ConclusionIn hemodynamically stable patients presenting with penetrating abdominal trauma, CT is indicated and the majority of injuries can be managed conservatively. If surgical treatment is required, diagnostic laparoscopy for stable patients is feasible to avoid nontherapeutic laparotomy.

Authors: Pothukuchi VK, Kumar A, Teja C, Verma A Abstract Snakebite is an important medical problem in India. Among their various manifestations, cerebral complications are uncommonly found in literature. Moreover, Ischemic stroke following snake bite is quite rare. Here we report a case series of two such cases that developed neurological manifestations following Russell's viper bite. On computerized tomography (CT) scan of brain; cerebral infarcts were revealed. Their likely mechanisms are discussed in present study which include disseminated intravascular coagulation, toxin induced vasculitis and endothelial dam...

We report a case of a 51-year-old man with NPC. PET-CT scan revealed a space-occupying lesion in the left lung, and the pathologic result confirmed the occupying lesion originated from NPC. Meanwhile, both immunohistochemistry and PCR revealed that the occupying lesion belonged to pMMR NPC. The lung lesions largely shrunk after chemoradiotherapy. One year later, MRI showed brain occupancy, and brain lesion resection surgery was performed subsequently. The resected tissue was also validated to be the metastatic lesion from NPC. After one month, the patient was examined again by PET-CT, which showed multiple metastases in th...

CONCLUSIONS Where a serious, extensive fragment of patellar cartilage is found, the fixation of cartilage with the use of transosseous PDS sutures brings very good and good results, without the necessity of another surgery, while the simultaneous treatment of medial patellar retinacula considerably decreases the risk of patellar re-dislocation, thus reducing the risk of further damage to cartilage of patelofemoral joint. The use of transosseous suture fixation is considered by the authors to be more appropriate than the use of screws, mostly because no further surgery to remove fixation screws is necessary. Key words: acut...

ConclusionsLongitudinal mp-MR and PET imaging enables thein vivo tumor characterization over time. While perfusion and cell density decreased, there was a non-uniform change of hypoxia observed during radiotherapy. To assess the potential impact with regard to more personalized treatment approaches, hypoxia imaging-based dose painting for cervix cancer requires further research.

Authors: Demiralp KÖ, Bayrak S, Orhan M, Alan A, Kurşun Çakmak EŞ, Orhan K Abstract BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anatomical features of lingual foramina and their bony canals in Anatolian ancient mandibles which belong to 9-10th century by using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: 58 ancient dry mandibles were scanned with CBCT. Lingual foramina were grouped into midline, paramedian, posterior foramina and combination of these groups. Midline group was also classified according to internal surface of the mandible (gonial tubercles). The incidenc...
