OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of the tumor markers CA125, CEA, NSE, SCC, and TPS in a group of patients with lung cancer. We estimated the influence of the method for choosing the cut-off point and of considering as a reference population either healthy controls or patients with some form of non-neoplastic(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous prognostic factors have been studied for survival in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), although there are few multivariate studies that include the histological variety of PTC. HYPOTHESIS There are prognostic factors that influence survival in a series of patients with PTC, including the histological variety, and a new(More)
Capillary hemangiomas of the tracheobronchial tree are extremely rare in adults, with hemoptysis being one of the most serious forms of presentation. An operation has been the treatment of choice, although it does involve high rates of morbidity and mortality, especially in emergency situations such as massive hemoptysis, which has led to the search for(More)
Triple therapy combining an anticalcineurin agent, corticosteroids, and azathioprine (AZA) in liver transplantation has been frequently applied, particularly in Europe. Debates have arisen concerning the use of a third drug (AZA), mainly in patients receiving tacrolimus (TAC). An open-label, multicenter, prospective, and randomized trial was performed to(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic yield of the tumour markers carbohydrate antigen (CA 125), carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC) and specific tissue polypeptide antigen (TPS) in serum, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and biopsy cytosol in a group of patients with(More)
Introduction: Right hepatic artery (RHA) injury after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) may go unnoticed clinically, but can sometimes cause necrosis of the right lobe. Exceptionally, when the necrosis spreads to segment IV, fulminant liver failure (FLF) may occur, and an urgent liver transplantation (LT) may be required. Patients and method: We provide a(More)
Right portal vein occlusion plus «in situ split» has recently been reported as a new method to hypertrophy the functional remnant volume (FRV) in 7 days after two-stage liver resection. It is a complex procedure associated with the occlusion of the intrahepatic collaterals between both lobes. We present an original technique for hypertrophying the FRV by(More)
OBJECTIVE The non-neoplastic mediastinal cysts (NNMCs) form a group of uncommon benign lesions of a congenital origin. The significant controversy regarding these cysts is whether to manage with observation or surgical resection. The aim of this study is to analyse the utility of thoracic computed axial tomography (CT) in imaging diagnosis of the NNMCs and(More)
