Novel implications of combined arterial resection for locally advanced pancreatic cancer in the era of newer chemo-regimens
In this study, we assessed the prognostic efficacy and feasibility of combined arterial resection (AR) for locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC), and aimed to identify significant prognostic factors for patients who underwent combined AR.MethodsBetween 1981 and 2018, 733 consecutive patients who underwent pancreatic surgery for PC were identified. The 730 cases with detailed information were enrolled in the analysis.ResultsAmong 730 resected PC patients, 44 (6%) underwent AR including 21 hepatic (48%), 12 celiac (27%), five splenic (12%), four superior mesenteric (9%), and two other arteries (4%). The combined AR surge...

Autologous fat transfer after breast cancer surgery: An exact-matching study on the long-term oncological safety
ConclusionAFT does not increase breast cancer recurrence, with the possible exception of late LRRs for Luminal A patients, but further clinical and preclinical data are required to better clarify this data. The use of AFT should not be discouraged. (Source: European Journal of Surgical Oncology (EJSO))

Revision rate of reconstructions in surgically treated diaphyseal metastases of bone
DiscussionWe would advocate for early intervention in patients with metastatic bone disease affecting the femur rather that watchful waiting with the risk for fracture and the need for urgent intervention. However, this choice must be balanced against the underlying risk of surgical intervention in a potentially fragile population with often limited prognoses.

Possible dose dependent effect of perioperative dexamethasone and laparoscopic surgery on the postoperative systemic inflammatory response and complications following surgery for colon cancer
This study examined the impact of different doses of dexamethasone, given to reduce postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) after elective colonic resection for cancer, on the postoperative Glasgow Prognostic Score (poGPS) and morbidity.MethodsPatients from a single centre were included if they underwent potentially curative resection of colonic cancer from 2008 to 2017 (n = 480). Patients received no dexamethasone (209, 44%), or either 4 mg (166, 35%), or 8 mg (105, 21%), intravenously during anaesthesia, at the discretion of the anaesthetist.

ConclusionThe addition of HIPEC to interval CRS does not negatively impact HRQoL in patients with stage III ovarian cancer who are treated with interval CRS. These HRQoL results, together with the improvement in RFS and OS, support the viability of HIPEC as an important treatment option in this patient population.ClinicalTrials.gov numberNCT00426257.EudraCT number2006-003466-34.

Partial nephrectomy versus ablative therapies for cT1a renal masses: A Systematic Review and meta-analysis
ConclusionCompared to PN, ablation may have a significantly lower OS and higher local recurrence rates in selected patients, while CSS and DFS were comparable between the two treatments. On the other hand, ablation had a significantly decreased risk of perioperative complication and the potential advantage of long-term renal function preservation. More large randomized controlled trials are needed further to enhance the evidence of ablation in patients with small renal tumors. We believe that ablation is an attractive addition to the urologist's treatment options for small renal masses. (Source: European Journal of Surgical Oncology (EJSO))
