METHODS Information on all aspects of male breast cancer was(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the association of chromosomal polymorphic variations with infertility and subfertility. DESIGN A comparative case-controlled association study using cytogenetic techniques to compare the frequency of chromosomal variations in infertile individuals versus fertile controls. SETTING Department of Infertility Management and Assisted(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) has transformed the technique of implant-based breast reconstruction. It offers the option of a one-stage procedure and is felt to have benefits in cosmetic outcome but the medium and long-term outcomes are unknown.
