The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the auditory brain stem responses (ABR) and short latency somatosensory potentials (SEP) from median nerve stimulation are effective tools in the confirmation of brain death. Thirty six brain dead patients were submitted to ABR and 24 to SEP in the same session. All waves of the ABR were absent in 28 (77.8 per(More)
Motor evoked potentials (MEPs) following magnetic stimulation were recorded in 22 patients comatose as a result of head injury (13 cases), stroke (7 cases) or anoxia (2 cases). Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) from median nerve were recorded as well in 19 cases in the same session. Thirteen patients died or remained vegetative (59.1%), 3 were severely(More)
The short latency evoked potentials, allowing to assess the brain stem's function, can supply useful information in the diagnosis of Brain Death (BD). 15 BD patients were submitted to the auditory brain stem response (ABR); in 7 cases somatosensory evoked potentials from the medial nerve (SEP) were also recorded. The ABR was absent in 11 cases (73.3%),(More)
BACKGROUND Kidneys with single or multiple tumors, provided that they have histological features recognized as being associated with low risk of recurrence, are considered suitable for transplantation. It is known that kidneys with multiple primary renal tumors show poor renal function and that function dramatically declines when tumors have a miliary(More)
BACKGROUND De novo renal neoplasia developing after kidney transplantation at Verona Kidney Transplant Center were reviewed according to new 2016 WHO Renal Tumor Classification. MATERIAL AND METHODS Primary renal tumors developed in native or transplanted kidneys de novo following renal transplantation were retrieved and histologically reviewed by three(More)
