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

In this study, we reported a dual HDAC and DNMT inhibitor 208 and found it induced G1 cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in U937 cells. Proteome and bioinformatic analyses revealed that the combined inhibition of DNMT1 and HDAC by 208 affected the expression of a series of proteins involved in many biological processes. We observed that several proteins associated with G1 cell cycle arrest and apoptosis were down regulated after 208 treatment, including p85α, MEK, and CDK4, suggesting that 208 induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis through the p85α/MEK-mediated pathway in U937 cells. Moreover, biological function...

MoraesAbstractPhotobiomodulation (PBM) therapy is based on the use of specific light parameters to promote tissue repair. Although demonstrated in different cell models and tissues, the mechanism by which photobiomodulation operates is not well understood. Previous studies suggested that the cell proliferation enhancement triggered by red and near-infrared PBM invo...

The objective of this study was to verify the relationship between metachronous contralateral inguinal hernia (MCIH) and CPPV, and the risk factors of MCIH.MethodsChildren with unilateral inguinal hernia from three medical centers underwent either open or laparoscopic repairs. Clinical information, including demographics, morphological characteristics of CPPV, follow-up outcomes were collected.ResultsAmong 2942 patients (92.2%) who received open repair with successful follow-up, 185 (6.29%) developed MCIHs [125 (10.9%) on the right side and 60 (3.3%)] on the left including 156 (7.07%) younger than 3 years old and 29 (3.94%...

Conclusion: The use of bioprosthetic plugs to treat patients with complex anal fistulae seems to be a safe, viable option for complex fistula repair when other surgical attempts have failed. However, it should not be the treatment of choice. Further prospective randomized studies with a sufficient sample-size and standardized measurements are necessary to evaluate the efficacy of fistula plugs fully.

Authors: de Miranda JR, Choi IGG, Moreira MS, Martins MD, Cortes ARG, Yoshimoto M Abstract PURPOSE: This histologic study aimed at assessing bone healing after treatment with simvastatin in association with low-level laser therapy (LLLT). METHODS: Twenty-four male rats (Wistar) were submitted to surgery to create a bone defect of 5 mm in diameter in the parietal bone. These rats were randomly and equally divided into four treatment groups (n = 6): control (C), in which no treatment was performed; simvastatin (SIM), in which rats received daily subcutaneous doses of 2.5 mg/kg of simvastatin; LLLT, which was dail...
