BACKGROUND Calcific tendinitis of the rotator cuff (RCCT) is frequently diagnosed in patients with shoulder pain, but there is no consensus on its treatment. PURPOSE To compare 2 regularly applied RCCT treatments: ultrasound (US)-guided needling and lavage (barbotage) combined with a US-guided corticosteroid injection in the subacromial bursa (subacromial(More)
Early allograft dysfunction (EAD) after liver transplantation (LT) is associated with inferior graft survival. EAD is more prevalent in grafts from donation after circulatory death (DCD). However, accurate prediction of liver function remains difficult because of the lack of specific biomarkers. Recent experimental and clinical studies highlight the(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the most important demographics and radiological characteristics at the time of diagnosis of rotator cuff calcific tendinitis (RCCT), and their associations with long-term clinical outcome. DESIGN Observational study. METHOD Baseline characteristics and treatment were evaluated in 342 patients in whom RCCT had been diagnosed.(More)
An 82-year-old woman without any previous medical history arrived in the emergency department with severe pain in the entire abdomen since 5 h. Blood tests showed, apart from a CRP of 28 mg/l, no abnormalities. We decided to perform an abdominal ultrasound, which showed an easily compressible gallbladder, containing a small, mobile gallstone and free fluid(More)
The demand of donor livers for transplantation exceeds the supply. In an attempt to maximize the number of potentially usable donor livers, several centers are exploring the role of machine perfusion. This review provides an update on machine perfusion strategies and basic concepts, based on current clinical issues, and discuss challenges, including(More)
Knowledge on the epidemiology and long-term course of rotator cuff calcific tendinitis (RCCT) is scarce. We assessed demographics, radiological characteristics, and their association with long-term outcomes in a large patient group. Baseline demographics, radiological characteristics and treatment were recorded in 342 patients. Interobserver agreement of(More)
Recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after liver transplantation (LT) is widely considered as a terminal condition. Therefore, the role of surgery is uncertain in this case. The purpose of this study was to identify the prognostic factors of survival after post-LT HCC recurrence and to evaluate the impact of surgery in this setting. All patients(More)
