The time of ingestion of diazepam and the occurrence of diplopia were so closely related that it is likely that diazepam caused the divergence paralysis an association which is(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To describe and discuss extended abdominoperineal resection with partial prostatectomy using the ultrasonic harmonic scalpel as an alternative to total pelvic exenteration in lower rectal T3 cancer contiguous with the prostate. METHODOLOGY Extended abdominoperineal resection with partial prostatectomy was performed in 4 patients with lower(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Local recurrence occurs in 10 to 30% of patients with rectal cancer following curative resection. However treatment of choice remains controversial. We assessed the results of total pelvic exenteration for locally recurrent cancer of the rectum retrospectively. METHODOLOGY We reviewed medical charts of 45 patients with rectal cancer who(More)
PURPOSE This retrospective study identifies the clinicopathologic factors (age, gender, size of tumor, location, tumor stage, lymph node metastasis, histologic differentiation, and adjuvant therapies) that are useful in predicting long-term survival in patients undergoing total pelvic exenteration for advanced primary rectal cancer. METHODS We reviewed(More)
AIM To evaluate the influence of viral hepatitis status on the long-term outcome of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in non-cirrhotic livers. PATIENTS AND METHODS Two hundred and seventy-nine patients diagnosed with HCC underwent liver resection. Histologic examination of the resected liver confirmed the absence of cirrhosis in 145 patients.(More)
