OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting cervical involvement by endometrial cancer. METHODS A retrospective accuracy study of 135 consecutive women who underwent preoperative MRI and surgery for endometrial cancer at a single gynaecological cancer centre between 1st(More)
This study evaluated the clinical and histopathological responses of vulval lichen sclerosus (LS) and squamous hyperplasia (SH) to photodynamic therapy (PDT). A novel bioadhesive patch containing aminolevulinic acid (ALA) at a dose of (38 mg/cm(2)) was used to treat 10 patients before irradiation with light of 630 nm. Clinical, histopathological and(More)
BACKGROUND The work in this study appraised photodynamic treatment (PDT) as a treatment method for vulval intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN) using a novel bioadhesive patch to deliver aminolevulinic acid. An analysis of changes in expression of apoptotic and cell cycle proteins (p53, p21, Mdm2, Blc-2, Bax, Ki-67) in response to PDT was evaluated. METHODS PDT(More)
Most uterine sarcomas fall into the category of leiomyosarcoma, endometrial stromal sarcoma, or undifferentiated sarcoma. Pure rhabdomyosarcomas are extremely rare, although a rhabdomyosarcomatous element may be present as a component of an adenosarcoma or carcinosarcoma (malignant mixed müllerian tumor). This report describes two uterine rhabdomyosarcomas(More)
AIMS Traditionally, advanced stage ovarian carcinoma is treated by debulking surgery followed by chemotherapy. However, in some circumstances preoperative chemotherapy may be given before optimal surgical debulking. This study aims to describe the morphological features found in ovarian carcinoma after chemotherapy because these have not been detailed(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the applicability of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the management of vulvodynia whereby a novel, patch-type system, loaded with 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), was used to administer PDT to vulvar regions displaying the characteristics of vulvodynia. STUDY DESIGN Eleven patients underwent PDT using a bioadhesive patch to deliver ALA over(More)
A trial was undertaken at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford to establish if surgical staples were a viable alternative to traditional sutures in wound closure. The trial involved a sample of trained nursing staff using staples in the closure of simple skin lacerations presented at the Accident and Emergency (A & E) department. A questionnaire collected(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare a new surgical approach, laparoscopically assisted radical vaginal hysterectomy (LARVH) with open radical hysterectomy in women with cervical cancer. Can selected women benefit from the minimally invasive approach without compromising safety (recurrence rate) and morbidity (complications)? DESIGN Retrospective case control study. (More)
