World Journal of Surgical Oncology; Sato Y, Tanaka Y et. al.

May 20th, 2022 - A right top pulmonary vein (RTPV) that crosses behind the right main or intermediate bronchus is a variation of the superior posterior pulmonary vein in the right upper lobe. Damage or ligation of this abnormal vessel can lead to massive intraoperative bleeding and serious complications, such as congestion of the posterior segment of the right upper lobe and cardiac tamponade. Subcarinal lymph ...

Images of the month 1: Ischaemic stroke due to pulmonary arteriovenous fistula.
https://doi.org/10.7861/clinmed.2022-0092
Clinical Medicine (London, England); Xu S, Hong M et. al.

May 19th, 2022 - A 38-year-old man was admitted to the hospital due to a "suddenly developed right hemiplegia, unconsciousness and gaze to the right". Pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas (PAVFs) are rare but an important cause of stroke in young people, which is easy to be clinically neglected. Therefore, for young patients with pulmonary diseases and cerebral infarction, the possibility of PAVF should be consider...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9101858
BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth; Wang L, Chen L et. al.

May 14th, 2022 - The prenatal detection rate of fetal uterine effusion is very low, and current case reports mainly focus on pathological hydrometrocolpos. We presented two cases of fetal physiological uterine effusion with different ultrasonic characteristics and compared them with one case of hydrometrocolpos with the hope of identifying strategies to reduce misdiagnosis of fetal uterine effusion. This paper ...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9102724
Journal of Medical Case Reports; Boucher Y, Mularski A et. al.

May 14th, 2022 - Elongation of the styloid process associated with oropharyngeal pain and dysphagia is known as Eagle's syndrome, a condition whose pathophysiology is still a matter of debate. Given its low prevalence and complex symptomatology, this syndrome is often misdiagnosed, leading to chronic pain and medical nomadism. A 51-year-old woman of African origin with 3-year history of left-side oropharyngeal ...

Uterus didelphys complicated with endometrial carcinoma: A case report of uterus didelp...
https://doi.org/10.1097/MD.0000000000029183
Medicine Chen L, Zhang F et. al.

May 14th, 2022 - The incidence of uterine malformations is low (4%-7%). Currently, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network clinical practice guidelines in oncology recommend minimally invasive surgery for early endometrial cancer. Minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of uterine didelphys with endometrial cancer is rare due to the large size of the uterus. To date, only 2 such patients have been report...

Robert's uterus (asymmetric septate uterus): a rare congenital Müllerian duct anomaly.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9083431
BMJ Case Reports; Dunphy L, Taylor S et. al.

May 7th, 2022 - Müllerian anomalies such as Robert's uterus, which was first described by the French gynaecologist Dr Helene Robert in 1969, are rare clinical entities and have been reported in <3% of the female population. Robert's uterus is a rare phenomenon with a relative dearth of reported cases. Affected individuals may present with pelvic pain and dysmenorrhoea that intensifies near menses or acutely, w...

An "Unusual" Diverticulated Appearance in Adult Direct Gerbode Defect: A Case Report.
https://doi.org/10.12659/AJCR.935537
The American Journal of Case Reports; Soetisna TW

May 4th, 2022 - BACKGROUND Gerbode defect is a defect that communicates the left ventricle (LV) to the right atrium (RA). Although it was originally identified as a congenital defect, it is becoming more common accepted that the lesion has either an iatrogenic or non-iatrogenic origin. In this article, the author presents an unusual diverticulated appearance of direct Gerbode defect in an adult patient without...

Respiratory Research; Ma X, Li LL et. al.

May 4th, 2022 - Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) are rare but cause various manifestations. Although the diameter of feeding arteries has been linked to treatment decisions, relationships among the characteristics of PAVMs, clinical symptoms, and treatment effect remain unclear. The present study was performed to investigate how collective characteristics of PAVMs relate to clinical symptoms and t...

Intestinal Atresias.
https://doi.org/10.1542/pir.2021-005177
Pediatrics in Review; Rich BS, Bornstein E et. al.

May 1st, 2022 - Intestinal atresia is a form of congenital bowel obstruction that requires operative repair in the early neonatal period. Duodenal atresia and jejunoileal (JI) atresia are appropriately seen as distinct entities. Both can be suspected with fetal imaging, which can assist with prenatal counseling of families. Duodenal atresia is more commonly associated with comorbidities, whereas JI atresia is ...

The Heart Surgery Forum; Cheng X, Qunqun Lou et. al.

Apr 30th, 2022 - Left-sided partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is a rare congenital abnormal cardiac defect. An intact atrial septum is more uncommon. As we know, a connection of the left pulmonary vein (LPV) to the coronary sinus (CS) with an intact atrial septum has not been previously reported. We report an 18-year-old woman with this rare anomaly. She showed no obvious clinical symptoms. ...

Apr 30th, 2022 - A one-month-old neonate presented to the hospital with dyspnea and bloody stool, which happened suddenly and progressed over two days. Computed tomography and three-dimensional reconstruction of the trachea and heart was done, demonstrating significant trachea stenosis, aberrant right subclavian artery arising from Kommerell's diverticulum, and patent ductus arteriosus. Reconstruction of the ab...

The Heart Surgery Forum; Li B, Liu A et. al.

Apr 30th, 2022 - There are few surgical treatment results in elderly patients with functional single ventricle (FSV) and total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC). We retrospectively analyzed 10 years of mid-term surgical treatment results and risk factors of these age-specific people. Between March 2008 and December 2018, 43 consecutive patients with FSV and TAPVC received initial surgical palliation...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9044620
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Komori K, Hashimoto H et. al.

Apr 29th, 2022 - A mediastinal mediobasal segmental pulmonary artery (A7) from the right main pulmonary artery is extremely rare. We report the case of a 71-year-old woman with an aberrant mediastinal A7 who underwent right lower lobectomy for lung cancer (cT1bN0M0, stage IA2). Preoperative three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) angiography revealed an aberrant mediastinal A7 in the right main pulmonary art...

Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Budacan AM, Patel AJ et. al.

Apr 29th, 2022 - Percutaneous vascular interventions are performed for the treatment of haemoptysis and involve embolization of bronchial arteries, pulmonary arteries and pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. There are isolated reports of embolization of pseudoaneurysms forming in the pulmonary vasculature. The migration of components of the coils used in the embolization of vascular pulmonary pathologies is r...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9052695
Journal of Medical Case Reports; Elawad OAMA, Dafallah MA et. al.

Apr 29th, 2022 - Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a rare multisystem autosomal recessive disorder that falls under the spectrum of ciliopathy disorders. It is characterized by rod-cone dystrophy, renal malformations, polydactyly, learning difficulties, central obesity, and hypogonadism. Many minor features that are related with Bardet-Biedl syndrome might aid in diagnosis and are crucial in clinical management. Bardet-...

Apr 29th, 2022 - Arthrogryposis is a consequence of reduced fetal movements and arises due to environmental factors or underlying genetic defects, with extensive genetic heterogeneity. In many instances, the genes responsible are involved in neuromuscular function. Missense variants in the gene encoding embryonic myosin heavy chain (MYH3) usually cause distal arthrogryposis. Recently, mono-allelic or bi-allelic...
