An 80-mg dose of adriamycin was given intravesically once a month to 58 patients with superficial transitional cell tumor of the bladder. Complete cytological remission was achieved in all 11 patients with previously untreated, flat carcinoma in situ lesions. In 19 carcinoma in situ patients, who were previously treated by other means, cytological remission(More)
Cancer of the penis is an uncommon disease in the western part of the world but it represents a significant portion of male cancer in other countries as in Asia, Africa, and South America, where in certain areas it accounts for 20% of the cancer occurrence in male patients. The treatment has been based mainly on surgical excision with or without regional(More)
In a prospective randomized multicenter trial patients with highly or moderately differentiated prostatic carcinoma, previously untreated, were allotted either to oral Estramustine phosphate or to intramuscular polyestradiol phosphate plus oral ethinyl estradiol. As regards frequency and duration of tumour remission there was no statistical difference(More)
The aim of the study is to evaluate the clinical characteristics of intraoperative retinal breaks (RBs) and postoperative retinal detachment (RRD) in patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for macular disorders, who were treated preoperatively with prophylactic peripheral laser retinopexy.This observational cohort study comprised of 254 patients(More)
229 patients with Grade 1–2 tumours (WHO), all category Ta or T1 (UICC) and surgically treated, were followed clinically and by flowcytofluorometric DNA-analysis (FCM). The tumours were characterised by their DNA profile. 175 cases were found to be diploid and fiftyfour cases showed aneuploidy. The mean follow-up time with continous FCM analysis was 2.6(More)
The total DNA content in single cells from bladder washingtons of patients with tumours in the bladder has been analysed by means of a rapid-flow cytofluorometer. The frequency of occurrence of aneuploid cell populations has been related to the cytological findings and the histological grading according to Bergkvist et al. The frequency of occurrence of(More)
