Outcome of pure mucocele‐like lesions diagnosed on breast core biopsy
Current guidelines recommend that mucocele‐like lesions (MLL) of the breast diagnosed on needle core biopsy (NCB) should be categorized as a lesion of uncertain malignant potential (B3). However,Expand
Mitral Regurgitation Grading in the Operating Room: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Comparing Preoperative and Intraoperative Assessments During Cardiac Surgery.
OBJECTIVE To assess differences in mitral regurgitation (MR) grade between the preoperative and the intraoperative evaluations. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analysis of 6 observational studiesExpand
Association between seven single nucleotide polymorphisms involved in inflammation and proteolysis and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
BACKGROUND Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) formation involves an inflammatory and proteolytic process. Previous studies suggest that AAA is a multifactorial disease with a strong genetic background.Expand
