BartoloméAbstractThis paper studies the tribological performance of two phosphonium cation-based ionic liquids: trihexyltetradecylphosphonium bis(2,4,4-trimethylpentyl) phosphinate ([P6,6,6,14][(iC8)2PO2]) and trihexyltetradecylphosphonium bis(2-ethylhexyl) phosphate ([P6,6,6,14][BEHP]), as lubricant additive at 1 wt% to a polyalphaolefin. A comparison of their tribological behavior was made to that of one type ...

Uppin, Swati Mohapatra, Robert D.S. Pitceathly, Kumarasamy ThangarajAbstractMutations in the mitochondrial DNA maintenance gene POLG (DNA Polymerase Gamma, Catalytic Subunit), encoding mitochondrial DNA polymerase gamma (pol γ), are associated with an extremely broad phenotypic spectrum. We identified homozygous POLG c.1879C>T; p.R627W mutations in two siblings from a consanguineous South Asian family following targeted resequencing of 75 nuclear-en...

Central neuropathic pain can be difficult to treat and, subsequently, cause a great amount of disability and distress to patients, which limits quality of life. Common etiologies include the following: stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, infection, vasculitis, and malignancy. This case is a description of an 18-yr-old male patient diagnosed with a grade IV diffuse glioma who experienced severe neuropathic pain refractory to first-line treatment options including the following: gabapentinoids, tricyclic antidepressants, and selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. The patient remained on high-...

Conclusions Prevalence of select lifestyle risk behaviors exceeds 50% in adults with stroke but is higher in adults with diabetes compared with adults without diabetes. Effective interventions, community programs, and healthcare policy are needed to promote lifestyle management in adults with stroke, particularly among those with diabetes.

Impairments in ankle joint position sense along with muscle weakness greatly affect the recovery of balance among stroke survivors. Elastic therapeutic taping has been studied in musculoskeletal conditions of the ankle to improve joint position sense and its effects in stroke are not known. The aims of the study were to investigate the differences in joint position sense between paretic and nonparetic ankles and to examine the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on joint position sense of the paretic ankle in stroke survivors. Sixteen chronic stroke survivors participated in a 2-day protocol of ankle elastic therapeutic ...

Authors: Duzen IV, Oguz E, Cekici Y, Yavuz F, Vuruskan E, Sincer I, Poyraz F, Alıcı H, Yuksek U, Demirtas AO, Sucu M Abstract New-generation oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are now preferred as a first-line treatment in the management of atrial fibrillation for prevention of thromboembolic complications. Mean platelet volume (MPV), one of the indicators of increased platelet activity, is also associated with an increased stroke risk in atrial fibrillation patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in MPV, platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit following use of NOACs. The study included 1...

Authors: Seeger J, Romero M, Schuh C, Virmani R, Wöhrle J Abstract BACKGROUND: Use of the dual-filter cerebral embolic protection (CEP) device has been linked to a lower stroke rate in patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Captured debris is found in almost every filter. The impact of repositioning on number and area of captured debris has not been studied. METHODS: Consecutive patients (n = 200) undergoing transfemoral TAVR with double-filter CEP device were included. A total of 400 filters were analyzed. Histopathologic assessment and histomorphometric analyses o...
