Tumor cerebri: Metastatic renal cell carcinoma with dural venous sinus compression leading to intracranial hypertension; a case report.

CONCLUSIONS: Venous outflow obstruction often presents with an acute symptomatology including infarcts, hemorrhages, and seizures, but only rarely does it cause the progressive development of raised ICP. The sinister presentation of our patient's pathology stemmed from local mass effect caused by a tumor that has hitherto not been reported to cause intracranial hypertension (IH) and was best elucidated using magnetic resonance venography (MRV).

Authors: Schulte C, Zeller T Abstract Cardiovascular (CV) risk assessment is based on the utilization of risk scores, enabling clinicians to estimate an individual's risk to develop CV pathologies and events. Such risk scores comprise classic CV risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, hypertension, and blood cholesterol levels. Recently, other CV biomarkers such as cardiac troponins have been suggested and evaluated as alternative biomarkers not only in the acute diagnostic setting of myocardial infarction, but also as markers for risk stratification in the general population. In this review, we summarize the curre...

Authors: Qin H, Wen DY, Que Q, Zhou CY, Wang XD, Peng YT, He Y, Yang H, Liao BM Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is generally considered one of the most common gastrointestinal malignant tumors, characterized by high invasiveness and metastatic rate, as well as insidious onset. A relationship between carcinogenicity and aberrant microRNA-139-5p (miR-139-5p) expression has been identified in multiple tumors while the specific molecular mechanisms of miR-139-5p in HCC have not yet been thoroughly elucidated. A meta-analysis of available data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), Gene Expression Omnibus, ArrayEx...

Previous studies have demonstrated that bone marrow-derived cells (BMDCs) possess the capability of differentiating into stromal cells. However, the characteristics and roles of BMDCs in oral squamous cell carcinoma remain unclear. The current study therefore investigated their locations and features by tracing green fluorescent protein (GFP)-labeled BMDCs in a transplantation mouse model. After irradiation, BALB-c ...

Authors: Zhang H, Wang R, Wang M Abstract Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is a common tumor of the digestive system with poor prognosis. Studies have shown that aberrant microRNA (miRNA) expression can affect CRC progression by regulating target genes. In the present study, we investigated the functional roles and potential mechanisms of miR-331-3p in CRC. The expression of miR-331-3p and neuropilin-2 (NRP2) in CRC was detected by RT-qPCR. Then, Transwell assays were conducted to investigate the influence of miR-331-3p on CRC cell invasion and migration abilities. Luciferase reporter assays were performed to determine t...

Authors: Takeuchi N, Koike K, Yoshida S, Fujiwara M Abstract Recent therapeutic advancements have prolonged the survival duration of patients with metastatic or recurrent colorectal cancer even during salvage treatment. Although treatment with regorafenib and trifluridine/tipiracil combination has exhibited apparent survival benefits, clear and objective evidence of a response to these drugs is scarce. Herein, the present study reports the case of a patient with rectal cancer refractory to multiple surgical interventions and standard chemotherapy. Treatment with regorafenib resulted in immediate improvement of resp...

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been widely used in patients with ruptured liver tumors. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the benefits and safety of conventional TACE and the disease prognosis following TACE and surgery with regard to the progression of spontaneously ruptured HCC. The clinical data of 70 patients diagnosed with spontaneous rupture of HCC were retrospectively reviewed. The m...

Authors: Zhang C, Wang N, Su X, Li K, Yu D, Ouyang A Abstract The aim of the present study was to examine the value of FORCE dual-energy CT in grading the clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). A total of 35 cases of ccRCC were included. Hematoxylin and eosin staining was performed, and the cases were divided into low- (Fuhrman I-II) and high-grade (Fuhrman III-IV) groups. FORCE dual-energy CT parameters, including virtual network computing CT value (VNCV), iodine overlay value (IOV), mixed energy CT value (MEV), iodine concentration (IC), normalized iodine concentration (NIC), NIC based on aorta (NICA), NIC base...
