Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy through a cervical esophageal fistula. An alternative, much improved technique for patient safety
ConclusionThe use of the esophageal fistula at the anterior cervical region as a route for PEG insertion is a safe and practical alternative, highly to be recommended.
CONCLUSION: Microwave ablation afforded rapid and simple haemostasis for adults with recurrent anterior epistaxis in an out-patient setting. Microwave ablation had significant advantages compared to silver nitrate cautery when used to treat epistaxis in patients with convex lesions. PMID: 32066510 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Ocular trauma is one of the most common and vision-threatening ophthalmic presentations with a wide spectrum of complications, such as bleeding, infection, vision loss, and enucleation. A 64-year-old-male presented to the emergency department (ED) with a s...
ConclusionPneumorrachis is usually asymptomatic and is self-limiting. It is a radiological diagnosis and is not a clinical diagnosis. CT scan is considered the preferred diagnostic method for reliable and rapid detection of pneumorrachis. In case of coexistence, The physician should be alert to diagnose and treat the underlying cause for related injuries.In such cases, successful results can be obtained with hyper-oxy therapy (100% oxygen inhalation) and antibiotic prophylaxis without the need for surgical treatment.

Race-based disparities are well documented in the entire spectrum of care for patients with chronic liver disease. The purpose of this study was to determine whether patient race impacts survival following transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation for acute variceal bleeding.
Black patients are subject to documented disparities in the entire spectrum of chronic liver disease care, from screening to treatment and transplant organ access. Whether this racial inequity exists in access to endoscopy and/or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation is not known. We analyzed rates of endoscopy and TIPS during admissions for acute variceal bleeding in a national cohort.
Health care reimbursement occurs through private insurance or government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). We evaluate the models of physician payments and discuss current policies affecting interventional radiology (IR) practices.
To identify risk factors for major bleeding following ultrasound (US)-guided random renal biopsy by microscopic analysis and comparison of the cores obtained in patients with and without bleeding.
The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of bleeding complications and diagnostic yield of the transjugular renal biopsy (TJRB) procedure in the current literature.
