An Effective Use of Methylene Blue Dye for Guiding Resection of Nasal Dermoid Sinus Cyst

Shilpi Karmakar, Arun Kumar Singh and Saurabh Karmakar

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 10, 2021

Nasal dermoid sinus cyst (NDSC) is a rare congenital lesion, typically presenting at birth or in early infancy. Treatment of NDSC includes complete resection of the mass and the sinus tract, which may extend intracranially. Incomplete resection of the track is associated with high recurrence. We were looking for methods to delineate the NDSC track, without increasing the financial burden to the patient. The patient was a 12-year-old female who came with a recent onset nasal swelling, which devel...

Causes and Prevention of Running-Related Injury: An Engineering Perspective

Lee Saxby and Mick Wilkinson

Article Type: Current Opinion | First Published: March 17, 2021

There is a high prevalence of, and lack of a systematic reduction in running-related injuries. Despite decades of research, there remains a lack of consensus about risk factors and solutions for running injury in the scientific literature. In response to suggestions that running injuries should be viewed from alternative conceptual frameworks, this paper has viewed running from an engineering perspective to suggest causes and solutions based on the 'fundamental principles' approach that characte...

Endogenous Soluble TRAIL Contributes to the Survival and Growth of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Joaquín Marco-Brualla, Ana Gallego-Lleyda, Jara Sanz, Paula Desportes, Pablo Fernández, Luis Martínez-Lostao, Pedro Lapuente and Alberto Anel

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 13, 2021

TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is known to induce caspase-dependent apoptosis in tumor cells, while sparing normal cells. However, TRAIL is also able to induce proliferation in cells that are resistant to cell death induction, since it can also activate NF-κB-dependent signaling pathways. Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC) transfected with TRAIL have been used to treat cancer, with promising results in pre-clinical models, especially in gliomas. Regarding endogenous TRAIL expres...

The Most Accurate Ultrasonographic Finding for Diagnosis of Lower-Extremity Arterial Disease in Patients with Critical Limb Ischemia

Tanapong Panpikoon, Jiemjit Tapaneeyakorn, Tharintorn Treesit and Chinnarat Bua-ngam

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 13, 2021

To search for the most accurate duplex ultrasound finding for diagnosis of arterial stenosis and occlusion in patients with critical limb ischemia. Combining the findings from B-mode with color and spectral PW Doppler ultrasound showed the higher accuracy than using one finding, with increased sensitivity and negative predictive value. Combined > 50% decrease in diameter seen on B-mode ultrasound with PSV ratio ≥ twofold, relative to the proximal segment, showed the highest accuracy for diagno...

Prevalence of Incidental Thyroid Nodules at Necropsies Performed at a Division of Postmortem Inspection in Brazil

Gilberto Mendes Menderico Jr, PhD, MD, Leonardo Salgado Alves, MD, Layla Riva Ismail, MD, Pedro Estefan Otaviani Bernis, MD, Larissa Cichello Benassi, MD, and Rodrigo Lopes Pessoa da Silva, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 08, 2021

Thyroid nodules are prevalent in the general population, especially in women and the elderly. Often, the diagnosis of nodular lesions is incidental, representing a very common finding, and usually these lesions are not clinically important since few of them carry a malignant neoplasm. Despite the low incidence of malignancy, it is imperative to exclude the presence of thyroid carcinoma. This report aims is to identify the prevalence of thyroid nodules in the population of Baixada Santista (a geo...

Destructive Mono-Arthritis Caused by Mycobacterium bovis during Treatment with Pembrolizumab in a Patient Previously Treated with BCG Instillations for Bladder Cancer: A Case Report

Cynthia Epskamp, Susanne M Huijts, Peter AHM van der Lubbe and Debbie G.J. Robbrecht

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 10, 2021

Immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) treatment is an integral part of second line treatment of patients with urothelial carcinoma (UC) as well as in first line in cisplatin-ineligible patients with PD-L1 positive tumours. A substantial proportion of patients with bladder cancer have been treated with intravesical Mycobacterium bovis BCG in the past. Although it is rare, disseminated infections with Mycobacterium bovis have been described, but not in association with ICI treatment. We herein report ...

Oral Biofilm and Its Impact on Oral Health, Psychological and Social Interaction

Gedif Meseret Abebe

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 12, 2021

Oral health can be act as “mirror” that indicate and reflect the overall health condition, life style and oral hygiene. Oral cavity harbours arrays of microorganisms that interact with diet, oral environment, and host. This complex dynamic interaction results in microbial colonization and the subsequent oral biofilm formation. Oral biofilms are highly ordered, surface-associated assemblages of microorganisms embedded in an extracellular matrix. These surface-attached microbial communities ar...

Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Symptomatic Vitreous Floaters: Another Look

Tayab C Waseem, PhD, Evan R DaBreo, MD, Jiang Douglas, MS, Yousef Hasanzadah, BS, Rebecca Clawson, BS, Alan L Wagner, MD, FACS and Kapil G Kapoor, MD, FACS

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: March 22, 2021

Historically, pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) has been considered a controversial treatment for elective removal of primary symptomatic vitreous opacities (floaters) due to the possibility of extreme and even blinding side effects of the procedure. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and patient satisfaction level for those who undergo PPV for removal of vitreous floaters. This was a retrospective study of 54 eyes in 51 patients (average age 68) who underwent 23 gauges PPV between 2...

Multiple Mononeuropathy in Churg-Strauss Syndrome Presenting as a Subacute Ascending Polineuropathy: A Case Report

Michele Pistacchi, Manuela Gioulis, MD, Sergio Ferrari, MD, Tiziana Cavallaro, MD and Sandro Zambito Marsala, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 13, 2021

Multiple mononeuropathy is not unusual in Churg-Strauss Syndrome. Presenting symptoms may be subacute and the differential diagnosis became complicated, particularly when neuropathy is the sole manifestation of disease. We report a clinical case of an adult man hospitalized complaining symptoms of subacute neuropathy successively recognized as multiple mononeuropathy. Histological examination of sural nerve showed the evidence of systemic necrotizing vasculitis with eosinophils infiltration, con...
