Novel Technique of Wire-Guided Retrograde Esophageal Dilatation in Infants Using Feeding Tubes: The “DRIFT” Technique

Ravi Patcharu, MS, MCh, Karunesh Chand, MS, MCh and Badal Parikh, MD

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

Esophageal dilatation is the modality of choice for managing anastomotic stricture after primary repair of esophageal atresia (EA). Balloon dilatation over guide wire is the preferred technique with minimal chances of mucosal erosion. In some cases of tight strictures, safe antegrade dilatation becomes impossible if the guidewire cannot be negotiated across the stricture. In such situations, retrograde dilatation is a safer alternative to avoid another thoracotomy for stricture resection and ana...

Footwear for Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis: A Systematic Review

Hunter Loewen, BSc, Madeline S. Wilton-Clark, BSc, Shea Quilichini, BSc, Lauren C. Capozzi, MD, PhD and Ryan T. Lewinson, MD, PhD

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 31, 2020

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) can affect the skin and musculoskeletal structures of the feet, raising the consideration of whether footwear has a role in clinical management. We summarized available evidence on how footwear (shoes, orthotics, insoles, and socks) can be utilized to supplement control of clinical symptoms in patients with psoriasis and PsA. Four electronic databases were searched for articles reporting on patients with psoriasis or PsA and outcomes pertaining to the impa...

Factors Associated with Not Being Tested for HIV among MSM Population in Bamako, Mali

Telly N, Sangho O, Ballo T, Maiga M, Lahuerta M, Padmaja P, Diawara F, Tounkara M, Traore B, Traoré S and Doumbia S

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 28, 2020

Men who have sex with men (MSM) are known to have a higher risk of being infected by HIV. Clinical and public health programs need to incorporate strategies to increase regular HIV testing among MSM in order to control and prevent new infections. A cross-sectional bio-behavioral survey among MSM in Bamako, Mali, was conducted using respondent- driven sampling to study factors associated with not being HIV tested in this vulnerable population. The study participants were ≥ 18-years-old and had ...

Gait Disorders in Older Adults - A Structured Review and Approach to Clinical Assessment

Joseph O Nnodim, MD, PhD, FACP, AGSF, Chinomso V Nwagwu, MD and Ijeoma Nnodim-Opara, MD, FAAP

Article Type: Structured Review | First Published: October 23, 2020

Human beings propel themselves through their environment primarily by walking. This activity is a sensitive indicator of overall health and self-efficacy. Impairments in gait lead to loss of functional independence and are associated with increased fall risk. This structured review examines the basic biology of gait in term of its kinematic properties and control. It describes the common gait disorders in advanced age and proposes a scheme for their recognition and evaluation in the regular ambu...

Article Type: Case Report/Clinical Image | First Published: October 29, 2020

Splenic hematoma after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a rarely reported complication. We describe a patient who developed acute blood loss anemia after ERCP and was found to have a splenic hematoma. She recovered successfully with conservative non operative management. We describe the incidence, diagnosis, potential preventive strategies, as well as management of this rare complication. The patient is an 83-year-old woman with congestive heart failure, hypertension, gas...

A Systematic Approach in Restructuring Elective Breast & Endocrine Cancer Surgery during COVID-19 Pandemic in Malaysia

Tan Yee Ling, Aminnur HM, Nor Safariny Ahmad, Sadhana Mahamad, Anita Baghawi, Jamil Omar and Suhaila Md Hanapiah

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 31, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic had resulted in major disruptions in healthcare globally. As a response to the outbreak, global elective surgeries were suspended to preserve resources. To date, Malaysia’s effectiveness in tackling the COVID-19 was an instructive example for many East Asia countries. In addition to the public health preparedness, we report our experience in early restructuring of elective breast and endocrine cancer surgery to ensure a continuum in cancer care during the peak of the pand...

CANOMAD: A Multi-Faceted Disease

Júlia Machado Rickli, Gabriela Pomaleski and Marcus Vinícius Magno Gonçalves, MD PhD

Article Type: Non-Systematic Review | First Published: October 30, 2020

CANOMAD is a rare syndrome that belongs to the group of peripheral neuropathies associated with IgM monoclonal gammopathy. This acronym was first used in 1996 to describe the clinical features of the disease, which include: Chronic sensory ataxic neuropathy, ophtalmoplegia, M-protein with cold-agglutinin activity and anti-disialosyl antibodies. The syndrome’s physiopathology is not fully understood, but, according to the available researches, it will be expressed in patients whose serum contai...

The characteristics, laboratory parameters, treatments, clinical outcomes in these patients were assessed. A total 300 patients (120 in the metformin and 180 in the no metformin), there were no significant difference between two groups in age, underlying diseases, clinical severity, and oxygen - support category at admission. Other laboratory parameters at admission and treatment after admission were not different between two groups. In-hospital mortality was significantly lower in the metformin...

Multimodal Technique to Maximize Perioperative Pain Control and Minimize Opioid Use in a Patient Undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Case Report

Jaclyn R. Altshuler, MD and Stephanie Ibekwe, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 02, 2020

Perioperative opioid sparing techniques are paramount given the current opioid epidemic. A 54-year-old woman presented with medical history of acute cholecystitis for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Our goal was adequate pain control while limiting opioid administration and opioid-related adverse effects. Pain was managed with preoperative acetaminophen, tramadol, and gabapentin, and intraoperatively with lidocaine, ketamine, and esmolol. Post-operative Visual Analog Score (VAS) was 0/10 immediate...
