OncoReview https://journalsmededu.pl/index.php/OncoReview <p>The main area of <em>OncoReview’s </em>&nbsp;scientific mission is the emerging field of interdisciplinary oncology, with particular emphasis on cardio-oncology. Scientific papers published in the journal concern modern diagnostic and therapeutic methods used in this population of patients, as well as all adverse events related to anticancer treatment. Objective assessment of the benefits and risks of new oncological drugs is a unique benefit of the published works.&nbsp;<br><span lang="en-GB"><br></span><span lang="en-GB"><strong>e-ISSN: </strong>2450-6125&nbsp; <strong>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; DOI: </strong>10.24292/01.OR<br><br><strong>Indexed in:&nbsp;</strong></span><strong>SCOPUS</strong>: SJR = 0.125; SNIP = 0.099<br><span lang="en-GB">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Polish Journals Master List:&nbsp;<strong>20 points</strong>&nbsp;<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Index Copernicus: 116.25&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Google Scholar<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Polish Medical Bibliography</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Medical Education sp. z o.o. en-US OncoReview 2450-6125 <p><strong>Copyright: © Medical Education sp. z o.o.</strong>&nbsp;This is an Open Access article distributed under the terms of the Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0).

Most patients complain of lower urinary track symptoms. In 20% of cases patients remain asymptomatic.</p> <p><strong>Objective</strong>: The aim of this study was to investigate the topic of bladder leiomyomas, present our experience in the management of this neoplasm and review the published data concerning this rare entity.</p> <p><strong>Material and methods</strong>: From March 2018 to February 2021 three patients (2 females, 1 male) aged 39 to 58 years (mean 49.3 years) were treated for bladder leiomyoma in our center.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: Two patients underwent en bloc transurethral resection of bladder tumor and one had laparoscopic partial cystectomy. Tumors were located in favourable positions with the mean diameter of 37.67 mm. The mean operative time was 46.67 min (range from 15 to 95 min). At the mean follow-up time of 36 months. None of our patients had a recurrence of bladder leiomyoma.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: Properly performed removal of bladder leiomyoma gives satisfactory results. Transurethral resection of bladder tumor is the gold standard of treatment, highly valued for its safety and minimal invasiveness, however in cases of unfavourable located or large tumors laparoscopic approach or EBRT with defragmentation or morcellation may be preferred.</p> Maciej Przudzik Maria Derkaczew Mirosław Łesiów Marek Roslan Copyright (c) 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 12 3(47) 59 64 10.24292/01.OR.123301922 Stomach metastasis from breast cancer-mimicking linitis plastica—A case report https://journalsmededu.pl/index.php/OncoReview/article/view/2000 <p>We report a rare case of metastatic gastric cancer from invasive carcinoma of the breast (BC) as the first<br>symptom of disease-mimicking primary gastric linitis plastica.</p> Katarzyna Czerko Michał Ostrowski Lubomir Bodnar Copyright (c) 2022 Medical Education https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 12 3(47) 65 57 10.24292/01.OR.123300922
