Radical robot-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy with thrombectomy in the vena cava.

CONCLUSIONS: Radical nephrectomy with thrombectomy in the vena cava is a technique susceptible to severe complications and has, to date, been performed in few centres. We believe that the technique is reproducible and has clear advantages for our patients. PMID: 29699882 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a case report of an adult woman with AKL-positive ALCL, diagnosed by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS-TBNA).A 59-year-old women with no history of breast implants, was admitted for a four-month low back pain. Initially, the patient was treated for a spondyloarthropathy, but due to persistence of the symptoms, a lumbosacral MRI was performed, showing changes in morphology and signal intensity in the vertebral body of L3, along with edema and a paravertebral collection that affected the left psoas muscle, suggesting granulomatous spondylodiscitis. Chest CT-scan showed mild left ...

CONCLUSION For patients with TBI resulting in intracranial hemorrhages, administration of VTE chemoprophylaxis is warranted for those patients with stable repeat computed tomography scans. Early chemoprophylaxis, at 24 to 72 hours is associated with reduced VTE incidence without a corresponding increase or exacerbation of intracranial hemorrhage in patients with TBI who have a stable repeat head computed tomography scan. More studies are needed to establish guidelines for the safety and efficacy of VTE prophylaxis protocols in adult patients with TBI. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Systematic review, level III.

Purpose: To compare intraocular pressure, anterior segment optical coherence tomography, and ultrasound biomicroscopy parameters over 3 months after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) for proliferative diabetic retinopathy after 1 of 2 sittings by conventional laser (half PRP) and a single sitting of Pattern Scan Laser (PASCAL) PRP. Methods: This was a prospective, randomized, interventional study. All tests were performed at baseline, and at 1, 6, and 24 hours, and 1, 4, 8, and 12 weeks after PRP. Results: The intraocular pressure at 1 hour and 6 hours after PRP was significantly raised in both groups. Mean intraoc...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer type in humans. Various factors play a role in BCC occurrence, but sunlight exposure is the most common etiologic factor. This case series presents three patients who had scarring after severe traumas (a deep abrasion, burn, and puncture injury); a long time after the respective traumatic events, a BCC occurred in the scar tissue. The lesions were excised, and BCCs were diagnosed based on histopathology. Although several etiologic factors may play a role in trauma-related BCC, the main mechanism remains unclear. A correct diagnosis with biopsy and an assessment of t...

CONCLUSION: In conclusion, PMP levels are increased in PCOS and further increase with OCP use. This effect could possibly contribute to the increased risk of venous thromboembolism associated with OCP use. However, further studies are needed to elucidate the exact role of PMPs in PCOS.

The objective of this study was to evaluate changes in sexual function after total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) or transabdominal hysterectomy (TAH). This retrospective cohort study included patients with benign uterine tumors that were divided into TLH group and TAH group based on the hysterectomy technique used. Baseline, intraoperative, and postoperative characteristics were compared between groups. Postoperative sexual function was assessed using the Brief Index of Sexual Functioning for Women. The TLH and TAH groups contained 119 patients (age, 51.5±6.1 years) and 126 patients (age, 50.0±4.7 years), r...
