Carcinoid of the appendix during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: unexpected benefits. (1/160)

Carcinoid tumors of the midgut arise from the distal duodenum, jejunum, ileum, appendix, ascending and right transverse colon. The appendix and terminal ileum are the most common location. The majority of carcinoid tumors originate from neuroendocrine cells along the gastrointestinal tract, but they are also found in the lung, ovary, and biliary tracts. We report the first case of elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in which we found a suspicious lesion at the tip of the appendix and proceeded to perform a laparoscopic appendectomy. The lesion revealed a carcinoid tumor of the appendix.  (+info)

Molecular genetic evidence supporting the clonality and appendiceal origin of Pseudomyxoma peritonei in women. (2/160)

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a poorly understood condition characterized by mucinous ascites and multifocal peritoneal mucinous tumors. Women with PMP often have mucinous tumors involving both the appendix and the ovaries. Several previous histopathological and immunohistochemical studies of PMP have suggested that most, if not all, cases of PMP in women are derived from mucinous adenomas of the appendix rather than from primary ovarian tumors. A few studies of the molecular genetics of PMP have been recently reported. However, these studies analyzed only a small number of cases and some included a heterogeneous group of mucinous tumors, including both benign and malignant appendiceal and ovarian tumors. We analyzed K-ras mutations and allelic losses of chromosomes 18q, 17p, 5q, and 6q in a substantial number of morphologically uniform cases of PMP with synchronous ovarian and appendiceal tumors as well as in appendiceal mucinous adenomas (MAs) and ovarian mucinous tumors of low malignant potential (MLMPs) unassociated with PMP. Each of the 16 PMP cases (100%) analyzed demonstrated identical K-ras mutations in the appendiceal adenoma and corresponding synchronous ovarian tumor. K-ras mutations were identified in 11 of 16 (69%) appendiceal MAs unassociated with PMP and in 12 of 16 (75%) ovarian MLMPs unassociated with PMP. Two PMP cases showed identical allelic losses in the matched ovarian and appendiceal tumors. A discordant pattern of allelic loss between the ovarian and appendiceal tumors at one or two of the loci tested was observed in six PMP cases. In all but one instance, LOH was observed in the ovarian tumor, whereas both alleles were retained in the matched appendiceal lesion, suggesting tumor progression in a secondary (metastatic) site. Our findings strongly support the conclusion that mucinous tumors involving the appendix and ovaries in women with PMP are clonal and derived from a single site, most likely the appendix.  (+info)

Morphological-histochemical study of intestinal carcinoids and K-ras mutation analysis in appendiceal carcinoids. (3/160)

Intestinal carcinoids are potentially malignant neoplasms. Their histogenesis and pathogenesis are currently uncertain. The morphological and histochemical characteristics of twenty intestinal carcinoids are studied. The primary sites of three mucin-producing tumors were examined by electron microscope. Furthermore 11 appendiceal carcinoids were analysed by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of ras and p53 point mutations. Microscopically all carcinoids were of mixed type. Focal mucin production was evident in three carcinoids that metastasised to regional lymph nodes. HID-Alcian blue staining proved that mucin in both primary and secondary foci did not belong to the sulphated group. The secretory granules and mucin droplets found in a single neoplastic cell suggest that carcinoids of the small intestine and some of the appendix arise from the endoderm. Neither ras nor p53 mutations were detected. It seems that ras oncogenes are probably not involved in the pathogenesis of appendiceal carcinoids.  (+info)

Malignant mesothelioma eight years after a diagnosis of atypical mesothelial hyperplasia. (4/160)

The separation of mesothelial hyperplasia from early malignant mesothelioma remains one of the most difficult problems in histopathology. Inconclusive cases are termed "atypical mesothelial hyperplasia" and treated expectantly. A 49 year old male pipeline engineer was diagnosed as having atypical mesothelial hyperplasia in appendiceal serosa by the US-Canadian Mesothelioma Panel. Eight years later, he developed overtly malignant peritoneal and pleural mesothelioma. In hindsight, histological similarities between the diffuse malignant mesothelioma and the atypical mesothelial proliferation suggested malignancy from the outset. The most important of these features were the degree of mesothelial proliferation, micronodularity, architectural complexity, superficial invasion, uniform mild cytological atypia, and the absence of a clinical cause for a benign mesothelial proliferation. Ancillary investigations including immunohistochemistry were of no benefit in determining whether the atypical mesothelial hyperplasia was benign or malignant. Careful histological examination remains the mainstay of the diagnosis of early mesothelioma.  (+info)

The coexistence of low-grade mucinous neoplasms of the appendix and appendiceal diverticula: a possible role in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. (5/160)

We examined 38 appendectomies with diagnoses of mucocele, diverticulum, or adenoma to study the coincidence of appendiceal diverticula and appendiceal low-grade mucinous neoplasms and to examine the possible role of diverticula in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. Invasive adenocarcinomas and retention cysts were excluded (six cases). Cases were classified as adenomas or mucinous tumors of unknown malignant potential, with or without diverticula. Medical records were reviewed for multiple parameters, including presenting symptoms, presence of pseudomyxoma peritonei, and presence of associated malignancies. Binomial statistics were used to calculate the probability that the observed prevalence of low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula together was significantly different from the expected prevalence of diverticula or low-grade mucinous neoplasms alone, using historical controls from the literature. Twenty-five percent of the total cases (8 of 32) contained both a low-grade mucinous neoplasm (7 cystadenomas and 1 mucinous tumor of unknown malignant potential) and a diverticulum. Thus, 8 of 19 low-grade mucinous neoplasms (42%) were associated with diverticula. Of the appendices with both low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula, three contained dissecting acellular mucin within the appendiceal wall, four showed diverticular perforation, and one had pseudomyxoma peritonei associated with the ruptured diverticulum. A significant percentage (P < .001) of cases contained low-grade mucinous neoplasms and diverticula together. The case of coexistent low-grade mucinous neoplasm, diverticulum, and pseudomyxoma peritonei suggests that diverticula could play a role in the pathogenesis of pseudomyxoma peritonei. This could occur either by involvement of preexisting diverticula by the neoplasm or by distention of the appendiceal lumen by mucin, leading to increased intraluminal pressure and subsequent diverticulum formation at a weak area in the wall. Either mechanism might allow low-grade mucinous neoplasms to penetrate the appendiceal wall more easily.  (+info)

Pyomyositis mimicking right iliac fossa mass: review of the literature. (6/160)

Pyomyositis is a pyogenic infection of skeletal muscle. Its incidence in temperate countries though low is rising. Most cases from the temperate region involve immuno-compromised patients. The onset is usually insidious with progression to large purulent collections. Because of its low incidence in temperate countries, it is often initially misdiagnosed. A high index of suspicion with appropriate imaging techniques, aggressive surgical intervention and adjunctive antibiotic therapy are the keys to prompt resolution. A case of pyomyositis mimicking right iliac fossa (RIF) mass is described with a review of the literature.  (+info)

Carcinoid syndrome symposium on treatment modalities for gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours: symposium summary. (7/160)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a collaborative approach for the treatment of gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours and carcinoid syndrome. PARTICIPANTS: Leaders in the medical, endocrine, radiologic and surgical treatment of carcinoid disease were selected to present papers at the Carcinoid Syndrome Symposium on Treatment Modalities for Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumours and participate in the workshop that followed. EVIDENCE: A multidisciplinary symposium with experts in the field of carcinoid syndrome was organized at the University of Calgary. Data presented, participation of the attendees and a review of the literature were used in the workshop to develop a collaborative approach to the management of carcinoid tumours. BENEFITS: Carcinoid tumours are rare and few centres have large experiences in their treatment. Before the development of this collaboration, patients with carcinoid tumours received a unidisciplinary approach depending on referral patterns. The development of a multidisciplinary neuroendocrine clinic helped to unify the approach to these patients, yet a consensus on the treatment of carcinoid tumours was lacking. The expertise at the symposium allowed for consensus and the development of treatment algorithms, including biochemical screening, radiographic localization and surgical intervention, for gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours. The role of medical and hormonal therapy after cytoreducion is presented. RECOMMENDATION: Patients with carcinoid tumours require a multidisciplinary approach to their care.  (+info)

AU - Clark Gamblin, T.. AU - Turaga, Kiran K.. PY - 2016/7/1. Y1 - 2016/7/1. N2 - Background: Prognosis of appendiceal adenocarcinoma patients is based on burden of disease, histology, and nature of therapy, which remains static despite time in follow-up. We hypothesized that conditional survival provides an informative metric that allows patients better understanding of their disease. Methods: Using the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database, patients with appendiceal adenocarcinoma from 1988 to 2012 were included. Actuarial Life table analyses and Kaplan-Meier curves were used for statistical inference. Results: Of 5,952 patients, the median age was 60 years (IQR 50-72) and 52 % were female. Histologies included were adenocarcinoma (NOS 37 %), mucinous adenocarcinoma (MA 53 %), and signet ring cell (SRC 10 ...

The response rates, PFS, and OS noted in this study are nearly identical to those seen in metastatic CRC, and support consideration of these regimens for advanced appendiceal adenocarcinoma in clinical practice. This recommendation is also consistent with current NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for Colon Cancer.12 In a large trial by Saltz et al,13 1401 patients were randomly assigned to XELOX versus FOLFOX and then to bevacizumab versus placebo. Median PFS was 9.4 months in the bevacizumab group and 8.0 months in the placebo group. Median OS was 21.3 months in the bevacizumab arm and 19.9 months in the placebo arm. Response rates were similar at 38% in both arms. These results are similar to those described in this analysis of treated patients with appendiceal carcinoma.. The present efficacy results are also in line with single-center experiences in the more modern era of chemotherapy. A retrospective review from MD Anderson analyzed 78 patients with either ...
Although both appendiceal tumor and intestinal endometriosis have been reported as rare causes of abdominal pain, the coexistence of appendiceal mucinous neoplasm and ileal endometriosis has not previously been reported. A 41-year-old Japanese woman presented with a positive fecal occult blood test and a 3-year history of menstruation-related lower abdominal pain. A colonoscopy demonstrated extrinsic compression of the cecum, suggesting a mass arising from the appendix or adjacent structures. Abdominal imaging showed a 6-cm cystic mass with intraluminal thick fluids originating from the appendix. At ileocecal resection for an appendiceal tumor, a 2-cm mass in the terminal ileum was incidentally found, which was included in the surgical specimen. Microscopic examination confirmed a diagnosis of a mucinous neoplasm of the appendix with endometriosis of the terminal ileum. To avoid urgent surgery for subsequent serious events associated with disease progression, appendiceal tumor and intestinal

I have been diagnosed with stage IV appendiceal adenocarcinoma and had surgery to remove appendix, part of my colon, and arachus in February of this year. The tumors have metasasized to the right pelvic sidewall and I am being treated with Oxaliplatin IV every 3 weeks followed by 2000 mg Xeloda (capecitabine) twice daily with meals for 14 days, followed by 7 days off treatment. Because this a relatively rare type of caner (about 1 in 10000 cases), I am being treated as a colo-rectal patient.. My question regards possible drug interaction with serum triglyceride blood tests. During my week off treatment, my reading was 209, which is slightly elevated from a normal range of 50-150. Towards the end of my next treatment cycle, the readings had shot up to 1167.

My oncologist says that he has been unable to find anything that shows a correlation or lack of one between either my IV or Xeloda and increased ...
One of the more interesting aspects of small bowel adenocarcinoma is its rarity in comparison to large intestine adenocarcinoma. Even though the small intestine represents approximately 70% to 80% of the length and over 90% of the surface area of the alimentary tract, the incidence of small bowel adenocarcinoma is 30-fold less than the incidence of colon adenocarcinoma. Numerous theories have been proposed to explain the small intestines relative protection from the development of carcinoma. Proposed protective factors have centered on two concepts. First, the rapid turnover time of small intestinal cells results in epithelial cell shedding prior to the necessary acquisition of multiple genetic defects. Second, the small bowels exposure to the carcinogenic components of our diet are limited due to rapid small bowel transit time, the lack of bacterial degradation activity that occurs in the small bowel, and the relatively dilute, alkaline environment of the small bowel ...

Ms. OFlaherty has clearly read the textbook chapter on appendicitis. Her pain developed over 36 hours and began with visceral (appendiceal) irritation that she perceived as midline discomfort. As her appendiceal inflammation became transmural, she stimulated somatic peritoneal nerves sufficient to cause RLQ pain but not sufficient to cause rebound. "Rebound" can be elicited by pressing very gently on the RLQ and then releasing the pressure. When the inflamed visceral and parietal peritoneum rub against each other, this causes discomfort. If the patient winces during this procedure, he or she has an inflamed peritoneal surface.. As with all patients, the history and physical examination can help you narrow the differential. For example, if this patient had recently eaten at an unfamiliar ethnic restaurant and now had raging diarrhea, you would think more of gastroenteritis. If she had a cervical discharge and exquisite tenderness with cervical motion (chandelier sign), you would think of pelvic ...

The vermiform appendix is a blind-ended tube that projects from the cecum. The term vermiform comes from Latin and it means worm-shaped. Thus, the vermiform appendix is a projection that is worm-shaped connected to the cecum. The average size of a human vermiform appendix is about 9 cm in length whereas the diameter is generally between 7 and 8 mm. It is often found in the lower right quadrant of the abdomen. Its position corresponds to the so-called McBurneys point. For herbivores, the vermiform appendix is essential since it is responsible for the breaking down of cellulose present in the cell wall of plants. In humans and other animals, it became a redundant process since it has no particular daily function. Nevertheless, it is postulated to be associated with maintaining gut flora, particularly during a recovery from diarrhea.1 ...
Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a clinical condition caused by cancerous cells (mucinous adenocarcinoma) that produce abundant mucin or gelatinous ascites. The tumors cause fibrosis of tissues and impede digestion or organ function, and if left untreated, the tumors and mucin they produce will fill the abdominal cavity. This will result in compression of organs and will destroy the function of colon, small intestine, stomach, or other organs. Prognosis with treatment in many cases is optimistic, but the disease is lethal if untreated, with death by cachexia, bowel obstruction, or other types of complications. This disease is most commonly caused by an appendiceal primary cancer (cancer of the appendix); mucinous tumors of the ovary have also been implicated, although in most cases ovarian involvement is favored to be a metastasis from an appendiceal or other gastrointestinal source. Disease is typically classified as low- or high-grade (with signet ring cells). When disease presents with ...

AIMS: The functional integration of the smooth muscle of enterocystoplasties into the detrusor muscle was investigated in an awake-rat cystometry model and in vitro.. METHODS: The upper fourth of the bladder was removed, and a detubularized appendiceal segment (7 x 7 mm), with preserved vasculature, was incorporated into the bladder. After 1 or 3 months, a catheter was fixed to the top of the bladders. After a 3-day recovery, cystometries were performed. In separate experiments, agonist and nerve-induced responses were evaluated on isolated bladder strips.. RESULTS: Cystometries revealed reduced basal pressure and micturition pressure in enterocystoplasty (ECP) bladders. Bladder capacity and micturition volume were increased. Threshold pressure (pressure immediately before micturition) was significantly lower at 1 month, but not at 3 months. Bladder compliance was significantly higher in the operated at 1 month but not at 3 months. Threshold tension did not differ between control and ...

The vermiform appendix is located in the right lower quadrant of abdomen (Williams et al, 1995, Sabiston et al, 2001). It is a narrow, worm shaped tube, arising from the posteromedial caecal wall, 2cms or less below the end of the ileum (Williams et al, 1995; Zinner et al, 1997). Its opening is occasionally guarded by a semicircular fold of mucous membrane knwn as the valve of Gerlach (Singh, 1999). The appendix is usually located at the junction of the taeniae,found on the surface of the caecum (Williams et al, 1995; Sabiston et al, 2001 and Schwartz at al, 1999). Its length varies from 2-20 cms, with an average length of 9cms (Williams et al, 1995, Buschard. & Kjaeldgaurd, 1973). The attachment of the base of the appendix to the caecum remains constant, whereas the tip can be found in a retrocaecal, pelvic, subcaecal, preileal and post-ileal positions (Williams et al, 1995; Sabiston et al, 2001; Schwartz et al, 1999). It is connected by a short mesoappendix to the lower part of the ileal ...
Authors: Kaul, Dhananjaya K. , Baez, Silvio , Nagel, Ronald L. Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Experiments were carried out to determine flow properties of oxygenated normal and abnormal blood (HbAA, HbAS, HbSS, HbSC, HbAC, HbCC and rat) using isolated artificially perfused rat mesoappendix microvasculature. Changes in arterial perfusion pressure (Ppa) and venous outflow (Fv) were recorded after the infusion of blood, and peripheral resistance unit (PRU) was calculated. In a series of experiments, pressure-flow recovery time (Tpf) was determined, and microphotography was done in selected experiments. Viscometry was carried out at a shear rate of 230 sec−1 In the perfused mesoappendix, HbSS and HbSC blood resulted in higher PRU as well as increase in …Tpf when compared to those for HbCC blood, though the latter was more viscous.

Theres definitely a pattern to the distribution: it is not the case that the appendix is a random glitch in the organization of the gut, but is maintained consistently in some lineages for as long as 80 million years, and is consistently lost in others.. The data are useful to have and provide considerable food for thought; where I disagree with the authors is in the interpretation of that data. I dont think purely morphological data give us enough information to resolve the issues they bring up.. Heres what the authors conclude from that distribution. The most parsimonious explanation is that the ancestral state of mammals was to lack an appendix, so that the majority of extant mammals are exhibiting the primitive, appendix-less state. The appendix then independently evolved 2-4 times, with the lineages that acquired it also marked by frequent secondary ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Raff on why did the ct not show my appendix: will not see rectum but most of large intestine will be seen
Now here comes the screwed up part! About 30 minutes later (after I already wrote an e-mail to Romys thesis adviser that he couldnt go into work because he will be getting his appendix removed that day), another doctor comes in. This doctor said something we could not believe. He asked us to confirm that Romy had a CAT scan taken for the same reason one year ago in February. We said yes. Then he kind of smiled and said that the previous doctor had looked at the February 2012 CAT scan by mistake and ordered the puss and appendix removal based on the FEBRUARY scan!!! It was only after they realized they were looking at the old CAT scan (which was supposedly just constipation!?), that they recognized how bad Romy was that day. The new CAT scan revealed a badly ruptured appendix. His appendix was ruptured so badly that they canceled the puss suction and the appendix removal. All the doctor could say was that the new CAT scan was very "messed up." Puss, scar tissue, and fluid everywhere. He said ...

A surgeon who accidentally removed a womans ovary instead of her appendix has been struck off after being branded a danger to patients.. Dr Lawal Haruna, 59, botched up three operations over the course of two years.. Patient B was treated by him when she was admitted for abdominal pain while he was working for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.. During the operation, one of her ovaries was removed leaving her appendix - which was causing her great pain - in situ. A tribunal heard how it was lucky she was not of child-bearing age as it could have affected her fertility.. Dr Haruna botched up two further operations - mistaking a lump of fat for an appendix in one case and a skin tag for a cyst in another.. Colleagues described the operations as poorly executed and never events.. Read more in the Daily Mail.. ...
Chimpanzees and other apes are our closest living relatives, and they all have an appendix that looks a lot like ours. So its reasonable to infer that our common ancestor 30 million years ago also had one.. But when Dr. Fisher researched the guts of other primates, the picture got blurrier. "In some cases its absent, but in other cases its spot-on looking like a human appendix," she said.. Some primate species fall somewhere in between these two extremes, with just a narrowed tip forming on the cecum. Dr. Fisher suspects that the appendix evolved several times in primates, but she cannot say what conditions favored its evolution. "Since the data is so poor, I think any trend would just be a lucky happenstance," she said.. Still, I wondered how such a dangerous and disposable organ could survive over evolutionary time. "We consider it maladaptive because we want to live to a very old age," Dr. Fisher said. "But from a strictly Darwinian view, it might not be.". Imagine a trait that helps an ...

Bowel cancer also known as colorectal cancer, is defined as a condition of the abnormal proliferation of cells in the colon, rectum, or vermiform appendix. Bowl is divided in 2 parts, the first part of the bowel, the small bowl, is involved with the digestion and absorption of food. The 2nd part, the large bowel which consist the the colon and rectum, is involved in absorption of water from the small bowel contents and broken down of certain materials in the feces into substances of which some of them to be re absorbed and reused by the body. Bowel cancer is relatively very common and slowly growing and progress cancer and in predictable way ...

Part of the OSGi R4 release, fragments are a very useful and powerful feature. A fragment is "a bundle that is attached to a host bundle", adding content to the target bundle. A fragment cannot have its own class loader nor a bundle activator and cannot override the information already present in the host. In short, through fragments, bundles can be extender with resources, classes and even manifest entries. To quote the spec again, a "...key use case for fragments is providing translation files for different locales. This allows the translation files to be treated and shipped independently from the main application bundle." ...

Patients who have ovarian or advanced peritoneal metastases from gastric cancer may profit from this strategy but additional evidence should be generated from ongoing collaborative studies at experienced treatment centers.. Further evaluation of neo-adjuvant intraperitoneal, systemic chemotherapy and cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC is required for patients with peritoneal metastases from gastric cancer..

A mucocele of the appendix is a descriptive term that refers to dilation of a lumen because of accumulation of a large amount of mucin. It is a rare lesion in all resected appendiceal tumors. Schistosomiasis of the appendix is also a rare lesion and is observed in 0.4% of all appendectomies performed [7]. Simultaneous giant mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix and intestinal schistosomiasis is extremely rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case ever to be reported in the world.. The characteristic pathological tissue response of appendiceal schistosomiasis is believed to be a granulomatous inflammatory reaction to the schistosomal ova. There is formation of epithelioid cell granulomas, predominantly in the submucosa and serosa, which ultimately undergo fibrosis. The final pathologic examination of the present case revealed calcified Schistosome eggs within the mucosa, submucosa of the appendix, small intestine, colon, and lymph nodes. Considering that mucoceles are caused by mucus ...

A rare, abnormally acting cancer, Pseudomyxoma Peritonei affects a persons abdomen through a build up of a mucus, jelly-like fluid termed mucin.

In most cases, ingested foreign bodies pass through the alimentary tract without incidence. But if the foreign body arrests in the cecum it can gravitate to the appendiceal orifice and enter the appendiceal lumen (Except in the event of a retrocecal appendix, where there is almost no risk for an object to enter the appendiceal lumen). The clinical presentation can vary from hours to years. Sharp, thin and pointed objects are more likely to cause perforations and other complications. In return, blunt foreign bodies are more likely to remain quiescent for longer periods and may cause appendicitis through obstruction of the appendiceal lumen the same way as appendicoliths. (3) However, many documented cases show that a foreign body in the appendix even after many years may not always lead to an authentic appendicitis either histologically or clinically. (2)(4) ...
Mucocele of the appendix is rare and represents only the tip of the iceberg of underlying benign and malignant pathological processes. Intraoperative diagnosis is also tricky because the inflammation of the appendix often hides the tumor. The preoperative diagnosis is essential to differentiate appendiceal mucocele from acute appendicitis as the treatment varies from open surgical versus laparoscopic surgical approach and for decreasing intraoperative and postoperative morbidity and mortality rate. We present three cases of appendiceal mucocele. The purpose of this paper is to make the physicians aware of the entity, its associations and the effect on management. This review will provide radiologic and pathologic correlation for the preoperative diagnosis of benign and malignant causative processes and differential diagnostic considerations.
