Abstract
A total of eight cases of cystosarcoma phyllodes in women under 25 years of age were reported to the Swedish Cancer Registry during a ten-year period (1960 to 1969). Only one of these tumors was malignant. It was successfully treated with simple mastectomy and postoperative radiation therapy. Of the remaining seven cases, six were treated with local excision of the lesion and one with simple mastectomy. In no case, did the tumor recur during a follow-up of an average of ten years. Local excision seems to be sufficient for the benign form of the tumor, whereas simple mastectomy is indicated for the malignant form. Radical mastectomy is indicated only of the tumor has invaded the pectoral fascia. The tumor rarely metastasizes to the axillary lymph nodes.

Abstract
Seventy-eight patients with insuloma diagnosed between 1959 and 1968 in Sweden were studied for neoplasia in other organs. Twenty-one patients had beta-cell islet tumors, 14 Zollinger-Ellison's syndrome and non-beta-cell islet tumors, while no endocrine activity was demonstrated in 43 patients. Of the last-mentioned group, 9 patients had co-existing disease of other endocrine organs. In 10 patients, non-endocrine organs were found to be affected by malignant diseases. It appears probable that the tissue of the pancreatic islets, like parathyroid tissue, can react with hyperplasia with a later development of adenoma, secondary to tumors in other organs.

Abstract
This paper reviews the early and late results of 36 operations for aneurysms of the ascending aorta. Cystic medial necrosis was the predominant cause of aneurysm formation (56%), followed by arteriosclerosis (25%), previous aortotomy (11%) and syphilitic aortitis (8%). Dissection was encountered in 42%. The ascending aorta was replaced by a tubular Darcron graft in 26 patients, whereas 10 underwent aneurysmorrhaphy. Additional procedures were aortic valve replacement (27), resuspension of the aortic commissures (4) and coronary ostial implantation into sinus-shaped composite Dacron graft (4). Hospital mortality (0--18 days) was 8/36 patients (22%), but higher with cystic medial necrosis (30%), dissection (33%), duration of ECC greater than 180 minutes (38%), graft replacement (44%), emergency operation (45%) and heart volume greater than 900 ml/m2 BSA (50%). Late mortality (average 3 years) was 29%, but higher with cystic medial necrosis (33%), following aortic valve replacement (36%) and during anticoagulation (47%). Late cumulative survival (average 3 years) was 47% for the entire series, but only 33% in the presence of cystic medial necrosis. The poor overall prognosis for patients with cystic medial degeneration was closely related to a high incidence of fatal anastomotic complications and late deaths from cerebral haemorrhage during anticoagulation. Radical exclusion of the diseased aortic wall and omission of long-term anticoagulation are therefore desirable in order to lower the mortality rate. Surgery concerns the aneurysm per se, the aortic incompetence and the coronary ostia. The sinus-shaped composite graft with a Björk-Shiley prosthesis at its base appears to be a promising device for such a procedure, which should be performed electively, following early diagnosis in order to prevent dissection and emergency operations.
