This Girl Tr òn: The Forgotten Subject of Vietnam War Photographer Larry Burrows
Larry Burrows was a seasoned veteran of the Vietnam War when, in early 1968, he met 12-year-old Nguyễn Thị Tròn. Operating out of Saigon, the southern Republic of Vietnam’s capital, the photographer had been covering the conflict for LIFE magazine since 1962. He shadowed American troops, documenting ferocious firefights, surviving hours in the air with helicopter-gunship crews, and freeze-framing harrowing moments of bravery and despair, exhaustion, and appalling violence in combat zones. Though much of his best work had been shot in the thick of the action, he had come to be haunted by the trauma visited upon the Vietnamese people he described as non-political, “simple and hardworking.” Most, he believed, were steamrollered by both the South and the communist North to “bear pain in silence.” Burrows noted their stoicism with awe. “I was walking the streets of Saigon, as I’ve been doing for six years, thinking I’d never really told of the misery and suffering,” the photographer later recalled of meeting Tròn. “Round a corner, in a Red Cross compound, two Vietnamese children were rocking back and forth in a swing […] Walking along the fencing I could see their small bodies rocking to and fro. Now I had a clearer view. They were not the same as any other two youngsters, for they only had one leg between them, and it was Tron who propelled the swing.” Tròn had lost her right leg ju...
Conclusions Fasting HPP levels are similar in CP, PDAC, and controls regardless of glycemic status.
We present the case of a patient with CP who was approved to undergo TP with IAT (TPIAT) but was intraoperatively discovered to have a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. The case illustrates a number of important surgical decision-making considerations for patients undergoing TPIAT and should help guide surgeons should they be presented with this clinical scenario. We stress the importance of vigilance for possible malignancy and to consider an intraoperative biopsy to further investigate unexpected findings that might represent an occult pancreatic malignancy in patients with CP undergoing TPIAT.

This study aimed to evaluate the difference and consistency between single-photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography (SPECT-CT) and MRI in diagnosing osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs) and identifying active lesions. Patients and methods All 46 patients underwent SPECT-CT and MRI examinations. The pain vertebral body and pain sites were determined using both MRI and SPECT-CT during percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP). The differences before and after treatment were assessed using visual analog scale scores and evaluated using a paired t-test. Furthermore, the difference and conformity of SPECT...
