OBJECTIVE This study aims to analyse the effectiveness of treatment of myasthenia gravis with three different techniques of thymectomy. METHODS Results of complete remission rates after 5-year follow-up of 60 patients who underwent basic transsternal thymectomies (group A) from 1 January 1996 to 31 December 1997, 75 patients who underwent extended(More)
BACKGROUND To analyse a diagnostic yield of the transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) in restaging of the mediastinal nodes after neoadjuvant chemo- or chemo-radiotherapy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS From 1 January 2004 to 30 April 2009, 63 patients who underwent induction chemotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy for N2(More)
An algorithm of preoperative mediastinal nodal staging with endobronchial/endoesophageal ultrasonography (EBUS/EUS) and transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) combined with laparoscopy/peritoneal lavage and cytology was analyzed to establish the realistic criteria for radical multimodality treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic yield of transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) in mediastinal or hilar adenopathy in: lung cancer, staging of NSCLC, sarcoidosis and other non-malignant diseases. MATERIAL AND METHODS Transbronchial needle aspiration was performed in 347 consecutive patients - 402 biopsies in groups of lymph(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether changes in hand skin blood flow in diabetic men could be demonstrated with liquid crystal contact thermography and to assess the relative effects of autonomic neuropathy and microangiopathy on these changes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Thirty-four diabetic and 12 age-matched nondiabetic men comprised the study. The diabetic(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study is to analyze diagnostic yield of the new surgical technique--the Transcervical Extended Mediastinal Lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) in preoperative staging of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Operative technique included 5-8 cm collar incision in the neck, elevation of the sternal manubrium with a special(More)
Chronic liver disease is frequently associated with a hyperdynamic circulation, with warm hands and capillary pulsations. In our experience, however, a significant number of patients with alcoholic liver disease complain of cold hands. In this study, we have investigated the presence of the subjective feeling of hand temperature in 114 patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic yield of ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) in mediastinal or hilar adenopathy in: 1) staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (97); 2) other malignant neoplasms including: small cell lung cancer (SCLC), metastatic neoplasms and Hodgkin's disease (16); 3) NSCLC(More)
The aim of the study was to review the clinical characteristics of operated patients with respect to pulmonary sequestration and analyze diagnostic and therapeutic problems connected with this anomaly. Material and methods. We performed a retrospective analysis of 23 patients operated on because of pulmonary sequestration between 1963 and 2004 in the(More)
