To elucidate possible causes of recurrences after transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), we performed an anatomical study of the prostate in 37 cadavers. The anatomical study showed that a significant proportion of the prostatic adenoma laid below the verumontanum. This proportion in relation to the total prostatic length varied from 8.33 to(More)
Background: Acute hyperglycemia has been associated with delayed gastric emptying of solid foods in healthy control subjects. Erythromycin has been found to be a gastrointestinal prokinetic agent in humans. We examined whether acute steady-state hyperglycemia reduces the erythromycin-induced acceleration of gastric emptying of a solid meal after a fasted(More)
We report a midazolam-related death that occurred during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). The acute intoxication due to midazolam overdose was confirmed by high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis of the blood samples taken from the patient in the intensive care unit (2.8 microg/ml) and postmortem (2.4 microg/ml). The case(More)
Urinary bladder (extra-adrenal) pheochromocytoma is a catecholamine-producing tumor that arises from chromaffin cells in the extra-adrenal paraganglion system of the urinary bladder. The symptoms and signs result from the release of epinephrine and/or non-epinephrine, which is more prominent during micturition. The most serious consequences of the disease(More)
Two cases of severe fenthion intoxication are presented.

Subsequent postmortem toxicological analysis confirmed heavy amitriptyline acute intoxication. The victim had serious psychological problems, was under long-term treatment with antidepressants and was a systematic(More)
Right ventricular cardiomyopathy dysplasia, now a well-established clinical and morphologic entity, was first reported in the medical literature in 1982. The cases of sudden death of two young men are here reported, with macroscopic and histologic findings. The anatomical explanation of such death was a fibrotic, lipomatous, or fibrolipomatous replacement(More)
In the present study samples of cannabis plants presented to us by the Drug Enforcement Units were characterised, based on the analysis of active substances. The fresh samples were dried in a dark room were they were kept until analysis. The samples included leaves, flowers roots and trunks. The analysis was performed by High Performance Liquid(More)
