Prediction of survival following percutaneous biliary drainage for malignant biliary obstruction

weigh the potential benefits and risks of this procedure in patients with MBO. Short term survival was reported in patients who underwent PTBD for malignant biliary obstruction. [ 15 , 17 , 18 ] Factors able to predict the long and short term survival after PTBD are scarcely reported in the medical literature and have not yet been well established. [ 13 ] In this study, we aimed to find prognostic factors of short term survival after PTBD in cancer patients; in addition, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of this procedure during the last month of life

Survival outcomes of low-risk and intermediate-risk stage IB1 cervical cancer patients

Cervical cancer is one of the most common gynecologic malignancies and also a common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. The standard of care for patients with early stage cervical cancer is radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection, or radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy [ 1 ]. Similar survival outcomes were reported among these modalities [ 2 , 3 ]. Adjuvant radiation after radical surgery, which has been reported to decrease the incidence of local recurrence, is usually recommended for patients with an increased risk of

Cancer Patients’ Survival: Standard Calculation Methods And Some Considerations Regarding Their Interpretation

1 Introduction Cancer patients’ survival is, together with the incidence, prevalence and mortality, one of the basic cancer burden indicators. Population-based survival of cancer patients, as shown by cancer registries for more than 60 years ( 1 ), is a valuable indicator, which reflects patients’ characteristics as well as the organisation, accessibility, quality and efficiency of the healthcare system. Generally, it greatly differs from the survival of patient groups with a particular disease treated in individual hospitals, as commonly presented by

Global Survival
Towards a Communication of Hope?


Confronted with serious challenges to human survival, communication should be mobilized to rescue the planet’s future. This requires the development of new forms of discursive power that shift from a culture of fear to a culture of hope. This can be achieved through global networks of those urban movements that increasingly move beyond their local political environments. The global city can emerge as a crucial site for the claim to human survival in dignity.

Long term survival in 200 patients with advanced stage of colorectal carcinoma and diabetes mellitus – a single institution experience

Introduction Diabetes mellitus (DM) is known to be an independent risk factor for the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). 1 , 2 The risk of colorectal cancer was estimated to be 27% higher in patients with type 2 DM than in non-diabetic controls. 3 However, it is unclear if the presence of diabetes in patients with CRC is associated with the cancer-specific survival of patients after cancer diagnosis. 4 Some authors found that patients with CRC and diabetes are at greater risk of all-cause and cancer-specific mortality and have worse disease
