Eponymythology: Atraumatic Abdominal Ecchymosis

LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog LITFL • Life in the Fast Lane Medical Blog - Emergency medicine and critical care medical education blog Overview We review the original descriptions of 5 eponymous signs (n=6) associated with non-traumatic abdominal ecchymosis. These commonly cited eponyms involving the abdominal wall and flanks (Grey Turner, Cullen and Stabler); scrotum (Bryant) and upper thigh (Fox) may be useful clues directing the examiner to consider potentially serious causes of abdominal pathology. Cullen sign Thomas Stephen Cullen (1869–1953) was a Canadian gynecologist Non-traumatic peri-umbilical ecchymoses associated with intra-abdominal haemorrhage, originally described in ectopic pregnancy – Cullen sign Original publication: (n=1) 1918 – Cullen first described a bluish black discoloration of the periumbilical skin in a female patient with a ruptured extrauterine pregnancy with ‘no history of injury‘ Cullen originally described the finding at the 43rd annual meeting of the Transactions of the American gyecological society, Pennsylvania May 16-18 1918 [Am J Obstet Gynecol 1918;78:457]. He concluded that the umbilical appearance was due to intra-abdominal haemorrhage secondary to an ectopic pregnancy + TS Cullen original description expand(document.getElementById('ddet1466566632'));expand(document.getElementById('ddetlink1466566632')) Clinical context Despite the original description, most literature relat...

In this study, 5% w/v SMP dispersion was acidified to pH 2.4–3.0 using citric acid and heated at different conditions. Lowering pH resulted in dissolution of colloidal calcium phosphate from casein micelles, corresponding to lowered turbidity and reduced hydrodynamic diameter of dispersions. When heated for 10 min at different temperatures, 70 °C was the most effective to produce transparent dispersions; whereas a shorter heating time between 2 and 60 min was desired at 90 °C. The decreased turbidity after heating was attributed to weakened hydrophobic interaction between casein molecules based on f...

Authors: Joo I, Kim SY, Park HS, Lee ES, Kang HJ, Lee JM Abstract OBJECTIVE: To validate the diagnostic value of a new point shear-wave elastography method, S-shearwave elastography (S-SWE; Samsung Medison Co., Ltd.), in noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective multicenter study, liver stiffness (LS) measurements for 600 participants were obtained with both S-SWE and transient elastography (TE). The rates of unsuccessful LS measurements in S-SWE and TE were compared, and correlations between S-SWE and TE measurements were assessed. In 107 patients with histologic refe...

Abdallah, Mohamed S.Mohamed AhmedAbstractEthyl 2-(1,2,3,6-tetrahydro-6-oxo-2-thioxopyrimidin-4-yl)ethanoate (EOTPE) was synthesized by a facile and cost-effective method. The structure confirmation of the synthesized EOTPE was performed by different spectroscopic methods. The corrosion inhibition action of EOTPE in pickling acids (1.0 N HCl and1.0 N H2SO4) at different temperatures (30–60 °C) was tested by various surface and corrosion methods, including open circuit potential (...

In this study, a new model was established to evaluate the van der Waals force between a rough surface and a deposited particle. In the new model, a surface was not modeled with any given geometrics, and no artificially defined coefficients were involved. A concise function was proposed, where the derived particle-surface force was inversely proportional to the particle’s normal position on the surface. Atomic force microscopy experiments were performed with a novel method to validate the new theory. A target particle was used to scan an area of a surface twice to obtain a height map and a force map. Data on the meas...

To explore whether HYL can be applied in anti-tumor therapy, we synthesized HYL and further modified its structure by using a solid-phase synthesis method, and then evaluated their antitumor activities. Firstly, we identified the key residues of HYL by alanine scanning strategy, and then a series of stapled pept...
