Increased intra-abdominal pressure during laparoscopy changes visceral flow. The objective of the present study was to analyze the changes in peripheral and intra-abdominal flow induced by laparoscopic living-donor nephrectomy in an experimental model. Twenty pigs underwent left-sided nephrectomy, 10 at laparoscopy and 10 in an open approach. Renal blood… (More)
A unique case of ossifying pulmonary granulomata is described in which the presence of larvae of Ascaris lumbricoides within the granulomata was demonstrated by means of immunofluorescence.
Measurement of interleukins (IL) and C-reactive protein (CRP) have demonstrated that a laparoscopic approach may induce less surgical stress than an open approach. The potential influence of this observation in living donor nephrectomy has scarcely been analyzed. The aim of the study was to analyze the immunohumoral response induced by laparoscopic versus… (More)
