Diagnosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis in laparoscopic vs. open surgery
Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery are less frequently diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis than patients undergoing open surgery. This finding can be read in a recent publication by drs. I. Thomassen and colleagues in the European Journal of Surgical Oncology, in which patients who underwent a resection for colorectal cancer between 2008 and 2012 were included.
Colorectal cancer, diabetes and survival: Epidemiological insights
This comprehensive review highlights the complexity of the association between diabetes, colorectal cancer (CRC) and patient survival. Several potential explanations have been proposed for the observed association between overall and CRC-specific survival and diabetes in CRC patients.This can be read in a recent review of Marjolein Zanders and colleagues in Diabetes & Metabolism.
Variation in screening mammography outcomes among pairs of radiologists
E. Klompenhouwer and colleagues found significant variations in screening outcomes among unique pairs of radiologists at non-blinded double reading of screening mammograms. In order to detect suboptimal results of screening pairs, it is important to monitor screening results on a local scale and to continuously update interval cancers at screening mammography programmes. This can be read in their ...
Hospital of diagnosis and referral for treatment in oesophageal cancer
In a recent study by M. KoŽter and colleagues published in European Journal of Cancer, the relationship between hospital of diagnosis and referral for a curative treatment was assessed and the referral pattern and its influence on overall survival in patients with resectable oesophageal cancer was explored. A strong relation between hospital of diagnosis and the chance of referring patients with o...
Chronic fatigue in Hodgkin lymphoma survivors
The prevalence rate of fatigue is much higher among HL survivors compared with an age- and sex-matched normative population, 43% versus 28%, even up to ten year after diagnosis. Sociodemographic and clinical factors were not associated with fatigue, only symptoms of depression and anxiety and comorbidity were related to high levels of fatigue. This might have implications for the diagnosis and tre...
Treatment and outcome of young patients with esophageal cancer
Young patients (≤50 years) with esophageal cancer more often have an advanced stage (both positive lymph nodes and distant metastasis) than older patients (>50 years). Younger patients also receive treatment more often than their older counterparts. However, both age groups show comparable 5-year relative survival rates. These findings are reported by Anna van Nistelrooij et al. in Journal o...
Higher age and comorbidity decrease chance on cystectomy
Katja Goossens-Laan and colleagues have shown that high age and serious comorbidity decreases the chance of undergoing a cystectomy for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). As cystectomy is associated with a better survival, independently from age, socio-economic status (SES) and serious comorbidity, it can be questioned whether cystectomy has been underutilized in elderly and in p...
Satisfaction with information provision among lymphoma patients
Satisfaction with received information among lymphoma patients was associated with better HRQoL at baseline (only for patients ≥2 years since diagnosis), but not at follow-up when corrected for baseline levels. Patients who were satisfied with the received information on both time points report better mental HRQoL. These conclusions can be read in a recent article by dr. Husson and colleague...
Performance of cancer registries: completeness and timeliness
In a recent publication in European Journal of Cancer, Roberto Zanetti et al. conclude that cancer registries should improve the practice of measuring their completeness regularly and should move from traditional to more quantitative methods, which could improve timeliness of data publication. These conclusions are based on a survey which was sent to general registries and specialised registries a...
Trends in esophageal cancer and lifestyle factors in 3 western countries
Findings from a study by S. Kroep et al. in the American Journal of Gastroenterology do not support the hypothesis that trends in obesity and other lifestyle-associated factors are important drivers of the increase in incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). This was investigated by comparing changes in the incidence of EAC and changes in lifestyle-associated factors between the United States...
