Postmenopausal hyperandrogenism.

T Yoldemir

Climacteric 2021 May 14:1-9. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Marmara University Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Postmenopausal hyperandrogenism is a state of relative or absolute androgen excess originating from the adrenal glands and/or ovaries clinically manifested by the presence of terminal hair in androgen-dependent areas of the body, and other manifestations of hyperandrogenism such as acne and alopecia or the development of virilization. In such circumstances, physicians must exclude the possibility of rare but serious androgen-producing tumors of the adrenal glands or ovaries. Worsening of undiagnosed hyperandrogenic disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, ovarian hyperthecosis, Cushing syndrome and iatrogenic hyperandrogenism should be considered for differential diagnosis.

Surgical management of congenital lobar emphysema associated with CHD.

Cardiol Young 2021 May 14:1-3. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Hyogo Prefectural Kobe Children's Hospital, 1-6-7, Minatojima-minamimachi, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo650-0047, Japan.

Congenital lobar emphysema is often associated with CHD in early infancy; however, the surgical strategy for this condition is still controversial. We report three successful cases of emphysematous lung lobectomy before the surgical repair of associated CHD. Aggressive lobectomy preceding cardiac interventions is advised when the management of congenital lobar emphysema is difficult. Read More

[Mitral Valve Repair via Right Thoracotomy Thirty-seven Years after Right Pneumonectomy:Report of a Case].

Kyobu Geka 2021 May;74(5):353-357

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Tokyo Rinkai Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

A 57-year-old man was referred to our hospital due to dyspnea on exertion with severe mitral regurgitation. Because he had underdone right pneumonectomy 37 years earlier due to congenital defect of the right pulmonary artery, his mediastinum was severely shifted to the right, and his pulmonary function was poor. Mitral valve repair was successfully performed with right thoracotomy approach, which made excellent exposure of the mitral valve. Read More

Late Effects of Clubfoot Deformity in Adolescent and Young Adult Patients Whose Initial Treatment Was an Extensive Soft-tissue Release: Topic Review and Clinical Case Series.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg Glob Res Rev 2020 May;4(5):e1900126

From the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO (Dr. Johnson, Dr. Klein, Dr. McCormick, Dr. Dobbs, Dr. Gordon, Dr. Schoenecker); the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dartmouth-Hitchcock School of Medicine, New Hampshire, NH (Dr. Fortney); and the Congress Orthopaedic Associates, Arcadia, CA (Dr. Luk).

Children with congenital clubfoot often have residual deformity, pain, and limited function in adolescence and young adulthood. These patients represent a heterogeneous group that often requires an individualized management strategy. This article reviews the available literature on this topic while proposing a descriptive classification system based on a review of patients at our institution who underwent surgery for problems related to previous clubfoot deformity during the period between January 1999 and January 2012.
