These two technical procedures and their results are described. METHODS From 1988 to 2002, we performed 37 SVC resections: 21 replacements with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)(More)
A new method is presented for the closure of a central cylindrical breast exeresis, embracing, full thickness, the skin and the gland. For this reconstruction, performed without altering the original shape of the breast, without removing any additional healthy tissue, we used a skin-gland flap rotated from the inferior quadrant to correct the defect.
A total of 474 histologically proved Lung Cancers (LC) were evaluated by Conventional Radiology (CR) and Computed Tomography (CT) in order to assess the role of these two diagnostic modalities in the staging of LC. In 196/474 LC it was possible also to refer, for the evaluation of the diagnostic reliability, to the surgical control. The CR features of LC(More)
