Bone wax migrates to the orbit in a patient with a frontal sinus abnormality: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 24;19(1):29. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Ophthalmology, the 2nd Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, 410011, Hunan Province, China.

Background: Bone wax is the most widely used hemostatic bone sealant because of its availability, ease of use, immediate action, and minimal adverse effects. Several complications have been reported to be associated with the use of bone wax, such as infection, osteohypertrophy, pain, granuloma formation, allergic reaction, and thrombosis. Here, we present a rare complication, namely, bone wax migration, which developed after a craniotomy on a patient who had a frontal sinus abnormality. Read More

Early-onset of symptoms and clinical course of Pompe disease associated with the c.-32-13 T > G variant.

Mol Genet Metab 2019 Feb 23;126(2):106-116. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Division of Medical Genetics, Department of Pediatrics, Duke University Medical Center, 905 S. LaSalle street, GSRB1, Durham, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Individuals with late-onset Pompe disease (LOPD) and the common c.-32-13 T > G variant are widely thought to have milder, adult-onset disease. This belief, and the consequent low suspicion of clinical involvement in children, has led to delays in diagnosis and treatment initiation in patients with early onset of symptoms. Read More

Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale della Lombardia e dell'Emilia Romagna (IZSLER), 25124 Brescia, Italy.

Mycobacterium genavense infection was diagnosed in an adult ferret with ptosis of the left eye, a proliferative lesion of the conjunctiva of the nictitating membrane, conjunctival swelling, and tumefaction of the periorbital tissues with a watery ocular discharge and the presence of a retrobulbar mass. The diagnosis was based on characteristic cytology of the retrobulbar mass and left mandibular lymph node that revealed granulomatous inflammation. Ziehl-Neelsen staining showed the presence of positive acid-fast bacilli in the cytoplasm of the macrophages. Read More

Measuring chordae tension during transapical neochordae implantation: Toward understanding objective consequences of mitral valve repair.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Oct 17. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Adult Cardiac Surgery, Hôpital cardiologique Louis Pradel, Lyon Medical School, Bron, France.

Objectives: Complex structure of mitral valve and its central position in the heart limit assessment of mitral function to standardized calculated parameters assessed using medical imaging (echocardiography). Novel techniques, which allow mitral valve repair (MVr) in a beating heart, offer the opportunity for innovative objective assessment in physiologic and pathologic conditions. We report, to our knowledge, the first data of real-time chordal tension measurement during a transapical neochordae implantation. Read More

Transition of care: a growing concern in adult patients born with colorectal anomalies.

Pediatr Surg Int 2019 Feb 3;35(2):233-237. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, International Center for Colorectal and Urogenital Care, Children's Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado, 13123 East 16th Avenue, Anschutz Medical Campus, Box 323, Aurora, CO, 80045, USA.

Purpose: Traditionally, the care of children and adults has been arbitrarily separated into pediatric and adult medicine and surgery. Despite progress in pediatric surgical techniques, patients born with congenital anomalies still suffer from significant functional sequelae, which persist into adulthood. We aim to describe some of the most common problems experienced by adult patients with congenital colorectal malformations. Read More

Omental and deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap coverage after heart transplantation to manage wide left ventricular assist device exposure with pocket infection.

J Artif Organs 2018 Dec 22;21(4):466-470. Epub 2018 Oct 22.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Infection is a serious potential complication after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. In general, infection of the device pocket, with device exposure, should be managed by early device removal and heart transplantation. However, because of the small number of donors in Japan, accelerating access to heart transplantation is often difficult and the LVAD can be widely exposed during the waiting period. Read More

Conservative treatment cures an elderly pituitary apoplexy patient with oculomotor paralysis and optic nerve compression: a case report and systematic review of the literature.

Clin Interv Aging 2018 12;13:1981-1985. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China,

Background: Whether conservative treatment or surgical management is the most appropriate treatment for pituitary apoplexy (PA) is controversial. In general, if severe symptoms of compression occur, such as oculomotor nerve palsy, neurosurgery is performed to relieve the compression of anatomical structures near the PA.

Case Description: We describe the case of a 79-year-old man who was found to have an intrasellar pituitary incidentaloma. Read More

Degrees of Diaphragma Sellae Descent during Transsphenoidal Pituitary Adenoma Resection: Predictive Factors and Effect on Outcome.

Curr Med Sci 2018 Oct 20;38(5):888-893. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430022, China.

This study is aimed to classify degrees of diaphragma sellae (DS) descent into sella turcica according to the surgical field block caused by the descent and to construct predictive imaging criteria for the degree of descent, and in addition, to determine whether there is any correlation between the degree of DS descent and the operative outcome (in the form of cerebrospinal fluid leak and/or presence of residual tumor). Totally, 72 patients were enrolled in our study. Their clinical and radiological data as well as the high definition videos of operations were retrospectively reviewed. Read More
