[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Angiotropic lymphoma is a rare large B-cell lymphoma involving the intravascular compartment without local tissue or vessel wall infiltration. CASE REPORT: A 48-year-old male presented with 8 months of progressive paraparesis and bowel and bladder incontinence. Initial cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed high protein, lymphocytic pleocytosis, high IgG synthesis, but no oligoclonal bands. Brain imaging at presentation was unrevealing. Electromyography revealed evidence of bilateral lumbosacral radiculoplexopathy [R>L]. A trial of intravenous solumedrol resulted in significant improvement in weakness. He had multiple hospital admissions for worsening lower extremity weakness, altered mental status, and new-onset upper extremity weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine revealed abnormal hyperintense T2 signal at T7-T8 level. Visual-evoked potentials revealed significant slowing of conduction in both optic nerves. Repeat electromyography showed a moderate to severe motor axonal polyneuropathy with secondary demyelination in the upper and lower extremities. A working diagnosis of encephalomyeloradiculoneuritis was made because of signs of polyradiculopathy, peripheral neuropathy and myelopathy. Patient had 3 trials of intravenous solumedrol with transient improvement in symptoms. The magnetic resonance imaging brain on his sixth hospital admission revealed multiple areas of restricted diffusion throughout the brain parenchyma. The patient underwent a right frontal lobe biopsy, which showed large CD-20 neoplastic lymphocytes within small arteries, veins, and capillaries with no extension to surrounding brain parenchyma. The findings were consistent with intravascular large B-cell lymphoma. CONCLUSION: Angiotropic lymphoma is a rare disease with frequent involvement of central nervous system and skin that can present with neurological involvement of both the peripheral and central nervous system.

[Ab] Abstract:AIM: To examine the correlation between the severity of venous calcifications and the clinical symptoms of phlebosclerotic colitis. METHODS: This was a retrospective study. The data, including the numbers of episodes of active disease, were collected from the medical records at Taipei Veterans General Hospital and Wei Gong Memorial Hospital in Taiwan between January 2005 and December 2014. All computed tomography images with or without contrast enhancement were obtained using a multiple detector computed tomography scanner. The scanning range reached from the dome of the diaphragm to the pelvis. The severity of calcification at the tributaries of the portal vein was measured using a four-grade scoring system of the calcification of phlebosclerotic colitis. The episodes of active disease were defined as symptoms of fever, abdominal pain, severe constipation, bowel obstruction, vomiting or diarrhea based on a review of the medical records. Spearman's correlation analysis was used to examine the correlation between the numbers of episodes of active disease and the severity of the calcification of the mesenteric veins. RESULTS: More than 3000 cases were reviewed from 2005 to 2014, and a total of 12 patients from Taipei Veterans General Hospital and Wei Gong Memorial Hospital were enrolled according to our inclusion criteria. Among these 12 patients, the mean age of the six males and the six females was 61.8 ± 11.5 years. All patients exhibited typical imaging characteristics, consisting of threadlike calcifications and colonic wall thickening in the standard radiographs and calcifications along the colonic and mesenteric vessels or associated with colonic wall thickening and adjacent fat stranding in the computed tomography images. The median score of the severity of the venous calcifications was 18 ± 13, and the median number of active disease episodes was 1 ± 1.75. Spearman's correlation analysis revealed that the number of episodes of active phlebosclerotic colitis disease significantly positively correlated with the severity of the calcification of the mesenteric veins (r = 0.619, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: The extent of mesenteric venous calcification is strongly associated with the number of episodes of active disease among patients with phlebosclerotic colitis.

[Ab] Abstract:Bio-inspired, stretchable, and transparent conducting electrodes (STCEs) are fabricated by Z. Zheng and co-workers in a solution-processed approach. On page 3444, natural veins of leaves are used as the templates and chemically modified by functional polymers for the deposition of metal thin films at ambient conditions. These transparent electrodes show excellent electro-optical properties at large strains, due to the large vein-free areas and flexible polygonal unit cells in the veins, ideal for flexible and stretchable optoelectronic devices.

[Ab] Abstract:Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) are rare lesions known to cause cyanosis due to abnormal communication between the pulmonary arteries and veins. They are commonly seen in association with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, congenital heart disease, hepatopulmonary syndrome, and portopulmonary shunting, but rarely in patients with dyskeratosis congenita (DC). We describe a patient previously diagnosed with DC confirmed to have microscopic PAVMs after bone marrow transplantation and discuss possible pathogenic mechanisms.

[Ti] Title:The role of non-enhanced angiography in toe tip transfer with small diameter pedicle.
[So] Source:Microsurgery;35(5):364-9, 2015 Jul.
[Is] ISSN:1098-2752
[Cp] Country of publication:United States
[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Toe tip transfer allows functional and esthetic reconstruction of the lost fingertip, but it is still uncommon because identification and dissection of donor and recipient veins can be challenging. Nonenhanced angiography (NEA) is a device that emits infrared light at a wavelength of 850 nm, which is exclusively absorbed by hemoglobin. The light penetrates the bones and other soft tissues, effectively visualizing veins in real time. The aim of this report is to present the experience on the preoperative use of nonenhanced angiography for visualization of donor and recipient veins in toe tip transfers in a series of patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Four cases of toe tip transfer and one case of free nail flap were performed for reconstruction of the tips of thumb and finger with preoperative examination using NEA. Patients' age ranged from 29 to 52 years old (average, 29.2 years old). Before the operation, the veins in the donor and recipient sites were marked using NEA, and the blood flow of the veins in the recipient site was confirmed. RESULTS: Pedicles in all transferred toe tips were less than 2 cm in length, with diameters smaller than 0.8 mm. The postoperative courses were uneventful, and all transferred toe tips survived completely, with satisfying functional and aesthetic results. CONCLUSIONS: NEA may facilitate venous dissection of the donor and the recipient sites, allowing safe and efficient toe tip transfer with a small pedicle. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

[Ti] Title:Markers of immunity and bacterial translocation in cirrhosis.
[So] Source:Dan Med J;62(7), 2015 Jul.
[Is] ISSN:2245-1919

[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:Bacterial translocation (BT), the migration of enteric bacteria to extraintestinal sites, is related to immune stimulation and haemodynamic changes in experimental cirrhosis. These changes may be highly relevant to patients with cirrhosis, where changes in the circulation cause serious complications. The optimal surrogate marker of BT in patients with cirrhosis, however, is a matter of controversy. In the first study, we investigated the relationship between markers of inflammation, haemodynamics and prognosis in 45 patients and 12 controls. We found high-sensitive C-reactive protein to be correlated to portal hypertension, a clinically relevant haemodynamic alteration, and appeared to be associated with increased mortality. To assess the consequences of BT on immunity, we developed an assay for the detection of bacterial DNA (bDNA), a novel marker of BT. Using the assay in the second study, in 38 patients with ascites, we found no association between bDNA and immunity, in contrast to some previous findings. In the final paper, exploring one possible translocation route, we hypothesized a difference in bDNA levels between the blood from the veins draining the gut on one hand and the liver on the other. Collecting samples during the insertion of a shunt between the two vessels in 28 patients, our finding did not suggest marked differences in bDNA, but conversely to expectations, suggested marked hepatic production of two markers of inflammation. The main results of the present thesis support some concepts of current thinking on cirrhosis pathophysiology, including the relationship of markers of inflammation to  haemodynamics, disease stage and prognosis. Our results also add to a growing body of evidence suggesting that bDNA is not a clinically relevant marker of BT.

[Ab] Abstract:Inferior vena cava (IVC) leiomyosarcoma represents an extremely rare disease that commonly involves the segment between the inflow of the renal veins and the inflow of the hepatic veins (46% of cases). We report the case of a patient affected by an IVC leiomyosarcoma, treated with surgical resection, caval reconstruction with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and right nephrectomy, followed by external beam radiotherapy. Oncological follow-up was negative for 17 years after this combined treatment, since the patient developed a duodenocaval fistula (DCF).

[Ab] Abstract:Work-related injuries among nursing personnel are quite frequent and costly problems in terms of both workers'pain and suffering as well as medical expenses, and lost work for organisations. A descriptive study was conducted in Christian Medical College, Vellore to assess the prevalence of selected work-related health problems among nursing personnel. Total of 500 Nursing personnel were included in the study. The instruments used were Modified Cornell Musculoskeletal discomfort questionnaire to assess and score the musculoskeletal discomfort and CEAP (C-clinical, E-Etiologic, A-Anatomic, P- Pathophysiologic) classification to assess the presence and grade the varicose veins. Results demonstrated that 84.4 percent of the participants had musculoskeletal discomfort and 29.6 percent of the participants had varicose veins. Findings of the study demonstrated that there is a need to increase the awareness among nurses regarding the problems and to follow specific strategies to prevent work-related health problems.

[Ab] Abstract:Two Costa Rican genera, Megalochus gen. nov. and Stethantyx Townes, are revised. These genera comprise a distinctive generic group that we refer to as the Stethantyx genus-group, veins Rs+2r and Rs angled more than 90 degrees, vein 2rs-m and abscissa of M between 2rs-m and 2m-cu not or very weakly thickened, hind wing with vein cul&cu-a (nervellus) more or less vertical, and prepectal carina with upper end not reaching anterior margin of mesopleuron, continuing above and backwards to the subtegular ridge. Both genera include medium sized to large species with body length 4.0 to 15.0 mm. Megalochus comprises only the type species, M. grandis sp. nov., occurring in Costa Rica, Ecuador and southern Brazil. It is the largest representative of the subfamily, with a body length of 10.5 to 15.0 mm. Megalochus differs from Stethantyx, besides the larger body size, by the slenderer first metasomal segment, which is round in cross-section and lacking glymmae, propodeum and metapleuron with coarse rugae, and shortened antennae with strongly transverse flagellomeres. Stethantyx is the dominant, most species-rich genus in the Costa Rican tersilochine fauna and probably in the Neotropical region. Twenty two species of this genus were discovered in Costa Rica, all are new: S. alajuela sp. nov., S. altamira sp. nov., S. aprica sp. nov., S. cacaoensis sp. nov., S. cartagoa sp. nov., S. cecilia sp. nov., S. curvator sp. nov., S. guanacasteca sp. nov., S. heredia sp. nov., S. limona sp. nov., S. mesoscutator sp. nov., S. niger sp. nov., S. nigrofemorata sp. nov., S. notaulator sp. nov., S. orosia sp. nov., S. osa sp. nov., S. propodeator sp. nov., S. pseudoorosia sp. nov., S. pseudoosa sp. nov., S. puntarenasa sp. nov., S. sanjosea sp. nov. and S. tenoriosa sp. nov. A key for distinguishing the genera Megalochus and Stethantyx, and a key to 22 Costa Rican species of Stethantyx are provided.
