Abdominal NeoplasmsPancreatic Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).Neoplasms: New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.Neoplasms, Cystic, Mucinous, and Serous: Neoplasms containing cyst-like formations or producing mucin or serum.Skin Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the SKIN.Neoplasms, Multiple Primary: Two or more abnormal growths of tissue occurring simultaneously and presumed to be of separate origin. The neoplasms may be histologically the same or different, and may be found in the same or different sites.Kidney Neoplasms: Tumors or cancers of the KIDNEY.Neoplasms, Second Primary: Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.Adenocarcinoma, Mucinous: An adenocarcinoma producing mucin in significant amounts. (From Dorland, 27th ed)Thyroid Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the THYROID GLAND.Myeloproliferative Disorders: Conditions which cause proliferation of hemopoietically active tissue or of tissue which has embryonic hemopoietic potential. They all involve dysregulation of multipotent MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS, most often caused by a mutation in the JAK2 PROTEIN TYROSINE KINASE.DNA, Neoplasm: DNA present in neoplastic tissue.Lung Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.Parotid Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PAROTID GLAND.Cystadenoma: A benign neoplasm derived from glandular epithelium, in which cystic accumulations of retained secretions are formed. In some instances, considerable portions of the neoplasm, or even the entire mass, may be cystic. (Stedman, 25th ed)Neoplasms, Connective and Soft Tissue: Neoplasms developing from some structure of the connective and subcutaneous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective or soft tissue.Neoplasms, Plasma Cell: Neoplasms associated with a proliferation of a single clone of PLASMA CELLS and characterized by the secretion of PARAPROTEINS.Appendiceal Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the APPENDIX.Liver Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the LIVER.Cystadenoma, Mucinous: A multilocular tumor with mucin secreting epithelium. They are most often found in the ovary, but are also found in the pancreas, appendix, and rarely, retroperitoneal and in the urinary bladder. They are considered to have low-grade malignant potential.Hemangioma: A vascular anomaly due to proliferation of BLOOD VESSELS that forms a tumor-like mass. The common types involve CAPILLARIES and VEINS. It can occur anywhere in the body but is most frequently noticed in the SKIN and SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE. (from Stedman, 27th ed, 2000)Hemangioma, Cavernous: A vascular anomaly that is a collection of tortuous BLOOD VESSELS and connective tissue. This tumor-like mass with the large vascular space is filled with blood and usually appears as a strawberry-like lesion in the subcutaneous areas of the face, extremities, or other regions of the body including the central nervous system.Estrogen Replacement Therapy: The use of hormonal agents with estrogen-like activity in postmenopausal or other estrogen-deficient women to alleviate effects of hormone deficiency, such as vasomotor symptoms, DYSPAREUNIA, and progressive development of OSTEOPOROSIS. This may also include the use of progestational agents in combination therapy.Contraceptives, Oral: Compounds, usually hormonal, taken orally in order to block ovulation and prevent the occurrence of pregnancy. The hormones are generally estrogen or progesterone or both.Bronchogenic Cyst: A usually spherical cyst, arising as an embryonic out-pouching of the foregut or trachea. It is generally found in the mediastinum or lung and is usually asymptomatic unless it becomes infected.Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia: A distinct vascular lesion in the PYLORIC ANTRUM that is characterized by tortuous dilated blood vessels (ectasia) radiating outward from the PYLORUS. The vessel pattern resembles the stripes on the surface of a watermelon. This lesion causes both acute and chronic GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE.Endometriosis: A condition in which functional endometrial tissue is present outside the UTERUS. It is often confined to the PELVIS involving the OVARY, the ligaments, cul-de-sac, and the uterovesical peritoneum.Occult Blood: Chemical, spectroscopic, or microscopic detection of extremely small amounts of blood.Appendix: A worm-like blind tube extension from the CECUM.Abdominal Pain: Sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony in the abdominal region.Colonoscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.PhiladelphiaPhiladelphia Chromosome: An aberrant form of human CHROMOSOME 22 characterized by translocation of the distal end of chromosome 9 from 9q34, to the long arm of chromosome 22 at 22q11. It is present in the bone marrow cells of 80 to 90 per cent of patients with chronic myelocytic leukemia (LEUKEMIA, MYELOGENOUS, CHRONIC, BCR-ABL POSITIVE).Health Level Seven: An American National Standards Institute-accredited organization working on specifications to support development and advancement of clinical and administrative standards for healthcare.Physicians: Individuals licensed to practice medicine.Leukemia, Myelogenous, Chronic, BCR-ABL Positive: Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.Pancreatic Cyst: A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)Cystadenocarcinoma, Mucinous: A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)Cyst Fluid: Liquid material found in epithelial-lined closed cavities or sacs.Cystadenocarcinoma: A malignant neoplasm derived from glandular epithelium, in which cystic accumulations of retained secretions are formed. The neoplastic cells manifest varying degrees of anaplasia and invasiveness, and local extension and metastases occur. Cystadenocarcinomas develop frequently in the ovaries, where pseudomucinous and serous types are recognized. (Stedman, 25th ed)Endosonography: Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.Whole-Body Irradiation: Irradiation of the whole body with ionizing or non-ionizing radiation. It is applicable to humans or animals but not to microorganisms.Obesity, Abdominal: A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.Obesity: A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Cholesterol: The principal sterol of all higher animals, distributed in body tissues, especially the brain and spinal cord, and in animal fats and oils.Dietary Fats: Fats present in food, especially in animal products such as meat, meat products, butter, ghee. They are present in lower amounts in nuts, seeds, and avocados.Adipose Tissue: Specialized connective tissue composed of fat cells (ADIPOCYTES). It is the site of stored FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. In mammals, there are two types of adipose tissue, the WHITE FAT and the BROWN FAT. Their relative distributions vary in different species with most adipose tissue being white.Enoxaparin: Low-molecular-weight fragment of heparin, having a 4-enopyranosuronate sodium structure at the non-reducing end of the chain. It is prepared by depolymerization of the benzylic ester of porcine mucosal heparin. Therapeutically, it is used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)Physician-Patient Relations: The interactions between physician and patient.Research Personnel: Those individuals engaged in research.Questionnaires: Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.Safety: Freedom from exposure to danger and protection from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss. It suggests optimal precautions in the workplace, on the street, in the home, etc., and includes personal safety as well as the safety of property.

Role of dexamethasone dosage in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists for prophylaxis of acute chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. (1/459)

Dexamethasone (20 mg) or its equivalent in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists appears to be the gold-standard dose for antiemetic prophylaxis. Additional to concerns about the use of corticosteroids with respect to enhanced tumour growth or impaired killing of the tumour cells, there is evidence that high-dosage dexamethasone impairs the control of delayed nausea and emesis, whereas lower doses appear more beneficial. To come closer to the most adequate dose, we started a prospective, single-blind, randomized trial investigating additional dosage of 8 or 20 mg dexamethasone to tropisetron (Navoban), a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, in cis-platinum-containing chemotherapy. After an interim analysis of 121 courses of chemotherapy in 69 patients, we have been unable to detect major differences between both treatment alternatives. High-dose dexamethasone (20 mg) had no advantage over medium-dose dexamethasone with respect to objective and subjective parameters of acute and delayed nausea and vomiting. In relation to concerns about the use of corticosteroids in non-haematological cancer chemotherapy, we suggest that 8 mg or its equivalent should be used in combination with 5-HT3 antagonists until further research proves otherwise.  (+info)

Morphological variations in transplanted tumors developed by inoculation of spontaneous mesothelioma cell lines derived from F344 rats. (2/459)

Morphological and immunohistochemical features of the abdominal mesotheliomas that were developed by inoculation of 3 cell lines (MeET-4, -5 and -6) established from spontaneous abdominal mesotheliomas in male F344 rats. Although the original tumors of three cell lines showed signs of epithelioid growth with a predominantly simple papillary pattern, transplanted tumors revealed a variety of morphologic features including epithelioid with glandular structures, sarcomatous, and a mixture of these components. All tumor cells of transplanted tumors were positive for alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA) but almost negative for desmin as were epithelioid cells of the original tumors, and the cell lines were positive for desmin but not for ASMA. These results suggested that mesothelioma in the F344 rat had the potential for wide spectrum differentiation under in vitro conditions. The microenvironmental factors obtained in vivo can modify their potential ability and their morphological aspects. These factors may be related to tumor cell reexpression of ASMA of tumor cells that were masked under in vitro culture conditions.  (+info)

Additional value of whole-body positron emission tomography with fluorine-18-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose in recurrent colorectal cancer. (3/459)

PURPOSE: To assess the additional value of the whole-body [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scan as a staging modality complementing conventional diagnostic methods (CDM) in patients suspected of having recurrent colorectal adenocarcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 103 patients, the discordances between FDG-PET and CDM results were identified and related to the final diagnosis obtained by histopathology or clinical follow-up (> 1 year). All FDG-PET studies were reviewed with full knowledge of the CDM findings. RESULTS: In a region-based analysis, discordances between CDM and FDG-PET findings were found in 40 of 412 regions (10%). In these, FDG-PET had additional diagnostic value in 14 of 16 locoregional, six of seven hepatic, seven of eight abdominal, and eight of nine extra-abdominal regions. In a patient-based analysis, CDM categorized a subgroup of 60 patients as having resectable recurrent disease limited to the liver (n = 37) or locoregional region (n = 23). In 13 of these patients, there were discordant FDG-PET findings, detecting additional tumor sites in nine patients and excluding disease in three patients and yielding an additional diagnostic value in 20% of the patients. A second subgroup consisted of 13 patients with inconclusive CDM findings (n = 5) or with elevated plasma carcinoembryonic antigen levels and an otherwise negative conventional work-up (n = 8). In these patients, FDG-PET results were correct in eight of nine discordances, yielding a positive additional diagnostic value in 62% of the patients. CONCLUSION: Whole-body FDG-PET can have a clear impact on the therapeutic management in the follow-up of patients with colorectal cancer.  (+info)

Treatment of upper abdominal malignancies with organ cluster procedures. (4/459)

Upper abdominal exenteration for upper abdominal malignancies was carried out in 15 patients with removal of the liver, spleen, pancreas, duodendum, all or part of the stomach, proximal jejunum and ascending and transverse colon. Organ replacement was with the liver, pancreas and duodenum plus, in some cases, a short segment of jejunum. Eleven of the 15 patients survived for more than 4 months; 2 died, after 61/2 and 10 months, of recurrent tumor. Of the 9 patients who are surviving after 61/2 to 14 months, recurrent tumor is suspected in only 1 and proven in none. Four patients with sarcomas and carcinoid tumors (2 each) have had no recurrences. The other 5 survivors had duct cell cancers (3 examples), a cholangiocarcinoma (1 example), and a hepatoma (1 example). The experience so far supports further cautious trials with this drastic cancer operation.  (+info)

Sonographically guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of abdominal lymph nodes: experience in 102 patients. (5/459)

We present our experience with sonographically guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes in 102 patients. The biopsied lymph nodes measured 1 to 6 cm (mean, 2.3 cm) and were located at the porta hepatis (n = 23), in the peripancreatic (n = 31), paraaortic (n = 22), aortocaval (n = 1), common iliac (n = 3), or external iliac (n = 6) regions, or in the mesentery (n = 16). Material sufficient for cytologic analysis was obtained in 87 (85.2%) of the 102 patients. The cytologic diagnosis in these patients included malignancy in 47 patients, tuberculosis in 28 patients, reactive lymphoid hyperplasia in 10 patients, and aspergillosis in two patients. In the other 15 patients, fine needle aspiration biopsy could not provide a definitive diagnosis. No major or minor complications occurred in our study. Thus, sonographic guidance is an effective alternative to computed tomography for biopsy of abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes.  (+info)

Biological effects of vinyl chloride: an experimental study. (6/459)

Plasma activities of alkaline phosphatase, (AP), transaminases and total lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) with isoenzymes were determined in mice inhaling 50 and 550 ppm vinyl chloride (VC). The animals were also autopsied and the tissue pathology was studies. The total LDH activity was elevanted in both dose groups along with a shift to cathodic enzymes. AP was increased in animals exposed to 500 ppm and transaminases were not at all changed. Enzyme changes occurred after the appearance of tumors. Alveologenic adenomas occurred in all animals at the higher dosage and in about half of the animals inhaling the lower dose. Subperitoneal and subcutaneous hemangiosarcomas were frequent in both dose groups; but especially among 50 ppm animals. Only one animal had a hemangiosarcoma of the liver. No liver fibrosis was seen. All primary subperitoneal and subcutaneous tumors were located in fat tissue. Telangiectasis was observed in two animals in the 500 ppm series. The importance of blood vessel changes in the toxicology of vinyl chloride is discussed.  (+info)

A pathologic study of abdominal lymphangiomas. (7/459)

Abdominal lymphangiomas are uncommon angiomatous tumor occurring mainly in childhood. This is a retrospective clinicopathologic study of 17 cases of abdominal lymphangioma. The patients included are five children and 12 adults, with a mean age at initial presentation of 30.7 years (age ranges 3-63). The locations of the tumors were mesentery (5), retroperitoneum (4), colon (3), omentum (3), mesocolon (1) and gallbladder (1). Infiltrative growth was more common pattern than entirely circumscribed pattern. Masses were mostly multilocular cysts and contained chyle or serous fluid. On immunohistochemical staining, 16 cases were reactive for either CD31 or factor VIII-related antigen. These fact would suggest that intra-abdominal lymphangiomas simulate the immunohistochemical features of collecting lymphatics. Follow up was possible in 12 cases for 3-50 months (mean 19 months) and only one patient showed local recurrence. Although abdominal lymphangiomas are rare in adulthood and correct preoperative diagnosis is difficult, awareness of such a possibility in adulthood will contribute to make a correct preoperative diagnosis.  (+info)

The potential of gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity. (8/459)

Gene therapy is a promising new treatment modality based on molecular genetic modification to achieve a therapeutic benefit. We believe that gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity holds considerable promise, and we describe strategies by which genetic modification can be used to treat a variety of disease states or conditions. First, we can envision a strategy, based on genetic modification of the peritoneal membrane, to improve the practice of peritoneal dialysis through the production of proteins that would be of therapeutic value in preventing membrane damage and in preserving or enhancing its function as a dialyzing membrane. Second, the membrane could be genetically modified for either local or systemic delivery of therapeutic proteins. This approach could be applied to a variety of pathologies or conditions that require either sustained or transient delivery of therapeutic proteins, such as enzymes or growth factors. Third, gene transfer has already been incorporated into several strategies for the treatment of intra-abdominal carcinomas, and it has been effective in animal models of ovarian and bladder cancer and of peritoneal mesothelioma. Finally, gene transfer can be a valuable tool in increasing our understanding of the biology of the peritoneal membrane. By being able to manipulate the expression of specific genes through gene transfer, their role in various (patho)physiological processes can be identified. In summary, gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity has significant potential to address a variety of diseases or pathophysiological conditions, and to further our knowledge of peritoneal cavity biology.  (+info)

Causes of Abdominal Tumor. Infection by Helicobacter pylori is believed to be the cause of most abdominal tumor while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels. Its also states that diet plays no role in the genesis of abdominal tumor. However, there is some research done listed down the following dietary risks, and protective factors, for abdominal tumor: "smoked foods, salted fish and meat, and pickled vegetables (appear to increase the risk of stomach cancer.) Nitrates and nitrites are substances commonly found in cured meats. They can be converted by certain bacteria, such as H. pylori, into compounds that have been found to cause stomach cancer in animals. On the other hand, eating fresh fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidant vitamins (such as A and C) appears to lower the risk of abdominal tumor.. In more detail, H. pylori is the main risk factor in 65-80% of abdominal tumor, but in only 2% of such ...

N2 - The objective of this study was to support our hypothesis that surgical resection of abdominal metastases of melanoma, regardless of symptomatology, could provide prolonged palliation and improved survival. We performed a retrospective chart review at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. A series of 251 melanoma patients (stages I, II, or III at registration) who developed intraabdominal metastases during follow-up were studied. Altogether, 96 patients underwent 119 laparotomies; 51 underwent endoscopic or percutaneous procedures; and 116 patients were treated medically. Surgery was associated with a median survival of 11 months, significantly longer than that with other treatment (p ,0.001). Tumor was extirpated during 37% of the first laparotomies, and in an ...

Editor,-The purpose of this preliminary childhood population based study was to evaluate the use of abdominal ultrasound examination to determine the incidence of abdominal tumours and to investigate the possibility of early diagnosis of these tumours at a preclinical stage.. This study in general population is very difficult because of organisational problems and high cost. Therefore, we studied children under 1 year of age who were referred by their paediatricians, for another reason, to an ultrasonography centre in order to have an ultrasound examination. The most common reasons for referral were the investigation of the urinary tract after a urinary tract infection and the investigation of vomiting for possible gastro-oesophageal reflux. The study was initiated on January 1992, when we asked the radiologists of this centre to examine the whole abdomen of the referred children. In a five year period (January 1992 to December 1996) 7500 infants were examined. None of these children had ...

Pathways of lymph node involvement in upper abdominal malignancies: evaluation with high-resolution CT.: The aim of this study was to enhance our understanding
A 44-year-old woman presented with a tumorous mass on the right hypochondrium, however, no clear tumor was detected. One year later she was found to have an abdominal tumor. Upon surgery, the abdominal tumor was identified as a pedunculated hepatoma arising from the right hepatic lobe and was resected radically. Two years later, the hepatoma recurred as very rare remote metastases to the lung, brain and gingiva, and the patient died of respiratory failure. Autopsy showed no local recurrence in the liver, but remote metastases were present in the lung, brain and lymph nodes. The gingival tumor had disappeared following irradiation therapy.

Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, biologically aggressive soft tissue neoplasm of uncertain differentiation, most often arising in the abdominal and pelvic cavities of adolescents and young adults with a striking male predominance. Histologically, it is characterized by islands of uniform small round cells in prominent desmoplastic stroma, and it has a polyimmunophenotypic profile, typically expressing WT1 and cytokeratin, desmin, and neural/neuroendocrine differentiation markers to varying degrees. Tumors at other sites and with variant morphology are more rarely described. DSRCT is associated with a recurrent t(11;22)(p13;q12) translocation, leading to the characteristic EWSR1-WT1 gene fusion. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), to detect EWSR1 rearrangement, and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to assess for EWSR1-WT1 fusion transcripts are routine diagnostic ancillary tools. We present a large institutional comparative series of FISH and ...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare abdominal tumors which arise from the interstitial cells of Cajal in the gastrointestinal tract. Gastric GISTs are the most commonly seen GIST tumors and may grow to a very large size. They are often associated with abdominal pain, anorexia and weight loss. Most of them can be detected by CT. These tumors have been found to harbor mutations in CD117 which causes constitutional activation of the tyrosine kinase signaling pathway and is considered to be pathognomic. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib have revolutionized the treatment of these tumors, which are otherwise resistant to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment, tyrosine kinase inhibitors have been useful in prolonging the recurrence-free survival of these patients. Resistance to imatinib has been reported in GISTs with specific mutations. We present a case of gastric GIST which grew to a very large size and was ...

The Effect of Anesthetic Technique on Cardiac Troponin-T and Systemic Inflammatory Response after Major Abdominal Cancer Surgery Abstract.
The most common of such causes is malignant neoplasia (eighty% of scenarios in a single research) and the majority of People conditions are hemangiosarcoma (88%). More malignant tumors can involve mesothelioma, pheochromocytoma and hepatic metastasis from other abdominal malignancies. The most common non-malignant cause is actually a ruptured splenic hematoma which in fact has a great prognosis with splenectomy alone. Homeowners should typically make immediate selections with regards to stabilization, treatment and surgery for their pet. Consequently, it is vital to inform homeowners of your likelihood of their pet acquiring malignant neoplasia along with the treatment alternatives in addition to the overall weak prognosis related with hemangiosarcoma (HSA ...

Wilms tumor, or nephroblastoma, is the most common childhood abdominal malignancy. The median age at diagnosis of Wilms tumor is approximately 3.
Health problems attributed to the IVC are most often associated with it being compressed (ruptures are rare because it has a low intraluminal pressure). Typical sources of external pressure are an enlarged aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm), the gravid uterus (aortocaval compression syndrome) and abdominal malignancies, such as colorectal cancer, renal cell carcinoma and ovarian cancer. Since the inferior vena cava is primarily a right-sided structure, unconscious pregnant females should be turned on to their left side (the recovery position), to relieve pressure on it and facilitate venous return. In rare cases, straining associated with defecation can lead to restricted blood flow through the IVC and result in syncope (fainting).[1] Occlusion of the IVC is rare, but considered life-threatening and is an emergency. It is associated with deep vein thrombosis, IVC filters, liver transplantation and instrumentation (e.g. catheter in the femoral vein).[2] ...
BACKGROUND. Adrenal tumors are uncommon in dogs and very rare in cats. Adrenocortical tumors and pheochromocytoma are the most common adrenal tumors. Adrenocortical tumors cause hyperadrenocorticism (or Cushings disease). Pheochromocytomas can be an incidental finding or produce various non-specific signs because of the release of catecholamines. Both types of adrenal tumors can invade into the adjacent caudal vena cava (major abdominal vein) and kidney. Metastasis is uncommon.. DIAGNOSIS. Diagnosis of adrenal tumors can be difficult. Screening tests (such as urine cortisol-to-creatinine ratio, low-dose dexamethasone suppression test, and ACTH stimulation test) can confirm the diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism and differentiate whether a pituitary or adrenal tumor is responsible for causing clinical signs. Abdominal ultrasound is necessary to document the presence of an adrenal mass. Ultrasound, contrast vascular radiographs, or CT scans may be necessary to determine invasion of the tumor into ...
A 30-year-old man with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) underwent prophylactic proctocolectomy by laparoscopy-assisted surgery. After 10 months, we found an intra-abdominal tumor, which grew rapidly to 25 cm in diameter. We performed an emergency operation, which revealed that it was a desmoid tumor derived mainly from colorectal mesenterium. Read More ...
Introduction. Wilms tumour (nephroblastoma) is the second most common intra-abdominal tumour presenting during childhood, with approximately 80% of cases diagnosed before the age of 5 years.1 Advances in treatment have greatly improved the prognosis for children with this condition. Where survival rates were once less than 30%, they are currently quoted at 90%, making it one of the success stories of modern medicine.2. Nephroblastomas metastasise predominantly to the lungs (58%) and liver (29%), and only rarely to other sites such as the skeleton, mediastinum and brain. Most relapses (90%) occur within 4 years of diagnosis.3 The practice of post-treatment surveillance imaging is aimed at the early detection of tumour recurrence, thereby enabling early salvage therapy. Long-term survival following salvage therapy has reportedly increased from below 30% in the mid-1980s, to the current range of 50% - 60%.4. Recommendations for post-treatment surveillance imaging of patients with Wilms tumour that ...
Primary tumors of the heart are extremely rare tumors that arise from the normal tissues that make up the heart. This is in contrast to secondary tumors of the heart, which are typically either metastatic from another part of the body, or infiltrate the heart via direct extension from the surrounding tissues. The most common primary tumor of the heart is the myxoma. In surgical series, the myxoma makes up as much as 77% of all primary tumors of the heart. Less common tumors of the heart include lipoma and cystic tumor of the atrioventricular nodal region. About 20 percent of primary tumors of the heart are malignant in nature. Malignant tumors of the heart include rhabdomyosarcomas, angiosarcomas, myxosarcomas, fibrosarcomas, leiomyosarcomas, reticulum cell sarcomas, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and liposarcomas. The cardiac sarcomas may occur at any age, but are more commonly seen in individuals in their 20s to 40s. They occur equally in males and females. A subset of the primary tumors ...

The median age of the patients was 52 years. The primary tumor subtype was luminal A (LA) in 7 cases, luminal B (LB) in 7 cases, luminal-Her2 (LH) in 4 cases, triple negative (TN) in 10 cases, and undetermined in 3 cases. The median disease-free interval was 61 months (11-200) after excluding 2 cases with lung oligometastases at the time of first examination. The 5-year recurrence- free survival rate after resection of lung oligometastases was 55%, and the 5-year overall survival rate was 88%. The subtype did not change between the primary tumor and the oligometastases in 19 of 28 cases (68%). Among the 9 cases where the subtype changed (32%), the change was from LB to LA in 4 cases, which did not influence the subsequent treatment. However, in the remaining 5 cases, the subtype changed from LA, LB, or LH to TN in 4 cases and from TN to LA in 1 case, leading to a change in the subsequent treatment. ...

Purpose: MRI provides detailed pictures of soft tissues without obstruction by overlying bone. It is often used to clarify findings from previous X-ray studies or CT scans. It can show or demonstrate wide areas of the abdomen from multiple planes. MRI can evaluate certain organ functions. It clearly shows lymph nodes and blood vessels, and is a noninvasive imaging method for evaluation of blood flow.. MRI may be used in diagnosing abnormal growths. It can distinguish tumors or other lesions from normal tissues and can provide information for the staging (determination of the size, extent, and spread) of abdominal tumors. MRI is sometimes used to avoid the dangers of angiography, repeated exposure to radiation, or for patients that cannot receive iodinated contrast dye.. Prior Preparation: No preparatory tests, diets, or medications are usually needed, unless the colon needs to be cleansed (with preparations such as a laxative or an enema). An MRI can be performed immediately after other imaging ...

We spoke to lead author, Sohrab Shah, to get some background on this research.. What features of this particular cancer made you want to study its metastasis? Were you surprised by your findings?. High grade serous ovarian cancers are often widespread through the peritoneal cavity at diagnosis. We wanted to ask what are the characteristics of cells that spread and what is the distribution of these cells throughout the abdominal lesions. The focus was to study the disease state prior to any treatment to characterize the diversity and take in inventory of the substrate of clones upon which treatment selective pressures may be acting. Many patients experience relapse after initial response to treatment. Mapping which clones lead to relapse remains a key question in the field. This was borne out in one patient in our study where specific clones that led to relapses were already present at diagnosis but only represented a minority of branches in the clonal phylogeny.. It is important to note that ...
Despite improvements in chemotherapy and radical surgical debulking, peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) remains among the most common causes of death from abdominal cancers. Immunotherapies have been effective for selected solid malignancies, but their potential in PC has been little explored. Here, we report that intraperitoneal injection of an infected cell vaccine (ICV), consisting of autologous tumor cells infected ex vivo with an oncolytic Maraba MG1 virus expressing IL12, promotes the migration of activated natural killer (NK) cells to the peritoneal cavity in response to the secretion of IFNγ-induced protein-10 (IP-10) from dendritic cells. The recruitment of cytotoxic, IFNγ-secreting NK cells was associated with reduced tumor burden and improved survival in a colon cancer model of PC. Even in mice with bulky PC (tumors , 8 mm), a complete radiologic response was demonstrated within 8 to14 weeks, associated with 100% long-term survival. The impact of MG1-IL12-ICV upon NK-cell recruitment ...

There is no known effective treatment for cats and dogs with nodular and diffuse liver tumors as liver tumors are generally considered resistant to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. However, three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy has been reported with objective responses in five of six dogs and minimal acute radiation effects; and the use of adjuvant gemcitabine in dogs with incompletely excised massive HCC, nodular HCC, and diffuse HCC has been reported in 18 dogs with good results.. Palliative treatment options, especially for nodular and diffuse hepatic tumors, include, microwave ablation, embolization, and chemoembolization, but these modalities are not widely available.. PROGNOSIS. The prognosis following surgical resection of massive HCC in dogs and bile duct adenomas in cats is very good. The majority of cats and dogs are cured. In one study of 42 dogs with massive HCC treated with liver lobectomy, two dogs (5%) died intraoperatively secondary to blood loss as a result of ...
Management of these splenic cyst is threefold: What is the nature of the cyst? Should we operate and what surgery do? Cysts are classified as congenital cyst, pseudocyst, parasitic and tumor cysts. Our case was nonparasitic splenic cysts in the absence of infectious syndrome and non-tumoral on imaging. Martin Fowler [1], have made a classification distinguishing between congenital cysts (CC) that have an epithelial lining and post traumatic pseudo cysts (PC) which do not. Therefore, the distinction between CC and pseudo cyst may be made at histology. Without the recent notion obvious trauma, there is no clinical or radiological feature which distinguish them. They appear both in the CT scan thin-walled, hypodense, and without enhancement after contrast injection [2]. This distinction based on the presence or absence of epithelial lining is challenged by Morgenstern [3], which considers that several CC are wrongly considered as PC. Indeed, the wall is discontinuous and only a careful histological ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cytoreduction of ovarian cancer with the cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator. AU - Adelson, Mark D.. AU - Baggish, Michael S.. AU - Seifer, David B.. AU - Cassell, Sandra L.. AU - Thompson, Margaret A.. PY - 1988/7. Y1 - 1988/7. N2 - The Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator was used for cytoreduction in ten patients with intra-abdominal malignancy (nine ovarian and one fallopian tube). The mean age was 65 years, and eight patients had stage IIIC disease. Standard surgical techniques were used to resect the adnexa, uterus, and omentum. The Cavitron was used to remove disease from the diaphragm, spleen, stomach, and small bowel without resection or injury. These nongenital viscera would have required resection using surgical techniques for cytoreduction. The mean Cavitron surgical time was 49 minutes. Cytoreduction by the Cavitron facilitates tumor removal and reduces the requirement for nongenital visceral resection.. AB - The Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator was used ...
BAP3 was initially identified through interaction in a yeast two-hybrid system with the brain-specific angiogenesis inhibitor 1, a p53-target gene that encodes a seven-span transmembrane protein member of the secretin receptor family. BAP3 is predominantly expressed in the brain and possess high homology with Munc13 and synaptotagmin, suggesting that BAP3 may play a role in regulating neurotransmitter release. Recent experiments have shown that BAP3 is induced in certain tumors such as desmoplastic small round cell tumor. Ectopic expression of BAP3 in tumor cells dramatically enhances growth in low serum conditions and colony formation in soft agar, suggesting that the regulated exocytotic pathway may play a role in cancer cell proliferation. BAP3 is known to have two isoforms; this BAP3 antibody will recognize only isoform 2. Lower molecular weight bands may represent cleavage or degradation products. ...

Introduction: Pulmonary lesions located in close proximity to thoracic wall may be sampled either by tru-cut biopsy or by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of lung using 18-20 gauge needles under ultrasound guidance.. Aims and objectives: To assess the utility and safety of ultrasound guided transthoracic tru-cut biopsy and FNAC lung in the evaluation of peripherally located pulmonary lesions.. Methods: All patients with peripheral lung lesions who underwent tru-cut biopsy or FNAC of lung under USG guidance between January 2008 and January 2012 in a tertiary care hospital were included in the study. Patients were observed for one hour following the procedure and a chest x-ray was performed after that to look for any pneumothorax.. Results: 57 patients (39 males and 18 females) underwent the above procedure during the period of study. Mean age of patients was 51.3 years (range: 25-79 years). 42 patients underwent tru-cut biopsy of lung and 15 cases underwent FNAC of lung. Mean tumour sizes ...
hi everyone. My wife had abdominal tumors including kidney and bladder. (Actually the bladder one was radiated and died.) She is being sent hope with Nephrostomy Tube and Bag to drain urine as the ureters are blocked. I will need to help her drain it. My question has to do with the size of the bag. They say it will need to be emptied every 4-6 hours. All the bags I have found are 600 ml. That means I cant sleep through the night. Why not use a larger bag at night? Has anyone solved

An abdominal mass is any localized enlargement or swelling in the human abdomen. Depending on its location, the abdominal mass may be caused by an enlarged liver (hepatomegaly), enlarged spleen (splenomegaly), protruding kidney, a pancreatic mass, a retroperitoneal mass (a mass in the posterior of the peritoneum), an abdominal aortic aneurysm, or various tumours, such as those caused by abdominal carcinomatosis and omental metastasis. The treatments depend on the cause, and may range from watchful waiting to radical surgery. Many abdominal masses are discovered incidentally during routine physical examination. When they are present symptomatically, abdominal masses are most frequently associated with pain or digestive problems. However, depending on the cause, masses may be associated with other signs and symptoms, such as jaundice or bowel obstruction. The first steps in diagnosis are a medical history and physical examination. Important clues during history include weight loss, diarrhea and ...
In recent years we have witnessed an expanding role of laparoscopy in gynecology. Few operations, generally those involving the vulva, have not been improved vastly by the addition of endoscopic technology. The dearth of randomized controlled trials showing the benefit of such technology dissuade only the most archaic troglodytes in our specialty.The final frontier of laparoscopy has now been reached. Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic node dissection,1 aortic node dissection,2 and other radical pelvic and abdominal cancer operations3 5 are now commonly done endoscopically. Obstetrics is one of the few remaining areas in our specialty that has not fully embraced the manifest benefits of laparoscopically assisted operations, but that is beginning to change. An article on endoscopic removal of adnexal masses in pregnancy6 and a case report of an endoscopic uterine suspension during pregnancy7 have been published recently. The logical extension of the technology is into operative ...
Cancerous tumours can be detected under the skin by using tiny gold particles embedded with dyes, a new study claims.. Scientists at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology said the new technique could one day help doctors to detect and diagnose cancer earlier and less invasively.. The researchers injected mice with gold particles studded with antibody fragments called ScFv peptides that bind cancer cells.. They found that the particles grab on to tumours, and when illuminated with a laser beam they send back a signal that is specific to the dye.. Writing in the journal Nature Biotechnology, the scientists say the cancer cells were detected at a depth of 1cm to 2cm, making the gold particles an especially appropriate tool for head and neck tumours that tend to be more accessible.. They argue that the treatment will need further adaptation before it can be used for lung or abdominal cancers deep within the body.. The gold particles are extremely bright and are about 60 to 80 ...
Since WBRT does not translate into increased survival, there are more reports advocating the use of local RT after surgical resection of brain metastases due to the neurotoxicity of WBRT. A randomized trial to assess neurocognition in patients with brain metastases reported significantly better learning and memory function by 4 months for the SRS alone group compared to that in the SRS plus WBRT group [11]. Thus, a growing number of studies have reported the efficacy of omitting WBRT and delivering local RT after surgical resection for brain oligometastases [20,21]. However, randomized trials that directly compare WBRT with local RT after metastasectomy have never been performed. Although RTOG 1270 is ongoing, we will have to wait for some years to see the results [17,23]. The present study also investigated a lower WBRT dose with a boost to the tumor bed, since WBRT neurotoxicity is associated with the total dose and fractionation [12,13]. Although no studies have directly compared lower WBRT ...
Desmoid tumors are benign fibrous neoplasms which arise from the fibrous tissue of intra- and extra- abdominal sites, but their clinical management is sometimes difficult because of extensive infiltration into the surrounding tissues. Desmoid tumors commonly occur in women, especially after childbirth. Recently, both clinical and experimental findings indicate the possible roles of sex steroids in the development and progression of desmoid tumors but detailed information is still ambiguous. In this study, we first examined immunoreactivity of sex steroid receptors in desmoid tumors (27 cases) by immunohistochemistry and compared the findings with those in reactive self-limiting lesions associated with fibrosis (8 cases). Estrogen receptor (ER) α and ERβ immunoreactivities were detected in 7.4% (2/27) and 7.4% (2/27) of desmoid tumors, respectively. One desmoid tumor expressed both ERα and ERβ. Progesterone receptor (PR)-A and PR-B were detected in 25.9% (7/27) and 33.3% (9/27), respectively, ...

Purpose. The description of the alterations in the hemostatic system in children undergoing abdominal surgery is sparse. Enhanced clinical outcomes for previously untreatable conditions have led to an increased incidence of venous thromboembolic complications. Alterations in childrens coagulation system during major abdominal operations compared to minor procedures were examined. Methods. Children (0-12 years) undergoing either laparotomy, thoracotomy, or minor surgery were included. Participants were divided into two groups: group 1 was open laparotomy including operations for solid abdominal tumours and thoracotomy, while group 2 was minor surgery. Activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), D-dimer, INR, and fibrinogen were measured. Results. Both groups had a shorter aPTT, higher INR, and lower fibrinogen concentrations after the operation, while D-dimer was unaltered. The changes were, however, discrete and probably not clinically significant. On day 3, all parameters except aPTT in ...
Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), also called small cell carcinoma or large cell carcinoma, is a rare and aggressive tumor that develops mainly in the lung and intestine. More rarely, NEC develops in gynecologic organs, with poor prognoses. We experienced a case of NEC in the broad ligament of the uterus. The patient was a 74-year-old woman with symptoms of abdominal distension and constipation. Ultrasound sonography detected an abdominal tumor larger than 10 cm. She was then admitted to our hospital. She underwent surgery under the diagnosis of ovarian cancer, but the bilateral ovaries and uterus were normal in appearance, and a tumor was developing instead from the broad ligament of the uterus ...

Advanced intra-abdominal desmoids tumors present with severe symptoms, complications or rapid growth, which lead to adverse outcomes. Our aim was to evaluate the treatment and outcome of patients with advanced intra-abdominal desmoids tumors, and develop guidelines for surgical management of these patients. We reviewed the clinical courses of 21 adult patients with advanced stage intra-abdominal desmoid tumors who presented to an intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation program. Patients with massive intestinal resection presented in two groups. The first group had a short small intestinal remnant after resection ( | 60 cm). These patients were poor rehabilitation candidates and eventually met criteria for transplant. The second had longer intestinal remnants and were more successfully rehabilitated and have not had complications that would lead to transplantation. Advanced intra-abdominal desmoid tumors have outcomes after resection that merit aggressive resection and planned intestinal

Background: Weight loss clinics are common in the United States. Unfortunately, some offer dubious weight loss methods such as self-administered human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections. HCG products are unregulated, yet, widely available. Infection is among the risks potentially associated with this treatment. We report a case of skin infection caused by Mycobacterium fortuitum after HCGinjection.. Case Presentation: A 51-year-old woman with a history of hypogammaglobulinemia presented with an eight week history of a tender abdominal lesion. The lesion was at the site of a previous HCG injection.Acid-fast bacilli (AFB) culture grew Mycobacterium fortuitum. Based on the organisms susceptibility profile, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim 800-160mg and ciprofloxacin 500 mg were both prescribed. The case was referred to the Missouri Department of Health. Based on clinical progress treatment was continued for a total of six months.. Conclusions: This case illustrates the potential for cutaneous ...

Radiation-induced intestinal injuries (RIII) commonly occur in patients who suffer from pelvic or abdominal cancer. Nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a key transcriptional regulator of antioxidant, and the radioprotective role of Nrf2 is found in bone marrow, lung, and intestine, etc. Here, we investigated the effect of Nrf2 knockout on radiation-induced intestinal injuries using Nrf2 knockout (Nrf2−/−) mice and wild-type (Nrf2+/+) C57BL/6J mice following 13 Gy abdominal irradiation (ABI). It was found that Nrf2 knockout promoted the survival of irradiated mice, protected the crypt-villus structure of the small intestine, and elevated peripheral blood lymphocyte count and thymus coefficients. The DNA damage of peripheral blood lymphocytes and the apoptosis of intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) of irradiated Nrf2−/− mice were decreased. Furthermore, compared with that of Nrf2+/+ mice, Nrf2 knockout increased the number of Lgr5+ intestinal stem cells (ISCs) and their daughter

The thing is, the results of these tests will only go so far. They cant tell you if your levels are high or adrenal-hyperplasia-high. The endo called this a "grey zone," where adrenal hyperplasia still cant be confirmed or ruled out, and further testing is required. And so I am waiting for a nurse from the lab at the hospital to schedule me ACTH stimulation test. I am not going to look this up right now, I think Id rather not know too much about it and risk making myself more nervous, but the endo did explain in a nutshell what happens. I go in, the nurse injects me with something that will stimulate the production of hormones, then do a blood test 30 and 60 minutes afterward. I think Ill be able to handle that, but still, it being at the hospital and something Ive never done before, I know Ill get more and more anxious closer to. So Id appreciate it if readers didnt share their horror stories about this test or anything. Ignorance is bliss right now ...
Abstract  As a large amount of blood loss is sometimes encountered in limb salvage procedures for pelvic tumours, it is essential to identify risk factors predicting the possibility of extensive haemorrhage. We retrospectively reviewed 137 patients who underwent pelvic tumour resections. Patients with an estimated blood loss greater than 3,000 ml were classified as having a large amount of blood loss. Sixty-one (44.53%) patients had blood loss greater than 3,000 ml. Tumours involving the acetabulum or sacrum, tumour volume greater than 400 cm3, aorta occlusion, resection method, reconstruction and operative time were all associated with a large amount of blood loss. Pelvic tumours involving the acetabulum or sacrum (odds ratio: 4.837), tumour volume greater than 400 cm3 (odds ratio: 3.005) and planned operation time of more than 200 min (odds ratio: 3.784) independently predicted a large amount of blood loss.

Desmoid tumors (DT) (=aggressive fibromatosis) are histologically benign but locally invasive with a high recurrence rate. DT doesn´t metastasize but it can nearly affect all parts of the body (extremities (including pelvic and shoulder girdles), trunk (mostly abdominal wall) and abdominal cavity (mostly within the mesentery of the pelvis) ). Especially in the extremities a DT tends to multifocal growing. The clinical course is often unpredictable and varies a lot.. Desmoid tumors are a rare tumor entity seen in about 3-4 cases per 1 million of the population per annum. DT occurs mainly between the age of 15 and 60 years with a peak age of about 30 years.. In Desmoid tumors we have to differentiate between sporadic desmoid tumors and desmoid tumors connected to familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Most desmoid tumors occur sporadically only 5-10 percent of all DT arise in the context of FAP. Young adults, especially femals often related to pregnancy are more affected by sporadic DT. In older ...
