To report our experience in the diagnosis and management of invasive fungal infections with orbital involvement in children from a subtropical population.
This article was published in the following journal.
The major clinical dilemma managing acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) in pediatric population is distinguishing uncomplicated rhinosinusitis from a complicated bacterial ARS and orbital complications, the la...
The goal of this review was to review our series of isolated malleus fixation in pediatric patients, a rare entity causing conductive hearing loss. Malleolar fixation is poorly described in this patie...
Transnasal endoscopic transsphenoidal approaches constitute an essential technique for the resection of skull base tumors in adults. However, in the pediatric population, sellar and suprasellar lesion...
Characterize clinical features, epidemiology and treatment of hospitalized pediatric cases of preseptal and orbital cellulitis.
Few studies describe long-term functional outcomes of pediatric patients who have undergone lumbar microdiscectomy (LMD) because of the rarity of pediatric disc herniation and the short follow-up peri...
Accuracy of posttraumatic orbital reconstruction of the meidal orbital wall and/or floor is better with preoperatively preformed orbital implants than with non-preformed orbital implants.
The study is a prospective randomized longitudinal clinical study to compare pre-adapted patient-specific orbital implants utilizing an office-based 3-D printer versus standard non-adapted...
A retrospective review to assess the performance and clinical predictive value of a novel software program (Maxillo) designed to perform complex volumetric analysis with application in the...
Orbital masses develop at the expense of the orbital structures lacrimal glands, oculomotor muscles, optic nerve, meningeal spaces, peripheral nerves, bone wall, orbital fat, lymphoid stru...
Aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of endoscopic trans-maxillary surgical approach versus traditional trans-orbital surgical approach (control group) in orbital blow out fractures...
The non-susceptibility to infection of a large group of individuals in a population. A variety of factors can be responsible for herd immunity and this gives rise to the different definitions used in the literature. Most commonly, herd immunity refers to the case when, if most of the population is immune, infection of a single individual will not cause an epidemic. Also, in such immunized populations, susceptible individuals are not likely to become infected. Herd immunity can also refer to the case when unprotected individuals fail to contract a disease because the infecting organism has been banished from the population.
A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).
Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.
Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
