Imaging and histology in the diagnosis of multiple papillary fibroelastomas in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Case report.

Imaging and histology in the diagnosis of multiple papillary fibroelastomas in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Case report. Med Ultrason. 2017 Nov 29;19(4):454-456 Authors: Ionescu AA, Radulescu B, Herlea V, Miclea I, Parepa I, Bubenek S, Popescu BA, Ginghina C, Jurcut R Abstract Papillary fibroelastomas (PFEs) are one of the most frequent primary cardiac tumors and occur more often in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). PFEs have been linked to an increased risk of neurological events. We report a case of a 59-year-old woman with HOCM in whom echocardiography (transthoracic and transesophageal, using 2D and 3D techniques) revealed multiple masses in various locations in the left cardiac chambers. Surgical excision of the cardiac tumors and aortic valve replacement was performed and the pathologic report confirmed the diagnosis of PFEs. Patient followup using ultrasonography is crucial since recurrence is a possibility. Current cardiac ultrasound techniques are essential for diagnosing and for guiding the management of these conditions. PMID: 29197925 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to characterize the force–length relationship of muscles involved in wrist and metacarpophalangeal flexion. Methods Eleven participants performed two sessions: (i) one for the wrist flexor muscles and (ii) one for the finger flexor muscles. For each session, the participants performed two maximal voluntary contractions and then two progressive isometric ramps from 0% to 100% of their maximal force capacity at five different wrist/metacarpophalangeal angles. Torque, kinematic, and electromyographic data were recorded. An ultrasound scanner was used to measure the myotendinous junction displacement ...

There have been some reports of hepatocellular carcinoma occurring after the Fontan procedure (FP), and we encountered a case of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) after the FP. We herein report the case of 33-year-old man who developed ICC after receiving the FP. At five years of age, the patient underwent the original FP. At 16 years of age, he r...

CONCLUSION: Once considered extremely rare, AMIC seems to be underrecognized, probably because of the false attribution of heart failure or hypertrophy to other causes. Certain biomarkers (cTnI, BNP) and imaging findings may lead to early diagnosis and enhance survival. PMID: 30323009 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: We identified potential elemental ultrasonographic abnormalities and entheseal sites that could distinguish PsA and controls. This information will contribute to the development of a new sonographic score for assessment of enthesitis in patients with PsA. PMID: 30323008 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Woodrum DA, Kawashima A, Gorny KR, Mynderse LA Abstract In 2018, the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and 29,430 will die due to the prostate cancer in the United States (Siegel et al., CA Cancer J Clin 67:7-30, 2018). Many men with prostate cancer are often managed with aggressive therapy including radiotherapy or surgery. No matter how expertly done, these therapies carry significant risk and morbidity to the patient's health related quality of life with impact on sexual, urinary and bowel function (Potosky et al., J Natl Cancer Inst 96:1...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common primary cardiac muscle disorder.It is one of the  extensively studied medical  entity in terms of pathology, genetics, electrophysiology and treatment.Though it has dramatic myocardial  phenotypic expression , longevity  can be near normal  except in a minority who are prone for LV dysfunction and SCD due to the indirect electrical instability.These arrhythmia arise due to myocardial disarray , micro vascular disease or fibrosis. NSVT  by definition is runs of VT at a rate of> 100 /mt occurring less than 30 seconds. How common is NSVT in ...
