OBJECTIVE: Uterine serous carcinoma(USC)is more aggressive compared to endometrioid adenocarcinoma, and often exhibits intraperitoneal spread, resulting in a poor prognosis. It is a rare subtype of uterine cancers, accounting for 5%of cases in Japan; therefore, optimal chemotherapy regimens for patients with advanced or recurrent disease have not been established. In the present study, we evaluated the safety and efficacy of carboplatin plus taxane chemotherapy for the treatment of patients withadvanced and recurrent USC...

Recent advances in anticancer chemotherapy have resulted in an increase in the number of patients requiring a central venous port catheter, and the incidence of catheter pinch-off syndrome has been increasing. Catheter pinch-off syndrome is a rare and unusual complication. It is difficult to retrieve dislodged catheters from the pulmonary artery, especially if the catheter is stuck to the peripheral pulmonary artery. We herein describe the successful removal of a catheter stuck in the pulmonary artery with a stepwise approach...

BACKGROUND: Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a facial port-wine stain associated with either or both a retinal angioma and a cerebral pial angioma. Because a pial angioma may not be evident on the initial imaging studies, individuals at risk for epilepsy are often not identified before their first seizure. The aim of this study is to identify predictive factors predisposing Sturge-Weber patients to epilepsy. METHODS: The medical archives and photography database of our institution were reviewed to identify Sturge-Weber Syndrome patients followed up between 1990 and 2015...
