Mucinous appendiceal neoplasms: classification, imaging, and HIPEC.

Summary of "Mucinous appendiceal neoplasms: classification, imaging, and HIPEC."

Recent advances, specifically cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS/HIPEC), offer advantages compared to the traditional therapeutic approach of systemic chemotherapy in the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis from mucinous appendiceal neoplasms (MAN). This review provides an up-to-date, comprehensive summary of the histologic classification of MAN, reviews common imaging findings of mucoceles and pseudomyxoma peritonei, and describes the radiologist's role in the multidisciplinary care team in quantifying disease and in helping select patients for definitive surgery.

Review: Pathology and Its Clinical Relevance of Mucinous Appendiceal Neoplasms and Pseudomyxoma Peritonei.

Until recently, many classifications existed for the terminology and histopathologic classification of appendiceal mucinous neoplasms, mucinous appendiceal adenocarcinomas, and pseudomyxoma peritonei ...

Outcomes from cytoreduction and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy for appendiceal epithelial neoplasms.

Appendiceal epithelial neoplasms are rare cancers. Management of peritoneal disease from appendiceal neoplasms has historically been with debulking surgery. In recent decades, the advent of cytoreduct...

Evaluation of appendiceal mucinous neoplasms with a new classification system and literature review.

Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms constitute a diagnostic spectrum ranging from adenoma to mucinous adenocarcinoma. To date, many classification systems have been proposed to reflect the histomorphologic...

Unusual case of intraluminal cecal recurrence of a low grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (LAMN)-Case report and brief literature review.

Appendiceal mucinous neoplasms exhibit a wide spectrum of clinical behavior, ranging from neoplasms which are relatively slow-growing but with considerable risk for recurrence and eventual death and t...

Appendiceal neurofibroma with low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm in neurofibromatosis type 1 patient: A case report.

Neurofibromas are a characteristic of the autosomal dominant disorder Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), also known as von Recklinghausen's disease. Appendiceal neurofibromas are extremely rare, and low-...

Clinical Analysis of HIPEC for T4 Colorectal Cancer After Surgery

This multicentric study aims to determine if hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) will help to prevent the development of peritoneal carcinomatosis in addition to the standard...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the APPENDIX.

Neoplasms containing cyst-like formations or producing mucin or serum.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A condition characterized by poorly-circumscribed gelatinous masses filled with malignant mucin-secreting cells. Forty-five percent of pseudomyxomas arise from the ovary, usually in a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma (CYSTADENOCARCINOMA, MUCINOUS), which has prognostic significance. Pseudomyxoma peritonei must be differentiated from mucinous spillage into the peritoneum by a benign mucocele of the appendix. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.
