OBJECTIVE To evaluate the oxidative state in patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy type 1 (FAP1). DESIGN From 3 unrelated families, patients with FAP1 carrying a transthyretin Met-30 mutation were studied. The diagnosis was confirmed by genetic analysis. Eleven of 21 patients carried the mutation; all were symptomatic and were clinically(More)
Variant forms and post-translational modifications of transthyretin (TTR) can be identified by electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). The aim of the present study was to investigate thiol conjugation of transthyretin and it's relation to age and symptomatic amyloid disease in different populations of variant TTR carriers. Plasma samples from 70(More)
FAP is an autosomal dominant inherited disease, characterized by systemic deposition of amyloid fibrils in various tissues. The purpose of this study is to describe the gross and microscopic findings of the explanted livers for FAP.10 patients were transplanted for FAP at our institution. Diagnosis was supported by positive familiar history, clinical data(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical treatment of gallbladder cancer is still controversial. The extent of the radical surgery and its therapeutic efficacy continue to be debated. OBJECTIVE Analyze the efficacy of radical resection in patients with incidental gallbladder cancer evaluating the presence of residual disease in the resection specimen and analyzing the(More)
OBJECTIVES In patients diagnosed with incidental gallbladder cancer (GC), the benefit and optimal extent of further surgery remain unclear. The aims of this study were to analyse outcomes in patients who underwent liver resection following a diagnosis of incidental GC and to determine factors associated with longterm survival. METHODS A retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND Caroli's disease (CD) is a benign congenital disorder characterized by segmental cystic dilatation of the intrahepatic biliary ducts.

In July 2005, Argentina became the first country after the United States to introduce the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) for organ allocation. In this study, we investigated waiting-list (WL) outcomes (n = 3272) and post-liver transplantation (LT) survival in 2 consecutive periods of 5 years before and after the implementation of a MELD-based(More)
