The effect of surgical/conservative approach is debated. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to determine the effect of the surgical and conservative approaches on the metabolic syndrome in patients(More)

Ten patients with intracranial malignancies were studied by radioimmunoscintigraphy with I-131 BC-2 MoAb. Sensitivity and specificity of radioimmunoimaging were determined and compared with the results obtained with computed X-ray tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. BC-2 MoAb is a murine IgG1 anti-tenascin, which is not expressed by adult normal(More)
The aim of this study was to present our experience with laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Over the period from January 2000 to January 2007, 60 patients (40 M, 20 F; mean age: 52.5 years; range: 16-77 years) underwent adrenalectomy in our department. Five patients were submitted to bilateral adrenalectomy, thus making a total of 65 cases. The indications were(More)
