Effect of heated humidified ventilation on bronchial mucus transport velocity in general anaesthesia: a randomized trial.
To evaluate the effects of heated humidified ventilation on mucociliary function during general anaesthesia. Male patients (ASA physical status 1 or 2), scheduled for elective radical retropubic prostatectomy, were allocated to receive sevoflurane general anaesthesia with conventional or heated humi...
Acute promyelocytic leukaemia with a PML-RARA insertional translocation and a chromosome 21 abnormality in XYY syndrome: case report.
Our findings suggest that the additional chromosomal abnormalities involving the sex chromosomes and chromosome 21 did not affect the prognosis of APL, and that the sequential treatment strategy had a good clinical effect without being associated with severe side-effects. © The Author(s) 2014 Repri...
Comparison of emergence times with different fresh gas flow rates following desflurane anaesthesia.
These results suggest that there is the potential to predict emergence time based on fresh gas flow rate following desflurane anaesthesia. It should therefore be possible to use a low-flow technique during the emergence period, in addition to the maintenance period, without delaying recovery if the...
N-terminal prohormone B-type natriuretic peptide and weaning outcome in postoperative patients with pulmonary complications.
To evaluate the relationship between plasma N-terminal prohormone B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and weaning outcomes, and the ability of NT-proBNP level to predict weaning success, in cancer patients with pulmonary complications undergoing noncardiac major surgeries. Patients who were mecha...
Relationship between epicardial adipose tissue volume measured using coronary computed tomography angiography and atherosclerotic plaque cha...
To investigate the relationship between epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) volume and coronary plaque composition. EAT volume (measured using coronary computed tomography angiography) and coronary plaque characteristics were assessed on a per-segment basis (modified 15-segment American College of Cardi...
Retrospective analysis of 102 cases of solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of the pancreas in China.
Clinicopathological features and surgical outcomes in patients with solid pseudopapillary neoplasm (SPN) of the pancreas were analysed. Data regarding clinicopathological features, surgery and outcome for patients with SPN were retrospectively collected and analysed. Patients were followed-up by tel...
Prognostic value of serum paraoxonase and arylesterase activity in patients with sepsis.
To determine whether serum paraoxonase (PON) and arylesterase (ARE) activity might predict sepsis mortality. Patients with sepsis and healthy control subjects were enrolled in this retrospective study. Serum PON and ARE activity levels were measured. Patients were stratified according to 30-day mort...
Downregulation of pigment epithelium-derived factor in condyloma acuminatum.
To investigate pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) mRNA and protein levels in condyloma acuminatum, and their relationship with angiogenesis and keratinocyte proliferation. Lesions from male patients with condyloma acuminatum and skin from healthy male (control) subjects were collected. Levels...
Statin therapy does not improve lung function in asthma: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
These results were not statistically significant and, furthermore, publication bias was detected. In conclusion, there is currently insufficient evidence to show that statins improve lung function in patients with asthma....
Plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance--current knowledge and future perspectives.
Quinolones are a group of antimicrobial agents that were serendipitously discovered as byproducts of the synthesis of chloroquine. Chemical modifications, such as the addition of fluorine or piperazine, resulted in the synthesis of third- and fourth-generation fluoroquinolones, with broad-spectrum a...
