INTRODUCTION Blood loss and bile leakage are well-known risk factors for morbidity and mortality during liver resection. Bleeding usually occurs during parenchymal transection, and surgical technique should be considered an important factor in preventing intraoperative and postoperative complications. OBJECTIVE Many approaches and devices have been(More)
AIMS The correct identification of solid cell nests (SCNs) is an important issue in thyroid pathology because of the spectrum of differential diagnoses of this type of lesion. METHODS AND RESULTS Ten cases of 295 consecutive thyroidectomies showed the presence of SCNs at histological examination. The identification of the exact SCN type required the(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical site infection (SSI) remains the most frequent complication after colorectal resection. The role of sutures coated with antimicrobial agents such as triclosan in reducing SSI is controversial. METHODS This was a multi-center randomized controlled trial with patients and outcome assessors blinded to treatment. The study was performed in(More)
Recent advancements in Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionisation (MALDI) Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) technology have enabled the analysis of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples, unlocking a wealth of new proteomic information and facilitating the possibility of performing studies with higher statistical power as well as(More)
Combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-CC) is a rare primary liver cancer. Our aims were to analyze the demographic, clinical, and pathological characteristics of cHCC-CC at a population level and to investigate the effects of these features as well as different management strategies on the prognosis. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End(More)
OBJECTIVES The prognosis of patients with liver metastases of gastric cancer (LMGC) is dismal, but little is known about prognostic factors in these patients; thus justification for surgical resection is still controversial. The purpose of this study was to review recent outcomes of hepatectomy for LMGC and to determine which patients represent suitable(More)
Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) is the treatment of choice for acute cholecystitis (AC), but the optimal surgical timing is controversial. The aim of this study was to retrospectively verify the outcome of patients with AC according to different timing of cholecystectomy. Patients undergoing cholecystectomy for AC from 2006 to 2012 were stratified(More)
BACKGROUND The prognosis of patients with liver metastases from gastric cancer (LMGC) is dismal, and little is known about prognostic factors in these patients; so justification for surgical resection is still controversial. Furthermore the results of chemotherapy for these patients are disappointing. The purpose of this study was to review recent outcomes(More)
CONTEXT Pancreatic cystic lesions are increasingly recognized and comprise different pathological entities. The management of these lesions is challenging, because of inadequate preoperative histological diagnosis. Among this family of lesions, mature cystic teratomas are an extremely rare finding. CASE REPORT We present the case of a 61-year-old man with(More)
Splenectomy is frequently required in children for various hematologic pathologic findings. Because of progress in minimally invasive techniques, laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) has become feasible. The objective of this report is to present a monocentric experience and to evaluate the efficacy of and complications observed after laparoscopic splenic(More)
