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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Thirty patients (mean age: 10.38 years) affected by primary headache were selected for a double-blind cross-over clinical trial. The patients were randomized into 2 homogeneous groups of 15 and treated for 12 weeks with L-5-HTP (100 mg/day) and placebo as per the following design: placebo - L-5-HTP (group A) and L-5-HTP - placebo (group B). Evaluation was(More)
Transanal endorectal resection and colonic pull-through (TERPT) is a good technique for the management of Hirschsprungs 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)
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)
