Surgical Residents Vulnerable to Malpractice Claims Surgical Residents Vulnerable to Malpractice Claims
Malpractice claims involving surgical residents during a 10-year period were frequently decided in favor of the plaintiff and associated with a median $900,000 payout.Medscape Medical News
Conclusions: PR in patients with end-stage lung disease awaiting lung transplantation on nocturnal NIV is feasible and is associated with improvements of exercise capacity and quality of life. Furthermore, despite more advanced lung disease, patients treated with NIV have an increased benefit of PR compared to patients without NIV while awaiting lung transplantation.Respiration
A common notion goes that an individual ’s environment tells a lot about them in terms of the extent of his or her knowledge. Theirexperiences shape a person ’s choices, desires, and wants in life. Growing up, I wanted to become a lawyer. However, my mother becamesick and I had to take care of her. She suffered a stroke partially incapacitated her, a condition that necessitated my help as her caregiver. This was a challenging experience for my family and I. I would take her for checkups, treatments, and other medical procedures. Watching the way nurses took care of the patients as if they were part of their fam...
In this study, we demonstrated that zero echo time (ZTE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide excellent image contrast for calcium phosphate cement (CPC) material restored in human teeth, and can also be used to follow longitudinally the degradation of CPC in teeth in vivo. We also evaluated the MR relaxation properties of CPC and dental tissues (i.e. dentin and enamel), and found that the newly proposed Gaussian augmentation of the mono‐exponential (GAME) model performed better than the mono‐exponential (ME) model for T2* fitting.

We present a case of high-grade undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma in the calf of a 48-year-old male that recurred as a thin, curvilinear “tail” of enhancing tissue at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with extremely indolent growth over a 7-year period. The unusual imaging finding of a slowly enlarging “tail” should not be dismissed as postoperative changes, even for a high-grade soft tissue sarcoma.
ConclusionThe shrinkage of osteochondromas appears less rare than was originally thought.
ConclusionHindfoot alignment can be estimated on MRI but the correlation between the values on HAV radiographs and MR images is only moderate with a tendency to increased positive values (valgization) on MR images.
We report two cases of patients with shoulder pain in which different radiological approaches were used with pathological confirmation in one of them. In the first case, MRI revealed significant bone involvement in the head of the humerus and cortical erosion of the greater tuberosity. A CT examination and a biopsy was necessary for a final diagnosis of inflammatory bone reaction from intraosseous migration of tendinous calcifications. In the second case, similar MRI findings prompted re-evaluation of imaging to make a diagnosis of intraosseous migration of tendinous calcifications, obviating the need to perform CT and bio...
