A prospective study of choledocholithiasis was performed using 110 patients with presumptive diagnoses of acute gallstone pancreatitis. The incidence of migrating and persistent bile duct stones was determined using stool screening and intraoperative cholangiography, and the clinical significance of continued stone obstruction of the papilla was(More)
Stool screening for gallstones and ultrasound monitoring of diameter changes of the biliary and pancreatic duct were performed in 129 patients with choledocholithiasis. Gallstone migration was found in 44 patients, all of whom were operated on electively. At surgery, acute pancreatic lesions were found in 16 patients; in the remaining 28 there was no(More)
We describe the case of a young woman with long-lasting topographical disorientation following a haemorrhagic lesion of the right temporo-occipital region involving the hippocampus. She was unable to orient herself in novel environments and to perform learning spatial tasks both in real-world settings and laboratory conditions. Her ability to recall and(More)
Due to their interactivity and to the sense of presence they afford, virtual environments constitute an interesting opportunity to study spatial cognition. In accordance with this perspective, we aimed to introduce a spatial test in virtual simulation in order to investigate the survey spatial ability in patients with topographical disorientation. To do(More)
