Detection of Subclinical Cerebral Suffering Related to Hypertension Using Multimodal MRI

Mar 14th, 2023 - Hypertension is a risk factor for many brain pathologies, such as ischemic and hemorrhagic neurodegenerative diseases or stroke. The literature seems to agree on the relationship between hypertension and brain damage, and on the benefit of the management of hypertension to prevent certain neurological pathologies. However, to our knowledge, no single study has shown signs of subclinical brain d...

Wire Instrumentation Using Radiofrequency Energy to Impact Transseptal Efficiency

Mar 14th, 2023 - The transseptal puncture is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the cardiac electrophysiology and interventional cardiology laboratories.

SARS-COV2 Pandemic Serosurvey in a Rare Disease Population

Mar 14th, 2023 - It has been demonstrated that respiratory virus outbreaks and pandemics, such as influenza, SARS, MERS, and now the newly emerged SARS-COV2 virus, have a major impact on morbidity and mortality worldwide, as well as having devastating global economic and societal impact. During these outbreaks it is critical to gain a rapid understanding of the exposures and immunity in the general population. ...

Personalized Treatment

Mar 14th, 2023 - Cognitive behavioral theory proposes that cognitions, behaviors, affect, and physiological symptoms interact with each other to maintain and exacerbate psychiatric disorders (Beck, 2011). Network theory identifies core symptoms that maintain and promote the spread of ED psychopathology within individuals (Borsboom & Cramer, 2013). Once identified, core "trigger" symptoms can be directly targete...

Effects of Sucralose in Insulin Sensitivity, Intestinal Microbiota and Postprandial GLP-1

Mar 14th, 2023 - Study design: This is a triple-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Sample size: The sample size was calculated to observe a difference of 15% in insulin sensitivity based on two outcomes: glucose rate of appearance (Ra) and glucose rate of disappearance (Rd) obtained from the hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic glucose clamp to measure the liver and skeletal muscle insulin s...

Treatment of Acute ACL Injuries in Young Patients Using a Rebound ACL Brace

Mar 14th, 2023 - A well known treatment of posterior cruciate ligament injuries in the acute phase is a brace which pushes the tibia anteriorly, and the result of the treatment is often successful with healing of the ligament. Similarly, in anterior cruciate ligament injuries, it is suggested that a rebound ACL brace which pushes the tibia posteriorly can facilitate healing of the ACL. It does not have as succe...
