Selection of FFPE blocks with confocal microscope to reduce routine workload in pathol- ogy department

In the current setting of a pathology department, the entire workflow from fresh specimen to formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks and HE stained microscopic slides is resource-intensive due to lack of automation. However, shortcuts in the workflow may be an interesting introduction prior to a more complete automation and double us as a resource saving method in a pathology department. We decided to study such a potential shortcut in workflow by focusing on the step between paraffin embedding and the production of H&E stained slides.

Bilateral frontal Sinus Ectopic Angiofibroma: Focus on management of a rare lesion with unusual presentation.

Extranasopharyngeal angiofibromas (ENA) involving paranasal sinuses represent an unusual finding and the localization at the level of frontal sinus is an extremely rare event with few cases reported inliterature [1,2]. The clinical presentation is aspecific, lacking the typical features of their more common nasopharyngeal counterpart with which they share the histological characteristics.

Risk factors for morbidity and mortality in patients with hemorrhage spontaneous cerebral

Spontaneous cerebral hemorrhage is non-aneurysmal or intracranial hemorrhage not associated with trauma or other structural injury. It constitutes 10-15% of all strokes1. Depending on the location, it can be supratentorial or infratentorial. Its most frequent location is in the basal ganglia, associated with the most frequent cause, which is uncontrolled arterial hypertension, its incidence increasing with age2.

Prevalence and impact of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in Infants and Children

Definition: GER is the passage of gastric content from the stomach to the esophagus, with or without regurgitation or vomiting.[1] GER is a common chronic GI disorder. As per [2], It is normal physiologically, typically after meals, it occurs throughout the day in infants and decreases in frequency in children and adolescents. It may be asymptomatic or cause mild regurgitation or rarely vomiting. Regurgitation is caused by passive reflux from the stomach into the pharynx or oral cavity.

Study on the expression of RAD51 in non-small cell lung cancer based on Bioinformatics

Lung cancer remains the most common cause of cancer and cancer death worldwide [1]. More than 50% of patients die within the first year of lung cancer diagnosis, and the 5-year survival rate is less than 20%[2]. According to the latest survey, there were 787,000 new cases of lung cancer in China, with an incidence rate of 57.26/100,000 and a death rate of 63,100, respectively, with a mortality rate of 45.87/100,000. Compared with 2010, the number of new cases increased by 25.56%[3].
