This study aimed to understand clinicopathological characteristics of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) and correlation between pathologic features and clinical outcome. We used 76 cases diagnosed as primary GISTs during January 2007 to July 2017 at Army Institute of Pathology, Thailand. Clinical, survival, and pathological data were collected and analyzed. Ages of the...

CUSUM charts in the quality control of colon cancer lymph node analysis: a population-registry study

The most important determinant of survival in patients with colon cancer is the presence or absence of regional lymph node metastases. This factor is consistently associated with long-term and disease-specific survival. Cumulative summation of differences (CUSUM) charts can help to discriminate abnormalities that cannot be explained by the general variability of a process. We...

The risk factors for benign small bowel obstruction following curative resection in patients with rectal cancer

So far there have been limited studies about the risk factors for benign small bowel obstruction (SBO) after colorectal cancer surgery. This study aimed to determine the factors affecting the development of benign SBO following curative resection in patients with rectal cancer. Patients (3472) receiving curative resection of rectal cancer at the Department of Colorectal Cancer...

Assessment of expression of interferon γ ( IFN-G ) gene and its antisense ( IFNG-AS1 ) in breast cancer

The role of long non-coding RNAs has been extensively appreciated in the contexts of cancer. Interferon γ-antisense RNA1 (IFNG-AS1) is an lncRNA located near to IFN-γ-encoding (IFNG) gene and regulates expression of IFNG in Th1 cells. In the present study, we evaluated expression of IFNG and IFNG-AS1 in 108 breast samples including tumoral tissues and their adjacent non-cancerous...

Comparative study between colonic metallic stent and anal tube decompression for Japanese patients with left-sided malignant large bowel obstruction

Surgical management of malignant bowel obstruction carries with high morbidity and mortality. Placement of a trans-anal decompression tube (TDT) has traditionally been used for malignant bowel obstruction as a bridge to surgery. Recently, colonic metallic stent (CMS) as a bridge to surgery for malignant bowel obstruction, particularly left-sided malignant large bowel obstruction...
