Jan 21st, 2022 - Background Although various radiographic modalities are readily available to identify lesions that are suspicious for breast cancer, mammography remains the mainstay of breast cancer screening. The role of breast sonography is confined mainly to the diagnostic follow-up of a mammographic abnormality because it may help clarify features of a potential lesion. The role of magnetic resonance imagi...

Jan 21st, 2022 - Background Over the past few decades, biliary interventions have evolved a great deal. Opacification of the biliary system was first reported in 1921 with direct puncture of the gallbladder. Subsequent reports described direct percutaneous biliary puncture.

MRI for Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/400845-overview

Jan 21st, 2022 - Practice Essentials Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the preferred examination for evaluating posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries. It is the most sensitive and the most widely used modality for evaluating the PCL and other cartilaginous and ligamentous structures of the knee. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8] MRI is superior to physical examination and has replaced computed tomography (CT) and...

Antiphospholipid syndrome-mediated acute cerebrovascular diseases and long-term outcomes.
https://doi.org/10.1177/09612033221074178
Lupus García-Grimshaw M, Posadas-Pinto DR et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - The antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disease associated with thrombotic and non-thrombotic neurologic manifestations. APS is classified as primary (PAPS) or secondary (SAPS) when it co-exists with another autoimmune disease. We aim to describe the spectrum of acute cerebrovascular disease among patients with APS, their differences between stroke subtypes, and long-term functiona...

Journal of Natural Products; Liang Z, Li J et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - Vicenistatin (1) is a potent polyketide antitumor antibiotic composed of a 20-membered macrolactam core appended to a unique aminosugar, vicenisamine. In this study, vicenistatin was isolated and its biosynthetic gene cluster identified from Monodonata labio-associated Streptomyces parvus SCSIO Mla-L010. A set of five genes, vicC, vicD, vicE, vicF, and vicG, was confirmed to be involved in the ...

Journal of Interpersonal Violence; Angelone DJ, Mitchell D et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - Ethically constructed laboratory paradigms can provide behaviorally based opportunities to study sexual violence as an addition to questionnaires. One such paradigm invites male participants to watch and show sexual materials to a female confederate as an analog of sexual perpetration. However, there has been inconsistency in the confederate's presentation, such that she either expresses a disl...

Trigeminal neuropathic pain causes changes in affective processing of pain in rats.
https://doi.org/10.1177/17448069211057750
Molecular Pain; Araya EI, Carvalho EC et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - Trigeminal neuropathic pain has been modeled in rodents through the constriction of the infraorbital nerve (CCI-ION). Sensory alterations, including spontaneous pain, and thermal and mechanical hyperalgesia are well characterized, but there is a notable lack of evidence about the affective pain component in this model. Evaluation of the emotional component of pain in rats has been proposed as a...

The sample (N=4,890,693) comprised veterans ages ≥18 years with VHA outpatient visits from March 1, 2018, through February 29, 2020. Veterans with serious mental illness were identified with ICD-10 diagnostic codes from electronic health reco...

Lupus Liang R, Zheng L et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - Since dysregulation of total Interleukin (IL)-18 and IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP) may participate in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and contribute to the occurrence of non-autoimmune epilepsy, the aim of the current work is to investigate whether the interaction between IL-18 and IL-18BP plays any role in neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus related seizures. Data from 137 SLE p...

Jan 20th, 2022 - Retinal vasculopathy including retinal artery occlusion (RAO) or retinal vein occlusion (RVO) was recently found to occur more frequently in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) patients than non-APS patients. This study aims to investigate the clinical manifestation and risk factors of retinal vasculopathy among APS patients. In this single-center prospective cohort study, we evaluated APS patients...

Autism : the International Journal of Research and Practice; Muller K, Brady NC et. al.

Jan 20th, 2022 - It is difficult to measure language comprehension abilities in autistic children who have limited expressive language skills. Results from available assessments may underestimate autistic children's receptive language skills. The primary purpose of this study was to compare alternative modalities and stimuli used to measure receptive vocabulary skills in autistic children who are minimally verb...

Journal of Aging and Health; Brown CJ, Rook KS

Jan 20th, 2022 - Claims that the diversity of social ties matters more for health than the sheer number of ties have largely gone untested. This study accordingly compared the unique associations of number versus diversity of social ties with key health-related outcomes: functional limitations and leisure activities. Additionally, positive and ambivalent ties were distinguished. Social networks, health, and lei...

Jan 20th, 2022 - Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that affects multiple organs. SLE can affect the lung, the pulmonary vasculature, and the pleura. A 38-year-old female with limb pain and ecchymosis who later developed pulmonary thromboembolism and alveolar hemorrhage is presented here. Clinical, imaging, laboratory, and histopathological evidence is presented. The patient met the Eur...
