One hundred twenty nine patients with T1 N0 M0 breast cancer were selectively treated with QUART. Mean age was 50 years. Ninety-eight patients (76%) were N- and 31 (24%) were N+. N+ cases received chemotherapy or Tamoxifen if R+. Patients evaluated are 95/129 in a 3 years average follow-up (range 2-7 years). Overall actuarial survival rate at 5 years is(More)
The difficulty in the prediction of the initiation and propagation of the failure modes in the CFRP laminates under mechanical loads, is already well known. It is related to the lack of transparency of the materials that does not allow the inner damage evaluation by simple visual inspections. On the other hand, since the growing interest in the composite(More)
Monotonic and fatigue tests were carried out in four-point bending on a glass fabric/epoxy composite, using two different stress ratios. Ultimate failure both in monotonic tests and in fatigue was precipitated by microbuckling phenomena happening at the compression side of the specimens. The experimental results were evaluated adopting a fatigue model(More)
