ERK Activity Imaging During Migration of Living Cells In Vitro and In Vivo.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Feb 5;20(3). Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Oncologic Pathology, School of Medicine, Kanazawa Medical University, Ishikawa 920-0293, Japan.

Extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) is a major downstream factor of the EGFR-RAS-RAF signalling pathway, and thus the role of ERK in cell growth has been widely examined. The development of biosensors based on fluorescent proteins has enabled us to measure ERK activities in living cells, both after growth factor stimulation and in its absence. Long-term imaging unexpectedly revealed the oscillative activation of ERK in an epithelial sheet or a cyst in vitro. Read More

Management of blunt intraperitoneal bladder rupture: Case report and literature review.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Feb 1;55:160-163. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Surgery, Kendall Regional Medical Center, Miami, FL, United States; University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, United States.

Introduction: Urinary bladder ruptures are an uncommon injury, occurring in less than 1% of all blunt abdominal trauma. Extraperitoneal bladder ruptures are generally associated with pelvic fractures and usually managed nonoperatively. Conversely, intraperitoneal injuries are often caused by large compressive and shear forces produced during seatbelt injuries and almost invariably require surgical intervention. Read More

Cystoscopy at the time of benign hysterectomy: A decision analysis.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Trinity Health Of New England, Hartford, CT.

Background: Gynecologists debate the optimal use for intraoperative cystoscopy at the time of benign hysterectomy. Although adding cystoscopy leads to additional up-front cost, it may also enable intraoperative detection of a urinary tract injury that may otherwise go unnoticed. Prompt injury detection and intraoperative repair decreases morbidity and is less costly than postoperative diagnosis and treatment. Read More

The Ilioinguinal Approach: State of the Art.

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2018 Jun 27;8(2):e19. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Academic Department of Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Leeds, Leeds General Infirmary, Leeds, United Kingdom.

Introduction: The ilioinguinal approach is the standard approach for the open reduction and internal fixation of the majority of displaced, anteriorly based acetabular fractures as it offers wide access to the acetabulum, is extensile, and has been associated with enhanced recovery.

Indications & Contraindications:

Step 1 Preoperative Planning: Review the patient's general condition and imaging studies and plan the sequence of reduction and fixation.

Step 2 Preparation And Patient Positioning: Position the patient supine on the fracture table, induce anesthesia, prepare the surgical field, administer intravenous antibiotics, and apply traction. Read More

Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine, King's College Hospital, London, UK.

Objective: To estimate the diagnostic accuracy of a two-stage strategy for early prediction of morbidly adherent placenta (MAP). In the first stage, at 11-13 weeks' gestation, women with low-lying placenta and history of uterine surgery are classified as being at high risk for MAP and, in the second stage, at 12-16 weeks, these high-risk pregnancies are assessed at a specialist MAP clinic.

Methods: This was a prospective study in women having an ultrasound scan at 11-13 weeks' gestation as a part of routine pregnancy care. Read More

Indicated to manage a variety of disorders affecting the female genital tract, hysterectomy represents the second most common gynaecological operation after caesarean section. Performed via an open, laparoscopic or vaginal approach, hysterectomy is associated with non-negligible morbidity and occasional mortality. Iatrogenic complications represent a growing concern for gynaecologists and may result in prolonged hospitalisation, need for interventional procedures or repeated surgery, renal impairment and malpractice claims.

Background: To analyze clinical outcome of CyberKnife (CK) tumor-tracking stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for prostate cancer (Pca) according to the magnitude of intra-fractional prostate motion.

Methods: Medical records and daily treatment logs for 71 patients who received CK tumor-tracking SBRT were retrospectively analyzed. Statistical relationships between prostate motion and various outcome results, including local recurrence (LR), biochemical failure (BF), and treatment-related toxicity, were investigated in order to evaluate motion-dependent efficacy of tumor-tracking SBRT for Pca.

Purpose: To review currently available guidelines and recommendations regarding urological follow-up of patients after spinal cord injury (SCI) and present an evidence-based summary to support clinicians in their clinical practice.

Methods: Maximum data were collected according to different methods, including searches with multiple and specific keywords, reference checks, gray literature searches (congress reports, working papers, statement documents), and browsing-related Web site access. Obtained data were analyzed with the modified version of the Oxford grading system for recommendations using levels of evidence (LE) and grades of recommendation (GR). Read More

Idiosyncratic reaction after injection of polyacrylate - polyalcohol copolymer.

Int Braz J Urol 2018 Jul-Aug;44(4):831-834

Departamento de Urologia, Faculdade de Medicina do ABC (FMABC), Santo André, SP, Brasil.

Context: Polyacrylate-polyalcohol copolymer is a synthetic product, non-biodegradable, with low rate of therapeutic failure and lower incidence of reactions at the site of injection, when compared to biodegradable agents. We report an unprecedent, exuberant and persistent inflammatory reaction following injection of that substance.

Patient: A 17 years-old patient with vesico-ureteral reflux and complete pyelocaliceal right duplication was submitted to treatment with polyacrylate-polyalcohol copolymer (STING technique). Read More

Postoperative Development of Abdominal Compartment Syndrome among Patients Undergoing Endovascular Aortic Repair for Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms.

Ann Vasc Surg 2018 May 22;49:289-294. Epub 2018 Mar 22.

USC Comprehensive Aortic Center, CardioVascular Thoracic Institute, Keck Medical Center of USC, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA. Electronic address:

Background: Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) has a reported incidence of 9%-14% among trauma patients. However, in patients with similar hemodynamic changes, the incidence of ACS remains unclear. Our aim was to determine the incidence of ACS among patients undergoing endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAAs) and to identify associated risk factors.
