Lateral spreading tumours (LSTs) are superficial spreading neoplasms now increasingly diagnosed using chromoscopy. The clinicopathological features and safety of endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) for LSTs which can be either G-type "aggregate" and F-type "flat," has yet to be clarified in Western cohorts. This study is the largest progressive analysis of LSTs within the west. F-type lesions have a higher malignant potential than G-type and have a propensity for the right colon. G-type LSTs show low rates of sm3 invasion. EMR is a safe and effective therapy for LSTs, despite their large size.

    Recently, superficial elevated colorectal tumors have been increasingly diagnosed after improvements in endoscopic instruments and techniques. However, their biological characteristics remain obscure and it is difficult to predict malignant potential. The aim of this study is to clarify the...

    Background: The high frequency of local recurrence occurring after endoscopic piecemeal resection (EPMR) for large colorectal tumors is a serious problem. However, almost all of these cases of local recurrence can be detected within 1 year and cured by additional endoscopic resection. We report...

    Background: Upper urothelial cancer (UUC), i.e. transitional cell carcinomas of the renal pelvis and the ureter, occur at an increased frequency in patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). Defective mismatch repair (MMR) specifically characterizes HNPCC-associated tumors,...

    The aim of this case study is to explore the role of palliative care and the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach for the management of malodour from malignant fungating tumours. Nurses in my practice area in the UK rarely see them, find them particularly difficult to manage and the...

    Over the last decade there has been a dramatic increase in the number of patients identified with pancreatic cysts. This increase has been largely attributed to advances in imaging. The majority of these cysts represent benign neoplasms; however, a significant fraction of these are pre-malignant...

    Background: Surgical enucleation of submucosal tumors (SMTs) of the esophagus (mostly leiomyomas) is indicated when either the tumors are symptomatic or their biological behavior is unclear. The classic approach is a thoracotomy, but tumor enucleation can now also be performed via thoracoscopy...

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic potential of virtual endoscopy (VE) and to compare it with axial CT slices, multiplanar reconstructions (MPR), minimal intensity projections (mIP), and bronchoscopy in patients diagnosed with bronchogenic carcinoma.
