Interindividual anatomic variation is great as shown by magnetic resonance imaging, increasing the risk of vascular damage. Four simple technical precautions are recommended to prevent accidents: insertion at the(More)
Modern nuclear medicine tests can be of great help to today's surgical oncologists. The new techniques of positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and the availability of new radiopharmaceuticals for localization of tumors and assessment of organ function provide information vital to the management of(More)
Chemotherapy using cis dichlorodiamine platinum (CDDP) in doses of 30 and 60 mg/m2 was carried out in 6 patients who had adenocarcinoma of the ovary, that had not been treated before, 15 to 120 minutes before surgery was carried out. The results of doses of platin given on the blood levels are demonstrated. A slight and progressive increase in the plasma(More)
