The indications for intersphincteric (ISR) anterior resection are not clearly defined. The aim of this study was to evaluate vertical extension of T2 or T3 low rectal cancer treated by rectal amputation to optimize patient selection for ISR.

Hide Abstract
Breast cancer patients who achieve a pathological complete response (pCR) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) usually have a favourable prognosis. We report on a patient with early metastases to the brain after achieving pCR. The primary tumour was 7.0 cm in diameter with axillary lymph node metastases, hormone receptor-negative, human epidermal growth factor receptor-2-positive (3+), and histological grade 2 with 60% of cells positive for Ki-67. The patient underwent NAC followed by surgery, and achieved pCR. Five months after surgery, during adjuvant treatment with trastuzumab, she developed headache and dizziness. Brain imaging revealed multiple metastatic brain tumours. She received whole-brain radiotherapy followed by lapatinib and capecitabine therapy. At 7 months after surgery, she remains alive with a persistent mild headache. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of early brain metastases, and consider new treatment strategies to prevent brain metastases in high-risk patients who achieve pCR.

Hide Abstract
A 52-year-old woman visited our hospital with epigastralgia. Detailed examination revealed a duodenal cancer of the ascending limbs. Since she refused the resection, the administration of S-1 alone was commenced. After one course of this treatment, oral intake became impossible. Duodenography and endoscopy showed duodenal obstruction, and she underwent surgery. The tumor proved to be unresectable due to direct invasion of the inferior vena cava. Duodenojejunostomy was performed. After surgery, she was treated by S-1 and survived 2 years and 11 months, which resulted in 3 years and 2 months long survival from her first visit. The intervals of the intake and home stay, after the operation, were 2 years and 8 months and 2 years and 5 months, respectively. The combination of S-1 administration and bypass operation provides a useful alternative for the treatment of unresectable duodenal cancer with stenosis.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
