OBJECTIVE Spontaneous pneumomediastinum is characterized by the presence of interstitial air in the mediastinum without any apparent precipitating factor. The purpose of this study is to review and discuss our experience with this condition. METHODS A descriptive, retrospective study of 41 cases--34 men (83%) and 7 women (17%)--treated at our hospital for(More)
PURPOSE The microRNA-34b/c (miR-34b/c) is considered a tumor suppressor in different tumor types and a transcriptional target of TP53. The main objectives of this study were to investigate the clinical implications of miR-34b/c methylation in patients with early-stage lung adenocarcinoma and to determine the functional role of miR-34b/c re-expression in(More)
Four mature nonlactating Holstein heifers fitted with ruminal and duodenal cannulae were used to investigate in vivo effects of niacin and whole cottonseed. Each heifer was assigned randomly to a treatment in a 2 X 2 factorial arrangement of treatment sequences within a 4 X 4 Latin square design. Heifers were fed isonitrogenous complete mixed rations(More)
OBJECTIVE Accurate preoperative staging is essential to provide the best treatment for lung cancer. The objective of the present study was to determine agreement between preoperative and surgical-pathological staging and to analyse the impact of any disparity on treatment. METHODS This is a descriptive study of a series of 176 lung cancer cases treated by(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate immunogenicity and tolerability of a live attenuated zoster vaccine in varicella-zoster virus (VZV) seronegative or low-seropositive adults > or = 30 years of age. STUDY DESIGN Double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter study. Subjects were enrolled in two stages by prescreened serostatus. Subjects with a low VZV(More)
Primary hyperhidrosis-PH is an excessive sweating without known etiology. The PH is more frequent in women and in palms, soles and axillae. Medical treatment is not effective. The objective of the surgery is to remove or to disconnect sympathetic ganglia T2 (craniofacial PH or facial blushing), T3 (palmar PH) and T3-T4 (axillary PH). The surgical techniques(More)
OBJECTIVE Endoscopic bilateral thoracic sympathicolysis (EBTS) is an effective and minimally invasive procedure used for patients with primary hyperhidrosis. The purpose of this study was to examine anxiety levels using standardized psychometric tools in hyperhidrosis patients before and after EBTS. METHODS A total of 106 patients diagnosed with(More)
Bilateral upper thoracic sympathectomy or sympathicolysis, currently the standard treatment for palmar or axillary hyperhidrosis, is regarded as a safe procedure. This study evaluates the quantitative and qualitative incidence of intraoperative and postoperative complications resulting from bilateral thoracic sympathicolysis. From 1996 to 2004, 458(More)
The cutaneous influence areas of the different sympathetic ganglia have not been fully established to date. The aim of this study was to define the cutaneous influence area of sympathetic ganglia T2–T3. A total of 210 patients with primary hyperhidrosis (PH) underwent 420 thoracoscopic sympathicolysis procedures of ganglia T2–T3 in a prospective study. All(More)
In this study, patients treated by thoracoscopic sympathicolysis for palmar hyperhidrosis were evaluated to determine the number and response of sweat glands to intradermal acetylcholine stimulus. A total of 30 patients were included in the study. Group A consisted of 10 patients with palmar hyperhidrosis who underwent thoracoscopic sympathicolysis in(More)
