Sonographic diagnosis of fetal head deflexion and the risk of cesarean delivery.

Am J Obstet Gynecol MFM 2020 11 18;2(4):100217. Epub 2020 Aug 18.

Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences, Sant'Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Background: Malpositions and deflexed cephalic malpresentations are well recognized causes of dysfunctional labor, may result in fetal and maternal complications, and are diagnosed more precisely with an ultrasound examination than with a digital examination.

Objective: This study aimed to assess the incidence of malpositions and deflexed cephalic malpresentations at the beginning of the second stage of labor and to evaluate the role of the sonographic diagnosis of deflexion in the prediction of the mode of delivery.

Study Design: Women in labor with a singleton pregnancy at term with fetuses in a cephalic presentation at 10 cm of cervical dilatation were prospectively examined. Read More

Chen's Double Eyelid Fold Illusion: An Eye Size Assimilation Illusion Induced by a Supratarsal Fold in the Brow-Eye Unit, A Preliminary Report.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 25;41(6):1375-1381. Epub 2017 Aug 25.

Department of Anesthesiology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Double eyelidplasty can enhance the eye size and facial attractiveness of Asian individuals with single eyelids. The authors hypothesize that a supratarsal fold can induce an eye size assimilation illusion to enhance eye dimensions and aesthetics, and seek to define the optimum vertical proportion between a supratarsal fold and the eye fissure associated with maximal induction of the size assimilation illusion.

Methods: A photometric study of the replicated photographs of ten female Taiwanese patients after double eyelidplasty was designed. Read More

The use of intrapartum ultrasound to diagnose malpositions and cephalic malpresentations.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2017 12 22;217(6):633-641. Epub 2017 Jul 22.

Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Bologna, Policlinico S Orsola-Malpighi, Bologna, Italy.

Fetal malpositions and cephalic malpresentations are well-recognized causes of failure to progress in labor. They frequently require operative delivery, and are associated with an increased probability of fetal and maternal complications. Traditional obstetrics emphasizes the role of digital examinations, but recent studies demonstrated that this approach is inaccurate and intrapartum ultrasound is far more precise. Read More

Intrapartum Ultrasound to Differentiate Flexion and Deflexion in Occipitoposterior Rotation.

Fetal Diagn Ther 2017 12;42(4):249-256. Epub 2017 Apr 12.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Bologna, Policlinico S.Orsola-Malpighi, Bologna, Italy.

Objective: To evaluate the ability of intrapartum ultrasound to differentiate occipitoposterior (OP) rotation with normal flexion of the head from deflexion, to compare the accuracy of ultrasound with the digital examination, and to assess the outcome of labor according to the type of presentation.

Patients And Methods: A retrospective study of patients with abnormal labor because of either prolongation and/or abnormal cardiotocography and OP rotation who underwent intrapartum sonography.

Results: Normal flexion was inferred in 36/42 cases by a longitudinal sonographic view of the fetal face demonstrating the chin approaching the chest. Read More

Inflammatory pseudotumor of eyelid: a probable IgG4-related sclerosing disease clinically mimicking eyelid pilomatrixoma.

BMC Ophthalmol 2015 Mar 8;15:23. Epub 2015 Mar 8.

Department of Pathology, Seoul Metropolitan Government Seoul National University Boramae Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Ocular adnexal IgG4-related sclerosing disease (IgG4-SD) has been categorized as a novel disease entity. It is characterized by stromal sclerosis and an infiltration of mass-forming lymphoplasmic cells containing many IgG4-positive plasma cells.

Comparing face processing strategies between typically-developed observers and observers with autism using sub-sampled-pixels presentation in response classification technique.

Vision Res 2013 Mar 12;79:27-35. Epub 2013 Jan 12.

National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba Central 6, 1-1-1 Higashi, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-8566, Japan.

In the present study we modified the standard classification image method by subsampling visual stimuli to provide us with a technique capable of examining an individual's face-processing strategy in detail with fewer trials. Experiment 1 confirmed that one testing session (1450 trials) was sufficient to produce classification images that were qualitatively similar to those obtained previously with 10,000 trials (Sekuler et al., 2004).

Two anomalous localizations of mucocele: clinical presentation and retrospective review.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2007 Aug;27(4):208-11

Department of Ophthalmology, Maggiore Hospital, Bologna, Italy.

Two Caucasian males (57 and 70 years old) were referred to our attention with parasinus mucoceles, maxillary and frontal mucocele, respectively, that had eroded the orbital rim and caused swelling of the eyelids and brow. Invasion of the orbital space caused several ophthalmic symptoms such as diplopia, proptosis, ptosis, and the formation of a palpable mass. Ophthalmic involvement was the first sign of the mucocele.

A population study of face and brow presentation.

J Obstet Gynaecol 1998 May;18(3):231-5

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University Hospital of Wales NHS Trust, Cardiff, UK.

This was a retrospective review of the experience of face and brow presentation deliveries in South Glamorgan between 1990 and 1996. The incidence of face and brow presentation was 1 in 994 and 1 in 755 deliveries respectively (no cases of cranial vault anomalies in this series). There was a higher incidence of prematurity and very low birthweight among infants delivered by face presentation and higher incidence of postmaturity among those delivered by brow when compared with the vertex population in the same period.

Relationship between visual evoked potentials and subjective differences between emotional expressions in "face diagrams".

Neurosci Behav Physiol 2001 Sep-Oct;31(5):529-38

Department of Psychology, M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University.

The relationship between visual evoked potentials resulting from substitution of one image of a human "face diagram" for another and assessment of perceived differences between the emotional expressions of these faces were studied. Emotions were altered by changing the curvature of the mouth and/or the slope of the brows. Unlike the traditional approach, in which visual evoked potentials are recorded in response to presentation of a single stimulus bearing a face image, visual evoked potentials in the present study were recorded as the response to instantaneous substitution of a reference stimulus with a test stimulus, and thus represented the direct response to the difference between the stimuli.

The role of tissue expansion in the management of large congenital pigmented nevi of the forehead in the pediatric patient.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2001 Mar;107(3):668-75

Division of Plastic Surgery, Children's Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

The authors present a cohort of 21 consecutive patients who had congenital pigmented nevi covering 15 to 65 percent of the forehead and adjacent scalp and who were treated at their institution within the last 12 years. All patients were treated with an expansion of the adjacent texture- and color-matched skin as the primary modality of treatment. The median age at presentation was approximately 1 year; mean postoperative follow-up was 4 years. Read More
