The authors report their experience with color Doppler US of breast disease with a new parenteral contrast agent--i.e., SH U 508 A (Levovist)--in an international multicenter experimental trial. Over a 9-month period, 17 patients with 19 solid breast lesions were examined. A baseline color Doppler study was performed on every patient, together with a second(More)
Objectives.  The aim of the study was to test the effectiveness of sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) performed by a transforamenal approach in patients with isolated chronic intractable pelvic pain. Materials.  Sevenpatients with intractable pelvic pain underwent implantation of self-anchoring leads by way of the dorsal S3 foramen in four cases and of the(More)
Since 1998, at the National Cancer Institute (Milan, Italy), a study has been carried on relative to primary chemotherapy for locally advanced breast cancers (greater than 3 cm diameter). Aim of the study is to obtain tumor reduction and thus allow a conservative treatment to be performed. The measures of the two greatest diameters of the tumor by means of(More)
Strain-specific circulating immunoglobulin G and/or M was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunofluorescence test by using Formol-treated suspensions of Gardnerella vaginalis from 28 women with overt vaginitis but only three symptom-free subjects among 43 otherwise healthy women found to be colonized by G. vaginalis. Analogous but less(More)
A series of 60 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were evaluated over a 2-year period of ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), and angiography. The angiographic studies carried out with intraarterial digital technology were compared to both US and CT of the liver. In 16 of 60 patients, we observed discordance of the findings obtained(More)
Of 836 nonpalpable breast lesions histologically assessed between 1985 and 1991 at the Milan Cancer Institute, 427 were malignant (51%). Microcalcifications were present in 283 tumors (66%), alone in 200 cases or associated with a mass (72 cases) or within a focal distortion (11 cases). Several mammographic, clinical and histological features were analyzed,(More)
