Surgical risk is defined as the occurrence of complications arising in the individual as a result of surgical stress. The ability to forecast these consequences is an important factor in determining decision taken by surgeon. Several attempts have been made to quantify postsurgical prospects but up till now no overall solution has been found. This paper(More)
Results concerning 819 digestive sutures and anastomoses, 376 (45.9%) of which hand sewn and 443 (54.1%) stapled, are retrospectively analyzed. Comparative evaluation of the two techniques yielded better results for oesophageal and rectal anastomoses as well as duodenal stump closure mechanically performed. For intestinal anastomoses the two techniques(More)
Out of a total of 365 operations for colo-rectal disease performed during the period 1980-1989 at the III and V Division of General Surgery of the 2nd Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of Naples, 181 (49.6%) patients had rectosigmoidal cancer: 95 (52.5%) underwent anterior resection and 86 (47.5%) Miles' operation. In 46 patients who underwent mechanical(More)
Results concerning 14 cirrhotic patients who underwent LeVeen peritoneo-venous shunt for refractory or complicated ascites are discussed. The most relevant early complications regard coagulation disorders (35.7%) with a 14.3% postoperative mortality. The functional result appears largely satisfactory, also in terms of long-term efficiency. Utility of a wide(More)
Pancreaticojejunostomy is still followed by an unacceptable mortality and it warns the necessity to find and to verify more safe alternative methods in the management of pancreatic stump. In this work we analyze the results concerning 14 cases of pancreatic resections in which a pancreaticojejunostomy was not performed but the stump was closed with a(More)
In this study 8 pancreatic resections were performed using the Autosuture stapler. No fistula developed among 5 cases of distal pancreatectomy, conversely 2 pancreatic fistula occurred in 3 cases of pancreaticoduodenectomy; one patient died for fistula. It is concluded that distal pancreatectomy with staplers is a reasonable and safe alternative to(More)
