Perioperative Management of Female Hormone Medications.

CONCLUSION: Until additional studies are performed, the risks and benefits must be weighed on an individual basis with consideration of prophylaxis when a decision is made to continue these medications in the perioperative period. Part of this decision making includes the risk of fetal harm in an unwanted pregnancy in preparation for nonobstetric surgery versus an increased risk of venous thromboembolism.

Conclusions/Implications for Practice: In the aftermath of fetal death, health professionals should use insightful and empathic communication skills to help mothers cope with their loss. In addition, some of the participants wanted to see their babies, and some did not. Thus, individualized care is very important for women who experience pregnancy loss.

In this study, we investigated FTH1 mRNA expression and its diagnostic and prognostic value in RCC. MATERIAL AND METHODS The mRNA expression of FTH1 was analyzed using including Oncomine, Gene Expression Omnibus, and Cancer Genome Atlas datasets, while the protein level of FTH1 was analyzed using the Human Protein Atlas database. The associations between FTH1 and clinicopathologic characteristics and survival time and Cox multivariate survival analysis were analyzed using SPSS 22.0 software. A meta-analysis was performed to assess consistency of FTH1 expression. GO, KEGG, and PPI analyses were used to predict biological fu...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of a pressure injury prevention algorithm on pressure injury prevention. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: This intervention study was conducted in the anesthesiology and reanimation ICU (ARICU) of a university hospital. The study included two sample groups (nurses and patients). All patients older than 18 years (prealgorithm, n = 80; postalgorithm, n = 74) in the ARICU who verbally consented were included in the study. All 15 nurses who worked in the ARICU during the postalgorithm period agreed to participate in the study. INTERVENTIONS: The study was performed in four phases. In...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate possible predictors and prevalence of surgical site infections (SSIs) in a group of Mexican patients who underwent open abdominal surgery. METHODS: This retrospective study included all patients (N = 755) who underwent elective or emergency open abdominal surgeries from October 2011 to March 2012. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Sociodemographic and clinical characteristics were collected through preoperative and postoperative examinations by the infection surveillance team. The relationship among variables (age, gender, body mass index, comorbidities, smoking habit, antimicrobial prophylaxis, hair ...

However, most systems have low drug loading capacity and cause safety concerns. Therefore, many anticancer therapeutics have recently been assembled to NPs form without using any additional nanocarrier to achieve high drug loading. However, carrier-free nanomedicines are often constrain...
