Transarterial chemoembolization is the most widely used palliative treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma. The Authors present a case report of a 61-year old man with hepatocellular carcinoma, belonging to Child-Pugh class A. The advanced age and the(More)
Imbalance of bone resorption and bone formation is responsible for osteoporosis that is characterized by decreased bone mass and mineral density. The aim of this study was to evaluate the available data that could clarify the effectiveness and safety of supplementations with calcium and vitamin D, alone or in combination, to slow down bone loss in(More)
The levothyroxine suppressive efficacy in benign thyroid nodules treatment is well described in uninodular non-toxic goiter, whereas only few controlled trials enrolled patients with multinodular disease.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common malignancy of the liver and the third most common cause of cancer mortality worldwide. The major risk of developing HCC is associated with HBV and HCV hepatitis. Liver transplant (LT) is the gold standard for "small" HCC (HCCs) in Child-Pugh class A cirrhotic patients. However its use has been restricted by(More)
OBJECTIVE Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a severe preventable disease; HIV-infection represents a prothrombotic condition, because of specific factors due to the virus itself, the host response and the antiretroviral therapy. Our aim is to raise awareness of thromboembolic risk when dealing with HIV-positive patients presenting to the Emergency Department(More)
