A cross-sectional comparison between cardiorespiratory fitness, level of lesion and red blood cell distribution width in adults with chronic spinal cord injury

Publication date: Available online 21 August 2019Source: Journal of Science and Medicine in SportAuthor(s): Tom E. Nightingale, Gurjeet S. Bhangu, James L.J. Bilzon, Andrei V. KrassioukovAbstractObjectivesTo assess; (1) differences in red blood cell distribution width between individuals with chronic (>1 year), motor-complete cervical (n = 21), upper-thoracic (n = 27) and thoracolumbar (n = 15) spinal cord injury and, (2) associations between red blood cell distribution width and cardiorespiratory fitness.DesignProspective multi-center, cross-sectional study.MethodsPeak oxygen uptake was determined using an upper-body arm-crank exercise test to volitional exhaustion and red blood cell distribution width was measured using an automated hematology system.ResultsThere were significant (p

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Mummolo S, Severino M, Campanella V, Barlattani A, Quinzi V, Marchetti E Abstract The aim of present study is to evaluate the greater risk of periodontal disease in subjects affected by cardiovascular disease. The statistical study includes 200 patients equally divided into a test and a control group. The test group is made up of hospitalized patients from the cardiology division of the S. Salvatore hospital of L'Aquila and the second made up of subjects that frequented a dental clinic. All patients were subject to anamnesis and clinical evaluation for periodontal disease. The index used...

DOX-induced oxidative stress and changes of the phosphoproteome as well as epigenome were described but the exact mechanisms of the adverse long-term effects are still elusive. Here, we tested the impact of DOX treatment on cell death, oxidative stress parameters and exp...

CONCLUSION: Blast related injuries of the hand during childhood are frequent and can cause different and complex defects. Besides prevention of these injuries, primary reconstruction of the affected hand is of outmost importance in preventing long-term consequences. PMID: 31537039 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcomes of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) performed after failed humeral head re...

The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of agomelatine against craniotomy induced brain injury. The craniotomy was performed by a variable speed micro-motor dental driller of 0.8 mm drill bit. The present study, in addition to blood-brain permeability, brain water content (edema) and histological examination of the brain, also estimated locomotor activity, oxidant, and antioxidant parameters. Results show that the craniotomy induced increase in the blood-brain barrier permeability, brain water content (edema), oxidative stress (lipid peroxide and nitric oxide) and impaired antioxidant mechanisms (superoxid...
