Currently available peroral cholangioscopy (POC) is a duodenoscopy-assisted procedure that does not involve directly inserting an endoscope into the biliary tree. A prototype multibending (MB) ultra-slim endoscope has been developed as a dedicated cholangioscope to overcome the technical difficulties of direct POC. In this study, we evaluated the efficacy of the new MB ultra-slim endoscope compared with a conventional ultra-slim endoscope for free-hand insertion of an endoscope into the bile duct for direct...
Various guidelines recommend several sampling techniques to verify endoscope reprocessing, but a comparative study of the efficiency for recovering microorganisms was rare. Our goal was to compare different sampling techniques for the postreprocessing endoscope to assess residual bacterial contamination and analysis of the critical factors affecting the endoscope reprocessing failure.
Dynamic changes in urine output and neurological status are the recognized clinical signs of hemodynamically significant hemorrhage. In the present study, we analyzed the dynamic minute-to-minute changes in the UFR and also the changes in its minute-to-minute variability in a group of critically ill multiple trauma patients whose blood pressures were normal on admission to the ICU but who subsequently developed hypotension within the first few hours of their ICU admission.
We present a novel FMT endoscope by using a MEMS scanning mirror and an optical fiberscope. The diameter of this highly miniaturized FMT device is only 5mm. To our knowledge, this is the smallest FMT device we found so far. Several phantom experiments based on indocyanine green (ICG) were conducted to demonstrate the imaging ability of this device. Two tumor-bearing mice were systematically injected with tumor-targeted NIR fluorescent probes (ATF-PEG-IO-830) and were then imaged to further demonstrate the a...
Current literature suggests that longer duration of EEG recording increases the yield of detecting interictal epileptiform discharges. However, optimal duration for a repeat study in patients with initially normal 30-minute EEG is not clear. Thus, the purpose of this study is to determine whether a 2-hour EEG has a diagnostic advantage over a routine 30-minute EEG in detecting epileptiform abnormalities in patients who had a first normal 30-minute EEG.
Despite successful clinical applications, teleoperated robotic surgical systems face particular limitations in the functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) in terms of incompatible instrument dimensions and robot set-up. The endoscope remains manually handled by an assistant when the surgeon performs bimanual operations. This paper introduces the development of the Foot-controlled Robot-Enabled EnDOscope Manipulator (FREEDOM) designed for FESS. The system features clinical considerations that inform the d...
To discuss the surgical outcome of using trepan to treat single segment Ossification of Ligamentum Flavum (OLF) under the endoscope and evaluate the application value of the new surgical treatment.
Fractures of the orbital floor have traditionally been treated through transorbital approaches. Transconjunctival approaches risk entropion, whereas transcutaneous approaches risk ectropion or hypertrophic scarring. The intraoral transantral approach to the orbital floor has the advantage of minimizing the risk of any eyelid changes while providing appropriate access to reduce the herniated orbital contents and restore orbital volume. This article describes 4 plating methods for reconstructing a fractured o...
The current endoscope design is not ergonomic. There is a high prevalence of endoscopy-related injury reported in the literature, and studies have demonstrated high-risk biomechanical exposures during the performance of routine colonoscopy. Endoscopy ergonomics focuses on understanding the endoscopist's interaction with the endoscope and the endoscopy unit and re-designing these tasks to minimize risk of endoscopy-related injury. The conversation to date has focused on what the endoscopist can do to minimiz...
An arachnoid cyst in the internal auditory canal is a quite rare pathology but due to its compressive action on the nerves in this district should be surgically removed. Several surgical techniques have been proposed but no surgeons have used the minimally assisted endoscope retrosigmoid approach for its removal.
To carry out a pilot study to evaluate the efficacy of a novel, drivable endoscope (the Peregrine™ Drivable ENT Scope), compared to standard rigid endoscopes in the access, visualization, and irrigation of the paranasal sinus anatomy.
Elmer, DJ, Barron, EN, and Chavez, JL. Acute demands and recovery from common interval training protocols. J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2019-The definition of interval training is quite broad, with no accepted procedure for classifying protocols with different workloads and work and recovery interval times. In addition, little is known about the differences in training load and recovery from common interval protocols. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences in acute physiological de...
Objective functional measures such as the 6-minute walking test (6WT) are increasingly applied to evaluate patients with degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine before and after (surgical) treatment. However, the traditional 6WT is cumbersome to apply, as it requires specialized in-hospital infrastructure and personnel. The authors set out to compare 6-minute walking distance (6WD) measurements obtained with a newly developed smartphone application (app) and those obtained with the gold-standard distance ...
The current state-of-the-art surgical robotic systems use only a single endoscope to view the surgical field. Research has been conducted to introduce additional cameras to the surgical system, giving rise to new camera angles that cannot be achieved using the endoscope alone. While this additional visualization certainly aids in surgical performance, current systems lack visual-motor compatibility with respect to the additional camera views. We propose a new system that overcomes this limitation.
This study was performed to evaluate the clinical feasibility of a U-net for fully automatic uterine segmentation on MRI by using images of major uterine disorders.
Despite the growing interest in sedentarism, there is no available information on the profile of patients with COPD according to sedentary behaviour (SB) and with a detailed analysis of minute-by-minute bouts. Hence, the aims of this study were to quantify the time spent in SB, light activities and moderate-to-vigorous physical activities (MVPA) and to verify the relationship of MVPA and SB in individuals with COPD, as well as to identify the profile of those physically (in)active and (non)-sedentary. A cro...
Development of a fully automatic algorithm for the automatic localization and identification of vertebral bodies in computed tomography (CT).
Exophytic lesions involving the face present with an undesirable esthetic deformity and usually necessitate surgical excision. Conventional open excision techniques may lead to scar formation or pigmentation issues postoperatively. Minimally invasive endoscope-assisted surgery will be able to overcome these problems. However, this technique is not widely used because of the limited optical cavity working space, which hinders good visualization. We describe a technique to improve the optical cavity workspace...
Currently 4D cone-beam CT (CBCT) requires a 3-4 minute full-fan scan to ensure usable image quality. Recent advancements in sparse-view 4D-CBCT reconstruction have opened the possibility to reduce scan time and dose. The aim of this study is to provide a common framework for systematically evaluating algorithms for 4D-CBCT reconstruction from a one-minute scan. Using this framework, the AAPM-sponsored SPARE Challenge was conducted in 2018 to identify and compare state-of-the-art algorithms.
The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) in children can be performed in the conventional way, or by using a measuring wheel. This study aimed to compare these test modalities and to determine influencing factors.
The pooling of the liquid in esophageal lumen can worsen the field of vision and cause liquid reflux to the mouth, which leads to aspiration pneumonia, in esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). We developed a continuously liquid-sucking catheter attachment for the endoscope (CLCA), which has multiple tiny holes and can suck the liquid without causing mucosal injury. Thus, we aimed to reveal the efficacy of CLCA in esophageal ESD.
