A review was done of 120 cases of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) seen during a 71-year period. Of the 120 patients, 52 were males and 68 were females with a mean age at diagnosis of 35.3 years; 12 patients were younger than 20 years. The series included 62 (52%) patients with neurofibromatosis, 13 (11%) with postradiation sarcomas, and 19(More)
Eighty-seven valgus osteotomies of the tibia were performed in seventy-three patients for osteoarthrosis of the medial compartment of the knee; the median follow-up was ten years (range, three to fourteen years). The data were subjected to univariate and multivariate statistical analysis and to survivorship analysis. For these calculations, the end-point of(More)
We assessed oral 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) prepared with a pH-sensitive polymer coating in 87 patients with mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Patients were randomly assigned to receive 5-ASA at a dosage of either 4.8 or 1.6 g per day or placebo for six weeks. The outcome was monitored by flexible(More)
We conducted a matched case-control study to determine risk factors for the development of prosthetic joint infection. Cases were patients with prosthetic hip or knee joint infection. Controls were patients who underwent total hip or knee arthroplasty and did not develop prosthetic joint infection. A multiple logistic regression model indicated that risk(More)
Thirty-seven patients with pituitary apoplexy were analyzed with an emphasis on clinical presentation and visual outcome. Their mean age was 56.6 years, with a male to female ratio of 2:1. Presenting symptoms included headache (95%), vomiting (69%), ocular paresis (78%), and reduction in visual fields (64%) or acuities (52%). Computed tomographic scanning(More)
In this article, we review 78 cases of Cogan's syndrome--18 from our institution and 60 from the English medical literature--and describe the clinical, laboratory, radiographic, and pathologic findings associated with this disorder. Patients with Cogan's syndrome should be examined by an ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist, and internist because, in addition(More)
Two hundred and ten hips in 206 patients who had an initial total hip arthroplasty performed at the Mayo Clinic between 1969 and 1978 required revision of the arthroplasty at the Mayo Clinic for reasons other than infection. One hundred and sixty-two of the patients (166 hips) were followed both clinically and roentgenographically for two years or more. One(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial septal defects have been surgically correctable for more than 30 years. The long-term survival rates among patients treated in the early era of cardiac surgery are poorly documented, but such data are of critical importance to the future medical care, employability, and insurability of these patients. METHODS To determine the natural(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors have a protracted natural history and are associated with endocrinopathies. Resection is indicated for symptom control. Previous reports have suggested improvement in survival for patients undergoing debulking procedures. STUDY DESIGN The records of all consecutive patients undergoing resection of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS This study used a low lesion prevalence population reflective of the screening setting to estimate the sensitivity and specificity of computerized tomographic (CT) colonography for detection of colorectal polyps. METHODS This prospective, blinded study comprised 703 asymptomatic persons at higher-than-average risk for colorectal cancer(More)
