Failed Tracheal Intubation in a Child with Unrecognized Hunter's Syndrome Having Emergency Surgery

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.059

The Editor,

Sir,

We report a child with unanticipated Hunter's syndrome who, while under general anesthesia for an emergency surgery, suffered from an emergency difficult airway. As the child showed limited cooperation, general anesthesia was chosen.

Radiographic Anatomy and Calcaneal Width Measurements on Tangential View

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.357
Pages: 
197–201
Synopsis: 
Tangential calcaneal X-rays were performed on 30 patients with fractured calcaneus and 57 control individuals with normal calcaneus. Results demonstrated that tangential X-ray view of the calcaneus can be used to evaluate its radiographic anatomy and to measure its width.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To investigate the radiographic anatomical characters of the bones in the fractured calcaneus by using tangential X-rays.

Survival of Cochlear Spiral Ganglion Neurons Improved in vitro by Anti-miR204 via TMPRSS3

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.393
Pages: 
379-82
Synopsis: 
The survival of cochlear spiral ganglion neurons was increased in mice with kanamycin ototoxicity whose cochlea were micro-injected with AAV1-anti-miR204, which suggested that anti-miR204 could be a potential therapeutic strategy in sensorineural hearing loss.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is caused by damage to hair cells followed by degeneration of the spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) and cochlear implanting is an effective treatment. Unfortunately, the progressive hearing loss is still found due to ongoing degeneration of cochlear SGNs. The aim of this study was to investigate the neuroprotective effect of antimiR204 on SGNs in vivo.

Clinical Evaluation with Self-sequential Longitudinal Reference Intervals: Pregnancy Outcome and Neonatal Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Level Associated with Maternal Thyroid Diseases

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.143
Pages: 
28–34
Synopsis: 
The thyroid function of 1744 pregnant women was clinically evaluated with a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established. Thyroid disorders were common in pregnant women and the disorders were associated with pregnancy and fetal outcome. Routine maternal thyroid function screening is important and should be recommended.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We attempted to evaluate maternal thyroid function in a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established recently. By this method, we analysed the correlation between pregnancy outcome, neonatal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level and maternal thyroid diseases.
