenetriamine Pentaacetic Acid Scan: A Propensity Score Matched Analysis
ConclusionHigh complex tumors can be treated with PN without significant deterioration in renal function. The postoperative function of the operated kidney was preserved by up to 80% in the long term compared with the preoperative period. However, PN should be selectively performed with caution to avoid the occurrence of postoperative CKD. (Source: Annals of Surgical Oncology)

National Trends in Treatment for Retroperitoneal Soft Tissue Sarcoma: A Modern Appraisal of Variability in Therapeutic Strategies
AbstractBackgroundLittle level 1 evidence exists to guide multimodality treatment in retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcoma (RPS), which may lead to significant variation in therapeutic approaches. This analysis aimed to describe national RPS treatment trends and explore potential variability among low-/high-volume hospitals (LVH/HVHs).Patients and MethodsIn total, 5992 patients who underwent resection for primary RPS were retrospectively identified in the National Cancer Database (2004 –2017). Time trend analyses examined rates of multivisceral resection (MVR), radiation, and chemotherapy use. LVHs were defined as thos...

Association Between Sarcopenia and Survival of Patients with Organ-Confined Renal Cell Carcinoma after Radical Nephrectomy
AbstractBackgroundWe aimed to describe the effect of preoperative sarcopenia on oncologic outcomes of organ-confined renal cell carcinoma (RCC) after radical nephrectomy.Patients and MethodsA total of 632 patients with pT1 –2 RCC who underwent radical nephrectomy between 2004 and 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. From preoperative computerized tomography (CT) scans, skeletal muscle index (SMI) was measured and gender-specific cutoff values at third lumbar vertebra of 52.4 cm2/m2 for men and 38.5 cm2/m2 for women were used to define sarcopenia. Survivals were compared and associations with sarcopenia were analyzed u...
