Conclusion: We comprehensively identified ceRNA regulatory networks of embryonic somite development in VAD-CS as well as revealed the contribution of different ncRNA expression profiles. Our data demonstrate the association between mRNAs and ncRNAs in the pathogenic mechanism of CS.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;48:2134 –2146
oduroğlu K Abstract Akgün-Doğan Ö, Şimsek-Kiper PÖ, Utine GE, Boduroğlu K. Anauxetic dysplasia: A rare clinical entity. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 89-93. Cartilage hair hypoplasia and anauxetic dysplasia spectrum constitute a group of autosomal recessive disorders characterized by variable extent of metaphyseal to spondylometaepiphyseal involvement and various additional clinical features. Within this group, anauxetic dysplasia represents the severe end of the skeletal spectrum. However, extraskeletal features including immunodeficiency, hematological abnormalities, and hair hypoplasia are absent,...
Conclusions:PI and FBI showed a significant correlation with both ODI and SRS-22 scores. PI-LL mismatch was strongly correlated with disability in high PI patients. Our study results may indicate that it is important to pay attention to the PI value in addition to the spinopelvic relationship.Level of Evidence: II, prospective study
Conclusions: Patient-reported outcome measures are underutilized in the pediatric orthopaedic literature. Instruments are frequently used that are neither designed nor validated for a pediatric population. Consequently, further work is necessary to develop, validate, and implement pediatric-specific FHS and HRQoL tools to fully understand the impact of a clinical intervention on all aspects of patient quality of life.
Conclusions: Patients with AIS show alterations in scapular kinematics that are associated with shoulder pathology. Despite displaying an unaffected ability to place the hand in space, the underlying joint mechanics place these adolescents at risk for future pathology. Accordingly, consideration of scapulothoracic and glenohumeral joint function is warranted in the treatment of AIS. Level of Evidence: Level III—cross-sectional comparison.
