This study aims to investigate the effect and molecular mechanism of HSE on wound healing of diabetic mice. Diabetic db/db mice were operated with full-thickness excision, with wound treated externally by HSE. The results showed that HSE reduces the wound area on days 7 and 14; Compared with the model group on day 10, the local blood flow of the wound of HSE group was significantly increased according to Doppler ultrasound imaging.

CONCLUSION: Cannulation trauma at the initiation of haemodialysis could potentially be reduced with a strategy of incremental haemodialysis using single-needle treatment supported with duplex ultrasonography assessment to 'map' the vascular access as a guide for clinicians prior to cannulation initiation.

Amer J Perinatol DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1695011 Objective Prior studies suggest knowledge of estimated fetal weight (EFW), particularly by ultrasound (US), increases the risk for cesarean delivery. These same studies suggest that concern for macrosomia potentially alters labor management leading to increased rates of cesarean delivery. We aimed to assess if shortened labor management, as a result of suspected macrosomia (≥4,000 g), leads to an increased rate of cesarean delivery. Study Design This is a secondary analysis of a retrospective cohort study at a single tertiary center in 2015 of women wit...

America is going gray. According to U.S. Census data, in 2030 even the youngest Baby Boomers will have reached 65, and older Americans will make up 21 percent of the population. That’s up from 15 percent today. By 2060, nearly a quarter of Americans will be at least 65 and a half million will reach age 100. These changing demographics give urgency to the concept of “aging in place.” Nobody wants to lose their independence, but that’s the reality for many who are forced from their homes by cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes or other chron...

Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...

CONCLUSION: Because the predictive accuracy of ultrasound prediction of birth weight improves with gestational age, fetal growth assessment at term is recommended to aid with delivery planning in women with diabetes. PMID: 31405599 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Concept Medical just received a huge burst of speed in its quest to get its drug-coated balloon for the treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) commercially available in the U.S. The Tampa, FL-based company has received breakthrough device designation from FDA for the MagicTouch PTA, a Sirolimus drug-coated balloon (DCB) catheter, for the treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) in Below-the-Knee (BTK). So far, Concept Medical said MagicTouch has been performing extremely well. In the XTOSI pilot study, the majority of patients enrolled had major comorbidities (diabetes and end-stage renal failure) and the indicat...

AbstractBackgroundHypothyroidism with impairment of renal function and raised creatinine phosphokinase (CPK) is described in adults and children with acquired hypothyroidism, but not in congenital hypothyroidism.Case presentationA male infant born at term weighing 3390  g was seen aged 2 months with prolonged jaundice. Examination showed somnolence, umbilical hernia, enlarged fontanelles and lower limb edema; length 55 cm (−1.5 SD), weight 5.4 kg (−0.13 SD). Biochemistry showed fT4

Conclusions Ultrasound enables identification of specific early diaphragm atrophy that affects the majority of mechanically ventilated patients and septic shock patients. Diaphragm atrophy and pectoral muscle atrophy seem to be two unrelated processes.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of antidiabetic and antitumor activities of polysaccharides from Taxus cuspidata branches and leaves (TCBL) and to determine the optimum extraction technology of TCBL using a low-temperature and high-efficiency enzyme and ultrasound-assisted coupled extraction (EUCE) method. Optimal technology parameters were determined as follows: an extraction temperature of 51 °C, an extraction time of 33 min, a ratio of material to liquid of 1:19 (g:mL), and an enzyme concentration of 0.10 mg·mL−1. Under the optimized conditions, the polysaccharide yiel...
