ConclusionsSubpulmonic membrane as an isolated cause of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction is rare. Its association with cor triatriatum dexter is even less common. The result of percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty of subpulmonic membrane is an interesting alternative while waiting for surgery. Surgery is currently the preferred modality of treatment with the resection of both right atrial and subpulmonic membranes.

Authors: Asmelash D, Tesfa K, Biadgo B Abstract Background: Thyroid dysfunction is the most common endocrine disorder in clinical practice, and about half of the population with thyroid dysfunction remains undiagnosed. There is a fairly wide spectrum of thyroid dysfunction, which can be identified by patterns of thyroid function test results. The prevalence of thyroid dysfunction among the population varies in different studies. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted from February 8th to April 8th, 2017, among patients who requested for the thyroid function test in an endemic goiter area at the Gondar H...

The anterior node appeared as a single cystic lesion without significant metabolic activity on scintigraphy images. The posterior node was a single solid lesion in the lower left peri-esophageal space above the diaphragmatic crura with moderate metabolic uptake. Endoscopic ultr...

Recently the relationship between post-translational modifications and EMT has been reported. O-GlcNAcylation, one of the key post-translational modifications, was rarely mentioned about its role in EMT, especially in EMT during the process of RIF. The current study aimed to determine w...

This article discusses the different mechanisms of injury, early assessment and investigations. It goes on to highlight the features of a trauma laparotomy, its preparation, management and the systematic approach for damage control surgery. The main abdominal organs are outlined in more detail to describe the individual approach to them in trauma.
