Sonography: a sensitive and specific method for detecting trochlear cartilage pathologies.

J Ultrasound 2020 Sep 10;23(3):259-263. Epub 2020 Jun 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Shariati Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Jalal Street, Tehran, Iran.

Purpose: MRI is now the modality of choice for evaluating articular cartilage. Nevertheless, it has some general drawbacks. Some patients cannot undergo MRI, and in others US scan could be the first examination and cartilage should be evaluated. Ultrasound could be a useful method for detecting trochlear cartilage low-grade lesions. In this study, our goal was to evaluate the efficacy of ultrasonography in detecting these lesions.

Methods: All patients referred to our hospital, from July 2018 to July 2019, who were arthroscopic candidates due to sport-related pathologies, underwent ultrasound scan 1 day prior to surgery. Ultrasound assessment was performed by an expert radiologist, with a 13-MHz probe, located transversely proximal to the patella in different degrees of knee flexion to assess trochlear lesion grade and thickness. Arthroscopic examination of all patients was performed by an experienced orthopedic knee surgeon (second author). Sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound were calculated.

Results: A total of 48 patients were involved in the study with a mean age of 33.2 years (SD: 9.7), between 19 and 51 years of age. Patients were 81% male (39 patients). The sensitivity of ultrasound in grading of trochlear cartilage lesion was 100%, meanwhile its specificity was 88.2% (30 cases had normal cartilage while this figure was 34 in arthroscopy).

Conclusion: Sonography is a low-cost, accessible diagnostic tool with high sensitivity and specificity for early detection of trochlear cartilage pathologies. It can play an important role as an outpatient diagnostic workup in patients with anterior knee pain.

Primary Hyperparathyroidism Misdiagnosed as Giant Cell Bone Tumor of Maxillary Sinus: A Case Report.

Iran J Radiol 2016 Jan 14;13(1):e13260. Epub 2016 Jan 14.

Advanced Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology Research Center (ADIR), Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Primary hyperparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder recognized by hyperfunction of parathyroid gland, which can result in persistent bone absorption and brown tumor. Facial involvement of brown tumor is rare and usually involves the mandible. Giant cell tumor ( GCT) is an expansile osteolytic bone tumor which is very similar in clinical, radiological and histological features to brown tumor. Herein, we present a 35-year-old woman with an 11-month history of gradually swelling of the right maxilla and buccal spaces began during pregnancy two years ago. No other clinical or laboratory problems were detected. Postpartum CT scan demonstrated a lytic expansile multi-septated mass lesion containing enhancing areas, which initially described as GCT of the right maxillary sinus following surgery. Four months later, gradual progressive swelling of the bed of tumor was recurred and revised pathological slices were compatible with GCT. Regarding patient recent paresthesia, repeated laboratory tests were performed. Finally, according to laboratory results (elevation of serum calcium and parathyroid hormone), ultrasonographic findings and radioisotope scan (Sestamibi), probable parathyroid mass and brown tumor of maxilla was diagnosed. Pathology confirmed hyperplasia of right inferior parathyroid gland. Our case was thought-provoking due to its interesting clinical presentation and unusual presentation of brown tumor in parathyroid hyperplasia.

Frequency, Causes, and Findings of Brain CT Scans of Neonatal Seizure at Besat Hospital, Hamadan, Iran.

Iran J Child Neurol 2015 ;9(1):56-63

Hamadan University of Medical Sciences, Besat Hospital. Hamadan, Iran.

Objective: Neonatal seizures are the most common neurological symptoms and often signal an underlying serious neurologic condition. This study determines the frequency of neonatal seizure, predisposing factors, and brain computed tomography (CT) scan findings.

Materials & Methods: In a descriptive cross-sectional study, we evaluated all neonates with seizures who had been hospitalized in Besat hospital from 2007-2012. All data were gathered with questionnaires and used to compare with statistical tests by SPSS (ver 16).

Results: 141 (4.08%) neonates (M:F; 1:2.2) were diagnosed with neonatal seizures. From the total number of 3,452 neonatal hospitalization, 78% of neonates with seizures were less than 10 days old and 60.3% of infants were born from natural vaginal delivery. As the most common cause, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in this study was associated with 31.3% (n=44) of neonatal seizures and with the highest mortality rate (n=6). Among admitted neonates with seizures, the overall mortality rate was 12.8% (18 cases). A total of 33.3% of patients (47 cases) had abnormal CT scan reports and 24.8% (35 cases) of patients were not evaluated with a CT scan. Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (47%) and local ischemic changes (25.5%) were the most common findings in the CT scans of neonates with seizures.

Conclusion: There was a significant correlation between neonatal seizures and delivery circumstances (p-value < 0.05). Therefore, with improvement of obstetric and delivery circumstances, early detection of predisposing factors and other rare conditions, and rapid effective treatment of these contributing factors, the rate of neonatal seizure in this period can be reduced.

The main etiologies of acute kidney injury in the newborns hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit.

J Clin Neonatol 2014 Apr;3(2):99-102

Department of Pediatrics, Hamadan University of Medical Sciences, Hamedan, IR Iran.

Introduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the most common diseases among the newborns hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), which is usually resulted from predisposing factors including sepsis, hypovolemia, asphyxia, respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), and heart failure. The goal of this study was to assess main etiologies, relevant risk factors, and early outcome of neonatal AKI.

Materials And Methods: In a cross- sectional study, 49 consecutive neonates hospitalized in NICU of Besat hospital with diagnosis of AKI from October 2009 to October 2011 were investigated through census sampling method. AKI was diagnosed based on urine output and serum creatinine levels.

Results: The prevalence of AKI was 1.54% (49 out of 3166 newborns hospitalized in NICU) with the female: male was 7:1. Thirty-nine patients (79.5%) were full-term neonates. Oliguria was observed in 38 (77.5%) patients. Sepsis was the most common predisposing factor for AKI in 77.5% of patients (n = 38) accompanied with the highest mortality rate among other factors (30.5%). Other leading causes of AKI included hypovolemia secondary to dehydration, followed by hypoxia secondary to RDS, patent ductus arteriosus, posterior urethral valve, asphyxia, and renal venous thrombosis. A positive relationship was observed between neonates' age, sex, urine output, and also between serum creatinine levels with initiation of dialysis. The mortality rate among the newborns hospitalized with AKI was 36.7%. Eighteen (36.7%) newborns were treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD) of whom 10 patients (55.6%) died, 31 patients were managed conservatively of whom five neonate died (25.9%).

Discussion: Prognosis of AKI in the oliguric neonates requiring PD is very poor. It is thus recommended to prevent AKI by predicting and rapid diagnosis of AKI in patients with potential risk factors and also by early and effective treatment of such factors in individuals with AKI.

Iran J Neurol 2013 ;12(4):166-8

Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine AND Shariati Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Balo's concentric multiple scleroses (MS) is a rare demyelinating disease and a variant of multiple sclerosis. We report a case with interesting misleading clinical history and typical RI findings of Balo disease. A 19-year-old girl presented with fever and left hemiparesis following dental procedure 15 days ago. On physical examination fever and left limbs forces loss were noted. On CT scan a hypodense mass like area, and in MRI a low T1 and high T2, and flair concentric onion-like partial enhancement of mass in parieto-frontal periventricular white matter was detected. Regarding the findings tumefactive MS, Low grade glioma, lymphoma, and abscess and regarding the history of abscess formation were in differential diagnosis. After therapy and no improvement in clinical condition and MRI findings during 2 months, the patient underwent stereotactic biopsy and tumefactive balo MS was revealed. After 4 months of intensive therapy, the patient was discharged with normal condition.
