OBJECTIVE: The cognitive neuropsychological model of depression proposes that negative biases in the processing of emotionally salient information have a central role in the development and maintenance of depression. We have conducted a systematic review to determine whether acute experimental inflammation is associated with changes to cognitive and emotional processing that are thought to cause and maintain depression. METHODS: We identified experimental studies in which healthy individuals were administered an acute inflammatory challenge (bacterial endotoxin/vaccination) and standardised tests of cognitive function were performed...

Excitement about mobile health (mHealth) for improving care transitions is fueled by widespread adoption of smartphones across all social segments, but new disparities can emerge around nonadopters of technology-based communications. We conducted a cross-sectional survey of urban low-income adults to assess inadequate reading health literacy and limited English proficiency as factors affecting access to and engagement with mHealth. Although the proportion owning smartphones were comparable to national figures, adjusted analysis showed fewer patients with inadequate reading health literacy having Internet access (odds ratio [95% confidence interval]: 0...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is one of the most common intracranial hematomas worldwide with a high incidence in the general population. However, the optimum treatment for CSDH is Burr-hole drainage with or without rinse Considering the poor outcomes of CSDH in aged patients, and ambiguous prediction of recurrence in many sides of recurrent CSDHs who have been analyzed, new effective therapies are needed for those CSDHs who are predicated to have poor prognosis for surgery and/or have a higher risk of recurrence...

Tissue diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) can be challenging. In the past, flexible bronchoscopy was commonly performed for this purpose but its diagnostic yield is suboptimal. This has led to the development of new bronchoscopic modalities such as radial endobronchial ultrasound (R-EBUS), electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) and virtual bronchoscopy (VB). We performed this meta-analysis using data from previously published R-EBUS studies, to determine its diagnostic yield and other performance characteristics...

PURPOSE: To describe the planning and technique for implantation of the t-Branch off-the-shelf multibranched aortic endograft. TECHNIQUE: Total endovascular repair of thoracoabdominal aneurysms (TAAAs) with branched endografts is one of the most important paradigm shifts in the past decade. The t-Branch endograft, an off-the-shelf multibranched graft introduced in the European market in late 2012, allows treatment of patients with suitable anatomy in both the elective and urgent settings to avoid delays related to manufacturing time of custom-made devices...

Photographic documentation of the nails is important in the objective evaluation of response to treatment and in disseminating scientific information related to nail diseases. The key to a good image of the nail is proper framing and achieving a sharp focused image with good contrast with the background, at the same time avoiding strong reflections from the nail surface. While the general principles of clinical photography apply to nail imaging also, this article attempts to highlight some tips which can be specifically used to improve the quality of nail images...

Physiologic assessment using fractional flow reserve (FFR) to guide percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcomes, compared to angiography-guided PCI. Recently, resting indices such as resting Pd/Pa, "instantaneous wave-free ratio", and contrast medium induced FFR have been evaluated for the assessment of the functional consequences of coronary lesions. Herein, we review and discuss the use of FFR and other indices for the functional assessment of coronary lesions...

Phishing is the spoofing of Internet websites or emails aimed at tricking users into entering sensitive information, with such goals as financial or identity theft. The current study sought to determine whether age is associated with increased susceptibility to phishing and whether tests of executive functioning can predict phishing susceptibility. A total of 193 cognitively intact participants, 91 younger adults and 102 older adults, were primarily recruited through a Psychology department undergraduate subject pool and a gerontology research registry, respectively...

A substantial ion flow in a normally wet protein masks any other forms of signal transmission. We use hysteresis and linear conduction (both are artifacts) as a marker to precisely wet a protein, which restricts the ionic conduction (hysteresis disappears), and at the same time, it is not denatured (quantized conductance and Raman spectra are intact). Pure electric visualization of proteins at work by eliminating the screening of ions, electrons, would change the way we study biology. Here we discuss the technical challenges resolved for imaging a protein or live cell using nonlinear dielectric response (spatial distribution of conductance, capacitance and phase, GCP trio)...

It is desirable that nanopores that are components of biosensors are gated, i.e. capable of controllable switching between closed (impermeable) and open (permeable) states. A central hydrophobic barrier within a nanopore may act as a voltage dependent gate via electrowetting, i.e. changes in nanopore surface wettability by application of an electric field. We use 'computational electrophysiology' simulations to demonstrate and characterise electrowetting of a biomimetic nanopore containing a hydrophobic gate...

OBJECTIVES: In single-port surgery, the surgeon operates almost exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient's navel, leaving only a single small scar. The aims of this study were to share some tips and tricks of single-port robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy and to evaluate the learning curve of mastering the skills to operate this procedure. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of the first 25 single-port; robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy surgeries performed during July to December 2015 at Rambam Health Care Campus by a single surgeon...

Gang Wang, Qiangqiang Zhou, Yufei Chen
Estimating transformations from degraded point sets is necessary for many computer vision and pattern recognition applications. In this paper, we propose a robust nonrigid point set registration method based on spatially constrained context-aware Gaussian fields. We first construct a context-aware representation (e.g., shape context) for assignment initialization. Then we use a graph Laplacian regularized Gaussian fields to estimate the underlying transformation from the likely correspondences. On the one hand, the intrinsic manifold is considered and used to preserve the geometrical structure, and a priori knowledge of the point set is extracted...

: Gallbladder adenomyomatosis (GA) is a benign alteration of the gallbladder wall that can be found in up to 9% of patients. GA is characterized by a gallbladder wall thickening containing small bile-filled cystic spaces (i.e., the Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses, RAS). The bile contained in RAS may undergo a progressive concentration process leading to crystal precipitation and calcification development. A correct characterization of GA is fundamental in order to avoid unnecessary cholecystectomies...

Reconstruction procedures come last in skull base surgery, but they are not the least important phase-rather, reconstruction is one of the most important steps required to prevent complications. In our opinion, there are three general principles upon which a good reconstruction of the skull base stand: (1) anatomo-surgical knowledge; (2) approach/route selection; and (3) the cooperation of the skull base surgical team. In general, three major complications may occur when a good skull base reconstruction has not been achieved, i...

BACKGROUND: Myelomeningocele (MMC) is a rare but severe spinal defect resulting from a failed neurulation process. Surgical repair is a delicate procedure that needs accurate neuroanatomical knowledge and adequate surgical planning. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors report on the main problems of the surgical management of this type of dysraphism. The technique used for reconstruction, and the management strategies, are analyzed according to the authors' experience with more than 600 cases, in comparison with the relevant literature...

Recently, the nonlinear projection trick (NPT) was introduced enabling direct computation of coordinates of samples in a reproducing kernel Hilbert space. With NPT, any machine learning algorithm can be extended to a kernel version without relying on the so called kernel trick. However, NPT is inherently difficult to be implemented incrementally because an ever increasing kernel matrix should be treated as additional training samples are introduced. In this paper, an incremental version of the NPT (INPT) is proposed based on the observation that the centerization step in NPT is unnecessary...
