EGFR Inhibitors for Neoadjuvant and Adjuvant Therapy of NSCLC

5-year survival rates of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) remain unsatisfactory after surgery with curative intent and disease recurrences, including distant metastases, are frequent. Only a minority of this heterogeneous disease is positive for EGFR mutations and suitable for Tyrosine Kinase-Inhibitor biological agents, which however present limits in terms of stable response to treatment, due to the acquired drug resistances.

Total Knee Prosthesis after Knee Joint Distraction Treatment

Background and purpose: During knee joint distraction (KJD) treatment, using an external fixation-frame, pin-tract infections frequently occur. These local skin infections, although treated successfully with oral antibiotics, might lead to latent infections. This raises concern about subsequent placement of a total knee prosthesis (TKP). This study evaluates the first five cases in which patients had to be treated with TKO after KJD failure.

Muscle-Sparing Thoracotomy: A Systematic Literature Review and the "Ave" Classification

Background: To synthesize the concept of muscle-sparing thoracotomies for major pulmonary resections and to explore the relationship between Kraissl's lines and skin incisions perpendicular to them.
Methods: Systematic literature review was performed of MEDLINE database. Articles were selected if they described adult patients undergoing major pulmonary resection by way of a well-described thoracotomy that neither partially nor completely transects extra thoracic muscles, and that is independent of endoscopic instruments, and video technology. Median sternotomy was excluded.
