What Are Some Criteria For Varicocele Evaluation?

Discussion Varicoceles are caused by high venous back pressure which causes a tortuous dilatation of the testicular veins (pampiniform plexus) of the spermatic cord. They occur more on the left than right because the left renal vein has a higher pressure than the inferior vena cava which drain the left and right gonadal veins respectively. Varicoceles are not very common in young children (3% in

AbstractFilter-no reflow (FNR) is a phenomenon wherein flow improves after the retrieve of distal protection. Near-infrared spectroscopy with intravascular ultrasound (NIRS –IVUS) enables lipid detection. We evaluated the predictors of FNR during PCI using NIRS–IVUS. Thirty-two patients who underwent PCI using the Filtrap® for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) were enrolled. The culprit plaque (CP) was observed using NIRS–IVUS. Total lipid-core burden index (T-LCBI) and maximal LCBI over any 4-mm segment (max-LCBI4mm) within CP were evaluated. T-LCBI/max–LCBI4mm ratio within CP was calculated as an ...

Conclusions: Unlike hypothyroidism associated with hemiagenesis in transcription factor knockout mice, hemiagenesis in euthyroid NOD.H2h4 mice occurs spontaneously and is phenotypically similar to that occasionally observed in humans.Eur Thyroid J

Neurotrophins such as nerve growth factor (NGF) have long been identified as drivers of neurogenesis during development and regeneration, but intriguingly they were also known to be expressed in human tumors where they can stimulate cancer cell growth. Recent findings have un...

Its extent and prevalence are not known. We aimed to assess aortic dimensions and elasticity and to find predictors of aortic dilatation.MethodsA total of 126 adults were prospectively included after TOF repair and compared to 63 gender- and age-matched controls.

CONCLUSION: - in cases of a bilateral second branchial arch sinus, the branchio-oto-renal (BOR) or branchio-otic (BO) syndromes must be excluded; - ultrasound scan can be used for the thorough evaluation of the sinus anatomic course and the relationship with the adjacent anatomic structures; - rompt diagnosis and early therapeutic intervention, even during neonatal period, ensures an uneventful post-operation course.

Lowering the default number of opioid pills prescribed through an electronic medical record system to patients undergoing outpatient operations can significantly reduce the mean amount of opioid analgesia prescriptions, reports astudy published today inJAMA Surgery. The findings point to a low-cost and potentially scalable intervention to continue to decrease the overprescribing of opioids.On May 18, 2017, the Yale New Haven Health System, which uses a unified electronic medical record (EMR) system, lowered the default number of pills on all electronic opioid prescriptions from 30 to 12. To evaluate the impact of this chan...
