  1. 1. Synovial sarcoma : a Scandinavian sarcoma group project

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm Söder Hospital

    Author : Björn Skytting; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synovial sarcoma; prognosis; tumor size; poorly differentiated; histologic grading; Ki-67; proliferation; CGH; secondary aberrations; RT-PCR; translocation; SYT-SSX1 SYT-SSX2;

    Abstract : Synovial sarcoma accounts for 5 to 10 % of all soft tissue sarcomas. More than 90 % are found in the extremities or trunk wall. Characteristic for synovial sarcoma is the translocation t(X; 18) (p11.2;q11. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic Profiling in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine Doctoral Dissertation

    Author : Princy Francis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; synovial sarcoma; prognosis; Cytology; SS18-SSX; intratumor heterogeneity; aCGH; array comparative genomic hybridization; gene expression analysis; microarray; cDNA; Soft tissue sarcoma; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a heterogeneous group of highly malignant mesenchymal tumors that account for ~1% of all malignancies. Frequent heterogeneity and pleomorphism along with suboptimal diagnostic reproducibility and insufficient prognostic markers make clinical management of these tumors difficult. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electron Microscopy in Diagnostic Pathology with Reference to Mesenchymal Tumors

    University dissertation from Department of Histopathology, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Birgitta Carlén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synovial sarcoma; Kaposi´s sarcoma; epithelioid sarcoma; parachordoma; alveolar soft part sarcoma; small cell malignant tumors of childhood and adolescence; cultured cells; surgical specimens; Transmission electron microscopy; fine needle aspiration; General pathology; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi;

    Abstract : The experience acquired over a period of 15 years of diagnostic electron microscopy of fine needle aspirates and surgical specimens constitutes the base for this thesis. Some of the tumors analyzed represent rare soft tissue tumors, and consequently not very often ultrastructurally described. READ MORE

  4. 4. The complexity of prognostication in musculoskeletal sarcomas. An analysis of four illustrative entities

    University dissertation from Department of Histopathology, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Peter Bergh; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sarcoma; surgery; pathology; extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma; synovial sarcoma; chordoma; chondrosarcoma;

    Abstract : Although malignant musculoskeletal tumors are rare, they encompass numerous entities with a wide morphological, clinical and prognostic spectrum. Sarcoma surgery is particularly demanding. Treatment must take into account the lesionís inherent biologic behavior, anatomic location and individual patient factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Synovial sarcoma : molecular, biological and clinical implications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Maria Törnkvist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synovial sarcoma; translocations; fusion genes; SS18-SSX; IGF-1R; cyclin D1; antisense oligodeoxynucleotides.;

    Abstract : Synovial sarcoma is a rare but mostly aggressive soft tissue tumor that mainly affects children and young adults. The tumor usually occurs in the vicinity of large joints, and may be subdivided into a classical biphasic type, a monophasic type or a poorly differentiated type, depending on histomorphological appearance.
