Ovarian cancer is one of the most frustrating problems in gynecology. Each year about 14,000 new cases are diagnosed in the United States and almost 11,000 patients die from their ovarian cancer. The results from treatment are no better in 1973 than they were in the previous two decades; Early diagnosis is a matter of chance rather than a scientific method.(More)
One hundred ninety-one cases of histopathologically confirmed invasive carcinoma of the cervix were available to study. Until early diagnosis is made routinely and treatment instituted with a predictable promise for cure, attention must be devoted to studying the natural history of disease, its histologic and nuclear grading, stromal reaction, and whether(More)
Aneurysms of the distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) are rare and their surgical treatments present some unique difficulties from a technical standpoint. In this report, we presented our experiences of cases with DACA aneurysms, and analyzed the clinical features and prognostic factors affecting the final outcomes. Among 770 cases of intracranial(More)
Advanced ovarian carcinoma continues to be a difficult tumor to evaluate noninvasively. Recent developments in chemotherapy have enhanced response rates in this disease, thus improving the likelihood of tumor regression. Computed Tomography (CT) allows the noninvasive estimation of tumor extent in patients with ovarian carcinoma. Seventeen patients with(More)

It can be caused by benign or malignant diseases, as a result of a tumor in the dermal lymphatics of the breast, lymphatic congestion caused by breast, lymphatic drainage obstruction, or by congestive heart failure.

Very late recurrent invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix (over 10 years) after successful initial radiation treatment is a very rare occurrence (approximately 0.5%). Even though the treatment of choice has been radical surgery, there are a number of patients in whom surgery was regarded as undesirable. Ten such patients were reirradiated for these(More)
