Plasma fibrinolytic activity and tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) were defective in response to venous stasis in five out of ten patients with peripheral occlusive artery disease. Discontinuous infusions of iloprost, a stable synthetic analogue of prostacyclin, restored a normal fibrinolytic response in all five patients but did not induce a(More)
The present study was designed to assess the hemodynamic conditions, by means of impedance cardiography methods, and the relation existing between vascular reactivity to isometric stress (isometric handgrip test) and the day/night blood pressure variations, estimated by ABPM. Fifty unselected untreated non-obese EEH adult subjects (WHO class I) with a(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) features of focal dermal mucinosis (FDM). The entity clinically and dermatoscopically mimics other diagnostic entities, most notably nonpigmented basal cell carcinoma. We describe two cases that highlight the dermatoscopic, RCM and histopathological attributes of FDM. RCM(More)
We report a case of cutaneous plasmacytomas developing in a patient with a 7-month history of progressive multiple myeloma refractory to bortezomib and combination chemotherapy. When involving the skin, plasmacytomas typically arise in the setting of multiple myeloma as contiguous extensions from underlying bony disease. More rarely, cutaneous plasmacytomas(More)
Head and neck cancer most often requires a multimodality approach to treatment that includes the use of radiotherapy. Unfortunately, radiation treatment can cause significant locoregional adverse effects with the particularly debilitating sequelae of late pathologic fracture. We aimed to define comprehensive metrics that will allow us to evaluate the(More)
