Percutaneous hook wire assistance during laparoscopic excision of an intrarenal mass.

Percutaneous hook wire assistance during laparoscopic excision of an intrarenal mass. Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 2019 Jun 03;:e1-e3 Authors: Kouriefs C, Georgiades F, Michaelides M, Ioannides K, Kouriefs A, Grange P Abstract Completely endophytic renal tumours pose challenges in laparoscopic nephron-sparing tumour excisions, with the use of intraoperative imaging techniques (e.g. ultrasound) being crucial when managing such tumours. The use of a percutaneous hookwire for tumour localisations are in use in several other surgical fields, such as breast surgery. An asymptomatic 52-year-old man presented with an incidental small right sided solid 33-mm interpolar renal mass identified on computed tomography. A guided insertion of a percutaneous localisation wire was carried out prior to a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy to assist in intraoperative tumour landmark/margins identification. Operative time was 210 minutes with zero ischaemia time, with an estimated blood loss of 200 ml. No perioperative complications were observed and the patient was discharged two days postoperatively. Histology revealed the mass to be a Fuhrman grade 2 clear-cell carcinoma with a 2-mm clear surgical margin. The patient remained free of recurrence at 16 months of follow-up. We have reported our first experience of wire localisation prior to laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for an intrarenal mass, which to our knowledge could be the first of its kind in renal surgery. Percutaneous wi...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 105Author(s): Abdul Wahab Jatoi, Ick Soo Kim, Hiroshi Ogasawara, Qing-Qing NiAbstractAlthough silver based nanofibers possess excellent bactericidal and bacteriostatic characteristics. However, excess release/contact with silver may induce harmful side-effects including carcinoma, argyria, argyrosis and allergies. Similarly, silver depletion may limit prolonged antibacterial activities as well. Thus present research proposes electrospun CA/ZnO/AgNPs composite nanofibers for biologically safer and sustained antibacterial applications. The Zn...

Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...

This study aims to evaluate whether genetic variants in autophagy-related genes (ATGs) affect the development of HCC.Materials and methodsWe conducted a case-control study with 986 HCC cases and 1000 healthy controls to analyze 14 functional variants of five ATGs (ATG3, ATG5, ATG10, ATG12 and ATG16L1) among a Chinese population.Key findingsWe found ATG5 rs17067724 (G vs A: OR = 0.80; 95% CI = 0.65–0.98; P = 0.031), ATG10 rs1864183 (G vs A: OR = 1.29; 95% CI = 1.07–1.57; P = 0.009), ATG10 rs10514231 (C vs T: OR = 1.41; 95% CI = 1.15–1.73; P = 0.001), ATG12 rs26537 (C vs ...
