Microsurgical efficacy in 326 children with tethered cord syndrome: a retrospective analysis.

Neural Regen Res 2019 Jan;14(1):149-155

Department of Neurosurgery, PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Tethered cord syndrome is a progressive disease with a typically insidious onset in infants and children, and which can lead to persistent progress of neurological deficits and a high rate of disability without timely intervention. The purpose of this study was to investigate the curative effect of microsurgery in children with different types of tethered cord syndrome. In this study, we analyzed 326 patients with tethered cord syndrome, aged from 2 months to 14 years old, who were followed for 3-36 months after microscopic surgery. Read More

MDM2 RNA In Situ Hybridization for the Diagnosis of Atypical Lipomatous Tumor: A Study Evaluating DNA, RNA, and Protein Expression.

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Departments of Pathology.

The distinction of atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL) from its benign counterpart, lipoma, may represent a challenge. MDM2 DNA amplification is used as the gold standard as MDM2 immunohistochemistry lacks specificity and sensitivity. Herein, we investigate the diagnostic utility of MDM2 RNA in situ hybridization (RNA-ISH) and compare the test with MDM2 immunohistochemistry and MDM2 DNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in benign and malignant lipomatous neoplasms.

Spindle cell lipoma (SCL) is a benign neoplasm of mature adipose tissue mostly located in the neck, back, and shoulder region. It is composed of a variable admixture of adipocytes, benign spindle cells, and collagen fibres. While the histopathologic features of SCL are quite characteristic and well described, a cytologic diagnosis of SCL might be challenging. Read More

Intramedullary Spinal Cord Lipoma Mimicking a Late Subacute Hematoma.

Asian J Neurosurg 2018 Oct-Dec;13(4):1282-1284

Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Center Zagreb, University of Zagreb, School of Medicine, Zagreb, Croatia.

Successful treatment of chronic knee pain following localization by a sigma-1 receptor radioligand and PET/MRI: a case report.

J Pain Res 2018 12;11:2353-2357. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA,

Background: The ability to accurately diagnose and objectively localize pain generators in chronic pain sufferers remains a major clinical challenge since assessment relies on subjective patient complaints and relatively non-specific diagnostic tools. Developments in clinical molecular imaging, including advances in imaging technology and radiotracer design, have afforded the opportunity to identify tissues involved in pain generation based on their pro-nociceptive condition. The sigma-1 receptor (S1R) is a pro-nociceptive receptor upregulated in painful, inflamed tissues, and it can be imaged using the highly specific radioligand F-FTC-146 with PET. Read More
