Chordomas and chondrosarcomas occur rarely in the skull base and have been often considered commonly with respect to the management. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical results in each series of these tumors and analyze comparative outcome. Between 1991 and 2005, 30 consecutive patients with pathological diagnosis of chordoma (n=19) or(More)
Although cabergoline is effective in the treatment of micro- and macro-prolactinoma, little is known about its efficacy in the treatment of invasive giant prolactinoma. We investigated the efficacy and safety of cabergoline in 10 male patients with invasive giant prolactinoma. Before treatment, mean serum prolactin level was 11,426 ng/mL (range,(More)
Inorganic pyrophosphatase (PPase) catalyzes the hydrolysis of pyrophosphate to form orthophosphate. Pyrophosphate can substitute for ATP under certain circumstances. We previously conducted a proteomic analysis to investigate tumor-specific protein expression in gastric cancer, and PPase was identified as a potential gastric tumor-specific marker; it was(More)
BACKGROUND Central neurocytomas (CN) are rare intraventricular tumors with benign clinical behavior that typically affect young adults. Although a favorable prognosis is generally expected after adequate management, there is no general consensus on the standard of therapy. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of radical surgery for the management of CN. (More)
BACKGROUND Successful treatment of acromegaly is known to normalize serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels within days after surgery. However, our clinical observations indicate that many cases of acromegaly show delayed normalization of serum IGF-1 levels after complete tumor resection. OBJECTIVE To study long-term changes of the serum IGF-1(More)
For a standard Artinian k-algebra A = R/I, we give equivalent conditions for A to have the weak (or strong) Lefschetz property or the strong Stanley property in terms of the minimal system of generators of the generic initial ideal gin(I) of I under the reverse lexicographic order. Using the equivalent condition for the weak Lefschetz property, we show that(More)
Stereotactic spinal radiotherapy is a promising technology for use in the multidisciplinary management of benign and malignant spinal tumors. We present two patients with residual metastatic spinal tumors and their treatment with CyberKnife (Accuray, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) after decompression and instrumentation, one of which was successful and the other not.(More)
Endolymphatic sac tumor is rare, locally aggressive hypervascular tumor of papillary structure, arising from the endolymphatic duct or sac in the posterior petrous bone. We present four cases with this tumor. Two patients were male and the other two were female. Age of each patient was 15, 52, 58, and 67 years. Three patients presented with progressive(More)
Schwannomas of the abducens nerve are extremely rare. The authors report a case with this tumor and discuss its clinical and radiographic characteristics. A 36-year-old man presented with 6-month history of diplopia. Right abducens nerve paresis was noted on neurologic examination. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 4-cm sized heterogeneously enhancing(More)
OBJECT Brain metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are rare, and the evidence of the effectiveness of Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in this disease is lacking. The authors report their institutional experience with GKS in patients with brain metastases from HCCs. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 73 consecutive(More)
