The aim of this work is to describe our experience of minimally invasive approach in patients with synchronous colorectal neoplasias.Since January(More)
BACKGROUND In western countries intestinal obstruction caused by sigmoid volvulus is rare and its mortality remains significant in patients with late diagnosis. The aim of this work is to assess what is the correct surgical timing and how the prognosis changes for the different clinical types. METHODS We realized a retrospective clinical study including(More)
Each year, ~988,000 new cases of stomach cancer are reported worldwide. Uniformity for the definition of advanced gastric cancer (AGC) is required to ensure the improved management of patients. Various classifications do actually exist for gastric cancer, but the classification determined by lesion depth is extremely important, as it has been shown to(More)
BACKGROUND Cholecystectomy has been the treatment of choice for symptomatic gallstones, but remains the greatest source of post-operative biliary injuries. Laparoscopic approach has been recently preferred because of short hospitalisation and low morbidity but has an higher incidence of biliary leakages and bile duct injuries than open one due to a(More)
In most cases Colovesical fistulae are complications of diverticular disease and representing the most common kind of colodigestive fistula; less common are colovaginal, colocutaneous, coloenteric and colouterine fistula. In this article we review the literature concerning colovesical fistulae in colorectal surgery for sigmoid diverticulitis and report on(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic fistula is still one of the most serious and potential complications after D2-D3 distal and total gastrectomy (4% to 6%). Despite their importance, pancreatic fistulas still have not been uniformly defined. Amylase concentration of the drainage fluid after surgery for gastric cancer can be considered as a predictive factor of the(More)

Methods The authors present 7 cases of primary gastric stump cancer surgically treated in our department during the period 1999–2002. The age of patients was between 61 and 79 years. The average time between primary gastric resection and diagnosis of carcinoma of gastric stump was 19 years (6–32 years). All patients considered operable underwent total(More)
Results Only 12 patients (37.5%) performed a preoperative diagnostic CT study, whereas in 20 cases (62.5%) the intestinal ischemia was diagnosed during surgical exploration. The acute mesenteric ischemia caused primarily by occlusive superior mesenteric artery in 26 cases (81.2%) and by venous thrombosis in 6 cases (18.7%). Most of the embolus are located(More)
