Neoplasms of whatever cell type or origin, occurring in the extraskeletal connective tissue framework of the body including the organs of locomotion and their various component structures, such as nerves, blood vessels, lymphatics, etc.
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 composed of bony tissue, whether normal or of a soft tissue which has become ossified. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in bones.
Neoplasms composed of tissues of the OVARY or the TESTIS, not neoplasms located in the ovaries or testes. Gonadal tissues include GERM CELLS, cells from the sex cord, and gonadal stromal cells.
Neoplasms composed of fatty tissue or connective tissue made up of fat cells in a meshwork of areolar tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in adipose tissue.
Neoplasms composed of nerve tissue. This concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the nervous system or its component nerves.
Neoplasms composed of connective tissue, including elastic, mucous, reticular, osseous, and cartilaginous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective tissue.
Neoplasms composed of vascular tissue. This concept does not refer to neoplasms located in blood vessels.
Neoplasms composed of fibrous tissue, the ordinary connective tissue of the body, made up largely of yellow or white fibers. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in fibrous tissue.
A connective tissue neoplasm formed by proliferation of mesodermal cells; it is usually highly malignant.
Neoplasms composed of muscle tissue: skeletal, cardiac, or smooth. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in muscles.
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites.

L-[1-11C]-tyrosine PET to evaluate response to hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer. (1/1415)

PET with L-[1-11C]-tyrosine (TYR) was investigated in patients undergoing hyperthermic isolated limb perfusion (HILP) with recombinant tumor necrosis factor alpha (rTNF-alpha) and melphalan for locally advanced soft-tissue sarcoma and skin cancer of the lower limb. METHODS: Seventeen patients (5 women, 12 men; age range 24-75 y; mean age 52 y) were studied. TYR PET studies were performed before HILP and 2 and 8 wk afterwards. The protein synthesis rates (PSRs) in nanomoles per milliliter per minute were calculated. After final PET studies, tumors were resected and pathologically examined. Patients with pathologically complete responses (pCR) showed no viable tumors after treatment. Those with pathologically partial responses (pPR) showed various amounts of viable tumors in the resected tumor specimens. RESULTS: Six patients (35%) showed a pCR and 11 patients (65%) showed a pPR. All tumors were depicted as hot spots on PET studies before HILP. The PSR in the pCR group at 2 and 8 wk after perfusion had decreased significantly (P < 0.05) in comparison to the PSR before HILP. A significant difference was found in PSR between the pCR and pPR groups at 2 and at 8 wk (P < 0.05). Median PSR in nonviable tumor tissue was 0.62 and ranged from 0.22 to 0.91. With a threshold PSR of 0.91, sensitivity and specificity of TYR PET were 82% and 100%, respectively. The predictive value of a PSR > 0.91 for having viable tumor after HILP was 100%, whereas the predictive value of a PSR < or = 0.91 for having nonviable tumor tissue after HILP was 75%. The 2 patients in the pPR groups with a PSR < 0.91 showed microscopic islets of tumor cells surrounded by extensive necrosis on pathological examination. CONCLUSION: Based on the calculated PSR after HILP, TYR PET gave a good indication of the pathological outcome. Inflammatory tissue after treatment did not interfere with viable tumor on the images, suggesting that it may be worthwhile to pursue TYR PET in other therapy evaluation settings.  (+info)

FDG and L-[1-11C]-tyrosine imaging of soft-tissue tumors before and after therapy. (2/1415)

This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship of PET using fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) or L-[1-11C]-tyrosine (TYR) with histopathologic findings in soft-tissue tumors, before and after therapy. Histopathologic parameters that were studied were tumor grade, mitotic rate, proliferation activity and amount of necrosis. METHODS: PET with either FDG or TYR was performed in 55 patients with a lesion suspected to be a malignant soft-tissue tumor. In 28 patients, a second PET study was performed after therapy. Metabolic rate of glucose consumption (MRglc) and protein synthesis rate (PSR) were calculated. Histologic parameters were obtained from a biopsy specimen that was taken just after the first PET study and from the tumor remnant that was resected after therapy. RESULTS: MRglc correlated with tumor grade (r = 0.71) and mitotic rate (r = 0.68) but not with proliferation or necrosis. After therapy, there was no longer a correlation with mitotic rate. PSR correlated with tumor grade (r = 0.53), mitotic rate (r = 0.73) and proliferation (r = 0.66). After therapy, correlation with mitosis and proliferation had improved, and a negative correlation was found between PSR and necrosis (r = -0.74). CONCLUSION: These results validate the use of both FDG and TYR to give an in vivo indication of histologic tumor parameters. However, FDG gives a better indication of tumor grade, whereas TYR is more accurate in predicting mitotic rate and proliferation, especially after therapy. FDG may therefore not be the most suited tracer for monitoring therapy. TYR might be more appropriate for that purpose.  (+info)

Subcutaneous sacrococcygeal myxopapillary ependymoma. (3/1415)

We report a case of myxopapillary ependymoma presenting as a primary tumor of the subcutaneous tissue in the sacrococcygeal region. The mass was large, well-encapsulated, lobulated, and multiseptated, with varying signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted MR images caused by hemorrhagic necrosis, blood degradation products, and calcification. Only a small viable portion enhanced after administration of contrast material. Multiple lobules formed from fibrous septa and dystrophic calcification also characterize this tumor.  (+info)

Lymphangiosarcomas in cats: a retrospective study of 12 cases. (4/1415)

Clinical, macroscopic, and histologic features of 12 lymphangiosarcomas in cats are described. Nine tumors were located in the subcutaneous tissue at the caudoventral abdominal wall (eight cats) or in the neck (one cat). The remaining three cats had lymphangiosarcomas around the cranial mesenteric artery (two cats) or precardial in the mediastinum (one cat). Macroscopically, the tumors were noncircumscribed, white, edematous, and intermixed with fat tissue. Histologic features varied from cleft-forming and cavernous growth to papilliform and solid patterns. Follow-up data were available for seven cats with subcutaneous lymphangiosarcomas. All these cats died or were euthanatized within 6 months after surgery because of poor wound healing, local recurrence, or distant metastases. The cats with abdominal or thoracic masses were either euthanatized at surgery or within 6 months after the first surgery because of recurrent chylothorax, chyloperitoneum, or distant metastases.  (+info)

Clinical and radiological aspects of idiopathic diabetic muscle infarction. Rational approach to diagnosis and treatment. (5/1415)

The systemic effects of diabetes mellitus are well recognised. The heart, kidney, central and peripheral nervous systems, and the distal parts of the limbs are often the site of end-organ damage resulting from ischaemia. Infarction of large muscle groups in the limb, not associated with gangrene, is uncommon. There have been few reported cases other than radiological descriptions of diabetic muscle infarcts. While previous reports have illustrated some of the clinical and radiological characteristics of this condition, the paucity of published cases makes it difficult to determine the most appropriate methods of diagnosis and treatment. During a five-year period we treated 14 patients with diabetes mellitus, aged from 32 to 59 years, who were referred to a musculoskeletal oncology service for suspected soft-tissue sarcoma, but were subsequently found to have a diabetic muscle infarct. Closed needle biopsy was performed in 13 without complications. In 12 patients, the symptoms resolved without surgical treatment.  (+info)

Color Doppler sonography of focal lesions of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. (6/1415)

We evaluated with color Doppler sonography 71 visible and palpable nodules of the skin and subcutaneous tissue from 51 patients. The nodules were classified as avascular (type I), hypovascular with a single vascular pole (type II), hypervascular with multiple peripheral poles (type III), and hypervascular with internal vessels (type IV). Of the 32 malignant nodules, 9% showed a type I pattern, 50% had a type III pattern, and 41% had a type IV pattern; of the 39 benign nodules, 86% showed a type I pattern and 14% had a type II pattern. The sensitivity and specificity of hypervascularity in malignant lesions were 90% and 100%, respectively, whereas the sensitivity and specificity of hypovascularity in benign lesions were 100% and 90%, respectively. The authors conclude that color Doppler sonography is able to increase the specificity of ultrasonography in the evaluation of nodular lesions of the skin.  (+info)

Pulmonary metastases from soft tissue sarcoma: analysis of patterns of diseases and postmetastasis survival. (7/1415)

OBJECTIVE: To report the patterns of disease and postmetastasis survival for patients with pulmonary metastases from soft tissue sarcoma in a large group of patients treated at a single institution. Clinical factors that influence postmetastasis survival are analyzed. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: For patients with soft tissue sarcoma, the lungs are the most common site of metastatic disease. Although pulmonary metastases most commonly arise from primary tumors in the extremities, they may arise from almost any primary site or histology. To date, resection of disease has been the only effective therapy for metastatic sarcoma. METHODS: From July 1982 to February 1997, 3149 adult patients with soft tissue sarcoma were admitted and treated at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. During this interval, 719 patients either developed or presented with lung metastases. Patients were treated with resection of metastatic disease whenever possible. Disease-specific survival was the endpoint of the study. Time to death was modeled using the method of Kaplan and Meier. The association of factors to time-to-event endpoints was analyzed using the log-rank test for univariate analysis and the Cox proportional hazards model for multivariate analysis. RESULTS: The overall median survival from diagnosis of pulmonary metastasis for all patients was 15 months. The 3-year actuarial survival rate was 25%. The ability to resect all metastatic disease completely was the most important prognostic factor for survival. Patients treated with complete resection had a median survival of 33 months and a 3-year actuarial survival rate of 46%. For patients treated with nonoperative therapy, the median survival was 11 months. A disease-free interval of more than 12 months before the development of metastases was also a favorable prognostic factor. Unfavorable factors included the histologic variants of liposarcoma and malignant peripheral nerve tumors and patient age older than 50 years at the time of treatment of metastasis. CONCLUSIONS: Resection of metastatic disease is the single most important factor that determines outcome in these patients. Long-term survival is possible in selected patients, particularly when recurrent pulmonary disease is resected. Surgical excision should remain the treatment of choice for metastases of soft tissue sarcoma to the lung.  (+info)

The enigma of desmoid tumors. (8/1415)

OBJECTIVE: To analyze patients with recurrent extremity desmoids, in whom the surgical therapeutic option was either major amputation or observation. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The biology and natural history of desmoid tumors are an enigma. These tumors invade surrounding structures and recur locally but do not metastasize. The morbidity of treating these tumors in the context of their relatively benign biology is uncertain. METHODS: Between July 1982 and June 1998, the authors treated and prospectively followed 206 patients with extremity desmoid tumors. All patients underwent standardized surgical resection, the surgical goal always being complete resection with negative margins. When tumors recurred, they were evaluated for reresection. Amputation was considered when resection was not possible because of neurovascular or major bone involvement, or in the presence of a functionless, painful extremity. RESULTS: During this period, 22 patients had disease that was not resectable without amputation. This was out of a total of 115 patients with primary disease and 91 patients with recurrent disease. All recurrences were local; in no patient did metastasis develop. In this group of 22 patients with unresectable disease, 7 underwent amputation and 15 did not. These 15 patients were followed, alive with disease, having no surgical resection. Four patients received systemic treatment with tamoxifen and nonsteroidal antiinflammatories, three received systemic cytotoxic chemotherapy, and two received both tamoxifen and chemotherapy. Six patients received no systemic treatment. The range of follow-up was 25 to 92 months. In all patients, there was no or insignificant tumor progression; in three patients who underwent observation alone, there was some regression of tumor. During follow-up, no patient has required subsequent amputation, and no patient has died from disease. CONCLUSIONS: In desmoid tumors, aggressive attempts at achieving negative resection margins may result in unnecessary morbidity. Function- and structure-preserving procedures should be the primary goal. In select patients, whose only option is amputation, it may be prudent to observe them with their limb and tumor intact.  (+info)

The oral cavity is an ideal place for microorganisms to grow. Many distinct bacterial groups live in the oral cavity, and some of these bacteria are considered to be part of the normal oral flora. Unfortunately, some of these common bacterial species can also be the cause of opportunistic infections (infections by species that are avirulent in healthy individuals but that can be fatal in patients with compromised immunity. It is important to be aware of the causes of common lesions found in the oral cavity so they can be properly diagnosed and treated. This basic-level course reviews the soft tissue lesions found in the oral cavity of adults and discusses their diagnosis and treatment. Common problems include inflammatory and infectious processes, degenerative processes, and abnormal growths ...

NEW COURSE The diagnosis of soft tissue tumors can be a significant challenge, even to the experienced surgical pathologist, due to the broad morphologic spectrum of mesenchymal tumors and histologic overlap among soft tissue tumors and non-mesenchymal neoplasms. Furthermore, shared immunohistochemical features as well as genetic alterations are common. While current classification schemes guide the organization of most soft tissue tumors based on the line of differentiation exhibited by the tumor cells, for many soft tissue tumors, the lineage is not obvious. This course will teach a pattern-based approach to the evaluation of soft tissue tumors, guided by the predominant cytomorphology (i.e., epithelioid, spindle cell, pleomorphic, round cell), with an emphasis on the integration of clinical findings and morphologic features, as well as the judicious application of immunohistochemistry and other ancillary tests, particularly FISH, in differential diagnosis. The goal is to provide a practical ...

N2 - Diagnosis of extremity soft-tissue tumors can be challenging. Characteristics of tumor margins can help precisely identify locally aggressive or non-aggressive behavior for surgical planning, but cannot differentiate benign from malignant lesions. Most malignant tumors can have inhomogeneous signals on T2-weighted images. Although a uniform signal on T2-weighted images can be a reliable indication of a benign lesion, a well-defined mass with homogeneous internal signal intensity does not definitively identify a benign lesion. Some common and distinctive soft-tissue lesions can have specific clinical and imaging features allowing a diagnosis without biopsy. These are known as determinate lesions. This illustrative report presents a diagnostic guide for extremity soft-tissue tumors based on tissue signal and morphological ...
Leesburg, VA, July 25, 2017-Better understanding of practical imaging techniques with regard to neonatal soft-tissue tumors can improve patient care, according to an article published in the July 2017 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). Neonatal soft-tissue tumors are congenital neoplasms discovered during the first month of life. Because of their rarity, these tumors often pose diagnostic challenges for clinicians and specialists, including radiologists. From an epidemiologic point of view, there has been no unified method of reporting neonatal soft-tissue tumors. As a result, the exact prevalence, sites of origin, and pathologic nature of the tumors are unknown, said the articles lead author, Dr. Richard Restrepo, of the Department of Radiology, Nicklaus Childrens Hospital, of Miami, Florida..

Soft tissue includes connective tissue, muscle, fat, nerves and blood vessels that perform important functions throughout the body. Benign tumors can potentially develop within any of these systems. Benign soft tissue tumors are more common, including lipomas (fatty tissue), hemangiomas (blood vessels) and leiomyomas (smooth muscles). These benign tumors require an accurate diagnosis and at times, removal to prevent progression.. The malignant form of soft tissue cancer, sarcoma, can also evolve from any of these structures, but is most commonly located in the extremities (arms and legs) and abdomen. Abdominal sarcomas can extend to involve nearby organs, requiring removal or presurgical treatment. Surgery is an important component of sarcoma treatment. At NorthShore, our cancer surgeons have expertise to treat this disease and work collaboratively with plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists. For extremity sarcomas, our fellowship trained surgeons focus on limb salvage ...

Multiple myeloma is from the existence of lytic bone tissue lesions usually. with MBD including bone tissue pain, lytic bone tissue lesions, pathologic fractures, and hypercalcemia. MM bone tissue lesions result not merely from the immediate sediment of multiple myeloma cells inside the bone tissue, but also in the discharge of soluble elements by both tumor as well as the bone tissue microenvironment which bring about arousal of osteoclast activity and bone tissue resorption. Typical radiographs from the skeleton are obtained following diagnosis of individuals with myeloma routinely. Unusual skeletal radiographs are discovered in a lot more than 80% of sufferers. The skeletal X-ray adjustments in multiple myeloma range between apparently normal bone fragments to extensive bone tissue lesions with concomitant pathological fractures [1]. Durie and Salmon discovered that the extant of bone tissue lesions correlated highly with tumor insert and prognosis and for that reason radiograph adjustments ...
A method is disclosed for treating benign conditions, such as enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids located in a patients throat or nasopharynx, or soft tissue lesions located in a patients oropharynx or larynx. According to the method, a space containing the patients nasopharynx, oropharynx or pharynx and larynx is isolated from the patients trachea and lungs using an inflatable cuff tracheostomy tube or nasotracheal tube inserted in the patients trachea. The cuff is inflated to occlude the trachea. The patient is placed in a supine position, whereupon at least a portion of the space containing the nasopharynx and/or oropharynx and larynx is filled with saline. An endoscope is then inserted into the space to view the operative site in which the tonsils or tissue lesion are to be treated. An electrosurgical instrument having an active tissue treatment electrode and a return electrode connected to an electrosurgical generator is then inserted into the space, either along side the endoscope or through the

The identification of soft tissue sarcoma relies on a combination of clinical examination, imaging, and laboratory analysis. Anyone with a suspected soft tissue sarcoma should be referred to a diagnostic centre for a triple assessment consisting of clinical history and physical examination, appropriate imaging and a tissue biopsy (where a small sample will be taken to be examined under a microscope).. Clinical examination can be used to assess the tumours relationship to surrounding structures. A tissue biopsy is the definitive test to distinguish between benign and malignant tumours and can provide further helpful information (the specific type of sarcoma and grade of the tumour i.e. reflecting of how quickly the cancer may develop). Imaging demonstrates a tumours relation to important adjacent structures but cannot always reliably distinguish benign from malignant tumours.. The gold standard and only definitive test is a tissue biopsy. Core needle biopsy is simple, safe, and accurate and can ...
Anthony T. Goode, PT/ATC, co-owner of ProActive Sports Rehab, recently completed Graston Technique M1-Basic Training and is now treating patients with GT.

The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of the GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function.. The technique also improves diagnostic treatment, increases patient satisfaction by achieving notably faster and better outcomes, speeds rehabilitation and ...
There is a need for outcome measurement tools which are able to provide accurate and reliable information regarding the efficiency and efficacy of therapeutic intervention of soft tissue injury e.g. ligament tear. Electrical activity within the body tissues has been shown to be influenced by the tissue state, and following injury, bioelectric changes have been demonstrated for example in bone healing and nerve regeneration. This project considers the relationship between the electrical potentials recorded from the skin surface and clinical recovery following a soft tissue lesion. The measurement of the skin potential is not new but the application and approach used is novel in that a non invasive differential skin surface potential is used instead of the traditional and invasive transcutaneous potential. The differential potential was initially investigated in non injured subjects in order to gain an understanding of its character and behaviour. Simultaneous monitoring of environmental, ...
The use of PRP for the treatment of a variety of soft tissue tendon and ligament injuries is rapidly expanding. After taking a sample of the patients blood, in minutes a portable filtration system separates blood plasma rich in platelets from red blood cells. This PRP, along with its associated growth factors, is then immediately injected via ultrasound guided techniques into the soft tissue lesions creating what some call a super-clot that serves to help create a biologic scaffold upon which the bodys own cells migrate. These cells produce new collagen fibrils along lines of tension in the structure being treated. Sometimes even used in conjunction with stem cell treatment, PRP is a fast, inexpensive treatment that uses the horses own cells and molecules to stimulate more rapid and stronger healing in a variety of structures.

Vaccination stimulated antigen-specific T cell responses in all subjects, which peaked after 3-4 vaccinations, but remained elevated in Arm C subjects. Also in Arm C, circulating melanoma cell levels (as detected by quantitative PCR) fell, and T cell lytic activity against autologous melanoma was induced. In HLA-A2+ subjects, CD8+ T cells that bound tetramers loaded with cP-derived melanoma antigenic peptides were found in the peripheral blood only in Arm C subjects. Of 2 subjects with active disease (both in Arm C), one had a partial clinical response, while the other, who exhibited diffuse dermal and soft tissue metastases, had a complete response. ...

High-grade soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogeneous, complex group of aggressive malignant tumors showing mesenchymal differentiation. Recently, soft tissue sarcomas have increasingly been classified on the basis of underlying genetic alterations; however, the role of aberrant DNA methylation in these tumors is not well understood and, consequently, the usefulness of methylation-based classification is unclear. We used the Infinium HumanMethylation27 platform to profile DNA methylation in 80 primary, untreated high-grade soft tissue sarcomas, representing eight relevant subtypes, two non-neoplastic fat samples and 14 representative sarcoma cell lines. The primary samples were partitioned into seven stable clusters. A classification algorithm identified 216 CpG sites, mapping to 246 genes, showing different degrees of DNA methylation between these seven groups. The differences between the clusters were best represented by a set of eight CpG sites located in the genes SPEG, NNAT, FBLN2, PYROXD2, ZNF217,

Considering the extreme histological heterogeneity of soft tissue sarcomas (STS), their management is an art of its own. Over the last decade the treatment of STSs has been slowly shifting towards a more individualized, histology driven tailored approach. With the availability of novel antineoplastic agents and the differential sensitivity of different subtypes of sarcomas to these drugs, we aim to provide some guidance in terms of optimal sequencing of therapies. Furthermore, we discuss some of the emerging targeted therapies currently evaluated for the palliative treatment of the more common and some of the very rare STS subtypes.. ...
Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare malignant soft tissue tumor of uncertain origin, and it has a strong propensity for metastasis to the lungs, bones and brain. We report upon an unusual case of ASPS, presenting as multiple lung nodules with no other detectable primary site, in a 44-year-old man. A fine needle aspiration of the nodules yielded scattered, discohesive cells, each containing an eccentrically displaced nucleus and prominent nucleolus, on a granular background. Tumor cells with numerous bared nuclei, and occasional sheets of epithelioid cells were also found. Under the cytological diagnosis of an unclassified epithelioid malignant tumor, resection of the lung nodules was performed. The histologic findings were consistent with ASPS, showing positive TFE3-nuclear immunoreactivity. There is limited literature concerning cytological findings associated with pulmonary ASPS: especially in cases where the primary site is unknown. Here, we present a cytological review of pulmonary ...

This study was performed to explore the relationship between tumor oxygenation and treatment outcome in human soft tissue sarcoma. Twenty-two patients with nonmetastatic, high-grade, soft tissue sarcomas underwent preoperative irradiation and hyperthermia and pretreatment measurement of tumor oxygenation. The 18-month actuarial disease-free survival was 70% for patients with tumor median oxygen pressure (pO2) values of ,10 mm Hg but only 35% for those with median pO2 values of , 10 mm Hg (P = 0.01). There were eight treatment failures; the first site of recurrence was lung in all patients. Median pO2 was 7.5 mm Hg for metastasizing tumors versus 20 mm Hg for nonmetastasizing tumors (P = 0.03). Potential mechanisms and implications for clinical trial design are discussed.. ...
The p53 and MDM2 genes were analyzed in 24 human soft tissue sarcomas (11 malignant fibrous histiocytomas and 13 liposarcomas). Alterations of p53, consisting of point mutations, deletions, or overexpression, were detected in one-third (8 of 24) of the sarcomas. MDM2 gene amplification was detected in another 8 tumors, but no tumor contained an alteration of both genes. Monoclonal antibodies reactive with the human MDM2 gene product were developed, and immunohistochemical analysis revealed nuclear localization and overexpression of MDM2 in those tumors with amplified MDM2 genes. These data support the hypothesis that p53 and MDM2 genetic alterations are alternative mechanisms for inactivating the same regulatory pathway for suppressing cell growth.. ...
A technique called regional hyperthermia (RHT) makes chemotherapy more effective and improves outcomes in patients with localized, high-risk soft tissue sarcoma, according to the results of a study recently published in the journal The Lancet.[1] These findings were initially presented on September 22, 2009 at Europes largest cancer congress, ECCO 15-ESMO 34, in Berlin.[2]. Soft tissue sarcomas are cancers that affect the connective and supportive tissues, which include bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fat, blood vessels, and fibrous tissues. Sarcomas are relatively uncommon, but when they do occur, they tend to affect children and young adults. The primary treatment for sarcoma is surgery; however, because of the difficulty in removing these tumors, they are often treated with radiation and chemotherapy as well. Survival for this disease varies depending on the location and size of the tumor. Patients who are considered high-risk typically relapse within two or three years.. Regional ...

I am a pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgeon. My practice consists of a majority of pediatric cases, many of which are nevus and soft tissue lesion cases. I have been in practice for 7 years, 2 years in academics and 5 years in hospital-based practice. I am currently the medical director of a childrens hospital cleft lip and palate team. My practice consists of approximately 75% pediatric patients and 25% adult patients. I excise pigmented nevi and other soft tissue lesions over 100 times per year. I remove larger nevi requiring serial excision perhaps 5-6 times per year. The largest nevi that require tissue expanders to recruit skin prior to excision are rarer, and I do perhaps only 2-3 per year. I do, however, have extensive, frequent experience with using tissue expanders for a variety of other reasons, such as breast reconstruction. The principles and practices of tissue expansion are the same, regardless of the reason for using them or the location.. Large, pigmented nevi historically ...
Soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogenous group of neoplasms with various histological subtypes. Up to now, no individual causal molecular markers for prognosis and therapeutic success have been identified. A tumorigenic connection between the oncogene product Mdm2 and tumor suppressor p53 is generally accepted, but their possible clinical relevance has not yet been investigated sufficiently in soft tissue sarcoma. In 86 primary soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities (RO-resected, T1/2 N0 M0), Mdm2 and p53 overexpression were investigated by immunohistochemistry. The results were adjusted to clinico-pathological characteristics and evaluated for their prognostic relevance by multivariate analysis. In Coxs multivariate analysis with stratification of Mdm2 to p53 results, we determined four groups which had different prognostic values for relapse-free and overall survival (Mdm2−/p53−|Mdm2−/p53+ |Mdm2+/p53−|Mdm2+/p53+). The most striking finding was a relative risk (rr) for overall survival of 18.77

Most musculoskeletal soft tissue tumors are benign, lipoma being the most common. Malignant soft tissue tumors may be difficult to clinically distinguish from benign.Scandinavian recommendations are that all lesions suspicious for sarcoma be referred to a sarcoma center. This has led to improved tumor control and less post-operative functional deficits.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can reliably diagnose lipomas, and further work-up is not necessary. Lipomas can be treated at the local hospital.All deep seated musculoskeletal tumors (under the muscle fascia) not unequivocally lipomas should be referred to a sarcoma center.All superficial (subcutaneous) musculoskeletal tumors larger than 5 cm and not unequivocally lipomas should be referred to a sarcoma center ...
Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added a new therapeutic to the armamentarium for oncologists treating certain patients with soft tissue sarcoma: a molecularly targeted therapeutic called olaratumab (Lartruvo). Specifically, it approved olaratumab for use in combination with the cytotoxic chemotherapeutic doxorubicin for treating patients diagnosed with types of soft tissue sarcoma for which an anthracycline chemotherapeutic would be an appropriate initial treatment and whose cancer cannot be cured with either radiation or surgery.. According to Richard Pazdur, MD, director of the FDAs Office of Hematology and Oncology Products and acting director of the FDAs Oncology Center of Excellence, This is the first new therapy approved by the FDA for the initial treatment of soft tissue sarcoma since doxorubicins approval more than 40 years ago.. Soft tissue sarcomas arise in soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles, tendons, fat, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves, and ...
Symptoms of Soft Tissue Sarcoma including 9 medical symptoms and signs of Soft Tissue Sarcoma, alternative diagnoses, misdiagnosis, and correct diagnosis for Soft Tissue Sarcoma signs or Soft Tissue Sarcoma symptoms.
Lipomas are the most common benign soft tissue tumors that may occur anywhere in the body, and are mostly found within the subcutaneous areas. However, compared to common inter-muscular lipomas, giant, deep-seated lipomas of the hip are even more infrequent and thus easily misdiagnosed. In this study, we presented an adult female patient with an unusually large, deep intermuscular lipoma in the left hip that led the initial misdiagnosis.. Due to the rare location, intermuscular giant lipomas are easily overlooked when making primary diagnosis upon admission. To differentiate from other soft tissue tumors, auxiliary examinations including ultrasonography, CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are needed, which may improve the diagnosis, as well as an appropriate staging of the tumor extension and involved structures. Ultrasonography of the lipomas is often the initial diagnostic procedure due to its availability and cost-effectiveness, when compared with CT and MRI. Generally, lipomas have been ...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare malignant soft tissue tumor in children. DFSP is characterized by a specific fusion of the platelet-derived growth factor β (PDGFβ) with the collagen type 1α1 (COL1α1) gene which renders these tumors responsive to targeted therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors, such as imatinib mesylate, as is reported in adults. In the current report, we describe the first small pediatric DFSP series, in which response to imatinib mesylate contributed to successful treatment outcome.. ...

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common malignant soft tissue tumor in children and is highly resistant to all forms of treatment currently available once metastasis or relapse has commenced. As it has recently been determined that the acetylcholine receptor (AChR) γ-subunit, which defines the fetal AChR (fAChR) isoform, is almost exclusively expressed in RMS post partum, we recombinantly fused a single chain variable fragment (scFv) derived from a fully human anti-fAChR Fab-fragment to Pseudomonas exotoxin A to generate an anti-fAChR immunotoxin (scFv35-ETA).While scFv35-ETA had no damaging effect on fAChR-negative control cell lines, it killed human embryonic and alveolar RMS cell lines in vitro and delayed RMS development in a murine transplantation model. These results indicate that scFv35-ETA may be a valuable new therapeutic tool as well as a relevant step towards the development of a fully human immunotoxin directed against RMS. Moreover, as approximately 20% of metastatic malignant melanomas

Angioleiomyomas are benign soft tissue tumors first described by Stout AP [3]. Such tumors originate from vascular smooth muscle (tunica media) [4] and comprise around 5% of all soft tissue tumors, of which tumors involving the upper arm represent ,1% [2]. Angioleiomyomas usually present at 40-60 years of age, in female patients. The lower extremities are involved in more than 2/3 of cases [2]. A benign nodule is ,2 cm in size [5] with pain as the presenting symptom in around 50% of cases [5]. These are well-circumscribed encapsulated tumors usually round or oval in shape. Microscopically, the lesion consists of numerous fine blood vessels of varying size surrounded by smooth muscle bundle [6]. The characteristic spindle-shaped cells have elongated cigar-like nuclei and eosinophilic cytoplasm. IHC results of spindle cells will be positive for SMA and vimentin, while endothelial cells in the vessel will stain positive for CD 34. It is postulated that the presence of neural elements is responsible ...

After wide local excision, 15 patients required primary soft tissue reconstruction with vascularized muscle transfer and four patients underwent free skin flap to enable wound closure as part of their primary surgery. Nineteen patients (44%) developed post-operative wound complications including 10 (23%) patients who required an additional surgical procedure. Four (27%) patients developed flap necrosis in a group of 15 who underwent primary vascularized soft ...
Soft tissue sarcomas and glioblastomas are two deadly tumors that are characterized by aggressive overproliferation, and regions of severe intratumoral nutrient and oxygen deprivation. The mechanisms by which tumors evade proliferation control signals and survive in a hostile microenvironment are active areas of investigation. This work describes two projects investigating loss of proliferation control in soft tissue sarcoma, as a result of Hippo pathway deregulation, and mechanisms of survival under stress in glioblastoma, as a result of decreased microRNA-124 (miR-124) levels. First, we demonstrate that the Hippo pathway is deregulated in soft tissue sarcoma patient samples, leading to overexpression of the Hippo effector YAP. YAP, a transcriptional coactivator, binds to TEAD proteins in the nucleus and controls the transcription of multiple pro-proliferation and anti-apoptosis targets, including the transcription factor FOXM1. Interestingly, we show that FOXM1 physically interacts with the TEAD/YAP

The standard of care for patients with advanced soft-tissue sarcoma is treatment with first-line chemotherapeutic agents such as doxorubicin. However, clinical response to these drugs is limited and is often accompanied by toxic side effects. Soft-tissue sarcomas are characterized by significant tumor hypoxia, which has been associated with chemotherapy resistance, metastasis, and poor prognosis, suggesting that targeting the hypoxic tumor microenvironment may be beneficial. Chawla and colleagues assessed the safety and efficacy of first-line treatment with doxorubicin in combination with TH-302, a prodrug that is preferentially activated under hypoxia to generate a cytotoxic alkylating active metabolite, in an open-label, single-arm phase II trial of 91 patients with advanced soft-tissue sarcoma. Compared with historical outcomes of response to doxorubicin treatment, patients receiving combination therapy exhibited a higher six-month progression-free survival (PFS) rate of 58%, a median PFS of ...

A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from certain tissues, like bone or muscle. There are 2 main types of sarcoma: bone sarcomas and soft tissue sarcomas. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop from soft tissues like fat, muscle, nerves, fibrous tissues, blood vessels, or deep skin tissues. They can be found in any part of the body. Most of them develop in the arms or legs. They can also be found in the trunk, head and neck area, internal organs, and the area in back of the abdominal cavity (known as the retroperitoneum). Sarcomas are not common tumors, and most cancers are the type of tumors called carcinomas ...
