- Patterns of local recurrence after curative resection and reconstruction for oropharyngeal and oral cancers: Implications for postoperative radiotherapy target volumes. [Journal Article]Head Neck 2019HN
- CONCLUSIONS: Most recurrences developed at the anastomosis marginal site, while none developed in the flap tissue.
- Chondroblastomas presenting in adulthood: a study of 39 patients with emphasis on histologic features and skeletal distribution. [Journal Article]Histopathology 2019H
- CONCLUSIONS: CB in patients >20 years of age more frequently involves the short bones of the hands/feet and flat bones compared to those arising in their younger counterparts. A subset may harbor extensive serpiginous or psammomatous calcification rather than the classic chicken-wire pattern. Though the overall local recurrence rate in adulthood is roughly 10%, all three patients with recurrent disease had tumors involving flat bones suggesting that tumors arising in these sites may behave more aggressively.

- PROMIS Function Scores Are Lower in Patients Who Underwent More Aggressive Local Treatment for Desmoid Tumors. [Journal Article]Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019CO
- CONCLUSIONS: Patients treated with local modalities (surgery and/or radiation, with or without additional systemic therapy) did not experience improved EFS as compared with those treated without local modalities; this was the case for both the primary and the recurrent tumor cohorts. However, PROMIS function scores were lowest among patients who underwent two or more surgical interventions and among those treated with surgery and radiation at any time, suggesting that more aggressive local treatment may be associated with poorer long-term functional outcomes. Prospective collection of patient-reported outcomes data at multiple time points will allow for more direct correlations between treatment modality and impact on function and will help to elucidate the ideal management strategy for these benign but often-symptomatic tumors.
- A rare case of rectal cancer with perianal metastasis: a case report. [Journal Article]World J Surg Oncol 2019; 17(1):149WJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Metastatic cancer should be ruled out when treating left-sided colon cancer with anal fistula. Local excision is one possible treatment for metastatic anal fistula cancer.
- Quantitative margin assessment of radiofrequency ablation of a solitary colorectal hepatic metastasis using MIRADA RTx on CT scans: a feasibility study. [Journal Article]BMC Med Imaging 2019; 19(1):71BM
- CONCLUSIONS: Co-registration using MIRADA is reproducible and potentially a valuable tool in defining technical success. Feasibility of co-registration of pre- and post-ablation CT scans is suboptimal if scans are not acquired concordantly. Co-registration may potentially aid in the prediction of LR after percutaneous ablation.
- Outcomes of extraskeletal vs. skeletal Ewing sarcoma patients treated with standard chemotherapy protocol. [Journal Article]Clin Transl Oncol 2019CT
- CONCLUSIONS: Patients with localized extraskeletal ES have comparable OS outcomes to patients with skeletal ES utilizing the standard VDC-IE chemotherapy. However, extraskeletal patients are at significantly higher risk for local recurrence.
- Safety and oncological efficacy of bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve lymph-node dissection after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: a propensity-matched analysis. [Journal Article]Esophagus 2019E
- CONCLUSIONS: RLN LND can be safely performed in ESCC patients who had undergone nCRT, ultimately resulting in an improved local control, and should be practiced as part of the surgical routine.

- Colorectal Cancer in the Elderly Patient: The Role of Neo-adjuvant Therapy. [Journal Article]Open Med (Wars) 2019; 14:607-612OM
- CONCLUSIONS: The effect of pathological downstaging amounted to 58.8%, including cPR. The pathologic complete remission occurred in 8.8% of cases.The outcomes of neoadjuvant therapy can be achieved when this treatment is associated with correct surgical technique with TME and the prognosis is defined by an anatomopathological examination performed according to Quirke's protocol.
