Following the experience of cardiac surgeons with homografts in the treatment of infective aortic valve endocarditis, cardiovascular surgeons have investigated in situ revascularization by means of homografts in the management of vascular prosthetic graft infections. Preliminary results are encouraging, but their late fate in long-term follow-up and the(More)
In a phase-III multicenter clinical trial, the color Doppler vascular patterns were studied of 34 liver metastases in 18 patients before and after the i.v. injection of SH U 508 A (Levovist), with different US units and probes. The patients were selected as having poor color Doppler signals at unenhanced examinations. Lesion size ranged .8 to 9 cm (mean:(More)
The effects of lead on porphyrin metabolism and peripheral nervous system were studied in a group of 38 subjects who had not been exposed for a period of time, ranging from 3 to 27 years. The mean values for blood lead (PbB), chelated lead(PbUEDTA), and free erythrocyte protoporphyrin (FEP) were found to be significantly higher in the subjects with past(More)
The synthesis of a series of halogenated 1-benzylindazole-3-carboxylic acids and related derivatives is described. These compounds were studied for their effect on testicular weight and on the inhibition of spermatogenesis. Many of the derivatives, but in particular 1-(2,4-dichlorobenzyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxylic acid (11),(More)
The authors report on their experience with color Doppler sonography in the diagnosis of solid breast masses. Twenty-two patients were examined; breast masses were studied with B-mode US first, and then with color Doppler US to evaluate eventual tumor vascularization. Color Doppler US demonstrated only one vascular pole in histologically confirmed benign(More)
Two groups of viscose rayon production workers were examined 10 years after discontinuation of exposure to CS2. Group A comprised 20 subjects exposed to high CS2 concentrations and group B 13 subjects with lower exposure. Clinical findings and the measurements of nerve conduction velocity of the slow fibres in the peripheral nerves were evaluated. Twelve(More)
Risk factors for varicose disease before and during pregnancy have been analyzed by use of data from a survey on venous disease in pregnancy conducted in 611 women (mean age thirty years, range fifteen to forty-seven) who consecutively delivered at the Obstetric-Gynecologic Clinic "L. Mangiagalli" of Milan between January and April, 1989. In total, 137(More)
