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.

In conclusion, this study explores the physiological in-situ response of knee cartilage and meniscus, based on stress MRI, and as a function of loading intensity, joint alignment, histological tissue status, and biomechanical properties, as another step towards clinical implementation.

Abstract Even though bariatric surgery is one of the most effective treatment option of obesity, post-surgical weight loss is not always ensured, especially in the long term, when many patients experience weight regain. Bariatric procedures are largely based on surgeon's expertise and intra-operative decisions, while an integrated in-silico approach could support surgical activity. The effects of bariatric surgery on gastric distension, which activates the neural circuitry promoting satiety, can be considered one of the main factors in the operation success. This aspect can be investigated trough computational mod...
Abstract The optic nerve sheath (ONS) is biomechanically important. It is acted on by tension due to ocular movements, and by fluid shifts and/or alterations in intracranial pressure (ICP) in human disease, specifically in pathologies leading to intracranial hypertension. It has also been hypothesized that the ONS is acted on by altered ICP in astronauts exposed chronically to microgravity. However, a non-invasive method to quantify ONS biomechanical properties is not presently available; knowledge of such properties is desirable to allow characterization of the biomechanical forces exerted on the optic nerve head...
Authors: Yamak Altinpulluk E, Turan A Abstract Regional anesthesia has a very interesting long history, initially preferred over general anesthesia because of safety concerns, then for a period general anesthesia became safer and was preferred. The use of innovative technologies such as ultrasound technology has made the blocks safer and successful by directly visualizing targeted nerves and the location of local anesthetics. With the wide use of ultrasound in the regional anesthesia field success rate of peripheral nerve blocks increased and novel blocks techniques developed. Moreover, new extended-release local a...
CONCLUSIONS: Lung ultrasound in combination with hs-cTnT showed a better test accuracy than hs-cTnT alone and might guide clinicians to identify vascular patients at increased risk for MINS. PMID: 32959629 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: We developed and compared five models for the detection of lesions in white light endoscopic images. ResNet50 showed the optimal performance, and Mask R-CNN model could be used to locate and classify lesions in images containing lesions. PMID: 32952602 [PubMed - in process]
