The CIAO Study ("Complicated Intra-Abdominal infection Observational" Study) is a multicenter investigation performed in 68 medical institutions throughout Europe over the course of a 6-month observational period (January-June 2012).Patients with either community-acquired or healthcare-associated complicated intra-abdominal infections (IAIs) were included(More)
Soft tissue sarcomas are a rare group of cancers compromising 1% of all malignancies and there has been a slight increase in incidence. We present 3 cases of soft tissue sarcomas (the tumors were located to the right axilary region, perianal and dorsale face of the left leg) hospitalized in 2nd Surgical Clinic of Emergency Hospital of Craiova and we discuss(More)
Broadband ultrasonic attenuation (BUA) between 0.1 and 0.6 MHz and speed of sound (SOS) were measured on the os calcis in normal women (n = 40), and women who had mild osteoporosis (n = 36). Comparisons were made between the ultrasonic properties and bone mineral densities (BMD) obtained using photon absorptiometry on the lumbar spine, proximal femur and(More)

The lymph node involvement represents an important predictor for survival in colorectal cancer; consequently, the best pathologic evaluation is necessary in order to adequately assess the lymph node status. This study aims to evaluate the impact of sentinel lymph node technique in colorectal cancer in lymphatic basin staging. The study included 43(More)
AIM to choose the proper therapeutical approach in obstructing colorectal cancer. MATERIAL AND METHOD 77 (29.2%) obstructing colorectal cancers, 88.15% aged between 61 and 80 years, selected from 260 patients admitted in the last 10 years were analyzed. We noticed associated cardiovascular (42 cases=55.2%) and/or respiratory (18 cases=23.6%) disease in(More)
This paper emphasizes the diagnosis and therapeutic difficulties in primary retroperitoneal tumors. There were analyzed 68 primary retroperitoneal tumors (1992-2002): 16 (23.5%) benign tumors, 39 (57.35%) malignant tumors and 13 tumors with unknown histological structure. The preoperative diagnosis was clinically suggested and confirmed by ultrasound and CT(More)
Primary varices pathogenesis is still unclear about the trigger event and the disease progression. Throughout time, a lot of hypotheses were created, each with a certain degree of veracity, to explain the aforementioned dilemmas. Present day investigation technologies allowed the undeniable progress in deciphering venous mechanics and biochemistry.(More)
BACKGROUND To validate a new practical Sepsis Severity Score for patients with complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAIs) including the clinical conditions at the admission (severe sepsis/septic shock), the origin of the cIAIs, the delay in source control, the setting of acquisition and any risk factors such as age and immunosuppression. METHODS The(More)
