Advanced Endoscopy Techniques May Be Safe Alternative to Surgery for Most Difficult-to-Remove or Large PolypsJuly 26, 2016
Most patients with large or difficult-to-remove colorectal polyps have a lower incidence of cancer than previously thought; therefore, more advanced endoscopic techniques that spare the colon may be a better and safer alternative to a traditional operation in some cases.
Prophylactic Gynecologic Resections Increase Risk for Aggressive Uterine Cancer in BRCA Gene Mutation CarriersJuly 19, 2016
Women who carry the BRCA1 mutation are at increased risk for serous/serous-like endometrial carcinoma after risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy. Yet uncertainty exists over the need to perform a full hysterectomy in these women.
A single dose and a beam of light can kill up to 95% of cancer cells in 2 hours, according to preclinical research on a novel approach to tumor resection. Photodynamic cancer therapy may be a treatment option for people whose tumors are inoperable or hard-to-reach.
A newly created tumor-specific fluorescent molecule combined with an imaging system guided surgeons to removing additional tumors not palpable or visible without fluorescence in patients with ovarian cancer.
A gene expression pattern in the noncancerous tissues surrounding estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer is associated with lower 10-year survival rates.
A new injectable agent causes cancer cells in a tumor to fluoresce, potentially enabling surgeons to locate and remove all of a cancerous tumor on the first attempt.
Incidence of Undetected Cancer in Patients Undergoing Gynecologic Surgery for a Benign Condition Higher Than EstimatedDecember 04, 2015
Researchers in Massachusetts sought to determine how frequently cancer is diagnosed in women after undergoing gynecologic surgery for a problem believed to be benign.
A new surgical tool that uses light to ensure surgeons removed all of a cancerous tumor was found to correlate well with traditional pathologists' diagnoses, according to a clinical study showing that the tool could soon enable reliable, real-time surgical guidance.
Benchmarks for surgical management of colorectal cancer were identified in a recent study that compared patient outcomes associated with synchronous and sequential colorectal and liver resections in patients with stage IV colorectal cancer.
Researchers have made a significant advance in the use of photodynamic therapy to combat ovarian cancer in laboratory animals, using a combination of techniques that achieved complete cancer cell elimination with no regrowth of tumors.
Robotic Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Thrombectomy Successfully Removes Thrombus Associated With Kidney CancerAugust 28, 2015
Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombectomy is typically is performed via a large open incision, but recently the procedure was successfully performed robotically, using only seven small incisions.
Not all women with lymph node-positive breast cancer treated with chemotherapy before surgery need to have all underarm nodes removed, new research indicates.
Researchers have successfully tested a new tool that will help surgeons better distinguish cancerous breast tissue from normal tissue, which should lower the mount of repeat procedures needed.
Surgical resection is the most effective method for a cancer cure; however, the procedure may not remove the entire tumor, leading to local recurrence. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have established a new strategy in which near-infrared (NIR) imaging is used to help visualize the entire tumor.
Meeting the challenges of the significant morbidity, functional impairment, and alterations in body image in patients undergoing this surgical resection.
