PUBDATE: 19851201
The results of a study on 30 patients with ear, nose and throat cancers are discussed; a comparison of clinical, ultrasound and histological findings for the preoperatory evaluation of the cervical lymph nodes has been carried out. Ultrasound technique is an excellent method of investigation for the staging "N" of such neoplasms; its contribution is very important for the following therapeutic program.

TITLE: Immunodiagnosis of colorectal cancer: clinical evaluation of Tennessee antigen (Tenagen).
PUBDATE: 19831101
Blood samples from 172 consecutive patients undergoing complete colon investigations to exclude colorectal cancer (CC) were examined for levels of Tennessee antigen, i.e., Tenagen (Tg), and carcinoembryonic antigen. Patients included 48 with CC, 34 with adenomatous polyps, 14 with colitis, and 76 with no organic mucosal disease. All patients were investigated by the one clinical and histopathology department. Laboratory estimations were performed blindly. Although there were some statistically significant differences among average values, the degree of overlap among the groups of patients precludes the practical application of Tg in the diagnosis of CC.

PUBDATE: 19870901
The diagnostic approach in a patient with lung cancer should be oriented according to the mode of presentation of the disease. The first step includes history and clinical examination of the patient, and frontal and lateral chest X-ray, before histological typing of the tumor. The various diagnostic methods are selected according to localization of the mass in the thorax, and staging procedures are determined by the type of the tumor and the possible therapies available. The complexity of the problems surrounding patients with lung cancer mean that the general practitioner should seek the opinion of the chest specialist early rather than late in the pretherapeutic evaluation.

TITLE: [Cancer and pregnancy]
PUBDATE: 19840101
During the last decades, our ideas on the cancer-pregnancy association have been radically altered. Induced abortion, which has long been considered a prerequisite to successful treatment of cancer in such cases, is now performed only if requested by a fully informed mother or if embryotoxic chemotherapy is required. Many authors disagree that pregnancy has detrimental effects on cancer and believe that this only applies to breast cancers with axillary lymph mode involvement. Epidemiologists have shown that obstetrical factors are closely related to the risks of breast, endometrial and ovarian cancers. In some cancers, particularly in children and young adults, cure cannot be considered complete it has been obtained at the cost of infertility. To preserve fertility without reducing the prospects of cure is one of the major objectives of treatment in young cancerous patients.

PUBDATE: 19850201
Transection of the temporal branch of the facial nerve results in paralysis of the frontalis muscle with subsequent inability to wrinkle the forehead. In addition there is ptosis of the eyebrow with upper visual field defects. The intent of this article is to outline an orderly, rational approach to the management of such injuries based on our experience with seven patients whose nerve was damaged during Mohs surgery for cancer ablation. Repair options include various combinations of direct brow-plasty, indirect temporal or coronal browlifts, and adjunctive upper lid blepharoplasty.

PUBDATE: 19871101
A variety of new agents is available for the hormonal treatment of prostatic cancer. None of these agents has shown itself to be superior to bilateral orchiectomy, but their individual side effects profiles may make one more appealing than another. Total androgen ablation may offer a slight survival advantage over partial androgen ablation, but this must be weighed in terms of increased side effects and overall cost. Hormonal therapy remains an effective palliative but not curative means of treating advanced prostatic cancer.

PUBDATE: 19870601
One hundred and seven patients (57 patients with ulcerative colitis and 50 controls) were investigated for in vitro tetraploidy (IVT) in dermal fibroblast monolayer cultures. There was no difference in incidence of IVT between patients with ulcerative colitis and controls. We advance the hypothesis that the genetic background of the colorectal cancer type found in ulcerative colitis differs from that found in the colon cancer syndromes and in non-hereditary colorectal cancers. Colorectal cancer in ulcerative colitis is probably only dependent on the degree of inflammatory lesions of the colonic mucosa.

Animal and epidemiologic studies have raised hopes that effective chemoprevention of colorectal cancer in very high-risk patients may be possible in the future, but at present, the only established effective way to prevent colorectal cancer in very high-risk patients is colectomy. Advances in surgical techniques, improvements in stomal appliances, and medical advances in dealing with complications of colorectal surgery (such as impotence) have contributed to substantial improvements in the quality of life of patients who have had prophylactic colectomies.

Significantly elevated risk among those with family history was found only for breast cancer (observed 3, expected 0.82).

PUBDATE: 19890301
A group of 26 patients who were operated upon for idiopathic priapism between 1972 and 1986 were classified according to the date on which they attended hospital. During the same 15-year period 150 patients with penile cancer were treated and they served as controls. The data were analysed for circannual rhythmicity (365.25 days = 360 degrees and 0 degrees = 22 December. This revealed a significant circannual rhythmicity in the occurrence of idiopathic priapism, with the acrophase located on 2 August. There was a significantly higher incidence of idiopathic priapism between April and September.

The 1980 National Center for Health Statistics life tables for the U.S. black and white populations reveal a difference in life expectancy of 7 years between black and white males and 6 years between black and white females. Using cause-substituted life tables, we show that a number of causes of death contribute to the difference. The largest contributors are cardiovascular disease for both sexes and homicide and cancer for males.

This paper presents two advances in the evaluation of swallowing function which better define the swallowing processes in the head and neck cancer patient. Videofluoroscopy, improved by computer-assisted image analysis, provides more accurate information regarding oral and pharyngeal movement of structures. Radionuclide scintigraphy, a complementary technique, quantitates bolus flow (transit times) and the degree of aspiration. Several cases demonstrate the advantages of the methods and their usefulness in evaluating the effects of cancer treatment. The improved techniques also provide opportunity for designing new strategies of medical and surgical rehabilitation.

A 40-year-old male with advanced penile cancer, whose left inguinal node was ulcerated at the time of initial presentation, underwent multimodal therapy. Four cycles of chemotherapy were given from September 20, 1984 to February 8, 1985. Partial penectomy and left ilioinguinal lymphadenectomy with removal of left groin ejaculation were performed on February 20, 1985, followed by right ilioinguinal lymphadenectomy on March 20, 1985. The skin defect of the left groin was covered with tensor fascia lata myocutaneous flap. The patient is alive with no evidence of disease 30 months after the surgery.

PUBDATE: 19850601
Radioimmunoassays were employed to determine somatotrophin (STH) and somatostatin (SS) levels in patients with different types of tumors. In all patients with solid tumors and in 19 out of 25 patients with lympoblastoses SS concentration was elevated and ranged from 15 to 70 pg/ml. STH level in all cancer patients, with few exceptions, before and during treatment was within normal varying from 0.5 to 6 ng/ml. No distinct correlation between STH and SS levels was found. Proceeding from an analysis of the results obtained it is to be assumed that a study of SS behavior in cancer patients may hold promise in terms of the diagnosis and assessment of the efficacy of cancer therapy.

PUBDATE: 19850901
The report analyses the comparative efficacy of three different tumour markers (CEA, GICA and TPA) in providing indications for the postoperative monitoring of patients treated for cancer of the digestive tract. Assessment of effectiveness of chemotherapy produced different results according to the site of the tumour (stomach, colon or pancreas). In the case of cancers of the pancreatic head, the influence of jaundice on the markers was also evaluated, to discover which marker provided most information on the tumour investigated.
