CONCLUSIONS: Among ischemic stroke patients, higher omentin-1 levels were inversely associated with carotid plaque instability, but not associated with moderate-severe carotid stenosis or occlusion. Omentin-1 may represent a biomarker for predicting carotid plaque instability of acute ischemic stroke patients. PMID: 29225325 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This article highlights the subtle impact that manufacturing steps have on an overall cable cost. He demonstrates how adding additional colors to the cable results in the non-obvious effect of lowering the overall assembly cost. Understanding the manufacturing process is always valuable. Customers should visit their suppliers whenever possible. Sometimes seeing the equipment in operation makes all the difference in understanding how a product is made and the impact that a design change might have. Hitachi Metals and Hitachi Cable America specialize in the field of very small cables and cable bundles. Hitachi Cable Am...
Conclusions Right heart catheterization through the antecubital fossa veins appears to be feasible and safe. Further controlled studies are required to establish the best access site to perform right heart catheterization.
We presented a rare diagnosis of pulsatile anterior neck swelling where a high riding brachiocephalic artery needs to be considered as a differential diagnosis. This 54-year-old lady presented with anterior neck swelling for one year which appear to be pulsatile, soft and non-tender mass. Ultrasound and Doppler scan, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) scan revealed that the neck swelling corresponds to the high riding brachiocephalic artery. Hence, ultrasound scan is essential to detect any vascular lesion prior to biopsy or fine needle aspiration cytology as to avoid catastrophic hemorrhage.
AbstractUsing the thyromental distance (TMD) measured based on the ultrasonographic location of the thyroid cartilage prominence as the criterion, we investigated the accuracy of TMD measurement by surface landmark identification of the thyroid cartilage prominence. Twenty-nine anesthetist resident volunteers were recruited, including 10 first-year residents, 9 second-year residents and 10 third-year residents. Each volunteer measured the other 28 volunteers’ TMD. Then, the thyroid cartilage prominence of each volunteer was identified by ultrasonography of the junction of the vocal cord and thyroid cartilage, a...

ConclusionEUS‐guided FNA is a superior method of assessing solid pancreatic lesion and pancreatic malignancy with better diagnostic yield and higher sensitivity than EUS‐CNB.
BACKGROUND: The impact of high-intensity, repetitive training on the fingers of adolescent climbers is relatively unknown. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate this effect by ultrasound (US) and to confirm some findings by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). ...
We present a case of enterogenous cyst in an adult female who underwent a resection of the tumour. RESULTS: After two years of observation, there is no evidence of tumour recurrence. PMID: 29221426 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
