Early insertion of trans-scrotal port during laparoscopic orchidopexy: A new concept.
Summary of "Early insertion of trans-scrotal port during laparoscopic orchidopexy: A new concept."
Laparoscopic orchidopexy has become the routine tool in managing abdominal testes. Many techniques have been used to deliver the dissected testis to the scrotal position; a trans-scrotal port is one of them. We present a technique in which the trans-scrotal port is inserted early on, and used not only for testis delivery but also to aid the testicular dissection. We used the technique for 15 abdominal testes in 13 boys and it was safe, and very helpful in dissecting the vascular pedicle to higher levels in an ergonomically easier plane. In addition, it helped in establishing the tract and eventually guiding the dissected testis to the desired scrotal position (12 low and 3 mid-scrotal).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)
The joining of RNA from two different genes. One type of trans-splicing is the "spliced leader" type (primarily found in protozoans such as trypanosomes and in lower invertebrates such as nematodes) which results in the addition of a capped, noncoding, spliced leader sequence to the 5' end of mRNAs. Another type of trans-splicing is the "discontinuous group II introns" type (found in plant/algal chloroplasts and plant mitochondria) which results in the joining of two independently transcribed coding sequences. Both are mechanistically similar to conventional nuclear pre-mRNA cis-splicing. Mammalian cells are also capable of trans-splicing.
A mutation named with the blend of insertion and deletion. It refers to a length difference between two ALLELES where it is unknowable if the difference was originally caused by a SEQUENCE INSERTION or by a SEQUENCE DELETION. If the number of nucleotides in the insertion/deletion is not divisible by three, and it occurs in a protein coding region, it is also a FRAMESHIFT MUTATION.
A member of the P450 superfamily, this enzyme catalyzes the first oxidative step of the phenylpropanoid pathway in higher PLANTS by transforming trans-cinnamate into p-coumarate.
