Immunologic factors such as neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio and platelet-lymphocyte ratio play an important role in predicting the oncologic outcome of patients in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC)....
An 82-year-old male patient presented with a left-sided spontaneous chylothorax. A computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a cystic tumor in the right upper anterior mediastinum and nodules in...
Approximately 20% to 25% of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) have distant organ metastasis at the time of initial diagnosis. The primary tumor location has been suggested as a prognostic factor f...
A laparoscopic approach can be attempted for pathologic T4 (pT4) colon cancer. Our aim was to evaluate the clinico-oncologic outcomes following laparoscopic versus open surgery for right and left-side...
Clinicopathological differences and survival outcomes with first-line therapy in patients with left-sided colon cancer and rectal cancer: Pooled analysis of 2879 patients from AGITG (MAX), COIN, FOCUS2, OPUS, CRYSTAL and COIN-B trials in the ARCAD database.
Patients with left-sided colon tumours have better survival and respond differently to biologics compared with patients with right-sided tumours. Left-sided colon tumours and rectal cancers are often ...
Open versus Laparoscopic Left-sided Hepatectomy (OLLEH) trial Multi-institutional, prospective and randomized trial in patients undergoing left sided hepatectomy through laparoscopic versu...
This prospective clinical study will compare a powered circular stapler to commercial mechanical staplers for performance issues in patients scheduled to undergo colectomy with left-sided ...
One-lung ventilation (OLV) is required for the most thoracic surgery to facilitate surgical visualization by collapsing the lung. The double-lumen tube (DLT) and Uniblocker are the commonl...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the positional stability and quality of lung isolation provided by the EZ-blocker compared to a DLT for both right and left sided thoracic surger...
Two metaanalyses of studies on the prognostic significance of circulating cancer cells in colorectal cancer indicated, that the presence of CTC in the peripheral blood is the negative prog...
A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted HEART ATRIA, a right-sided STOMACH, and a left-sided LIVER, the combination is called dextrocardia with SITUS INVERSUS. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.
Nursing care provided cancer patients. It includes aspects of family functioning through education of both patient and family. The specialty of oncologic nursing focuses on cancer as a major health care problem.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
Devices to be inserted into veins or arteries for the purpose of carrying fluids into or from a peripheral or central vascular location. They may include component parts such as catheters, ports, reservoirs, and valves. They may be left in place temporarily for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
