BACKGROUND One of the complications of lymphoedema is recurrent cellulitis. The aim was to determine whether lymphaticovenous anastomosis (LVA) was effective at reducing cellulitis in patients with lymphoedema. METHODS This was a retrospective review of patients with arm/leg lymphoedema who underwent LVA. The frequency of cellulitis was compared before(More)
Cardiovascular changes resulting from continuous distending alveolar pressure during endotracheal intubation (CPAP) and continuous negative pressure (CNP) were studied in two groups of healthy newborn lambs at 6 and 11 mm Hg and -6 and -11 mm Hg, respectively. Heart rate, left ventricular pressure, and arterial blood gases were unchanged in each group.(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphoedema can be treated conservatively or surgically. Early treatment is important, but the surgical indication and the effect of surgery on pain in lymphoedema-affected limbs have not been described. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of low-invasive scarless lymphatic venous anastomosis (LVA) for early or latent(More)
Cocaine blocks the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine of the sympathetic nervous system. It has a psychomotor stimulating effect that provokes euphoria, motor activity and an amplification of a well being sensation similar to the effect of amphetamines. Well known are the systemic effects of cocaine abuse (acute myocardial infarction, cardiac(More)
OBJECTIVE Aim of this study is to evaluate the possibility of limb magnetic resonance lymphography (MRL) to differentiate lymphatic vessels from pathological veins, collect a specimen of the identified lymphatic vessel during operations of super microsurgical lymphatic-venular anastomosis (s-LVA) and perform immunohistochemical stainings to confirm the(More)
Blow-out fractures usually involve the orbit in the floor or in the medial wall. Anyway, if the roof of the orbit is thin and direct compressive or buckling forces impact the orbit the fracture can involve the upper roof. We describe the case of a blow-out fracture of the orbital roof with enophtalmus and cerebrospinal fluid leak from lacero-contusive(More)
In this article, the authors report their management with minimally invasive surgery of a bulky capillary hemangioma in the parapharyngeal space. Parapharyngeal space capillary hemangioma is a rare tumor in adults. Because of its rarity and difficulty to treat, we suggest a multidisciplinary approach in choosing the best treatment, with an accurate(More)
