BACKGROUND A recent clinical trial showed harmful renal effects with the combined use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARB) in people with diabetes or vascular disease. We examined the benefits and risks of these agents in people with albuminuria and one or more cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS(More)
Microalbuminuria is a strong, consistent and independent risk factor for cardiovascular and renal disease in patients with diabetes and/or hypertension and in the general population. Several randomized trials have shown the efficacy of inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin II(More)
AIMS The aim of this case-control study was to compare quality of life (QoL) and treatment satisfaction in adults with Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) treated with either continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) or multiple daily injections (MDI). METHODS Consecutive patients aged between 18 and 55 years, and attending diabetes clinics for a routine visit,(More)
BACKGROUND The percentage of diabetic patients who do not benefit from the protective effect of aspirin is larger than in other populations at cardiovascular risk. OBJECTIVE We compared the ability of aspirin to suppress TxA2 and platelet activation in vivo, in type-2 diabetics vs. high-risk non-diabetic patients. METHODS Urinary 11-dehydro-TXB2, plasma(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Aim of this study was to identify subgroups of adults with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) treated with Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) at higher risk of poor quality of life (QoL). A sample of consecutive patients completed the Diabetes Specific Quality of Life Scale (DSQOLS), investigating the daily burden and(More)

A case of sudden sensorineural hearing loss following abdominal surgery is reported. In addition, all cases of sudden hearing loss following general surgery found in the literature are re-examined. This analysis indicates that either this pathology is extremely rare (only 15 cases have been reported in the literature, plus the present case) or, more likely,(More)
Personal experience of analgesia-sedation in ESWL is reported, stress being laid on the importance of anxiety treatment by means of premedication with benzodiazepine. In personal experience, this preventive treatment proved very useful in reducing the consumption of opioids and thus in rendering the pain experience of patients undergoing treatment less(More)
