In this study, we investigated the link between AF and senescence markers through the assessment of protein expression in the tissue lysates of human appendages from patients in AF, including paroxysmal (PAF) or permanent AF (PmAF), and in sinus rhythm (SR). The major findings of the study indicated that the progression of AF is strongly related to the human atrial senescence burden as determined by p53 and p16 expression. The stepwise increase of senescence (p53, p16), prothrombotic (TF), and proremodeling (MMP-9) markers observed in the right atrial appendages of patients in SR, PAF, and PmAF points toward multiple inter...

Doctors of the World is extremely concerned about the impact that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill will have on the health of vulnerable EU citizens and public health as a whole. MPs are currently debating the Bill in Parliament. If passed, it will entrench the EU Settlement Application route into UK law. EU nationals and their families will become subjected to the Hostile Environment. This could create a new, larger, Windrush scandal. And the most vulnerable will be facing the higher risks, such as elderly people and people experiencing homelessness. EU nationals who have not been able to apply for pre-settled or settle...

ConclusionIn the current scenario, tissue engineering and cell therapy employ an innovative approach to reduce the mortality rate. However, the main challenge for this is customization, which is somewhat taken up by AM technologies. This technology has already addressed different challenges in the medical field. For tissue and organ printing, this technique seems better as compared to 2D conventional cell technique. With the help of scanned data, 3D printing allows us to create intricate internal structures. Thus, it can be used to develop bone tissues, which are required for clinical applications towards the treatment of ...

Discussion, “Top 5 Things You Need to Know about the Implantable Internet of Things." Brian Chapman, partner and leader of ZS’s medtech practice of ZS, attributes today’s focus on data to the intersection of two important things: "A general recognition that understanding more and connecting actions with outcomes will provide feedback and understanding that will drive standards of care. This is not new, but as capabilities rise in data collection, aggregation, and synthesize rise, and coupled with machine learning, the promise of data in healthcare is becoming ...

Shah Islam Hugh Harvey By HUGH HARVEY, MBBS and SHAH ISLAM, MBBS AI in medical imaging entered the consciousness of radiologists just a few years ago, notably peaking in 2016 when Geoffrey Hinton declared radiologists’ time was up, swiftly followed by the first AI startups booking exhibiting booths at RSNA. Three years on, the sheer number and scale of AI-focussed offerings has gathered significant pace, so much so that this year a decision was made by the RSNA organising committee to move the ever-growing AI showcase to a new space located in the lower level of the North Hall. In some ways it made sense to ...

AbstractObjectiveTo assess interobserver reproducibility of different regions of interest (ROIs) on multi-parametric renal MRI using commercially available software.Materials and methodsHealthy volunteers (HV), patients with heart failure (HF) and renal transplant recipients (Tx) were recruited. Localiser scans, T1 mapping and pseudo-continuous arterial spin labelling (pCASL) were performed. HV and Tx also underwent diffusion-weighted imaging to allow calculation of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC). For T1, pCASL and ADC, ROIs were drawn for whole kidney (WK), cortex (Cx), user-defined representative cortex (rep-Cx) an...
