CONCLUSION: The economic burden of NVAF is important in Algeria, largely driven by untreated and INR-uncontrolled patients. There is a lack of information on the Algerian healthcare system that could increase uncertainty around this assessment, but it clearly establishes the importance of NVAF as a public health concern.

We examined how resting RSA and RSA withdrawal to stress predicted NSSI among young adults, and whether adaptive emotion regulation strategies moderated this effect. We examined this relation in a sample of 70 young adults (Mage = 19.25, SDage = 0.92, 94% female), 35 with a recent history of NSSI and 35 who had never engaged in NSSI. Participants completed a baseline questionnaire and lab visit where physiological responses to a social stressor were collected. Results indicated that resting RSA did not predict recent NSSI engagement. However, greater RSA withdrawal to social stress significantly predicted recent NS...

Conclusions: This is an effective and minimally invasive method to reduce the residual pleural space after lung resections. Narrowing of the pleural space facilitates the contact between the lung and the chest wall promoting the resolution of the air leak. Diaphragm paralysis is controlled and temporary with no residual disabilities. PMID: 30233862 [PubMed]

Authors: Zheng Y, Liu X, Zhang R, Wang Z, Sun H, Qin J, Liu S, Li Y Abstract Background: Although it was controversial for treating locally advanced resectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NACR) was more widely accepted rather than neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) worldwide. With the development of paclitaxel, a high response rate to NAC was reported in many studies. Our hypothesis is that lots of patients could get a response from NAC alone and avoid unnecessary NACR. Those who had no response from NAC could still response from the followed radiotherapy. We attempted to c...

ConclusionsFindings provide preliminary support that multiple facets of inflexibility may emerge from a broader overarching vulnerability for internalizing psychopathology. This overarching inflexibility construct may have stronger associations with depression than with anxious arousal.

Authors: Zhang Y, Zhang L, Zheng H, Chen H Abstract The effects of atrial fibrillation on complications and prognosis of patients receiving emergency percutaneous coronary intervention after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) were investigated. Eighty AMI patients treated with interventional vascular recanalization in the Affiliated Hospital of Weifang Medical University (Weifang, China) from July 2015 to October 2016 were selected, including 40 patients complicated with atrial fibrillation before operation (control group) and 40 patients without atrial fibrillation before operation (observation group). The systolic...

Authors: Zhang F, Cai L, Zhang J, Qi X, Lu C Abstract Pre-clinical evaluation of cardiac dysfunction is important for assessing the safety of traditional or novel medicines due to the universality of potential drug-induced heart failure and irreversible arrhythmia. Aconitine (ACO), a traditionally used anti-pyretic, analgesic and anti-rheumatic drug, has been reported to have arrhythmogenic effects. In the present study, the Real-Time Cellular Analysis Cardio system was applied to evaluate the arrhythmogenic effects of ACO in human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs). The results indica...

Conclusion: Component selection routines based on heartbeat detections are capable of reliably selecting cardiac signals after spatio-temporal BSS in case of severe motion artifacts and arrhythmia. Significance : The availability of robust cardiac component selectors for solving permutation indeterminacy facilitates the usage of spatio-temporal BSS to extra- t cardiac signals in artifact-sensitive minimum-contact vital signs monitoring techniques.

This report shows adaptation of a three-dimensional electroanatomic mapping system for intraoperative use in a small patient with Ebstein’s anomaly who was undergoing a cone procedure and a bidirectional Glenn procedure. Use of this technique gave clear identification of the epicardial insertion points of two accessory pathways causing Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and resistant episodes of supraventricular tachycardia. Successful three-dimensional mapping and cryoablation were performed with a short procedure time and no complications. The patient remains without preexcitation or arrhythmia 6 months postoperatively.
