Cluster of differentiation (CD) 44 is a cell surface receptor that correlates with the development of drug resistance in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Here, we prospectively investigated the clinical impact of CD44 expression on the development of chemoresistance, and on disease-free and overall survival in EOC. This study included patients with primary(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to detect possible risk factors for development of short- and long-term local complications after inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy for vulval cancer. METHODS This retrospective cohort study included 34 vulval cancer patients that received inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy. The detected complications were wound cellulitis,(More)
The idea of an automated whole breast ultrasound was developed three decades ago. We present our initial experiences with the latest technical advance in this technique, the automated breast volume scanner (ABVS) ACUSON S2000(™). Volume data sets were collected from 50 patients and a database containing 23 women with no detectable lesions in conventional(More)
Less than 1% of all breast cancer cases are found in men, who reportedly have inferior outcomes compared with matched women patients. Ethnic differences may also affect their prognosis. Here, we investigated overall survival (OS) and major prognostic factors for male breast cancer (MBC) in a cohort of Egyptian patients. We retrospectively analyzed OS in a(More)
OBJECTIVES Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is known to have unique molecular, clinical, and pathologic characteristics. The growth pattern of this cancer may also affect its appearance on sonography. Our study evaluated the sonographic features of TNBC according to the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System sonographic(More)
