Renal denervation (RDN) is a promising therapy for resistant hypertension. RDN is assumed to decrease sympathetic activity. Consequently, RDN can potentially increase renal oxygenation. Blood oxygen level-dependent MRI (BOLD-MRI) provides a non-invasive tool to determine renal oxygenation in humans. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect(More)
AIM To report the role of liver angiography in the staging of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty MTC patients with persistent or recurrent hypercalcitonemia (n=49), a characteristic general symptom (diarrhea, n=4) or a normal basal calcitonin level without general symptoms (n=7) were investigated by dynamic liver CT, MRI(More)
Physical examination, cervical ultrasonography (US) and aspiration cytology are the mainstays of the preoperative diagnostics of papillary thyroid carcinoma. For the staging of suspected malignant cases, cervical and mediastinal CT (MRI for inconclusive results) is indicated before any surgery. The end-result of primary treatment is assessed by total-body(More)
The data on 356 laryngectomies during a 12-year period were analysed retrospectively. The operations were divided into three groups: group I, laryngectomy alone; group II, laryngectomy and secondary neck dissection; group III, one-stage laryngectomy and radical neck dissection. Most patients had advanced disease (stage III and IV: 54.5% and 23.9%,(More)
In spite of the continued expansion of non-surgical therapeutic modalities surgery still plays an important role in the treatment of head and neck cancer. Parallel with the use of conventional approaches, more sophisticated surgical approaches, like the use of laser in oncologic surgery, appeared with a more favorable outcome. Laser is a precise surgical(More)
Oral cancer incidence in Hungary is strikingly high, even by international standards. In most cases the tumours are to be treated in advanced stage. Hence it follows that we are often forced to remove a part of the mandible, too. We usually use a fibula free flap to reconstruct the bone deficiency. In this paper we report on our clinical experience with(More)
BACKGROUND: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy has an increasing role in multimodality treatment of advanced head and neck cancer. In this paper we summarize our first results with this treatment. METHOD: Thirty-five, previously untreated, mostly inoperable head and neck cancer patients were given two cycles of Cisplatin and 5FU chemotherapy. We continued the therapy(More)
Serum thyroglobulin (Tg) is a suitable marker for differentiated thyroid carcinoma following total thyroid ablation. Between 1998 and 2003, serum samples from 715 papillary and 179 follicular tumor patients treated with total/nearly total thyroidectomy and radioiodine ablation therapy were collected. According to the "Guidelines for Oncotherapy in Hungary",(More)
The incidence of head and neck cancer has been rapidly increasing in Hungary during the last decade. Most of these tumors are discovered in advanced stage, consequently, surgical removal of the tumor results in large complex defects in the soft tisses and bone elements of the face and neck. For optimal anatomical and functional reconstruction we perform(More)
