Multimodality imaging spectrum of complications of horseshoe kidney.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2017 Apr-Jun;27(2):133-140

Department of Body Imaging, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Horseshoe kidney is the most common congenital renal fusion anomaly with an incidence of 1 in 400-600 individuals. The most common type is fusion at the lower poles seen in greater than 90% of the cases, with the rest depicting fusion at the upper poles, resulting in an inverted horseshoe kidney. Embryologically, there are two theories hypothesizing the genesis of horseshoe kidney - mechanical fusion theory and teratogenic event theory. Read More

Azithromycin-Induced, Biopsy-Proven Acute Interstitial Nephritis in an Adult Successfully Treated with Low-Dose Corticosteroids.

Pharmacotherapy 2015 Nov;35(11):e169-74

School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Department of Pharmacy Practice, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, New York.

Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) is a form of acute kidney injury (AKI) characterized by a rapid deterioration of renal function, inflammatory infiltration of interstitial tissues, and renal edema. Drug-induced AIN is the most common etiology of AIN, but AIN can also have infectious, autoimmune, or idiopathic causes. β-Lactam antibacterials, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, and proton pump inhibitors are recognized as leading causes of AIN; however, many other drugs have been identified as causes.

Burns 2015 Dec 15;41(8):1764-1774. Epub 2015 Jul 15.

Department of Chemistry, Chemical Biology and Biomedical Engineering, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ 07030, USA. Electronic address:

Creation of functional skin substitutes within a clinically acceptable time window is essential for timely repair and management of large wounds such as extensive burns. The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of fabricating skin substitutes via a bottom-up nanofiber-enabled cell assembly approach and using such substitutes for full-thickness wound repair in nude mice. Following a layer-by-layer (L-b-L) manner, human primary skin cells (fibroblasts and keratinocytes) were rapidly assembled together with electrospun polycaprolactone (PCL)/collagen (3:1, w/w; 8%, w/v) nanofibers into 3D constructs, in which fibroblasts and keratinocytes were located in the bottom and upper portion respectively.

Lower urinary tract dysfunction in the neurological patient: clinical assessment and management.

Lancet Neurol 2015 Jul;14(7):720-32

Neuro-Urology, Spinal Cord Injury Center, University of Zürich, Balgrist University Hospital, Zürich, Switzerland.

Lower urinary tract (LUT) dysfunction is a common sequela of neurological disease, resulting in symptoms that have a pronounced effect on quality of life. The site and nature of the neurological lesion affect the pattern of dysfunction. The risk of developing upper urinary tract damage and renal failure is much lower in patients with slowly progressive non-traumatic neurological disorders than in those with spinal cord injury or spina bifida; this difference in morbidity is taken into account in the development of appropriate management algorithms.
