This study compares the characteristics and outcomes among liver transplant recipients with radiographically apparent hepatocellular carcinoma lesions with α-fetoprotein (AFP)–producing tumors with those of recipients with tumors that do not produce AFP.
This multicenter study examines the preoperative risk factors for malignancy in resected mucinous cystic neoplasms and assesses outcomes of mucinous cystic neoplasm–associated adenocarcinoma.
Paul Olson et al perform a systematic review to characterize outcomes of palliative surgery for malignant bowel obstruction from peritoneal carcinomatosis to guide decision making about surgery and postoperative interventions for patients with terminal illness.
This study of medical records in a prospectively maintained database identifies factors associated with survival in patients with periampullary adenocarcinomas and compares survival between those having intestinal-type or pancreaticobiliary-type cancers originating from the duodenum, ampulla, or distal common bile duct with those having pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
Gangi et al compare the outcomes of breast-conserving therapy for patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) with those of patients with non-TNBC subtypes, specifically luminal A, luminal B, and v-erb-b2 avian erythroblastic leukemia viral oncogene homolog 2 (ERBB2) enriched.
This study evaluates the association between preoperative use of narcotics and postoperative outcomes in patients with Crohn disease.
This review summarizes advances on the use of molecular testing to improve the diagnosis and prognostication of thyroid cancer.
Donovan et al determine if variability in clinical presentation at diagnosis correlates with PI3K/Akt mutations in breast cancer stem and progenitor cells (BCSCs) and provides an early prognostic indicator of increased progression and metastatic potential. See the Invited Commentary by Calhoun.
This cohort study uses data on patients who underwent liver resection for hepatitis B virus–related hepatocellular carcinoma to develop a nomogram for preoperative estimation of microvascular invasion.
