BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) as an early imaging indicator of tumor histologic response to preoperative chemotherapy and as a possible prognostic factor for event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival in pediatric patients with newly diagnosed,(More)
BACKGROUND Telangiectatic osteosarcoma (TOS) is a rare subtype of osteosarcoma (OS). The authors reviewed their experience with TOS to characterize its histologic, radiologic, and clinical features. METHODS The authors reviewed records, pathology material, and imaging studies from all patients with TOS who were treated between 1978 and 2005 and compared(More)
BACKGROUND The National Chilean Pediatric Oncology Group, PINDA, reports the first prospective, nonrandomized trial for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), using a modified version of the Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster protocol (ALL BFM 86). The aim of this study was to classify immunophenotypes, to decrease cranial irradiation, and to assess whether this(More)
The cerebellum has been implicated in higher-order behavior. Blood flow studies (SPECT) have shown that cerebral diaschisis can appear after cerebellar lesions and this phenomenon could serve as a basis for a potential neuropsychological derangement after cerebellar insults. Our objectives in this study were to delineate the neuropsychological profile after(More)
To assess nutritional potential, pod yield, and Ca concentration of pods and foliage were determined for a snap bean population, which included sixty S 1 families plus four commercial varieties. The experimental design was an 8 × 8 double lattice, repeated at two locations (Arlington and Hancock, Wis.). Snap beans were planted in June 1993 and machine(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperbaric 5% lidocaine has been associated with transient neurologic symptoms (TNSs) after spinal anesthesia. A prospective, masked, randomized study was conducted to compare the incidence of TNSs after spinal anesthesia with hyperbaric 5% lidocaine or 5% prilocaine to assess the utility of prilocaine as an alternative to lidocaine in patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Serological biomarkers could reflect asymptomatic infrarenal aortic aneurysm (AAA) activity and guide patient management. REPORT Serum concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP), alpha 1-antitrypsin and lipoprotein(a) were measured in blood samples from 35 AAA patients and 35 controls and correlated with the aortic diameter and AAA growth in(More)
