Introduction: Contrast computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are widely used due to its image quality and ability to study pancreatic and peripancreatic morphology. The understanding of the various subtypes of the disease and identification of possible complications requires a familiarity with the terminology, which allows effective communication between the different members of the multidisciplinary team. Aim: Demonstrate the terminology and parameters to identify the different classifications and findings of the disease based on the international consensus for acute pancreatitis ( Atlanta Classification 2012)...

One of the most frequent reasons for failure during the maxillary sinus floor lift operation is connected to the possibility of a rupture of the Schneiderian membrane which, if lacerated, cannot perform the function of graft containment. In order to reduce the incidence of complications it is necessary to cut the hard tissue with extreme accuracy and as little trauma as possible, while saving the soft tissue. The precision of pre-operation measures obtained through endoral x-rays, dental-scans and cone-beam CT allows us to approach and cut with delicacy the sinus cortical floor...

Pressure infusion devices are used in clinical practice to apply large volumes of fluid over a short period of time. Although air infusion is a major complication, they have limited capability to detect and remove air during pressure infusion. In this investigation, we tested the air elimination capabilities of the Fluido(®) (The Surgical Company), Level 1(®) (Level 1 Technologies Inc.) and Ranger(®) (Augustine Medical GmbH) pressure infusion devices. Measurements were undertaken with a crystalloid solution during an infusion flow of 100, 200, 400 and 800 ml...

In this paper, we present a mathematical model, which mimics the bronchial resistances of human's lung in an expiratory act. The model is implemented in Matlab. The inputs that are used in this model derive from spirometry test. This model is able to study a physiologic condition, a pathologic one and the patient's follow up after drug treatment. We split our study into two parts. The first one focuses the analysis on the gas fluido dynamic inside of the respiratory pathways. The second part takes care of the pressure equilibrium in the exchange zone...

The fluid warming capabilities of the Bair Hugger, Hotline, Standard Ranger and Fluido devices were evaluated in the laboratory with gravity flow via a 14G cannula (1 m head of fluid) and with the fluid bag pressurised to 300 mmHg. The resulting flows (70-450 ml.min(-1)) were recorded. At a room temperature of 22 degrees C, no device warmed the fluid to 37 degrees C. However, the Standard Ranger with gravity flow and the Fluido with both gravity and pressurised flow achieved 35 degrees C, whereas the Bair Hugger and Hotline with both gravity and pressurised flow, and the Standard Ranger with pressurised flow, achieved only 24-31 degrees C...

UNLABELLED: Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) prevents in vitro gallbladder (GB) muscle damage caused by acute cholecystitis and reduces risk of biliary pain and complications in gallstone (GS) patients. These effects could be partially explained by the improved GB bile turnover. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of short-term UDCA treatment on GB motility and bile turnover. METHODS: Ultrasonographic (US) assessment of GB volumes was performed in 16 GS patients, in the postprandial phase, for 90 min with a time sampling of 1 min, before and after 30 days of UDCA (10 mg kg(-1) die(-1)) or placebo, randomly assigned...

PURPOSE: We describe the successful repair of a large and complex urethral diverticulum in a female by transvaginal approach. Epidemiology, diagnostic methods, treatments and complications of female urethral diverticula are reviewed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 35-year-old woman with a history of postvoid dribbling, dyspareunia and recurrent urinary tract infections for 4 months was referred. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated two fluido-filled collections in the pelvis of 3...

PURPOSE: To propose a new method for the assessment of the fluidodynamic behaviour of angiographic contrast agents. The method enables measurement of the spatial distribution and time dependence of the contrast agent along a pseudo-vessel on images obtained with an X-ray image intensifier. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A particular phantom was devised consisting of a plexiglas box with an insert into which a latex tube with a 0.4 cm in diameter was placed in order to simulate the tortuous flow of a blood vessel...
