Relationship between Blood Ammonia and Plasma free Amino Acids Concentration in Adult-Onset Citrullinemia Type 2: A Case Report

1. Abstract 1.1. Aim: Elevated plasma citrulline (Cit) concentration is a characteristic finding in adult-onset type II citrullinemia (CTLN2). However, the plasma free amino acids (PFAA) profile associated with ammonia detoxification has not been fully analyzed. 1.2. Methods: We evaluated the relationship between blood ammonia (B-NH3) and the PFAA concentrations through a 50-year-old man with …

Medial Compartment Osteoarthritis with a Large Subchondral Geode of Medial Femoral Condyle Treated with Unicondylar Knee Arthroplasty: A Case Report

1. Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) with a large subchondral geode of medial femoral condylar is not common. The treatment options of this lesion vary according to the location of the cyst and the severity of osteoarthritis, with less invasive procedures such as calcium phosphate cement injection to a joint arthroplasty. In the past decade, unicondylar knee …

Walking Rehabilitation Using Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) and Computer-Controlled Long-Leg Orthosis (C-Brace) for an Individual with Chronic Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury: A Case Report

1. Abstract Many individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) hope to restore walking function irrespective of their impairment. We present a case with chronic incomplete cervical SCI who could regain community ambulation by gait training with hybrid assistive limb (HAL), followed by fitting and training of microprocessor-controlled knee ankle foot orthosis (C-Brace). The walking and …

Successful Management of a Broken Stylet Retained in Tracheobronchial Tree: A Case Report

1. Abstract In Covid-19 pandemic, the use of video laryngoscope for tracheal intubation is highly recommended due to the increasing distance between patient’s airway and operator. An endotracheal tube with an intubating stylet has been proposed to facilitate tracheal tube insertion, especially when video laryngoscope was used. Thus in routine anesthesia practice intubating stylet is …

Early Detection of Interstitial Lung Disease in Asymptomatic Patients with 2-[18F]FDG PET/CT

1. Abstract Pulmonary involvement is a common manifestation of Dermatomyositis (DM), the most frequent histologic pattern being Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) which is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality in these patients. Therefore, this disease should be investigated and it is essential to perform pulmonary function tests (PFTs) and High-Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) early …

Diagnosis of Cavernous Sinus Hemangioma by [99mtc]Tc- RBC Scintigraphy

1. Abstract Preoperative diagnosis of cavernous hemangiomas (HC) is generally difficult because they are rare lesions that are misdiagnosed as meningiomas on Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), being essential their differential diagnosis prior to biopsy or surgery, because extracerebral cavernous sinus HC is often complicated by incomplete excision and/or hemorrhage with a …

Rare Thrombophilic Variants in two Patients with Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis after COVID-19 Vaccine Administration

1. Abstract Vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 play a central role in reducing the circulation of the virus and effectively preventing the onset of severe COVID-19 disease and deaths. Rare side effects after COVID-19 immunization have been reported such as unusual thrombotic events in combination with thrombocytopenia (VITT), or Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST). We performed Whole …
