The surgical treatment and outcome of 31 women with a pathologic diagnosis of cystosarcoma phyllodes at Roswell Park Memorial Institute were reviewed. Surgical excision was performed upon 20 patients with a mean tumor size of 4.5 centimeters (range of 1.0 to 9.0 centimeters). Mastectomy was performed initially upon 11 patients with a mean tumor size of 15(More)
Appendicectomy for acute appendicitis is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Our unit policy has been to conduct pathological examination of all resected specimens, however this practice has recently been questioned. We therefore sought to analyse the utility of routine histological examination of appendicectomy specimens. A consecutive(More)
Anastomotic leakage presents the most feared complication after low anterior resection (LAR). A proximal diversion of the gastrointestinal tract is recommended to avoid septic complications of anastomotic leakage. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the benefits and risks of diverting ileostomy (DI) created during laparoscopic LAR because of low(More)
The authors present an unusual and, according to the available literature data, so far unused method--management of the rectovaginal fistule, using a T.E.M. technique (transanal endoscopic microsurgery). In their case-review of a female patient, they present advantages of this technique in a case of a rare disorder - a benign rectovaginal fistule. All of(More)
The authors present results of a study of a distal intramural spread of the rectal carcinoma beneath its aboral margin, which was conducted over several years. The authors closely cooperated with the Pathological Anatomy Institute of the Faculty Hospital in Ostrava, where each preparation was examined not only macro- and microscopically, but also the(More)
BACKGROUND: The Czech Republic is one of the countries with the highest incidence of rectal cancer. Distal intramural spread below the palpable edge of a rectal cancer is unusual and a sign of very advanced or highly malignant disease. Submucosal spread occurs in approximately 10% of cases and indicates poor prognosis, regardless of type of operation. The(More)
The authors present results of modality and immunomodulating treatment of breast cancer. In the treatment they use levamizole (Decaris) which has useful properties, as compared with other immunomodulating drugs--accurate dosage, simple administration and good tolerance. In a group of 84 patients it was administered after operation after adjuvant(More)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of standard pathological protocol implementation on the quality of colorectal cancer specimen evaluation. MATERIAL AND METHODS The standard protocol for(More)
Acute pseudobstruction of the large intestine is also termed the "Ogilvie" syndrome. The life- threatening condition without obvious mecha nical obstruction of the intestine, results from a major enlargement of the large intestine, which, if no therapy is initiated on time, may result in perforation of the right- sided colon, most commonly of the caecum.
