Mosquito Wars: What Works To Keep These Bugs Away?
Dozens of products claim to protect us from mosquitos and other insects, including new wearable ultrasound devices and herbal oils. Which ones work? And is Victoria's Secret Bombshell perfume one of them?
CONCLUSIONS: Unbalanced production of Cho signal in the follicular fluid may have occurred secondary to membrane damage of cumulus-oocyte-complexes due to CC therapy. PMID: 30024629 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: All the patients have been treated with simple surgical excision with a cure rate of 72.6% at a mean recurrence time of 160 days with a mean follow-up of 3.6 years. Histopathological examination, performed in 11 out of the 53 cysts, revealed seven cases of ganglion-type cysts and four cases of focal cutaneous mucinosis-type cysts. No correlation was detected between histopathological type and recurrence. Digital dermoscopy confirmed the pattern recently reported in the literature, providing confidence in the clinical diagnosis and reducing the need for pre-operative radiography or ultrasound imaging.

Many studies have been done to provide mechanisms of ultrasound-mediated gene delivery at the cellular level. This review summarizes the studies on the important aspects of the mechanisms, providing an overview of recent progress in cellular experiment of ultrasound-mediated gene delivery.
A doctor may detect enlarged ovaries during an ultrasound or physical examination. The ovaries can become enlarged for several reasons, including ovulation, polycystic ovary syndrome, and benign cysts. In this article, learn more about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of enlarged ovaries, including during pregnancy.
Conclusions: A modified Sistrunk procedure is method of choice in the treatment of the uncomplicated TGDC. In selected cases of the TGDC with a history of infected cyst or incision of an abscess or in revision cases the central neck dissection should be considered in order to avoid the risk of the further recurrences.

ConclusionOn the basis of our results, TAE using n-butyl-2 cyanoacrylate seems safe and effective for the treatment of bleeding after EUS-TPBD procedures. When the portal vein is compromised, TAE of the hepatic artery can cause ischemic liver damage.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the standard diagnostic procedure for tissue sampling of solid lesions within adjacent to the GI tract. However, FNA has limitations that can eliminated if a larger tissue sample is obtained. A fine needle biopsy (FNB) device that has a reverse bevel at the needle tip may provide higher diagnostic yield with fewer needle passes.
We thank Drs Crino and Larghi for their comments. We do agree that endoscopic ultrasound –guided fine-needle biopsy (EUS-FNB) is preferred over EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) for tissue acquisition, except for the following: (1) when the patient is borderline coagulopathic or when anticoagulation cannot be discontinued but a tissue diagnosis still is desired (risk of blee ding may be higher with FNB), or (2) for sampling pancreatic cyst lesions (the risk of pancreatitis may be higher with FNB).
