Safety and feasibility of using low-dose perioperative intravenous steroids in inflammatory bowel disease patients undergoing major colorect...
Thirty-two procedures were performed on 10 patients on steroids at the time of operation and 22 patients had who stopped steroids within 1 year of surgery. Five patients (16%) developed tachycardia and 8 patients (25%) had bradycardia. Hypotension occurred in 5 (16%) patients. All cases of hemodynam...
Multidrug strategies are effective in the treatment of severe experimental pancreatitis.
Both multidrug regimens significantly reduced pancreatic and systemic injury and microcirculatory disturbances compared to any of the monotherapies. Treatment with regimen 1 decreased 24-hour mortality to 0% and increased long-term survival to 85% (standard therapy, 70% and 15%, respectively). Multi...
Pretreating mesenchymal stem cells with interleukin-1β and transforming growth factor-β synergistically increases vascular endothelial growt...
MSCs cotreated with IL-1β and TGF-β1 exhibited synergistically increased VEGF secretion, and they greatly improved postischemic myocardial functional recovery. Ablation of p38 MAPK and SMAD3 activation with specific inhibitors negated both IL-1β- and TGF-β1-mediated VEGF production in MSCs and t...
Effect of postoperative thyrotropin suppressive therapy on bone mineral density in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma: a prospective ...
We have conducted a randomized controlled trial evaluating the effects of postoperative TSH suppressive therapy on disease-free survival for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) since 1996, while prospectively verifying the effects of TSH suppression on BMD. Lumbar spine BMD as expresse...

Risk stratification for the development of a subsequent pneumonia after a nondiagnostic bronchoalveolar lavage.
We evaluated if the absence of pathogens on final results represented a lavage aspect of the BAL as a therapeutic procedure to eliminate organisms. BAL results collected from 2008 to 2009 were stratified as positive (POS) ≥100,000 cfu), indeterminate (INT)≤100,000 cfu pathologic...
