OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the clinical results of temporary stenting followed by radiation and/or chemotherapy in patients with inoperable malignant tracheobronchial strictures.

CONCLUSION. Temporary stenting combined with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy may be clinically effective in the palliative treatment of patients with malignant tracheobronchial strictures. Stent placement may serve as an effective bridge to radiation and/or chemotherapy, allowing the latter to consolidate durable relief of obstructing symptoms by reducing tumor burden. Furthermore, our treatment strategy may increase patients' quality of life by reducing stent-related complications.

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to compare the clinical effectiveness of metallic stent placement for relief of gastric outlet obstruction caused by gastric carcinoma and pancreatic carcinoma.

MATERIALS AND METHODS. A total of 207 patients with gastric outlet obstruction caused by inoperable gastric carcinoma (n = 147) or pancreatic carcinoma (n = 60) underwent metallic stent placement.

RESULTS. Technical success of metallic stent placement was achieved in all patients. Clinical success was achieved in 97% and 93% of patients with gastric and pancreatic carcinoma, respectively (p = 0.286). The overall complication rate did not differ significantly between the gastric (29%) and pancreatic (23%) carcinoma groups (p = 0.441). Stent collapse was significantly more frequent in the gastric carcinoma group (11%) than the pancreatic carcinoma group (2%) (p = 0.027), whereas serious complications, including gastrointestinal bleeding and intestinal perforation, occurred more frequently in the pancreatic (7%) than the gastric (1%) carcinoma group (p = 0.026). The cumulative survival period was significantly longer in the gastric carcinoma (median, 153 days) than the pancreatic carcinoma (median, 90 days) group (p = 0.041), but cumulative stent patency did not differ significantly between the gastric carcinoma (median, 350 days) and pancreatic carcinoma (median, 385 days) groups (p = 0.415).

CONCLUSION. Metallic stent placement was clinically effective in the palliative treatment of gastric outlet obstruction in patients with gastric and pancreatic carcinoma. The two groups differed significantly in the rates of stent collapse and serious complications and patient survival after stent placement.

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to compare, focusing on colonic perforation and stent migration, the clinical safety and efficacy of dual-design expandable colorectal stents with flared ends with those of stents with bent ends in the treatment of patients with malignant colorectal obstruction.

SUBJECTS AND METHODS. A total of 122 patients with malignant colorectal obstruction underwent implantation of dual-design stents with flared (n = 69) or bent (n = 53) ends.

RESULTS. Stent placement was technically successful in 116 of 122 patients (95.1%), 65 of 69 patients (94.2%) with flared-end stents and 51 of 53 patients (96.2%) with bent-end stents (p > 0.05). Clinical success was achieved within 2 days in 61 of 65 patients (93.8%) with bent-end stents and in 46 of 51 patients (90.2%) with flared-end stents (p > 0.05). Complications included seven cases of colonic perforation (6%), seven cases of stent migration (6%), three cases of tumor overgrowth (2.6%), four cases of severe rectal pain (3.4%), and four cases of bleeding (3.4%). There were no significant differences between the rates of colonic perforation and stent migration in the two groups (6.2% vs 5.9%), and the overall complication rates were similar (p > 0.05).

CONCLUSION. Dual-design expandable colorectal stents with flared ends and those with bent ends are equally safe and effective, having similar perforation and migration rates.

Colorectal adenocarcinoma, the most common tumor that metastasizes to the ovary, is often difficult to distinguish from primary ovarian mucinous adenocarcinoma (POMA). Obtaining the correct diagnosis is difficult but crucial to treatment and prognosis.


We evaluated the immunohistochemical (IHC) expression of cytokeratin 7 (CK7), cytokeratin 20 (CK20), CDX2, CEA, MUC2, MUC5AC and -methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) in 22 POMAs and 41 metastatic colorectal adenocarcinomas (MCAOs) involving ovaries.


MCAOs, in contrast with POMAs, were almost always negative for MUC5 (97.6%), often negative for CK7 (82.9%), focal or diffuse positive for CDX2 (73.2%), diffuse positive for CK20 (65.9%), focal or diffuse positive for MUC2 (51.2%), diffuse positive for CEA (41.5%) and negative for AMACR (41.5%). We therefore considered CK7 (–), CK20 (diffuse +), CDX2 (+) and MUC2 (+) to be colonic markers and regarded cases with expression of more than two colonic markers as MCAO, those with no expression of colonic markers as POMA and those with expression of one colonic marker as indeterminate. Using CK7/CK20/CDX2/MUC2, 82.5% of the cases were correctly classified, 6.3% were misclassified and 6.3% were indeterminate.


CK7, CK20, CDX2 and MUC2 IHC staining is a useful adjunctive diagnostic tool to differentiate MCAOs from POMAs, in addition to clinical history and gross and microscopic findings.
