Combined cervical laceration and bladder rupture: a case report of an unusual complica- tion of precipitated labor

Spontaneous bladder rupture following normal vaginal delivery is a surgical postpartum emergency. Previous cesarean section, vacuum/ forceps-assisted vaginal deliveries, and distended bladder compressed by engaged head in birth canal are all risk factors for bladder injuries in healthy parturient women 1.
   

Research Progress of Rhubarb in the Treatment of Liver Fibrosis

Liver fibrosis is the excessive accumulation of extracellular matrix proteins including collagen that occurs in most types of chronic liver diseases.It is a complex disease centered on the activation of hepatic stellate cells and regulated by a variety of cell signal transduction pathways.Advanced liver fibrosis can results in cir - rhosis, liver failure, and portal hypertension.
   

Unilateral Biportal Endoscopy Discectomy for High Grade Migrated Lumbar Disk Herniation with a Homemade Guider

Compared with open lumbar disk herniation discectomy, percutane- ous endoscopic discectomy(PED)has advantages of smaller incision and faster recovery in the treatment of lumbar disk herniation. Al- though successful results have been achieved with the improvement of technology and equipment, the application of PED to treat high- migrated disc herniation is still technical challenging.
   

Development of a novel dental thermal imaging application

Thermography is a process where a (thermal) camera captures and generates an image by using infrared radiation, emitted from an ob- ject [1]. The image provides an opportunity to visibly record invisible (to the human eye) infrared energy or heat. Thermography is non- invasive, non-contact, user-friendly and a portable imaging method and has been used in various industrial fields, such as engineering and construction.
   

Retained Severed Radial Arterial Catheter

The radial artery is the most frequently utilized site for arterial can- nulation due to accessibility and safety, with approximately 8 million catheters placed per year in the USA.1 Radial artery cannulation is associated with a major complication rate of less than 1%. While the most common complication is temporary occlusion (19%), common complications such as thrombosis.
   

Validation of regional wall motion abnormality assessment methods based on coronary CT- angiography with left ventricular function regarding prediction of hemodynamically rel- evant stenoses with instantaneous wave-free ratio

Invasive coronary angiography (ICA) is the gold standard for diag- nostic and treatment of CAD in high-risk patients [1]. Patients with stable angina or silent ischaemia undergo revascularization therapy when ischaemia or a hemodynamically relevant stenosis are detected [2]. The DEFINE-FLAIR and iFR-SWEDEHEART randomized tri- als demonstrated similar outcomes in FFR (fractional flow reserve) and iwFR (instantaneous wave-free ratio) guided revascularizations in patients with intermediate-grade stenosis [3, 4].
