Angioleiomyomas are benign mesenchymal tumours commonly occurring in the subcutis of extremities. They are typically composed of interlacing fascicles of smooth muscle cells with intermingling vascular channels. Angioleiomyomas of the uterus are rare and unique variant with only very few case reports available in literature. Herein, we report a case of this(More)
The patient was a 68-year-old male, who underwent total gastrectomy for giant leiomyosarcoma of the stomach and then had multiple hepatic metastases one year and six months later. Thus, transarterial hepatic chemo-embolization therapy with Lipiodol, adriamycin and gelfoam was given. Moreover, using a reservoir catheter and infusion arterial port,(More)
We describe a case of a 58-year-old woman with right inguinal lymph node swelling and a T1 tumor in the right breast. She was referred with an 18-month history of the former complaint and a six-month history of the latter. Excisional biopsy of the inguinal lymph node revealed breast cancer metastasis. Radiographical examination showed no metastases to the(More)
A 74-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a chief complaint of severe local pain of the hip joint. Radiological findings showed a metastasized lesion on the left side of the pelvic wall originated from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the anterior segment of the liver. Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) therapy using epirubicin, Lipiodol(More)
A 63-year-old female with locally advanced breast cancer was treated with preoperative chemotherapy using docetaxel. The therapeutic regimen was comprised of four cycles at 3-week intervals. One cycle consisted of 80 mg of docetaxel which was administered on day 1. A remarkable response was confirmed. The side effects such as leukopenia, general fatigue and(More)
Hepatic arterial chemotherapy was performed for 27 patients with primary (3), metastatic liver cancer (21), and 3 other cases, over a period of 8 years. Chemotherapy was performed by intermittent hepatic arterial infusion of 5-FU or FAM (in case of metastatic tumor from colorectal cancer), FAM (from gastric cancer), and CDDP or Farmorubicin (HCC). Hepatic(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is likely to be detected as multiple intrahepatic metastases, and trans-arterial embolization (TAE) is the treatment of choice. However, other therapy is needed when TAE is not effective for a tumor. We performed partial liver resection with small skin incision in two such patients. One patient had two HCCs of segment 6 (S6)(More)
Recently microwave tissue coagulation therapy (MCT) has been established as a therapeutic procedure for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The route of approach to penetrate the tumor is two-fold: By the percutaneous route (PMCT) or by conventional laparotomy. PMCT has the advantage of less invasive therapy, however, it is not applicable to a tumor that cannot(More)
The conventional methods (CM) of intraarterial (IA) chemotherapy for inflammatory breast cancer were catheterizations from superior epigastric and brachial artery under general anesthesia. Since 1997, we selected the Seldinger's methods (SM) for ten cases of the disease to control local effects and simplify the technique. Complications of the SM were(More)
Three cases of carcinomatous cardiac tamponade from breast cancer are presented. All patients have had another recurrence and history of treatment. Though the prognoses were considered to be unfavorable, pericardiac drainage and the instillation of epirubicin were effective. Side effects of fever and dyspnea were experienced temporarily by two patients with(More)
