Since without prospective randomized studies it is not possible to have a clear attitude towards the importance of intracranial pressure monitoring, this study was aimed at examining the prognostic effect of the intracranial pressure monitoring and intracranial pressure oriented therapy in severe brain trauma patients, and at defining optimal intracranial(More)
The differentiated surgical approach to hydatid lung cysts and the operative techniques used in 343 children treated in the Department of Pediatric Surgery over 24 years (1975-1998) are presented. The left lung is involved in 143 children (41.7%), the right--in 155 (45.2%), whereas in 45 cases (13.1%) it is a matter of bilateral location. Infectious(More)

Between 1980 and 1994, 244 children (aged 1-15 years) with pulmonary hydatid disease underwent surgery at the Emergency Medical Institute 'N. I. Pirogov', Sofia, Bulgaria. The number of cases/year generally increased with time. Initial diagnosis, based on X-rays, ultrasonography and computed tomography, was confirmed by immunology. Cysts were either found(More)
In the last twenty years, endorectalultrasound (ERUS) has become the primary method for locoregional staging of rectal cancer. ERUS is the most accurate modality for assessing local depth of invasion of rectal carcinoma into the rectal wall layers (T stage). Lower accuracy for T2 tumors is commonly reported, which could lead to sonographic overstaging of T3(More)
Pulmonary blastoma is a rare malignant tumor of the lungs, with a frequency of 0.25-0.5% of all primary malignant lung tumors. We present a case of 42-year old man with biphasic pulmonary blastoma The authors discussed the clinical features, laboratory findings, radiologic and CT features, the operative treatment and the pathologic diagnosis.
An analysis of data concerning 37 patients with the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES) has been made, 36 of them were operated upon. Gastrinoma was found in 21 patients. Diagnosis of ZES was made in two steps: the first one is fulfilled in general medical institutions, the second one-in specialized clinics. The diagnosis of ZES must be either confirmed or(More)
In 29 patients with clinical diagnosis of rheumatic valvular disease the quantitative values of active rosettes and the specific sensitization to human heart myosin were examined. The specific sensitization to human heart myosin was examined by two methods concurrently: method of inhibiting leucocyte migration in agarose and method for direct specific(More)
The aim of the investigation is to study the influence of human myocardium myosin on the quantitative values of T-lymphocytes examined as active rosettes [correction of rosellae] in patients with ischemic heart disease. The study included 99 patients with ischemic heart disease, 49 of them with myocardial infarction and 50--with stenocardia. The controls(More)
