AbstractReconstruction of extensive abdominal wall defects is difficult in many cases. We performed peritoneal reconstruction by free fascia lata transplantation and abdominal wall reconstruction with an extended trilobed rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap. Firstly, the peritoneum is closed by free fascia lata transplantation. Then, the rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap is prepared adjacent to the abdominal wall defect and centering on the rectus abdominis muscle body on the contralateral side. The rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap is elevated with the first flap toward the xiphoid process on the cranial side...

We report case of a 2‐year‐old male patient with EBS diagnosed with stage IV, metastatic HBL successfully treated with multi‐agent chemotherapy while on dialysis whom then underwent a simultaneous liver‐kidney transplant followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Ultimately, the patient achieved cancer remission with normalization of his renal function. Our report emphasizes that patients with HBL in the setting of EBS will not only require careful kidney function monitoring while receiving chemotherapy, but they might also need to undergo multi‐organ transplantation in order to achieve adequate cancer control and also n...

In this study, to discover the effects of iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies on the hematopoietic stem cells, we studied CFU assay from peripheral blood. One hundred and two children were included in our study and were evaluated in five categories: iron deficiency, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency, iron and vitamin B12 deficiency, and controls. As a result of statistical analysis, no significant difference was detected between five groups in terms of CFU assays. The results of our study suggest that, in emergent situations, stem cell samples can be collected before treatment with B12 or iron which are common d...

CONCLUSIONS The findings indicate that the BTLA/HVEM pathway does be involved in pathogenesis of acute rejection following kidney transplantation, as well as the induction of transplant tolerance. This pathway may therefore be a useful target for therapy against acute rejection after kidney transplantation. PMID: 29352109 [PubMed - in process]

This article reports attrition, compliance, adherence, and progression from the strength training arm of the single-blind randomized, controlled trial Strength Training to Enhance Early Recovery (STEER). 
. METHODS: 37 patients were randomized to the intervention and participated in a structured strength training program introduced during hospitalization and continued for six weeks after release. Research staff and patients maintained exercise logs to document compliance, adherence, and progression. 
. FINDINGS: No patients left the study because of burden. Patients were compliant with completion of exercise ...

In conclusion, death is a natural part of human existence, but human progress is essentially a story of overcoming undesirable natural limits. In the near future, technological progress might make it possible to stop natural biological death. Should humankind embrace such technology? Yes: Even though such technology would not be without risks, the risks are almost certainly manageable. The benefits of ending natural death, on the other hand, are immense. Death is an obstacle that is slowing down human progress. If we remove that obstacle, humankind could increase the speed of both its moral and its epistemic progress. ...
