  • Extra-Pelvic Endometriosis: A Systematic Review. [Review]
    J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2019Andres MP, Arcoverde FV, … Kho RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Extra-pelvic endometriosis, traditionally thought to be rare, have been reported in a considerable number of cases. Heightened awareness and clinical suspicion of the disease, and multi-disciplinary approach is recommended to achieve prompt diagnosis and optimize patient outcomes. At this time, there are no comparative studies to provide recommendations regarding optimal diagnostic methods, treatment options and outcomes for endometriosis involving extra-pelvic sites.
  • Total pleural coverage followed by lung transplantation in patient with lymphangioleiomyomatosis. [Journal Article]
    Gen Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2019Kim DH, Ahn HY, … Son J
  • Tuberous sclerosis complex lymphangioleiomyomatosis (TSC-LAM) is a rare disease, which may develop an intractable pneumothorax. Chemical or mechanical pleurodesis is a general management to prevent recurrence of pneumothorax, rendering it difficult to later dissect the pleura and control intraoperative bleeding. Since total pleural coverage (TPC) alternative to pleurodesis has been firstly report…
  • Treatment of Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma. [Journal Article]
    Klin Onkol 2019; 32(5):333-337Levý M, Boublíková L, … Šimša J
  • Malignant mesothelioma is a highly malignant disease that most often occurs in the pleura of the thoracic cavity, followed by the peritoneum, pericardium, or tinea vaginalis testis. Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) accounts for 10-15% of all mesotheliomas. The most significant risk factor for MPM is exposure to asbestos. There is no specific symptomatology, and imaging (computed tomography…
  • Surgical outcomes and clinical courses of solitary fibrous tumors of pleura. [Journal Article]
    Niger J Clin Pract 2019; 22(10):1412-1416Yanik F, Karamustafaoglu YA, Yoruk Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: SFTp is an uncommon benign neoplasm but it can have malignant features. Even in the case of recurrence, the main treatment is total surgical excision. Oncologic treatments can be tried in unresectable and metastatic cases. VATS can be used in surgical total excision for small diameter and appropriate tumors. Understanding the nature of these tumors, immunohistochemical, and genetic studies may be a guide in future.
  • Mini-Open Lateral Corpectomy for Thoracolumbar Junction Lesions. [Journal Article]
    Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2019Huangxs S, Christiansen PA, … Yen CP
  • CONCLUSIONS: The morbidities associated with traditional posterior or anterior approaches to thoracolumbar junction pathologies have led to a growing interest in minimally invasive alternatives. The mini-open lateral approach allows for a safe and efficacious corpectomy and reconstruction for thoracolumbar junction pathologies. Thorough understanding of the anatomy, particularly of the diaphragm, is critical. This approach will have expanded roles in the management of patients with thoracolumbar neoplasms, fractures, infections, deformities, or degenerative diseases.

  • Types of surgery post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy for pleural mesothelioma. [Journal Article]
    Expert Rev Respir Med 2019; :1-6Kuribayashi K, Doi H, Kijima T
  • Introduction: The surgical arm of the Mesothelioma and Radical Surgery (MARS) trial involved a multimodal approach, with combined therapy consisting of chemotherapy, complete gross resection, and radiation therapy. However, the MARS trial did not compare surgery with chemotherapy, and the survival and quality of life outcomes of this trial's surgical arm were inferior to those of the non-surgical…
