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: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Baldoni M, Lauritano D Abstract Control of bleeding after oral surgery, is mandatory in patients taking anticoagulants. There are different haemostatic measure to prevent post-surgical bleeding. The aim of our study is to use a homeostatic agent, Calcium sulphate (P30, Ghimas, Bologna, Italy) for controlling post-surgical bleeding in a group of patients treated with warfarin therapy for thromboembolic states. Twenty teeth (12 mandibular molars, 8 maxillary molars) in 20 patients (14 men and 6 woman) with a mean age of 54.3 years (± 10.3 years) were included in the study. The patie...

Cowden syndrome (CS) is a multiple hamartoma syndrome associated with the development of various tumors, including endometrial cancer. However, the histology of CS-associated endometrial cancer remains to be fully described. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with CS having endometrial endometrioid carcinoma with ovarian metastasis demonstrating morula-like features. A 31-yr-old, nulliparous, Japanese woman presented with abnormal genital bleeding. Endometrial biopsy revealed endometrioid carcinoma with an extensive morular formation, partially resembling atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM). Moreover, ...

We report a case of a primary cervical angiosarcoma in a 43-yr-old woman who presented with heavy vaginal bleeding. Cervical biopsy and subsequent radical hysterectomy showed a malignant vascular tumor which was composed of spindled and epithelioid cells and formed abortive vascular channels. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were diffusely positive for CD31, CD34, ERG, and cyclin D1 and focally positive for D2-40. A reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test for YWHAE-NUTM2 genetic fusion was negative excluding a YWHAE-translocated high-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma. The tumor formed a 5 cm mass ...

AbstractThe management of patients with early stage (cT1 –T2) tongue squamous cell carcinoma without clinicoradiologic evidence of neck node metastasis (cN0) has been widely debated over the last 3 decades and still remains controversial. Nevertheless, the identification of patients with low-stage tumours at high-risk for occult cervical metastases is i mperative before planning treatments of primary tumours, as well as that of prognostic markers which may possibly select those patients who may benefit of additional workup after surgery in view of the high metastatic potential of the primary tumour. The pre-surgical ...
