It is reported the case of a 69 years man who presented to the Emergency Room because of pain and abdominal distension from ascites. After admission and paracentesis placement, he developed a digestive hemorrhage due to oesophageal varices from portal ipertension secondary to the formation of a portal shunt concomitant with a multifocal HepatoCellular Carcinoma (HCC) with portal vein thrombosis (PVT). The patient underwent endoscopic varices ligation, twice transarterial embolization (TAE) of arterial branches feeding the shunt and subsequent left hepatectomy...

The Authors describe the case of a 55 years old man, affected by ipercolesterolemy, ipertension and glaucoma, observed because of an important left parotid and laterocervical erythema with a small brown area measuring less than 1 cm inside. In the last two years the patient underwent resection of two basaliomas and of a porocarcinoma, with infiltration of margins, in the same region. Clinical and instrumental findings indicated the presence of reactive parotid's nodes; no evident lesions appeared at the examination of the ENT regions...

Esophagotrachea is the most severe form of laryngo-tracheo-esophageal cleft. This congenital anomaly is due to the anomalous differentiation of the primitive cephalic gut into trachea and esophagus. We present a case of a new born female with a common tracheoesophageal canal up to the carina. Atresia ani, a vulvo-vestibular fistula, sacral ipoplasia and others associated anomalies were also present. The baby underwent surgery after a laringo-tracheoscopy and a barium study of the esophagus. The prognosis of this extremely rare malformation is generally poor and the baby died on the fifth day after surgery for a serious ipertensive pneumothorax...

In the last decades the hepatic surgery has been more and more employed thanks to improvement of the surgical technique and of the post-operative assistance which have brought the peroperative mortality of principal specialistic centres to less of 5%. The main post-operative complications which trouble the hepatic surgery, forming in same cases the cause of the death, are: hepatic insufficiency, haemorrhage, subphrenic abscess and the appearance of biliary fistulas. These complications are often connected and linked to the devitalization of a part of the residual parenchyma...

Positron emission tomography (PET) offers the unique capability of measuring specific flow (flow per unit of mass) in man by means of a regional, tridimensional, noninvasive approach. Using PET, myocardial perfusion abnormalities secondary to microvascular disorders have been investigated in arterial hypertension (AH), dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CM), as well as in ischemic heart disease (CAD). In AH, regional perfusion at rest is within the normal range, while the coronary reserve and flow response to increase in metabolic demand are blunted...
