PURPOSE Cancer patients who undergo radiotherapy remain at life-long risk of radiation-induced injury to normal tissues. We conducted a randomized, controlled, double-blind crossover trial with long-term follow-up to evaluate the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen for refractory radiation proctitis. METHODS AND MATERIALS Patients with refractory radiation(More)
Minimally invasive, endoscopic repair of metopic craniosynostosis has emerged as a potentially efficacious, safe, and aesthetically acceptable alternative to open procedures. Potential advantages of an early endoscopic approach to repair metopic craniosynostosis include a reduction in blood loss and consequent decreases in transfusion volumes, decreased(More)
To review the complications in the surgical treatment of craniosynostosis in 306 consecutive transcranial procedures between June 1999 and June 2007. Surgical series consist of 306 procedures done in 268 patients: 155 scaphocephalies, 50 trigonocephalies, 28 anterior plagiocephalies, one occipital plagiocephaly, 20 non-syndromic multisutural synostosis and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to demonstrate that radical hysterectomy (RH) leads to improved survival outcomes in FIGO stage IB2-IIB cervical cancer when compared with standard brachytherapy (BCT) after identical external beam chemoradiation (EBRT-CT). PATIENTS AND METHODS EBRT-CT treatment consisted of six courses of cisplatin at 40 mg/m²(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypothalamic hamartomas are associated with precocious puberty, gelastic seizures and severe refractory epilepsy. Treatment options include surgical resection, radiofrequency and radiosurgery. CASE REPORT A 7-month-old girl presented with gelastic seizures and developmental delay related to a giant hypothalamic hamartoma. The patient was(More)
Abstract Introduction. Cavernomas rarely occur in the ventricular system. Only 10 pediatric cases out of 46 well-documented cases have been published. Case report. We report the case of an 11-year-old girl operated on for a voluminous cavernoma at the ventricular trigone which was diagnosed after absence seizures. Conclusion. Interestingly, the case we(More)
Syringomyelia is often associated with hydrocephalus, especially in Chiari malformations, but it has never been described as a complication of posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus after preterm birth. We report on a premature infant who presented this exceptional association. He was born at 29 weeks of gestational age and suffered a grade 3 intraventricular(More)
Several small, prospective, open studies suggest that leukocytapheresis might be efficient in patients with steroid-dependent ulcerative colitis (UC). To evaluate the short- and long-term effectiveness of leukocytapheresis for the management of steroid-dependent UC in clinical practice. A Web-based, nationwide database specifically designed to record the(More)
BACKGROUND Globally, cervical cancer primarily affects socially disadvantaged women. Five randomized trials were the foundation for adopting cisplatin-based chemotherapy during radiation as the standard of care for high-risk patients after primary radical hysterectomy who require adjuvant radiation and for locally advanced patients treated with definitive(More)
BACKGROUND Cisplatin-based chemoradiation is the standard of care for locally advanced cervical cancer patients; however, neoadjuvant modalities are currently being tested. Neoadjuvant studies in several tumor types have underscored the prognostic significance of pathological response for survival; however there is a paucity of studies in cervical cancer(More)
