This study aims to verify the reliability of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurements to differentiate benign from atypical/malignant meningiomas and among different sub-types. Pre-operative DWI of 102 patients (74 females, mean age 58 years, age range 34–85 years) affected by a pathologically proven(More)
Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) is an increasingly recognised cause of post-transplant hypertension. We retrospectively analysed 216 paediatric renal recipients transplanted between 2001 and 2011 to assess TRAS prevalence and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) efficacy. To assess risk factors, we compared children with TRAS with a(More)
It is unclear whether revascularization of renal artery stenosis (RAS) by means of percutaneous renal angioplasty and stenting (PTRAS) is advantageous over optimal medical therapy. Hence, we designed a randomized clinical trial based on an optimized patient selection strategy and hard experimental endpoints. Primary objective of this study is to determine(More)
AIM To report clinical outcomes of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) using drug-eluting beads (DEBs) loaded with doxorubicin for the treatment of unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). PATIENTS AND METHODS We treated 127 patients with doxorubicin via TACE. Inclusion criteria were: diagnosis of unresectable CCA; indication for TACE,(More)
Aim of the study is to assess the reliability and correlation with surgical peritoneal cancer index (PCI) of combined PET/CT and ceCT scans (PET/ceCT) performed in a session in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis candidates for cytoreductive surgery (CS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). We retrospectively analyzed data collected(More)
