Giant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura : case report and review of the literature
Anton Crnjac, Bojan Veingerl, Damjan Vidovič, Rajko Kavalar, Aljaž Hojski, 2015, review article

Abstract: Background. Solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura (SFTP) are rare tumours. They are mostly benign. Only around 12% of them are malignant. In the initial stage they are mostly asymptomatic and by growing they cause chest pain, irritating cough and dyspnoea on account of the pressure created on the surrounding structures. Rare giant tumours have compression symptoms on the mediastinal structures. The condition requires tiered diagnostic radiology. Preoperative biopsy is not successful in most cases. The therapy of choice is radical surgical tumour removal. Malignant or nonradically removed benign solitary fibrous tumours of the pleura additionally require neoadjuvant therapy. Case report. A 68-year old patient was hospitalized for giant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura in the right pleural cavity. With its expansive growth the tumour caused the shift of the mediastinum by compressing the lower vena cava, right cardiac auricle as well as the intermediate and lower lobe bronchus. Due to cardiac inflow obstruction and right lung collapse, the patient's life was endangered with signs of cardio-respiratory failure. After preoperative diagnostic radiology, the tumour was surgically removed. Postoperatively, the patient's condition improved. No disease recurrence was diagnosed after a year. Conclusions. Giant solitary fibrous tumour of the pleura may cause serious and life-threatening conditions by causing compression of the pleural cavity with its expansive growth. Early diagnosis of the condition enables less aggressive as well as video-assisted thoracic surgery in patients with significantly better state of health. Large tumour surgeries in cardio-respiratory affected patients are highly risk-associated procedures.

Early postoperative serum carcinoembryonic antigen levels in patients operated for colorectal carcinoma - a new method for following-up
Bojan Veingerl, 2003, professional article

Abstract: Background. The only method of treatment offering a favourable prognosis for colorectal carcinoma is radical resection of the part of the colon or rectum including the pertaining lymph nodes and eventual radical removal of metastases. But even such presumably curative surgery does not warrant full recovery of all operated patients as recurrences are frequent and according tomost analyses 5-year survival is lower than 50%. Therefore, additional treatment is attempted in some patients. Various prognostic factor of disease recurrance are helful. One such prognostic sign is serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level measured soon after surgery. Conclusions. All patients with radical R0 resection, according to their postoperative serum CEA levels and the CEA half-life fall into three groups: CEA R0, CEA R1, and CEA R2 resected patients. A statistically significant difference regarding survival and number of recurrence was noted among patients categorized bz the stage of disease, particularly between the three groups of patients and the group having been undergone presumably curative surgery.
