An understanding of the etiological mechanisms is important for therapeutic decisions and prognostic evaluation of patients with ischemic stroke. The object of this study was to evaluate the risk factors, etiological subtypes, and topography of lesion in patients with medullary infarctions (MIs). Besides, we also investigated early neurological deterioration, new vascular events, and functional outcome of all patients at 3-month follow-up. We analyzed our database consisting of patients who were diagnosed with acute MI and who were admitted within 24 hours of onset...

BACKGROUND: Congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV), also known as clubfoot, is common congenital orthopedic foot deformity in children characterized by four components of foot deformities: hindfoot equinus, hindfoot varus, midfoot cavus, and forefoot adduction. Although a number of conservative and surgical methods have been proposed to correct the clubfoot deformity, the relapses of the clubfoot are not uncommon. Several previous literatures discussed about the technical details of Ponseti method, adherence of Ponseti protocol among walking age or older children...

INTRODUCTION: Endosonography guided celiac plexus neurolysis is efficacious in the management of severe pain due to advanced pancreatic cancer. Although endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided celiac neurolysis (CN) is mostly a safer procedure than the percutaneous posterior approach, severe complications such as paraplegia have been reported. CASE REPORT: We describe a patient with advanced adenocarcinoma of the pancreas and severe pain who developed irreversible paraplegia after EUS guided CN...

Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG) are a rapidly expanding group of inherited metabolic disorders with highly variable clinical presentations caused by deficient glycosylation of proteins and/or lipids. CDG-IIh is a very rare subgroup of CDG caused by mutations in the conserved oligomeric Golgi (COG) complex gene, COG8, and so far, only two cases have been reported in the medical literature. Here, we describe an 8-year-old Korean boy with psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, failure to thrive, elevated serum liver enzymes, microcephaly, and talipes equinovarus...

Sporopollenin microcages were produced from the pollens of Platanus orientalis. Paracetamol was loaded into the microcages. Pollen, sporopollenin, paracetamol and paracetamol-loaded sporopollenin microcages were characterized with FT-IR, TGA and SEM. The analytical analyses demonstrated that sporopollenin microcages were structurally intact, highly reticulated and thermally stable. The loading efficiency of the sporopollenin microcages was found to be 8.2% using the passive loading technique and 23.7% via evaporating loading technique...

Sacral agenesis is a rare congenital defect which is associated with foot deformities such as congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV) and less commonly congenital vertical talus (CVT). We report a 3-year-old Caucasian girl who was born with right CTEV and left CVT secondary to sacral agenesis. Her right foot was managed with a Ponseti casting method at 2 weeks, followed by an Achilles tenotomy at 4 months. The left foot was initially managed with a nocturnal dorsi-flexion splint. Both feet remained resistant and received open foot surgery at 10 months producing plantigrade feet with neutral hindfeet...

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different extraction temperatures (25, 55 and 85°C) on the rheological characteristics of glucomannan (GM) purified from salep. GM was isolated using the following method: extraction of GM with water, removal of impurities by centrifugation and precipitation of GM with ethanol. The extraction yield of GM was approximately 45% for all products. Higher GM (95%) and lower starch (3%) contents were obtained for GM25. GM25 showed higher apparent and intrinsic viscosity, storage and loss modulus and lower activation energy than GM55 and GM85...

Experimental and clinical data strongly suggests that nitric oxide (NO) plays a pivotal role in migraine. This is also supported by studies of migraine induced by substances that release NO. NO is synthesized from L-arginine by endothelial NO synthase (NOS). Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is the major endogenous competitive inhibitor of NOS. Symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA) is an inactive stereoisomer of ADMA. It may reduce NO production by competing with arginine for cellular uptake. The aim of this study was to measure the levels of ADMA, SDMA and L-arginine in migraine patients during the interictal period...

BACKGROUND: A non-thrombotic pulmonary embolism is defined as embolization to the pulmonary circulation. It may be caused by microorganisms, foreign bodies, different cell types or gas in the pulmonary circulation. Pulmonary hydatid cyst-induced embolization is a rare complication of heart or liver hydatid cysts. CASE REPORT: We describe the fatal case of a 15-year-old boy without any known prior illness who was admitted to the hospital after feeling unwell and dropping to the ground while playing ball...

Pierre-Robin sequence, radial deviation, and ulnar clinodactyly of the index fingers due to an additional phalangeal bone, as well as heart defects are the key features of Catel-Manzke syndrome. Although mutations in TGDS were identified as the cause of this disorder, the pathogenetic mechanism remains unknown. Here, we report on a fetus with severe heart defect, nuchal edema, talipes, Pierre-Robin sequence, and bilateral deviation and clinodactyly of the index and middle fingers. Pregnancy was terminated at the 22nd week of gestation...

Amparo Palacios-Lopez, Luc Christiaensen, Talip Kilic
The contribution of women to labor in African agriculture is regularly quoted in the range of 60-80%. Using individual, plot-level labor input data from nationally representative household surveys across six Sub-Saharan African countries, this study estimates the average female labor share in crop production at 40%. It is slightly above 50% in Malawi, Tanzania, and Uganda, and substantially lower in Nigeria (37%), Ethiopia (29%), and Niger (24%). There are no systematic differences across crops and activities, but female labor shares tend to be higher in households where women own a larger share of the land and when they are more educated...

BACKGROUND: Some studies, mainly in the older literature, observed a significant association between miscarriages and birth defects (BDs) occurring in the same sibship. However, few studies examined the BD/miscarriage relationship in depth. In addition nothing has been added to the underlying mechanisms possibly linking both events. The purpose of this work was to identify specific BDs associated with maternal miscarriages. In particular, it examined whether the risk depended on the number of losses, and to suggest the existence of specific factors for each BD/miscarriage association observed...

This study presents the numerical analysis of stem fixation in hip surgery using with/without cement methods since the use of cement is still controversial based on the clinical studies in the literature. Many different factors such as stress shielding, aseptic loosening, material properties of the stem, surgeon experiences etc. play an important role in the failure of the stem fixations. The stem fixation methods, cemented and uncemented, were evaluated in terms of mechanical failure aspects using computerized finite element method...
