Eating broccoli found to help with brain and nerve repair

(Natural News) Numerous studies show that the brain can repair and renew nervous tissue. People may support these natural processes by eating sulforaphane-rich foods like broccoli. Neuroscience experts previously believed that the brain cannot repair damaged neurons. However, a study conducted by MIT researcher Joseph Altman in the 1960s showed that the brains of adult rats, adult guinea pigs,...

Conclusions Surgical repair with muscle flap coverage, with or without ligation of profunda femoris artery, does not affect prognosis. An alternative method for identifying healthy segments of femoral artery may be frozen section and examination of the artery to decrease the risk of recurrence at the site of anastomosis.RESUMO Contexto A doen ça de Behçet (DB) é uma enfermidade autoimune que envolve múltiplos sistemas. A manifestação arterial mais comum em pacientes com DB é o pseudoaneurisma, que tem uma frequência mais alta do que a formação de aneurism...

DISCUSSION: From the published data from 1964 to 2017, patients who underwent surgical exploration within 3 weeks of injury had a significantly higher likelihood of regaining radial nerve function than patients who underwent nonsurgical management with or without late surgical exploration.

The purpose of this retrospective case series was to report a new surgical technique for lateral ulnar collateral ligament (LUCL) repair using a cortical button and the clinical results. Twenty patients underwent a LUCL repair using a cortical button at a single institution were included for evaluation of the demographic, radiologic, and clinical examination data. Nine patients returned for a separate study visit for further clinical examination and outcome surveys. Eighteen patients (mean age: 48 y, 10 males) received at least 1 additional procedure other than a LUCL repair. For the 9 patients who returned for a st...

We describe the reconstruction of high-grade extensor tendon tears using a knotless suture anchor and hypothesize that this will result in improved elbow pain and function with a high healing rate. Twenty chronic lateral epicondylitis patients with magnetic resonance imaging–confirmed high-grade extensor tendon tears underwent surgery using a knotless suture anchor technique. All underwent clinical and ultrasound assessments and completed the quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand and patient-rated tennis elbow evaluation questionnaires at final follow-up. Preoperative and postoperative Mayo Elbow Performa...

We present a novel variation of a surgical technique for reconstruction of chronic distal biceps tendon ruptures using the “Anatomic Length Method.” Graft length for chronic distal biceps tendon rupture reconstruction is extremely variable and typically empirically determined by elbow position during final fixation. These techniques do not account for chronicity and varying degrees of retraction and muscle shortening. For this unique variation in the surgical technique, the graft length used is based on previous anatomic cadaveric measurements done in our center with an external distal biceps tendon length mean...

Matthew O'Conner presented at Undoing Aging earlier this year on the startup biotech company Underdog Pharmaceuticals. The company is spinning out of the SENS Research Foundation (SRF), based on research conducted by the scientific team there in recent years. The company is focused on a class of molecule known cyclodextrins, and have candidates capable of efficiently binding and sequestering 7-ketocholesterol. This form of oxidized cholesterol is of great importance to the progression of atherosclerosis, and possibly other age-related conditions as well. In the case of atherosclerosis, the presence of oxidized cholesterols...

Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: European Journal of Obstetrics &Gynecology and Reproductive BiologyAuthor(s): Cecilie B Paulsen, Dennis Zetner, Jacob RosenbergAbstractIncisional hernia is a well-known complication following abdominal surgery. A frequently performed abdominal operative procedure is cesarean section. In 2015 the median cesarean section rate in Europe was 27% with rates up to 57% when looking at individual countries, and the rates of cesarean sections increased with 4% in Europe from 2010 to 2015. Nonetheless, the occurrence of incisional hernia subsequent to cesarean sections i...
