A 66-year-old woman who had prolonged contact with cattle presented with pain at the thigh and groin areas. The patient had undergone an uncemented THA for a hip fracture 3 years previously.

BACKGROUND The majority of coeliac disease (CD) patients are not being properly diagnosed and therefore remain untreated, leading to a greater risk of developing CD-associated complications. The major genetic risk heterodimer, HLA-DQ2 and DQ8, is already used clinically to help exclude disease. However, approximately 40% of the population carry these(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the value of cytology in the differential diagnosis of ductal versus lobular carcinoma of the breast. STUDY DESIGN In this study we examined 11 cytologic parameters in fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology specimens from 52 patients who underwent surgery and had subsequent histologic diagnoses. Eighty-eight percent (46 cases) were(More)
INTRODUCTION We present the preliminary results of the effects on percutaneous translumenal angioplasty (PTA) cerebral haemodynamics in thirty patients with important stenosis of the internal carotidal artery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using transcranial doppler (TCD) with acetazolamide (ACZ) as a vasodilatory stimulus, we assessed vasomotor reactivity (VR(More)
A case of primary rhabdomyosarcoma of the prostate diagnosed by fine needle aspiration biopsy and confirmed with immunocytochemistry is described. Evaluation of DNA content of tumor cell nuclei by image analysis was performed to complement the diagnosis and clinical stage information and to further predict the tumor response to chemotherapy. Diploid tumors(More)
INTRODUCTION Ultrasound is regularly used for the detection of carotid stenosis which can be treated surgically. This technique includes continuous Doppler, which together with study of blood flow in the orbit is very useful and should be used systematically, not only in certain cases. We present a study of the usefulness of this technique in our Cerebral(More)
INTRODUCTION The characteristics of restenosis and remodeling after carotid percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) were badly known. OBJECTIVE To describe these characteristics in our series of carotid PTA. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 78 cases of PTA for symptomatic > 70% atherosclerotic stenosis of the extracranial internal carotid artery,(More)
