BACKGROUND/AIMS Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is characterized by a higher incidence of iatrogenic biliary lesions. The Authors evaluate the role of hepaticojejunostomy in the treatment of iatrogenic biliary lesions following laparoscopic cholecystectomy in 51 patients observed in the Campania region, Italy from 1991 to 2003. METHODOLOGY The Authors report(More)
An higher incidence rate of iatrogenic bile duct injuries is reported in cholecystectomy performed with the laparoscopy than with the laparotomy approach. The aim of this study was to provide a multicentre report on surgical treatment and the outcome of biliary complications during and following laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A questionnaire was mailed to(More)
Papillary and follicular thyroid carcinoma are still characterised by unclear biological and clinical behaviour with an autoptic incidence higher than the clinical incidence. Lymph-node involvement represents a prognostic factor that may increase the rate of local relapse, reducing long-term survival only in high risk patients--age > 45 years, M+, T > 3 cm,(More)
Fecal incontinence (FI) is associated to elevated costs related to diagnostic work-up, surgical treatment and instrumental follow-up. The real incidence is unknown and prevalence is higher after 45 years with a ratio F:M ratio of 8:1. Frequently FI is due to pelvic damage secondary to obstetric trauma. The Authors analyze surgical treatment results of FI(More)
The authors evaluated the role of a laparoscopic approach on a complete resection of an omental cyst. A young female patient (25 years of age) underwent a complete resection of a 12-cm omental cyst via a laparoscopic approach. The patient presented with vomiting, nausea, and pain in the periduodenal area. The lesion was diagnosed via CT and MRI. The authors(More)
In the treatment of hemorroidal prolapse, stapled hemorrhoidopexy, according to the Longo's technique, represents an innovative and interesting procedure. The Authors consider own experience in the years 2001-2002, estimating preliminary results in the treatment of 50 patients affected by hemorrhoidal disease classified as III-IV grade, associated with(More)
