Adenocarcinoma of the small bowel accounts for only one per cent of all gastrointestinal malignancies. Duodenal adenocarcinoma accounts for half of all small bowel adenocarcinomas. The duodenum is divided into four segments: D1 (proximal horizontal 5 cm beginning with the 3-cm duodenal bulb), D2 (descending), D3 (distal horizontal), and D4 (ascending). The(More)
BACKGROUND The annual incidence of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) in the United States reportedly increased during the last quarter of the twentieth century. We investigated whether that increase has continued into the twenty-first century. METHODS We queried the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results database for all cases of IBC in women age 20 and(More)
BACKGROUND The benefit of adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) in elderly breast cancer patients is debatable. The purpose of this study was to evaluate trends in RT rates after breast-conserving surgery. METHODS Breast cancer patients ≥70 years treated from 2000 to 2009 were identified using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database. Patients(More)
Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a non-thermal injury tissue ablation technique that uses electrical pulses to cause cell death. IRE damages the endothelial cells of blood vessels; however these cells re-grow, and thus IRE does not result in permanent damage to blood vessels. We report the novel use of IRE for ablation of microscopically positive(More)
There is a known lesser incidence of primary hyperparathyroidism and parathyroid neoplasms in male patients. Any difference in the anatomic distribution between males and females has not been documented. Review of our institutional experience with 125 pathologically confirmed parathyroid adenomas (119) or carcinomas (six) from 2000 through 2012 was(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric adenocarcinoma is an aggressive disease with frequent lymph node (LN) metastases for which lymphadenectomy results in a survival benefit. In the US, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines recommend D2 lymphadenectomy or a minimum of 15 LNs retrieved. However, retrieval of only 15 LNs is considered by most international(More)
The introduction of screening for multiple high and moderate risk mutations in genes has resulted in a complex approach to patient care involving multiple disciplines. We sought to describe the feasibility of a single visit multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with an identified high/moderate risk gene mutation. Patients who presented to(More)
Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the most common pancreatic malignancy, and it occurs most commonly in the pancreatic head. It has a relatively low incidence; however it is a deadly disease and is the fourth most common cause of cancer deaths for males and females in the United States. Surgical resection in the form of pancreaticoduodenectomy is the mainstay of(More)
