BACKGROUND: As the survival rate of preterm infants constantly improves, knowledge on the impact of prematurity on long-term health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is important for clinical and parental guidance. We aimed to assess HRQoL in a national cohort of young adolescents born very preterm, and to identify predictors for poorer HRQoL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All surviving Swiss live-born children below 30weeks of gestation during the year 2000 (290 subjects) were contacted at age 12years, together with their parents (262 families)...

PURPOSE: Urodynamic studies are crucial to neuropathic bladder management and they often determine surgical intervention. However, current evidence indicates that interpretations show poor agreement across physicians. We sought to determine the interrater reliability of urodynamic interpretation in our practice. We hypothesized that there would be strong correlation among pediatric urologists of similar training in a single academic practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients with neuropathic bladder who underwent urodynamics at our institution between 2014 and 2015...

For treatment of patients with diseases of lower limb arteries and prevention of cardiovascular complications in high-risk patients (those with diabetes mellitus, arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity) permanent antiplatelet therapy is indicated. A problem is variable individual sensitivity to therapeutic agents. For antiplatelet therapy in patients with atherosclerosis of lower limb arteries there has been obtained an evidence-supported base concerning efficacy of long-term administration of clopidogrel preparations, unlike patients with acute coronary syndrome, for whom there has been accumulated an evidence-confirmed base of administering clopidogrel preparations, as well as ticagrelor and prasugrel in various clinical situations...

A cat with multiple subcutaneous nodules suggesting a soft tissue sarcoma by physical and computed tomographic examination was diagnosed as being affected by subcutaneous filariosis based on cytologic and ultrasonographic assessments. Nodules were surgically removed and extracted nematodes were identified by PCR as Dirofilaria repens. Furthermore, DNA of Dipetalonema dracunculoides (syn. Acantocheilonema dracunculoides) was detected by PCR, with no evidence of circulating microfilariae. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this represents the first report describing adults of D repens in multiple subcutaneous nodules in a cat...

Clubfoot, known as congenital talipes equinovarus, is one of the complex paediatric foot deformity with the incidence of 1 in every 1000 live births. It consists of four complex foot abnormalities such as forefoot adductus, midfoot cavus, and hindfoot varus and ankle equinus. There are a number of surgical techniques (soft tissue releases, arthrodesis) used to correct clubfoot. However currently the conservative management (manipulation, serial casting, and braces) of clubfoot is considered as the best choice and it is widely accepted among orthopaedists...

INTRODUCTION: During laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), adhesions between the stomach and the pancreas are sometimes found, forming a "gastropancreatic ligament" (GPL). However, the GPL has only been described once in the literature, in 1985. The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of the GPL during LSG, describe this structure and assess its effect on the surgical technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All patients undergoing primary LSG in our institution (n=240) and patients referred for gastric fistula (GF) after primary LSG (n=18) between January 2015 and December 2015 were included...
