Apr 2nd, 2021 - Alcohol is one of the most commonly consumed substances in adolescence and can lead to many (mental) health problems. This study aimed to examine social determinants related to family, peers and school achievement as risk factors for alcohol intoxication (AI) among adolescents and to examine whether these risk factors differ in their prediction of AI concerning potential gender differences. The...

Nov 30th, 2020 - An improved procedure that allows accurate detection of negative sentinel lymph node (SLN) and of SLN macrometastases during surgery would be highly desirable in order to protect patients from further surgery and to avoid unnecessary costs. We evaluated the accuracy of an intraoperative procedure that combines touch imprint cytology (TIC) and subsequent frozen section (FS) analysis. 2276 SLNs f...

Nov 20th, 2020 - Frequent monitoring of forced vital capacity at home may be of added value in patients with SSc-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD) to monitor disease progression and guide treatment decisions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and optimal frequency of online home spirometry using a home monitoring application in patients with SSc-ILD. This was a prospective, obse...

Nov 11th, 2020 - Prehabilitation encompasses multidisciplinary interventions to improve health and lessen incidence of surgical deterioration by reducing physiologic stress and functional decline. This study presents an interim analysis to demonstrate prehabilitation for hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgical patients. In 2018, a structured prehabilitation pilot program was implemented. Eligibility required HPB ...

Nov 9th, 2020 - Clinical practice guidelines recommend performing a cuff leak test in mechanically ventilated adults who meet extubation criteria to screen those at high risk for post-extubation stridor. Previous systematic reviews demonstrated excellent specificity of the cuff leak test but disagreed with respect to sensitivity. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the diagnostic accur...

Nov 9th, 2020 - This prospective study sought to assess the functional and radiological outcomes of minimally invasive osteosynthesis using cannulated screws and to examine the effect of different parameters on the functional outcome. The Maryland foot score and the visual analog scale of pain were used to assess the functional outcomes and postoperative patient's satisfaction rate. Preoperative and postoperat...

Sep 24th, 2020 - Contamination of the catheter hub is an important source of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI); catheter hub caps incorporating a 70% isopropyl alcohol aim are designed to reduce contamination and hence CLABSI rates. Supporting data in high-risk hematological and oncological patients on the clinical effectiveness of this approach are sparse. We conducted a before-after sing...

Sep 10th, 2020 - A number of recent studies have investigated the optimal dosage and timing of dexamethasone in total hip arthroplasty (THA) but have inconsistent findings. Therefore, we designed the randomized controlled research to look for the optimal intravenous dexamethasone dose for the treatment of early postoperative pain after the THA. The Declaration of Helsinki principles was followed and the Consoli...

Aug 29th, 2020 - Chronic neuropathic pain (CNP) after burn injury to the hand/upper extremity is relatively common, but not well described in the literature. This study characterizes patients with CNP after hand/upper extremity burns to help guide risk stratification and treatment strategies. We hypothesize that multiple risk factors contribute to the development of CNP and refractory responses to treatment. Pa...

Aug 18th, 2020 - Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has been used for >30 years as a life-sustaining therapy in critically ill patients for a variety of indications. In the current study, we aimed to examine trends in use, mortality, length of stay (LOS), and costs for pediatric ECLS hospitalizations. We performed a retrospective cohort study of pediatric patients (between the ages of 28 days and <21 years) on ...

Aug 6th, 2020 - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), usually caused by tobacco smoking, is increased in China. Smoking cessation is the first step in COPD management. Data on predictors of smoking cessation are sparse in COPD patients in China. We aim to find the differences in the clinical characteristics between ex-smokers and current smokers with COPD to determine the factors related to smoking ces...

Jul 24th, 2020 - Medulloblastomas are one of the most common malignant pediatric brain tumors. Therapy has evolved into multimodality treatments consisting of surgery, radiation, and adjuvant chemotherapy. While craniospinal radiation remains standard for patients older than 3 years of age, it is not free of side effects and long-term complications. The development of malignant gliomas following therapy is a we...

Jul 21st, 2020 - We evaluated that early metabolic response determined by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) during radiotherapy (RT), predicts outcomes in non-small cell lung cancer. Twenty-eight patients evaluated using pretreatment 18F-FDG-PET/CT (PETpre) and interim 18F-FDG-PET/CT (PETinterim) after 11 fractions of RT were retrospectively reviewed. Maximum s...

Jul 2nd, 2020 - Background: Cold-induced urticaria can take place either due to direct cold exposure, cryoglobulinemia, or genetic component (such as cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome), which leads to the rapid onset of urticaria and/or angioedema. It is more common in younger patients and more likely to affect females compared with males. Objective: To increase awareness of such systemic reactions of ana...
