ABSTRACT

Background- Oral submucosal fibrosis (OSMF) is a common precancerous condition predominantly affecting the oral cavity. There are several contributing factors to its pathogenesis, areca nut chewing being the primary culprit. OSMF reversal is difficult once the disease sets in. Hence, after its diagnosis, staging becomes imperative as it affects the treatment plan. Several classification methods have been developed by various authors to categorize the disease based on its clinical, functional, and Histopathological characteristics. The main aim to conduct this study was to correlate clinical and histopathological staging. Materials & Methods- This study involved 30 patients who had been diagnosed with OSMF both Clinically and Histopathologically. All 30 patients were classified and were categorized according to their clinical and functional stages after inspection. Following this, histopathological grading was done. Results- The statistical analysis showed that there was a wide similarity between the clinical and functional staging. However, no significant similarity or correlation was found between the clinical and functional staging with its corresponding histopathological grades. Conclusions- Our study concluded that there is strong correlation between clinical and functional grading.

ABSTRACT

@#Objective     To exploring the effectiveness of perioperative application of new surgical clinical classification and staging for myasthenia gravis (MG) in reducing the incidence of postoperative myasthenic crisis (MC). Methods     The clinical data of patients with generalized MG admitted to the Comprehensive Treatment Center for Myasthenia Gravis of Henan Provincial People’s Hospital from January 2018 to June 2022 were retrospectively analyzed, who were scored with myasthenia gravis-activities of daily living (MG-ADL) score and quantification of the myasthenia gravis (QMG) score at the first visit, 1 day before surgery, and 3 days after surgery. The patients were divided into a group A (typeⅡ) and a group B (typeⅢ+Ⅳ+Ⅴ) by the new surgical clinical classification and staging of MG according to the disease progression process, and all patients underwent expanded thoracoscopic thymus (tumor) resection after medication and other interventions to control symptoms in remission or stability. The incidence of MC and the efficiency rate after surgery were analyzed. The normal distribution method and percentile method were used to calculate the unilateral 95% reference range of the QMG score and MG-ADL score. Results     Finally 126 patients were enrolled, including 62 males and 64 females, aged 13-71 years, with an average age of 46.00±13.00 years. There were 95 patients in the group A and 31 patients in the group B, and the differences of the preoperative baseline data between the two groups were not statistically significant (P>0.05). The incidence of postoperative MC was 1.05% (1/95) in the group A and 3.23%(1/31) in the group B (P>0.05). The effective one-sided 95% reference range of the QMG score and MG-ADL score 1 day before surgery was 0-7.75 and 0-5.00, and there was no postoperative death in both groups. Conclusion     The new surgical clinical classification and staging of MG can guide the timing of surgery, which can benefit patients undergoing surgery for MG and greatly reduce the incidence of postoperative MC.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the relationship between systemic immune-inflammation index (SII) and the prognosis of esophageal cancer patients treated with radical radiotherapy and to predict the prognosis of the patients using the SII combined with clinical staging.Methods:A retrospective analysis was conducted for 248 patients with esophageal cancer who were admitted to the Department of Radiotherapy in the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University between 2014 and 2016. These patients included 146 males and 102 females, with a median age of 67 years. Among them, 134 patients received concurrent chemotherapy and 114 patients received radiotherapy alone. The SII before radiotherapy was defined as platelet count × neutrophil count/lymphocyte count. The patients were divided into a low-SII group and a high-SII group according to the optimal cutoff value of pretreatment SII determined by the receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve. Survival analysis was calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and the Cox proportional hazards model was used for multivariate analysis. For these patients, the prognosis effects and the predictive value for survival of different SII levels combined with TNM staging were compared.Results:According to the ROC curves, the optimal cutoff value of SII before radiotherapy was 740.80. Based on this number, the patients were divided into a low-SII group (< 740.80, 150 cases) and a high-SII group (≥ 740.80, 98 cases). The objective response rate of the low-SII group was significantly higher than that of the high-SII group (86.0% vs 75.5%, χ2=4.39, P=0.036). The 1-, 3-, and 5-year overall survival (OS) rates of the low-SII group were 78.6%, 45.6%, and 32.3%, respectively. These rates were significantly higher than the corresponding rates of the high-SII group, which were 71.0%, 28.3%, and 16.4% ( χ2=11.22, P=0.001), respectively. Moreover, the 1-, 3- and 5-year progression-free survival (PFS) rates of the low-SII group were 67.0%, 36.9%, and 32.0%, respectively. Again, these rates were significantly higher than those of the high-SII group, which were 45.5%, 17.5%, and 12.5% ( χ2=15.38, P < 0.001), respectively. Multivariate analysis showed that TNM staging, treatment method, and SII were independent prognostic factors for OS and PFS ( HR=1.39-1.60, P<0.05). Patients with low SII and early clinical staging had a better prognosis than other subgroups ( χ2=13.68, 13.43, P=0.001). The area under curve (AUC) of SII combined with TNM staging (0.70) was higher than that of SII (0.63) and TNM staging (0.62) ( Z=2.48, 2.57, P < 0.05). Conclusions:Pretreatment SII has a high predictive value for the prognosis of esophageal cancer after radiotherapy, and higher SII indicates a worse prognosis. Thus, combining SII with TNM staging can improve the prediction accuracy of the prognosis of esophageal cancer patients.

ABSTRACT

Surgery is still the first choice for the curation of early gallbladder cancer, and the surgical strategy is selected based on anatomic position of primary tumor, accurate preoperative stage, and strict indication assessment in order to achieve the optimal curative effect. However, most patients are in advanced stage or with distant metastasis at the first diagnosis, and the recurrence rate and 5-year survival rate are not satisfied even if they receive curative resection. Subsequently, it is urgent for the employment of more treatment strategies in the process management of gallbladder cancer patients, such as neoadjuvant therapy, postoperative therapy and first-line or second-line treatment of local advanced and metastatic patients. In recent years, application of molecular targeted agents and immunotherapy have brought greater hope and laid a vaster prospect for the treatment of gallbladder cancer. However, there is still lack of evidence-based medicine data on the prognostic results, and further researches are needed. By integrating the domestic and abroad new research achievements, the authors systematically summarize the current status and future trend on the management of gallbladder cancer, and hope to provide a macroscopic and systemic treatment chart, including necessary details.

ABSTRACT

Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTCL) is the subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma with high heterogeneity and invasiveness. Though most ENKTCL patients are present as early-stage at diagnosis, clinical prognosis significantly differs due to the limitations of clinical staging. Radiotherapy (RT) and chemotherapy (CT) are the first-line treatments for early ENKTCL patients. However, there is no consensus on the combined modalities of RT and CT, and their optimal strategy. With the continuous renewal of clinical staging and prognostic models, early-stage ENKTCL patients tend to accept risk-adapted treatment with proper stratification. In this review, the latest research progresses on clinical staging, prognostic models and treatment were retrospectively analyzed, aiming to provide references for clinical decision-making.

ABSTRACT

Youth mental illnesses are chronic and recurrent and present a continuous disease development and progression, which cause different functional impairments like cognitional, emotional and behavioral disorders.At pre-sent, the clinical diagnosis of youth mental illness largely relies on behavioral symptoms.The diagnosis is made by the consistency between behaviors and symptoms of patients and those described in the diagnostic criteria.Although the diagnosis is operational to a certain extent in clinical practise, its assessment is subjective and lacks effective neurobio-logical indicators, resulting in a low consistency of diagnosis and great challenges in the early diagnosis and standardized intervention of youth mental illnesses.The prodromal symptoms in youth mental illness are unspecific and there is a decrement in neurocognition including social cognition by the emergence of traditional symptom sets.Therefore, transdiagnostic clinical staging model is of great significance in clinical assessment in youth mental illness.Here, the essentials of the " transdiagnostic clinical staging in youth mental health: a first international consensus statement" published in the World Psychiatry in 2020 were interpreted, with a detailed analysis of the key updates, aiming to provide a reference for clinical diagnosis and treatment of youth mental illness.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To estimate the Pulmonary Tuberculosis (PTB) prevalence among the participants/People Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) and to verify the association between WHO clinical staging and other risk factors with PTB. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted to estimate the PTB prevalence. Probable associated risk factors in PLWHAs with and without PTB were compared. The association between WHO clinical staging and other risk factors with PTB was investigated using bivariate analysis. A p-value<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: This study was conducted from January 2018 to December 2019, recruited about 584 participants with presumptive PTB and 20.72% (121) confirmed with PTB. In the bivariate analysis; participants who are on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Stage 4 (WHO clinical staging) were significantly more likely to develop PTB (p=0.000). PTB was significantly higher among male than female (p=0.000), higher among the older (p=0.030). PTB was significantly more frequent among participants with lower cluster differentiation 4 (CD4) cell counts (p=0.042). A contact history with a Tuberculosis (TB) patient was an important risk factor (p=0.000). PTB was significantly associated with smoking history (p=0.000). Conclusion: A high PTB prevalence was observed. There was a significantly association between the severity of WHO clinical staging, sex, age, lower CD4 cell count, a contact history with a tuberculosis (TB) patient and smoking history with PTB among PLWHAs.

ABSTRACT

@#Background: The COVID-19 is a disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This study aims to describe the clinical characteristics of COVID-19 patients admitted to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan (HTAA), Pahang, Malaysia and to identify the clinical and laboratory markers for severe disease, complications and virologic clearance according to clinical staging. Methods: This was a single-centre, retrospective, descriptive study. All COVID-19 patients admitted to HTAA from March 9 to April 15, 2020, were included in the study. Patients were categorised according to clinical staging. Data obtained from the medical report includes baseline characteristics of patients, comorbidities, presenting symptoms, laboratory findings, treatments, complications, and outcomes. Results: Of the total of 247 patients hospitalised, the majority consisted at clinical-stage 1 (43%) and stage 2 (39%) disease. Older patients, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic kidney disease were found more common among patients with severe disease. Fever was uncommon and the majority had normal haemoglobin levels, white cell counts, and platelet counts. C-reactive protein (CRP) was found statistically significant to predict pneumonia or hypoxia at a cut-off value of 14mg/L (sensitivity 73.8%, specificity 91.3%) and 50mg/L (sensitivity 100%, specificity 96.4%) respectively. Pneumonia was mostly diagnosed radiologically using chest radiography, especially among clinical stage 3. Acute kidney injury (AKI) was a significant complication, with 31% of clinical stage 3 and above developed AKI and 44% of them requiring haemodialysis. Median virologic clearance time was 15 days from onset of illness, and asymptomatic patients had longer clearance time. Conclusion: COVID-19 presented with a wide spectrum of clinical patterns. CRP was a valuable predictor of severe disease. In this study risk and severity of acute kidney injury were found to be higher. A longer duration of virologic clearance was observed among the asymptomatic patients.

ABSTRACT

Introduction@#Cervical cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in women in Fiji (incidence- 35/100,000) with a case fatality rate of 87%. This study aims to describe the clinical staging profile and actual management received for cervical cancer at Lautoka Hospital from 2009 to 2014. The objectives of this study are to describe the clinical staging profile for cervical cancer and compare it with recommended staging by FIGO and to describe the recommended treatments versus the actual management received following clinical staging of cervical cancer patients at Lautoka Hospital from 2009 to 2014.@*Method@#This is a retrospective study of the clinical records of women diagnosed with cervical cancer who underwent pretreatment clinical staging at Lautoka Hospital from 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2014. A total of 199 cases of histologically-diagnosed cervical cancer from the 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2014 were identified from the cancer registry at the Lautoka Hospital Pathology Department. One hundred and nine case folders were retrieved (55% retrieval rate). Two cases were excluded.Thus a total of 107 cases were studied.@*Results@# No case met the complete FIGO staging criteria at the Lautoka hospital where by a thorough pelvic examination (with or without anaesthesia), cystoscopy and imaging (IVP & CXR) were performed. Only 9% of the cases met the minimum FIGO clinical staging requirement of only having a thorough pelvic examination done. Poor and illegible documentation was a serious issue. There was incorrect FIGO stage documented in 54% of cases based on the examiners findings. Out of these cases with incorrect FIGO stage, 22% of cases had no FIGO stage documented. with examiners undecided on the actual FIGO stage for about a 24% of the cases, 19% under staged and 12 % of cases were over staged. Once stage is corrected according to documented findings, 58% are of FIGO stage 2B to 3B, and would have been appropriate for chemo-radiation abroad. A total of 67% of cases present with locally advanced and advance FIGO stages. Only 32% of cases clinically staged with FIGO stages 1A to 2A were candidates for surgery in Fiji. Of those who underwent clinical staging 60% received recommended management/treatment. Forty-four percent of women clinically staged at Lautoka Hospital received palliative care.@*Conclusion@#There was poor documentation of staging of cervical cancer and majority of the cases did not meet the minimum FIGO staging requirements. A large number of cases received palliative care, as Fiji does not have facilities for Radiotherapy. The low retrieval rate of 55% highlights the challenge of missing folders faced at Lautoka Hospital and was a limitation for this study.

ABSTRACT

Background: The aim of the study was to find out the correlation between pretherapeutic clinical and radiological staging of carcinoma larynx. Methods: This was a prospective cross sectional study carried out in department of ENT at Government Medical College & Dr. Susheela Tiwari government hospital, Haldwani during the period of September 2015 to 2016. 50 adult patients (mainly 4th, 5th, 6th,7th decade) having complaints of hoarseness, throat pain, neck mass etc were subjected to clinical evaluation.. Provisional clinical diagnosis of laryngeal mass was made followed by diagnostic rigid 90 degree laryngoscopy in OPD setting. It was followed by FNAC in cases of lymph node swelling. Radiological evaluation was done using CECT scan neck and MRI ( if required). Biopsy of suspected cases (malignant) was done under local or general anesthesia. Pretherapeutic clinical staging was done in patients diagnosed with carcinoma. Using information from CT and MRI pretherapeutic radiological staging was done and these patients were included in the study. Patients having benign neoplasm, lymphoma, recurrent malignant disease and those having undergone radiotherapy were excluded from the study. Comparison between pretherapeutic clinical and radiological staging of carcinoma larynx was done and its impact on treatment options was analyzed during follow up of patients. Results: It was observed in the present study that Carcinoma larynx is a male dominant disease mainly seen in elderly age group with mean age group of 65years consuming alcohol along with habit of smoking. Maximum number of cases were of supraglottic malignancy followed by involvement of glottis with no case of subglottic malignancy. In the present study we found that 32% of cases showed upstaging with CT scan, as a result of deep tumor extent undetectable at clinical examination.Conclusion:Clinical or endoscopic evaluation fails to identify invasion of the laryngeal framework and of extralaryngeal soft tissues in a high percentage of cases. An additional radiologic examination, either CT or MR imaging, is essential in most laryngeal carcinomas for the correct pretherapeutic staging and proper treatment.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the MR features of different clinical staging of scapulohumeral periarthritis and provide relevant support data for the clinical staging of scapulohumeral periarthritis, so as to guide clinical treatment. Methods 30 patients with scapulohumeral periar-thritis received in the hospital from June 2015 to February 2017 were selected to form the observation group and 8 same-sex and same-aged volunteers without such disease were selected to form the control group. MR imaging was used to observe and measure the structure of shoulder joint of the people in the two groups and statistical analysis was performed to analyze the changes in the structure of the shoulder around dif-ferent clinical stages. Results The thickness of joint capsule and coracohumeral ligament ( CHL) , the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle re-placed were significantly greater in patients with scapulohumeral periarthritis than those in the control group, and the difference was statisti-cally significant (P<0. 05). Comparing the thickness of joint capsule in the third stage of the scapulohumeral periarthritis group compare with those in the first and second stages, the difference was statistically significant (P<0. 05). There was no statistically significant differ-ence (P>0. 05) in the thickness of the coracohumeral ligament and the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle replaced in the scapulohumeral peri-arthritis group between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd stages. Conclusion Patients with different stages have different structures around the shoulder joints. The thickness of joint capsule can be used as an important reference for diagnosing scapulohumeral periarthritis and can guide the clin-ical staging. The thickness of coracohumeral ligament and the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle replaced can be used as a basis for diagnosing scapulohumeral periarthritis, but it cannot be used as a guideline for clinical staging.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo : validar y evaluar el rendimiento de la Global Deteriorarion Scale (GDS) en una población que acude a una unidad especializada de Lima. Pacientes y métodos: investigación de tipo transversal con un diseño descriptivo comparativo. El estudio incluyó 215 individuos seleccionados de forma abierta, que acudieron a la unidad de diagnóstico de deterioro cognitivo y prevención de demencia. Se estudiaron tres grupos: 60 controles, 40 con diagnóstico de deterioro cognitivo leve y 115 con demencia. Los individuos fueron sometidos a evaluaciones sucesivas: cribado, diagnóstico y estadiaje de demencia y tipo de demencia. La validez y fiabilidad de la clasificación de severidad fue demostrada mediante la concordancia entre la medición del Global Deteriorarion Scale con el Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR). El rendimiento de Global Deteriorarion Scale se valoró mediante la obtención de los valores de sensibilidad y especificidad. Resultados : los promedios de edad fueron de 69, 70, y 74 años para los controles, los pacientes con deterioro cognitivo leve y los pacientes con demencia, respectivamente. La Global Deteriorarion Scale tuvo una buena correlación con Clinical Dementia Rating (r de Spearman =0,97; P=0,0001). La sensibilidad de la escala para establecer estadio de demencia fue de 79 %, con especificidad del 100 % para cualquier categoría de demencia según los criterios diagnósticos estándares y según Clinical Dementia Rating. Conclusiones : se encontró una correlación casi perfecta entre Global Deteriorarion Scale y Clinical Dementia Rating; sin embargo, la Global Deteriorarion Scale presenta una sensibilidad moderada para establecer el estadio de demencia con respecto a Clinical Dementia Rating, mostrando además ser utilidad en el diagnóstico de deterioro cognitivo leve.


Abstract Objective: To validate and evaluate diagnostic accuracy of the Global Deteriorarion Scale (GDS) in a population of a specialized unit of Lima. Patients and Methods: This research is a comparative cross-sectional descriptive design. The study included 215 individuals selected openly, who attending in the diagnostic unit of cognitive impairment and dementia prevention. Three groups were studied: 60 controls, 40 individuals diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and 115 with dementia diagnosis. They were assessments in three phases: screening, diagnosis and staging of dementia, and type of dementia. The validity and reliability of the classification of severity was demonstrated by measuring the correlation between the GDS with the CDR (Clinical Dementia Rating). The diagnostic accuracy of GDS was evaluated by obtaining the values of sensitivity and specificity. Results: The average age was 69, 70, and 74 years for controls, patients with MCI and patients with dementia respectively. GDS had a good correlation with CDR (Spearman r = 0.97, P = 0.0001). The sensitivity of the GDS to set stage of dementia for any category of dementia was 79 % and specificity of 100 % according to standard diagnostic criteria and according to CDR. Conclusions: We demonstrated an almost perfect correlation between GDS and CDR, however GDS has a moderate sensitivity to set the stage dementia regarding CDR also proving to be useful in the diagnosis of MCI.

Objective·To evaluate the clinical value of two-dimensional ultrasound combined with four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound in the diagnosis of uterine space-occupying lesion.Methods·A total of 75 patients with uterine space-occupying lesion were enrolled in this study from March 2015 to February 2016 at Hospital of Southwest Medical University.Patients received both two-dimensional ultrasound and four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound to determine the location,number and nature of the lesions,as well as the clinical staging of malignant lesions,then the diagnostic accuracy was evaluated.Results·Among 75 patients,there were 26 cases with endometrial carcinoma,21 cases with hysteromyoma,16 cases with metropolypus,and 12 cases with uterine adenomyosis.The diagnostic accuracy of two-dimensional ultrasound combined with four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound for the uterine space-occupying lesion was 88.0%,which was significantly higher than that of two-dimensional ultrasound (64.0%) (P<0.05).What's more,the diagnostic accuracy of two-dimensional ultrasound combined with four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound for the clinical staging of endometrial carcinoma was 88.5%,which was significantly higher than that of two-dimensional ultrasound (61.5%) (P<0.05).Conclusion·Two-dimensional ultrasound combined with four-dimensional color Doppler ultrasound is more effective to improve the diagnostic accuracy of uterine space occupying lesion and clinical staging of endometrial carcinoma in comparison with two-dimensional ultrasound,which will favor the clinical strategy for the treatment of uterine space-occupying lesion.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the accuracy of enhanced spiral CT scans on the clinical staging of renal cell carcinoma.MethodsThe enhanced CT and clinical data of 48 patients with renal carcinoma verified by surgery and pathology in Chongqing Donghua hospital were retrospectively analyzed.Robson's classification was used to determine the clinical stages of CT data,and the staging findings based on CT data were compared with the postoperative and pathological outcomes.Results The results showed that the accuracy of preoperative CT on the staging was 91.7%.Enhanced scanning by spiral CT was useful to identify the boundaries of tumor and the filling defect of renal vein or inferior vena cava.Conclusion Enhanced scanning using the spiral CT can improve the accuracy of clinical staging for renal carcinoma,which provides guidance about the clinical therapeutic schedules for patients with renal carcinoma.

ABSTRACT

The clinical staging model is considered a useful and practical method not only in dealing with the early stage of psychosis overcoming the debate about diagnostic boundaries but also in emerging mood disorder. However, its one limitation is that it cannot discriminate the heterogeneity of individuals at clinical high risk for psychosis, but lumps them all together. Even a healthy offspring of schizophrenia can eventually show clinical symptoms and progress to schizophrenia under the influence of genetic vulnerability and environmental stress even after the peak age of onset of schizophrenia. Therefore, individuals with genetic liability of schizophrenia may require a more intensive intervention than recommended by the staging model based on current clinical status.
