Effect of low intensity photobiomodulation associated with norbixin-based poly (hydroxybutyrate) membrane on post-tenotomy tendon repair. In vivo study.

Effect of low intensity photobiomodulation associated with norbixin-based poly (hydroxybutyrate) membrane on post-tenotomy tendon repair. In vivo study. Acta Cir Bras. 2020;35(3):e202000303 Authors: Nascimento LDES, Nicolau RA, Maia Filho ALM, Nascimento KFES, Santos JZLV, Sousa RC, Carvalho LFM, Viana VGF Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the in vivo response of photobiomodulation therapy associated with norbixin-based poly(hydroxybutyrate) membrane (PHB) in tenotomized calcaneal tendon. METHODS: Thirty rats were randomly allocated to six groups (n=5 each): LED groups (L1, L2 and L3) and membrane + LED groups (ML1, ML2 and ML3). The right calcaneal tendons of all animals were sectioned transversely and were irradiated with LED daily, one hour after surgery every 24 hours, until the day of euthanasia. At the end of the experiments the tendons were removed for histological analysis. RESULTS: The histological analysis showed a significant reduction in inflammatory cells in the ML1, ML2 and ML3 groups (p=0.0056, p=0.0018 and p

Discussion and conclusions: It was confirmed that baicalin alleviated post-I/R myocardial injury and reduced inflammation via JAK/STAT pathway, and baicalin treatment might be recommended as a new approach for myocardial ischaemic complications. PMID: 32649845 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsStapler repair with anastomosis is a safe and minimally invasive treatment option for stoma prolapse with a low recurrence. However, the effectiveness of reparing stoma prolapse on the proximal limb of loop ileostomy might be limited.

I realise the title of this post is likely to raise a few eyebrows at the very least, and perhaps it will even cause some to say ‘illness, an illusion? I think not!’ in some indignation so I’d ask you to hold off on a reaction while I put the statement into context. A few posts ago I wrote about the first of the things I know to be true, that we are all walking miracles. In that post I shared how I’ve found that taking a little time out of my busy thinking allows me to settle into a space where I know what I need to do in order to be as healthy as I can be. My body is a walking miracle; it stitches,...

Authors: Sunwoo JY, Murrell GAC Abstract Managing massive irreparable rotator cuff tears is a challenge. Interposition graft repairs to bridge the torn defect are a promising solution. Many graft materials are available for interposition repairs including the following: allografts, autografts, extracellular matrix, and synthetic grafts. Currently, it is unknown how these materials compare biomechanically or in their clinical outcomes when used for interposition graft repairs of massive irreparable rotator cuff tears. Most allografts and autografts are similar, in maximal load and stiffness, to intact rotator cuff t...

In conclusion, dominant missense KAT5 variants cause histone acetylation deficiency with transcriptional dysregulation of multiples genes, thereby leading to a neurodevelopmental syndrome with sleep disturb ance, cerebellar atrophy and facial dysmorphisms suggesting a recognizable syndrome.

We report the successful endovascular repair of a rare case of aortic rupture caused by axillary intra ‐aortic balloon pump (IABP) insertion failure. A 38‐year‐old Jehovah's Witness female with situs inversus totalis was referred to our hospital for acute decompensated heart failure. We placed an axillary IABP for circulatory support. However, an exchange was required due to balloon malfunction (kinked driveline). Unfortunately, the exchange was complicated by an iatrogenic aortic rupture along with a large hematoma compressing the trachea. Emergent endovascular repair was performed successfully without any blood tra...

AbstractBackgroundTransfemoral aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has been studied extensively in patients with improving safety and efficacy in high to intermediate ‐risk patients with aortic stenosis. TAVR has been now approved for patients with low surgical risk.ObjectiveThe purpose of this study is to integrate the evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCT) and large registry data comparing TAVR to surgical aortic valve repair (SAVR).MethodsSeven studies (three RCTs, one post hoc study of a RCT, and three registries) were included. Incidence rate ratios (IRR) of outcomes of interest (overall mortality, 30 ‐day m...

ConclusionsSome reports on the treatment of a KD and ASA have been reported thus far in the literature. However, it is considered rare to find two asymptomatic thoracic saccular aortic aneurysms coexisting with a KD in a patient over 80 years old, as was discovered in this patient.
