Comparison of clinical results between novel percutaneous pedicle screw and traditional open pedicle screw fixation for thoracolumbar fractures without neurological deficit
ConclusionsNovel percutaneous pedicle screws with angle reset function can achieve the same effect as traditional open pedicle screw fixation in the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures without nerve injuries. Percutaneous minimally invasive pedicle screw fixation has the characteristics of shorter operative time, less bleeding, and less pain, but it needs more radiation times.

The NIAAA and Big Alcohol
Officials halt government study on moderate drinking funded by alcohol industryThe New York Times reports: “The extensive government trial was intended to settle an age-old question about alcohol and diet: Does a daily cocktail or beer really protect against heart attacks and stroke?To find out, the National Institutes of Health gave scientists $100 million to fund a global study comparing people who drink with those who don ’t. Its conclusions could have enshrined alcohol as part of a healthy diet.As it turned out, much of the money for the study came from the alcohol industry. Earlier this year, The New York Times re...

Minimizing the Short-term Reoperation Rate in Abdominoplasty Procedures by Prolonged Postoperative Immobilization
ConclusionProlonged immobilization after abdominoplasty does not crucially lower the overall complication rate, but influences the severity of complications in a positive way. Increasing the duration of postoperative immobilization up to 45  h after abdominoplasty significantly decreases the reoperation rate in our practice. The risk for a surgical revision is nearly four times higher if the patient leaves bed earlier. Surgeons should consider this option especially in patients with a high risk for complication development.

Is the grass greener for those at risk of psychosis?
It has become clear in recent years that the incidence of schizophrenia, and of psychosis in general, varies considerably. Thus, the systematic review by McGrath et al. (2004) suggested a five-fold variation in the incidence of schizophrenia, while the very recent EU-GEI study reported that the incidence of psychosis was five times higher in certain of the Northern European sites studied than that in parts of Italy and Spain (Jongsma et al., 2018).

Trends in the incidence of retinopathy of prematurity over a 10-year period
ConclusionWe observed a decreasing trend in the incidence of any ROP across the 10-year period in a tertiary hospital in Hong Kong, while the incidence of Type 1 ROP remained stable at 4.5%. The factors leading to the trend were unclear. Improved prenatal care, changing proportion of cases with different birth weight and gestational age, oxygenation level practice in neonatal unit may all contribute to the decreasing trend. Revision of screening criteria may be made according to local experience to maximise cost-effectiveness.

Comparison of aerobic atrazine degradation with zero valent aluminum and zero valent iron
This study systematically compared the degradation of atrazine (ATR) with aerobic zero-valent aluminum (ZVAl/Air) and zero-valent iron (ZVI/Air) systems. By comparing the ATR degradation curves and rate in the ZVAl/Air and the ZVI/Air systems, a significant induction period was observed in the ZVAl/Air system, and the pseudo-first-order rate constant of ATR degradation in the second stage by ZVAl was 6.4 times faster than that by ZVI. The differences in ATR degradation patterns of the two systems stemmed from the different redox nature and electrical conductivity of aluminum (oxide) and iron (oxide). Reactive oxygen specie...

Mapping the continuum of care to surgery following traumatic spinal cord injury
Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating injury, frequently resulting in paralysis and a lifetime of medical and social problems. Reducing time to surgery may improve patient outcomes. A vital first step to reduce times is to map current pathways of care from injury to surgery, identify rapid care pathways and factors associated with rapid care pathway times.

One-Sided Triangle: A Case of Double Vision
A 51-year-old woman presented with acute diplopia and was found to have ptosis and complete bilateral external and internal ophthalmoplegia. She had normal reflexes and gait. Serological testing showed elevated levels of GQ1b ganglioside autoantibodies, making the diagnosis of Miller Fisher syndrome. This case illustrates an atypical presentation of the Miller Fisher variant of Guillain Barre syndrome, which should be considered in all patients presenting with bilateral ophthalmoplegia.

Photosensitizer-induced cross-linking: A novel approach for improvement of physicochemical and structural properties of gelatin edible films
This study investigated a novel method of photosensitizer-induced cross-linking (using riboflavin as a sensitizer) to improve the structural and physicochemical properties of gelatin-based edible films with different glycerol concentrations (25% and 50%) during different UV exposure times (2, 4 and 6 h). The films' tensile strength was enhanced significantly for both glycerol concentrations with increasing UV exposure times compared to the control film, so that the highest tensile strength was observed for films with 25% glycerol and 6 h of UV exposure (25%-6 h). The films' tensile strength declined and the elongatio...

Impact of early institutionalization on attention mechanisms underlying the inhibition of a planned action
We examined differences in behavioral and Event Related Potentials (ERPs) during a go-no-go task when children were 12 years old. Results revealed that the ever-institutionalized group (CAUG and FCG combined) showed slower reaction times, worse performance accuracy, larger P2 activation, and smaller (less negative) N2 activation than the NIG group. Results of a moderation analysis revealed that children who spent more time in institutions and had small N2s showed more externalizing symptoms. These results have implications for the design of treatment approaches for previously institutionalized children with externalizing behavior problems.

Recognition memory advantage for negative emotional words has an early expiry date: evidence from brain oscillations and ERPs
Publication date: Available online 15 June 2018 Source:Neuropsychologia Author(s): G. Santaniello, P. Ferré, P. Rodríguez-Gómez, C. Poch, M. Moreno Eva, J.A. Hinojosa Evidence from prior studies has shown an advantage in recognition memory for emotional compared to neutral words. Whether this advantage is short-lived or rather extends over longer periods, as well as whether the effect depends on words’ valence (i.e., positive or negative), remains unknown. In the present ERP/EEG study, we investigated this issue by manipulating the lag distance (LAG-2, LAG-8 and LAG-16) between the presentation of old and new words i...

Regional glucose metabolism due to the presence of cerebral amyloidopathy in older adults with depression and mild cognitive impairment
Older adults with depression commonly experience cognitive dysfunction (Ownby et al., 2006). In addition, older adults with a history of depression are two to three times more likely to develop dementia (Barnes et al., 2012; Diniz et al., 2013). Some older adults with depression recover from the symptoms of cognitive dysfunction following treatment with antidepressant medications, some continue to experience cognitive dysfunction as a residual symptom of depression, and others complain of a worsening of cognitive dysfunction, despite significant improvement in the depressive symptoms (Morimoto et al., 2015).
