Article: Clinicopathologic variables predicting tumor response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced gastric cancer.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To identify clinicopathologic variables that could predict pathologic tumor response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy for patients with locally advanced gastric cancer. The study enrolled 108 patients who underwent neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery between July 2004 and December 2010. Tumor responses to neoadjuvant chemotherapy were assessed in terms of tumor regression. Statistical analyses were performed to identify factors associated with pathologic tumor response. Tumor regression was found in 22.2% (24/108) patients, patients with tumor regression observed better overall survival as compared to that of patients without tumor regression. Univariate and multivariate analyses observed that both tumor differentiation and tumor size were independent predictors of tumor regression. This study suggests that both tumor differentiation and tumor size is the most important clinical predicator of pathologic tumor response, it may be of benefit in the selection of treatment options in locally advanced gastric cancer.Journal of Surgical Oncology 08/2011; 105(3):293-6. · 2.10 Impact Factor
Article: [Evaluation of MR diffusion-weighted imaging (MR-DWI) between head and neck hemangioma and venous malformation in children].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To analyze and evaluate the MR diffusion-weighted imaging (MR-DWI) features of head and neck hemangioma and venous malformation in children. We retrospectively observed 10 head and neck hemangiomas and 40 head and neck venous malformations in children, which underwent both conventional MR imaging and MR-DWI. In the MR-DW images, the apparent diffusion coefficient(ADC) mean value was taken from b=500 s/mm² and 1000 s/mm², The data was analyzed using SPSS13.0 software package for t test. The mean ADC obtained from b value of 500 s/mm² was (1.227±0.324)x10⁻³mm²/s in hemangioma and (1.851±0.364)x10⁻³mm²/s in venous malformation, and from b value of 1000 s/mm² was (0.728±0.256)x10⁻³mm²/s in hemangioma and (1.200±0.228)x10⁻³mm²/s in vein malformation. There was significant difference between both lesions (P<0.01). There are different features in MR-DWI between head and neck hemangioma and venous malformation in children, which may be helpful for radiological differential diagnosis.Shanghai kou qiang yi xue = Shanghai journal of stomatology 08/2010; 19(4):378-82.

ABSTRACT: Hemangioma is the most commonly benign tumor of soft tissue tumors in infants. Most of them locate in the oral and maxillofacial region. The imaging examinations mainly contain ultrasonography, X-ray plain film, CT, MRI and X-ray angiography. In this article, the current situation of application with all imaging examinations used in diagnosis of hemangioma is reviewed.Shanghai kou qiang yi xue = Shanghai journal of stomatology 05/2008; 17(2):221-4.
