PURPOSE To improve the results obtained by cystectomy alone and to determine the possibilities of conservative treatment in invasive bladder cancer, we designed a prospective study using a combination of fluorouracil (5-FU) plus cisplatin and concomitant radiation therapy, followed by either cystectomy or additional chemoradiotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
Treatment of local recurrence after conservative management for breast cancer is mastectomy. When mastectomy is contraindicated or refused, could brachytherapy be a therapeutic alternative for such isolated local relapses (ILR)? From February 1977 to June 1990, 38 patients, previously treated by radiation therapy or by a combination of radiotherapy and(More)
Between June 1981 and December 1986, 23 patients with prior irradiation of the neck for epithelial ENT tumors underwent salvage irradiation for isolated recurrent inoperable cervical lymphadenopathy greater than or equal to 4 cm. The initial irradiation had delivered 45-80 Gy to the cervical lymph nodes. Split course interstitial brachytherapy was used with(More)
PURPOSE Review of the frequency, clinical and biological features and treatment of type II heparin-induced thrombocyopenia. METHODS Case report and literature review. RESULTS A 65 years old woman received as antithrombotic prophylaxis low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) after prosthetic knee replacement. Day 8, asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis was(More)
Between 1962 and 1986, 32 patients with intracranial meningiomas were referred to the Institut Gustave-Roussy for external radiotherapy either after incomplete surgery, or unfavorable histology (meningiosarcoma/anaplastic meningioma), or after recurrences. In the latter case, the mean time interval between the first surgery and the recurrence was 2 years(More)
Two double-blind, placebo-controlled, balanced cross-over studies were carried out successively in 8 male normotensive volunteers to investigate the acute and chronic effects of two doses of a novel non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug flosulide (5 mg b.d. and 25 mg b.d.), on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, linking this to changes in the urinary(More)
From July 1985 to October 1988, 11 patients with prior treatment for breast cancer, and presenting an isolated superficial widespread inoperable chest wall recurrence, underwent plesiocurietherapy for salvage. Most patients (91%) had had a mastectomy. The recurrences developed in tissue that had previously been irradiated to 45-55 Gy in three patients and(More)
The aim of this study is to determine, from the data available in the literature, the indications of tracheostomy in brain injured patients, the incidence and risk factors for complications and the follow-up required until decannulation. The incidence of tracheostomy is 10% in TBI and 50 to 70% in subpopulations with a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) below 9.(More)
