Most people have never heard the words “spina bifida” in their life, but after today you will know what it is. Spina bifida is a neurological birth defect, where the backbone and the membranes around the spinal cord do not completely close, and even protrude out. This disorder can have no effect on a person or it can alter an individual’s life forever. I will begin by giving you some background information on the disorder and then I will tell about my sibling, who has this disorder. Spina bifida in Latin is translated as ‘split spine’.
There are several procedures available for people who are disabled by frequent vertigo attacks despite drug treatment. The procedures aim to either reduce fluid pressure in the inner ear or destroy inner ear balance function. The least destructive of these procedures is called endolymphatic sac decompression. Essentially, the bone overlaying the endolymphatic sac is exposed and a thin sheet of flexible plastic material is placed over the ear. People who have severe, frequent episodes despite these treatments may need a surgical procedure.
The second type of spina bifida is called Closed neural tube defects.this type has a varietal group of defects that affect the spineal cord. This type of spina bifida is shown by the malformation of fat, bone, or meninges. Usually, there aren’t any symptoms. Meningocele is the third type of spina bifida. This third type can result in complete paralysis, along with bowel or bladder dysfunction.
Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is one of the rarest and most disabling disease known to mankind. The disease progression is caused when connective tissue such as; muscle, tendons, or ligaments are slowly replaced by bone. Eventually, the additional bone formation outside the skeleton will constrict movement and imprison the body. The literature on fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is sparse, which could account for the extremely high rate of misdiagnoses of the disorder. An important implication of diagnosing the disorder are understanding the key characteristics at birth as well as recognizing the body swellings are not classified as tumors.
DISCUSSION The exact incidence of nasal septal perforation is unknown as most of the patients are asymptomatic and others may not seek medical attention2. Iatrogenic cause still continues to be a main reason for nasal septal perforation. Excessive nasal packing, post-operative septal haematomas and infections may result in septal perforations following surgery2. However, with refinements in rhinologic surgeries, the incidence of nasal septal perforation secondary to septal surgery has declined to 1% 2,3. Other causes include trauma, digital manipulation, drugs and neoplasms 2,3.
Ventriculoperitoneal shunts, which reroute CSF to the abdomen and endoscopic third ventriculostomy, which places a fenestration on the floor of the third ventricle and allows for CSF to directly flow into the subarachnoid space, are both viable choices for management of hydroencephalus. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy has the additional advantage of obtaining a biopsy during the same procedure, allowing for staging of the tumor and consequently, better-informed decisions on treatment. If tumor progression or high-grade gliomas are identified after the initial intervention, patients can elect to undergo a mixed combination of more aggressive treatments, such as surgical resection of the tumor, radiotherapy, and
Reason why, some babies get a feeding tube inserted through their nose. If the child has had an ostomy they have a pouch connected to them, this won’t prevent the child from living a normal and healthy life. Before or after the surgery babies or children can suffer from an infection in the intestines, name enterocolities.
