Abstract Objective To evaluate the long-term improvement of clinical symptoms of adenomyosis after treatment with ultrasound-guided high intensity focused ultrasound (USgHIFU). Methods From January 2010 to December 2011, 350 patients with adenomyosis were treated with USgHIFU. Among the 350 patients, 224 of them completed the two years follow-up. The patients were followed up at 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years after HIFU treatment. Adverse effects and complications were recorded. Results All patients completed HIFU ablation without severe postoperative complications. 203 of the 224 patients who showed varying degrees of dysmenorrhea before treatment had the symptom scores decreased significantly after treatment (P < 0.001). The relief rate was 84.7%, 84.7%, and 82.3%, respectively at 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years after treatment. The menstrual volume in 109 patients with menorrhagia was significantly improved after treatment (P < 0.001) with a relief rate of 79.8%, 80.7%, and 78.9%, respectively at 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years after HIFU treatment. Conclusion With its ability to sustain long-term clinical improvements, HIFU is a safe and effective treatment for adenomyosis. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. Source

Gastroschisis requires surgical repair, which is generally performed after birth. We report a case in which a fetus with gastroschisis underwent the abdominal wall defect repair before birth. To ensure reliable operating conditions for the repair (to prevent fetal movement and crying), the fetus received deep anesthesia via placental transfer of maternally administered anesthetics. Meanwhile, the ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure was performed to ensure fetal oxygen supply, which was likely to be compromised by the deep fetal anesthesia. The procedure last for 23 minutes and the gastroschisis was successfully repaired before the neonate was delivered. Maternal hemodynamics was kept stable during this surgical procedure. The prenatal repair of abdominal wall defect is safe for the mother and the fetus, which could potentially improve the neonatal outcomes. © 2015, E-Century Publishing Corporation.

In the present study, 7 patients with brain hemorrhage combined with intracranial tumor were investigated for about 3 years. Furthermore, the previous reports related with such cases were also reviewed. In all of these patients, hemorrhage was a main characteristic of the diagnosed neoplasm. The clinical data were identified by computed tomography (CT) scanning in the present study. CT scanning results demonstrated that there was a neoplastic core with high or low density and multifocal clots generally at the borders of the tumors. Increase of tumor tissues with intravenous injection of approximate 70% hypaque was analyzed in all the 7 patients with brain hemorrhage. The parts that were increased showed peripheral distributions corresponding to the hemorrhage sites. In conclusion, the intracranial brain hemorrhage related with the several types of tumors, including hemangiopericytoma, metastatic carcinomas, oligodendroglioma, and glioblastoma multiforme, which may be helpful to these patients. © 2015, E-Century Publishing Corporation.
