The effectiveness of doxycycline treatment in Cp-negative OAL has not been tested. METHODS In a prospective trial, 27(More)
BACKGROUND A pathogenic link between hepatitis C virus (HCV) and MALT-type lymphomas has been suggested. However, studies assessing the role of HCV infection separately in different forms of MALT lymphomas are not available. PATIENTS AND METHODS The prevalence and clinical implications of HCV seropositivity were analyzed in 55 patients with ocular adnexa(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence and the clinical impact of gastric Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection, as well as its possible correlation with Chlamydia psittaci (Cps) infection and the lymphoma regression rate produced by Hp eradicating antibiotic therapy were investigated in patients with MALT-type lymphoma of the ocular adnexa (OAL). METHODS During staging,(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative hepatic failure is a dreadful complication after major hepatectomy and carries high morbidity and mortality rates. In this study, we assessed the accuracy of the 50/50 criteria (bilirubin >2.9 mg/dL and international normalized ratio >1.7 on postoperative day 5) and the Mullen criteria (bilirubin peak >7 mg/dL on postoperative days(More)

More frequently, Achilles tendon ruptures are acute and treated with tendon sutures.1 Many surgical techniques are available to treat chronic lesions such as sutures or V-Y elongation with or without augments.2-3 Our(More)
