BACKGROUND Surgical resection for sarcoma lung metastases has been associated with improved overall survival (OS). METHODS Patients who underwent curative-intent resection of sarcoma lung metastases (2000-2016) were identified from the US Sarcoma Collaborative. Patients with extrapulmonary metastatic disease or R2 resections of primary tumor or metastases were excluded. Primary endpoint was OS. RESULTS Three hundred and fifty-two patients met inclusion criteria. Location of primary tumor was tru...

Intraoperative pelvic drains are often placed during low anterior resection (LAR) to evacuate postoperative fluid collections and identify/control potential anastomotic leaks. Our aim was to assess the validity of this practice. Patients from the US Rectal Cancer Consortium (2007–2017) who underwent curative-intent LAR for a primary rectal cancer were included. Patients were categorized as receiving a closed suction drain intraoperatively or not. Primary outcomes were superficial surgical site i...

Introduction null Management of retroperitoneal and lateral pelvic lymph nodes (RLPN) in rectal cancer remains unclear. With total neoadjuvant therapy (TNT), more patients have radiologic complete clinical response (rCR). We sought to evaluate the impact of radiographic persistent RLPN after neoadjuvant therapy on survival. null Materials and methods null Patients with rectal adenocarcinoma with isolated RLPN metastasis, who received neoadjuvant therapy before surgery were included from the Unit...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the optimal timing of direct acting antiviral (DAA) administration in patients with hepatitis C-associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergoing liver transplantation (LT). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In patients with hepatitis C (HCV) associated HCC undergoing LT, the optimal timing of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) administration to achieve sustained virologic response (SVR) and improved oncologic outcomes remains a topic of much debate. METHODS The United States HC...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prognostic role of metastatic lymph node (LN) number and the minimal number of LNs for optimal staging of patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). BACKGROUND: Prognosis relative to number of LN metastasis (LNM), and minimal number of LNs needed to evaluate for accurate staging, have been poorly defined for pNETs. METHODS: Number of LNM and total number of LN evaluated (TNLE) were assessed relative to recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (...

Background null The optimal level of pedicle ligation during proctectomy for rectal cancer, either at the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery or the superior rectal artery, is still debated. null Objective null The objective was to determine if superior rectal artery ligation portends equivalent technical or oncologic outcomes. null Design null This was a retrospective analysis of a rectal cancer database (2007-2017). null Settings null The study was conducted at six tertiary referral cente...

BACKGROUND The surgical approach to treat Bismuth type I and II hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCCA) has been a topic of debate. We sought to characterize whether bile duct resection (BDR) with or without concomitant hepatic resection (HR) was associated with R0 margin status, as well as define the impact of HR+BDR versus BDR alone on long-term survival. METHODS Patients who underwent curative-intent HR+BDR for HCCA between 2000 and 2014 were identified from a multi-institutional database. Perioperat...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Perioperative therapy is a favored treatment strategy for gastric cancer. We sought to assess utilization of this approach at safety net hospitals (SNH) and tertiary referral centers (TRC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients in the US Safety Net Collaborative (2012-2014) with resectable gastric cancer across five SNH and their sister TRC were included. Primary outcomes were receipt of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and perioperative therapy. RESULTS Of 284 patients, 36% and...
