A total of 24 patients with renal cell carcinoma involving the inferior vena cava underwent thoracoabdominal radical nephrectomy with removal of tumor thrombus by an open or closed technique. The tumor extended in the inferior vena cava to the level of the renal or lower hepatic veins in 18 patients and it reached the level of the diaphragm or right atrium(More)
We describe a procedure for intraoperative treatment planning for seed implantation. One hundred seven treatment plans have been analyzed at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and affiliated hospitals. The average time for the intraoperative procedure was 1. 74 hours. No significant difference in dose coverage to the prostate or normal tissues was(More)
Myoblast cell cultures have been widely employed in conventional (1g) studies of biological processes because characteristics of intact muscle can be readily observed in these cultured cells. We decided to investigate the effects of spaceflight on muscle by utilizing a well characterized myoblast cell line (L8 rat myoblasts) as cultured in the recently(More)
Renal hemangiomas are rare lesions that demonstrate a spectrum of clinical, radiographic, and pathologic presentation. Angiographic differentiation from renal cell carcinoma is usually possible, and in such cases conservative management should be attempted. Hemangiomas are in some ways similar to arteriovenous malformations, but lack the rapid and(More)
Adrenal cysts are rare clinical and pathologic entities. The vast majority are minute in size, unilateral, and found in females at autopsy. They come to the physician's attention when they produce symptoms or are identified on x-ray studies. When symptomatic, they generally produce lumbar discomfort and gastrointestinal symptoms, and occasionally are(More)
The main purpose of this work was to isolate the components in acetone soluble lipids of lepromas of the nine-banded armadillo by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and then to examine the mass spectrometric characteristics of the two peaks (molecular weights 2000 and 1600) found by HPLC. The armadillo had been inoculated with Mycobacterium(More)
