Enteral Nutrition in Pediatric High-risk Head and Neck Cancer Patients Receiving Proton Therapy: Identifying Risk Factors and Quality of Life Concerns to Optimize Care

Conclusions: Pediatric patients with head and neck cancer can be risk-stratified based on clinical and dosimetric factors. This data, combined with parent and patient perceptions, is key to the development of rational guidelines.

Abstract Objective: The main goal of our study was to assess the impact of vascular procedures on the activity of hemostatic and fibrinolytic pathways. Methods: We enrolled 38 patients with ≥ 45 years old undergoing surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm or peripheral artery disease under general or regional anesthesia and who were hospitalized at least one night after the procedure. Patients undergoing carotid artery surgery and those who had acute bypass graft thrombosis, cancer, renal failure defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate

Conclusion: KGMC index is best applicable to assess the osteoarthritis knee joint. Radiological progression in OA co-relates well with all clinical indices including KGMC index. This study highlights the usefulness of visual analogue scale and various radiological and clinical indices to assess osteoarthritis especially for knee joint. PMID: 31325259 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 22 July 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Shima BehkamiAbstractFruits and vegetables play an important role in human nutrition. Study of the contamination sources which result from farming activities is of importance. For this reason, a chitosan–graphene oxide nanocomposite film was prepared and implemented as the extractive phase in thin film microextraction of six organophosphate residues (OPPs) in the samples using high-performance liquid chromatography. The optimized method was validated and the limits of detection (0.7–1.2 µg l-1), limits of quantification (2.3&n...

Publication date: Available online 22 July 2019Source: Food BioscienceAuthor(s): Yang Hu, Chunhong Piao, Yue Chen, Yanan Zhou, Dan Wang, Hansong Yu, Baojun XuAbstractThe soybean residue (okara) with high moisture content has generally been discarded, which has led to economic loss and socio-environmental problems. The effects of solid state fermentation using Kluyveromyces marxianus on the nutritional components, beany odor and processing properties of soybean residue were studied. The results showed that K. marxianus fermented soybean residue (FSR) had an increase in crude fat (24.5%), soluble dietary fibers (158%) and po...

Conclusions: the mean percentages of lipids, monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids and sodium intake were higher among ultra-processed foods. It was observed that the older the maternal age of high-risk pregnant women, the lower the intake of total calories and percentages of carbohydrates and proteins from ultra-processed foods. It was also observed that pregestational nutritional status was significantly associated with the intake of total calories and percentage of carbohydrates from ultra-processed foods.Resumo Objetivos: relacionar o estado nutricional pr é-gestacional, a idade materna e o n&...

Authors: Aksu C, Gürkan Y Abstract Erector spinae plane block is gaining popularity both for its ease of application and as its comparable effect on postoperative analgesia with central regional techniques like paravertebral block or epidural anesthesia. Its use for many indications has been reported in the literature for pediatric patients. We would like to share our experiences in a 2.5-month infant scheduled for thoracotomy for a giant congenital cyst. Single shot erector spinae plane block was done at T4 level before the start of the surgery for both surgical and postoperative analgesia. No complication wa...
