Parasites & Vectors; Duval P, Valiente Moro C et. al.

Nov 25th, 2022 - The Asian tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus is responsible for the transmission of many arboviruses worldwide and is well adapted to thrive in urban environments. In mainland France, a nonendemic area, this mosquito is responsible for several autochthonous and imported cases of chikungunya and dengue each year. Better management and prevention of mosquito-borne disease transmission in nonendemic ...

Current Oncology (Toronto, Ont.); Comito T, Loi M et. al.

Nov 25th, 2022 - Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent liver malignancy and a leading cause of cancer death in the world. In unresectable HCC patients, transcatheter arterial (chemo-) embolization (TAE/TACE) has shown a disease response in 15-55% of cases. Though multiple TAE/TACE courses can be administered in principle, Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) has emerged as an alternat...

Complex Chiari Malformations: Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Treatment.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nec.2022.08.009
Neurosurgery Clinics of North America; Ravindra VM, Brockmeyer DL

Nov 25th, 2022 - The term "complex Chiari malformation" (CCM) refers to a subset of clinical and radiographic findings that describe a subpopulation of Chiari patients with craniocervical kyphosis and secondary brainstem compression. These patients are at a greater risk for unsuccessful surgical treatment with standard Chiari surgical decompressive procedures and may require craniocervical fusion and/or odontoi...

The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews; Vlajkovic T, Grigore M et. al.

Nov 25th, 2022 - Assisted reproductive technology (ART) has allowed couples with a family history of a monogenic genetic disease, or a disease-carrying gene, to reduce the chance of them having a child with the genetic disorder. This is achieved by genetically testing the embryos using an advanced process called preimplantation genetic testing for monogenic or single gene disorders (PGT-M), such as Huntington's...

Nov 25th, 2022 - CM-I-associated syringomyelia is a risk factor for scoliosis where a larger syrinx size is more likely to be associated with scoliosis. Therefore, the effect of syrinx on scoliosis progression may be alleviated by PFD. There is no difference in the need for fusion surgery between patients undergoing PFD with duraplasty vs. those undergoing extradural decompression; however, PFD with duraplasty ...

PloS One; Favier V, Lescroart M et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - Surgical tracheostomy (ST) and Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) are classified as high-risk aerosol-generating procedures and might lead to healthcare workers (HCW) infection. Albeit the COVID-19 strain slightly released since the vaccination era, preventing HCW from infection remains a major economical and medical concern. To date, there is no study monitoring particle emissions du...

PloS One; Kuroda M, Kawakubo Y et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - Previous studies have demonstrated the clinical utility of cognitive-behavioral therapy in improving emotion regulation in children on the autism spectrum. However, no studies have elucidated the clinical utility of cognitive-behavioral therapy in improving emotion regulation in autistic adults. The aim of the present pilot study was to explore the preliminary clinical utility of a group-based ...

https://doi.org/10.1097/SAP.0000000000003277
Annals of Plastic Surgery; Park H, Choi JW et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - Fronto-orbital distraction osteogenesis (FODO), used to correct bilateral coronal craniosynostosis (BCS), is grossly classified into 1-piece and 2-piece FODO. One-piece FODO osteomizes the frontal and supraorbital bones as one block by preserving the attachment between the dura mater and bone, whereas the 2-piece FODO detaches bone segments from the underlying dura mater and reshapes them. This...

The American Journal of Case Reports; Zawadzki A, Dawid S et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - BACKGROUND Osteogensis imperfecta (OI) is a rare disorder associated with brittle bones, skeletal deformities, short stature, and conductive hearing loss. It is caused by mutations in genes encoding collagen type I production and is associated with multiple fractures occurring during a patient's lifetime. Atypical fractures can occur without a history of previous injury or diagnosis. CASE REPOR...

Nature Communications; Jiang Y, Wang J et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - Osteosarcoma (OS) is a primary malignant bone tumor that most commonly affects children, adolescents, and young adults. Here, we comprehensively analyze genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data from 121 OS patients. Somatic mutations are diverse within the cohort, and only TP53 is significantly mutated. Through unsupervised integrative clustering of the multi-omics data, we classify OS into ...

PloS One; Pan Z, Chang S et. al.

Nov 24th, 2022 - Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is an immunogenic tumor, and investigating the immunorelated genes is essential. To investigate the immunoprognostic genes of ccRCC, we analyzed the data assimilated from a public database (The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and the gene expression omnibus (GEO) database) using bioinformatics. Then, an immunoprognosis model was constructed to identif...

American Journal of Clinical Oncology; Kharofa JR, Yothers G et. al.

Nov 23rd, 2022 - Novel toxicity metrics that account for all adverse event (AE) grades and the frequency of may enhance toxicity reporting in clinical trials. The Toxicity Index (TI) accounts for all AE grades and frequencies for categories of interest. We evaluate the feasibility of using the TI methodology in 2 prospective anal cancer trials and to evaluate whether more conformal radiation (using Intensity Mo...

https://doi.org/10.1097/COC.0000000000000954
American Journal of Clinical Oncology; Wiesel O, Zlotnik O et. al.

Nov 23rd, 2022 - Favorable pathologic response(FPR) is a significant predictor for improved survival following Neoadjuvant therapy(NAT) in esophageal and gastroesophageal cancer(GEJ). Preoperative prediction of FPR could modify treatment plans. No reliable method for predicting FPR exists. We sought to identify preoperative predicting factors for FPR. Retrospective analysis of patients with esophageal and GEJ c...

The Journal of Craniofacial Surgery; Avinoam SP, Kowalski HR et. al.

Nov 22nd, 2022 - Presurgical infant orthopedic (PSIO) therapy has evolved in both its popularity and focus of treatment since its advent. Nasoalveolar molding, nasal elevators, the Latham appliance, lip taping, and passive plates are the modern treatment options offered by cleft teams. Many cleft surgeons also employ postsurgical nasal stenting (PSNS) after the primary lip repair procedure. The purpose of this ...
