Authors: Uysal SP, Sahin M Abstract Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant, multisystem disorder that is characterized by cellular and tissue dysplasia in With the advent of genetic and molecular techniques, mutations in TSC1 or TSC2 genes were discovered to be responsible for mTOR overactivation, which is the underlying mechanism of pathogenesis.

Social connectedness has positive effects on physical and mental health. Many aspects of life, including social networks, are increasingly technology-based, influenced by access to computers.

Two-thirds had used a computer within the past month, most commonly for information seeking, but also for social interaction. However, computer use and social in...

ConclusionsWe did not detect a difference in patient outcomes using the dorsal longitudinal mini-arthrotomy; however, it may prevent incongruent joint reconstruction since all cases occurred in Group 1. In the absence of intraoperative CT scan, longitudinal mini-arthrotomy may be used to enhance visualization and achieve joint surface reconstruction.
