BACKGROUND The microbiological quality of treated water is a very important issue in hemodialysis (HD) centers. Water treatment may have a dramatic effect on microbial contamination because of bacterial colonisation of the different parts of the system such as storage tanks, softeners or deionisers. Therefore, HD centers must have stringent quality(More)
Robotic liver resection is a new promising minimally invasive surgical technique not yet validated by level I evidence. During recent years, the application of the laparoscopic approach to liver resection has grown less than other abdominal specialties due to the intrinsic limitations of laparoscopic instruments. Robotics can overcome these limitations(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of disease pattern and involvement of the margins on early and late results of enteric resections with hand-sewn anastomosis for Crohns disease. BACKGROUND Bowel sparing is one of the aims of the surgery for CD. When strictureplasties are not possible, "minimal surgery" (the resection just of the grossly involved tract of(More)
43 patients with metastatic colorectal Cancer pretreated with 5-fluorouracil-based chemotherapy received vinorelbine plus 5-fluorouracil plus folinic acid with the aim of evaluating vinorelbine activity in advanced colorectal cancer and its potential synergism with commonly used drugs. 9 partial responses were observed, for an;overall objective response(More)
Hyperbilirubinemia often accompanies liver failure; therefore, artificial liver support devices are currently used as a bridge to more definitive treatments to eliminate water-soluble and albumin-bound toxins. We report 2 patients, of which, after liver transplantation, the first experienced early allograft dysfunction and the other hyperbilirubinemia(More)
Although survival after liver transplantation (LT) has progressively improved over the last years, an increased prevalence of clinically relevant infections in LT patients is well documented. In particular, the spread of infections sustained by extensively drug-resistant bacteria (XDR) produced an increase in the incidence of wound infections.(More)
INTRODUCTION "Sent livers" (SL) (interregional allocated organs) are considered extended donor criteria grafts. These grafts influence post-transplant outcome. In our donor allocation program, the number of allocated SLs is increasing. The aim of our study is to provide data supporting the possibility to enlarge the use of SLs through adequate(More)
