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)
OBJECTIVE To review the complications in the surgical treatment of craniosynostosis in 306 consecutive transcranial procedures between June 1999 and June 2007. PATIENTS AND METHODS Surgical series consist of 306 procedures done in 268 patients: 155 scaphocephalies, 50 trigonocephalies, 28 anterior plagiocephalies, one occipital plagiocephaly, 20(More)
Metopic synostosis is thought to have an incidence of about 1 in 15,000 births. Traditionally, this makes it the third most frequent single-suture craniosynostosis, after scaphocephaly (1 in 4200-8500) and plagiocephaly (1 in 11,000). Our units have, independently from each other, noted a marked increase in the number of metopic synostosis over the recent(More)
INTRODUCTION The development of multidisciplinar units for Craniofacial Surgery has led to better postoperative results and a considerable decrease in morbidity in the treatment of complex craniofacial patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standard correction of craniosynostosis involves calvarial remodeling, often considerable blood losses that need to be(More)
Premature closure of metopic suture is a relatively uncommon form of craniosyostosis with an estimated incidence of 0,3 per 1000 live births, comprising about 7% of surgical craniosynostosis referred to craniofacial centers. A broad phenotypical spectrum spreads from minor metopic ridges to severe trigonocephaly with pterional indentation supraorbital bar(More)
The development of multidisciplinar Units for Craneofacial Surgery has led to a considerable decrease in morbidity even in the cases of more complex craniofacial syndromes. The use of minimally invasive techniques for the correction of some of these malformations allows the surgeon to minimize the incidence of complications by means of a decrease in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Complex CSF diseases may be underdiagnosed or poorly understood on conventional CT or MR imaging. Although intrathecal CT cisternography with water-soluble iodinated contrast medium has been used, very few studies have dealt with the intrathecal use of gadopentate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA), though it appears superior to CT. We report our(More)
Arachnoid cysts account for only 1% of all intracranial space-occupying lesions. In adults suprasellar cysts represent 9% of all the arachnoid cysts while in pediatric population this percentage reaches 15%. In spite of being a problem relatively common in daily neurosurgical practice there are still a number of questions to be solved concerning(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)
OBJECTIVE To review the results and complications of the surgical treatment of craniosynostosis in 283 consecutive patients treated between 1999 and 2007. PATIENTS AND METHODS Our series consisted of 330 procedures performed in 283 patients diagnosed with scaphocephaly (n=155), trigonocephaly (n=50), anterior plagiocephaly (n=28), occipital plagiocephaly(More)
