Transurethral En bloc excision of pediatric bladder tumor using holmium laser
Pankaj N Maheshwari, Anant P Pore, Saurabh R Patil, Nick OkwiJournal of Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons 2019 24(3):203-205 A 12-year-old male child, during evaluation of chronic constipation, was incidentally diagnosed to have a fronded bladder growth. Transurethral en bloc excision of the tumor was achieved using holmium laser. Histopathology confirmed it to be an inflammatory pseudotumor. This case is reported for its unusual presentation and management by holmium laser.
In conclusion, it is recommended that in addition to direct microscopic examination, the use of additional methods such as culture and PCR will be useful in routine laboratory diagnosis of Blastocystis spp. The distribution of Blastocystis subtype in Aydin is mainly in accordance with the global findings. Lack of a relationship between Blastocystis spp. İnfection and symptoms in our study was supported the idea that Blastocystis spp. infection is mostly asymptomatic in humans and it may be a member of healthy microbiota.

ConclusionsNusinersen demonstrated a favorable safety profile in children with symptomatic infantile- and later-onset SMA. Most reported AEs and serious AEs were consistent with the nature and frequency of events typically seen with SMA or in the context of lumbar puncture procedures.RegistrationNCT01494701, NCT01703988, NCT01839656, NCT02193074, NCT02292537, NCT01780246, NCT02052791.

Conclusion: Given the low level of evidence and paucity of data on dietary management of neurogenic bowel, the efficacy of dietary strategies (alone or in combination with others) in managing neurogenic bowel cannot be substantiated from the studies identified. Therefore, more robust studies are warranted to bridge this gap. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION Consumption of ∼15 g dietary fibre is shown to be beneficial in managing neurogenic bowel in SCI. Further research is required to strengthen evidence for fibre recommendations and investigating the potential benefits of traditional and non-traditional dietary ...
ConclusionOsteopathy does not reduce the incidence of nausea/vomiting in women operated for breast cancer and undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy. In contrast, patient reported digestive quality of life was significantly ameliorated by osteopathy. Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier: NCT02840890.
