The effect of omega-3 and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

The effect of omega-3 and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Int J Vitam Nutr Res. 2019 Aug 23;:1-11 Authors: Moosavian SP, Arab A, Mehrabani S, Moradi S, Nasirian M Abstract Background: Several studies have investigated the effect of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation, but their findings are inconsistent. The aim of this meta-analysis is to elucidate the overall effects of co-supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation. Methods: We searched titles, abstracts, and keywords of relevant articles indexed in PubMed, ISI, Scopus, and Google Scholar databases up to December 2018 to identify eligible RCT studies. Random effects model was used to estimate the pooled effect of co-supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation. Results: Overall, 7 RCTs with 504 participants were included in this meta-analysis. We found that co-supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E decreased hs-CRP (weighed mean difference (WMD) = -2.15 mg/L; 95% CI: -3.40, -0.91 mg/L; P

The objective was to show the contemporary short-term outcome of the Fontan operation for a functionally univentricular heart in patients with DS and non-DS, along with an analysis of significant predictors for in-hospital mortality.MethodsThis was a retrospective study using the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Database to assess in-hospital mortality and its predictors in patients with DS and non-DS undergoing the Fontan operation over 16 years (2001-2016). The primary outcome was in-hospital mortality. Statistical analysis was performed using univariable and multivariable logistic regression models.ResultsOur stu...

EstreraABSTRACTBackgroundWe reviewed the efficacy of intraoperative intercostal nerve cryoanalgesia for pain control in patients undergoing descending and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (D/TAAA) repairs.MethodsDuring 2013 and 2017, 241 patients underwent D/TAAA repair. Of those, 38 were treated with intraoperative cryoanalgesia to the intercostal nerves at the level of f...

We report the case of a 66-year-old woman with lung cancer in which preoperative three-dimensional computed tomography reconstruction and intraoperative images displayed a novel combined ectopic variation of the RUV and bronchus. The RUV was absent from the anterior hilum, but instead was present in the superior and posterior hilum dispersedly. In addition, the right upper lobe bronchus was ectopic to the lower edge of the "bronchus intermedius". Based on this discovery, video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy was successfully performed.

ConclusionsThe CHA2DS2-VASc score has relatively good performance in predicting POAF after cardiac surgery and may help identify the patients at high risk of POAF.

The anterior node appeared as a single cystic lesion without significant metabolic activity on scintigraphy images. The posterior node was a single solid lesion in the lower left peri-esophageal space above the diaphragmatic crura with moderate metabolic uptake. Endoscopic ultr...

We focused on the morphology of pseudo-Valsalva sinus after the re-implantation procedure and evaluated our novel crimp plication stich from the viewpoint of morphology of Valsalva sinus at mid-term follow up periods.
