Right heart tamponade and intermittent cyanosis due to Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia in a neonate
We describe a newborn with fetal aberrant ductus venosus with progressive right ventricular dilation prompting early delivery. Post-natally, the baby had frequent episodes of cyanosis. Echocardiogram during distress showed compression of the inferior vena cava and of the right heart, with significant right to left shunt through patent foramen ovale. Infant underwent successful laparoscopic diaphragmatic hernia repair with resolution in her episodes of cyanosis.
ConclusionOur results suggest that the combination of altered expression of genes involved in signaling pathways of immune response and apoptosis control may contribute directly to the main characteristics observed in BS, such as recurrent infections, growth failure, and high risk of cancer. Transcriptome studies of other instability syndromes could allow a more accurate analysis of the relevant gene interactions associated with the destabilization of the genome. This is a first description of the profile of differential gene expression related to immunological aspects detected in patients with BS by RNA ‐seq.
This study examined surgically diagnosed aortitis and identified patient characteristics and imaging findings associated with the disease.MethodsIn this case ‐control study, cases had biopsy proven, newly‐diagnosed, non‐infectious aortitis following open thoracic aortic aneurysm surgical repair. Five controls were matched by year of surgery and lacked significant inflammation on pathology. Comorbidities, demographics, laboratory, and imaging abnorm alities prior to surgery were collected. Associations between exposures and outcomes were evaluated using conditional logistic regression. Backward stepwise logistic regre...
Conclusion: The use of dermofat grafts to correct anophthalmic socket problems caused by orbital volume deficits or volume displacements is an effective, reliable, and reproducible surgical method.RESUMO Objetivos: Identificar os problemas causados pelo desequil íbrio do volume da cavidade da prótese em cavidades anoftálmicas, e avaliar a reabilitação com enxerto de dermofato como solução. Métodos: Revisamos retrospectivamente os prontuários de pacientes operados em nossa clínica (entre maio de 2011 e junho de 2016) com enxertos de dermofato para tratar ...
ABSTRACT Purpose: To review the outcomes of frontalis suspension surgeries with the use of polytetrafluoroethylene in patients with blepharoptosis. Methods: A retrospective observational study analyzed the outcomes of frontalis suspension surgeries performed in a single institution from 2003 to 2018. All procedures were performed with closed incision and single pentagon techniques. Outcomes were classified as satisfactory or unsatisfactory, with satisfactory defined as a margin reflex distance of>3 mm and3mm e
We present a patient who underwent evisceration surgery after spontaneous rupture of the ocular globe due to long-data uncontrolled glaucoma, with posterior placement of an orbital implant made of a bone cement compound based on polymethylmethacrylate as alternative materials were not available. Such a compound is characterized by excellent biocompatibility and low cost, which makes it an interesting alternative for treatment. The anophthalmic socket was successfully filled, providing proper esthetic results and favorable conditions for the posterior scleral prosthesis implantation. No complications were observed during 10...
Conclusions: Stroke management is based on evaluation of individual patient-risk factors. Evaluation and treatment is ideally directed by a vascular neurologist to ensure optimal secondary prevention, especially in cases where an underlying etiology is not identified on initial workup.

ConclusionWe hereby provide a comprehensive in ‐depth analysis of how to study functional recovery after injury of the femoral nerve in the rat via the CatWalk XT. We place special emphasis on highlighting the differences between the femoral nerve and sciatic nerve injury model in this context.
Conclusions: Neuroma excision followed by nerve repair/reconstruction resulted in better outcomes compared with neuroma excision alone with or without implantation. Patient age and psychosocial factors influenced patient-reported outcomes. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Risk, III.
