Mehran, Ara A. Vaporciyan, Garrett L. Walsh, Jack A. Roth, Stephen G. Swisher, Mara B. AntonoffBackgroundGround glass opacities (GGOs) on computed tomography (CT) have gained significant recent attention, with unclear incidence and epidemiologic patterns. Natural language processing (NLP) is a powerful computing tool that collects variables from unstructured data fields. Our objective was to characterize trends of GGO detection usi...
Conclusion: Without detailed assessments with preoperative CBCT, the surgery might have been done with dissection of only the anterior radicular vein in the shallow layers. For identification of the draining vein located deep in the surgical field, such as the cranio-cervical junction, careful assessments using 3D CBCT images are important. PMID: 30775059 [PubMed]
Conclusions: When cerebral hemorrhage occurs in a cancer patient, we must consider the possibility of hemorrhage due to a brain metastasis. PMID: 30775057 [PubMed]
This study compared the preventive effects of silver diammine fluoride (SDF) and potassium iodide (KI) in comparison with fluoride varnish. SDF has been known to arrest caries but darkens the tooth. KI creates a precipitate with SDF that reduces the discoloration, but its effects on SDF efficacy in terms of preventing demineralization of at-risk root dentin surfaces is unknown. Bovine root dentin blocks were randomly distributed into four groups and subjected to a pretreatment in each group (n = 8); Control: deionized water (DIW); F-Varnish: 5% sodium fluoride varnish: 38% Saforide; SDF+KI: SDF followed by saturated soluti...
ConclusionsCt.Th and Ct.Po were accurately predicted at the human tibia ex vivo using a transverse isotropic free plate model with invariant matrix stiffness. The model-based predictions were not further enhanced when we accounted for variations in axial tissue stiffness as reflected by the acoustic impedance from SAM.
Authors: Blum A, Pastukh N, Sirchan R, Blum N, Chernikoff L, Vaispapir V Abstract BACKGROUND: Endothelial progenitor cells may have a role in ongoing endothelial repair. Impaired mobilization or depletion of these cells may contribute to progression of vascular disease. Our hypothesis was that endothelial progenitor cells would be suppressed in patients with acute cerebrovascular event based on our previous study that found severe endothelial dysfunction in those patients. OBJECTIVES: To study the ability of patients with acute stroke to build colonies of endothelial progenitor cells. METHODS: We studied th...
ConclusionSurgical correction provides a more effective outcome in patients with rhinogenic headache. However, it is difficult to convince that headache may improve with surgery in these patients especially with isolated mucosal contact point and without nasal obstruction. In order to prove the benefit of surgery, we believe that medical treatment can be used as a guide.

ConclusionCLN involvement and high preoperative tumor burden are independently associated with decreased survival after complete cytoreduction for OC. CLN involvement is a marker of diffuse disease and an independent risk factor for early recurrent disease.
