BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The ABC/2 method for calculating intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) volume has been well validated. However, the formula, derived from the volume of an ellipse, assumes the shape of ICH is elliptical. We sought to compare the agreement of the ABC/2 formula with other methods through retrospective analysis of a selection of the STICH II cohort (Early Surgery Versus Initial Conservative Treatment in Patients With Spontaneous Supratentorial Lobar Intracerebral Haematomas)...

The Mn4CaO5 oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of photosystem II catalyzes the light-driven oxidation of two substrate waters to molecular oxygen. An ELDOR-detected NMR and computational study has indicated that ammonia, a substrate analogue, binds as a terminal ligand to the Mn4A ion trans to the O5 μ4 oxido bridge.[Perez Navarro M., et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 2013, 110, 15561-15566] A subsequent electron spin echo envelope modulation (ESEEM) study confirmed this result and showed that ammonia hydrogen bonds to the carboxylate sidechain of D1-Asp61...

BACKGROUND: A case-control study was designed to investigate the impact on functional outcome and postoperative pain of a modified C-shaped skin incision and muscle flaps in patients undergoing minicraniotomy retrosigmoid approach (mCRSA). METHODS: Enrolled patients were prospectively studied and divided/assigned to Group A, standard straight/lazy S-shaped incision or Group B, modified C-shaped incision. The latter consisted of a 4 cm C-shaped skin incision with medial convexity (placed 8cm laterally to the external occipital protuberance, with the lower edge terminating 1,5-2cm above the mastoid tip); followed, upon sub-periosteal dissection, the muscle flaps are reflected superiorly and inferiorly by stiches...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) associated with left ventricular systolic dysfunction is a condition related to poor prognosis. There is a lack of robust evidence in many aspects related to this condition, from definition to treatment. Ischemic cardiomyopathy is a spectrum ranging from stunned myocardium associated with myocardial fibrosis to hibernating myocardium and repetitive episodes of ischemia. In clinical practice, relevance lies in identifying the myocardium that has the ability to recover its contractile reserve after revascularization...

Background Physician shortage is particularly striking in surgical specialities. Umbrella organisations are making an effort to recruit medical students. Students' symposia during congresses seem to provide a promising approach to developing motivation and promoting interest. An exemplary students' symposium took place at the three nations meeting for minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Our aim was to evaluate the students' symposium from the students' perspective, in order to give recommendations for the future...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the average time in months between the beginning of symptoms and the diagnostic confirmation of leprosy by the health system and to investigate factors associated with diagnostic delay. METHODS: A total of 249 patients older than 15 years diagnosed with leprosy between 2011 and 2015, in 20 endemic municipalities of north-eastern Colombia, provided informed consent and were interviewed face-to-face. Clinical histories from health centres or hospitals where study participants were treated for leprosy were also reviewed...

Objective: To describe the surgical technique of a subxiphoid approach to remove cardiophrenic lymph nodes in women with advanced ovarian cancer. Materials and methods: The first step is to dissect and separate the anterior insertions of the diaphragm at the xiphoid appendix. Thus, the parietal peritoneum and the upper fibres of the transversus abdominis muscle are incised. Then, the anteroinferior mediastinum is identified and dissected. Diaphragmatic deinsertion may be extended 5-7 cm laterally to the xiphoid appendix following the inferior costal margin according with the localization of the enlarged lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND: We previously described inflammatory cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) alterations in a subgroup of patients with schizophreniform disorders and the synthesis of polyspecific intrathecal antibodies against different neurotropic infectious pathogens in some patients with bipolar disorders. Consequently, we have measured the prevalence of a positive MRZ reaction (MRZR)-a marker for a polyspecific, antiviral, intrathecal, humoral immune response composed of three antibody indices for the neurotropic viruses of measles (M), rubella (R), and varicella zoster (Z)-in these patients...

Background: This paper analyzes the trends of key indicators reflecting the epidemiological situation of leprosy in nine different states of the Republic of the Sudan after the introduction of a systematic contact screening in 2010. Methods: The routinely assessed data from the leprosy control program from 2010 to 2016 were analyzed. Results: Despite, intense contact screening, the overall number of new cases detected showed a decreasing trend...

Infections with Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) belong to the most common human diseases worldwide, resulting in symptoms ranging from painful, but commonly self-limiting lesions of the orofacial or genital tract to severe infections of the eye or life-threatening generalized infections. Frequent HSV-reactivations at the eye may lead to the development of herpetic stromal keratitis, which is one of the major causes of infectious blindness in developed countries. The vast majority of life-threatening generalized infections occur in immunocompromised individuals, such as transplant recipients or patients suffering from advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection with concurrent HSV-reactivation...

OBJECTIVE: To independently validate the predictive value of the intensive care requirement score (IRS) in unselected poisoned patients. DESIGN: Retrospective chart review. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Five hundred and seventeen out of 585 admissions for acute intoxications could be analyzed. Eleven were excluded for a condition already requiring intensive care unit (ICU) support at admission (e.g., preclinical intubation). A further 57 admissions were excluded due to missing data...

Large scale epitaxial growth and transfer of monolayer MoS2 has attracted great attention in recent years. Here, we report the wafer-scale epitaxial growth of highly oriented continuous and uniform monolayer MoS2 films on single-crystalline sapphire wafers by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. The epitaxial film is of high quality and stiched by many 0°, 60° domains and 60°-domain boundaries. Moreover, such wafer-scale monolayer MoS2 films can be transferred and stacked by a simple stamp-transfer process and the substrate is reusable for subsequent growth...

PURPOSE: Flexor tendon repair consists of circumferential peripheral sutures in combination with core sutures to avoid fraying and reduces the exposure of suture material on tendon surface. The peripheral suture adds up to a tenfold increase of the biomechanical stability compared to the core suture alone. The purpose of our study was to determine the most favourable peripheral repair technique for tendon repair. METHODS: Seventy-two porcine flexor tendons underwent standardized tenotomy and repair using one of the following six methods (n = 12): simple-running (SR), simple-locking (SL), Halsted-mattress (HM), lin-locking (LL), Lembert-mattress (LM), and Silfverskiöld cross-stich (SCS) suture technique...

A simple exchange reaction between [Ar(iPr4)Sn(μ-Cl)]2 (1) and sodium azide afforded the doubly bridged Sn(II) azide, [Ar(iPr4)Sn(μ-N3)]2 (2) (Ar(iPr4) = C6H3-2,6(C6H3-2,6-(i)Pr2)2) in 85% yield. Photolysis of a diethyl ether solution of 2 for ca. 16 h yielded an azepinyl-substituted insertion product, [C6H3-2-(C6H3-2,6-(i)Pr2)-6-(C6H3N-3,7-(i)Pr2)Sn]2 (3). The reaction of the Lewis acid, B(C6F5)3 (BCF), or the Lewis base, pyridine, with 2 dissociates the dimer to afford the corresponding complexed monomeric Sn(II) azide, Ar(iPr4)SnN3BCF (4) in which BCF coordinates the α-nitrogen, or Ar(iPr4)Sn(pyridine)N3 (6) in which pyridine coordinates to the tin atom...

Background: Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE) is a rare immunological neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by increased antithyroid antibodies and mixed neurological and psychiatric symptoms. HE has been previously discussed as a differential diagnosis for rapid progressive dementia. However, most of these patients suffered from additional neurological symptoms, like ataxia or seizures. Case presentation: Here, we present the case of a 59-year-old female patient suffering rapid onset dementia with salient frontal executive dysfunction...
