Objective: To evaluate the usefulness of fistulography as a diagnostic and management tool for clinically suspected pancreatic fistulas (PF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Methods: 84 consecutive fistulographies were performed for clinical suspicion of PF and retrospectively analysed. We radiologically defined two types of PF by means of fistulography, PF1 in the case of primary filling with contrast agent of the jejunal loop or stomach and PF2 in the case of secondary filling of the jejuna...

Background: Kinases represent potential therapeutic targets in pancreatic endocrine tumours (PETs). Patients and methods: Thirty-five kinase genes were sequenced in 36 primary PETs and three PET cell lines: (i) 4 receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK), epithelial growth factor receptor (EGFR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), tyrosine-protein kinase KIT (KIT), platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRalpha); (ii) 6 belonging to the Akt/mTOR pathway; and (iii) 25 frequently mu...

Background The urokinase plasminogen activator receptor is highly expressed and its gene is amplified in about 50% of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas; this last feature is associated with worse prognosis. It is unknown whether the level of its soluble form (suPAR) in urine may be a diagnostic-prognostic marker in these patients.

Background: Over the past few years, major changes have taken place in the treatment of gastroduodenal peptic ulcer. Aim: To evaluate risk factors associated with the incidence of peptic ulcer in inpatients. Methods: From 2001 to 2004, the number of prescriptions of H 2 -antagonists and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in each department of Verona University Hospital was monitored. Over the same period we prospectively recorded the number of upper endoscopies per department for inpatients with a di...

Objective To determine whether using a combination of body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) or waist-to-height ratio (W/Hr) is clinically helpful in identifying children with high metabolic and cardiovascular risks. Study design Caucasian children (M/F: 740/739; n = 1479; ages 5 to 15 years) were studied. Anthropometry, blood pressure, and venous fasting blood samples tested for triacylglycerol, HDL cholesterol, and glucose were measured. Results Overweight children with a large wai...
