Publication date: March–April 2018 Source:The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery, Volume 57, Issue 2 Author(s): Sugandhi Pugazhendhi, Arvind Prasanth Dorairaj Diabetic patients are more prone to the development of foot ulcers, because their underlying tissues are exposed to colonization by various pathogenic organisms. Hence, biofilm formation plays a vital role in disease progression by antibiotic resistance to the pathogen found in foot infections. The present study has demonstrated the correlation of biofilm assay with the clinical characteristics of diabetic foot infection. The clinical characteristics such as th...

Abstract The aim of this study is to produce the smart hydrogel to use insulin release for human body. p(HEMA-co-Eudragit L-100) hydrogels containing different ratios of 2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and Eudragait L-100 were synthesized by using ammonium persulfate (APS) as an initiator and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as a cross linker. The structures of hydrogels produced were characterized by using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis. In this way, optimum synthesis conditions were determined for p(HEMA-co-Eudragit L-100) hydrogels by usi...

Abstract AIMS: To describe optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) abnormalities of patients with pseudophakic cystoid macular oedema (PCMO) before and after pharmacological resolution, compared with diabetic macular oedema (DMO) and normal eyes. METHODS: In this retrospective, observational study, 44 eyes (30 patients) were included: 15 eyes (15 patients) affected by PCMO; 14 healthy fellow eyes used as negative control group; 15 eyes (15 age-matched and sex-matched patients) with DMO used as positive control group. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmological examination at baseline, includin...

J Neurol Surg B DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1625967Suprasellar tumors in particular tumors located in the retrochiasmatic area and anterior third ventricle are challenging cases in terms of optimal surgical exposure. Several approaches have been described including transsylvian, translamina terminalis, endoscopic endonasal, and anterior interhemispheric. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages. In this video, we present a case of retrochiasmatic anterior third ventricular tumor that was operated via anterior interhemispheric transcallosal transforaminal approach. The patient is a 42-year-old female who presented with sudden...

The lifetime cardiovascular risk of a diabetic patient is approximately 4 –5 times higher than that of an age and sex matched individual without diabetes mellitus. Despite the well-publicized cardiovascular risk equivalence of diabetes mellitus, it has become apparent that not all diabetic patients are equally at high-risk and many patients may have a level of risk simi lar to that of the general population. Cardiovascular imaging has been employed to address the dilemma of a more accurate risk stratification of diabetic patients.
