Hernia 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Minimally Invasive Paediatric Surgery Centre, Room 1105, 11/F, Nathan Road, Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Background: Open herniotomy has been the gold standard of pediatric hernia treatment with the advantages of simplicity in surgical technique, fast post operative recovery, and minimal recurrence rate, but its inability to prevent hernia development from a contralateral patent processus vaginalis (PPV) after a unilateral herniotomy is its major drawback. By contrast, laparoscopic hernia repair has the advantage of contralateral internal ring inspection, and, therefore, has become popular in recent years, although open herniotomy is still the favorable surgical technique among many surgeons. A simple and reliable tool to detect contralateral PPV will be valuable to surgeons who practice conventional open hernia surgery on children, although ultrasound has been applied for this purpose, but there is no long-term data to support such application.

Individualized minimally invasive treatment for adult testicular hydrocele: A pilot study.

World J Clin Cases 2019 Mar;7(6):727-733

Shengli Clinical Medical College of Fujian Medical University, Fuzhou 350001, Fujian Province, China.

Background: Hydrocelectomy is the gold standard for the treatment of hydrocele, but it often causes complications after surgery, including hematoma, infection, persistent swelling, hydrocele recurrence, and chronic pain. In recent years, several methods for minimally invasive treatment of hydrocele have been introduced, but they all have limitations. Herein, we introduce a new method of individualized minimally invasive treatment for hydrocele. Read More

Front Physiol 2019 15;10:258. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Molecular Medicine and Medical Biotechnologies, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.

PIEZO1 is a cation channel activated by mechanical force. It plays an important physiological role in several biological processes such as cardiovascular, renal, endothelial and hematopoietic systems. Two different diseases are associated with alteration in the DNA sequence of : (i) dehydrated hereditary stomatocytosis (DHS1, #194380), an autosomal dominant hemolytic anemia caused by gain-of-function mutations; (ii) lymphatic dysplasia with non-immune fetal hydrops (LMPH3, #616843), an autosomal recessive condition caused by biallelic loss-of-function mutations.

Atypical testicular pain.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Feb 19;12(2). Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Urological Surgery, Wexham Park Hospital, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Frimley, UK.

Testicular tuberculosis (TB) is rare, and, because of this, the lack of pathognomonic clinical features and its tendency to mimic other commoner conditions, the diagnosis is frequently delayed or may be missed. In this case, the initial clinical presentation was typical for bacterial epididymo-orchitis in a 38-year-old man. When the patient failed to improve with standard treatment including broadening of antibiotics, the diagnosis was re-considered because some unusual signs suggested testicular malignancy or lymphoma.

Department of Histopathology, PathLinks, Lincoln County Hospital, Greetwell Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, UK.

Benign multicystic mesothelioma is an extremely rare neoplasm usually arising from the visceral mesothelium of the peritoneal cavity typically presenting in young to middle-aged women. It has been deemed an indolent tumour with a possible heritable nature, but also a possible reactive neoplasm secondary to trauma. Diagnosis relies on identifying characteristic histology of cysts separated by loose connective tissue stroma and lined by pale, flat or cuboidal mesothelial cells. Read More

Centre for Infection Medicine, Institute of Immunology, Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is a parasitic infection, caused by three closely related nematodes, namely , , and . Previously, we have shown that lysate from microfilariae induces the expression of interleukin and programmed death-ligand on monocytes, which lead to inhibition of CD4 T-cell responses. In this study, we investigated associations of and programmed cell death pathway gene polymorphisms with clinical manifestation in LF. Read More

Mhealth 2018 26;4:49. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases, Department of Parasitology, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Liverpool, UK.

Background: Lymphatic filariasis (LF) and podoconiosis are disabling diseases, endemic in Ethiopia. The main clinical manifestations include lymphoedema from LF and podoconiosis, and hydrocoele from LF. To ensure access to morbidity management and disability prevention (MMDP) services, data on patient numbers in each implementation unit (IU) is required. Read More

Lymphatic filariasis transmission in Rufiji District, southeastern Tanzania: infection status of the human population and mosquito vectors after twelve rounds of mass drug administration.

Parasit Vectors 2018 Nov 13;11(1):588. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

WHO Regional Office for Africa, Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo.

Background: Control of lymphatic filariasis (LF) in most of the sub-Saharan African countries is based on annual mass drug administration (MDA) using a combination of ivermectin and albendazole. Monitoring the impact of this intervention is crucial for measuring the success of the LF elimination programmes. This study assessed the status of LF infection in Rufiji district, southeastern Tanzania after twelve rounds of MDA. Read More

The prevalence of lymphatic filariasis infection and disease following six rounds of mass drug administration in Mandalay Region, Myanmar.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2018 11 12;12(11):e0006944. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

College of Medicine & Dentistry, Division of Tropical Health and Medicine, James Cook University, Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

Lymphatic filariasis is widely endemic in Myanmar. Despite the establishment of an elimination program in 2000, knowledge of the remaining burden of disease relies predominantly on programmatic information. To assist the program, we conducted an independent cross-sectional household cluster survey to determine the prevalence of filariasis infection, morbidity and mass-drug administration coverage in four townships of the Mandalay Region: Amarapura, Patheingyi, Tada-U and Wundwin.

Hydrocelectomy via scrotal incision is a valuable alternative to the traditional inguinal approach for hydrocele treatment in boys.

Investig Clin Urol 2018 11 24;59(6):416-421. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Urology, Chonnam National University Medical School, Gwangju, Korea.

Purpose: Few studies have explored the treatment of isolated communicating hydroceles via scrotal incision. We prospectively evaluated the surgical outcomes of such treatment in boys with hydroceles compared with that using traditional, inguinal incision hydrocelectomy.

Materials And Methods: Of 347 boys aged 0-12 years who were diagnosed as hydrocele on ultrasonography, 173 boys were assigned to the scrotal incision hydrocelectomy group (group I, n=173) and 172 boys were assigned to the traditional inguinal incision hydrocelectomy group (group II, n=172), and finally 156 boys in group I and 156 boys in group II were included in this study.
