PET/CT-guided biopsy with respiratory motion correction: AbstractPurposeGiven the ability of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to localize malignancies in heterogeneous tumors and tumors that lack an X-ray computed tomography (CT) correlate, combined PET/CT-guided biopsy may improve the diagnostic yield of biopsies. However, PET and CT images are naturally susceptible to problems due to respiratory motion, leading to imprecise tumor localization and shape distortion. To facilitate PET/CT-guided...

Evolutionary processes of melanomas from giant congenital melanocytic nevi
Evolutionary processes of melanomas from giant congenital melanocytic nevi: AbstractMelanoma can develop in a congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN). In fact, a large CMN is associated with a high risk of developing melanoma. Although melanomas arising from CMNs are thought to have a pathogenesis distinct from conventional melanomas, no studies have been conducted on the evolution or tumor heterogeneity of CMN melanomas. We applied multi‐region whole‐exome sequencing to investigate the clonal nature...

Real‐world experiences of apremilast in clinics for Japanese patients with psoriasis
Real‐world experiences of apremilast in clinics for Japanese patients with psoriasis: AbstractPsoriasis, though not an immediately life‐threatening disorder, still lowers quality of life and disrupts daily functions. While many treatments for psoriasis exist, few are convenient and safe long term; even if sufficiently effective, treatments themselves often decrease quality of life and make long‐term treatment adherence difficult.

However, because it only provides limited anatomical information, cross-correlation of MBI findings with conventional breast imaging modalities such as full field digital mammography can be challenging. We report a case of a positive MBI study in a supplemental screening setting,...

Gut microbiota shape 'inflamm-ageing cytokines and account for age-dependent decline in DNA damage repair
Gut microbiota shape 'inflamm-ageing cytokines and account for age-dependent decline in DNA damage repair: ObjectiveFailing to properly repair damaged DNA drives the ageing process. Furthermore, age-related inflammation contributes to the manifestation of ageing. Recently, we demonstrated that the efficiency of repair of diethylnitrosamine (DEN)-induced double-strand breaks (DSBs) rapidly declines with age. We therefore hypothesised that with age, the decline in DNA damage repair stems from age-related...

The Dermal Cage, Inferiorly Based Dermal Flap Technique for Breast Reconstruction after Mastectomy
The "Dermal Cage"- Inferiorly Based Dermal Flap Technique for Breast Reconstruction after Mastectomy: "Direct to implant", "one stage" or "immediate" breast reconstruction procedures have became extremely popular in last decade. The additional task of covering the lower pole of the prosthetic implant for stability can be achieved by one of two principle methods. One is the use of ADM (acellular dermal matrix) or alternatively by the use of autologous dermis (inferiorly based dermal flap). In 2013...

An Assessment of Histological Margins and Recurrence of Completely excised Cutaneous SCC
An Assessment of Histological Margins and Recurrence of Completely excised Cutaneous SCC: There is a paucity of data relating histological margins of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and local recurrence. Retrospective data was collected for 721 patients with cSCC treated at Queen Victoria Hospital, UK and followed up for five years. The local recurrence rate was 6.1%, the mean time to recurrence was 12.61 months and 93% of recurrences occurred within two years. 66% of recurrences had a deep...

Ablative Treatment of Pancreatic Cystic Lesions
An Updated Review on Ablative Treatment of Pancreatic Cystic Lesions: Pancreatic cysts are common and often incidentally detected on abdominal imaging. Their prevalence in asymptomatic individuals depends on the screening modality used. The incidence of these lesions increases with age and may be detected in nearly half of elderly patients undergoing high-resolution MRI.Some, but not all, pancreas cysts have malignant potential. The overall risk is small but induces significant anxiety for the patient....

Exploring the relation between patients' resilience and quality of life after treatment for cancer of the head and neck: Resilience, which is a measure of a patient's ability to recover from a traumatic event, varies among the general population, and previous studies have suggested that it has an important influence on a patient's quality of life. We conducted a study of patients treated for cancer of the head and neck to investigate the relation between scores for resilience and quality of life...

A Rhombic Plate for transoral endoscopically-assisted osteosynthesis of fractures of the condylar neck
Clinical experience and results with a Rhombic Plate for transoral endoscopically-assisted osteosynthesis of fractures of the condylar neck: The intraoral approach is favoured by many patients and surgeons for the treatment of fractures of the condylar neck, but the limited space offered by this approach can make positioning and fixation of the osteosynthesis plate difficult. A rhombic-shaped plate was designed specifically for use with the intraoral approach, and introduced into our clinical practice...

The stair step genioplasty: a modification of the oblique sagittal sliding genioplasty
The stair step genioplasty: a modification of the oblique sagittal sliding genioplasty: The genioplasty has been a versatile procedure in the repertoire of a maxillofacial surgeon ever since it was conceptualised by Trauner and Obwegeser in 1957.1 In most situations, a chin procedure improves the overall aesthetic profile and renders a better definition to the jaw line, which explains the evolution of various modifications. We introduce a modification to the existing oblique sagittal sliding genioplasty2...

Sucrose isomers as alternative sweeteners: properties, production, and applications
Sucrose isomers as alternative sweeteners: properties, production, and applications: AbstractIn the daily diet, sweeteners play an indispensable role. Among them, sucrose, a widely occurring disaccharide in nature, is a commonly used sweetener. However, the intake of sucrose can cause a rapid increase in blood glucose, which leads to a number of health problems. Therefore, there is an urgent need for possible alternatives to sucrose. Currently, four naturally occurring sucrose isomers, trehalulose,...
