Learning Objectives: After reading this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand the basics of negative-pressure wound therapy and practical uses of various vacuum-assisted closure dressings. 2. Understand the mechanisms of action of negative-pressure therapies and other important adjuncts, such as perfusion imaging. 3. Discuss the evidence for hyperbaric oxygen therapy in wound care. Summary: Wound healing requires creating an environment that supports the healing process while decreasing inflammation and infection. Negative-pressure wound therapy has changed the way physicians manage acute and chron...

Background: In deep inferior epigastric perforator flap surgery, the amount of perfusion achievable in the contralateral side over a midline is unclear. Predicting contralateral perfusion preoperatively using computed tomographic angiography will allow efficient breast reconstruction with decreased complications. The authors used computed tomographic angiography to determine whether contralateral perfusion is related to blood vessel status across the midline. Methods: Preoperative computed tomographic angiography scans and intraoperative perfusion in patients who underwent breast reconstruction with a deep inferior ep...

Conclusion: A better prognosis can be obtained by administering repeated doses rather than a single high dose of hyaluronidase.

CONCLUSION: Multimodal imaging enables distinction between active and inactive lesions, thus supporting therapeutic management. Choroidal presentation of active disseminated mycobacterium infection indicates activity of systemic disease. Thus, even if the patient is not immunocompromised, an underlying systemic involvement should be ruled out. PMID: 32219781 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The findings of this study indicated that non-HDL-C/HDL-C plays an important role in the risk and progression of CAD. These findings need verification by further large-scale prospective studies. PMID: 32219140 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a case of a 52-year-old woman accessed to the emergency department for chest and right upper limb pain that increased in the last days. She underwent a computed tomography angiogram showing interruption of the aortic arch, distal to left subclavian artery origin, large bilateral collateral vessels connecting subclavian arteries to descending aorta with multiple voluminous aneurysms, a bicuspid aortic valve, dilatated tubular segment of ascending thoracic aorta, and a suspected atrial septal defect. A nonsystematic literature review regarding these conditions has been performed.

Long-term data relating coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) to coronary artery disease (CAD) prognosis including novel CTA-biomarkers ( “high–risk plaque criteria”) is scarce. The aim of this study was to define predictors of long-term outcomes.

Written by Pendell Meyers, case submitted by Tom FieroA man in his 30s walked into the ED complaining of chest pain. His triage ECG was done at 11:30 (no prior was available):What do you think?Sinus tachycardiaNormal QRS complex pattern, with borderline low voltageVery slight STE in leads V2-V5Proportionally large and fat T-waves in V4-5 with straightening of the ST segmentsT-waves also concerning in II, III, aVF, with inappropriately negative T-waves in aVLUsing the LAD OMI vs. BER formula:3 Variable: 27.34 (positive for OMI, using STE60V3=1.5mm, QTc=444, RWV4=2.0mm)4 Variable: 23.01 (positive for OMI, using QRS amplitude...

Authors: Ge B, Wei Y Abstract BACKGROUND Cerebral angiography, or intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA), is a fluoroscopic imaging technique. In China, until recently, transfemoral access (TFA) has been used, rather than transradial access (TRA). This retrospective study aimed to compare transfemoral cerebral angiography (TFCA) with transradial cerebral angiography (TRCA) consecutively performed by the same operator, at a single center in China, to determine whether there were benefits from the shift from TFA to TRA in terms of efficiency, safety, and feasibility. MATERIAL AND METHODS A review of 1,0...
