This study quantified the metabolic and physiological responses towards a range of scootering speeds in a field-setting.MethodsTen participants (eight male, two female; mean ± standard deviation [SD] age: 21 ± 1 years; peak oxygen uptake [V̇O2peak]: 51.5 ± 6.0 mL/kg/min) completed a cycling V̇O2peak test and a 30-min scootering protocol. Energy expenditure (EE), metabolic equivalents (METs) and heart rate (HR) were recorded throughout.ResultsMean ± SD EE and METs increased (P

Publication date: June 2019Source: Journal of Transport &Health, Volume 13Author(s): Deepika Kandasamy, Kayla Williamson, David B. Carr, Diana Abbott, Marian E. BetzAbstractObjectivesWith age, older adults (≥65 years) become increasingly vulnerable to cognitive disorders that may impair driving ability. Health practitioners are often tasked with screening older drivers and may recommend fitness to drive (FTD) evaluations for those potentially needing driving rehabilitation or cessation. Here, we examine whether the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), which mainly tests cognitive ability, may identify older adults ...

In this report, we have presented the case of a patient with a left upper back pain. The CT scan showed multiple irregular filling defects in the upper left ureter and the left renal pelvis. During the ureteroscopy, multiple yellow cystic lesions were seen in the proximal part of the left ureter and in the renal pelvis.The pathology report described cystic structures coated with single line cubic metaplastic epithelium. Ureteritis cystica should be considered in a differential diagnosis, in case of atypical radiological findings. No active treatment is required when confirmed.

We report the case of a 53 year-old male presenting with hematuria, pain and induration of the penis 2 and half years after the diagnosis of left colon cancer. CT scan demonstrated involvement of the corpus spongiosum and corpora cavernosa with enlarged external inguinal lymph nodes and asymptomatic metastasis in the liver and lungs.The finding of a penile lesion in a cancer patient is an alarming sign and should indicate a disseminated disease. The prognosis of penile metastasis is poor.

In the computed tomography appears a mass of 100 × 80 mm at the minor pelvis. Mass resection, radical cystoprostatectomy and ileal conduit diversion were done.A Solitary Fibrous Tumor of the urinary bladder was diagnosed. CD 34 (+).Surgical resect...

RossAbstractThe United States is currently facing an epidemic of opioid-related deaths, increasingly associated with fentanyl use. Our objective was to characterize rates of fentanyl, general opioid and non-opioid pain medication prescription at a national level in both outpatient and emergency department settings. We used a retrospective cross-sectional research design using data from the 2006–2015 National Ambulatory Medical Care Surveys and National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Surv...

GollustAbstractThe American Cancer Society and the U.S. Preventive Task Force recently recommended that women initiate routine breast cancer screening at older ages (45 and 50, respectively) than previously recommended, and both organizations emphasize the importance of weighing the harms of mammograms against the benefits in making informed decisions. However, little is known from national samples about how women perceive the harms and benefits of mammograms, and how these pe...

Authors: Lougiaki P, Tsolaki M, Pantazaki A Abstract Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of the stroke and most neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. The multi-cell neurovascular unit (NVU) combines the components of the neural, vascular and extracellular matrix (ECM) into an important interface whose proper function is critical to maintaining brain health. Tissue engineering now offers new tools and information to promote understanding of NVU's operation. A promising area for the development of NVU models is their bio-production through 3D bio-printing to produce...

Authors: Tzekaki E, Tsolaki M, Pantazaki A Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a serious neurodegenerative disorder that manifests itself as progressive damage to memory and knowledge and is the main cause of dementia in the elderly. AD is characterized by extracellular deposition of amyloid-β plate (Aβ) and by the formation of neurofibrillary tangles, composed of hyperphosphorylated Tau protein. These modifications lead to neuronal cell death, vascular dysfunction and inflammatory disorders. Described as "elderly disease", AD is an escalating threat to developed countries as life expectancy is...

Authors: Liakakis G Abstract Subcortical small-vessel disease (SSVD) is a disorder that has been fully described in clinical, neuropathological and imaging aspects. It is considered as the most prevalent ischemic CNS disorder and has been associated to arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and obstructive sleep apnea. The hallmark of SSVD is the ischemic white matter lesions which can be presented as lacunar infracts and global brain hypoperfusion in a common and homogeneous subtype of vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) which is often unrecognized. The special nature and course of SSVD offers the ...
