Shrunken Pore Syndrome: a Retrospective, Single Center, Cohort Study

2019-10-31 14:29:40 | BioPortfolio


Renal dysfunction is considered a major risk factor in cardiac surgery. Renal function has earlier been estimated by creatinine and more recently by cystatin C, both of which are analysed in a blood sample. New evidence seems to suggest that if the ratio between estimated renal function from cystatin C and creatinine is below 60% the patient has a higher rate of mortality irrespective of renal function. This syndrome is named Shrunken Pore Syndrome.

We study patients whom have undergone elective cardiac surgery at our institution and on whom we before the surgery has collected blood samples. They are all included in our in house patient registry and qulaity database and afterwards we match this data to our national tax registry to get data on mortality.

Our aim is to evaluate whether Shrunken Pore Syndrome influence mortality following elective cardiac surgery.

Removal of Ligand-bound Iron During Intravenous (IV) Iron Administration in Hemodialysis (HD)

The study's hypothesis is that HD with large pore dialyzers remove to the dialysate iron which is bound to potentially dialyzable ligands, after it's release from intravenous iron compound...

Single-centre Single-blinded Randomised Study Evaluating the Impact of Mesh Pore Size on Chronic Pain After Lichtenstein Hernioplasty

The aim of the present study is to determine whether usage of mesh with larger pores, compared with mesh with smaller pores, would result in decreased rate of chronic pain after open ingui...

eGFR, cystatin C and creatinine in shrunken pore syndrome.

Shrunken pore syndrome (SPS) is a condition in which the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) based on serum/plasma cystatin C concentration is significantly lower than the eGFR based on creati...

Evidence for shrunken pore syndrome in children.

The link between cystatin C and mortality independent of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in adults has prompted the "Shrunken Pore Syndrome" (SPS) hypothesis, where high serum cystatin C with normal ...

High porosity with tiny pore constrictions and unbending pathways characterise the 3D structure of intervessel pit membranes in angiosperm xylem.

Pit membranes between xylem vessels play a major role in angiosperm water transport. Yet, their three-dimensional (3D) structure as fibrous porous media remains unknown, largely due to technical chall...

Tillage-induced effects on SOC through changes in aggregate stability and soil pore structure.

Soil structure plays a key role in soil organic carbon (SOC) dynamics. To determine how soil structure and aggregate affects SOC, we collected undisturbed soil cores of 0-5 cm layer (Typic Hapludoll...

Epsilon toxin (Etx), a potent pore forming toxin (PFT) produced by Clostridium perfringens, is responsible for the pathogenesis of enterotoxaemia of ruminants and has been suggested to play a role in ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins involved in the process of transporting molecules in and out the cell nucleus. Included here are: NUCLEOPORINS, which are membrane proteins that form the NUCLEAR PORE COMPLEX; KARYOPHERINS, which carry molecules through the nuclear pore complex; and proteins that play a direct role in the transport of karyopherin complexes through the nuclear pore complex.

An opening through the NUCLEAR ENVELOPE formed by the nuclear pore complex which transports nuclear proteins or RNA into or out of the CELL NUCLEUS and which, under some conditions, acts as an ion channel.

Proteins that form the structure of the NUCLEAR PORE. They are involved in active, facilitated and passive transport of molecules in and out of the CELL NUCLEUS.

A subgroup of cyclic nucleotide-regulated ION CHANNELS of the superfamily of pore-loop cation channels that are opened by hyperpolarization rather than depolarization. The ion conducting pore passes SODIUM, CALCIUM, and POTASSIUM cations with a preference for potassium.

Extensive and rapid death of parenchymal cells in the LIVER, often due to exposure to toxic materials. It is characterized by a soft, flabby, yellow-brown wrinkled, and shrunken liver. It was called "acute yellow atrophy".
