Genome sequencing for rightward hemispheric language dominance.

Genes Brain Behav 2019 Apr 4:e12572. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

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

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

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a clinical rare peculiar disorder, mainly featured by respiratory infection, tympanitis, nasosinusitis, and male infertility. Previous study demonstrated it is an autosomal recessive disease and by 2017 almost 40 pathologic genes have been identified. Among them are the leucine-rich repeat- (LRR-) containing 6 (LRRC6) codes for a 463-amino-acid cytoplasmic protein, expressed distinctively in motile cilia cells, including the testis cells and the respiratory epithelial cells.

Catheter ablation of premature ventricular contractions originating from aortic sinus cusps in a patient with dextrocardia and situs solitus: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Dec;96(48):e8947

Hangzhou First People's Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, Zhejiang Chinese Medical University, Shangcheng District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

Background: Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) originating from aortic sinus cusps is not infrequent and can be eliminated effectively by radiofrequency ablation with rare complications. However, after a review of the medical literature, and to our knowledge, this is the first case of successful idiopathic aortic sinus cusps-PVC-ablation using a 3-dimensional (3D) mapping system in an adult with dextrocardia.

Methods: A 62-year-old male with dextrocardia and situs inversus underwent catheter ablation of frequent PVCs. Read More

Brain structural and functional asymmetry in human situs inversus totalis.

Brain Struct Funct 2018 May 4;223(4):1937-1952. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

School of Clinical Sciences, Clinical Research Imaging Centre (CRIC), University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK.

Magnetic resonance imaging was used to investigate brain structural and functional asymmetries in 15 participants with complete visceral reversal (situs inversus totalis, SIT). Language-related brain structural and functional lateralization of SIT participants, including peri-Sylvian gray and white matter asymmetries and hemispheric language dominance, was similar to those of 15 control participants individually matched for sex, age, education, and handedness. In contrast, the SIT cohort showed reversal of the brain (Yakovlevian) torque (occipital petalia and occipital bending) compared to the control group. Read More

Laparoscopic hemicolectomy for a patient with situs inversus totalis: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 16;41:93-96. Epub 2017 Oct 16.

Department of Surgical Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the left and right aspects of the thoracic and intra-abdominal organs are inverted, like a mirror image. Surgical procedures in a patients with SIT is difficult as their anatomy is abnormal. In particular, laparoscopic procedures are considered more difficult in patients with SIT because of the mirror-image anatomy. Read More

Polysplenia syndrome with duodenal and pancreatic dysplasia in a Holstein calf: a case report.

BMC Vet Res 2017 Sep 29;13(1):292. Epub 2017 Sep 29.

Division of Basic Veterinary Medicine, Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, Obihiro, Hokkaido, Japan.

Background: Laterality disorders of the abdominal organs include situs inversus totalis that mirrors the arrangements of all internal organs and heterotaxy syndrome (situs ambiguus) in which the thoracic or abdominal organs are abnormally arranged. Heterotaxy is often accompanied by multiple congenital malformations, and it generally comprises asplenia and polysplenia syndromes. To our knowledge, polysplenia syndrome has been reported in only three cattle, and computerized tomographic (CT) images of these animals were not obtained. Read More
