Mitral valve regurgitation (MR) is a common problem in patients with cardiac issues especially those with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) due to mitral annular dilatation and malcoaptation of the mitral valve leaflets. Although DCM is associated with high mortality rates, there has been no global agreement about the best method of treatment. Treatment of MR in such cases can be done by surgery, which has many limitations due to high-risk concerns. MR may also be managed by other alternatives such as mitral-clip and transcoronary venous mitral annuloplasty using the Carillon® Mitral Contour System®...

Choriocarcinoma of the ovary is a rare neoplasm and tends to metastasize early to involve the lungs, brain, and liver. Metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract is rare. We report the case of a young lady, who presented with life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding, secondary to jejunal involvement. The site of bleeding was localized using a computed tomography angiogram following inconclusive upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopies. The bleeding jejunal segment was resected and the metastatic disease responded to combination chemotherapy...

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare, life-threatening condition, which may be fatal if not properly treated. This disease refers to thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein, which is the result of bacterial sore throat infection (usually in the form of pharyngitis) that extends into the parapharyngeal space. However, it can result from other infective foci in the ear, nose, parotid glands, and paranasal sinuses. The bacteria typically responsible is Fusobacterium necrophorum . Here, we describe a case of Lemierre's syndrome that occurred in a 20-year-old female who presented with neurological deficits following a two-week history of upper respiratory tract infection...

Acquired cervical aerocele in adults is a rare condition and its delay development after tracheostomy decannulation is reported rarely. Our patient presented eight years after tracheostomy decannulation with a compressible anterior neck mass that only appeared when she coughed and could be deflated using manual compression. The mass was situated suprasternal at the previous tracheostomy scar. Computed tomography scan showed a paratracheal air sac without significant defect at the tracheal wall. Surgical intervention is the best treatment for symptomatic patients...

Objectives: We sought to determine the effects of the delayed start protocol with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists in poor responders undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Methods: This randomized clinical trial was conducted during a 15-month period from April 2014 to July 2015 in clinics in Shiraz, Iran. A total of 42 poor responders with primary infertility were randomly assigned to the controlled ovarian stimulation group utilizing the delayed start protocol (n = 21) or the traditional group (n = 21) using GnRH antagonist, Cetrotide...

Objectives: Fear of childbirth is common during pregnancy and may contribute to several adverse outcomes. We aimed to investigate childbirth fear and associated factors in a sample of pregnant Iranian women. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 525 pregnant women in Sabzevar, Iran from December 2016 to March 2017.

Objectives: Contralateral inguinal exploration in pediatric unilateral inguinal hernia has been an issue of debate. Controversy still exists on whether contralateral patent processus vaginalis (CPPV) is justifiable for herniotomy. This study was conducted to investigate the hypothesis that CPPV always necessitates herniotomy. Methods: This prospective study was conducted on 200 pediatric patients aged 2-120 months old. All patients clinically diagnosed with a unilateral inguinal hernia underwent a clinical examination of both inguinoscrotal regions followed by ultrasonography to elucidate CPPV in both sides...

Objectives: We sought to evaluate the effects of omega-3 and vitamin E co-supplementation on carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and inflammatory factors in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Methods: This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was done among 60 women with PCOS. Participants were randomly assigned into two groups (n = 30 each group) and assigned to take either 1000 mg omega-3 plus 400 IU vitamin E supplements or a placebo for 12 weeks...

Though hypocalcemia in pregnancy is not often reported in the literature, it occurs in cases of hypoparathyroidism and in mothers with severe dietary inadequacy. Hypocalcemia during pregnancy can pose numerous problems to the mother and fetus. It is associated with hypertensive disorders and can increase the risk of numerous problems such as preeclampsia and fetal growth disorders. In this review, we summarize the challenges physicians face diagnosing and managing hypocalcemia during pregnancy. A multidisciplinary team including endocrinologists and obstetricians is warranted to ensure appropriate treatment and optimal outcomes...

Round ligament fibroids are rare tumors and can present as inguinal, adnexal, or vulvar masses. Preoperative diagnosis can be made by ultrasonography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A 28-year-old virgin female presented with pelvic pain that persisted for a few days. Her sonographic evaluation detected a well-defined hyperechoic 45 × 40 mm right adnexal mass interfering endometrioma. A contrast-enhanced pelvic MRI showed a 43 × 39 × 32 mm solid mass located in the right adnexa. Laparoscopic exploration revealed a well-defined double torsion around the peduncle pinky solid mass arising from the right round ligament...
