The long-term results of 30 patients (31 hips) who underwent derotational femoral varus osteotomy for Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease are presented. Pain, leg-length discrepancy, Trendelenburg sign, and range of motion at the operated hip were examined clinically. Radiographic analysis included measurement of the Wiberg angle, epiphyseal index, acetabular index,(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnostic tools to predict the prognosis in patients suffering from breast cancer (BC) need further improvements. New technological achievements like the gene profiling of circulating tumour cells (CTC) could help identify new prognostic markers in the clinical setting. Furthermore, gene expression patterns of CTC might provide important(More)
Desmoid tumors are fibroblastic/myofibroblastic neoplasms, which originate from musculo-aponeurotic structures and are classified as deep fibromatoses. Despite their benign histologic appearance and lack of metastatic potential, desmoid tumors may cause aggres?sive local infiltrations and compression of surrounding structures. They are often associated with(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer (BC) represents one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths worldwide. New tools for diagnostic staging and therapeutic monitoring are needed to improve individualized therapies and improve clinical outcome. The analyses of circulating tumour cells may provide important prognostic information in the clinical setting. (More)
Two series of novel indolyl thiazolidin-4-one derivatives 4a-j and 5a-j were obtained by an ecofriendly synthetic protocol by treating a mixture of Schiff's bases (0.01 mol) with thioglycolic acid or thiolactic acid (0.01 mol) and anhydrous zinc chloride in catalytic amount in DMF as solvent under ultrasound irradiation, using an ultrasound synthesizer with(More)
In this work, the combined use of ultrasonic energy and molecular sieves was investigated for synthesis of 3-(5-substituted-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-ylimino)indolin-2-one derivatives 5(a–j). The equimolar quantities of 5-substituted-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amine and isatin were sonicated in the presence of activated molecular sieves 3 Å at a temperature of 50 °C and(More)
