ConclusionAdults with inadequately repaired rectovestibular fistulas whose initial surgical management specifically targets resection of the proximal rectum and creation of a permanent end colostomy are rare.

This study sought to design a modified model to explore the effect of moderate explosion on brain injury in mice. Methods: Pathology scoring system (PSS) was used to distinguish the graded intensity by the modified model. A total of 160 mice were randomly divided into control, sham, and bTBI groups with different time points. The clinical features, imaging features, neurobehavior, and neuropathology were detected after moderate explosion. One-way analysis of variance followed by Fisher's least significant difference posttest or Dunnett's t 3-test was performed for data analyses. Results: PSS of mild, moderate, an...
