The optimal management of adult soft-tissue sarcomas is not clearly established. To assess prognostic factors and survival, the experience of 45 recent successive cases was reviewed. Data were collected from a retrospective database (1993-2005) and statistically analyzed. Rhabdomyosarcomas were excluded. The mean age was 50.1 years; there were 24 men and 21(More)
Superficial soft-tissue sarcomas are malignant mesenchymal tumors located within the cutaneous and/or subcutaneous layers. Most superficial soft-tissue sarcomas are low-grade tumors; yet, the risk of local recurrence is high, and initial wide surgery is the main prognostic factor. Some of these superficial sarcomas may grow, following an infiltrative(More)
This paper will try and describe the installation of a 3T MRI in an anti-cancer centre. Functional sequences become indispensable in the assessment of targeted treatments. It is only possible to carry out these treatments on a routine basis in acceptable examination times with 3T. The technical constraints are overcome with third generation MRI and the(More)
PURPOSE Clip migration occurs frequently in clinical practice (13-20%), irrespective of the approach. The purpose of this article is to suggest tricks in order to decrease clip migration and optimize presurgical localization. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective study of breast macrobiopsy from a lateral approach performed between March 2003 and June 2004:(More)
Haematomas are common and sarcomas are rare. However the absence of trauma or a light trauma should alert the clinician to the possibility that the abnormality may represent haemorrhage into a tumor and not just haematoma, even in a haemophilic patient. Clinical findings, sonography with Doppler assessment and magnetic resonance images with contrast(More)
PURPOSE We describe clinical and pathological aspects and survival of 12 recent of radio-induced soft tissue sarcoma. METHOD We performed a single center case-control study, with 23 control matched by grade (according to Federation nationale des centres de lutte contre le cancer Grading) and by location. Survival comparison used Log Rank test. RESULTS(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether it is appropriate to routinely undertake surgery if flat epithelial atypia (FEA) or pure flat epithelial atypia (pFEA) is found on large-core biopsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 2005 and 2010, 1678 large-core biopsy procedures were carried out, which led to 136 FEA sites being identified, 63 of which across 59 patients were(More)

OBJECTIVE To describe post-CyberKnife® imaging characteristics of liver metastases as an aid in assessing response to treatment, and a novel set of combined criteria (CC) as an alternative to response according to change in size (RECIST). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Imaging data and medical records of 28 patients with 40 liver metastases treated with(More)
BACKGROUND Case reports of primary pulmonary artery sarcomas are very rare. METHODS We described herein eight new cases diagnosed between December 2000 and December 2004. RESULTS There were four men and four women, with median age of 52 years. Presenting symptoms mimicked pulmonary emboli in all cases. There were six "intimal sarcomas" and two(More)
