Common bile duct (CBD) stones are found in 10% of patients who undergo elective laparoscopic surgery for gallstone disease and in 10–20% of patients who present with acute cholecystitis (AC). For the latter, the role of laparoscopic transcystic exploration of the common duct (LTCE) as part of a single-stage procedure is still unknown. This study, based on a(More)
AIMS Essential hypertension, as well as other established cardiovascular risk factors, is associated with endothelial dysfunction. Hypertensive patients with a nondipper circadian pattern have a greater risk of cerebrovascular and cardiovascular complications in comparison with those with a dipper circadian pattern. In this study, we evaluated the(More)
Gallbladder volvulus is a rare condition which can mimic an acute cholecystitis. This condition is characterized from a rotation of the gallbladder on its mesentery along the axis of the cystic duct and cystic artery. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult. This is an acute surgical emergency that must be treated with immediate detorsion and cholecystectomy.(More)
Cuffed tunneled venous access catheters are commonly used for temporary and permanent access in hemodialysis (HD) patients. These catheters serve an essential role in providing permanent access in subjects in whom all other access options have been exhausted. The predominant complications are catheter thrombosis, catheter fibrin sheating and infection. The(More)
Previous studies comparing urea kinetic model (UKM) and direct dialysate quantification technique (DDQ) found statistically different results as far as the urea distribution volume (V) and protein catabolic rate (PCR) are concerned. In these studies, however, the true values for both the dialyser urea clearance (K) and urea concentration (C) were not used.(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic appendicectomy (LA) rapresents a standard but questionable approach in the treatment of acute appendicitis. The scope of this study is to show our experience using different methods in the mesoappendix and appendix stump treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of all patient with acute appendicitis that underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Temporary abdominal closure with planned re-operations is a treatment method for several critical abdominal conditions. Aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of laparostomy and the risk factors for survival in patients presenting with severe secondary peritonitis (SSP). METHODS 52 patients (mean age 66.5) with a SSP were analyzed.(More)
