Conclusion  The arthroscopic reduction-association technique is capable of maintaining the reduction of the scapholunate joint and of improving symptoms, while preserving range-of-motion. The use of an absorbable screw is an option in this technique, and may diminish screw-related complications. PMID: 29922495 [PubMed]

AbstractYoung children (n = 7526) assessed within a statewide early intervention program between 2008 and 2015 were screened for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using the Baby and Infant Screen for Children with aUtIsm Traits- Part 1 (BISCUIT- Part 1). The relationship between premature birth, birth weight, and ASD scree ning outcome was examined using bivariate analyses and multivariate logistic regression analyses (adjusted for child’s gender, ethnicity, age at screening, and developmental delays). Results indicated that birth weight was a stronger predictor of screening outcome than premature birth, w...

Burgess Large-scale genomic studies have recently identified genetic variants causative for major neurodevelopmental disorders, such as intellectual disability and autism. However, determining how underlying developmental processes are affected by these mutations remains a significant challenge in the field. Zebrafish is an established model system in developmental neurogenetics that may be useful in uncovering the mechanisms of these mutations. Here we ...

CONCLUSIONS: There is a negative attitude toward epilepsy surgery based on the patients' misperceptions of suffering neurological deficits during the surgery, reflecting lack of knowledge toward this type of treatment. These perceptions can contribute to delays in surgical care. PMID: 29923595 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS. : Nourishing practices make possible the cultural transmission of food preferences and aversions and, additionally, generate a context that fosters the development of very diverse learning which, in the case of children with some type of disability, could contribute to the improvement of their pro-social skills and repertoires mediated by their mothers or caregivers.

Authors: Cortez-Bazán N, Delgado JR, Galdos O, Huicho L Abstract Pott's disease is a health problem in developing countries and its diagnosis in children is a challenge. Here we present the case of a two-year-old boy with Pott's disease involving T1 to T3 thoracic vertebrae. The clinical presentation was characterized by difficulty walking, fever, cough, and dyspnea. At physical examination, kyphosis and bony prominence were observed in the cervicodorsal area. A positive tuberculin test was obtained, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis was isolated via culture of the gastric aspiration sample. The spine MRI showe...

Authors: Nanthakomon T, Pongrojpaw D, Chanthasenannont A, Somprasit C, Tanprasertkul C, Suwannarurk K Abstract Objective: The aim of the study was to determine normative values of intracranial translucency (IT) by ultrasonography in singleton pregnant women patient at Thammasat University Hospital during the first trimester. Material and Method: The first trimester singleton pregnant women (11-13 weeks) underwent routine ultrasonography screening. The gestational age was calculated by measuring the length of the embryo or fetus from the top of its head to bottom of the buttocks (crown-rump length; CRL) and IT o...
