Urgent cholecystectomy in patient with left-sided gallbladder Case report and review of the literature.

Ann Ital Chir 2020 May 25;9. Epub 2020 May 25.

Introduction: Sinistroposition of the gallbladder, or true left-sided gallbladder (LSG) without situs viscerum inversus, is a rare congenital anatomical variant where the gallbladder is located to the left of round/falciform ligament. It can be associated with anomalies of the biliary tree, portal system and hepatic vascularization. The surgical management of a LSG could be challenging even for an experienced operator, being usually an incidental intraoperative finding. Read More

Rare variants in dynein heavy chain genes in two individuals with situs inversus and developmental dyslexia: a case report.

BMC Med Genet 2020 May 1;21(1):87. Epub 2020 May 1.

Department of Medicine, Solna, Karolinska Institutet, Solnavägen 30, 171 76 Solna, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Developmental dyslexia (DD) is a neurodevelopmental learning disorder with high heritability. A number of candidate susceptibility genes have been identified, some of which are linked to the function of the cilium, an organelle regulating left-right asymmetry development in the embryo. Furthermore, it has been suggested that disrupted left-right asymmetry of the brain may play a role in neurodevelopmental disorders such as DD. Read More

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura in a patient with situs inversus totalis: case report and literature review.

Einstein (Sao Paulo) 2020 10;18:eRC5111. Epub 2020 Jan 10.

Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Situs inversus totalis is a rare recessive autosomal congenital abnormality in which the mediastinal and abdominal organs are in a mirrored position when compared to the usual topography. The literature reports some cases of situs inversus totalis and concomitant conditions: spinal abnormalities, cardiac malformations and hematological diseases, such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, which is an autoimmune disease that causes thrombocytopenia due to platelet destruction or suppression of its production. This article aimed to report the coexistence of situs inversus totalis and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Read More

Incidental Finding of Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus in a 59-Year-Old Man.

Case Rep Radiol 2019 1;2019:7107293. Epub 2019 Dec 1.

Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, School of Allied Health Sciences, College of Health and Allied Sciences, University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast, Ghana.

Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a rare congenital anomaly, which is characterized by right-sided heart apex and inversely rotated visceral organs of the abdomen. We report an unusual case of dextrocardia with situs inversus in a 59-year-old man, referred for a pelvic ultrasound scan because of symptoms of lower urinary tract obstruction and after a fairly normal prostate specific antigen (PSA) value. A diagnosis of enlarged prostate gland with a prominent median lobe and significant residual urine volume was made, which necessitated the examination of the kidneys for hydronephrosis, resulting in the incidental finding of situs inversus.

Evolution of cerebral asymmetry.

Prog Brain Res 2019 24;250:153-178. Epub 2019 May 24.

School of Psychology, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand. Electronic address:

The human brain is often characterized in terms of a duality, with the left and right brains serving complementary functions, and even individuals are sometimes classified as either "left-brained" or "right-brained." Recent evidence from brain imaging shows that hemispheric asymmetry is multidimensional, comprised of independent lateralized circuits. Cerebral asymmetries, which include handedness, probably arise in phylogenesis through the fissioning of ancestral systems that divided and lateralized with increasing demand for specialization.

Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of pancreas in a patient of situs inversus totalis.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Aug 28;12(8). Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Surgical Gastroenterology, SGPGIMS, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) in a case of situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare occurrence with only one case being reported until now in the literature. SIT presents a technical challenge for the operating surgeon in view of the reversed anatomy hence the operating surgeon should orient himself of the altered anatomy of SIT before contemplating surgery. To the best of our knowledge, spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy in a patient of SPN with SIT has not been reported until now. Read More

Deciphering normal and anomalous viscero-atrial situs on multidetector CT angiography.

Br J Radiol 2019 Oct 10;92(1102):20190231. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Department of Cardiovascular Radiology and Endovascular Interventions, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Viscero-atrial situs encompasses the laterality, relative position and configuration of the abdominal viscera, the atria of the heart and the tracheobronchial tree. Determining the situs and cardiac position is the first step in the commonly used sequential, segmental approach to the imaging evaluation of congenital heart defects (CHD). Abnormalities of visceroatrial situs and cardiac position are frequently associated with the presence of complex CHDs and accurate assessment of situs abnormalities can help predict the probability and type of the defect.

Dextrocardia with complete AV block and the implantation of a temporary pacemaker before cesarean section: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Apr;98(17):e15211

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Rationale: Patients with situs inversus totalis (SIT) and complete atrioventricular (AV) block are extremely rare, and only few cases have been reported up to now. Due to the rarity of such condition and its anatomical complexity, we reported this case as a reference for obstetricians, providing valuable insights into potential clinical treatment.

Patient Concerns: We reported a case of 30-year-old patient with complete AV block, and her heart rate was only about 45 beats per minute. Read More

Genome sequencing for rightward hemispheric language dominance.

Genes Brain Behav 2019 06 23;18(5):e12572. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Language and Genetics Department, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Most people have left-hemisphere dominance for various aspects of language processing, but only roughly 1% of the adult population has atypically reversed, rightward hemispheric language dominance (RHLD). The genetic-developmental program that underlies leftward language laterality is unknown, as are the causes of atypical variation. We performed an exploratory whole-genome-sequencing study, with the hypothesis that strongly penetrant, rare genetic mutations might sometimes be involved in RHLD. Read More

Pipeline embolization device implantation in large carotid cavernous aneurysm associated with situs inversus totalis.

Interv Neuroradiol 2019 Aug 21;25(4):434-437. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

3 Department of Neurosurgery, Juntendo University Faculty of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Situs anomalies are a heterogenous class of inborn visceral and vascular abnormalities with a broad range of radiographic characteristics. Situs inversus totalis is characterized by mirror image location of the heart and viscera relative to situs solitus (normal position). Few aberrations involving the neuraxis, and rarely intracranial aneurysms, have been reported in association with situs inversus totalis. Read More

The First Report of Laparoscopic Pancreaticoduodenectomy for Primary Duodenal Carcinoma in a Patient With Situs Inversus Totalis: Report of a Rare Case.

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2019 Jun;29(3):e29-e33

Departments of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery.

Background: Situs inversus (SI) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by the transposition of thoracic and abdominal viscera. Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) is increasingly used in patients with periampullar and pancreatic carcinomas. For patients with SI, LPD can be more complicated because of reversed anatomy and possible other associated anomalies that have not been expected before surgery. Read More

Duodenoscope combined with laparoscopy in treatment of biliary stones for a patient with situs inversus totalis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(7):e14272

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.

Rationale: Although endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques in situs inversus totalis (SIT) have been reported respectively, endo-laparoscopic combination therapy due to biliary lithiasis remains infrequent. We shared the experience regarding the operations with a video report and discussed the similarities and differences with the usual procedures, which proved to be challenging to some extent for SIT.

Patient Concerns: Herein we present a 72-year-old man with SIT who underwent endo-laparscopic combination therapy due to choledocholithiasis and gallbladder stone. Read More
