Sinuses and Common Rhinologic Conditions.

Some of the most common rhinologic disorders that may present to the primary care provider include disorders of hemostasis, such as epistaxis, or sinonasal inflammatory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis and acute or chronic rhinosinusitis. This article is written with the intent to review these common rhinologic conditions for primary care providers and to summarize symptoms, diagnostic testing...

Arthroplasty as primary treatment for distal humeral fractures produces reliable results with regards to revisions and adverse events: a registry-based study.

Primary prosthetic replacement has become an accepted method for the treatment of complex distal humeral fractures. The present study investigated implant survival and adverse events related to this procedure based on available Swedish registries and examined the completeness of the Swedish Elbow Arthroplasty register.

MicroRNA-874 targeting SUFU involves in osteoblast proliferation and differentiation in osteoporosis rats through the Hedgehog signaling pathway.

Osteoporosis is widely viewed as a major public health concern, but the exact magnitude of the problem is uncertain. MicroRNAs play a key role in maintaining bone development and metabolism. This study aims to investigate the effects that microRNA-874 (miR-874) has on osteoblast proliferation and differentiation in osteoporosis rats by targeting SUFU through the Hedgehog signaling pathway. Twenty ...

Midterm Results of Total Hip Arthroplasty in Patients With High Hip Dislocation After Suppurative Hip Arthritis.

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is technically challenging in patients with high dislocation of the hip secondary to suppurative arthritis. The technical difficulty is attributable to the complex hip anatomy and the potential risk of recurrent infection in these patients. This study investigated the midterm results of THA in patients with Crowe type III and IV high dislocation of the hip secondary to...

Three-Dimensional Host Bone Coverage Required in Total Hip Arthroplasty for Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip and Its Relationship With 2-Dimensional Coverage.

In total hip arthroplasty, the minimum host bone coverage required on the cup for stable fixation has been previously reported; however, the coverage was generally evaluated on a 2-dimensional (2D) image and 3-dimensional (3D) coverage has not been well described.

Total Hip Arthroplasty in Ankylosing Spondylitis With Extension Contracture of Hips.

Despite significant pain relief following total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, a small subset of patients presenting with extra-articular extension contracture of hips remains unsatisfied.

Imagery-based treatment for test anxiety: A multiple-baseline open trial.

Many students are affected by test anxiety (TA), which involves considerable distress and can lead to reduced performance. Despite its prevalence, TA has been under-studied; specifically, few effective and brief interventions have been identified to date. In our work, we explore the adaptation of imagery, an emotion-focused treatment technique used widely in the treatment of other anxiety disorder...

Strength training reverses ovariectomy-induced bone loss and improve metabolic parameters in female Wistar rats.

Menopause induces osteoporosis, sarcopenia, insulin resistance, and dyslipidemia. Ovariectomized (OVX) rat is an animal model, which mimetics postmenopausal conditions. The present study aimed to test the effects of strength training protocol on bone mineral density and metabolic parameters in OVX rats. Female Wistar rats were randomly separated in four groups: non-ovariectomized rats (Sham); ovar...

Role of autophagy in inherited metabolic and endocrine myopathies.

The prevalence of cardiometabolic disease has reached an exponential rate of rise over the last decades owing to high fat/high caloric diet intake and satiety life style. Although the presence of dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, hypertension and obesity mainly contributes to the increased incidence of cardiometabolic diseases, population-based, clinical and genetic studies have revealed a rather ...

Abaloparatide, a novel osteoanabolic PTHrP analog, increases cortical and trabecular bone mass and architecture in orchiectomized rats by increasing bone formation without increasing bone resorption.

Male osteoporosis can occur with advanced age and with hypogonadism, with increased bone resorption and/or inadequate bone formation contributing to reduced bone mass and increased fracture risk. Abaloparatide is a selective PTH receptor agonist that increases bone formation and bone mass in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis and in estrogen-deficient animals. The current study evaluated the e...

Gastrointestinal Disorders in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients.

Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are relatively understudied in the literature, even though they have a serious impact in the morbidity parameters and the quality of life for this group of patients. Various diagnostic tools have been used, including instrumental methods and questionnaires, invariably validated in comparative studies.

Clinical and Genetic Risk Factors Associated with Psoriatic Arthritis among Patients with Psoriasis.

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic, inflammatory arthritis that affects an estimated 30% of patients with psoriasis. PsA is underdiagnosed in primary care and dermatology clinics due to a variety of reasons, including failure of healthcare providers to ask about symptoms, overlap of symptoms and signs with other rheumatologic conditions, and lack of a specific diagnostic test. A delay in PsA d...

Challenges in the treatment of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), is a rare autosomal dominant connective tissue disease with a prevalence of 1 in 2 million. It is characterized by congenital foot deformities and multiple heterotopic ossifications in fibrous tissue. It usually starts with painful soft tissue swellings occurring with attacks at the ages of three or four. The attacks develop spontaneously or after minor...

Dosage effects of human ribosomal genes (rDNA) in health and disease.

Human ribosomal RNA genes encoding a pre-transcript of the three major ribosomal RNA (18S, 5.8S, and 28S rRNA) are tandemly repeated in human genome. Their total copy number varies from 250 to 670 per diploid genome with a mean of approximately 420 copies, but only a fraction of them is transcriptionally active. The functional consequences of human ribosomal RNA gene dosage are not widely known an...

Grammont versus lateralizing reverse shoulder arthroplasty for proximal humerus fracture: functional and radiographic outcomes.

The aim of this study is to retrospectively compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients treated with non-lateralizing reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) and with humeral lateralizing RSA after proximal humerus fracture (PHF).

Anti-inflammatory and immune-regulatory cytokines in rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by a failure of spontaneous resolution of inflammation. Although the pro-inflammatory cytokines and mediators that trigger RA have been the focus of intense investigations, the regulatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines responsible for the suppression and resolution of disease in a context-dependent manner have been less well ...

On-drug and drug-free remission by baseline symptom duration: abatacept with methotrexate in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis.

Clinical outcomes in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were assessed by baseline symptom duration in the Assessing Very Early Rheumatoid arthritis Treatment trial (; NCT01142726). Patients with early, active RA were randomized to subcutaneous (SC) abatacept 125 mg/week plus methotrexate (MTX), SC abatacept alone, or MTX monotherapy for 12 months. All RA treatments we...

Their information on the basic characteristics and the histological signatures of the cancer...

Prolactin, prolactin disorders, and dopamine agonists during pregnancy.

Pituitary disorders, and especially prolactinomas, are not common among pregnant women, though they tend to occur during a woman's years of fertility. The majority of prolactinoma patients present with infertility and menstruation dysfunction; however, prolactinomas are associated with potentially significant morbidity if they remain unrecognized and untreated. Herein, we survey the role of prolac...
