Gallbladder Pathologies in Kidney Transplant Recipients: Single-Center Experience and a Review of the Literature.

CONCLUSIONS In specific age subgroups of KTRs, the frequency of gallbladder pathologies was higher than in the general population. Prophylactic cholecystectomy may potentially offer benefits in these subgroups of patients. PMID: 30104561 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsAn inexpensive reusable non-commercial LP simulator can be an effective method for teaching invasive procedures like LPs, especially if it can be used both for palpation and US-guided procedures. The method outlined here can be easily reproduced in a relatively short amount of time. We recognize one limitation in the widespread dissemination of this technique being access to a 3D printer and digital designs for printing. Future studies will be necessary to determine the efficacy of the homemade LP simulator in teaching neurointensivist in training.

Background: Juvenile polyps (JPs) are the most common gastrointestinal polyps diagnosed in children. There is paucity of evidence differentiating polyp burden groups and the presence and significance of neoplastic changes. Methods: A retrospective chart review of patients, ages birth through 18 years with nonsyndromic JPs was performed from 2003 to 2017. Abstracted data included basic demographics, age, clinical presentation, colonoscopy findings, and pathology report. Slides of polyps with neoplasia were reviewed by a pathologist. Results: A total of 213 subjects underwent 326 procedures and 435 polypectomies. Sub...

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Ashlay A. Huitema, Karen Harkness, Shiraz Malik, Neville Suskin, Robert S. McKelvieABSTRACTGlobally, there are approximately 26 million people living with heart failure (HF) and 50% of those patients suffer from HF with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), costing countries billions of dollars each year. Improvements in treatment of cardiovascular diseases, including advanced HF, have allowed an unprecedented number of patients to survive into old age. Despite these advances, patients with HF deteriorate and often require adva...

Authors: Sari A, Eroglu A Abstract BACKGROUND: Injections is a good alternative to conventional treatment-resistant cases with rotator cuff (RC) lesions before operation. Currently, different injection methods are used in RC lesions. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of different injection methods (platelet-rich plasma [PRP], corticosteroid [COR] and prolotherapy [PRO]) in RC tendon lesions. METHODS: One hundred and twenty-nine patients were divided into 4 groups as PRP, COR, PRO and the lidocaine group. Subacromial injection was applied to all groups. They were evaluated using the Visual Analogue Scale (...

Authors: Plečko M, Bohaček I, Tripković B, Čimić M, Jelić M, Delimar D Abstract Anterior section of the hip joint capsule is innervated by femoral nerve and obturator nerve, and posterior section is innervated by the nerve to quadratus femoris muscle and occasionally by the superior gluteal (posterolateral region) and sciatic nerve (posterosuperior region). One of the regional anesthesia options for hip surgery is the fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) that affects nerves important for hip innervation and sensory innervation of the thigh - femoral, obturator and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. FICB can b...
