OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate outcomes of stent implantation (SI) for recurrent coarctation of the aorta (RC) following the Norwood operation. BACKGROUND: RC is common following the Norwood operation. Balloon angioplasty (BA) is standard treatment but may result in unsatisfactory relief of RC. SI may improve RC, but outcome data are limited. METHODS: We performed a multi-center retrospective study of patients who underwent SI for RC between the Norwood operation and Fontan completion...

This study aimed to discover whether 2-year-olds can socially learn to think divergently. Two-year-olds (N = 22) who saw an experimenter model a high level of divergent thinking on the Unusual Box Test (modelling 25 different actions, once each) went on to demonstrate a higher level of divergent thinking themselves than (N = 22) children who saw a low level of modelling (five different actions, once each), where divergent thinking was measured by the number of different actions children produced that had not been modelled by the experimenter...

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) is one of the most challenging congenital heart defects which require surgical interventions during neonatal period. In normal risk cohort, its surgical outcome has been improved dramatically since Dr. William Norwood reported the 1st successful case more than 30 years ago. The introduction of routine bilateral pulmonary artery banding with subsequent Norwood operation during early infantile( we call it as "rapid 2 stage Norwood operation") has brought an earlier hemodynamic stabilization after Norwood operation...

CONTEXT: There are very few studies evaluating efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in hair restoration and its combination with microneedling. As far as ascertained, there is no study to evaluate efficacy of microneedling with PRP plus topical minoxidil (5%) versus topical minoxidil (5%) alone in androgenetic alopecia (AGA). AIMS: This study aims (1) to compare the efficacy of (a) topical minoxidil (5%) alone and (b) topical minoxidil (5%) + microneedling with PRP in men between 18 and 50 years with AGA Grade III to V vertex (Norwood-Hamilton scale) and (2) to perform objective and subjective evaluation based on clinical improvement and photographic evidence...

BACKGROUND: Hair follicles are known to contain a well-characterized niche for adult stem cells: the bulge, which contains epithelial and melanocytic stem cells. Stem cells in the hair bulge, a clearly demarcated structure within the lower permanent portion of hair follicles, can generate the interfollicular epidermis, hair follicle structures, and sebaceous glands. The bulge epithelial stem cells can also reconstitute in an artificial in vivo system to a new hair follicle. METHODS: In this study, we have developed a new method to isolate human adult stem cells by mechanical centrifugation of punch biopsy from human hair follicles without culture condition...

BACKGROUND: Double inlet left ventricle (DILV) is a heterogeneous single ventricle anomaly in which initial presentation, and consequently, timing and palliation mode vary based on morphology and degree of pulmonary or systemic outflow obstruction. Very few reports, mostly old, focused on palliation outcomes of DILV. We report current-era results and examine whether morphologic and subsequently surgical factors influence survival. METHODS: Fifty-eight infants with DILV underwent single ventricle palliation...

The circumflex aorta is a rare type of true vascular ring anomaly. It consists of a retroesophageal right aortic arch, a left-sided descending thoracic aorta, and a left-sided ligamentum arteriosum. The "aortic uncrossing procedure" described by Planché and Lacour-Gayet is the procedure of choice for managing this aortic anomaly in patients with a biventricular heart. The presence of a circumflex aorta in a patient with heterotaxy syndrome and univentricular congenital heart disease requiring Norwood palliation is highly unusual...

BACKGROUND: Androgenic treatment of female-to-male transgender patients may result in androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Use of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors are useful as oral treatment of AA in men. There are no previous studies of the use of finasteride in transgender men as treatment of AGA. AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an oral 5α-reductase inhibitor (finasteride) for AA developed in transgender men. METHODS: This single-centre retrospective study enrolled female-to-male transgender patients with a clinical diagnosis of AGA to receive 1 mg of an oral type II 5α-reductase inhibitor for at least 12 months...

Background -In infants requiring three-stage single ventricle palliation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome, attrition after the Norwood procedure remains significant. The effect of the timing of stage-2-palliation (S2P), a physician-modifiable factor, on long term survival is not well understood. We hypothesized that an optimal interval between the Norwood and S2P that both minimizes pre-S2P attrition and maximizes post-S2P survival exists and is associated with individual patient characteristics. Methods -The NIH/NHLBI Pediatric Heart Network Single Ventricle Reconstruction Trial public dataset was used...

Late diagnosis and late referral for the Norwood stage 1 procedure in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome is rare and associated with a higher mortality. We present a case of a cyanotic almost five-week-old infant with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, highly restrictive foramen ovale, and patent ductus arteriosus, who was bridged with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation to the Norwood stage 1 procedure.

A large body of evidence that has accumulated over the past decade strongly supports the role of inflammation in the pathophysiology of human epilepsy. Specific inflammatory molecules and pathways have been identified that influence various pathologic outcomes in different experimental models of epilepsy. Most importantly, the same inflammatory pathways have also been found in surgically resected brain tissue from patients with treatment-resistant epilepsy. New antiseizure therapies may be derived from these novel potential targets...
