ConclusionAlthough not highly specific, the presence of inspissated cyst fluid with fibrillary architecture should be recognized by cytopathologists and interpreted as at least “atypical” given the potential association with neoplastic mucinous cysts of the pancreas.

Conclusions Practice variability in catheterization after pelvic reconstructive and incontinence surgery is high. Distribution of catheterization type by specialty varies significantly, with clean-intermittent straight catheterization most prevalent. Future studies are necessary to establish a consensus on optimal catheterization management technique for patients with acute postoperative voiding dysfunction.

Conclusions:The present study shows that the slope of worsening of liver stiffness is greater in patients who will develop CFLD, suggesting that annual transient elastography may be useful to detect risk of severe liver disease at an earlier stage. Objectives: Cystic fibrosis–related liver disease (CFLD) can develop silently in early life and approximately 10% of children with cystic fibrosis (CF) become cirrhotic before adulthood. Clinical, biological, and ultrasound criteria used to define CFLD often reveal liver involvement at an advanced stage. The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the progression...

Conclusions:EUS diagnosed CP (≥4 features) in 31% and biliary abnormality in 3% children with ARP. EUS is safe, sensitive, and useful for early diagnosis of CP in children with ARP. Objectives: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an established tool for evaluation of adults with acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP) whereas data in pediatrics is limited. Our study assessed the role of EUS in identifying etiology including changes of chronic pancreatitis (CP) in children and adolescents with ARP. Methods: Children with ARP (≥2 episodes of acute pancreatitis [AP]) were prospectively evaluated with a detailed clinical pr...

This article discusses the evidence based recommended methods of pregnancy dating and biometric measurements. We address some confusing terms such as fetal growth ‘standards’ and fetal growth ‘references’ along with explaining the differences between prescriptive and descriptive charts and between growth charts, based on estimated fetal weight vs those based on birth weight. Opinions remain divided on which charts are best to use, however, since the publication of the Intergrowth 21st study, we are now in a position to be able to assess growth and development in an internationally standardized fashi...

Publication date: Available online 23 February 2018 Source:Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging Author(s): O. Hélénon, A. Crosnier, V. Verkarre, S. Merran, A. Méjean, J.-M. Correas Ultrasound and slice imaging are currently the key modalities for diagnosing simple renal cysts. Benign simple renal cysts are defined by a set of strict criteria. Any cystic lesions that do not meet these criteria should be classified as “atypical” or “complex” and considered as suspicious. For over three decades, the Bosniak classification has been the central tool for diagnosing renal cystic mass...

CONCLUSION: The data showed that laparoscopic RFA is an effective treatment for small (< 10 cm) HHs. While the incidence of postoperative complications remains high, the majority of complications are minor. Patients undergoing laparoscopic RFA for HHs, even for the small ones, should be carefully selected. PMID: 29469049 [PubMed - in process]
