This retrospective study compares recurrence and postoperative complication rates after isthmo-lobectomy and subtotal thyroidectomy (group I) vs near-total and total thyroidectomy (group II) for benign thyroid disease. Seven hundred and forty-three patients were operated on for thyroid diseases over the period from 1977 to 1998. We considered 202 patients(More)
Severe bleeding may complicate the course of either acute or chronic pancreatitis, the latter being more frequently involved. Pseudocysts, severe inflammation, regional necrosis and infection may cause major vessel erosion with or without pseudoaneurysm formation which eventually may result in severe bleeding into the gastrointestinal tract, retroperitoneum(More)
PURPOSE Plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPases (PMCAs) are integral membrane proteins essential to the control of intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) concentration. Four genes encode PMCA proteins termed PMCA1-PMCA4. Little is known about the expression of these isoforms in corneal epithelium (CE). The purpose of this investigation is to characterize the expression and(More)
Plasma membrane calcium-ATPases (PMCAs) play a critical role in regulating intracellular calcium concentration. Four genes encode PMCA proteins with alternative splicing of transcripts at three sites (A, B and C) serving to increase isoform diversity. Our previous work shows that all four PMCAs are expressed and have specific locations in human corneal(More)
This article describes a paradigm of teaching in the anatomy laboratory where students interact with the families of the deceased persons whom they are dissecting. This approach focuses learning anatomy and medicine on the patient via the implementation of five guiding principles: the First Patient; Knowledge; Reflection and Reflective Practice; Treating(More)
Hyperostosis frontalis interna (HFI) is a condition that involves thickening of the inner surface of the frontal bone with sparing of the midline. Little is known about the etiology and clinical presentation of HFI. We report unusual findings in a woman with extensive Type D hyperostosis of the frontal bone and a large hyperostotic nodule in the parietal(More)
The authors herein show their own experience in the treatment of acute biliary pancreatitis. Aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and the safety of the "early" laparoscopic approach to the mild to moderate acute biliary pancreatitis. The authors studied sixty cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy with intraoperative colangiography for acute(More)
