The role of adipocytokinic markers in the prognosis of survival and sepsis at critical postsurgical patients

Florescu Alexandru , Ristescu Irina , Grigoras Ioana , Mogos Voichita , Branisteanu Dumitru

The secretion of adipocytokines is influenced by fat mass, but also by various situations related to acute stress (food deprivation, or critical state related to inflamatory or infectious syndromes). Adipocytokinic secretory profile could be therefore used for the diagnosis of the type of critical state, as well for the evolution and survival prognosis of patients. The modifications of adipocytokinic markers during the first hours after surgical intervention are insufficiently...

Adipocytokines dynamics in patients operated for rectal neoplasm

Florescu Alexandru , Branisteanu Dumitru , Grigoras Ioana , Bilha Stefana , Dimofte Gabriel , Scripcariu Dragos V

Adipose tissue performs an important endocrine role, mediated by hormones (adipocytokines) which are specifically secreted by the adipocytes. Epidemiological data consistently show an association between weight gain and the risk of colorectal cancer in adults.This observation led to the evaluation of a possible linking role of adipocytokines with cancer pathogenesis. There are several studies that associate adipocytokines with colorectal malignancy, but few data about patients...

Ungureanu Maria-Christina , Luca Ioana , Grigoras Mihai , Gorduza Carmen , Vulpoi Carmen , Zbranca Eusecie

Infundibulohypophysitis is an unusual inflammatory condition that affects the infundibulum, the pituitary stalk and the neurohypophisis and may be a part of a range that includes lymphocityc hypophysitis. It occurs mainly in women and most often presents in later stages of pregnancy. Infundibilohypophysitis usually presents with diabetes insipidus. The case of a 30-year-old woman with diabetus insipidus diagnosticated in the third trimester of the pregnancy is reported. She wa...
