OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to determine the safety, efficacy, and performance of polyurethane-covered Wallstents in the treatment of malignant biliary obstruction. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This pilot study included 30 patients with malignant biliary obstruction. Palliative decompression of the obstructed bile duct was attempted with a(More)
The experiences of the treatment of bladder carcinoma indicated the direction in which the dose optimization program of intraabdominal tumours can be carried out. Small intraabdominal target volumes seem to tolerate doses from 31 to 33 Gy applied in 20 fractions. The best results with local tumour control and low complication rates have so far been reached(More)
Negative pi-meson (pion) therapy employing dynamic scanning with a focused spot of convergent beams has been in use since 1981 at SIN. Three-dimensional conformation of the treatment volume to the target volume can thus be achieved. Following previously reported Phase I and Ib clinical trials, a Phase II trial was initiated with the goal of treating primary(More)
Radiation therapy with negative pi-mesons (pions) was administered to 36 patients with bladder cancer. According to a Phase I/II study, doses varied from 3000 to 3600 pion rad. Although only two complete responses were achieved among 8 evaluable patients who had predominantly papillary bladder tumors, more promising results were obtained in 22 evaluable(More)
Gastric pseudolymphoma is an uncommon benign lesion which poses a difficult problem in diagnosis and management. Lymphoid hyperplasia of the stomach, however, may occasionally precede true gastric lymphoma. Endoscopic, radiologic and pathological findings are not generally helpful in establishing the diagnosis preoperatively. Benign gastric lymphoid(More)
A 60-year-old man was hospitalized because of a sudden onset of severe pain in the epigastrium and haematemesis. Acute pancreatitis was diagnosed on the basis of an increased serum amylase concentration (642 U/l). Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography demonstrated a necrotic zone with central liquefaction in the tail of the pancreas adjoining the(More)
