Ultrasonography findings in immunoglobulin G4-related lymphadenopathy: a report of two cases.
Ultrasonography findings in immunoglobulin G4-related lymphadenopathy: a report of two cases. Med Ultrason. 2020 Mar 01;22(1):107-109 Authors: Morisaki T, Fukuhara T, Matsuda E, Moritani S, Miyake N, Koyama S, Fujiwara K, Takeuchi H Abstract Lymphadenopathy is frequently observed in immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease in some cases, and such cases are known as IgG4-related lymphadenopathy. The ultrasonography findings associated with IgG4-related lymphadenopathy have not been described in previous reports. Herein, we describe ultrasonography findings in two cases of IgG4-related lymphadenopathy in conjunction with histopathological findings. Combined ultrasound scanning with Doppler examination accurately represented the specific histopathological features of IgG4-related lymphadenopathy.

ConclusionsBuilding upon the information gained, an optimum inactivation can be reached via raising of power density up to 1200 W and simultaneous lowering of frequency down to 27 kHz. In addition, the combination of the two physical methods UV treatment and ultrasound may yield optimum results without the need of substance removal after the procedure.
AbstractLymph node assessment is an essential component of the treatment of lung cancer. Identification of the correct “N” stage is important for staging which in turn determines treatment. Assessment of lymph nodes may be accomplished using imaging with CT scan and PET–CT, invasive techniques such as mediastinoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) or endoscopic ultrasoun d fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Ultimately, regardless of any pre-resection assessment, lymph nodes must be assessed at the time of resection. The question to be addressed in this report is the ...
CONCLUSION: Penetrating trauma in children and adolescents is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. There are similarities with the management of these injuries in adults, but further work is required to ensure that paediatric management algorithms are evidence based.

Abstract Background Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) is the main cause of chronic leg ulcers. Varicose veins are the most frequent cause of venous leg ulcers (VLU). 50.9% of Brazilian women have varicose veins and ulcer prevalence is as high as 4%. Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is a low-cost treatment option for varicose veins. Objectives To analyze UGFS outcomes in patients with VLU. Methods Prospective consecutive single center cohort study. Patients with great saphenous vein (GSV) reflux and VLU were treated and followed-up for 180 days. The following were studied: quality of life (QoL), disease severity, heal...
ConclusionCholangiocarcinoma arising from BP is a proper indication for hepatopancreatoduodenectomy. The long-term oncologic benefits might outweigh the possible perioperative complications.5,6
CONCLUSION: This case highlights the utility of LT as a viable treatment option for acute sickle cell intrahepatic cholestasis. PMID: 32231764 [PubMed]
Conclusion The RRI, a sub-clinical renal parameter is an atherosclerotic marker in patients without renal impairment. PMID: 32238661 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Diagnostic Imaging's Week in Review, April 3, 2020.
Heart failure (HF) is the most common cause of transudative pleural effusion and the second most common cause of pleural effusion overall 1-3. The incidence of pleural effusion in acute HF is estimated at 46% based on the plain radiographic diagnosis. Its incidence may reach as high as 85-90% when using a more sensitive diagnostic modality such as ultrasound or computerized tomography scan 1,4. Thoracentesis (THR) is widely utilized to improve symptoms of patients with HF 5. However, the actual prognostic value of THR in HF has been sparsely reported with only one study reporting a 22% mortality rate at 30-days and 53% at ...
CONCLUSIONS: The scoring system was easy to use. A score of ≥1 could be used to counsel women who have a high likelihood of viable pregnancy beyond the first trimester. PMID: 32245913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
