Yagoub, Yanhui Sun, Patrick Owusu-Ansah, Xiaojie Yu, Xule Wang, Xin Xu, Jin Zhang, Zifei RenAbstractThis paper investigated the effects of different pretreatments on the drying process and quality characteristics of catalytic infrared (CIR) dried garlic slices. Different garlic samples, including a control (un-pretreated), and samples pretreated with alcohol, alcohol-ultrasound (US + Alcohol) and water-ultrasound (US + Water) were prepared. The effect of different pretreatments on microstructure of ...

Publication date: Available online 21 September 2019Source: Cirugía Española (English Edition)Author(s): Alexis Luna Aufroy, Salvador Navarro SotoAbstractPreoperative clinical staging is critical to select those patients whose disease is localized and may benefit from surgery with curative intent. Ideally, such staging should predict tumor invasion, lymphatic involvement and distant metastases. With the cTNM, we are able to select patients who could benefit from endoscopic resection, radical surgery or less radical treatment in patients with distant metastasis. The initial diagnosis of adenocarcinomas of the ...

Grant SteenAbstractThe most common fracture in primary care is metatarsal fracture, but it is controversial whether to treat this fracture conservatively or surgically. We performed a cohort study to contrast metatarsal fractures that heal normally with fractures that show delayed healing. We analyzed 5% Medicare Standard Analytic Files, selecting all metatarsal fractures in 2011 to 2013, excluding patients with multiple fractures. Delayed healing was defined a...

ConclusionsAlthough a trend towards increased accuracy in fetal head position determination was observed after simulation-based training, the difference was not statistically significant. Further studies are needed to clarify the role of simulation-based training for fetal head position determination during residency.

Conclusions: Using modified serum lab thresholds, addition of liver fibrosis indices, and/or abdominal US can increase detection of liver nodularity in CF. A combination of GGT, GPR, and APRI can help direct which CF children should undergo US evaluation. These tools may improve earlier identification of fibrosis and/or cirrhosis in CF patients.

Abstract Uterine radial artery resistance index (URa-RI) by Doppler ultrasound may reflect the changes in the uteroplacental circulation and be associated with adverse events in early pregnancy. Recurrent pregnancy losses (RPL) are associated with thrombophilia, and anticoagulation treatment with low molecular weight heparin improves pregnancy outcome in women with RPL and thrombophilia. A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 139 pregnant women with 3 or more RPL and thrombophilia. The relationship between pregnancy outcome and dynamic changes of URa-RI was analyzed in 116 women who delivered a liveborn inf...

Authors: Niu J, Ma J, Guan X, Zhao X, Li P, Zhang M Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the correlation between Doppler ultrasound blood flow parameters and angiogenesis and proliferation activity in breast cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled breast cancer patients (n=55) and benign tumor patients (n=40) from Tengzhou Central People's Hospital from Mar 2014 to Dec 2016. Doppler ultrasound examination was conducted to determine blood flow parameters, and immunohistochemistry (IHC) experiments were performed to determine the protein expression of angiogenesis genes, cell proliferation genes, ...
