Delta neutrophil index (DNI) is the fraction of circulating immature granulocytes provided by a routine, complete blood cell analyzer. It is known to be a useful prognostic marker of sepsis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of DNI in the diagnosis and prognosis of patients who had undergone emergent surgery for an acute abdomen.
This article was published in the following journal.

The complete blood cell count (CBC) and peripheral blood smear were the most commonly ordered tests for the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis. Delta neutrophil index (DNI) shows leucocyte differentiation a...
Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has recently emerged as a useful predictor of cardiovascular risk and adverse outcomes. According to previous studies, an NLR > 5 has the highest sensitivity and s...
The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an independent prognostic marker in solid and hematological cancers. While the derived NLR (dNLR) was shown to be non-inferior to the NLR in large cohorts o...
The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has become a prognostic marker for pro-inflammatory states. It is associated with outcomes in many clinical processes including critical limb ischemia. We soug...
This study evaluated the prognostic value of preoperative neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio(NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio(PLR), and systemic immune inflammation index(SII) in patients with Glioblast...
The aim of this study is to determine if delta-haemolysin production deficiency of Staphylococcus aureus is a marker in favour of chronic infections on implants
Tissue hypoxia is one of the most important factors leading to the development of multiorgan failure. Patients presenting for emergent major abdominal surgery might suffer from organ hypop...
The aim of this study is to verify if high values of RDW are useful prognostic marker for ICU mortality and 90-days mortality. Moreover, we will investigate the prognostic value of RDW in ...
Our project aims to assess and validate an innovative prognostic and diagnostic test in order to i) define a severity index of the β-thalassemia according to the free α-Hb pool for a bet...
To determine whether a treatment strategy targeting an individualized sufentanil administration based on the Analgesia Nociception Index (ANI) could reduce the total dose of sufentanil dur...
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.
The process in which the neutrophil is stimulated by diverse substances, resulting in degranulation and/or generation of reactive oxygen products, and culminating in the destruction of invading pathogens. The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
