The association between the levels of various fatty acids in adipose breast tissue and the emergence of visceral metastases was prospectively studied in a cohort of 121 patients with an initially localised breast cancer. Adipose breast tissue was obtained at the time of initial surgery, and its fatty acid content analysed by capillary gas chromatography. A… (More)
We present a multicenter analysis of 24 cases of prenatal diagnosis of corpus callosum agenesis and review the literature concerning prognosis factors for continuing or interrupting pregnancy.
Pregnancy induces numerous changes in the physiology of the woman. Those changes are necessary for the embryo and fetus to have a normal growth, and for the woman to adapt to that physiologic event. A 50% raised cardiac flow is the consequence of increased systolic flow and cardiac frequency. Blood volume is about 40% larger than in non-pregnant woman. It… (More)
The aim of this study was to determine the role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in investigating fetal cerebral lesions induced by long term exposure to cocaine during sheep pregnancy. Cerebral Magnetic Resonance Imaging was performed on two groups of fetuses at 125 days of gestation (normal gestation: 145 days). The control group consisted of eight… (More)
We report preliminary results of a three year follow-up of ten children affected with apparently isolated corpus callosum agenesis (prenatal diagnosis). This population was collected from a multicenter prospective study: annual survey included physical examination, developmental outcome and psychometric evaluation. Febril convulsions appeared to be more… (More)
