Laparoscopic One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass in a Patient with Morbid Obesity and Situs Inversus Totalis: a Case Report.

Obes Surg 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Laparoscopy Research Center, Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Background: Laparoscopic one-anastomosis gastric bypass is a new bariatric surgery technique for weight loss in morbid obesity. This technique has come to be associated with suitable weight loss results, low technical complications, short surgery time, low cost, short post-operational period, and low chances of injury comparisons with other bariatric surgical approaches to weight loss in morbid obesity such as sleeve and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no report of such surgery in the case of situs inversus totalis concurrent with morbid obesity. Read More

Situs Inversus Totalis: Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and Some Modifications.

Mymensingh Med J 2018 Oct;27(4):872-878

Professor Dr Md Kamruzzaman Khan, Professor Department of Surgery, Dhaka Community Medical College and Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the standard approach since its introduction in 1987 by Mouret. Situs inversus totalis is a rare anomaly in which transposition of the organ to the opposite site of the body occurs. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy due to gall stone disease in such few cases has been reported in the literature. Read More

Recessive DNAH9 Loss-of-Function Mutations Cause Laterality Defects and Subtle Respiratory Ciliary-Beating Defects.

Am J Hum Genet 2018 Dec 21;103(6):995-1008. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Genome Research Division, Human Genetics Department, Radboud University Medical Center and Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, Geert Grooteplein Zuid 10, 6525KL Nijmegen, the Netherlands; Center for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, University Hospital Freiburg, Freiburg University Faculty of Medicine, Mathildenstrasse 1, 79112 Freiburg, Germany. Electronic address:

Dysfunction of motile monocilia, altering the leftward flow at the embryonic node essential for determination of left-right body asymmetry, is a major cause of laterality defects. Laterality defects are also often associated with reduced mucociliary clearance caused by defective multiple motile cilia of the airway and are responsible for destructive airway disease. Outer dynein arms (ODAs) are essential for ciliary beat generation, and human respiratory cilia contain different ODA heavy chains (HCs): the panaxonemally distributed γ-HC DNAH5, proximally located β-HC DNAH11 (defining ODA type 1), and the distally localized β-HC DNAH9 (defining ODA type 2).

Mutations in Outer Dynein Arm Heavy Chain DNAH9 Cause Motile Cilia Defects and Situs Inversus.

Am J Hum Genet 2018 Dec 21;103(6):984-994. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Genetics and Genomic Medicine Programme, University College London, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, London WC1N 1EH, UK. Electronic address:

Motile cilia move body fluids and gametes and the beating of cilia lining the airway epithelial surfaces ensures that they are kept clear and protected from inhaled pathogens and consequent respiratory infections. Dynein motor proteins provide mechanical force for cilia beating. Dynein mutations are a common cause of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), an inherited condition characterized by deficient mucociliary clearance and chronic respiratory disease coupled with laterality disturbances and subfertility.

Implantation of a completely right sided subcutaneous cardioverter-defibrillator in a patient with situs inversus dextrocardia.

Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, Department of Medicine, Cardiology Division, USA. Electronic address:

Dextrocardia is a congenital anomaly where the heart is abnormally located in the right hemithorax. In these patients, the implementation of transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (TV-ICD) can be technically challenging and pose a higher risk of complications than the general population. We present the case of a male patient that was successfully submitted to right-sided implantation of subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) as an alternative to transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death.

Takatsuki General Hospital Heart Rhythm Center Takatsuki Japan.

A 51-year-old male with dextrocardia and situs inversus underwent catheter ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Because the procedure through the trans-septal approach was impossible due to the inferior vena cava continuity with azygos vein, we performed pulmonary vein isolation using magnetic navigation system through the retrograde trans-aortic approach. Superior and inferior left-sided and superior right-sided pulmonary veins could be isolated which was confirmed by the ablation catheter. Read More

Acute myocardial infarction in dextrocardia - A diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Can dextrocardia be a risk factor?

J Cardiol Cases 2018 Feb 12;17(2):48-51. Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Department of Cardiology, Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Science and Research, Bangalore, India.

Acute myocardial infarction in dextrocardia may present several challenges either in electrocardiographic diagnosis or coronary intervention or both, due to abnormal location of the heart, mirror images o the aorta and its branches, and abnormal coronary origin and orientation. Also, dextrocardia as a risk factor for coronary artery disease is less well established. We report the case of a young patient with dextrocardia and situs inversus without any risk factor who presented with acute extensive anterior wall myocardial infarction diagnosed after lead reversal and who successfully underwent coronary intervention using "double inversion technique".

Systemic venous anomalies can occur in isolation or in association with other congenital heart disease. A left superior vena cava draining to a roofed coronary sinus represents the most common venous variant and is usually inconsequential. Embryologic or acquired disruptions in systemic veins can be problematic due to shunting and/or venous obstruction. Read More

Key Laboratory for Plant Diversity and Biogeography of East Asia, Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Kunming, 650204, China.

The need for integration of ex situ and in situ approaches in conservation of plants has long been recognized. However, ex situ collections have numerous limitations that reduce their utility for conservation, necessitating the introduction of new, more appropriate, flexible and less costly approaches. Two new approaches that can be called "intermediate" between in situ and ex situ, and bridging them in some way have been proposed over the last two decades. Read More

Robotic Donor Nephrectomy: Against.

Eur Urol Focus 2018 03 3;4(2):142-143. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Clinic of Urology and Transplantation, Medical Faculty of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Halle/Saale, Germany.

The use of robotic techniques in laparoscopic donor nephrectomy currently tends to involve a longer ischemia time without clear advantages, and the cost of robotic surgery is significantly higher. If only one robot is available, then unnecessary prolongation of cold ischemia time also occurs, as the donor must first be undocked to dock the recipient. The combination of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy with parallel initiation of robot-assisted situs preparation and exposure of the renal vessels appears to be the best current approach to safe and cost-effective donor nephrectomy and subsequent robot-assisted kidney transplantation without wasting any time.

Over ten-year insulin independence following single allogeneic islet transplant without T-cell depleting antibody induction.

Islets 2018 19;10(4):168-174. Epub 2018 Jul 19.

a Division of Transplant, Department of Surgery , University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago , Illinois.

Islet cell transplantation is a promising functional cure for type 1 diabetes; however, maintaining long-term islet graft function and insulin independence is difficult to achieve. In this short report we present a patient with situs inversus, who at the time of islet transplantation had a 26-year history of type 1 diabetes, complicated by hypoglycemic unawareness and severe hypoglycemic events. After a single allogeneic islet transplant of a low islet mass, and despite developing de novo anti-insulin and anti-GAD65 autoantibodies, the patient has remarkably maintained insulin independence with tight glycemic control and normal metabolic profiles for 10 years, after receiving prolonged non-T-cell depleting immunosuppression.
