A study was carried out in northeastern Italy during 2000 and 2001 to investigate the occurrence of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli in animals, cattle, pigs, and broilers, and raw meat, beef, pork, and chicken. Campylobacter spp. were detected in 53.9% of the cattle, 63.5% of the pigs, and 82.9% of the broilers examined. Chicken meat was(More)
The blood loss that accompanies liposuction procedures has always been a concern. Tumescent injection of the targeted area of liposuction with dilute lidocaine and epinephrine solution has minimized intraoperative blood loss. Proponents of a newer ultrasonically assisted lipoplasty technique have claimed many benefits over traditional suction-assisted(More)
BACKGROUND Although having a non-O blood type is now regarded as a risk factor for venous thromboembolism, the strength of this association is poorly defined, as is its interaction with inherited thrombophilia. MATERIALS AND METHODS The prevalence of non-O blood group and inherited thrombophilia (deficiencies of natural anticoagulants, factor V Leiden and(More)
Thrombotic events in congenital hypo-afibrinogenemia have been rarely reported, either in association or not with replacement therapy or thrombotic risk factors. We describe clinical findings and management of thrombosis of abdominal aorta with peripheral embolism in a patient with congenital afibrinogenemia. A review of arterial thrombosis in inherited(More)
Once anticoagulation is stopped, the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) over years after a first episode is consistently around 30%. This risk is higher in patients with unprovoked than in those with (transient) provoked VTE, and among the latter in patients with medical than in those with surgical risk factors. Baseline parameters that have(More)
BACKGROUND Intraoperative blood loss and postoperative anemia have been a concern when more than 1500 ml of lipoplasty material is aspirated. Blood loss is minimal when the targeted area is infiltrated with large volumes of dilute lidocaine and epinephrine. However, little quantitative data are available regarding the intraoperative blood loss and(More)
The impact of residual vein thrombosis (RVT) on the long-term outcome of patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is unknown. We assessed the incidence of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE), postthrombotic syndrome (PTS), arterial thrombotic events, and cancer in patients with DVT with and without RVT. For this purpose, we evaluated up to 3 years 869(More)
