Splenic volume as a biomarker of hepatic damage after chemotherapy in patients with resected colorectal liver metastases (CRLM)

ConclusionsPatients who receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy for liver metastasis surgery have a greater splenic volume increase, which correlates with NAFLD and a lower survival.

Abstract Previous studies evaluating staging methods of lung cancer have focused on mediastinal disease. We explored the added value of endoscopic techniques after PET scan in the evaluation of N1 nodal stations in 276 patients with a radiologically normal mediastinum demonstrating a potential stage shift in 20% of patients.

Conclusions: Adding SRT to RP does not seem to result in other than acceptable side-effects in the majority of men receiving SRT when taking a long follow-up time (median 10 years after surgery) into account. However, a subset of men develop severe side-effects where rectal bleeding dominates. PMID: 32619133 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Larose LD, Vroman PJ, Musick SR, Beauvais AA Abstract A 37-year-old active duty male Air Force instructor pilot, with no prior medical history, was found unresponsive at his home after awakening with symptoms of altered mental status when the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) was called. The patient was found to be hypoglycemic with a glucose of 37 mg/dL. The patient recovered after administration of a dextrose bolus. Further investigation revealed that over the last several years, the patient exhibited symptoms of lightheadedness and tremors if fasted greater than 3 hours. Further clinical workup ...

Authors: Zhu H, Xi Y, Bao H, Xu X, Niu L, Tao Y, Cao N, Wang W, Zhang X Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a life-threatening chronic illness. CVD risk may be influenced by environment and lifestyle. People in northern China usually consume high-fat, high-salt diets and alcohol and live in a cold climate over long periods. However, there are limited studies on CVD risk among people in northern China. In the present study, we sought to estimate the CVD risk profile among residents of northern China. Using the Programme of Screening and Intervention Subjects with High Risk Cardiovascular Diseases, we collected ...

Conclusions: Advanced NSCLC patients classified VSGood have significantly longer OS than those classified VSPoor. The summary effect size for OS HRs around 0.4-0.5 indicates that the expected median survival of those with a VSGood classification is approximately 2-2.5 times as long as those with VSPoor. The robust prognostic performance of the VeriStrat test across various lines of therapy and treatment regimens has clinical implications for treatment shared decision-making and potential for novel treatment strategies.

Authors: Kiarudi MY, Sabermoghadam A, Sardabi M, Jafarzadeh SV, Razavi ME Abstract Reports of isolated anomalies of the medial rectus (MR) muscle in literature are sparse. It has been identified as a subtype of congenital cranial dysinnervation disorder that affects the normal development of brainstem motor neurons. Herein, we report a 37-year-old male presented with large-angle exotropia since the birth of right eye with palpebral fissure widening. On examination of ocular movements, there was -6 limitation of adduction. There was no limitation in other ocular movements. In the preoperative CT scan, all extraocula...
