The drought tolerance of three economically important apple cultivars, Golden Delicious, Braeburn and Red Delicious, was analysed. The work offers insights into the hydraulics of these high-yield trees and indicates a possible hydraulic limitation of carbon gain. The hydraulic safety and efficiency of branch xylem and leaves were quantified, drought(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study is to demonstrate further reconstruction of a double-gracilis anorectal neosphincter that had been destroyed because of a severe postoperative perineal infection, with necrosis of the distal part of the muscles. METHOD Each residual gracilis muscle was split longitudinally into two branches, which surrounded the(More)
Despite the tendency toward sphincter-saving surgical procedures, a small proportion of rectal cancers must still be treated by abdominoperineal resection (APR). The physical, psychological and social consequences of a permanent abdominal stoma are a challenge to perform a continent perineal colostomy. Most of the attempts originate from experiences with(More)
The pathologic processes involving the parotid gland area include a vast, heterogeneous group of lesions, consisting of dysembryopathies, traumas, acute and chronic inflammation, degenerative manifestations, benign tumours and both primary and secondary malignancies. This gland, or rather the whole parotid gland area, can be a site of secondary invasion,(More)
Because of the ensuring malformations, most often vascular in nature, malignant tumors of the nasal pyramid often require partial or total exeresis of the nasal structures. These tumors are most commonly basal cell carcinoma (85-90%) and squamous cell carcinoma (7-8%). A recent epidemiological survey performed in Italy showed that, in this country, such(More)
The search of innovative procedures, able to associate the possibility of treating the hemorrhoidal disease with of "mini-invasiveness", is of growing interest. This paper reports the results obtained during our experience in threating the hemorrhoidal disease with Doppler-guided THD (Transanal Hemorroidal Dearterialisation), which is a technique improved(More)
The tumors of the small bowel are uncommon. About one-third are jejunal, for the most part adenocarcinomata. From 1976 to 1994 we operated on 8 patients affected by jejunal adenocarcinoma, mean age 59 years (+/- 15.2), range 37-78, which are 0.33% of all the malignant epithelial neoplasms of the digestive tract, treated in the same period. In six cases the(More)
