The purpose of the present study was to investigate the risk factors associated with lymph node metastatic recurrence in patients with N0 esophageal cancer after Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy based on the detection of Mucin 1 mRNA and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) C mRNA. The subjects were 82 patients with pN0 esophageal cancer who underwent(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the complications, long-term survival, and management lessons learned after surgical resection for patients with primary tumors of the trachea and carina and locally advanced lung cancer directly infiltrating the carina. A retrospective study was performed by our department on 32 patients undergoing(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of lymph node micrometastasis (LNMM) based on the detection of MUC1 mRNA, and assess the impact of these micrometastases on prognosis after resection of pathologic N0 (pN0) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The subjects were 89 patients who underwent complete resection of pN0 NSCLC at our(More)
To investigate the prevalence of lymph node micrometastasis (LNMM) on the basis of the detection of MUC1 mRNA, and assess the impact of these micrometastases on disease-free interval after resection of pathologic N0 (pN0) esophageal squamous cell cancer (ESCC). The subjects were 93 patients who underwent complete resection of pN0 ESCC at our department(More)
Brain-specific metastasis occurs frequently in lung cancer, and the mechanism is still unclear. The present study was designed to investigate the correlation between CXCR4 expression and brain-specific metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer. The brain metastatic tumors and lung cancer tissues from 32 patients with solitary brain metastasis of non-small(More)
BACKGROUND Even if complete resection was performed, some patients with esophageal carcinoma still develop tumor recurrence. This study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of adjuvant radiotherapy after modified Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy on preventing lymph node recurrence of the mid-thoracic esophageal carcinoma. METHODS Three hundred sixty-six(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the correlation between early postoperative tumor relapse with lymph node micrometastasis in the patients with pN(0) esophageal cancer. METHODS Using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), one hundred and sixty-six regional lymph nodes obtained from forty-three patients with esophagus cancer without invasion of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To control the postoperative local recurrence is one of the critical factors to improve prognosis of patients with esophageal carcinoma. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of modified Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy plus adjuvant radiotherapy for local control of stage IIA squamous cell carcinoma in the mid-thoracic esophagus.

microRNAs play important roles in numerous biological processes, including tumorigenesis, by modulating critical gene transcripts. In the present study, the role of microRNA‑802 (miR‑802) in lung cancer was investigated. The results of the quantitative polymerase chain reaction revealed that expression levels of miR‑802 were significantly upregulated in(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE About one half of the patients with esophageal cancer may recur within 3 years after operation, but the recurrence pattern is still unclear. This study was to investigate the recurrence patterns of esophageal cancer after Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy. METHODS Clinical data of 196 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the middle third(More)
