A 45-year-old patient with severe obesity, weighing 115 kg, and having BMI (body max index) of 45 kg/m2 was assigned to a protocol to place a Lab-Band in her. An(More)
To investigate the behaviour of the vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) in short bowel syndrome (SBS), an experimental model of massive intestinal resection (MIR) was developed. For this purpose, 20 'minipigs' were divided into two experimental groups: A (control) and B (MIR). The parameters determined were the mean plasma levels of VIP and the degree(More)
AIM We analyzed our experience with a laparoscopic method for the treatment of acute diverticular disease. METHODS Between January 1994 and October 1999 a group of 52 patients who fulfilled the criteria for symptomatic diverticular disease in the descending and sigmoid colon underwent laparoscopy with resection of an average of 40 cm of the bowel.(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is increasingly being used in treating acute appendicitis. New instruments such as the ultrasonically activated scalpel (UAS) have been introduced for most laparoscopic procedures. We evaluated the use of UAS in the performance of LA, as the potential of this instrument in this type of surgery remains to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The experience with treatment of diverticular colon disease (DCD) by the laparoscopic method is analyzed. METHODS Between January 1994 and July 1997, a group of 22 patients with criteria for symptomatic diverticular disease in the descending and sigmoid colon underwent laparoscopy with average resections of 40 cm. Intra-abdominal(More)
