PURPOSE: Despite extensive previous investigations regarding the efficacy of lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) for the treatment of lymphedema, few studies have reported the long-term clinical course of individual patients undergoing LVA. The present study presented our experience of LVA and to report serial postoperative courses. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for 17 patients (2 male and 15 female) with lymphedema refractory to conservative treatment who underwent LVA and were followed-up for at least postoperative 24 months...

The efficacy of levulinic acid (LVA) in combination with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) in removal of foodborne viruses, enteric bacterial pathogens and their surrogates on fresh strawberries was investigated. Inoculated strawberries were treated with potable water, sodium hypochlorite solution (50ppm), 0.5% LVA plus 0.5% SDS solution, and 5% LVA plus 2% SDS solution respectively for 2min, followed by spray-rinsing with potable water. Water washing removed at least 1.0-log of the tested viral and bacterial strains from the strawberries' surfaces...

Anatomy is the keystone to an appropriate understanding of surgical and radiological sciences. Here the authors report on a rare case of complete right- and left-sided thoracic ducts (TDs) associated with aberrant left-vertebral artery (LVA) arising from the aortic arch. The TDs originated from right and left cisterna chyli and terminated separately close to the left venous angle. Superior to the aortic arch, the TDs showed different relationships to the LVA; the right TD was ventral, while the left was dorsal in position...

Ventricular outpouching is a rare finding in prenatal sonography and the main differential diagnoses are diverticulum, aneurysm, and pseudoaneurysm in addition to congenital cysts and clefts. The various modes of fetal presentation of congenital ventricular outpouching include an abnormal four-chamber view on fetal two-dimensional echocardiogram, fetal arrhythmia, fetal hydrops, and pericardial effusion. Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA)/nonapical diverticula are usually isolated defects. Apical diverticula are always associated with midline thoracoabdominal defects (epigastric pulsating diverticulum or large omphalocele) and other structural malformations of the heart...

BACKGROUND: Lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA) is a useful treatment option for compression-refractory lower extremity lymphedema (LEL), but its efficacy largely depends on severity of lymphosclerosis. To maximize LVA efficacy, it is important to elucidate factors associated with severe lymphosclerosis (SLS). METHODS: Medical charts of 134 LEL patients who underwent preoperative indocyanine green (ICG) lymphography and LVA were reviewed to obtain data of clinical demographics, ICG lymphography findings, and intraoperative findings...

INTRODUCTION: Lymphedema can be a debilitating condition, causing a great decrease in a person's quality of life (QoL). Treatment with lymphaticovenular anastomosis (LVA), in which an anastomosis is created between the lymphatic and venous system, may attenuate lymphedema symptoms and reduce swelling. In this study, we share the results using LVA to treat breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) at our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients were eligible for inclusion if they suffered from unilateral BCRL, if functional lymphatics were available, if compression therapy was used for at least 6 months, and if the follow-up was 12 months at minimum...

Myocardial Abscess (MA) is a rare life threatening condition mostly occurring secondary to underlying infective endocarditis. But it can also be found secondary to septicemia with some unknown focus of sepsis in the body. Development of MA as a consequence of left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) secondary to myocardial infarction is very rare. We report the case of 56 year old male, who presented with high grade fever and leukocytosis. On detailed evaluation, he was found to have a myocardial abscess with underlying LVA...

Identification of the different intracellular pathways that control phosphorylation/dephosphorylation process of ionic channels represents an exciting alternative approach for studying the ionic mechanisms underlying neuronal pacemaker activity. In the central nervous system of the cockroach Periplaneta americana, octopaminergic neurons, called dorsal unpaired median (DUM; DUM neurons), generate spontaneous repetitive action potentials. Short-term cultured adult DUM neurons isolated from the terminal abdominal ganglion (TAG) of the nerve cord were used to study the regulation of a tetrodotoxin-sensitive low-voltage-activated (LVA) channel permeable to sodium and calcium (Na/Ca), under whole cell voltage- and current-clamp conditions...

Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) is rare but potentially fatal complication of myocardial infarction. It has been strictly defined as a distinct area of abnormal left ventricular diastolic contour with systolic dyskinesia or paradoxical bulging. It may be asymptomatic. However, complications including thromboembolism, heart failure, valvular regurgitation, arrhythmia, and rarely rupture may be the initial presentation. Diagnosis may be established by transthoracic echocardiography, left ventriculography, computed tomographic angiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging...

EEG alpha activity is the dominant oscillation in most adult humans, is highly heritable, and has been associated with a number of cognitive functions. Two EEG phenotypes, low- and high-voltage alpha (LVA & HVA), have been demonstrated to have high heritabilities. They have different prevalence depending on a population's ancestral origins. In the present study we assessed the influence of ancestry admixture on EEG alpha power, and conducted a whole genome sequencing association analysis and an ancestry-informed polygenic study on those phenotypes in a Native American (NA) population that has a high prevalence of LVA...

BACKGROUND: Voltage-guided substrate ablation following pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) improves atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation outcomes. However, by setting an upper voltage cutoff of 0.5 mV during sinus rhythm (SR) to guided substrate ablation using electroanatomic voltage mapping (EAVM), mildly affected low-voltage area (maLVA) may be undetected. We sought to determine the optimal bipolar voltage cutoff to identify maLVA, its electrogram complexity, and the implication on ablation outcome...

BACKGROUND: Lymphedema is one of the most dreaded side effects to any cancer treatment involving lymphadenectomy. Progressed lymphedema is adversely complex and currently there is no widely acknowledged curative treatment. Therefore recent focus has shifted to risk reduction and prevention. It has been hypothesized that bypassing lymphatic vessels to veins prophylactically, could minimize the lymphatic dysfunction seen following lymphadenectomy. METHODS: To investigate this possible future treatment modality, we performed a systematic meta-analysis of studies treating patients with prophylactic lymphovenous analysisstomosis (LVA) for the prevention of secondary lymphedema following lymphadenectomy...

Dopamine (DA) neurons of the ventrolateral periaqueductal gray (vlPAG) and dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN) fire spontaneous action potentials (APs) at slow, regular patterns in vitro but a detailed account of their intrinsic membrane properties responsible for spontaneous firing is currently lacking. To resolve this, we performed a voltage-clamp electrophysiological study in brain slices to describe their major ionic currents and then constructed a computer model and used simulations to understand the mechanisms behind autorhythmicity in silico...
