Depression has a stronger impact on the global QL of patients than anxiety; therefore, the use of an additional instrument is recommended for the assessment of depression in outpatients with colorectal cancer.
CT of internal hernias.
In a study of 13 cases of internal hernias, nine different types of internalHernias were found and the surgical and radiologic findings were correlated, suggesting early surgical intervention may be indicated to reduce the high morbidity and mortality rates.
Sentinel Node Mapping Guided by Indocyanine Green Fluorescence Imaging in Gastric Cancer
The data suggest that SN mapping guided by ICG fluorescence imaging might be useful for predicting the metastatic status in lymph nodes in cases of gastric cancer, especially those with cT1-stage cancer.
Image-Guided Liver Mapping Using Fluorescence Navigation System with Indocyanine Green for Anatomical Hepatic Resection
It is demonstrated here that near-infrared fluorescence imaging system is a novel and reliable intraoperative technique to identify hepatic segment and subsegment for anatomical hepatic resection.

Patients who underwent low anterior resection with ileostomy had significant reductions in physical and role functioning, which apparently improved after ilesostomy closure, and a temporary ileOSTomy should be created in selected patients with the highest risk of anastomotic leakage.
Gastric and Intestinal Phenotypic Marker Expression in Gastric Carcinomas and Its Prognostic Significance: Immunohistochemical Analysis of 136 Lesions
The present results indicate that the gastric and intestinal phenotypic marker expression pattern of tumors, determined by the combination of HGM, M UC6, MUC2 and CD10 expression, is prognostically useful for patients with gastric carcinoma.

The overall QOL of colorectal cancer patients became stabilized about three months after the operation, and stepwise regression analyses showed that preoperative performance status predicted various QOL scales one year following the operation.
Establishment and characterization of human pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell line in tissue culture and the nude mouse.

The result suggests that ADR has some favorable additional effect in L-TAE for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma, and the serum alpha-fetoprotein level decreased to a significantly greater extent in the group that received ADR than in the groups that did not.
Genetic changes in colorectal carcinoma tumors with liver metastases analyzed by comparative genomic hybridization and DNA ploidy
The authors investigated DNA copy number aberrations by using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) and DNA ploidy alterations by using flow cytometry (FCM) in patients with primary colorectal carcinoma (primary tumors).
