Systematic review of resection of primary midgut carcinoid tumour in patients with unresectable liver metastases

BACKGROUND: Surgery for small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs) is limited by metastatic disease in most patients. However, resection of the primary lesion alone has been advocated in patients with unresectable liver metastases. The present systematic review investigated the value of surgical resection of the primary lesion in patients with unresectable metastatic disease.

Endoscopic mucosal resection vs endoscopic submucosal dissection for rectal carcinoid tumours: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Aim: Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) are used for the removal of rectal carcinoid tumours. There are no current guidelines or consensus on the optimal treatment strategy for these lesions. A systematic review was conducted to compare the efficacy and safety of ESD and EMR. Method: The generation of inclusion criteria and analysis of data were based on Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) recommendations. A systematic literature review was conducted using the following databases: Medline, Embase, SpringerLink, Elsevier ScienceDirect, Science Citation Index, and the Cochrane Library. Only articles comparing treatment of rectal carcinoid tumours by EMR compared with ESD were selected. The data collected included the patients' demographic information, interventions made, observed outcome, and sources of bias. Results: Four articles were included in this systematic review and meta-analysis. ESD was more effective than EMR in complete resection (OR, 0.29; 95% CI, 0.14-0.58; P= 0.000). ESD was as safe as EMR (RD, -0.01; 95% CI, -0.07-0.05; P = 0.675). Recurrence rates did not differ significantly between the EMR and ESD groups (RD, 0.04; 95% CI, -0.01-0.09; P = 0.150). The duration of ESD was longer than EMR (SMD, -1.73; 95% CI, -2.73 to -0.74; P = 0.001). Conclusion: The study indicates that ESD is the better treatment for rectal carcinoid tumours. © 2012 The Authors Colorectal Disease © 2012 The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland.

Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression: Diagnosis and Management of Patients at Risk of or with Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression

It is difficult to know what the true incidence of metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) is in England and Wales because the cases are not systematically recorded. However, evidence from an audit carried out in Scotland between 1997 and 1999 and from a published study from Ontario, Canada, suggests that the incidence may be up to 80 cases per million population per year. This would mean around 4000 cases per year in England and Wales or more than 100 cases per cancer network per year.
