Using breath hydrogen analysis after an oral lactose load (2 g/kg; maximum 50 g), we investigated the prevalence of lactose malabsorption in 61 healthy Italian children aged 6-13 years. We also examined the relationship between symptoms and small bowel transit time and the degree of sugar malabsorption. Three of 61 subjects produced no H2 after both lactose(More)

There are few cases reported of replantation of the lower extremities rather than amputation surgery. This work describes a case of partial amputation of the right ankle. (More)

Despite the good results reported in the literature, this technique has been gradually replaced over the years by others considered more modern and actual, such as wrist arthroplasty and(More)
The original Burton-Pellegrini technique used to treat trapeziometacarpal joint osteoarthritis suggests the use of half of the flexor carpi radialis (FCR) width to reconstruct the ligament and perform the tendon interposition arthroplasty. In our study, unlike the original technique, we used the full thickness of the FCR and evaluated a sample of 100 thumbs(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK Displaced acetabular fractures are complex lesions which may cause severe consequences if not appropriately treated. The results are linked to the quality of the articular reduction. Anatomical reduction, through surgical treatment with rigid internal fixation, should be considered to obtain an early mobilization, reduce long(More)
The Essex-Lopresti lesion, or radioulnar longitudinal dissociation, results from an axial load to the forearm with lesion to the radial head, interosseous membrane and distal radioulnar joint. The lesion is rarely diagnosed early, therefore treatment is often subacute or chronic. In these cases, procedures such as radial head replacement, ulnar shortening(More)
