GautierAbstractManganese nickel oxides with a spinel-related structure, NixMn3-xO4-δ (x = 0.5 or 0.75), were synthesized by an ultrasound-assisted sol-gel method. Inductively coupled plasma atomic optical emission spectroscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy analysis showed good agreement with the nominal oxide compositions. The Rietveld refinement of the X-ray data indicated that both Ni0.5Mn2.5O4-δ and Ni0.75Mn2.25O4-δ cryst...

We present the rare case of a 47-year-old male long-distance runner who was referred to our hospital with a longstanding pain in his left calf. Clinical history, as well as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging scans, showed an accessory peroneal muscle. This muscle was identified as a peroneus quartus muscle. On ultrasound, controlled intracompartmental pressure measurement, a chronic peroneal compartment syndrome, was diagnosed. We performed an endoscopic-assisted fasciotomy of the peroneal compartment. This resolved the patient's symptoms completely and allowed the runner to return to competition shortly after the surgery.

AbstractIn this letter to the Editor, we would like to comment on the article by Betcher et al., concerning the possibility of teaching military trainees to obtain accurate optic nerve sheath diameter measurements, using a brief didactic and a hands-on training session. In particular, this letter notes the importance of the measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter in detecting the eventual elevated intracranial pressure following traumatic brain injury, highlights several limitations in the use of B-scan for such a purpose and suggests a more accurate evaluation with the standardized A-scan.

Authors: Shah AR, Al-Hanayneh M, Chowdhry M, Bilal M, Singh S Abstract Liver biopsy plays an essential role in the diagnosis, evaluation and management of a vast proportion of liver diseases. Conventionally, percutaneous and trans-jugular approaches have been used to obtain liver biopsies. Endoscopic ultrasound guided liver biopsy (EUS-LB) has emerged as a safe and effective alternate in the past two decades. EUS-LB carries a role in evaluation of both benign and malignant diseases of the liver. It can offer higher resolution imaging of the liver and can detect smaller lesions than computed tomography scan of the a...

The goal of the study described here was to compare the automatic breast volume scanner (ABVS) and handheld ultrasound (HHUS) with respect to diagnostic performance in the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant breast lesions. A literature search of the PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases through 30 June 2018 was conducted. Pooled sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative likelihood ratios and diagnostic odds ratios of the ABVS and HHUS were calculated, and summary receiver operating characteristic (SROC) curves were drawn.

CONCLUSION: There is no statistical difference between endoscopic ultrasound guided coils plus cyanoacrylate versus conventional cyanoacrylate technique in relation to the incidence of embolism. However, a greater tendency towards embolism was observed in the group treated using the conventional technique. Both techniques have similar efficacy in the obliteration of varices. Given the small sample size of our pilot data, our results are insufficient to prove the clinical benefit of the combined technique, and do not yet justify its use, especially in light of higher cost. Further studies with larger sample size are warrant...
