Conservative management of uterine adenosarcoma: lessons learned from 20  years of follow-up

ConclusionWhilst radical completion surgery should be advised in UA, this case, in addition to all published conservatively managed cases of UA, demonstrates that conservative management is possible in appropriately selected women. Intensive monitoring post-operatively is essential owing to the risk of recurrence; however, this may pose deleterious side effects which require consideration.

Authors: Ashrafi MR, Amanat M, Garshasbi M, Kameli R, Nilipour Y, Heidari M, Rezaei Z, Tavasoli AR Abstract Introduction: Leukodystrophies constitute heterogenous group of rare heritable disorders primarily affecting the white matter of central nervous system. These conditions are often under-appreciated among physicians. The first clinical manifestations of leukodystrophies are often nonspecific and can occur in different ages from neonatal to late adulthood periods. The diagnosis is, therefore, challenging in most cases.Area covered: Herein, the authors discuss different aspects of leukodystrophies. The authors used...

We report a young 22-year-old female with unknown etiology of a pseudoaneurysm, who was previously managed as a psychiatric case and for musculoskeletal pain. On subsequent investigation and confirmation with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, aneurysmectomy was done. This is a rare case in a young 22-year-old woman with a ventricular pseudoaneurysm of unknown etiology. Considering the high risk for rupture of a ventricular pseudoaneurysm, surgical resection was mandatory with no complications intra- and postprocedure.

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Sarah J. Muldoon, Ian ApplebyAbstractThe volume and range of procedures undertaken by interventional neuroradiologists continues to expand. They are now treating many conditions previously considered untreatable or only amenable to open surgical techniques. To facilitate the close cooperation required between radiologists and anaesthetists necessary for the successful outcome of these complex and lengthy procedures, it is important for the anaesthetist to have an appreciation of the pathophysiology, potential multi...

Authors: Altiparmak B, Toker MK, Uysal Aİ, Kuşçu Y, Demirbilek SG Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this study is to assess the effect of ultrasoung-guided erector spinae block on postoperative opioid consumption after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The secondary aims are to assess the effects of erector spinae plane block on intraoperative fentanyl need and postoperative pain scores. METHODS: Patients between 18-70 years old, ASA I-II were included in the study and randomly allocated into two groups. In Group ESP, patients received bilateral US-ESP with 40ml of 0.25% bupivacaine at...

Publication date: 15 February 2020Source: Materials Chemistry and Physics, Volume 242Author(s): Feng Qin, Bing Li, Lei Chen, Zhongyu ShangAbstractThe measurement of elastic constants is very important to the study of materials. Laser ultrasonic technology has been widely concerned for its unique advantages and used to measure elastic constants, but the current measurement methods have their limitations. In general, traditional measurement methods require the use of a fatigue tester or measurement of all modal waves during the experiment. It is found that cracks can transform the mode of ultrasonic wave, in other words, the...

Conclusions: Laparoscopic partial adrenalectomy using intraoperative indocyanine green dye with near-infrared fluorescence imaging seems to be safe and feasible. This technology may ultimately be helpful in resecting lesions with more precise surgical margins by identifying the vascular structure during laparoscopic partial adrenalectomy.
