BACKGROUND Patients older than 85 years are increasingly admitted to hospital care settings. Despite this, the clinical employment of equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has been scarcely investigated so far in this age group. Our study compared 2 commonly employed equations to estimate GFR, as well as measured 24-hour creatinine(More)

Adrenal cysts are an uncommon finding, in most cases unexpectedly discovered in the evaluation of nonspecific abdominal pain or at autopsy. Cystic adrenal masses can be classified into neoplastic and non-neoplastic aetiologies. The distinction between malignant and benign adrenal cysts can still be difficult. Cysts of neoplastic aetiology occur as a result(More)
It is known that insulin release is calcium-dependent and that calcium-antagonists, blocking calcium transport across cell membranes, inhibit it, especially interfering with the second phase of insulin secretion. Gallopamil (GAL) is a new calcium-antagonist that, although structurally similar to verapamil, has more potency. It blocks slow calcium channels(More)
