End-stage renal disease (ESRD) requires for its treatment permanent dialysis or kidney transplantation (KT). KT is the best clinical treatment, however, the early function of the allograft varies depending on multiple factors associated with cold ischemia time (CIT) and the allograft rejection process. It is known that serum creatinine is an insensitive and(More)
Abstract Background and aims. To determine the early biological changes occurring in intestinal ischemia in vivo. Patients and methods. We studied the effects of acute transient intestinal ischemia in 15 patients undergoing elective open surgery for the treatment of abdominal subrenal aortic aneurysm induced by clamping of the aorta at subrenal level and(More)
There is no reliable method to predict the ideal expected function after a kidney transplantation. Herein we have described our experience in the living donor kidney transplant setting, comparing donor and recipient renal function (body surface area adjusted) before the LDKT, and during six months after this procedure. We determined the expected relation(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of two different resistance training programs on lower limb explosive and reactive strength in young female athletes. Fifty seven rhythmic gymnasts were randomly assigned to unspecific resistance training with dumbbells (12 repetition maximum squats) (n = 19; age = 12.0 +/- 1.8 years) or to specific(More)
The increasing understanding of the genetic influences in sport has prompted an association study between the athletic performances and the polymorphisms of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), the α-actinin-3 (ACTN3), and the vitamin D receptor genes. The details of these gene polymorphisms can provide useful information to improve and plan new modern(More)
We present the case of a patient with past medical history of acute mieloblastic leukemia treated with a related, fully match alogenic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). He presented after BMT treatment graft versus host disease (GVHD) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. He also developed end-stage renal disease that required renal replacement therapy.(More)
Chronic injuries of the locomotor apparatus represent the main cause of drop-out among top level gymnasts. The aim of the present paper was to verify whether the postural control, investigated by using an integrated approach and accordingly optimized, could be an effective tool for the secondary prevention of training-related disorders of the locomotor(More)
