We describe our preliminary experience with the vertebral body stenting system (VBS) for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fracture or traumatic vertebral fracture showing our clinical results at 12 months follow-up. Twenty patients (16 women, four men, mean age 71 years): four with traumatic vertebral fracture (Magerl A1 fractures) and 16 with(More)
AIM To evaluate whether the histology and grading of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) correlated with the results of dynamic multiphase multidetector CT (MDCT) and the [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose standardised uptake value (SUV) in 30 patients. METHODS Chest x-rays of 270 patients with incidentally detected SPNs were retrospectively evaluated. Thirty(More)
We describe the usefulness of endovascular and direct percutaneous treatment as a therapy option for aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) of the spine. From January 2007 to December 2008, we treated six consecutive patients with symptomatic ABCs resistant to continuous medical management or with acute clinical onset of paraparesis at cervical, thoracic and lumbar(More)
BACKGROUND Personalized cancer therapy remains a challenge. In this context, we attempted to identify correlations between tumour angiogenesis, tumour metabolism and tumour cell type. To this aim, we used single=phase multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and hybrid positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) to determine whether net(More)

This paper provides a long-term review of 38 elderly patients with fracture of the neck of the femur. They had been discharged well and ambulant after application of Thompson's intra-articular prosthesis. Death supervened in 5 within an interval of 3-6 years after the operation. Twenty-six complained of pain in the joint. Another three had reduced mobility(More)
The authors report their experience on the use of 111In-DTPA-octreotide scintigraphy in the diagnosis of neuroendocrine carcinomas of the lung. The studies were performed both preoperatively, to obtain a correct staging of the tumor, or postoperatively, because of the suspicion of a recurrence or distant metastases. The main findings were: high sensitivity(More)
