Spontaneous Hyaloidal Contraction and Complex Retinal Detachment in a Patient With Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2019 Apr;50(4):238-241

The authors present an interventional case report of a patient with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome who developed simultaneous exudative and combined tractional, rhegmatogenous, and exudative retinal detachment (RD) in the right and left eyes, respectively, following uneventful cryotherapy application of retinal capillary hemangioblastoma (RCH). After pars plana vitrectomy combined with encircling scleral buckling with radial element placement and silicone oil injection, complete retinal reattachment was achieved. The exudative RD of the fellow eye was managed initially with intense topical corticosteroid treatment and subsequent placement of a radial scleral buckle due to the presence of clinically apparent traction.

Robot-assisted Radical Prostatectomy After Focal Therapy: Oncological, Functional Outcomes and Predictors of Recurrence.

Eur Urol 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Urology Centre, Guy's and St. Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. Electronic address:

There are few data on the outcomes and toxicity of radical prostatectomy (RP) among men experiencing local recurrence of prostate cancer (PC) following focal therapy (FT). To characterise perioperative, oncological, and functional outcomes after salvage robot-assisted RP (S-RALP) and determine the risk factors for S-RALP failure, we conducted a multicentre cohort study of 82 patients undergoing S-RALP after FT. All had histological confirmation of PC recurrence, with metastatic disease excluded using pelvic magnetic resonance imaging, a bone scan, and/or positron emission tomography/computed tomography.

Partial-body cryostimulation after training improves sleep quality in professional soccer players.

BMC Res Notes 2019 Mar 15;12(1):141. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Laboratoire Mobilité Vieillissement Exercice (MOVE)-EA6314, Faculty of Sport Sciences, University of Poitiers, 8 allée Jean Monnet, 86000, Poitiers, France.

Objective: The aim of the present investigation was to determine whether using cryostimulation (partial-body cryostimulation) impacts sleep quality in professional soccer players. Different exposure durations at - 180 °C were tested randomly after standardized training sessions in nine professional soccer players (no cryostimulation, 180-s exposure, two 90-s exposures separated by a 5-min rest at room temperature, and 90-s exposure), and the effects on sleep quality using 3-dimensional accelerometers worn during sleep were assessed.

Results: The number of movements during the night after partial-body cryostimulation was significantly reduced only in the 180-s exposure condition (p < 0. Read More

Study protocol for a multicenter randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of end-ischemic dual hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion with static cold storage in preventing non-anastomotic biliary strictures after transplantation of liver grafts donated after circulatory death: DHOPE-DCD trial.

BMC Gastroenterol 2019 Mar 12;19(1):40. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Section Hepatobiliary Surgery and Liver Transplantation, Department of Surgery, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Background: The major concern in liver transplantation of grafts from donation after circulatory death (DCD) donors remains the high incidence of non-anastomotic biliary strictures (NAS). Machine perfusion has been proposed as an alternative strategy for organ preservation which reduces ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI). Experimental studies have shown that dual hypothermic oxygenated machine perfusion (DHOPE) is associated with less IRI, improved hepatocellular function, and better preserved mitochondrial and endothelial function compared to conventional static cold storage (SCS).
