BMC Medical Education; Weimer J, Rolef P et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - In emergency and critical-care medicine, focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) is indispensable for assessing a patient's cardiac status. The aim of this study was to establish and validate a peer-to-peer-supported ultrasound course for learning FoCUS-specific skills during undergraduate studies at a German university. A 1-day, 12 teaching units training course was developed for students in the cl...

BMC Ophthalmology; Tanito M, Hara T et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Visual field (VF) testing in combination with a specialized VF analysis software is critical for characterizing and monitoring visual loss in glaucoma. Although performing glaucoma progression analysis requires original VF data rather than printouts or image files, extent of VF data transfer between referring and referred ophthalmologists is unclear. Here, we surveyed glaucoma specialists who b...

BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders; Yan K, Shi Z et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Short-term researches have studied the change of the center of rotation (COR) after the Bryan Cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA). But there is a lack of long-term studies focusing on the location of COR and its influence after surgery. Clinical and radiographic materials of patients who received CDA were retrospectively reviewed. Written informed consents were obtained. Clinical outcome was acces...

BMC Health Services Research; Stillman M, Kibira SPS et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Abortion-related complications contribute to preventable maternal mortality, accounting for 9.8% of maternal deaths globally, and 15.6% in sub-Saharan Africa. High-quality postabortion care (PAC) can mitigate the negative health outcomes associated with unsafe abortion. While the expanded Global Gag Rule policy did not prohibit the provision of PAC, other research has suggested that over-implem...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9893420
The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews; Wilson LM, Saldanha IJ et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - People with cystic fibrosis (CF) experience chronic airway infections as a result of mucus buildup within the lungs. Repeated infections often cause lung damage and disease. Airway clearance therapies aim to improve mucus clearance, increase sputum production, and improve airway function. The active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) is an airway clearance method that uses a cycle of technique...

Malaria Journal; Ilombe G, Mpiempie T et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Malaria morbidity and mortality increase in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) may be the consequence of the low utilization rate of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) resulting from poor compliance due to adverse events (AEs). This study aimed at determining the prevalence and predictors of AEs following the mass distribution of LLINs in the Kisantu Health Zone (KHZ), a high malari...

Advances in imaging techniques to assess kidney fibrosis.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9897785
Renal Failure; Jiang B, Liu F et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - As a sign of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression, renal fibrosis is an irreversible and alarming pathological change. The accurate diagnosis of renal fibrosis depends on the widely used renal biopsy, but this diagnostic modality is invasive and can easily lead to sampling error. With the development of imaging techniques, an increasing number of noninvasive imaging techniques, such as mult...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9896310
Journal for Immunotherapy of Cancer; Sorin M, Karimi E et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Immunotherapy has revolutionized clinical outcomes for patients suffering from lung cancer, yet relatively few patients sustain long-term durable responses. Recent studies have demonstrated that the tumor immune microenvironment fosters tumorous heterogeneity and mediates both disease progression and response to immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI). As such, there is an unmet need to elucidate th...

BMJ Open; Verburgt CM, Dunn KA et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Early relapse in Crohn's disease (CD) is associated with a more severe disease course. The microbiome plays a crucial role, yet strategies targeting the microbiome are underrepresented in current guidelines. We hypothesise that early manipulation of the microbiome will improve clinical response to standard-of-care (SOC) induction therapy in patients with a relapse-associated microbiome profile....

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9892572
Translational Psychiatry; Murgaš M, Unterholzner J et. al.

Feb 2nd, 2023 - Theta-burst stimulation (TBS) represents a brain stimulation technique effective for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) as underlined by meta-analyses. While the methodology undergoes constant refinement, bilateral stimulation of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) appears promising to restore left DLPFC hypoactivity and right hyperactivity found in depression. The post-synaptic inhibi...

BMC Ophthalmology; Lv X, Zhang F et. al.

Feb 1st, 2023 - The design of cap thickness for small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) plays a role in post-laser vision correction (post-LVC) corneal biomechanics. This study aimed to compare the corneal biomechanical characteristics following SMILE with different cap thicknesses of 110 μm, 120 μm, and 130 μm for myopia and myopic astigmatism correction. Seventy-five patients (146 eyes) who underwent SMI...
