  • Orbital Lobe and Palpebral Adenomas of the Lacrimal Gland Behave as Distinct Entities. [Journal Article]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]Rose GE, Vahdani K
  • CONCLUSIONS: As expected, excised palpebral adenomas-readily palpable in the eyelid-are very much smaller than orbital lobe tumors, that tend to be impalpable. If pleomorphic adenomas in the 2 locations were biologically identical, they should arise at the same time and have similar growth rates-which would mean that orbital pleomorphic adenomas ([PAs] being, on average, 6 times the size of palpebral PAs) should present several decades later. The age at presentation and age at first symptom are, however, almost identical in the 2 groups. These observations provide incontrovertible evidence that, in their biological behavior, palpebral and orbital PAs are distinct entities-either arising at different ages (with orbital tumors arising much earlier in life) or having different growth rates (palpebral PAs being slower).
  • Thyroid tumor surveillance using ultrasound in childhood cancer survivors. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Int. 2020 May; 62(5):562-568.Furui Y, Morita D, … Nakazawa Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Childhood cancer survivors irradiated in the thyroid had a higher prevalence of thyroid nodules than the general population. Ultrasound screening contributed to early detection of impalpable thyroid cancer and enabled us to perform minimal surgery. Thus, ultrasound appears to be a useful option for secondary thyroid cancer screening. The thyroid tumor surveillance modality should be considered according to the individual case, and the patient must receive a clear explanation of the benefits and risks. These results could help doctors consider how to screen for secondary thyroid cancer.
  • Management of clinically node-negative groin in patients with penile cancer. [Review]
    Indian J Urol. 2020 Jan-Mar; 36(1):8-15.Niyogi D, Noronha J, … Prakash G
  • Malignant penile neoplasms are commonly squamous etiology, with the inguinal nodes being the first echelon of spread. The disease spreads to the pelvic lymph nodes only after metastases to the groin nodes, and this is the most important prognostic factor in penile carcinoma. While treatment of penile carcinoma with proven metastases to the inguinal lymph nodes mandates ilioinguinal lymph node dis…
  • The Diagnosis and Treatment of Impalpable Testes at King Salman Armed Forces Hospital, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2020 Jan 15; 12(1):e6659.Mohammad Alnoaiji MS, Ghmaird A, … Alrashidi TN
  • Background Impalpable testes may be caused by atrophy, congenital dysgenesis/agenesis, or the presence of testes at unusual sites. Early intervention can improve patient outcomes. The recommended age for surgery ranges from 6 to 18 months. Objective To investigate the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of impalpable testes and sensitivity and specificity of ultrasonography to diagnose impalpable …
  • Age at Surgery and Outcomes of Undescended Testes at King Salman Armed Forces Hospital, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2019 Dec 18; 11(12):e6413.Mohammad Alnoaiji MS, Alrashidi TN, … Alshahrani EH
  • Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the age at diagnosis and surgery of undescended testes and patients' outcomes. Methods This is a retrospective study that reviewed the files of patients who underwent orchidopexy at the King Salman Armed Forces Hospital (KSAFH), Tabuk, Saudi Arabia (SA), between January 1, 2015, and March 30, 2019. All children from birth until 13 years old who w…
  • Microcalcification detection in full-field digital mammograms: A fully automated computer-aided system. [Journal Article]
    Phys Med. 2019 Aug; 64:1-9.Basile TMA, Fanizzi A, … La Forgia D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Experimental results demonstrated that the proposed method is able to detect microcalcification clusters in digital mammograms showing performance comparable to different methodologies exploited in the state-of-art approaches, with the advantage that it does not require any training phase and a large set of data. The performance of the proposed approach remains high even for more difficult clinical cases of mammograms of young women having high-density breast tissue thus resulting in a reduced contrast between microcalcifications and surrounding dense tissues.
  • Image-guided Preoperative Localization of Pulmonary Nodules for Video-assisted and Robotically Assisted Surgery. [Review]
    Radiographics. 2019 Sep-Oct; 39(5):1264-1279.McDermott S, Fintelmann FJ, … Sharma A
  • Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and robotically assisted surgery are used increasingly for minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic resection of pulmonary nodules. Unsuccessful localization of small, impalpable, or deep pulmonary nodules can necessitate conversion from VATS to open thoracotomy. Preoperative localization techniques performed by radiologists have improved the success ra…
  • A comparison of stereotactic and tomosynthesis-guided localisation of impalpable breast lesions. [Journal Article]
    J Med Radiat Sci. 2019 Sep; 66(3):170-176.Madeley C, Kessell M, … Taylor D
  • CONCLUSIONS: The degree of accuracy of pre-operative localisation of impalpable breast lesions is significantly higher with the use of prone stereotactic rather than upright tomosynthesis guidance. This was most evident with the placement of I-125 seeds, and in cases where the target lesion was located below the level of the nipple.
  • Uniportal VATS Coil-Assisted Resections for GGOs. [Journal Article]
    J Oncol. 2019; 2019:5383086.Congedo MT, Iezzi R, … Margaritora S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative CT-guided coil localization seems to be a feasible, safe, and accurate procedure. It makes uniportal VATS an easy approach even for resecting small, deep, and impalpable nodules.
  • Laparoscopic splenectomy for littoral cell angioma of the spleen: A case report. [Case Reports]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2019 Mar; 98(11):e14825.Li MJ, Zhou X, … Wu LQ
  • CONCLUSIONS: LCA was a rare primary vascular neoplasm of the spleen, and laparoscopic splenectomy for LCA was safe and feasible, and postoperative course was uneventful. However, regular follow-up and long-time monitoring after splenectomy for LCA is recommended because of its potential malignant biological behavior.
