Wilms' tumor (WT) is the most common abdominal tumor in children. Many pediatric renal tumors in the past were categorized as WT; however, in recent years, several specific renal tumors have been recognized as distinct pathological entities. The age and clinical presentation of the child and distinctive imaging features may help in reaching a specific… (More)
Omental lipomas are extremely rare tumors of childhood. We report a case of solitary giant lipoma of the omentum in a child, successfully managed by complete excision, without any recurrence on follow-up study.
. Renal Doppler ultrasound, CT angiography, magnetic resonance angiography or venography can be used for the documentation of the degree of left renal vein compression . NCS presented with FMF was first reported in 2009 by Ozcan et al., which was similar to our case . Here, we presume that actually, from the beginning, our patient's proteinuria was… (More)
The advent of advanced neuronal interfaces offers great promise for linking brain functions to electronics. A major bottleneck in achieving this is real-time processing of big data that imposes excessive requirements on bandwidth, energy and computation capacity; limiting the overall number of bio-electronic links. Here, we present a novel monitoring system… (More)
BACKGROUND We report 2 patients who have undergone radial keratotomy (RK) preceding ReSTOR(®) multifocal intraocular lens (IOL; Alcon, Fort Worth, Tex., USA) implantation in their nondominant eyes and TECNIS(®) monofocal IOL (Abbott Medical Optics, Abbott Park, Ill., USA) in their dominant eyes. METHODS Retrospective review of 2 patients who underwent… (More)
Angiogenesis plays a key role in tumor growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a pro-angiogenic that is involved in tumor angiogenesis. When VEGF binds to membrane-bound vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (mVEGFR2), it promotes angiogenesis. Through alternative polyadenylation, VEGFR2 is also expressed in a soluble form (sVEGFR2).… (More)
BACKGROUND We report the case of a 40-year-old female patient treated with implantation of the Acrysof® IQ ReSTOR® lens (Alcon, Fort Worth, Tex., USA) with overlaying Acrysof EXpand® minus piggyback lens (Alcon). METHODS The patient had high myopia and was diagnosed with presbyopia and bilateral posterior subcapsular cataract. She desired to be… (More)
