Natural medicines are often an attractive option for patients diagnosed with chronic conditions. Three main classes of bioactives that have been reported from marine mussel extracts include proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Commercially, the most relevant species of marine mollusks belong to two genera, Perna and Mytilus. Specifically, the Perna canaliculus species has been repeatedly demonstrated to harbor anti-inflammatory compounds such as omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFAs) that can ameliorate pro-inflammatory conditions, or proteins that can promote thrombin inhibitory activity...

Wilson disease is caused by the accumulation of copper in the liver, brain or other organs, due to the mutation in ATP7B gene, which encodes protein that helps in excretion of copper in the bile canaliculus. Clinical presentation varies from asymptomatic elevation of transaminases to cirrhosis with decompensation. Hepatocellular carcinoma is a known complication of cirrhosis, but a rare occurrence in Wilson disease. We present a case of neurological Wilson disease, who later developed decompensated cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma...

This article reports proximal lacrimal system parameters using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (ASOCT-Visante) in an apparently normal Asian Indian population with assessment of any correlation between tear meniscus height and punctal diameter. This was a prospectively designed observational study that included healthy adults, who volunteered for optical coherence tomography imaging (OCT) of their proximal lacrimal system. Time domain ASOCT (Visante) images of the punctum and proximal canaliculus were captured using the high resolution corneal scan protocol...

BACKGROUND: The hypopharyngeal gland of worker bees contributes to the production of the royal jelly fed to queens and larvae. The gland consists of thousands of two-cell units that are composed of a secretory cell and a duct cell and that are arranged in sets of about 12 around a long collecting duct. RESULTS: By fluorescent staining, we have examined the morphogenesis of the hypopharyngeal gland during pupal life, from a saccule lined by a pseudostratified epithelium to the elaborate organ of adult worker bees...

Canaliculoceles are rare, and under-recognized lesions of the upper lacrimal drainage system that may present as medial canthal masses or swelling. The current case is that of an 85-year-old female patient presented with a painful right upper lid medial, cystic swelling of 10-day duration involving the punctum and the upper canaliculus. A literature review showed that this is the seventh reported case of a canaliculocele but the first case of acute onset that is associated with inflammatory signs and symptoms and accumulation of purulent material...

The retro- and hypotympanum are hidden areas of the middle ear, only poorly recognized. Nevertheless, this region is of relevant clinical significance, since it is regularly affected by disease such as cholesteatoma. The aim of this study is to explore and describe the anatomical variants of the hypo- and retrotympanum by the means of transcanal endoscopy. We hypothesize a significant variability of this hidden region of the middle ear. Moreover, we believe that the minimal invasive, endoscopic access is suitable since angled scopes may be used to explore the region...

PURPOSE: To describe a case of keratoconjunctivitis sicca treated with punctal plug placement with the first reported complication of subsequent plug erosion through the canaliculus and extrusion through the lid. METHODS: Punctal plugs were placed in a patient with Sjogren syndrome for treatment of keratoconjunctivitis sicca. More than 12 years later, the plug was noted to have eroded through the canaliculus and extruded through the conjunctiva and lid. RESULTS: The extruded plug was removed, and punctal cautery was performed on 2 other puncta with improved symptom control...

Canaliculops is a noninflammatory and noninfectious ectasia of the canaliculus with serous fluid accumulation. Currently, the etiology is uncertain. To the best of the authors' knowledge only 6 confirmed cases have been published earlier; however, the imaging features were not described. The authors report the ultrasound biomicroscopic and ocular coherence tomography features of a histopathologically proven canaliculops.

BACKGROUND: Mechanical load-induced intraosseous pressure gradients may result in some fluid stimuli effects, such as fluid flow and fluid shear stress (FSS), which may enable bone cells to detect external mechanical signals. Interstitial bone fluid flow is known to occur in lacunar-canalicular porosity (PLC). METHODS: In order to characterize lacunar-canalicular fluid flow behavior, a hierarchical osteon system is developed. The osteon is modeled as a poroelastic annular cylinder with two types of impermeable boundary cases considered on its outer wall: one is elastic restrained (Case I), whereas the other is displacement confined (Case II)...

Kaveh Vahdani, Vladimir Theodor Thaller
PURPOSE: To describe a new, simple, quick, and minimally invasive surgical technique for managing medial canthal tendon laxity. METHODS: The technique works by creating a directed posterior lamellar scar. Sutures are preplaced in firm medial canthal tissue, and a triangular diathermy burn is made between this fixation point and the medial tarsal plate (sparing the canaliculus). This area is then plicated horizontally by bringing the preplaced sutures through the medial tarsal plate...

PURPOSE: Few studies have focused on the intranasal localization of the lacrimal sac during endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy: landmarks in order to find the medial wall of the lacrimal sac have been described, but there is a lack of description of methods for the verification of the complete marsupialization of the lacrimal sac during surgery. In this report, we propose an easy and effective method for certain intraoperative identification of lacrimal sac. METHODS: A method in order to verify the effective marsupialization of the lacrimal sac is applied and described: to ensure that the opening of the sac in the nasal cavity is complete, the surgeon should identify the Rosenmuller valve, which is the end of the common canaliculus in the lacrimal sac...

PURPOSE: Epiphora is sometimes associated with an absent or occluded lacrimal drainage punctum (or puncta). This study uses noninvasive "enhanced depth" anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) to give improved characterization and understanding of absent or fully occluded puncta and the underlying canaliculus. METHODS: Anterior segment spectral domain OCT images were collected prospectively from 9 lower puncta of 6 patients with epiphora and absent or fully occluded puncta, not amenable to dilation in clinic, to see if a canaliculus was visible on OCT imaging below the occluded punctum...
