Adjustable Posterior Fixation Suture Technique in Adjustable Superior Rectus Transposition.

J Binocul Vis Ocul Motil 2018 Oct-Dec;68(4):154-155. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

a Jules Stein Eye Institute and Department of Ophthalmology , University of California , Los Angeles , California.

Background: Recently, the superior rectus transposition has been widely adopted for the treatment of complete abducens palsy and Duane syndrome. This procedure is useful in that there is a decreased risk of anterior segment ischemia compared to complete vertical rectus transposition, possibly decreased incidence of postoperative-induced vertical deviations than complete vertical rectus transposition, and improvement in abduction compared to simple medial rectus recession. One difficulty with this procedure is the lack of adjustability in most patients. Read More

The teratogenic effects of thalidomide on limbs.

Authors:
Neil Vargesson

J Hand Surg Eur Vol 2019 Jan 18;44(1):88-95. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK.

Thalidomide remains notorious as a result of the damage it caused to children born to mothers who used it to treat morning sickness between 1957 and 1961. The re-emergence of the drug to treat a range of conditions including erythema nodosum leprosum (a complication of leprosy) has led to a new generation of thalidomide damaged children being born in Brazil. Although thalidomide affects most of the developing tissues and organs of the body, the damage to the limbs is striking. Read More

Ptosis in childhood: A clinical sign of several disorders: Case series reports and literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(36):e12124

Department of Pediatrics, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Blepharoptosis (ptosis) is a common but often overlooked sign that may serve as a sign/manifestation of other conditions, ranging from a mild and purely cosmetic presentation to a severe and occasionally progressive disorder. Ptosis may show an acute onset or may manifest as a chronic disorder. Its presentation may vary: unilateral versus bilateral, progressive versus non-progressive, isolated versus complex which occurs in association with other symptoms, and congenital versus acquired (often concomitant with neuromuscular disorders).

Cranial motor nuclei in the brainstem innervate diverse types of head and neck muscles. Failure in establishing these neuromuscular connections causes congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs) characterized by abnormal craniofacial movements. However, mechanisms that link cranial motor nuclei to target muscles are poorly understood at the molecular level. Read More

Thalidomide promotes degradation of SALL4, a transcription factor implicated in Duane Radial Ray syndrome.

Elife 2018 08 1;7. Epub 2018 Aug 1.

Department of Cancer Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, United States.

In historical attempts to treat morning sickness, use of the drug thalidomide led to the birth of thousands of children with severe birth defects. Despite their teratogenicity, thalidomide and related IMiD drugs are now a mainstay of cancer treatment; however, the molecular basis underlying the pleiotropic biology and characteristic birth defects remains unknown. Here we show that IMiDs disrupt a broad transcriptional network through induced degradation of several CH zinc finger transcription factors, including SALL4, a member of the -like family of developmental transcription factors.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 30;256(12):2467-2471. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Department of Ophthalmology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 81 Irwon-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 06351, South Korea.

Background: We questioned how to treat for intermittent exotropia in type 1 Duane's retraction syndrome (DRS). To avoid secondary abduction deficit and late overcorrection on the affected eye following ipsilateral lateral rectus (LR) recession, we performed less correction of the lateral rectus (LR) recession to correct exodeviation and anomalous head position (AHP). We report the surgical outcomes of LR recession in patients with unilateral type 1 DRS. Read More

Background: After a person has been injured, prehospital administration of plasma in addition to the initiation of standard resuscitation procedures in the prehospital environment may reduce the risk of downstream complications from hemorrhage and shock. Data from large clinical trials are lacking to show either the efficacy or the risks associated with plasma transfusion in the prehospital setting.

Methods: To determine the efficacy and safety of prehospital administration of thawed plasma in injured patients who are at risk for hemorrhagic shock, we conducted a pragmatic, multicenter, cluster-randomized, phase 3 superiority trial that compared the administration of thawed plasma with standard-care resuscitation during air medical transport.

A mutation in transcription factor MAFB causes Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis with Duane Retraction Syndrome.

Kidney Int 2018 Aug 18;94(2):396-407. Epub 2018 May 18.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Showa University Fujigaoka Hospital, Fujigaoka, Japan.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a leading cause of end-stage renal disease in children and adults. Genetic factors significantly contribute to early-onset FSGS, but the etiologies of most adult cases remain unknown. Genetic studies of monogenic syndromic FSGS exhibiting extra-renal manifestations have uncovered an unexpected biological role for genes in the development of both podocytes and other cellular lineages.

Alternating Hypotropia with Pseudoptosis: A New Phenotype of Congenital Cranial Dysinnervation Disorder.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2018 Jan-Apr;9(1):96-101. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Ivey Eye Institute, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.

Congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders, also known as CCDDs, are characterized by aberrant innervation to extraocular and facial muscles resulting in unusual forms of incomitant strabismus. Anomalous innervation to extraocular muscles can result in a wide variety of phenotypes causing various clinical conditions such as Duane syndrome, congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles, and Möbius syndrome. We report a case of bilateral dysinnervation disorder causing atypical ocular movements in both eyes as the patient changes fixation from one eye to the other and from right gaze to left gaze that fits with the wider diagnosis of CCDDs.

Duane retraction syndrome: causes, effects and management strategies.

Clin Ophthalmol 2017 30;11:1917-1930. Epub 2017 Oct 30.

Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Services, Child Sight Institute, Jasti V Ramannama Children's Eye Care Center, KAR Campus, Hyderabad, India.

Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) is a congenital eye movement anomaly characterized by variable horizontal duction deficits, with narrowing of the palpebral fissure and globe retraction on attempted adduction, occasionally accompanied by upshoot or down-shoot. The etiopathogenesis of this condition can be explained by a spectrum of mechanical, innervational, neurologic and genetic abnormalities occurring independently or which influence each other giving rise to patterns of clinical presentations along with a complex set of ocular and systemic anomalies. Huber type I DRS is the most common form of DRS with an earlier presentation, while Huber type II is the least common presentation. Read More

Therapeutic intervention is an important need in ameliorating the severe consequences of Rett Syndrome (RTT), a neurological disorder caused by mutations in the X-linked gene methyl-CpG-binding protein-2 (MeCP2). Following previously observed morphological defects in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons obtained from female RTT patients, we hypothesized that transfection with the L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1) could contribute to normalizing a pathological male cell system bearing a nonsense mutation of MeCP2. We found a decreased expression of L1 in RTT iPSCs-derived neural precursor cells (RTT NPCs) and decreased neuritogenesis. Read More

Imaging of Cranial Nerves III, IV, VI in Congenital Cranial Dysinnervation Disorders.

Korean J Ophthalmol 2017 Jun 12;31(3):183-193. Epub 2017 May 12.

Department of Ophthalmology, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seongnam, Korea.

Congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders are a group of diseases caused by abnormal development of cranial nerve nuclei or their axonal connections, resulting in aberrant innervation of the ocular and facial musculature. Its diagnosis could be facilitated by the development of high resolution thin-section magnetic resonance imaging. The purpose of this review is to describe the method to visualize cranial nerves III, IV, and VI and to present the imaging findings of congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders including congenital oculomotor nerve palsy, congenital trochlear nerve palsy, Duane retraction syndrome, Möbius syndrome, congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles, synergistic divergence, and synergistic convergence.

Postoperative full abduction in a patient of Duane retraction syndrome without an abducens nerve: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2017 May 19;17(1):75. Epub 2017 May 19.

Department of Ophthalmology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, 166, Gumiro, Bundang-gu, Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do, 463-707, Korea.

Background: Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) consists of abduction deficit, globe retraction and upshoots or downshoots with adduction. The abducens nerve on the affected side is absent in type 1 DRS. After bilateral medial rectus muscle recession in unilateral type 1 DRS may improve the abduction limitation, but still more than -3 limitation remains. Read More

Ocular congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs): insights into axon growth and guidance.

Hum Mol Genet 2017 08;26(R1):R37-R44

F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Unraveling the genetics of the paralytic strabismus syndromes known as congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs) is both informing physicians and their patients and broadening our understanding of development of the ocular motor system. Genetic mutations underlying ocular CCDDs alter either motor neuron specification or motor nerve development, and highlight the importance of modulations of cell signaling, cytoskeletal transport, and microtubule dynamics for axon growth and guidance. Here we review recent advances in our understanding of two CCDDs, congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles (CFEOM) and Duane retraction syndrome (DRS), and discuss what they have taught us about mechanisms of axon guidance and selective vulnerability.

Mutant α2-chimaerin signals via bidirectional ephrin pathways in Duane retraction syndrome.

J Clin Invest 2017 May 27;127(5):1664-1682. Epub 2017 Mar 27.

Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) is the most common form of congenital paralytic strabismus in humans and can result from α2-chimaerin (CHN1) missense mutations. We report a knockin α2-chimaerin mouse (Chn1KI/KI) that models DRS. Whole embryo imaging of Chn1KI/KI mice revealed stalled abducens nerve growth and selective trochlear and first cervical spinal nerve guidance abnormalities. Read More

Traumatic colon injury in damage control laparotomy-A multicenter trial: Is it safe to do a delayed anastomosis?

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2017 04;82(4):742-749

From the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (L.T.), Chicago, Illinois; Parkland Health and Hospital System (A.J., K.T., S.L.), Dallas, Texas; Baylor University Medical Center (A.H., P.P., M.S., T.D., G.O.O., L.B.P.), Dallas, Texas; John Peter Smith Health Network (R.R.G., T.M.D.), Fort Worth, Texas; and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (S.L.) Dallas, Texas.

Background: Delayed colonic anastomosis after damage control laparotomy (DCL) is an alternative to colostomies during a single laparotomy (SL) in high-risk patients. However, literature suggests increased colonic leak rates up to 27% with DCL, and various reported risk factors. We evaluated our regional experience to determine if delayed colonic anastomosis was associated with worse outcomes. Read More

Dysfibrinogenemia and multiple sclerosis: spuriously associated or causally linked?

Hippokratia 2017 Jan-Mar;21(1):49-51

Pathology Department of Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York.

Background: The inherited dysfibrinogenemias comprise rare congenital coagulation disorders which are clinically characterized by bleeding diathesis and, in occasional patients, by thrombotic tendency or combined bleeding-thrombotic events. In recent years, accumulating evidence suggested that fibrinogen has a critical role in the pathogenesis of neuroinflammatory disorders, including multiple sclerosis. We describe the presentation and long-term follow-up of a patient with inherited dysfibrinogenemia and concomitant clinical and laboratory evidence of demyelinating disease. Read More
