  • Identification of a Novel Arginine Vasopressin Receptor 2 Mutation
           (p.V183M) in a Chinese Family with Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus
    • Abstract: Loss of function of arginine vasopressin receptor 2 (AVPR2) may affect the recognition and binding of arginine vasopressin (AVP) which, in turn, may prevent the activation of Gs/adenylate cyclase and reduce the reabsorption of water by renal tubules and combined tubes. Finally, the organism may suffer from nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI), a kind of kidney disorder featured by polyuria and polydipsia, due to a break of water homeostasis. In this study, we enrolled a Chinese family with polyuria and polydipsia. The proband presented abnormal fluid intake and excessive urine output. A water deprivation and AVP stimulation test further indicated that this patient had NDI. By sequencing known causative genes for diabetes insipidus, we identified a novel mutation in AVPR2 (c.547G>A; p.V183M) in the family. This mutation, located in a conserved site of AVPR2 and predicted to be disease-causing by informatics programs, was absent in our 200 controls and other public databases. Our study not only further confirms the clinical diagnosis, but also expands the spectrum of AVPR2 mutations and contributes to genetic diagnosis and counseling of patients with NDI.

  • Revision of a Complex Periprosthetic Humerus Fracture with Two-Thirds of
           Humerus Bone Loss with an Allograft-Prosthetic Composite Reverse Shoulder
    • Abstract: Shoulder arthroplasty is becoming an increasingly standard procedure in the United States. In conjunction with an aging population and increased prevalence of osteoporosis, proper management of periprosthetic humerus fractures is of great interest to orthopedic surgeons. Several periprosthetic humeral fracture classification systems take into consideration the fracture location and implant stability, but they do not address the type of bone defects or amount of bone available for revision surgery. The lack of description and guidance in the different varieties of humerus bone defects limits current classification system utility in cases with severe bone loss. There are previous case reports of revisions of periprosthetic humerus fractures with an allograft-prosthetic composite reverse total shoulder replacement. Different from previously reported cases, the case described in this article presented the treatment of a complex humerus fracture with loss of more than two-thirds of the patient’s native humerus. Due to the extensive humerus bone loss, we modified the surgical techniques previously published to allow for a successful surgery.

  • Skin and Mucous Membrane Eruptions Associated with Chlamydophila
           Pneumoniae Respiratory Infections: Literature Review
    • Abstract: Background: Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia is sometimes associated with skin or mucous membrane eruptions. Available reviews do not address the association of Chlamydophila pneumoniae pneumonia with skin eruptions. We therefore conducted a systematic review of the literature addressing this issue. The National Library of Medicine, Excerpta Medica, and Web of Science databases were employed. Summary: In two reports, skin lesions and especially urticaria were more common (p #x3c; 0.05) in atypical pneumonia caused by C. pneumoniae as compared with M. pneumoniae. We found 47 patients (#x3c;18 years, n = 16; ≥18 years, n = 31) affected by a C. pneumoniae atypical pneumonia, which was associated with erythema nodosum, erythema multiforme minus, erythema multiforme majus, isolated mucositis, or cutaneous vasculitis. We also found the case of a boy with C. pneumoniae pneumonia and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. We did not find any case of C. pneumoniae respiratory infection associated with either Gianotti-Crosti syndrome, pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta Mucha-Habermann, or varicella-like skin eruptions.

  • Facial Pain: A Comprehensive Review and Proposal for a Pragmatic
           Diagnostic Approach
    • Abstract: Background: Facial pain, alone or combined with other symptoms, is a frequent complaint. Moreover, it is a symptom situated at, more than any other pain condition, a crosspoint where several disciplines meet, for example, dentists; manual therapists; ophthalmologists; psychologists; and ear-nose-throat, pain, and internal medicine physicians besides neurologists and neurosurgeons. Recently, a new version of the most widely used classification system among neurologists for headache and facial pain, the International Classification of Headache Disorders, has been published. Objective: The aims of this study were to provide an overview of the most prevalent etiologies of facial pain and to provide a generic framework for the neurologist on how to manage patients presenting with facial pain. Methods: An overview of the different etiologies of facial pain is provided from the viewpoint of the respective clinical specialties that are confronted with facial pain. Key message: Caregivers should “think outside their own box” and refer to other disciplines when indicated. If not, a correct diagnosis can be delayed and unnecessary treatments might be given. The presented framework is aimed at excluding life- or organ-threatening diseases, providing several clinical clues and indications for technical investigations, and ultimately leading to the correct diagnosis and/or referral to other disciplines.

  • Cytology Reporting System for Lung Cancer from the Japan Lung Cancer
           Society and Japanese Society of Clinical Cytology: An Interobserver
           Reproducibility Study and Risk of Malignancy Evaluation on Cytology
    • Abstract: Introduction: The classification of lung carcinoma is based on small biopsies and/or cytology in 80% of patients with non-small cell carcinoma. However, there is no widely accepted classification system for respiratory cytology. The Japan Lung Cancer Society (JLCS) and Japanese Society of Clinical Cytology (JSCC) have proposed a new four-tiered cytology reporting system for lung carcinoma with the following categories: (1) “negative for malignancy,” (2) “atypical cells,” (3) “suspicious for malignancy,” and (4) “malignancy.” Objective: The aim of this work was to perform an interobserver reproducibility study to confirm the utility of the four-tiered reporting system on respiratory cytological samples. Methods: We analyzed 90 cytological samples obtained with bronchoscopy. Seven observers classified these cases into each category by reviewing one Papanicolaou-stained slide per case according to the three-, four-, and five-tiered reporting systems. Results: The interobserver agreement was fair in the three- (κ = 0.50), four- (κ = 0.45), and five-tiered (κ = 0.45) reporting systems. However, the four-tiered reporting system provided more precise information than the three-tiered reporting system in patient management. The risk of malignancy in the four-tiered reporting system was also stratified well: 19.3% for “negative for malignancy,” 45.6% for “atypical cells,” 74.7% for “suspicious for malignancy,” and 88.1% for “malignancy.” Conclusions: The reporting system proposed by the JLCS and JSCC was designed to enhance the communication between clinicians and pathologists and among different institutions. It is simple and applicable to cytological diagnosis of any respiratory diseases. We propose establishing an international classification for respiratory cytology, harmonizing the reporting systems proposed by different countries.

  • The Origin of the Idea That Herpes Labialis Is of Prognostic Importance in
           Bacterial Meningitis
    • Abstract: Objective:The aim of the work was to study the origin of the idea that herpes labialis (HL) in patients with pneumonia and meningitis was believed to be of prognostic importance. Background:HL is caused by a primary infection or reactivation of herpes simplex type I. In the past, it has been related to pneumonia and meningitis; moreover, HL was believed to be of prognostic importance. Methods:A selection of 19th- and 20th-century textbooks and referred articles was consulted. The relation between meningitis and herpes, type of meningitis, and attributed diagnostic and prognostic importance were studied. In addition, the HL-pneumonia association was studied. Results:The Strasbourg physician Charles-Polydore Forget was the first to describe the HL-meningitis association in 1843. Tourdes (1843), Drasche (1859), and Salomon (1864) attributed a favorable prognostic importance to the HL-meningitis relation. In a comprehensive monograph (1866), August Hirsch, although confirming the association, denied the prognostic importance through critical analysis of the data. Few authors attributed a diagnostic importance to the occurrence of HL, suggesting meningococcal meningitis. Conclusions:The HL-meningitis relation, but not the prognostic importance, has been mentioned in most neurological textbooks since then. In contrast to meningitis, in which a prognostic attribution of HL was only a short-lived 19th-century idea, the favorable prognostic importance of HL in pneumonia continued to be described until the 1950s. A possible protective effect of herpesviruses has been found in recent years. One could speculate that the disappearance of the prognostic HL-pneumonia relation could be related to the introduction of antibiotics in the late 1940s.

  • Prepregnancy Overweight and Obesity Are Associated with an Increased Risk
           of Preterm Birth in Chinese Women
    • Abstract: Introduction: The association between obesity before pregnancy and preterm birth varies with age and ethnicity. Objective: To study the association between early body mass index (BMI) and risk of preterm birth in Chinese women. Methods: This was a hospital-based retrospective cohort study including 36,596 Chinese women who gave birth to a live singleton infant from 2015 to 2018. Women were classified as underweight (BMI #x3c;18.5), normal weight (BMI 18.5 to #x3c;23), overweight (BMI 23 to #x3c;27.5), or obese (BMI ≥27.5) according to the most recent criteria for Asian women. Multivariate log-binomial regression models were used to estimate the relative risks (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) for preterm birth among different groups. Results: Compared to women with normal weight, women with overweight or obesity before pregnancy had an increased risk of preterm birth; the RRs and 95% CIs were 1.22 (95% CI: 1.08–1.37) and 1.30 (95% CI: 1.01–1.69), respectively. The greatest risk of extremely preterm birth was observed in obese women. The estimators were robust when considering the maternal age and rate of gestational weight gain (GWG) during pregnancy. Conclusions: Women with overweight and obesity had an increased risk of preterm birth regardless of GWG in early pregnancy. Our study suggests that it is beneficial to lose weight before conception for both overweight and obese women who plan to become pregnant.

  • Preoperative Use of Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump Support Reduced 30-Day
           Mortality in a Population with LVEF >35% and High Surgical Risk after
           Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery
    • Abstract: Introduction: The intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is used to prevent complications after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery, although some results are controversial and basal ventricular function may play a role. This study assessed the benefit of preoperative use of IABP, as stratified by the ventricular function, in a population submitted to high-surgical-risk CABG. Methods: Patients #x3e;18 years old, with multiple coronary artery disease and thus candidates for CABG, were included. Cardiogenic shock, acute myocardial infarction (AMI), acute ventricle mechanical dysfunction, severe aortic regurgitation, tachyarrhythmia, massive pulmonary embolism, coagulopathy, or low life expectancy were exclusion criteria. Results: One hundred and twenty-nine patients aged 65 years old with hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and mean left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 46% constituted the study population. No difference was observed at 30-day mortality endpoint (IABP vs. no IABP, 17 vs. 24%, OR 0.63, p = 0.20; AMI 25 vs. 31%, OR 0.75, p = 0.29). After LVEF stratification, the subgroup of 48 (75%) patients under IABP support and LVEF #x3e;35% had a reduced 30-day mortality risk (LVEF ≤35% vs. LVEF #x3e;35%, 37.5 vs. 10.4%, OR 0.3, p = 0.03), independently from potential confounders and showing an interaction with European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation-II (EuroSCORE-II). At secondary endpoints, IABP use was associated with a lower prevalence of acute renal failure and renal replacement therapy, but with a longer stay in the intensive care unit and longer hospitalization time. Conclusion: The preoperative use of IABP was associated with an independent reduction of 30-day mortality risk in cases with LVEF #x3e;35% in a population submitted to high-surgical-risk CABG. Likewise, the use of IABP was associated with a lower risk of postoperative renal complications.

  • Does Offline Beat Inline Treatment: Investigation into Extracorporeal
    • Abstract: Background: Extracorporeal photopheresis is a therapy based on the induction of apoptosis to cells harvested from peripheral blood, followed by direct retransfusion. Currently, there are two approaches: inline procedures, where cell harvesting, 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) incubation, and UV irradiation is performed with a single device, and offline procedures, with collection in one device, followed by 8-MOP incubation/UV irradiation using a second device. Study Design and Methods: In a prospective crossover study, we compared an inline (Cellex, Therakos) with an established offline procedure (Optia, Terumo, and MacoGenic G2, Macopharma) in 6 patients, focusing on cell composition and apoptosis induction after 24 h. In total, 32 photopheresis treatments per device were performed. Results: We observed an overall 2-fold higher number of apoptotic “target” cells for each patient with offline treatment. All yields were stratified per patient. Yields were compared as ratio offline/inline for CD3+ (2.5-fold), CD4+ (2-fold), CD8+ (2.8-fold), CD56+ (2.8-fold), CD19+ (1.8-fold), CD15+ (0.5-fold), and CD14+ (2.2-fold) cells. Apoptosis induction was measured after 24 h with Annexin V/7-AAD for early and late apoptosis rates of CD3+ (CD4+, CD8+) and CD56+ cells. CD3+ cells of the inline treatment had an average of 88% (26% early, 62% late) of apoptotic cells compared to 75% (34% early, 41% late) in the offline treatment. Procedure duration ranged from 80 to 100 min inline, with a maximum of 1,500 mL processed blood, and 125–140 min offline, with at least 3,000 mL processed blood, depending on blood flow. Average hematocrit levels of the products were 2.7% inline versus 1.7% offline. Conclusions: The offline procedure, as established in our department, provides more apoptotic cells for treatment. The increased number of mononuclear cells collected outweighs a slightly reduced apoptosis rate after 24 h in comparison to the inline procedure. Besides this, the final decision for one or the other procedure has to take into account additional aspects, such as peripheral white blood cell count, hematocrit, and weight of the patient, required before apheresis, extracorporeal volume, and, last but not least, overall costs. The final criterion, however, has to be the reported clinical efficacy of the system applied.

  • Mnemoscape: Supporting Older Adults’ Event Memory Using Wearable Camera
           Photographs on an Immersive Interface
    • Abstract: Background: Wearable camera photographs have been shown to be an effective memory aid in people with and without memory impairment. Most studies using wearable cameras as a memory aid have presented photographs on a computer monitor and used a written diary or no review as a comparison. In this pioneering study, we took a new and innovative approach to wearable camera photograph review that embeds the photographs within a virtual landscape. This approach may enhance these benefits by reinstating the original environmental context to increase participants’ sense of re-experiencing the event. Objective: We compare the traditional computer monitor presentation of wearable camera photographs and actively taken digital photographs with the presentation of wearable camera photographs in a new immersive interface that reinstates the spatiotemporal context. Methods: Healthy older adults wore wearable or took digital photographs during a staged event. The next day and 2 weeks later, they viewed wearable camera photographs on a computer monitor or in context on an immersive interface, or digital photographs. Results: Participants who viewed wearable camera photographs in either format recalled more details during photo viewing and subsequent free recall than participants who viewed digital photographs they had taken themselves. Conclusion: Wearable camera photographs are an effective support for event memory, regardless of whether they are presented in context in an experience-near format.
