BACKGROUND: Placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) and vasa previa (VP) are congenital disorders of placentation associated with high morbidity and mortality for both mothers and newborns when undiagnosed before delivery. Prenatal diagnosis of these conditions is essential to allow multidisciplinary management and thus improve perinatal outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To compare perinatal outcome in women with PAS or VP before and after implementation of targeted scanning protocols...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Hemangiopericytoma is a rare vascular tumor with central nervous system involvement representing only 1% of central nervous system tumors. They rarely affect the vertebral column. Complete surgical resection is the treatment of choice for hemangiopericytoma given their high rates of local recurrence. However, the high vascularity of such tumors with the risk of massive bleeding during surgery represents a significant challenge to surgeons. Therefore, preoperative endovascular embolization via the transarterial route has been advocated...

REVIEW
Georges Nasrallah, Fouad G Souki
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Laparoscopic kidney surgery is commonly used for living donor, partial, and total tumor nephrectomy. The successful emergence of laparoscopic technique was justified by the many benefits offered such as reduced blood loss, tissue trauma, pain, and hospital stay. However, this comes at the expense of physiologic changes and complications secondary to pneumoperitoneum, surgical technique, and patient positioning with significant challenges in anesthetic management. RECENT FINDINGS: A variety of laparoscopic approaches (transperitoneal, retroperitoneal, hand-assisted, robotic) are used with some having advantages over others...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of pleural infection with instillation of sequential intrapleural tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and human recombinant deoxyribonuclease (DNase) twice daily for a total of 6 doses has been shown to decrease surgical referral and improve radiographic imaging. This labor-intensive regimen was empirically chosen. Thus, it remains unclear whether the 2 drugs can be administered immediately one after the other (concurrent administration) instead of instilling them separately with a 1-hour to 2-hour interval in between (sequential administration)...

BACKGROUND: A mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) of the liver is a rare disease entity, occurring predominantly in the left hemiliver as reported by Simo et al.1 Thomas et al.2 and Vogt et al.3 Surgical resection of tumors at the hepatocaval confluence is a technically demanding procedure. Enucleation procedures have been performed for the management of benign or premalignant lesions such as cystic tumors as previously described by Thomas et al.2 and Vogt et al.3. We present a patient who underwent pure laparoscopic transhepatic enucleation to treat a MCN abutting the major hepatic veins at the hepatocaval confluence...

Autoimmune retinopathy (AIR) is a rare and still poorly understood immune-mediated disease that may cause inflammation from circulating autoantibodies against the retina. It may be related to history of autoimmune disease in the patient or in a family member or the presence of neoplastic disease in the individual. The disease may be subdivided into paraneoplastic and non-paraneoplastic AIR. When related to melanoma, it is referred to as MAR, and when related to other cancers, it is called CAR. The exact prevalence of AIR is unknown...

BACKGROUND: Malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) are becoming widely adopted for case management at community level. However, reports and anecdotal observations indicate that the blood transfer step poses a significant challenge to many users. This study sought to evaluate the inverted cup device in the hands of health workers in everyday clinical practice, in comparison with the plastic pipette, and to determine the volume accuracy of the device made of a lower-cost plastic. METHODS: The volume accuracy of inverted cup devices made of two plastics, PMMA and SBC, was compared by transferring blood 150 times onto filter paper and comparing the blood spot areas with those produced by 20 reference transfers with a calibrated micropipette...
