Metacarpal bone reconstruction renders a surgical challenge. We describe a case using 3D printing assisted medial femoral condyle flap for extensive metacarpal reconstruction after wide resection of a large giant cell tumor recurrence. Thus, the length and stability of the entire third ray could be restored without any tumor recurrence.

In this case report, we describe the novel use of a permanent indwelling catheter (PiC) in the management of refractory malignant pericardial effusion (PE). The patient had disseminated lung cancer and was hospitalised repeatedly with circulatory collapse due to malignant PE despite treatments with pericardiocentesis (PCC) and a pericardial window...

Image-guided percutaneous ablation techniques represent an attractive local therapy for the treatment of colorectal liver metastases (CLM) given its low risk of severe complications, which allows for early initiation of adjuvant therapies and spare functional liver parenchyma, allowing repeated treatments at the time of recurrence. However, ablatio...

Background Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer worldwide. Most of BCCs can be detected in the early stages and are generally well controlled with local resection. Despite the high incidence of BCC, metastasis is rarely observed. Metastatic BCCs generally have an aggressive phenotype and are refractory to conventional treatment. Ca...

Acquired resistance to BRAF/MEK-targeted therapy occurs in the majority of melanoma patients that harbor BRAF mutated tumors, leading to relapse or progression and the underlying mechanism is unclear in many cases. Using multiplex immunohistochemistry and spatial imaging analysis of paired tumor sections obtained from 11 melanoma patients prior to...

Osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma are the most common bone sarcomas in children. Their clinical presentation is very variable depending on the age of the patient and tumor location. MRI is the modality of choice to assess these bone sarcomas and has an important function at diagnosis and also for monitoring recurrence or tumor response. Anatomic seque...

Infantile hemangiomas may affect the quality of life (QoL) of patients and their family members, as anxiety and worry may commonly occur in parents, also linked to the social adversion they experience. We underline the beneficial impact of oral propranolol therapy on QoL of patients with infantile hemangiomas (IH) and of their relatives. A specific...

Background There are several genes associated with ovarian cancer risk. Molecular changes in borderline ovarian tumor (BOT) indicate linkage of this disease to type I ovarian tumors (low-grade ovarian carcinomas). This study determined the prevalence and association of mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2, RAD51C , and CHEK2 with the risk of BOTs. Met...

Heterotopic mesenteric ossification (HMO) is a rare condition which usually affects male patients. Its defining feature is hyperdense ossification in the mesentery, usually following surgery or trauma. Due to potentially serious complications that can arise from HMO, it is essential to recognize it in its nascent stages. In this case study, a 65-ye...

For an integer $$q\ge 2$$ q ≥ 2 , a q -recursive sequence is defined by recurrence relations on subsequences of indices modulo some powers of q . In this article, q -recursive sequences are studied and the asymptotic behavior of their summatory functions is analyzed. It is shown that every q -recursive sequence is q -regular in the sense of Allouch...

Although the pathogenesis of immune thrombocytopenia is not fully known, oxidative stress is one of the etiological causes. Copper and zinc are elements in the antioxidant system, and their deficiency causes oxidative stress. We aimed to determine the serum copper and zinc levels and their effects on the response to treatment in patients with immun...

The key challenge of sequence representation learning is to capture the long-range temporal dependencies. Typical methods for supervised sequence representation learning are built upon recurrent neural networks to capture temporal dependencies. One potential limitation of these methods is that they only model one-order information interactions expl...

Epilepsy is the second most common neurological disease after Alzheimer. It is a disorder of the brain which results in recurrent seizures. Though the epilepsy in general is considered as a serious disorder, its effects in children are rather dangerous. It is mainly because it reasons a slower rate of development and a failure to improve certain sk...
