      Abstract: Background Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) has a poor prognosis and there is an unmet clinical need for biomarkers to improve both diagnostic and prognostic assessment. Pituitary-tumor transforming gene (PTTG1) has been shown to modulate cancer invasiveness and response to therapy. The potential role of PTTG1 protein levels in ACC has not been previously addressed. We assessed whether increased nuclear protein expression of PTTG1 distinguished ACCs from adrenocortical adenomas (ACAs). Methods Patients with ACC or ACA were identified from prospective tissue banks at two independent institutions. Two tissue microarrays (TMAs) consisting of adrenal specimens from 131 patients were constructed and clinically annotated. Immunohistochemical analysis for PTTG1 and Ki-67 was performed on each TMA. Results TMA-1 (n = 80) contained 20 normal adrenals, 20 ACAs, and 40 ACCs, and the validation, TMA-2 (n = 51), consisted of 10 normal adrenals, 14 ACAs, and 27 ACCs. On TMA-1, nuclear staining of PTTG1 was detected in 12 (31%) ACC specimens, while all ACAs and normal adrenal glands were negative for PTTG1. On TMA-2, 20 (74%) of the ACC tumors demonstrated PTTG1 nuclear staining of PTTG1, and 13 (93%) ACA and 4 (44%) normal adrenal glands were negative for PTTG1. ACC tumors with increased PTTG1 protein staining had a significantly higher Ki-67 index (p < 0.001) than those with lower levels of PTTG1. Conclusions Increased nuclear protein expression of PTTG1 was observed in malignant adrenal tumors. PTTG1 correlated with Ki-67 in two independent TMAs. PTTG1 is a promising biologic marker in the evaluation of adrenal tumors.

  • STMN1 is Overexpressed in Adrenocortical Carcinoma and Promotes a More
           Aggressive Phenotype In Vitro

      Abstract: Background Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare endocrine malignancy with a poor prognosis and few therapeutic options. Stathmin1 (STMN1) is a cytosolic protein involved in microtubule dynamics through inhibition of tubulin polymerization and promotion of microtubule depolymerization, which has been implicated in carcinogenesis and aggressive behavior in multiple epithelial malignancies. We aimed to evaluate expression of STMN1 in ACC and to elucidate how this may contribute to its malignant phenotype. Methods STMN1 was identified by RNA sequencing as a highly differentially expressed gene in human ACC samples compared with benign adrenal tumors. Expression was confirmed by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR), Western blot, and immunohistochemical (IHC) staining of a tissue microarray (TMA) from two independent cohorts. The biologic relevance of STMN1 was investigated in NCI-H295R cells by lentivirus-mediated silencing. Results Differential gene expression demonstrated an eightfold increase in STMN1 messenger RNA (mRNA) in malignant compared with benign adrenal tissue. IHC showed significantly higher expression of STMN1 protein in ACC compared with normal and benign tissues. STMN1 knockdown in an ACC cell line resulted in decreased cell viability, cell-cycle arrest at G0/G1, and increased apoptosis in serum-starved conditions compared with scramble short hairpin RNA (shRNA) controls. STMN1 knockdown also decreased migration, invasion, and anchorage-independent growth compared with controls. Conclusions STMN1 is overexpressed in human ACC samples, and knockdown of this target in vitro resulted in a less aggressive phenotype of ACC, particularly under serum-starved conditions. Further study is needed to investigate the feasibility of interfering with STMN1 as a potential therapeutic target.

  • Impact of Sarcopenia on Unplanned Readmission and Survival After
           Esophagectomy in Patients with Esophageal Cancer
    • Authors: Daisuke Makiura; Rei Ono; Junichiro Inoue; Akimasa Fukuta; Miyuki Kashiwa; Yasushi Miura; Taro Oshikiri; Tetsu Nakamura; Yoshihiro Kakeji; Yoshitada Sakai
      Abstract: Background Although sarcopenia increases postoperative complications following esophagectomy, its effects on prognosis remain unclear. This study was performed to identify the effect of sarcopenia on 90-day unplanned readmission and overall survival (OS) after esophagectomy. Methods Ninety-eight patients with esophageal cancer who underwent esophagectomy were enrolled in this study. Unplanned readmission was defined as any emergent hospitalization within 90 days after discharge. Sarcopenia, defined as low muscle mass plus low muscle strength and/or low physical performance according to the Asian consensus definition, was assessed prior to esophagectomy. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify factors that contributed to 90-day unplanned readmission. OS was estimated using the Kaplan–Meier method, and a Cox proportional hazards model was used to assess the relationship between sarcopenia and OS. Results Thirty-one patients (31.6%) were diagnosed with sarcopenia. The 90-day unplanned readmission rate was significantly higher in patients with sarcopenia than those without (42.9% vs. 16.4%, respectively; p = 0.01). Multivariable logistic regression analysis showed that sarcopenia was an independent predictor of 90-day unplanned readmission [odds ratio 3.71, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.29–11.05; p = 0.02], and the log-rank test showed that sarcopenia was associated with OS (p = 0.01). Moreover, sarcopenia was a significant predictor of OS after adjustment for age, sex, and pathological stage (hazard ratio 2.35, 95% CI 1.21–4.54; p = 0.01). Conclusions Sarcopenia is a risk factor for 90-day unplanned readmission and OS following esophagectomy. Assessment of sarcopenia could help to identify patients at higher risk of a poor prognosis after esophagectomy.

  • Effects of Cytoreductive Surgery and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal
           Chemotherapy (HIPEC) in the Treatment of Goblet Cell Carcinoma: A
           Prospective Cohort Study
    • Authors: Anders Husted Madsen; Morten Ladekarl; Gerda Elisabeth Villadsen; Henning Grønbæk; Mette Møller Sørensen; Katrine Stribolt; Vic Jilbert Verwaal; Lene Hjerrild Iversen
      Abstract: Background Goblet cell carcinoma (GCC) of the appendix is a rare disease. Treatment options vary according to disease staging. Cytoreductive surgery in combination with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS + HIPEC) may improve survival in patients with peritoneal spreading. Objective The aim of this study was to examine the prognosis of patients with appendiceal GCC treated per protocol, and to evaluate the results of CRS+HIPEC in cases of peritoneal spreading. Methods From 2009 to 2016, a total of 48 GCC patients were referred to the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Center of Excellence, Aarhus University Hospital. All patients received treatment per protocol according to disease staging. In patients with localized disease, the treatment was a right hemicolectomy. Patients with peritoneal spread who met the inclusion criteria for CRS + HIPEC, as well as patients with high-risk features of developing peritoneal spread, received CRS + HIPEC. If too-extensive disease was found, palliative chemotherapy was offered. Results Overall survival for patients with localized disease (n = 6) or deemed at risk of peritoneal spread (n = 8) was 100% after a median follow-up of 3.5 years. In patients with peritoneal spread and eligible for CRS+HIPEC(n = 27), the median survival was 3.2 years [95% confidence interval (CI) 2.3–4.1] and the 5-year survival rate was 57%. In contrast, the median survival for patients with too-extensive intraperitoneal disease (n = 7) was 1.3 years (95% CI 0.6–2.0), with a 3-year survival rate of 20%. Conclusions Long-term survival can be achieved in patients with peritoneal spread treated with CRS + HIPEC. CRS+HIPEC was associated with a favorable outcome in GCC patients at high-risk of developing peritoneal spread.

  • Neoadjuvant Therapy Versus Upfront Resection for Pancreatic Cancer: The
           Actual Spectrum and Clinical Burden of Postoperative Complications
    • Authors: Giovanni Marchegiani; Stefano Andrianello; Chiara Nessi; Marta Sandini; Laura Maggino; Giuseppe Malleo; Salvatore Paiella; Enrico Polati; Claudio Bassi; Roberto Salvia
      Abstract: Background Neoadjuvant therapy (NAT) is used for borderline-resectable or locally advanced pancreatic cancer (PDAC) and exhibits promising results in terms of pathological outcomes. However, little is known about its effect on surgical complications. Methods We analyzed 445 pancreatic resections for PDAC from 2014 to 2016 at The Pancreas Institute, Verona University Hospital. The Modified Accordion Severity Grading System and average complication burden (ACB) were used to compare patients treated with NAT with patients who underwent upfront surgery (UFS). Results Of 305 pancreaticoduodenectomies (PD), patients treated with NAT (n = 99) had less pancreatic fistula (POPF, 9.1% vs. 15.6%, p = 0.05) without grade C cases, but grade B ACB was increased (0.28 for NAT vs. 0.24 for UFS, p = 0.05). The postpancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) rate was lower in the NAT group (9.1% vs. 14.6%, p = 0.02), but ACB grades B (0.37 for NAT vs. 0.26 for UFS, p = 0.03) and C (0.43 for NAT vs. 0.29 for UFS, p = 0.05) were increased. Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) was increased in NAT cases (15.2% vs. 8.3%, p = 0.04), with higher grade C ACB (0.43 for NAT vs. 0.29 for UFS, p = 0.03). Of 94 distal pancreatectomies (DP), NAT patients (n = 26) developed more grade C POPF (11.5% vs. 1.5%, p = 0.04) and DGE (11.5% vs. 2.9%, p = 0.01) without differences in ACB. Conclusions Patients undergoing PD for PDAC after NAT exhibited reduced incidence of POPF and PPH but increased incidence of DGE compared with patients treated with UFS. Among patients developing postoperative complications after PD, those receiving NAT were associated with increased clinical burden.

  • Implications of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy
           Perfusion-Related Hyperglycemia
    • Authors: Camille L. Stewart; Ana Gleisner; Alison Halpern; Irada Ibrahim-Zada; Rodrigo Asturias Luna; Nathan Pearlman; Csaba Gajdos; Barish Edil; Martin McCarter
      Abstract: Background Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) administration can be associated with hyperglycemia during perfusion. Little is known about this effect, and no previous studies have examined patient characteristics associated with perfusion-related hyperglycemia. Methods We retrospectively identified consecutive patients at a single institution treated with HIPEC from 8/2003 to 10/2016 who had intraoperative blood glucose measured. Hypertonic 1.5% dextrose-containing peritoneal dialysate was used as carrier solution in all patients. Comparisons were made using parametric [Student’s t test, analysis of variance (ANOVA)], and nonparametric tests (χ 2, Kruskal–Wallis) where appropriate. Results There were 85 patients identified, with average age of 53 ± 12 years, 69 (81%) with appendiceal or colorectal peritoneal cancer. Most patients were perfused with mitomycin C (69%) or oxaliplatin (24%). Intraoperative hyperglycemia (> 180 mg/dL) affected the majority of patients (86%), with values up to 651 mg/dL. Insulin was required for treatment in 66% of patients. Peak hyperglycemia occurred within an hour of perfusion in 91%, and resolved by postoperative day one in 91% of patients. Glucose > 309 mg/dL (highest quartile) was associated with longer operating time (p = 0.03) and with use of oxaliplatin compared with mitomycin C (p = 0.01). No association was found with other comorbidities, peritoneal carcinomatosis index score, or postoperative outcomes. Conclusions Most patients experience hyperglycemia during HIPEC. This is not clearly associated with patient factors, and may be due to use of dextrose-containing carrier solution. Since perioperative hyperglycemia has potential negative impact, use of dextrose-containing carrier solution should be questioned and is worth investigating further.

  • Use of a Purse-String Suture to Reduce Skin Graft Requirements
    • Authors: Jonathan McCue; Loree K. Kalliainen
      Abstract: Background When a wound cannot be closed in a linear fashion and either a local flap or skin graft is needed, a purse-string suture can be a useful adjunct to wound closure. Local tissue architecture is maintained in cases where clear surgical margins have not been achieved at the time of extirpative skin cancer surgery. We hypothesized that this technique could be applied to a range of wound sizes and locations to avoid or reduce the need for skin grafting. Methods We applied a non-absorbable purse-string suture to wounds in 18 patients over a 15-month period and measured the defect size before and after application of the suture intraoperatively. Residual defects were covered with full- or split-thickness skin grafts. Postoperative wound area, scar hypertrophy, partial graft loss and dehiscence following suture removal were additional outcomes. Results Ten patients achieved primary wound closure with the purse-string suture, while additional skin grafting was required in eight patients. Wounds closed primarily did not re-expand. Skin-grafted subjects had a 53.8% intraoperative wound area reduction but the skin grafts expanded during recovery, and ultimate reduction diminished to 11% on late follow-up. Wounds accounting for this late re-expansion were located on the extremities. Conclusions Purse-string sutures are helpful for wound closure in wounds that cannot be closed primarily. They can decrease the size of a skin graft if the wound cannot be closed completely. Wound re-expansion, particularly in extremity defects, may occur following early removal of the tension-bearing purse string.
