ConclusionThis is the first ever study reporting the changes in cerebral metabolic activity and multi ‐frame static brain18F FDG PET imaging after L2 DRG stimulation for discogenic low back pain. Predominantly an increased metabolic activity in nociceptive brain matrices are seen with an increased in F18F FDG uptake following L2 DRG stimulation.

CONCLUSIONS: In adults with severe chronic rhinosinusitis and nasal polyps, using regular topical nasal steroids, dupilumab improves disease-specific HRQL compared to placebo, and reduces the extent of the disease as measured on a CT scan. It probably also improves symptoms and generic HRQL and there is no evidence of an increased risk of serious adverse events. It may reduce the need for further surgery. There may be little or no difference in the risk of nasopharyngitis. In similar patients, mepolizumab may improve both disease-specific and generic HRQL. It is uncertain whether it reduces the need for...

A 38-year-old nulligravid female with a longstanding history of severe endometriosis requiring four previous excisional procedures, including ileocecal resection and reanastomosis, developed severe epigastric and right upper quadrant pain without inciting incident. Abdominal upright film revealed multiple dilated small bowel loops with air/fluid levels.  Conservative management with bowel decompression was initiated. CT scan two days later demonstrated dilated loops of small bowel consistent with a small-bowel obstruction with a transition point at the ileocecal junction near the anastomotic line from her previous resection.

Despite the self-limiting nature of lateral epicondylitis (LE) the disease has a prolonged course in some patients. Currently there is no optimal treatment of choice for these patients. We treated 6 elbows in 5 patients with LE with free fat grafting. All patients had symptomatic LE (symptom duration>2 y) and magnetic resonance imaging scan consistent with LE, and no finding of osteoarthrosis of the elbow joint, ligament injury, or other condition causing palpable lateral elbow pain. The fat graft was harvested from the abdomen, centrifuged or decanted and 10 mL was injected in and around the lateral epico...

ConclusionsThe single-port approach has advantages as easier surgical planning and transition for combined and multi-quadrants surgeries: faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain and need for opioids, and excellent cosmetic outcome. We suggest that combined procedures should be performed only in high volume institutions by surgeons with vast experience in robotic surgery in selected patients.ResumenIntroducciónPresentar el primer caso de cirugía multicuadrante concomitante —prostatectomía radical robótica y nefrectomía parcial robótica izquierda— realizadas con t&eac...

In Korea, insurance coverage of ultrasound examination has been gradually expanding in accordance with measures to enhance Korean National Insurance Coverage since 2017 to 2021, and which will continue until 2021. Full coverage of health insurance for POCUS in the emergency and critical care areas was implemented in July 201...

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...
