AIM Laparoscopic gastrectomy is becoming a minimally invasive procedure widely accepted by laparoscopic surgeons; yet, many doubts remain about its oncologic efficacy in treating malignant neoplasia. Aim of this study was to analyze our experience comparing completely laparoscopic total gastrectomy to its laparotomic counterpart, about safety, efficacy and(More)
AIM Since 1990 when it was firstly performed, radical laparoscopic nephrectomy has gained wide popularity because of its less morbidity and adequate oncologic outcome. The aim of this study was to report our experience about oncologic 5-year outcome of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. METHODS Fifteen patients were treated laparoscopically and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate, in parallel to clinical and histological modifications, the expression of specific proteins involved in different extraoral autologous bone grafts integration in humans. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients needing oral rehabilitation of posterior maxilla, with inadequate bone volume for implant placement,(More)
INTRODUCTION Total mesorectal excision (TME) is the cornerstone of a correct surgical therapy for extraperitoneal rectal cancer. Aim of the study is to evaluate our 5 years experience confronting retrospectively laparoscopic (lap) TME in respect to its laparotomic (open) counterpart. PATIENTS AND METHODS 30 patients were treated laparoscopically for stage(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze histologic and immunohistochemical modifications taking place in maxillary sites reconstructed by iliac crest bone grafts, 4 months (T1) and 10 years (T2) after grafting, in comparison to native iliac crest bone (T0).By light microscopy, T1 samples showed well-organized osteoblasts and extracellular matrix (ECM), and(More)
Surgical resection is still the first therapeutic option in patients with resectable colorectal cancer metastatic to the liver. Application of radiofrequency energy has been used in patients who did not meet the criteria for resectability and yet were candidates for a liver-directed procedure based upon the presence of liver-only disease. Hepatic resection(More)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate macroscopic and microscopic appearance of a new implant design, with particular emphasis given to the type of prosthesis connection. Two dental implants of the same type (Torque Type(®), WinSix(®), BioSAFin. S.r.l. - Ancona, Italy), with sandblasted and acid etched surfaces (Micro Rough Surface(®)), but differing(More)
