OBJECTIVE Survival improvement of children, adolescents and young women with cancer has led to consider with more cautiousness the long time iatrogenic side effects of treatments. Among those, premature ovarian failure has been described even for children. The aim of the study was to evaluate the indications and the feasibility of ovarian tissue(More)
The results of epicardial pacing in infants with isolated congenital complete atrioventricular block (CAVB) are reported. Thirty-four patients, aged 1 day to 20 months (22 patients < 1 month), were paced between 1988 and 1998. Thirty had bradycardia < 50 beats/min with symptoms in 12 patients, and 4 patients were paced because of associated ventricular(More)
AIM To evaluate the mechanical behaviour of structurally compromised root filled bovine roots after restoration with accessory glass fibre posts. METHODOLOGY Fifty roots of bovine teeth received conventional post preparations with a cervical diameter of 3.5 mm. The roots were assigned to five groups (n = 10): group MP - cast metal post, group GP - glass(More)
Girls who undergo treatment for cancer are at risk of ovarian hormonal dysfunction and subfertility due to the detrimental effects of some chemotherapeutic agents and/or radiotherapy on the gonads. Consequently, fertility-preserving techniques shouldbe discussed before starting gonadotoxic therapy. Ovarian tissue cryopreservation is currently the only(More)
BACKGROUND Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor (DSRCT) is a rare disease affecting predominantly children and young adults and for which the benefit of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) after complete cytoreductive surgery (CCRS) remains unknown. METHODS To identify patients with DSRCT without extraperitoneal metastases (EPM) who underwent(More)
Longer survival after anticancer treatment has lead to concern about the long-term adverse effects. Altered fertility is of particular importance. Before sterilizing treatment, three non-exclusive methods can be proposed to preserve female fertility: in vitro fertilization followed by cryopreservation of embryos, cryopreservation of mature ovocytes,(More)
