  • Thoracic Endometriosis Syndrome: A Review of Diagnosis and Management. [Review]
    JSLS 2019 Jul-Sep; 23(3)Nezhat C, Lindheim SR, … Nezhat C
  • CONCLUSIONS: TES can produce incapacitating symptoms for some patients. Symptoms of TES are nonspecific, so a high degree of clinical suspicion is warranted. Medical management represents the first-line treatment approach. When this fails or is contraindicated, definitive surgical treatment for cases of suspected TES uses a combined video laparoscopy performed by a gynecologic surgeon and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery performed by a thoracic surgeon. Postoperative hormonal suppression may further reduce disease recurrence.
  • Bilateral catamenial hemopneumothorax: Diagnostic & management challenges. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 61:271-274AlAqeel S, AlJehani Y, AlMuhaish M
  • CONCLUSIONS: The radiological diagnosis was pneumothorax with further history, it was apparent that is was a case of primary infertility secondary to possible pelvic endometriosis. She was treated as a case of bilateral catamenial hemopneumothorax after confirming the diagnosis through surgical exploration & repair of right hemidiaphragm.This case demonstrate the extensive bilateral catamenial hemopnemothorax which is limitedly described in the literature index of suspicion & early diagnosis and management would ensure multiple admission & recurrence.
  • Outcomes of 360° Osteotomy in the Cervicothoracic Spine (C7-T1) for Congenital Cervicothoracic Kyphoscoliosis in Children. [Journal Article]
    J Bone Joint Surg Am 2019; 101(15):1357-1365Wang S, Lin G, … Zhang J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most congenital cervicothoracic deformities are fixed, and early surgical intervention may be needed. A 360° osteotomy is indicated for this type of rigid deformity and may provide satisfactory correction. However, 360° osteotomy in the cervicothoracic spine (C7-T1) is technically demanding with a higher risk of nerve root injuries, although most injuries tend to be transient. If the compensatory thoracic curve is severe and rigid, 1-stage or staged surgery in this region may be required.
  • A multi-institutional experience in vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome diagnosis. [Journal Article]
    J Vasc Surg 2019Shalhub S, Byers PH, … Woo K
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights the importance of confirming vEDS diagnosis by testing for pathogenic COL3A1 variants rather than relying on clinical diagnostic criteria alone given the high degree of overlap with other forms genetically triggered arteriopathies. Because not all COL3A1 variants are pathogenic, the interpretation of the genetic testing results by an individual trained in variant assessment is essential to confirm the diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis is critical and has serious implications for lifelong screening and treatment strategies for the affected individual and family members.
