We report the case of bilateral renal clear cell carcinoma in the native kidney, occurring fouryears after renal transplantation. Renal Doppler duplex sonography revealed large solid bilateral neoformation. Total-body computed tomography confirmed the presence of bilateral kidney lesions and also showed the presence of concomitant gross dyscariocinetic lesion of left hemotorax. The patient underwent bilateral native nephrectomy and the histological diagnosis was renal cell carcinoma. Subsequent left upper lobectomy revealed necrotic keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma...

Based on the group of 22 patients operated on for a blunt injury of the thorax a diagnostic-therapeutic algorithm was evaluated in the procedure of the treatment of a severe trauma of the thorax. Acute thoracotomy or laparotomy was performed in 17 patients and in 5 of them thoracotomy was indicated only after some time interval. In the patients with acute surgery the indication was a rupture of diaphragm, massive hemotorax in case of lung laceration of bleeding from thoracic wall, rupture of bronchus and an associated injury of intra-abdominal parenchymal organs...

Radiofrequency interstitial hyperthermia has been used for percutaneous ablation of hepatocellular carcinoma, under ultrasound guidance in local anesthesia. Conventional needle electrodes require a mean number of 3 sessions to treat tumors of diameter < or = 3 cm. Tumors up to 3.5 cm in diameter can be treated in 1 or 2 sessions by expandable needle electrodes. With both methods in all treated cases, ablation of tumors was obtained. In a group of patients with long follow-up, survival rate at 5 years was 40%...

Major electrical injuries constitute approximately 5% of all admissions to Burn Units. Visceral complications are associated with a high mortality rate. The most common visceral lesions associated to electric burns are cardiac lesions. Pulmonary compromise is rare, if compared to inhalation injuries in termical burns. Although, when the entry or exit ports are the toracic wall, pleural effusion, hemotorax and pneumonitis may occur. A rare case of high-voltage electrical injury with massive pulmonary lesion is presented, regarding to clinical course and roentgenographic patterns...
