Clinical Evaluation of Deployed Military Personnel with Chronic Respiratory Symptoms: STAMPEDE (Study of Active Duty Military for Pulmonary Disease Related to Environmental Deployment Exposures) III.

CONCLUSION: Post-deployment pulmonary evaluation should focus on common diseases such as asthma and airway hyperreactivity, and include testing for upper airway disorders. Diffuse lung diseases were rarely diagnosed while numerous co-morbidities were common. PMID: 32017933 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to assess the relative safety and short-term efficacy of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) and conventional transarterial chemoembolization (c-TACE) for treating peculiar anatomical sites of gastric cancer liver metastasis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Of the 68 patients with gastric cancer liver metastases confirmed by imaging and pathology, 35 were treated with DEB-TACE and 33 with c-TACE. The DEB-TACE group comprised 26 males and 9 females aged 28-75 years (56.8±6.3), and the c-TACE group included 19 males and 14 females aged 33-77 (60.2±9.4) years. Liver functions of th...

This study proposed a classification system and a possible mechanism for stress fractures of the first rib using three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT). The data of 10 stress fractures of the first rib in adolescent athletes obtained using 3D-CT between 2007 and 2018 were reviewed. Fractures of the first rib were classified according to the location and type of the fracture line. Stress fractures of the first rib were classified into three types: type 1, center-transverse fracture; type 2, center to posterior-oblique fracture; and type 3, posterior-transverse fracture. There were three type 1 fractures, five type 2 ...

Recent literature suggests that adults do not necessarily develop osteoarthritis if they have an osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT). The purpose of this study was to determine if children with OLT are at risk to develop any radiographic evidence of early joint degeneration despite treatment efforts. Fifty-six ankles were identified over 6 years with stable OLT that underwent operative treatment. Preoperatively, each lesion was classified according to Berndt-Hardy for radiographs, Hepple for MRI, and Ferkel and Sgaglione for computed tomography. Radiographs were also evaluated for physeal status, OLT characteristics (l...

Tarsal coalitions have been reported in the setting of equinovarus foot deformities, but only as rare isolated findings. Failure to recognize this diagnosis may inhibit successful equinovarus correction. Here, we review a series of tarsal coalitions seen in congenital and neuropathic equinovarus deformity at two institutions, to report the breakdown of types of coalitions encountered, and to suggest methodology to facilitate earlier diagnosis. The records of all patients treated by two of the authors for bilateral equinovarus deformities and found to have either a unilateral or bilateral tarsal coalition between 2006 and 2...
