This study compares the dosimetry of high-dose-rate intracavitary brachytherapy (HDR-ICBT) performed with and without general anesthesia/spinal anesthesia (GA/SA) in patients with cervical carcinoma. We retrospectively retrieved the records of 138 HDR-ICBT applicator insertions performed in 46 patients: 69 performed with GA/SA (anesthesia group known as AG)(More)
Increased angiogenesis has been found to be an adverse prognostic factor in solid tumors but evidences show that angiogenesis also plays an important role in hematological malignancies including multiple myeloma (MM). In this report we studied the various angiogenesis parameters like microvessel density (MVD) and total vascular area (TVA), on bone marrow(More)
Accidental trauma frequently involves the extremities, and can extend to involve their blood supply, causing exsanguinating hemorrhage and pseudoaneurysm in the involved blood vessel. This is traditionally managed by surgical repair. We report a case in which control of life-threatening hemorrhage and exclusion of a large, post-traumatic pseudoaneurysm in(More)
