Presently described is a case with a twisted catheter in the radial artery during coronary angiography and was removed after stretching it with an external needle tip inserted into the brachial artery. A 77-year-old male patient had undergone coronary artery bypass surgery 10 years earlier and implantation of a permanent pacemaker 2 years prior. He had presented with typical angina and a regional wall motion defect had been observed on echocardiography. Coronary angiography was scheduled. A 5-F sheath (Terumo Corp., Tokyo, Japan) was inserted, and angiography via the right radial artery was initiated. Soon after, the 5-F diagnostic catheter became twisted due to subclavian artery tortuosity. The fold in the catheter could not be flattened with 0.038-mm or 0.035-mm guidewires or rotation movements. With scopy assistance, a 21-gauge, 40-mm, green needle was inserted percutaneously into the catheter through the brachial artery. So, the catheter was stretched and the kink could then be corrected and the catheter was removed from the sheath. Subsequent Images revealed no trauma or deformity of the brachial or radial arteries. It was not possible to straighten the fold until the distal portion of the catheter was fixed in place and stretched. A catheter can be transdermally anchored with a needle if it becomes kinked in the upper extremity vessels. This is a simple and reliable method that is a traumatic.

- SDSichuan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2018; 49(5):803-807
- CONCLUSIONS: CT, broncho-scopy, and pulmonary function tests could provide early evidence to diagnosis of relapsing polychondritis, which is lack of specificity of diagnosis, especially respiratory system symptom onset.
- Are Stone Density and Location Useful Parameters That Can Determine the Endourological Surgical Technique for Kidney Stones That are Smaller than 2 cm? A Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial. [Journal Article]
- UJUrol J 2019 Jun 17; 16(3):236-241
- CONCLUSIONS: Both methods had a similar success rate, but lower pole stones, multiple calyceal stones and stone density parameters affected the stone-free rates significantly, and these may be effective in treatment selection.

- UJUrol J 2019 Jun 17; 16(3):232-235
- CONCLUSIONS: As a result, PNL is an effective method and operation time is lower than RIRS. Also a second oper-ation for JJ stent taking is lower in PNL . RIRS is a safe method. RIRS has less complications and hospitalization time. They are feasible in treatment of ? 4 cm sized kidney stones.

Recent advances in nanotechnology have opened a lot of new possibilities for nanomaterials application in wide variety of industrial, pharmaceutical, medicinal and environmental applications. This review aims to description of various Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR)-based spectroscopic techniques suitable to characterize (i) different types of nanomaterials and (ii) various macroscopic samples at their nanoscale. In the introductory section, nanomaterials are classified according to their crucial properties, i.e. chemical composition, size and surface morphology. Application of traditional FTIR techniques, such as Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR), Diffuse Reflection (DRIFT) and infrared micro (spectro)scopy, for characterization of nanomaterials and nanostructures is compared with novel optical nanoscopic techniques derived from scanning probe microscopy which enable to overcome the diffraction limit and to characterize nanomaterials at molecular scale.

Long-life immunosuppressive therapy increases the risk of de novo tumors in liver transplant recipients by decreasing the immune surveillance against malignant cells and oncogenic viruses. However, no cases of colon precancerous lesions have been reported in these subjects. Patient n. 1, a 73 yrs old male treated with calcineurin and purine synthesis inhibitors, showed at a per-protocol colono-scopy a 3 cm laterally spreading tumor (LST). Patient n. 2, a 73 yrs old male treated with calcineurin inhibitors, showed at a screening colonoscopy an LST occupying one third of the lumen circumference. Both subjects were asymptomatic, had been transplanted 14 years before, and in both cases, lesions showed severe dysplasia. LSTs represent 17.2% of advanced colorectal neoplasia (CRC) and risk factors are multifactorial. Immunosuppression may play a role which is however not completely understood. Based on this report, surveillance colonoscopy in liver transplanted patients should be considered.

- MSMed Sci Monit 2018 Jan 19; 24:377-386
- CONCLUSIONS: Our findings revealed that Sonoma WRx and Micronail implants were equally effective and useful minimally invasive options for treating distal radius fractures. Further, we consider Sonoma WRx superior in terms of shorter operative time, lower complication rates, and better functional outcome scores.
