Comparative evaluation of anterior segment optical coherence tomography, ultrasound biomicroscopy, and intraocular pressure changes after panretinal photocoagulation by pascal and conventional laser

Purpose: To compare intraocular pressure, anterior segment optical coherence tomography, and ultrasound biomicroscopy parameters over 3 months after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) for proliferative diabetic retinopathy after 1 of 2 sittings by conventional laser (half PRP) and a single sitting of Pattern Scan Laser (PASCAL) PRP. Methods: This was a prospective, randomized, interventional study. All tests were performed at baseline, and at 1, 6, and 24 hours, and 1, 4, 8, and 12 weeks after PRP. Results: The intraocular pressure at 1 hour and 6 hours after PRP was significantly raised in both groups. Mean intraocular pressure was 21.17 ± 4.01 mmHg after PASCAL and 17.48 ± 3 mmHg after conventional laser at 1 hour, P

We report a case occurring during acitretin treatment for psoriasis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 27-year-old male patient with no history of diabetes, obesity, alcohol consumption or medication consulted for extensive pustular psoriasis. The lipid balance and liver tests were normal. The patient was treated with acitretin at a dose of 25mg/d. Four days after the start of treatment, the patient was admitted to the surgical emergency room for piercing epigastric pain with vomiting of bile, without transit problems. Serum lipase was 20 times the normal value (1278 IU/L). CRP was raised at 155mg/L and triglycerides were norma...

The majority of doctors will tell you that there is nothing you can do to reverse fatty liver and that health problems such as cirrhosis and liver failure may be in your future that they will address with the awful “solution” of liver transplant. The truth is the opposite: fatty liver is easily and readily reversible in virtually everybody, provided you take action before irreversible changes take place and are given the right information and tools. In this video, I discuss the three basic phenomena that drive fat deposition, liver damage, and inflammation that lead to this condition: Carbohydrate consumption ...

The objective of this study is to investigate the association between circulating PCSK9 levels and the presence of hepatic steatosis, as well as with liver biomarkers in a cohort of healthy individuals. METHODS: Total PCSK9 levels were measured by an in-house ELISA using a polyclonal antibody. Plasma albumin, alkaline phosphatase, ALT, AST, total bilirubin and GGT were measured in 698 individuals using the COBAS system. The presence of hepatic steatosis was assessed using ultrasound liver scans. RESULTS: In a multiple regression model adjusted for age, sex, insulin resistance, body mass index and alcohol use, cir...

Abstract Background: Thyroid ultrasound is used for the assessment and characterisation of thyroid nodules/goitres and to guide diagnostic biopsy, it is normally performed by radiologists. Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) by trained non-radiologists, has the potential to reduce cost, expedite diagnosis and enhance patient satisfaction if embedded in an outpatient clinic setting. Aim: To perform a pilot of the use of point of care thyroid ultrasound in an endocrine outpatient setting for the assessment of thyroid nodules and goitres. Methods: Thyroid ultrasound was undertaken with consultant radiologist s...

Pocket-size ultrasound devices that cost 50 times less than the machines in hospitals (and connect to your phone). Virtual reality that speeds healing in rehab. Artificial intelligence that’s better than medical experts at spotting lung tumors. These are just some of the innovations now transforming medicine at a remarkable pace. No one can predict the future, but it can at least be glimpsed in the dozen inventions and concepts below. Like the people behind them, they stand at the vanguard of health care. Neither exhaustive nor exclusive, the list is, rather, representative of the recasting of public health and medic...
