PURPOSE To define prognostic factors for response and long-term outcome for a wide spectrum of osteosarcomas, extending well beyond those of the typical young patient with seemingly localized extremity disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 1,702 consecutive newly diagnosed patients with high-grade osteosarcoma of the trunk or limbs registered into the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to investigate the efficacy and safety of botulinum-A toxin (BTX-A) treatment for non-neurogenic detrusor overactivity incontinence. STUDY DESIGN This prospective nonrandomized ongoing study was performed in a tertiary referral urogynecology department. In 26 women with urge incontinence and urodynamically demonstrated(More)
To test the hypothesis that cardiac functional reserve is reduced in animals with severe atherosclerosis, Yucatan minipigs were fed a high-cholesterol diet (Chol) for 8 months. Half of them was made diabetic, an additional risk factor for atherosclerosis, with streptozotocin (STZ). Another group of age-matched minipigs were fed a normal diet as controls. At(More)
BACKGROUND The penetration of a tension-free vaginal tape into the urethra is a rarely described complication. It might occur much more often, given the common clinical practice of tension-free vaginal tape implantation. We describe a less invasive approach to resection than the transvaginal urethral resection method previously reported in the literature.(More)
The aim of this trial was to examine the effects after 2 years of a single intravesical botulinum toxin-A injection (BTX-A). This prospective, observational study was conducted using urodynamic measurements and quality of life (QoL) assessment to document the effect after 2 years of a single 100 I.U. injection of BTX-A into the vesical detrusor muscle.(More)
BACKGROUND Adamantinomas are rare low-grade primary bone tumors of unknown histological origin. They typically develop in the diaphyses and metaphyses of long bones, prevalently the tibia. CASE REPORTS The cases of 2 female patients, one with localized swelling of the lateral metatarsals and one with pain of the tibia are being reported. The diagnostic(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the beneficial effects of radioactive stents and radioactive stents plus additional chemotherapy in the palliative treatment of cholangiocellular carcinomas. Cholangiocellular carcinoma cells (TFK-1 cells) were treated either with 8 Gy (RTB group) or 16 Gy (RTA group) 188Re or with 188Re irradiation (8 Gy) combined(More)
A 53-year-old woman suffering for 20 years from chronic genitourinary pain was seen in our urogynecological unit. Quality of life assessment by King's Health Questionnaire showed a highly negative impact on quality of life. Clinical examination revealed a painful and swollen distal urethra, and a small fistula was seen located 12 mm proximal to the meatus(More)
