MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with primary brain tumor or brain metastases underwent CT and MR examination. Then they were treated on X knife in the Clinic of Radiation Oncology in Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute Brno. RESULTS A(More)
INTRODUCTION Based on our experience with stereotactic evacuation of spontaneous supratentorial hematomas this method has also been used for evacuation of spontaneous infratentorial hematoma by the transtentorial approach. MATERIAL AND METHOD The authors present a series of 6 patients with spontaneous intracerebral hematomas evacuated by the frame-based(More)
Segmental absence of intestinal musculature (SAM) may, rarely, present with symptoms of ileus or intestinal perforation.

The authors have performed an extensive recherché on the(More)
Cystic retrorectal tumors are rare tumors with a risk potential for a malignant growth. Their diagnostics, location and decision on the surgical approach--abdominal, perineal or combined--are based on ultrasound, CT and MRI examination findings. A complete removal of the neoplasm without opening the wall of the cystic tumor is a pre-requisite for a good(More)
Recently, the laparoscopic approach has been used more frequently for liver resection. The authors describe the method of laparoscopic resection of surface as well as subcapsulary metastases, which had previously been destroyed by radiofrequency ablation. This technique provides relatively easy, complete removal of the tumorous tissue. The disadvantages of(More)
