Charles Vanbrugghe et.al. conducted a study to identify the risk factors of clinically relevant pancreatic fistula post distal pancreatectomy. The researchers concluded that visceral obesity, blood loss ≥ 225 ml and open passive drainage significantly increase the risk of clinically relevant pancreatic fistula following distal pancreatectomy.
Researchers compared thirty‐one patients with clinically probable Alzheimer's Disease with 25 patients with a typical pattern of decreased posterior metabolism. They concluded that there is more than a typical metabolic pattern in probable AD with amnestic presentation.
Michelle Kelly et.al. is conducting a study to to apply the Eco-Bio Developmental Model of Poverty and Preterm Birth (EBDPPB) to cross-sectional data from 2016 National Survey of Children's Health in order to explain the interaction between extrinsic factors of poverty and toxic stress and educational outcomes of children born preterm.
Chén C. Kenyon et.al. conducted a study to assess the relationship between perceived access to timely office-based care and subsequent 30-day revisits following hospital discharge for 4 common respiratory illnesses. The researchers concluded that out of the 2438 children included in the study 89% reported an office visit in the previous 6 months.
Jin-Wen TIAN et.al. conducted a study to determine the efficacy of a new method for opening culprit vessels to treat STEMI: intracoronary arterial retrograde thrombolysis (ICART) with PCI. The researchers concluded that ICART may be a breakthrough in the treatment of acute STEMI.
Shelley Valle et.al. conducted a study to investigate GnRH-mediated changes in HPG axis activity and gonadal development in response to energy availability in a wild bird. The researchers concluded that food restriction did not affect plasma luteinizing hormone but but it enhanced the plasma LH response to an injection of the glutamatergic agonist.
In this study, they tested the ability of Neosalus® foam to penetrate into the viable epidermis and in addition assessed its antibacterial properties. The ability of components of Neosalus® to be taken up into the viable epidermis and potentially made available for incorporation into the barrier lipids, combined with antibacterial properties, indicate that this formulation may be valuable not only in chronic hand dermatitis but also in various other forms of dermatitis.
Jehangir et.al. conducted a study to characterize abdominal pain in gastroparesis patients in neuropathic and nociceptive pain components and assessing patients for hypervigilance to pain. The researchers concluded that over one third of abdominal pain in gastroparesis patients have a neuropathic component to their pain whereas nearly two thirds have characteristics of somatic pain.
This study is to investigate whether partial laryngectomy is a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the effect of different partial laryngectomy methods on OSA. Laryngeal function preservation surgery for laryngeal cancer results in the occurrence of OSA by altering the anatomical structure of the larynx and pharynx. OSA was more severe in patients undergoing supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) than in patients undergoing vertical partial laryngectomy (VPL).
Roberta Fusco et.al. conducted a study to assess the prognostic factor of morphological and functional magnetic resonance imaging in rectal cancer. The researchers concluded that lesion vascularization and lymph node number had a predictive value for neoadjuvant treatment complete response in rectal cancer.
