We review our experience with 82 patients with nongenital cancers metastatic to the ovary. All patients were referred for evaluation of an ovarian mass. The patients had primary carcinoma of the breast (n = 28), colon (n = 23), stomach (n = 22), pancreas (n = 7), or gallbladder (n = 2). The overall actuarial 5-year survival rate was 10%. Five-year survival(More)
Between 1982 and 1991, 76 of 322 (24%) patients with primary endometrial adenocarcinoma and morphologic risk factors underwent surgery including systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy (LA). A mean number of 37 lymph nodes per patient was removed. The number of removed nodes did not differ with respect to mode of LA, FIGO stage, depth of myometrial invasion, and(More)
A prospective, randomized study comparing single dose intravenous antibiotic prophylaxis with multiple-dose regimen in patients undergoing radical surgery for gynecologic malignancy was carried out. The majority of patients had cervical cancer. Thirty-seven patients in group A received one dose of 4 g piperacillin and 800 mg tinidazole 30 minutes before(More)
The question was posed, whether a relationship could be established between prenatal and perinatal events and subsequent sudden infant death. The birth records of eighty mothers, whose infants died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) between 1982 and 1987, were reviewed for obstetric complications. The records immediately following the respective SIDS(More)
Ninety patients with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) were randomly assigned to loop excision (n = 38) or cold-knife conization (n = 52). All specimens were well evaluable at histology. The average width of the lesions at histology was 10.2 and 9.7 mm, respectively (ns). The average weight of the specimens was 2.6 and 5.6 g (P < 0.01) and the(More)
To study scalene lymph node involvement in ovarian cancer, 37 patients with this disease underwent pretherapeutic open sampling of the left scalene fat tissue. Only 1 patient had a palpable supraclavicular mass. Positive scalene nodes were found in 7 (22%) of 32 patients with stage III or IV disease. Three of four patients with positive scalene nodes also(More)
Patients with tumours of the lower pelvis were submitted to a biopsy of the scalene fat pad. The primary tumour was a carcinoma of the ovary in 32, of the cervix in 4, and of the body of the uterus in 2 cases. Microscopic metastases in the pre-scalene lymph nodes were found in 7 of the 32 cases of ovarian carcinoma (21.8%), but in none of the patients with(More)
Adjuvant chemoradiotherapy was administered to 26 patients with stage Ic-IV ovarian cancer after radical cytoreductive surgery. All patients received six cycles of carboplatin, epirubicin, and prednimustine and had no evidence of disease after completion of chemotherapy. They received whole-abdominal radiation and radiation to the retroperitoneal lymph(More)
There is no general recommendation with regard to a certain age, after which prophylactic oophorectomy should be performed at the time of hysterectomy. We investigated how many patients who were treated for ovarian cancer at the University Clinic of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Graz between 1980 and 1989, had a history of hysterectomy because of benign(More)
