Authors: Crapé L, Strubbe B, Cesmeli E, de Clerck F Abstract A 24-year-old male presented with abdominal pain, postprandial vomiting and weight loss. Lab results showed an elevated serum eosinophil count and CT-scan demonstrated a thickened antral, duodenal and jejunal wall. Repetitive endoscopic mucosal biopsies were normal. Work-up of eosinophilia-associated gastro-intestinal disorders excluded secondary causes. Bone marrow showed an elevated eosinophil count without arguments for a primary hypereosinophilic syndrome. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle biopsy detected a strongly elevated number of eo...

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Lauren M. Styczynski, Katie A. Schappacher, Mark L. BacceiAbstractEarly life administration of vincristine (VNC), commonly used to treat pediatric leukemia, evokes peripheral neuropathy and mechanical pain hypersensitivity in rats that lasts into adolescence. However, the degree to which VNC-evoked neuropathic pain persists throughout adulthood has yet to be examined. It also remains unclear if pediatric VNC exposure can ‘prime’ developing nociceptive pathways and thereby exacerbate chronic pain following subsequent trauma ...

ConclusionThese results support the theory that underlying neurometabolite levels may be unique in different pain conditions and therefore representative of biomarkers for specific pain conditions.

AbstractSingle-site hysterectomy (SSH) laparoscopic or robotic presented distinct advantages with regards to postoperative cosmetic outcome, wound-related complications and morbidity. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of robotic and laparoscopic SSH in patients with benign or early-stage malignant gynecological conditions and to compare the two approaches. A systematic search of four electronic databases for articles published up to September 2019 was performed. Studies reporting outcomes for women who underwent robotic or laparoscopic SSH were considered eligible. A total of 6 studies with 412 patients were included. A...

aría Ruzafa-Martínez César Hueso-Montoro The aim of this article was to explore the experiences and attitudes of people with HIV/AIDS. A systematic review of qualitative studies was carried out. Twenty-seven articles were included, with sample sizes ranging from 3 to 78. Articles from North America, South America, Central America, Europe, and Africa were included. Five topics emerged from the synthesis: feelings about the diagnosis of HIV/AIDS; stigma and HIV/AIDS; changes in sexual behavior after becoming infected; living with the virus; and pregnancy and motherhood in seropositive women. The mo...

This report presents the case of a 63-year-old man who presented with recurrent visible haematuria and loin pain 18 months after open partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. A computed tomography urogram revealed three obstructing calculi in the mid- to distal ureter with hydronephrosis. Rigid ureteroscopy revealed three calcified objects in the pelvic ureter. These had the appearance of calcified Weck® clips. A laser was used to remove the calcification, confirming the presence of three Weck clips, which had been used for haemostasis during the partial nephrectomy. These were removed with graspers after balloon ...

Conclusions: We believe that cases with free intraperitoneal air should promptly undergo laparotomy to identify the cause of the pneumoperitoneum. Moreover, an immediate nephrectomy may be effective for the treatment of emphysematous pyelonephritis in cases with poor prognostic factors.
