Hypertrophic olivary degeneration after surgical resection of brain tumors.

ConclusionHOD can be caused after neurosurgical intervention of brain tumors involving the Guillain-Mollaret triangle. It is important for radiologists to distinguish HOD from tumor recurrence. PMID: 23486559 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

al-Filho DC Abstract Carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) has long been used as an ovarian cancer biomarker. However, because it is not specific for ovarian cells, CA125 could also be used to monitor congestion and inflammation in heart disease. Acute heart failure (HF) is used to identify patients with a worse prognosis in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We aimed to determine the association of CA125 with acute HF in STEMI and to compare CA125 with N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP) with a cross-sectional study. At admission, patients were examined to define Killip class and then ...

CONCLUSIONS The prevalence of initial bone metastasis was approximately 8.0% in esophageal cancer patients. More attention should be paid to patients with revealed risk and prognostic factors because these factors can guide individualize bone metastasis screening and treatment of esophageal cancer patients.

We describe a feature, give a location, and then synthesise a conclusion. For example: There is an irregular mass with microcalcification in the upper outer quadrant of the breast. Findings are consistent with malignancy. You don’t need to understand the words I used here, but the point is that the features (irregular mass, microcalcification) are consistent with the diagnosis (breast cancer, malignancy). A doctor reading this report already sees internal consistency, and that reassures them that the report isn’t wrong. An common example of a wrong report could be: Irregular mass or microcalcificat...

Moreover, changes in microRNAs are found in the peripheral blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and brain tissues in patients of central nervous system diseases, including glioma, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), multiple sclerosis and depression.

Introduction: Cough peak flow (CPF) is a simple measure of cough mechanics, but figures may vary depending on the measurement instrument used.Objectives: to compare CPF measured by a portable peak flow meter (asmaPLAN+, Vitalograph) (CPFa) and by a pneumotacograph (Spirotrac, Vitalograph) with PCF testing dedicated software (CPFe).Results: Fifty-four patients and heathy volunteers (32 male and 22 female) with mean age of 43 years (min 21-max 88) were studied. Forteen had spinal cord injury, 7 multiple sclerosis, 6 stroke, 1 confluent multiple mononeuropathy, 1 motor and sensory polyneuropathy, 1 brain tumor, 1 rheumatoid a...
