The purpose of this study is to evaluate the frequency of pneumothorax following orthognathic surgery and describe its clinical presentation. A retrospective analysis of a hospital database was carried out on consecutive patients with normal presurgical clinical assessment, laboratory findings, and chest X-ray who underwent orthognathic surgery from January 2007 to September 2018 in the Department of Oral and Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. Two patients (0.038%), 1 male (age 20 years) and 1 female (age 32 years), complained of respiratory difficulty an...

While in the last years, sci-fi stories, experts and even some opinion-leader public figures frequently spelled the end of mankind through artificial intelligence, lately, it turned out just how easy it is to play tricks on smart algorithms and fool them into making errors. We looked around how researchers can hack A.I. and what that means for medicine and healthcare, mainly from a security perspective. Does A.I. have an Achilles heel? As the saying goes, a chain is as strong as its weakest link – and the ancient Greeks knew it. No matter that Achilles had extraordinary strength, courage, and loyalty, that he f...

By LUKE OAKDEN-RAYNER A huge new CT brain dataset was released the other day, with the goal of training models to detect intracranial haemorrhage. So far, it looks pretty good, although I haven’t dug into it in detail yet (and the devil is often in the detail). The dataset has been released for a competition, which obviously lead to the usual friendly rivalry on Twitter: Of course, this lead to cynicism from the usual suspects as well. And the conversation continued from there, with thoughts ranging from “but since there is a hold out test set, how can you overfit?” to &ldquo...

Smoke-measuring smart shirts, breath sound analyzing algorithms, and smart inhalers pave the way of pulmonology and respiratory care into the future. As the number of patients suffering from asthma, COPD, or lung cancer due to rising air pollution and steady smoker-levels will unfortunately not decrease any time soon, we looked around what technology can do to help both patients and caregivers. The results are breathtaking. Attacks of breathlessness are too common The diseases which pulmonologists and respiratory care specialists attempt to fight are among the most common conditions in the modern world – and t...

ConclusionsThis study shows that LUS is highly feasible and frequently detects postoperative pulmonary complications after major abdominal surgery. Discordant observations in atelectasis and pleural effusions for LUS and CXR can be explained by a superior diagnostic ability of LUS in detecting these conditions. The effects of LUS as primary imaging modality on patient outcome should be evaluated in future studies.
