Authors: Ravaioli F, Colecchia A, Alemanni LV, Vestito A, Dajti E, Marasco G, Sessa M, Pession A, Bonifazi F, Festi D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Veno-occlusive-disease (VOD), known also as sinusoidal-obstruction-syndrome (SOS), is one of the main complications of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and is related to the treatment with pyrrolizidine alkaloids or other toxic agents (chemotherapy for liver-metastasis). Clinical diagnosis using the recent criteria from the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, is the reference for VOD/SOS diagnosis. However, increasing evidence suggests the emerg...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the interest of measurement of the aortic surface by planimetry with the scanner.MethodsThis retrospective single-center study focused on 127 patients with symptomatic tight RA who were referred to a TAVI between January 2017 and February 2018. On CT, the valvular calcium score and the aortic area (by planimetry) were evaluated. On ultrasound, performed for each patient as the CT scan, the aortic area and the mean gradient were also measured. Concordance between CT and ultrasound to estimate the aortic area was evaluated by a Bland and Altman test. Correlations between the differe...

Conclusions: Average age at the time of diagnosis of RCC in Sri Lankan patients is lower than the developed world, with a large proportion of patients being under 50 years. Obesity, hypertension, and DM are associated risk factors for RCC in Sri Lankan patients while smoking is not.

Conclusion: We found that CCT measurements between the AL-Scan–UP, Lenstar LS900–UP, and AL-Scan–Lenstar LS900 showed very strong correlation and comparable agreement. AL-Scan–UP showed the closest agreement and these devices can be used interchangeably in clinical practice. Galilei significantly showed higher value of CCT compared to other methods. It was also observed that the Al-Scan had excellent intraobserver repeatability.

Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E462-E470 DOI: 10.1055/a-0838-5326 Background and study aims Precise staging in T1 esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is critical in determining candidacy for curative endoscopic resection. High-frequency endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has demonstrated suboptimal accuracy in T1 EAC staging due to insufficient spatial resolution. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) allows for high-resolution wide-field visualization of the esophageal microstructure. We aimed to investigate the role of VLE in staging T1 EAC. Patients and methods Patients undergoing endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) were...

Conclusion:The proposed algorithm registered 3D CT with dynamic 2D intraoperative imaging. The algorithm aligned the images in both space and time, needing neither dynamic CT imaging nor intraoperative electrocardiograms. The accuracy was sufficient for navigation in thoracoscopically guided beating-heart surgery.

CONCLUSION: In preterm infants, ONSD strongly correlates with corrected gestational age. These data should be validated with other imaging modalities before abnormal ranges can be considered. PMID: 30889584 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe a follow-up algorithm for newly diagnosed KFD cases, based on the current literature. KFD is a rare cause of cervical lymphadenopathy. It is associated with increased risk of developing SLE, therefore early diagnosis and long-term follow-up are recommended.
