Toshimitsu Iwasaki, Masataka Matsumoto, Shumpei Satoi, Yuta Yoshida, Kohei Kawaguchi, Keiko Kamei, Atsushi Takebe, Ippei Matsumoto, Takuya Nakai and Yoshifumi Takeyama

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 03, 2020

A 72-year-old man, who had been received hemodialysis for chronic kidney disease, underwent resection of hepatic bed and hepatocholedochus with satellite lymphadenectomy for incidentally identified gallbladder carcinoma after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. He developed spike fever on postoperative day (POD) 10. Computed tomography (CT) showed small fluid collection around the resection surface of liver (Figure 1). Percutaneous drainage was performed and a little fluid with serous appearance was gotten. Several sessions of percutaneous drainage brought temporary remissions but, after de-clamping...

Classification Models of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Patients

Mohammed Alqawba, Luis R Rodriguez, Norou Diawara, Rebecca T Beuschel, Maryann Kaler, Amisha V Barochia, Stewart J Levine, Steven D Nathan and Geraldine Grant

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 16, 2020

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and fatal interstitial lung disease with no current cure. Progression of IPF is difficult to predict as the clinical course can be highly variable and range from a rapidly deteriorating state to a relatively stable state, or may be characterized by a slow progressive decline. Therefore, the need for an accurate diagnosis and improved tools for monitoring and managing IPF is of paramount importance, all for understanding the mitochondrial structure and the function played in the IPF. Mitochondrial DNA copy number (MtDCN) has been correlated with ...

Extrarenal Rhabdoid Tumour of Soft Tissue

Herbert Plasschaert, Frederik Deman, Isabelle Vanden Bempt, Veerle Labarque, Michael Aertsen, Hilde Brems and Raf Sciot

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 14, 2020

Extrarenal rhabdoid tumours appearing in the soft tissues are very rare and might be confused with other high-grade sarcomas harbouring rhabdoid features. We present a case and highlight the differential diagnosis, the ancillary techniques necessary to define its true rhabdoid nature, and the existence of hereditary syndromes. Our case concerns a new-born boy with a congenital and rapidly growing mass in the soft tissue of the left thoracic wall, expanding from a few cm in diameter at the time of birth, to a mass measuring more than 20 cm after one month....

A Case Report of Aspergillus Endocarditis, its Complications and Associated Morbidities

Jian Jing Tan, Sheldon Shao Guang Lee, Siang Chew Chai and Jason Jia Hao See

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 03, 2020

Fungal endocarditis is a notorious disease with a high mortality rate and commonly presents with embolic phenomenon. We report a case of prosthetic valve-related Aspergillus endocarditis with aortic root pseudoaneurysm that presented with acute limb ischemia. In addition, we highlight the significant morbidity that is associated with this fungal infection. With a high clinical index of suspicion and a multidisciplinary team approach, a favourable outcome can be achieved....

Explantation of Silicone Breast Implants Ameliorates Gel Bleed Related Health Complaints in Women with Breast Implant Illness

Rita M Kappel, MD, PhD and Ger JM Pruijn, PhD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 24, 2020

During the last decade the international debate on adverse health effects of silicone breast implants has intensified and recently the related disorder has been termed Breast Implant Illness (BII). This study aimed to explore the effects of explantation of silicone implants. In a retrospective study, women with silicone breast implants, who consulted plastic surgeons for a variety of reasons, were requested to fill out a questionnaire, which was aimed at an evaluation of health complaints. In total, 101 questionnaires of the women with silicone breast implants and 34 questionnaires filled out ...

The Infectious Headache- A Case of Neurocysticercosis

Supraja Thunuguntla, MD, Obinna Echeruo, MD and Jose Campo Maldonado, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 05, 2020

A 50-year-old Hispanic female presented to her primary care physician with a progressively worsening headache over a week, associated with visual disturbances, prosopagnosia and episodes of disorientation. Outpatient workup with head CT showed abnormality in the ventral aspect of the left thalamus showing 1.2 × 1 cm low density cyst with approximately 2-3 mm right-left midline shift locally. Left basal ganglia showed multiple well-defined foci of low density measuring up to 3 mm reflecting edema. On admission, pertinent physical exam findings were left sided nystagmus, positive deep tendon re...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 05, 2020

This was a cross-sectional study conducted in July 2016. It involved data collection regarding food and nutritional knowledge, nutritional habits and practices, physical activity level and health status which were obtained using survey research. The study took place in four schools from the Friendly School of Nutrition Initiative (FNSI) in Cotonou and focused on schoolchildren aged from eight to eleven (n = 182). Anthropometric data including weight and height were collected, BMI indices weight-for age and height-forage were calculated, making it thereby possible to assess the nutritional stat...

Slight Increases of Phosphorus and Sulfur in Human First Septal Perforator Branches of the Left Anterior Descending Artery with Aging

Yoshiyuki Tohno, Setsuko Tohno, Takeshi Minami, Nutcharin Pakdeewong-Ongkana, Noppadol Phasukdee and Pasuk Mahakkanukrauh

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 12, 2020

To elucidate age-related changes of the first septal perforator branch (FSB), the authors investigated age-related changes of elements in the FSBs by direct chemical analysis. In addition, the effects of different arterial sizes and genders on element accumulation were investigated in the FSBs. Sixty-two formalin-fixed adult Thai hearts were used and the FSBs were carefully dissected in the hearts. After the arteries were incinerated with nitric acid and perchloric acid, element contents were determined by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry. It was found that both the P an...

Radiofrequency Ablation as a Treatment Modality for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Kareem M. M. Ibrahim, MBBCH

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 07, 2020

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is one of the major causes of cardiac death that affects 1 in every 500 persons worldwide. Surgical myectomy and alcohol septal ablation have been the gold standard well established procedures for the treatment of this condition. Starting 2004 a new procedure, radiofrequency septal ablation, has been applied and showed significant improvement in the NYHA classification as well as the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradients of these patients. With overall less complications, as compared to the surgical myectomy and the alcohol septal ablation, this procedure ...

Percutaneous Repair of an Aortic Pseudoaneurysm Status Post-Surgical Repair of Stanford Type A Dissection

Brinder S Kanda, MD, FACC, FSCAI, Nicholas E Hoyt , John Haas, MD, Houman Tavaf-Motamen, MD, Ronald Morford, MD, Tina Wesley, BSN, Kenneth Saum, MD and Michael MacCormac, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 05, 2020

A middle-aged Caucasian woman presented with an ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm (AAP) located at the suture site of her previous surgical dissection repair. The pseudoaneurysm was located along the anterior aspect of the ascending thoracic aorta, above the right coronary cusp. We demonstrate successful percutaneous repair of the pseudoaneurysm using a ventricular septal occluder (VSO) and discuss the significance of this procedure for future cardiovascular care. A 56-year-old Caucasian woman with a history of active tobacco abuse, systemic lupus erythematosus, and hypothyroidism underwent emer...
