Cervical cancer is the most common gynecological neoplasia in the developing world. Developing countries account for two-thirds of the cases and for more than 85% of all deaths due to cervical cancer. In 2016, 16,630 new cases are expected in Brazil alone, representing the third most common malignancy and the fourth leading cause of death among women. Read more.

People with Parkinson's disease (PD) have an inadequate interaction among vestibular, visual and proprioceptive systems that are responsible for motor control. Movement disorders are associated with impaired postural control in PD. Furthermore, the loss of dopaminergic neurons can provoke characteristic symptoms such as rigidity, bradykinesia and resting tremor. These symptoms associated with the loss of postural control are detrimental to static and functional balance. Read more.

o-Phthalaldehyde (OPA) reacts with O-protected tris(hydroxyalkyl)aminomethanes in the presence of 1-propanethiol to afford a novel class of stable isoindoles. Steric protection provided by the bulkiness of C 3-symmetric primary amines derived from tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane could be significant for the stabilization of 1-alkylthio-2-alkyl-substituted isoindoles derived from OPA. A plausible reaction mechanism is proposed to explain the formation of the isoindole and an isoindolin-1-one by-product. Read more.

Secondary Lingular Sleeve Resection to Avoid Pneumonectomy Following Bronchial Anastomotic Dehiscence after Left Lower Lobe Sleeve Resection for Destroyed Lung Syndrome (The Surgery Journal)

Bronchial sleeve resections are technically demanding procedures compared with lobectomies. In case of bronchial anastomotic dehiscence, secondary pneumonectomy is the treatment of choice. However, a secondary pneumonectomy is usually associated with high morbidity and mortality. Here, we first report, to the best of our knowledge, a secondary lingular sleeve resection following bronchial anastomotic dehiscence after left lower lobe sleeve resection in a patient with a destroyed lobe syndrome due to a pseudotumor. This approach enabled the avoidance of secondary pneumonectomy, hence reducing the possible pneumonectomy-associated complications.  Read more.


High-Risk Repair of Traumatic Mitral Valve Rupture in the Setting of Polytrauma (TCS Reports)

Cardiac valvular injury after blunt trauma is an unusual etiology of shock and merits a high index of suspicion for diagnosis. The majority of mitral valve (MV) injuries involve the papillary muscles or chordae tendinae with repair tailored at the underlying pathology. Few reports of MV injury in the setting of trauma exist with the largest review totaling 82 cases in a 2009 publication. We report a case of cardiogenic shock due to MV insufficiency in setting of polytrauma. Read more.
