We reviewed retrospectively the records of all patients who underwent laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) at our institution for a wide range of hematological disorders. We compared our experience to those reported in the literature and analyzed various aspects of the treatment that are still under discussion and in need of confirmation, such as the treatment of(More)
Occult or overt but delayed cardiac disease after thoracic radiotherapy for Hodgkin's disease may be common. Detailed cardiac evaluation was performed in 108 patients, mean age 46 +/- 6.2 years, with Hodgkin's disease at 175 +/- 43 months after irradiation. The study protocol included clinical examination, graded treadmill exercise test and(More)
AIMS Randomized trials have shown that beta-blockers (BBs) reduce mortality in chronic heart failure (HF). Less data are available on the role of BBs in patients with acute HF, specifically if BBs should be continued or temporarily withdrawn. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of BBs on in-hospital outcomes of patients admitted for worsening HF(More)
Hemodynamic studies were performed immediately before, within 1/2 hour and 24 hours after percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty in 31 patients with severe mitral stenosis and pulmonary hypertension. Single rubber-nylon balloon (Inoue balloon) technique was used in all the procedures. Mean transmitral gradient fell from 12.7 +/- 5.4 mmHg to 6.1 +/- 3.1 mmHg (p <(More)
The analysis of valvular morphology is important in selecting patients with mitral rheumatic stenosis for percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty. Transthoracic echocardiography definitely plays a major role in this characterization whereas the usefulness of transesophageal echocardiography has not been determined yet. We studied 95 patients (82 females, 13(More)
A group of 82 adult patients with acute myelogenous leukaemia had survived in continuous first remission for more than three years was studied. These long-surviving patients were being treated at 12 referral centres in Europe and the USA, and they were compared with other patients with acute myelogenous leukaemia from 10 of these centres. There was no clear(More)
