OBJECTIVE To analyze the results of hysteroscopic myomectomy in our center and to compare the results to those published in the literature. METHODS We performed a retrospective study of the clinical histories of patients who had undergone hysteroscopic myomectomy with a resectoscope between January 1992 and December 1999. Procedures were performed at a(More)
The life history of the whale shark (Rhincodon typus), including its reproductive ecology, still remains largely unknown. Here, we present results from the first whale shark population study around Darwin Island, Galapagos Marine Reserve. Following a diversified approach we characterized seasonal occurrence, population structure and size, and described(More)
This article develops a treatment of phonologically motivated gaps in paradigms within Optimal Paradigms theory (McCarthy 2005). The gaps are instances of absolute ungrammaticality, i.e. situations in which there is no output for a given input. In the approach developed here, gaps arise when phonological markedness constraints outrank constraints requiring(More)
UNLABELLED Endometriosis is a complex disease with unclear pathogenesis, defined as the presence of endometrial tissue (glands and stroma) outside its usual location in the uterine cavity. Ureteral involvement is rare, with an estimated frequency of 10-14% in cases of deep endometriosis with nodules of 3 cm or larger. An important complication of ureteral(More)
The box-counting algorithm is one of the most widely used methods for calculating the fractal dimension (FD). The FD has many image analysis applications in the biomedical field, where it has been used extensively to characterize a wide range of medical signals. However, computing the FD for large images, especially in 3D, is a time consuming process. In(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the results of our conservative management of retained trophoblastic tissue and placental polyp with diagnostic ambulatory hysteroscopy and to describe our experience and guidelines. STUDY DESIGN Descriptive retrospective study. Eighty-four women with suspected retained trophoblastic tissue after pregnancy underwent hysteroscopic(More)
BACKGROUND Intracoronary physiology techniques have been validated extensively for the assessment of epicardial stenoses but not for the lone study of coronary microcirculation. We performed a comparison between 4 intracoronary physiological indices with the actual structural microcirculatory changes documented in transplanted hearts. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
MAIN OBJECTIVE Patients with locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC) are usually treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Extended-field chemoradiotherapy is indicated in cases of paraaortic nodal spread. Nowadays, 18-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is considered to be the most accurate image method of detection of node or(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To describe the evolutive endometrial hysteroscopic patterns in patients undergoing long-term tamoxifen treatment. DESIGN Prospective analysis. Analysis of variance test with post hoc Bonferroni test and homogeneity test of percentages were used for hypothesis contrast between the groups. DESIGN CLASSIFICATION Canadian task force II-2.(More)
