Liver biopsies are commonly performed in heart transplant candidates to confirm congestive hepatopathy (CH) and to assess the degree of fibrosis. Heterogeneity of fibrosis is frequent in CH, making it difficult to stage fibrosis. In this study, we evaluated the prevalence of heterogeneity of fibrosis and nodular regenerative hyperplasia (NRH) in liver biopsies with CH secondary to heart failure. Fifty liver biopsies with CH secondary to heart failure were reviewed. The fibrosis was scored on trichrome stain...
Purpose Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has a poor prognosis, with a 5-year survival of < 10% because of diffuse symptoms leading to late-stage diagnosis. That survival could increase significantly if localized tumors could be detected early. Therefore, we used multiparametric analysis of blood samples to obtain a novel biomarker signature of early-stage PDAC. The signature was derived from a large patient cohort, including patients with well-defined early-stage (I and II) PDAC. This biomarker signa...
Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy has been increasingly used in the management of early-stage cervical cancer. It appears in guidelines as an alternative option to systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy. The evidence about safety is, however, based mostly on retrospective studies, in which SLN was combined with systematic lymphadenectomy.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common disease found in elderly men and 5α-reductase (5α-R) inhibitors are a commonly used treatment option. 5α-reduced steroids are compounds that play a role in several functions across different organs and systems. In the adult brain, 5α-R accounts for neuroactive steroid production. Whether neuropsychological impairment could be due to dutasteride treatment, a 5α-R inhibitor affecting the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), is still unknown. The aim of o...
The role of gastric resection in treating metastatic gastric adenocarcinoma is controversial. In the present study, we reviewed the short- and long-term outcomes of stage IV patients undergoing surgery.
The term liquid biopsy refers to the analysis of biomarkers in any body fluid, including blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid. In cancer, liquid biopsy testing allows the analysis of tumor-derived DNA, RNA, miRNA and proteins that can be either cell-free or contained in circulating tumor cells (CTC), extracellular vesicles (EVs) or platelets. A number of studies suggest that liquid biopsy testing could have a relevant role in the management of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients at different stages of the dise...
Anterior localization of prostate cancer suspicious MRI lesions in patients undergoing initial and repeat biopsy: Results from 1,161 patients undergoing MRI/ultrasound fusion-guided targeted biopsies.
Based on findings from transrectal ultrasound guided (TRUS) biopsies series, standard sampling of the prostate targets the posterior/peripheral zone. However, a substantial proportion of PCa suspicious MRI PI-RADS ≥3 lesions is located in the anterior segment of the prostate, requiring a deeper placement and targeting of the biopsy needle.
The presence of pelvic lymph node metastases is without doubt the most significant prognostic factor that determines recurrences and survival of women with early-stage cervical cancer. To avoid the underdiagnosis of lymph node metastasis, pelvic lymphadenectomy procedure is routinely performed with radical hysterectomy procedure. However, the pelvic lymphadenectomy procedure may not be necessary in most of these women due to the relatively low incidence of pelvic lymph node metastasis. The removal of large ...
To improve the prognosis of patients with heart failure, risk stratification in their early stage is important. We assessed whether the change in transmitral flow (TMF) velocity pattern during preload augmentation can predict future hemodynamic worsening in early-stage heart failure patients with impaired relaxation TMF pattern.
'Early-stage' nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) refers to stage I and stage II disease, and selected cases of stage IIIA disease where complete tumor resection is feasible. Surgery is the standard treatment for early NSCLC, but the overall 5-year survival remains below 50%. The addition of adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy to surgery improved 5-year survival rates by 5-10%, but no significant therapeutic innovation has been established thereafter. We review recent and ongoing studies looking how immunot...
The effect of endoscopic transpapillary mapping biopsy (MB) on decision-making of surgical indications, selecting surgical procedures, or operative outcomes remains unclear.
The most appropriate treatment for early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. This study compared the association of resection versus ablation with overall survival (OS) in patients with early-stage HCC.
The aim of this study was to analyze the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) volumetric and morphometric characteristics of the infrapatellar fat pad (IFP) and the suprapatellar fat pad (SFP) in normal controls, moderate and end-stage osteoarthritis (OA) patients. Forty-four MRI images of the three groups were collected: a) 17 patients undergoing meniscectomy with Outerbridge score 0 (control group); b) 15 patients undergoing meniscectomy with Outerbridge score 3/4 (moderate OA group); and c) 12 patients under...
Despite improved screening programs, the vast majority of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are diagnosed at an advanced stage. A lack of effective diagnosis methods for preclinical HCC has resulted in a low rate of early detection. Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B10 (AKR1B10) is associated with several cancer types. However, to the best of our knowledge, the diagnostic value of AKR1B10 in early stage HCC is poorly understood. In the current study, the diagnostic performance of serum AKR1B10...
Pelvic lymphadenectomy procedure is included as part of the standard protocol of radical hysterectomy for women with early-stage cervical cancer (Stage IA to IB1). However, an important sequel to lymphadenectomy procedure is the possible occurrence of lymphedema in the lower abdomen and lower extremities. Previous researches also find that women with lymphedema experience many emotional impacts, including depression, anxiety, and adjustment problems. Only approximately 10% of women with clinical stage IB ce...
Research suggests that palliative home care should be integrated early into standard care for end-stage COPD patients. Patients also express the wish to be cared for and to die at home. However, a practice model for early integration of palliative home care (PHC) into standard care for end-stage COPD has not been fully developed.
The prevalence of endometrial cancer among asymptomatic women is rather reduced also due to the absence of a cost-efficient test, as there are no ideal screening examinations for endometrial cancer. Several methods were proposed in medical practice to discover endometrial neoplasia at an early stage, among which: endometrial biopsy, endovaginal ultrasound, targeted biopsy hysteroscopy. This study was made on a group of 38 patients monitored for metrorrhagia in the interval between July 1, 2014-July 1, 2016....
Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and is a diagnostic challenge in its early stages. It often can be misdiagnosed as chronic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, or other common dermatoses. Histologic diagnosis remains the gold standard for MF; however, in many cases repeat biopsies may be needed over time, especially in early patch stages of MF. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a quick and noninvasive diagnostic tool that may be useful to deter...
The standard of care for patients with resected stage I to stage III pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is adjuvant gemcitabine-based chemotherapy. The role of adjuvant treatment in patients with subcentimeter, stage IA PDAC is unknown. The current study evaluated the effect of adjuvant treatment on survival outcomes among patients with American Joint Committee on Cancer/International Union Against Cancer stage IA (T1N0) resected PDAC using the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB).
Transperineal prostate mapping (TTPM) biopsy is an increasingly utilized method of procuring tissue from men with suspected prostate cancer. We sought to report the patient related outcome measures (PROMs) and adverse events in men undergoing this diagnostic test within the PICTURE trial.
Benefits of surgery for early stage non-epithelioid MPM have not been clearly elucidated. This study investigated whether cancer-directed surgery affects overall survival compared to non-surgical therapies for T1-T2N0M0 sarcomatoid or biphasic malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) patients.
Mycobacterial infection(MI) is sometimes diagnosed using CT-guided transthoracic needle biopsy (TNB). However, the exact role of CT-guided TNB in this diagnostic process is not clearly known. The purpose of this study is to analyze the role of CT-guided TNB in patients with MI who present with a focal lung lesion. Of 1233 patients who underwent CT-guided TNB from January 2010 through February 2016 at our institution, patients with a final diagnosis of MI were included for analysis. Clinical characteristics ...
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, the role of Lp(a) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients is not well understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between Lp(a) levels and the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and the severity of coronary artery stenosis (CAS) in patients with stage 3-5 CKD.
Malnutrition is very complex in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and is associated with poor prognosis. This is because hemodynamic changes, hormonal changes, persistent inflammatory reactions, and fluid overloads are more complicated as uremia is worsening. Bio-impedance spectroscopy (BIS) is a useful method to estimate fluid balance (Overhydration/ extracellular water, OH/ECW) and nutritional status (Phase angle, PhA). We aimed to evaluate the volume and nutritional status by BIS and to invest...
Minimally invasive surgery was adopted as an alternative to laparotomy (open surgery) for radical hysterectomy in patients with early-stage cervical cancer before high-quality evidence regarding its effect on survival was available. We sought to determine the effect of minimally invasive surgery on all-cause mortality among women undergoing radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer.
