Contributor: Dr. Shashank Sood
Reference: Imaging spectrum of pediatric orbital pathology: A pictorial review ON INDIAN JOURNAL OF OPTHALMOLOGY. Kandpal Harsh, Vashisht Sushma, Sharma Raju, Seith Ashu

Primary orbital varix is a distensible low-flow venous malformation characterized by abnormal dilatation of the orbital veins. Since these veins are in continuity with the systemic circulation, they result in intermittent proptosis whenever the systemic venous pressure increases. Orbital varices can also form secondary to arteriovenous shunting (carotid cavernous fistula) or venous occlusive disease (dural venous sinus thrombosis).[5] Intralesional thrombosis, calcification or hemorrhage can occur. On USG varices are seen as tortuous dilated anechoic tubular channels with slow venous flow. A thrombosed varix may appear hyperechoic. CT and MRI show well-defined, tortuous enhancing channels which often have a club-like configuration with the tapering end towards the orbital apex [Figure - 16].[16] The demonstration of an increase in size during prone coronal scans, during valsalva maneuver or during jugular compression is pathognomonic of orbital varices [Figure - 17]. An association of orbital varices with intracranial venous malformations is reported in 10% cases and therefore investigation should include imaging for the intracranial veins.

(also be known as Stuart-Prower Factor Deficiency)
Factor X deficiency was first discovered in a man with the surname Stuart from North Carolina. While his doctors had originally thought he might have factor VII deficiency, a woman with the surname Prower was determined to have the same clotting abnormality. Researchers realized that this was a new factor and called it the Stuart-Prower factor. It was later renamed Factor X deficiency.

The incidence of Factor X is estimated at 1 in 500,000 births. It is inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion, which means it affects men and women equally.

The factor X protein activates the enzymes that help to form a clot. Several genetic variations of Factor X with varying degrees of severity have been described in the medical literature. People with mild forms of the deficiency, usually do not experience bleeding episodes, but do have bleeding after trauma or surgery. Patients with severe forms of the disease, commonly have joint bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeds, and hematomas. Spontaneous head bleeds, spinal cord bleeds and BLEEDING AT THE SITE OF UMBLICAL CORD have also been reported. Women with Factor X deficiency may have menorrhagia or be susceptible to first trimester miscarriage.

Diagnosis is made through a bleeding time test, prothrombin time (PT) test, and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) test. Diagnosis can be confirmed by a factor X assay, or a ruffle viper venom time assay.


There are no factor X concentrates available and fresh-frozen plasma is normally used as treatment. Prothrombin Complex concentrates (PCCs) have been used in patients, but it is important to know that the amount of factor X in each product in not consistent. There has also been a reported risk of thromboembolic complications with PCC product usage.

Modeling of G-protein-coupled receptors: application to dopamine, adrenaline, serotonin, acetylcholine, and mammalian opsin receptors.Trumpp-Kallmeyer S, Hoflack J, Bruinvels A, Hibert M. Marion Merrell Dow Research Institute (MMDRI), Strasbourg, France.

Hydropathicity analysis of 39 G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) reveals seven hydrophobic stretches corresponding to membrane spanning alpha-helices. The alignment of the primary sequences shows a high degree of homology in the GPCR transmembrane regions. 3D models of 39 GPCRs were generated using the refined model of bacteriorhodopsin as a template. Five cationic neurotransmitter receptors (serotonergic 5-HT2, dopaminergic D2, muscarinic m2, adrenergic alpha 2 and beta 2 receptors) were taken as prototypes and studied in detail. The 3D models of the cationic neurotransmitter receptors, together with their primary structure comparison, indicate that the agonist binding site is located near the extracellular face of the receptor and involves residues of the membrane-spanning helices 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. The binding site consists of a negatively-charged Asp located at the middle of transmembrane helix 3 and a hydrophobic pocket containing conserved aromatic residues on helices 4, 5, 6, and 7. To define the precise receptor-ligand interactions, the natural neurotransmitters were docked into the binding sites. Residues responsible for the affinity, selectivity, and eventually stereospecificity of dopamine, adrenaline, noradrenaline, serotonin, and acetylcholine for their receptors were identified. The ligands are involved in electrostatic interactions as well as hydrogen bonds and specific hydrophobic aromatic interactions. All the GPCRs possess invariant hinge residues, which might be responsible for a conformational change during agonist binding and therefore influence dissociation and association of G-proteins to the receptors. The role of hydrophobic interactions and hydrogen bonds in the conformational change of the receptors, modulating the coupling to the G-protein, is discussed with regard to these residues. The models are in agreement with published data obtained from mutagenesis and labeling studies and represent important working hypotheses to direct future mutagenesis studies. They also enable structure-activity relationship studies and more rational drug design. The 3D models of other G-protein-coupled receptors have been generated in a similar way.
