The nutraceuticals: a new therapeutic strategy in the management of digestive and respiratory disorders.
Abstract Nutraceuticals represents an intriguing challenge in clinical practice. They are currently used worldwide in all fields of Medicine. The present Supplement reports two Italian surveys concerning a probiotic mixture employed in patients with chronic intestinal disorders and a Medical Device used in patients with upper respiratory diseases. These surveys were conducted on a group of Italian gastroenterologists and on a group of Italian otolaryngologists respectively. Both surveys demonstrated that these compounds may represent a useful therapeutic option in clinical practice. PMID: 31292419 [PubMed - i...

Influence of cigarette smoking on allergic rhinitis: a comparative study on smokers and non-smokers.
Abstract It has been described that exposure to tobacco smoke causes worsening of allergic rhinitis symptoms. Otherwise, some studies have demonstrated a negative association between cigarette smoke and allergic rhinitis (AR). Given this inconsistency, this study evaluated the quality of life and immuno-inflammatory parameters in current smokers and nonsmokers suffering from AR. A comparative cross-sectional study was conducted in patients who presented symptoms of AR. Patients were categorized into two groups: current smokers and non-smokers based on salivary cotinine measurements. Primary outcomes were the level...

The narrative interview for the assessment of the assisted person: structure, method and data analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: A good narrative interview starts long before the interview itself and it requires: a specific training in the use of the instrument; the strengthening of specific skills (e.g. the active listening); the choice of optimal setting and timing for the patient; the ability to offer encouragement in the expression of the subjective experience and to conduct an analysis of the patient's words with a subjective lens, reflecting the uniqueness of each illness experience.

The CiTAS scale for evaluating taste alteration induced by chemotherapy: state of the art on its clinical use.
CONCLUSIONS: In literature, CITAS scale has been used on very heterogeneous populations and not adequately studied in specific care settings, its use within controlled trials could implement its spread.Correct and subjective evaluation of TAs would allow the planning of specific and personalized interventions aimed at providing adequate nutrition to support the maintenance and/or achievement of a correct body mass index. All this could contribute significantly to a better perception of QoL in patients undergoing chemotherapy. PMID: 31292411 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Acta Bio-Medica : Atenei Parmensis)

VAS for assessing the perception of antihistamines use in allergic rhinitis.
Abstract The quantification of the antihistamines' consumption is particularly relevant in clinical practice, since their remarkable use is usually associated with severe symptoms. The aim of the study was to measure the visual analogue scale (VAS) for assessing the patient's perception about antihistamines use in patients with allergic rhinitis. 103 patients (49 males, mean age 35.9 years) with allergic rhinitis due to Parietaria pollen were evaluated retrospectively. They recorded monthly the number of antihistamine tables they took during the pollen season (lasting for about 5 months). There was a strong relati...

Unusual meningitis caused by non-typhoid Salmonella in an Italian infant: a case report.
CONCLUSIONS: Most of pediatric patients with NTS infection develop self-limited gastroenteritis, but in 3-8% of the cases complications such as bacteremia and meningitis may occur, especially in weak patients. Cerebral imaging can be useful to identify neurological findings. Although there is no standardized treatment for this condition, specific antibiotic therapy for at least four weeks is recommended. Neuroimaging follow up is required due to high risk of relapse. PMID: 31125015 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Acta Bio-Medica : Atenei Parmensis)

Endovascular treatment of iliac artery rupture after septic embolization.
Abstract A 56-year man with multiple comorbidities and recent septic embolization presented claudication intermittens (Rutherford3) at right lower limb and complaint in right lower quadrant at abdominal palpation. Duplex and computed tomography angiogram (CTA) showed a 64mm-pseudo-aneurysm (PA) originating from right common iliac artery, occlusion of external iliac and patency of hypogastric artery. An urgent endovascular approach was preferred. By left brachial percutaneous access, coil embolization (Balt SPI™ and Cook MReye™) of hypogastric and common iliac artery and deployment of Amplatzer Vascular...

A remarkable pattern of a tibial plateau fracture - use of a safe technique with practical advantages in the surgical field.
We report a case of a 68 year-old-male patient with a complicated tibial plateau bicondylar fracture. The fracture of the tibial plateau involved all columns (lateral, medial, posterior). The fracture pattern of the proximal tibia managed by triple plating through dual posteromedial and anterolateral incisions. Posterior-medial and the medial plating result in increased stability. The posteromedial approach to the knee that we used in our case, offers various advantages. We recommend the option of the posteromedial access, as an approach that allows excellent control of the posterior involvement of this pattern of tibial p...

Osteoarchaeology and the History of Medicine in our experience.
Abstract The encounter between archaeology and medicine is no longer the result of sporadic or intermittent research. Stemming from different areas of expertise and training, as well as historical sciences, archaeology, biology and medicine, common investigative objectives must come together in a coordinated manner. However, defining the boundaries of different areas of work, collaboration, interferences and interconnections is not an easy task.

Metformin, arterial contrast and acute kidney Injury.
CONCLUSIONS: Our single center, small observational study showed no difference in the incidence of CIN in patients who continued to be on metformin after arterial contrast exposure compared to the control group. PMID: 31125020 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Acta Bio-Medica : Atenei Parmensis)
