The Mechanism and Function of circlRP6 Targeting miR-145 in Occurrence of Intracranial Aneurysms
CONCLUSION: CircLRP6 is low expressed in intracranial aneurysms and negatively correlates with miR-145 expression. CircLRP6 may be involved in the development of intracranial aneurysms by influencing VSMC phenotype transformation. CircLRP6 acts as a natural sponge for miR-145, regulating VSMC proliferation, migration, and differentiation and promoting apoptosis, ultimately inhibiting the development of intracranial aneurysms. This study provides a theoretical basis for clinical research on the mechanism of intracranial aneurysms.PMID:38743893 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)

The Relationship Between Congenital Heart Disease in Newborns and Maternal Prenatal Folic Acid Supplementation, and Analysis of Other High-Risk Factors
CONCLUSION: Pregnant women should choose an appropriate gestational age for conception. During the perinatal period, pregnant women should avoid exposure to the aforementioned high-risk factors as much as possible and supplement folic acid appropriately. It is essential to cultivate good dietary and lifestyle habits, as this has significant implications for preventing and reducing the occurrence of CHD in newborns. Healthcare professionals should prioritize educating pregnant women about the risks associated with the identified high-risk factors and emphasize the importance of early prenatal care. Furthermore, promoting ap...

Diagnostic Utility of Surrounding Tissue Hardness in Breast Masses: A Quantitative Analysis Using Shear Wave Elastography to Distinguish Malignancy Across Various Mass Sizes
CONCLUSIONS: SWE parameters effectively quantify surrounding tissue hardness in breast masses and have diagnostic value in distinguishing between benign and malignant masses of varying sizes, particularly in masses ≤20mm. SWE offers crucial quantitative parameters for the clinical discrimination of breast masses, enhancing diagnostic accuracy and sensitivity. Future studies should expand sample sizes and optimize diagnostic models to enhance SWE's utility further in discriminating breast mass malignancy.PMID:38743897 (Source: Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine)
