BACKGROUND Residual disease at the bronchial margin after resection of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) adversely affects survival. To ensure an R0 resection, thoracic surgeons commonly use intraoperative frozen section analysis of the bronchial margin. We hypothesize that frozen section of the bronchial margin is rarely positive and seldom changes(More)
Gastric cancer is the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide, and once spread to the peritoneum, has a 5-year survival of less than 5%. Recent years have demonstrated advances in the use of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) in combination with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) for the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis due to various(More)
Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a genetic disorder in which phagocyte dysfunction leads to recurrent infection. Persistent pulmonary infections sometimes require thoracic surgical intervention. We reviewed our 25-year experience to identify outcomes and prognostic factors associated with thoracic surgery in these patients. A retrospective(More)
The peritoneal surface is a frequent site of recurrence following surgery for gastric cancer. A systematic review and random effect analysis was undertaken to analyze current literature regarding the role of adjuvant intraperitoneal chemotherapy in gastric cancer. While pooled analysis supports the use of adjuvant IP chemotherapy in resectable gastric(More)
Immunotherapeutic treatment strategies including adoptive cell transfer (ACT) for metastatic melanoma are capable of mediating complete and durable responses, as well as partial responses and prolonged disease stabilization. Unfortunately, many patients ultimately develop progressive disease. The role of salvage metastasectomy in managing these patients has(More)
