Visibility of the needle tip and shaft is important during ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia in order to prevent nerve trauma. Tip and shaft visibility is reduced when needles are inserted in-plane at wide angles and out-of-plane at narrow angles to the ultrasound probe. Although textured needles are more reflective than smooth ...

About two thirds of laryngeal cancers originate at the vocal cords. Early stage detection of malignant vocal fold alterations, including a discrimination of premalignant lesions, represents a major challenge in laryngology as precancerous vocal fold lesions and small carcinomas are difficult to distinguish by means of regular endoscopy only. We ...
