ating the motor and cognitive functions of the brain continues to be discussed in the literature [3]. However, while the scientific literature contains many reports on studies of individual subcortical nuclei amongst the basal ganglia, there are very few data on the possible role of the entopeduncular nucleus (EPN) in higher nervous activity [6, 7]. The(More)
To retrospectively review post-treatment (post-tx) FDG-PET/CT scans in patients with advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and known p16 status, treated with definitive (chemo)radiation (RT). A total of 108 eligible patients had N2A or greater HNSCC treated with chemoRT from August 1, 2008, to February 28, 2015, with post-tx PET/CT within 6(More)
Background: The treatment of resectable stages of esophageal cancer often involves pre-operative concurrent chemoradiotherapy. This study aims to evaluate the effect of cisplatin/paclitaxel-based neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy on pathologic stage and survival in patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer. Methods: Patients (n=67) received(More)
Background. Intra-abdominal metastases of invasive lobular breast cancer (ILBC) may be insidious. We report a case of metastatic ILBC that presented with dysphagia within weeks of a negative mammogram and before the development of intra-abdominal symptoms. Case. A 70-year-old female developed esophageal dysphagia. She underwent EGD which showed a short(More)
BACKGROUND The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is often used in patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) who are not yet candidates for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Newly diagnosed cardiomyopathy may be reversible, and a WCD may protect patients during the initial period of risk. We evaluate the benefit and compliance of(More)
reports on studies of the role of the entopeduncular nucleus (EPA) in the mechanisms of learning and memory [1, 3, 4], and these have not provided a complete description of the involvement of this deep brain formation in higher nervous activity. The aim of the present work was to study the effects of lesions to the EPA on the extinction of a conditioned(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcomatoid squamous cell carcinoma is a rare and aggressive form of cervical cancer. We report a case of metastatic sarcomatoid squamous cell carcinoma (SSCC) of cervix that presented with an anterior chest wall mass. CASE A 43-year-old Hispanic female presented with a two-month history of a central chest wall mass. The patient's only past(More)
