Appearance of large scavenger receptor A-positive cells in peripheral blood: A potential risk factor for severe exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Fresh peripheral blood (PB) samples from 432 outpatients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were examined. Patients were classified into Group A (large SRA cells were undetected) and Group B (large SRA cells were detected) and followed-up for 1 year. Patients were further subdivided according to Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stage. Cox proportional hazard model had shown that Gold, Group, home oxygen therapy (HOT), and treatment were significant predicto...

Effects of sustained inflation (SI) and pressure- controlled ventilation (PCV) on respiratory mechanics, early central drive, and hemodynamics in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) were investigated and compared. A retrospective analysis of 26 patients with ARDS, who were admitted to the Yiwu Central Hospital from March 2015 to March 2016, was performed. According to the ventilation method adopted by the patients with ARDS, 13 patients who received SI treatment were included in the SI ...

Deterioration of postural deformity in Parkinson's disease patients with punding and hobbyism.

This study aimed to examine whether worsening of postural deformities is seen in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients who exhibit the behavioral disorders punding or hobbyism (P-H), which involve maintaining the same poor posture. The subjects were 80 patients with PD (aged 73.1 ± 8.8 years; duration of disease, 6.4 ± 5.5 years). Using the Japanese-language version of the Questionnaire for Impulsive-Compulsive Disorders in Parkinson's Disease (J-QUIP), a group with P-H alone (P-H only group) and ...


Bronchodilation induced by PGE is impaired in Group-III pulmonary hypertension.

In patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with lung disease and/or hypoxia (Group III), a reduction of pulmonary vascular tone and tissue hypoxia are considered therapeutically beneficial. Prostaglandin (PG) E and PGI induce potent relaxation of human bronchi from non-PH (control) patients via EP4 and IP receptors, respectively. However, the effects of PGE /PGI and their mimetics on human bronchi from PH-patients are unknown. Our aim was to compare the relaxant effects of several PGI -mimetics...

Combination of photodynamic therapy with 5-aminolevulinic acid and micro-needling in the treatment of alopecia areata resistant to conventional therapies: our experience on 41 patients.

Alopecia areata (AA) is a difficult to treat disease. The available treatment options are actually beneficial for limited cases with high relapse rate. Our study aimed to evaluate a new therapeutic option of moderate-to-severe AA based on the combination of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) and micro-needling (MN). The enrolled forty-one patients were randomly divided in 3 groups: Group-A, treated with MN alone (9 patients); Group-B, treated with ALA-PDT (15 patients); Group-C, tre...

Targeted temperature management (TTM) is widely used for postcardiac arrest management of patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. However, the use of TTM for patients with in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) is controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of TTM in the management of patients with IHCA. The medical records of all IHCA patients who were resuscitated and returned to spontaneous circulation from January 2011 to December 2016 were reviewed. After excluding patients with n...

Early or Late Transplantation in Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome: Which is Effective for Optimal Growth?

Congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS) is a genetic disease that is present in the antenatal period or during the first 3 months of life. In this study, we aimed to compare growth parameters of patients with CNS who received kidney transplants and either (1) had a normal glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at the time of transplant or (2) chronic kidney disease (CKD) at the time of transplant. Patients with a diagnosis of CNS who had a minimum follow-up period of 6 months were evaluated retrospectively. Children ...

Cortical microinfarcts in patients with multiple lobar microbleeds on 3 T MRI.

The pathogenesis of cortical microinfarcts (CMIs) is considered to be heterogeneous including cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) such as hypertensive vasculopathy (HV) and cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Recent advances in MRI have enabled the detection of CMIs in vivo. To investigate the characteristics of CMIs in advanced cerebral SVD, we performed a retrospective analysis of 85 patients with cognitive impairment who had multiple lobar cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) on 3 T MRI. Among them, 41 (48.2%) pa...

Outcomes in different age groups with primary Ewing sarcoma of the spine: a systematic review of the literature.

OBJECTIVEEwing sarcoma (ES) is among the most prevalent of bone sarcomas in young people. Less often, it presents as a primary lesion of the spine (5%-15% of patients with ES).METHODSA systematic literature search was performed, querying several scientific databases per PRISMA guidelines. Inclusion criteria specified all studies of patients with surgically treated ES located in the spine. Patient age was categorized into three groups: 0-13 years (age group 1), 14-20 years (age group 2), and > 21 (age group ...

Is pharmacological anticoagulant prophylaxis necessary for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery?

We report the outcomes of mechanical prophylaxis and chemoprophylaxis in patients who underwent elective surgery for idiopathic adolescent scoliosis (AIS).We retrospectively studied the patients who underwent posterior spinal instrumentation for AIS. The patients were divided into three groups: Group A low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) started at 8 hours after surgery; Group B LMWH started at 24 hr after surgery; Group C did not receive chemoprophylaxis. The data about wound oozing, need for transfusion, ...

Surgical treatment of displaced clavicle fractures with a novel intramedullary device; comparison of less-invasive versus standard technique.

This study compared the standard technique with a less invasive technique for implantation of Sonoma Crx device in patients with displaced clavicle fractures. Patients were randomly allocated into two treatment groups based on the planned surgical method; Group 1 patients (n = 36) received the standard method whereas group 2 patients (n = 35) received the less invasive method originally developed by our team. Follow-up information included radiographic data, quick-DASH scoring, range of motion measurement a...

Clinical usefulness of scales for evaluating cognitive impairment in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Cognitive impairment is a common non-motor symptom of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); however, scales suitable for detecting cognitive impairment in ALS patients in clinical practice are unclear. In this study, the Mini-Mental State Examination, Frontal Assessment Battery, and Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) were evaluated in 68 patients with ALS. The patients were classified into 3 groups based on the results of these clinical scales: group N, patients with scores higher than the cut-offs in all ...

Puerarin was dissolved in 10 ml normal saline before CPB...

Alterations in platelet bioenergetics in Group 2 PH-HFpEF patients.

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is characterized by elevated pulmonary artery pressure but classified into subgroups based on disease etiology. It is established that systemic bioenergetic dysfunction contributes to the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension classified as World Health Organization (WHO) Group 1. Consistent with this, we previously showed that platelets from Group 1 PH patients demonstrate increased glycolysis and enhanced maximal capacity for oxidative phosphorylation, which is due to ...

Individualized treatment of head neck squamous cell carcinoma patients aged 70 or older with radiotherapy alone or associated to cisplatin or cetuximab: impact of weekly radiation dose on loco-regional control.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if, in elderly HNC patients, loco-regional control (LRC) is influenced by average weekly radiation dose (AWD). From 2009 to 2017, 150 consecutive HNC elderly patients were analyzed. AWD was calculated by dividing total dose in Gray by overall treatment time in weeks. Patients were divided in 2 groups: Group 1 (70-75 years) and Group 2 (> 75 years). Primary endpoint was LRC; secondary endpoints were overall survival (OS) and compliance to treatment.
