Difference of Critical Shoulder Angle (CSA) According to Minimal Rotation: Can Minimal Rotation of the Scapula Be Allowed in the Evaluation of CSA?

Conclusions: The X-ray view corresponding to Suter-Henninger classification type A1 or CT-reconstructed image can be used to reduce the measurement error and obtain reliable CSA values. The CSA measured on the X-ray view corresponding to Suter-Henninger classification type A1 may be related with rotator cuff tear. PMID: 31475052 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to reveal the correlation between the radiolucency area around the crown of impacted maxillary canines and dentigerous cysts using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). CBCT data were obtained from patients with impacted maxillary canines. Three points of five areas (tooth cusp area and buccal, lingual, mesial and distal areas of the crown) were randomly selected, and the distance between the point and the surrounding hard tissue was measured respectively. The mean values were recorded as the radiolucency area. These results were compared with the occurrence of dentigerous cysts during surgery. 58 patients...

We report a very rare case of LAM with malignant lymphoma. A 51-year-old female had medical history of recurrent pneumothorax and nephrectomy for a left renal angiomyolipoma and was diagnosed with LAM by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at the age of 30. She presented with left neck mass. Computed tomography and magnetic response imaging showed multiple enlarged cervical lymph nodes. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) showed abnormal uptake in the mass. We suspected a malignant tumor or extrapulmonary lesion of LAM, and performed surgical biopsy. Pathologically, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma ...

ABSTRACT Objective: To describe a case of a male adolescent with symptomatic idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) associated with obesity treated with bariatric surgery. Case description: A 16-year-and-6-month-old severely obese boy [weight: 133.6 kg; height: 1.74 m (Z score: +0.14); BMI: 44.1 kg/m2 (Z score: +4.4)], Tanner pubertal stage 5, presented biparietal, high-intensity, and pulsatile headaches, about five times per week, associated with nocturnal awakenings, and partial improvement with common analgesics, for three months. Ophthalmologic evaluation evidenced bilateral papilledema. Cranial computed tomography...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate whether anatomic and straight stems could reproduce the anteroposterior distance (AD) of the native femoral head and evaluate the effect of AD of the femoral head on range of motion (ROM) and bony impingement.MethodsThis retrospective simulation study included 64 patients who had undergone primary total hip arthroplasty between 2012 and 2014. Using computed tomography (CT) –based templating software, anatomic and straight stems were inserted with same alignment. AD of the head centre was compared between the two stems and native anatomy. Furthermore, post-operative ROM was calculated, an...

Authors: Skalický T, Skalický A Abstract The presented case report describes primarily an unrecognized liver injury after the resuscitation with cardiac massage due to myocardial infarction. After myocardial revascularization, the hemodynamic instability and anaemia in the patient persisted. The performed CT scan confirmed a liver injury, namely the rupture of liver parenchyma with hemoperitoneum, which had to be treated surgically. It represents a complication of cardiac massage that occurs, though less frequently. Key words: resuscitation, liver trauma. PMID: 31941573 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS Authors prefer using autologous bone flaps during cranioplasty. In cases where this method is unavailable, a synthetic bone substitute has to be used. The first medium-term experience with the use of a Cranio-Oss implant made of PEEK showed that it is a suitable alternative to the patient's own bone. No complications associated with this synthetic implant were reported and its use to manage skull defects can be strongly recommended. With respect to legal and accreditationrelated difficulties connected with bone fragments storage and thanks to the continuous cost reduction of synthetic implants will their import...

Authors: Kanno H, Yoshizumi T, Nakazato N, Shinonaga M Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: An epidural blood patch (EBP) is a highly effective therapy for spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. However, the factors predicting the response to an EBP have not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to elucidate factors predicting the response to an EBP. METHODS: We retrospectively examined the relationship between the response to an EBP and clinical variables of 118 patients with spinal CSF leakage, such as patient age, sex, etiology, interval from the onset to EBP application, CSF opening pressure (OP),...

During a genetically confirmed RSV outbreak, eight patients underwent both chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT). Among these, 5 cases had newly appearing abnormalities on CT, although chest X-ray was able to detect abnormalities in only 2 cases (40%). Although bronchial wall thickening was com...
