Peritoneal Mesothelioma Treated by Cytoreductive Surgery and Intraperitoneal Hyperthermic Chemotherapy: Results of a Prospective Study
A therapeutic strategy combining cytoreductive surgery with intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy seems to provide an adequate and efficient locoregional treatment for peritoneal mesothelioma, associated with acceptable morbidity when performed by an experienced surgical team.
Quantitative prognostic indices in peritoneal carcinomatosis.
Lack of recovery in monocyte human leukocyte antigen-DR expression is independently associated with the development of sepsis after major trauma
This is the first study in trauma patients showing a link between the lack of immune recovery and the development of sepsis on the basis of the standardized protocol, and monitoring immune function by mHLA-DR measurement could be useful to identify trauma patients at a high risk of infection.
Diagnosis and treatment of spontaneous group A streptococcal peritonitis
Primary group A streptococcal peritonitis (PSAP) is a rare, fulminant and often fatal infection. The clinical manifestations include diffuse peritoneal signs with toxic shock syndrome and sometimes
MRSA infections among patients in the emergency department: a European multicentre study
This original prospective multicentre study highlights stark differences in European MRSA epidemiology compared with the USA, and that the USA300 CA-MRSA clone is not predominant among community-infected patients in Europe.
Prospective evaluation of nonenhanced MR imaging in acute pancreatitis
To compare the value of nonenhanced (NE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (NE‐MRI) with contrast‐enhanced (CE) computed tomography (CT) (CE‐CT) scan in assessing acute pancreatitis (AP) and in
Portal Venous Gas Detected on Computed Tomography in Emergency Situations: Surgery Is Still Necessary
The prognosis was related to the pathology itself and was not influenced by the presence of PVG, and all the diagnosed causal pathologies required a surgical procedure without delay.
Long-term results of intrathoracic chemohyperthermia (ITCH) for the treatment of pleural malignancies
The combination of surgery with ITCH with mitomycin and/or cisplatin is relatively safe, and may offer unexpected long-term survival in a selected group of patients (T1 and T2 mesothelioma patients and fibrosarcoma patients).
