Orbital fractures are injuries frequently related to traumas of the midface. These fractures can be associated with ocular lesions, ranging from small abrasions on the cornea to serious complications such as hyphema and ocular globe rupture. Diplopia and ophthalmoplegia are common findings in orbital fractures. They can be caused by mechanical factors as bone fragments or muscle imprisonment. The aim of this study was to report a case of a 40-year patient, male showing diplopia and ophthalmoplegia due to the orbital fracture...

The most frequent ureteral lesions are iatrogenic, mainly due to gynecologic and urologic procedures. The resolution and repair of these lesions, when they require surgery, is often the performance of ureteroneocystostomy. We describe the technique for the repair of distal ureter lesions that preserves both anatomy and function of the urinary tract (1). The operation consists in dissection and extraction of the distal ureteral stump from its intramural tract to get at least 1 cm of free ureter, percutaneous insertion of a ureteral stent, checking the absence of tension between proximal ureter and distal dissected stump, end to end anastomosis and reinsertion of the distal ureter in the previously dissected bladder muscle layer...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic potential of smooth muscle protein of 22 kDa (SM22) as plasma biomarker for the detection of transmural intestinal ischemia. BACKGROUND: Acute mesenteric ischemia is an abdominal emergency requiring rapid diagnosis and treatment. Especially, detection of transmural damage is imperative because it mandates emergency surgery. Since early clinical and radiological signs are nonspecific, there is an urgent need for accurate biomarkers...

Intramedullary spinal cord tumors (IMSCTs) represent a rare entity, accounting for 4%-10% of all central nervous system tumors. Microsurgical resection of IMSCTs is currently considered the primary treatment modality. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) has been shown to aid in maximizing tumor resection and minimizing neurological morbidity, consequently improving patient outcome. The gold standard for IONM to date is multimodality monitoring, consisting of both somatosensory evoked potentials, as well as muscle-based transcranial electric motor evoked potentials (tcMEPs)...

We present a rare case of orbitocranial penetrating injury by a watercolor brush in a 3-year-old child. Injuries of this localization can affect important orbital structures (eyeball, blood vessels, nerves, muscles) and cause severe intracranial damages. In some cases, diagnosis of these injuries in children may be difficult due to the lack of marked clinical manifestations. The presented clinical case illustrates the approaches for choosing methods for diagnosis of injury in childhood and subsequent treatment options...

Growing evidence suggests the importance of microRNAs (miRNAs) in stress signaling pathways. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a potent cytokine that promotes the development of skeletal muscle fibrosis after acute contusion. However, how miRNAs are involved in TGF-β signaling and confer the robustness of TGF-β-induced fibrotic response remains to be fully elucidated. Here, we demonstrated that miR-146a-5p (miR-146) levels were reduced in a fibrotic mouse model after acute muscle contusion. It was also found that TGF-β treatment decreased the expression of miR-146 in vitro in a dose- and time-dependent manner...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) incorporates steatosis, non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH) and liver cirrhosis, associating with diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is protective of CVD. We aimed to determine whether TRAIL protects against insulin resistance, NAFLD and vascular injury. Twelve-week high fat diet (HFD)-fed Trail (-/-) mice had increased plasma cholesterol, insulin and glucose compared to wildtype. Insulin tolerance was impaired with TRAIL-deletion, with reduced p-Akt, GLUT4 expression and glucose uptake in skeletal muscle...

Cornea is an avascular transparent tissue. Ocular trauma caused by a corneal alkali burn induces corneal neovascularization (CNV), inflammation, and fibrosis, leading to vision loss. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Zerumbone (ZER) on corneal wound healing caused by alkali burns in mice. CNV was induced by alkali-burn injury in BALB/C female mice. Topical ZER (three times per day, 3μl each time, at concentrations of 5, 15, and 30μM) was applied to treat alkali-burned mouse corneas for 14 consecutive days...

Shoulder injuries in overhead throwing athletes are very common. Throwing volume and mechanical forces that are placed on the glenohumeral joint and associated soft tissue structures are contributors. Poor biomechanics and weak links in the kinetic chain place this athletic population at increased risk for shoulder injuries. Common biomechanical deficiencies in overhead throwing athletes typically involve poor sequential timing of muscle activity and insufficient coordination also presented in shoulder elevation and other functional tasks...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Sodium and proton magnetic resonance imaging ((23)Na/(1)H-MRI) have shown that muscle and skin can store Na(+) without water. In chronic renal failure and in heart failure, Na(+) mobilization occurs, but is variable depending on age, dialysis vintage, and other features. Na(+) storage depots have not been studied in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied 7 patients with AKI (mean age: 51.7 years; range: 25-84) and 14 age-matched and gender-matched healthy controls...

Septic shock, which is triggered by microbial products, is mainly characterised by inadequate tissue perfusion, which can lead to multiple organ dysfunction and death. An intense release of vasoconstrictors agents occurs in the early stages of shock, which can lead to ischemic injury. In this scenario, cGMP could play a key role in counterbalancing these agents and preventing tissue damage. Sildenafil, which is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, increases cGMP in smooth muscle cells and promotes vasodilation...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Pioglitazone (PIO), an antidiabetic drug, has been shown to attenuate vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation, which is a major event in atherosclerosis and restenosis after angioplasty. Till date, the likely contributory role of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) toward PIO inhibition of VSMC proliferation has not been examined in vivo. This study is aimed at determining whether pharmacological inhibition of AMPK would prevent the inhibitory effect of PIO on neointima formation in a mouse model of arterial injury...

Glucocorticoid steroids such as prednisone are prescribed for chronic muscle conditions such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, where their use is associated with prolonged ambulation. The positive effects of chronic steroid treatment in muscular dystrophy are paradoxical because these steroids are also known to trigger muscle atrophy. Chronic steroid use usually involves once-daily dosing, although weekly dosing in children has been suggested for its reduced side effects on behavior. In this work, we tested steroid dosing in mice and found that a single pulse of glucocorticoid steroids improved sarcolemmal repair through increased expression of annexins A1 and A6, which mediate myofiber repair...
