The role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in "bulky" and locally advanced cervical cancer has been of interest for the last 25 years, and in many countries, NAC has become the standard of care. In the present paper, we review our 10 years' experience with high-dose-density NAC in cervical cancer management in 141 women (CervNAC I protocol).(More)
The goal of parapharyngeal space (PPS) tumor surgery is to obtain adequate visualization to ensure complete removal with preservation of the surrounding nerves and vessels. Different surgical approaches have been described. Transoral approach is the most controversial one due to cited limited exposure, risk of tumor spillage, and possibility of(More)
Cognitive deficits in older adults attributable to Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology are featured early on by hippocampal impairment. Among these individuals, deterioration in spatial navigation, manifested by poor hippocampus-dependent allocentric navigation, may occur well before the clinical onset of dementia. Our aim was to determine whether(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomography (CT) colonography is a well established modality for the examination of symptomatic patients as well as in screening. Recent technical advances in improving image quality by iterative reconstruction contribute to the reduction of the radiation dose which is a major concern in CT imaging. PURPOSE To evaluate image quality of(More)
OBJECTIVE The endpoint of this prospective study is to evaluate response rate, survival and toxicity of high-dose density neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in bulky IB cervical cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 1998 and December 2009, 154 women were enrolled into study. Three patients were withdrawn. Of the 151 women, 119 had stage IB2 cervical(More)
The aim of the present study was to introduce a novel oblong revision cup type TC for use in revision total hip arthroplasty (THA), and to evaluate mid-term results in terms of bone tissue remodelling in the immediate area of the implant. The results of 31 patients that underwent revision THA between 2004 and 2008 are presented. The mean follow-up interval(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Nowadays, intracranial abscess is a rare complication of acute rhinosinusitis. The consequent orbital and intracranial complications of acute rhinosinusitis are rare but must be mutually excluded in complicated rhinosinusitis even when proper surgical and medical treatment tend to efficiently heal the orbital complication. METHODS We(More)
We report a case of meconium pseudocyst evaluated by prenatal MR imaging. The unusual features were its huge size, the absence of meconium peritonitis, and its development late in fetal life. The case also demonstrates a possible diagnostic pitfall since it suggests that rapid deterioration of a mechanically compensated bowel obstruction may occur,(More)
The aim of our study was to subcategorize Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) using a multidisciplinary approach. Sixty four autistic patients (mean age 9.4±5.6 years) were entered into a cluster analysis. The clustering analysis was based on MRI data. The clusters obtained did not differ significantly in the overall severity of autistic symptomatology as(More)
AIM Assessment of surgical complications and options for their therapy following replacement of oesophagus by stomach. METHODOLOGY AND MATERIAL: A retrospective study of clinical and pathological data collected from 25 children, who underwent replacement procedures of their oesophagus by stomach during the 1992-2005 period. 18 subjects were indicated for(More)
