    Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a congenital, clinically and ultrastructurally heterogeneous disease caused by abnormal structure and/or function of cilia. Kartagener's syndrome is one subgroup of PCD. Acquired ciliary dyskinesia is frequent, generally being associated with or...

    The article presents a medical case of situs inversus and ciliary immotility in a 41-year-old Punjabi woman who was referred for investigation of palpitations. Previous studies have shown that patients with Kartagener's syndrome share a defect of ciliary motility and therefore reduced lung...

    We report a female patient with situs inversus, dextrocardia, a complex heart malformation, hydrocephalus due to aqueductal stenosis, and abnormal ultrastructure of the respiratory epithelium cilia. Several animal models of this disorder implicate abnormal ciliary function in the genesis of...

    The effect of functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) was evaluated in 20 patients with chronic sinusitis. The physiological function of sinus mucosa and its mucociliary transport mechanism was assessed pre and post operatively in patients undergoing FESS by performing Saccharin clearance...

    Primary ciliary dyskinesia is characterized by congenital impairment of mucociliary clearance. Kartagener syndrome (KS) is a clinical variant of primary ciliary dyskinesia which is involved in situs inversus associated with chronic respiratory infections. In addition, glomerular disease in KS...

    Primary ciliary dyskinesia is a genetic disorder causing dysfunctional motility of cilia and impaired mucociliary clearance, resulting in a myriad of clinical manifestations including recurrent sinopulmonary disease, laterality defects and infertility. The heterogenous clinical presentation of...

    Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MPP) is characterized by ciliary ultrastructural abnormalities that cause abnormal mucociliary function leading to refractory or persistent pneumonia. Herein, we analyzed ciliary ultrastructural defects in 22 children with MPP and determined the association of...

    Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare autosomal recessive disease, caused by specific primary structural and/or functional abnormalities of the motile cilia, in contrast with the transitory abnormalities seen in secondary ciliary dyskinesia. Disease-causing mutations in at least 16 genes...

    Ciliary beating and metachronal waves are fundamental to effective mucociliary transport. The ciliary beat frequencies (CBFs) and metachronal wave directions of multiple cilia beating in culture media were measured simultaneously using digital microscopic images. The degree of synchronisation...
