FDG-PET/CT as the superior imaging modality for inflammatory bowel disease

Conclusions: We argue global FDG-PET/CT will be the gold standard moving forward for the diagnosis and clinical management of IBD. This molecular imaging technique has demonstrated superiority over purely structural imaging modalities. Therefore, future studies should further explore the role of FDG-PET/CT in IBD, as well as compare results to other imaging modalities.

AbstractDante places the sinners who promoted scandals, schism, and discord in the ninth Ditch of the Inferno. Among those is also the Prophet Muhammad. Describing the Prophet ’s punishment, Dante resorts to technical terms and vulgar expressions. This poetic representation highlights Dante’s medical and anatomical knowledge and reflects 14th c. Christian religious beliefs. At that time, autopsies were performed only on prisoners, prostitutes and people without identi ty. By comparing the Prophet to an autopsied corpse, Dante associates Muhammad with those bearing the badge of shame. Moreover, this description ...

Conclusion: In this cohort of patients with esophageal cancer admitted to intensive care units with acute illness, the in-hospital mortality rate was very high. The requirement for invasive mechanical ventilation and metastatic disease were independent prognostic factors and should be considered in discussions about the short-term outcomes of these patients.

Loss of chromosome Y (LOY) is a mosaic aneuploidy that can be detected mainly in blood samples of male individuals. Usually, LOY occurrence increases with chronological age in healthy men. Moreover, recently LOY has been reported in association with several diseases, such as cancer, where its frequency is even higher. The Y chromosome is one of the shortest chromosomes of the human karyotype, and it is crucial for correct male development. This chromosome has functions beyond the male reproductive system, and loss of its genes or even LOY can have consequences for the male body that are yet to be elucidated. Analyses of th...

AbstractThe use of mesenchymal stem cells has resulted in a breakthrough for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas in Crohn ’s disease. This novel treatment is associated with a minimally invasive surgical technique that can be well defined. However, our previous experience has taught us that neglecting any of the critical steps in the operation can result in frequent treatment failure. We have put together a comprehen sive guide, a stepwise algorithm, for our minimally invasive approach to identify common pitfalls and reduce treatment failures. Using data we have collected over the past 15 years from drug ...
