A Drain-free Technique for Female-to-Male Gender Affirmation Chest Surgery Decreases Morbidity: Outcomes From 306 Consecutive Masculoplasties

Conclusions Gender affirmation chest surgery can be safely offered using a drain-free or “masculoplasty” technique. Compared with historical data, the use of progressive tension sutures decreases the incidence of hematoma, the need for acute reoperation, and other complications.

ConclusionsRemission of type 2 diabetes 5 years after bariatric surgery was associated with improvements in albuminuria and stabilized prognostic risk for CKD, but not with eGFR. Lower kidney function and greater prognostic risk at the time of bariatric surgery was linked to a lower likelihood of diabetes remission. These results highlight the need to identify the mechanisms through which bariatric surgery may delay the long-term progression of CKD in type 2 diabetes.

We assessed the quantification of liver steatosis using four different MR methods, in order to determine the one that is best correlated with the reference method which consists of histologica...

CONCLUSIONS: Steroid receptor coactivators are critical regulators of human metabolism with pleiotropic and tissue-specific actions. We believe that our study will contribute to the better understanding of the complex multi-tissue interactions that are disrupted in obesity and can therefore lead in numerous cardiometabolic diseases. Further on, present findings suggest that SRC-3/AIB-1 could constitute possible future drug targets. PMID: 31322077 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hamouda L, Miliani M, Hadjidj Z, Messali R, Aribi M Abstract BACKGROUND: Monocytes are the main blood innate mononuclear phagocyte and one of the most important effector cells expressing Fcγ receptor, which is critical for the interaction with Fc domain of antibodies. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of Rituximab (RTX, a chimeric human anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody) on the functional activities of Monocytes (MOs) at the onset of human Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). METHODS: MOs were isolated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) obtained from volunteer patients with recent-onset T1D and he...

Authors: Wykretowicz M, Katulska K, Zwanzig M, Krauze T, Piskorski J, Guzik P, Wykretowicz A Abstract OBJECTIVES: Left atrial fibrosis represents a substrate for atrial fibrillation (AF) and cardioembolic events. White matter hyperintensities (WMH) are commonly found on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and are regarded, at least partly as ischemic brain lesions. Aortic excess pressure (excessPTI) represents an extra work performed by the left ventricle and is a new risk metric associated with cardiovascular complications. The aim of our study was to assessed whether there is a correlation between the degree of LA f...

The experimental groups included sham, control, 0.1 mM cysteine treatment, and 0.2 mM cysteine treatment. Behavioral assessment, fasting glucose, lipid peroxidation, glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, and catalase activities, as well as reduced GSH, tumor necrosis factor (TNF), -α, interleukin-6 (IL-6), inte...

Abstract Background Obesity is a limiting factor for the use of bilateral internal mammary arteries (BIMAs). Therefore, we assessed the safety of their use in different degrees of obesity. Patients and Methods We studied two groups of patients with obesity using propensity matching. The first group received single internal mammary artery and saphenous vein grafts (SIMA group, 526 patients) and the second group received bilateral internal mammary arteries (BIMA group, 526 patients). Patients were classified further according to their body mass index (BMI) into overweight (BMI = 25-29.9 kg/m(...
