Complications and monitoring standards after elective craniotomy in Germany.
CONCLUSION: The undisputed gold standard of postoperative monitoring of neurosurgical patients undergoing elective surgery is still the intensive care unit. Although more flexible surveillance modalities are available, a cost-driven restructuring of postoperative monitoring and in particular reduction of the length of stay in hospital must be subjected to detailed scrutinization.

We report eight cases of intraosseous venous malformation that were inappropriately labelled as haemangioma by clinicians, pathologists, and radiologists.
Conclusions Leiomyoma is an important consideration when developing a differential diagnosis for primary benign masses in the hand. We hope that this comprehensive review can provide increased awareness of this tumor type.
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) remains one of the rarest and deadliest diseases. Pulmonary Capillary Hemangiomatosis (PCH) is one of the sub-classes of PH. It was identified using histological and molecular tools...
CONCLUSIONS: The exact diagnosis of these lesions is difficult due to their rarity and they must always be considered for differential diagnosis. PMID: 31697257 [PubMed - in process]
In this study, we investigated the clinicopathological and molecular features of 26 AHs. By Sanger sequencing and MassARRAY analysis, mutually exclusive mutations in exon 5 ofGNAQ,GNA11, andGNA14 were identified in 10, 5, and 5 tumors, respectively, of the 22 investigated tumors, with an overall mutation rate of 91%. No notable differences in the clinicopathological features were observed betweenGNAQ-,GNA11-, orGNA14-mutated tumors. Our results implicatedGNA11 mutations, as well as previously known mutations of its paraloguesGNAQ andGNA14, as essential drivers in the pathogenesis of AH.

Cardiac hemangiomas are rare cardiac neoplasia usually diagnosed in autopsies, from being asymptomatic to debuting with sudden death. The largest hemangioma published in the literature is of 130 mm size, we pr...
AbstractThe hemangioma is the most common solid lesion of the liver. Therefore, radiologists must know the typical and atypical imaging findings of this lesion in order to reach a correct diagnosis and avoid diagnostic errors. However, only few papers have comprehensively described the entire spectrum of atypical and uncommon imaging features. In this updated review, we provide the imaging features of hepatic hemangioma, in both typical and atypical forms, as well as its association with abnormalities in the adjacent hepatic parenchyma and other hepatic lesions, and its complications.
