OBJECTIVE Knowledge of prognostic factors in gastric cancer is essential to decide on single patient management. We aim to establish the value of lymph node ratio compared to lymph node involvement in the prediction of gastric cancer survival and treatment approach. METHODS Charts of ninety-six consecutive patients undergoing gastrectomy for resectable(More)
We studied the immune response of wild House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) experimentally challenged with different doses of inactivated Newcastle disease virus (NDV) vaccine. We evaluated within-individual cell-mediated and humoral responses in birds kept in outdoor aviaries, over a 6-wk period. Nonbreeding adult House Sparrows developed a significant(More)
OBJECTIVE Knowledge regarding prognostic factors in gastric cancer is essential to decide on single patient management. We aim to establish the value of large lymph node size in order to improve perioperative approach. MATERIAL AND METHODS Charts of one hundred and twenty-eight consecutive patients undergoing gastrectomy for resectable gastric cancer were(More)
Out of a population of 110 patients operated as an emergency for acute Stanford type A dissection of the thoracic aorta between 1985 and 1994, there were 84 survivors. Seventy-nine were assessed after a mean follow-up period of 47.3 months. The corrected 1 year, 5 year and 10 year survival rates were 69 +/- 5.1%, 53.1 +/- 6% and 42.1 +/- 7.1% respectively.(More)
Complications and lethality related to pacemaker implants performed to 32 infants and children at a public cardiovascular center of Santiago, Chile, from december 1979 throughout december 1989 were retrospectively assessed. Indications for pacemaker implants were complete congenital atrioventricular block (n = 22; 69%), and post-surgical arrhythmias (n =(More)
Although the predictive factors of postoperative mortality after coronary artery surgery are well known, those predictive of long-term survival have received less attention. This study reviews the outcome of a group of 480 patients between 50 and 65 years of age, operated between 1984 and 1986. The patients were classified in two groups according to the(More)
