Combined vascular and pancreatic resection improves long-term survival of patients suffering from ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head. This study was designed to compare the results of surgical resection in patients with pancreatic cancer with or without vascular resection. Late 10-year disease-free survival was considered as an indicator of(More)
The histologic examination of endoscopic biopsies or resection specimens remains a key step in the work-up of affected inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients and can be used for diagnosis and differential diagnosis, particularly in the differentiation of UC from CD and other non-IBD related colitides. The introduction of new treatment strategies in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine preoperative tumor-, patient-, and treatment-related factors that are independently associated with incomplete mesorectal excision. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Incomplete total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer is associated with increased local and overall recurrences. Factors predicting incomplete mesorectal excision have(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS The role of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) in Barrett's neoplasia is ill-defined, although it might provide a higher curative resection rate and better histologic assessment than endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). We aimed to assess efficacy, safety, and long-term results of ESD. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective(More)
The cytologic and histochemical data in a case of extensive peritoneal endometriosis are presented. The presence of macrophages heavily laden with blue and dark pigment (as demonstrated by May-Grünwald-Giemsa, Perls and Fontana stains) and scattered non-neoplastic endometrial cells in hemorrhagic ascitic fluid indicated a diagnosis of peritoneal(More)
For several years, the lack of consensus on definition, nomenclature, natural history, and biology of serrated polyps (SPs) of the colon has created considerable confusion among pathologists. According to the latest WHO classification, the family of SPs comprises hyperplastic polyps (HPs), sessile serrated adenomas/polyps (SSA/Ps), and traditional serrated(More)
Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) metastases represent at this moment the only accepted indication of liver transplantation (LT) for liver secondaries. Between 1984-2007, nine (1.1%) of 824 adult LTs were performed because of NET. There were five well differentiated functioning NETs (four carcinoids and one gastrinoma), three well differentiated non functioning(More)
OBJECTIVES Assessment of proliferation by the Ki-67 labelling index (Ki67-LI) is an important parameter of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour (pNET) prognosis on resection specimens. Ki67-LI values for grading are not fully established on endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). The aim of the study was to determine the accuracy of(More)
Although evidence suggests an inverse relationship between microsatellite instability and p53 alterations in colorectal cancer, no study has thoroughly examined the use of p53 immunohistochemistry in phenotyping colorectal cancers. We investigated the value of p53 immunohistochemistry in microsatellite instability-positive colorectal cancers prescreening(More)
AIM Data on quality control of the pathologic evaluation of total mesorectal excision (TME) specimens are scarce. We aimed to assess differences between evaluation by local pathologists participating in PROject on CAncer of the REctum (PROCARE; a Belgian improvement project on rectal cancer) and by a review panel of experts. METHOD Based on photographic(More)
