The Accordion Severity Grading System of Surgical Complications
TLDR
Current methods for reporting the severity of complications incompletely fulfill the needs of authors of surgical studies and a new system—the Accordion Severity Grading System—is presented. Expand
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans
TLDR
The authors' objective was to identify and analyze clinicopathologic factors for disease free survival in a large group of patients who were followed prospectively at a single institution. Expand
Left-sided Pancreatectomy: A Multicenter Comparison of Laparoscopic and Open Approaches
TLDR
In selected patients, LLP is associated with less morbidity and shorter LOS than OLP, and is appropriate for selected patients with left-sided pancreatic pathology. Expand
Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma, Version 2.2017, NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology.
TLDR
The NCCN Guidelines for Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma focus on diagnosis and treatment with systemic therapy, radiation therapy, and surgical resection, as well as on management of locally advanced unresectable and metastatic disease. Expand
Targeting Focal Adhesion Kinase Renders Pancreatic Cancers Responsive to Checkpoint Immunotherapy
TLDR
It is suggested that FAK inhibition increases immune surveillance by overcoming the fibrotic and immunosuppressive PDAC TME and renders tumors responsive to immunotherapy. Expand
Identification of the PGRMC1 protein complex as the putative sigma-2 receptor binding site
TLDR
The use of a novel photoaffinity probe, WC-21, to identify the putative sigma-2 receptor binding site as PGRMC1 should stimulate the development of unique imaging agents and cancer therapeutics that target the sigma -2 receptor/PGRMC1 complex. Expand
A multicenter analysis of distal pancreatectomy for adenocarcinoma: is laparoscopic resection appropriate?
TLDR
It is suggested that LDP is an acceptable approach for resection of PDAC of the left pancreas in selected patients with similar short- and long-term oncologic outcomes as compared with OD, with potentially shorter hospital stay. Expand
Cutaneous Desmoplastic Melanoma: Reappraisal of Morphologic Heterogeneity and Prognostic Factors
TLDR
The results indicate that distinguishing pure from combined forms of DM is clinically relevant for prognosis (pure forms being associated with longer disease-specific survival) and failure to make this distinction may account for conflicting reports in the literature on the biologic behavior and prognosis of DM. Expand
Clinicopathologic analysis of patients with adult rhabdomyosarcoma
TLDR
The objective of this study was to define the factors in patients with adult RMS that predict outcome, disease progression, and survival. Expand
Effect of steatohepatitis associated with irinotecan or oxaliplatin pretreatment on resectability of hepatic colorectal metastases.
TLDR
Severe steatohepatitis can be associated with preoperative administration of irinotecan or oxaliplatin, especially in the obese, and should be given to performing resections before commencing these agents and to obtaining preoperative biopsy in those who have received these agents. Expand
