In about 1-2% of the population an incomplete regression of the embryonic mammary line occurs, which may result in the presence of ectopic breast tissue. An ectopic breast tissue carcinoma is a rare entity. The authors present a case-report of a 51-year-old female patient, with a lobular carcinoma in an axillary ectopic breast tissue submitted to surgery(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was aimed at describing a single-institution experience in the curative treatment of patients diagnosed with locally advanced hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data concerning all patients treated for locally advanced hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma between January 2006 and June 2012 were(More)
In the past years there has been crescent global awareness on issues of sustainability. Many social and ecological movements were created in response to the sense of global crisis and the need for a sustainable future. One such movement was Permaculture. Permaculture is a recognised path to sustainable culture which was created by Right Livelihood award(More)
Genetic and genomic analysis of nucleic acids from environmental samples has helped transform our perception of the Earth’s subsurface as a major reservoir of microbial novelty. Many of the microbial taxa living in the subsurface are under-represented in culture-dependent investigations. In this regard, metagenomic analyses of subsurface environments(More)
Thymomas are rare neoplasms that have an indolent growth with a preferentially intra-thoracic dissemination pattern. Surgery is currently the standard treatment of thymomas; however radiotherapy is often used in an adjuvant setting due to a high sensitivity of these tumors to such treatment. Postoperative entire hemithoracic irradiation has been used in(More)
Introduction: Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive tumor of the central nervous system. Despite advances in its management, overall prognosis remains poor, with a median survival time of less than one year. Good response to chemotherapy with temozolomide (TMZ) is usually associated with methylation of the promoter of the O(6)-methylguanine-DNA(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the radiographic images of the femoral insertion of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), in order to assist the creation of anatomical femoral tunnels during surgeries, and to be used as parameters in postoperative evaluation of the location of these tunnels. METHODS Thirty adult cadaver knees were used. The PCL anterolateral (AL)(More)
This paper proposes an architecture to classify traffic flows of IP access networks, and signalize to hybrid optical network the most appropriate paradigm, Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) and Optical Burst Switching (OBS), to be used. The concept of software defined networks, more specifically the OpenFlow technology, was used to enable the architecture.(More)
