Clinical, pathologic, and autopsy records of 53 patients who had localized adenocarcinoma of the proximal colon and had undergone potentially curative surgery were analyzed to define ultimate patterns of recurrence and final patterns of dissemination. Ten patients (19%) died with locoregional recurrence alone (operative bed and retroperitoneal nodes). Liver(More)
Sixteen patients with mycosis fungoides were treated with a 3.3 MeV skin electron beam to a dose of 30 Gy over 40 days. Nine patients achieved a complete remission which was generally short. Only two patients remained free of disease one year following treatment. All patients received palliative benefit from treatment, but no significant increase in(More)
Seven hundred ninety-five patients were adenocarcinomas of the proximal colon were reviewed. Two hundred forty-five patients presented with disseminated disease at the time of diagnosis, and were analyzed to identify mechanisms and sites of disease spread. Five hundred fifty patients underwent radical resection, and were followed for a minimum of 48 months(More)
Three hundred and fifty-five patients with primary adenocarcinoma of the sigmoid colon were retrospectively reviewed. One hundred and eighteen patients who had disseminated disease at diagnosis were analyzed to identify sites and mechanisms of disease spread. Two hundred and thirty-seven patients treated by surgery alone with curative intent were analyzed(More)
Sixty-four patients with primary adenocarcinomas of the colon proximal to the peritoneal reflection underwent exploratory laparotomy at the time of first recurrence of their cancers. Local recurrence, retroperitoneal lymph node metastases, parenchymal liver metastases, and diffuse peritoneal seeding were identified as frequent components of the overall(More)
One hundred twenty-seven patients with previously untreated primary carcinomas of proximal, retroperitoneal large bowel were retrospectively analyzed. Sites of involvement in 33 patients with surgically incurable (disseminated) disease were analyzed to define patterns of initial spread. Ninety-four patients were analyzed following attempted curative(More)
Between January 1960 and September 1972, 104 patients with limited epithelial carcinoma of the ovary received intraperitoneal radiocolloid. Fifty-six of these patients also received external beam radiation therapy to the pelvis (pelvic RT). Five-year actuarial no-evidence-of-disease survival rates were 95% for stage Iai, 82% for Iaii, 73% for Ib, 67% for(More)
One hundred and forty-three patients with previously untreated primary adenocarcinomas of the cecum were analyzed. Fifty-three patients manifesting disseminated disease at diagnosis were analyzed to define mechanisms of disease spread. Ninety patients were analyzed following attempted curative resection to determine anatomical distribution of initial(More)
