AIMS AND BACKGROUND The DIANA (Diet and Androgens)-5 study is a multi-institutional randomized controlled trial of the effectiveness of a diet based on Mediterranean and macrobiotic recipes and principles, associated with moderate physical activity, in reducing additional breast cancer events in women with early stage invasive breast cancer at high risk of(More)
Women who were previously treated for breast cancer (BC) are an important particular subgroup of women at intermediate BC risk. Their breast follow-up should be planned taking in consideration a 1.0–1.5 % annual rate of loco-regional recurrences and new ipsilateral or contralateral BCs during 15–20 years, and be based on a regional/district invitation(More)
In 67 patients with two-thirds gastrectomy and endoscopically proven stomal ulcer, serum gastrin levels were measured under basal conditions and after intravenous infusion of bombesin (15 ng/kg/min), calcium (4 mg/kg/hour) and secretion (2 units/kg). All patients underwent medical or surgical therapy. The long-term results were evaluated according to the(More)
At the Surgery Department of Biella 46 patients were enrolled in a study on the sentinel lymph node (SN) in the period from 1 January 1999 to 30 September 1999. The aim of the study was to determine, on the basis of our own experience, the percentages of accuracy and concordance, and compare them with case series abroad and in Italy; in addition, we sought(More)
A case of colo-colic invagination caused by lipoma of the splenic flexure which led to emergency operation is reported. Colon lipomas are benign neoformations of the submucosa with prevalence of the right colon and with a frequency of from 0.3% to 5.8% in the whole population depending on clinical or autoptic series. Radiological and endoscopic(More)
This position paper, issued by ICBR/SIRM and GISMa, summarizes the evidence on DBT and provides recommendations for its use. In the screening setting, DBT in adjunct to digital mammography (DM) increased detection rate by 0.5–2.7‰ and decreased false positives by 0.8–3.6% compared to DM alone in observational and double-testing experimental studies. The(More)
BACKGROUND In the preoperative setting of breast cancer, fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) guided by ultrasonography can be used to detect axillary lymph node metastases. The aim of the current study was to determine whether measurement in needle washouts of CYFRA 21-1, a soluble fragment of cytokeratin 19 (CK19), can improve the diagnosis of lymph node(More)
Reference is made to an experimental and clinical investigation of single-layer intestinal anastomoses. The techniques of Gambee, D'Onofrio, Lembert, Halsted Connel were applied in six groups of 10 rabbits. The survival and weight data, gross and microscopic inspection, and the stenosis index showed that the best results were obtained with Halsted's,(More)
Eight patients were subjected to two types of preoperative investigation in the attempt to stage cancers localised in the final 13 cm of the rectum: CT scan and transrectal echography. CT scan was used to assess infiltration of perirectal tissues and any lymph node metastases. Echography was used to examine the degree of infiltration of the rectal wall.(More)
