RESUMO O traumatismo card íaco é comum em acidentes com veículos automotores. Uma mulher com 50 anos de idade foi transportada para nosso hospital após sofrer múltiplos traumatismos em um acidente de automóvel quando dirigia em alta velocidade. Após admissão à unidade de terapia intensiva, uma ultrassonografia cardí aca revelou ruptura traumática de músculo papilar da valva tricúspide e forame oval patente, enquanto se observou, no exame físico, o sinal de Lancisi. Foi realizado tratamento cirúrgico com anuloplastia da valva e fechamento do forame oval patente; durante o ato cirúrgico, diagnosticou-se rup tura oculta do átrio direito.ABSTRACT Cardiac trauma often occurs in motor vehicle accidents. A 50-year-old female driver was transported to our hospital with multiple trauma after a high-speed car accident. After admission to the intensive care unit, cardiac ultrasound examination revealed traumatic tricuspid valve papillary muscle rupture and patent foramen ovale, while Lancisi's sign was noted on physical examination. Surgical treatment was performed with valve annuloplasty and closure of the patent foramen ovale and a covert right atrial defect that was detected intraoperatively.
Authors: Chen T, Gilfix B, Rivera JA, Sadeghi N, Richardson K, Hier MP, Forest VI, Fishman D, Caglar D, Pusztaszeri M, Mitmaker EJ, Payne RJ Abstract Though the current gold standard for diagnosing thyroid nodule malignancy is ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (USFNA) cytology, about 20-25% of cytological evaluations are considered indeterminate for malignancy. This limitation has led to the emergence of next-generation sequencing panels, e.g. ThyroSeq v3 (TSv3), which recognize highly-diagnostic genetic mutations of common thyroid carcinomas in FNA samples and classifies them as test-negative or test-positi...

CONCLUSIONS: In EUA, physical and mood disorders are associated with new and old inflammatory serological, clinical and imaging biomarkers. HLA-DRB1*11-positivity may be protective against these disease-related features. PMID: 32242813 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: The addition of MUS to clinical evaluation of RA outpatients in remission did not prevent worsening PROs at 6 months. PMID: 32242808 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The objective of the paper is to study cases of premalignant and malignant tumors, with a view to their imagistic identification confirmed in terms of histopathology, to highlight the accuracy of the imagistic examination as an important factor in the diagnosis and adaptation of an appropriate therapeutic attitude. The study was performed on a batch of 768 patients admitted to the Department of Surgery III, "Prof. Dr. Alexandru Trestioreanu" Institute of Oncology, Bucharest, Romania. The classical examined hypothesis is local examination, mammography, ultrasound, with its variations, and histopathological (HP) co...

ConclusionPreoperative US should be used as the first line in predicting minimal ETE, and MRI should be added in extensive ETE assessment. Compared with US, MRI had higher specificity and PPV in detecting the overall ETE of PTC.
e S Abstract CME Sonography 90: Tumors and Nodules of the Hand Abstract. In this CME, which focuses on ultrasound of the musculoskeletal system, we concentrate on tumors and nodules on the hand and fingers. Firstly, the main focus is on device adjustment and image quality optimization. Second, individual tumors and nodules are discussed clinically and sonographically. Here we divide the tumors and nodules according to their anatomical localization: skin and subcutaneous tissue, muscles and tendons, nerves, vessels, bones and joints.
