Association of midline prostatic cysts and lower urinary tract symptoms: A case ‐control analysis of 606 transrectal ultrasound findings

ConclusionsThe presence of MPCs is not an independent factor for moderate to severe LUTS, and the size of the MPCs does not have any correlation to LUTS scores either.

CONCLUSIONS: The paper demonstrates that the autonomic dysfunction of nervous system (on a par with insulin resistance) is the main link in the development of MetS. This provides the basis for including the mentioned states - cardiac autonomic neuropathy, lower urinary tract symptoms and gastroesophageal reflux disease - into the MetS cluster.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: We sought to develop a machine learning (ML) model for prediction of shoulder dystocia (ShD) and to externally validate the model accuracy and potential clinical efficacy in optimizing the use of cesarean delivery (CD) in the context of suspected macrosomia. STUDY DESIGN: We used electronic health records (EHR) from the Sheba Medical Center in Israel to develop the model (derivation cohort) and EHR from the University of California San Francisco Medical Center to validate the model accuracy and clinical efficacy (validation cohort). Subsequent to inclusion and exclusion criteria, the deriv...

We report the case of a 60-year-old male with poorly controlled insulin dependent diabetes mellitus who presented with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and "peeing air." CT scan revealed air extending from the left renal parenchyma, perinephric fat and into the bladder, consistent with emphysematous pyelonephritis. Bedside point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) subsequently revealed dirty shadowing and reverberation artifacts in the left kidney and the bladder consistent with gas in the urinary collecting system. By understanding the identifying artifacts seen with EPN, reflective shadow and reverberation artifact, th...

lay F Abstract Introduction: Liver cirrhosis (20-25%), hepatocellular carcinoma (1.5-3%), insulin resistance (30-40%) and type 2 diabetes (25-30%) are common complications in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection; however, data are missing from Hungary. Aim: To determine the prevalence of diabetes and insulin resistance in Hungarian HCV patients; to evaluate treatment-induced metabolic changes in relation to diabetes/insulin resistance and virological response and to perform a sustained follow-up for hepatocellular carcinoma detection. Method: We enrolled 150 Hungarian HCV genotype 1 patients (me...
