PloS One; Wilson S, Mouet A et. al.

Mar 22nd, 2022 - Health care workers (HCWs) are particularly exposed to COVID-19 and therefore it is important to study preventive measures in this population. To investigate socio-demographic factors and professional practice associated with the risk of COVID-19 among HCWs in health establishments in Normandy, France. A cross-sectional and 3 case-control studies using bootstrap methods were conducted in order ...

Journal of Interventional Cardiology; Sun F, Liu H et. al.

Mar 15th, 2022 - Implantation of the MitraClip is a safe and effective therapy for mitral valve repair in patients ineligible for surgery or at high risk of adverse surgical outcomes. However, only limited information is available concerning sex differences in transcatheter mitral valve repair. We therefore sought to conduct a comprehensive meta-analysis of studies that investigated differences between men and ...

https://doi.org/10.21873/anticanres.15604
Anticancer Research; Velasquez MC, Mouzannar A et. al.

Feb 28th, 2022 - Collecting duct carcinoma, epithelioid angiosarcoma and neuroendocrine/carcinoid tumor are uncommon renal malignancies, and their association with tumor thrombus extending into the inferior vena cava is extremely rare. Owing to the rarity of the above-mentioned malignancies and short follow-up of the cases published in the literature, the prognosis and clinical behavior of these tumors remains ...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8837397
Infectious Disease Clinics of North America; Reich P, Elward A

Feb 17th, 2022 - COVID-19 is a nonspecific viral illness caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, and led to an ongoing global pandemic. Transmission is primarily human-to-human via contact with respiratory particles containing infectious virus. The risk of transmission to health care personnel is low with proper use of personal protective equipment, including gowns, gloves, N95 or surgical mask, and eye prot...

Investigation of respiratory rate in patients with cystic fibrosis using a minimal-impa...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8832687
BMC Pulmonary Medicine; Straßburg S, Linker CM et. al.

Feb 13th, 2022 - In this study we tested the hypothesis that in patients with cystic fibrosis (pwCF) respiratory rate (RR) is associated with antibiotic treatment, exacerbation status, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) and C-reactive protein (CRP). Between June 2018 and May 2019, we consecutively enrolled pwCF who were referred to our hospital. We determined RR and heart rate (HR) by using the minim...

https://doi.org/10.21873/anticanres.15562
Anticancer Research; Wazir U, Patani N et. al.

Jan 31st, 2022 - Improvements in acellular dermal matrix (ADM) and surgical techniques have facilitated pre-pectoral immediate breast reconstruction (IBR). Outer shell texturing is a key risk factor for anaplastic large cell lymphoma, prompting this evaluation of reconstruction with nano-textured rounded implants. Fifty-one consecutive patients underwent 72 pre-pectoral ADM-assisted (fenestrated SurgiMend™) IBR...

Parasites & Vectors; Pijnacker T, Bartels R et. al.

Jan 31st, 2022 - Canine babesiosis is an important tick-borne disease in endemic regions. One of the relevant subspecies in Europe is Babesia canis, and it can cause severe clinical signs such as hemolytic anemia. Apart from acute clinical symptoms dogs can also have a more chronic disease development or be asymptomatic carriers. Our objective was to identify readily available ADVIA hematology analyzer paramete...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8797565
Medicine Kim HO, Lee BC et. al.

Jan 29th, 2022 - Transarterial chemoembolization is the standard treatment option for intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, during the interventional procedure, occupational radiation protection is compromised. The use of real-time radiation dosimetry could provide instantaneous radiation doses. This study aimed to evaluate the occupational dose of the medical staff using a real-time radia...

Simultaneous perception of prosthetic and natural vision in AMD patients.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8792035
Nature Communications; Palanker D, Le Mer Y et. al.

Jan 28th, 2022 - Loss of photoreceptors in atrophic age-related macular degeneration (AMD) results in severe visual impairment. Since the low-resolution peripheral vision is retained in such conditions, restoration of central vision should not jeopardize the surrounding healthy retina and allow for simultaneous use of the natural and prosthetic sight. This interim report, prespecified in the study protocol, pre...

PloS One; Lin EE, Razzaque UA et. al.

Jan 27th, 2022 - COVID-19 has exposed stark inequalities between resource-rich and resource-poor countries. International UN- and WHO-led efforts, such as COVAX, have provided SARS-CoV-2 vaccines but half of African countries have less than 2% vaccinated in their population, and only 15 have reached 10% by October 2021, further disadvantaging local economic recovery. Key for this implementation and preventing f...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8790544
International Urology and Nephrology; Ward EP, Bartolone SN et. al.

Jan 27th, 2022 - The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown had a substantial impact on normal research operations. Researchers needed to adapt their methods to engage at-home participants. One method is crowdsourcing, in which researchers use social media to recruit participants, gather data, and collect samples. We utilized this method to develop a diagnostic test for Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syn...

Pancreas Wang Z, Li X et. al.

Jan 19th, 2022 - Pediatric pancreatoblastoma (PBL) is a rare disease, and the treatment of which is diverse. The molecular alteration in pancreatoblastoma is not very clear. A 7-year-old female who presented with intermittent abdominal pain, anorexia, and abdominal mass was admitted in our hospital. Pancreaticoduodenectomy, cholecystectomy, and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection were conducted. Immunohistoch...

Smart facemask for wireless CO2 monitoring.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8748626
Nature Communications; Escobedo P, Fernández-Ramos MD et. al.

Jan 12th, 2022 - The use of facemasks by the general population is recommended worldwide to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Despite the evidence in favour of facemasks to reduce community transmission, there is also agreement on the potential adverse effects of their prolonged usage, mainly caused by CO2 rebreathing. Herein we report the development of a sensing platform for gaseous CO2 real-time determinatio...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8731221
The American Journal of Emergency Medicine; Szarpak L, Peacock FW et. al.

Jan 12th, 2022 - Endotracheal intubation (ETI) is still the gold standard of airway management, but in cases of sudden cardiac arrest in patients with suspected SARS-CoV-2 infection, ETI is associated with risks for both the patient and the medical personnel. We hypothesized that the Vie Scope® is more useful for endotracheal intubation of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cardiac arrest patients than the convent...

An evaluation of the diagnostic performance characteristics of the Yellow Fever IgM imm...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8741057
PloS One; Ofosu-Appiah LH, Amelor DK et. al.

Jan 8th, 2022 - Yellow fever is endemic in Ghana and outbreaks occur periodically. The prodromal signs due to Yellow Fever Virus (YFV) infection are non-specific, making clinical signs unreliable as the sole criteria for diagnosis. Accurate laboratory confirmation of suspected yellow fever cases is therefore vital in surveillance programs. Reporting of ELISA IgM testing results by laboratories can delay due to...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8720211
BMC Cardiovascular Disorders; Zoller M, Atmowihardjo I et. al.

Jan 2nd, 2022 - Thrombosis resulting from heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) occurs in about 2% of patients without a significant decrease in platelet counts. We report on such a near fatal thrombotic event caused by coronary intervention. A supposedly "completely healthy" 53-year-old patient was admitted to hospital with covered rupture of an aneurysm of the Aorta descendens. He was successfully operated ...

Dec 22nd, 2021 - Cystic fibrosis (CF) programs and people with CF (PwCF) employed various monitoring methods for virtual care during the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper characterizes experiences with remote monitoring across the U.S. CF community. The CF Foundation (CFF) sponsored distribution of home spirometers (April 2020 to May 2021), surveys to PwCF and CF programs (July to September 2020), and a second prog...
