Bochdalek hernia is the most common type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. It appears frequently in infants but rarely in adults. We present the case of a 50-year-old female han patient with tremendous left-sided congenital posterolateral diaphragmatic hernia (Bochdalek hernia) who also has a pair of supernumerary breasts and pulmonary hypoplasia of the(More)
BACKGROUND Lung is a common organ of metastases in patients with primary breast cancer. Pulmonary metastasis of primary breast cancer is usually considered as a systemic disease, however, the systemic approaches have achieved little progress in terms of prolonging survival time. In contrast, some studies revealed a probable survival benefit of pulmonary(More)
Distinguishing between multiple primary lung cancers and metastatic tumors is often difficult when the tumor histology is same. Since genomic instability is a common feature of cancer, we hypothesized that independently arising neoplasms in an individual patient would exhibit measurable genomic variation, enabling discrimination of tumor lineage and(More)
PURPOSE Lumbar posterior ring apophysis fracture (PRAF) is an uncommon disorder frequently accompanied by lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Over the years, there have constantly been published studies concerning this disorder. Due to its rarity, there is lack of an agreed treatment strategy, and lots of different opinions exist, including the choice of(More)
BACKGROUND The "seed and soil" hypothesis emphasizes the importance of interactions between tumor cells and their microenvironment. CAFs (Cancer associated fibroblasts) are important components of the tumor microenvironment. They were widely involved in cancer cells growth and metastasis. Fibroblasts may also play a role in inflammatory disease. The(More)
Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) may act as a prognostic biomarker in human cancers. This study is prepared to clarify the prognostic value of Cav-1 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). All eligible articles from China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Pubmed, Highvire, and Science Direct systems were incorporated into this study. We extracted the(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective study involving 502 lung cancer patients who had received pulmonary resection from 2009-2013 was conducted in order to compare the clinical characteristics of patients whose diagnosis was detected by low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) and computed radiography (CR). METHODS Two groups were established, based on the method of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Diagnostic modes may play an important role in treatments, but minimal information is available regarding their relationship in patients with lung cancer. This study may contribute to decision making in clinics and public health centers. METHODS The records of 505 hospitalized surgical patients with lung cancer at the Department(More)
Recently, we had the honor of reading a meta-analysis article published in Tumor Biology which was completed by Jie et al. Because of our interest in the correlations between microRNAs (miRs) and human cancer prognosis, we carefully read the entire article. Jie et al. put forward a standpoint that deregulation of miR-100 in cancerous tissues could(More)
BACKGROUND The distinguishing of intrapulmonary metastatic tumors from multiple primary lung cancers is difficult but of great importance for the therapeutic management and prognosis of these patients. METHODS We used genomic DNA analyzed by six microsatellites (D7S1824, D15S822, D2S1363, D10S1239, D6S1056, and D22S689) with PCR to identify discordant(More)
