Rehabilitation of the patients presenting with benign and tumour-like diseases of the larynx (BLT) is currently a serious challenge for modern otorhinolaryngology in view of the high prevalence of this pathology. Dysphonia is a leading clinical symptom of the diseases that considerably deteriorates the quality of life of the patients. Certain benign conditions of the larynx exhibit a tendency toward malignization. The treatment of the patients presenting with benign and tumour-like diseases of the larynx requires a combined approach including the surgical, therapeutic, and phonopedic modalities for the rehabilitation of the vocal function...

The combination of a thorough physical exam and imaging with either MRI or pelvic ultrasound are important in pre-operative planning for deep infiltrating endometriosis. Nevertheless, the 2-dimensional rendering of the pathology by imaging does not always accurately represent intra-operative findings. An in-depth topographical relationship and extent of surrounding tissue invasion can be better appreciated from 3-dimensional modeling. A 49 year old patient with history of endometriosis and persistent pain underwent pre-operative imaging with MRI that was consistent with infiltrating endometriosis...

BACKGROUND: Accurate differentiation of pancreatic cystic lesions is important for pancreatic cancer early detection and prevention as well as avoidance of unnecessary surgical intervention. Serous cystic neoplasms (SCN) have no malignant potential, but may mimic premalignant mucinous cystic lesions: mucinous cystic neoplasm (MCN) and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN). We recently identified vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A as a novel pancreatic fluid biomarker for SCN...

In order to access and resect the acetabular rim, arthroscopic acetabuloplasty was described with labral detachment. When the chondrolabral junction remains intact, acetabuloplasty and labral refixation can be performed maintaining an unharmed labrum. We aimed to evaluate the outcome of a group of patients treated with arthroscopic acetabuloplasty without labral detachment. During the study period, we retrospectively analysed 44 patients with pincer-type o combined impingement and an intact chondroblabral junction, with an average follow-up of 32 months (range: 27-38)...

Echinococcus granulosus (EG) is a neglected pathology that causes cystic echinococcosis and primarily affects the liver and lung. EG infects ~6 million worldwide and mortality is quoted as 2-4% per 100 000 inhabitants. The increase in human traffic from endemic regions demands clinician's awareness. Dogs are the most common definitive host for the EG tapeworm. Human infection requires ingestion of fecal parasitic eggs. Primary infection causes cysts to appear in affected organs, rupture of which leads to secondary infection...

BACKGROUND: Pathological fracture of the proximal femur is a main cause of cancer patients losing their ability to walk. Although both osteosynthetic devices (predominantly intramedullary nails) and prosthetic replacement have been widely performed for treatment, controversies exist regarding which procedure should be used for the various conditions. In order to decide the eligibility criteria of a planned randomized prospective study about the treatment of pathological fractures of the proximal femur, we assessed the factors affecting the selection of operative procedures using questionnaires sent to the members of the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Study Group (BSTTSG) of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG)...
