D’Lima, Sang Hak LeeAbstractPurposeSome reports have noted favorable long-term clinical results with milder postoperative arthritic changes after total meniscectomy in symptomatic patients with torn discoid lateral meniscus (DLM). This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the clinical and radiographic results between partial and total meniscectomy in patients with symptomatic DLM.MethodsStudies were included in the meta-analysis if (1) they analysed patients who underwent ar...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the change over time in the number of alternative surgical procedures (meniscectomy and meniscus repair) and regional variation in France using data from the French agency for information on hospital care (ATIH).HypothesisWe hypothesized that the number of meniscectomy procedures will decrease, and the number of repair procedures will increase over time at various healthcare facilities.Patients and methodsBetween 2005 and 2017, the number of hospitalizations in the Medicine-Surgery-Obstetrics wards for meniscectomy (NFFC003 and NFCC004) or meniscus repair (NFEC001 and NFEC002) wa...

This study aimed to evaluate the therapeutic effect of folic acid (FA) on diabetic retinopathy (DR) in a genetic mouse model of obese type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). C57BL/KsJ-db/db(db/db) T2D mice were divided into control, FA, metformin (MET), and FA plus MET groups (n = 10/group). Serum levels of glucose, glycated hemoglobin, and insulin were determined weekly. The retinal thickness was measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 4 weeks after treatments. The retinal expression and serum levels of vascular formation, inflammation, and oxidative stress-associated molecules were examined. Our results demonstrated...

Conclusions: Eyes from diabetic patients in the initial stages of DR with different Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study gradings show similar prevalence of SCME and CIME, independent of the severity of the retinopathy. Retinal edema is located mainly in the INL and appears to be mostly extracellular except in the earliest stages of diabetic retinal disease where intracellular edema predominates.Ophthalmic Res

This study aimed to investigate the effect of stevioside on fatty liver. Rats with hyperlipidemic fatty liver were treated with 75–150 mg/kg stevioside for 6 weeks. After oral administration of stevioside, the levels of serum and hepatic lipids and degree of hepatic steatosis were decreased. Stevioside treatment increased the expressions of hepatic peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)α and carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1A proteins and decreased the expressions of hepatic sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1c, fatty acid synthase and diacylglycerol acyltransferase proteins. Following tre...
