Pilot of an International Collaboration to Build Capacity to Provide Gynecologic Oncology Surgery in Botswana.

Gynecologic malignancies are the leading cause of cancer death among women in Botswana. Twenty-five percent of cervical cancers present at a stage that could be surgically cured; however, there are no gynecologic oncologists to provide radical surgeries. A sustainable model for delivery of advanced surgery is essential to advance treatment for gynecologic malignancies.

Quality of Life and Sexual Functioning After Vulvar Reconstruction With the Lotus Petal Flap.

Resection of (pre) malignant lesions in the vulvoperineal area may result in large defects that cannot be closed primarily. The lotus petal flap technique is widely used for reconstruction. The aim of this study was to evaluate both quality of life (QoL) and sexual functioning of patients who underwent the lotus petal flap procedure, because no data are available on this topic.

Radical Surgery in Advanced Cervical Cancer Patients Receiving Bevacizumab-Containing Chemotherapy: A "Real Life Experience".

Platinum-based chemotherapy plus bevacizumab is the new standard of care in stage IVB cervical cancer (CC) patients. In this new scenario, radical surgery could be offered in selected cases with an optimal clinical response. Potential surgical complications related to previous bevacizumab treatment have never been described before in this type of setting.

Assessment of Parametrial Involvement in Early Stages Cervical Cancer With Preoperative Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

The objective of this study was to develop a predictive model for parametrial involvement (PMI) and to identify low-risk group of PMI in early stages of cervical cancer based on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) parameters.

Prophylactic Extended-Field Irradiation for Patients With Cervical Cancer Treated With Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy: A Propensity-Score Matching Analysis.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of prophylactic extended-field radiation therapy (RT) for cervical cancer patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT).

September Letter from the Editor.

Endometriosis-Associated Ovarian Cancer: Population Characteristics and Prognosis.

The aim of this study was to analyze and compare the clinicopathologic features and prognosis of clear cell ovarian carcinoma (CCOC) and endometrioid ovarian carcinoma (EOC) associated or not with endometriosis.

Chemotherapy as Adjuvant Treatment for Early Stage Endometrial Cancer With High Intermediate Risk Factors.

The aim of this study was to explore the role of chemotherapy as adjuvant treatment for early-stage endometrial cancer (EC) with high-intermediate-risk (HIR) factors.

Do the Residual Lung Lesions Threaten Gestational Trophoblastic Neoplasia Patients?

Although most gestational trophoblastic neoplasias (GTN) are sensitive to chemotherapy, the treatment strategy of patients who achieve normal β-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) after the completion of treatment but with residual lung lesions is undefined, let alone whether residual lung lesions threaten GTN patients with acceptable recurrent risk factors.

Vaginal Yolk Sac Tumors: Our Experiences and Results: Erratum.

The Selection of Time Interval Between Surgery and Adjuvant Therapy in Early Stage Cervical Cancer.

The optimal interval between surgery and adjuvant treatment has not yet been found in cervical cancer. And whether patients with different FIGO stage should choose different interval is unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether interval has a different effect on oncologic outcome for patients with different tumor stages.

The BRCA1 Methylation and PD-L1 Expression in Sporadic Ovarian Cancer.

This study aimed to assess the relationship between BRCA1 gene methylation, PD-L1 protein expression, and the clinicopathologic features of sporadic ovarian cancer (OC).

Response to Combination Chemotherapy With Paclitaxel/Ifosfamide/Platinum Versus Paclitaxel/Platinum for Patients With Metastatic, Recurrent, or Persistent Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix: A Retrospective Analysis.

Paclitaxel/ifosfamide/cisplatin triplet has shown a higher response rate than paclitaxel/cisplatin doublet, but the toxicity profile hindered the use of the triplet regimen. In this study, we adjusted the dosage of the triplet regimen and introduced carboplatin in cisplatin-intolerable patients. We tested the efficacy and toxicity of the modified triplet regimen in patients with recurrent or persistent cervical cancer.

Changes in the Management and Prognosis of Ovarian Cancer Due to the New FIGO and WHO Classifications: A Case Series Observational Descriptive Study. Seven Years of Follow-up.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers. In recent years, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) classifications were revised. We compared the major changes between the classifications and examined the effects on the therapy and prognosis of the ovarian, fallopian tubes, and peritoneum cancer in our series according to both classifications.

Trends and Outcomes of Venous Thromboembolism in Hospitalized Patients With Ovarian Cancer: Results From Nationwide Inpatient Sample Database 2003 to 2011.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in hospitalized patients with malignancy. Nationwide Inpatient Sample database was analyzed to determine the trends in the rate of hospitalization and mortality from VTE in hospitalized ovarian cancer patients and assess its economic impact and resource utilization.

Undifferentiated Endometrial Carcinomas: Clinicopathologic Characteristics and Treatment Outcomes.

Undifferentiated endometrial carcinoma (UEC) represents a recently recognized and rare diagnosis that is commonly misclassified on histopathologic evaluation. These cancers account for less than 10% of carefully reviewed series of endometrial cancers from academic medical centers. We reviewed a single-institutional experience with the management of UEC focusing on clinicopathologic characteristics and treatment outcomes.

Predictors of Unplanned Reoperation for Ovarian Cancer Patients From the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Database.

The aim of this study was to determine preoperative risk factors associated with unplanned reoperation within 30 days for patients undergoing major surgery for primary ovarian cancer using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database.

Use of a Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy Algorithm in a South African Population of Patients With Cervical Cancer and High Prevalence of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection.

Cervical cancer is common in resource-poor settings with high prevalence of tuberculosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. There are no data regarding the sentinel lymph node (SLN) algorithm in these high-risk cancer populations. Our objectives were to establish the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the SLN algorithm in cervical cancer and to compare the detection rate of indocyanine green (ICG) versus blue dye...

Use of Aggressive Surveillance for Locoregional Endometrial Cancer After Local Therapy.

Current guidelines do not recommend routine surveillance imaging as part of follow-up care for patients treated for locoregional endometrial carcinoma. This study seeks to determine the potential benefit of routine surveillance imaging by evaluating outcomes of patients whose recurrences were detected on routine surveillance compared to those whose recurrences were identified after presenting with symptoms.

Comparative Use of Napsin A and Glypican 3 to Distinguish Endometrial Clear Cell from Serous and Endometrioid Carcinomas.

Diagnosis of endometrial clear cell carcinomas is difficult owing to the low reproducibility of histological cell type in high-grade endometrial cancers. Recently, immunoreactivity for napsin A and glypican 3 has been reported in clear cell cancers. We sought to evaluate the use of napsin A and glypican 3 staining to distinguish clear cell carcinoma from other high-grade endometrial cancers.
