Urinary and sexual dysfunctions are frequent after surgery for rectal cancer. Total mesorectal excision (TME) improves local recurrence and survival rates, and does not hamper recognition and sparing of hypogastric and pelvic splanchnic nerves. It is not known how laparoscopic rectal resection could change functional complication rates. From a global series(More)
Retroperitoneal fibrosis is an uncommon disease in which dense fibrous tissue proliferates in the retroperitoneum. It frequently consists in an abdominal mass involving alimentary structures, ureters with obstruction, and vascular elements with stenosis. This pathological event may be associated with a history of ergotamine usage or a wide range of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to prove if dynamic HASTE (half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin-echo) sequences can be used in the diagnosis of internal derangement disorders of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) as an alternative to static proton density (PD) weighted/turbo spin echo (TSE) T2-weighted sequences which are considered up to now as(More)
Nowadays neuroendocrine breast cancer is a rare entity, though the presence of neuroendocrine cells is often detected within breast cancers. Most of these tumours are associated with conventional ductal or globular breast cancers. We describe the case of neuroendocrine cancer of the breast and discuss its clinical, radiological and cytological aspects.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study is to demonstrate the role of ultrasound as a first-line technique in the evaluation of sesamoid bones of the first metacarpophalangeal joint. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a 2 years period, we enrolled 117 healthy people, 60 men and 57 women, age range 24-35 years, mean 29 ± 4. We analysed both their ulnar and radial(More)
The incidence of gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) has increased in recent years. A number of authors have attempted to define the actual nature of these tumours. Immunohistochemistry highlighting the positivity of tyrosine-kinase (CD117/c-Kit) has revealed the difference between gastrointestinal stromal tumours and other mesenchymal tumours and,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of computed tomography colonography (CTC) in the preoperative staging in patients with abdominal pain for occlusive colorectal cancer (CRC) and to compare the results of CTC with the surgical ones. PATIENTS AND METHODS 127 patients with abdominal pain, iron deficiency anemia and(More)
