Chondrosarcoma of the patella: A case report.
 

Author(s): Conglin Ye, Zhiping Luo, Jin Zeng, Min Dai

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Sep;96(37):e8049.

 

Chondrosarcoma, characterized by the production of cartilage matrix, is a common bone tumor, accounting for 20% to 27% of all malignant bone tumors. It often occurs in the cartilage of the pelvis, femur, tibia, and humerus. However, chondrosarcoma of the patella is extremely rare.

MiR-129-5p Inhibits Proliferation and Invasion of Chondrosarcoma Cells by Regulating SOX4/Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling Pathway.
 

Author(s): Peng Zhang, Jifeng Li, Yuze Song, Xiao Wang

Journal: Cell. Physiol. Biochem.. 2017 ;42(1):242-253.

 

Recently, microRNAs (miRNA) have been identified as novel regulators in Chondrosarcoma (CHS). This study was aimed to identify the roles of miR-129-5p-5p in regulation of SOX4 and Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, as well as cell proliferation and apoptosis in chondrosarcomas.

Is intralesional resection suitable for central grade 1 chondrosarcoma: A systematic review and updated meta-analysis.
 

Author(s): X Chen, L J Yu, H M Peng, C Jiang, C H Ye, S B Zhu, W W Qian

Journal: Eur J Surg Oncol. 2017 Sep;43(9):1718-1726.

 

The surgical choice for grade 1 chondrosarcoma has been debated for decades. Intralesional resection can minimize the damage caused by surgery and offer better functional outcome. However, controversy remains about whether it will result in higher rates of local recurrence and metastasis, ...
