The rhinologist's role in the management of rathke's cleft cysts.

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2019 Feb;27(1):67-71

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadephia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Purpose Of Review: To review the recent literature regarding the growing role of rhinologists and otolaryngologists with neurosurgeons in the joint multidisciplinary team approach for managing patients with Rathke's cleft cysts (RCC).

Recent Findings: The transnasal endoscopic approach to the skull base has become relatively mainstream for surgical treatment of RCCs. Suprasellar lesions, especially those that are purely suprasellar, are associated with higher recurrence rates, though an extended approach may improve dissection and access and therefore aid in lesion removal.

First Report of the Yellow Nutsedge Cyst Nematode, , in Georgia, U.S.A.

J Nematol 2018 ;50(3):456-458

California Department of Food and Agriculture, Plant Pest Diagnostic Center, Sacramento, California, 95832.

Soil samples collected during a survey for plant-parasitic nematodes in Tift County GA in summer 2017 were submitted for routine diagnosis of nematodes to the Extension Nematology Lab at the Department of Plant Pathology, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia. Cyst nematodes recovered by centrifugal flotation technique were discovered in the samples from two research sites in a field with a history of tobacco and vegetable production. Cyst nematodes from tobacco (10 cysts/100 cm 3 of soil) and vegetable (2 cysts/100 cm 3 of soil) sites had similar morphological features. Read More

Acetabular Labral Tears Are Common in Asymptomatic Contralateral Hips With Femoroacetabular Impingement.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

The Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: The number of patients undergoing hip arthroscopy for labral tears has increased, but labral tears are sometimes seen in asymptomatic patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). The frequency of this finding, however, has not been well characterized nor is the proportion of patients with previously asymptomatic labral tears who may later become symptomatic.

Questions/purposes: The purpose of this study was to determine (1) the prevalence of labral tears and other intraarticular pathology in the asymptomatic contralateral hip of patients undergoing surgery for symptomatic FAI; (2) the likelihood that the asymptomatic hip had become symptomatic at latest followup; and (3) any association between MRI findings and age, sex, and body mass index (BMI) in both symptomatic and asymptomatic sides.

Minimally Invasive Management of Zinner's Syndrome with Same-Session Robot-Assisted Seminal Vesiculectomy and Ipsilateral Nephroureterectomy Using a Single Geometry of Trocars.

J Endourol Case Rep 2018 7;4(1):186-189. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Urology, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Seminal vesicle cyst is an extremely rare condition, which is frequently congenital and associated with Zinner's syndrome. This syndrome represents a constellation of seminal vesicle cyst, ipsilateral or contralateral renal agenesis or renal dysplasia, ureteral ectopia, and ejaculatory duct obstruction. We report a young symptomatic patient undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic excision of a huge seminal vesicle cyst during which an atrophic ipsilateral kidney was discovered incidentally and managed by nephroureterectomy in the same session without changing trocar positions.

Endogenous Ovarian Angiogenesis in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome-Like Rats Induced by Low-Frequency Electro-Acupuncture: The CLARITY Three-Dimensional Approach.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Nov 7;19(11). Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Integrative Medicine and Neurobiology, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Institutes of Brain Science, Brain Science Collaborative Innovation Center, State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology, Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Fudan Institutes of Integrative Medicine, Fudan University, Shanghai 200032, China.

We sought to determine the role of ovarian vascularity and neo-angiogenesis in the development of mature follicles in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and to identify any changes induced by low-frequency electro-acupuncture (EA). Twenty-eight 21-day-old female Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups-Control, Obesity, PCOS-like, and PCOS-like-EA (n = 7/group). Rats in the Obesity group were fed a high-fat diet throughout the experiment. Read More
