A double-blind clinical trial was carried out involving 26 hospitalized, depressed patients who were randomized into two groups. Patients in each group received chlorimipramine (50 mg/day), combined with L-5-HTP (300 mg/day) in Group A, and with placebo in Group B. The trial lasted 28 days. Two Group B patients dropped out. All the patients were evaluated(More)
Forty-eight elementary and junior high school students presenting the association of recurring headache and sleep disorders were selected for this study on the basis of a questionnaire filled out by the entire school population. The selected students had normal intellectual capacity but often showed inadequate progress in school, attentive-mnemonic(More)
It has been hypothesized that acetyl-L-carnitine has a cholinomimetic action. It is for this reason that it has been used in the therapy of Alzheimer's type senile dementia impairment. In the present controlled double-blind study the authors followed two randomized homogeneous groups of both sexes of 30 patients each, aged over 65 years and suffering from(More)
PURPOSE Patients with cryptorchidism can have such short spermatic vessels that it is impossible to place the testicle in a satisfactory scrotal position using conventional orchiopexy. In these cases the most commonly used operation is 1 to 2-stage Fowler-Stephens orchiopexy. We present our surgical experience using staged inguinal orchiopexy without(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The standard method of surgical correction of pyloric atresia "solid segment" type is a gastroduodenostomy that can in the long term cause bilious duodenogastric reflux. The authors report 2 cases of pyloric atresia in which the pyloric sphincter was reconstructed by a new technique of gastroduodenal mucosal advancement anastomosis. (More)
BACKGROUND The standard method of surgical correction of pyloric atresia is gastro-duodenostomy. The authors report a case of pyloric atresia associated with junctional epidermolysis bullosa, treated with a new technique of pyloric sphincter reconstruction by gastric and duodenal mucosa cul-de-sacs advancement and end-to-end anastomosis. METHODS The(More)
The procedure of choice in the surgical correction of "long gap" esophageal atresia should, when possible, preserve the native esophagus. We present a modification of "the multistaged extrathoracic esophageal elongation method," designed to facilitate esophageal elongation and use of a Gore-Tex (W.L. Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, AZ) surgical membrane to(More)
Transanal endorectal resection and colonic pull-through (TERPT) is a good technique for the management of Hirschsprung’s disease. This procedure is feasible in the vast majority of patients and is associated with excellent results, early postoperative recovery, and no visible scars. We report the case of a patient who developed early postoperative severe(More)
Assessment of clinical evolution and histological findings in a group of animals experimentally operated on to substitute the thoracic oesophagus with a gastric tube. Six piglets underwent oesophageal replacement with a gastric tube, constructed from the greater curvature of stomach and pedicled on the gastroepiploic vessels, which was interposed between(More)
The trial has been carried out on 33 treated Parkinsonian patients and 14 healthy controls. A series of psychometric tests were employed in order to show a possible intellectual deterioration in Parkinsonian patients. Bender's test showed greater motor-perceptive deterioration in Parkinsonian patients respect to control, the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence(More)
