Incidence and risk factors of readmission after esophagectomy for esophageal cancer.

Conclusions: Readmission within 30 days after esophagectomy was determined to be related to postoperative anastomotic leakage and wound problems whereas the vocal cord palsy was not. PMID: 31903259 [PubMed]

In this study, two novel benzimidazolium salts consisting propane sulfonate order were integrated in high yields as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) precursors.The silver-NHC buildings were set up by responding 1-(2,2-dimethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium and 1-(2,2-diethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium with silver oxide on average state. Gold-NHC edifices were acquired by means of transmetallation of their silver precursors with [AuCl{S(CH3)2}]. The structures of all mixes were completely portrayed by spectroscopic techniques (1H-NMR, 13C{1H} NMR , IR and elemental and further analyzed by DFT/...

Narayana MurthyAbstractIntroductionGlobally, cervical cancer is the 4th most common cancer and is one of the leading cancers causing death in India. Cervical cancer is one of those cancers which can be easily prevented by screening women who are aged above 30 years and by vaccinating young girls against HPV. Lack of awareness about cervical cancer makes early detection and timely screening difficult. Awareness about cervical cancer among people will help us to decide on an appropria...

ConclusionsOur findings support measurement invariance of the EORTC QLQ-C30 in a large sample of patients with hematological malignancies. The results showed that the number of non-invariant items was negligible, suggesting that this questionnaire is a valid and robust measurement tool in patients with hematological malignancies, also for comparisons across groups and time.

JohnstoneAbstractTourniquets have been around for many years, providing surgeons with a bloodless operative field and saving lives in the pre-hospital care of major limb trauma. However, their use does come with risk. It is therefore extremely important that we, as surgeons, fully understand the physiological influence they impose on patients, the complications associated with their use and, moreover, how to minimize the incidence of these complications. Most tourniquets are now electronically...

AbstractBakker et al found a change in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in 29 of 188 patients, when the examination was repeated at three months and at one year (1). The patients were all being investigated on account of back pain, with presumably varying degrees of concern about the possibility of inflammatory spondyloarthritis.Twelve (6.8%) patients were negative at the initial examination but became positive on subsequent testing. A percentage that was lower, but not dissimilar to Van Onna et al's report of 15% at two years (2).

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2020Source: Pathology - Research and PracticeAuthor(s): Hongying Wang, Weiping TianAbstractMicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been proven to be critical regulators of cancer development. To date, many of them are still in urgent need of characterisation, and role of miR-595 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. To better understand the mechanism of miR-595 in HCC development, a series of experiments were carried out to explore the effects of miR-595 on malignant behaviour in HCC. First, we found that miR-595 was downregulated in HCC tissues and cells and tightly associated w...
