BACKGROUND: Brachioplasties often culminate in unsightly scars that are a source of disappointment to patients. We aimed to evaluate the results of M-Y axilloplasty following massive weight loss. PATIENTS: We performed a retrospective assessment of our technique for brachioplasty with an M-Y axilloplasty in 159 female patients after massive weight loss. This retrospective study covered a study period of 10 years. METHOD: After substantial lipoaspiration, the incision is placed on the internal side of the arm, with an M-shaped axilloplasty...

In the management of epithelial ovarian cancers, imaging is used for cancer detection and staging, both before and after initial treatment. The decision of whether to pursue initial cytoreductive surgery for ovarian cancer depends in part on accurate staging. Contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis (and chest where indicated) is the current imaging modality of choice for the initial staging evaluation of ovarian cancer. Fluorine-18-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose PET/CT and MRI may be appropriate for problem-solving purposes, particularly when lesions are present on CT but considered indeterminate...

Muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) has a tendency toward urothelial multifocality and is at risk for local and distant spread, most commonly to the lymph nodes, bone, lung, liver, and peritoneum. Pretreatment staging of MIBC should include imaging of the urothelial upper tract for synchronous lesions; imaging of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis for metastases; and MRI pelvis for local staging. CT abdomen and pelvis without and with contrast (CT urogram) is recommended to assess the urothelium and abdominopelvic organs...

INTRODUCTION: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in industrialised countries. Survival depends on prompt identification of cardiac arrest and on the quality and timing of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation. For laypeople, there has been a growing interest on hands-only CPR, meaning continuous chest compression without interruption to perform ventilations. It has been demonstrated that intentional interruptions in hands-only CPR can increase its quality...

BACKGROUND: Three types of central venous access devices (CVADs)-peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), skin-tunnelled central catheters (Hickman-type devices), and implantable chest wall Ports (Ports)-are routinely used in the intravenous administration of anti-cancer treatment. These devices avoid the need for peripheral cannulation and allow for home delivery of treatment. Assessments of these devices have tended to focus on medical and economic factors, but there is increased interest in the importance of patient experiences and perspectives in this area...

A 27-year-old woman had progressive bony ankylosis over both hands since she was 5 years old. Bony ankylosing over the peripheral joints and spine slowly progressed, and scoliosis surgery was performed at age 14. Recently, she developed difficulty walking, changing position, and opening her mouth. A neurologist was consulted and ruled out the suspicion of narcolepsy. Chest CT showed ankylosing spondylitis. A bone scan showed a bizarre pattern with radiouptake to the left maxilla, bilateral sacroiliac joints, left middle third femur, and soft tissue uptake over bilateral arms, legs, and pelvis...

INTRODUCTION: The anatomical features of the chest identify an individual as male or female and even the smallest details of these features determine the appropriate appearance for each gender. In female-to-male patients, the creation of an aesthetically pleasing male chest is the most important step. Incorrect positioning of the nipple areola complex (NAC) on the chest wall and suboptimal shaping and sizing of the NAC are common pitfalls in male NAC creation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We have analyzed the anatomical chest features of 26 water polo players, to verify our hypothesis of the relationship between the pectoralis major muscle and NAC and to create a method for repositioning the NAC that is applicable in the operating room, is easy, practical and reproducible without the use of formulas and based on an easily identifiable landmark...

INTRODUCTION: Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes ischaemic stroke and based on risk factor evaluation warrants anticoagulation therapy. In stroke survivors, AF is typically detected with short-term ECG monitoring in the stroke unit. Prolonged continuous ECG monitoring requires substantial resources while insertable cardiac monitors are invasive and costly. Chest and thumb ECG could provide an alternative for AF detection poststroke.The primary objective of our study is to assess the incidence of newly diagnosed AF during 28 days of chest and thumb ECG monitoring in cryptogenic stroke...

BACKGROUND: The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) reported lung cancer and all-cause mortality reductions for low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) versus chest x-ray (CXR) screening. Although LDCT lung screening has received a grade B from the United States Preventive Services Task Force and is a covered service under most health plans, concerns remain on the costs engendered by screening, and the impact of the high rate of significant incidental finding (SIF) detection on those costs...

BACKGROUND: Gynaecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast, of which the psychological burden on the patient can be considerable, with the increased risk of disorders such as depression, anxiety, and social phobia. Minimal scarring can be achieved by liposuction alone, though it is known to have a limited effect on the dense glandular and fibroconnective tissues. We know of few studies published on "liposuction alone", so we designed this study to evaluate the outcome of combining liposuction with glandular liposculpturing through two axillary incisions as a single treatment for the management of grades I and II gynaecomastia...

INTRODUCTION: Haemothorax following blunt thoracic trauma is a common source of morbidity and mortality. The optimal management of moderate to large haemothoraces has yet to be defined. Observational data have suggested that expectant management may be an appropriate strategy in stable patients. This study aims to compare the outcomes of patients with haemothoraces following blunt thoracic trauma treated with either chest drainage or expectant management. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: This is a single-centre, dual-arm randomised controlled trial...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most clinically common cardiac arrhythmia. Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) has been widely applied in the treatment of AF, However, to our knowledge, there has been no systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trails (RCTs) regarding the effectiveness of this treatment. Therefore, we provide a protocol to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of CHM for AF. METHODS: The databases reviewed to collect RCTs related to CHM treatment for AF will be as follows: 3 English literature databases, which are PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library, and 3 Chinese literature databases, which are CBM, CNKI, and Wanfang...

BACKGROUND: Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures. It is performed worldwide as an outpatient procedure. However, the complications are underestimated and underreported by caregivers. We present a case of delayed diagnosis of bilothorax secondary to liver and gallbladder injury after tumescent liposuction. METHODS: A 26-year-old female patient was transferred to our emergency department from an aesthetic clinic with worsening dyspnea, tachypnea and fatigue...

BACKGROUND: Indeterminate pulmonary nodules in patients diagnosed with osteosarcoma present a challenge for accurate staging and prognosis. The aim of this study was to explore the significance of this finding. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of 120 patients with osteosarcoma was performed in the North East of England. Chest computed tomographies (CTs) at presentation were reviewed and the incidence of 'indeterminate' nodules recorded. Follow-up scans were reviewed and survival as well as prognostic features were analysed...

OBJECTIVE: According to the guidelines, rescuers should provide chest compressions (CC) ∼1.5 inches (40 mm) for infants. Feedback devices could help rescuers perform CC with adequate rates (CCR) and depths (CCD). However, there is no CC feedback device for infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We suggest a smartwatch-based CC feedback application for infant CPR. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: We created a smartwatch-based CC feedback application. This application provides feedback on CCD and CCR by colour and text for infant CPR...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to evaluate radiologists' performance in detecting actionable nodules on chest CT when aided by a pulmonary vessel image-suppressed function and a computer-aided detection (CADe) system. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A novel computerized pulmonary vessel image-suppressed function with a built-in CADe (VIS/CADe) system was developed to assist radiologists in interpreting thoracic CT images. Twelve radiologists participated in a comparative study without and with the VIS/CADe using 324 cases (involving 95 cancers and 83 benign nodules)...

INTRODUCTION: The introduction of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) contributed to the growing diffusion of direct-to-implant breast reconstruction (DTI-BR) following mastectomy for breast cancer. According to specific legislations, European specialists could not benefit from the use of human-derived ADMs, even though most evidence in the literature are available for this kind of device, showed optimal outcomes in breast reconstruction. The Skin Bank of the Bufalini Hospital (Cesena, Italy) obtained in 2009 the approval for the production and distribution of a new human cadaver-donor-derived ADM (named with the Italian acronym, MODA, for matrice omologa dermica acellulata) from the Italian National Transplant Center and National Health Institute...

INTRODUCTION: Lung cancer (LC) is the leading cause of death from cancer. Early diagnosis of LC is of paramount importance in terms of prognosis. The health authorities of most countries do not accept screening programmes based on low-dose chest CT (LDCT), especially in Europe, because they are flawed by a high rate of false-positive results, leading to a large number of invasive diagnostic procedures. These authorities advocated further research, including companion biological tests that could enhance the effectiveness of LC screening...
