#1
Feridoun Sabzi, Reza Faraji
A 55-year-old man underwent surgical replacement of a mitral valve 10 years earlier. In a retrospective evaluation of a chest radiograph, the diaphragm was intact at the time of initial surgery. He was then admitted to our emergency room with a complaint of vertigo. During evaluation, he developed decreased consciousness. Ventricular fibrillation was diagnosed, and external massage and full cardiopulmonary resuscitation were performed. After 20 minutes, his sinus rhythm returned and hemodynamic status stabilized with inotropic drugs...

Hydatid cyst has a predilection to involve the liver and lungs. Most of the reported cases of intra-pleural hydatid cyst are secondary; primary involvement has rarely been reported in the English-language literature. Here, we report on a 33-year-old woman who presented with complaints of dyspnea, cough, low-grade fever, and chills over the previous 3 months. Primary pleural hydatidosis was suspected on abdominopelvic CT; hence, right thoracotomy and cystectomy were performed. Albendazole was administered postoperatively for 6 months...

Background: The differential diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) and malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is difficult because the biochemical profiles are similar. The present study aimed to differentiate TPE from MPE, using a decision tree and a weighted sparse representation-based classification (WSRC) method, based on the best combination of routine pleural effusion fluid biomarkers. Materials and Methods: The routine biomarkers of pleural fluid, including differential cell count, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), protein, glucose and adenosine deaminase (ADA), were measured in 236 patients (100 with TPE and 136 with MPE)...

Background: As healthcare workers (HCWs), medical trainees are at a high-risk for acquisition of tuberculosis (TB) infection and disease. To our knowledge, there are no published data about TB infection among medical trainees in Tunisia.To determine the tuberculin skin test (TST) positivity and tuberculin conversion among a group of medical trainees in different departments at our institution. Materials and Methods: We performed a prospective study using the TST...

Background: Leprosy is a chronic infectious disease with permanent complications that mainly affect the skin, peripheral nerves, mucosal surfaces of the upper respiratory tract, and eyes. The aim of this study was to investigate the epidemiology and trends of leprosy in Iran from 2005 to 2015. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study analyzing leprosy records from the Center for Communicable Disease Control, Ministry of Health and Medical Education, during 2005-2015...

Background: The concentration of circulating catecholamine increases during exercise in healthy athletes, but the variation has not been studied much in athletes who develop exercise-induced bronchospasm. This study measured changes in circulating catecholamine levels using the induced maximal effort test in the laboratory in professional cyclists sensitive to bronchospasm. Materials and Methods: This experimental study included 86 professional cyclists. They underwent two pulmonary function tests (to determine forced expiratory volume in one second [FEV1]) and two blood samples (to measure adrenaline and noradrenaline levels) were drawn before and after the stress test...

Roya Sharifpour, Pardis Ghafarian, Mehrdad Bakhshayesh-Karam, Hamidreza Jamaati, Mohammad Reza Ay
Background: The most important advantage of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging is its capability of quantitative analysis. The aim of the current study was to choose the proper standardized uptake value (SUV) threshold, when the time-of-flight (TOF) and point spread function (PSF) were used for respiratory artifact reduction in the liver dome in a new-generation PET/CT scanner. Materials and Methods: The current study was conducted using a National Electrical Manufacturers Association International Electrotechnical Commission body phantom, with activity ratios of 2:1 and 4:1...

Background: Today, a host of veterans who were exposed to mustard gas suffer from substantially poor quality of life (QoL). However, factors that influence these patients' QoL have not been yet scrutinized. QoL is deemed as a crucial construct that demands careful attention during evaluation as well as intervention. The present study aimed to delve into the physical, mental, and social factors that affect the QoL of mustard gas victims. Materials and Methods: All the physical, mental, and social parameters that influence the QoL of mustard gas victims were scrutinized through a systematic review...

Background: The tracheal cartilage plays an important role in maintaining the mechanical stability of the trachea, as it keeps the trachea open and prevents its collapse under the negative pressures of the respiratory cycle. This study aimed to evaluate and compare the mechanical properties of cartilage specimens from the cranial and caudal regions of the human trachea and compare the results with respect to age and sex of the subjects. Materials and Methods: After obtaining human trachea samples from brain-dead, organ-donating patients and storing them in appropriate conditions, the prepared cartilage samples from the cranial and caudal regions of the trachea were subjected to uniaxial tension and stress relaxation experiments to obtain the corresponding Young's modulus and relaxation percentage values, respectively...

Background: Neuraminidase (NA) is one of the surface proteins of influenza A virus, which plays an important role in immunization against influenza infection and is recognized as an important therapeutic target. Genetic and antigenic changes and substitutions can influence the efficacy of vaccine and change viral sensitivity to NA inhibitors (NAIs). In this study, we performed phylogenetic and molecular analyses of NA changes in influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus, compared them with the corresponding vaccine strain, and examined drug resistance mutations in isolates from patients...
