Conclusions: This is an effective and minimally invasive method to reduce the residual pleural space after lung resections. Narrowing of the pleural space facilitates the contact between the lung and the chest wall promoting the resolution of the air leak. Diaphragm paralysis is controlled and temporary with no residual disabilities. PMID: 30233862 [PubMed]

Conclusions: With contemporary staging techniques, so-called occult N2 disease, even with low volume and PET non-avid disease, does not have an indolent course and should still be considered a risk factor for poorer prognosis. PMID: 30233853 [PubMed]

We present the case of a twenty-nine year old male carpenter with non-traumatic bilateral peroneal fascial defects, in which the symptomatic right side was successfully repaired using a GraftJacket®. This case report highlights the need for clinicians to remain aware of the diagnosis of muscle herniation as a cause of a painful mass in the lower limbs, especially when related to exercise. The judicious use of further imaging such as ultrasound in combination with MRI can be useful in differentiating a muscle hernia from other more sinister causes, such as malignancy.

AbstractAcute hepatic illness is an important health issue in children. Our work aimed to determine the prevalence of viral hepatitis in symptomatic children. It is a prospective cohort study of 268 children presented with acute hepatitis. Complete blood count, liver panel, and anti-hepatitis A virus (HAV) IgM were done initially. Cases negative for HAV were tested for anti-hepatitis E (HEV) IgM, anti-Epstein-Barr virus viral capsid antigen (EBV VCA) IgM, anti-cytomegalovirus virus IgM, hepatitis B surface antigen, anti-hepatitis B core IgM antibody, and anti-HCV antibody. Anti-HCV was repeated after 12  weeks to excl...

Authors: Hu JS, Xie GH, Yuan HS, Liu GL, Jia XL, Zheng Z, Cheng Y Abstract The present study assessed the clinical efficacy of guide sheath-assisted ureteroscope lithotripsy in the treatment of upper ureteral calculi. A total of 81 patients with upper ureteral calculi underwent ureteroscope lithotripsy assisted by a guide sheath between January 2012 and June 2014; of these, 63 patients were successfully treated with simple rigid ureteroscope lithotripsy assisted by a ureteral access sheath, and 18 patients were successfully treated with rigid and flexible ureteroscope lithotripsy assisted by a guide sheath. At 1 da...

In this study the sonothrombolytic efficacy of our new nanoscaled ultrasound contrast agent (NUSCA) was investigated. This new contrast agent has a size of less than 100 nm and should thus be able to penetrate the thrombus and achieve a thrombolysis from inside out. In this study human whole blood clots were exposed to US, US and NUSCA, US and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-Pa) or urokinase (UK), or a combination of US, NUSCA and thrombolytic drug in a closed-loop flow model. We sonicated with diagnostic US at a frequency of 2.85 MHz for 30 min. Clot mass loss of 50.6 ±&thin...

This study aims to investigate the correlations between the expression of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (C-erB-2), CD34, and estrogen receptor (ER) in breast cancer (BC) patients, and the signs of conventional ultrasonography and ultrasound elastography. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Clinical data of 88 patients who were pathologically diagnosed as breast cancer were retrospectively analyzed. HI VISION Avius color ultrasound device was used to perform ultrasound and related ultrasound parameters were analyzed. Expressions of C-erB-2, CD34, and ER were detected by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: There was a correl...

Authors: Dai HX, Li JW, Zhang YQ, Chen XS, Huang X, Liu LJ, Yang YP, Liu EQ, Wang JX, Chen XF, Zeng S, Liang T, Xu XH Abstract OBJECTIVE: To understand the value of high frequency ultrasound in the clinical screening of parathyroid gland, and to summarize the intrinsic relationship between primary hyperparathyroidism and recurrent urinary calculi. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 98 cases of urinary calculi were randomly selected, and the patients were admitted to our hospital from March 2014 to August 2017. A total of 100 healthy subjects were selected as group B in the same period. High frequency color Doppler ultrasono...
