Incidence and distribution of lower extremity reflux in patients with pelvic venous insufficiency.

CONCLUSION: At least 50% of patients with pelvic venous insufficiency present with lower extremity venous disease. The incidence of reflux in any axial vein is greatest in the OVR group suggesting a correlation with hormonal fluctuations and pregnancy. The majority of symptomatic patients present with segmental axial GSV or SSV disease. Although vulvar and gluteal escape veins are highly associated with pelvic venous insufficiency, they are infrequently observed. In patients who experience residual or persistent symptoms after treatment for chronic venous disorders, a pelvic venous ultrasound should be performed to assess the presence of pelvic venous insufficiency.

Authors: Ewy S, Pham H, Quan K, Su B, Tachdjian R Abstract Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a rare blistering skin disease that is commonly treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents. Here, we present a 74-year-old woman with severe BP following a leg fracture who was successfully treated with omalizumab. We started her on a regimen of omalizumab 300 mg subcutaneously every 4 weeks, and within a week she reported significantly decreased pain and faster healing time of lesions. Incidentally, bilateral erythematous, non-blistering dermatitis developed 5 centimeters distal to the injection sites within a week...

We present a patient with refractory neuropathic pain in a normotrophic spread-scar treated with the injection of BTA. A 47-year-old Caucasian female with a history of invasive melanoma of the left upper arm presented with pain in her excision scar, which she described as a “pins and needles” sensation alternating with a dull, deep ache. She had previously tried topical lidocaine, topical and intralesional steroids, and oral gabapentin without improvement. We treated the patient with 50 U of onabotulinumtoxinA intradermally at 1-1.5 cm intervals within and immediately around the perimeter of the scar. At 1-wee...

Conclusions: Lung ultrasound may help highlight pulmonary gangrene, a poorly-known disease, with this new ultrasonographic description. The next step will be to ascertain the relation between this new ultrasound feature and pulmonary gangrene and to assess how this bedside diagnosis could impact the prognosis of the disease.

Objectives: We aimed to describe changes over time in admissions and outcomes, including length of stay, discharge destinations, and mortality of cirrhotic patients admitted to the ICU for variceal bleeding, and to compare it to the outcomes of those with other causes of ICU admissions. Design: Retrospective analysis of data captured prospectively in the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society Centre for Outcome and Resource Evaluation Adult Patient Database. Settings: One hundred eighty-three ICUs in Australia and New Zealand. Patients: Consecutive admissions to these ICUs for upper gastrointestinal b...

CONCLUSIONS Arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction currently appears to be the method of choice in unreconstructed supraspinatus and infraspinatus tear. Our group of patients shows that early clinical outcomes of SCR using xenograft are very promising. A significant pain relief and a considerable improvement in the range of motion of the operated shoulder joint were observed. No complication specifically associated with the use of xenograft has been reported as yet. A longer follow-up period and assessment of a larger group of patients will be necessary to confirm the success of this surgical procedure. Key words: ma...

Rosenbaum J Abstract PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a serious and fairly frequent disorder with prevalence increasing with age which often results in a disability. The surgical procedures are often very risky due to the greater age of patients with severe stenosis and their comorbidities. The study aimed to assess the functional outcomes and complications in patients who underwent surgical treatment for LSS at one year postoperatively and to identify the differences in the functional outcomes, if any, in dependence on the number of operated segments. MATERIAL AND METHODS It was a prospective ...

aacute;č P Abstract The team of authors presents a case of the patient who suffered an isolated unstable extra-articular distal ulnar fracture, the surgical treatment of which was affected by a postponed management in consequence of inadequate primary treatment. The primary non-operative treatment resulted in a complex malunion ad latus, ad axim and ad peripheriam. The malunion which led to a painful restricted range of motion of the forearm (59%), decreased hand grip strength and significant limitation of activities of daily living was surgically treated by a triplane corrective osteotomy at 11 months after inju...

Publication date: Available online 16 September 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Hojong ChoiAbstractCompared with low-frequency (≤15 MHz) ultrasonic transducers, high-frequency ultrasonic transducers provide higher spatial resolutions while reducing the echo-signal amplitudes and bandwidths owing to the size reduction of the piezoelectric materials. Therefore, performance improvement of high-frequency ultrasonic transducers can enhance the performance of the whole ultrasound instrument. To improve the echo-signal quality, such as the amplitudes, signal distortions, and bandwidths, negative-group-d...
