Competence in pleural procedures.
Competence in pleural procedures. Panminerva Med. 2018 Oct 31;: Authors: Carlucci P, Trigiani M, Mori PA, Mondoni M, Pinelli V, Casalini AG, Conte EG, Buggio G, Villari L, Marchetti G Abstract Diseases of the pleura and pleural space are common and present a significant contribution to the workload of respiratory physicians, accounting for an annual incidence of more than 1.5 million cases in the US with the majority of cases resulting from congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and cancer 1. Although the radiographic and ultrasonographic detection of pleural abnormalities may be obvious, the determination of a specific diagnosis can often represent a challenge. Since pleural effusions can develop as the result of over 50 different pleuropulmonary or systemic disorders, determining the cause of a pleural effusion can be greatly facilitated by the analysis of the pleural fluid obtained during an ultrasound guided thoracentesis. Invasive procedures such as ultrasound/CT-guided pleural biopsy or medical thoracoscopy can be useful in selected patients. The knowledge of the etiology and of the management of primary and secondary spontaneous pneumothorax is mandatory in an interventional pulmonology training programme, while the medical or surgical treatment of the recurrence is still a matter of discussion. Pleural drainage is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure used in the treatment of pneumothorax and large pleural effusions, pleural infections and in neopl...
Abstract COVID-19 has created enormous challenges for health systems worldwide, with the rapidly growing number of deaths and critical patients with pneumonia requiring ventilatory support. Alternative methods to control the spread of the disease such as social isolation, extreme quarantine measures, and contact tracing have been used around the world. However, these measures may not be totally effective to fight COVID-19, in step with the necessary national preparations to meet the new patient care demands. A wide range of digital technologies can be used to enhance these public health strategies, and the pandemi...
CONCLUSIONS: Simultaneous CRC and CRLM resections seem to be safe when patients are carefully selected, also considering the risk of recurrence concerning oncologic outcomes. The pre-planning of simultaneous resection is mandatory to plan trocar positioning, procedure sequencing, and patient position. PMID: 32490901 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: the prevalence of symptoms was high and changed throughout the hospitalization period. Patients with poorer functional capacity and poorer performance had greater symptom overload. PMID: 32490991 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Cheng J, Yang A, Cheng S, Feng L, Wu X, Lu X, Zu M, Cui J, Yu H, Zou L Abstract BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are attracting substantial interest as promising noninvasive biomarkers for gastric cancer (GC). Our study aimed to identify circulating miRNAs that are potential noninvasive markers for precancerous lesions and early gastric cancers (EGCs). MATERIAL AND METHODS Plasma specimens were obtained from 58 gastritis subjects, 54 patients with precancerous lesions, and 38 EGC patients for study. RESULTS Significant differences in the plasma expression levels of miR-19a-3p, miR-22-3p, miR-146a-5p, and miR-483-5p (all P
