Extraskeletal osteosarcoma is a rare malignant soft tissue tumour. At open cholecystectomy performed for gallstones, a 61-year-old woman was found to have osseous tissue in the wall of the gallbladder. Histopathological examination of the specimen revealed a focus of extraskeletal osteosarcoma. The patient developed widespread intra-abdominal metastases 5(More)
We analysed the clinical value of the procalcitonin quick test (PCT-Q; BRAHMS Diagnostica, GmbH, Berlin) in infected pancreatic necrosis verified by guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA). In a prospective, controlled study the results of 24 patients were evaluated during 2001. PCT-Q test was performed in patients with necrosis verified on CT scan and/or(More)
PURPOSE To review outcomes of continuous motor/somatosensory-evoked potential (MEP/SSEP) monitoring, cerebrospinal fluid drainage, and selective use of iliofemoral conduits in patients undergoing endovascular repair of descending thoracic aneurysm (DTA) and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs). METHODS The clinical data of 49 patients (mean age 75±8(More)
OBJECTIVE Stent-assisted remote iliac endarterectomy (SA-RIEA) is a hybrid minimally invasive technique for treating patients with combined external iliac and common femoral disease, when the only alternative would be conventional open revascularisation. DESIGN This was a retrospective, single-centre study. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2004 to(More)
OBJECTIVE Percutaneous endovascular aortic repair (PEVAR) has been increasingly used to treat infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms, but few studies have evaluated the results in complex aortic aneurysms. We reviewed the technical success and clinical outcomes of PEVAR using large-diameter sheaths for the treatment of complex aortic aneurysms with thoracic,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated renal artery (RA) and accessory renal artery (ARA) anatomy and implications for endovascular repair using fenestrated, branched, or parallel (chimney, snorkel, and periscope) stent graft techniques. METHODS We analyzed the digital computed tomography angiograms of 520 consecutive patients treated by open or fenestrated(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of the study was to analyse the causes of injury, surgical approaches, outcome, and complications with vascular trauma in patients operated on over a period between 1986-2006. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 128 patients with peripheral arterial injuries the mechanism was direct penetration in 90 cases and blunt injury in 30 cases. In 8(More)
Fresh autologous vein grafts are commonly used for infrainguinal vascular reconstructions with good results. Previously we have confirmed the high viability index of homografts even after long-term storage at 4 degrees C in tissue culture medium. In this clinical study, we have evaluated the in vivo efficiency of this storage method in humans with major(More)
We lose more than 3000 patients a year in Hungary as a result of colorectal cancer. Our aim was to determine how the last 20 years' development of surgical techniques and related specialties has affected the outcome in this patient group at our Department. This retrospective study shows a significant increase in the resectability of colorectal cancer, while(More)
Authors reviewed the records of a patient with a 6 year long history of severing abdominal complaints, correct diagnosis came only in the state of acute abdomen for ileus. He underwent numerous radiological exams and gastroscopies in the course of repeated check-ups in other institute. Due to these results his complaints were managed as gastro esophageal(More)
