Frequency dependence of attenuation and backscatter coefficient of ex vivo human lymphedema dermis

ConclusionFrequency independence of AC and BSC in LE ( −) and LE (+) was confirmed. Several 9- to 19-MHz ultrasound beams are sufficient for BSC analysis to discriminate LE (−) and LE (+) in terms of the penetration depth of the ultrasound.

Pneumatic compression therapy is one of several options for the management of lymphedema. The lack of clarity around clinical outcomes, quality of life, cost of care, and its proper application as a function of lymphedema complexity limit its use in clinical practice. This is compounded by difficulties associated with insurance approval and uncertainty about the role of this modality in the treatment algorithm. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the healthcare economics and value of pneumatic compression therapy for lymphedema.

AbstractIntroductionSurgery by open radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer is associated with sexual dysfunction as well as lymphedema and bladder problems. Our aim was to assess the impact of robot ‐assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (RRH) with pelvic lymphadenectomy for early‐stage cervical cancer on sexual, bowel, bladder, and lymphatic function and to measure ovarian function after RRH.Material and methodsTwenty ‐six women with early‐stage cervical cancer during 2011‐2013 were investigated before and 1 year after RRH using a validated questionnaire measuring psychological well‐being and sexua...

ConclusionMLL remains to be underdiagnosed. Due to the obesity epidemic, clinicians must be aware of this once rare disease. The role of concurrent bariatric surgery with surgical resection of MLL warrants further studies.

ConclusionThis is the first histological analysis of sinus mucosa in patients with YNS. Vascular type, density, size, and distribution in the sinonasal mucosa of YNS patients are not statistically significantly different from those of the CRSsNP group. Lymphatic density and ratio to total vasculature is higher in CRSwNP patients.
