Rupture of the pericardium due to closed thoracic trauma is a very rare event which is hard to diagnose. It occurs in the form of two main clinical pictures: 1) severe chest trauma with massive haematoma requiring surgery and which permits diagnosis, and 2) precordial pain and clinical signs of pericardiac origin. Surgery is essential in view of the risk of… (More)
The usefulness of endoscopic examination of patients subjected to vagotomy and drainage for duodenal ulcer is stressed, since it permits recurrences and ineffective treatment to be detected, along with the control of other parameters, such as the appearance of the mucosa, the performance of gastric drainage, the features of peristalsis and gastric tone, and… (More)
A case of hernia-induced occlusion of the small intestine through an orifice of the broad ligament of the uterus is reported. After reviewing the literature, the pathogenetic aspects are considered, with reference to the congenital or acquired origin of the defect. Clinically, the most significant factors for diagnosis are the patient's multipara condition,… (More)
Personal experience in cases of benign tumour of the stomach is presented. Diagnosis cannot be based on the clinical evidence alone, but must be supported by radiological examination and, more particularly, by endoscopic biopsy. Endoscopic resection and continuous follow-up examinations provide an alternative to radical surgery and gastrotomic resection.
An original technique for the repair of recurrent inguinocrural hernia destruction of the inguinal ligament is presented. A prosthetic lamina is applied in the subperitoneal space against the deep fascia of the inguinocrural musculature. It is held in place by intra-abdominal pressure and ordinary stitches. The subumbilical median route is used and the… (More)

It is felt that ligation of the vessel constitutes the treatment of choice, whereas hepatic resection should be undertaken in the case of very peripheral aneurysms.
