Safety and effectiveness of dabigatran in routine clinical practice: the RE-COVERY DVT/PE study
JOURNAL OF THROMBOSIS AND THROMBOLYSIS, v.53, n.2, p.399-409, 2022
RE-COVERY DVT/PE is a two-phase, international, observational study of anticoagulant therapy in patients with deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE). The objective of the second phase was to compare the safety and effectiveness of dabigatran versus a vitamin K antagonist (VKA) ov...
Histopathological factors versus margin size in single colorectal liver metastases: Does a 1-cm margin size matter?
SCANDINAVIAN JOURNAL OF SURGERY, v.111, n.1, article ID 14574969211069329, 8p, 2022
Background and objective: The ideal margin width for surgical resection of colorectal liver metastases has been extensively studied, but not sufficiently in accordance with other pathological factors. The aim of this study was to assess for the first time the prognostic impact of margin widths ac...

ABCD-ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS DE CIRURGIA DIGESTIVA-BRAZILIAN ARCHIVES OF DIGESTIVE SURGERY, v.34, n.3, article ID e1588, 2p, 2021
PROTOCOL FOR LIVER TRANSPLANTATION IN UNRESECTABLE COLORECTAL METASTASIS
ABCD-ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS DE CIRURGIA DIGESTIVA-BRAZILIAN ARCHIVES OF DIGESTIVE SURGERY, v.34, n.4, article ID e1625, 5p, 2021
BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common neoplasm, and half of the patients with CRC develop liver metastasis. The best prognostic factor for colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) is the possibility of performing a resection with free margins; however, most of them remain unresec...
LAPAROSCOPIC LIVER RESECTION FOR BENIGN TUMORS: THE CURRENT POSITION
ABCD-ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS DE CIRURGIA DIGESTIVA-BRAZILIAN ARCHIVES OF DIGESTIVE SURGERY, v.34, n.4, article ID e1641, 6p, 2021
BACKGROUND: The main indications of the use of laparoscopic liver surgery (LLS), in the early days, were benign liver lesions. As LLS became more popular, indications for malignant diseases outnumbered those for benign ones. This study aims to rule out the indications and results of LLS for the t...
PROTOCOL FOR LIVER TRANSPLANTATION IN HILAR CHOLANGIOCARCINOMA
ABCD-ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS DE CIRURGIA DIGESTIVA-BRAZILIAN ARCHIVES OF DIGESTIVE SURGERY, v.34, n.3, 2021
Background: Hilar cholangiocarcinoma represents more than half of all cholangiocarcinoma cases, having poor prognosis and presenting a median overall survival after diagnosis of 12-24 months. In patients who have unresectable tumors with a better prognosis, the proposal to perform liver transplan...
Banana green peels extract protects against nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in high-fat-fed mice through modulation of lipid metabolism and inflammation
PHYTOTHERAPY RESEARCH, v.36, n.2, p.951-962, 2022
We investigate the effect of the banana green peels extract (BPE) as a preventive treatment against NAFLD in high-fat diet fed mice. Mice received daily doses of 100 or 250 mg/kg of BPE for 12 weeks along with the high-fat diet. BPE reduced weight gain (p < .0001), adipose tissue hypertrophy (p <...
Endothelial injury in COVID-19 and septic patients
MICROVASCULAR RESEARCH, v.140, article ID 104303, 5p, 2022
Systemic inflammatory response, as observed in sepsis and severe COVID-19, may lead to endothelial damage. Therefore, we aim to compare the extent of endothelial injury and its relationship to inflammation in both diseases. We included patients diagnosed with sepsis (SEPSIS group, n = 21), mild C...
Biomechanical Analysis of Cadaveric Thoracic Aorta Zones: The Isthmus is the Weakest Region
ANNALS OF VASCULAR SURGERY, v.77, p.263-273, 2021
Background: The thoracic aorta is a site of multiple pathological processes, such as aneurysms and dissections. When considering the development of endovascular devices, this vessel has been extensively manipulated because of aortic diseases, as well as to serve as a route for procedures involvin...
Efficacy and safety of a device used to prevent fogging and residue buildup on surgical optics during video-assisted thoracic surgical procedures (LacrimaSurg): a pilot in vivo study in 30 patients
SURGICAL ENDOSCOPY AND OTHER INTERVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES, v.36, n.2, p.1683-1687, 2022
Introduction Nowadays the majority of the surgical procedures are video surgeries. Despite technological advances, some problems remain. The buildup of residues in front of the lens is an example of this problem. To solve it, Abreu et al. (Surg Technol Int 26:43-47, 2015) developed LacrimaSurg, w...
