Familial Hypercholesterolemia and Pregnancy: Risk and Management

Roberta Mombelli and Giuliana Mombelli

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 18, 2015

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a dominantly inherited disorder present from birth with elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and increased risk for premature coronary heart disease (CHD) with clinical manifestation between the first and the fourth decades of life. Although statins are the most effective therapy for individuals with FH the use of statins is contraindicated during pregnancy. For this reason, before of a pregnancy the lipid-lowering drugs are discontin...

VIA and Challenges of a Single Visit Approach in Malawi

Haeok Lee, Mary Sue Makin, Jasintha T Mtengezo and Address Malata

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 01, 2015

Cancer of the cervix is the most common cancer in women in sub-Saharan Africa. This is a report of the experience of a 25 year-old HIV negative woman with five children who was detected with a precancerous lesion with VIA at a local health facility. She was referred for post-VIA treatment at another facility 60 Km away. She traveled all day for her follow-up treatment and spent all her money to get there so that she had none remaining to pay for food or her return bus fare. This case study point...

Endoscopic Transcanal Cartilage Myringoplasty for Repair of Subtotal Tympanic Membrane Perforation: A Method to Avoid Postauricular Incision

Khaled M Mokbel, Waleed Moneir, Hossam Elsisi and Ahmed Alsobky

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 28, 2015

Our aim is to evaluate transcanal endoscopic approach in repair of subtotal tympanic membrane perforation in a trial to prevent conventional postaural approach. Our study was done in 80 patients with unilateral dry subtotal tympanic perforations. They were 44 males and 36 females. Their ages ranged from 18-50 years with mean of 33 years. Autograft thin (0.2 mm) auricular cartilage shield was used to repair tympanic membrane perforation. Patients were divided into two groups according to the appr...

Eosinophilic Airway Inflammation: The Effectiveness of Nasal Steroids

Peirolo Anna, Simoncini Daniela, Macchi Alberto, Graziani Daniela, Porcu Stefania and Nespoli Luigi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 24, 2015

Background: An increasing proportion of patients have coexisting upper and lower airway disease. Therefore, the historic perspective of these allergen-induced disorders as distinct and separate entities is being displaced by current thinking that they are better described as a continuum of inflammation involving one common airway. Objectives:The aim of this study was to investigate the role that upper airway inflammation and therapy plays on lower airway situation. Methods:This study was perform...

Split Fracture and Displacement of Mandibular Lingual Cortical Plate of Mandibular Symphysis Requires Fixation

Masaki Fujioka, Kenji Hayashida and Hiroto Saijo

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 3, 2015

The first priority in the management of comminuted mandibular fractures is the prevention of acute upper airway obstruction. Each division of mandibular fractures may cause respiratory obstruction. Among the variety of such fractures, split fracture of the symphyseal lingual cortical plate has a significant influence on the oropharyngeal and laryngopharyngeal airway spaces, and causes a markedly restricted ventilatory function. As the bony fragment is pedicled to the geniohyoid and genioglossus ...

Third Metacarpal Shortening Osteotomy to Improve Hand Appearance after Index Ray Amputation

Perez-Garcia A, Cavadas PC, Lorca-Garcia C, Thione A and Aranda F

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 2, 2015

Ray amputation is a good option in failure or no possible replantation, or in cases of useless finger or stump. Index ray amputation poses a decrease in grip strength, but does not represent a major impairment to the usual activities because its role in precision and key pinch can be adopted by the third finger. The cosmetic aspect is highly acceptable; however, after this procedure, the long finger loses its central position in the hand, which leads to a less natural appearance....

A Rare Cause of Lower Airway Obstruction Due to Inhalation of Illicit Drug Packet

P Ruggiano, MC Ferraro, A Franci, N Stanflin, M Bonizzoli, A Peris and Filippo Socci

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 23, 2015

We report a case of a previously healthy 29-year-old male who experienced a severe traumatic brain injury with right temporal extracerebral intracranic hematoma and splenic injury after massive trauma sustained after a car accident. The patient was on his bike, he missed a red traffic light, and a car invested him and threw him 4 meters away. In the prehospital setting, the patient was found with GCS 3, with pupils equals, round and reactive to light with good hemodynamics. The medical emergency...

Orbital Floor Reconstruction in Facial Asymmetry: A Clinical Case

Maglione Michele, Sossi Davide, Paolo Cecchini and Rizzo Roberto

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 21, 2015

Orbital floor blowout fractures may cause severe facial asymmetry, particularly when combined with panfacial fractures with wide bone defects. Surgical repair recommendations depend on multi-disciplinary clinical evaluation and digital imaging to assess the amount of soft tissues herniation, the infraorbital nerve and rectum inferioris muscle entrapments, the ocular bulbus dislocation, and the ocular diplopia. A second surgery intervention may be required particularly when the orbital floor frac...

Motive8! Feasibility of a Text Messaging Intervention to Promote Physical Activity in Knee Osteoarthritis

Holly Blake, Anna L. Roberts, Mark E. Batt and Jonathan P. Moses

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: November 28, 2015

27 people (6 male, 21 female; aged 25-81 years) with knee osteoarthritis received 4 text messages per week, for 6 weeks. Telephone surveys were conducted at baseline and 6 weeks to measure physical activity levels and beliefs, including self-efficacy for exercise, barriers and benefits of exercise, social support and pain. Participants completed physical activity diaries. Process evaluation included participant perceptions of the intervention and 'real-time' data on intervention fidelity (automa...
