Sep 27th, 2022 - In vitro drug screening studies have indicated that camostat mesilate (FOY-305) may prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection into human airway epithelial cells. This study was conducted to investigate whether camostat mesilate is an effective treatment for SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19). This was a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study. Patients were enrolled if t...

Sep 24th, 2022 - The search for the "gold standard" in the surgical treatment of pterygium has been ongoing for over two decades. Despite the development of various surgical techniques, recurrence rates range from 6.7% to 88% depending on the method used. This review discusses the latest and most commonly used methods for the surgical removal of pterygium, primarily focusing on efficacy and safety. Moreover, th...

Sep 21st, 2022 - Iliac vein compression syndrome is a rare disorder that causes oedema of one or both legs, with or without thrombosis. This current case report describes a 71-year-old male patient with left iliac vein compression caused by a bladder diverticulum that occurred secondary to chronic prostatic hyperplasia. The patient presented with left leg oedema without deep vein thrombosis. Contrast-enhanced c...

Sep 20th, 2022 - Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) is rare congenital heart disease. Most TAPVRs require surgical corrections in the neonatal period and survival to adulthood without surgical correction is extremely rare. Most untreated patients with large atrial septal defects and no pulmonary venous obstruction have pulmonary vascular damage from pulmonary over circulation. 44-year-old TAPVR pat...

Sep 19th, 2022 - The oculomotor nerve is the third cranial nerve, exiting the brainstem in the medial border of the cerebral peduncle, from where it crosses straight to the superior orbital fissure. It is a purely motor nerve responsible for the innervation of all the extraocular muscles, except the superior oblique and lateral rectus muscles. It also has parasympathetic pre-ganglionic fibers, responsible for t...

Sep 17th, 2022 - Congenital malformations of the spine and spinal cord are a large and diverse group of diagnoses, which are often broadly referred to as spinal dysraphisms (SDs). Derived from the Greek words dys (bad) and raphe (suture), the term dysraphism describes missteps in the process of forming a midline seam during the zipper-like fusion of the neural folds in primary neurulation. As such, the term "sp...

Sep 17th, 2022 - Congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract (CAKUT) are some of the most common abnormalities detected on prenatal imaging assessment. It is estimated that CAKUT comprises 20% to 30% of all major birth defects. More than 200 clinical syndromes currently include CAKUT as a component of the phenotype. This chapter outlines the evaluation and management of the most common forms of CAKUT.

Sep 17th, 2022 - The aim of this study was to analyze the diagnostic significance of ultrasonography combined with hysteroscopy for intrauterine space-occupying abnormalities. A total of 99 patients with uterine space-occupying abnormalities treated in hospitals were enrolled. The patients were divided into three groups according to different disease types: the submucosal myoma group, endometrial polyp group, a...

Sep 17th, 2022 - Advances in pre and postnatal neuroimaging techniques, and molecular genetics have increased our understanding of the congenital malformation of the brain. Correct diagnosis of these malformations in regards to embryology, and molecular neurogenetics is of paramount importance to understand the inheritance pattern and risk of recurrence. Lesions detected on prenatal imaging require confirmation...
