BACKGROUND AND AIM: Contrast-harmonic EUS (CH-EUS) has the ability to depict a tumor microvasculature. Decreased microvascular density has been identified as a factor associated with tumor aggressiveness. We aimed to study the accuracy of CH-EUS for the prediction of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) aggressiveness. METHODS: Between June 2009 and March 2015, all consecutive patients with histology-proven PNETs and CH-EUS examination were included. Nine endosonographers analyzed blindly all the videos...

AIM: To describe a comprehensive management protocol to treat cleft maxillary hypoplasia specific to the patient's age, degree of hypoplasia and presence or absence of velopharyngeal incompetence (VPI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 359 patients suffering from cleft maxillary hypoplasia were retrospectively studied from January 2004 till June 2015. Lateral cephalograms were taken to assess the degree of deformity and advancement achieved at three intervals. Patients were treated by four treatment modalities: Facemask therapy, Anterior maxillary advancement, Total maxillary osteogenesis and LeFort I advancement...

BACKGROUND: In our practice, we noticed an increased frequency of tracheobronchial branching abnormalities (TBAs) in patients with tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). This study aimed to determine whether an association exists between congenital TBAs and ToF with or without pulmonary atresia. METHODS AND RESULTS: The frequency of TBAs on chest computed tomography was assessed in 55 patients with ToF without pulmonary atresia, 34 patients with ToF with pulmonary arteria, and 100 control patients...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: LeFort colpocleisis is a minimally invasive surgical option for patients with pelvic organ prolapse who no longer desire sexual activity. Pelvic surgeons have limited exposure to this procedure during their training, and are therefore less likely to offer this procedure to their patients. METHODS: We use a split screen live action surgery, side by side with a low cost 3D model of a prolapse to describe a LeFort colpocleisis step by step...

PURPOSE: Zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures are frequent in facial trauma; only fractures of the mandible are more common. Although the frequency of these fractures is geographically consistent, the aetiology differs widely among countries and even regions. Differences in socio-economic status and the ageing population seem to be two causes. This retrospective epidemiological study evaluates patients who were surgically treated for ZMC fractures at a Swiss university clinic. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 471 patients who were surgically treated for ZMC fractures in an oral and maxillofacial surgery clinic at a Swiss university hospital between January 2004 and December 2012...

In the past, death was a family and community affair, but today it is institutional and entrusted to healthcare personnel. Thanks to a questionnaire on their feelings about prehospitalisation deaths, the experience and training needs for healthcare personnel at a mobile emergency and intensive care service were analysed. The majority of these professionals had been confronted with difficulties when faced with prehospitalisation deaths. There is little understanding of religious rites, even though this is an important point in dealing with the situation...

We report the case of a 57-year-old woman found at home who received an ECG after having recovered from a seizure, without any clinical cardiac anomaly. The ECG revealed an elevation of the ST segment from the V1 to V5 leads and negative T waves from V1 to V5 leads. At her hospital admission, the emergency care unit (ECU) nurse performed another ECG. It no longer showed any repolarisation anomaly. However, the ECU nurse had put the precordial electrodes 3 cm too low, probably due to the patient's voluminous breasts...

Unraveling the brain control of metabolism may generate opportunities to discover novel precision medicines for obesity and diabetes. In this issue of Neuron, Liu et al. (2017) identify a novel glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 receptor-dependent signaling process that exerts anorexigenic action via the regulation of AMPA receptor subunit composition in the hypothalamus.

The objective of this work is to describe a segmental maxillary distraction osteogenesis (SDO) with segmental Lefort I with an inexpensive device.Four patients who presented severe class III and maxillary hypoplasia due to cleft lip and palate sequel were treated. A SDO was performed using a dental-anchored Hyrax device, achieving enlargement of the upper jaw without altering speech, with adequate and stable occlusion. Dental implants in a new formed bone were installed.The authors can conclude that SDO is a good treatment alternative for patients with maxillary hypoplasia...

PURPOSE: The distinction between physiologic (innocent) and pathologic (organic) heart murmurs is not always easy in routine practice, leading too often to unnecessary cardiology referrals and expensive investigations. We aimed to test the hypothesis that the complete disappearance of murmur on standing can exclude cardiac disease in children. METHODS: From January 2014 to January 2015, we prospectively included 194 consecutive children aged 2 to 18 years who were referred for heart murmur evaluation to pediatric cardiologists at 2 French medical centers...

REVIEW
Kevin C Lee, Michael Perrino
A major objective of orthognatic surgery is the aesthetic outcome. Treatments only correcting for dentoskeletal deformities are not sufficient for optimal facial results because undesirable soft tissue changes may accompany skeletal manipulations. The primary objective of this study was to investigate alar base width (ABW) changes a minimum of 6 months following surgically-assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE). The following electronic databases and citation indices were searched: PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus, Web of Science, Embase, and Virtual Health Library...

BACKGROUND: Orthognathic surgery is associated with considerable swelling and neurosensory disturbances. Serious swelling can lead to great physical and psychological strain. A randomized, prospective, controlled clinical trial was realized in order to evaluate the effect of a preoperative intravenous dexamethasone injection of 40 mg on postoperative swelling and neurosensory disturbances after orthognathic surgery. METHODS: Thirty-eight patients (27 male and 11 female) patients, all with the indication for an orthognathic surgery, were enrolled in this study (mean age: 27...

Schizophrenia is a devastating mental disease with an apparent disruption in the highly associative default mode network (DMN). Interplay between this canonical network and others probably contributes to goal-directed behavior so its disturbance is a candidate neural fingerprint underlying schizophrenia psychopathology. Previous research has reported both hyperconnectivity and hypoconnectivity within the DMN, and both increased and decreased DMN coupling with the multimodal saliency network (SN) and dorsal attention network (DAN)...

Riwal Lefort, Rémi Emmetière, Sabrina Bourmani, Gaultier Real, Angélique Drémeau
This paper deals with the loss of coherence in underwater direction-of-arrival estimation. The coherence loss, which typically arises from dynamical ocean fluctuations and unknown environmental parameters, may take the form of a multiplicative colored random noise applied to the measured acoustic signal. This specific multiplicative noise needs to be addressed with methodological developments. This paper proposes a weighting process that locally mitigates the effects of the coherence loss. More specially, a set of coherent sub-antennas is designed from the so-called Mutual Coherence Function (MCF)...

Background: Prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Candida spp. (PVE-C) is rare and devastating, with international guidelines based on expert recommendations consisting in the combination of surgery and subsequent azole treatment. Methods: PVE-C collected in Spain and France between 2001 and 2015 were retrospectively analyzed with a focus on management and outcome. Results: Forty-six cases were followed up for a median of 9 months. Twenty-two (48%) patients had a past history of endocarditis; 30 (65%) cases were nosocomial or healthcare-related, 9 (20%) patients were intravenous drug users...
