Pelvic floor dysfunction is defined as abnormal function of the pelvic floor and includes conditions that can have significant adverse impacts on a woman's quality of life, including urinary incontinence (stress, urge, and mixed), fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction, diastasis recti abdominis, pelvic girdle pain, and chronic pain syndromes. Women's health care providers can screen for, identify, and treat pelvic floor dysfunction. This article examines the case of a woman with multiple pelvic-floor-related problems and presents the evidence for the use of pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) for pregnancy-related pelvic floor dysfunction. PFPT is an evidence-based, low-risk, and minimally invasive intervention, and women's health care providers can counsel women about the role that PFPT may play in the prevention, treatment, and/or management of pelvic floor dysfunction.

Moebius syndrome is a rare cause of congenital facial and abducens palsy. It is sometimes associated with musculoskeletal abnormalities and other cranial nerve palsies. Genetics and ischemic insults to the fetus are considered to be the cause of this syndrome. We report here a 12-year-old female patient who was presented to us with poor cosmesis of her face, with associated decreased vision and lagophthalmos in her left eye. She didn't have any signs of exposure keratopathy in the affected eye. Her best-corrected vision was 20/20 and 20/60 in right and left eyes respectively. The cause of decreased vision in her left eye was found to be anisometropic amblyopia, due to asymmetric hyperopic astigmatism in her eyes. She did not report diplopia in any gaze position. Examination of her cranial nerve revealed left facial, abducens, and hypoglossal nerve palsy, leading us to the diagnosis of Moebius syndrome. Apart from that, she had syndactyly in one of her hands, and brachydactyly in both. Since the eyes were straight in their primary position, no surgical intervention was carried out for her lagophthalmos, which was measured to be only 2 mm. This was to prevent any post-operative iatrogenic ptosis. The condition requires a multidisciplinary approach involving the opinions of a neuro-ophthalmologist, strabismologist, and oculoplastics for the management of the complications associated with the disease.

Pelvic organ prolapse is a prevalent disorder with a high lifetime incidence of surgical repair. Pelvic organ prolapse surgery has greatly evolved over the past years, and pelvic floor reconstructive surgeons are faced with a vast array of treatment options for their patients. Our review article illustrates the current trends and future perspectives for the surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.

A 33 year old male patient has found in the oral cavity tumor with nausea and vomiting after 20 days ago. The patients feel pharyngeal foreign body sensation, occasional sense of suffocation, the oropharyngeal tumor disappeared and foreign body sensation disappeared after swallowing. The patients without angina, no hemoptysis, no hoarseness, no acid reflux symptoms and weight loss phenomenon. The gastroscope showed giant tumor, esophagus smooth surface, visible local gray blue blood vessels, from the entrance of esophagus has been extended to the esophagus from the upper incisors 25 cm. The huge polypoid matters originate from the entrance of esophagus, esophageal mucosa prolapse entrance left wall like folds, about 13 cm long. Inspecting the electronic laryngoscope: esophageal entrance polypoid tissue after vomiting, spit to form red giant oropharyngeal neoplasm. After the tumor swallowing into the esophagus, checking the laryngeal vestibule, bilateral aryepiglottic fold and pyriform sinus are normal. The pathological sections were diagnosed as fibrous hemangioma by HE staining.

This review discusses the management of ventricular septal defects (VSDs) and atrioventricular septal defects (AVSDs). There are several types of VSDs: perimembranous, supracristal, atrioventricular septal, and muscular. The indications for closure are moderate to large VSDs with enlarged left atrium and left ventricle or elevated pulmonary artery pressure (or both) and a pulmonary-to-systemic flow ratio greater than 2:1. Surgical closure is recommended for large perimembranous VSDs, supracristal VSDs, and VSDs with aortic valve prolapse. Large muscular VSDs may be closed by percutaneous techniques. A large number of devices have been used in the past for VSD occlusion, but currently Amplatzer Muscular VSD Occluder is the only device approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for clinical use. A hybrid approach may be used for large muscular VSDs in small babies. Timely intervention to prevent pulmonary vascular obstructive disease (PVOD) is germane in the management of these babies. There are several types of AVSDs: partial, transitional, intermediate, and complete. Complete AVSDs are also classified as balanced and unbalanced. All intermediate and complete balanced AVSDs require surgical correction, and early repair is needed to prevent the onset of PVOD. Surgical correction with closure of atrial septal defect and VSD, along with repair and reconstruction of atrioventricular valves, is recommended. Palliative pulmonary artery banding may be considered in babies weighing less than 5 kg and those with significant co-morbidities. The management of unbalanced AVSDs is more complex, and staged single-ventricle palliation is the common management strategy. However, recent data suggest that achieving two-ventricle repair may be a better option in patients with suitable anatomy, particularly in patients in whom outcomes of single-ventricle palliation are less than optimal. The majority of treatment modes in the management of VSDs and AVSDs are safe and effective and prevent the development of PVOD and cardiac dysfunction.
