OBJECTIVES To evaluate intraoperative autologous blood collection with autotransfusion (Cell Saver) with respect to patient acceptance, risk of tumor cell co-transfusion, and risk of recurrence in patients undergoing radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. METHODS All patients explored for radical hysterectomy between August 1991 and July 1994 were(More)
Two cases of epidermal cyst of the breast, a rare benign condition, were detected during a 3-year period in a mammographic screening programme, from 57,954 screening examinations. It is not uncommon for epidermal cysts to be initially misdiagnosed. The mammographic, ultrasound and histological features are presented. It is recommended that these lesions be(More)
The purpose of this study was to correlate the steroid hormone receptor status in endometrial adenocarcinoma with tumor metastasis to the pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes, and with other known prognostic variables which influence survival. Tumor samples from 85 patients with endometrioid adenocarcinoma, or adenocarcinoma with squamous differentiation of(More)
The objective of this study is to determine if perioperative blood transfusions increase the risk of recurrence in stage IB cervical cancer. Medical records from all patients with FIGO stage IB cervical cancer undergoing radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy (RH + PLND) at the University of Iowa and the University of Nebraska from 1978 to 1990(More)

The current role of the interventional neuroradiologist in the treatment of brain tumors is limited to preoperative devascularization of vascular tumors and, occasionally, palliative therapy of metastatic or inoperable disease. Research protocols are in progress examining the role of intraarterial chemotherapy with disruption of the blood-brain barrier and(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine, in the murine model, whether human ovarian cancer cells injected intraperitoneally are subject to osmotic lysis by peritoneal lavage with sterile water, thereby decreasing the establishment of peritoneal implants. STUDY DESIGN Preliminary experiments on six nude mice determined that the injection of 20 million cells(More)
OBJECTIVES We conducted qualitative interviews with breast cancer survivors to identify themes related to institutional, personally mediated, and internalized discrimination in the medical setting. METHODS We conducted 7 focus groups and 23 one-on-one interviews with a multiethnic sample of breast cancer survivors randomly selected from a population-based(More)
Protein S is a plasma protein that serves as a cofactor for the anticoagulant effects of activated protein C. Congenital protein S deficiency is often associated with thromboembolic disease. During pregnancy a decrease in the functional and antigenic levels of protein S occurs; this change in protein S status may contribute to the thromboembolic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of positive peritoneal cytology and to evaluate its usefulness in the management of patients with early-stage cervical cancer. METHODS Peritoneal cytology was studied in 273 women undergoing primary surgical exploration for International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IB(More)
