A 52-year-old woman was admitted with a large intraabdominal mass. (123)I- metaiodobenzylguanidine ((123)I-MIBG) scintigraphy revealed considerable (123)I-MIBG accumulation by the mass that was compatible with a diagnosis of paraganglioma. However, a spindle cell tumor that was identified using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration before surgery was positive for CD117. The surgically resected mass was confirmed as a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Although the mechanism of (123)I-MIBG uptake by GIST has not been elucidated, GIST should be included in the differential diagnosis of intra-abdominal tumor with (123)I-MIBG uptake...

REVIEW
Katarzyna Czarnecka-Kujawa, Kazuhiro Yasufuku
This review provides an update on the current role of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and mediastinoscopy (Med) in assessment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Invasive mediastinal lymph node (LN) staging is the major application for both of these techniques. Up until recently, Med was the gold standard for invasive mediastinal LN staging in NSCLC. However, EBUS-TBNA has shown to be equivalent, and in some studies better than Med for invasive staging of lung cancer...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy, safety, and incidence of complications between fiber-optic bronchoscopy-guided percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (FOB-PDT) and ultrasound-guided percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (US-PDT) and to determine whether US-PDT is a viable alternative to FOB-PDT. METHODS: This randomized prospective study was carried out in 80 patients who were randomly divided into US-PDT and FOB-PDT groups. Demographic data and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II), procedure duration, hemorrhage status, complications, procedure difficulty, displacement of entry location after US, and hemodynamic data were evaluated in both groups...

BACKGROUND: Portal hypertension is necessary for the development of most clinical complications of cirrhosis. We recently reported a novel, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided technique for direct portal pressure measurements using a digital pressure wire. AIMS: The aims of this study were to (1) evaluate safety in an animal survival model and (2) compare direct portal vein (PV) versus transhepatic access of a first-order venule. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Yorkshire pigs, weighing 40-55 kg...

PURPOSE: Thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) may be an alternative to thoracic epidural analgesia. A detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the TPV-space (TPVS), content and adnexa is essential in understanding the clinical consequences of TPVB. The exploration of the posterior TPVS accessibility in this study allows (1) determination of the anatomical boundaries, content and adnexa, (2) description of an ultrasound-guided spread of low and high viscous liquid. METHODS: In two formalin-fixed specimens, stratification of the several layers and the 3D-architecture of the TPVS were dissected, observed and photographed...

Maternal malnutrition during pregnancy impacts fetal growth, with developmental consequences that extend to later life outcomes. In underdeveloped countries, this malnutrition typically takes the form of poor dietary protein content and quality, even if adequate calories are consumed. Here, we report the establishment of a nonhuman primate model of gestational protein restriction (PR) in order to understand how placental function and pregnancy outcomes are affected by protein deficiency. Rhesus macaques were assigned to either a control diet containing 26% protein or switched to a 13% PR diet prior to conception and maintained on this PR diet throughout pregnancy...

AIM: To evaluate the safety and utility of ultrasonography as a tool to confirm central venous catheter (CVC) position and to exclude insertion-related pneumothorax in place of chest radiography (CXR) in a tertiary medical intensive care unit (ICU). METHODS: We randomized 60 consecutive medical ICU patients to conventional or ultrasound groups for CVC placement. Both groups had CVCs inserted under ultrasound guidance. The intervention group underwent real-time transthoracic echocardiography to assist in catheter positioning and chest ultrasonography for exclusion of pneumothorax...

The aims of the present study was to develop and describe a transvaginal ultrasound-guided biopsy method for luteal tissue in the porcine and to evaluate the effects of the method on the reproductive tract, ovarian status and pregnancy status. Biopsies were performed in four multiparous sows on Days 9 and 15 of three consecutive oestrous cycles; the size and histological composition of the samples obtained were evaluated and the reproductive tract of the sows was monitored. Furthermore, biopsies were performed in 26 multiparous sows on Days 10 and 13 after insemination, and the pregnancy rate, gestation length and subsequent litter size were evaluated...

Objective: To investigate the feasibility of trans-catheter closure of multiple atrial septal defects (ASD) monitored by trans-thoracic echocardiography (TTE) under the guidance of 3D printing heart model. Methods: Between April and August 2016, a total of 21 patients (8 male and 13 female) with multiple ASD in Fuwai Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences underwent CT scan and 3-dimensional echocardiography for heart disease model produced by 3D printing technique. The best occlusion program was determined through the simulation test on the model...

Isolated mediastinal adenopathy is a diagnostic challenge in the paediatric population, often requiring invasive surgical procedures for diagnosis. We describe a novel minimally invasive modality in a 20 month toddler-transesophageal bronchoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-B-FNA). This is the youngest reported use of this modality, highlighting feasibility, technical issues, safety, and rapid diagnosis leading to expedited treatment.

Objective Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) - one of the most frequently recommended methods for treating great saphenous vein incompetence - is easy and inexpensive. However, it achieves a lower occlusion rate compared to endovenous thermal ablation. The application of UGFS to pre-terminal great saphenous vein interruption, eliminating the saphenous stem wash out effect, enhances the short-term occlusion rate. This study explores the results of this technique at 12 months. Method Thirty great saphenous veins (28 patients) with junction incompetence, with calibres >6 mm and >30 cm reflux stem length were submitted to echo-guided pre-terminal great saphenous vein interruption and foam great saphenous vein occlusion...

INTRODUCTION: EBUS is a well established minimally invasive diagnostic tool for mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy. The novel ViziShot Flex 19G needle (Olympus Respiratory America, Redmond, WA, USA) was introduced in 2015 in order to improve loaded scope flexion and to obtain larger tissue samples for analysis. The aims of this study were to assess diagnostic yield of Flex 19G needles and to present endoscopist's feedback about the endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA)...

Pancreatic lymphangiomas are rare, but benign neoplasms. Historically, the diagnoses in various case reports were mostly made after surgical resection. There are emerging data concerning the utility of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) to differentiate it from more sinister pancreatic cystic neoplasms. A confident preoperative diagnosis with EUS-FNA is crucial to avoid unnecessary workup or surgery, especially for small and asymptomatic lesions. Here, we present a rare case of asymptomatic pancreatic lymphangioma which was diagnosed with EUS-FNA...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) has been established as a safe and accurate method for diagnosing and staging intra-abdominal mass. However, few studies investigated its feasibility, efficacy, and safety for targeting liver mass. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of EUS-FNA in patients with liver masses including the right lobe. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The technical feasibility, safety, and diagnostic yield were determined in 47 patients (30 in the left lobe and 17 in the right lobe) presenting with liver masses between September 2010 and February 2016...
