Authors: Yalcin S, Kaya E, Ebiloglu T, Akay S, Zor M, Sarıkaya S, Yilmaz S, Bedir S Abstract OBJECTIVES: In this research, we designed a cognitive fusion(CF) prostate biopsy(PB) (CFPB) technique by examining the multiparametric MRI of prostate (MP_MRI-P) images in a smart-phone near the trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) device, and examined the results. METHODS: Between January 2011 and January 2017, a total of 344 men who had PB enrolled in this study. Group 1 had a minimum of a 12-core standard TRUS PB (TRUSPB). Group 2 had CFPB while examining the MP_ MRI-P images in a smartphone near the TRUS device. A minimu...

Authors: Park MG, Cho MC, Cho SY, Lee JW Abstract OBJECTIVES: To compare the antibiotic susceptibility of Escherichia coli (E. coli) between community- acquired acute bacterial prostatitis (CA-ABP) and ABP following transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (Bx-ABP). METHODS: A total of 4,383 patients underwent prostate biopsy from January 2005 to June 2014. Among these patients, 34 had Bx-ABP; of which 22 patients had E. coli identified in their urine or blood culture. E. coli was also identified in 91 out of 209 patients with CA-ABP in urine or blood culture. We investigated patient and microbiological ch...

Authors: Zea-Vera A, Turín CG, Rueda MS, Guillén-Pinto D, Medina-Alva P, Tori A, Rivas M, Zegarra J, Castañeda A, Cam L, Ochoa TJ Abstract To describe the frequency and severity of intraventricular hemorrhage and periventricular leukomalacia in low birth-weight neonates in three hospitals in Lima, Peru, 385 newborn babies weighing under 2,000 g at birth were evaluated between May 2012 and July 2014. Brain ultrasounds were obtained at 40 weeks' gestation, 3-5 days of life, and 3-4 weeks of life. Intraventricular hemorrhage occurred in 19.2% of neonates weighing under 1,500 g and was severe (grad...

ConclusionThis study allowed us, by removing the entire septum as a whole structure, to redefine the concept of the septum as a complex structure based on islands of muscle fibers irregularly arranged in vertex, in a context of collagen tissue, similar to the structure of myomas. It appears to deeply involve the anterior and posterior uterine wall, resembling a “reverse letter H”.

The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of local-focused ultrasound (FUS) heating (∼42-45 °C) and in-situ anti-CD-40 agonistic antibody in enhancing T-cell function for melanoma immunotherapy. We compared the following groups of mice with bilateral flank B16 F10 melanoma: (1) Control, (2) FUS, (3) CD-40, and (4) CD-40 + FUS (FUS40). FUS heating was applied for ∼15 min in right flank tumor, and intratumoral injections of CD-40 were performed sequentially within 4 h. A total of 3 FUS and 4 anti-CD-40 treatments were administered unilaterally 3 days apart...

CONCLUSIONS: This smartphone application coupled with targeting device can be used in various settings such as EVD placement in hydrocephalus and in other brain targeting candidates in emergency settings. Also, it may be used in any emergency or neurosurgery department centers with no access to advanced neuro-imaging facilities, only using patient's simple cranial measures to achieve acceptable and highly accurate brain targeting compared with conventional, time consuming and costly techniques. We plan to expand this study to clinical trials for further evaluation. PMID: 31802048 [PubMed - in process]
