CONCLUSIONS: Afro-Caribbean populations in French West Indies share the same major clinical and pathological risk factors of BCR after RP identified in other ethnic groups. Perioperative blood loss appears to be an additional and independent predictive factor of BCR. LEVEL OF PROOF: 4. PMID: 29789237 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we developed innovative nanoparticles for oral and liver-targeted delivery of insulin by using enterohepatic circulation of bile acids. The nanoparticles were produced from cholic acid and quaternary ammonium modified chitosan derivative and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose phthalate (HPMCP). The nanoparticles had a diameter of 239 nm, an insulin loading efficiency of 90.9%, and a loading capacity of 18.2%. Cell culture studies revealed that the cholic acid groups effectively enhanced the transport of the nanoparticles through Caco-2 cell monolayer and greatly increased the absorption of the nanoparticle...

Authors: Prijić R, Premužić V, Brinar M, Krznarić Ž, Jelaković B, Čuković-Čavka S Abstract PURPOSE: Chronic inflammatory diseases are related with earlier onset of atherosclerosis. We hypothesized that inflammatory bowel disease patients with chronic, systemic inflammation have an increased arterial stiffness associated with the disease duration. Also, we wanted to compare arterial stiffness markers between inflammatory bowel disease and well-controlled hypertension patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 89 inflammatory bowel disease patients (60 patients with Crohn's disease and 29 patients with ...

This study revealed that in addition to overnight hypoglycemia, CGMS can uncover previously undetected, subclinical, low glucose levels during daytime hours. Additionally, the CGMS detected daytime and overnight hyperglycemia, an often overlooked concern in liver GSDs. The CGMS with concurrent dietary adjustments made by a metabolic dietitian improved metabolic parameters and stabilized blood glucose levels. The CGMS was found to be a safe, effective, an d reliable method for optimizing treatment in patients with GSD I, III, and IX.

We report the application of a free vascularized medial femoral condyle flap to prevent the recurrence of pressure ulcer in a patient with diabetic foot syndrome. Our patient had type 2 diabetes and presented with pressure ulcers and osteomyelitis of metatarsal heads 2 and 3 after a great toe amputation. We chose to use a medial femoral condyle flap as a damper in the area of the metatarsal heads because of the relatively young age and good vascularity of our patient. We shaped the graft like a ski to distribute the pressure and prevent perforation of the plantar skin. Good results were achieved for wound healing, pain red...
