This study investigates the prediction accuracy of anticipatory pupil dilation responses in humans prior to the random presentation of alerting or neutral sounds. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the autonomous nervous system may react prior to the presentation of random stimuli. A total of 80 participants, who were matched according to(More)
This study is based on the analysis of the survival data in patients with N2 disease reported by Martini, Pearson, Shields et al. Many factors appear to influence survival of this group of patients. We made a retrospective analysis of a series of 91 patients with N2 disease between January 1980 and March 1985. Sixty-nine patients (71.5%) presented(More)

Between 1971 and 1986 11 patients suffering from pulmonary aspergilloma were seen in the thoracic surgery service at Genova-Sampierdarena Hospital. Nine patients underwent thoracotomy. Lobectomy was the most frequent operation. Complications occurred in 3 patients (33%). There were no recurrent symptoms in any of them over a mean follow-up of 4 years. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To determine the role of p53 mutations on survival after pancreatoduodenectomy for adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head. METHODOLOGY Resected specimens were assessed for expression of wild-type or mutated p53. Survival of p53-negative and- positive patients was investigated, and differences noted at 0.05 level. RESULTS Expression of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of standard pancreatoduodenectomy versus pancreatoduodenectomy with extended lymphadenectomy and the role of adjuvant therapy on survival in patients with ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head. In addition the problems related to resection are discussed. METHODOLOGY A total number(More)
Efficacy of automatic staplers in broncho-pulmonary surgery was evaluated in a series of 316 consecutive patients. The results confirm that utilization of staplers has drastically reduced the incidence of post-resection bronchial fistulae; moreover on parenchymal tissue such instruments guarantee excellent haemostasis and air tightness. On the contrary,(More)
