Background - Worldwide, there are millions of chronic proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) users, often without a compelling indication. Evidence indicates that PPI treatment can increase mortality, in part due to a higher risk of QTc-related malignant arrhythmias. Drug-induced hypomagnesemia is currently believed to be the underlying mechanism, and therefore serum magnesium monitoring is recommended to minimize arrhythmic risk. However, recent data suggest that PPIs might also directly interfere with ...

BACKGROUND Early and accurate diagnosis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and actinic keratosis (AK) is fundamental to reduce their morbidity and to select the correct treatment. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new imaging device that can characterize healthy skin and basal cell carcinoma, but no large studies are available on keratinocyte cell tumours. OBJECTIVES To identify and describe LC-OCT criteria associated with SCC and AK and to compare LC-OCT fin...

Abstract Background Available national public data are often too incomplete and noisy to be used directly to interpret the evolution of epidemics over time, which is essential for making timely and appropriate decisions. The use of compartment models can be a worthwhile and attractive approach to address this problem. The present study proposes a model compartmentalized by sex and age groups that allows for more complete information on the evolution of the CoViD-19 pandemic in Italy. Material an...

Background Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) accounts for 5–10% of strokes and its prognosis may be influenced by different complications, including delayed cerebral ischaemia (DCI). The pathophysiology of DCI is complex and still unknown. Many different mechanisms may contribute to the occurrence of DCI. Arterial stiffness (AS), a well-known risk factor for cardiovascular events, also associated with the development and rupture of cerebral aneurysms, may represent a novel contributing risk factor....

To date, is yet to be elucidated whether the body location of cutaneous melanoma can significantly affect an early dermoscopic diagnosis and, consequently, if it can be regarded as a prognostic factor. To investigate the dermoscopic appearance of early melanomas (EMs) at different body sites; to test the ability of dermoscopists in recognizing specific dermoscopic features in EMs. A pool of 106 experienced dermoscopists evaluated the presence of 10 dermoscopic features assumed as suggestive of m...

BACKGROUND The 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) ultrasound (US) risk stratification system is used to identify thyroid nodules in which fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) should be performed. In addition this system is used to plan the long-term follow-up of patients with cytological benign thyroid nodules. The aim of our study was to evaluate the ATA US risk-adapted approach for repeating cytology in a large retrospective cohort of consecutive benign nodules with a second fine-needle...

BACKGROUND The anatomical location of atypical melanocytic skin lesion (aMSL) was never combined into an algorithm for discriminating early melanomas (EM) from atypical nevi (AN). AIMS To investigate the impact of body location on the intuitive diagnosis performed in tele-dermoscopy by dermatologists of different skill levels. A further aim was to evaluate how the integration of the body location could improve an algorithm-aided diagnosis. METHODS We retrospectively collected 980 standardized de...

Introduction. The management of patients with indeterminate thyroid nodules, which account for 10–25% of thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs), is still very challenging. Aim. To verify the utility of the 7–gene panel in combination with ultrasound features, in the clinical management of indeterminate thyroid nodules. Results: The study group included 188 indeterminate thyroid nodules, divided into TIR3A (56.4%) and TIR3B (43.6%). A significant correlation between US categories and bot...

Background Anti-Sjogren's syndrome-related antigen A-antibodies (anti-Ro/SSA-antibodies) are responsible for a novel form of acquired long-QT syndrome, owing to autoimmune-mediated inhibition of cardiac human ether-a-go-go-related gene-potassium channels. However, current evidence derives only from basic mechanistic studies and relatively small sample-size clinical investigations. Hence, the aim of our study is to estimate the risk of QTc prolongation associated with the presence of anti-Ro/SSA-...
