Since 1964, we have reported twenty-five cases of glomus tumors. Given the evolution of modern surgical technique, we have divided our cases into two groups. The first group includes patients seen from 1964 to 1975: sixteen cases, of whom eleven underwent successful radiotherapy, with a follow-up after ten years. Since 1975 we have adhered to the following(More)
To evaluate a possible brainstem role in pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, a study on brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP), has been conducted. 15 OSAS patients, medium and severe form, with organic pathologies of the upper respiratory tract have been evaluated. 15 normal subjects were compared as control. All the patients were(More)
Myxedema coma is a rare, often fatal endocrine emergency that concerns elderly patients with long-standing primary hypothyroidism; myxedema coma of central origin is exceedingly rare.

Hydatidosis is a zoonosis caused by the ingestion of Echinococcus granulosus eggs, released though the feces, from infected dogs to humans. Primary localization is mostly hepatic and/or pulmonary, whereas muscular involvement is very rare, even more so in muscular striated tissue. This is the report of a case of a primary intramuscular hydatid cyst in a(More)
We have assessed the different adhesive properties of some of the most common bacteria associated with periprosthetic joint infection on various types of ultra high molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). Quantitative in vitro analysis of the adhesion of biofilm producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli to physically and chemically(More)
The aim of this study, which was carried out because of the importance of eating disorders (EDs) acquired by the young and the need to organise resources and interventions for patients and their families, was to quantify the increased incidence of EDs arising early in life in order to identify the nosographic classification that best reflects the complexity(More)
In order to clarify pathogenesis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) in patients with anatomic abnormalities of upper airways, we studied soft palate and uvula of OSAS patients by means of histological and ultrastructural techniques. 38 OSAS patients, severe and moderately severe form, underwent modified Palatopharingoplasty. We evaluated only 16(More)
