BACKGROUND The occurrence of spontaneous tumors in pet animals has been estimated in a few European and North American veterinary cancer registries with dissimilar methodologies and variable reference populations. OBJECTIVES The Animal Tumor Registry (ATR) of Genoa, Italy, was established in 1985 with the aim of estimating the occurrence of spontaneous(More)
Complications correlated with percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and microwave ablation (MWA) of lung tumours were retrospectively reviewed to compare them with data from the literature and to assess risk factors related with the procedures. From January 2003 to January 2009, 29 patients (36 lung lesions) were treated with RFA; from January 2007 to(More)
Extraperitoneal endometriosis is the presence of ectopic, functional endometrium outside the peritoneal cavity, and its occurrence is exceedingly rare. Diagnostic imaging—including ultrasound, duplex ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance imaging—in the preoperative assessment of patients with suspected abdominal wall endometriosis (AWE) is helpful for(More)
The treatment of pain in bone metastases is currently multidisciplinary. Among the various therapies, local radiotherapy is the gold standard for pain palliation from single metastasis, even though the maximum benefit is obtained between 12 and 20 weeks from initiation. In carefully selected patients, several ablation therapies achieve this objective in 4(More)
Lhermitte-Duclos disease is a rare pathologic condition consisting of a dysplastic gangliocytoma of the cerebellum. Its association with phacomatosis and an autosomal dominant neoplastic syndrome, Cowden's syndrome is also known. Modern neuroimaging contributes to a correct diagnosis and pre- and postoperative evaluation. Here we describe the morphologic(More)
The chemical composition of the essential oils of Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum, growing wild in three different localities in the Southern Apennines, was studied by GC-FID and GC/MS analyses. In total, 103 compounds were identified. The oils were mainly composed of phenolic compounds and all oils belonged to the chemotype carvacrol/thymol. The three(More)
The use of flow-diverter (FD) stents in recent years has positively changed the therapeutic approach to some vascular diseases, especially of certain types of aneurysms. This paper describes the case of a young patient after a major head trauma causing multiple skull fractures. The trauma occasioned two pseudoaneurysms from the A1 segment of the right(More)
The pain is the most common problem in patients with bone metastases. It is not related to the characteristics of the tumor (type, location, number or size of metastases). Currently, the bone metastases can be treated with chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, surgery and radiotherapy, but the drugs most used in the treatment of pain are opioids. These drugs give(More)
The consumption of natural aggregates in civil engineering applications can cause severe environmental impacts on a regional scale, depleting the stock of bulk resources within a territory. Several methods can improve the environmental sustainability of the whole aggregates' supply process, including natural and recycled aggregates' productive chains, for(More)
The aim of this study is to explore the possibility of endovascular treatment of internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysm (PSA). These lesions are difficult to treat with a surgical approach, especially if they are located extracranially and close to the skull base. Endovascular stent placement in symptomatic and unstable extracranial internal carotid PSA was(More)
