TITLE: Trocar site tumor recurrence after laparoscopic-assisted colectomy.
PUBDATE: 19950801
As a variety of procedures become technically feasible with laparoscopic techniques, it becomes increasingly important to appropriately select the patients who will benefit from the laparoscopic approach. We report the case of a patient with Dukes C2 colon cancer treated by laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy who subsequently developed an abdominal wall recurrence at a trocar site scar. The case raises some concerns about the use of the laparoscopic technique in the surgical management of colon cancer.

PUBDATE: 20001001
Checkpoints are mechanisms that regulate progression through the cell cycle insuring that each step takes place only once and in the right sequence. Mutations of checkpoint proteins are frequent in all types of cancer as defects in cell cycle control can lead to genetic instability. This review will focus on three major areas of cell cycle transition control, with particular attention to the alterations found in human cancer. These areas include the G1/S transition, where most cancer-related defects occur, the G2/M checkpoint and its activation in response to DNA damage, and the spindle checkpoint.

TITLE: Late relapse of clinical stage I testicular cancer.
PUBDATE: 19951001
PURPOSE: The clinical presentation and treatment of late recurrence (2 or more years after initial management) of testis cancer are defined. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective search was performed to identify patients treated for late relapse at our university from 1979 to 1992 who had initially presented with clinical stage 1 disease. RESULTS: We treated 35 patients with chemotherapy for late relapse. No patient has remained disease-free with chemotherapy alone. Subsequent surgery resulted in 43% of the patients being currently disease-free. CONCLUSIONS: The treatment of late relapse is surgical. Chemotherapy before late relapse for low volume disease does not uniformly prevent late recurrence.

PUBDATE: 19980401
Middle-ear cancer represents 5 to 10% of all ear neoplasms. Risk factors include chronic suppurative pathology of the middle ear and prior irradiation. Most malignant tumors are squamous-cell carcinomas. We report the case of a 51-year-old woman with this process. The ideal treatment is mastoidectomy or pterosectomy followed by radiotherapy. We made a bibliographic review of the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of middle-ear cancer. Five-year survival rates range from 25 to 50% in patients who undergo surgery and radiotherapy.

TITLE: Chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic carcinoma.
PUBDATE: 19970901
The differential diagnosis between pancreatic cancer and chronic pancreatitis is very important as the management and prognosis of these two diseases is different. In most patients with pancreatic disease, the diagnosis can be established but there is a subgroup of patients in whom it is difficult to differentiate between these conditions because the clinical presentation is often similar and currently available diagnostic tests may be unable to distinguish between an inflammatory or neoplastic pancreatic mass. This paper reviews the aetiology, pathology and clinical features of these diseases and discusses the limitations of conventional diagnostic methods and how newer techniques may be of value in the differential diagnosis.

Worthy of mention in this respect is the progress made by the Kiev City Oncological Centre. In choosing a treatment option, it is necessary that etiopathogenic risk factors for development of cancer of the uterine cervix by analyzed and taken account of.

Fever and sweats are common complications of cancer and its treatment. This article reviews potential causes and pathophysiologic mechanisms of fever and sweat. Management recommendations, consisting of primary interventions directed at contributing causes and pathophysiologic mechanisms, and non-specific palliative measures are discussed. Optimal management is contingent on the physician's integration of medical expertise with patient-derived goals of care.

PUBDATE: 19921101
No currently available evidence from breast cancer screening studies provides strong justification for the implementation of screening in elderly females. Because it is an absence of evidence rather than negative evidence which pertains, it is concluded that if screening is introduced it should include both mammography and clinical examination of the breasts because the two complement one another. As well, stringent quality control procedures are required for both modalities. It is possible that clinical examination of the breasts performed by a nurse-examiner will enhance compliance with screening schedules.

We treated a 67-year-old female with hypopharyngeal cancer (T2N0) in the posterior wall, who had a complete response after two cycles of chemotherapy with docetaxel followed by radiation. Five years after this therapy she has had no recurrence and no metastasis, with preserved laryngeal framework and function. Docetaxel is useful for treating early head and neck cancer.

The Turcot syndrome has been defined as the simultaneous presence of multiple polyposis of the colon and a malignant brain tumor. This association is supposed to be genetically transmitted, even though we still do not exactly know whether this occurs in a dominant or recessive way. The case of a 47-year-old man submitted to a right hemicolectomy for cancer and polyposis, following a series of endoscopic polypectomies and, finally, removal of left temporal glioma is here presented.

Cervical carcinoma is one of the most common malignancies diagnosed during pregnancy since about 30% of diagnosed women are in their fertile years. Diagnosis of cervical cancer during pregnancy superimposes ethical dilemmas on the clinical considerations. Both maternal and fetal outcome should be considered when managing such a case. Is it necessary to discontinue the pregnancy? What are the implications of delayed treatment? How does the treatment affect the fetus and newborn? This article reviews the practical aspects of these issues and suggests management proposals.

Infections caused by MRSA in otorhinolaryngology were evaluated in this study. From October 1990 to the end of September 1991, MRSA was detected in one hospitalized patient and 14 outpatients of the otorhinolaryngology department. MRSA was detected in the tonsils of five patients other patients--including four with cancer and other underlying diseases. In two of the four patients with chronic otitis media, otorrhea was stopped by disinfecting external ear toxin. Osteomyelitis of the upper jaw in neonates and infants must be treated in consideration of MRSA, as it is a hospital infection caused by cephem-resistant Staphylococcus.

TITLE: New drugs for small-cell lung cancer.
PUBDATE: 19970901
Better efficacy of chemotherapy for small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) has not been convincingly demonstrated despite many investigations examining increased drug delivery and enhancement of drug diversity. Improvements in the median- and long-term survival of patients with limited SCLC have been shown, but this change is more closely associated with better integration of chemoradiation than with more effective chemotherapy or radiotherapy components. Recently, a number of new active drugs have been identified for treating patients with SCLC. These drugs include the taxanes, the camptothecins, and gemcitabine. Determining the role of each new agent will require carefully designed and conducted trials like those now in progress.

PUBDATE: 19910401
In 16 of 191 patients the initial attempt to place a double-pigtail internal ureteric stent by conventional methods was unsuccessful. These patients had cancers of the rectum (nine patients), bladder (two patients), vagina (one patient), cervix (one patient) or spermatic cord (one patient) or radiation strictures (two patients). When a guide wire could be advanced beyond the stricture, placement of a small angiographic catheter for 7 to 10 days allowed delayed placement of the stent in all but one case.
