Alterations to p53 seem to be of prognostic significance in soft tissue sarcomas, but their significance for synovial sarcomas has not been studied. We analysed 34 synovial sarcomas in 19 patients for p53 alterations (p53 gene mutations + p53 immunopositivity) and examined this factor for its prognostic value in a group of 15 primary tumours. DNA was(More)
On the basis of angiographic projections, left (n = 43) and right (n = 56) ventricular volume data were obtained in patients with tetralogy of Fallot before and after surgical repair. The postoperative patients were divided into 3 groups according to the degree of an additional volume load secondary to a residual ventricular septal defect or pulmonary(More)
Systolic and diastolic diameters of the right and left pulmonary arteries (RPAD, LPAD), descending thoracic aorta (DTAD), right ventricular infundibulum (RVID), and pulmonary and aortic valve roots at the proximal, commissural and distal levels were estimated from angiocardiograms in 24 infants, children, and adolescents without heart disease, and(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to estimate the capacity of pressure volume (PV) loop analysis to assess right ventricular (RV) function after Fallot (TOF) repair. PATIENTS Fifty six patients were examined after TOF repair. PV loops were constructed from RV angiocardiography and simultaneous pressure measurement. Patients were divided in three(More)
European states within the EEC are required to establish and use diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in X-ray examinations. However, up to now there have been no DRLs for cardiac catheterization in children, nor as a rule is the effective dose estimated. We have evaluated the dose-area products (DAPs) for three different types of angiocardiography systems(More)
In the paediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory the reduction of the radiation dose of diagnostic and interventional procedures is of high priority. Therefore, we performed an experimental study for optimizing the automatic exposure control (AEC) for cardiac angiography. With a Philips Integris BH 5000 system, six AEC programs were configured to(More)
The aim of this work is the three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of the left or right heart chamber from digital biplane angiograms. The approach used, the binary reconstruction, exploits the density information of subtracted ventriculograms from two orthogonal views in addition to the ventricular contours. The ambiguity of the problem is largely reduced(More)
To evaluate the influence of the 2-stage anatomic correction of simple transposition of the great arteries on left ventricular (LV) function, pressure and angiocardiographic volume data were analyzed during resting conditions shortly before banding of the pulmonary trunk (n = 12) and before (n = 17) and after anatomic correction (n = 11), and compared with(More)
On the basis of 21 life-like human casts (the method is described in the first paper of this series) the influence of (a) spatial orientation, (b) cardiac phase, and (c) biplane and single-plane methods of volume calculation on the accuracy of left ventricular (LV) angiocardiographic volume determination was quantitated. The best results are obtained, when(More)
Between 1976 and 1981, 27 patients with complete transposition of the great arteries, ranging from one month to 2 1/2 years, underwent two-stage anatomic correction and 7 patients first-stage operation only. There were three early deaths after the first-stage and five after the second-stage operation and no late deaths. In seven patients the results of(More)
