BACKGROUND We performed bilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomies on four patients (three women and one man) with Cushing's disease (pituitary-dependent Cushing's syndrome) showing persistent hypercortisolism after transsphenoidal surgery. METHODS The technique for bilateral transperitoneal laparoscopic adrenalectomy was derived from the one previously(More)
A laparoscopic approach was used to remove the adrenal gland in 7 patients with aldosterone-producing adenoma (Conn's disease), 2 with corticosteroid-producing adenoma (pituitary-independent Cushing's syndrome) and 2 with pheochromocytoma. The affected gland was on the right side in 3 patients and on the left side in 8. Mean operative time was 3 hours 10(More)
This study was designed to evaluate locoregional anesthesia (double block of sciatic and femoral nerves with ENS) for ambulatory knee arthroscopic surgery. A statistical evaluation was performed in 50 adult outpatients (41 males, 9 females, ASA class 1 or 2) undergoing ambulatory knee arthroscopic procedures. Basal and intraoperative BP, HR SaO2 were(More)
Aluminum laminates are among the main components of beverage packaging. These layered material systems are coupled to paperboard plies except in the cap opening area, where the human force limit sets a requirement on the material properties to allow open-ability and the mechanical characteristics are of particular interest. Experimental investigations have(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficiency, during general anaesthesia, of four commercially available HMEs, with particular attention to the change of performances due to the new modifications introduced by the manufacturers. DESIGN Comparisons of the performances of each HMEs with psychometric method in terms of T degree C, RH (%), AH (mgH2O/1) of inhaled(More)
