1. Primary carcinoid tumor of the parotid gland: A case report and review of the literature.
Match Strength: 12.051

Salivary gland tumors account for 3 to 6% of all head and neck neoplasms in adults. Some 70 to 85% of these lesions are found in the parotid. Carcinoid tumors, which represent a distinct and relatively uncommon subset of neuroendocrine tumors, are most commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract, although in rare cases they are known to occur in extragastrointestinal locations, including the larynx, middle ear and pancreas. Malignancies of the parotid gland are uncommon (approximately 25% of parotid neoplasms), and to the best of our knowledge, a primary carcinoid tumor of the parotid has not ... Read More »

2. Treatment of neuroendocrine tumors with somatostatin analogs.
Match Strength: 8.243

Neuroendocrine tumors constitute a group of hormone producing tumors originating from neuroendocrine cells in different organs. Most tumors have a low proliferation index measured by Ki67 and the progression of the tumor is slow. However, many patients suffer from endocrine symptoms induced by the hormones produced and released by the tumor cells. For some patients these symptoms can be life- threatening as in midgut carcinoid patients suffering from carcinoid crises with extensive flushes and hypotension or in patients with severe diarrhea induced by tumors producing vasointestinal ... Read More »

3. Usefulness of Ki-67 for predicting the metastatic potential of rectal carcinoids.
Match Strength: 4.501

Rectal carcinoid <10 mm can be completely removed by endoscopic procedure. However, a few authors reported that small rectal carcinoids have the potential to metastasize. Therefore, histological parameters predicting their metastatic potential are necessary. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of Ki-67 positive/negative area ratio (Ki-67 ratio) using computer-assisted image analysis. A total of 43 patients with rectal carcinoids were retrospectively investigated. Twenty-eight patients underwent endoscopic resection and 15 patients underwent surgery. Nine of the 43 ... Read More »

4. Transbronchial biopsy guided by low-dose MDCT: a new approach for assessment of solitary pulmonary nodules.
Match Strength: 3.538

OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to determine whether transbronchial bronchoscopic biopsy of solitary pulmonary nodules under CT guidance using a low-dose protocol can increase diagnostic yield in patients who had undergone unsuccessful conventional bronchoscopic biopsy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We included 33 consecutive patients (25 men; mean age +/- SD, 64 +/- 9.6 years) with solitary pulmonary nodules at different sites and with a lesion-to-pleura distance of at least 2 cm who previously underwent conventional bronchoscopy that did not result in histologic diagnosis. All patients ... Read More »
