The objective of this study was to verify the frequency of p53 and BCL-2 immunohistochemical expression in patients with endometrial carcinoma and to correlate it with histological factors (histological type, tumor grade, depth of myometrial invasion, lymph node involvement and surgical staging) and survival. Forty-eight patients with endometrial carcinoma(More)
OBJECTIVE To help determine whether global collaborations for prospective gynecologic surgery trials should include hospitals in developing countries, we compared surgical and oncologic outcomes of patients undergoing laparoscopic radical hysterectomy at a large comprehensive cancer center in the United States and a cancer center in Colombia. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effects of corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) on contrast sensitivity (CS), visual acuity, and corneal topography investigating possible predictors of efficacy. METHODS Sixty-eight eyes of 34 patients with progressive keratoconus were enrolled in this prospective study. CXL was performed in one eye and the other eye was left(More)
OBJECTIVE The optimal surgical approach for complete lymphadenectomy in patients with endometrial cancer is controversial. The objective of our study was to compare the surgical outcomes of extraperitoneal laparoscopic, transperitoneal laparoscopic, and robotic transperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy in endometrial cancer staging. METHODS A(More)
We compared two different methods of microscopic lymph node examination of cervical cancer radical hysterectomy specimens to ascertain which method translates into higher nodal counts and improved detection of nodal metastasis, at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) and the University of North Carolina (UNC). We retrospectively reviewed the records of 155(More)
OBJECTIVES Radical trachelectomy is considered standard of care in patients with early-stage cervical cancer interested in future fertility. The goal of this study was to compare operative, oncologic, and fertility outcomes in patients with early-stage cervical cancer undergoing open vs. minimally invasive radical trachelectomy. METHODS A retrospective(More)
After innervating the sternocleidomastoid muscle, the spinal accessory nerve emerges and down crosses the posterior cervical triangle to innervate the trapezius. At the posterior triangle, the nerve is closely related to local lymph nodes and may be injured by their enlargement or surgical removal. Injury to this nerve is uncommom. Most cases are(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of the combined use of bevacizumab (Avastin®) and combined with infliximab (Remicade®) in the treatment of naive choroidal neovascularization due to age-related macular degeneration eyes. METHODS Intravitreal injections of bevacizumab combined with infliximab in 6 neovascular age-related macular degeneration eyes. All(More)
This study aims to evaluate and to compare the performance of cervical digital photography (CDP) to the visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and visual inspection with Lugol’s iodine (VILI) methods for screening the uterine cervix cancer and its precursor lesions in developing countries. A cross-sectional study was performed in Brazil. 176 women were(More)
