Intraperitoneal bile collection following laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been reported to occur in 0.2-2% of cases and appears to be slightly higher than when the open technique is used. When the injuries of the common bile duct, technical problems with the cystic duct, diathermic injuries to the biliary tree, and iatrogenic interruption of congenital(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the value of several factors to predict the risk of progression to high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN) in a cohort of HIV-infected MSM. DESIGN Longitudinal study of 556 HIV-infected MSM who underwent screening for anal dysplasia (include anal cytology and high-resolution anoscopy at each visit). METHODS Progression rate(More)
INTRODUCTION Several circulating metabolites derived from bacterial protein fermentation have been found to be inversely associated with renal function but the timing and disease severity is unclear. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between indoxyl-sulfate, p-cresyl-sulfate, phenylacetylglutamine and gut-microbial profiles in early renal(More)
Vitamin D deficiency is an important problem in patients with chronic conditions including those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to identify the prevalence and factors associated with vitamin D deficiency and hyperparathyroidism in HIV patients attended in Barcelona. Cholecalciferol (25OH vitamin(More)
Dropped bile and gallstones after accidental perforation of the biliary gallbladder is a frequent event during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and is generally of no clinical importance. However, calculi left in the abdominal cavity can produce a series of severe late complications. We present a patient with retroperitoneal actinomycosis produced by dropped(More)
BACKGROUND Lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) monotherapy is used in selected virologically suppressed HIV-infected patients. Some would prefer a once-daily (OD) dose instead of the usual twice-daily dose to favour adherence. However, trough concentrations of the drug in blood and particularly in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may not be adequate to maintain viral(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess risk factors of high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN) recurrence in a cohort of HIV-infected MSM. DESIGN AND METHODS Consecutive HIV-infected 100 MSM with a history of successfully treated intra-anal HGAIN with electrocautery were followed with anal cytology, human papillomavirus (HPV) determination, and high-resolution(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) determination and the cotesting HPV and anal cytology value to detect high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN) in a cohort of HIV-MSM. DESIGN AND METHODS Prospective study of HIV-infected MSM who underwent screening for anal dysplasia. Screening program includes anal cytology, HPV(More)
