BACKGROUND: Surgery is the elective treatment for cervical relapse from differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) but it is technically challenging, with risk of failure and morbidity. We explored the feasibility and the efficacy of Radioguided Occult Lesion Localization (ROLL) with intratumoral 99mTc radiolabeled human albumin macroaggregates ([99mTc]MAA) injection in this setting. METHODS: Fifteen patients who underwent ROLL by ultrasonography (US)-guided intratumoral injection of [99mTc]MAA between December 2013 and October 2016 for DTC recurrence were considered for this study...

Despite the rapidly increasing prevalence of obesity in the transplant population, the optimal management of obese liver transplant candidates remains undefined. Setting strict body mass index cutoffs for transplant candidacy remains controversial, with limited data to guide this practice. Body mass index is an imperfect measure of surgical risk in this population, partly due to volume overload and variable visceral adiposity. Weight loss before transplantation may be beneficial, but it remains important to avoid protein calorie malnutrition and sarcopenia...

Cochlear implantation (CI) surgery is a very successful technique, performed on more than 300,000 people worldwide. However, since the challenge resides in obtaining an accurate surgical planning, computational models are considered to provide such accurate tools. They allow us to plan and simulate beforehand surgical procedures in order to maximally optimize surgery outcomes, and consequently provide valuable information to guide pre-operative decisions. The aim of this work is to develop and validate computational tools to completely assess the patient-specific functional outcome of the CI surgery...

Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common subtype of thyroid malignancy and has a good prognosis and low mortality rate. Surgery is the standard treatment for patients with primary and recurrent thyroid cancer. Although patients with PTC usually exhibit excellent treatment outcome, the incidence of recurrence in the neck ranges from 20% to 59%. When a patient with thyroid cancer is contraindicated for surgery, ultrasound (US)-guided ablation techniques, including ethanol ablation (EA) and thermal ablations, are suggested alternatives...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of lumbar disc degeneration disease has increased in recent years. Lumbar interbody fusion using two unilateral pedicle screws and a translaminar facet screw fixation has advantages of minimal invasiveness and lower costs compared with the traditional methods. Moreover, a method guided by a three-dimensional (3D) navigation template may help us improve the surgical accuracy and the success rate. This is the first randomised study using a 3D navigation template to guide a unilateral lumbar pedicle screw with contralateral translaminar facet screw fixation...
