Uterine leiomyomas (fibroids), the most common benign tumor in women of childbearing age, can cause symptoms including dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, urinary symptoms, pain and infertility. Hysterectomy is a common approach to treating uterine fibroids, and less invasive surgical approaches such as myomectomy and uterine artery embolization also have been shown(More)
BACKGROUND Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is considered to play an important role in the development of cervical carcinoma, and it is known that certain HPV types, such as HPV-16 and HPV-18, are highly associated with cervical carcinoma. However, the pathologic behavior of other HPV types remains unclear. Recently, a new HPV detection technique, the(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the efficacy and feasibility of hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) using paclitaxel as consolidation therapy in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer. METHODS Between November 1999 and January 2004, 18 patients with a negative second-look and 1 patient with positive peritoneal cytology only with stage Ic-IIIc(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the clinical effect of intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy (IPHC) in ovarian cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 117 stages Ic-III ovarian cancer patients, who were diagnosed at the Gynecology Department of Kangnam St. Mary's Hospital between January 1994 and January 2000. Of these, 57 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a successful treatment of symptomatic adenomyosis using magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS). DESIGN Case study. SETTING General hospital. PATIENT(S) A 47-year-old premenopausal woman with focal symptomatic adenomyosis. INTERVENTION(S) MRgFUS. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S) Score on the Uterine Fibroids(More)
BACKGROUND Normal cells lose their ability to divide after a finite number of cell divisions. Under the influence of Simian virus 40 (SV 40) large T-antigen, which interacts with the cell cycle regulators p53 and pRb, cells enter a phase of an extended pre-immortalized cells. Immortalization-up-regulated protein 1 (IMUP-1) and immortalization-up-regulated(More)
Microsatellite instability (MSI) has been reported in 25% to 45% of sporadic endometrial carcinoma. The clinicopathologic and molecular characteristics of MSI-high phenotype in colorectal and gastric carcinomas have been widely investigated; however, the clinicopathologic impact of MSI on endometrial carcinomas remained unclear. This study was performed to(More)
Persistent infection with high-risk human papilloma viruses (HPV) is the worldwide cause of many cancers, including cervical, anal, vulval, vaginal, penile, and oropharyngeal. Since T cells naturally eliminate the majority of chronic HPV infections by recognizing epitopes displayed on virally altered epithelium, we exploited Poisson detection mass(More)

Placental site trophoblastic tumour (PSTT) is a very rare and unique form of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). This tumour represents a neoplastic transformation of intermediate trophoblastic cells that normally play a critical role in implantation. PSTT can occur after a normal pregnancy, abortion, term delivery, ectopic pregnancy or molar(More)
