Gynaecomastia is excessive or abnormal enlargement of male breast tissue. It is one of a common problem among young men. The term gynaecomastia means female like enlargement of male breast due to increase ductal tissue, stroma or fat. Most common cause of gynaecomastia is idiopathic. Surgical treatment of gynaecomastia involves liposuction and glandular excision and in few cases skin excision. Here author presents a case of 24 years old young healthy male with Simon’s grade 2B bilateral gynaecomastia. He had stubborn fat over bilateral chest which was resistant to exercise. Gynaecomastia was mixed type in characteristic having adipose tissue as well as glandular tissue enlargement. Bilateral liposuction and glandular excision by limited periareolar incision under general anesthesia as a day care procedure was done. In our procedure we used Cross chest liposuction. Patient was discharged at the same evening without any complications. After four months of follow up patient has male pattern chest with almost invisible scar and intact Nipple areolar complex (NAC) sensation.

We report the case of a premature newborn diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta after spontaneous closure of ductus arteriosus who was successfully managed with prostaglandin E1 infusion until surgical repair could be performed. This case, together with a review of the literature, suggests an important role for prostaglandin in the management of coarctation even in the absence of a patent ductus arteriosus. The putative mechanism for the utility of prostaglandin infusion is that it may relieve the obstruction in neonates with severe coarctation by not only opening of the ductus but, in select cases, relaxing the ductal tissue encircling the aortic isthmus region. We also found a possible dose dependence of the efficacy of the prostaglandin infusion when the ductus is closed.

AbstractAn isolated left common carotid artery is very rare, and only 13 cases have been reported thus far. All those cases were accompanied by a right aortic arch and aberrant left subclavian artery, and the connecting vessel between the pulmonary artery and left common carotid artery was thought to be ductal tissue. However, there have been no reports that have followed the natural closure of this vessel. We present a case in whom we could observe the closing process of this vessel at the connection between the left common carotid artery and main pulmonary artery in association with a tetralogy of Fallot.

AbstractWe describe the case of an infant with DiGeorge syndrome born with a right aortic arch and left arterial duct. Despite the remote location of the right aortic arch from the left arterial duct, he developed coarctation of the aorta during treatment with indomethacin. This was relieved by prostaglandin treatment. This case highlights the fact that, even in the absence of an arterial duct, ductal tissue can still be present in the aorta, and cause coarctation when exposed to indomethacin. We also demonstrate the utility of prostaglandin for relief of this type of obstruction.
