Front Pharmacol 2021 8;12:671589. Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Tianjin Key Laboratory of Retinal Functions and Diseases, Tianjin Branch of National Clinical Research Center for Ocular Disease, Eye Institute and School of Optometry, Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital, Tianjin, China.

Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is the third leading cause of death in cardiovascular diseases. PTE is believed to be caused by thrombi detached from deep veins of lower extremities. The thrombi travel with systemic circulation to the lung and block pulmonary arteries, leading to sudden disruption of hemodynamics and blood gas exchange. Read More

Restoration of Motion Blurred Image by Modified DeblurGAN for Enhancing the Accuracies of Finger-Vein Recognition.

Sensors (Basel) 2021 Jul 6;21(14). Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Division of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Dongguk University, 30 Pildong-ro 1-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul 04620, Korea.

Among many available biometrics identification methods, finger-vein recognition has an advantage that is difficult to counterfeit, as finger veins are located under the skin, and high user convenience as a non-invasive image capturing device is used for recognition. However, blurring can occur when acquiring finger-vein images, and such blur can be mainly categorized into three types. First, skin scattering blur due to light scattering in the skin layer; second, optical blur occurs due to lens focus mismatching; and third, motion blur exists due to finger movements. Read More

How I Do It: Point-of-Care Ultrasound for Bedside Diagnosis of Lower Extremity Deep Venous Thrombosis.

Chest 2021 Jul 13. Epub 2021 Jul 13.

Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

The point-of-care ultrasound deep venous thrombosis exam (POCUS DVT exam) can facilitate rapid bedside diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity DVT. Awaiting radiology-performed Doppler ultrasonography and interpretation by radiologists can lead to delays in lifesaving anticoagulation, and the POCUS DVT exam can provide timely diagnostic information in the patient with lower extremity symptoms. This article outlines accepted techniques for the POCUS DVT exam, discusses the historical context from which the current recommendations have evolved, and provides illustrations alongside ultrasound images of relevant venous anatomy to orient the clinician.

An Atypical Presentation of Hirayama Disease with Lower Limb Myelopathic Findings Only: A Case Report.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2021 Jul 14. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, U.S.A.

Abstract: Hirayama disease is a rare neuromuscular disease which classically presents as lower motor neuron weakness and atrophy in the upper extremities and specifically the C7-T1 myotomes. Proposed pathogenesis relates to microcirculatory dysfunction in the territory of the anterior spinal artery caused by epidural venous plexus engorgement with forward displacement of the posterior dura and spinal cord during neck flexion, leading to chronic ischemic changes in the lower cervical anterior horn cells. Diagnosis hinges upon clinical and radiographic findings and treatment is generally conservative given the self-limited nature of the disease. Read More
