This study used a murine model of adenine-induced renal failure to investigate whether or not SCFAs can prevent the progression of renal damage. We also examined whether or not these FFA2 and FFA3 proteins have some roles in this protective mechanism in vivo. Immunohistochemical analyses of mouse kidneys showed that FFA2 and FFA3 proteins were expressed mainly in the distal renal tubules and collecting tubules. First, we observed that the administration of propionate mitigated the renal dysfunction and pathological deterioration caused by adenine. Consistent with this, the expression of inflammatory cytokines and fibrosis-...
We report a 35‐year‐old patient who presented with only hemoptysis without any other cardiac complaint. The patient with this unusual diagnosis and presentation was managed successfully.
ConclusionBoth transcatheter and robotic surgery approaches had excellent outcomes but transcatheter closure had shorter hospital and ICU stays. Robotic surgery provides a similar complication risk that can be comparable to the transcatheter approach as well as patient comfort and cosmetic advantage over the other surgical techniques.
AbstractCoronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is one of the most commonly performed cardiac surgeries in the world. CABG using the internal mammary artery (IMA) remains the gold standard intervention for myocardial intervention in multivessel coronary artery disease. IMA harvesting can be performed with various techniques and approaches: pedicled vs skeletonized harvesting technique as well as approaches such as conventional sternotomy, robotic and endoscopic approaches. While each technique and approach have their respective advantages and disadvantages, evidence remains varied between cohorts. Traditionally, IMA has been u...
We report a case of culture ‐negative aortic valve endocarditis secondary toTropheryma whipplei infection. Our patient underwent aortic valve replacement after 4 weeks of antibiotic therapy with persistently negative blood culture results. Despite a technically uneventful operation, the patient showed continued sepsis and was unresponsive to a broad ‐spectrum of antibiotic therapy with subsequent multiorgan failure. He died on the 5th postoperative day, and diagnosis was established at postmortem examination. In this case report, we discuss the diagnosis and treatment of a rare type of endocarditis caused byT.whipplei.
ConclusionOverinflation of the balloon during ETV and subsequent hypothalamic injury can cause DI, a rare but potentially dangerous complication of this procedure. Postoperative surveillance and management of electrolytes disturbances is crucial to prevent any long term injury. ETV must be reconsidered if the prepontine cistern is not clearly patent to avoid complications.

RaijmakersAbstractThe current project studied the direct, near transfer, and far transfer effects of cognitive flexibility training in two experiments with 117 3-year-olds. In both Experiments 1 and 2, children performed three Dimensional Change Card Sorting (DCCS) tasks in a pre-training/training/post-training design. The training consisted of giving corrective feedback in the training DCCS task. In Experiment 2, in addition, three other executive co...
ConclusionsThe paired comparison method captured substantially more heterogeneity in the hierarchy of personal values among adolescents compared to the rating scale, which may be influenced by response style bias.

Publication date: Available online 13 February 2020Source: Contemporary Educational PsychologyAuthor(s): Nigel Mantou Lou, Kimberly A. NoelsAbstractFor migrant students enrolled in a postsecondary institution where the language of instruction is not their native language, experiencing anxiety using a new language can manifest in their daily social interactions, and lead them to avoid using the target language, thereby undercutting their academic and social adaptation. We propose that this vicious cycle of language anxiety and intercultural experiences is influenced by language mindsets (i.e., beliefs about the extent to wh...
