A retrospective analysis of mathieu and tip urethroplasty techniques for distal hypospadias repair; A 20 year experience.

In this study, the records of 492 consecutive patients that had undergone an operation for distal hypospadias in the urology clinic of Ankara between May 1990 and December 2010 using either Mathieu or TIPU surgical techniques were reviewed retrospectively. The patients who had glanular, coronal, and subcoronal meatus, were accepted as distal hypospadias cases. Among the 492 examined medical records, it was revealed that 331 and 161 surgical interventions were performed by using the Mathieu urethroplasty technique (Group-1) and TIP urethroplasty technique (Group-2), respectively. Group-1 was divided into two subgroups; namely Group-1a (patients with primary hypospadias) and Group-1b (patients with previous hypospadias operation). Likewise, Group-2 was divided into two subgroups; namely group-2a and group-2b. The patients' ages, number of previously urethroplasty operations, localization of the external urethral meatus prior to the operation, chordee state, length of the newly formed urethra, whether urinary diversion was done or not, post-operative complications and data regarding the follow-up period were evaluated, and the effects of these variables on the surgical outcome were investigated via statistical analyses. The primary objective of this study is to identify the changes in the application rate of two surgical techniques in distal hypospadias repair over the a 20 year period, and the secondary objectives are to compare the most popular two surgical repair techniques f...

Authors: Ataol AS, Ergun G Abstract We evaluated the effects of three different surface treatments and two different bonding procedures on shear bond strength of resin composites to different computer-aided design/manufacturing (CAD/CAM) ceramics with or without thermocycling. The test specimens were prepared from three different CAD/CAM ceramics (Group A, IPS e.max CAD; Group B, IPS e.max ZirCAD; Group C, Vita Suprinity). They were divided into eight subgroups according to the surface treatment and bonding procedures. After resin composite was applied to the surfaces of all test specimens, they were stored in dist...

We report a case of ruptured head of posteromedial papillary muscle and prolapse of anterior mitral valve leaflet that caused severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and cardiogenic shock as a complication of inferior wall myocardial infarction in an 80-year-old man. Emergency coronary angiogram revealed thrombotic occlusion at proximal right coronary artery. Transesophageal echocardiogram revealed ruptured head of posteromedial papillary muscle and prolapse of anterior mitral valve leaflet causing severe MR. After percutaneous coronary intervention with bare metal stent, the patient underwent mitral valve repair with saphenous v...

Conclusion: These results suggest that treatment with EPO protects the kidney from ischemic acute renal injury via increasing the mobilization and recruitment of EPCs, resulting in the induction of expression of VEGF that might play an important role in the repair response.

Authors: Fischer V, Haffner-Luntzer M, Amling M, Ignatius A Abstract Calcium and vitamin D are essential for maintaining bone health. Therefore, deficiencies in calcium and vitamin D are major risk factors for osteoporosis development. Because sufficient amounts of calcium are also required for fracture-callus mineralisation, compromised bone repair that is frequently observed in osteoporotic patients might be attributed to calcium and vitamin D deficiencies. Consequently, calcium and vitamin D supplementation represents a potential strategy for treating compromised fracture healing in osteoporotic patients. Growin...

In this study, we investigate mitochondrial energetics and mtDNA methylation in senescent cells, and evaluate the potential of humanin and MOTS-c as novel senolytics or SASP modulators that can alleviate symptoms of frailty and extend health span by targeting mitochondrial bioenergetics. Exercise versus the Hallmarks of Aging https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/06/exercise-versus-the-hallmarks-of-aging/ The paper I'll point out today walks through the ways in which exercise is known to beneficially affect the Hallmarks of Aging. The Hallmarks are a list of the significant causes of aging that I dis...

Conclusion We propose that vaginal repair can relieve symptoms and improved TRM for CSD patients, especially for those who have a retroflexed uterus, though 40% of patients still had a defect post-operatively.

CONCLUSION: A literature review demonstrated that, although uncommon, watersport-related gynaecologic injuries can be life-threatening, and women who regularly engage in watersports can be counselled regarding potential preventative measures. Physicians encountering patients with these injuries should rule out intraperitoneal injury and consider benefits of antibiotics. PMID: 29921429 [PubMed - in process]
