Currently available intramedullary devices for the treatment of unstable pertrochanteric femoral fractures are technically demanding and show a considerable failure rate due to their massiveness and the persistent rotational instability of the head-neck fragment. The Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen (AO/ASIF) therefore designed a new(More)
BACKGROUND Breast-conserving surgery for palpable breast cancer is associated with tumour-involved margins in up to 41% of cases and excessively large excision volumes. Ultrasound-guided surgery has the potential to resolve both of these problems, thereby improving surgical accuracy for palpable breast cancer. We aimed to compare ultrasound-guided surgery(More)
BACKGROUND The use of ultrasonography (US) in diagnostic breast imaging is increasing. Restricting US to subgroups of patients who benefit most would result in a more efficient and effective application. This study assessed the diagnostic value of US as an adjunct to mammography (MAM) and a clinical examination (CE) in the diagnosis of breast cancer and the(More)
OBJECTIVE The clinical breast tumour size can be assessed preoperatively by physical examination, mammography and ultrasound. At present it is not clear which modality correlates best with the histological invasive breast tumour size. This prospective study aims to determine the most accurate clinical method (physical examination, mammography or ultrasound)(More)
Nandrolone decanoate (Deca-Durabolin) was injected intramuscularly into healthy volunteers. One group of females received one injection of 100 mg and three groups of males received one injection of 200 mg, two repeat injections of 100 mg or four repeat injections of 50 mg respectively. The serum levels of nandrolone (19-nortestosterone) were determined by(More)
BACKGROUND Breast-conserving surgery for breast cancer was developed as a method to preserve healthy breast tissue, thereby improving cosmetic outcomes. Thus far, the primary aim of breast-conserving surgery has been the achievement of tumour-free resection margins and prevention of local recurrence, whereas the cosmetic outcome has been considered less(More)
We report a case of a recurrent traumatic dislocation of the hip joint in a young man at the age of 13 and 17. The patient had retroversion of the femoral neck, instead of a physiological anteversion. We found no consensus about the management of a recurrent traumatic dislocation of the hip joint in the literature. The various therapeutic options are(More)
Data regarding the benefits for the complete video-assisted thoracic surgery (c-VATS) lobectomy over the open lobectomy are numerous. This article describes the experience of introducing this technique in a training hospital, the first reported cohort in The Netherlands. From March 2006 to November 2008, all patients operated on for proven or suspected lung(More)
Congenital hemangiopericytoma is a rare tumor consisting of capillaries surrounded by pericytes. Only histologically can the tumor be distinguished from other vascular hamartomas. For a long time the congenital type was considered benign; however, metastases have recently been described. A histologic diagnosis of all soft-tissue sarcomas should be made. We(More)
