BACKGROUND: Intratumoral lung abscess is a secondary lung abscess that is considered to be fatal. Therefore, surgical procedures, although high-risk, have sometimes been performed for intratumoral lung abscesses. However, no studies have examined the surgical outcomes of non-small cell lung cancer patients with intratumoral lung abscesses. The aim of this study was to investigate the surgical and survival outcomes of non-small cell lung cancer patients with intratumoral lung abscesses...

BACKGROUND: Vertical bone augmentation (VBA) remains unpredictable and challenging for most clinicians. This study was aimed to compare hard tissue outcomes of VBA, with and without rhBMP-2, under space-making titanium mesh in a canine model. METHODS: Eleven male beagle dogs were used in the study. Experimental ridge defects were created to form atrophic ridges. VBA was performed via guide bone regeneration (GBR) using titanium mesh and allografts. In experimental hemimandibles, rhBMP-2/ACS was well mixed with allografts prior to procedures, whereas a control buffer was applied within controls...

We completed a systematic literature review of in vivo animal models that use arthrotomy-based methods to study particle-induced peri-implant osteolysis. The purpose of the review was to characterize the models developed to date, to determine the questions addressed, to assess scientific rigor and transparency and to identify gaps in knowledge. We probed three literature databases (Medline, Embase and Scopus) and found 77 manuscripts that fit the search parameters. In the most recent 10 years, researchers mainly used rat and mouse models, whereas in the previous 20 years large animal, canine and rabbit models were more common...

We present a case of a 52-year-old man with myasthenia gravis and a mediastinal tumor who was admitted to our hospital for surgical treatment. The pathologic examination of the resected tumor revealed a very rare case of a collision tumor: a B1B2 thymoma and a small lymphocytic lymphoma. Flow cytometry of the peripheral blood revealed the presence of a small number of leukemic cells. After postoperative irradiation of the mediastinum and chemotherapy a complete response in both diseases was achieved. The case confirms that a pathologist should always be aware that two different neoplasms can coexist in rare cases...

BACKGROUND: Long bone posttraumatic osteomyelitis (PTOM) is a relatively common complication following surgical fixation of open fractures. There is a lacking consensus on ideal strategies for diagnostic evaluation of long bone PTOM. While open bone biopsy and culture is considered the 'gold diagnostic standard,' its cost and invasiveness are often prohibitive and have prompted the search for alternate diagnostic methods. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of various diagnostic modalities relative to open bone biopsy and culture for the detection of long bone PTOM...

Intracranial metastasis from prostate cancer is rare. As treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer improves, the incidence of men with intracranial metastasis from prostate cancer is increasing. Radiation therapy for treatment of intracranial metastasis from prostate cancer is systematically reviewed. A comprehensive review examining peer-reviewed, English language articles from 1990 to 2015 was performed on multiple databases, yielding 1274 articles. These articles were reviewed and selected for studies that met the following inclusion criteria: (1) patients with intracranial metastases from prostate cancer; (2) patients underwent radiation therapy as primary or adjuvant therapy; (3) the sample size of patients was larger than 2...

Patients with head and neck malignancies commonly develop metastatic disease, yet rarely do these carcinomas metastasize to the brain. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is routinely employed to treat brain metastases (BM). This study was undertaken to examine the efficacy of SRS for BM from primary head and neck carcinomas. From 2000 to 2016, a total of 19 patients with 38 lesions were retrospectively identified. All patients presented with a primary head and neck malignancy and subsequently developed metastatic disease to the brain treated with SRS at our institution...

PURPOSE: To date, only silicone oils and gases have the appropriate characteristics for use in vitreo-retinal surgery as vitreous substitutes with intraocular tamponading properties. This preliminary study evaluated the safety and efficacy of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) for use as a tamponading agent in minipigs. METHODS: In 15 minipigs, 15 right eyes underwent vitrectomies followed by injection of MCT tamponade (day 1). Two groups were defined. In Group A (ten eyes), the surgical procedure before MCT injection included induced rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD), retina flattening, and retinopexy...
