ConclusionCongenital piriform sinus fistula is an important cause of deep neck abscess in children. The presence of purulent gas-liquid equilibrium or air shadow in cervical-enhanced computed tomography or ultrasound suggests a high possibility of the presence of an internal fistula, and endoscopic low temperature ablation can be done at the same time as the diagnostic endoscopy.ResumoIntroduçãoA fístula congênita do seio piriforme é uma doença relativamente rara na prática clínica; a maioria se manifesta na infância; entretanto, os médicos geralmente t&ec...

ConclusionsThe results suggested that KXS exerted antidepressant effects by regulating the signaling pathways involved in lipid metabolism disorders. The lipid metabolites might be potential biomarkers of depression and possible targets for KXS-based treatment of depression.Graphical abstract

UdeozorAbstractAimsAfrican walnuts were previously shown to modulate hepatic lipid bio-accumulation in obesity. Herein, we investigated the impact of the nuts on fat accumulation in adipose and ectopic regions, and associated oxidatiive stress status in obese rats.Materials and methodsWhole ethanol extract (WE) of the nuts, and its liquid-liquid fractions-ethyl acetate (ET) and residue (RES) were separately ad...

Conclusion: It may be employed either alone or in combination with cryotherapy, existing chemotherapy, bypass surgery or radiations to achieve the optimal results in these patients. Nevertheless, there is a need to formulate a uniform dose and procedure to achieve homogeneity and develop references for clinical practices. PMID: 31977258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We enrolled 808 pregnant women, composed of 264 with 'one NC', 121 with 'multiple NCs', 39 with BC and 384 with 'no NC', were monitored from the 37th week of gestation before labour, while 49 pregnant women with 'one or more NCs' and 47 with 'no NCs' were analysed during la...

Therefore, the development of novel fluorescent materials with both excellent photostability and biodegradability is of great significance for further broadening their application in numerous research fields. In this work, Nb2C quantum dots (Nb2C QDs) with pristine cryst...

Authors: Yeung M, Shin JJ, Lesniak BP, Lin A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare complication rates between arthroscopic versus open biceps tenodesis in the setting of arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and to determine the effect of fellowship training on complication rates. METHODS: The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery database was used to identify cases of arthroscopic and open biceps tenodesis in the setting of rotator cuff repair between 2012 and 2016. Surgical, medical, and anesthetic complications, location, fellowship training, surgery year, and patient demographic data we...

We describe an automatic natural language processing (NLP)-based image captioning method to describe fetal ultrasound video content by modelling the vocabulary commonly used by sonographers and sonologists. The generated captions are similar to the words spoken by a sonographer when describing the scan experience in terms of visual content and performed scanning actions. Using full-length second-trimester fetal ultrasound videos and text derived from accompanying expert voice-over audio recordings, we train deep learning models consisting of convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks in merged configuratio...
