We report a case of adenomyoma of endocervical type arising in a 44-year-old female. Grossly, a well-circumscribed tumor protruding from the right side of the uterine cervix was seen which was assumed to be an ovarian tumor by imaging studies carried out preoperatively. The tumor was composed of a mixture of proliferating glands of endocervical type and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of extraperitoneal laparoscopic para-aortic and common iliac lymphadenectomy for cervical and endometrial carcinoma. METHODS Seventy-six patients underwent extraperitoneal laparoscopic para-aortic and common iliac lymphadenectomy between February 1999 and September 2005. The lymph nodes(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the Calvert formula is the standard method to calculate the dose of carboplatin, there is no consensus how to determine the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) without using [51Cr]-ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (51Cr-EDTA). Creatinine clearance (Ccr), calculated using the Cockroft-Gault, Jelliffe, Modified-Jelliffe or Wright formulae, has(More)
The purpose of the study was to determine whether paclitaxel inhibits the expression of heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in two gynecologic cancer cell lines compared with other antineoplastic agents having different cytotoxic mechanisms. BG-1 ovarian cancer cells and HeLa uterine cancer cells were treated with a tubulin depolymerization inhibitor(More)
5072 Background: The Jelliffe formula (JF) does not include body surface area (BSA) or body weight to adjust the body size. We demonstrated that estimates of carboplatin clearance calculated by the JF tend to have greater positive bias compared to other formulae. The JF has been used to estimate carboplatin clearance in Gynecologin Oncology Group studies.(More)
The development of endoscopic equipment and surgical skills make more complicated procedures possible laparoscopically. The application of these techniques to oncologic surgery, which used to be basically the most invasive procedure, has become an important issue when considering patient well-being. For cervical and endometrial cancer we can perform a(More)
OBJECTIVE Currently, no long-term follow-up data are available on intraperitoneal (IP) carboplatin-based chemotherapy for ovarian carcinoma. In this study we evaluated retrospectively the survival and recurrence of a retrospective cohort of patients with epithelial ovarian cancer treated with first-line IP carboplatin-based therapy. METHODS Records were(More)
Clear cell carcinoma of the ovary is believed to be chemoresistant; therefore, choosing anticancer agents is often difficult. In this report we present a case of ovarian clear cell carcinoma that showed a significant response to a combination chemotherapy with paclitaxel and carboplatin. The patient is a 51-year-old Japanese female with a history of Gn-RH(More)
