BACKGROUND The addition of breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to screening mammography for women with BRCA mutations significantly increases sensitivity, but there is little data on clinical outcomes. We report screening performance, cancer stage, distant recurrence rate, and breast cancer-specific mortality in our screening study. METHODS From 1997(More)
BACKGROUND A frequent dilemma for obstetricians is how to keep morbidity to a minimum when faced with arrested progress at full dilatation of the cervix. Our aim was to examine maternal and neonatal morbidity associated with vaginal instrumental delivery in theatre and caesarean section, at full dilatation. METHODS We did a prospective cohort study of 393(More)
A prospective randomized clinical trial was performed in two centers to compare the effect of systemic cefuroxime and cefuroxime in bone cement in the prophylaxis of infection after total joint arthroplasty. In two comparable groups comprising 200 and 201 patients, there was no statistically significant difference in the incidence of superficial wound(More)
Voiding difficulty has been relatively overlooked as a diagnosis. Previous estimates of its prevalence have generally been no more than 14% with one exception at 24%. The aim of this study is to determine the true prevalence and associations of voiding difficulty using a validated definition [urine flow rate under 10th centile of the Liverpool Nomograms(More)
It has been suggested that the urogynecological diagnosis of sensory urgency is an early form of detrusor overactivity and may be just earlier in the spectrum of disease. The former term is generally defined as increased perceived bladder sensation during filling, a low first desire to void and low bladder capacity in the absence of recorded urinary tract(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the safety and efficacy of 2 doses of lamivudine given in combination with zidovudine with continued zidovudine monotherapy. DESIGN Double-blind, randomized, multicenter, comparative trial of 223 patients treated for 24 weeks. SETTING Patients from 32 hospitals in Europe were enrolled throughout a 1-year period. PATIENTS Adult(More)
542 Background: Although the addition of MRI to mammography for breast cancer screening in women with BRCA mutations has been shown to significantly increase sensitivity, some groups have reported high interval cancer and node-positive rates for BRCA1 mutation carriers, and the impact on survival is unknown. We report screening performance, cancer stage,(More)
