Image-guided spinal surgery is becoming increasingly popular because it allows surgeons to achieve minimal invasiveness and maximum precision in the performed procedures. We present our initial experience with two cases operated on using O-arm-based spinal navigation at the Clinic of Neurosurgery in St George University Hospital, Plovdiv, Bulgaria. In the first case, we performed removal of extradural spinal tumor of the sixth thoracic vertebra and O-arm-navigated pedicle screw fixation. In the second case, we performed O-arm-navigated corpectomy of the fifth cervical vertebra and anterior spinal reconstruction and fusion with titanium expandable mesh and cervical plate in connection with degenerative narrowing of the cervical spinal canal that lead to clinically manifested myelopathy...

BACKGROUND: Uterine fibroids are a common problem for reproductive-aged women, yet little comparative effectiveness research is available to guide treatment choice. Uterine artery embolization and magnetic resonance imaging-guided focused ultrasound surgery are minimally invasive therapies approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for treating symptomatic uterine fibroids. The Fibroid Interventions: Reducing Symptoms Today and Tomorrow study is the first randomized controlled trial to compare these 2 fibroid treatments...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate the results of ultrasonography (US)-guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in hyperparathyroid patients who refused surgery or had high surgical risks. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Five patients with hyperparathyroidism (HPT) underwent US-guided RFA for a single hyperfunctioning parathyroid lesion. Post-ablation serum calcium and parathormone (PTH) assays were performed. All patients underwent imaging studies 6 months after the ablation to visualize the post-ablation change in the size of the treated parathyroid lesions...

Importance: The Second Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction (MI) divides MIs into different types. Type 1 MIs result spontaneously from instability of atherosclerotic plaque, whereas type 2 MIs occur in the setting of a mismatch between oxygen demand and supply, as with severe hypotension. Type 2 MIs are uncommon in the general population, but their frequency in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals is unknown. Objectives: To characterize MIs, including type; identify causes of type 2 MIs; and compare demographic and clinical characteristics among HIV-infected individuals with type 1 vs type 2 MIs...

REVIEW
Vaughn A Starnes, Maura E Sullivan
Since 2005 there have been very few (if any) individuals trained outside of the United States in congenital surgery. Confining congenital training to only programs in the US has with it some unintended consequences. First, we need to recognize that progress is made around the world and not only in the US. Second, we decrease our opportunity to establish international peers, which leads to less opportunity for multi-institutional and multi-national studies and intellectual isolation. Third, we are in a new age of globalization...

This article is a practical review update on ultrasound (US)-guided interventional procedures on peripheral nerves. Technical considerations, biopsy techniques, and some examples of injections are described. US is considered a safe imaging guidance for interventional procedures, due to its high spatial resolution and the possibility to image the needle and inject drugs in real time. US-guided injections could be considered a diagnostic and therapeutic option in the most common neuropathy, before or as an alternative to surgery...

BACKGROUND: Patients are increasingly using physician review websites to find "a good doctor." However, to our knowledge, no prior study has examined the relationship between online rating and an accepted measure of quality. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the association between online physician rating and an accepted measure of quality: 30-day risk-adjusted mortality rate following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. METHODS: In the US states of California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania-which together account for over one-quarter of the US population-risk-adjusted mortality rates are publicly reported for all cardiac surgeons...

BACKGROUND: Interscalene brachial plexus block (ISB) is the gold standard for postoperative pain management in shoulder surgery. However, this technique has side effects and potentially serious complications. The aim of this study was to compare the combinations of ultrasound-guided suprascapular (SSB) associated with supraclavicular nerve block (SCB) and ultrasound-guided ISB for postoperative analgesia after shoulder instability surgery. METHODS: Sixty ASA physical status I-II patients scheduled to undergo shoulder instability surgery were included...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Ultrasound-guided subsartorial saphenous nerve block is commonly used to provide complete surgical anesthesia of the foot and ankle in combination with a popliteal sciatic nerve block. However, in part owing to its small caliber and absence of a prominent vascular landmark in the subsartorial plane distal to the adductor canal, the saphenous nerve is more difficult to reliably block than the sciatic nerve in the popliteal fossa. Although the saphenous nerve is a sensory nerve only, neurostimulation can be used to elicit a "tapping" sensation on the anteromedial aspect of the lower leg extending toward the medial malleolus...

OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the analgesic feasibility of paralaminar in-plane (PL) approach for ultrasound-guided thoracic paravertebral block (USG-TPVB). As the needle trajectory was expected to be closely affected by the distance from the skin to the lamina-transverse process junction (LTPJ), we examined the correlativity between them on computed tomography (CT) or ultrasonography. METHODS: Thirty-two patients undergoing thoracotomy were recruited. We measured the distances between the skin and LTPJ using preoperative CT (S-L) and procedural ultrasonography (US-L)...

PURPOSE: Roughly two-thirds of early breast cancer cases are associated with negative axillary nodes and do not benefit from axillary surgery at all. Accordingly, there is an ongoing search for non-surgical staging procedures to avoid lymph-node dissection or sentinel node biopsy (SNB). Non-invasive imaging techniques with very high sensitivity (Se) and negative predictive value (NPV) could eventually replace SNB. We aimed to establish the role of axillary US and MRI, alone or in combination, associated with ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (US-FNAB) in the prediction of axillary node involvement...

BACKGROUND: In congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) with ambiguous genitalia, assigning gender of rearing can be complex, especially If genitalia is highly virilized. Apart from karyotype, prenatal androgen exposure, patient's gender orientation, sociocultural, and parental influences play a role. The aim of this study was to assess gender dysphoria and psychosocial issues in patients of CAH raised as males and females. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study that includes patients (old and new) with CAH who were treated by us in the last 6 months...
