Primary malignant duodenal tumors

Annals of Surgery
R P KerremansF M Penninckx


Fourteen patients with primary malignant duodenal tumors are studied. Twelve patients had adenocarcinomas and two patients had malignant lymphomas. Preoperative diagnostic procedures, such as radiographic study of duodenum with hypotonic duodenography, complete duodenoscopy with biopsy and artertiographic studies are discussed. Early diagnosis is the key for curative surgical treatment since these tumors seem to disseminate rather late. In patients with primary duodenal carcinoma the resectability rate was 66.7%-seven Whipple resections and one segmental resection. Only one patient in our series died after a Whipple resection. There was no mortality after other procedures. The five year survival rate was 14.2%. There is a definite correlation between regional lymph node involvement and survival time. The mean survival period after Whipple resection without lymph node invasion is 56.5 months in our series. The survival period after Whipple resection for adenocarcinoma with regional lymph node invasion (6 months) is identical to the survival after palliative internal derivations for duodenal adenocarcinoma (5.8 months). It is concluded that a positive peroperative frozen section of a regional lymph node should exclude resective p...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
