High-dose chemoradiotherapy followed by surgery versus surgery alone in esophageal cancer: a retrospective cohort study
(BioMed Central, 2010-06-01)
Background We aimed to assess whether high-dose preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) improves outcome in esophageal cancer patients compared to surgery alone and to define possible prognostic factors for overall survival. ...
Capillary leakage in post-cardiac arrest survivors during therapeutic hypothermia - a prospective, randomised study
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-25)
Background: Fluids are often given liberally after the return of spontaneous circulation. However, the optimal fluid regimen in survivors of cardiac arrest is unknown. Recent studies indicate an increased fluid requirement ...
Patient-reported outcomes as predictors of 10-year survival in women after acute myocardial infarction
(BioMed Central, 2010-11-25)
Background Patient-reported outcomes are increasingly seen as complementary to biomedical measures. However, their prognostic importance has yet to be established, particularly in female long-term myocardial infarction ...
The prognostic relevance of interactions between venous invasion, lymph node involvement and distant metastases in renal cell carcinoma after radical nephrectomy
(BioMed Central, 2008-12-19)
Background: To investigate a possible prognostic significance of interactions between lymph node invasion (LNI), synchronous distant metastases (SDM), and venous invasion (VI) adjusted for mode of detection, Eastern ...
Type 1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) and its impact on angiogenesis, progression and patient survival after radical nephrectomy
(BioMed Central, 2010-12-03)
Background To examine the expression of type 1 plasminogen inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC), and its possible association with microvessel density (MVD), the expression of thrombospondin-1 ...
Multiple organ failure after trauma affects even long- term survival and functional status
(BioMed Central, 2007-09-04)
Background The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of organ failure in trauma patients treated in an intensive care unit (ICU), and to study the relationship between organ failure and long-term survival and ...
