Introductionnbsp Gastrointestinal stromal tumors GISTs are rare and fall into the category of non-epithelial tumors of the gastrointestinal tract , involving the stomach at a higher percentage (70 %). The purpose of this study , through a retrospective analysis of the observed cases , is to obtain data on the incidence , survival curve identification of prognostic and predictive parameters .The goal is to collect data concerning the natural history of GIST , 65% of patients were female, 35…

Which Laparoscopic Treatment in Pancreatic Pathology?
TLDR
Treatment indications that are well codified with the possibility of extending their applications to perform both derivative and resective interventions are obtained to diagnose and treat patients with pancreatic neoplasm.
THE RADICAL ANAL TRANS EXCISION IN THE INITIAL NEOPLASM OF THE RECTUM
TLDR
The local root resection offers the advantages of a surgery without all the complications involved in a major resection and is indicated in a limited series of cases, although the percentage of clinical observations of early diagnosis is increasing in cost.
CURRENT PROGNOSTIC FACTORS IN COLORECTAL CANCER
Introduction: Colorectal carcinoma is one of the main causes of mortality due to neoplasia in all Western countries and with high technological development. There are 150,000 in Europe and 30,000 in
LOCAL RECURRENCES AFTER ULTRA LOW RESECTION OF THE RECTUM
TLDR
It is highlighted how a surgery that includes a correct excision of the middle rectum provides a high prevention of recurrences in addition to the correct approach to the neoplasm, as well as how an ultralow resection can help diagnosis.
CONGENITAL ANOMALIES OF THE KIDNEY AND URINARY TRACT NEOPLASMS AND IN THE ELDERLY.
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of surgery and technologies in Catania and its applications in the field of regenerative medicine from 1950 to the present day.
Which Surgical Strategy in Sepsis from Retro Peritoneal Colic Perforation
In the last decade, attention has been paid to severe abdominal infections which, due to their severity and difficulty in treatment, cause death in 30-60% of cases.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors: review on morphology, molecular pathology, prognosis, and differential diagnosis.
TLDR
GISTs usually occur in older adults and rarely in children in the second decade and are believed to originate from interstitial cells of Cajal or related stem cells; small intestinal tumors behave more aggressively than gastric tumors with similar parameters.
Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors in Patients With Neurofibromatosis 1: A Clinicopathologic and Molecular Genetic Study of 45 Cases
TLDR
None of the 16 tumors from 15 patients had a KIT exon 9, 11, 13, or 17 or PDGFRA exon 12 or 18 mutation as is typically seen in sporadic GISTs, indicating that GISTS in NF1 patients have a different pathogenesis than sporadic Gists.

Gastrointestinal (GI) stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors specific to the GI tract, generally defined as KIT (CD117)-positive tumors with a characteristic set of histologic
Diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors: A consensus approach.
TLDR
Key elements of the consensus are the defining role of KIT immunopositivity in diagnosis and a proposed scheme for estimating metastatic risk in these lesions, based on tumor size and mitotic count, recognizing that it is probably unwise to use the definitive term "benign" for any GIST, at least at the present time.
Gastric Stromal Tumors in Carney Triad Are Different Clinically, Pathologically, and Behaviorally From Sporadic Gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors: Findings in 104 Cases
TLDR
The Carney triad gastric stromal tumor is different clinically, pathologically, and behaviorally from sporadic gastric GISTs and showed distinctive features: female predilection, young patient age, epithelioid cell predominance, multifocality, frequent lymph node metastasis, serial tumor occurrence, and unpredictable behavior.
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors--value of CD34 antigen in their identification and separation from true leiomyomas and schwannomas.
TLDR
It is shown that gastrointestinal mesenchymal tumors can be immunophenotypically divided in categories that correlate with light microscopically defined diagnostic entities, namely typical leiomyomas, schwannomas, and GIST, most cases of the latter representing tumors of primitive meschymal cells that are CD34 positive.
Pediatric gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
We should desist using RECIST, at least in GIST.
TLDR
Choi response criteria are reproducible, more sensitive, and more precise than RECIST in assessing the response of GISTs to imatinib mesylate and should be incorporated routinely into future studies of Gist therapy.
