Subclinical coronary artery atherosclerosis in patients with erectile dysfunction.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of our study was to assess the prevalence and extent of coronary artery atherosclerosis in asymptomatic patients with vascular erectile dysfunction (ED). BACKGROUND AnExpand
Thromboelastogram monitoring in the perioperative period of hepatectomy for adult living liver donation
Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is becoming a widespread procedure. However, the risk of surgical and medical complications in healthy donors is still a major concern. HypercoagulabilityExpand
The Italian multi-centre project on evaluation of MRI and other imaging modalities in early detection of breast cancer in subjects at high genetic risk.
This report presents the preliminary results of the first phase (21 months) of a multi-centre, non-randomised, prospective study, aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of contrast-enhanced magneticExpand
Terminalized semimechanical side-to-side suture technique for cervical esophagogastrostomy.
BACKGROUND The classic manual end-to-side technique of esophagogastrostomy after gastric pull-up to the neck carries a rather high risk of fistula and stricture. METHODS A terminalizedExpand
Coronally advanced flap for the treatment of buccal gingival recessions with and without enamel matrix derivative. A split-mouth study.
BACKGROUND The coronally advanced flap (CAF) is a predictable method for achieving root coverage in buccal gingival recessions. The use of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) has already been tested inExpand
Human Liver Stem Cell-Derived Microvesicles Inhibit Hepatoma Growth in SCID Mice by Delivering Antitumor MicroRNAs
Microvesicles (MVs) play a pivotal role in cell‐to‐cell communication. Recent studies demonstrated that MVs may transfer genetic information between cells. Here, we show that MVs derived from humanExpand
MBOAT7 rs641738 variant and hepatocellular carcinoma in non-cirrhotic individuals
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents an emerging cause of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), especially in non-cirrhotic individuals. The rs641738 C > T MBOAT7/TMC4 variant predisposes toExpand
Malignant tumors of the osteogenic matrix.
This article focuses on major clinical and imaging features that are of practical interest in the diagnosis and management of osteosarcoma, a malignant tumor arising from the osteogenic matrix. TheExpand
Microvesicles Derived from Endothelial Progenitor Cells Enhance Neoangiogenesis of Human Pancreatic Islets
The efficacy of islet transplantation is limited by poor graft vascularization. We herein demonstrated that microvesicles (MVs) released from endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) enhanced human isletExpand
Bacterial‐ and fungal‐positive cultures in organ donors: Clinical impact in liver transplantation
Infection transmission from donor to recipient is a dreadful complication in transplantation. Although bacteremia was previously detected in 5% of donors without negative impact on recipient outcome,Expand
