AbstractConventional forceps biopsy (CFB) is the most popular way to screen for gastric epithelial neoplasia (GEN) and adenocarcinoma of gastric epithelium. The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy between conventional forceps biopsy and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).Four hundred forty-four patients who finally undertook ESD in our hospital were enrolled from Jan 1, 2009 to Sep 1, 2015. We retrospectively assessed the characteristics of pathological results of CFB… 

Clinicopathological characteristics and prognostic factors for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: a population-based study

Multivariate analysis found that elderly age, male, diagnosis at 2008–2011, higher grade, tumor size, and advanced AJCC stage were independent factors for poorer prognosis; while API/AI (American Indian/AK Native, Asian/Pacific Islander) race, married, chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy were independent favorable factors in both CSS and OS.

Accuracy of core needle biopsy for histologic diagnosis of soft tissue sarcoma

The biopsy technique of choice in soft tissue sarcoma (STS) diagnosis is controversial and percutaneous core needle biopsy (CNB) leads to faster diagnosis while reaching the same histological accuracy and is less burdensome for patients.

Comparative analysis of differences between preoperative endoscopic biopsy and postoperative pathological examination for diagnosis of gastric intraepithelial neoplasia

Comparison of preoperative endoscopic biopsy (PEB) and postoperative pathological examination (PPE) for diagnosis of gastric intraepithelial neoplasia (GIN) shows that PEB did not fully reflect the lesions of GIN.

Clinicopathological characteristics and outcome of primary sarcomatoid carcinoma of the gallbladder

S-1-based chemotherapy may be a selectively efficient regimen to prolong the survival of GBSC patients, and timely radical operation together with postoperative chemotherapy is important.

Sessile serrated adenomas versus conventional adenomas. Different polyps in different populations?

It also seemed that patients with diabetes mellitus and/or hypertension developed conventional adenomas more frequently than SSA/Ps; on the contrary, females were at higher risk of developing S SA/Ps than conventionalAdenomas.

Importance of Gross Type in Patients With T2 Gallbladder Cancer

The gross types of T2 gallbladder cancer may be more important prognostic factor than tumor location, and the gross type and lymph node metastasis were the only significant prognostic factors for DFS and OS.

Cost and effectiveness of microwave ablation versus video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical resection for ground-glass nodule lung adenocarcinoma

MWA had similar rates of 3-year OS, LPFS, and CSS for patients with GGNs and a dramatically lower cost and shorter hospital stay compared with VATS and the cost during hospitalization and the length of hospital stay.

Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection vs. Surgery for Superficial Esophageal Squamous Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

This meta-analysis provides evidence concerning the improved morbidity and mortality outcomes in superficial esophageal squamous cancer patients undergoing ESD as compared to ESO and may aid in developing clinical awareness and assisting best practice guideline development.

Mean Corpuscular Volume as a Prognostic Factor for Patients With Habitual Alcohol or Tobacco Use After Esophagectomy

Pretreatment MCV was correlated with survival in ESCC patients after esophagectomy, however, its prognostic value might only exist in patients with alcohol or tobacco consumption, and not in patients without alcohol or Tobacco consumption.

Comparing outcomes for endoscopic submucosal dissection between Eastern and Western countries: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Eastern countries show better ESD outcomes compared to Western countries, and availability of local ESD expertise and regional outcomes should be considered for decision making to treat gastrointestinal lesions with ESD.



A randomized trial to determine the diagnostic accuracy of conventional vs. jumbo forceps biopsy of gastric epithelial neoplasias before endoscopic submucosal dissection; open-label study

The diagnostic accuracy of GENs was significantly increased not by the use of jumbo forceps biopsy but by increasing the number of biopsies before endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD).

Diagnostic accuracy of forceps biopsy versus polypectomy for gastric polyps: a prospective multicentre study

Complete removal by an experienced endoscopist of all epithelial gastric polyps larger than 5 mm after thorough individualised risk-benefit analysis is recommended.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection as a treatment for gastric noninvasive neoplasia: a multicenter study by Osaka University ESD Study Group

Over 40% of the noninvasive gastric neoplasia specimens were determined to have adenocarcinoma, and the ESD-related complication rate was relatively low, therefore, ESD was useful and may be a therapeutic option for gastric NIN.

Staging accuracy of esophageal cancer by endoscopic ultrasound: a meta-analysis and systematic review.

EUS has excellent sensitivity and specificity in accurately diagnosing the TN stage of esophageal cancer and performs better with advanced (T4) than early (T1) disease.

Endoscopic Ultrasound for Preoperative Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: a Meta-Analysis

EUS has good diagnostic accuracy for staging ESCC, which has better performance in T1 sub-staging (T1a and T1b) and advanced disease (T4).

Endoscopic ultrasound does not accurately stage early adenocarcinoma or high-grade dysplasia of the esophagus.

Where has the tumor gone? The characteristics of cases of negative pathologic diagnosis after endoscopic mucosal resection.

In the case of pathologically negative findings at EMR, tumors might have been small enough to have been removed by the previous forceps biopsy, however, the possibility of sampling error or of a different location should be considered.

Efficacy of Endoscopic Ultrasonography for Determining Clinical T Category for Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma: Data From 1434 Surgical Cases

EUS is in general feasible for classifying clinical T category for ESCC, however, EUS should be used with caution for discriminating between Tis, T1a, and T1b disease, as well as T4 disease.

Risk factors suggesting malignant transformation of gastric adenoma: univariate and multivariate analysis.

It is suggested that a diagnosis of high-grade dysplasia in forceps biopsy material should be considered an absolute indication for ESP or EMR.

The Vienna classification of gastrointestinal epithelial neoplasia

The differences between Western and Japanese pathologists in the diagnostic classification of gastrointestinal epithelial neoplastic lesions can be resolved largely by adopting the proposed terminology, which is based on cytological and architectural severity and invasion status.
