(1/150) Subjective assessment of adnexal masses with the use of ultrasonography: an analysis of interobserver variability and experience.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the subjective assessment of ultrasonographic images for discriminating between malignant and benign adnexal masses. STUDY DESIGN: The study was prospective. Initially, one ultrasonographer preoperatively assessed 300 consecutive patients with adnexal masses. Subsequently, the recorded transparent photographic prints were independently assessed by five investigators, with different qualifications and level of experience, who were also given a brief clinical history of the patients (i.e. the age, menstrual status, family history of ovarian cancer, previous pelvic surgery and the presenting symptoms). The diagnostic performance of the observers was compared with the histopathology classification of malignant or benign tumors. The end-points were accuracy, interobserver agreement and the possible effect of experience. RESULTS: The first ultrasonographer and the most experienced investigator both obtained an accuracy of 92%. There was very good agreement between these two investigators in the classification of the adnexal masses (Cohen's kappa 0.85). The less experienced observers obtained a significantly lower accuracy, which varied between 82% and 87%. Their interobserver agreement was moderate to good (Cohen's kappa 0.52 to 0.76). CONCLUSION: Experienced ultrasonographers using some clinical information and their subjective assessment of ultrasonographic images can differentiate malignant from benign masses in most cases. The accuracy and the level of interobserver agreement are both correlated with experience. About 10% of masses were extremely difficult to classify (only < 50% of assessors were correct).  (+info)

(2/150) Artificial neural network models for the preoperative discrimination between malignant and benign adnexal masses.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to generate and evaluate artificial neural network (ANN) models from simple clinical and ultrasound-derived criteria to predict whether or not an adnexal mass will have histological evidence of malignancy. DESIGN: The data were collected prospectively from 173 consecutive patients who were scheduled to undergo surgical investigations at the University Hospitals, Leuven, between August 1994 and August 1996. The outcome measure was the histological classification of excised tissues as malignant (including borderline) or benign. METHODS: Age, menopausal status and serum CA 125 levels and sonographic features of the adnexal mass were encoded as variables. The ANNs were trained on a randomly selected set of 116 patient records and tested on the remainder (n = 57). The performance of each model was evaluated using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves and compared with corresponding data from an established risk of malignancy index (RMI) and a logistic regression model. RESULTS: There were 124 benign masses, five of borderline malignancy and 44 invasive cancers (of which 29% were metastatic); 37% of patients with a malignant or borderline tumor had stage I disease. The best ANN gave an area under the ROC curve of 0.979 for the whole dataset, a sensitivity of 95.9% and specificity of 93.5%. The corresponding values for the RMI were 0.882, 67.3% and 91.1%, and for the logistic regression model 0.956, 95.9% and 85.5%, respectively. CONCLUSION: An ANN can be trained to provide clinically accurate information, on whether or not an adnexal mass is malignant, from the patient's menopausal status, serum CA 125 levels, and some simple ultrasonographic criteria.  (+info)

(3/150) Successful laparoscopic management of adnexal torsion during week 25 of a twin pregnancy.

Adnexal torsion is a rare occurrence during pregnancy. Here we present a case of adnexal torsion during the 25th week of pregnancy, which was managed laparoscopically. The woman had achieved a successful twin pregnancy after in-vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection. She was admitted to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain. Abdominal ultrasound with colour Doppler mapping of the intra-ovarian blood flow showed adnexal torsion. Laparoscopic management was successfully carried out.  (+info)

(4/150) Prospective cross-validation of Doppler ultrasound examination and gray-scale ultrasound imaging for discrimination of benign and malignant pelvic masses.

OBJECTIVE: To cross-validate, prospectively, the diagnostic performance of established ultrasound methods for discrimination of benign and malignant pelvic masses. METHODS: A total of 173 consecutive women with a pelvic mass judged clinically to be of adnexal origin underwent preoperative ultrasound examination including color and spectral Doppler techniques. A total of 149 tumors were benign, and 24 were malignant. The sensitivity and false-positive rate with regard to malignancy were calculated for the following methods, using cut-off values recommended in previous publications: Lerner score; ultrasound morphology, i.e. tumors without solid components being classified as benign and tumors with solid components as malignant; tumor color score; pulsatility index; resistance index; time-averaged maximum velocity; peak systolic velocity; the combined use of ultrasound morphology and tumor color score and the combined use of ultrasound morphology and peak systolic velocity. Sensitivity and false-positive rate were also calculated for subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image and for subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image supplemented with subjective evaluation of color Doppler ultrasound examination. The confidence with which the diagnosis was made, based on subjective evaluation, was rated on a visual analog scale. RESULTS: Subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image was by far the best method for distinguishing benign from malignant tumors (sensitivity 88%, false-positive rate 4%), followed in descending order by subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image supplemented with color Doppler examination, the Lerner score and the time-averaged maximum velocity. Adding Doppler examination to subjective evaluation of the gray-scale image did not increase the number of correct diagnoses, but it increased the confidence with which a correct diagnosis was made in 14% of tumors. In 11 tumors (6% of the series as a whole), the addition of Doppler examination changed the diagnosis based on subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image from an incorrect (n = 1) or uncertain (n = 10) diagnosis to a correct and confident diagnosis. CONCLUSION: In experienced hands, subjective evaluation of the gray-scale ultrasound image is the best ultrasound method for discriminating between benign and malignant adnexal masses. The main advantage of adding Doppler examination to subjective evaluation of the gray-scale image is an increase in the confidence with which a correct diagnosis is made.  (+info)

(5/150) Prospective evaluation of a logistic model based on sonographic morphologic and color Doppler findings developed to predict adnexal malignancy.

To assess prospectively a logistic model based on sonographic morphologic and color Doppler findings, which had been developed to predict adnexal malignancy, 167 consecutive and unselected patients (mean age, 45.7 yr; range, 17 to 81 yr; 113 [67.7%] premenopausal and 54 [32.3%] postmenopausal) diagnosed as having an adnexal mass and scheduled for surgery were prospectively included in this study. All patients were evaluated by transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography. The probability of adnexal malignancy was estimated prior to surgery, applying a logistic model developed previously. A probability of malignancy greater than 75% was considered to assess model performance. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and accuracy were calculated for the model. In all cases definitive histopathologic diagnosis was obtained. One hundred and twenty-five (74.9%) benign and 42 (25.1%) malignant tumors were found. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of the model were 85.7% (95% confidence intervals, 71.4% to 94.6%), 100% (95% confidence intervals, 97.1% to 100%), 100% (95% confidence intervals, 90.3% to 100%), and 95.4% (95% confidence intervals, 90.3% to 98.3%), respectively. Overall accuracy was 96.4% (95% confidence intervals, 91.3% to 98.7%). Our results confirm the validity of the proposed logistic model in predicting adnexal malignancy.  (+info)

(6/150) Comparison of Lerner score, Doppler ultrasound examination, and their combination for discrimination between benign and malignant adnexal masses.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the combined use of Lerner's morphologic score and color Doppler ultrasound examination results in better discrimination of benign and malignant adnexal masses than the use of Lerner's score alone or Doppler variables alone. DESIGN: One hundred and seventy-three consecutive women with a pelvic mass judged clinically to be of adnexal origin underwent preoperative ultrasound examination including color and spectral Doppler techniques. One hundred and forty-nine tumors were benign and 24 malignant. The sensitivity and false-positive rate with regard to malignancy were calculated for Lerner's score, six Doppler variables and combinations of Lerner's score and Doppler variables. Previously defined gray scale and Doppler criteria of malignancy were used and tested prospectively. The best method was defined as that detecting most malignancies with the lowest false-positive rate. RESULTS: Lerner's score had a sensitivity of 92% and a false-positive rate of 36%. The best Doppler variable--time-averaged maximum velocity--had similar diagnostic properties with a sensitivity of 100% and a false-positive rate of 41%. Combining Lerner's score with Doppler measurement of time-averaged maximum velocity--i.e. requiring both Lerner's score and time-averaged maximum velocity to indicate malignancy for a malignant diagnosis to be made--had a sensitivity of 92% and a false-positive rate of 19%. CONCLUSIONS: The combined use of Lerner's score and measurement of time-averaged maximum velocity is a better method for discrimination of benign and malignant adnexal masses than the use of Lerner's score alone or Doppler ultrasound examination alone. The clinical value of the combined method needs to be cross-validated prospectively in a new series of tumors.  (+info)

(7/150) Transvaginal ultrasonography associated with colour Doppler energy in the diagnosis of hydrosalpinx.

The aims of this prospective study were to investigate the accuracy of B-mode transvaginal ultrasonography alone, using the typical finding of the presence of an elongated shaped mass with incomplete septa, in the screening of hydrosalpinx in women undergoing surgery for gynaecological diseases, and to determine the predictive value of this method combined with colour Doppler energy (CDE) imaging evaluation and CA125 concentrations in differentiating hydrosalpinx from other adnexal masses. In the first part of the study, 378 consecutive pre-menopausal non-pregnant women were submitted to transvaginal ultrasonography alone before surgery. In the second part of the study, 256 adnexal masses underwent transvaginal ultrasonography combined with CDE imaging evaluation associated with spectral Doppler analysis and plasma concentrations of CA125. Sensitivity and specificity for the ultrasonographic screening were 84.6 and 99.7% respectively, calculated for each adnexum (n = 756) and 93.3 and 99.6% respectively, calculated for each mass, for differentiating hydrosalpinx from other adnexal masses. The CDE imaging and the evaluation of CA125 plasma concentrations do not seem to increase the accuracy of B-mode transvaginal ultrasonography. Inter- and intra-observer agreement, expressed in terms of k-values, was high (0.87 and 0.93 respectively). In conclusion, transvaginal ultrasonography alone is a useful method of detection of hydrosalpinx.  (+info)

(8/150) Contrast-enhanced sonography in the examination of benign and malignant adnexal masses.

Our objective was to characterize the properties of an intravascular ultrasonographic contrast agent in examination of adnexal masses and to compare contrast agent properties between benign and malignant adnexal tumors. Fifty-eight consecutively examined women with suspected ovarian tumors were examined preoperatively by power Doppler ultrasonography, first without and then with contrast agent enhancement (Levovist). Fourteen women had ovarian cancer, 3 had borderline ovarian tumors, 18 had benign ovarian neoplasms, and 23 had functional adnexal cystic masses or endometriomas. The effect of the contrast agent was evaluated visually and by using computerized power Doppler signal intensity measurements. In visual evaluation, the brightness of the power Doppler signal and the amount of recognizable vascular areas increased in each tumor after contrast agent administration. The number of vessels in power Doppler ultrasonograms, both before and after contrast agent enhancement, was significantly higher in malignant than in benign adnexal masses, as also was the increase in the number of recognizable vessels after contrast agent administration. Contrast agent uptake time was significantly shorter in malignant than in benign tumors. No significant differences were found in the power Doppler signal intensities or their changes between benign and malignant tumors. In conclusion, use of sonographic contrast agent facilitates imaging of tumor vessels. For differentiation of benign and malignant tumors, the kinetic properties of the contrast agent, such as uptake and washout times, may have more potential than the use of the contrast agent in anatomic imaging of the tumor vessels.  (+info)

Many women have what appear to be benign adnexal masses. Many times, removal of the masses with surgery is not necessary. Often surgery is performed unnecessarily, for fear that these masses could be cancer. There is not much information available for doctors to know how and when to follow these masses, or which ones will become cancer.. This study will combine information from centers all around the world regarding the behavior of all types of benign adnexal masses.

Assessment of adnexal masses using ultrasound: a practical review Noam Smorgick, Ron Maymon Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel Abstract: Pelvic ultrasound is commonly used as part of the routine gynecologic exams, resulting in diagnosis of adnexal masses, the majority of which are functional or benign. However, due to the possible complications involving benign adnexal cysts (ie, adnexal torsion, pelvic pain) and the utmost importance of early diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer, the correct ultrasound diagnosis of adnexal masses is essential in clinical practice. This review will describe the typical ultrasound appearance of the common physiologic, benign, and malignant adnexal masses with the aim of aiding the clinician to reach the correct diagnosis. Keywords: adnexal cyst, Doppler, ovarian cancer
OBJECTIVE: The Risk of Malignancy Index (RMI) is a simple scoring system to standardize and improve the preoperative evaluation of adnexal masses. Since 1990, three versions of the RMI have been validated in different clinical studies. Recently, a fourth version of the RMI (RMI-4) was introduced that includes tumor size as an additional parameter. The aim of this study was to validate the ability of RMI-4 to discriminate between non-invasive lesions and invasive malignant adnexal masses, and to compare its performance with RMI-3. STUDY DESIGN: Women scheduled for surgery for an adnexal mass between 2005 and 2009 in 11 hospitals were included. Ultrasonographic characteristics, menopausal status and serum CA 125 level were registered preoperatively, and combined into the RMI. The performances of RMI-3 and RMI-4 were assessed and statistically tested for differences. RESULTS: A total of 643 patients were included: 469 benign, 73 borderline and 101 malignant tumors. The RMI-3 had a sensitivity of ...
A quality improvement initiative reduced unnecessary imaging referrals for adnexal lesions by a team of researchers at the Virginia Mason Medical Center, according to a study published online Oct. 18 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
Purpose: To estimate inter-observer agreement with regard to describing adnexal masses using the International Ovarian Tumor Analysis (IOTA) terminology and the risk of malignancy calculated using IOTA logistic regression models LR1 and LR2, and to elucidate what explained the largest inter-observer differences in calculated risk of malignancy. Experimental Design: 117 women with adnexal masses were examined with transvaginal gray scale and power Doppler ultrasound by two independent experienced sonologists who described the masses using IOTA terminology. The risk of malignancy was calculated using LR1 and LR2. A predetermined risk of malignancy cutoff of 10% indicated malignancy. Results: There were 94 benign, four borderline and 19 invasively malignant tumors. There was substantial variability between the two sonologists in measurement results and some variability in assessment of categorical variables (agreement 40-98%, Kappa 0.30-0.91). Inter-observer agreement when classifying tumors as ...
BACKGROUND: There is no universal screening method for discrimination between benign and malignant adnexal masses yet. Various authors have tried tumor markers, imaging studies, cytology but no one yet is a definite method for screening of cancer ovary, for which a combined diagnostic modality has come to practice in form of RMI. With this background we conducted our study "Evaluation of risk malignancy index and its diagnostic value in patients with adnexal masses". METHODS: The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of risk of malignancy index (RMI-3) in preoperative discrimination between benign and malignant masses and also to reveal the most suitable cut off value ...

Background and aim Type І diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a T-cell-mediated, chronic disease characterized by a deficiency or absence of insulin, when the bodys own immune system attacks the β cells in the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas. The increased incidence of T1DM in children under the age of 5 years and the aggressive process of β-cell destruction in this age group indicate the need to assess the immune system. CD4+CD25+high regulatory T cells (Tregs) appear to be critical in regulating immune responses to self-antigens. The aim of this study is to evaluate CD4+CD25+ Tregs frequency in the peripheral blood of children diagnosed with T1DM under the age of 5 in comparison with those diagnosed at a later age and healthy controls. Patients and methods The present study was carried out on 80 children who were classified into three groups: group I included 20 children with newly diagnosed T1DM under the age of 5; group II included 20 children with newly diagnosed T1DM older than 5 years of ...

Fragmented sleep (SF) is a highly prevalent condition and a hallmark of sleep apnea, a condition that has been associated with increased cancer incidence and mortality. In this study, we examined the hypothesis that SF promotes tumor growth and progression through pro-inflammatory TLR4 signaling. In the design, we compared mice that were exposed to SF one week before engraftment of syngeneic TC1 or LL3 tumor cells and tumor analysis three weeks later. We also compared host contributions through the use of mice genetically deficient in TLR4 or its effector molecules MYD88 or TRIF. We found that SF enhanced tumor size and weight compared to control mice. Increased invasiveness was apparent in SF tumors, which penetrated the tumor capsule into surrounding tissues including adjacent muscle. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) were more numerous in SF tumors where they were distributed in a relatively closer proximity to the tumor capsule, compared to control mice. Although tumors were generally ...

Abstract: Background: This is a case report of an infertile woman who presented to us with lower abdominal pain. In abdominal, bimanual pelvic and rectal examination confirmed a tender right adnexal mass with irregular bulging of posterior cul-du-sac. Sonography showed a large multi cystic ovarian mass without blood flow, in favor of adnexal torsion. Methodology: The patient underwent emergency laparotomy and there were 2 irregular masses that loosely attached to each other. The first one was twisted and the larger second one located deeply in poster cul-du-sac with adhesion to surrounding organs. Results: The pathologic report of both cysts showed the diagnosis of hydatid cyst. There was not any other site involvement. Conclusion: Each gynecdogist should be consider the possibility of hydatid cyst in dealing with pelvic mass ...

There is a simple rule - adults are sexually mature, immatures are not.. So a micromalthid pupa may be an adult, but a winged mayfly subimago is not. A silverfish is an adult when sexually mature, but may undergo numerous additional moults as an adult. Technically, one could argue that any bug that looks like an adult but needs further maturation to reproduce is not yet an adult. So, even this simple rule is not very simple. Also, arthropods dont seem interested in making our definitions any easier. For example, some collembolans (not an insect) apparently alternate between sexually mature and inactive stages after their first adult stage.. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Fetal ultrasound screening has become routine practice in many western countries. During the last decade, such screening has led to frequent situations characterised by clinical uncertainty due to the disclosure of soft markers in the unborn child. Soft markers are minor anatomical variations indicating a somewhat increased likelihood that the fetus has a chromosomal aberration, most frequently trisomy 21 (Down syndrome). This paper presents the results of a comprehensive literature search of the National Library of Medicine with emphasis on the chronological development of scientific knowledge in relation to soft markers and the link between advancing imaging technology and clinical counselling dilemmas. An analysis of the literature makes evident that many ultrasound examiners have counselled individual pregnant women on the basis of insufficient data. Moral dilemmas have thus emerged as a direct result of advancing medical technology, and healthy fetal lives prove to

Mucinous adenocarcinoma of the fallopian tube is exceptionally rare and the detailed clinicopathologic features of these tumors have not yet been reported in English literature. Here we report a moderately differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma arising in the tubal fimbria in a 70-year-old woman. Patient had a history of cholecystectomy for gallstones and gastric banding who presented with gastrointestinal discomfort and was found to have a large adnexal mass on imaging studies. Serum CA-125 was moderately elevated. Recent mammography, upper endoscopy and colonoscopy were completely normal. She underwent surgical staging for the adnexal mass. Frozen section and final pathology diagnosis revealed moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma arising in the left fimbria. Carcinoma had spread to the ipsilateral ovary and pelvic soft tissue at the time of her presentation. Tumor was strongly immunoreactive to CK7 and CEA, and was negative for CK20, CDX-2, PAX-8, WT-1, p16, ER, and vimentin. TP53 showed wild-type

The USCF pediatric neurosurgical department this week had a publication come out electronically ahead of print regarding biopsy issues for intrinsic brainstem lesions. These doctors note that the situation with pediatric brainstem tumors is "virtually unlike any other location in the brain" because for these other areas the first step is obtaining a tissue diagnosis to devise an appropriate treatment course. The reason for the lack of biopsy has been the perception of excessive risk of pediatric brainstem biopsy. The article also notes that the current approach of investigating a wide array of chemotherapeutic options in multitudinous trials without biologic tumor analysis has not lead to any increased survival in the last two decade. The authors evaluated the feasibility and safety of pediatric brainstem biopsy at their institution ...
BACKGROUND: Diuron is widely used in agriculture but its deleterious effects on the reproductive system and mammary gland are still poorly understood. This study evaluated whether early-life-stage exposure to Diuron alters puberty onset or susceptibility to mammary carcinogenesis in female Sprague-Dawley rats. METHODS AND RESULTS: Pregnant rats received basal diet or diet containing Diuron at 500, 750, and 1,250 ppm, from gestational day 12 to the end of lactation (postnatal day 21 [PND21]). After weaning, female offspring continued receiving basal diet or diet containing Diuron until PND 51. At PND 51, female Sprague-Dawley offspring received a single dose of 50 mg/kg b.w. of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a) anthracene (DMBA) for initiation of mammary carcinogenesis. The animals were sacrificed on PND 51, 75, and 226 to 233 (week 25) for mammary gland morphology, reproductive organs and tumor analysis, respectively. There were no significant differences among groups on vaginal opening, estrous cycle, ...
In recent years we have witnessed an expanding role of laparoscopy in gynecology. Few operations, generally those involving the vulva, have not been improved vastly by the addition of endoscopic technology. The dearth of randomized controlled trials showing the benefit of such technology dissuade only the most archaic troglodytes in our specialty.The final frontier of laparoscopy has now been reached. Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic node dissection,1 aortic node dissection,2 and other radical pelvic and abdominal cancer operations3 5 are now commonly done endoscopically. Obstetrics is one of the few remaining areas in our specialty that has not fully embraced the manifest benefits of laparoscopically assisted operations, but that is beginning to change. An article on endoscopic removal of adnexal masses in pregnancy6 and a case report of an endoscopic uterine suspension during pregnancy7 have been published recently. The logical extension of the technology is into operative ...

How and why do we attempt to choose the best model if all models are wrong? The rightness of a model is a relative not absolute concept. What is the main objective of the model? For example parameter estimation, covariate evaluation, or assessment of between subject variability? The clinical relevance and applicability of the model is important in evaluating its usefulness, its fit for purpose. Pharmacometrics by definition entails measurement and quantification, but to some extent subjective evaluation is also important. Before embarking on model building it is helpful to have clear objectives and a plan for evaluation. A useful model describes a particular data set well, and best predicts and explains the relationship of the variables in the system. The simplest methods of fitting mathematical models to data involve drawing a line of best fit through observed data points (e.g. eyeball method). Pharmacometric modelling involves adjusting parameter estimates to best fit the model to the ...
Since 1980, a new outlook on stress was applied in connection with the changes in psychiatric concepts and the notion that a traumatic experience may cause specific psychological symptoms varying from the content and source of other psychiatric disorders. The understanding of the trauma, defined by the objective traits of the stressor, separated it from stress as defined by the subjective individuals decision. This was against the current theory of Selye in which the stress reaction is a homogenous entity as a whole, defined by a subjective evaluation of the event, independently of the objective traits. The paper examines new directions in the studies on the meaning of trauma for the person who survived it. According to these studies, the trauma and its consequences cannot be viewed solely in a narrow pathogenic and symptomatic frame. Modern directions of studies on stress led to a model integration of physiological, behavioural and psychological reactions and the trauma itself was to be seen ...

Laparoscopic surgery is currently accepted as the standard of care for the management of adnexal pathology. The safety of laparoscopy during pregnancy has not been fully evaluated. Potential advantages of this approach for the pregnant women include less postoperative pain and more rapid recovery, which in turn may reduce the danger of thromboembolism. The concerns include potential direct trauma to the uterus or fetus, compromise of the uteroplacental perfusion due to increased intra-abdominal pressure associated with carbon dioxide insufflation, and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning as a result of exposure to smoke generated by thermal energy in the form of laser surgery or bipolar desiccation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of pregnancy in a series of 29 pregnant women undergoing laparoscopic surgery for the management of an adnexal mass in the first 4 months of gestation. Of the 29 women 1 had a first trimester abortion, and 1 delivered prematurely (32w, 2126g). Of the 24 ...
Three cases of peritoneal benign cystic mesotheliomas in women 32-34 years of age and one case of peritoneal malignant mesothelioma in a 47-year-old woman are reported. All cases presented with abdominal discomfort and/or pain and the physical and ra
Sampling techniques are combined during bronchoscopy to increase the diagnostic yield for endobronchial malignant tumours. Bronchial biopsy provides the definitive histological diagnosis in most cases, but accompanying cytological procedures such as washing, brushing, needle aspiration or imprint cytology can increase diagnostic yield. In this prospective study, a different cytological technique, that could enhance the diagnostic yield of bronchoscopy without increasing its time or cost, was tested. Flexible bronchoscopy was performed in 93 patients suspected of having pulmonary neoplasms. Bronchial biopsies were initially placed in a balanced salt solution. When bronchoscopy was finished, all visible tissue fragments were removed and placed in formalin to undergo histopathological examination and the rinse fluid was sent for cytological examination. Washing was performed routinely but no cytological brushing was employed. Eighty-two patients had final diagnoses of malignant neoplasm. In four ...

A 20 year old married female presented to us in emergency with inability to remove the vaginal mould she had inserted the previous day and incontinence of urine. This patient had presented to us 3 months earlier with complaints of cyclic pain abdomen, primary ammenorhea and pain abdomen. She was married for last two years and had no coital difficulty. At that time on examination under anesthesia, the urethral opening was found to be patulous and admitted one finger. The hymen and urogenital sinus were not developed. Perineal length was normal. On per-rectal examination a bulge in the upper part of vagina was felt about 3 cm from anal opening. Ultrasound showed fluid with internal echoes in the uterus, no adnexal mass and other abdominal organ appeared be normal. An excretory urography revealed good excretory function in both kidneys except for mild hydrohephesis in right kidney due to the enlarged uterus. MRI report suggested the possibility of atretic vagina with hematometra. Vaginal ...

Yesterday we talked about the importance of understanding and following at-home care instructions after a furbaby has undergone a procedure. Just as important, though, is making sure to follow all instructions prior to a procedure. One of the simple rules is that you should not feed your kitty or pup after 10 pm or so on the night prior to undergoing anesthesia. This is because a cat or dog should have an empty stomach when being anesthetized, in order to prevent issues such as aspiration. They can, however, still drink water. In addition to this, you should talk to your veterinarian about what medications should and should not be given prior to a procedure. In some cases, depending on the situation, your furbaby might need something such as an anti-inflammatory prior to surgery. This might be the case if a growth is being removed and inflammation needs to be at a minimum prior to surgery. In other cases, you might need to hold off on giving other medications, such as if your furbaby is on a ...

... is a rare type of cancer that usually develops in areas of the body where sweat is produced (sweat glands). The largest of these sweat-producing sites and also the most common location where microcystic adnexal carcinoma develops is the central face. The cancer forms when a change (mutation) in DNA causes certain cells to grow out of control, sometimes forming a lump or a tumor. Microcystic adnexal carcinoma may also occur in the general head and neck regions. Some of these cancerous cells can break off and spread ("metastasize") to other parts of the body and grow there.. Microcystic adnexal carcinoma most commonly occurs in adults between the ages of 40 and 60, though it can appear in all age groups. Factors that may increase the risk of developing microcystic adnexal carcinoma include excess exposure to sunlight, sunburn, and a family history of skin cancer. The most common symptoms of microcystic adnexal carcinoma include redness, inflammation, and irritation of ...

Sleep fragmentation (SF) is a highly prevalent condition and a hallmark of sleep apnea, a condition that has been associated with increased cancer incidence and mortality. In this study, we examined the hypothesis that sleep fragmentation promotes tumor growth and progression through proinflammatory TLR4 signaling. In the design, we compared mice that were exposed to sleep fragmentation one week before engraftment of syngeneic TC1 or LL3 tumor cells and tumor analysis four weeks later. We also compared host contributions through the use of mice genetically deficient in TLR4 or its effector molecules MYD88 or TRIF. We found that sleep fragmentation enhanced tumor size and weight compared with control mice. Increased invasiveness was apparent in sleep fragmentation tumors, which penetrated the tumor capsule into surrounding tissues, including adjacent muscle. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) were more numerous in sleep fragmentation tumors, where they were distributed in a relatively closer ...

Results: Eleven patients were Cp DNA-positive and 16 were Cp DNA negative. Doxycycline was well tolerated. At a median follow-up of 14 months, lymphoma regression was complete in six patients, and a partial response (≥50% reduction of all measurable lesions) was observed in seven patients (overall response rate [complete and partial responses] = 48%). Lymphoma regression was observed in both Cp DNA-positive patients (seven of 11 experienced regression) and Cp DNA-negative patients (six of 16 experienced regression) (64% versus 38%; P = .25, Fishers exact test). The three patients with regional lymphadenopathies and three of the five patients with bilateral disease achieved objective response. In relapsed patients, response was observed both in previously irradiated and nonirradiated patients. The 2-year failure-free survival rate among the doxycycline-treated patients was 66% (95% confidence interval = 54 to 78), and 20 of the 27 patients were progression free ...
This is probably the biggest reason that no one should take too seriously Republican complaints about burdensome regulations strangling the economy. The truth is that most reformers prefer fairly simple rules. In the tax world, theyd prefer to simply tax all income. In the environmental world, theyd prefer to set firm limits for pollutants. In the financial world, theyd prefer blunt rules that cut off risky activity at its knees.. But businesses dont like simple rules, because simple rules are hard to evade. So they lobby endlessly for exemptions both big and small. This is why we end up with tax subsidies for bow-and-arrow makers. Its why we end up with environmental rules that treat a hundred different industries a hundred different ways. Its why financial regulators dont enact simple leverage rules or place firm asset caps on firm size. Those would be hard to get around and might genuinely eat into bank profits. Complex rules, conversely, are the meat and drink of $500-per-hour lawyers ...

Similar to other series, the most common lymphoma subtype in our collection of ocular adnexal lymphomas was the EMZL (67% of our patients). Approximately one third of these cases had been previously diagnosed as RLH. A revision of the original diagnosis could be made, however, on the basis of the morphology and the immunophenotype of the infiltrating cells, in particular, the demonstration of a monotypical expression of either the light or heavy chains of the immunoglobulin molecules. This relatively high proportion of lymphoma cases with the former diagnosis RLH exemplifies the difficulty in distinguishing RLH and many EMZL on the basis of conventional histology. EMZL was only described as an entity in 1983 by Isaacson and co-workers, and, therefore, it can be assumed that many EMZL of the ocular adnexa (and other sites) were misdiagnosed as RLH before this description. It would also explain the relatively high incidence of reported progression of RLH of the ocular adnexa into systemic lymphoma ...
ICS: Intercostal Space, IC: Intercostal, IV: Intervertebral, CD,HV: Castlemans Disease, Hyaline Vascular Type. Several previous reports have demonstrated that Castlemans disease can mimic various tumors, for example: thymoma (1), angiofibroma (2), meningioma (8), pulmonary neoplasms (9), adnexal mass (10), and cervical mass (4). Many lesions exhibit a similar radiological appearance and only a pathologic examination allows an accurate diagnosis. Because Castlemans disease is a rare reactive entity, its diagnosis is generally overlooked by radiologists and clinicians.. In hyaline vascular Castlemans disease, the adherence by an involved lymph node to the adjacent soft tissue has been described (10), however encapsulation and self-limitation are constant features of hyaline vascular Castlemans disease. Hyaline vascular Castlemans disease usually does not invade and replace neighboring structures. Our case is unique because it exhibits local invasion of adjacent structures and questions the ...
A 23-year-old woman (gravida 3, para 2) at 7 weeks gestational age presented to the labor and delivery emergency department with painless, minimal vaginal spotting. On physical examination her vital signs were stable, with blood pressure of 120/88 mm Hg and a pulse rate of 85 beats/min. Her serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) level was 433 mIU/mL. The patient denied medical or surgical history aside from 2 uncomplicated vaginal deliveries, a normal menstrual cycle, and no use of contraception, alcohol, or illicit drugs. An osteopathic structural examination (OSE) of the thoracic and lumbar spines, rib cage, and sacrum was performed and revealed that T1-T12 and L1-L5 were neutral, rotated left, and sidebent right and the sacrum was rotated left on a left oblique axis. No Chapman reflex points were identified at this time. Transvaginal ultrasonography revealed a normal uterus and adnexal structures, no free fluid in the pelvis, and no intrauterine pregnancy (IUP). The patient was given the ...

Medical Group Challenges Arkansas Scope Expansion  Medical Group Challenges Arkansas Scope Expansion
Three months ago, Arkansas optometrists were boasting a scope-of-practice expansion win in the legislature. Now, that hard-fought authorization may be snatched from the jaws of victory as one medical group aims to return the measure to the ballot in the form of a voter referendum.. The bill, Act 579, amended optometry to include local injections, incision and curettage of chalazia, removal of superficial periocular skin lesions and some laser procedures (with training and certification). These procedures have all been approved in neighboring Oklahoma for 20 years and are now available to optometric patients over the border in Louisiana as well. The bill passed the Arkansas State Senate with a 25-8 margin in March after a similar, but even broader, proposal was rejected in February.. The legislation doesnt sit well with some in the medical community. "Were disappointed to learn special interests have formed a group to try to unwind Act 579," says Vicki Farmer, executive director of the Arkansas ...

OCT Shows VF Loss Better Than Funduscopy  OCT Shows VF Loss Better Than Funduscopy
Clinicians still monitoring glaucoma patients with the tried-and-true optic disc assessment should consider investing in an OCT, according to new research. A team of investigators at UCLAs Jules Stein Eye Institute recently tested the two tools head-to-head and found baseline OCT predicted visual field progression better than cup-to-disc ratio and disc damage likelihood scores.. Researchers included 171 eyes of 95 patients with retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular OCT readings, as well as disc photos, at baseline and at least two years of follow-up. Study participants also had visual field data for at least five years. The researchers noted 17 eyes progressed by the final follow-up based on pointwise event analysis, while 25 were identified as progressors by visual field index trend analysis. Several factors predicted visual field progression, including thinner central corneal thickness and average peripapillary RNFL, as well as female gender.. In addition, the team found a higher ...
