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

Upregulation of thyroid hormone receptor interactor 13 is associated with human hepatocellular carcinoma. Oncol Rep. 2018 Oct 04;: Authors: Ju L, Li X, Shao J, Lu R, Wang Y, Bian Z Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Thyroid hormone receptor interactor 13 (TRIP13) has been reported to promote nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ). However, the role of TRIP13 in the molecular pathogenesis of HCC remains to be elucidated. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role and potential mechanism of TRIP13 in ...

Authors: Zhang Y, Pan J, Xu D, Yang Z, Sun J, Sun L, Wu Y, Qiao H Abstract Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) are promising diagnostic markers in various types of cancers, including papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). However, there is sparse information reported with regards to miRNA expression in papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) or concerning the role of a combination of miRNAs and ultrasound (US) in the diagnosis of PTMC before surgery. Therefore, we designed a study that aimed to evaluate miRNA expression levels and their potential associations with US findings and determine whether miRNAs could be used as di...

Authors: Niedzielska M, Israelsson E, Angermann B, Sidders BS, Clausen M, Catley M, Malhotra R, Dumont C Abstract As we learn more about how immune responses occur in situ, it is becoming clear that each organ/tissue is characterized with its own anatomy and microenvironment which may affect and even determine the outcome of the immune responses. With emerging data from animal studies showing that regulatory T cells infiltrating non-lymphoid tissues exhibit unique phenotypes and transcriptional signatures and display functions beyond their well-established suppressive roles, there is an urgent need to explore the f...

Providing analgesia for patients with anterior rib and sternum fracture has been addressed from various types of modalities. Regional anesthesia via epidurals or peripheral nerve blocks, opiates, and other forms of multimodal pain regimens have been used. However, in the polytraumatic injury patient, positioning for an epidural may be problematic, and a predominantly opiate-based treatment plan may compromise respiratory status. In this case series, we describe the pectointercostal fascial block as another tool to treat patients with anterior rib and sternal fracture with polytraumatic injuries. All 3 of the block’s ...
