TITLE: [Foreign body in the esophagus]
PUBDATE: 19940701
A ten year retrospective survey of 346 cases of oesophageal foreign bodies is reported. Although coins were the most frequent foreign bodies in the pediatry group, meat was the most common offender in the material taken as a whole. Rigid oesophagoscopy in general anaesthesia was performed on 312 patients. A foreign body was removed in 281 cases (90%). Only one case of oesophageal cancer was discovered. The risk of iatrogenic perforation of the oesophagus was greatest in old patients who had a lump of meat stuck in the distal third of the oesophagus.

The authors performed local staging of esophageal and rectal cancer (without pathologic correlation) with use of a nonferromagnetic magnetic resonance (MR) endoscope with a 3-cm-long receive-only coil embedded in its tip in 16 patients (eight with esophageal cancer and eight with anorectal cancer). Results with spin-echo sequences were optimal in all cases [corrected].

PUBDATE: 19920301
This study shows that in Myanmar, South-East Asia, the prevalence of oral cancers is a serious fact as they rank fifth among all cancers being known there. On the 70 oral cancer cases reported at the Institute of Dental Medicine, Yangon, the findings stressed that most patients, male or female, came from the metropolitan division (Yangon), had smoking and chewing habits. Also most of these patients came to hospital only at the severe and late stage. It confirms us in our opinion that early diagnosis and prompt treatment are a necessity.

PUBDATE: 19961101
The diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is devastating for patients and family members because of the high morbidity and mortality rates associated with the disease. Regardless of the stages of their illnesses or the treatments they receive, only 3% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive five years or more after diagnosis. Compassionate, knowledgeable, supportive nursing care is necessary throughout all stages of pancreatic cancer. This article provides perioperative nurses with information about the diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

PUBDATE: 19940601
The history of chemotherapy for non-small cell lung carcinoma is one of very slow progress. Consequently, the categories of patients who will ultimately benefit from this modality are still debated. Recent European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer studies show that there is less concern about the importance of platinum as an ingredient of combination regimens or as an adjunct to radiotherapy. The presence of cisplatin is related to better response and survival in patients with locoregional and distant metastatic disease.

TITLE: Management of nonepidermoid cancer of the larynx.
PUBDATE: 19970401
Nonepidermoid cancer of the larynx represents an extremely diverse group of diseases with differing prognoses and rationales of management. With the lack of specificity in symptoms and physical findings, proper and expeditious lesion characterization is therefore dependent on a high index of suspicion by the clinician and accurate consulting histopathology. These neoplasms can be grouped according to cells with secretory, connective tissue, lymphoreticular, or metastatic origins. Based upon this framework, this article discusses the unique aspects of these various diseases that can lead to their diagnosis, along with consideration of management options and prognostic variables.

PUBDATE: 19971201
Cancer chemotherapy is associated with a wide range of vascular toxicities, which may be related to endothelial cell damage by these agents. The authors describe a patient with Hodgkin's disease who developed an atypical aortic dissection while receiving MOPP/ABV chemotherapy (nitrogen mustard, vincristine, procarbazine, prednisone, doxorubicin, bleomycin, and vinblastine). They would place aortic dissection on the list of potential vascular complications associated with antineoplastic agents.

TITLE: The role of chemotherapy in the treatment of small cell lung cancer.
PUBDATE: 19970201
Because small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a systemic malignancy, chemotherapy is the mainstay treatment for patients with all stages of this tumor. Many chemotherapeutic agents have activity against SCLC, and when combined in three- or four-drug regimens, they produce a response in 75% to 90% of patients. Median survival times for patients with limited disease range from 14 to 16 months, and a small proportion may be cured. For extensive stage patients, median survival is usually less than 1 year; 2 year disease-free survival is uncommon. Current research is focusing on ways to increase the dose intensity of chemotherapy delivery.

PUBDATE: 19910601
During the past several years, the indications for limb salvage in musculoskeletal neoplasms have been expanded. As a result, interest in the topic of diagnostic biopsy has been renewed. Post biopsy hematoma formation and the iatrogenic spread of cancer cells has led to universally accepted guidelines for biopsy technique. These include meticulous hemostasis and wound closure. A technique of open biopsy without wound closure in which the biopsy site in a long bone with contained neoplasm remains open and hematoma allowed to drain into the dressings is outlined. A discussion of the theoretical advantages and disadvantages of this technique is presented.

Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 35 and 54. It is estimated that the specialist in obstetrics and gynecology provides health care for more than half of the female population in the United States and should become familiar with both benign and malignant breast conditions. Confronted with the misconception that the disease appears in women "at risk" only and the estimate that one in every nine women born in the United States will develop breast cancer, adequate education, screening, examination, and documentation are essential in the field of breast disease.

TITLE: Structure, function and biological properties of integrin alpha v beta 3 on human melanoma cells.
PUBDATE: 19910501
Human melanoma represents one of the most metastatic cancers in man. The capacity of melanoma cells to invade a variety of tissues and extracellular matrices is, in part, due to their repertoire of adhesion receptors. To this end, human melanoma cells express multiple integrin cell adhesion receptors among these is the vitronectin receptor, alpha v beta 3. This adhesion receptor enables melanoma cells to attach to a wide variety of extracellular matrix components containing the sequence Arg-Gly-Asp. This review will focus on the biosynthetic, biochemical and biological properties of this receptor expressed on the surface of human melanoma cells.

PUBDATE: 19960601
This review summarises the current state of knowledge regarding the risk factors for pancreatic cancer. Of all the factors studied, only smoking is well established. Excessive dietary fat and protein may increase the risk, but this has not been proven conclusively. Fruits and vegetables, on the other hand, may offer a protective effect. The role of coffee remains controversial. There is no concrete evidence that alcohol, tea, occupational exposure, diabetes, gallstones, cholecystectomy or gastrectomy are significantly associated with this tumour. A possible predisposing role for chronic pancreatitis cannot be excluded.

Therefore, it is important for dentists to be knowledgeable about the problems of reimbursement for the oral health care of cancer patients and become involved in the issue of access to oral health care for cancer patients.

PUBDATE: 19970601
Melanoma is likely to become the most important cancer of the 21st century. Health education can improve the prognosis of this cancer. The goal of melanoma education is to reduce the rising incidence and mortality from melanoma. Skin self-examination is an important means of promoting awareness. Marketing the excellent health habit of inspecting our pigmented lesions on Melanoma Monday and several times annually requires teaching the public who is at increased risk, the signs of in situ and early melanoma, and the action to be taken if a suspicious spot is found. A skin scan for melanoma is a splendid health habit for every American.
