Between August 1985 and September 1989, 62 patients with medically inoperable or surgically unresectable, non-small cell lung cancer were treated with both external beam radiotherapy and high dose rate bronchial brachytherapy. Treatment consisted of external beam radiotherapy (5000-6000 cGy in 5-6 1/2 weeks) and weekly high dose rate bronchial brachytherapy(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the clinical application of a near-patient testing (NPT) device for capillary blood hydroxybutyrate (HOB) measurement in evaluating a new end-point for intravenous insulin therapy in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in children. METHODS Children fulfilling the criteria for DKA were treated(More)
Electromyography was done in patients at the C6 level of quadriplegia after transfer of the brachioradialis to the flexor pollicis longus to restore lateral pinch and transfer of the posterior deltoid to the triceps to restore elbow extension. The relationship of the integrated electromyogram to pinch force during a graduated isometric contraction enabled(More)
We report a case of active tuberculosis associated with a right nonfunctioning kidney and nearly total loss of bladder capacity. Percutaneous nephrostomy and right nephroureterectomy were performed while the patient was undergoing triple drug therapy. Definitive surgical treatment consisted of ileal bladder augmentation and ileal ureter replacement. Normal(More)
Of 368 patients with unilateral testicular cancer, 12 (3.3%) suffered from a second malignant germ cell tumor; five tumors occurred synchronously, seven were treated by bilateral orchiectomy, five were treated by unilateral organ sparing surgery with enucleation of the germ cell tumor in a pilot study. Enucleation was performed for four seminomas and one(More)
During a 14-year period, 500 consecutive patients having localized prostate cancer were treated with external beam radiotherapy with curative intent. Patients were staged according to the Whitmore-Jewett and TNM systems. Median follow-up for all patients was 69 months. Local recurrence included failures detected by rectal examination and/or prostate biopsy.(More)
A 60-year-old man reported chest pain and shortness of breath. His medical history was negative for myocardial infarction but positive for "mini strokes" and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Tc-99m sestamibi cardiac imaging revealed an abnormal focus of increased activity in the left lobe of the thyroid. Although no cardiac abnormalities were found, a I-123(More)
We describe the simultaneous appearance of multiple epidermoid cysts in the right and an adult teratoma containing embryonal carcinoma and choriocarcinoma in the left testis. No similar case has previously been described. Epidermoid cysts of the testis are rare, accounting for about 1% of all testicular tumors. Epidermoid cysts are now regarded as(More)
