CONCLUSIONS: These data provide the current PCI practice pattern with the use of FFR and IVUS in intermediate lesion. More common use of FFR for intermediate lesion should be encouraged. PMID: 31190480 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: In this study, we did not demonstrate any suspicious ultrasound (US) finding predictive for malignancy in thyroid nodules with persistent ND cytology and did not determine any difference between malignant and benign nodules regarding TI-RADS scores. Whereas, we found that thyroid nodules in 4a, 4b, and 4c TI-RADS categories had higher malignancy rates than those previously reported in ND cytology. We think that TI-RADS categories in thyroid nodules with persistent ND cytology can be helpful in treatment decision. PMID: 31195788 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Stiffness of the liver, spleen, and kidneys in HIV-monoinfected children was increased. SWE can be used in the detection of early parenchymal changes even in patients with normal laboratory parameters and ultrasonographic findings. PMID: 31192547 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Performing a block under ultrasound guidance effectively requires skill; however, inexperienced anesthesiologists often use high-dose LA to ensure success. We aimed to share our experience with the ultrasound-guided infraclavicular brachial plexus block (USGICB) for upper extremity surgeries and to determine changes in failure rate and local anesthetic dose administered with gaining adequate experience. With approval from the local ethics committee, a retrospective review of records of 2953 patients who underwent USGICB between November 2011 and March 2015 was performed for evaluating the following data: ...

In this study, we compared the effects of intermittent pneumatic compression along with conventional treatment with cold-pack treatment along with conventional treatment on clinical outcomes in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Methods: Eighty-nine patients with knee osteoarthritis participated in this study. One group received ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, electrical stimulation, exercise, and cold packs. The second group received ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, electrical stimulation, exercise, and intermittent pneumatic compression. Range of motion, muscle streng...

Conclusions: The newly developed HIPER-500® for high-frequency deep heat therapy showed similar effects to those of SonoStim® for relieving pain and improving physical performance in the patients of this study. HIPER-500® may be a useful modality for treating shoulder pain and improving physical activity in patients with shoulder disease. PMID: 31191789 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 14 June 2019Source: Journal of Bioscience and BioengineeringAuthor(s): Li Peng, Qin Ye, Xiaoying Liu, Shulai Liu, Xianghe MengAqueous enzymatic extraction of Camellia sinensis oil was studied. The results suggested that saponin removal pretreatment assisted by ultrasound was effective in decreasing emulsification and in enhancing the free oil recovery. After 70% isopropanol extraction for 30 min under ultrasound, the residue of C. sinensis seeds was further hydrolyzed with free cellulase and Alcalase for 5 h, and calcium ions were concurrently added during enzymatic hydrolysis (...

Introduction In healthy individuals, cerebral blood flow (CBF) increases during exercise, but few studies have compared changes in CBF during exercise in patients with heart failure (HF) to healthy controls (CTRL) or assessed the effects of left ventricular assist devices (LVAD). We hypothesized that subjects implanted with LVAD would exhibit impaired cerebrovascular responses to cycle exercise when compared with age- and sex-matched healthy CTRL subjects but would have enhanced responses relative to subjects with HF. Methods Internal carotid artery (ICA) blood flow and intracranial middle (MCAv) and posterior cerebra...
