Little data is available on gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and body fat distribution in healthy individuals. We examined whether GGT within normal range is prospectively associated with total body fat (TF) and regional body fat distribution.
To determine the incidence of systemic inflammatory response of the organism in surgical patients and its impact on the outcome of treatment.
Traditionally, the diagnosis of postural instability relies on the clinical examination of static balance. In recent years, computerized technologies have provided a new approach for the accurate detection of positional changes during functional balance.
The aim of this study was to analyze frequency of embitterment in war veterans with Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Prevention is the ideal strategy to tackle the problem of pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcer risk assessment scales are one of the most pivotal measures applied to tackle the problem, much criticisms has been developed regarding the validity and reliability of these scales.
Duplicated ureter or Duplex Collecting System is a congenital condition in which the ureteric bud, the embryological origin of the ureter, arises twice, resulting in two ureters draining a single kidney. This congenital anomaly is rare, and even rarer when the duplex system with ectopic ureter is present. This type of congenital anomaly is even more rarely diagnosed and surgically treated in adulthood.
Arteriovenous Pearson syndrome is a very rare multisystemic mitochondrial disease characterized by sideroblastic anemia and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. It is usually fatal in infancy.
An adnexal mass may be diagnosed after a routine pelvic ultrasonographic examination or an emergent hospital admission due to rupture of ectopic pregnancy, adnexal torsion or rupture of tuboovarian abscess.
