OBJECTIVE The objective of this work was to evaluate the potential of diagnostic imaging in the identification, localization, and characterization of soft-tissue inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) of limbs with correlation to differential diagnosis and therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a retrospective analysis of 324 histologically verified(More)
Carotid plaque morphology studied by ultrasound has been used to classify 3 types of bifurcation plaques, producing less than 60% stenosis on duplex scanning: Type A, the homogeneous, highly echogenic plaque; Type B, the heterogeneous (mainly echogenic, B-1 or mainly echolucent, B-2) plaque; Type C, the complex plaque with irregular surface, echogenic(More)
To evaluate the treatment efficacy of uterine adenomyosis using MRgFUS as a mini-invasive therapy. Twenty-three patients affected by symptomatic uterine adenomyosis (11 focal and 7 diffuse forms), diagnosed using MRI, were included in this study. Eighteen out of 23 were submitted to MRgFUS. All junctional zone more than 12 mm in width were considered to be(More)
The human IL-1 beta coding sequence derived from a cDNA library was inserted into two different plasmid expression vectors, pSM214 and pSM308, which promote the synthesis of recombinant products intracellularly and exocellularly, respectively. The hybrid constructs pSM261 and pSM320 were obtained. Bacillus subtilis SMS118 was transformed with these plasmids(More)
A correct evaluation of site and extension of the talocalcaneal coalition inducing biomechanical ankle alterations is very important for planning therapy. Four male patients were submitted to computed tomography (CT) and three of them were also examined by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In one patient, studied by CT only, a bilateral(More)
The authors examined 10 patients treated by intra-articular reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament with an artificial ligament in terylene (Kejo-Leeds type). Clinical evaluation was supplemented by CT scan and magnetic nuclear resonance (M.R.). The basic parameters assessed were the positioning of the tunnels, biological anchoring, presence of(More)
It is well known that high molecular weight bovine factor VIII is able to aggregate human platelets and possesses procoagulant activities. There is also growing body of evidence that the hydrolysis of bovine factor VIII abolishes its aggregating and coagulative properties. We have shown in this paper that a polypeptide fraction (molecular weight 1000-25000(More)
The authors present a comparison between the diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the articular pathologies of the knee. CT and MRI were performed in 30 patients who subsequently underwent surgery. CT and MRI results were compared on three bases: technique, definition of normal anatomy, and diagnostic(More)
Twelve patients were studied by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in order to demonstrate either loco-regional recurrence of central chondrosarcomas or degenerative evolutions of exostoses. MRI findings were compared with plain film, scintigraphy, and Computed Tomography. MRI showed loco-regional recurrences by demonstrating their site, extent, and(More)
An MRI tomograph was used to examine 396 patients with suspected disc pathology of the lumbosacral region. Forty two patients in whom disc herniation was diagnosed underwent surgery. MR proved to be a reliable and accurate method for the diagnosis of disc herniation, revealing its site and size as well as compression on the neural structures. The limits of(More)
