OBJECTIVE Our objective was to develop a nomogram based on pathological hysterectomy characteristics to provide a more individualized and accurate estimation of lymph node metastasis in endometrial cancer. STUDY DESIGN Data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database for 18,294 patients who underwent hysterectomy and lymphadenectomy were(More)
The medical management of symptomatic non-submucosal uterine fibroid tumors (leiomyomas or myomas) is based on the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding by any of the following: progestogens, a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device, tranexamic acid, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or GnRH analogs. Selective progesterone receptor modulators are(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the prognosis and prognostic factors in a large series of mucinous borderline tumors of the ovary (MBOT). MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of patients with MBOT treated or referred to our institution. Three inclusion criteria were defined: (1) centralized histological review by our expert pathologist, (2) exclusion of(More)
OBJECTIVE To externally validate and assess the impact of radiotherapy on the accuracy of a nomogram for predicting overall survival of women with endometrial cancer. METHODS Using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER), we assessed the concordance indexes, the discrimination and the calibration provided by a nomogram for(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of aggressive endometrioid endometrial carcinomas (EECs) and non-endometrioid carcinomas (NEECs) is essential to improve outcome. L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) expression is a strong prognostic marker in stage I EECs, but less is known about L1CAM expression in advanced-stage EECs and NEECs. This study analyses L1CAM expression(More)
The authors report the case of an intralobar pulmonary sequestration in a newborn presenting congestive heart failure. The clinical symptoms mimicked a persistent ductus arteriosus. Clinical, radiographic and echographic data suggested the diagnosis which was confirmed by the angiography. A surgical treatment was realised at seven weeks consisting in the(More)
OBJECTIVES Compare the accuracy of transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS), rectal endoscopic sonography (RES), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before deeply infiltrating endometriosis surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective study with 25 deeply endometriosis patients underwent the three imaging examinations before surgery. Calculation of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the various possible prognostic factors on the fertility-sparing management of atypical hyperplasia and endometrial cancer; to generate survival curves to estimate remission and recurrence rates according to time. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analysis. REGISTRATION NUMBER CRD42013004557. SETTING University hospital. (More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to define determinants of fertility in patients treated conservatively for mucinous borderline ovarian tumours (MBOTs), and to compare outcomes after salpingo-oophorectomy or cystectomy. METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of fertility results in a series of patients treated conservatively for MBOTs and(More)
