BACKGROUND The surgical indications for patients with pancreatic head cancer (PHC) with clinical portal vein (PV) invasion (cPV) remain controversial. The present study aimed to determine the ability of computed tomography (CT) to diagnose pathological PV involvement (pPV) in PHC. METHODS We evaluated the morphological features (length and circumference)(More)
ABH tissue isoantigens were measured by the Specific Red Cell Adherence (SRCA) test in 66 surgical specimens of urinary bladder, including 53 transitional cell carcinomas, 2 squamous cell carcinomas and 11 controls. The SRCA test was strongly positive in 10 of 11 controls. ABH isoantigens were absent or equivocally present in 68 percent of noninvasive(More)
Limited pulmonary resection is performed mostly based on the size of lung cancer and ground-glass opacity (GGO). It has been proposed to determine the indication of segmentectomy according to hilar lymph node involvement. There is a potential risk of underestimation for lymph node involvement since there may be a skip mediastinal lymph node metastasis(More)
It is recognized that hormone receptors and HER2 are important as prognostic factors in breast cancer. Moreover, it seems likely that hormone receptors and HER2 are important predictive factors for response to chemotherapy in breast cancer. We report a case of bilateral T4 breast cancer with different expression for hormone receptors and HER2. The patient(More)
