The formation of biliary sludge and cholelithiasis after ceftriaxone administration is not uncommon. Prompt resolution of sludge has been demonstrated with discontinuation of the drug. Despite this, cholecystectomy has been performed in symptomatic patients. Ceftriaxone is popular drug in pediatrics, but the complication is not widely appreciated in the(More)
The role and utility of equilibrium radionuclide angiocardiography was estimated in non-invasive diagnosis of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). In 26 healthy subjects the average value of Right Ventricular Ejection Fraction (RVEF) was 54.8 +/- 7.2, versus 40.89 +/- 7.85 in 37 patients with COPD. Right heart catheterization was(More)
A new renal imaging agent, 99mTc mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3), has been recently proposed in the nuclear medicine evaluation of renal function. Just like 131 orthoiodohippurate (OIH), 99mTc MAG3 is removed mainly by the renal tubules. An heterogeneous group of 39 patients underwent a radioisotopic study with the simultaneous injection of OIH (131I) and(More)
Data relative to 51 patients operated for breast carcinoma were retrospectively reviewed. All patients had undergone US and mammographic evaluation of max diameter of the neoplastic nodule. The above data were correlated with pathologic measurements of the surgical specimens. US-pathologic correlation coefficient was extremely high (r = 0.94). US proved(More)
Five patients presenting with migraine attacks underwent Electroencephalography (EEC), Computed Tomography (CT) and Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT) with 99mTc-HM PAO. EEG and SPECT were subsequently repeated in the intercritical period. We observed that: two patients only showed non-specific abnormalities in EEG; scans were normal in all patients;(More)
The demonstration of metastatic involvement of neck nodes is a crucial step in the staging of patients with head and neck tumors. Diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of US in the detection of lymph node metastases were evaluated in 48 patients with this type of malignancy. The patients subsequently underwent surgical node dissection.(More)
