Empty follicle syndrome (EFS) is a disorder associated with female infertility and presents as a complete failure to retrieve oocytes during ART cycles despite normal follicle development and careful aspiration. To date, only two EFS cases have been reported with homozygous missense mutations in the luteinizing hormone/chorionic gonadotropin receptor (LHCGR) gene, and both cases showed normal estradiol (E2) production during ovulation induction. The molecular genetic mechanisms of EFS remain unknown. Herein, we report two novel homozygous inactivating LHCGR mutations, c...

There are limited treatment options for patients with a chronic refractory greater trochanteric pain syndrome. Orthobiologic interventions may stimulate tendon healing and improve pain and function in patients who fail the standard conservative treatment. Since the US FDA's new position statement regarding the centrifugation of bone marrow aspirate products as a potentially 'more than minimally manipulated' product, there is a growing concern about the most common bone marrow aspirate concentrate technique...

BACKGROUND: The approach to intrapartum and postnatal management of an infant born through meconium-stained amniotic fluid (MSAF) in the delivery room (DR) has changed several times over the last few decades, leading to confusion and anxiety among health care providers (nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, midwives, and physicians). This article provides state-of-the-art insight into the evidence or lack thereof for the changes in guidelines. PURPOSE: To discuss the evidence for evolution of DR management of vigorous and nonvigorous infants born through any type of MSAF...

Haemophagocytic syndrome, or haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), is a disorder with high mortality, typically recognised at paediatric age. Without proper treatment, HLH can be fatal. The risk of a rapid progression to multi-organ failure and central nervous system involvement leading to long-term sequelae, are the most feared consequences of a diagnostic delay. Therefore, HLH is a medical emergency that paediatricians should be able to identify in a patient with fever and progressive worsening of general condition...

Central sleep apnea is characterized by frequent cessation of breathing during sleep, resulting in repetitive episodes of insufficient ventilation and abnormalities of acid-base balance. It may be primary or secondary, and it is uncommon in children, with limited data for this population. We present here the case of a five-year-old girl, known to have thoracolumbar myelomeningocele (for which she underwent a surgical procedure in infancy), secondary hydrocephalus (with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt) and flaccid paralysis, who was admitted in our hospital with prolonged fever syndrome, productive cough, severe dyspnea and perioral cyanosis...

Both transient tachypnea of the newborn and neonatal respiratory distress syndrome have been associated with changes in gene expression of aquaporine-5 (AQP5) and the β subunit of the epithelial sodium channel (β-ENaC) in the respiratory epithelium. Gastric aspirate (GA) obtained immediately after birth could represent a new source for gene expression analysis for these respiratory diseases. The aims of this study were to determine the feasibility of estimating AQP5 and β-ENaC gene expression in exfoliated respiratory epithelial cells from the GA of term neonates, and to compare the values with those found in scraped nasal epithelial cells, previously validated as a surrogate for distal lung epithelium in terms of ionic channel activity...

Background: Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2 ) is a potential therapeutic target in acute coronary syndromes. Although recent evidence does not support the routine use of manual thrombus aspiration (TA) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI), the use of TA is associated with a significant improvement in myocardial reperfusion, especially in patients with high thrombus burden (HTB). We hypothesized that TA would reduce the serum Lp-PLA2 levels in STEMI patients undergoing PPCI with HTB...

The approach to the management of meconium-stained newborns in the delivery room has been changing for over 40 years. The goal is to prevent meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) and complications related to MAS. For decades, airway obstruction was believed to be a major component of MAS and, consequently, suction maneuvers to remove meconium from the airways were recommended to decrease the frequency and severity of MAS. Initial recommendations were based on observational studies. However, the incidence of MAS and mortality related to MAS has declined since the 1970s, mostly because of a decrease in the number of postterm deliveries...
