Creatsas Vaginoplasty in Patients After Pelvic Chemoradiation in Cervical Cancer: A Preliminary Study
1.1. Objective: The main objective of this study was to assess the impact of the Creatsas vaginoplasty on the improvement in the sexual life of patients with cervical cancer who have received chemo radiotherapy and have sexual dysfunction measured by The Female Sexual Function index.
Abernethy malformation is a rare type of congenital malformation of the hepatic portal system. It can take one of three forms and is classified as an extrahepatic portosystemic shunt between the portal vein and a large systemic vein, usually the inferior vena cava (IVC).
Concomitant Diseases in a Complex Case of Peritonitis after Stapled Trans Anal Rectal Resection (STARR) in Obstructed Defecation Syndrome (ODS). Role of A Diagnostic and Therapeutic Multidisciplinary Approach
Approximately 0.06-2.3% Of The Population Presents A Jejunal And Ileal Diverticular (Jid) Disease, Of Whom Approximately 10% Develop Life-Threatening Complications Such As Inflammation, Perforation, Bleeding, Obstruction, And Malabsorption [1, 2, 3]. Although Only 40% Of These Patients Remain Asymptomatic, Jejunal Diverticulosis Is Usually Not Clinically Suspected. The Diagnosis of This Condition Is Usually Made Incidentally Or After The Onset Of Complications As Hemorrhage, Diverticulitis, Or Obstruction.
1. Clinical Image
A previously healthy eight-year old boy presented with history of fever, cough, lethargy and lip swelling. He was on no medication. Chest radiograph was normal. within 48 hours, he developed marked conjunctivitis, mucositis of mouth and urethra and scattered target lesions of his limbs (Figure 1-3). Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgM was positive.
Clinical Evaluation of the Impact of Rectal and Bladder Filling on Prostate Position During Hypofractionated Radiotherapy for Prostate Cancer
1.1. Objective: To evaluate the impact of rectal and bladder filling on prostate position during hypofractionated radiotherapy for prostate cancer.
1.2. Methods: Three gold fiducials were implanted into the prostate in 25 patients. Each patient underwent CT scanning under four different conditions: full rectum and bladder, full bladder and empty rectum, full rectum and empty bladder, and empty rectum and bladder (primary image). The other three scans were aligned with the primary image by pelvic bone, then by the implanted fiducials. Prostate displacements were determined by computing the difference between these two alignments. The magnitude and directions of displacement were analyzed.
An EBV Reactivation Leads to the Appearance of a Second Lymphoma Despite Virulent Immunochemotherapy
1. Clinical Image
A 47-year-old woman presented with an enlarged and tender right sided inguinal lymph node in addition to fatigue and weight loss. The excisional biopsy of the inguinal lymph node revealed histologically and immunohistochemically an infiltration of a Diffuse Large B-cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (DLBCL).
A Case Report: White Cord Syndrome Following Posterior Cervical Decompression: Importance of Timely Diagnosis and Management
A rare complication following cervical decompression the so-called “white cord syndrome” was depicted for first time in 2013 . This delineation was made on the basis of neurological deterioration following cervical decompressive surgery associated magnetic resonance finding of intramedullary high-signal intensity on T2-weighted series without structural compression [2-5].
Hydration Mechanism of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Carbonyl Sulfide (COS) by the Model of Carbonic Anhydrase(II) Enzyme as A Biocatalyst from Thermodynamic and Kinetic Point of View: A Quantum Chemical Investigation
The binding of carbon dioxide to carbonic anhydrase active species [(His)3Zn(OH) ]+ and the generation of inactive species [(His)3Zn(H2O)]2+ and bicarbonate anion via the Lipscomb and Lindskog mechanisms have been investigated using ab initio calculations.
A 25-year old Ghanaian woman presented with a 1-week history of fatigue and breathlessness. Menstrual and dietary histories were normal, there was no overt gastrointestinal blood loss, and she took no medication. Physical (including digital rectal) examination was normal, apart from pale conjunctivae.
Jaccoud’s Arthropathy (JA) is a deforming but not destructive process involving the hands, described originally in rheumatic fever and now known to complicate a number of rheumatologic and non-rheumatologic conditions, particularly lupus, where approximately 5% may be affected .
