Outcomes of Open Complex Ventral Hernia Repairs With Retromuscular Placement of Poly-4-Hydroxybutyrate Bioabsorbable Mesh.

Conclusions. Complex hernia repairs using bioabsorbable mesh were conducted in a small cohort of high-risk patients. These data demonstrate good outcomes with limited morbidity and mortality. There were no recurrences. PMID: 31617453 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Angiomyxoma is a rare, benign and locally aggressive tumor, which can infiltrate locally and present unusually as perineal hernia. Due to its rarity and lack of specific diagnostic requirements, it's difficult to diagnose preoperatively KEY WORDS: Angiomyxoma, Obturator hernia, Pelvic mass. PMID: 31723050 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: The etiology of chronic groin pain post hernia repair is related in part to nerve injury. This is supported by the high frequency of sensory symptoms and numbness in these patients. However other factors including the role of tissue injury and inflammatory postoperative changes need to be considered.

Authors: Kuck KH, Phan HL, Tilz RR Abstract The new guidelines for the management of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) were published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) in September 2019. The key message of the guidelines is that catheter ablation should be offered as a first line treatment to most patients during a comprehensive discussion of the risks and advantages. This recommendation recognizes that catheter ablation has nowadays become a widely established, effective and safe treatment method with a very low complication rate, which has revolutionized the treatment of SVT due to the substa...

AlsalmiAbstractMedicinal plants have always been an important source of new alternative effective compounds for human therapy. Currently, there are many of scientific evidences indicate that the medicinal plants contain a lot of hypoglycemic chemical compounds. The purpose of the present study was to determine the influence of olive leaves extract on hepatorenal injury in diabetic male rats. Experimental diabetes was induced by streptozotocin (STZ). The levels of serum glucose, alanine amin...

O'ReillyAbstractSlow inactivation in voltage-gated Na+ channels (Navs) plays an important physiological role in excitable tissues (muscle, heart, nerves) and mutations that disrupt Nav slow inactivation can result in pathophysiologies (myotonia, arrhythmias, epilepsy). While the molecular mechanisms responsible for slow inactivation remain elusive, previous studies have suggested a role for the pore-lining D1-S6 helix. The goals of this research were to determ...

Abstract Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are important for limiting inflammation-dependent damage in neural tissue. However, Tregs have also been shown to inhibit neural repair associated with type 2 (anti-inflammatory/wound healing) immune responses. Recently, it was demonstrated that Sirtuins, a family of proteins that contribute to the control of cellular responses to metabolic stimuli, influence the functions of Tregs. Specifically, SIRT4 was found to suppress the anti-neuroinflammatory activity of Tregs infiltrating the spinal cord following injury; when SIRT4 expression was genetically suppressed, Tregs made more...
