Clinical Application of a Specific Simulation Software for 3-Dimensional Orbital Volume Modeling for Orbital Wall Reconstruction

In this study, we developed a new 3-dimensional (3D) preoperative planning software and investigated its effectiveness by measuring orbital volume change. Fifty-six patients who underwent unilateral orbital wall reconstruction between December 2015 and February 2018 in our institute were recruited. We developed an orbit-specific automatic 3D modeling software (Osteopore CMF 3D) that can automatically detect orbital fracture site, process mirroring, measure volume, and then produce a customized orbital implant. Using preoperative and postoperative 3D computed tomography, orbital volume was measured and compared between Osteopore CMF 3D and the widely used Mimics. Intraclass correlation coefficient between Osteopore CMF 3D and Mimics showed 90.6% concordance for preoperative injured site orbital volume and 86.7% concordance for postoperative orbital volume, both being statistically significant (preoperative intraclass correlation coefficient, 0.906 [confidence interval {CI}, 0.840–0.945; P

CONCLUSION: In peritoneal dialysis patients, spironolactone did not attenuate the progression of CC. However, large-scale studies are needed to confirm this observation. Disorders of mineral metabolism and dyslipidemia are involved in the progression of CC. PMID: 31419271 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ReinholdAbstractUterine leiomyomas, the most frequent benign myomatous tumors of the uterus, often cannot be distinguished from malignant uterine leiomyosarcomas using clinical criteria. Furthermore, imaging differentiation between both entities is frequently challenging due to their potential overlapping features. Because a suspected leiomyoma is often managed conservatively or with minimally invasive treatments, the misdiagno...

ConclusionThe migrated IUD in the bladder was successfully and completely extracted by the method combining various endoscopes; operative time was 56 minutes. In the follow-up period the patient did not report any symptoms of frequency urination. This surgical process has the following characteristics: Preoperative examination should be performed to clarify the ectopic site of the IUD, various endoscopes should be combined for diagnosis and treatment, and endoscopic surgery is an effective treatment method for migrated IUD.

ConclusionIn case of acute maxillary sinusitis with premaxillary edema, premaxillary abscess should be suspected. The high recurrence rate argues for maximalist surgery associated to close clinical monitoring with radiological examination.

Conclusions: The findings of the present study suggest that the phenotypic characteristics of EOM closely resemble those of otitis media associated with EGPA in early stages before the appearance of vasculitis. Therefore, it is challenging to differentiate the two conditions purely on the basis of otorhinological examinations.

Conclusion: Medication-related osteonecrosis of the temporal bone is not a well-known entity among otolaryngologists and could therefore be misclassified as another diagnosis. In patients with othorrea and earache following sorafenib treatment, temporal bone osteonecrosis should be suspected.

In conclusion, enchondroma growth was a rare event and typically occurred at two years follow-up in our series. Given the low risk for malignant transformation, we propose surveillance with plain radiographic follow-up for stable enchondromas every 3-6 months for the first year and then annually for at least three years of total follow-up. The most significant costs savings can be made by limiting MRI imaging in the absence of clinical or radiographic concern. Additional studies are needed to determine the long-term risk of growth or declaration of chondrosarcoma.Level of Evidence: IV. PMID: 31413693 [PubMed - in process]

Infection and inflammation are a common occurrence with orthopaedic procedures. Anatomical modalities can show the transformation in the disease process; however, these may occur later when compared with functional imaging modalities that are more likely to identify early disease patterns. Various molecular imaging modalities such as three-phase bone scintigraphy, labelled leucocyte scintigraphy, as well as radiolabelled antibiotics and immunoglobulins have been considered and have played key roles in assisting clinical decision-making. While 18F-flurodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/computed tomography (CT) has been relatively well...
