BACKGROUND Advanced gynecological surgery undertaken in a specialized gynecologic oncology unit may be associated with significant perioperative morbidity. Validated risk prediction models are available for general surgical specialties but currently not for gynecological cancer surgery. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate risk factors(More)
Our objective was to determine obstetricians' personal choices in relation to modes of delivery and long-term outcomes. A structured confidential survey was mailed out to all Australian and New Zealand Fellows, Members, and Australian Trainees with The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology November 1999 edition. The response rate(More)
Surgical staging in early-stage uterine cancer is controversial. Preoperative serum CA-125 may be of clinical value in predicting the presence of extra-uterine disease in patients with apparent early-stage endometrial cancer. Between October 6, 2005, and June 17, 2010, 760 patients were enrolled in an international, multicentre, prospective randomized trial(More)
Sera from sheep immunized against oestrone (Group E1), oestradiol (Group E2), androstenedione (Group A) and testosterone (Group T) were given to ewes singly or as a mixture (Group M) of all 55 types as a single intravenous injection at the time of the start of mating. The number of lambs produced, the numbers of eggs shed and the display of oestrus were(More)
AIM To compare Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH) and Total Abdominal Hysterectomy (TAH) with regard to surgical safety. METHODS Between October 2005 and June 2010, 760 patients with apparent early stage endometrial cancer were enroled in a multicentre, randomised clinical trial (LACE) comparing outcomes following TLH or TAH. The main study end points(More)
The concentrations of oestradiol, androstenedione, progesterone and prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha) were measured in utero-ovarian autotransplants. The secretion of oestradiol was closely correlated with that of androstenedione (r = 0-67, P less than 0-001) indicating a common origin from the Graafian follicle. The concentration of these two steroids(More)
OBJECTIVE While there is ample literature on prognostic factors for uterine cancer, currently there are nomeans to estimate an individual's risk for recurrence or to differentiate the risk of loco-regional recurrence from distant recurrence. We addressed this gap by developing nomograms to individualize the risk of recurrence. METHODS A total of 2097(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of routine follow-up in patients with recurrent uterine cancer. METHODS In a single institution study, a total of 2637 patients were treated curatively for uterine cancer from 1990 to 2006. A total of 438 patients experienced disease recurrence. Data for detailed analysis were available from 280 of the 438 patients.(More)
Season but not hemicastration affected the cellular composition of the testis. Despite similar weight, the testicular histology differed markedly with season of birth. The number of Leydig cells and of Sertoli cells was greater in summer- than in winter-born lambs by factors of 2 and 1.5 respectively. Similarly the number of spermatogonia and their rate of(More)
