Congenital and acquired vascular pathologies of gastrointestinal system: Imaging findings and review of literature
Publication date: Available online 2 October 2018Source: The Egyptian Journal of Radiology and Nuclear MedicineAuthor(s): Gayathri Nagenthran, Rajoo Ramachandran, Balaji Jeevanandham, Prabhu RadhakrishnanAbstractCongenital and acquired vascular pathologies of the gastrointestinal system may be diagnosed at any age and a detailed knowledge of the normal anatomy and their imaging findings is very important for surgical or interventional procedures. The aim of this review is to discuss clinical and imaging findings of the rare vascular pathologies that we encountered in patients undergoing abdominal computed tomography.
ConclusionsIn this study, there was no significant enlargement of the orbital rim with increasing age in Koreans. The measurement data in the present study differ from previous studies involving White subjects, which revealed a significant increase in orbital aperture area.
AbstractObjectivesTo assess the prevalence of dental implant-related perforations of relevant anatomical structures and inadequate spacing between the implant and the adjacent tooth or implant, and their association with anatomical location, implant dimension, thread exposure, and presence of graft, using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).Materials and methodsCBCT scans of patients with implants were retrospectively assessed regarding the presence of implant-related perforation of adjacent anatomical structures, and inadequate mesial and distal spacing between the implant and the adjacent tooth/implant (i.e.,

Whether bone–tendon healing is better facilitated by tendon fixation on a bone surface or within a tunnel is unknown. The purpose of this study was to comparatively evaluate the effects of bone surface versus bone trough fixation on bone–tendon healing in a rabbit patella–patellar tendon (PPT) injury model.MethodsThe rab...
ConclusionWhen the cross-link during PSO surgery was positioned two levels away from the PSO site, the risk of rod fracture did not increase.
CONCLUSIONS: These results provide the first evidence that TAVI may improve cognitive functions associated with increased cerebral perfusion especially in the hippocampus in elderly patients with severe AS. PMID: 31951203 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This study sought to derive and validate a systematic method enabling AVC quantification using computed tomography angiography (CTA) in patients with AS.Methods134 consecutive patients with AS who underwent both NCCT and CTA were included in the study and sub-divided into derivation (n=71) and validation cohorts (n=63). On NCCT, AVC was quantified using Agatston method utilizing the software developed for semi-automatic assessment of coronary calcium. On CTA, mean contrast attenuation of aorta (AortaHU) and standard deviation (SD) was measured in the region-of-interest at level of sinotubular junction.ResultsUsing an adjus...
ConclusionsThe performance of the systems proved to be image quality specific, depending on the DVF type and only partially on the platforms. All systems proved to be robust against image artifacts and noise, except the demon-based software.
Authors: Crapé L, Strubbe B, Cesmeli E, de Clerck F Abstract A 24-year-old male presented with abdominal pain, postprandial vomiting and weight loss. Lab results showed an elevated serum eosinophil count and CT-scan demonstrated a thickened antral, duodenal and jejunal wall. Repetitive endoscopic mucosal biopsies were normal. Work-up of eosinophilia-associated gastro-intestinal disorders excluded secondary causes. Bone marrow showed an elevated eosinophil count without arguments for a primary hypereosinophilic syndrome. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy detected a strongly elevated number of eo...
CONCLUSION: CT is helpful in predicting GIF in patients with AP. PMID: 31950804 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionsAn advanced 3-D printing model provides affirmative information related to treatment strategy and is also a prospective tool for better doctor –patient communication regarding the disease.
