Following the indication of the World Health Organization, a national plan for the elimination of measles was approved in Italy and this included the improvement of the molecular surveillance of measles viruses and the interruption of indigenous transmission of the disease. Nevertheless, large outbreaks continue to occur in almost all regions of the country, including Sicily. Here we describe the epidemiology and molecular dynamics of measles viruses as a result of the measles surveillance activity carried out by the "Reference Laboratory for Measles and Rubella" in Sicily over a 5-year period...

PURPOSE: If several studies analyse the working abilities of cancer survivors two years after the diagnosis, few of them analyse the long term becoming at work of these patients. Here we study a cohort of 153 workers, 6 years after they returned to work after experiencing a cancer in 2005 or 2006. All these workers participated in a previous study realised in 2008, two years after the diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fourty occupational physicians included 153 workers out of the 319 particpating in a first study conducted in 2008...

INTRODUCTION: Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) has gained wide acceptance for routine airway management and with increasing emphasis on day care surgery it is widely used. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of mini dose succinylcholine (0.1mg/kg) with semi-inflated cuff on facilitation of laryngeal mask airway insertion in order to achieve more satisfaction yet less complications . METHODS: In a randomized double-blinded study, sixty ASA 1, 2 and 3 patients aged 20-60 years scheduled for urologic surgical procedures were included...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) of the left anterior descending (LAD) specifically is associated with improved long-term 5 year survival as compared to PCI failure. The procedure is associated with usage of different types of dedicated guidewires by simple or complex techniques aiming to reopen the occluded artery. AIM: To describe types and outcome of guidewires used in LAD-CTO utilizing a first intentional single wiring simple strategy...

A 73-year-old man, in whom 26 years ago a malignant melanoma with cervical lymph node metastases of the right retroauricular region was diagnosed, developed BRAF V600E-negative distant metastases, which progressed during both monochemotherapy and polychemotherapy. Therefore he was started on ipilimumab in a dose of 3 mg/kg body weight four times in intervals of 3 weeks. Subsequently, there was an almost complete regression of distant metastases. In several phase III trials a significant survival benefit has been identified for patients treated with ipilimumab...

Phototherapy is used since early of 1980 years as non-drug method of therapy for seasonal depressive disorders. The research task: comparative study of phototherapy with different spectrum characteristics for correction of biorhythm disorders in persons with seasonal depressions. Groups of compare: 24 patients with recurrent depressive disorders in different years...

INTRODUCTION: In the 2009 reform of the German collective remuneration system for outpatient medical care, on the level of overall remuneration, the morbidity risk was transferred to the health funds fulfilling a long-term demand of physicians. Nevertheless not transferring morbidity adjustment to the levels of physician groups and singular practices can lead to budgets not related to patient needs and to incentives for risk selection for individual doctors. METHODS: The systematics of the distribution of overall remuneration in the German remuneration system for outpatient care are analysed focusing on the aspect of morbidity adjustment...

INTRODUCTION: Combined endovascular interventions on carotid and coronary arteries are rare. Stenting of the unprotected coronary left main stem is a high risk procedure. We presented hemodynamically unstable patient with combined carotid artery and left main stem coronary artery stenting. CASE REPORT: A 78-year-old female patient was admitted to our institution for right carotid endaterectomy. The patient had 80% stenosis of the right carotid artery and occlusion of the left carotid artery...

AIMS: To analyse individual and institutional "learning curve" in laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernioplasty (TAPP) and to identify key moments in its introduction at surgical clinic. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective unicentric clinical study. Longitudinal recording of information on age and sex of operated patients, type of hernia, size of implanted mesh, operative tactics and technique, complications and recurrence rate was performed. Obtained data was statistically analysed and tested repeatably, results interpreted with respect to need of modification of peri- and postoperative management...

BACKGROUND: To prevent amputation, achieving successfull ankle artrodesis in diabetic Charcot arthropaty patients is very important. As a salvage procedure, we have used a 95-degree-angled blade plate via a posterior approach to achieve tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2006 and 2008, four diabetic patients with hindfoot Charcot arthropathy underwent talectomy and tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis with an AO 95-degree-angled blade plate via a posterior approach...

A test included 40 women in the reproductive age with clinical symptoms of vaginitis and microbiological examination. They were treated by combined therapy of vaginal tablets of nifuratel, 500 mg and nistatin 200 000 i. u. during six days, after which they underwent gynaecological reexamination and repeated microbiological examination of vaginal and cervical smears. An analiysis of vaginal secretion found bacterial flora in 34 smears (65%), fungus (Candida albicans) in 15 (24%) and Trichomonas vaginalis in 7 (11%)...

Recent advances in surgical techniques for thoracic have led to an increased use of one lung ventilation techniques. One lung ventilation is performed by doubled lumen tubes, fogarty catheters, Univent tubes and bronchial blockers. In this paper our bronchial blocker experiences were presented in fifteen thoracic surgery patients. Bronchial blockers were placed in fifteen patients who needed one-lung ventilation during thoracic surgery between January-April in 2007. Type of the bronchial blockers were selected randomly and total eight Cohen and seven Arndt bronchial blocker were placed...

The most common approach in the treatment of bifurcation lesions is stenting only the main branch (MB) with provisional T-stenting of the side branch (SB). However, some bifurcation lesions may have extensive disease within a large SB requiring stenting of this vessel. The "crush" technique, which has been proposed as an alternative approach to other strategies to treat complex bifurcations, is a relatively simple technique that ensures complete coverage of the SB ostium. Previous series have reported its safety and feasibility, but limited data are available about the long-term outcomes...

Popliteal artery aneurysms can thrombose or cause distal embolization and are therefore potentially limb-threatening lesions. This report describes the case of a 70-year-old man with severe claudication due to a thrombosed aneurysm of the left popliteal artery. He gave consent for a locoregional thrombolytical therapy, but refused standard surgical treatment. Thus, we developed the idea to restore blood flow by means of thrombolysis first, and then to perform a definitive repair of the aneurysm after a period of time...

The aim of the study was to assess functional results of surgical sphincter reconstructions for anal incontinence. From August 1999 to January 2007, 52 patients (females 50, males 2), 45 y.o.a. on average (24-69), underwent secondary anal sphincters reconstructions for fecal incontinence, resulting from birth injuries, event. in combination with sphincter weakening in pudendal neurophathy, or for post-anorectal surgery incontinence. Duration of the incontinence symptoms prior to the surgery was 2 months to 19 years...
