Virtual reconstruction of unilateral pelvic fractures by using pelvic symmetry

ConclusionThese results allowed us to conclude the validity of this procedure, since the average RMS difference was below 2  mm and the average percentage of points within ± 2 mm was high. The proposed technique will allow surgeons to provide their patients with more accurate reconstruction procedures which can potentially improve surgical outcomes.

CONCLUSION: Nonrandomized comparison of different surgical approaches is challenging. In our experience, 3D-VATS was safe and effective and offered excellent operative perception and sensitivity, enabling safer dissection of hilar structures. The 3D-VATS system helped skilled surgeons beyond the boundaries of more oncologically aggressive surgery. PMID: 32458749 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a 36-year-old man initially presenting with diffuse bone and joint pain who was inappropriately treated for presumed ankylosing spondylitis for 2 years. Whole-body bone scan suggested metabolic bone disease, prompting referral to our endocrine institution. He was subsequently diagnosed with persistent hypophosphataemia, inappropriately high renal tubular phosphate excretion, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 suppression, severe osteoporosis and severe osteomalacia. FGF-23 concentrations (140 ng/L) were raised 3-fold above the upper limit of normal. Initial Gallium-68 (68Ga) DOTATATE positron emission tomography...

Conclusion: Choroidal ganglioneuroma is rare. To our knowledge, no bilateral cases have been described in the literature. Major clinical features include a rapid increase in axial length, diffuse choroidal thickening, hyper-reflectivity in the choroid on optical coherence tomography, and loss of choroidal vasculature on ICGA. The current report provides multimodal imaging of choroidal ganglioneuroma for the first time and can be valuable for early diagnosis. PMID: 32454990 [PubMed]

Authors: Deng J, Zeng W, Shi Y, Kong W, Guo S Abstract Extracting massive features from images to quantify tumors provides a new insight to solve the problem that tumor heterogeneity is difficult to assess quantitatively. However, quantification of tumors by single-mode methods often has defects such as difficulty in features extraction and high computational complexity. The multimodal approach has shown effective application prospects in solving these problems. In this paper, we propose a feature fusion method based on positron emission tomography (PET) images and clinical information, which is used to obtain feat...

Considering that the healthcare industry is expected to exceed  $11 trillion by 2022, it might not come as a surprise that big tech companies like Google, Apple, Facebook or even Uber want a share of this cake. Even if their business is flourishing elsewhere, these companies stand more to gain than green bills. More importantly, investing in healthcare is an adequate way to build user trust. Our latest e-book analyzing those endeavours and more is available here. Tech Giants in Healthcare This comprehensive guide, Tech Giants in Healthcare, clarifies how and wh...

Abstract Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is one of the most researched, clinically utilized gene therapy vectors. Though clinical success has been achieved, transgene delivery and expression may be hindered by cellular and tissue barriers. Understanding the role of receptor binding, entry, endosomal escape, cytoplasmic and nuclear trafficking, capsid uncoating, and viral transcription in therapeutic efficacy is paramount. Previous studies have shown that N-terminal regions of the AAV capsid proteins are responsible for endosomal escape and nuclear trafficking, however the mechanisms remain unknown. We identified a hi...
