We conducted a randomized clinical trial to determine whether the addition of pelvic systematic lymphadenectomy to standard hysterectomy with bilateral(More)
BACKGROUND Although they cover superficial areas, preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the vulva are often diagnosed late. The reasons for this delay is the low incidence of this invasive neoplasm, the advanced age of patients, the non-specific symptoms mainly taking the form of itch, burning, dyspareunia and blood loss, which are also compatible with a(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe our experience with the sentinel lymph node biopsy in cervical cancer patients, using a laparotomic approach and blue dye technique. METHODS Between January 2003 and January 2005, patients with histologically proven FIGO stage IA2 to IIA carcinoma of the uterine cervix were submitted to SLN procedure if they were scheduled to have(More)
Angiogenesis and other prognostic factors have been studied among 32 recurrences and 28 deaths of 420 patients with cervical carcinoma operated in the 1st Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology of Catania University. Prognostic factors were studied in comparison with a group of patients still alive and NED was followed for more than 60 months independently(More)
In this paper, a very simple model of notching effect is reported. From an engineering point of view, the notching effect is an undercut between bottom of metal strip and stop layer (generally oxide) which can be observed in a Cl/sub 2/-BCl/sub 3/ metal etch when the geometry is shrunk. Starting from (Horwitz, 1993), a very detailed relation between(More)
A semistructured questionnaire was used as the basis for an examination of qualitative and quantitative changes in orgasm among 200 pregnant women brought to term. The frequency of orgasm gradually diminished over the 9 months in most women, only occasionally increasing. A total of 149 women (79.5%) said they had felt no pain during orgasm, 20.5% reported(More)
The AA. investigated the frequency of antibodies against Toxoplasma gondii in 426 women with repeated abortions, perinatal mortality and malformed newborns. They showed on the whole a low incidence even if they demonstrated a high incidence (77.7%) of antibodies in women with malformed newborns. The meaning of the observations are briefly discussed.
