Case report: a rare cause of a hypervascular nodule in a noncirrhotic liver.

Case report: a rare cause of a hypervascular nodule in a noncirrhotic liver. Z Gastroenterol. 2019 Jan;57(1):57-60 Authors: Koschny R, Allgäuer M, Pfeiffenberger J, Seessle J, Fuchs J, Longerich T, Wielpütz MO, Hoffmann K Abstract A 37-year-old male patient with Crohn's disease and multiple liver hemangiomas was referred to our hospital for an atypical hypervascular hepatic lesion detected on an external magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The patient was otherwise well and had no history of any liver disease. Liver values and tumor markers were normal. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound confirmed multiple hemangiomas in different liver segments and a hypervascular tumor with a hypovascular rim in segment II/IV. Repeat MRI showed a strongly enhancing neoplasm of 2.6 cm with a texture distinctly different from the otherwise relatively uniform hemangiomas, without evidence of interim growth. Ultrasound-guided biopsy revealed a hepatic small vessel neoplasm. Due to the unknown malignant potential, atypical segmental surgical resection was performed. Final histopathological analysis confirmed the complete resection of the lesion. The postoperative course was uneventful. PMID: 30641604 [PubMed - in process]

Legaz, Juan / Karasan, Duygu / Fehmer, Vincent / Sailer, IrenaPage 538 - 544The prototyping protocol to evaluate and make the potential adjustments prior to finalization of the monolithic restorations was described by two clinical situations. In the first case report, following the digital impressions using an intraoral scanner (3Shape Trios, 3Shape) for an implant-supported four-unit fixed dental prosthesis, a digital design (3Shape Dental System, 3Shape) was performed and a prototype using subtractive CAM (milling) (PMMA, Telio CAD, Ivoclar Vivadent) was fabricated. The second case highlights the 3D-printed prototyping (...

CONCLUSION: This study seems to depict the existence of resting state hippocampo-lingual functional network which correlates well with lateralization of language function in the left hemisphere in both temporal lobe epilepsy patients and healthy controls.

CONCLUSION: In this study, we found a strong correlation between ScvO2 and NIRS measurements taken from the internal jugular vein site. Accordingly, continuous noninvasive monitoring with transcutaneous NIRSijv can be an alternative method as a trend monitor for the central venous oxygen saturation in pediatric cardiac patients undergoing congenital cardiac surgery.

We report on a 31-year-old male patient with non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma, low grade of the renal pelvis disguised as xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. The only symptom of the patient was lower back pain. The initial renal-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography showed that the right kidney had a benign lesion and this inflammatory lesion might be xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. A percutaneous renal biopsy was performed and histopathologic examination revealed a xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Initially, we diagnosed it as xanthogranulomatous p...

AbstractPurposeRobot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP) using the da Vinci surgical robot is a common treatment for organ-confined prostate cancer. Augmented reality (AR) can help during RALRP by showing the surgeon the location of anatomical structures and tumors from preoperative imaging. Previously, we proposed hand-eye and camera intrinsic matrix estimation procedures that can be carried out with conventional instruments within the patient during surgery, take

The T follicular helper T (Tfh) cells play a significant role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is regulated by the Bcl-6/Blimp-1 pathway. Some studies have suggested that regulating activation of the Bcl-6/Blimp-1 pathway should be an effective method to treat IBD. Sishen Pill (SSP) has been used frequently to treat chronic colitis. Its mechanism is related to the downstream proteins in the Bcl-6/Blimp-1 pathway. However, it is unknown whether SSP regulates the function and differentiation of Tfh cells to treat IBD. In the present study, chronic colitis was induced by dextran sodium sulfate an...

AbstractDecision aids (DAs) are evidence-based tools that support shared decision-making (SDM) implementation in practice; this study aimed to identify existing osteoporosis DAs and assess their quality and efficacy; and to gain feedback from a patient advisory group on findings and implications for further research. We searched multiple bibliographic databases to identify research studies from 2000 to 2019 and undertook an environmental scan (search conducted February 2019, repeated in March 2020). A pair of reviewers, working independently selected studies for inclusion, extracted data, evaluated each trial ’s risk...

Authors: Piłat P, Borzęcki A, Jazienicki M, Gerkowicz A, Szubstarski F, Krasowska D Abstract Introduction: There are many papers in the available literature on the pre-operative evaluation of malignant melanoma (MM) using a 20 MHz probe. In many Western European countries, this examination is standard in the diagnosis of such lesions in terms of the resection margin. However, few papers describe and compare the results of melanoma thickness measurements using 20 and 50 MHz frequency probes. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the thickness of melanoma using 20 and 50 MHz probes. In addition, the obtaine...

CONCLUSIONS: Due to the high incidence of the anatomical variants of the paranasal sinuses, aCT scan is recommended in all patients before a planned surgery in order to avoid the potential iatrogenic complications. Dimensions of the sphenoid sinuses might point towards more at risk variants, but there is still a substantial amount of research that needs to be done in that aspect.
