  • [The surgical treatment of malignant adrenal chromaphinomas]. [Journal Article]
    Lik Sprava. 2004 Oct-NovKvacheniuk AM
  • Pheochromoblastoma (PHB) is a tumor developing from adrenal medulla and characterized by severe course and high mortality level (15%). The severity of patients' state determined not only by presence of cancerous growth, but also due to catecholamine hyperproduction. The author has analyzed the results of surgical treatment of 60 patients with PHB, which were in surgical clinic during 1968-2002 y.…
  • [Analysis of the results in pheochromoblastoma treatment]. [Journal Article]
    Klin Khir. 2004 MarKvacheniuk AM
  • Results of operative treatment of 60 patients with pheochromoblastoma were analyzed. Surgical method of treatment is the most effective one. Lumbotomic extraperitoneal access is the method of choice. Oncological radicalism demands not only complete excision of primary tumor in sole capsule together with suprarenal gland, but also the revision of paranephral, paracaval and paraaortal cellule. Radi…
  • [Tumors of chromaffin tissue (symptoms, diagnosis, surgical treatment)]. [Journal Article]
    Khirurgiia (Mosk). 2002Vetshev PS, Simonenko VB, … Golysheva SV
  • Medical histories of 167 patients with tumors of chromaffin tissue were analyzed. Pheochromocytoma was diagnosed in 124 (74.2%) patients, pheochromoblastoma--in 32 (19.2%), extraadrenal tumor--in 11 (6.6%): paravertebral (4), between aorta and vena cava inferior (2), behind the tail of the pancreas (1), at lower pole of the kidney (2), in Zukerkandl's organ (1), in the urinary bladder (1). Comple…
  • Metastasis-association of the rat ortholog of the human epithelial glycoprotein antigen EGP314. [Journal Article]
    Oncogene. 1999 Apr 08; 18(14):2323-34.Würfel J, Rösel M, … Zöller M
  • Screening for surface molecules expressed by metastasizing rat tumors had revealed evidence for metastasis-association of a molecule also expressed on epithelial cells. The similarity to the expression profile of the panepithelial glycoprotein EGP314 prompted us to isolate and sequence the gene and to explore functional features of the molecule in transfected tumor lines. The molecule D5.7A, name…
  • Clinical course and treatment of pheochromocytomas in children. Analysis of five cases. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Pediatr Surg. 1993 Jun; 3(3):154-6.Stoba C, Skoczylas-Stoba B, Czauderna P
  • Between 1965 and 1990 five children with pheochromocytomas were treated. Clinical course, methods of diagnosis, treatment and results established by follow-up from 6 months to 20 years are presented. Hypertension and headaches occurred in all patients. One child with a malignant form of pheochromocytoma manifested central nervous symptoms imitating epilepsy and additionally diffuse pulmonary meta…
  • [Diagnosis and surgical treatment of chromaffin tumors of the adrenal glands]. [Journal Article]
    Khirurgiia (Mosk). 1991 AprMyts BV
  • The diagnosis and treatment of chromaffin-cell tumors of the adrenals in 20 patients are discussed. The late-term results were studied in follow-up periods of 2 to 20 years. In establishing the diagnosis the main attention was focussed on the clinical manifestations, ultrasonic examination, and tests for catecholamines in the urine. Postoperative complications were not encountered. Stable good re…
  • [Diagnosis and treatment of pheochromocytoma. Report of 49 cases]. [Journal Article]
    Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi. 1990 Nov; 28(11):679-81, 703.Zhang SZ
  • From 1958 to 1990, 49 patients with pheochromocytoma were treated surgically. The tumors were located in the adrenal gland in 34 cases (69.4%) and in the extra-adrenal gland in 15 cases (30.6%). In two cases the tumors were pheochromoblastoma and in 6 cases the tumors were asymptomatic. Determination of urine VMA has a screening value for patients with pheochromocytoma. The corresponding rate was…
  • [Experience with 33 operations for pheochromocytoma]. [Journal Article]
    Rozhl Chir. 1989 Nov; 68(11):705-10.Sváb J, Navrátil P
  • The authors submit experience with 33 operations of pheochromocytomas in 29 patients, incl. 5 children under 15 years (15%) and 5 adolescents aged 16 to 23 years (15%). Of 33 pheochromocytomas 32 were benign (23 adrenal, 9 extra-adrenal) and 1 malignant pheochromoblastoma. In 4 patients there were duplicit pheochromocytomas and in one triplicit (both adrenals and an extraadrenal pheochromocytoma)…
  • Oncologic aspects of pheochromocytoma: the importance of follow-up. [Journal Article]
    Surgery. 1984 Dec; 96(6):1061-6.Scott HW, Halter SA
  • During a 33-year period at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and its long-standing affiliated hospitals, Veterans Administration Medical Center and Metropolitan Nashville General Hospital, 69 patients with pheochromocytoma were seen. Despite the fact that hypertension was present in all patients at initial admission, in 11 patients seen during the 1950s the clinical diagnosis of pheochromocyto…
  • [Specific scintigraphy in pheochromocytoma]. [Journal Article]
    Schweiz Med Wochenschr. 1982 Dec 25; 112(52):1931-4.Fischer M, Winterberg B, … Vetter H
  • In 5 patients with pheochromocytoma and 1 patient with a pheochromoblastoma, 131I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine was used to localize hyperfunktioning adrenergic tissue. Except in one patient, a correct localization of the tumors was obtained. Three patients had an intraadrenal pheochromocytoma of the left adrenal gland, 1 patient a retropancreatic pheochromoblastoma and 1 patient multilocular pheochro…
  • [Prognostic significance of the morphological signs of the malignancy of a pheochromocytoma]. [Journal Article]
    Vopr Onkol. 1979; 25(6):47-51.Kalashnikov SA, Trofimova VM, Veresova AA
  • The authors have studied the prognostic value of such convincing morphological signs of tumor malignancy as cellular and nuclear polymorphism, the mitotic activity, the invasion of tumor cells into the vascular lumen, the presence of metastases in 28 operated patients with a hormone-active tumor of chromaffin tissue. The results of late-term observations within the period from 2 to 17 years indic…
  • [Importance of urinary 3-O methyldopamine in the metabolism of adrenergic tumors]. [Journal Article]
    Ann Endocrinol (Paris). 1975 Jul-Aug; 36(4):189-204.Dalmaz Y, Peyrin L
  • Urinary 3-O methyldopamine has been found highly increased in all cases of malignant tumours, as well of sympathetic nature (sympathoblastoma) as of chromaffin type (pheochromocytoma) but at a lesser extent in benign sympathetic tumours (ganglioneuroma). On the other hand, 3-O methyldopamine excretion is normal in benign pheochromocytoma. The ratio of this compound in the dopaminergic block is in…
