A new surgical technique was developed in Parma for the treatment of varicose veins in the lower limbs.

In the cases of insufficiency of the great saphenous vein, the classic surgical treatment involves stripping with a crossectomy (which consists in cutting the groin) to abolish the reflux which from the femoral vein goes into saphenous during the upright position and causes varicose veins.
The surgeon Paolo Casoni, director of the Poli-lymphological Center of the Piccole Figlie Hospital, has tried another way: remove the saphenous vein without intervening with the groin cut.

The concept of herd immunity - the principle by which a high percentage of vaccinates prevents infectious agents from circulating and triggering epidemics - we have written several times.

From hospitals to the kitchen: antibiotic resistance can reach us even where you do not expect it. Between 5,000 and 7,000 deaths a year in hospital, says the SIMIT (Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases) patients with compromised immune systems who lose their lives not for the pathology for which they were hospitalized, but because in the hospital they were infected by a bacterium that does not respond to antibiotics.
