    This book aims at highlighting the present and very dynamic development in the field of pper GI cancers. Oesophageal and gastric cancer are diseases with poor prognosis. Looking back to ous efforts to treat these serious malignancies have been dated already to the ancient periods. The introductory chapter of this issue is therefore dedicated to history of gastric cancer that is tightly connected to history of development of surgical techniques. Surgery remains the basic cornerstone of the treatment of localized oesophageal and gastric cancer and chapters attributed to surgery delineate the sustained development either in classical surgical techniques but also an implementation of new technologies, especially robotic surgery into clinical practice.

ARTA treatment of metastatic castration‑resistant prostate cancer – case report

02/2021 MUDr. Igor Richter, Ph.D.; doc. MUDr. Josef Dvořák, Ph.D.; MUDr. Vladimír Šámal, Ph.D.; MUDr. Jiří Bartoš, MBA
The treatment landscape for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) has rapidly evolved over the past 10 years. The addition chemotherapy (docetaxel, cabazitaxel), androgen receptor targeted agents (ARTA - abiraterone, enzalutamide) and radium 223 has improved outcomes for patients with mCRPC. Abiraterone in our clinical practice is applied most often before the docetaxel-based chemotherapy. We present a case study of patient with mCRPC treated by abirateron (before chemotherapy) for four years.

Living with tetraplicity is a struggle

02/2021 MUDr. Jana Krejčí; MUDr. Petr Opálka, CSc., MBA; MUDr. Bc. Petr Zůna; MUDr. Daniel Krejčí; MUDr. Ferdinand Třebický; doc. MUDr. Norbert Pauk, Ph.D.
Multiple tumors are not common in oncology, but their proportion is increasing and they need attention. Our patient with tetraplicity (kidney cancer, laryngeal cancer and two bronchogenic carcinomas) is a demonstration of struggle and determination. Although all these diagnoses are serious and the patient has been treated since 2018, among other things, for the generalization of bronchogenic carcinoma to the brain, he has a zest for life and does not give up. He underwent operations, tracheostomy, gastrostomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In the near future, we will have to decide which treatment path to take next.

Lambert‑Eaton myasthenic syndrome and small cell lung cancer – case report

02/2021 MUDr. Daniel Krejčí; MUDr. Lukáš Hruška
Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) is an autoimmune, presynaptic disorder of neuromuscular transmission characterized by fluctuating muscle weakness, autonomic dysfunction and depressed tendon reflexes.1 The coappearance with small cell lung cancer happens to be typical and sometimes the symptoms may precede the radiological cancer confirmation. There is a symptomatic therapy of LEMS as a complement of the causal cancer treatment. This case report presents patient with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome and concurrent atypical long small cell lung cancer survival.
