Vagal schwannoma of the posterior mediastinum with cervical extension

A 35-year-old male was admitted to our Emergency Department with chest pain and hoarseness lasting for a month. A well-defined 58x36x34 mm mass located in the left posterior mediastinum with cervical extension was found on radiological imaging. It was completely excised with transversal cervicotomy and left-sided videoassisted thoracoscopic surgery. Schwannomas originating from the intrathoracic vagus nerve are extremely rare. Due…

Pathologic response prediction and neoadjuvant rectal score evaluation in patients with rectal cancer

Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the factors of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) affecting the pathologic response in locally advanced rectal cancer. Material and Method: A total of 80 rectal cancer patients undergoing nCRT were included in the study to investigate clinical and pathological factors associated with tumor regression grade. Neoadjuvant rectal scoring (NAR) was calculated to predict overall…

Physical therapy protocol for obese adolescent girls with polycystic ovarian syndrome: a within-subject design

Aim: In this study, we aimed to explore the effect of a suggested physical therapy protocol on the anthropometric parameters and hormonal profile of obese adolescent girls with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Material and Method: Twenty obese adolescent girls with PCOS participated in this study. Their ages ranged from 14 to 18 years and their body mass index (BMI) ranged…

The utility of echocardiographic right ventricular parameters in predicting response to cardiac resynchronization therapy in patients with heart failure: A proof of concept

Aim: Despite the guideline-based selection of patients, failure to respond to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) remains common. We aimed to assess the utility of right ventricular (RV) echocardiographic parameters to predict response to CRT. Material and Method: A prospective study of 30 patients who were eligible for CRT. Echocardiographic RV parameters were assessed at baseline and 6 months post-CRT. CRT…
