To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravaginal administration of NOD isosorbide mononitrate (IMN)(More)
Primary leiomyosarcoma of the breast is very rare and represents a diagnostic challenge. Only 16 cases have been reported in the English language literature. We report another new case and have analysed reports of the previous cases aiming to present a simple evidence-based approach to the clinical, radiological and pathological diagnosis of this rare(More)
Objective and design: Neutrophil-derived hypochlorous acid (PMN-HOCL) is a potent bactericidal and fungicidal agent. Neutrophils from patients with multiple organ failure (MOF) have an altered ability to inhibit Candida albicans. Conversely antifungal agents are effective in decreasing mortality in MOF patients with fungaemia. We determined the effect on(More)
Dissecting aneurysms generally cause radiating back pain, chest pain, or symptoms caused by aortic insufficiency. Presentation solely with abdominal pain is rare. We report on a patient with dissecting thoracic aortic aneurysm who presented solely with abdominal pain. The possibility of intrathoracic disease must be considered in every patient with(More)

It is usually replaced by a Foley catheter when it becomes non-functional because of blockage or wear and tear. PEG tube migration is an unusual complication which may not be noticed by the patient or the medical(More)
Although abscesses and fistulae are common complications of Crohn's disease, the gluteal area is a rare site for abscess formation. The abscess results from extension of pus through the fascial plains of the pelvis and through the greater sciatic foramen into the gluteal area. This is the first reported left gluteal abscess due to Crohn's disease as pus(More)
The effect of intrauterine instillation of 50 micrograms of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) on the non-pregnant human uterus was evaluated in 10 volunteers, before and after systemic administration of human menopausal gonadotrophin (HMG). The cases were either in the early proliferative (n = 5) or late secretory (n = 5) phases of the cycle. Before HMG(More)
