BACKGROUND: This study assessed the effects of different local anesthetic delivery techniques for continuous adductor canal block, after arthroscopic day-case anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). METHODS: We enrolled 80 patients to randomly receive a ropivacaine 0.2% infusion 6 mL per hour through an adductor canal catheter by an electronic pump as follow: intermittent automatic bolus (intermittent group, N.=40) versus continuous infusion (continuous group, N.=40). Patient controlle...

Purpose The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability and repeatability of the Low Contrast Detectability (LCD) statistical method in angiography systems [1] , [2] . Methods A phantom consisting of a square aluminum target and a 5-step-wedge (0.2–1 mmAl) was built according to Radice et al. [2] . Different acquisition protocols were used (low, normal and high dose fluoroscopy; abdomen and cerebtal fluorography), and measurements were repeated for several thicknesses of PolyMethylMethAcr...

Purpose To evaluate Target Volumes (TVs) and Organs At Risk (OARs) irradiation in endometrial adenocarcinoma (EADK) Volumetric-Modulated-Arc-Therapy Simultaneous Integrated Boost (SIB-VMAT) plans using Conformity Indices (CIs). Methods 10 EADK patients treated with SIB-VMAT (45 Gy (TV45) on pelvic lymph-node and 50 Gy (TV50) on vaginal vault were selected. Median TV45 and TV50 were 1106.1 cc (774.1–1699.3 cc) and 504.5 cc (346.1–643.5 cc) respectively. Bones, rectum, bladder, small bowel and fem...

Purpose Aim of our study is to verify the correspondence between gating window width and chest wall position by analysis of Respiration Waveform acquired by Varian RPM Respiratory Gating System during treatments of left-sided breast in DIBH. Methods Two CT series were obtained for each patient, in free breathing (FB) and DIBH using RPM. In DIBH the width of the gating window, i.e. the allowed chest wall motion, was identified for each patient considering 5 mm margins and stored on Reference Resp...

Purpose In DR mammography, comparison of the Entrance Skin Dose (ESD) and the Average Glandular Dose (AGD) data provided by the structured dose report (SR) with the measures performed on phantom and on patient. Methods Two identical mammography systems, Amulet (Fujifilm), working in AEC with W/Rh spectrum and voltage range of 26–32 kV, were taken into account. For a PMMA phantom (18 × 24 cm2, thickness of 20–70 mm) and for a sample of 21 patients, both ESD and AGD were estimated. The X-ray outpu...

Purpose To test the hypothesis that the volume of pelvic bone marrow (PBM) receiving 10–20-30–40 Gy (V10-V20-V30-V40) and median dose is associated with hematologic toxicity (HT) in gynecological cancer patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Methods and materials We analyzed 29 consecutive gynecological cancer patients (21 only RT and 8 with concurrent chemotherapy) and volumetric-modulated-arc radiation therapy at the Varese Hospital between 2013 and 2015. The median radiation dose...

Purpose To evaluate the urethral tolerance in postoperative adaptive endocavitary High-Dose-Rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) in endometrial adenocarcinoma (EADK), correlating local toxicity with urethral dose and HDR-BT parameters. Methods Between 2012 and 2017, 29 post-hysterectomy EADK patients were consecutively treated with endocavitary HDR-BT. The median total dose was 35.0 (21.0–41.5) Gy delivered in 6 (3–6) fraction of median 6.5 (5.5–7.0) Gy. Urethra was contoured on CT-images acquired before...

Abstract The goals of the study described here were to evaluate the feasibility and reproducibility of measuring spleen stiffness (SS) using point shear wave elastography in a series of cirrhotic patients and to investigate whether SS, liver stiffness (LS) and other non-invasive parameters are correlated with the presence of esophagogastric varices (EVs). Fifty-four cirrhotic patients with low-grade EVs or without EVs at esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy were enrolled. They underwent abdominal ultras...
