BACKGROUND: Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare malignant disease. Adding of the Ki67 proliferation index to the PSOGI PMP classification provided two different subcategories of the extensive HG-PMP group (HG-PMP ≤15% and HG-PMP >15%) with different survival in a previous unicentric study. This study aims to carry out an external and multicentre validation of this new proposed classification. METHOD: It was a prospective analysis of samples from a historical and international cohort of patients...

Patients undergoing major surgery for gastrointestinal cancer are at high risk of developing or worsening malnutrition and sarcopenia. In malnourished patients, preoperative nutritional support may not be sufficient and so postoperative support is advised. This narrative review addresses several aspects of postoperative nutritional care in the setting of enhanced recovery programmes. Early oral feeding, therapeutic diet, oral nutritional supplements, immunonutrition, and probiotics are discussed. When postoperative intake is insufficient, nutritional support favouring the enteral route is recommended...

Despite the clear clinical significance of frailty in surgical populations, there is no consensus on how best to define or measure frailty, even within the geriatric literature. A diversity of measures exists to measure some or all these domains, but only research-focused tools have been validated in surgical populations. These tools are too resource-intensive for rapid, cost-effective, preoperative screening of entire populations considering elective surgery. This narrative review deals with the definition of frailty and the different assessment methods of the phenotypic definition and the accumulation of deficits definition...

INTRODUCTION: Anastomotic leakage is a severe complication after oesophageal resection with gastric conduit reconstruction. Poor perfusion of the gastric conduit plays an important role in the development of anastomotic leakage. Quantitative near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence angiography with indocyanine green (ICG-FA) is an objective technique that can be used for perfusion assessment. This study aims to assess perfusion patterns of the gastric conduit with quantitative ICG-FA. METHODS: In this exploratory study, 20 patients undergoing oesophagectomy with gastric conduit reconstruction were included...

BACKGROUND: In order for peritoneal metastases from a primary appendiceal mucinous neoplasm to occur, the wall of the appendix must perforate to allow mucus with tumor cells access to the peritoneal spaces. With progression the peritoneal metastases show a broad spectrum of tumor biology varying from indolent to aggressive activity. METHODS: The histopathology of peritoneal tumor masses was determined from the clinical material resected at the time of cytoreductive surgery (CRS)...
