Yellow Nail Syndrome: An Unusual Cause of Pleural Effusion

Yellow Nail Syndrome is a rare medical disorder characterized by the classic triad of thickened and dystrophic yellow nails, pleural effusion, and primary lymphoedema. This was a case report of a 21-year-old male who complained of dyspnoea on exertion, dry cough, and abdominal distension for the past 15 days, and bilateral lower limb swelling for the past two years. Low Lactate Dehydrogenase and Adenosine Deaminase levels were revealed in a tumescent and exudative picture with low Lactate Dehydrogenase and Adenosine Deaminase levels in the Pleural fluid analysis, which was negative for malignancy. Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia constituted Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia, according to a second part biopsy of Duodenum Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia.

Uveitis and nail psoriasis in a patient without articular involvement: a case report

Abstract Background This study was designed to document a case of bilateral anterior non-granulomatous persistent non-infectious uveitis associated with isolated nail psoriasis without articular involvement. Case study A 55-year-old man with a history of open-angle glaucoma was referred to our uveitis and ocular immunology center with intraocular inflammation conjunctive bilateral non-granulomatous uveitis (no-granulomatous uveitis inflammatory disease center with intraocular inflammation conjunction bruce. The psoriasis was later confirmed by nail ultrasonography performed by a radiologist who specialized in psoriasis. Phenoscope and conclusion This is the first study of non-infectious uveitis associated with nail compromise in a patient without other signs of psoriasis. Despite reports comparing the relationship between psoriatic disease and uveitis, there are a lack of study on vascular phenotypes associated with uveitis that may lead to further diagnosis and treatment of related intraocular inflammation. Clinicians should be aware of all subtypes of psoriasis that could lead to uveitis in these patients.

Effect of Nail Grips on Weight Bearing and Limb Function in 30 Dogs 2 Weeks Post Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy

In the first two weeks after tibial plateau leveling osteotomy, the aim of this review was to determine the clinical effects of dogs wearing nail grips. On day 14 or at any time point, there were no differences in the treatment and sham groups in terms of VLS and TPI. After orthopedic surgery, Nail grips were well tolerated in dogs. This research did not show a benefit for dogs wearing nail grips during the first two weeks after TPLO's first two weeks; however, further research is warranted.

Hindfoot arthrodesis with a trabecular metal ankle fusion spacer and retrograde nail in charcot arthropathy of the ankle: A case report

We report the use of trabecular metal ankle fusion spacers to treat diabetic Charcot ankle pain. At a local clinic with left ankle swelling and warmth, a 61-year-old man with type 2 diabetes presented with left ankle swelling and warmth. Diabetic Charcot neuroarthropathy was identified, and surgery was performed 1 month later. Instead, a large bone hole in the talar body caused talocrural arthrodesis, which was unfeasible; tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis was used instead, using a retrograde intramedullary nail and trabecular metal ankle spacers; We performed ankle joint fusion with trabecular metal ankle fusion spacers, which are available in several shapes and can be positioned to fill the bone defect's space. We chose a sturdy trabecular metal ankle spacer that could also accommodate an intramedullary nail in this situation. Hence, a retrograde intramedullary nail and tbecular metal ankle fusion spacers was stable, resulting in stable tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis.

Nail changes in pemphigus and bullous pemphigoid: A single-center study in China

Nail changes in patients with pemphias or BP are not reported in studies. In the present review, we gathered the clinical data of 191 patients with AIBDs and 200 control subjects. The most common nail involvement, however, was found in 22. 5% and 22. 9% of patients with AIBDs, 19. 3% and 19. 1% of patients with pemphia, respectively. Patients with pemphias or BP with nail changes had a different baseline, and the onset of patients with pemphion or BP with nail changes were different. The ABSIS was linked to nail involvement in patients with BP and was less correlated with nail involvement in patients with AIBDs, pemphius, and pemphi vulgaris. No association was found between nail involvement and disease antibody titers.

Urinary 8-OHdG level is not affected by geography and trace elements in nail of residents of Addis Ababa: It is shaped by interactions between different social factors

In comparison to the upstream area, the aim of this research was to establish a correlation between heavy metal exposure and oxidative DNA damage among residents of Addis Ababa's potentially polluted downstream community. In Akaki-Kality and 17. 30 u00b1 5. 83 ng/mg Creatinine in Gullele, the urinary 8-OHdG concentration was not significantly different between the two Sub-Cities, with a mean of 18. 50 ng/mg Creatinine in Akaki-Kality and 17. 30 u00b1 5. 83 ng/mg Creatinine in Gullele. However, the effects of sex with age, sex with alcohol intake, and alcohol intake with education were found to influence the urinary 8-OHdG levels of residents of the two Sub-Cities. The measured concentrations of heavy metals in nails were not significantly different from those with 8-OHdG's corresponding urinary levels.

Intramedullary Nail Fixation by Suprapatellar and Infrapatellar Approaches for Treatment of Distal Tibial Fractures

Methods The method used in this retrospective review was a retrospective review of 132 patients with distal tibial fractures ranging from 20 to 66 years were treated with intramedullary nails using the suprapatellar or infrapatellar technique. According to U00b0, the fracture in the suprapatellar and infrapatellar approach groups was 3. 20° and 5. 31 %, respectively. Poor fracture reduction was observed among three patients in the suprapatellar approach group and 15 patients in the infrapatellar approach group. In the infrapatellar approach group, the mean hind foot functional score and ankle pain score were 95. 91 and 35. 70 points, respectively, with 85. 61 and 35. 70 points. The odds ratio in the suprapatellar approach group was about 7 times higher than in the infrapatellar approach group, according to the multivariate logistic regression results.

Predictive Indicators for Complications of Proximal Humerus Fractures Treated with Locking Plate or Intramedullary Nail Fixation

Objectivity This study was designed to determine the appropriate placement of calcar screws in proximal humerus fracture surgeries. Methods This retrospective cohort review included the medical and radiographic results of 98 patients treated with proximal humerus fracture surgeries between January 2017 and June 2020. Patients were divided into two groups: the locking plate group and the intracortlary nail group. To determine the placement of calcar screws in these two groups, we developed new predictive metrics, including horizontal ratio and vertical ratio. Both in the locking plate group and the intra-murlary nail group showed significant differences between medial support and postoperative pain. Conclusion In locking plate fixation, the risk of postoperative complications soared sharply when the VR of calcar screws increased to greater than 0. 1713, which was helpful to surgeons to place calcar screws.
