This study assessed the effect of residual pain, age, sex, diabetes, hypertension, and depression on changes and status at one-year following arthroplasty with respect to shoulder function and overall physical and mental health status. Methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective cohort of 140 patients tested preoperatively and one-year following shoulder arthroplasty was conducted at our tertiary hospital. Pearson's correlations and multiple regression analysis were performed to test the impact of predictors on shoulder pain and function assessed using the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (ASES) questionnaire...

Authors: Shah AS, Kalish LA, Bae DS, Peljovich AE, Cornwall R, Bauer AS, Waters PM, Treatment and Outcomes of Brachial Plexus Injuries (TOBI) Study Group Abstract Background: Microsurgical reconstruction is indicated for infants with brachial plexus birth palsy (BPBP) that demonstrate limited spontaneous neurological recovery. This investigation defines the demographic, perinatal, and physical examination characteristics leading to microsurgical reconstruction. Methods: Infants enrolled in a prospective multicenter investigation of BPBP were evaluated. Microsurgery was performed at the discretion of the treatin...

Authors: Levine B, Caccavallo P, Springer B, Meneghini RM Abstract In the current healthcare environment, the postoperative treatment of patients who undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is critical to successful outcomes, patient satisfaction, and controlling costs. Preemptive analgesia and the avoidance of excessive narcotics may help improve the outcomes and satisfaction of patients who undergo TKA because it allows for a more rapid rehabilitation program and reduces overall pain. Various techniques can be used to minimize the postoperative pain routinely observed in these patients. In addition, appropriate pos...

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.

Authors: Kerr A, Wells S, Moffitt A, Lund M, Kreichbaum J, Harwood M, Jackson R Abstract There is a strong body of evidence that supports identifying and managing people according to their risk of a future cardiovascular (CVD) event. Since 2012 the New Zealand public health sector has achieved 90% CVD risk assessment (CVDRA) for each eligible person across New Zealand using a modified version of an overseas risk equation, through incentivising Primary Health Organisation (PHO) performance. In 2018 the New Zealand Ministry of Health endorsed the use of a suite of four new CVDRA equations which were developed using t...

Authors: Wang TKM, Liao YB, Choi D, Harmos S, Haydcok D, Gerber I Abstract AIMS: A significant minority of patients undergoing mitral valve surgery (MVR) have indication for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The risks of combination surgeries are not well appreciated and maybe more than additive. We compared the characteristics and outcomes of MVR+/-CABG performed at our centre. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing isolated MVR or with concurrent (MVR+)CABG at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 were compared for baseline and operative characteristics and outcomes in univariable and multivariable ...

Abstract Due to its capability for high-throughput screening 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is commonly used for metabolite research. The key problem in 1H NMR spectroscopy of multicomponent mixtures is overlapping of component signals and that is increasing with the number of components, their complexity and structural similarity. It makes metabolic profiling, that is carried out through matching acquired spectra with metabolites from the library, a hard problem. Here, we propose a method for nonlinear blind separation of highly correlated components spectra from a single 1H NMR mixture spectra....

The determination of α-glucosidase activity through a nano fluorescent sensor of F-PDA-CoOOH. Anal Chim Acta. 2019 Nov 08;1080:170-177 Authors: Zhang H, Wang Z, Yang X, Li ZL, Sun L, Ma J, Jiang H Abstract A sensitive nanocomplex probe prepared from fluorescent polydopamine nanoparticles (F-PDA) and cobalt oxyhydroxide (CoOOH) nanosheets was established for the determination of α-glucosidase activity. In this detection system, the fluorescence of F-PDA was firstly quenched by CoOOH nanosheets based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET). Subsequently, ascorbic acid was produced f...

PC-1 NF suppresses high glucose-stimulated inflammation and extracellular matrix accumulation in glomerular mesangial cells via the Wnt/β-catenin signaling. Exp Ther Med. 2019 Sep;18(3):2029-2036 Authors: Xiao L, Chen Y, Yuan Y, Xu B, Gao Q, Chen P, Zhang T, Guan T Abstract Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease worldwide with high morbidity and mortality. Glomerular mesangial cell (MC) proliferation, inflammatory cell infiltration and extracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation are the main pathological characteristics of DN. A previous study revealed that polycysti...
