Hepatoid adenocarcinoma is an extrahepatic tumor characterized by morphological similarities to hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatoid adenocarcinoma of the stomach is a cancer with an extremely poor prognosis with few cases reported. Here, we describe a 75-year-old Spanish man referred to our hospital with a history of abdominal pain, general fatigue, anorexia and sickness. Initial study revealed anemia, and computed tomography scan and abdominal ultrasonography showed multiple metastases to the liver with hepatocellular carcinoma characteristics in a liver with no cirrhotic change...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the relative accuracy during treadmill walking and motor vehicle travel of the ActivPAL, PALlite and Digi-Walker accelerometers. METHODS: Forty healthy volunteers wearing all accelerometers undertook either five treadmill walks (n=20) at speeds ranging between 0.6 and 1.4 m/s or a 15 min motor vehicle journey (n=20). Step counts recorded by each accelerometer were compared with the actual step count determined by video analysis (treadmill walking) or with an actual step count of zero (motor vehicle)...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of 125I seeds implants in advanced head and neck cancer. METHOD: Treatment fields were designed to encompass the tumor/edema volume with a 2-3 cm margin, based on assessment of diagnostic CT images, 125I seeds were inserted into there and permanent left there for brachytherapy in 5 patients with advanced head and neck cancer including recurrent oropharyngeal cancer, supraglottic cancer and occult cancer. RESULT: Local tumor were controlled evidently and the patients suffering were alleviated, but 1 case occurred skin necrosis and 1 case occurred skin necrosis combined with internal carotid rupture...

For more than a decade, the de facto "standard of care" for palliative mangement of recurrent head/neck squamous carcinoma (HNSCC) has been the combination of cisplatin/5-flourouracil. With the advent of new cytotoxins, such as the taxanes, and of the molecularly targeted agents, eg., the EGFR inhibitors, the number of options for treatment in this setting has increased. However, none of these new approaches has yet been proven to be more effective than cisplatin/5-fluorouracil. Further, despite the pallitive intent of therapy in this setting, the palliative effects have been only infrequently assessed, with many studies relying on response as a surrogate for palliation...

The objective of the study was evaluation of the pulmonary venous blood flow (PVF) pattern and the influence of ventricular function and atrioventricular valve regurgitation on this flow in patients with univentricular hearts post total cavo-pulmonary connection (TCPC). Transthoracic or transoesophageal echocardiographic studies were performed in 24 children with normal hearts (group A) and in 24 patients with univentricular hearts (group B). Ventricular function and atrioventricular valve regurgitation was semiquantitatively assessed...

Cholangiocarcinoma is associated with several etiological factors including cystic dilation of the bile duct, clonorchiasis, hepatolithiasis, and sclerosing cholangitis. Jaundice is the presenting symptom in over 90% of patients who present with cholangiocarcinoma. The disease is suspected on the basis of an abnormal ultrasound or computed tomography (CT). Tumor markers are often normal, but a significant elevation of carcinoembryonic antigen or CA 19-9 should alert the clinician of a possible diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma...
