Transient diabetes insipidus post endoscopic third ventriculostomy: Case report and literature review

ConclusionOverinflation of the balloon during ETV and subsequent hypothalamic injury can cause DI, a rare but potentially dangerous complication of this procedure. Postoperative surveillance and management of electrolytes disturbances is crucial to prevent any long term injury. ETV must be reconsidered if the prepontine cistern is not clearly patent to avoid complications.

Publication date: Available online 15 February 2020Source: Chemical Engineering and Processing - Process IntensificationAuthor(s): J.A. Hacking, N.F.E.J. Delsing, M.M. de Beer, J. van der SchaafAbstractA novel design rotating packed bed is presented, aiming at mitigation of liquid maldistribution commonly encountered in rotating packed beds. The design consists of three concentric, perforated rings placed in the packing, which act as liquid redistribution rings. The effectiveness of the redistribution rings in a rotating packed bed was experimentally demonstrated, showing that an induced maldistribution of 3 ×...

AbstractBackgroundIdiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a neurodegenerative disease with an unknown etiology. Disturbed corticospinal inhibition of the motor cortex has been reported in iNPH and can be evaluated in a noninvasive and painless manner using navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS). This is the first study to characterize the immediate impact of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage on corticospinal excitability.MethodsTwenty patients with possible or probable iNPH (16 women and 4 men, mean age 74.4  years, range 67–84 years), presenting the classical symptom triad and radio...

This article aims to classify the severity grading assessments for both insulin resistance (IR) syndrome and status of pancreatic beta (β) islet cells’ function using the homeostasis model assessment method (that is; homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance [HOMA-IR] and homeostasis model assessment-pancreatic beta (β) islet cells’ function [HOMA-B] indices) with the focus of disseminating this information rapidly for clinical use by physicians in their patients with dysfunctional regulation of glucose metabolism. It will also assist clinicians to prevent and screen for these individuals who ar...

In this study, the core-shell polydopamine-coated magnetic nanomaterials were synthesized with one-step approach and applied as magnetic solid phase extraction adsorbents combined with LC-MS/MS for quantification of the diabetes drug glimepiride in beagle dog plasma. The Fe3O4@PDA nanomaterials have strong magnetic response, good dispersibility in aqueous solution, and numerous binding sites for π–π interaction and hydrogen bonding with glimepiride. Based on these merits, glimepiride could be quickly extracted and separated from plasma within 10min. The established method has good linearity (1-2000ng•mL-1)...

Although there are good number of available technologies to clean the glass covers of solar panels, however, self-cleaning coatings, with extreme wettability, is emerging as one of the most reliable solution which can be easily applied and at the same time comes with low cost. Such coatings should be not only good a...

Authors: Augstburger E, Héron E, Abanou A, Habas C, Baudouin C, Labbe A Abstract Ischemic optic neuropathies are among the leading causes of severe visual acuity loss in people over 50 years of age. They constitute a set of various entities that are clinically, etiologically and therapeutically different. Anatomically, it is necessary to distinguish anterior and posterior forms. From an etiological point of view, the diagnosis of the arteritic form due to giant cell arteritis requires emergent management to prevent blindness and even death in the absence of prompt corticosteroid treatment. When this diagnosi...

We investigated the association between FGF-23 concentration and peripheral AS in renal transplantation (RT) recipients.MethodsThe fasting blood samples of RT recipients (n=66) were collected and analyzed.ResultsA total of 29 (43.9%) RT recipients were classified under the peripheral AS group. The RT recipients in this group had a hig...
