Preliminary Study: 3D Nailing for Intertrochanteric Femur Fractures
CONCLUSION: In both static compression and fatigue tests, 3DPFN exhibits significant biomechanical advantages over PFNA. This suggests that 3DPFN may be an excellent choice for the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures of the femur and holds further research value for development. Future studies may involve clinical trials to validate and refine the 3DPFN design based on the observed results and promote the advancement of orthopedic implant technology.PMID:38687858 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)

Risk Factors and Predictive Efficacy of Visceral Pleural Invasion in Lung Adenocarcinoma Patients with mGGN type
CONCLUSION: The occurrence of visceral pleural infiltration in patients with mGGN lung adenocarcinoma is related to the relationship between pleural indentation and bronchus and nodules. Combined with the above indicators, the risk of visceral pleural infiltration in patients can be effectively predicted, and early intervention and treatment can be performed on high-risk patients accordingly to effectively prevent and treat visceral pleural infiltration.PMID:38687859 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)

Delta-SVV as a Predictor for Circulating Blood Volume Evaluation during Intraoperative Period: A Prospective Cohort Study
CONCLUSION: In conclusion, SVV measured by FloTrac / Vigileo could guile fluid therapy precisely by predicting the blood volume of patients during the intraoperative period, as it has a strong linear correlation with the blood volume of patients who underwent general anesthesia, meaning anesthesiologist could calculate the exact fluid volume for patients' infusion. Further studies with large cohorts and centers would be needed to validate its efficiency.PMID:38687861 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)

Efficacy of Breast-Conserving Surgery Versus Modified Radical Surgery in the Treatment of Early Breast Cancer: A Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSION: In the treatment of early breast cancer, breast-conserving surgery has the advantages of less bleeding, fewer clinical complications, and favorable cosmetic outcomes compared with modified radical surgery. Furthermore, patients with breast-conserving surgery showed comparable recurrence and distant metastatic rates to those with modified radical surgery in postoperative follow-up, which, therefore is a suitable treatment option for the widespread recommendation. The study's findings hold significant clinical relevance, implying that while BCT remains a viable option, MRM may offer a survival advantage. This ins...
