BACKGROUND Twenty common genetic variants have been associated with risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC) in genome wide association studies to date. Since large differences between populations exist, generalisability of findings to any specific population needs to be confirmed. AIM The aim of this study was to perform an association study between(More)
Metastatic tumors of the long bones usually present with severe pain refractory to analgesic therapy. Pathologic fractures of the bone may lead to the significant decrease of patient's quality of life and necessitate further surgical therapy. We present 66 year old female with metastatic left breast carcinoma (T2N0M0) diagnosed 5 years before presentation(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this research was to study the levels of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG) in tumour tissue samples of colorectal carcinoma based upon immunohistochemical detection and compare those results with patients' outcome. METHODS Tumour blocks of patients surgically treated for colorectal cancer were evaluated by 8-oxodG(More)
Objectives. The aim is to delineate relevant risk factors and construct an algorithm for earlier performance of selective mesenteric angiography, thus lowering mortality rates of acute mesenteric ischemia. Methods. During a 5-year period 31 patients were examined. Thirteen risk factors were analysed and compared to standard diagnostic procedures. Results.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To decrease surgical trauma and scar formation we present intracorporeal two-port procedure in selected patients. METHODOLOGY Supraumbilical 5mm port is used for the laparoscope. Suprapubic 12mm port is in the midline or left paramedian position below the underpants line. Pretied loop suture is tied around the base, 1-2 cm distally from(More)
We present a case of a 37-year-old female, with large adenocarcinoma of transverse colon, and metastases in spleen, liver, peritoneum, greater omentum, gall bladder and right adnexa. She was transferred to our Hospital, and extensive elective cytoreductive surgery with intraabdominal hyperthermal chemotherapy (HIPEC) was performed. Couple of months later,(More)
A hernia is an area of weakness or complete disruption of the fibromuscular tissues of the body wall. In addition to the body wall, hernias can occur in the diaphragm, pelvic wall, perineum, pelvic floor, and internal abdominal viscera (hernias through omental or mesenteric defects, ligaments and folds). Surgical repair of different types of hernia is the(More)
Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach is a rare type of gastric carcinoma with an extremely poor prognosis. We describe a 72-year-old man who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy which revealed 50 mm exulcerated lesion with a central necrosis on the lesser curvature and the posterior wall of the body of the stomach. Gastric biopsy revealed a poorly(More)
The purpose of our study was to evaluate initial results following introduction of Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) and Cytoreductive Surgery (CS). Twenty two patients with intraperitoneal malignancy undergone cytoreductive surgery (CS) and hyperthermic intraoperative chemotherapy (HIPEC) between January of 2007 and January 2010. Nine(More)
