INTRODUCTION Nesidioblastosis is a rare disease caused by hyperplasia of pancreatic islets, developing a state of hypoglycemia due to an increase in the insulin production. It is the leading cause of hyperinsulinic hypoglycemia in childhood, whereas in adults it only represents the 0.5-5% of cases. The pathogenesis is still unknown. We have studied several(More)
Background This paper reports a study of 21 patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from ovarian cancer who underwent cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC by means of PRS-1.0 Combat®, a new model for closed abdomen HIPEC aimed at improving fluid distribution with assistance from a CO2 recirculation system. This new technology has been previously shown to be(More)
BACKGROUND Merkel cell carcinoma is an aggressive neuroendocrine cell carcinoma arising in the epidermis of patients aged >60 years. This lesion is found in sun-exposed areas and presents as a small violet raised nodule. It is usually painless and rapidly growing. Although its clinical presentation and characteristic histology are usually sufficient,(More)
CLINICAL CASE A 53-year old male presented with visual impairment in right eye after irradiation of right maxillary sinus carcinoma. Funduscopy shows radiation retinopathy: haemorrhages, exudates, macular oedema, and peripheral retinal ischaemia. A poor outcome was achieved despite laser treatment and intravitreal injections of bevacizumab, resulting in(More)
BACKGROUND mammary fibromatosis is a rare pathology. It constitutes 0.2% of breast cancers, and case in men are exceptional. The definitive diagnosis is histological. CLINICAL CASE we report the case of a male of 52 years, diagnosed with breast fibromatosis after pathologic study of tumor in the right breast. Programmed surgery for excision with wide(More)
OBJECTIVE The origin of pancreatic cancer has been identified as a population of malignant pancreatic stem cells CD133+ CXCR4+ immunophenotype. These cells have high capacity for early locoregional invasion, being responsible for early recurrence and high mortality rates of pancreatic cancer. We propose a study for decreasing tumor progression of pancreatic(More)
Furazolidone has normally been administered as a non-absorbable antimicrobial agent for use in gastrointestinal infections. However, in India and Mexico it has been used successfully for the treatment of typhoid fever. We measured concentrations of furazolidone by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in several biological fluids, after a single(More)
INTRODUCTION Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is an effective treatment for peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC). Laparoscopic surgery is performed in the treatment of colorectal and appendiceal cancer, and PC from diverse origin in selected patients. HIPEC management by laparoscopic approach after cytoreductive surgery (CRS) completed(More)
INTRODUCTION Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is due to a single adenoma in 85%-95% of cases, and is often cured after adenoma removal. Intraoperative rapid determination of intact parathyroid hormone (PTHio) may be a tool for monitoring the effectiveness of PHPT surgery. The main objective of our study was to evaluate PTHio determination and to establish(More)
BACKGROUND Cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy is the best operative treatment currently available for patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis of ovarian origin. The open abdomen technique is the classic technique for hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. We developed a closed abdomen model that improves temperature(More)
