The aim of this study was to assess the patient's clinical outcome following complete or incomplete surgical staging in cases treated for an early stage low-malignant-potential ovarian tumour (LMPOT). One-hundred and one patients treated between 1965 and 1998 for a early stage I LMPOT were reviewed according to whether the initial surgical staging was(More)
We assessed the clinical outcome after hysterectomy in patients with bulky residual disease after chemoradiotherapy for stage IB2/II cervical carcinoma. Subjects were 10 patients who had bulky (>2 cm) residual disease in the cervix after external radiotherapy (45 Gy) combined with concomitant chemotherapy (cisplatin 40 mg/m2/week) and uterovaginal(More)
PURPOSE Our aims were to assess the feasibility of imaging hypoxia in cervical carcinoma with (18)F-fluoroerythronitroimidazole ((18)F-FETNIM) and to compare (18)F-FETNIM uptake with metabolic uptake of (18)F-FDG. PATIENTS AND METHODS We included 16 patients with cervical carcinoma. After imaging with FDG, (18)F-FETNIM PET/CT was performed and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this article is to report 3 cases of port-site implantation after laparoscopic treatment of a borderline ovarian tumor. CASES Three patients underwent a laparoscopic procedure for a serous (2 patients) or mucinous (1 patient) borderline ovarian tumor. In 2 patients, the port-site implantation was discovered during a later surgical(More)
BACKGROUND To describe characteristics of patients with nodal spread and the anatomy of pelvic and para-aortic node involvement in primary fallopian tube carcinoma. STUDY DESIGN Between 1985 and 2003, 19 women with primary fallopian tube carcinoma underwent systematic bilateral pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy up to the level of the left renal vein.(More)
BACKGROUND To report the rates of nodal involvement in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) in patients who underwent initial lymphadenectomy (before chemotherapy) and patients who underwent lymphadenectomy after chemotherapy. STUDY DESIGN The rates of nodal involvement in 205 patients with EOC who underwent complete bilateral pelvic and para-aortic(More)
To determine the exportability of the criteria defined by the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group Z0011 trial for selecting patients who are eligible for omitting completion axillary lymph node dissection (cALND) after a positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy result and to investigate whether not following the Z0011 criteria might affect patient(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopy classically reduces morbidity and invasiveness. To decrease the operative morbidity associated with exenteration, we considered the possibility of performing a total pelvic exenteration by the laparoscopic approach. CASE A 34-year-old woman presented with a cervical cancer relapse. The bladder, uterus, vagina, ovaries, and rectum(More)
The fetal iliac wings angle was studied in 255 fetuses before amniocentesis at 16.7 weeks (+/- 1.3), using a sonographic axial view of the fetal pelvis. The measurement could be performed in 208 fetuses (81.6%), of whom 4 had trisomy 21 (T 21). The mean iliac angle was greater in fetuses with T 21 than in normal fetuses (69.8 degrees vs. 88.7 degrees; p =(More)
