A retrospective review of 403 patients with salivary gland tumors seen between 1958 and 1980 and a mean follow-up of 10 years is reported. The median age was 58 (7-94) years and the male to female ratio 1.3:1. There were 293 (72%) parotid, 83 (21%) submaxillary and 27 (7%) tumors developed at other sites. Among these were 84 (22%) mucoepidermoid (all(More)
A retrospective study of 271 patients with parotid carcinoma seen between 1958 and 1980 is reported. Among these were 64 (24%) mucoepidermoid tumors (all degrees of differentiation), 50 (18%) adenocarcinomas, 40 (15%) malignant mixed tumors, 39 (14%) adenoid cystic carcinomas, 37 (14%) undifferentiated, 21 (8%) acinic, and 20 (7%) squamous cell carcinomas.(More)
Radiation therapy is increasingly used as a cancer treatment to avoid mutilating surgery. We first review the cancer sites where this role was first established (head and neck cancer, breast and prostate cancers). Then we examine the cancer sites where radiation treatments have only recently replaced amputation or other mutilating surgery (soft tissue(More)
An American black family in whom hemoglobin J Baltimore and beta (+)-thalassemia genes coexisted is described. The proposita is a 23-year-old woman with a hemoglobin (Hb) level of 11.5 g/dl, microcytic, hypochromic indices, increased values of Hbs A2 and F, and alpha/non-alpha synthetic ratio of 1.52. Hbs A and J Baltimore (beta 16 Gly---Asp) constituted(More)
It is customary to ablate residual tissue after near-total thyroidectomy for thyroid carcinoma by administering 131I. A recent trend has been to use lower 131I doses. This study was designed to assess the efficacy of thyroid ablation by 1110 MBq of 131I (30 mCi) in patients who had near-total thyroidectomy for papillary, mixed or follicular thyroid(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY Symptomatic status in aortic stenosis is not always related to hemodynamic severity as estimated by the aortic valve effective orifice area (AVA), and other factors may be involved. It has been seen previously that, whilst ejection fraction is preserved, left ventricular (LV) longitudinal shortening may be selectively(More)
