The aim of this study was to analyse the accuracy of scintigraphic and gamma probe sentinel node (SN) localization in breast cancer patients who have been submitted to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NC). Seventy-six patients with single breast cancer were included in the study, and were classified into two groups. Group 1 consisted of 40 women who had received(More)
Study design:Case report.Objectives:To identify preserved corticomotor connection in chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) in the absence of clinically observable movement.Setting:Rehabilitation Hospital and Medical Research Institute, NY, USA.Methods:The motor-evoked potential (MEP) response to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was recorded using surface(More)
A study was made of a total of 50 patients, 36 females and 14 males, with an average age of 51.3 +/- 11.71 years (range 19-71). The group consisted of outpatients who came to the neurology clinic suffering from vascular headache or other symptomatic complaint of vascular type. In all cases, the existence of an organic neurological pathology had been(More)
UNLABELLED This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of the kidney split function (KSF), the effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) and glomerular filtration rate (GF) in the evolution of diabetic nephropathy. MATERIAL AND METHODS 125 patients (IDDM:10, NIDDM:115), including 62 men, ages 18-84 years, were studied. In all cases GF (Cr 51 EDTA), ERPF(More)
We compared left lateral thoracotomy and sternotomy in rats which were mechanically ventilated for at least 1 h in order to perfect the technique and the surveillance of thoracic opening. Lateral thoracotomy proved to be superior to sternotomy as it was associated with a lower mortality within the first 24 h (20% compared with 50%; p less than 0.05).(More)
We recently reported a case study of chronic spinal cord injury (SCI), in which motor evoked potentials (MEPs) with normal amplitude and latency could be recorded from the extensor carpi radials (ECR) muscle, even though the motor power of this muscle was just 1/5.1 Calancie and Alexeeva2 have hypothesized that volume conduction from the unaffected(More)
The case of a 54 year old patient suffering from gastrinoma (within a type I multiple endocrine neoplasm) is presented. In 1990, she underwent a surgical resection. Eight years later, she suffered from a pain in the left thigh. The 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy showed bone metastasis. The CT scan did not show any hepatic involvement and the scintigraphy with(More)
