There are many kinds of unusual presentations or associations and clinical mimics of acute appendicitis, and definitive diagnosis requires knowledge of the imaging findings in some cases. The unusual presentations and associations of acute appendicitis included in this study are perforated appendicitis, acute appendicitis occurring in hernias, acute appendicitis with cystic endosalpingiosis, intussusception of appendix, and acute appendicitis with pregnancy. We also present uncommon gastrointestinal, urinary and gynecologic clinical mimics of acute appendicitis including anomalous congenital band, duplication cysts, giant Meckel's diverticulitis, inflammatory fibroid polyp, renal artery thrombosis, spontaneous urinary extravasation and OHVIRA syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in plasma - the so called liquid biopsy - is a novel method for early detection of cancer. Necrotic cancer cells release various DNA fragments that can be detected in plasma or serum. The aim of our study was to investigate the concentration of circulating ALU115, LINE79 and LINE297 fragments in plasma from venous and arterial blood of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients before, during and 5 days after surgical intervention. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty patients (16 female, 14 male, median age 56 years), undergoing surgery for colorectal and appendix cancer, and 17 healthy volunteers were included in this study...

This study examined the efficacy of marking wild populations of lampreys with visible implant elastomer (VIE) for 6-18 months to examine ammocoete movements using Cormack-Jolly-Seber (CJS) open-population models. These methods were tested on two lamprey populations in different river systems. American brook lamprey Lethenteron appendix at Dyke Creek apparent survival (φ) was high in the summer and winter (c. 0·7), but declined after flow events in the spring and autumn. Sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus at Oquaga Creek φ in the top-ranked models varied with stream location and time...
