Urology case reports
Although torsion of epididymis is extremely rare, it should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of acute scrotal pain in adolescents. We report here a very rare cause of acute scrotum: torsion of the epididymis.

The thoracodorsal artery perforator flap with capillary perforators (TAPcp) is based on capillary perforators arising from the descending branch of the thoracodorsal artery and can overcome the drawbacks of the conventional TAP flap, which results in anatomical variations due to the presence of a dominant muscle or septocutaneous perforators. We ap...

PurposeTo study the quality of life (QoL) and sexual function changes of women affected by severe cystocele treated using biocompatible porcine dermis graft.Methods20 women (ranging in age from 47 to 71 years, mean age 58.7) with third- and fourth-degree cystocele (according to Baden and Walker classification) were enrolled. The Short Form-36 quest...
Background: Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) is an accurate and noninvasive method used to screen for renal artery stenosis (RAS). Color Doppler ultrasonography (CDUS) and noncontrast enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (NC-MRA) are considered noninvasive imaging modalities, which require no contrast medium injection. O...

The aim of the study described here was to establish ultrasound criteria for defining the severity of vertebral artery in-stent restenosis. A total of 197 patients with vertebral artery stents were enrolled in this study. Color Doppler ultrasonography was performed after stenting. Peak systolic velocity and end-diastolic velocity within the stent (...

Objective: To evaluate the ability of second-trimester placental volume and vascular indices to predict small-for-gestational-age (SGA) birth weight pregnancies. Material and Methods: Women with singleton pregnancies were prospectively evaluated at 17-20 weeks of gestation. Second-trimester placental volume and vascular indices were obtained and ca...
For hemodialysis patients with increased level of NLR and decreased level of HDL, regular monitoring with regard to the development of AVF stenosis may be beneficial. Our study suggests that the mechanism of AVF stenosis might have similarities to that of atherosclerosis.
Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy
Anatomic arrangement of venous system within the transverse foramen is a controversial topic among authors. Precise knowledge of this arrangement is necessary in imaging where vertebral artery dissection is suspected, as well as in surgical approaches of cervical spine. This knowledge objective cannot be achieved without a prerequisite knowledge of...
Hintergrund und FragestellungDie Mehrphasen-CT-Angiographie (CTA) wird als Goldstandard in der Nachkontrolle nach EVAR betrachtet. Die farbkodierte Duplexsonographie (FKDS) liefert demgegenüber in Studien geringere Sensitivitäten in der Diagnostik von Endoleaks, die Kontrastmittelsonographie (CEUS) liefert jedoch der CTA vergleichbare Treffsicherhe...
