Spiritual well-being and hope in the preoperative period of cardiac surgery.

CONCLUSION: Nurses should develop a watchful eye to these issues, be trained in specific protocols of spiritual anamnese and use the real moments of care to strengthen the patients. PMID: 29412299 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2018Source: Ticks and Tick-borne DiseasesAuthor(s): Awa Diop, Didier Raoult, Pierre-Edouard FournierAbstractRickettsia species are strictly intracellular bacteria that evolved approximately 150 million years ago from a presumably free-living common ancestor from the order Rickettsiales that followed a transition to an obligate intracellular lifestyle. Rickettsiae are best known as human pathogens vectored by various arthropods causing a range of mild to severe human diseases. As part of their obligate intracellular lifestyle, rickettsial genomes have undergone a convergent evo...

Publication date: Available online 13 November 2018Source: Radiation Physics and ChemistryAuthor(s): Oyeon KumAbstractIn high-energy heavy-ion medical accelerator facility, the induced activity due to primary and secondary interactions of the lost beams is the most concerned issue in view point of nuclear safety because long-lived radioactive nuclides cause problems of radiation exposure for staff involved in the repair or maintenance work and in decommissioning the facility. This paper presents activation of a thick magnetic septum by modelling the copper coils which are heavily showered by the lost carbon ion beams with ...

AbstractPurposeUmbilical hernias are common in young children. Many resolve spontaneously by age four with very low risk of symptoms or incarceration. Complications associated with surgical repair of asymptomatic umbilical hernias have not been well elucidated. We analyzed data from one hospital to test the hypothesis that repair at younger ages is associated with increased complication rates.MethodsA retrospective chart review of all umbilical hernia repairs performed during 2007 –2015 was conducted at a tertiary care children’s hospital. Patients undergoing repairs as a single procedure for asymptomatic herni...

AbstractChondrosphere (Spherox) is a form of autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). It is licensed for repair of symptomatic articular cartilage defects of the femoral condyle and the patella of the knee with defect sizes up to 10  cm2 in adults. In a single technology appraisal (STA) [TA508] undertaken by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Warwick Evidence was the Evidence Review Group (ERG) invited to independently review the evidence submitted by the manufacturer, Co.Don. The clinical effectiveness data came from their COWISI randomised controlled trial (RCT), which compared Chondrosph...

Authors: Rupp M, Mouhri ZS, Williams C, Jean-Claude BJ Abstract Disordered expression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has been associated with induction of DNA repair genes (e.g. XRCC1, ERCC1) and resistance to radiation and genotoxic drugs. However, our previous work showed that EGFR inhibition did not affect O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT)-mediated resistance. In order to block uncoupled events associated with EGFR and MGMT, we designed MR30, a single molecule termed "combi-molecule" that contains a quinazoline arm targeted to EGFR and an O6-benzylguanine (O6-BG) moiety to b...

Authors: Burgos-Morón E, Calderón-Montaño JM, Pastor N, Höglund A, Ruiz-Castizo Á, Domínguez I, López-Lázaro M, Hajji N, Helleday T, Mateos S, Orta ML Abstract The Cockayne Syndrome Protein B (CSB) plays an essential role in Transcription-Coupled Nucleotide Excision Repair (TC-NER) by recruiting repair proteins once transcription is blocked with a DNA lesion. In fact, CSB-deficient cells are unable to recover from transcription-blocking DNA lesions. 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-azadC) is a nucleoside analogue that covalently traps DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) ont...

The whole field of endovascular repair and intervention has grown exponentially since the first endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR) was performed by Dr. Juan Parodi in 1990, but it took quite some time to be accepted as a standard of care. Today the endovascular approach is the preferred procedure to repair an AAA and this is because of the advances in medical device design and manufacturing and the dedication of physicians to this less invasive non-surgical approach, physicians who will be attending this year ’s Veith Symposium.

Know your triggers A major part of a successful recovery process is knowing what your triggers are. During the holidays, it can be a time that they present themselves more often than not. It can also be time when new triggers can arise that you didn’t realize you had before. It’s important to sit down and make a list of all the triggers that you think may pop up, and come up with a plan for each of them. This will give you better confidence for handling the situation when it pops up, and you will be able to move past it successfully with your newly-honed coping skills. Common holiday triggers Traveling Pressur...

Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) is collaborating with researchers at the Children’s National Health System to develop a miniature pacemaker intended for use with infants. The prototype version of the device was presented at the American Heart Association’s 2018 Scientific Sessions by Dr. Rohan Kumthekar of the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, part of the Children’s National Health System. The newly developed miniature pacer is designed to be implanted through a 1 cm incision just below the ribcage, eliminating the need for open-chest surgery, according to a CNHS report. The device is im...

Conclusion: Within the overall goal to establish operating procedures for breast cancer immunotherapy, we propose to re-evaluate testing for deficient mismatch repair and to further intensify the search for biomarkers predictive for the success of immune checkpoint modulation including all tumor biologic subtypes of breast cancer.Breast Care
