Use of Human Fibrin Glue (Tissucol) Versus Staples for Mesh Fixation in Laparoscopic Transabdominal Preperitoneal Hernioplasty: A Prospective, Randomized Study
The use of Tissucol provides distinct advantages in laparoscopic treatment of inguinal/femoral hernias compared with conventional TAPP, including a lower incidence of postoperative neuralgia and an earlier resumption of physical and social activities.
Clinical lessons from the first applications of BNCT on unresectable liver metastases.
The clinical application of BNCT on humans affected by liver metastases of a radically resected colon adenocarcinoma has shown that extracorporeal neutron irradiation of the liver is a feasible procedure, able to ensure the complete destruction of liver metastase and a possible long lasting survival.
Habitual snoring with and without obstructive sleep apnoea: the importance of cephalometric variables.
The lack of association between cephalometric variables and mild sleep apnoea suggests that the differences in these variables (soft tissue measures) may be the consequence rather than the cause of habitual snoring and the obstructive sleep apNoea syndrome.
Detergent-Enzymatic Decellularization of Swine Blood Vessels: Insight on Mechanical Properties for Vascular Tissue Engineering
Investigation of the effect of a detergent-enzymatic decellularization protocol on swine arteries in terms of cell removal, extracellular matrix preservation, and mechanical properties confirmed the process to be suitable for the generation of acellular scaffolds for vascular tissue engineering.

A pre-planned subgroup analysis of patients undergoing surgery with previous SARS-CoV-2 positive swab that were not suspected to have active COVID-19 at the time of surgery to guide whether postponing surgery in patients with a previous Sars-Cov-2 infection leads to a clinical benefit, and the optimal length of delay.
Immunomodulatory properties of porcine, bone marrow-derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells and comparison with their human counterpart.
Ex vivo expanded pMSCs share selected biological/functional properties with hMSCs and may be used in in vivo models to investigate novel approaches of prevention of graft rejection in solid organ transplantation.
Robotic‐Assisted Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy with Transvaginal Extraction of the Kidney
The initial experience with the combination of robotic surgery and transvaginal extraction of the donated kidney appears to open a new opportunity to further minimize the trauma to selected donors.
Low-Grade Fibromatosis-Like Spindle Cell Metaplastic Carcinoma: A Basal-Like Tumor with a Favorable Clinical Outcome. Report of Two Cases
Although the biological behavior of this subtype of breast cancer has not been adequately evaluated, wide local excision or mastectomy with clear resection margins but no axillary dissection appears to be an adequate treatment approach.
