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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND 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. METHODS Between January 2004 and January 2013, 102 consecutive patients underwent resection for gastric cancer at S. Andrea Hospital, "La(More)
BACKGROUND 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). METHODS From(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)
Aging is often considered a risk factor for silent ischemic cardiopathy. Using endermic electric stimuli, we assessed the course of pain threshold and pain tolerance in 23 male subjects affected by silent myocardial ischaemia, and in 20 male subjects with symptomatic cardiopathy; we also attempted to define the role played by age. Values of pain threshold(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)
PURPOSE Improved survival after liver resection for breast cancer liver metastases (BCLM) has been proven; however, there is still controversy on predictive factors influencing outcomes. The analysis of factors related to primary and metastatic cancer eventually influencing long-term outcomes and a review of the literature are presented in this report. (More)
PURPOSE Recent studies have reported that margins alone do not predict survival in patients with a positive chemotherapy response. The aim of this retrospective study is to analyze the surgical and oncological outcomes of patients who underwent chemotherapy and liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) with lesions detached from the main(More)
