Predictive Value of Nutritional Risk Screening 2002 and Prognostic Nutritional Index for Esophageal Cancer Patients Undergoing Definitive Radiochemotherapy.

The present study identified the prognostic nutritional factors and their relationships with survival outcome in patients with esophageal cancer treated with chemoradiotherapy (CRT).

Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) promote the lymph node metastasis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Lymph node metastasis is a pathognomonic feature of spreading tumors, and overcoming metastasis is a challenge in attaining more favorable clinical outcomes. Esophageal cancer is an aggressive tumor f...

Acid exposure in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease is associated with esophageal dysmotility.

The purpose of this study was to explore the correlation between reflux type and abnormal esophageal motility in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Pediatric Pelvic Ring Injuries.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether pelvic fracture pattern is associated with transfusion requirements or concomitant injuries in pediatric patients. This was a single-institution, ret...

Endoscopic evaluation of the esophagus after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation using contiguous and optimized radiofrequency applications.

The incidence of endoscopically detected esophageal lesions after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is as high as 18%. Intra-esophageal temperature rise (ITR) during ablation is a predictor for esophagea...

Evaluation of Esophageal Injuries in Corrosives in Assiut Governorate - Experimental Comparison Between Different Treatments

Esophageal stricture is one of the most common sequelae of caustic injury. Up to 70% of patients with grade IIB and more than 90% of patients with grade III injury are likely to develop es...

Dose Constraints for the Temporal Lobes of Intensity-modulated Radiotherapy Treatment Plans for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

Radiation-induced temporal lobe injury (TLI) is usually devastating to patients; however, there is a poor understanding of TLI in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients treated with IMRT....

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pulmonary injury following the breathing in of toxic smoke from burning materials such as plastics, synthetics, building materials, etc. This injury is the most frequent cause of death in burn patients.

A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).

An injury in which the damage is located on the opposite side of the primary impact site. A blow to the back of head which results in contrecoup injury to the frontal lobes of the brain is the most common type.

An opening or hole in the ESOPHAGUS that is caused by TRAUMA, injury, or pathological process.

A selective, irreversible inhibitor of Type B monoamine oxidase. It is used in newly diagnosed patients with Parkinson's disease. It may slow progression of the clinical disease and delay the requirement for levodopa therapy. It also may be given with levodopa upon onset of disability. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p385) The compound without isomeric designation is Deprenyl.
