The ex vivo ablation model reliably created a 5–10 mm perimeter of ablation. In vivo, this zone reduced the need for re-excision for inadequate margins by 91% (10/11). Short-term follow-up suggests that eRFA could reduce re-excision surgery and local recurrence.
The prognostic value of micrometastases detected retrospectively by RT-PCR is significant in AJCC stage II colorectal patients. Studies utilizing RT-PCR performed a more complete nodal analysis when compared to studies using IHC techniques. RT-PCR may also be more specific for the detection of...
Given the rate of surgical complications, especially gastric bleeding and gastric outlet obstruction, there is still an important role for the surgical consultant in the treatment of patients with gastric DLBCL receiving chemotherapy. Gastric perforation, although frequently cited as a...
Lymph node status can be accurately predicted on the basis of pathologic tumor diameter <20 mm, lymphatic invasion (absence), and histological type (differentiated) in patients with submucosal gastric cancer. Less extensive surgery for these patients might be reconsidered after confirmation of...
Percutaneous lung RFA may play a useful role in nonsurgical candidates with colorectal pulmonary metastases. However, the survival benefit of this interventional procedure for patients with a pulmonary metastasis >3 cm was limited.
Differences in SN pathology protocols between hospitals do have a substantial effect on SN findings and subsequent surgical treatment strategies. Whether ultrastaging and, thus, additional surgery can offer better survival remains to be determined.
Patients with colorectal liver metastasis greater than 8 cm and up to 12 cm in size should not be treated differently from those with smaller lesions.
In our hands, the sensitivity and specificity of preoperative ultrasonography to detect lymph node involvement in patients with melanoma are 34% and 87%, respectively. In combination with FNAC, this is 4.7% and 100%, respectively. This yield is insufficient for this technique to be used as a...
We found a higher rate of mutations in the MTHFR gene than in the XRCC1 gene in Korean colorectal cancer patients. Response to FOLFOX was better in the patient group with mutations for MTHFR and worse in the patient group with mutations for XRCC1. However, only the XRCC1 polymorphism was a...
