Collagenofìbrotic (collagen type III) glomerulopathy (CG) is a rare nonimmune-mediated glomerular disease. It is characterized by massive deposition of organized collagen type III fibers, which is localized in the mesangial and subendothelial glomerular areas and associated with increased serum levels of procollagen type III peptide. Association with systemic diseases and malignancies is extremely rare. Herein, we present a case of a nine-year-old girl, known case of type I diabetes mellitus, who presented with fever, nephrotic range proteinuria, generalized edema, and hypertension...

Valproic acid is an effective, frequently used anticonvulsant drug. Typical adverse effects include weight gain, hair loss, and nausea. Hyperpigmentation, onycholysis, and onychomadesis are nail changes that can be seen after valproic acid use. Changes occur at the distal and proximal portions of the nail bed in onycholysis and onychomadesis, respectively. Onychomadesis is a very rare disease of childhood with the exception of systemic and genetic diseases. Here, we present a child aged 23 months, the youngest and the earliest isolated patient with onychomadesis, which occurred after valproic acid treatment and worried the family but resolved spontaneously...

Monitoring cardiovascular signals such as heart rate and blood flow provides critically important healthcare information about patients under medical care. However, when the sensors are worn for extended times, the sensors sometimes require higher mechanical compatibility with soft deformable tissues. In this paper, we report an attachable and flexible pulse sensor (bending radius: 2.4 mm), integrated with micro-inorganic photodetectors (thickness: 4.1 μm, photocurrent: 8.99 μA under 1.5 mW/cm(2)) and a red light emitting diode (620 nm), to monitor vital signals for extended times...

INTRODUCTION: Trochanteric fractures are frequent and generally associated with bone fragility. There is still debate on the best fixation device to treat stable or rather stable trochanteric fractures: we report our clinical and radiological results of fixation with Proximal Femoral Nail "antirotation" (PFNa) in a population of patients compared to a control group treated by Sliding Hip Screw (SHS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective study was conducted in 71 consecutive patients treated by PFNa (group A), and 69 by a SHS (group B), with a mean age of 81...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgical operation of intramedullary (IM) nailing is a standard technique for treating diaphyseal fractures. However, in addition to its advantages, there are some drawbacks such as the frequent occurrence of malalignment, physical fatigue and high radiation exposure to medical staff. The use of robotic and navigation techniques is promising treatments for femoral fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This paper presents a novel robot-assisted manipulator for femoral shaft fracture reduction with indirect contact with the femur...

MCAM/CD146 (melanoma cell adhesion molecule/CD146) is a transmembrane immunoglobulin superfamily cell adhesion molecule involved in transendothelial migration and signal transduction. It is expressed in melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, prostatic, ovarian, cervical and endometrial cancers and promotes tumour growth, angiogenesis and metastasis. Melanoma is the most common malignant oral tumour of dogs and also arises in the skin, nail bed and footpad. The aim of this study was to investigate the immunohistochemical expression of MCAM/CD146 in 51 canine melanomas, including oral, cutaneous and ocular tumours...

Among various infections, chronic osteomyelitis is one of the most challenging in terms of treatment. This infection is more common among patients with open fractures and those who have undergone elective orthopedic procedures. The treatment of osteomyelitis requires high antibiotic doses and an aggressive and multifaceted surgical approach. The use of parenteral antibiotics alone, without debridement, is not sufficiently effective, due to the formation of sequestra and the low vascularity of the affected area...

BACKGROUND: Several recreational activities such as roller skating, skateboarding, and scooter riding create the risk for hand injuries, which are the fourth most commonly injured body part in relation to their use. Seymour first identified a specific pattern of digit injury as an open fracture affecting the distal phalangeal physis associated with nail avulsion from the eponychial fold. In this article, we report a series of Seymour fractures associated with misuse of the newly emerging recreational/transportation vehicle, the hoverboard...

Despite the improvement of surgical techniques surgical site infections (SSIs) still remain a significant clinical burden in high risk patients undergoing osteosynthesis for tibia fractures. The use of an antibiotic coated implant might reduce the adhesion of bacteria on the implant surface and could therefore reduce the rate of implant-related infection or osteomyelitis. In this prospective multicenter study the use of a gentamicin-coated tibia nail for the treatment of open and closed tibia fractures and non-union revision cases was evaluated in 100 patients (99 treated) followed for 18 months...

BACKGROUND: Primary hemiarthroplasty was recommended by some surgeons as the preferred choice in treating unstable senile intertrochanteric fractures with osteoporosis. However, many studies reported that proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) currently was as an optimal implant for the treatment of different type of intertrochanteric fractures. Which method is better for treating senile intertrochanteric fractures remains controversial due to the insufficient clinical evidences. METHODS: We reviewed all consecutive senile intertrochanteric fractures treated with PFNA or cemented hemiarthroplasty at our institution between July 2010 and March 2015...

Onychomycosis is a common nail disease with numerous etiological pathogens. In order to determine and trend the local mycological pattern of culture-positive diseased nail samples sent from the Department of Dermatology, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, a five-year retrospective audit was carried out, which revealed that non-dermatophyte molds were the predominant fungi isolated, followed by yeasts and dermatophytes. This is similar to two previous studies in Malaysia, but varies greatly from other studies around the world which showed a dermatophyte-predominant prevalence...
