Adrenal rests are usually unrecognized during operation, and the incidence of ectopic adrenal cortical tissue in pediatric patients during inguinal surgery procedures is unknown. We performed 3028 groin surgical explorations in 2680 patients aged 1 month to 17 years. Ectopic adrenal tissue was found in 69 inguinal operations (2.2%): 37 during 1.524(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the MRI appearance of the ligaments within the external space of the lumbar intervertebral foramen by correlating MR images with the corresponding anatomic dissection of the cadaver lumbar spine. This was a two part study. Part I of the anatomic study consisted of the dissection of lumbar specimens from one embalmed(More)
Osteoid osteoma is a small benign bone lesion. It generally affects children and young adults. Traditional treatment of osteoid osteoma includes excision either by wide resection, or by the removal of the nidus using curettes and burrs after opening the overlying cortex. Newly developed techniques involve percutaneous ablation of the tumor by computed(More)
PURPOSE To find out the trends of distribution in different histological types of lung cancer in both genders in a period of 20 years. METHODS The most frequent histological types of lung cancer in tissue specimens obtained by bronchoscopy or percutaneous needle biopsy were analysed in terms of age and gender. The studied population included 6289 patients(More)
The measurement of the area of a shapeless plane region is one of the basic problems in traditional calculus. In order to calculate the 'true' area of such a region, we have superimposed a net of identical squares on this region, counted the squares containing at least one point of the region, and calculated the sum of the areas of said squares. This sum(More)
UNLABELLED Patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) usually undergo toxic treatment (chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy). They can experience devastating effects of illness and therapies on their psychological and emotional well-being. On the other hand, untreated psychological distress is associated with reduced quality of life and(More)
INTRODUCTION Elbow fractures account for 7-9% of all fractures in childhood, while the supracondylar type is the most common (up to 70%). 84% of all supracondylar elbow fractures occur under the age of 10 years (most often between the age of 5 and 8). The aim of this study was to present the technique and results of treatment of supracondylar fractures with(More)
The objective of this study was to assess health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In Serbia, there is the lack of available data on HRQoL in lung cancer patients. The special attention in our study has been paid on relationships between socio-economic factors and HRQoL. This cross-sectional study(More)
INTRODUCTION High-energy traumas are open or closed injuries caused by force (missile, traffic injuries, crush or blust injuries, falling from heights), affecting the body surface and transferring high amount of kinetic energy inducing great damage to the tissue. Management of such lower extremity injuries has evolved over past several decades, but still(More)
is estimated to occur in approximately 1/100.000 people.1 The infection is developed by haematogenous dissemination from an extraspinal focus or direct inoculation of a causative agent into the venous plexus around odontoid processus during the intervention in the pharynx. In most cases the causative pathogen is Staphylococcus aureus. Despite the fact that(More)
