During the surgical procedure of nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) a frozen section evaluation of the base of the nipple and areola complex is often carried out to ascertain absence of(More)
Sixteen diabetic males, 32-60 years old (mean 48.7 ± 8.9 years), without clinical or electrocardiographic evidence of heart disease and 12 normal volunteers, mean age 48.9 ± 8.8 years, participated in maximal exercise testing combined with thallium-201 myocardial scintigraphy. A motorized treadmill was used with the Bruce protocol. A standard 12-lead ECG(More)
