Eighty-one patients with clinical diagnosis of aerobic vaginitis (AV) were included in the study. The patients were randomized for treatment, 45 with kanamycin (100 mg vaginal ovules for 6 days, consecutively) and 36 with meclocycline (35 mg vaginal ovules for 6 days, consecutively). The patients were examined before starting the study, 1-2 days after(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Laparoscopic hepatectomies have seen a worldwide proliferation. Major anatomic resections, which were initially considered unsuitable for laparoscopy, are currently confined to a few centers of expertise. The aim of this study was to discuss the current trends and techniques in laparoscopic major hepatectomy in Europe. METHODS The(More)
Portopulmonary hypertension (PPHTN) is a rare complication in patients with portal hypertension. A role of endothelin 1 (ET-1) and other cytokines was demonstrated in primary pulmonary hypertension but not in PPHTN. We evaluated the possible role of ET-1, interleukin 6 (IL-6), interleukin 1β (IL-1β), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) in the(More)
BACKGROUND The International Ovarian Tumour Analysis (IOTA) group have developed the ADNEX (The Assessment of Different NEoplasias in the adneXa) model to predict the risk that an ovarian mass is benign, borderline, stage I, stages II-IV or metastatic. We aimed to externally validate the ADNEX model in the hands of examiners with varied training and(More)
Ovulation induction with human gonadotropins (hMG or pFSH and hCG) was simultaneously monitored with daily serum 17 beta-estradiol measurements and ultrasound in 38 infertile women. They were subgrouped as follows: A, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (n. 7); B, polycystic ovary syndrome (n. 13); C, non-PCO chronic anovulation (n. 6); D, unexplained infertility(More)
Peritoneal surface malignancy is the expression of a spectrum of disease involving the peritoneum primary or secondary to gastrointestinal and gynecological neoplasms. Even if intraperitoneal therapy has now been demonstrated in multiple randomized trials to improve the outcome of chemotherapy for patients with optimally debulked or small volume ovarian(More)
