Testosterone is known to regulate male sexual interest, but the exact way that androgens influence men's sexual cognition remains unclear.


Thoracic Surgery Considerations in the Mentally Ill or Handicapped Patient.

Increasing prevalence of mentally ill and handicapped populations requiring surgical thoracic interventions has brought to light their worse associated morbidity and mortality. Baseline functional status, caretaker environment, and mental limitations in day to day life have an impact in the short and long term from these interventions. Aggressive perioperative care, multispecialty approach, technical aspects, palliative procedures, and ethical considerations all play a part in improving outcomes. In this ar...

Management of Malignant Lung Entrapment, the Oncothorax.

Pleural metastasis is a common occurrence in up to 30% of patients with metastatic cancer. When lung entrapment and loculation of fluid occur, treatment is more difficult and we have named this condition "oncothorax." The malignant adhesions that entrap the lung in an oncothorax are not typically amenable to surgical decortication. The standard approach for managing these patients is to place an indwelling catheter. Other options may include pleurectomy and decortication, intrapleural hyperthermic chemoperf...


Synchronous Esophageal and Lung Cancer.

Synchronous lung and esophageal cancers are rare but represent a unique challenge to thoracic surgeons. The literature is limited but series describe long-term survival with curative surgery for concomitant esophageal and lung cancer. Preoperative risk assessment is critical because surgical resection of both cancers requires adequate cardiopulmonary function and performance status. Chemotherapy and radiation are used as adjuvant therapy or as primary treatment of unresectable lesions. Although long-term su...

Metal-organic frameworks as stationary phase for application in chromatographic separation.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as a subclass of coordination polymers, have attracted wide interest in various field. Herein, we focus on its application in chromatographic separation due to its excellent physical and chemical properties such as large surface area, high porosity, uniform pore sizes and structural diversity. In 2014, a review was published to summarize the most significant advances in MOFs, and their applications in separation science. The present review was an extensive update on applicati...

Prediction of menarcheal status of girls using voice features.

A method for evaluating the menarcheal status of girls on the basis of their voice features is presented in the paper. The registration procedure consists of voice recording and measuring 20 anthropological features. The input feature vector is a combination of voice and anthropometric parameters, counting 220 features. The optimal set of parameters was selected using five different methods: Method A - stepwise regression (first forward, then backward regression) performed on features with statistically dif...

Body composition of Fanconi anemia patients after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

Fanconi anemia is a rare genetic disease linked to bone marrow failure; a possible treatment is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Changes in the nutritional status of Fanconi anemia patients are not very well known. This study aimed to characterize body composition of adult, children and adolescent patients with Fanconi anemia who were submitted to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or not.

Effect of different resin luting cements on the marginal fit of lithium disilicate pressed crowns.

The vertical marginal discrepancy of restorations can increase upon cementation, and poor marginal fit can lead to cement dissolution, marginal discoloration, microleakage, and secondary caries. The amount of increase is related to the type of luting cement used, but how lithium disilicate pressed crowns are affected by different resin cements is unclear.

Knowledge translation in pediatric rehabilitation: expanding access to scientific knowledge.

Visual working memory performance in aphantasia.

Aphantasia, i.e., the congenital inability to experience voluntary mental imagery, offers a new model for studying the functional role of mental imagery in (visual) cognition. However, until now, there have been no studies investigating whether aphantasia can be linked to specific impairments in cognitive functioning. Here, we assess visual working memory performance in an aphantasic individual. We find that she performs significantly worse than controls on the most difficult (i.e., requiring the highest de...

Hepatocellular carcinoma in the era of immunotherapy.

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common malignancy which usually emerges on a background of chronic liver disease. Unfortunately, with contemporary management, patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma have few treatment options, and prognosis is poor. The emergence of immunotherapy has afforded new therapeutic opportunities. This article reviews the clinical evidence for immunotherapy in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma and presents ideas for future drug development.

Family, socioeconomic status and health services: Clues to health care in diabetic patients with lower limb amputations in Andalusia. A qualitative study.

To examine the experience of diabetic care in patients undergoing lower limb amputation.

Biocompatible hollow polymeric particles produced by a mild solvent- and template free strategy.

Macroscopic hollow polymeric particles are attractive materials for various applications such as surgery, food industry, agriculture, etc. However, protocols reporting their synthesis have hitherto made use of organic solvents and/or sacrificial templates, compromising the encapsulation of different bioactive compounds and the process yield. Here, millimeter-size, hollow polymeric particles were synthesized, for the first time, in a solvent- and template free manner onto superhydrophobic surfaces (SHS). The...

Exercise and mental health.

There is a growing body of literature that recognizes the positive effects of exercise on mood states such as anxiety, stress and depression, through physiological and biochemical mechanisms, including endorphins, mitochondria, mammalian target of rapamycin, neurotransmitters and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and via the thermogenic hypothesis. In addition, psychological mechanisms influence the effects of exercise on mood states, as suggested by both the distraction hypothesis and the self-effic...

Vitamin D and walking speed in older adults: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

Vitamin D is involved in musculoskeletal health. There is no consensus on a possible association between circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) concentrations and walking speed, a 'vital sign' in older adults. Our objective was to systematically review and quantitatively assess the association of 25OHD concentration with walking speed. A Medline search was conducted on June 2017, with no limit of date, using the MeSH terms "Vitamin D" OR "Vitamin D Deficiency" combined with "Gait" OR "Gait disorders, Neuro...

Metabolic adaptation of intracellular bacteria and fungi to macrophages.

The mature phagosome of macrophages is a hostile environment for the vast majority of phagocytosed microbes. In addition to active destruction of the engulfed microbes by antimicrobial compounds, restriction of essential nutrients in the phagosomal compartment contributes to microbial growth inhibition and killing. However, some pathogenic microorganisms have not only developed various strategies to efficiently withstand or counteract antimicrobial activities, but also to acquire nutrients within macrophage...

Anatomic findings associated with epispadias in boys: Implications for surgical management and urinary continence.

Pre-operative physical examination of male epispadias allows for classification of epispadias level as glanular (GE), penile (PE) or penopubic (PPE), and for delineation of anatomic anomalies. The incidence of associated extragenital abnormalities, such as vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), bladder neck (BN) abnormality and abnormal pubic diastasis (PD), and their impact on urinary continence has not yet been systematically studied.

Multifocal Best's disease: The importance of genetic tests.

Our objective is to describe a multifocal vitelliform presentation of Best's disease. The lesions in this disease may vary in size and shape, some may be a disc diameter in size, and often have some irregularity in their contour. The case is described of a 21-year-old male patient referred to our ophthalmology department due to a progressive loss of vision. His poor visual acuity was confirmed, and a complete examination was performed, in which macular flecks were observed, with yellow pigment arranged in o...

Do factors related to participation in physical activity change following restrictive bariatric surgery? A qualitative study.

To explore participants' ability to participate in physical activity (PA), and barriers and facilitators to PA, at 12 months following restrictive bariatric surgery, and how these differed from participants' pre-surgery perceptions. Motivators for PA post-surgery were also explored.

Maternal deaths due to amniotic fluid embolism. Results from the French confidential enquiry into maternal deaths, 2010-2012.

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is an unpredictable, dreadful complication of pregnancy or childbirth. EA typically includes in the same lapse of time respiratory, haemodynamic, neurological and hemorrhagic symptoms (from early and severe coagulopathy). Immediate supportive treatment by a multidisciplinary team is the cornerstone of the management. Between 2010 an 2012 in France, 24 deaths were related to AFE giving a maternal mortality ratio of 1/100,000 live births (CI 95% 0.6-1.4). AFE ranks as the second...

Recurrent and disseminated pityriasis versicolor: A novel clinical form consequent to Malassezia-host interaction?

Pityriasis versicolor is a superficial fungal infection caused by Malassezia spp. The aim of this study is to propose the definition of a new clinical entity: the recurrent and disseminated pityriasis versicolor (RDPV). All patients with RDPV were enrolled over an eight-month period. Clinical and epidemiological data were obtained, Malassezia (M.) species were isolated in cultures and identified by phenotypic and molecular characterization, skin biopsies were taken from active lesions, serum levels of immun...

Transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation may be beneficial in the treatment of premature ejaculation.

Approximately 20-30% of sexually active men suffer from Premature Ejaculation (PE), but the pathophysiology still remains unclear and the current available treatments for PE are unsatisfying. Considering the role of rhythmic bulbospongiosus and ischiocavernosus Muscles contractions on the ejaculatory reflex, we hypothesize that weakening this muscles via inhibiting it's contractions by Application of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation prior to the planned sexual activity, may have a beneficial effect in t...

Paternal transmission of early life traumatization through epigenetics: Do fathers play a role?

Traumatizing events are known to have consequences for the victim which may lead to the development of several well-known mental disorders. Recent research has shown that traumatic events may affect not only the victims' lives, but also that of their progeny. It is generally accepted that this transmission of trauma occurs through parental behavior; however as has been recently discovered, the effects of trauma may also be inherited due to induced alterations in gene expression. These changes, so called epi...

Are the estrogenic hormonal effects of environmental toxins affecting small intestinal bacterial and microfilaria overgrowth?

The important role of microfilaria (worms) in human and animal disease remains an area of key disagreement between the naturopathic and allopathic physicians. While microfilaria infections are rampart in undeveloped countries, they rarely rise to identification as a cause of disease in Western countries. New research studies in the diagnosis and treatment of SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and (IBD) Inflammatory Bowel Diseases of ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease and microcytic colitis may ma...
