Human Milk Use in the Preoperative Period Is Associated with a Lower Risk for Necrotizing Enterocolitis in Neonates with Complex Congenital Heart Disease
To evaluate the hypothesis that feeding volumes exceeding 100 mL/kg/d and exposure to cow's milk formula preoperatively increase the risk for preoperative necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in infants with complex congenital heart disease.
Conclusions Patients are not adequately ready to change their health-related behaviors. Higher cardiovascular risk predicts higher readiness to change health behaviors.

Authors: Li H, Cao L, Yi PQ, Xu C, Su J, Chen PZ, Li M, Chen JY Abstract Radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) is a common sequelae of thoracic irradiation. Currently, there is no effective prevention and treatment strategy. Oxidative stress is associated with the development of RIHD. Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide 38 (PACAP38) has been defined as the multipotent properties of cytoprotective effect on its anti-apoptotic and antioxidant activities. Here, we set to investigate whether PACAP38 plays a role in attenuating RIHD. We established radiation-related cardiac injury models using 6MV X-ray ...
Conclusions: VATS is like a conventional surgeries for improving MG in thymoma patients with accompanying MG. VATS resection can still be considered for thymoma that only invades the mediastinal pleura. For thymomas that have intact capsules and have not invaded mediastinal pleura, MSA surgery shall be performed to ensure patient safety if the anteroposterior diameters of the tumors are large and the masses have produced severe compression of the innominate vein, even if the tumors are still in the Masaoka stage II. For thymomas with large left-to-right diameters and with most parts of the tumors located in the left thorac...

Conclusion: This study identifies tetracycline-resistant GAS in Ugandan communities, suggests modified skin examination of exposed anatomic locations may be appropriate for population-based GAS skin infection studies, and underscores need for clear case definitions of GAS skin infection. Future studies are needed to evaluate the role of GAS skin infection in development of RHD in Ugandan communities.
