Conclusion: A meningocele surgery is usually not associated with severe postoperative complications which can be encountered in meningomyelocele surgery. Here, in our case, the child with uneventful meningocele surgery arrested 2 h postsurgery with the possible cause being cervical cord edema. Hence, a lesson was learned that strict vigilance is also required in postoperative care for meningocele patients. PMID: 32257571 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common disease in infants. The initial evaluation includes imaging to identify risk factors for permanent renal damage, such as malformation and renal parenchymal involvement of the infection i.e. pyelonephritis. 99mTc-Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scintigraphy is a well-established method for detection of pyelonephritis and renal damage, but has limitations in availability, spatial resolution, and detection of congenital malformations. Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) has been shown to have a high sensitivity for detection of pyelonephritis in children without the use...

AbstractPurposeTo assess the spectrum of computed tomography (CT) findings in patients with genitourinary cancers visiting the emergency room (ER) and evaluate the relationship between CT findings and overall survival (OS).MethodsRetrospective analysis of consecutive patients with genitourinary cancers undergoing CT during an ER visit at a tertiary cancer center during a 20-month period. CTs were considered positive if there were findings relevant to the presenting complaint(s). Demographic/clinical variables were recorded. OS was evaluated using Kaplan-Meier curves. Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards reg...

CONCLUSIONS: Insufficient documentation and inappropriate indications for IDC insertion were features noted during this audit. Daily electronic reminders and prompting concerning TROC are important to reduce catheter days and reduce infection rates. Indwelling catheters and associated infections impact the length of hospitalisation, mortality and morbidity of stroke patients. PMID: 32242174 [PubMed - in process]

Some readers have recently been asking me about curcumin and Covid-19. Is it good or bad to be taking it if you contract coronavirus?  Can it reduce your risk of contracting Covid-19? (See my post on vitamina D, incidentally.) I don’t know. If I had any answers, believe me, I’d be publishing them…immediately. Well, it just so happens that this afternoon I read a very interesting Science Daily article that may shed some light on this matter. It discusses the case study of ONE myeloma patient, in Wuhan, who was given an immunosuppressant drug, a monoclonal antibody, called tocilizumab. Here’s th...

CONCLUSIONS: Removal of Müllerian duct remnantsis advised in order to reduce the jeopardy of malignancy, urinary tract infections, stones and hematuria. On the other hand, excision down to urethra which can compromise the integrity and vascularity of the vas deferens is diffucult, even in experienced surgical hands. Complete excision of these structures by mucosectomy of the distal part of remnant which lay closed to vas deferens is a safe and effective method. Cystoscopy assistance and placement of a catheter into MDRs were essential for the complete excision of this mucosa. To the best of our knowledge, cystoscopy a...
