U Ozyer, A Dirim
PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to determine the efficacy and safety of tandem ureteral stent placement in the management of malignant ureteral obstruction (MUO) refractory to single ureteral double-J stent drainage in women with gynecological malignancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on 14 women (mean age, 54.5±9.6 [SD] years; range: 38-70 years) who had tandem stent placement following failed single ureteral double-J stent placement from 2012 to 2017...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and clinical effectiveness of ultrasound and fluoroscopy-guided percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) placement in infants and young children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2015, 57 patients had a total of 66 fluoroscopically guided PCN placement procedures. There were 37 boys and 20 girls with a mean age 8.6±15.3 (SD) months (range: 1 day-75.5months). The most common underlying disease was upper-urinary-tract obstruction, including ureteropelvic-junction stenosis (27/66, 40...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the possible effects of gender on residents' and fellows' motivations in choosing radiology as a career in France, and on choosing a practice setting later on. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An online survey was sent to French residents and fellows in order to access their radiology practice and career aspirations, as well as the potential influence of their gender. Influence of being a woman on initial professional expectations, professional choices, and the evolution of career paths was investigated using the chi-square test...

F H Cornelis, F Deschamps
According to the literature, prophylactic consolidation of lytic metastasis located in the proximal femur is recommended when the Mirels' score is above 8. Osteoplasty alone provides inadequate consolidation but various devices have been used in association for better consolidation. The aim of this review is to detail the augmented osteoplasty techniques published in the literature and to report their safeties and their efficacies to prevent pathological fracture of the proximal femur. A Pubmed research found 5 studies that evaluated augmented osteoplasty of the proximal femur in cancer patients...

Patients with early or metastatic cancer may suffer from pain of different origins. The vast majority of these patients are not adequately treated by means of systemic analgesia and radiotherapy. Percutaneous neurolysis is performed using chemical agents or thermal energy upon sympathetic nervous system plexus for pain reduction and life quality improvement. Ablation and vertebral augmentation are included in clinical guidelines for metastatic disease. As far as the peripheral skeleton is concerned bone augmentation and stabilization can be performed by means of cement injection either solely performed or in combination to cannulated screws or other metallic or peek implants...

PURPOSE: To assess the relationship between radiographic findings of metabolic bone disease (MBD) and serum biochemical markers in preterm infants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 159 preterm infants were included in this study. Two readers reviewed the wrist radiography for grading according to MBD severity. We recorded the levels of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and phosphorous (P) immediately after birth, on the same day of the first wrist radiography (ALP-s, P-s), the highest/lowest ALP/P levels before the first wrist radiography (ALP-hb/P-lb) and during follow-up (ALP-h/P-l)...

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disorder defined by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus. It is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain and typically affects the ovaries, uterine ligaments, peritoneum, tubes, rectovaginal septum and bladder. It may, however, be found at various extrapelvic sites, including the perineum, liver, pancreas, lung or even the central nervous system, and in such cases, diagnosis may be quite challenging. Even though definitive diagnosis requires laparoscopy, preoperative identification of endometriosis is important not only to differentiate it from other diseases with similar clinical presentations but also, for accurate presurgical mapping, since complete removal of all endometriotic foci is critical for the effective treatment of the patient's symptoms...
