Their causes include but not limited to neoplasm, infection, stone, and inflammation. Sublingual salivary gland enlargements are commonly caused by ranula, while neoplasms rarely occur and if found they tend to be malignant. Another cause is idiopathic hyperplasia of the sublingual gland (IHSG), which is characterized as asymptomatic swelling of unknown cause, protrude fro...

We report a case of a 30 years old woman who underwent surgical resection for a well-differentiated liposarcoma. CT scan revealed that the mass invaded the left perirenal fascia and displaced the descending colon, pancreas, and duodenum. Complete resection of tumour masses were performed and we opted against nephrectomy due to the tumor's histologic type, the patient's young age, and increased morbidity.DiscussionTreatment for Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma involves R0 resection. In cases where the tumor invades into a nearby organ, it is necessary to weigh the benefit of free margin resection against the adversity of medical...

Inhibition of HIF-1α restrains fracture healing via regulation of autophagy in a rat model. Exp Ther Med. 2019 Mar;17(3):1884-1890 Authors: Qiao J, Huang J, Zhou M, Cao G, Shen H Abstract It has been demonstrated that bone fracture is associated with the activation of autophagy, and upregulation of autophagy could promote fracture healing. Previous study by our group demonstrated that activating the HIF-1α pathway via administration of cobalt (II) chloride (CoCl2) could promote fracture healing in vivo. However, the role of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) in autophagy remai...

Authors: Yu YB, Song Y, Xu JB, Qi FZ Abstract Bouveret's syndrome refers to gastric outlet obstruction caused by the formation of a cholecystoduodenal fistula with subsequent migration and impaction of a large gallstone into the duodenum. A case of a 59-year-old male who presented to our institution with consistent abdominal pain and nausea is reported herein. Bouveret's syndrome was diagnosed after conducting a computed tomography scan. Surgery was performed wherein gallstone removal was followed by cholecystectomy and fistula repair associated with a pyloric bypass via gastro-jejunostomy. The patient recovered we...

DiscussionThis work defines a standardised micro-CT method for assessing the zebrafish spine. In addition, spinal parameter values that can be considered normal were determined, namely, less than 30° of thoracic kyphosis in the sagittal plane and less than 10° in the coronal plane. Our method was effective in assessing induced spinal deformities on micro-CT reconstructions. We hope it will prove of value in future studies of the zebrafish model.Level of evidenceIV.
