We present a case report that entails prenatal ultrasonography, postnatal characteristics, and molecular genetic analysis of a newborn who presented with thanatophoric dysplasia type I (TDI) with a mutation in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 gene (FGFR3). A malformed newborn with tachypnea, delivered by caesarean at the gestational age of 39 weeks, was the first child of nonconsanguineous parents by a spontaneous pregnancy. Features in prenatal ultrasonography and postnatal radiography were consistent with the diagnosis of TDI, presenting with short body length (38 cm, 97th percentile). The proposita had postna...

Abstract Most patients who undergo epidural anesthesia are pregnant and thus a protected population, which has limited investigations of the human epidural space. Among the several species studied as models for the human spine, the porcine spine has been used as a model for spine instrumentation. Although the spread of colored dye within the porcine epidural space has been investigated, no model has demonstrated in situ spread by using radiopaque contrast dye. To this end, we here used 10 Yorkshire swine cadavers through an approved tissue sharing agreement. Epidural catheters were placed by using alandmark-based ...

ABSTRACT A healthy 37 - year - old woman referred to our clinic with one - year history of recurrent urinary tract infection, dysuria and frequency. Her past medical history informed us that an IUD (Copper TCu380A) had been inserted 11 years ago. Eleven months after the IUD insertion she had become pregnant, unexpectedly. At that time, she had undergone gynecological examination and abdominal ultrasound study. However, the IUD had not been found, and the gynecologist had made the diagnosis of spontaneous fall out of the IUD. She had experienced normal pregnancy and caesarian section with no complications. On physical exami...

Conclusion: Our findings indicate that the genetic test based on WES can be useful in diagnosing SYM1 patients, with particular advantages in preventing the fetus from contacting harmful X-ray through the traditional radiography. The novel pathogenic mutation identified would further expand our understanding of the mutation spectrum of NOG in association with SYM1 disease and provide a guidance on how to determine whether the fetus is affected by SYM1 through the prenatal diagnosis. Introduction Proximal symphalangism (MIM#185800, SYM1) is a rare autosomal dominant bone disorder with principal features of variable ...

CONCLUSION: A high degree of suspicion is required to avoid misdiagnosis and management delay. Surgical treatment must be individualized according to gestational age and clinical setting. PMID: 30799220 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 4 January 2019Source: Orthopaedics &Traumatology: Surgery &ResearchAuthor(s): Jean Charles Le Huec, Andreas Tsoupras, Amelie Leglise, Paul Heraudet, Gabriel Celarier, Bengt SturressonAbstractThe sacro-iliac joint (SIJ) located at the transition between the spine and the lower limbs is subjected to major shear forces. Mobility at the SIJ is very limited but increases during pregnancy and the post-partum period. Familiarity with the anatomy and physiology of the SIJ is important. The SIJ is a diarthrodial joint that connects two variably undulating cartilage surfaces, contains synov...

Conclusion. These data indicate hip/pelvic anatomical variations are associated with the degree of pain increasing and the activity-specific pain during pregnancy, which may help to have further understanding on the biomechanical factor in developing pregnancy-related sacroiliac joint pain.
