Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common cancer in the world. This case documents an unusual metastatic presentation of HCC in the humerus. Preoperative palliative arterial embolization of the tumor was performed to arrest severe tumor bleeding caused by the biopsy. Embolization turned out to be useful also in limiting/preventing potential(More)
Metabolic studies in a case of Lesch-Nyhan syndrome are presented. De novo synthesis of purine was shown to be inhibited upon adenine administration. The excretion of oxypurines is elevated, however, by an increased incorporation of the administered adenine into purine bases. A side effect of adenine administration is the production of the slightly soluble(More)
To investigate the safety, patient tolerance, and efficacy with 0.3 mmol/kg gadopentetate dimeglumine in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the central nervous system (CNS), a phase 3 trial was conducted in 199 patients with suspected CNS lesions. Patients received either 0.1 or 0.3 mmol/kg gadopentate dimeglumine (injection time, 15 seconds and 45 seconds,(More)
The ability of integrated (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography and computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) to distinguish between benign and malignant incidental non-secreting adrenal masses was evaluated in cancer patients. Results were compared with those of CT and shift magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A total of 1832 cancer patients who had(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate leaks after the endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms and treat them with occlusive therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy patients (11 women, 59 men), aged 26-82 years (mean, 69.2 years), underwent transfemoral insertion of endoluminal stent-grafts for treatment of aortic aneurysms. Indications were traumatic pseudoaneurysms (n = 5)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the predictability of endoleak. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen women and 60 men (mean age, 69.8 years) underwent transfemoral insertion of endoluminal stent-grafts for treatment of aortic aneurysms. Follow-up included helical computed tomography (CT) at 3-month intervals. In the cases of endoleak, angiography also was performed to(More)
Hypercalcemic crisis respresents a medical emergency. If conservative treatment is ineffective, low calcium bath or zero calcium bath hemodialysis are good alternatives. We report 4 patients treated with calcium free acetate hemodialysis because of hypercalcemic crisis due to breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, cirrhosis of the liver and immobilisation(More)
Autoimmune diseases following silicone or paraffin implantation are rarely encountered complications of plastic surgery. A 42 year old woman is presented who developed clinical and immunological features of systemic lupus erythematosus 11 years after silicone augmentation. After explanation antinuclear antibody titres decreased from 1/1280 to 1/160, C4(More)
