PURPOSE: To evaluate efficacy of the stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsy(SVAB) using a decubitus table and to compare histologic underestimation rate between 11gauge(G)- and 8G-probes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pathologic results of SVAB using a decubitus table of 210(120 with 11G; 90 with 8G)-procedures in 208-women(median age, 48.8 years; range, 27-73 years) were retrospectively reviewed. SVAB was performed for suspicious microcalcification without mass on MMG and US...

Bone defect complicated by infection remains a major challenge in orthopedic surguries, and bone grafting for primary repair often associates with high failure rate. The rapid progress in the research spectrums of tissue-engineered bone and antibiotic delivery systems bring hope to solve this issue. Herein, we evaluated the local anti-infective and osteogenic potential of an injectable anti-infection tissue-engineered construct, which includes a fibrin gel scaffold and vancomycin alginate beads (Vanco-AB) to form composites, in the treatment of chronic osteomyelitis with bone defect in rabbit tibia...

Breast cancer (BC) is the second leading cause of death as a result of neoplasia in Mexico. This study aimed to identify the direct and indirect costs of treating female outpatients diagnosed with BC at a Mexican public hospital. A cross-sectional, observational, analytical study was conducted. A total of 506 medical records were analyzed and 102 were included in the cost analysis. The micro-costing process was used to estimate treatment costs. A 17-item questionnaire was used to obtain information on direct and indirect costs...

BACKGROUND: the role of simulation for training in procedures such as laparoscopic incisional hernia repair (LIHR) is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine whether performance in simulated LIHR correlates with operating room (OR) performance. METHODS: subjects performed LIHR in the University of Maryland Surgical Abdominal Wall (SAW) simulator and the OR. Trained observers used a LIHR-specific global rating scale (Global Operative Assessment of Laparoscopic Skills-Incisional Hernia) to assess performance...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Elevation in adduction is the most common pattern of vertical strabismus, and it is mostly treated with surgery. The results of weaking of inferior oblique muscle are very changeable. The aim of this study was to evaluate binocular vision using sensory tests before and one and six months after the surgery. METHODS: A total of 79 children were divided in two groups: the first, with inferior oblique muscle of overaction (n = 52), and the second with dissociated vertical deviation (DVD), and primary inferior oblique muscle overaction (n = 27)...
