microRNA-181a has a critical role in ovarian cancer progression through the regulation of the epithelial–mesenchymal transition
Ovarian cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths among women. Effective targets to treat advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) and biomarkers to predict treatment response are still lackingExpand
Comparative immunohistochemical studies of bcl‐2 and p53 proteins in benign and malignant ovarian endometriotic cysts
A number of histologic and epidemiologic studies have suggested an association between endometriosis and ovarian carcinoma. Some reports have described a transition from endometriosis to atypicalExpand
Role of FDG PET/CT in staging of recurrent ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States and has a high likelihood of recurrence despite aggressive treatment strategies. Detection and exactExpand
Fallopian tube and primary peritoneal carcinomas associated with BRCA mutations.
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to determine the incidence of BRCA mutations among Ashkenazi Jewish patients with fallopian tube carcinoma (FTC) or primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPC), to studyExpand
Laparoscopic management of early ovarian and fallopian tube cancers: surgical and survival outcome.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of laparoscopy for staging of early ovarian cancers. STUDY DESIGN Case series conducted at the University Hospital with 36 patients who had presumed early-stageExpand
PET/CT evaluation of cervical cancer: spectrum of disease.
The prognosis of invasive cervical cancer is based on the stage, size, and histologic grade of the primary tumor and the status of the lymph nodes. Assessment of disease stage is essential inExpand
Laparoscopic lymphadenectomy for gynecologic malignancies using ultrasonically activated shears: analysis of first 100 cases.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility, safety and utility of the ultrasonic shears for laparoscopic pelvic and para-aortic lymph node retrieval in the treatment of gynecologic cancers. METHODS DataExpand
Survival analysis of robotic versus traditional laparoscopic surgical staging for endometrial cancer.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the survival of women with endometrial cancer managed by robotic- and laparoscopic-assisted surgery. STUDY DESIGN This was a retrospective studyExpand
A case-controlled study of total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy versus radical abdominal hysterectomy in a fellowship training program
To determine whether total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (TLRH) is a feasible alternative to an abdominal radical hysterectomy (ARH) in a gynecologic oncology fellowship training program. WeExpand
The Incidence of Port-Site Metastases in Gynecologic Cancers
Objectives: To determine the incidence of port-site metastases in patients undergoing laparoscopic procedures for gynecologic cancers. Methods: The charts of patients treated by laparoscopy forExpand
