Silver-binding nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs) have been counted in sections of routinely processed paraffin embedded material. The AgNOR score has been correlated with proliferative activity of various neoplasms. An increase in the AgNOR score can be related to cellular growth fractions or DNA-ploidy. We have examined 301 invasive ductal breast(More)
Forty-one postmenopausal patients with abnormal uterine bleeding were scheduled for endometrial sampling in a week from the measurement of endometrial thickness by transvaginal ultrasonography. If the cut-off limit was 5 mm, the endometrial thickness was correlated with the presence of pathologic endometrium with a sensitivity of 87.5%, a specificity of(More)
INTRODUCTION Elderly patients demonstrate more difficulty in telephone communication than in direct conversation. This deterioration in comprehension is due most likely to the narrowing of frequency range of transmission (300-3,400 Hz) and the lack of specific maps in the sound processor to accommodate the reduced information. AIMS The goal of this study(More)
The results regarding changes of choroidal thickness following intravitreal ranibizumab injections in the literature are controversial. Vascular endothelial growth factor A is implicated in pathogenesis of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The suspected unchanged choroidal layer thickness after intravitreal injections of ranibizumab(More)
The GGTP is an enzyme localized, in the liver cell, inside microsome. At beginning the use of the GGTP was introduced for the diagnosis of chronic hepatitis; after it was noted as this was steady increased in the cholestasis and in the alcoholism. We have, hence, wanted to experiment if the changing of the level of the GGTP allowed to us a diagnosis of(More)
OBJECTIVE The relationship between plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and left ventricular mass in essential hypertension was assessed. PATIENTS AND METHODS Immunoreactive ANP in 10 normal subjects and 20 untreated patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension was compared with echocardiographic(More)
The authors, following recent observation of two cases of renovascular hypertension, one related to single right renal artery stenosis and the other to fibromuscular dysplasia of the left renal artery, examine the value of the Captopril-Test and treatment with Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA), in the diagnosis and therapy of this form of(More)
