We present the structure of an ontology for Information Security (IS) and discuss a paradigm whereby it can be used to extract knowledge from natural language texts such as IS standards, security policies and security control descriptions. Besides providing a vocabulary for the IS domain, the proposed ontology stores logical forms corresponding to(More)
Lymphadenectomy is important in the surgical treatment of apparent early epithelial ovarian cancers (eEOC); however, its extent is not well defined. We evaluated the role of systematic lymphadenectomy, the risk factors related with lymph node metastases, the implications, and the morbidity of comprehensive surgical staging. We prospectively recruited 124(More)
OBJECTIVE We report a case of cervical rhabdomyosarcoma in an adult and review of literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 44-year-old, premenopausal, white woman, complained of vaginal bleeding for 2 months. The gynecological examination showed a cervical polyp protruding from the vagina. The polyp was partially removed by polypectomy. Pathological(More)
The purpose of this observational study was to evaluate disease-free survival, overall survival, local recurrence rate, and morbidities in patients submitted to class III nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy (NSRH) compared with standard radical hysterectomy (RH) in cervical cancer (CC). This was a comparative study in the context of multimodal therapies. We(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To report the detection rate (DR) of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in endometrial cancer (EC) patients after hysteroscopic injection of indocyanine green (ICG) and laparoscopic near-infrared (L-NIR) fluorescence mapping. DESIGN Prospectively collected data (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING Gynecologic oncology referral(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the role of omental bursa (OB), surface of the pancreas, lesser omentum, caudate lobe, celiac nodes (CNs), portal nodes and triad nodes spread in advanced ovarian cancer (AOC). We investigated if the exploration and cleaning up of these areas can lead to a more complete cytoreduction and to a more realistic assessment of residual(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze local recurrence rate (LRR), morbidities and oncologic outcome of class III nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS 170 consecutive class III NSRH cases were performed. Nineteen patients were addressed directly to surgery whilst neoadjuvant chemotherapy was administered in 151 patients. The majority of patients had(More)
Chromosome 10p terminal deletions have been associated with a DiGeorge like phenotype. Haploinsufficiency of the region 10p14-pter, results in hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, renal anomaly, that is the triad that features the HDR syndrome. Van Esch (2000) identified in a HDR patient, within a 200 kb critical region, the GATA3 gene, a(More)
AIMS Inflammation-based scores such as neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and Onodera nutritional index (ONI) have been identified as new prognosticators in several tumors. We conducted a prognostic analysis of these markers and performed a risk stratification of PMP patients submitted to cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal(More)
