Purpose: The use of FDG PET has become more readily available over the past 15 years. It can be used to aid initial staging of testicular tumours and also assess the response to treatment in the metastatic setting, especially as residual masses are frequently seen after chemotherapy. There have been some recent concerns that FDG PET used to assess for residual disease may have a low positive predictive value [1]. A retrospective audit was carried out to look at the performance of FDG PET in seminoma patients treated at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre.

It is unclear whether sarcopenia is responsible for long-term mortality in patients who require extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for acute respiratory failure. We retrospectively reviewed 127 patients who underwent computed tomography imaging before initiating ECMO from June 2014 to November 2017. The patients were divided into two groups according to the skeletal muscle index (SMI): low SMI (n = 47) and high SMI (n = 80). Mean age was lower in the high SMI group than in the low SMI group (60.2 vs. 53.9 years, p = 0.002). Mean body mass index was higher in the high SMI group than in the low SMI group (21.6 vs. 24...

A retrospective study was done in a tertiary care centre. Clinical data from 2013 to 2015 was compiled, surgical management with outcome was analysed. A total of 425 patients with chronic otitis media were evaluated. Single/multiple complications were seen in 147 (34.5%) patients. Majority of the complications were seen in active squamosal type of chronic otitis media i.e. 137 (59.5%) cases out of the 147. Meningitis (3.3%) was the most common intracranial c...
