BACKGROUD: The biopsy samples might be the only tumor material available for testing the EGFR mutation status in some cases, but these samples are often composed of variable ratios of tumor to normal cells. In this study, we sought to build a scoring system to predict Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 mutation in lung adenocarcinoma by clinical and radiological features. METHODS: Enrolled in this study were 601 patients with lung adenocarcinoma. Qualitative evaluation of the clinical and radiological features included 25 aspects...

BACKGROUND: Low back pain (LBP) affects about 80% of the population at some time in their lives. Exercise therapy is the most widely used nonsurgical intervention for low back pain in practice. Thus, whole-body vibration (WBV) exercise is becoming increasingly popular in relieving musculoskeletal pain and in improving function. However, the efficacy of WBV exercise is not without dispute for low back pain. This meta-analysis, with its comprehensive and rigorous methodology, will provide better insight into this problem...

This study aimed to investigate the reliability of pseudo-computed tomography (pseudo-CT) imaging based on ultrasound (US) deformation fields under different binary masks in radiotherapy.We used 3-dimensional (3D) CT and US images, including those acquired during CT simulation positioning, and cone-beam CT (CBCT) and US images acquired 1 week after treating 3 patients with cervical cancer. Image data of 3 different layers were selected from the US images, and 3D CT images of each patient were selected. For US image registration, the following were created and applied: binary masks of the region of interest overlapping (ROIO) between the US image based on simulation positioning and US image for positioning verification, region of interest (ROI), whole overlapping (wholeO), and whole imaging region (whole)...

INTRODUCTION: Epithelioid sarcoma is a malignant soft tissue tumor arising from mesenchymal tissue and usually occurs in the extremities. The tumor involving the head and neck region is extremely rare. We present radiologically well-documented case of an epithelioid sarcoma arising from the temporal space. CASE PRESENTATION: A 35-year-old woman presented with a slowly growing, painless palpable mass in the left temporal area. Ultrasound (US) revealed a lobulated hypoechoic mass with internal vascularity...

Xinjia Wang, Zhenyu Liu
BACKGROUND: In the past decade, accumulated evidence has suggested that genetic variation is related to the pathogenesis of osteosarcoma. Although there are a large number of studies on the association between genetic variation and osteosarcoma, their results are inconsistent. To clarify these findings, we performed a systematic meta-analysis using allelic contrasts for each gene-specific single nucleotide variants with all available data in the field of osteosarcoma. METHODS: The literature search for relevant studies was conducted in PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to systematically evaluate the prognostic role of pretreatment lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) concentration for survival in patients with lung cancer through performing a meta-analysis. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure were searched for potentially relevant literature. The study and patients' characteristics were extracted. Hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were pooled to estimate the prognostic role of LDH in patients with lung cancer...

According to the sentinel node biopsy (SNB), systematic pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) may not be needed for patients with early-stage endometrial cancer. On the other hand, imaging technology including fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) has been developing worldwide. The aim of this study was to evaluate the combined diagnostic accuracy of FDG PET/CT and SNB in the prediction of pelvic lymph node metastasis in endometrial cancer patients.One hundred twenty-one patients with endometrial cancer underwent FDG PET/CT before hysterectomy and received SNB followed by systematic PLND...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic criteria of dual time point Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in differentiating malignant from benign focal hypermetabolic lesions of duodenum.A total of 50 patients underwent F-FDG PET/CT at 2 points: 60 ± 13.7 minutes (early imaging) and 120 ± 26.4 minutes (delayed imaging) after tracer injection. Early maximum standardized uptake value (SUVE), delayed maximum standardized uptake value (SUVD), difference between early and delayed maximum standardized uptake value (D-SUVmax), and retention index (RI) were calculated for each duodenal lesion...

To identify the risk factors for developing renal involvement and severe kidney disease in Chinese childhood Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) patients.This was a retrospective study of 2731 children with HSP diagnosed between 2012 and 2015. We analyzed their demographic data, clinical manifestations, and laboratory tests retrospectively. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to assess the risk factors.Renal involvement occurred in 844 HSP patients (35.60%), and severe kidney disease occurred in 104 HSP patients (4...

Bi O Jeong, Duke Whan Chung, Jong Hun Baek
RATIONALE: Calcific myonecrosis is a very rare late sequela that occurs in patients who have had trauma accompanied by vascular compromise, in which a single muscle or entire muscles in a compartment undergoes necrosis and form a calcified mass. It is mostly a benign entity, but some cases cause bone destruction and form non-healing chronic sinuses. In such cases, wound management becomes difficult and there is a potential risk of secondary infection. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 60-year-old male was referred for evaluation of a pain, erythematous changes, and draining sinus of the anterolateral aspect of his left leg...

RATIONALE: Patients repatriated from foreign hospitals are sources of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) bacteria outbreaks. Thus, an individual benefit potential for the patient opposes a collective ecological risk potential. These ethical issues have not been well studied. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report the case of a 74-year-old patient repatriated from Mauritius to the French island of Reunion who presented mesenteric infarction evolving over several days, and who suffered a cardiac arrest before transfer...

This study's purpose was to determine the sensitivity, false-positive and false-negative of seizure detection in adult intensive care by amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) and color density spectral array (CDSA).30 continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings were randomly performed in 3 digital EEG-recording machines, 3 specialized neurophysiologists participated in this study, underwent 4 hours of training of CDSA and aEEG, marked any epochs suspected to be seizures without access to the raw EEG...

Guodong Pang, Zuyun Duan, Chunchun Shao, Fang Zhao, Hai Zhong, Guangrui Shao
This study is to investigate quantitative measures and heterogeneity of perfusion parameters in the differential diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and hemangioma.In total, 32 HCC and 44 hemangioma (types 1, 2, and 3) cases were included in this retrospective study. Hepatic artery coefficient (HAC), portal vein coefficient (PVC), and arterial enhancement fraction (AEF) were calculated. Tumor heterogeneity was analyzed. Perfusion parameters and corresponding percentiles were compared between the HCC and hemangioma (especially atypical hemangioma) cases, as well as between the substantial lesion part and surrounding normal tissue...

We aimed to compare the modulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with that in healthy ovulatory women on the basis of heart rate variability (HRV), and to analyze the characteristics of the ANS in PCOS.In a retrospective chart review, HRV, body mass index, and physical examination data in women with PCOS and those with regular menstrual cycles were collected. Approval from the institutional review board (IRB) was obtained (IRB No. 2017-05-007-001) for this study...

The effectiveness of a hospital incident-reporting system (IRS) on improve patient safety is unclear. This study objective was to assess which implemented improvement actions after the analysis of the incidents reported were effective in reduce near-misses or adverse events.Patient safety incidents (PSIs), near misses and adverse events, notified to the IRS were analyzed by local clinical safety leaders (CSLs) who propose and implement improvement actions. The local CSLs received training workshops in patient safety and analysis tools...
