BACKGROUND Application of the principles of total mesorectal excision to colon cancer by undertaking complete mesocolic excision (CME) has been proposed to improve oncological outcomes. We aimed to investigate whether implementation of CME improved disease-free survival compared with conventional colon resection. METHODS Data for all patients who(More)
For years, the outcome of colorectal cancer (CRC) surgery has been inferior in Denmark compared to its neighbouring countries. Several strategies have been initiated in Denmark to improve CRC prognosis. We studied whether there has been any effect on postoperative mortality based on the information from a national database. Patients who underwent elective(More)
INTRODUCTION Colorectal cancer is a common malignant disease, caused by different aetiologies and molecular pathways. Heterogeneous results have been published regarding the association of microsatellite instability and clinicopathological features. The aim of this study was to compare clinicopathological features of microsatellite unstable tumours with(More)
AIM we analysed the influence of standardization of colon cancer surgery with complete mesocolic excision (CME) on the quality of surgery measured by the pathological end-points of number of harvested lymph nodes, high tie of supplying vessels, plane of mesocolic resection and rate of R0 resection. METHOD One hundred and ninety-eight patients with colonic(More)
PURPOSE Recent evidence has demonstrated the importance of dissection in the correct tissue plane for the resection of colon cancer. We have previously shown that meticulous mesocolic plane surgery yields better outcomes and that the addition of central vascular ligation produces an oncologically superior specimen compared with standard techniques. We aimed(More)
OBJECTIVE A retrospective review of all diagnosed cases of esthesioneuroblastoma registered in Denmark between 1978 and 2000 was carried out in order to obtain epidemiological data and optimize national treatment guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty cases were verified histologically and included in the analysis Epidemiological and histopathological(More)
The aim was to determine the prevalence of Helicobacter heilmannii-like organisms in human gastric biopsies and the associated histology compared with that of Helicobacter pylori-bearing gastric biopsies. Furthermore, the feasibility of culturing H. heilmannii was examined. A consecutive series of 727 gastric biopsies from 650 patients were prospectively(More)
Sarcomas of the great vessels are rats. We report a case of a metastasizing sarcoma of the aorta. The patient was an 82-year-old male who presented with a subcutaneous tumour, which was initially classified as a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Autopsy revealed a polypoid sarcoma of the luminal aspect of the aortic arch with metastases to several organs. By(More)
The density profile of microvessels (MVD) has recently emerged as a prognostically independent morphological marker of various malignancies, including carcinoma of the breast. MVD-scoring may thus afford the pathologist the opportunity to identify subsets of early stage breast cancer patients, which may benefit from adjuvant therapy. Reproducibility studies(More)
