The clinical management of BRAF-mutated metastatic melanoma had an important turning point after the introduction of the targeted therapy. Despite the efficacy and good tolerability of this treatment, the development of resistance mechanisms causes disease progression. The aim of this review is to investigate the role of treatment beyond progressio...

Introduction In the last few years, the advent of targeted therapy and immunotherapy has improved the management and the prognosis of metastatic melanoma, but the spread of resistance mechanisms can lead to disease progression. The clinical management in this setting can be challenging because the oncologist has to decide what is the best treatment...
Article
Background: Postoperative ascites (POA) is the most common complication after liver surgery for hepatocarcinoma (HCC), but its impact on survival is not reported. The aim of the study is to investigate its impact on overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS), and secondarily to identify the factors that may predict the occurrence. Meth...
Article
Background:Management of recurrence after surgery for hepatocellular carcinoma (rHCC) is still adebate. The aim was to compare the Survival after Recurrence (SAR) of curative (surgery or thermoa-blation) versus palliative (TACE or Sorafenib) treatments for patients with rHCC. Methods:This is a multicentric Italian study, which collected data betwee...
Article
Liver surgery is the first line treatment for hepatocarcinoma. Hepatocarcinoma Recurrence on the Liver Study (HERCOLES) Group was established in 2018 with the goal to create a network of Italian centres sharing data and promoting scientific research on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the surgical field. This is the first national report that anal...
Article
Skin metastases from colorectal cancer are a rare phenomenon that occurs only in 4,4% of cases. The presence of a cutaneous lesion at the Romatime of diagnosis is even more uncommon (0,05% of cases), and represents a sign of widespread, poor prognosis and terminal disease. Skin involvement by colorectal cancer can occur in four different pathways:...
Chapter
Whole-organ decellularization is recently gaining interest in the transplantation field as strategy to obtain acellular scaffold only composed by extracellular matrix. These structures, that still remain organ-specific in terms of biological cues and tridimensional morphology could be then recellularized with patient's autologous cells. The final r...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction Brunner's gland hamartoma (BGH) is an infrequently encountered, benign, polypoid proliferation of Brunner's glands. Usually these lesions are asymptomatic, just only occasionally presenting with duodenal obstruction or bleeding signs and mimicking a tumoral lesion. Case presentation A 72-year-old male, referred for recurrent vomiting...
Article
Full-text available
Background Sacral chordoma (SC) is a neoplasm arising from residual notochordal cells degeneration. SC is difficult to manage mainly because of anatomic location and tendency to extensive spread. Carbon ion radiotherapy (CIRT) is highly precise to selectively deliver high biological effective dose to the tumor target sparing the anatomical structur...
Article
Chromogranin A and B were normal. Cholecistectomy and enucleation of pancreatic lesion were undertaken. Post-operatively, symptons resolved and serum glucagon dropped to 7 pmol/l. Although H and E staining confirmed normal pancreatic tissue immunohistochemistry was initial thought to be suggestive of alpha cell hyperplasia. A count of glucagon posi...
Article
There is still an unmet clinical need for small-caliber artery substitution. Decellularized scaffolds in tissue engineering represent a promising solution. We have developed an innovative system for the automatic decellularization of blood vessels, used to process pig arteries. The system is able to automatically drive a decellularization process i...
Article
Full-text available
Acute generalized peritonitis secondary to complicated diverticulitis is a life-threatening condition; the standard treatment is surgery. Despite advances in peri-operative care, this condition is accompanied by a high peri-operative complication rate (22%-25%). No definitive evidence is available to recommend a preferred surgical technique in pati...
Article
Full-text available
Surgical site infection (SSI) remains the most frequent complication after colorectal resection. The role of sutures coated with antimicrobial agents such as triclosan in reducing SSI is controversial. This was a multi-center randomized controlled trial with patients and outcome assessors blinded to treatment. The study was performed in four univer...
Article

Desmoid tumours are benign, myofibroblastic stromal neoplasms common in Gardner's syndrome, which is a subtype of familial adenomatous polyposis characterized by colonic polyps, osteomas, thyroid cancer, epidermoid cysts, fibromas and sebaceous cysts. The primary treatment is surgery, followed by adjuvant radiotherapy, but the local recurrence rate...
Article
Full-text available
Since Baskin et al. reported the first documented case of failure of a laparoscopically-induced ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VP) in 1998, the cerebrospinal fluid shunt has been generally considered a relative contraindication to laparoscopy. Although the literature is limited there is a small body of evidence indicating that it is safe to perform la...
Article
Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) is a major field of study in small bowel transplantation because of its implications regarding intestinal immunity. In this study, we have introduced some variations to the described models of IRI in pigs to make possible a complete isolation of the small bowel for IRI studies. In swine, two anatomical barriers mak...

Full-text available
In the last two decades, animal models have become important tools in understanding and treating pain, and in predicting analgesic efficacy. Although rodent models retain a dominant role in the study of pain mechanisms, large animal models may predict human biology and pharmacology in certain pain conditions more accurately. Taking into considerati...
Article
Full-text available
Small caliber vessels substitutes still remain an unmet clinical need; few autologous substitutes are available, while synthetic grafts show insufficient patency in the long term. Decellularization is the complete removal of all cellular and nuclear matters from a tissue while leaving a preserved extracellular matrix representing a promising tool f...
Article
Living-related donor liver transplantation is the newest and both technically and ethically most challenging evolution in liver transplantation and has contributed to reduction in donor shortage. We briefly report the technical aspects of surgical procedures performed to achieve a partial graft from a live donor. Eighty-four adult and two pediatric...
Article
The shortage of organs in the last 20 years is stimulating the development of new strategies to expand the pool of donors. The harvesting of a graft from non-heart-beating donors (NHBDs) has been successfully proposed for kidney and liver transplantation. To our knowledge, no studies are available for small bowel transplantation using NHBDs. In an...

Even though the relationship between certain bacterial infections and neoplastic lesions of the colon is well-recognized, this knowledge has not been sufficiently translated into routine practice yet. We describe the case of a 51-year-old man who was admitted to our Surgical Department due to rectal bleeding and abdominal pain. Preoperative colonos...
Article
Malononitrilamide 715 (FK778) is a new class of immunosuppressant, derived from the active metabolite of leflunomide A77 1726. We investigated the efficacy of two different immunosuppressive induction protocols with tacrolimus plus FK778 followed by FK778 monotherapy. In a swine model of small bowel transplantation, we observed three groups, divide...
Article
The main goals for a successful small bowel transplantation (SBTx) are the control of acute rejection and maintenance of the mucosal barrier, which plays a key role in preventing bacterial translocation and preserving absorptive capacity. According to recent evidence that sustaining enteral nutrition (EN) as rehabilitative therapy improves the inte...
Article
Malononitrilamide 715 (FK778), a new low-molecular weight immunosuppressant, inhibits both T-cell and B-cell function by acting on the pathway for de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis. Pyrimidines are important for intestinal trophism; their inhibition may predispose to metabolic and functional impairments, such as diarrhea and malabsorption. In this st...
Article
Malononitrilamide 715 (FK778) is a new class of low molecular weight immunosuppressant. Experimental studies in heart, liver, and kidney transplantation have shown a strong synergism when FK778 is used in combination with tacrolimus and when its administration is delayed by 7 days after the transplant. Following this indication, in a swine model of...
Article
The intestine is a highly immunogenic organ that requires heavy immunosuppression (IS); therefore corticosteroid withdrawal after clinical small bowel transplantation (SBT) has not been standardized. In this study, we compared different immunosuppressive regimens (none with steroid or induction treatment) in a SBT pig model. Large White unrelated p...
Article
As intestinal grafts require heavy immunosuppression, there are no reports of immunosuppression withdrawal after clinical small bowel transplantation. In this large-animal study, we investigated the occurrence of graft rejection in intestinal-transplanted pigs after withdrawal. Large-White unrelated piglets were transplanted and divided in three gr...
Article
In a swine model of orthotopic small bowel transplantation, we assessed the efficacy of combined immunosuppressive therapy with low-dose tacrolimus plus FK778, compared with high-dose tacrolimus monotherapy. The small bowel was replaced in 23 piglets: group 1 (n = 5), no immunosuppression; group 2 (n = 12), oral tacrolimus to maintain whole blood t...
Article
Two different models of kidney transplantation have been compared using 3 different techniques. The kidney grafts were procured from living donors (laparoscopic or laparotomic technique) and from cadaveric donors. Twenty-four outbred piglets (Large White, weight range 24-27 kg) underwent kidney transplantation. We divided the recipients into 2 grou...
