Anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the anal canal distal to the dentate line, which most commonly occurs in the posterior midline. Anal fissure was defined chronic if the patient presented with history of anal pain during defecation for at least 2 months with the observation of sphincter fibers at the base of the lesion. One hundred and forty-two(More)
Comparisons of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in patients with severe aortic stenosis remain sparse or limited by a short follow-up. We sought to evaluate early and midterm outcomes of consecutive patients (n = 618) undergoing successful TAVI (n = 218) or isolated SAVR (n = 400) at 2 centers. The(More)
AIM Milligan-Morgan operation is still considered the treatment of choice for IV-degree haemorrhoids: it is frequently associated with significant postoperative pain and prolonged hospital stay. Many instruments were conceived to reduce these complications, such as the LigaSure™ (LS) system, a combination of radiofrequency and pressure that seems mainly(More)
BACKGROUND The 2 L polyethylene glycol (PEG) lavage solution has been proved to be similarly safe and effective as 4 L PEG formulations, in spite of the reduced volume. OBJECTIVE To compare low-volume PEG-based solution combined with ascorbic acid with high-volume PEG-based solution combined with simethicon in terms of efficacy and patient tolerability.(More)
The performance validation of software systems is becoming a crucial activity of the software development process. This is mostly due to the resource sharing and the remote deployment of software objects that may introduce critical delays in performance indices like the system response time. Hard and soft real-time systems are particularly affected from(More)
Introduction. Milligan-Morgan haemorrhoidectomy performed with LigaSure system (LS) seems to be mainly effective where a large tissue demolition is required. This randomized study is designed to compare LigaSure haemorrohidectomy with conventional diathermy (CD) for treatment of IV-degree haemorrhoids. Methods. 52 patients with IV-degree haemorrhoids were(More)
BACKGROUND Fast-track program has been applied in several surgical fields. However, currently many surgical patients are elderly over 70 years of age, and discussion about the application of such protocols for elderly patients is inadequate. MATERIALS AND METHODS The present study was designed to consider the safety and feasibility of application of a(More)
The gastrointestinal tract is the predominant site of extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Multiple lynphomatous polyposis is a type of appearance of mantle cell lymphoma. It is characterized by multiple polypoid lesions involving long gastrointestinal tracts and it accounts for only approximately 1-2% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. A 78 years old patient was(More)
PURPOSE "Outlet obstruction" is a complex functional disorder compelling patients to exhausting uneffective attempts to void. This study was designed to compare the effectiveness and a safety of the endorectal proctopexy (internal Delorme) vs STARR procedure in two groups of patients. METHODS A total of 66 patients with rectocele and associated mucosal(More)
Faecal incontinence is a very debilitating problem. Many techniques have been proposed to treat this condition, with controversial results. Autologous transplant of fat tissue is an established procedure used for the repair of tissue damage, and recent studies revealed the potentiality of tissue regeneration by human adipose-derived stem cells. We treated(More)
