OBJECTIVE: Refractory ascites is defined as a lack of response to high doses of diuretics or the development of diuretic related side effects, which compel the patient to discontinue the diuretic treatment. Current therapeutic strategies include repeated large-volume paracentesis and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS). Peritoneovenous shunt (Denver shunt) should be considered for patients with refractory ascites who are not candidates for paracentesis or TIPS. This study presents our case series in the implant of Denver peritoneovenous shunt...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid hormones are essential for growth and brain development in childhood. Although congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is the most common reason for mental retardation, normal neurological development can be achieved through early and effective treatment. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the neurological development of CH patients aged 24-56 months. METHODS: The study included a total of 116 healthy control subjects and 112 patients aged 24-56 months who were diagnosed with CH during the neonatal period and were being followed up at the Pediatric Endocrinology Department, Keçiören Training and Research Hospital, between 2012 and 2015...

The spatial arrangement of urban vegetation depends on urban morphology and socio-economic settings. Urban vegetation changes over time because of human management. Urban trees are removed due to hazard prevention or aesthetic preferences. Previous research attributed tree loss to decreases in canopy cover. However, this provides little information about location and structural characteristics of trees lost, as well as environmental and social factors affecting tree loss dynamics. This is particularly relevant in residential landscapes where access to residential parcels for field surveys is limited...

BACKGROUND: Denver(®) shunts have traditionally been used for palliation of refractory malignant and chylous peritoneal and pleural collections. We describe an innovative use of the Denver shunt in a child with generalized lymphatic anomaly. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective chart review of a 6-year-old girl with generalized lymphatic anomaly, who presented with refractory lymphorrhea from the labium majus, was performed. This was managed with innovative placement of the Denver shunt between a large abdominal wall cyst and the peritoneal cavity...

Depression prevalence is known to vary by individual factors (gender, age, race, medical comorbidities) and by neighborhood factors (neighborhood deprivation). However, the combination of individual- and neighborhood-level data is rarely available to assess their relative contribution to variation in depression across neighborhoods. We geocoded depression diagnosis and demographic data from electronic health records for 165,600 patients seen in two large health systems serving the Denver population (Kaiser Permanente and Denver Health) to Denver's 144 census tracts, and combined these data with indices of neighborhood deprivation obtained from the American Community Survey...

INTRODUCTION: Hemangiomas are benign tumors characterized by proliferation of blood vessels. A few hemangiomas are aggressive, characterized by bone expansion and extraosseous extension. These benign tumors may be mistaken for metatasis resulting in unnecessary biopsies, which have a high risk of hemorrhage. These hemangiomas can spread not just into the paraspinal soft tissues but also into the epidural region of the spinal canal causing cord compression and paraparesis. These clinical symptoms can be relieved by surgical decompression of the posterior elements, embolization or radiotherapy...

Rapid and significant transformation is occurring within the private sector of the health care system with consolidation, integration and the formation of new organizational structures such as Accountable Care Organizations. However, the safety-net systems upon which many patients rely, have remained largely in silos. To focus a spotlight on this issue at a community level we have compared the safety net in Alameda County, California and Denver, Colorado, the former with a safety net largely in silos and the latter an integrated safety net...

OBJECTIVE Blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVIs) following trauma carry risk for morbidity and mortality. Since patients with BCVI are often asymptomatic at presentation and neurological sequelae often occur within 72 hours, timely diagnosis is essential. Multidetector CT angiography (CTA) has been shown to be a noninvasive, cost-effective, reliable means of screening; however, the false-positive rate of CTA in diagnosing patients with BCVI represents a key drawback. Therefore, the authors assessed the role of DSA in the screening of BCVI when utilizing CTA as the initial screening modality...

BACKGROUND: Children less than five years of age have the highest age-specific rate of progression from latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) to active disease. Therefore, regimens for treatment of pediatric LTBI must be not only efficacious but practical enough to overcome the unique childhood barriers to regimen adherence. Since 2012, a 4-month regimen of daily rifampin (4R) has been the standard recommendation for pediatric LTBI at the Denver Metro Tuberculosis Clinic (DMTBC). METHODS: Using univariate and multivariate analysis, we compared treatment completion rates between 4R and 9-month isoniazid (9H) regimens for all pediatric patients treated for LTBI at the DMTBC between 1/1/2006 and 12/31/2015, and assessed the influence of clinical and demographic characteristics on successful completion of the two regimens...

Cerebral and systemic organ microvascular pathologies coexist with human Alzheimer's disease (AD) neuropathology. In this study, we hypothesised that both cerebral and systemic microvascular pathologies exist in 4- to 5-month-old male APPswe/PS1dE9 (APP/PS1) transgenic mice prior to the onset of cognitive impairment. To assess this we examined recognition memory in both wild-type and APP/PS1 mice using the object recognition task (ORT; n = 11 per group) and counted thioflavin-S-positive plaques in brain (n = 6 per group)...

BACKGROUND: Perennial growth in plants is the product of interdependent cycles of daily and annual stimuli that induce cycles of growth and dormancy. In conifers, needles are the key perennial organ that integrates daily and seasonal signals from light, temperature, and water availability. To understand the relationship between seasonal cycles and seasonal gene expression responses in conifers, we examined diurnal and circannual needle mRNA accumulation in Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) needles at diurnal and circannual scales...
