ConclusionBA was found in nearly half of twin subjects with an even gender split. Isolated BA was the largest group, in which the number of monozygotic twins was similar with dizygotic twins, so the onset of the disease may not associate with the zygosity of twins. Most of twin sets had discordant disease presentation, especially monozygotic twins therein, emphasizing the role of epigenetic factor in the pathogenesis of BA. Future studies should take genetic testing among any twin sets in BA, especially the disease-associated mutations, thus be useful to investigate the etiology of disease.

AbstractFemoral hernia is the protrusion of a peritoneal sac through the femoral ring into the femoral canal lying deep and inferior to the inguinal ligament. The hernia sac usually contains preperitoneal fat, omentum, bowel, or fluid. Ultrasound is recommended as the first-line investigation for diagnosing clinically occult femoral hernias in nonemergency settings, whereas CT is the imaging of choice in emergency settings. High accuracy of the ultrasound in clinically occult femoral hernia is further validated with further CT and MRI. In this article, we propose sonographic detection of the physiological peritoneal fluid ...

Discussion Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor (CFTR). It is found in the epithelium of the bronchi, intestine, pancreatic duct and biliary tree. It regulates chloride, bicarbonate and water secretion. The heterozygous state helps prevent against secretory diarrhea, but the homozygous state causes thickened secretions in the hollow tubes of the lungs and digestive tract. There are multiple mutations (> 2000) which have been currently classified into classes depending on their protein production and activity. CF patients generally are l...

This study aimed to determine the characteristics and outcomes of umbilical cord hernias. We also highlight an alternative repair method for umbilical cord hernias.MethodsWe recorded 15 cases of umbilical cord hernias over 10  years. The patients’ data were retrospectively reviewed, and preoperative preparation of the newborn, gestational age, birth weight, other associated malformations, surgical technique used, enteral nutrition, and length of hospitalization were recorded.ResultsThis study included 15 neonates with umbilical cord hernias. The mean gestational age at the time of referral was 38.2  ± 2.1

Conclusions: The most common associated anomalies in our study were related to the vascular variation at the porta hepatis and the digestive system. The existence of anomalies in distantly developing anatomic regions in patients with EHBA supports the possibility of a "generalized" insult during embryogenesis rather than a "localized" defect. In addition, male infants were observed to have significantly more associated anomalies as compared with the female infants in contrast to earlier reports.
