BACKGROUND Among HIV-infected patients, hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection is associated with lower cholesterol levels, but it remains unclear how it affects cardiovascular outcomes. METHODS We performed logistic regression to evaluate acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and cerebrovascular disease (CVD) events by HCV status among HIV-infected US veterans(More)
OBJECTIVE The objectives are to report the dosimetric analysis, preliminary clinical outcome, and comparison with published data of 3-dimensional magnetic resonance-based high dose rate brachytherapy (BT) in cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data set of 24 patients with cervical cancer treated with high dose-rate brachytherapy applications was(More)
BACKGROUND Scheduled treatment interruptions are being evaluated in an effort to decrease costs and side effects of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). A schedule of 1 week on and 1 week off therapy offers the promise of 50% less drug exposure with continuously undetectable HIV RNA concentration. METHODS In the Staccato study 600 patients on(More)
PURPOSE Trans-abdominal ultrasonography (US) is capable of determining size, shape, thickness, and diameter of uterus, cervix and disease at cervix or parametria. To assess the potential value of US for image-guided cervical cancer brachytherapy, we compared US-findings relevant for brachytherapy to the corresponding findings obtained from MR imaging. (More)
One hundred and fifty-one patients aged between 3 and 70 years with early stage unfavorable Hodgkin lymphoma were included. Patients received 4-6 cycles of ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine) chemotherapy and involved field radiation therapy (IFRT). The most common histology was mixed cellularity (43%). The majority had stage IIAX(More)
Benign liver tumors in children are rare and data regarding the surgical outcomes are deficient. We reviewed our experience in the management of these tumors particularly the extent, safety, and effectiveness of surgical resection. Between March 2005 and March 2014, 10/90 liver resections were performed for benign liver tumors. Three other patients received(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The rarity of Ewing sarcoma (ES) of the jaw coupled with the technical challenge of resection and associated functional and cosmetic impairment has resulted in deficient data on surgical management of these tumors. The purpose of this study is to describe the results of surgical excision and reconstruction of primary non-metastatic(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate the role of adaptive radiation therapy for children receiving curative radiation therapy to the head and neck region. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten children receiving definitive, conformal radiation therapy to the head and neck region were prospectively evaluated for anatomic changes during the course of radiation(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence and optimal management of postoperative chylous leak of neuroblastoma is inadequately documented. We analyzed the risk factors, management, and the implication of chyle leak following surgery for abdominal neuroblastoma. METHODS One hundred sixty patients who underwent surgery for abdominal neuroblastoma between September 2004 and(More)
