Patients with endometrial carcinoma underwent angio computed tomography (CT) prior to surgery to evaluate the extent of the carcinoma. The subjects of the study were 87 patients operated on at the Cancer Institute Hospital during the period 1983 to 1986. After preoperative bilateral internal iliac angiography, angio CT was performed using the already(More)
Angio computed tomography (CT) was performed in 87 previously untreated patients with endometrial carcinoma to study its clinical usefulness. All the patients subsequently underwent surgery and the angio CT findings were correlated with the surgical and pathologic findings. The results were as follows: 1. The tumor appeared as areas of low density in(More)
Between 1950 and 1986, 14 cases of primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube were treated and diagnosed at the Cancer Institute Hospital. These cases constituted 0.13% of the total number of gynecologic malignancies at the hospital during the period. The clinical/pathological findings and prognoses were described. Of the 14 cases, the average age was 56.0(More)
MRI of bladder cancer was accomplished in 28 patients. All of the 28 patients were simultaneously studied by CT, and 22 were also studied by transurethral US before operation. MRI is not as useful as US for local staging of bladder cancer. However, MRI is more useful for diagnosing extravesical extension and covers the deficit of the overdiagnosing tendency(More)
During the one year period from February 1986 to January 1987, 839 pregnant women were screened for Chlamydia trachomatis infection of the uterine cervical canal by the enzyme immunoassay (EIA, Chlamydiazyme) method. Out of 768 normal pregnant women positive results were obtained in 21 women for a positive rate of 2.7%. In none of 64 women with spontaneous(More)
We report 4 patients with surgically proved idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis. Retroperitoneal fibrosis was diagnosed correctly in 3 of the patients by computerized tomography. On the computerized tomogram, retroperitoneal fibrosis demonstrated a characteristic soft tissue mass enveloping the vessels and ureters. In 2 patients, the follow-up computerized(More)
To facilitate postoperative flatus, Prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) was given intravenously to 23 patients who underwent urological operations. The patients were 14 males and 6 females aged from 20 to 77 years old. Patients with hypertension or cardiovascular disease were not included. Twelve operations were performed under general anesthesia, and 8(More)
Twenty-one patients with superficial bladder cancer entered an analysis of single dose (2'R)-4'-O-tetrahydropyranyladriamycin (THP) or adriamycin (ADM) administration. The patients in each group that have been or not have been treated previously with anti-cancer drugs were randomized into two groups, one was given THP and the other ADM. Thirty-mg of THP or(More)
