Gel foam or microsphere particles for partial splenic artery embolization in managing patients with hypersplenism

ConclusionPSE using gel foam or microsphere showed nearly the same efficacy with no significant difference between the improvement in laboratory tests. However, using microsphere particles was associated with fewer occurrences of serious complications when compared with using gel foam.

Conclusions: Our findings provide new evidence on patterns of behavioral modification in a population-based sample of Latinos diagnosed with chronic health conditions. Findings suggest the need to promote language and culturally relevant initiatives to increase the adoption of health-enhancing behaviors and improve chronic disease management among Spanish-speaking Latinos.

os AC Abstract PURPOSE: To examine the effects of Arrabidaa chica (Bignoniacea) extract, a native plant of the Amazon known as crajiru, on a 7,12-dimethyl-1,2-benzanthracene (DMBA)-induced breast cancer model in Wistar rats. METHODS: We compared the response of breast cancer to the oral administration of A. chica extract (ACE) for 16 weeks, associated or not with vincristine. Groups: normal control; DMBA (50mg/kg v.o,) without treatment; DMBA+ACE (300 mg/kg); DMBA+vincristine. 500μg/kg injected i.p; DMBA+ACE+Vincristine 250μg/kg i.p. Imaging by microPET and fluorescence, biochemistry, oxidative stress, ...

I’ve been doing RFAs in private practice for 5 years, never any complications. Today, I slipped off the left L4 pedicle a few times, it was challenging. Adjusted the fluoro and was satisfied.

In PACU patient complained of weakness and numbness in the L4 dermatome (FML). I was hoping it could be chalked up to the lidocaine... RFA complication
