Studies in general have demonstrated that patients with Obstructive sleep apnea have a small retropositioned mandible, narrow posterior airway space, enlarged tongue and soft palate, inferiorly positioned hyoid bone, and retroposition of the maxilla.60 Frequent observations with Sleep Apnea syndrome refer to micromandible, macroglossia, velar dysfunction and soft tissue hyperplasia. 61 Lowe et al62 reported similar observations i.e posterior positioning of maxilla and the mandible, steeper mandibular planes and occlusal planes and increased anterior face height. A retruded position of the chin goes hand in hand with a retruded position of the associated tongue. The sagittal reductions of the cranial base and upper face coexisted with reduced pharyngeal opening. Soft palate elongation, retruded position of the maxilla and the retruded position of the chin with tongue are three major morphological deviations to be evaluated when anatomical rehabilitation of the pharynx is to be
Meckel’s diverticulum is the most prevalent congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract associated with many diverse and unusual complications has an incidence of 2- 3% (1) . Meckel’s Diverticulum is a true diverticulum comprising all intestinal layers. It is usually an incidental finding. Strangulation of Meckel’s diverticulum (Littre’s Hernia) is a rare anatomo -clinical form. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment.
TAVI is an invasive procedure to aortic valve. In this invasive surgery a new valve that is a stainless steel tube with biological materials of cows, is inserted through a balloon catheter to the heart. This procedure can be done with local or general anaesthetic. This new valve insertion can be done with two common ways. Firstly is the transfemoral, which means through the femoral artery or second common way is the transapical way that is through a small cut to the left side to the chest.
There is hypoesthesia at the anterolateral aspect of foot and ankle of an incomplete nature noted at L5, and S1 dermatome level, bilaterally. There is weakness in the big toe dorsiflexor and big toe plantar flexor noted, bilaterally. There is facet joint tenderness at L3, L4, and L5 levels, bilaterally. There is muscle weakness and deficit over anterior abdominal wall. There is tenderness over left inguinal area with positive cough impulse.
Treatment must begin in a timely manner. The specifics of treatment depend on the etiology of the edema. Surgery may be needed if the edema is caused by tumors, abscesses and/or hydrocephalus. Causes such as diabetic ketoacidosis, stroke and malignant hypertension may require aggressive medical management. Sometimes medication may be used in treatment of interstitial cerebral edema in order to reduce cerebrospinal fluid production in chronically increased intracranial pressure.
However a single non-conservative mutation (Arg345Trp) in the gene EFEMP1 (for EGF-containing fibrillin-like extracellular matrix protein 1) was found to be responsible for ML.4 However, the diagnosis of ML is clinical. On fundus examination, the most prominent feature of ML is the development of small and large drusen which can develop as early as adolescence. Initially, small drusen, located in the macular area and on the nasal edge of the optic disc, show a radial distribution to the peripheral retina and, in the later stage of the disease, they progressively increase and confluent in honeycomb appearance.5 Patients with ML may occasionally present with choroidal neovascularization (CNV).6 We report the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) features of ML compared with our observations on fundus examination, autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) in XX eyes. METHODS Ten eyes of five consecutive patients affected with ML (xx females, xx male) were prospectively included. They presented to Ophthalmology Department of Intercity Hospital, Creteil, France, between Mars 2016 to May 2016 with complaints of metamorphopsia or loss of vision.
the presence of a presacral mass. At birth, a history of excess oral secretions and central cyanosis implies the potential presence of VACTERL (Vertebral, Anorectal, Cardiac, Tracheoesophageal, Renal and Limbs particularly radial) anomalies. So full examination of the spine, the pelvis, the esophagus, and the cardiovascular system to ensure a life-threatening abnormality has not been overlooked because of an absent rectum. Check for the normal position and size of the anus: In a girl the size should be 1/3 of the distance from the coccyx to the fourchette. In case the anus is present and in the correct position then the passage of a soft catheter greater than 2 cm into the rectum and the presence of meconium passage rules out atresia.
Liver – the human liver has four lobes: right, left, caudate and quadrate. The fetal pig liver has five lobes: right lateral, right central, left central, left lateral, and caudate. Intestines – there is a significant difference in the structure of the fetal pig colon compared to the human colon. The pig colon is spiral. (See p. 45 of the FPDG.)
The primary dentition are commonly known as the “baby teeth” and are fugacious. The deciduous set of teeth are formed around six months and begin to fall out around age six. After these teeth fall out, the secondary dentition begin to show. This set is commonly known as “permanent” teeth. The human adult has thirty-two teeth which are divided up into four (five for including wisdom teeth) types of teeth.
The cerebellum is situated in the posterior cranial fossa (Fig 1), between the tentorium cerebelli which separates it from the occipital lobe superiorly and foramen magnum. It lies dorsal to the pons and medulla, and is separated from them by the fourth ventricle at its median region. The first accurate description of human cerebellum was given by Ziehen in 1934(25), prior to that most of the descriptions of cerebellum were based on dissection of animal cerebellums(26). The cerebellum is somewhat ovoid in shape with constriction at its median part. The shape of the human cerebellum differs from most other mammals, most obvious features being its overall size, medial to lateral width, depth of transverse fissures and the parallel orientation
When it comes to working in the medical field it is important to understand all the terminology that comes to the procedures and tests. Some of them are easy to remember with simple abbreviations, then there are others that require that the full name be used do describe what has taken place. When it comes to the musculoskeletal, eyes, ears, skin, lymphatic, and endocrine systems they all have very unique names and abbreviations so that the chart tells a story of what has happened to the patient. As we read further I will explain different things that can take place while each of the systems listed so that we can better understand some of the procedures and test that take place. The musculoskeletal system includes the bones, muscles,
Ultrasound is particularly advantageous in this case because blood flow to the tumor can be assessed in the same exam using Doppler settings. Pathologies wherein tendons pull a portion of Cortical bone away from the bone surface, such as Osgood-Schlatter disease and avulsion fractures, are often well depicted with ultrasound. Stress fractures too small to be seen on radiographs can often be directly seen with ultrasound. Ultrasound is also a valuable tool for diagnosing and monitoring rheumatic diseases. The orthopedic pathologies which can be diagnosed with ultrasound are numerous.
Name: Horner 's syndrome Overview: The syndrome of Horner is a neuro-ophthalmological that develops after an interruption of nerve fibers nice ranging from the hypothalamus to eye. Possible damage to the central level that causes this syndrome is the lesion, compression or ischemia of the brain stem. Other conditions that determine the Horner syndrome is syringomyelia and some cancers marrow or brain (eg. neuroblastoma). Interruptions devices, however, can result from head and neck trauma, cervical lymphadenopathy, lung tumors Pancoast, aortic dissection or carotid artery and thoracic aortic aneurysm.
Combined with knowledge in human anatomy, surgical procedures, and the implementation of tools and technologies, they assessed progression of the surgical operation, anticipating every need to facilitate a surgeon’s performance of invasive therapeutic and diagnostic procedure while keeping a vigilant count of surgical instruments and sponges which is pivotal in preventing adverse event
