TITLE: An epidemiologic study of 70 oral cancer cases at the Institute of Dental Medicine, Yangon, Myanmar, 1985-1988.
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: 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.

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.

Oral conditions related to cancer therapy, which are largely preventable, continue to result in considerable morbidity, dysfunction and lost quality of life. 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.

As cancer care moves into the outpatient setting and hospital stays are shortened, patients and their family members are expected to take on tremendous responsibilities in providing their own self-care. At the same time, stress and anxiety about the diagnosis of cancer, the disease itself, and cancer therapy can effect learning. Information processing, learning styles, and learning barriers need to be considered when developing and implementing cancer education programs.

PUBDATE: 19931001
Staging of colorectal cancer has become important with respect to selection of patients for minor surgery, major surgery and adjuvant radio- and chemotherapy. The most important treatment is still surgical, but the prognosis can be improved in some patients with adjuvant treatment, even though it involves more side-effects. Exact staging is necessary in order to avoid overtreatment of some and undertreatment of others. This article critically reviews the staging systems used at present.

PUBDATE: 19921101
Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a sensitive tumor marker following definitive therapy for adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Detectable levels of PSA after radical prostatectomy indicate residual and/or recurrent cancer. Therefore, we were surprised to document recurrent cancer following radical retropubic prostatectomy in a man who had undetectable serum PSA levels. This observation suggests that careful clinical monitoring remains essential after definitive therapy, since rare patients may have recurrent and/or residual carcinoma despite undetectable levels of PSA.

There is no substantial difference in the prognosis of cancer patients after intensive care compared to certain other groups of patients except for the tumor patient with major respiratory problems. Hence, the general refusal of intensive care for cancer patients is not justified. Rather indication for intensive care needs careful examination of several aspects including medical science and ethics. Particular ethical problems arising in intensive care for cancer patients can be reduced by open communication between the medical team and the patient as well as between the medical specialists.

We presented a new method of catheter implantation by puncturing the left axillary artery directly under ultrasound guidance. This method was easy and non-invasive comparing with previous methods. Fifteen patients with advanced cancers were treated with infusion chemotherapy using this method and no severe complication was observed. Therefore, it was considered that our new procedure was beneficial for the management of patients with advanced cancers.

Cardiovascular disease and cancer are two of the leading causes of premature death among American Indians and Alaskan Natives. Although cigarette smoking contributes to these diseases, cigarette smoking behaviors among American Indians and Alaskan Natives have not been well characterized nationally. To better assess the impact of smoking on these populations, CDC analyzed data obtained from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) during 1987-1991. This report summarizes the findings from this study.

The modified Mainz pouch urinary diversion was performed on 5 patients with bladder cancer using the submucosally embedded in situ appendix as a continence mechanism. It proved to be successful on 4 patients showing the complete urinary continence without difficulty in self catheterization. One patient became incontinent and a balloon catheter was retained. Advantages of the appendix stoma in the Mainz pouch are the reduction of the ileal segment to be isolated for creation of the pouch, relative simplicity of the operative technique, and the avoidance of use of foreign bodies such as metal staples or Marlex meshes.

TITLE: How frequent is anesthesia dolorosa following spinal posterior rhizotomy? A retrospective analysis of fifteen patients.
PUBDATE: 19930901
Anesthesia dolorosa has been considered an infrequent complication of spinal posterior rhizotomy. We reviewed the data of all patients who underwent rhizotomy between 1962 and 1972 (15 cases). Thirteen were affected by cancer and 2 by non-neoplastic conditions. Eight developed a typical deafferentation pain (i.e., anesthesia dolorosa) (53%) while 3 who were found to have a brain (frontal 2; parietal 1) metastasis did not. Anesthesia dolorosa developed 1.5-8 months after rhizotomy. We conclude that anesthesia dolorosa following rhizotomy is more frequent than usually stated and that rhizotomy should be restricted to patients with a less than 3-month life expectancy.

This is a case report of an 82-year-old man with squamous cell lung cancer which produced G-CSF. The leukocyte cell count was elevated to 94,400/mm3. The serum G-CSF concentration was also elevated to 351 pg/ml. This is the first report to demonstrate, by application of immunohistochemical staining techniques directly to tumor tissue obtained at autopsy, squamous carcinoma cells which produce G-CSF. The tumor cells were stained with monoclonal anti-G-CSF antibodies.

TITLE: [Value of palpation findings in breast examination]
PUBDATE: 19931101
During a period of 3.5 years 13,214 patients were examined in a specialised breast clinic; 87% of the women had been referred by gynaecologists. 73% of the 160 carcinomas discovered 65% of the 143 fibroadenomas and 32% of the 982 cysts were palpable. Among 2,355 patients with a positive palpation, a carcinoma was found only in 5% of cases, whilst a carcinoma was found in 0.4% of the 10,819 patients with negative palpation. Therefore the use of apparatus in breast diagnosis is highly recommended both to avoid unnecessary surgery and to discover small cancers.
