A large-area organic transistor with 3D-printed sensing gate for noninvasive single-molecule detection of pancreatic mucinous cyst markers.

Anal Bioanal Chem 2022 Apr 11. Epub 2022 Apr 11.

CSGI (Centre for Colloid and Surface Science), Via E. Orabona 4, 70125, Bari, Italy.

Early diagnosis in a premalignant (or pre-invasive) state represents the only chance for cure in neoplastic diseases such as pancreatic-biliary cancer, which are otherwise detected at later stages and can only be treated using palliative approaches, with no hope for a cure. Screening methods for the purpose of secondary prevention are not yet available for these cancers. Current diagnostic methods mostly rely on imaging techniques and conventional cytopathology, but they do not display adequate sensitivity to allow valid early diagnosis. Read More

[The Baker's cyst - a blunt sword of Damokles in radiosynoviorthesis (RSO)?]

Nuklearmedizin 2022 Feb 29;61(1):42-48. Epub 2021 Oct 29.

Standort Gießen, Überörtliche Berufsausübungsgemeinschaft für Nuklearmedizin, Hanau - Frankfurt - Offenbach - Gießen, Giessen, Germany.

The existence of a popliteal Baker's cyst was regarded as a contraindication for radiosynoviorthesis of the knee joint since decades. A so-called "ventile mechanism" was discussed leading to a significant concentration of the intraarticularly applied, high energy beta emitting radiopharmaceutical yttrium-90-colloid in the cyst. This cyst arises from a bursa beneath the tendon of the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle, normally communicating with the knee joint space. Read More

Neurological Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, USA.

Metastatic lesions to the choroid plexus, although far less common than colloid cysts, can present very similarly both symptomatically and radiographically. Choroid plexus metastases are most common in the lateral ventricles, however, when they occur in the third and fourth ventricles they may cause obstructive hydrocephalus typical of a colloid cyst lesion. Renal cell carcinoma is the most common primary cancer, but many rare primaries have been reported. Read More
