Dec 2nd, 2022 - Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a hereditary and progressive renal disease. By the age of 65 years, 45% to 70% of patients with ADPKD reach end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Although there are various treatments for this condition, no standard therapy exists to delay the progression of ADPKD. Hence, understanding the factors that affect disease progression may be helpful f...

Dec 1st, 2022 - Intestinal vascular permeability (VP) in a murine model for Hirschsprung's disease (HD) and postoperative Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis (HAEC) were investigated. Intestinal VP was determined using a Miles assay using 1% Evans blue injected into a superficial temporal vein of newborn endothelin receptor-B KO HD model (KO) and syngeneic wild-type (WT) mice (n = 5, respectively). Extravasa...

Dec 1st, 2022 - Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with situs inversus totalis (SIT) is rarely understood due to its rarity. Patient position and endoscope manipulation were the main concerns in published case reports. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of ERCP in SIT patients. Patients with SIT who underwent ERCP were enrolled in nine endoscopic cen...

Nov 30th, 2022 - Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) causes joint hypermobility and joint dislocation. Since there are no reports of proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) dislocation caused by EDS, little is known about the long-term course of this disease. A woman in her 40s presented with a posterolaterally depressed tibial condyle and severe valgus deformity caused by a long-standing PTFJ dislocation due to EDS. Consi...

Nov 30th, 2022 - We present a case of a small bowel obstruction secondary to a rare plastic bezoar. A man in their early 20s with autism and an intellectual disability presented with symptoms of small bowel obstruction. CT revealed very subtle signs and, despite passage of gastrografin, ongoing clinical suspicion led to operative management which confirmed the diagnoses of plastic bezoar.
