Conclusions mTF reduced rate of midcycle hemorrhage compared with DF. With mTF, midcycle hemorrhage was significantly smaller with 1.7-mm probe; although noticeably smaller with 2.4-mm probe, statistical significance was not achieved. Iceball size was not significantly different across both protocols and probe types.

I just read a Clinical Problem Solving case from the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). It was entitled “Stream of Consciousness“and it told the story of a 65-year-old man who was a patient at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School, arguably one of the finest medical institutions in the world. These cases are presented in single paragraphs to a clinical expert physician who then comments about his or her thought processes and discusses how he or she would have handled the situation. In this narrative, the patient presented to a different hospital in New England with kidney failure...

Effects of Qi-Fang-Xi-Bi-Granules on Cartilage Morphology and C/ebpα Promoter Methylation in Rats with Knee Osteoarthritis. Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2018;2018:2074976 Authors: Wang X, Shen P, Tang D, Xu H, Qiu H, Wu T, Gao X Abstract Objective: To investigate the effects of Qi-Fang-Xi-Bi-Granules (QFXBGs) on cartilage morphology and methylation of C/ebpα (CCAAT/enhancer binding proteinα) at the promoter region. Methods: Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) modeling was performed in rats in accordance with Hulth's method, and control group received sham operation. Eight weeks after...

CONCLUSION: Failure to recognize blunt trauma mechanism following firearm wounds increases the risk of missed injuries. Distant injuries should be suspected in all cases after blast wave and firearms exposure and a follow up should be done for many days to make sure such injuries are excluded. CT scan total body is recommended in all such cases. Key words: Blunt trauma, Distant Injuries, Firearm injuries, Pressure Waves. PMID: 29667607 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: TETs with clearly invasive or metastatic features seen on CT are associated with having higher AJCC/UICC pathologic TNM stage, as expected. However, features of lobulated contour and heterogeneous internal density are also associated with higher stage disease. These findings need to be validated in an independent cohort.

Purpose: Dynamic computed tomography (CT) of the airways is increasingly used to evaluate patients with suspected expiratory central airway collapse, but current protocols are susceptible to inadequate exhalation caused by variable patient compliance with breathing instructions during the expiratory phase. We developed and tested a low-cost single-use expiratory airflow indicator device that was designed to improve study quality by providing a visual indicator to both patient and operator when adequate expiratory flow was attained. Materials and Methods: A total of 56 patients undergoing dynamic airway CT were evaluat...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate if bone substitutes are strictly necessary to restore the vertebral body height and improve the clinical outcome, in patients with thoracolumbar or lumbar AO type A post-traumatic vertebral fractures, managed with balloon kyphoplasty combined with posterior screw and rod system.Methods105 patients with post-traumatic thoracolumbar spine fracture were recruited. At baseline, the patients underwent a CT and an MRI of the spine. Clinical evaluation was performed, using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), at baseline, 48  h after surgery, at 3-month follow-u...
