PUBDATE: 19841001
Split-thickness skin graft reconstruction following intraoral cancer surgery maintains functional mobility within the oral cavity and gives excellent support for the final intraoral rehabilitative prosthesis. We describe the use of a dental material, called tissue conditioner, for skin graft immobilization as an alternative to the usual gauze bolus and thermoplastic materials following surgery in various intraoral anatomic sites.

TITLE: Breast carcinoma: pattern of metastasis at autopsy.
PUBDATE: 19830701
Breast cancer is known to metastasize to all organs of the human body, and its manifestations are protean. It is almost impossible to predict which organ system will be invaded. Since 1950, there are seven autopsy series of patients with breast carcinoma published in the English literature. All data came from American hospitals (total of 2,147 patients), and each report studied more than 100 patients with breast cancer. The reported incidence of involvement of different organ sites are presented in Table I. Although the data came from different institutions and spanned over 35 years (1943-1977), the findings regarding metastatic involvement of specific organs are fairly similar.

TITLE: [Histopathological evaluation of minute stomach cancer]
PUBDATE: 19830801
We histologically examined 17 lesions from minute gastric cancer (less than 5 mm in diameter). Flat or IIb type was frequently seen in minute cancer (47%); the depressed type was predominant in ordinary early gastric cancer (72%). Differentiated adenocarcinoma was noted more often in minute cancer (88%) than in ordinary early gastric cancer (61%) or advanced cancer (45%). Differentiated type minute cancer was frequently associated with severe atrophic gastritis (93%) and intestinal metaplasia (73%). There was no evidence for the preexistence of chronic peptic ulcer, because no fibrosis was present in the gastric wall beneath the minute cancerous lesions.

TITLE: Convulsive syndrome induced by the intracerebroventricular injection of alpha-difluoromethylornithine in rats.
PUBDATE: 19850301
In adult rats, the intracerebroventricular injection of alpha-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO), a polyamine antimetabolite which specifically inhibits ornithine-decarboxylase, induces a typical convulsive syndrome (ED50 = 100 micrograms/rat) and death (LD50 = 300 micrograms/rat). Histological lesions are seen only with the highest doses and are essentially restricted to the Ammon's horn neurones. Since DFMO is currently undergoing clinical trials for use in cancer chemotherapy, including brain tumours, its CNS toxicity should be carefully considered.

TITLE: Activities of serum acid ribonuclease in patients with malignant neoplasms or with renal failure.
PUBDATE: 19831101
The activities of serum acid ribonuclease (RNase) were determined in patients with malignant neoplasm or with renal failure. The levels were markedly increased in myelogenous leukemia and renal failure, and only slightly increased in solid cancers, lymphoid malignancies and multiple myeloma. These increases correlated significantly with serum LDH activity in myelogenous leukemia and with creatinine levels in other malignancies or renal failure. The acid RNase content of granulocytes was 22.7-fold higher than that of lymphocytes. The increase of serum acid RNase may suggest an increased granulocyte destruction in myelogenous leukemia and a reduced glomerular filtration in other malignant neoplasms and renal failure.

TITLE: Cancer pain relief using chronic morphine infusion. Early experience with a programmable implanted drug pump.
PUBDATE: 19840801
Fourteen patients were implanted with drug pumps to provide chronic epidural or intrathecal morphine to relieve pain due to cancer. A new programmable pump was used in seven of the patients and a constant infusion device was used in the other seven patients. Results, judged by subjective pain reports (on a 0 to 10 scale), decrease in oral narcotics, and change in activity level, were excellent in eight patients, good in five patients, and poor in one patient. The programmable device has the obvious advantage of being able to vary dose according to patient need and requires less frequent refilling. Four programmable pump failures occurred, two requiring replacement.

A national survey of cancer mortality in the People's Republic of China during 1973--75 revealed concurrent geographic variation for cancers of the uterine cervix and penis, including clustering of both tumors in central parts of the country. The findings are consistent with recent reports from other countries that the cancers tend to aggregate in spouses and with the hypothesis of an etiologic factor in common.

PUBDATE: 19840301
A 56-year-old female presented with chief complaints of epigastric discomfort and jaundice. Various examinations led to a differential diagnosis of carcinoma of she pancreas vs. malignant lymphoma. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy achieved a 50% reduction of the tumor mass and the disappearance of her jaundice. The patient survived for twenty-seven months following initial presentation. On post-mortem examination, she was found to have had carcinoma of the head of the pancreas. We studied the relationship between chemotherapy and the survival time in histologically diagnosed, unresectable pancreatic cancer at this hospital over the last ten years.

PUBDATE: 19820301
Synchronous or metachronous carcinoma of the larynx and of the lung were seen in seven patients between 1971 and 1977 at the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec. The pulmonary lesion was either missed completely or misdiagnosed. Laryngeal tumours were curable but only two of the pulmonary tumours were treated successfully. The primary nature of the pulmonary lesion may be established by careful examination of the bronchial mucosa. Hemoptysis must always be regarded as a sign of pulmonary cancer unless proven otherwise; hoarseness must not be bluntly attributed to invasion of the laryngeal nerve by lung cancer because a small primary lesion of the vocal cords may exist. Possible pulmonary metastases from any respiratory tract cancer must be carefully diagnosed since curative resection of primary lung lesions is possible.

TITLE: Combined functional oral rehabilitation after radical cancer surgery.
PUBDATE: 19850801
Formerly, patients requiring extensive reconstruction of the oral cavity and oropharynx after radical, ablative oncologic surgery faced the unhappy prospect of lengthy, multistaged repair to enjoy acceptable cosmesis and a functional oral cavity. The advent of the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap has made soft-tissue, single-stage closure of large oral cavity and oropharyngeal defects a reality. Unfortunately and frequently, restoration of mucocutaneous continuity of the mouth does not result in acceptable function. Advances in the materials and design of prostheses suggested the combination of myocutaneous flap reconstruction and functional, prosthetic restoration as a method of returning the patient with head and neck cancer to a state of acceptable function and appearance soon after major resection.

TITLE: The imaging of small experimental murine tumors grown in the subrenal capsule using monoclonal antibodies.
PUBDATE: 19840801
The ability of a "tumor-specific', monoclonal antibody (OX7) and a subclass-matched, non-specific, control antibody (anti HRP) to localize in and image small (20-60 mg) murine lymphomas growing in the subrenal capsule of mice was tested. Due to the small tumor size, and its visceral location, the subrenal site of tumor growth represents a model of metastases which may be more clinically relevant to human cancer. The in vivo and in vitro quantitative data (as well as the gamma camera images) support the feasibility of the concept of using monoclonal antibodies for metastatic tumor detection and treatment.

Collaboration between physicians and nurses is particularly important in research studies involving such innovative treatment methods as intraperitoneal chemotherapy. In addition to assistance in the design of protocols, the nursing staff is responsible for setting up standards of care, management of dialysis treatments, and patient education and emotional support. Evaluation of complications and side effects of treatment as well as documentation of this information are essential nursing responsibilities. Finally, the possible contribution of the nurse to research, in terms of evaluation of guidelines, treatment effects, and patient education tools, is gaining recognition. Most important, by working together, nurses and physicians can make greater progress toward improving the quality of care--as well as the quality of life--of the cancer patient.

A prolonged cure of extensive primary and recurrent cancers of the skin by cryosurgery is reported. The patient had involvement of approximately 95 cm2 of her face with carcinomas, primarily of basal-cell type, which had been refractory to all previous x-ray and conventional surgical therapies rendered during a 6-year span. Aggressive cryosurgery utilizing six systematically designed "overlapping fields" of ice blocks was rendered to this entire area during a 1-month period as office surgical procedures under local anesthesia.

PUBDATE: 19851201
Four hundred fifteen patients with breast cancer who were between 25 and 59 years old were interviewed. They were identified through a breast cancer screening program conducted by the Tianjin Cancer Institute during 1977-80. Controls were women who participated in the screening program but were free of breast cancer. The study confirmed early menarche, late age at first birth, and late menopause as major risk factors for breast cancer. Total duration of lactation was significantly associated with a reduction in its risk among parous women, but this was explained by higher parity among controls. No significant differences were observed between patients and controls in the amount of exposure to chest radiographs or use of hormones.

This article reviews the experience of The Princess Margaret Hospital in the management of squamous cell carcinoma of the soft palate and uvula. Between 1970 and 1979, 70 patients with this diagnosis received primary radiation therapy. The overall five year survival is 43%. The primary tumor was controlled in 80% by radiation. Advanced local (T3) and nodal (N2/3) disease proved difficult to control with radiation alone. The development of second malignancies in patients cured of their primary cancer remains a distressing problem.
