Pregnancy in women with chronic kidney disease has always been considered as a challenging event both for the mother and the fetus. Over the years, several improvements have been achieved in the outcome of pregnant chronic renal patients with increasing rates of successful deliveries. To date, evidence suggests that the stage of renal failure is the main(More)
Cytokines, and interleukin-6 in particular, are inflammatory peptide mediators that are extensively studied as regulators of bone tissue homeostasis. They seem to be involved in osteoclast activation and bone resorption and probably play a role in osseointegrated implant rejection. In this study we investigate the ability of titanium implants to cause an(More)
Rhinophyma is a nosographical form that has always attracted attention, even among non-experts, owing to the marked aesthetic damage it often causes. Several types of surgery have been proposed for its treatment in an attempt to elaborate a technique that is easy to apply and guarantees satisfactory results in clinical and aesthetic terms. After a short(More)
The authors report the case of a patient undergoing kidney transplant from a non-related but compatible living donor who subsequently developed a voluminous incisional hernia affecting almost the entire small intestine in the right iliac fossa, the site of earlier surgery. After having analysed the problems involved when a transplant patient requires(More)
The authors propose an alternative which has been proved valid in four cases of peritoneovenous shunt with an occluded Le Veen valve for venous thrombosis implanted in cirrhotic patients with refractory ascites. After having explored the various possibilities using the vessels adjacent to the superior cava branch, the authors resolved the problem of(More)
The authors present the case of a 14-year-old patient suffering from first branchial arch syndrome with agenesia of the auricle in which the auricle was reconstructed using osteointegrated implants. The patient had previously undergone numerous attempts at reconstruction using traditional methods, all of which had failed. In order to ensure an accurate(More)
Limberg-Dufourmentel's cutaneous flap may be used to fill in the loss of residual substance after the radical excision of sinus pilonidalis in the sacrococcygeal region. According to the authors, this technique enables some aspects of the locoregional anatomic conformation typically linked to the onset of this pathology to be modified, as well as permitting(More)
The hemodynamic effects of standard dose of Nitroglycerin (NTG) ointment (23 +/- 4 mg) and oral Isosorbide Dinitrate (ISDN) 10 mg were compared in the treatment of left ventricular failure. Ten patients, 8 males and 2 females (mean age 59 +/- 9 years), affected by acute myocardial infarction (7 cases). Ischemic cardiomyopathy (2 cases) and hypertensive(More)
