Surgical Outcomes of Double Compression And Complete Fixation Bar System in Pectus Excavatum.

Surgical Outcomes of Double Compression And Complete Fixation Bar System in Pectus Excavatum. Ann Thorac Surg. 2018 Jun 08;: Authors: Song IH, Lee SJ, Kim SS, Lee SY Abstract BACKGROUND: Minimaly invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE) is a widely used technique for correction of pectus excavatum. Yet despite the advancement in the surgical techniques, it is still associated with various complications including bar displacement leading to reoperation. To overcome this problem, we developed the double compression and complete fixation-double bar (DCCF) system which consists of two metal bars that are inserted above and below the sternum and compressed to correct pectus excavatum. METHODS: Patients who underwent pectus excavatum correction surgery at this center between April 2006 and March 2017 were divided into the DCCF system group and the conventional Nuss procedure group and their demographic, clinical and surgical characteristics were compared. RESULTS: A total of 220 underwent DCCF system procedure, and 306 patients underwent conventional Nuss procedure. The DCCF system group had significantly shorter operation time (p

The importance of the microbiome for psychological well-being has gained rising interest in the last decade. A strategy to examine the role of the microbiome in different diseases is the intake of supplements that modulate the gut microbiome. Despite promising results in animal studies, research in humans is sparse to date and especially in individuals with psychiatric disorders almost missing. The current report of the ProbioBIP-one pilot study aims at describing general effects of the intake of the probiotic OMNi-BiOTiC Stress repair ® on psychological parameters as well as gastrointestinal symptoms and general compl...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that the single-ProGlide/Glubran technique is a safe and cost-effective method of closing the arterial access site after transfemoral TAVI and TAAR. The results of the study could be considered hypothesis generating and needs to be confirmed in a randomized controlled trial before being adopted in clinical practice.

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate whether the berberine treatment can improve endothelial repair capacity of early endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) from prehypertensive subjects through increasing CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) signaling.MethodsEPCs were isolated from prehypertensive and healthy subjects and cultured.In vivo reendothelialization capacity of EPCs from prehypertensive patients with or withoutin vitro berberine treatment was examined in a nude mouse model of carotid artery injury. The protein expressions of CXCR4/Janus kinase-2 (JAK-2) signaling ofin vitro EPCs were detected by Western blot analysis.ResultsCX...

AbstractEach year, thousands of patients are at risk of cerebral ischemic injury, due to iatrogenic responses to surgical procedures. Prophylactic treatment of these patients as standard care could minimize potential neurological complications. We have shown that protection of brain tissue, in a non-human primate model of cerebral ischemic injury, is possible through pharmacological preconditioning using the immune activator D192935. We postulate that preconditioning with D192935 results in neuroprotective reprogramming that is evident in the brain following experimentally induced cerebral ischemia. We performed quantitati...
