The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze the long-term effectiveness of combined chemoradiation as the definitive treatment of locally advanced cancers of the cervical esophagus. Patients received high-dose external beam radiotherapy and concurrent cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Some patients received intraluminal brachytherapy as a boos...
We evaluated the efficacy of low-dose all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) plus minimal chemotherapy for induction in newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL). Furthermore, we compared its long-term outcome with or without the addition of intravenous arsenic trioxide (ATO) in post-remission therapy. From January 2004 to September 2011, a total...

OHCA patients undergoing on-admission CA had a very favourable postdischarge survival. Patients with OHCA due to ACS had better survival to discharge at 5-year follow up than patients with OHCA due to other causes.
A 49-year-old man was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in May 2005. Chemotherapy was started with 60 mg/day cisplatin iv drip (from days one to three), 2 mg topotecan (TP) hydrochloride iv drip (from days one to four), and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) AiDi injection for anti-tumor.

TAAAR in chronic type B dissection carries a substantial risk of early adverse outcomes. The results could be well alleviated with cases directed towards specialized regional and supra-regional centers. Although the endovascular approaches offer relatively low mortality and morbidity, there is a lack of long-term data and guidelines on their use. T...
We describe here a two-yr-old boy with biliary RMS successfully treated by chemotherapy and LT. The child presented with obstructive jaundice at 20 months of age. A mildly vascularized, non-calcified, partially cystic lesion was visualized in the left hepatic lobe. Solid infiltration of the common bile duct and of both left and right hepatic ducts ...
COPD is a multi-component disease that is not sufficiently reflected by FEV1 alone. We studied in patients with very severe COPD, which dimensions of the disease, including co-morbidities, dominate prognosis. In patients with FEV1

The purpose of this work was to study the demographics and survival of patients diagnosed with sinonasal adenocarcinoma (SNAC) within the time period of 1973 to 2009 using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Result (SEER) database. A retrospective cohort study using the U.S. National Cancer Institute's SEER registry was performed to study the d...
We report a case of a mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma developed in a colorectal adenocarcinoma with lymph node and liver metastases exclusively emanating from the neuroendocrine carcinoma component. The patient underwent right hemicolectomy and postoperatively received chemotherapy with cisplatin and etoposide and subsequent high-dose induction...
