MicroRNA profiles discriminate among colon cancer metastasis. PLoS One 9(6): e96670. (2014) TAp63 suppress metastasis via miR-133b in colon cancer cells. (2013) Loss of has-miR-337-3p expression is associated with lymph node metastasis of human gastric cancer. Sir, We read with interest the article by Kim et al (2014), highlighting important challenges in(More)
BACKGROUND The role of systematic aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy (SAPL) at second-look surgery in early stage or optimally debulked advanced ovarian cancer is unclear and never addressed by randomised studies. METHODS From January 1991 through May 2001, 308 patients with the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics stage IA-IV epithelial(More)
PURPOSE To compare the detection rate (DR) and bilateral optimal mapping (OM) of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in women with endometrial and cervical cancer using indocyanine green (ICG) versus the standard technetium-99m radiocolloid ((99m)Tc) radiotracer plus methylene or isosulfan blue, or blue dye alone. METHODS From October 2010 to May 2015, 163 women(More)
Laparoscopic surgery has been demonstrated as a valid approach in almost all gynaecologic procedures including malignant diseases. Benefits of the minimally invasive approach over traditional open surgery have been well demonstrated in terms of minimal perioperative morbidity and reduced postoperative pain and hospital stay duration, with consequent quick(More)
