A regime of cis-platin (CDDP) (80 mg/m2) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (1000 mg/m2/day, day 1 to 5) repeated after 21 days, was prospectively analyzed in 12 advanced epidermoid cervical cancers as first treatment, prior to radiotherapy (neoadjuvant chemotherapy), and in 30 cases of progressive, recurrent or metastatic disease after radiotherapy (salvage(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We have examined a new technique for the thermal treatment of prostate cancer involving the percutaneous placement of small magnetic alloy rods into the gland in a procedure analogous to the placement of permanent brachytherapy seeds. When the patient and the implanted rods are placed in an extracorporeal alternating magnetic field,(More)
OBJECTIVE The main objective of this study was to assess semen characteristics of patients with testicular cancer before cryopreservation and after thawing, to evaluate the consequences of this technique on sperm quality in patients with testicular cancer. METHODS Five hundred eighty-nine samples from 543 patients with testicular cancer were cryopreserved(More)
A group of 24 couples with unexplained infertility was scheduled for in-vitro fertilization and tubal embryo transfer between May 1989 and September 1990. In the same period, in-vitro fertilization and intrauterine transfer of embryos was planned in a control group of 44 women with tubal infertility. The mean age and duration of infertility were similar in(More)
Donor intrauterine insemination with washed spermatozoa (fresh semen) was performed in 36 women (63 cycles) whose husbands had azoospermia due to primary or secondary testicular failure. Simultaneously a control group of 76 couples (156 cycles) with proven fertility, who had recently discontinued mechanical non-hormonal contraception, were encouraged to(More)
This review describes the role of the epididymis in human infertility, by analysing the results of epididymovasostomies which confirm that the more distal the site of obstruction the greater the chance of fertility. The use of epididymal spermatozoa for in vitro fertilization (IVF) yielded poor results in contrast to intracytoplasmic sperm injection using(More)
