  • Clinicopathological indicators of survival among patients with pulmonary carcinoid tumor. [Journal Article]
  • AOActa Oncol 2018 Feb 20; :1-8
  • Vesterinen T, Mononen S, … Arola J
  • CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that PCs are uncommon tumors. When resected, the long-term survival is in general favorable. In this consecutive, single-institution cohort of patients, presence of metastatic disease, tumor size, histological subtype and Ki-67 index were associated with shorter disease-specific survival. As TC and AC have different clinical behaviors, the correct tumor classification at the time of diagnosis is a necessity.
  • Examining the Incidence and Presentation of Melanoma in the Cardiothoracic Transplant Population. [Journal Article]
  • JDJAMA Dermatol 2018 Feb 16
  • Puza CJ, Cardones AR, Mosca PJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Representing one of the largest reported studies of patients with CTT developing MM, our findings suggest that the CTT population experiences an incidence of MM similar to that of other solid organ transplant recipients and with a median of 2.5 years from transplant to melanoma diagnosis. While the small scale of our study prevents far-reaching conclusions, further study is warranted to better understand the incidence, timing, and clinical ramifications of melanomagenesis in the CTT population.
  • Resection of Intrathoracic Paraganglioma With and Without Cardiopulmonary Bypass. [Journal Article]
  • ATAnn Thorac Surg 2018 Feb 13
  • Gurrieri C, Butz JJ, … Sprung J
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this series, 73% of intrathoracic PGLs were functional and involved noradrenergic, mixed noradrenergic and dopaminergic, or pure dopaminergic secretion. Cardiac and pericardial paraganglioma resection may require cardiopulmonary bypass. Although intraoperative bleeding in most complex cases may be uncontrollable, as for 1 of our patients, those who survived hospital discharge had favorable long-term outcomes.
