A tumour-associated trypsin inhibitor (TATI) and the cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) were measured pre- or peroperatively in 30 patients with mucinous ovarian tumours (10 malignant, two borderline and 18 benign) to investigate the separate and combined use of the two markers as a diagnostic tool. In the malignant and borderline cases considered as a whole, TATI… (More)
In a cross-sectional study we investigated the relationship between muscle and bone parameters in the mid-thigh in older people using data from a single axial computed tomographic section through the mid-thigh. Additionally, we studied the association of these variables with incident low-trauma lower limb fractures. A total of 3,762 older individuals (1,838… (More)

Stenosing tendovaginitis of the third compartment is a rare condition in non theumatoid patients. The extensor pollicis longus (EPL) muscle extending into the tight third compartment can explain the clinical findings in some cases.
Cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) and cancer-associated serum antigen (CASA) were measured in 24 women with pelvic masses before and after a gynaecological examination and ultrasonography. CA 125 decreased median 16% after manipulation (P < 0.0001) and CASA decreased median 8% (P = 0.0077). The decline was found in patients with benign tumours as well as in… (More)
