Artificial Neural Networking Model for the Prediction of Early Occlusion of Bilateral Plastic Stent Placement for Inoperable Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma.

Related Articles Artificial Neural Networking Model for the Prediction of Early Occlusion of Bilateral Plastic Stent Placement for Inoperable Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma. Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech. 2018 Apr;28(2):e54-e58 Authors: Shao F, Huang Q, Wang C, Qiu L, Hu YG, Zha SY Abstract BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine whether the back-propagation artificial neural network (BP-ANN) model could be constructed to accurately in predicting early occlusion of bilateral plastic stent placement for inoperable hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCA). METHODS: A total of 288 patients from the An Hui provincial Hospital were randomly divided into the training cohort (80%) and the internal testing cohort…

Stent insertion for malignant superior vena cava syndrome: effectiveness and long-term outcome.

Related Articles Stent insertion for malignant superior vena cava syndrome: effectiveness and long-term outcome. Radiol Med. 2017 Aug;122(8):633-638 Authors: Niu S, Xu YS, Cheng L, Cao C Abstract PURPOSE: To determine the clinical effectiveness and long-term outcome of stent insertion for malignant superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From June 2010 to April 2016, 47 patients with malignant SVC syndrome were treated with stent insertion in our center. Data regarding the technical success, clinical success, and long-term outcome were collected and analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: SVC stent insertion was successfully performed in all patients. A total of 65 stents…

Managing the Unmanageable: A Two-Staged Palliative Resection to Control Life-Threatening Duodenal Bleeding Due to Recurrent Paraganglioma.

Related Articles Managing the Unmanageable: A Two-Staged Palliative Resection to Control Life-Threatening Duodenal Bleeding Due to Recurrent Paraganglioma. Am J Case Rep. 2018 Apr 02;19:386-391 Authors: Smucker LY, Hardy AN, O’Neil PJ, Schwarz RE Abstract BACKGROUND This report presents therapeutic decision-making and management of refractory, life-threatening duodenal bleeding in a young man with recurrent metastatic retroperitoneal paraganglioma. CASE REPORT The patient had been symptom free for 8 years after radioactive MIBG (metaiodobenzylguanidine) therapy. Failure of endoscopic or angiographic bleeding control led to urgent need to evaluate possible endocrine functional status, tumor curability, safety of incomplete resection, intra- and postoperative support…

Melanoma as a surprising solution to the puzzle of intestinal obstruction.

Related Articles Melanoma as a surprising solution to the puzzle of intestinal obstruction. An Bras Dermatol. 2016 Sep-Oct;91(5 suppl 1):95-97 Authors: Gajda M, Kamińska-Winciorek G, Grzesiak I, Wydmański J Abstract We present a case of a 71-year-old man with an advanced melanoma of the right colon. The final diagnosis was determined based on histopathological examination of the material collected during urgent laparotomy performed due to ileus. Although we considered the tumor to be a disseminated primary melanoma of the colon, the possibility of unknown primary origin could not be excluded. Palliative chemotherapy and radiotherapy reduced symptoms associated with the disease…

Bridging the Cultural Divide Between Oncology and Palliative Care Subspecialties: Clinicians' Perceptions on Team Integration.

Related Articles Bridging the Cultural Divide Between Oncology and Palliative Care Subspecialties: Clinicians’ Perceptions on Team Integration. Am J Hosp Palliat Care. 2018 Jul;35(7):978-984 Authors: Tartaglione EV, Vig EK, Reinke LF Abstract PURPOSE: Palliative care improves symptom burden, distress, patient and family satisfaction, and survival for patients with cancer. Oncology professional societies endorse the integration of palliative care into routine care for patients with advanced cancers. Despite this, cultural differences between medical subspecialties and the limited number of clinicians trained in palliative care lower the adoption of integrated care models. We assessed oncologists’ and palliative care clinicians’ perceptions about integrating…
