INTRODUCTION: Dysembryoplastic neuroectodermal tumor (DNT) is a rare neoplasm. Though the pathology is commonly considered benign, there have been various reports documenting rapid growth, recurrence/ progression, sudden death, and malignant transformation. Most studies have addressed outcomes regarding seizure control, but limited data exist regarding incidence and survival. Consequently, we explore the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to explore the epidemiology of DNT...

Surgeons routinely perform surgery with noisy, sub-threshold, or obscured visual and haptic feedback, either due to the necessary surgical approach, or because the systems on which they are operating are exceedingly delicate. Technological solutions incorporating haptic feedback augmentation have been proposed to address these difficulties, but the consequences for motor control have not been directly investigated and quantified. In this paper, we present two isometric force generation tasks performed with a hand-held robotic tool that provides in-situ augmentation of force sensation...

Synchronous bilateral testis cancer (SBTC) is a rare event. It represents only 0.5-1% of all new cases of testicular cancer. Patients with this disease require careful management for psychological, oncological, and medical problems. We performed a PubMed search for all series that reported SBTC. We considered only articles in English, reporting on more than three cases. We also performed an analysis of the reported evidence regarding testosterone replacement and surgical treatment. We found 10 studies satisfying inclusion criteria for a total of 73 patients...

Studies of the last twenty years on the motor and premotor cortices of primates demonstrated that the motor system is involved in the control and initiation of movements, and in higher cognitive processes, such as action understanding, imitation, and empathy. Mirror neurons are only one example of such theoretical shift. Their properties demonstrate that motor and sensory processing are coupled in the brain. Such knowledge has been also central for designing new neurorehabilitative therapies for patients suffering from brain injuries and consequent motor deficits...

INTRODUCTION: Reporting guidelines were established to improve the quality of scientific papers. Currently, the most common are CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials), STROBE (Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology) and CARE (Clinical Consensus-based Case Reporting Guideline). Spin can be defined as (un)intentionally biased interpretation of results aimed at convincing readers of a positive benefit of any given intervention. The aim of the study was to evaluate the adherence of papers published in Perspectives in Surgery to CONSORT, STROBE or CARE and to identify the frequency of spin...

Background Distal radius fractures are very common and an increased incidence of 50% is estimated by 2030. Therefore, both operative and postsurgical treatment remains pertinent. Main aim in treating intra-articular fractures is to restore the articular surface by internal fixation and early mobilization (EM). Questions/Purposes The purpose of this study was to compare functional results between EM immediately after surgery and 5 weeks of immobilization (IM). Patients and Methods In a randomized prospective study, 30 patients with an isolated distal radius fracture were treated by open reduction and internal fixation using a single volar locking plate excluding bone graft...
