BACKGROUND AND AIM: Differential diagnosis between Cushing's Disease (CD) and Ectopic ACTH Syndrome (EAS) may be a pitfall for endocrinologists. The increasing use in clinical practice of chromatography and mass spectrometry improves the measurement of urinary free cortisol (UFF) and cortisone (UFE). We have recently observed that cortisol to cortisone ratio (FEr) was higher in a small series of EAS; in this study we collected a larger number of ACTH-dependent Cushing's Syndrome (CS) to study the role of FEr to characterize the source of corticotropin secretion...

BACKGROUND: Medical stabilization through inpatient nutritional rehabilitation is often necessary for patients with eating disorders (EDs) but includes the inherent risk of refeeding syndrome. Here we describe our experience of implementing and sustaining an inpatient nutritional rehabilitation protocol designed to strategically prepare patients with EDs and their families for discharge to a home setting in an efficient and effective manner from a general adolescent medicine unit. We report outcomes at admission, discharge, and 4-weeks follow-up...

Neurotransmission is based on the exocytic fusion of synaptic vesicles (SVs) followed by endocytic membrane retrieval and the reformation of SVs. Recent data suggest that at physiological temperature SVs are internalized via clathrin-independent ultrafast endocytosis (UFE) within hundreds of milliseconds, while other studies have postulated a key role for clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) of SV proteins on a timescale of seconds to tens of seconds. Here we demonstrate using cultured hippocampal neurons as a model that at physiological temperature SV endocytosis occurs on several timescales from less than a second to several seconds, yet, is largely independent of clathrin...

OBJECTIVE: The question whether arterial stiffness in hypertension is increased solely because of increased arterial pressure is not solved. Because measurement of arterial stiffness is highly dependent on measurement of blood pressure (BP), the development of methods independent of BP is necessary for clarifying this question. Ultrafast echography (UFE, Supersonic Imagine, Aix en Provence, France) makes use of very fast sampling rate (up to 10 kHz), so transient events such as pressure wave arrival can be tracked...

Background. Since its introduction in 1996, uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) has become standard medical practice in the management of symptomatic uterine fibroids. An extremely rare complication, pyomyoma, has been reported only 5 times previously in the literature following UFE. Case. A 37-year-old woman underwent UFE for symptomatic leiomyomas of the uterus. Signs and symptoms of uterine infection ensued, beginning at 6 days following the procedure. Recurrent fevers and increasing leukocytosis despite the intravenous administration of appropriate antibiotics eventually necessitated surgical intervention on postprocedure day #18...
