l L Abstract Necrotizing fasciitis is a fulminant and potentially life-threatening infection of the skin and soft tissue. It is usually caused by a combination of different bacteria and is often due to assumed minor trauma. Clinically, only relatively insignificant skin changes are initially present, such as blistering or erythema. They are often accompanied by excessive pain. In the further course, the massive systemic reaction becomes predominant. The diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis is primarily clinical, which can be supported by laboratory parameters (LRINEC score) and computed tomography imaging....

Authors: Clapp B, Liggett E, Ma C, Castro C, Montelongo S, Van Noy K, Dilday J, Tyroch A Abstract Background: Many bariatric surgeons test the anastomosis and staple lines with some sort of provocative test. This can take the form of an air leak test with a nasogastric tube with methylene blue dye or with an endoscopy. The State Department of Health Statistics in Texas tracks outcomes using the Texas Public Use Data File (PUDF). Methods: We queried the Texas Inpatient and Outpatient PUDFs for 2013 to 2017 to examine the number of bariatric surgeries with endoscopy performed at the same time. We used the Interna...

This study aimed to explore the relationship between the maxillary sinus wall (MSW) and maxillary canines and posterior teeth using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIAL AND METHODS CBCT images (317) were examined for whether the mesial, distal, buccal, and palatal surfaces of the examined root contacted the MSW, and the contact distance of each root surface with the MSW was measured. The effects of age and sex were analyzed using logistic regression and linear regression analyses. RESULTS The highest contact ratios with the MSW (ranging from 62.0% to 73.2%) were observed at the palatal root surfaces of the first ...

Authors: Li L, Sun W, Han M, Ying Y, Wang Q Abstract BACKGROUND Early and rapid identification of severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases is important. The present study aimed to investigate the predictors of disease severity and thus determine the trends for disease progression early. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with COVID-19 were recruited from Fuyang Second People's Hospital from January to February 2020. Patients' demographic, epidemiological, and clinical data were collected, and the relationships between these variables and disease severity were analyzed.
