CONCLUSIONS: VIS was feasible in clinical routine. Compared to the other evaluated blocks, the VIS for the infragluteal access to the sciatic nerve was rated worst. VIS is found to be worse in obese patients. Further research is needed to evaluate VIS and its suitability for specific questions as for instance anesthetists' learning curves, comparison of different patient populations, ultrasound devices or different nerve blocks.

CONCLUSIONS: EUS-GE is a safe and effective procedure for GOO. The retrieval anchor can make EUS-GE easier to perform successfully. PMID: 32643452 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Hirose S, Hasegawa N, Kawai H, Yamaura M, Mizui T, Komatsu Y, Nagase M, Sato M, Hattori J, Endo M, Yamamoto Y, Ishige K, Fukuda K, Hyodo I, Mizokami Y Abstract A 70-year-old woman was referred to our department due to a solitary mediastinal tumor which gradually grew near the site of anastomosis for 8 years after radical surgery of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. It was difficult to distinguish the lymph node recurrence of esophageal cancer from another tumor of unknown primary origin. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration was performed, and the tumor was diagnosed to be neuroendocrine ca...
Conclusion MRgFUS unilateral Vim thalamotomy could be adopted as one of the therapeutic options for intractable ET. Further improvement of tremor in the targeted hand or contralateral Vim thalamotomy may be necessary to improve the quality of life. PMID: 32641664 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this article is to review the role of intracoronary imaging in the management of patients with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD). In this review article, we discuss the types of intracoronary imaging including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) and their relative strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, we discuss in detail the findings on IVUS and OCT and how these modalities can be used for optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in SCAD cases.Recent FindingsWhile coronary angiography is the first-line investigation for diagnosis of SCAD, it...
ConclusionsFetal perfusion, welfare, and viability are related to UC function as the conveyor of all fetal volemia. Excessive UC length affects cardiac dynamics and increases peripheral vascular resistance. Further studies could validate routine use of the differential proximal and distal measurements proposed in this article, and their implications in in utero fetal heart function. We also hope that early diagnosis or UC alterations could alert neonatologists and obstetricians to clinical conditions of the fetus.
AbstractHigh-resolution ultrasound is the most common imaging technique used to supplement the physical examination of scrotum and penis with great accuracy in assisting the diagnosis of the various pathologies of male genital system, with the highest diagnostic potential in emergency conditions. Technical advancements in real-time high-resolution, color flow Doppler sonography and contrast enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) have led to an increase in the clinical applications of scrotal and penile sonography. In this pictorial review we focus on common and uncommon male genitalia emergency with special emphasis on the role o...
AbstractIntroduction and hypothesisCervical elongation (CE) has not been clearly defined and has similar symptoms to pelvic organ prolapse. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of preoperative POP-Q examinations, ultrasonographic measurements, and direct cervical length measurement with a Foley catheter in predicting CE on postoperative hysterectomy specimens.MethodsFifty-six patients who underwent vaginal hysterectomy for apical pelvic organ prolapse were included. The patients were divided into two groups based on the hysterectomy specimens ’ corpus/cervix ratio (CCR) as follows: the non-CE group, CCR> 1; the CE group, CCR
