Orbital wall fractures. Conventional views and CT

T IinumaK Ishio


In order to evaluate the benefit derived by conventional views in the initial diagnosis of fractures of the orbital walls, a clinical study was designed to compare the results of evaluations by plain films and coronal CT scans. The conventional Caldwell's and Waters' views will provide a fairly reliable result as to the presence of orbital fractures: orbital floor (anterior in 78%, posterior in 73%), medial orbital wall (anterior in 71%, posterior in 72%), and ethmoid-maxillary plate in 64%. False-negative diagnosis was seen at the anterior portion of the floor in 13%, at the anterior portion of the medial orbital wall in 7%, and at the ethmoid-maxillary plate in 11%. False-negative diagnosis was seen at the orbital floor (anterior in 9%, posterior in 10%), at the medial orbital wall (anterior in 21%, posterior in 29%), and at the ethmoid-maxillary plate in 21%. Our results agree well with those of the past reports.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
