Surgery of the adrenals

Helvetica chirurgica acta
G Mayor


With 131 operated patients in the University Hospital of Urology in Zurich the indication for surgery in the 4 most frequent groups of adrenal disease is discussed. The preoperative localization of the tumor is exact in 96% of all cases with the serum examination in different stage of the vena cava. The appearance of hypertensive and hypotensive crises during surgery can be prevented with an adequate alpha-adrenergic blockade and volume replacement before and during the operation. In the surgery of Morbus Cushing we prefer the bilateral, dorsal incision on the 11th rib, if we haven't an unilateral adenoma. In the cases of Conn disease the removal of the whole surroundings of the adrenal gland is additionally indicated. The prognosis of the carcinoma of surrenal glands is poor, the adrenalectomy is difficult with regard to the early infiltration, the illness is seldom stopped on account of the frequent metastatic formation.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
