Clinical and Evolutionary Features of SARS CoV-2 Infection (COVID-19) in Children

Clinical Paper

1. Abstract
Starting with December 2019 the medical world has faced a new challenge as a consequence of a new type of coronavirus-2019-nCoV, similar to several familiar strains that determine a comparable symptomatology (SARS- severe acute respiratory syndrome, MERS- Middle East severe acute respiratory syndrome), subsequently named SARS CoV-2, while the disease it causes- COVID-19. The virus is of animal origin and through an intermediate host (probably also a mammal) it suffered genetic changes thus acquiring human cells receptors. In consequence, SARS CoV-2 virus affects both children and even more frequently where it determines more severe clinical forms of disease. In children, COVID-19 has various clinical forms, from asymptomatic ones to severe ones, complicated by multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome – Child or PIMS – TS (Paediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome temporally associated with COVID-19) that sometimes can lead to death [5].

Combined Application of Ultrasound-Guided Percutaneous Drainage and Urokinase Lavage: An Economical and Effective Treatment for Muscle Hematomas in Hemophiliacs

Case Report

1. Abstract
1.1. Aim: An initial attempt to treat hemophiliac hematoma by ultrasound-guided intratumoral drainage combined with urokinase lavage after adequate supplementation of coagulation factors.
1.2. Methods: With sufficient supplementation of coagulation factors, drainage tube was inserted into hematomas under the guidance of ultrasound. 30,000 units of urokinase were injected into the hematomas through drainage tube, the drainage tube was clamped for 6 hours and then drained for 2 hours, this process was repeated twice a day.

Isolated Retroperitoneal Lynphangioleiomyomatosis: Robot-Assisted Surgical Treatment

Case Report

1. Abstract
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disorder and its etiology is still unknown. There is an abnormal proliferation of smooth muscle cells, it is more frequent in young women, accompanied with pulmonar impairment in most of times. Its retroperitoneal apresentation is rare and rarely mentioned in literature. In this paper, we will describe the case of a 44-year-old female patient diagnosed with isolated retroperitoneal lymphangioleiomyomatosis and treated with a robot-assisted laparoscopic approach.

An Orocutaneous Fistula in a Puckered Scar Treated with Local Flaps: A Case Report

Case Report

1. Abstract
Aesthetic facial reconstruction requires understanding regional anatomy and tissue movement and the ability to use innovatively the tissue adjacent to the defect to create a reconstruction that preserves the function of the area and the cosmetic facial units [1].
Here we present a case of right cheek post-operative puckered scar with orocutaneous fistula operated and covered with hinge flap for inner lining and limberg flap for cover. The defect is filled with tissue of the same thickness and colour, and with good vascularity [2]. Here we used local tissues for facial resurfacing to restore facial contour and closure of fistula.

Dislodgement of Left Main Stent Following Intravascular Imaging: How the Technician Disclosed Distracted Stent and Prevented Potential Serious Complications

Case Report

1. Abstract
A 54-years old patient with chronic ischemic heart disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus presented with multivessel coronary artery disease. Complex left main coronary stenosis was treated successfully with 2 stents using Culotte technique followed by stent optimization with intravascular imaging. However, one hour later Cath lab technician during copying images on CD observed that the stent contours from Cx artery were missing. The patient was brought back to Cath lab and distracted stent in the left main was successfully managed.

Therapeutic Radiosurgery Results In Late Solitary Metachronous Lung Metastases From Locally Advanced Laryngeal Carcinoma– A Case Report

Case Report

1. Abstract
The present article reports the case of 71 -year -old man with late solitary metachronous lung metastases from locally advanced squamous cell laryngeal carcinoma. A total laryngectomy with bilateral selective lymph node dissection, followed by Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in the tumor bed with the bilaterally cervical lymph nodes was completed. Year and three months after the completion of postoperative IMRT, a solitary right lung metastasis, followed after another year by a metachronic solitary left lung metastasis was reported. We are pleased to present the therapeutic result after the Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery (HFRS) and Radiosurgery (RS) with respect to the two solitary metachroneus pulmonary metastases. Thanks to the complex treatment, we have achieved a 3.5 year survival rate in a patient with a local advanced laryngeal carcinoma with subsequent late solitary metachroneus pulmonary metastases.

Persistence HFRS Infection Risk Among Migrant Outdoor Labours in Shanghai, China: A Case Report

Case Report

1. Abstract
1.1. Background
Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), a rodent-borne disease caused by hantaviruses, is clinically characterized by fever, circulatory collapse with hypotension, hemorrhage, and acute kidney injury. China has the largest number of HFRS cases worldwide, with outbreaks occurring in both eastern coastal cities and inland cities, occasionally resulting in death, it is necessary to find loopholes in prevention and control measures to reduce the occurrence of such infectious diseases.

Tail-Biting and Tail-Chewing in Weaned Holstein Heifers

Case Report

1. Abstract
The objective of this case report was to present an abnormal socio- nutri-psychological behavior or tail-biting/chewing in weaned Holstein heifers. Dairy heifers raised under commercial systems are separated from their dams and moved to individual or group housing systems which are different from their natural environment. Cross-suckling and non-nutritive behaviors are common in heifers reared artificially under intensive systems, especially those with restricted milk feeding programs. The behavior observed
herein was different from suckling behavior.
