PURPOSE Cerebral ischemia is a known complication of carotid cross-clamping during carotid endarterectomy. Selective intraluminal shunting for cerebral protection is not always effective and carries risks. The purpose of this study was to identify potentially modifiable risk factors for intraoperative cerebral ischemia and shunting during carotid… (More)
Detection of structural defects or absence of cytoskeletal proteins are known to be involved in pathogenesis of microcytic anemias. Venous blood samples were collected in heparinised tubes. The protein composition of the erythrocyte membranes was analysed by densitometry after their separation on SDS-PAGE. We studied 17 cases of congenital microcytic anemia… (More)
We analyzed 444 patients operated on in our clinic. Triple test diagnosis is the modern trend. Surgical treatment is not justified in all cases. When needed, partial mastectomy is commonly used. Surgical principles must be respected for good cosmetic results. Histopathology only certifies the diagnostic.

Atypical hyperplasia is considered significant risk factor for malignancy. Women in this category need close surveillance.
