Total Lower Lip Recontruction by Bilateral Fujimori Technique—a case report
ConclusionBilateral Fujimori one-stage flaps can be used in cases of squamous cell carcinomas involving most of the lower lip, including the commissures of the mouth. A limitation of the method is an eventual lack of local tissue when preparing the flap. (Source: International Journal of Surgery Case Reports)

Cancer incidence and mortality after heart transplantation - A population-based national cohort study.
CONCLUSIONS: Both cancer incidence and mortality are remarkably increased after heart transplantation, with the relative incidence most elevated for SCC, lip and other oral cancers, and for NHL. PMID: 30821595 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Acta Oncologica)

Cancer incidence in the Agricultural Health Study after 20 years of follow-up
ConclusionsAlthough an overall deficit in cancer was observed, there were notable exceptions, including newly observed excesses for AML, thyroid, testicular, and peritoneal cancers. Furthermore, endotoxin exposure may, in part, account for observed lung cancer incidence deficits. Cancer incidence patterns in the AHS suggest farm exposures ’ relevance to cancer etiology.

The stem cell markers expression CD44v6 and podoplanin in lip cancer: clinical significance
This study aimed to analyze the immunoexpression of cancer stem cell markers, CD44v6, and podoplanin in 91 patients with lip squamous cell carcinomas (LSCC). The immunostaining of podoplanin and CD44v6 was evaluated in ten high-power fields ( × 400 magnification) at the invasive front of LSCC, using a semi-quantitative score method. Chi-square test or Fisher’s exact test was used to verify the association of podoplanin and CD44v6 expressions with clinicopathologic variables. Spearman’s correlation test was used to analyze the corr elation between the two antibodies in lip cancer. Disease-free survival probabilities ...

The prognostic value of CXCR4, α-SMA and WASL in upper lip basal cell carcinomas.
Authors: Sălan AI, Mărăşescu PC, Camen A, Ciucă EM, Matei M, Florescu AM, Pădureanu V, Mărgăritescu C Abstract Lip cancers account for 10-12% of the total head and neck cancers and, although squamous cell carcinoma is by far the most common lower lip cancer, the basal cell carcinoma (BCC) seems to be more common for the upper lip. Most BCCs have a clinically indolent behavior, but there are also local aggressive and∕or metastatic cases, with the incidence of such cases being estimated at about 1-10% of all cases of BCC. Many of the molecular mechanisms underlying this aggression are still unknown...

Lower lip squamous cell carcinoma: a vietnamese case report of surgical treatment with reconstruction by local flap
ConclusionTreatment with tumor excision, lymph node dissection and reconstruction by local flap is primary treatment for patients with lower lip cancer. Choice of reconstruction method depends on various factors, whereas V-Y advancement flap presents dominant advantage in lower lip cancer treatment.

Characteristics of non ‐melanoma skin cancers of the cutaneous perioral and vermilion lip treated by Mohs micrographic surgery
ConclusionBasal cell carcinoma is more commonly encountered on the cutaneous lip, whereas SCC is more common on the vermilion lip. Within the vermilion lip, BCC favours the upper lip, while SCC favours the lower lip. Within the cutaneous perioral region, both BCC and SCC favour the upper cutaneous tissue. Early stage lip cancers are curable by Mohs micrographic surgery with rare recurrences. (Source: Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology)

Incidence of first and second primary cancers diagnosed among people with HIV, 1985–2013: a population-based, registry linkage study
Publication date: Available online 21 September 2018Source: The Lancet HIVAuthor(s): Nancy A Hessol, Hannah Whittemore, Eric Vittinghoff, Ling C Hsu, Danning Ma, Susan Scheer, Sandra K SchwarczSummaryBackgroundCancer survivors are at increased risk for subsequent primary cancers. People living with HIV are at increased risk for AIDS-defining and non-AIDS-defining cancers, but little is known about their risk of first versus second primary cancers. We identified first and second primary cancers that occurred in above population expected numbers among people diagnosed with HIV in San Francisco, and compared first and second ...

Perforator based V-Y flaps: Versatility in upper lip reconstruction
Aim: The upper lip is a unique unit of the face which is formed of three subunits itself. Upper lip cancer is one of the commonest cancers plastic surgeon have to deal with.

Expression of cancer stem cell markers CD44, ALDH1 and p75NTR in actinic cheilitis and lip cancer
ConclusionsCSC markers are expressed in potentially malignant and malignant lesions of the lip. Their expressions were invariable between AC and LSCC and unrelated to p53. p75NTR expression increased with the worsening of epithelial dysplasia grade.
