Relationships of handgrip strength with the presence of cerebral microbleeds and platelet count in older Japanese adults.

CONCLUSIONS: Platelet count, a marker of vascular repair capability, appears to modify the relationship between handgrip strength and CMBs. PMID: 32477460 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: This study presented high-resolution data of the LVP muscle behavior with the first in vivo 3-D measurements of the contracted LVP muscle, which can be useful for the validation of computational models that aim at describing biomechanical properties of the LVP muscle in future research. The active behavior of the extravelar LVP muscle also provides some insight on optimal LVP muscle geometry to consider during cleft palate repair. PMID: 32551942 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

With the desire to remain athletically competitive, many adolescent athletes with shoulder instability are turning to early surgical invention. But is surgical repair always necessary and are all Bankart lesions identical? Using 3-dimensional, frequency-selective, fat-suppressed gradient recalled echo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, the authors noted that the anterior glenoid rim secondary ossification center peaks at age 16 years in male patients but is only fused in 70% of male patients at age 17 years.

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...

AbstractWe propose a novel method to quantify pulsatile liver deformation using the feature tracking method of cardiac cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and investigate its association with liver dysfunction in long-term postoperative patients after Fontan and intracardiac repair for the tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). Standard cine MRI which was previously performed for cardiac evaluation of 85 patients who underwent Fontan operation (mean age, 22.9  years), 43 patients with TOF (mean age, 34.6 years), and 32 healthy controls (mean age, 42.3 years) were retrospectively analyzed. Pulsatile liver deformation i...

BanksAbstractThe dog has been used extensively as an experimental model to study meniscal treatments such as meniscectomy, meniscal repair and regeneration. Accurate quantification of meniscal size and morphology are a crucial step for developing models of the meniscus. 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been found to be highly accurate in analyzing the meniscus in both clinical and research fields. However, 3.0T MRI systems are still uncommonly used...

Abstract Clinical studies have demonstrated that transtibial pullout repair led to favorable midterm outcomes in patients with medial meniscus posterior root tears (MMPRTs) although medial meniscal extrusion (MME) continued to be present. It has been unclear whether these residual postoperative MMEs existed after the pullout repair or had progressed at the very short-term evaluation after surgery. We sought to determine which characteristics of patients with MMPRTs influence the incidence of postoperative MME. The cases of 23 patients whose date of injury was known were analyzed. All patients underwent MMPRT pullo...

The objective of this study is to report an extremely rare case of a giant benign fibrous histiocytoma with pleural involvement in spinal region successfully operated by posterior spinal surgery. The management of these unique cases has yet to be well-documented. Patient concerns: A 23-year-old man presented with a 2-month history of continuous and progressive back pain. A giant, expanding lesion of the T7 vertebral and paraspinal region with pleural involvement was identified. Diagnoses: Computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging of spine showed expanding lesion of the T7 vertebral and paraspinal region...
