Using the determination of specific IgE, we studied the seroprevalence against A. simplex s.l. in blood donors selected at random in the region of Antequera (Southern Spain). We detected 22.1%. The immunoblotting technique revealed a(More)

OBJECTIVE In the medical literature, thoracic disc protrusion has traditionally been considered a rare occurrence. We hypothesise that the incidence of such protrusions and their abdominal symptoms is higher than is generally believed and that their presence may account for a significant proportion of chronic non-visceral abdominal pains. Accordingly, the(More)
Massive hernias of the abdominal wall present a major challenge to the general surgeon. In some extreme cases of patients with severe cardio-respiratory disease, the repair of such hernias may be impracticable. In these cases, we believe the volume transposition technique is appropriate. In this approach, the hernia volume is calculated and the wall(More)

This study seeks to demonstrate cholecystoduodenal fistula is not a contraindication for laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and it can be performed without a higher risk for the patient.

The aim of the present study is to conduct a detailed review of the symptoms, both inguinal and otherwise, of patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION The incidence of perianal fistulas is high, and this condition has a profoundly negative impact on patients' quality of life. The problem is greater when the fistula tract is high because treatment is necessarily complex (limited surgery may lead to recurrence, while aggressive surgery is associated with higher rates of faecal incontinence).
