María A Rossin, Pablo N De Francesco, Juan T Timi
Dactylogyridae is overwhelmingly the most abundant and diverse taxon among monogeneans in continental waters of South America. Their small body size requires considerable sampling effort and training for collecting and identifying the worms from the gills, skin, nasal cavities, and other microhabitats. Indeed, diagnostic characteristics as sclerites and male copulatory complex are generally less than 100-μm long and are essential for taxonomic description and identification of species. Here, a combination of simple and routine methods for three-dimensional morphological studies on hard structures is proposed for dactylogirids: SDS treatment for clarification of specimens and enzymatic digestion with proteinase K for freeing sclerotized structures, followed by laser confocal microscopy...

The palatine aponeurosis is a thin, fibrous lamella comprising the extended tendons of the tensor veli palatini muscles, attached to the posterior border and inferior surface of the palatine bone. In dentistry, the relationship between the "vibrating line" and the border of the hard and soft palate has long been discussed. However, to our knowledge, there has been no discussion of the relationship between the palatine aponeurosis and the vibrating line(s). Twenty sides from ten fresh frozen White cadaveric heads (seven males and three females) whose mean age at death was 79 years) were used in this study...

Vaccination has been one of the most successful strategies to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by respiratory infections. Recent evidence suggests that differences in the host genetic background and environmental factors may contribute to heterogeneity in the immune response to vaccination. During pre-clinical testing, vaccines are often evaluated in a single mouse inbred strain, which may not translate well to the heterogeneous human population. Here, we examined the influence of host genetic background on vaccine-induced protection against pneumococcal colonization in two commonly used inbred mouse strains, i...

In this article, we present a case of recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy not caused by nerve injury but due to local anesthetic infiltration that was applied prior to central venous catheterization. A 47-year-old female patient was admitted to emergency room with fatigue and nausea and was diagnosed with acute renal failure. Right jugular venous catheterization was performed for emergency hemodialysis with Seldinger technique using middle approach. Within minutes and immediately after the procedure the patient complained of hoarseness and shortness of breath, and she had stridor in her physical exam...

REVIEW
Andrew Y Lee, Marvin P Fried, Marc Gibber
The convergence of technology and medicine has led to many advances in surgical training. Novel surgical simulators have led to significantly improved skills of graduating surgeons, leading to decreased time to proficiency, improved efficiency, decreased errors, and improvement in patient safety. Endoscopic sinus surgery poses a steep learning curve given the complex 3-dimensional anatomy of the nasal and paranasal cavities, and the necessary visual-spatial motor skills and bimanual dexterity. This article focuses on surgical simulation in rhinological training and how innovative high-fidelity and low-fidelity simulators can maximize resident training and improve procedural skills before operating in the live environment...

Objective: To explore the feasibility and therapeutic effect of single-staged Han-uvulopalatopharyngoplasty with septoplasty in adults with obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome. Methods: Ninety six cases with OSAHS were diagnosed by polysomnography, and they all had retropalatal obstruction and deviation of nasal septum. Patients were divided into study group(48 cases) and control group(48 cases) randomly. Cases in study group were simultaneously treated with Han-uvulopalatopharyngoplasty and septoplasty, while cases in control group were only treated with Han-uvulopalatopharyngoplasty...

PURPOSE: Intensive exercise modifies airway inflammation and infection susceptibility. We aimed to determine the effect of exercise on pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokine (TNF-α, IL-1ra, IL-10) and innate immunity protein (HSPA1, sCD14) levels in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and nasal secretions of competitive athletes, non-exercising asthmatics and healthy controls (HC). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group consisted of 15 competitive athletes (five speed skaters and ten swimmers) aged 15-25...

PLA-α-asarone nanoparticles were prepared by using organic solvent evaporation method, and their in vivo distribution and brain targeting after intranasal administration were studied as compared with intravenous administration. The results showed that brain targeting coefficient of PLA-α-asarone nanoparticles after intranasal and intravenous administration was 1.65 and 1.16 respectively. The absolute bioavailability, brain-targeting efficiency and the percentage of nasal-brain delivery of PLA-α-asarone nanoparticles were 74...

The Javan rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) of Ujung Kulon National Park (UKNP) is the crown jewel of Indonesia's rich natural history. The park lies on a peninsula surrounded by coastline and agriculture-dominated landscapes. The invasion of water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) into the park carries a substantial health risk to the Javan rhinoceros and threatens plans to establish a new population outside of its only current range in UKNP. Hemorrhagic septicemia (HS), known locally as septicemia epizootica and caused by Pasteurella multocida B:2, could thwart Indonesia's efforts to expand the range of the Javan rhinoceros...

Non invasive ventilation (NIV) has a well established role in the treatment of acute-on-chronic respiratory failure and cardiogenic pulmonary oedema. Its role in acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure has been increasingly investigated, but its impact on the management and the outcome of the subset of patients affected by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is still to be determined. ARDS could be a risk factor for NIV failure and in these patient delayed endotracheal intubation can lead to an increased mortality...

INTRODUCTION: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea results from an abnormal communication of the dura mater to the nasal mucosa. The majority of cases of CSF rhinorrhea are the result of trauma or surgery involving the skull base. Spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea is a rare clinical entity with increased risk of ascending infection. Delay in diagnosis places the patient at risk of developing meningitis. CASE PRESENTATION: A 36-year-old African American female with significant medical history of obesity and hypertension presented to the emergency department with headache, altered level of consciousness, fever, and neck stiffness...
