Ribbing disease, or multiple diaphyseal sclerosis, is a rare diaphyseal sclerosis of unknown etiology. Patients with this pathology usually present with asymmetric pain limited to the lower extremities. Though all efforts are made to relieve the progressive pain associated with Ribbing disease, no medical or surgical treatments have been established yet. In this case report, we followed up a Ribbing case with sclerotic bone fenestration for 5 years. The radiological changes and the clinical effects are described, and the different Ribbing treatments are then briefly reviewed...

Roberto Tamma, Domenico Ribatti
Bone marrow (BM) is a source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). HSCs are localized in both the endosteum, in the so-called endosteal niche, and close to thin-walled and fenestrated sinusoidal vessel in the center of BM, in the so-called vascular niche. HSCs give rise to all types of mature blood cells through a process finely controlled by numerous signals emerging from the bone marrow niches where HSCs reside. This review will focus on the description of the role of BM niches in the control of the fate of HSCs and will also highlight the role of the BM niches in the regulation of vasculogenesis and angiogenesis...

Background Otosclerotic foci are usually seen as minute low-density lesions and this may be attributed to relatively low sensitivity on visual assessment using computed tomography (CT). Otosclerotic foci can be detected by using the accurate region of interest (ROI) setting, while small ROI settings by less-experienced radiologists may result in false negative findings. Purpose To evaluate the diagnostic ability of our proposed method ("otosclerosis-weighted" imaging [OWI]), which is based on reversing the density, compared with conventional CT (CCT) imaging alone...

Background The main symptoms of degenerative lumbar spinal canal stenosis are progressive back pain, spinal claudication, and, occasionally, sensory and motor deficits. Impairments particularly occur during walking, standing, and sitting. Thus social and vocational activities are increasingly restricted, causing considerable suffering for patients. Surgical therapies are superior to conservative ones. This article studies the outcome of 2-level fenestration versus hemilaminectomy for bisegmental spinal stenosis decompression...

A 53-year-old woman was found to have a left inferior homonymous quadrantanopia. Brain MRI disclosed a giant Virchow-Robin space compressing the right optic tract. After fenestration of this cystic lesion, most of the visual field loss resolved. Giant Virchow-Robin spaces may cause homonymous field defects which, with appropriate management, may improve.

Vibrio vulnificus can cause severe skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI). The pathogen is an opportunistic marine bacterium that is likely to infect patients with chronic liver disease, patients in an immunocompromised state, and those in end-stage renal disease. V. vulnificus gains entry through soft tissues by direct penetration of a wound by infected marine organisms, such as raw oysters, shellfish and other seafood, or by exposing a wound to contaminated water. Despite its ease of entry, V. vulnificus necrotising fasciitis with compartment syndrome has rarely been described...

Surgical approaches to endometriosis patients with chronic pelvic pain are multimodal and require individualization. Laparoscopic approaches are preferred over laparotomy when conservatively treating endometriosis via excision or ablation/fulguration of lesions. The available data support cystectomy over fenestration or fulguration for endometriomas; however, there may be associated decreases in ovarian reserve with endometrioma treatment. Presacral neurectomy may be useful in patients with midline pain and LUNA is not effective for the treatment of pelvic pain related to endometriosis...

BACKGROUND: Shunt-dependent hydrocephalus (SDH) is a well-known sequela following aneurysmal hemorrhage, adversely affecting the outcome after securing ruptured aneurysm. Fenestration of lamina terminalis (FLT) creates an anterior ventriculostomy, facilitates cerebrospinal fluid circulation and clot clearance in the basal cistern. However, controversy exists over whether microsurgical FLT during aneurysm repair can decrease the incidence of SDH. AIMS: The study is designed to determine the efficacy of lamina terminalis fenestration on the reduction of SDH after aneurysm clipping...

Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has become preferable treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms because of proven mortality reduction as well as complications reduction compared with open surgery. Endoleak remains a primary complication of EVAR, however, and occurs in 20 to 25% of the patients. EVAR patients thus undergo lifelong surveillance for the presence of aneurysm expansion and endoleaks usually via computed tomographic angiography. We describe the endovascular management of an enlarged aneurysmal sac size 3 years after EVAR due to combined endoleak of types 1 and 3...

Left subclavian artery (LSA) revascularization is recommended during elective thoracic endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (TEVAR) when coverage is required for adequate proximal seal. Reported method for LSA revascularization includes open bypass, covered stent placement using chimney technique, and in situ laser fenestration. We reported a novel technique using percutaneous Outback reentry device for LSA revascularization in a 68-year-old male patient who underwent TEVAR for a 9-cm thoracic aortic aneurysm...

Telocytes are a special type of interstitial cells characterized by distinctive cellular extensions with alternating thin segments (podomers) and dilations (podoms). Telocytes establish contact with various cells and structures, but their role in the regulation of the function of many cell types is still obscure. The aim of the current study was to investigate the morphology, histochemistry, and immunohistochemistry of telocytes, and their distribution, organization, and morphometric measurements in different layers of the adult bovine uterine tube...

This case presents surgical treatment of a unique form of syndactyly: an isolated fenestrated, complex, crisscross syndactyly of the right middle and ring fingers. A 2-year-old boy presented with the ring finger lying dorsal and the middle finger lying volar, with the middle phalanges syndactylized. A surgical release was performed with a subsequent z-plasty, 2 years later, for scar elongation. At the age of 4, he has essentially full function of his hand with minimal limitations. This case demonstrates that 2 digits that were syndactylized in a coronal plane (ring finger dorsal and middle finger volar) can be successfully surgically separated...

Yu-Ting van Loon, Maaike S Ibelings
A giant pseudocyst is a rare complication after hernioplasty and is seldom seen. The pathophysiology is unclear; it characteristically does not contain epithelial lining and can be considered giant if the diameter exceeds 10 cm. Pseudocysts are mostly described after incisional hernia repairs and are usually treated with surgical resection. We report a case of a giant pseudocyst three years after totally extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair. Laparoscopic fenestration without removing the pseudocyst with or without removal of the polypropylene mesh is a safe and effective minimal invasive approach to the treatment of a symptomatic pseudocyst and should also be considered in the approach of other large symptomatic cysts...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this work was to study physiological aortic arch three-dimensional displacement using non-rigid registration methods and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten healthy volunteers underwent thoracic MRI. Prospective cardiac gating was performed with a 3D turbo field echo sequence to obtain end-systolic and end-diastolic MR images. The rigid and elastic behavior between these two cardiac phases was detected and compared using either an affine or an elastic registration method...

Despite preventive methods, lymphoceles frequently form following kidney transplantation (KTx), with an incidence of 0.6%-51%. Here, we summarize the current strategies for preventing and managing this complication, and describe the approach used in our department. Rapid diagnosis and early treatment of lymphoceles through a well-defined approach can prevent or reduce the risk of organ loss. Diagnosis can be made by ultrasound, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging and laparoscopic fenestration is the current therapy of choice when non-surgical methods fail...

Five cases of ductal lesions with various anatomies have been successfully treated by thoracic endovascular aortic replacement in recent years; 4 using mainly fenestrated stent-grafts, and one using a non-fenestrated stent-graft. Considering the invasive nature of open surgery and the anatomical limitations of the catheter technique for occluding a patent ductus in many adult cases, thoracic endovascular aortic replacement should be the first option because of its broad applicability for ductal lesions.

REVIEW

Because of the inadequacies inherent to a circulation supported by a single ventricle, many Fontan patients will experience failure of their circulation. To date, there is no medical regimen that reliably and consistently restores circulatory function in these patients. Because of the shortage of donor organs and the fact that many of these patients present with features that either preclude or render heart transplantation a high risk, there is an intense need to better understand how mechanical circulatory support (MCS) may benefit these patients...

Despite increasing interest the last years, the choroid plexus still is a relatively understudied tissue in neuroscience. The choroid plexus contains fenestrated capillaries surrounded by tightly connected choroid plexus epithelial cells that form the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier. The choroid plexus is the main source of cerebrospinal fluid production, assures removal of toxic waste products, and acts as gatekeeper of the brain by the presence of resident inflammatory cells. Increasing evidence shows that choroid plexus' dysfunction, via altered secretory, transport, immune, and barrier function, plays a central role in a very diverse set of clinical conditions such as aging and the age-associated Alzheimer's disease...
