Background: The extent of standard lymph node dissection (D1, D2, or D3) in gastric cancer patients is still controversial. Several prospective European trials attained contradictory results. A generally increased body mass index (BMI) of the European patients was assumed to be one of the major...
Background: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is being used to treat primary and metastatic liver tumors. The indications, treatment planning, and limitations of hepatic RFA must be defined and refined by surgeons treating hepatic malignancies. Methods: A review of the experience using RFA to treat...
Background: We attempted to define the effect of tumor histotype on local recurrence, distant metastasis, and disease-specific survival in patients with surgically treated primary extremity sarcoma. Methods: A total of 951 patients with primary, localized soft tissue extremity sarcoma were...
Background: Thick (≥4-mm) primary melanomas are believed to be associated with a high incidence of occult distant metastases. The use of sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping and biopsy in the treatment lesions has been questioned. Methods: A retrospective review of a computerized database...
Background: Although desmoplastic melanoma (DM) often presents at a locally advanced stage, nodal metastases are rare. We describe our experience with lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in patients with DM to characterize the biological behavior of these tumors. Methods:...
Background: We analyzed the histological features and DNA flow cytometric results in 34 patients with pheochromocytoma and paragangliomas and attempted correlation with the biological behavior for determination of the malignant potential of these tumors. Methods: DNA analysis was done on a...
Background: Patients have traditionally been considered candidates for sentinel node biopsy (SNBx) only at the time of wide local excision (WLE). We hypothesized that patients with prior WLE may also be staged accurately with SNBx. Methods: Seventy-six patients, including 18 patients from the...
