Reported experience with surgery for gists
from 2000 to 2015 (n >50).
Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST
) is a type of soft tissue tumor occurring primarily in the digestive system.
Exon 11 was involved in 15 cases, and exon 9 and exon 17 in one case each, in the GISTs
with KIT mutation.
We are reporting the laparoscopic resection of GIST
in a 67 year old male who had presented with haematemesis.
A schematic approach is being attempted in order to shed light on the various forms of GISTs
PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway is activated after imatinib secondary resistance in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs
In total, 27 patients with GISTs
underwent surgical treatment and were followed up at the Gaziosmanpasa Taksim Training and Research Hospital from 2002 to 2016.
The established treatment for localised GISTs
is a complete surgical resection.
The CT and endoscopic ultrasound images suggested that the lesions in both stomach and duodenum were likely to be GISTs
Patients and Methods: A total of 63 diagnosed cases of GISTS
suitable by inclusion criteria were included in the study.
According to the latest NCCN guidelines, a CT (computed tomography) scan of the abdomen/pelvis is the initial workup for the evaluation, staging, and monitoring of treatment response in a GIST
typically showed a well-defined soft tissue of relatively low density, which is homogenous on a contrast-enhanced CT scan (Figure 1).
The SMTs are divided into three major categories including myogenic tumors (leiomyomas or leiomyosarcomas), neurogenic tumors (schwannomas, granular cell tumors, and neurofibromas), and GISTs
