This study was designed to identify which are the best preoperative inflammation-based prognostic scores in terms of overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with gastric cancer. Between January 2004 and January 2013, 102 consecutive patients underwent resection for gastric cancer at S. Andrea Hospital, "La Sapienza", University of(More)
The relationship between the width of surgical margins and local and distant recurrence of colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) remain controversial. We analyzed the impact of surgical margins in laparoscopic liver resections (LLR) for CRLM, using the parenchymal-sparing approach on overall (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS). From January 2005 to October(More)
Adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (A2ALDLT) is an accepted mode of treatment for end-stage liver disease. Right-lobe grafts have usually been preferred in view of the higher graft volume, which lowers the risk of a small-for-size syndrome. However, donor left hepatectomy is associated with less morbidity than when it is compared to right(More)
Abdominal trauma is present in 7-10% of all trauma victims, and in cases of severe trauma is often found together with orthopedic, thoracic or central nervous system (CNS) injuries. The aim of the present study was to perform a comparative analysis of abdominal trauma and trauma involving other body regions, evaluating the prognostic significance of(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the single-surgeon learning curve (SSLC) in laparoscopic liver surgery over an 11-year period with risk-adjusted (RA) cumulative sum control chart analysis.Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) is a challenging and highly demanding procedure. No specific data are available for defining the feasibility and reproducibility of(More)
Laparoscopy was suggested as gold standard for left lateral sectionectomy (LLS), thanks to recognized benefits compared to open approach. Aim of this study was to define learning curve (LC) of laparoscopic LLS (LLLS) using operative time (OT) as tool to analyze outcome of procedures performed by four experienced surgeons. Reproducibility and safety of LC in(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to compare the perioperative and oncological outcomes of laparoscopic and open liver resection for colorectal liver metastases in the elderly. BACKGROUND Laparoscopic liver resection has been associated with less morbidity and similar oncological outcomes to open liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs). It has(More)
The purpose of this study is to verify the usefulness of a multidisciplinary Trauma Registry in the evaluation of trauma, particularly in relation to the number of specialists involved, and to analyze the effective role of the general trauma surgeon in an integrated trauma care system. The present study was performed by analyzing data from the Trauma(More)
Living donor liver transplantation is a valid alternative to deceased donor liver transplantation, and its safety and feasibility have been well determined. Minimally invasive living donor hepatectomy (MILDH) has taken some time to be accepted because of inherent technical difficulties and the highly demanding surgical skills needed to perform the(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the prognostic significance of thoracic and abdominal trauma in severely injured patients. A retrospective analysis was performed based on data from the period from March 1 2006 to December 31 2007, taken from the Trauma Registry of the University Hospital "SantAndrea" in Rome. A total of 844 trauma patients were(More)
