Indoor Wood-Burning Stove and Fireplace Use and Breast Cancer in a Prospective Cohort Study

Conclusions: In this prospective study, using an indoor wood-burning stove/fireplace in the longest adult residence at least once a week and burning either wood or natural gas/propane was associated with a modestly higher risk of breast cancer. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP827 Received: 18 July 2016 Revised: 16 November 2016 Accepted: 09 December 2016 Published: 18 July 2017 Address correspondence to A.J.

Conclusions: PR in patients with end-stage lung disease awaiting lung transplantation on nocturnal NIV is feasible and is associated with improvements of exercise capacity and quality of life. Furthermore, despite more advanced lung disease, patients treated with NIV have an increased benefit of PR compared to patients without NIV while awaiting lung transplantation.Respiration

The objective of this study is to determine scapular positioning at rest and different anatomical planes, the assessment of pain, postural changes and the functionality of upper extremity that is caused by the lack of ergonomic principles among office workers of civil servants in TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus). METHODS: One hundred and eighty-three individuals participated in the study and 2 groups were created by grand scores of Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) tool. Scapular dyskinesis, pain of upper extremity and back, physical functions and symptoms of upper extremity, the self-rated neck disability, ...

CONCLUSION: Electrical impedance of the torso is associated with the pressure pain threshold of myofascial trigger points on the upper trapezius of individuals with neck pain. Thus, individuals with a lower pressure pain threshold have higher electrical impedance values of the torso and vice versa. PMID: 29154261 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ABSTRACT Objective: To explore the influence of infarct location on long-term functional outcome following a first-ever arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) in non-neonate children. Method: The MRIs of 39 children with AIS (median age 5.38 years; 36% girls; mean follow-up time 5.87 years) were prospectively evaluated. Infarct location was classified as the absence or presence of subcortical involvement. Functional outcome was measured using the modified Rankin scale (mRS) for children after the follow-up assessment. We utilized multivariate logistic regression models to estimate the odds ratios (ORs) for the outcome while adjust...

ABSTRACT Solid organ transplantation is a significant development in the treatment of chronic kidney, liver, heart and lung diseases. This therapeutic approach has increased patient survival and improved quality of life. New surgical techniques and immunosuppressive drugs have been developed to achieve better outcomes. However, the variety of neurological complications following solid organ transplantation is broad and carries prognostic significance. Patients may have involvement of the central or peripheral nervous system due to multiple causes that can vary depending on time of onset after the surgical procedure, the tr...

Background: Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), a common acute polyneuropathy, is seen worldwide with significant morbidity and mortality. GBS consists of a number of subtypes. Objective: The aim of this study is to identify clinical characteristics, electrophysiologic changes, clinical course, treatment, and outcome of GBS in Thailand. Material and Methods: Retrospective study of GBS patients aged 15 years or older, admitted to Thammasat University Hospital and Bangkok Hospital Medical Center between January 1, 2009 and November 30, 2014. Results: Thirty patients were found. Demographic characteristics were col...

We describe a case of Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) after the treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab and review 4 other reported cases. We confirmed the diagnosis of GBS by electrodiagnostic and cerebrospinal fluid studies. Electrodiagnostic results showed findings consistent with acquired demyelinating polyneuropathy and cerebrospinal fluid showed albuminocytologic dissociation. All patients were treated with intravenous immunoglobulin or other immunomodulating therapy. Among 5 cases which include our patient, 2 did well, 1 did not improve, and 2 died of respiratory insufficiency and multiorgan failure. Enha...

Conclusions: This case describes a patient with Lambert–Eaton myasthenic syndrome, limbic encephalitis, and autoantibodies to VGCC and GABAB receptor. Atypical presentation of paraneoplastic neurological syndromes could indicate the presence of a second antibody that may have significant impact on therapy.
