The aim of this study is to evaluate a new tumour marker, HE4, in comparison with CA 125 and the Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA) in healthy women and in patients with benign and malignant gynaecological diseases. CA 125 and HE4 serum levels were determined in 66 healthy women, 285 patients with benign gynaecological diseases (68 endometriosis,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) detection and viral load prior to treatment and status of cone margins can predict residual/recurrent disease as well as the ability of current diagnostic tools to identify residual/recurrent disease during follow-up of high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) treated by(More)
BACKGROUND Human epididymis protein 4 (HE4), a precursor of human epididymis protein, has been proposed as a tumor marker for ovarian cancer. We evaluated HE4 in comparison with cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) in healthy individuals and in patients with benign and malignant diseases. METHODS CA 125 and HE4 serum concentrations were determined in 101 healthy(More)
To determine the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting myometrial invasion and cervical involvement in endometrial cancer. Seventy two consecutive patients with endometrial carcinoma underwent preoperative MRI. We compared the MRI results with the final histopathological findings. We classify myometrial invasion as <50 or ≥50%(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the value of myometrial invasion by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), histologic typing and grading by endometrial biopsy, and the intraoperative evaluation of both parameters by frozen section in the evaluation of endometrial cancer. The preoperative and intraoperative records of 180 patients with endometrial(More)
UNLABELLED C-erbB-2, CEA and CA 15.3 serial serum determinations were performed in 250 patients (follow-up: 1-4 years, mean 2.5 years) with primary breast cancer and no evidence of residual disease (NED) after radical treatment (radical mastectomy or simple mastectomy and radiotherapy). Ninety-five patients developed metastases during follow-up. RESULTS(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to compare the feasibility, safety, and survival outcomes of Coelio-Schauta (CS) procedure versus open Wertheim-Meigs (WM) as primary surgical treatment of early-stage cervical cancer. METHODS Observational study on the consecutive cases of cervical cancer undergoing CS during the last 11 years at our institution was(More)
Despite the widespread use of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in breast cancer patients, some controversy exists about the correct management of extra-axillary nodes, especially those located in the internal mammary chain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of SLNs in this region, calculate the lymphoscintigraphic and surgical detection(More)
To evaluate the utility of CEA and CA 15.3 for early diagnosis of recurrence, serial serum determinations of both antigens were performed in 1023 patients (follow-up: 1–10 years, mean 6.2 years) with primary breast cancer (CA 15.3 in 533 cases) and no evidence of residual disease (NED) after radical treatment (radical mastectomy or simple mastectomy and(More)
The diagnostic value of a new tumor marker, c-erbB-2, was studied in the sera of 50 healthy subjects, 58 patients with benign breast diseases, and 413 patients with breast cancer (186 locoregional, 185 with advanced disease, and 42 with no evidence of disease). Using 15 U/ml as the cut-off, no healthy subjects or patients with benign diseases and only 2.4%(More)
