INTRODUCTION: Congenital stridor and dyspnoe are caused by laryngomalacia in most cases. AIM: In this article we present a new, surgical method for treating severe laryngomalacia in patients under the age of 1, where ultrapulsated (UDP) laser beam is used for supraglottoplasty. Ultra dream pulse laser creates lesser thermical side damage in the tissue, therefore the risk of postoperative laryngeal oedema and scarring is lower. METHOD: We present 10 cases and the endoscopic UDP-laser surgery of patients under the age of 1 with severe laryngomalacia...

BACKGROUND: Previous surveys reported a positive association between the length of the follicular phase and subsequent fertility in embryo transfer donor and Thoroughbred mares. However, it is unclear whether a longer oestrus positively influences fertilisation and oviductal development (oocyte quality, oviductal environment), or uterine receptivity and survival of the embryo in the uterus. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of length of oestrus (characterised by duration of endometrial oedema) on likelihood of pregnancy and early embryo loss (EEL) in recipient mares after embryo transfer (ET)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: MRI is a promising imaging method commonly used to assess muscle involvement in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM). MRI enables evaluation of both activity and damage and is therefore an ideal noninvasive diagnostic and monitoring tool. Despite its widespread use, there is no universally accepted method for scoring and reporting of MRI findings. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of systems used in the evaluation of MR images in patients with IIM...

The Rho-kinase/ROCK (Rho-associated coiled-coil-containing protein kinase) pathway is involved in the pathogenesis of multiple ocular and systemic disorders. Recently, ROCK inhibitors have been suggested as novel treatments for various ocular diseases. Several in vitro, in vivo and clinical studies have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of ROCK inhibitors in the management of ocular disorders such as corneal epithelial and endothelial damage, glaucoma, retinal and choroidal neovascularisation, diabetic macular oedema and optic nerve disorders...

INTRODUCTION: Advances in radiological imaging techniques have enabled volumetric measurements of meningiomas to be easily monitored using serial imaging scans. There is limited literature on the relationship between tumour growth rates and the WHO classification of meningiomas despite tumour growth being a major determinant of type and timing of intervention. Volumetric growth has been successfully used to assess growth of low-grade glioma; however, there is limited information on the volumetric growth rate (VGR) of meningiomas...

Ascites is common in patients with liver cirrhosis. It may present as a clinical manifestation in nephrotic syndrome in adults, typically with heart- or liver disease together with other oedema. We describe a 64-year-old male patient - with no liver or heart disease - with relapsing ascites and no other oedema, who was surprisingly diagnosed with primary membranous nephropathy (MN), and the autoantibody anti-PLA2R was positive. Through immunotherapy the ascites disappeared. Anti-PLA2R and anti-TSHD7A can be used in the diagnosis (primary/secondary MN) and may play a role in the treatment and prognosis...
