BACKGROUND Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) was performed in the treatment of great and small saphenous veins (GSVs, SSVs), perforating veins (PVs), and varicose collaterals (VCs). OBJECTIVE To verify the outcome in PVs and VCs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four hundred eighty-two limbs of 306 patients were studied. EVLA was performed on 167 GSVs, 52 SSVs, and(More)
These, after having been separated, centrifugated and implanted on an adapted medium which consists of modified three-dimensional jaluronic acid, develop in vitro an extended layer of tissue (dimensions 100–200 cmq), which then will be grafted separately (after 4 weeks from the biopsy) on the surface of the ulcer. For the correct execution of such procedure(More)
Results Mean age was 65.7 years (± 11.22). Patients were divided into 2 groups: ≤70 years ("young") and >71 years ("elders"). The first group included 177 patients (60.8%), and the second 114 (39.2%). ASA score has been expressed in all the cases: 81.9% of the young patients had ASA 1–2, while 96.5% of the elderly patients had an ASA between 2 and 3 (p <(More)
Materials and methods 535 limbs of 473 patients (62 bilateral) with VVLL were selected by clinical and ultrasound examination. C class of the CEAP classification of every single limb: C from 3 to 6, Ep, As +/p, Pr. Inclusion criteria: superficial venous insufficiency, venous diameters of less than 15 mm. Exclusion criteria: phlebitis, saphenous aneurysms,(More)
Aim of the study Liver metastases from carcinoma of the colon-rectum (CCR) develop in about 50% of patients undergoing resection of primary tumor and about 15–25% of patients had synchronous metastases at presentation. In the absence of surgical treatment, survival 1 year after diagnosis is 30% and is less than 5% at 5 years. The 5-year survival after(More)
