Malte Ziewitz
What does it take to mobilise experiences of care and make them useful for improving services? This article draws on ethnographic fieldwork with a UK-based patient feedback website to develop a critical perspective on patient experience as a contingent accomplishment and a focal point for eliciting, provoking, and respecifying relations of accountability. Following a single posting from the moderation room back to the author and into the wards and offices of the hospital, I show how moderators, carers, and clinical staff respond to and act upon a seemingly stable experience...

BACKGROUND: In Thailand's northwestern Tak province, contextual conditions along the border with Myanmar pose difficulties for TB control among migrant populations. Incomplete surveillance data, migrant patient mobility, and loss to follow-up make it difficult to estimate the TB burden and implement effective TB control measures. This multi-methods study examined tuberculosis, tuberculosis and human immunodeficiency virus co-infection, and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis treatment accessibility for migrants and refugees in Tak province, health system response, and public health surveillance...

The rise of global value chains (GVCs) characterized by the so-called "outsourcing", "fragmentation production", and "trade in tasks" has been considered one of the most important phenomena for the 21st century trade. GVCs also can play a decisive role in trade policy making. However, due to the increasing complexity and sophistication of international production networks, especially in the equipment manufacturing industry, conventional trade statistics and the corresponding trade indicators may give us a distorted picture of trade...

Markus Ostarek, Falk Huettig
The notion that processing spoken (object) words involves activation of category-specific representations in visual cortex is a key prediction of modality-specific theories of representation that contrasts with theories assuming dedicated conceptual representational systems abstracted away from sensorimotor systems. In the present study, we investigated whether participants can detect otherwise invisible pictures of objects when they are presented with the corresponding spoken word shortly before the picture appears...

AIMS: The heart contraction is controlled by the Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+ )release (CICR) between L-type Ca(2+ )channels and ryanodine receptors (RyRs). The FK506-binding protein FKBP12.6 binds to RyR subunits, but its role in stabilizing RyR function has been debated for long. Recent reports of high-resolution RyR structure show that the HD2 domain that binds to the SPRY2 domain of neighbouring subunit in FKBP-bound RyR1 is detached and invisible in FKBP-null RyR2. The present study was to test the consequence of FKBP12...

One triumph of the human mind is the ability to place the multitudinous array of people we encounter into in- and out-group members based on racial characteristics. One fundamental question that remains to be answered is whether invisible own- and other-race faces can nevertheless influence subsequent affective judgments. Here, we employed continuous flash suppression (CFS) to render own- and other-race faces unperceivable in an affective priming task. Both on-line and off-line awareness checks were employed to provide more stringent control of partial awareness...

Invisible near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence imaging with indocyanine green (ICG) has advantage in detecting for certain anatomy. The method is currently used in some types of surgery, such as sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping, intraoperative solid tumor identification, and organ perfusion assessment. However, the literature of clinical application in thoracic surgery is lacking. This paper presents the advantages, current applications and potential developments of NIR fluorescence imaging with ICG in thoracic surgery...

PURPOSE: While Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT) with (68)Ga-PSMA-11 in the diagnosis of prostate cancer (PCa) is routinely performed at 1h post injection (p.i.), later scans may be beneficial since most lesions present with higher uptake and contrast. This evaluation aimed to investigate the clinical impact of additional late (68)Ga-PSMA-11-PET/CT. METHODS: Between 2011 and 2016, 112 patients with PCa who received early (at 1h p.i.) and late (at 3h p...

Various paradigms can make visual stimuli disappear from awareness, but they often involve stimuli that are either relatively weak, competing with other salient inputs, and/or presented for a prolonged period of time. Here we explore a phenomenon that involves controlled perceptual disappearance of a peripheral visual stimulus without these limitations. It occurs when one eye's stimulus is abruptly removed during a binocular rivalry situation. This manipulation renders the remaining stimulus, which is still being presented to the other eye, invisible for up to several seconds...

Historical, environmental, and cultural contexts intersect with aging, sexuality, and gender across communities and generations. My scholarship investigates health and well-being over the life course across marginalized communities, including LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) midlife and older adults, native communities experiencing cardiovascular risk, and families in China living with HIV, in order to balance the realities of unique lives in contemporary society. By probing the intersection of age, sexuality, and gender, my analysis is informed by both personal and professional experiences...

BACKGROUND: The middle meningeal artery (MMA) is well known to function as an important collateral channel to the territory of the anterior cerebral artery in moyamoya disease. This study was aimed to evaluate whether indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography could visualize the anterior branch of the MMA before craniotomy during surgical revascularization for moyamoya disease. METHODS: This study included 19 patients who developed TIA, ischemic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke due to moyamoya disease...

Clonal instability of a tumor cell population in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) may complicate the monitoring of a minimal residual disease (MRD) by means of patient-specific targets identified at the disease onset. Most of the data concerning the possible instability of rearranged clonal TCR and IG genes during disease recurrence were obtained for ALL in children. The appropriate features of adult ALL, which are known to differ from those of childhood ALL in certain biological characteristics and prognosis, remain insufficiently studied...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the transillumination test in showing the position of the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) to quantify the effectiveness of this test. METHODS: Prospectively, we selected 53 ankle arthroscopy patients (71 patients were excluded because of the invisible SPN). Demographic data including gender, weight, height, and body mass index were recorded. The intraoperative transillumination test was performed during portal establishment and recorded as positive if the SPN was visible via transillumination...

PURPOSE: Modeling tumor control probability (TCP) can help optimize treatment plans for better treatment outcomes. This study sought to quantify the radiobiological parameters of the TCP model for patients with lung cancer. METHODS: A two-compartment kinetic model was developed to model tumor regression for five NSCLC patients. The model has three parameters: cell survival fraction, dead-cell-resolving time and tumor doubling time. The last one was extended to a function of tumor volume...

INTRODUCTION: The intra-operative detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by ultrasonography is indispensable for laparoscopic partial hepatectomy. However, it is occasionally difficult to localize an HCC on an ultrasound in chronic liver disease. Two cases of partial hepatectomy using hookwire marking under CT guidance are presented. MATERIALS AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: The location of the HCC was identified by CT scan, and the puncture site was determined. A hookwire system, made of a stainless steel hook, was used to localize the HCC...
