Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a very rare, vascular, low-grade malignant tumor found in the lungs, liver, bone, and other soft tissues. Most patients with pulmonary epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (PEH) are asymptomatic but usually present with multiple bilateral nodular lesions in the lungs. Currently, surgical lung biopsy, histology, and immunohistochemical methods are essential for diagnosis. However, there is no standard therapy for the treatment for PEH. Our paper describes the clinico-radiologic features and genomics of PEH based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) in a 43-year-old male we encountered...

Ephedra have been used as a common traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. However, the perspiration effect of the unprocessed ephedra was too strong. Clinical trials have shown that processing methods play a critical role in moderating the perspiration property of ephedra according to the needs. A LC-MS/MS method was developed and validated to compare the pharmacokinetic properties of the three ephedrines after oral administration of unprocessed and honey-fried ephedra extract. The contents of honey, frying temperature, and frying time were set at 20%, 116°C, and 7 min by the Box-Behnken response surface method, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: To study the influence of esophageal cancer surgeon volume upon mortality from upper gastrointestinal emergencies. BACKGROUND: Volume-outcome relationships led to the centralization of esophageal cancer surgery. METHODS: Hospital Episode Statistics data were used to identify patients admitted to hospitals within England (1997-2012). The influence of esophageal high-volume (HV) cancer surgeon status (≥5 resections per year) upon 30-day and 90-day mortality from esophageal perforation (EP), paraesophageal hernia causing obstruction or gangrene (PEH) and perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) was analyzed, independent of HV esophageal cancer center status and patient and disease-specific confounding factors...

Inflammation and oxidative stress contribute to emphysema in COPD. Although corticosteroids are the standard of care for COPD, they do not reduce oxidative stress, and a subset of patients is steroid-resistant. Vitamin E isoform γ-tocotrienol possesses both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties that may protect against emphysema. We aimed to establish the therapeutic potential of γ-tocotrienol in cigarette smoke-induced COPD models in comparison with prednisolone. BALB/c mice were exposed to cigarette smoke for 2 weeks or 2 months...

Conductive hearing loss (CHL) is caused by the disruption of the sound conductive chain that, in turn, may be due to diseases of the external and middle ear. High-resolution computed tomography (CT) is the imaging modality of choice to evaluate CHL because of its excellent spatial resolution. Along with clinical and otoscopic findings, CT also helps in the diagnosis and preoperative planning. This pictorial review aims to illustrate the CT features of common conditions causing CHL that may arise from the external and middle ear, as well as highlights some of the key imaging features that are helpful in management...

Hiatal hernia is a frequent pathology. Two types have been described : sliding hernia and paraesophageal hernia (PEH). The first one is the most frequent and is associated with reflux disease. Patients with PEH have a large variety of symptoms, such as chest pain, dyspnea, regurgitation, iterative pneumonia and iron-deficiency anemia. Operative management is necessary for sliding hernia with reflux disease and for symptomatic PEH, respectively. In patients with asymptomatic PEH, operative risk must be balanced with the risk of postoperative complications...

Wünderlich syndrome is a rare entity characterised by spontaneous retroperitoneal haemorrhage with renal origin. We present a case of Wünderlich syndrome secondary to clotting dyscrasia in a 64-year-old woman. The patient experienced a second Wünderlich haemorrhagic event with metachronous pseudoaneurysm formation, which was likely secondary to the large subcapsular haematoma stripping the renal capsule and tearing the cortical arteries. Selective pseudoaneurysm embolisations were successfully performed on both occasions...

BACKGROUND: Epithelioid haemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare low-grade vascular neoplasm that can arise in the lung, liver, soft tissues or, less commonly, bone. Due to its low prevalence of less than one in a million and its non-specific clinical features, EHE is often misdiagnosed and managed inappropriately. Here we discuss the case of a 58 year-old gentleman with mediastinal EHE and review existing literature on pulmonary EHE (PEH). CASE HISTORY: A 58 year-old gentleman presented to our outpatient Clinic with chest discomfort and palpitations...

Approximately 20% early-stage (I/II) colorectal cancer (CRC) patients develop metastases despite curative surgery. We aim to develop a formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE)-based predictor of metastases in early-stage, clinically-defined low risk, microsatellite-stable (MSS) CRC patients. We considered genome-wide mRNA and miRNA expression and mutation status of 20 genes assayed in 150 fresh-frozen tumours with known metastasis status. We selected 193 genes for further analysis using NanoString nCounter arrays on corresponding FFPE tumours...

Density functional theory calculations were used to investigate the three possible modes of activation for the coupling of CO2 with alkynyl indoles in the presence of a guanidine base. The first of these mechanisms, involving electrophilic activation, was originally proposed by Skrydstrup et al. (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, 54, 6682). The second mechanism involves the nucleophilic activation of CO2 . Both of these electrophilic and nucleophilic activation processes involve the formation of a guanidine-CO2 zwitterion adduct...

Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is the most common known risk factor for secondary glaucoma and a major cause of blindness worldwide. Variants in two genes, LOXL1 and CACNA1A, have previously been associated with XFS. To further elucidate the genetic basis of XFS, we collected a global sample of XFS cases to refine the association at LOXL1, which previously showed inconsistent results across populations, and to identify new variants associated with XFS. We identified a rare protective allele at LOXL1 (p.Phe407, odds ratio (OR) = 25, P = 2...
