Sulfur Hexafluoride 20% Versus Air 100% for Anterior Chamber Tamponade in DMEK: A Meta-Analysis

Conclusions: In DMEK, 20% SF6 tamponade and longer postoperative time supine were associated with 58% fewer rebubbling procedures, and an ECL not statistically different from using 100% air.

RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar as respostas fisiol ógicas e do sistema nervoso autônomo de recém-nascidos prematuros ao posicionamento do corpo e ruídos ambientais na unidade de terapia intensiva neonatal. Métodos: Este foi um estudo quasi-experimental. O sistema nervoso autônomo de recém-nascidos foi avaliado com base na variabilidade da fr equência cardíaca quando os recém-nascidos foram expostos ao ruído ambiental e colocados em diferentes posições: supina sem suporte, supina com restrição manual e prona. Resultados: Cinquent...

Purpose of review Myotonic dystrophy type 1 is a multisystemic disorder caused by a noncoding triplet repeat. The age of onset is variable across the lifespan, but in its most severe form, the symptoms appear at birth (congenital myotonic dystrophy) or in the pediatric age range (childhood-onset myotonic dystrophy). These children have a range of disabilities that reduce the lifespan and cause significant morbidity. Currently, there are no agreed upon recommendations for caring for these children. Recent findings The Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation recruited 11 international clinicians who are experienced with congenital an...

This report demonstrates the variable cardiac rhythm in two species of subterranean mole, the large Japanese mole (Mogera wogura) and the lesser Japanese mole (Mogera imaizumii). The phenomenon was revealed using X-ray videos ofM. wogura and investigated in detail using electrocardiogram (ECG) traces recorded with implanted electrodes in this species andM. imaizumii. Cessation of heartbeat and extendedR–R intervals were observed in the ECGs from both species during short bouts of rest in wakeful specimens of both species under normoxic conditions at room temperature. The mean durations ofR–R intervals were 288....

Fuchs uveitis syndrome (FUS) is a chronic, typically unilateral, ocular condition characterized by an asymptomatic mild inflammatory syndrome that can result in cataract and secondary glaucoma. Diagnosis is largely clinical because the etiology remains obscure. FUS is most likely the result of different insults or pathogenic mechanisms, including infections, autoimmune diseases, hereditary and sympathetic dysfunction. According to the infectious theory, the infection of herpes simplex virus, ocular toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, rubella virus, and other viruses have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease.

Authors: Toraih EA, Ameen HM, Hussein MH, Youssef Elabd AA, Mohamed AM, Abdel-Gawad AR, Fawzy MS Abstract Alopecia areata (AA) is a non-scarring hair loss of autoimmune etiology. The autoimmune regulator (AIRE) gene is believed to be an important driver in AA pathogenesis. Genetic variants can alter mRNA expression levels which may provoke an autoimmune response. A total of 337 males (97 AA patients and 240 controls) were enrolled in the current case-control study. On screening of the most frequent variants in the gene, rs2075876 (A/G) polymorphism in intron 5 was selected and genotyped using Real-Time PCR (polymer...

The sympathetic nervous system participates significantly in the regulation of immune functions. In support of this, data indicate that besides vagal afferent and efferent pathway, sympathetic nerves represent crucial component of inflammatory reflex. In addition, it was shown that efferent arm of this reflex might be activated by ACTH. Therefore, we investigated the effect of chemical sympathectomy on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced increases in plasma IL-1 β, IL-6, and TNF-α levels in rats. Plasma IL-10 and corticosterone levels were also evaluated.
