Jan 29th, 2023 - Malalignments of the lower extremity are common reasons for orthopedic consultation because it may lead to osteoarthritis in adulthood. An accurate and reliable radiological assessment of lower limb alignment in children and adolescents is essential for clinical decision-making on treatment of limb deformities and for regular control after a surgical intervention. First, does the analysis of fu...

Jan 29th, 2023 - Rectal atresia is a rare subtype of anorectal malformations in which the patients are born with a normal anal canal but have complete atresia located few centimeters proximal to the dentate line. We present the transanal end-to-end rectoanal anastomosis as a surgical technique for the management of these patients, highlight the outcomes, and emphasize on some clinical tips. Four patients were d...

Jan 15th, 2023 - Antenatal detection of limb anomalies is not uncommon, and pregnancies are usually terminated in view of the expected physical handicap. The aim of this retrospective observational study is to delineate the spectrum of fetal limb anomalies and provide evidence in support of complete postnatal evaluation in establishing recurrence risk. We present 54 cases of limb malformations detected antenata...

Jan 15th, 2023 - Giant umbilical cord, defined as a cord diameter of more than 5 cm, is an extremely rare malformation. There are few case reports of giant umbilical cord often associated with patent urachus duct or cystic malformation. These cases are usually managed by surgical excision and repair of patent urachus or cyst resection. We report the case of a 1-day-old Iranian boy with giant umbilical cord dete...

Jan 11th, 2023 - Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich (HWW) syndrome is a rare congenital Mullerian duct anomaly disease that is characterized by a triad of symptoms, didelphys uterus, blind hemivagina, and ipsilateral renal agenesis. Herein, we reported a case from China. An 11-year-old patient presented to our hospital with lower abdominal pain and frequent urination. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging re...

Jan 7th, 2023 - Infantile cranial development typically occurs in a predictable sequence of events; however, less is known about how the development occurs in isolated, nonsyndromic congenital craniofacial anomalies. Furthermore, the timing of pediatric cranioplasty has been extrapolated from adult studies. Thus, the management of nonsyndromic congenital craniofacial anomalies presents with unique challenges t...

Jan 5th, 2023 - Exclusive drainage of superior vena cava (SVC) into the left atrium (LA) is one of the rare causes of right-to-left connection. Usually, this anomaly occurs in association with other cardiac defects, and is diagnosed in early childhood. But if it remains an isolated anomaly, this connection may be underdiagnosed and could lead to systemic manifestations. We describe a case of anomalous connecti...

Jan 5th, 2023 - We present a case of a pregnant patient with an unrepaired vein of Galen malformation (VGAM) and left ventricular (LV) dilation. Patients with VGAM lesions typically present during childhood with cardiac failure or developmental delay prompting embolization. Therefore, it is highly unusual for an adult to present with an unrepaired lesion.1 It poses challenges for obstetric and anesthetic manag...

Jan 5th, 2023 - Cutis aplasia is a rare condition characterized by skin and subcutaneous tissue defects. Researchers have previously described both conservative and surgical management methods. We report herein the case of a neonate with extensive cutis aplasia involving 37% of the total body surface area. Due to the risk of meningitis and catastrophic hemorrhage associated with scalp defects, she underwent st...

Jan 4th, 2023 - The development of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is influenced by a myriad of risk factors which are seen across a wide spectrum of healthcare settings. We present a previously fit and well male in his early 40s with extensive bilateral lower limb DVT associated with total inferior vena cava (IVC) agenesis. The diagnosis was made with contrast-enhanced CT imaging of the abdomen and pelvis. With no...

Jan 4th, 2023 - This review summarizes the pathway of Mullerian and Wolffian duct development, anomalies that result from disruptions to this pathway, and the characteristics on advanced imaging that identify them. In-office evaluation for reproductive anomalies is usually inadequate for the diagnosis of congenital reproductive anomalies. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has usurped invasive diagnostic methods...

Jan 4th, 2023 - Duplicate inferior vena cava (IVC) is an uncommon congenital malformation, but should be treated carefully under the circumstances of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). However, there is a paucity of clinical guidance on this situation. Duplicate IVC was diagnosed based on the imaging examination that revealed the dual IVC. Deep venous thrombosis was diagnosed by Compression Doppler ultrasonography ...

Jan 2nd, 2023 - The transgenerational inheritance of phenotype induced by environmental factors is a new focus in epigenetic research. In this study, Drosophila melanogaster (F0) was cultured in the medium containing cadmium (Cd, 4.5 mg/kg) from eggs to adults, and offspring (F1-F4) were continuously kept in standard medium (without cadmium). The phenotype analysis showed that cadmium induced developmental def...

Dec 30th, 2022 - Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) patients often have suspected isolated aortic arch anomalies (IAAA) on imaging. The purpose of this work was to describe the incidence and outcomes of CDH + IAAA patients. Cardiovascular data were collected for infants from the CDH Study Group born between 2007 and 2019. IAAA were defined as coarctation of aorta, hypoplastic aortic arch, interrupted aortic ...

Dec 29th, 2022 - Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome (ARS) is a rare kind of anterior segment dysgenesis (ASD). The most common ocular features of ARS are posterior embryotoxon and iris hypoplasia, while some patients may manifest as corneal opacity and edema. However, the current understanding of how ARS affects the cornea is still incomplete. This study reports a novel histopathological finding of ARS, complicating corn...

Dec 26th, 2022 - Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) is a rare congenital heart disease, with which some patients suffer from postoperative pulmonary venous obstruction (PPVO), requiring particular follow-up strategies and treatments. PPVO prediction has important clinical significance, while building a PPVO prediction model is challenging due to limited data and class imbalance distribution. In...
