Hyponatremia is frequently encountered in hospitalized patients. According to the measured plasma tonicity, hyponatremia could be hypotonic, isotonic or hypertonic.
According to the volemic status hyponatremia couldbe hypervolemic, euvolemic, or hypovolemic. In renal failure the water intake exceeds the excretion and the result is hypervolemic hyponatremia.

Authors: R. Hainăroşie, M. Hainăroşie, O. Ceachir, Irina G Ioniţă, Cătălina Pietroşanu, V. Zainea

Coblation is a surgical technology which consists in delivering radiofrequency energy to soft tissue. Thistechnology uses radiofrequency in a bipolar mode with a conductive solution, such as saline. It energizes theions in the saline to form localized plasma near the tissue placed in the area of surgical interest.
Juvenile angiofibromarepresents up to 1% of the head and neck tumors. This kind of tumor occurs almost exclusively in malepatients and the average age of onset is 13 to 17 years old.
This rare type of tumor is characterized byunilateral, recurrent, severe epistaxis, reluctant to conventional treatment, that can endanger the p…[more...]

Although cervical cancer is relatively easy to be diagnosed in early stages, there still is an important numberof patients who present with locally advanced disease. In these cases the standard protocole consists in neoadjuvantexternal radiotherapy and brachytherapy combined with Cisplatin ” based chemotherapy followed by surgery. Sometimes even after aggresive neo-adjuvant chemo-irradiation the local invasion is still presentand, in rare cases, the tumoral growth continues, the malignancy being unresponsive to neo-adjuvant treatment. In these cases surgery is the only curative option in order to remove a large and in most of the casesaggress…[more...]

Authors: V. Zainea, M. Hainăroşie, O. Ceachir, Irina G Ioniţă, Andreea Sorică, Cătălina Pietroşanu, R. Hainăroşie

Fibrous dysplasia is a non malignant disease characterized by the replacement of normal bone and marrow with fibrous tissue and woven bone. It can be isolated to a single bone or have multiple skeletal sites (poliostotic).The poliostotic fibrous dysplasia can develop lesions that involve the orbit, the optic nerve, ethmoidand sphenoid bone.
During the development of the lesion at the level of the sphenoid sinus the compressionand the proximity to the optic nerve may cause blindness. In these cases it is recommended to performoptical nerve decompression in order to prevent it.

INTRODUCTION
Acute cardiovascular events that usually involve thrombus formation at sites of disrupted atheroscleroticplaques are currently described as atherothrombosis. Thrombosis is a major complication of atherosclerosisand also a rare but serious complication after stent implantation. However, it does not always result incomplete thrombotic occlusion with subsequent acute symptomatic events (1). Therefore, thrombus growthis critical to the onset of clinical events. Thrombus formation is probably modulated by the thrombogenicityof exposed plaque constituents, local hemorheology, systemic thrombogenicity and fibrinolytic activity.Altho…[more...]

Authors: Alice Bălăceanu, Camelia Diaconu, Cristiana David, A. Niculae, Ileana Peride, Gheorghiţa Aron

Mineral and bone metabolism disorders are common in patients with chronic kidney disease, leading finally tovascular calcification. They contribute to the associated cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidneydisease and also to high mortality rate. Complex mechanisms involve retention of phosphates, decreased ionizedcalcium and 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D, increased FGF-23, secondary hyperparathyroidism.
A large number ofproinflammatory and anti-inflammatory factors (osteopontin, osteoprotegerin, fetuin, and pyrophosphate) were studied in an attempt to clarify the etiopathogenic mechanisms of vascular calcifications. Complex patho…[more...]
