  • An unusual case of abdominal aneurysm: Inferior vena cava aneurysm - A case report. [Journal Article]
    J Cardiol Cases 2019; 19(2):41-46Jayaram A, Ramachandra P, … Pai U
  • Venous aneurysms are rarely reported in the literature since they are usually asymptomatic and incidentally detected due to complications such as thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Often an inferior vena cava (IVC) aneurysm is detected by imaging studies performed for other causes. We report a case of large Type II IVC aneurysm associated with severe pectus excavatum in an asymptomatic man detect…
  • StatPearls: Anatomy, Thorax, Sternum [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Altalib Abdulraheem A. AA Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University Menezes Ritesh G. RG College of Medicine, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, Saudi Arabia BOOK
  • The sternum is a partially T-shaped vertical bone that forms the anterior portion of the chest wall centrally. The sternum is divided anatomically into three segments: manubrium, body, and xiphoid process. The sternum connects the ribs via the costal cartilages forming the anterior rib cage. The manubrium is the broad superior segment, the body is the middle portion, and the xiphoid process is a …
  • Retroperitoneal lipoma; a benign condition with frightening presentation. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 57:63-66Al-Ali MHM, Salih AM, … Abdullah IY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Retroperitoneal lipomas have been reported in various age groups; namely children, middle and old age patients. Based on the characteristic radiological features of the tumor, enormous diagnostic work-up is not justified.Retroperitoneal lipoma is a very rare variant of lipoma, presents with various signs and symptoms that may be misleading. Radiologic imaging especially CT scan is the diagnostic tool of choice. Surgical resection is the main modality of management.
  • Unusual presentation of late-onset disseminated staphylococcal sepsis in a preterm infant. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(3)Khattak SG, Dady I, Mukherjee D
  • An ex-30-week gestation, preterm male baby was admitted to a tertiary neonatal unit and noted to have increased ventilator requirements and diagnosed with sepsis. The baby also developed an abscess over the left elbow and over the xiphisternum along with a decrease in movement of the left hand and the right leg. Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL)-producing Staphylococcus aureus (SA) was isolated f…
  • Hematological Effects of Non-Homogenous Ionizing Radiation Exposure in a Non-Human Primate Model. [Journal Article]
    Radiat Res 2019; 191(5):428-438Jackson IL, Gibbs A, … Vujaskovic Z
  • Detonation of a radiological or nuclear device in a major urban area will result in heterogenous radiation exposure, given to the significant shielding of the exposed population due to surrounding structures. Development of biodosimetry assays for triage and treatment requires knowledge of the radiation dose-volume effect for the bone marrow (BM). This proof-of-concept study was designed to quant…
  • Feasibility of primary sternal plating for morbidly obese patients after cardiac surgery. [Journal Article]
    J Cardiothorac Surg 2019; 14(1):25Liao JM, Chan P, … Chu D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Single xiphoid transverse plate reinforcement for primary sternal closure is a feasible option for morbidly obese patients, who are otherwise at high risk of developing sternal dehiscence. Using this technique may decrease postoperative narcotics usage. Morbidly obese patients (body mass index ≥35 kg/m2) have a higher-than-normal risk of sternal dehiscence after cardiac surgery. In a pilot study, we found that those who underwent transverse sternal plating (n = 8) had no sternal dehiscence and required less postoperative analgesia than patients who underwent standard wire closure (n = 14).
  • Difference between the Right and Left Phrenic Nerve Conduction Times, Latency, and Amplitude. [Journal Article]
    Acta Med Okayama 2018; 72(6):563-566Katayama Y, Senda M, … Ozaki T
  • We studied phrenic nerve conduction times in 90 phrenic nerves of 45 normal subjects. The phrenic nerve was stimulated at the posterior border of the sternomastoid muscle in the supraclavicular fossa, just above the clavicle, with bipolar surface electrodes. For recording, positive and negative electrodes were placed on the xiphoid process and at the eighth intercostal bone-cartilage transition, …
