Ultrasound is an undervalued non-invasive examination in the diagnosis of colonic diseases. It has been replaced by the considerably more expensive magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography, despite the fact that, as first examination, it can usefully supplement the diagnostic process. Transabdominal ultrasound can provide quick information about bowel status and help in the choice of adequate further examinations and treatment. Ultrasonography, as a screening imaging modality in asymptomatic patients can identify several colonic diseases such as diverticulosis, inflammatory bowel disease or cancer...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) represents one of the most innovative surgical treatments of hallux valgus (HV). However, long-term outcomes still remain a matter of discussion within the orthopaedic community. The purpose of this longitudinal prospective study was to evaluate radiographic and functional outcomes in patients with mild-to-severe HV who underwent Reverdin-Isham and Akin percutaneous osteotomy, following exostosectomy and lateral release. METHODS: Eighty patients with mild-to-severe symptomatic HV were treated by MIS...

Minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (mini-AVR) procedures are a valuable alternative to conventional open heart surgery. Currently, planning of mini-AVR consists of selection of the intercostal space closest to the sinotubular junction on preoperative computer tomography images. We developed an automated algorithm detecting the sinotubular junction (STJ) and intercostal spaces for finding the optimal incision location. The accuracy of the STJ detection was assessed by comparison with manual delineation by measuring the Euclidean distance between the manually and automatically detected points...

The purpose of this study is to present a "smart," open, minimally invasive surgical technique for rotator cuff repair of the shoulder. On the basis of an anatomic study by Tichy, we use a coracoacromial mobile window: We split-not detach-the deltoid muscle by respecting its fibers' orientation and resect the coracoacromial ligament before repairing the torn rotator cuff tendons with anchors. The described approach is fast, is technically uncomplicated, and can be carried out with a standard set of instruments...

It might be possible to remove thymic tumors with minimal invasion of the left brachiocephalic vein (BCV) using an advanced videoscopic technique; simple resection of this vessel can be achieved via such an approach. However, tumor invasion of the superior vena cava or right  BCV requires angioplasty or reconstruction, both of which are difficult to perform in videoscopic procedures. We report a case of invasive thymoma with localized invasion of the great vessels at the junction of the left BCV and superior vena cava...

INTRODUCTION: Although current techniques for accelerated tooth movement often involve invasive surgical procedures, micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) using mini-implants may facilitate orthodontic tooth movement without raising flaps, reduce surgical risks, and increase patient acceptance. In this study, we evaluated the effectiveness of mini-implant-facilitated MOPs in inducing accelerated tooth movement and investigated the potential risks for root resorption. METHODS: Five MOPs were placed on the left side around the maxillary first molars in 6 rats using an automated mini-implant driver, whereas the right side received no MOPs as the control...

BACKGROUND: As an alternative to open surgical repair, perventricular device closure provides minimally invasive treatment for doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defects. However, unlike percutaneous transcatheter access, mini-thoracotomy is still needed. This report describes the percutaneous perventricular device closure technique and its short-term results for this type of heart defect. METHODS: Sixteen patients who had isolated doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defects underwent percutaneous perventricular device closure...

Sialendoscopy (SE) represents nowadays one of the standard diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the treatment of major salivary glands lithiasis. We know from experience that it is successful only in small percentage of patients, when used in monotherapy. However, it represents an indispensable part of all of the combined minimally invasive gland-preserving treatment techniques, the success rate of which is around 90%. In this work, we focused on the role of sialendoscopy in the treatment of patients with larger inflamed fixed stones in glandula parotis...
