Fourteen patients with suspected leiomyoma of the esophagus were studied by endoscopic ultrasonography, computed tomography, endoscopy and barium swallow. The results were correlated with the histology of the resected specimens: in 2 patients with a peduncolated leiomyoma originating from the second echographic layer, endoscopic resection was performed.(More)
Background: The detection of cervical lymph node metastases plays an important role in staging of patients affected by esophageal cancer to perform the best therapeutic approach. Methods: We report our experience concerning the ultrasound evaluation of the cervical area in 174 patients with esophageal cancer. Ultrasonographic evaluation of the neck can be(More)
Ultrasonography of the extremities was performed in 91 patients with unilateral or bilateral peripheral lymphedema of the arms or legs. Linear 3.5 to 10 mHz ultrasonographic linear probes were used in accordance with standardized procedure. The data demonstrated a volumetric increase of the lymphedematous limb with increased thickness of both the(More)
Nash equilibria for strategic games were characterized by Peleg and Tijs (1996) as those solutions satisfying the properties of consistency, converse consistency and one-person rationality. There are other solutions, like the e-Nash equilibria, which enjoy nice properties and appear to be interesting substitutes for Nash equilibria when their existence(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We studied the effectiveness of ultrasonography in evaluating the cervical esophagus for the presence of large masses arising from the esophageal wall and consequently, the modifications of the visceral lumen. MATERIALS AND METHODS The cervical esophagus can be evaluated by ultrasound with longitudinal and axial scans, using the left(More)
