This study assesses the effectiveness of both preoperative chemoradiation with cisplatin and fluorouracil or carboplatin and paclitaxel on recurrence-free survival and overall survival in patients with esophageal cancer.
This study uses disease registry data to examine the association between time intervals from the completion of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy to surgical procedure and rates of pathologic complete responses in patients with esophageal cancer.
This narrative review summarizes recent advances in the management of localized pancreatic cancer, including the rationale for neoadjuvant treatment sequencing and new diagnostic biomarkers in development.
This study compares the readability and accuracy of patient-oriented online resources for pancreatic cancer by treatment modality and website affiliation.
This case series describes outcomes for patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer treated with preoperative chemotherapy, and the details of how collaborating Oncology Study Groups coordinated and conducted the study.
This study reports on the Oncology NSQIP National Cancer Center Collaborative collecting 3 additional case characteristics representing greater operative complexity and risk with the aim to improve patient risk prediction and case-mix adjustment.
A man aged 54 years presented to the emergency department with a 1-month history of generalized weakness and bilateral lower extremity swelling that had progressed to his upper abdomen. What is your diagnosis?
This review summarizes advances on the use of molecular testing to improve the diagnosis and prognostication of thyroid cancer.
This study examines whether surgeon-specific complication rates reported in the Surgeon Scorecard correlate with several perioperative quality measures.
The study evaluates trends in transfusion rates for major abdominal oncologic resections to assess changes in recent clinical practice (given the accumulating evidence of the deleterious effects of blood transfusion).
This cohort study evaluates the changes in survival associated with patterns of receipt of initial breast surgery for patients with stage IV breast cancer in the United States, with particular attention to women who survived at least 10 years.
This retrospective database study aims to determine the lesion and patient characteristics that would most strongly predict a histologically negative result for an excised lesion after a biopsy specimen had positive margins.
This cohort study investigates the associations between socioeconomic variables and surgical resection in patients with early-stage pancreatic cancer.
Using a cohort of patients at 13 major US institutions, this study defines clinicopathological variables associated with recurrence-free and overall survival after adrenocortical carcinoma resection and proposes nomograms for individual risk prediction.
This case series uses review of medical records to report on potential immunohistochemical prognostic molecular markers to determine their prognostic and therapeutic utility for patients with vascular leiomyosarcomas.
