Fast Track in Abdominal Aortic Surgery: Experience in over 1000 Patients.

Fast-track recovery programs have led to reduced patient morbidity and mortality after surgery. Minimally invasive surgery and anaesthesia, with programs of early postoperative recovery are the main aspects of fast-track recovery programs. The optimization of pain control, early mobilization and oral feeding allow for a rapid functional rehabilitation, which leads to minor morbidity and early discharge from the hospital to home.

A pulseless limb poorly predicts an arterial injury in combat trauma.

A pulseless limb is considered a hard sign of an arterial injury following penetrating trauma in the civilian population. However, the reliability of this finding has never been examined in combat trauma. The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability of the pulseless limb in the combat trauma population. Reasons for false positive physical examination findings were also identified.

Permacol interposition graft as an alternative to vein in contaminated wounds using a rabbit model.

Vascular injuries are common in trauma and often involve massive soft tissue injury and segmental arterial loss. Current practice utilizes either autogenous vein or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) for interposition grafting in arterial injuries. Decision making between autogenous or synthetic conduit pivots around the physiologic state of the trauma patient. Vein is known to increase operative times in an already physiologically depleted patient while synthetic graft can be simply pulled from the shelf. Howe...

Detecting disease genes of non-small lung cancer based on consistently differential interactions.

Systematic identification of causal disease genes can shed light on the mechanisms underlying complex diseases and provide crucial information to develop efficient biomarkers or design suitable therapies. The present paper describes a novel approach to detect potential disease genes for lung cancer, based on consistently differential interaction (CDI) scheme from heterogeneous disease datasets. In particular, reliable disordered regulations in disease states were discovered by identifying the CDIs, from whi...

Accommodations Use Patterns in High School and Postsecondary Settings for Students Who Are d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

Using data from the second National Longitudinal Transition Study (Newman et al., 2011), the authors investigated longitudinal patterns of educational accommodations use in secondary and, later, postsecondary settings by students who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing (SDHH). The study focused on language and communication (LC) accommodations used primarily by SDHH, plus non-LC accommodations typically used by a broad range of students. Both LC accommodations for standardized testing and instruction showed decre...

Attitudes Toward the Capabilities of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adults: Insights From the Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children.

Children who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) grow up in environments influenced by their parents' attitudes, which may facilitate or impede these children's development and participation (World Health Organization, 2007). The attitudes of 152 Australian parents of DHH children ages 3 years 7 months to 9 years 5 months (M = 6 years 5 months) were investigated with the Opinions About Deaf People Scale (Berkay, Gardner, & Smith, 1995a). The parents' responses showed very positive attitudes toward the ...

American Sign Language and Deaf Culture Competency of Osteopathic Medical Students.

The study examined the effectiveness of a workshop on Deaf culture and basic medical American Sign Language for increasing osteopathic student physicians' confidence and knowledge when interacting with ASL-using patients. Students completed a pretest in which they provided basic demographic information, rated their confidence levels, took a video quiz on basic medical signs, and experienced a practical standardized encounter with a Deaf patient. They then attended a 4-hour workshop and, 2 weeks later, compl...

A Reversed-Typicality Effect in Pictures but Not in Written Words in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adolescents.

Two experiments investigated Chinese deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) adolescents' recognition of category names in an innovative task of semantic categorization. In each trial, the category-name target appeared briefly at the screen center followed by two words or two pictures for two basic-level exemplars of high or middle typicality, which appeared briefly approximately where the target had appeared. Participants' reaction times when they were deciding whether the target referred to living or nonliving thi...

Career-Related Parental Support of Adolescents With Hearing Loss: Relationships With Parents' Expectations and Occupational Status.

The study examined the contribution of parents' occupational status and expectations regarding persons with hearing loss to career-related support they provide their deaf and hard of hearing (dhh) adolescent children. Thirty-eight parents completed the Evaluation of Occupational Competence Scale (Weisel & Cinamon, 2005), the Evaluation of Family Competence Scale (Caprara, Regalia, Scabini, Barbaranelli, & Bandura, 2004), the Career-Related Parent Support Scale (Turner, Alliman-Brissett, Lapan, Udipi...

The effects of reference genes in qRT-PCR assays for determining the immune response of bovine cells (MDBK) infected with the Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus 1 (BVDV-1).

The bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) causes significant economic losses to the dairy industry worldwide, and understanding its infection mechanisms would be extremely useful in designing new and efficient treatments. Due to the limited number of specific antibodies against bovine proteins, differential gene expression analyses are vital for researching host immune responses to viral infection. qRT-PCR provides a sensitive platform to conduct such gene expression analyses, but suitable housekeeping genes a...

Further development of the theory and mathematical description of combined toxicity: An approach to classifying types of action of three-factorial combinations (a case study of manganese-chromium-nickel subchronic intoxication).

For characterizing the three-factorial toxicity, we proposed a new health risk-oriented approach, the gist of which is a classification of effects depending on whether a binary combined toxicity's type remains virtually the same or appears to be either more or less adverse when modeled against the background of a third toxic. To explore possibilities of this approach, we used results of an experiment in which rats had been injected ip 3 times a week (up to 20 injections) with a water solution of either one ...

Treatment adherence in schizophrenia: A patient-level meta-analysis of combined CATIE and EUFEST studies.

The Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness (CATIE) obtained a sample of 1493 chronic schizophrenia patients. The European First Episode Schizophrenia Trial (EUFEST) studied a sample of 498 patients. We have combined these two samples to study the predictors and correlates of adherence to treatment. Here we report on adherence to pharmacological treatment at the six and twelve month assessments of these trials with a combined subsample of 1154 schizophrenia patients. Individual patients...

Short-term withdrawal from developmental exposure to cocaine activates the glucocorticoid receptor and alters spine dynamics.

Although glucocorticoid receptors (GRs) contribute to the action of cocaine, their role following developmental exposure to the psychostimulant is still unknown. To address this issue, we exposed adolescent male rats to cocaine (20mg/kg/day) from post-natal day (PND) 28 to PND 42 and sacrificed them at PND 45 or 90. We studied the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), a brain region that is still developing during adolescence. In PND 45 rats we found enhanced GR transcription and translation as well as increased...

Cadmium accumulation in leaves of leafy vegetables.

Leafy vegetables have a relatively high potential for Cd uptake and translocation, and are thus considered Cd accumulators. For this reason, leaves and roots of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) and endive (Cichorium endivia L.) plants, grown on different agricultural soils in Campania region (southern Italy), subjected to different fertilisation treatments (unfertilisation, compost amendment and mineral fertilisation), were analysed for Cd concentrations. Moreover, to clarify if the highest concentrations found ...
