Postnatal Intracranial Findings Following Fetal Repair of Spinal Dysraphisms

Conclusions Normally positioned or minimally descended, oftentimes hypoplastic tonsils in the presence of a posterior fossa configuration typical of Chiari II, was the most common presentation. An additional documented feature was an outpouching of the dorsal thecal sac between the opisthion and the posterior arch of C1.

We report an adult case of periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome, who had a tonsillectomy at 10 years old and relapsed later. An early 40's-year-old man had been suffering from recurrent fever attack once in 1-2 months during childhood. He was accompanied by fever which was persist for several days, aphthous stomatitis, tongued tonsillitis with moss, pharyngitis, and submandibular lymphadenitis with tenderness. He was not doing well during fare-up. At the time of admission, CRP level was 12.5mg/dl and the remarkably increased expression of CD64 on neutrophils was found. Bacterial i...

This study evaluated the quality of YouTube content focusing on common paediatric otolaryngology procedures, as this content can influence the opinions and medical decisions of patients. METHODS: A total of 120 YouTube videos were compiled to review using the terms 'adenoid removal', 'adenoidectomy', 'ear tubes', 'tympanostomy', 'tonsil removal' and 'tonsillectomy'. The Discern criteria was used to rate the quality of health information presented in each video. RESULTS: The mean bias Discern score was 3.18 and the mean overall Discern score was 2.39. Videos including US board certified physicians were rated significantly higher (p

o S, Al-Rashaida M, Infante J Abstract Chiari malformation type I (CM-I) is a neurological disorder in which cerebellar tonsils are herniated through the foramen magnum into the spinal canal. A wide spectrum of cognitive deficits underlying this pathology has been reported, but the literature about social cognition is insufficient. Clinical research has pointed out the cerebellar role in Theory of Mind (ToM), indicating that there are several disorders with cerebellar pathology that reveal a poorer performance in social cognition tasks. The main purpose of this study is to compare the performance on ToM tasks betw...

AbstractBackgroundEmergence delirium occurs in children during recovery from general anesthesia. The aim of the study was to examine the effects of mask and intravenous sevoflurane anesthesia induction on emergence delirium in children undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy.MethodsThis single-blinded, prospective, randomized clinical trial was conducted in the operating room and the post-operative recovery area at a university hospital. Sixty-seven children (aged 3 –12 years) were randomly assigned to receive either mask induction (group M) or intravenous induction (group IV). Vascular access was...
