Liver Metastases from Gists

Gargantilla Pedro, Martin Berta and Pintor Emilio

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 12, 2018

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs) are rare tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, with an estimated incidence of 1.5/100000/year. GISTs are nonepithelial tumors originating in the interstitial Cajal's cells (cells of the autonomic nervous system). These cells express antigens for CD 177 and/or CD 34....

Rapidly Enlarging Thyroid Mass

Gargantilla Pedro, Martin Berta and Pintor Emilio

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: July 11, 2018

An 83-year-old man come to our observation because of a rapidly enlarging anterior neck mass at the last two weeks, dysphagia, dysphonia and neck pain. Patient didn't mention about previous irradiations on the neck either familiarity with thyroid and neoplastic diseases. He had a past medical history of diabetes mellitus type 2. Physical examination revealed one palpable formation (7 × 5 cm) over the right lower neck....

Identification and Validation of the Lactate Threshold Velocity using the Y-Intercept and Slope of the Fit Curve (YIS Method)

Emma Swanwick, David B. Pyne, Bernard Savage and Martyn Matthews

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 11, 2018

Although the Lactate Threshold (LT) has lost some of its status as a marker of exercise intensity, the LT does mark a metabolic transition that, when we are looking to explain energy timelines, can provide an important perspective. This paper is the first of a series looking to clarify and transform how we monitor intensity of exercise. As such we need to create a more robust method of identifying LT....

Intra Capsular but Extra Synovial Foreign Body in the Knee Joint

Gunasekaran Kumar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 11, 2018

Intra-articular foreign bodies especially in the knee joint are well reported. Knee joint is commonly involved due to the large joint area and also due to it being a superficial joint. Foreign bodies enter the joint either by direct inoculation or migration from nearby tissues. Potential complications of intra articular foreign bodies include infection, damage to articular surface and locking of joint. This is a report on a penetrating injury to the knee resulting in an intra capsular but extra synovial foreign body. A 10-year-old boy fell on to railing and sustained injury to the right knee.....

Nutritional and Pharmacological Strategies of Bodybuilders in Preparation Period for Competition

Amanda Assenheimer, Igor Brandao, Mauricio Schüler Nin and Rafael Longhi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 09, 2018

Fifteen athletes were evaluated: 60% (n = 9) males and 40% (n = 6) females, with a mean age of 27 years. Regarding nutrients, carbohydrates had a mean intake of 1.68 g/kg body weight, mean protein content was 3.68 g/kg body weight, and lipids were 20.4% of the Total Energy Value. Protein and lipid intakes were not statistically significant, but when the carbohydrate consumption was compared, there was a statistical difference between the sample values and the recommended ranges. The use of Anabolic Androgenic Steroids was cited by 65% of the sample studied, with the use of more than one type o...

Temporary External Fixation for Forearm Fractures in Damage Control Orthopedics Procedures: Use of a Simplified Frame

Laurent Mathieu, Antoine Grosset, Ismael Hassan Farah, Nicolas de l'Escalopier, James-Charles Murison and Sylvain Rigal

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 06, 2018

External fixation of the forearm may be indicated for Gustilo grade 3B-C open fractures or in unstable polytraumatized patients as part of a damage-control orthopedics (DCO) strategy to prepare secondary conversion to internal fixation by plates. Because conventional forearm frames with separate stabilization of the radius and ulna do not meet DCO requirements, the authors propose to use a single unilateral frame. A case of severe forearm open fracture related to a gunshot wound is presented to illustrate the advantages of this simplified frame....

Clinical Course and Sustained Remission in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Mariana Lagrutta, Roberto Leandro Parodi and Alcides Alejandro Greca

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: July 05, 2018

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory, multisystemic autoimmune disease. It has been described as an often progressive chronic disease, characterized by severe functional decline, radiographic progression, frequent work disability and premature mortality. Efforts have been made to identify among patients with peripheral inflammatory arthritis which patients will have a benign course, with spontaneous resolution, and which will develop a chronic progressive inflammatory disabling disease if untreated....

Psoriasiform Sarcoidosis Presenting in Pregnancy and Treatment Considerations

Christian A Albornoz, Jordan V Wang and Matthew Keller

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 04, 2018

Cutaneous sarcoidosis is a common presentation for patients with sarcoidosis. Rarely, patients can present with psoriasiform lesions mimicking chronic plaque psoriasis. Here, we present a case of psoriasiform sarcoidosis in a pregnant patient. Pregnancy represents a unique challenge to systemic treatments if topical management fails. Tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitors warrant special consideration during pregnancy....

Demonstrated Spatial Irrelevance of Gray Fox at Contaminated Sites: Are Ecological Risk Assessments for Mammals Necessary?

Lawrence V Tannenbaum, David M Bullis, Nicholas R Deuel, L Mike Conner, Michael J Chamberlain and Karl V Miller

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 30, 2018

Ecological risk assessments (ERAs) for contaminated terrestrial sites regularly include mammals as receptors-of-concern whose home ranges dwarf the sites by tens of times. As a consequence, opportunities to sustain chemical exposures of concern are greatly limited. In having notably miniscule densities as well, wide-ranging mammals are poorly selected species to evaluate because true populations are effectively non-existent at sites. Collectively, the case can be made that wide-ranging mammals are spatially irrelevant at sites to a point where ERAs can be streamlined through their non-consider...
