Swallow, C.J., Strauss, D.C., Bonvalot, S. et al. Management of Primary Retroperitoneal Sarcoma (RPS) in the Adult: An Updated Consensus Approach from the Transatlantic Australasian RPS Working Group. Ann Surg Oncol 28, 7873–7888 (2021).
Synopsis: Consensus statements for the optimal management of patients with primary retroperitoneal sarcoma were updated in view of new understanding of histologic subtype-specific biology and therapeutic response. Patients should undergo investigation and treatment by an experienced multidisciplinary team at a sarcoma referral center.
Proposal for a New Pathologic Prognostic Index After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PINC)
May 19, 2022
Redegalli, M., Schiavo Lena, M., Cangi, M.G. et al. Proposal for a New Pathologic Prognostic Index After Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (PINC). Ann Surg Oncol 29, 3492–3502 (2022).
Synopsis: Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) tumor morphology is significantly altered by NACT. Perineural invasion, lymph node ratio, and stroma to neoplasia ratio are prognostic factors for neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT)-treated PDAC patients. The semi quantitative pathologic prognostic index predicts patients’ outcome after NACT followed by surgery.
