OBJECTIVES: To assess whether level of agreement among experts in distinguishing between septate and normal/arcuate uterus using subjective judgments from review of coronal view from three-dimensional ultrasound. We also aim to determine the inter-observer reliability and diagnostic test accuracy of three measurements suggested by recent guidelines, using the most voted option by experts (CUME - Congenital Uterine Malformation by Experts) as a reference standard. METHODS: Images of the coronal plane of the uterus from 100 women with suspected fundal internal indentation were anonymized and submitted to 15 experts (5 clinicians, 5 surgeons and 5 sonologists)...

Glycogen plays an important role in glucose and energy homeostasis at cellular and organismal levels. In glycogen synthesis, glycogen synthase (GS) is a rate-limiting enzyme catalysing the addition of α-1,4-linked glucose units from (UDP)(3)-glucose to a nascent glycogen chain using glycogenin (GN) as a primer. While studies on mammalian liver GS (GYS2) are numerous, enzymes from crustaceans, which also use glycogen and glucose as their main energy source, have received less attention. In the present study, we amplified full-length GS cDNA from Eriocheir sinensis...

STUDY QUESTION: Does progesterone in human follicular fluid (hFF) activate CatSper and do other components of hFF modulate this effect and/or contribute separately to hFF-induced Ca2+ signaling? SUMMARY ANSWER: hFF potently stimulates CatSper and increases [Ca2+]i, primarily due to high concentrations of progesterone, however, other components of hFF also contribute to [Ca2+]i signaling, including modulation of CatSper channel activity and inhibition of [Ca2+]i oscillations...

Molting is induced in decapod crustaceans via multiple leg autotomy (MLA) or eyestalk ablation (ESA). MLA removes five or more walking legs, which are regenerated and become functional appendages at ecdysis. ESA eliminates the primary source of molt-inhibiting hormone (MIH) and crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH), which suppress the production of molting hormones (ecdysteroids) from the molting gland or Y-organ (YO). Both MLA and ESA are effective methods for molt induction in Gecarcinus lateralis. However, some G...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS:  Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is gaining traction as a minimally invasive bariatric treatment. Concern that the learning curve may be slow, even among those proficient in endoscopic suturing, is a barrier to widespread implementation of the procedure. Therefore, we aimed to define the learning curve for ESG in a single endoscopist experienced in endoscopic suturing who participated in a 1-day ESG training program. PATIENTS AND METHODS:  Consecutive patients who underwent ESG between February 2016 and November 2016 were included...

OBJECTIVES: Early synthetic gadolinium enhancement (ESGE) imaging from post-contrast T1 mapping after adenosine stress-perfusion cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) was compared to conventional late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging for assessing myocardial scar. METHODS: Two hundred fourteen consecutive patients suspected of myocardial ischaemia were referred for stress-perfusion CMR. Myocardial infarct volume was quantified on a per-subsegment basis in both synthetic (2-3 min post-gadolinium) and conventional (9 min post-gadolinium) images by two independent observers...

This research evaluated the influence of Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) on lesions of the facial nerve repaired with the end-to-side technique or coaptation with a new heterologous fibrin sealant. Thirty-two Wistar rats were separated into 5 groups: Control group (CG), where the buccal branch of the facial nerve was collected; Experimental Suture Group (ESG) and Experimental Fibrin Group (EFG), in which the buccal branch was end-to-side sutured to the zygomatic branch on the right side of the face or coaptated with fibrin sealant on the left side; Experimental Suture Laser Group (ESLG) and Experimental Fibrin Laser Group (EFLG), in which the same procedures were performed as the ESG and EFG, associated with PBMT (wavelength of 830nm, energy density 6...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a novel, incisionless technique for gastric volume reduction to promote weight loss. Our aim was to describe the learning curve for performing ESG using a prospective case series. METHODS: Using a prospective case series design, we analyzed the first 128 consecutive patients at a tertiary care academic medical center who underwent ESG performed by a single operator from August 2013 to December 2016. Efficiency (refining performance to decrease procedure time) and mastery (absence of outliers) for performing ESG was evaluated by using a penalized basis-spline regression and cumulative sum analysis...

Great debate exists in the initial acute management of large bowel obstruction from obstructing left colon carcinoma. While endoscopic stenting is well established as the first approach in the setting of palliative care of patients with advanced metastatic disease as well as a bridge to elective surgery in elderly patients who have an increased risk of postoperative mortality (age >70 years and/or ASA status ≥3), controversies exist regarding oncological safety and long-term outcomes of endoscopic colonic stenting in younger patients and ESGE Guidelines do not recommend SEMS placement in patients <70 and fit for curative surgery...

I thank R. Cabadas and J. Álvarez-Escudero (1). 1. Apologies accepted. 2. The statistical significance of the difference in proportions seems doubtful. 3. Although these small studies do not allow us to confirm the safety of endoscopist-directed propofol sedation, they deserve a short comment as they represent the best available level of evidence (RCTs) and are also informative. 4. Hypoxemia, hypotension and bradycardia are frequent and have no clinical consequences in most cases. 5. The authors started this chapter by stating "scientific opinions must be carefully based" (3); 6...

Congenital malformations of the female genital tract are a group of miscellaneous deviations from normal anatomy with diverse spectrum. Mullerian anomalies are thought to be present in 0.5% of female population. Three quarter of women remain asymptomatic, the remaining quarter presents with a variety of symptoms including primary amenorrhea, cyclical pain, severe dysmenorrhea, pelvic mass, ectopic pregnancy, infertility and recurrent miscarriages. The American Fertility Society (AFS) classification has been the most widely used classification for categorizing these abnormalities...

Obesity is a growing pandemic across the world. Dietary restrictions and behavior modifications alone have a limited benefit. Bariatric surgery, despite being the current gold standard, has limited acceptance by patients due to cost and associated morbidity. In our review, we have discussed nine original studies describing endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG). A total of 172 subjects successfully underwent ESG. Of 65 subjects with follow up data, 95.4% (62/65) had intact gastric sleeve confirmed via esophagogastroduodenoscopy or oral contrast study at the end of study specific follow up interval (the longest being 6 months)...
