Cholestasis is the stoppage of bile flow which could lead to serious clinical complications if not managed. Cytotoxic bile acids are involved in the pathogenesis of liver injury during cholestasis. There are no promising pharmacological interventions against cholestasis and its associated complications. This study examined the impact of glycine supplementation on liver mitochondria as a major target of bile acids-induced toxicity during cholestasis. Mice underwent BDL operation and received glycine (0.25% and 1% w:v in drinking water)...

BACKGROUND: Over 75 years ago, endolymphatic hydrops was discovered as the pathologic correlate of Menière's disease. However, this pathologic finding could be ascertained only in postmortem histologic studies. Due to this diagnostic dilemma and the variable manifestation of the various audiovestibular symptoms, diagnostic classification systems based on clinical findings have been used hitherto. METHODS: A review of the literature of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of hydropic ear disease...

In this study, we report the experience of a pre gestational thalassemia screening program at a single center in Southern China. Free thalassemia screening, genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis (PND) for couples planning pregnancy were implemented over a 2-year period. Among a total of 83,062 screened individuals (41,531 couples), the allele frequencies of β-thalassemia (β-thal), - -(SEA) and - -(THAI) deletions were 3.79, 5.75 and 0.028%, respectively. Out of the 41,531 couples, 11,039 couples had at least one partner who had a positive screening test; of these, 455 at-risk couples (1...

This series and literature review aimed to prenatally characterize the nature of axillary lymphangioma. A total of 30 cases, including our 5 cases, were analyzed. Insights gained from this review are as follows: Septate and nonseptate cysts seem to be different entities. The nonseptate type tends to be small and transient but more highly associated with aneuploidies. Septate cysts are very rarely associated with other abnormalities and hydrops fetalis, unlike cystic hygroma colli, but are more progressive with gestational age and associated with adverse outcomes...

A 1-year-old, female spayed, domestic shorthair cat presented for blepharospasm of the right eye. Slit-lamp biomicroscopic examination showed focal corneal ulceration and presumptive keratomalacia of the right eye. Examination of the left eye was normal apart from a focal endothelial opacity. Within the first 24 h of medical management, the right eye developed marked corneal edema and globular anterior protrusion of the corneal surface consistent with feline acute corneal hydrops (FACH). Surgical management consisted of a bridge conjunctival graft, nictitating membrane flap, and temporary tarsorrhaphy...

Fetal hydrops is a serious complication of immune-mediated congenital complete atrioventricular block. We present the case of a fetus with severe hydrops and profound bradycardia and an unusual favourable outcome. This case enhances the importance of considering the contribution of ventricular ectopic beats to the cardiac output when counselling and predicting outcome of complete heart block.

Although tannery effluents are known for being highly toxic to organisms, reports about the effects of the intake of these xenobiotics on experimental mammal models are recent. Studies about the damages the chronic intake of these effluents can cause in the liver of outbred mice remain an unexplored field. Thus, the aim of the present study is to assess (histological) the hepatic condition of Swiss mice (outbred strain) chronically exposed to the intake of different raw tannery effluent concentrations diluted in water for 150 days...

REVIEW
Francesca Bonvicini, Gloria Bua, Giorgio Gallinella
Parvovirus B19 (B19V) is a human pathogenic virus associated with a wide range of clinical conditions. In pregnancy, B19V poses a potential hazard to the fetus as crossing the placental barrier and infecting erythroid progenitor cells in bone marrow and liver, it blocks fetal erythropoiesis leading to profound anemia, hydrops and/or fetal death. The virus is not regarded as a teratogen, however more scientific awareness is emerging on mechanisms and consequences of intrauterine infection and possible sequelae in the neonatal development...

Detection of endolymphatic hydrops is important for diagnosing Meniere's disease, and can be performed non-invasively using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in animal models as well as potentially in the clinic. Here, we developed ELHnet, a convolutional neural network to classify endolymphatic hydrops in a mouse model using learned features from OCT images of mice cochleae. We trained ELHnet on 2159 training and validation images from 17 mice, using only the image pixels and observer-determined labels of endolymphatic hydrops as the inputs...

The advent of the endoscope has facilitated otological surgery in recent years. Advances in optical technology have led to the development of high definition visualisation, such as 4K magnification. Narrow band imaging (NBI) has been shown to improve visualisation of tissue based on varying degrees of vascularity. This is a feasibility study, the first of its kind, aiming to investigate the appearances of middle ear anatomy and pathology (tympanic membrane, tympanosclerosis, cholesteatoma, granulation, endolymphatic sac hydrops, otosclerosis) under the NBI filter, using a high definition 4K endoscope...

OBJECTIVES: Polyhydramnios and placentomegaly are commonly observed in nonimmune hydrops fetalis (NIHF); however, whether their ultrasonographic identification is relevant for prognosis is controversial. We evaluated outcomes of fetal or neonatal death and preterm birth (PTB) in cases of NIHF alone and in those with polyhydramnios and/or placentomegaly (P/PM). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort of singletons with NIHF evaluated between 1994 and 2013. Nonimmune hydrops fetalis was defined as 2 or more abnormal fluid collections, including ascites, pericardial effusion, pleural effusion, and skin edema...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the incidence and severity of preeclampsia in pregnancies complicated by fetal hydrops. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of singleton gestations from 2005-2008 in California. The primary predictor was fetal hydrops and the primary outcome was preeclampsia. Selected adverse maternal and neonatal events were assessed as secondary outcomes. Potential confounders examined included fetal anomalies, polyhydramnios, race/ethnicity, nulliparity, chronic hypertension, and gestational or pregestational diabetes mellitus...

OBJECTIVE: The presence of endolymphatic hydrops in the inner ear, which can be detected with gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (Gd-MRI), is widely recognized as the main pathological cause of Ménière's disease (MD). However, the precise mechanisms underlying the development of endolymphatic hydrops remains unclear. One hypothesis proposes a relationship between the presence of a high jugular bulb (HJB) and MD, which disrupts the vestibular aqueduct leading to the development of endolymphatic hydrops...

SIFD describes a heritable, syndromic condition characterised principally by sideroblastic anaemia (SA) with immunodeficiency, fevers and developmental delay, arising in mutations within the TRNT1 gene. Other clinical manifestations of SIFD include cardiomyopathy, seizures, sensorineural hearing loss, renal dysfunction, metabolic abnormalities, hepatosplenomegaly and retinitis pigmentosa.Presentation of SIFD is variable but typically in early childhood with SA or with fever. In this report, we extend the described SIFD phenotype...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation has been recently indicated as an ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure for placental support in patients with a large thoracic mass. In our case, a foetus with truncus arteriosus communis and hydrops with ventricular failure due to severe truncal valve stenosis was delivered under ex utero intrapartum treatment-to-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation at 34 weeks of gestation. The neonate underwent truncal valve plasty. He could be weaned off extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, but he died because of the infection on postnatal Day 24...
