OBJECTIVE To describe our results with botulinum toxin type A injection for headache in carefully selected patients, and to present the rationale behind this therapy. SETTING Tertiary referral centre. PATIENTS AND METHODS This article describes a case series of 10 consecutive patients with frontally localised headache, whose pain worsened when pressure(More)
The AMORE protocol is a local treatment regimen for head and neck rhabdomyosarcomas (HNRMS), consisting of Ablative surgery, Moulage technique brachytherapy and surgical Reconstruction. The aim of AMORE is to intensify local treatment for children with HNRMS and to avoid external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and its long-term sequelae. All children with(More)
PURPOSE A multidisciplinary approach, consisting of consecutive Ablative Surgery, MOld technique with afterloading brachytherapy and immediate surgical REconstruction (AMORE) applied after chemotherapy, was designed for children with rhabdomyosarcoma in the head-and-neck region. Analysis of the first 42 patients was performed. METHODS AND MATERIALS After(More)
BACKGROUND The AMORE protocol is a local treatment for patients with nonorbital pediatric head and neck rhabdomyosarcoma (HNRMS). The objectives of this study were: (1) to assess the adequacy of the concept, and (2) to identify factors associated with relapse. METHODS We performed a retrospective multidisciplinary review of 22 children primarily treated(More)
AIM To investigate the feasibility and outcome of the AMORE protocol as salvage treatment in paediatric head and neck rhabdomyosarcoma (HNRMS). METHODS The AMORE protocol is a local treatment regimen, consisting of Ablative surgery, Moulage technique brachytherapy and surgical Reconstruction, scheduled in 1 week. Patients with recurrent or residual(More)
OBJECT Patients treated for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) often report a loss of smell. To discriminate between the effects of aneurysmal rupture and treatment, the authors assessed the occurrence of anosmia after clipping and coiling of unruptured aneurysms as well as after the coiling of ruptured aneurysms. METHODS The authors interviewed(More)
OBJECTIVE Subperiosteal orbital abscesses (SPOA) are a complication of sinusitis. Traditional treatment of SPOA is surgical. Recently, a number of studies report successful medical treatment. To our knowledge, it is unclear which patients can benefit from medical management alone. Therefore, we questioned (1) what is the outcome of medical versus surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical excision has historically been the treatment of choice for non-tuberculous mycobacterial cervicofacial lymphadenitis. Emerging data suggests antibiotic treatment alone could be an attractive alternative to surgery. We questioned (1) what treatment offers best cure rates in children with this condition and (2) the evidence for antibiotic(More)
In two field experiments sown in 1982 to test the effect of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizas (VAM) on growth and phosphorus nutrition of (i) spring wheat and spring barley, (ii) winter wheat and winter barley, we measured the concentrations of the major cation (K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and Na+) and anions (Cl−, SO4 2−, H2PO4 − and NO3 −) in shoot tissue. In all cases(More)
For advanced stage residual or recurrent paediatric soft tissue sarcomas in the head and neck area, the AMORE protocol was developed in our hospital. It consists of Ablative surgery, afterloading brachytherapy, using a MOulage technique and REconstructive surgery in 1 week. The reconstructive surgical component of this treatment regimen was reviewed.(More)
