Tongue carcinoma is an aggressive malignant type of tumor that has a poor prognosis. Since the etiological factors of the condition are largely unknown, the study of biomolecular markers is helpful for the early diagnosis of the condition and the evaluation of prognostic factors, and the selection of treatment. Based on the literature review, IL-6,...

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are considered the gold standard because of their conventional study design, accurately defined endpoints, and high-quality evidence to define any cause-effect relationships. On the other hand, Real-world Data (RWD) relates to the collection of data pertaining to health status of the patient and/or delivery of ro...

Wide-necked aneurysms require comparatively more advanced endovascular and microsurgical techniques than those required for narrow-necked aneurysms. Temporary solitaire stent-assisted coiling technique is used for treating wide neck aneurysms with the advantage of non-requirement of antiplatelet therapy to prevent in-stent thrombosis. We present a...
