Finger flexor tenolysis.

Added: 08:00 EDT 16 Sep 2014

Flexor tendon adhesions in zone II are common. The origin of these adhesions is multifactorial. Flexor tenolysis consists of releasing the adhesions to restore the tendon's normal path and the patient's active range of motion. This surgery is complex and extremely delicate. It must be associated with early active mobilization. Any surgical procedure that would hamper this active mobilization must ...

The environmental bacterium Pseudomonas putida is an organism endowed with a versatile metabolism and stress tolerance traits that are desirable in an efficient production organism. In this work, differential RNA sequencing was used to investigate the primary transcriptome and RNA regulatory elements of P. putida strain KT2440. A total of 7937 putative transcription start sites (TSSs) were identif...

The aim of the study was to investigate whether α-tocopherol supplementation in workers exposed to lead would reduce the oxidative stress intensity and decrease homocysteine level. The examined population was randomly divided into two groups. Workers in the first group (n = 49, reference group) were not administered any drugs. Workers in second group (n = 34) were administered orally α-tocophero...

Left ventricular (LV) mass is a rare condition, of which the most common is thrombus. Echocardiography is a very useful modality of investigation to evaluate the LV mass. We are reporting a case of LV mass presenting with neurological symptom. The diagnosis of this mass was dilemma as the echocardiographic features were favoring tumor as well as thrombi. Mass (a) measuring 3.8 cm × 1.9 cm attache...

Salmonella is a key cause of foodborne gastroenteritis in Australia and case numbers are increasing. We used negative binomial regression to analyze national surveillance data for 2000-2013, for Salmonella Typhimurium and non-Typhimurium Salmonella serovars. We estimated incidence rate ratios adjusted for sex and age to show trends over time. Almost all states and territories had significantly inc...

Burnout has been described as a prolonged response to chronic emotional and interpersonal stress on the job that is often the result of a period of expending excessive effort at work while having too little recovery time. Healthcare workers who work in a stressful medical environment, especially in an intensive care unit (ICU), may be particularly susceptible to burnout. In healthcare workers, bur...

Current commercial H9 avian influenza vaccines cannot provide satisfactory protective immunity against antigenic variant influenza viruses in ducks. Poly I:C, when used as an adjuvant, improves humoral and cellular immunity in many animals but has not been tested in ducks. In this study, we investigated the protective efficacy of Poly I:C as an adjuvant for an inactivated H9N2 Avian influenza vacc...

Empathy is a complex construct, thought to contain multiple components. One popular measurement paradigm, the Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI), has been used extensively to measure empathic tendencies in schizophrenia research across four domains: empathic concern, perspective-taking, personal distress, and fantasy. However, no recent meta-analysis has been conducted for all four factors of th...

Yasui procedure.

Added: 07:00 EST 9 Dec 2016

There are rare situations in which the left ventricular outflow tract cannot be used for systemic output. The Yasui procedure allows leaving the left ventricle as the systemic ventricle, but uses the pulmonary valve as the systemic semilunar valve. These videos illustrate the technical aspects of the Yasui procedure.

Refractory breathlessness is a highly prevalent and distressing symptom in advanced chronic respiratory disease. Its intensity is not reliably predicted by the severity of lung pathology, with unhelpful emotions and behaviours inadvertently exacerbating and perpetuating the problem. Improved symptom management is possible if clinicians choose appropriate non-pharmacological approaches, but these r...

The production of poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) by photosynthetic cyanobacteria is a potentially sustainable production method for the biodegradable plastics industry. β-Ketoacyl-ACP reductase (FabG), from the photosynthetic cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 (SpFabG), is the first NADPH-dependent reductase in the fatty acid biosynthesis pathway. Its structure is similar to that of acetoace...

As the transient postnatal hormone surge in humans, known as 'minipuberty', occurs simultaneously with key steps in germ-cell development, we investigated whether similar changes occur in the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis of neonatal mice at a time that would coincide with gonocyte transformation into spermatogonial stem cells (SSC). Serum and testes were collected from C57Bl/6 mice at em...

Nucleobase methylations are ubiquitous posttranscriptional modifications of ribonucleic acids (RNA) that can substantially increase the structural diversity of RNA in a highly dynamic fashion with implications for gene expression and human disease. However, high throughput, deep sequencing does not generally provide information on posttranscriptional modifications (PTMs). A promising alternative a...

Genome-wide mapping of protein-DNA interactions is critical for understanding gene regulation, chromatin remodeling, and other chromatin-resident processes. Formaldehyde crosslinking followed by chromatin immunoprecipitation and high-throughput sequencing (X-ChIP-seq) has been used to gain many valuable insights into genome biology. However, X-ChIP-seq has notable limitations linked to crosslinkin...
