Abstract Achilles tendon rupture is an increasingly common problem with an aging population participating in high-level physical activities. Appropriate treatment has been debated for decades, but good outcomes have been reported after conservative and surgical management. The development of minimally invasive surgical techniques for Achilles repair has reduced the incidence of complications and maintained the high level of function reported after open surgery. The Achilles Midsubstance SpeedBridge repair is a newer minimally invasive technique that has demonstrated promising results and is the authors' preferred ...

Purpose of review Refractive surgery is one of the most popular elective procedures performed in the world. Given that dry eye is a common complaint following keratorefractive surgery, evaluation, and treatment of periocular conditions that further predispose the patient to dry eye symptoms is an important part of the presurgical assessment. Periocular conditions and surgeries can also affect the ocular surface and keratometry, and should be addressed. For example, ptosis, orbital fat herniation, ectropion, and eyelid masses have been shown to induce corneal topography changes and astigmatism. The oculoplastic considerat...

Purpose of review Genome instability has long been implicated as a primary causal factor in cancer and diseases of aging. The genome is constantly under attack from extrinsic and intrinsic damaging agents. Uracil misincorporation in DNA and its repair is an intrinsic factor resulting in genomic instability and DNA mutations. Additionally, the presence of uracil in DNA can modify gene expression by interfering with promoter binding and transcription inhibition or upregulation of apoptotic proteins. In immune cells, uracil in DNA drives beneficial genomic diversity for antigen-driven immunity. This review addresses disease...

Introduction: The shortened esophagus is poorly defined and is determined intraoperatively, as there exists no objective test to identify a shortened esophagus before surgical hiatal hernia repair. We devised a unique manometric esophageal length to height (MELH) ratio to define the presence of a shortened esophagus and examined the role of esophageal length in hiatal hernia recurrence. Patients and Methods: A retrospective review identified 254 patients with hiatal hernia who underwent preoperative esophageal manometry and either an open hernia repair with Collis gastroplasty and fundoplication (with Collis) or lapar...

Authors: Tong L, Cao W, Sheng J, Zhu E, Yu Y, Zhong T, Chen Y, Wang L Abstract Ovarian cancer is one of the deadliest gynecological cancer, with a low overall 5-year survival rate. RDM1, RAD52 motif-containing protein 1, is sensitive to cisplatin, a common chemotherapy drug and it has an important role inDNA damage repair pathway. Until now, the effect of RDM1 in ovarian cancer is undiscovered. Here, clinical data shows that the tumour tissues of ovarian carcinoma patients with higher mRNA and protein expression of RDM1. Knockdown of RDM1 in ovarian carcinoma cells reduces cell proliferation and promotes apoptosis,...

Conclusion: We describe the successful use of a simple, low risk, and technique modification of the "gasket seal" technique adapted to the clivus that allows for hard reconstruction and facilitates placement of the nasoseptal flap. PMID: 32494378 [PubMed]
