AbstractSplenic artery pseudoaneurysm (SAPA) is a relatively infrequently encountered but clinically important vascular change, because it carries a high risk of rupture that warrants prompt treatment regardless of its size. Thus, sufficient knowledge is indispensable when seeing chronic pancreatitis patients or post-traumatic patients. Here, we report two such cases. The first case was a 52-year-old woman known to have chronic pancreatitis who presented with hematemesis and hemodynamic instability in which X-ray computed tomography (CT) and color Doppler sonography (CDS) had difficulty visualizing slow blood flow in SAPA,...

CONCLUSION: On time diagnosis of pancreatic trauma, especially in polytrauma patients, continues to remain a challenge for trauma surgeons. Main pancreatic duct injury is an important prognostic factor and the major one determining therapeutic approaches. Adequate surgical approaches decrease morbidity and mortality in pancreatic trauma.

Authors: Bajpayee AG, De la Vega RE, Scheu M, Varady NH, Yannatos IA, Brown LA, Krishnan Y, Fitzsimons TJ, Bhattacharya P, Frank EH, Grodzinsky AJ, Porter RM Abstract Disease-modifying osteoarthritis drugs (DMOADs) should reach their intra-tissue target sites at optimal doses for clinical efficacy. The dense, negatively charged matrix of cartilage poses a major hindrance to the transport of potential therapeutics. In this work, electrostatic interactions were utilised to overcome this challenge and enable higher uptake, full-thickness penetration and enhanced retention of dexamethasone (Dex) inside rabbit cartilage...
