BACKGROUND: Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has become an accepted treatment for patients with achalasia. Despite its excellent efficacy rate of greater than 80%, a small percentage of patients remain symptomatic postprocedure. Limited data exist as to the best management for recurrence of symptoms after POEM. We present the first international, multicenter experience on the efficacy and safety of a repeat POEM in the management of achalasia. METHODS: Patients who underwent a redo POEM from 15 centers in 9 countries were included in a dedicated registry...

Multiple primary tumors is defined as the occurrence of two or more primary lesions, benign or malignant, where each tumor occur in separate sites and is neither an extension, recurrence, nor metastasis [1]. The occurrence of multiple primary tumors is extremely rare with an incidence of less than 4 % [2] of the total tumor cases. We present a case of synchronous heart, ovaries, and kidney tumors in a 63-year-old Caucasian female patient whom primarily attended our institution for a hypertension evaluation...

Improvements in acute burn care have enabled patients to survive massive burns that would have once been fatal. Now up to 70% of patients develop hypertrophic scars after burns. The functional and psychosocial sequelae remain a major rehabilitative challenge, decreasing quality of life and delaying reintegration into society. Approaches to optimise healing potential of burn wounds use targeted wound care and surgery to minimise the development of hypertrophic scarring. Such approaches often fail, and modulation of the established scar is continued although the optimal indication, timing, and combination of therapies have yet to be established...

Cervical cancer (CC) incidence and mortality rates are increased, and CC screening rates are low among Appalachian Ohio women. Mailing human papillomavirus (HPV) self-tests to women to complete at home is a potential new strategy to engage women in CC screening.We aimed to gain insights into the perceived acceptability of mailed HPV self-tests. We conducted focus groups (August 2014-January 2015) among providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses) and women in Appalachian Ohio. Providers (n = 28) and women (n = 15; age range: 32-62 years) reported general acceptance of HPV self-tests, however, for different reasons...

OBJECTIVE: There have been suggestions that patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have a better outcome when treated in high-volume centers. Much of the published literature on the subject is limited by an inability to control for severity of SAH. METHODS: This is a nationwide retrospective cohort analysis using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS). The NIS Subarachnoid Severity Scale was used to adjust for severity of SAH in multivariate logistic regression modeling...

Obtaining reliable estimates of vertical groundwater flows remains a challenge but is of critical importance to the management of groundwater resources. When large scale land clearing or groundwater extraction occurs, methods based on water table fluctuations or water chemistry are unreliable. As an alternative, a number of methods based on temperature-depth (T-z) profiles are available to provide vertical groundwater flow estimates from which recharge rates may be calculated. However, methods that invoke steady state assumptions have been shown to be inappropriate for sites that have experienced land surface warming...

INTRODUCTION: In the era of minimally-invasive surgery, urinary incontinence (UI) after radical prostatectomy (RP) still represents a troublesome issue for a considerable rate of patients. Factors associated with the risk of post-RP UI, need to be carefully assessed throughout the overall clinical management process thus including the pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative setting. AREAS COVERED: This review analyses current published evidences regarding clinical and surgical aspects associated with urinary continence (UC) recovery after RP...

Since 1968, when Baxter and Shires developed the Parkland formula, little progress has been made in the field of fluid therapy for burn resuscitation, despite advances in haemodynamic monitoring, establishment of the 'goal-directed therapy' concept, and the development of new colloid and crystalloid solutions. Burn patients receive a larger amount of fluids in the first hours than any other trauma patients. Initial resuscitation is based on crystalloids because of the increased capillary permeability occurring during the first 24 h...

BACKGROUND: Establishing postnatal nutrition delivery is challenging in neonates with immature sucking and swallowing ability. Enteral feeding is the gold standard for such patients, but their small size and fragility present challenges in nasogastric (NG) feeding tube placement. Feeding tubes are typically placed with x-ray guidance, which provides minimal soft tissue contrast and exposes the baby to ionizing radiation. This research investigates magnetic resonance (MR) guidance of NG feeding tube placement in neonates to provide improved soft tissue visualization without ionizing radiation...

Focal therapy has settled as an alternative to radical treatment in selected cases of localized prostate cancer. The selection of patients who are candidates for focal therapy is based on imaging diagnosis relying on multiparametric MRI and image fusion techniques. Thanks to the oncological results and safety profiles of initial series, various energy sources have been developed over the last years. The availability of multiple types of energy sources for focal therapy, commits us to evaluate what type of energy would be the optimal depending on patient's profile and type of lesion...
