Combined hepatocellular‐cholangiocarcinoma with angiosarcomatoid change: A case report with immunohistochemical study
Sarcomatoid combined hepatocellular‐cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC‐CCA) is a rare condition, with only 16 cases reported to date; however, there have been no reports of hepatic sarcomatoid carcinoma with angiosarcomatous features. Here, we report a rare case of cHCC‐CCA with angiosarcomatoid changes in a 77‐year‐old man. The tumor was biphasic with malignant epithelial and mesenchymal components. Histologically, the epithelial component was concordant with classical type cHCC‐CCA. The mesenchymal component...

Intravascular large B‐cell lymphoma involving large blood vessels, three autopsy cases
Although intravascular large B‐cell lymphoma (IVLBCL) is an extranodal lymphoma characterized by the selective growth of lymphoma cells within the lumina of small vessels, we here report three autopsy cases of IVLBCL characterized by the proliferation within large blood vessels. These three cases were diagnosed as IVLBCL of the bone marrow or skin biopsy. Two cases died suddenly before treatment, whereas the other died during treatment. Autopsies showed a large embolus of dense lymphoma cells extending...

Whey Protein Complexes with Green Tea Polyphenols: Antimicrobial, Osteoblast-Stimulatory, and Antioxidant Activities
Polyphenols are known for their antimicrobial activity, whilst both polyphenols and the globular protein β-lactoglobulin (bLG) are suggested to have antioxidant properties and promote cell proliferation. These are potentially useful properties for a tissue-engineered construct, though it is unknown if they are retained when both compounds are used in combination. In this study, a range of different microbes and an osteoblast-like cell line (human fetal osteoblast, hFOB) were used to assess the combined...

Two Web Resources Linking Major Human Embryology Collections Worldwide
Human embryology is a core subject for medicine and current research. While animal models of development now have significant online resources available, the vast majority of human embryonic material is locked up in historic collections. When accessed today, these collections are still contributing to our understanding of human development. This paper describes two online resources for studying human development that are unlocking these invaluable collections and providing related human developmental...

The prevalence and surgical outcomes of Hurthle cell lesions in FNAs of the thyroid: A multi‐institutional study in 6 Asian countries
Background Hurthle cell‐rich nodules (HCNs) encompass non‐neoplastic to malignant lesions. There is paucity of literature on the frequency distribution of HCNs among Bethesda categories, histologic follow‐up, risk of malignancy (ROM), and risk of neoplasia (RON). The objective of this retrospective, multi‐institutional study was to determine the prevalence of the cytologic diagnostic category and surgical outcomes of patients with HCN.

Negative predictive value and sensitivity of urine cytology prior to implementation of The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology
Background Urinary tract cytology (UTCy) is used for screening urothelial carcinoma (UC) and it must have a high negative predictive value (NPV) to be an effective test. To the authors' knowledge, the literature regarding the NPV of UTCy provides little information regarding the risk of malignancy, especially for patients with high‐grade urothelial carcinoma (HGUC). Methods Patients with negative UTCy specimens were identified in the pathology files at the study institution for the years 2012...

Microvascular reconstruction and dental rehabilitation of benign severely atrophic jaws and defects of the alveolar ridge: our philosophy in 2019
We deal regularly with patients who present with severe atrophy of the jaws, compromised soft tissue, or penetrating defects of the alveolar ridge that are not the result of malignant disease. For these patients we use microvascular bony flaps together with dental implants and implant-supported prostheses. The purpose of this retrospective study was to present our current management and the lessons we have learned over a 16-year period while treating 86 patients for these indications with 87 microvascular...

Skeletal stability in orthognathic surgery with the surgery first approach: a systematic review
The surgery first approach (SFA) is a therapeutic strategy used in orthognathic surgery that is constantly evolving. With this approach, the pre-surgical orthodontic treatment can be eliminated, the maxilla and the mandible are surgically repositioned into the desired position, and the therapy is ended with a short orthodontic phase. Several studies have reported that the SFA is an acceptable approach, but postoperative stability is unclear. In this study, a systematic review on the SFA was performed.

The role of autophagy in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease
Abstract Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease leading to destruction of periodontal tissues. As a local inflammation, periodontopathic bacterium, pro‐inflammatory mediators and local immune response play pivotal role in the progress of periodontal disease. Besides, cigarette smoke has long been associated with periodontal disease and tooth loss. Autophagy is an intracellular degradation process highly conserved from yeast to humans. As a lysosomal degradation pathway of self‐digestion,...
