The A.A. present a case report of retroperitoneal spontaneous hematoma and put in evidence the difficulties in making an etiopathogenetic diagnosis of spontaneous renal cyst rupture. The patient was a 72 years old man admitted to the hospital in emergency for a painful ipogastric syntomatology and biliary vomit. The ecography showed a distanced gallbladder(More)
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is currently the gold standard for surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. The aim of this study was to present our experience with this procedure at 1 year of follow-up. Forty patients were operated on between January 2006 and July 2007, and 30 underwent a 24-hour postoperative pH-metry study. Ninety-two(More)
BACKGROUND Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has emerged as one of the most common diseases in the modern civilization.The immense success of laparoscopic surgery as an effective treatment of GERD has established the minimally invasive surgery as the gold standard for this condition with lower morbidity and mortality, shorter hospital stay, faster(More)
The pattern and sites of recurrence were studied in 270 patients with resected Stage I (NO) or Stage II (Nl) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Survival, incidence, and type of intrathoracic locoregional recurrence versus distant extra-thoracic recurrence after surgical excision were analyzed. Prognostic parameters, such as postsurgical stage, histologic(More)
Currently, bronchopleural fistulas present a decreasing complication rate in thoracic surgery, especially since surgical management of tubercular infections is no longer needed. The introduction of non-reacting suture materials and the technological advances have also lowered the incidence of such complication. Although fistulas tend to be chronic, their(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated Quality of Life (QoL) and Johnsson & DeMeester score of patients after Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2007 to June 2008, 43 patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux underwent laparoscopic Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication; 7 were lost during the follow-up. Patients underwent endoscopy,(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastroesphageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common condition in the general population, affecting patients' quality of life and predisposing to Barrett's esophagus and its most fearsome complication, esophageal adenocarcinoma. The aim of this study is to compare objective and subjective outcomes of laparoscopic Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication(More)
Spontaneous subcapsular splenic hematoma formation without rupture in infectious mononucleosis is a very unusual occurrence. A conservative management is successful in those patients in stable condition. We describe the presentation and the clinical progress of a case in whom a sudden enlargement in hematoma's diameter needed a splenectomy to avoid the risk(More)
