We review 1696 patients with blunt chest trauma. Road traffic accidents were the main cause of injury followed by domestic falls and labour accidents. Outdoor falls and sport accidents accounted for a small number of injuries. For clinical evaluation, Stoddart's score was used. The injuries were considered as minor in 710 patients, intermediate in 740 and(More)
Since 1970 we have stabilized the ribs to correct paradoxical movement of the chest wall in chest injuries, using an original technique, in order to avoid as far as possible the need for long-term chest wall stabilization by intermittent positive pressure respiration (IPPR). The technical details of surgical stabilization are described, and the different(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the causes of death in patients treated surgically for nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in stage IA and to evaluate the impact on survival of not performing systematic lymph node dissection and of the number of nodes resected. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study sample consisted of 156 patients operated on for NSCLC and classified in(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work is to estimate the prognostic value of a set of clinical-pathological factors in patients resected for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and classified as stage IB, in order to create a prognostic model for establishing risk groups, and to validate that model. METHODS Among 637 patients resected and classified as stage IB,(More)
Alterations in the expression of type 1 blood group-related antigens (Lewis a and b) were examined immunohistochemically in 371 consecutives gastric biopsy and 80 surgical specimens from patients of gastric carcinoma. The ABH and Lewis phenotype and secretor status of the patients were correlated with histologic findings. An anomalous expression of Lewis a(More)
Ten monoclonal antibodies and one lectin were used to study the localization and distribution of Blood Group ABH, type 1 chain (Lewis a, Lewis b) and type 2 chain (H-2, Y) antigens in 22 cases of normal uterine cervix, with known ABO and Lewis phenotype and secretor status. The results showed that ABH isoantigen expression is clearly related to the secretor(More)
