Effect of liver fibrotic changes on testicular histological structure: An updated review

The liver plays a crucial role in maintaining adequate endocrine homeostasis including the endocrine function of the testis. Testicular atrophy and gonadal dysfunction have been clinically reported in advanced cirrhotic liver diseases. This study was conducted to review the effect of liver fibrotic changes induced by different agents on the structure of testis and the mechanisms underlying these effects. Chemical-induced…

Cement augmentation of pedicle screw fixation in spine surgery among patients with osteoporosis: a systematic review

Polymethylmethacrylate-augmented screw fixation is regarded to be an effective technique however many complications can occur after augmented screw fixation due to a leakage of cement. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the evidence supporting the use of cement expansion of pedicle screw obsession in spine surgery among osteoporotic patients, its efficacy and the associated complications. An electronic…

Severe melasma image presentation

The changes in pigmentation during pregnancy are mostly physiological; and bioactive molecules released from estrogen, progesterone and placenta are known to play a role in this process. The increase in pigmentation progresses during pregnancy, but it is expected that the skin will return to its original appearance after pregnancy [1,2]. Melasma (chloasma or the mask of pregnancy) describes gray-brown hypermelanosis…
