BACKGROUND Bone metastasis represents an increasing clinical problem in advanced gastric cancer (GC) as disease-related survival improves. In literature, few data on the natural history of bone disease in GC are available. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data on clinicopathology, skeletal outcomes, skeletal-related events (SREs), and bone-directed therapies for 208(More)
The occurrence of post-infarction epilepsy was investigated in 68 patients with angiographically proven internal carotid artery occlusion and in 56 patients with middle cerebral artery occlusion. Epileptic seizures occurred during follow-up in 9% of the carotid artery group and in 21.4% of the middle cerebral artery group. The different incidence of(More)
The authors studied a 26-year-old healthy subject in whom a large arachnoid cyst of the right middle cranial fossa was revealed by chance. As there were no subjective or objective neurological findings, we checked the existence of any neuropsychological impairment. In spite of this, the patient obtained a good general performance level and sometimes the(More)
The occurrence of posttraumatic epilepsy was studied in 219 patients who had had a computed tomographic (CT) scan within three days after a civilian head trauma. Posttraumatic epilepsy was observed in 13 patients. All of them had focal brain damage shown by CT scan. The predicting power of both clinical risk factors and CT scans was analyzed by multiple(More)
Out of 233 patients admitted for head trauma during 1977-1978, 93 had a CT scan examination within the first 48 hours. Forty-nine of these had at least one clinical risk factor for post-traumatic epilepsy. Ten of this group developed post-traumatic epilepsy. In all cases early CT scan showed focal brain damage, which was related more significantly to(More)
Cetuximab improves efficacy when added to chemotherapy for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Effective management of skin reactions from cetuximab improves quality of life (QoL), and treatment compliance in clinical trials. No data are available from real-world settings. The ObservEr observational, multicenter, prospective study evaluated QoL, the(More)
We studied the electroclinical features and prognosis of 103 patients with tonic-clonic seizures alone. Patients were classified into three groups according to seizure semiology and interictal EEG: primary grand mal, focal grand mal and indeterminate grand mal. Discriminant analysis showed that a number of other electroclinical features had no significant(More)
