IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 3491: The Relationship between Scabies and Stroke: A Population-Based Nationwide Study

Conclusions: The results of the study indicated an elevated risk of stroke among scabies patients, an association that might be contributed to by immunopathological factors. This information could serve as a reminder to clinicians to remain alert to any indications of neurological impairment in patients previously infected with scabies.

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Sohail Iqbal, Afzaal MalikAbstractThis paper provides a comprehensive review on the design and development of micro displacement amplification mechanisms. Micro displacement amplification mechanisms are gaining importance in MEMS applications where motion precision, reliability, accuracy, and compactness are needed. These displacement amplification mechanisms improve the sensitivity of micro-sensors and voltage stroke ratio of micro actuators. There advantages have opened doors for new and improved micro devices with unpre...

Hernández BattezAbstractTribological behavior of three Fatty Acid anion-based Ionic Liquids (FAILs) with the same ammonium cation ([N8881]) and different anions ([C16:0], [C12:0] and [C8:0]) were studied. Four different tribopairs (steel-steel, aluminum-steel, bronze-steel and tungsten carbide-steel) were tested for each FAIL using a ball-on-disc reciprocating test for 30 min (room temperature, 50 N-load, 4 mm of str...

Herein, we synthesized a novel photocatalytic composite material of I-deficient BiO1.2I0.6/WO3 by solvothermal method coupling with thermal decomposition. The PL spectrum and photoelectrochemical tests found that WO3 compounded by 40 wt% BiO1.2I0.6 greatly promoted...

Discussion Lyme disease (LD) is caused by several genospecies of Borrelia burgdorferi senu lato that are transmitted by ticks of the Ixodes ricinus complex. In the U.S. and Europe it is the most common vector-borne disease. It is named for Lyme, Connecticut in the 1970s when it was “discovered,” but there are reports of LD-type disease in Europe since 1883. There are 18 distinct genospecies with B. afzelii, B. garinii and B. burgdorferi sensu stricto being the 3 most common ones causing human infection. There are many species of Ixodes ticks but only 4 commonly bite humans. Ixodes ricinus mainly in Europe, I, p...

AbstractLingual resistance training has been proposed as an intervention to improve decreased tongue pressure strength and endurance in patients with dysphagia. However, little is known about the impact of lingual resistance training on swallow physiology. This systematic review scrutinizes the available evidence regarding the effects of lingual resistance training on swallowing function in studies using Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies (VFSS) with adults. Seven articles met the inclusion criteria and underwent detailed review for study quality, data extraction, and planned meta-analysis. Included studies applied this ...

PP Batchala, PK RehmJournal of Postgraduate Medicine 2019 65(4):237-240 A 66-year-old female underwent preoperative evaluation for primary hyperparathyroidism. Ultrasound (US) neck and technetium (Tc)-99m-sestamibi planar scintigraphy were negative, but single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) demonstrated a tracer-avid retropharyngeal nodule compatible with parathyroid adenoma (PTA). A retrospective review of CT neck angiogram (CTA) and neck magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed 4 months earlier for stroke evaluation revealed arterial phase hyperenhancing retropharyngeal tissue, whic...

This study aimed to compare short- and long-term results for patients undergoing either aortic valve-sparing reimplantation (David) procedure (AVr-D) or biological aortic root replacement (Bentall) procedure (ARr-B-bio) for aortic root pathology.MethodsWe compared outcomes for patients who underwent AVr-D (n = 261) or ARr-B-bio (n = 150) between 2000 and 2015 at our institution. The mean age of patients was 55 ± 13 years and 21.7% (n = 89) were female. ARr-B-bio patients were significantly older than AVr-D patients (58 ± 10 vs 53&thins...
