Morphometric evaluation of gross pulmonary indices in the Red Sokoto goats for pulmonary consolidation assessment

In conclusion, this study established the morphometric and percentage contribution of each lung lobe in relation to the age and sex of the RSG. These parameters will aid diagnosis of lung disease and assessment of pulmonary consolidation at postmortem in a poor resource setting.

The objective of this study was to determine the percentage of radiographs which showed a fracture of the wrist. Secondary, the fracture characteristics and the received treatment were determined. Additionally, the percentage of operatively treated patients with a distal radius fracture was compared between the hospitals. A retrospective cohort study was performed in three Dutch hospitals in all consecutive adult patients with wrist trauma who presented at the ED. A fracture of the wrist was defined as a fracture of the distal one-third part of the radius, the distal one-third part of the ulna or any carpal bone. Fracture ...

Radial head dislocation may occur during trauma or in association with congenital diseases, or it may be developmental or idiopathic. Reports of idiopathic dislocation of the radial head have been scarce. The symptoms, radiographic findings, and management of idiopathic dislocation of the radial head have not been well described in the literature.

This study aimed to assess the prevalence of dental findings on panoramic radiographs (PRs) of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) patients and correlate these results with epidemiologic and medical data.Study designA case-control study was conducted with 24 OI patients and 48 sex- and age-matched controls. Demographic, clinical, and bisphosphonate regimen-related data were recorded. The outcome variables were the presence or absence of dental alterations in PRs. Mann-Whitney U, Pearson's chi-square tests, and multinomial logistic regression (95% confidence interval) were used (significance level of 5%).ResultsOI type 4 demonstra...

This study describes the pedicle screw accuracy of the first 56 consecutive cases in which navigated robotic assistance was used in a private practice clinical setting. A retrospective, Institutional Review Board-exempt review of the first 56 navigated robot-assisted spine surgery cases was performed. Pedicle screw malposition, reposition, and return to operating room (OR) rates were collected. A CT-based Gertzbein and Robbins system (GRS) was used to classify pedicle screw accuracy. In the first 56 robotic cases, 356 total pedicle screws were placed. Eight screws were placed without the robot due to surgeon discretion. Of...

AbstractRadicular cysts are the most common odontogenic cystic lesions that occur in jaws. They rarely become problematic and are incidentally found on routine dental radiographs. As they appear to reach a considerable size prior to medical attention due to their insidious and destructive growth characteristics during the intraosseous stage, treatment often requires extensive cystectomy and skeletal reconstruction. Here we present the case of an 18-year-old man who was sent to our department, because of a huge, bulging mass in his left cheek. Surgery consisted of complete removal of the cyst and immediate reconstruction of...

Conclusions: During MIS pedicle screw fixation, this study recommends that pedicle screws should not exceed 85% of the vertebral body length on the lateral view for L1, 80% for L2-L4, and 75% for L5; this will minimize the risk of anterior cortical breach yet maximize pedicle screw purchase for fixation stability.

Conclusion: PS dental implants appeared to be more effective than PM implants for minimizing the mean marginal vertical and horizontal marginal bone loss during the three-year period. Regardless of which abutment connection was used, the dental implant in the present retrospective investigation exhibited minimal marginal bone remodeling, thus indicating long-term stability.

We report the development of eosinophilic polyangiitis granulomatosis (EGPA) in a young girl being treated for both atopic dermatitis, diagnosed at 1 year of age, and bronchial asthma, diagnosed at 4 years of age. Her eruption did not result in lichenification and was not fully responsive to corticosteroid ointment. Asthma lightened by treatment of inhalational steroids. Hypereosinophilia was detected at 5 years of age, at least 20% of white blood cells, and 44% at 8 years of age. At 10 years of age, she was diagnosed with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-negative EGPA. The diagnosis was based on findings of eosinophil...

CONCLUSION: Low albumin and chest radiographic appearance exceeding one-lung area were risk factors for developing PR. Diffuse pulmonary infiltrates in early phase of anti-tuberculosis treatment was related with Inhospital mortality. PMID: 31308335 [PubMed - in process]
