Researchers are attempting to update and expand upon traditional tumor classification systems using recursive partitioning analysis, a modeling technique focused on predicting survival in patients with high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.
With improvements and evolution in robotic technology, robotic partial nephrectomy is proving more and more successful for larger, complicated tumors.
A Cleveland Clinic study found a significant discordance between the results of two commercially available genomic tests, even when both tumor tissue and circulating tumor DNA were collected around the same time.
These slides demonstrate the use of a customized implant in a man who presented with four years of progressively worsening left thigh cramping, with no specific history of trauma. Biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of a Grade II chondrosarcoma.

The key challenge for targeted therapy in pediatric oncology is no longer tumor analysis but how to analyze outcomes to harness cumulative experience. Here’s a blueprint of Cleveland Clinic Children’s plans for doing so.
The quantity of preserved nephrons correlates directly with functional recovery after partial nephrectomy. Precision of tumor excision and renal reconstruction to save as much vascularized parenchyma as possible is critical and can be optimized by high-quality imaging and meticulous surgical technique.
Although transformation of a solitary enchondroma to malignancy is rare, any concern for possible malignancy should prompt referral to a major musculoskeletal tumor center.
With improved methods to deliver heat to targeted tissue and the ability to couple treatments to increasingly accurate forms of imaging, the use of heat to ablate genitourinary tumors continues to expand.
Case of woman with hip pain illustrates value of using MRI for guiding some biopsies. Benefits include superior soft tissue contrast, three-dimensional imaging capabilities and lack of ionizing radiation.
