Lymphoepithelial cyst on the tongue: case report at unusual location
ABSTRACT Oral lymphoepithelial cyst (OLEC) is an uncommon lesion that develops in oral lymphoid tissue. The aim of the present study was to report a clinical case of OLEC in the tongue. A 22-year-old patient presented a nodular lesion, yellowish, with a softened consistency, measuring 0.5 cm in the ventral surface of the tongue. Under the clinical hypotheses of mucocele and OLEC, excisional biopsy was performed. The histopathological examination revealed a cystic lesion covered by a parakeratinized stratified squamous epithelium, which presented in its fibrous capsule a prominent lymphoid tissue. Based on the definitive diagnosis, surgical excision of the lesion was performed.RESUMO O cisto linfoepitelial oral (CLEO) é uma lesão incomum que se desenvolve no tecido linfoide oral. O objetivo do presente trabalho foi relatar um caso clínico de CLEO na língua. Paciente de 22 anos de idade exibia uma lesão nodular, de coloração amarelada e consistência amolecida, medindo 0,5 cm na região ventral de língua. Sob as hipóteses clínicas de mucocele e CLEO, foi realizada biópsia excisional. O exame histopatológico revelou lesão cística revestida por epitélio escamoso estratificado paraceratinizado, que apresentava em sua cápsula fibrosa tecido linfoide proeminente. Com base no diagnóstico definitiv o, foi realizada a excisão cirúrgica da les&a...
Conclusion: Surgical treatment of left ventricular reconstruction in candidates for heart transplantation is effective, efficient, and safe, providing adequate survival.
Conclusion: We conclude that in patients with acyanotic congenital cardiopathies submitted to total surgical correction, mean aortic clamping time around one hour, and cardiopulmonary bypass with moderate hypothermia, the HTK crystalloid cardioplegic solutio n offers the same myocardial protection as the cold-blood hyperkalemic cardioplegic solution analyzed, according to the variables considered in our study model.
Abstract Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the operative mortality rate and outcomes of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) between young and geriatric people in a single center. Methods: Eighty-five patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms who underwent EVAR between January 2012 and September 2016 were included. Outcomes were compared between two groups: the young (aged
Conclusion: Left atrial reduction and radiofrequency ablation concomitant with robotically assisted mi nimally invasive mitral valve surgery can be performed safely and effectively to eliminate AF and prevent recurrence.
Conclusion: The maximum relaxation at minimum and maximum therapeutic concentrations was obtained with amitriptyline, fluoxetine and tranylcypromine, and the minimum relaxation was obtained with venlafaxine. The relaxation responses were independent of the endothelium.
Abstract Objectives: To investigate the association between clinical hematologic parameters and saphenous vein graft failure after on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. Methods: A total of 1950 consecutive patients underwent isolated on-pump coronary artery surgery between November 2010 and February 2013. Of these, 284 patients met our inclusion criteria; their preoperative clinical hematological parameters were retrospectively obtained for this cohort study. And of them, 109 patients underwent conventional coronary angiography after graft failure was revealed by coronary computed tomography angiography. The primary endp...
Conclusion: The practice of (acute) aerobic exercise improved autonomic cardiac control in patients undergoing CABG.
Conclusion: Elevated anxiety levels in patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery have a negative effect through prolonged QT and P-wave dispersion times. Anxiolytic treatment before surgery may be useful to prevent ventricular and atrial arrhythmias and associated complications through decreasing the QT and P-wave dispersion duration.
