BACKGROUND: The deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap, which is a modification of the muscle-sparing free transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (msTRAM) flap, is being more frequently used in an effort to reduce postoperative abdominal morbidity. However, there is no consensus as to which of these flaps is superior. We aimed to compare quantitative measurements of abdominal function obtained with an isokinetic dynamometer after DIEP and msTRAM flap elevation. METHODS: Patients who underwent unilateral single-pedicled DIEP (n = 42) or msTRAM flap (n = 36) breast reconstruction performed by a single surgeon were included in this study...

Palliative care began in Vietnam in 2001, but steady growth in palliative care services and education commenced several years later when partnerships for ongoing training and technical assistance by committed experts were created with the Ministry of Health (MoH), major public hospitals, and medical universities. An empirical analysis of palliative care need by the MoH in 2006 was followed by national palliative care clinical guidelines, initiation of clinical training for physicians and nurses, and revision of opioid prescribing regulations...

Even though DIEP-SIEA flaps or latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap are the most frequently used, a wide variety of flaps have been described for autologous breast reconstruction. Concerning the choice of donor-site, the aim is to prevent and to limit the morbidity. That is why the donor-site should be carefully chosen, according to the morphology of the patient. Lumbar artery perforator flap (LAP) is an option for breast reconstruction, but it is not well known and its use is limited. This study summarizes the authors' early experience with free LAP flap for breast reconstruction...

Rural farming communities in northern Vietnam do not routinely practice vaccination for influenza A viruses (IAV) for either humans or poultry, which enables us to study transmission intensity via seroepidemiology. Using samples from a longitudinal cohort of farming households, we determined the number of symptomatic and asymptomatic human infections for seasonal IAV and avian A/H9 over 2 years. As expected, we detected virologically confirmed acute cases of seasonal IAV in humans, as well as large numbers of subclinical seroconversions to A/H1pdm [55/265 (21 %)], A/H3 [95/265 (36 %)] and A/H9 [24/265 (9 %)]...

INTRODUCTION: In the management of breast cancer radiation therapy plays a substantive role in decreasing local recurrence and increasing overall survival. Still, there exists controversy concerning compromised radiation delivery plans and suboptimal delivery after immediate autologous breast reconstruction. Our study aims to assess the oncologic safety of immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) with a Deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP), in the setting of adjuvant radiation therapy...

Porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV) is the aetiologic agent of porcine epidemic diarrhoea (PED), a highly contagious enteric disease that is threatening the swine industry globally. Since PED was first reported in Southern Vietnam in 2009, the disease has spread throughout the country and caused substantial economic losses. To identify PEDVs responsible for the recent outbreaks, the full-length spike (S) gene of 25 field PEDV strains collected from seven northern provinces of Vietnam was sequenced and analysed...

BACKGROUND: The process of harvesting and performing microsurgical anastomosis may lengthen deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap breast reconstruction affecting results and patient safety. The aim of the study was to investigate the associations between predictors and operative time (OT). METHODS: Between 2004 and 2016, 336 immediate and 68 delayed unilateral reconstructions were performed in 404 patients. Age, weight, height, body mass index (BMI), nulliparity, or pluriparity condition were collected to determine the impact of patient characteristics on OT...

Dysregulation of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) activation promoted DNA damage response bypass and tumorigenesis in our model of hydrogen peroxide-associated ulcerative colitis (UC) and in patients with quiescent UC (QUC), UC-related dysplasia, and UC-related carcinoma (UC-CRC), thereby adapting to oxidative stress. In the UC model, we have observed features of oncogenic transformation: increased proliferation, undetected DNA damage, and apoptosis resistance. Here, we show that Chk1 was downregulated but activated in the acute and quiescent chronic phases...

PURPOSE: Inherited defects in the adenosine deaminase (ADA) enzyme can cause severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) and systemic abnormalities. Management options for ADA-deficient patients include enzyme replacement therapy (ERT), hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), and gene therapy (GT). Here, we describe the long-term benefits of these treatments. METHODS: Survival, infections, systemic sequelae, and laboratory assessments were recorded for all ADA-deficient SCID patients, managed at a single center since 1985, who survived 5 or more years following treatment...

The deep inferior epigastric perforator flap has become increasingly popular for breast reconstruction with the most common recipient vessels being the internal mammary artery and vein. In certain cases, however, these recipient vessels are inadequate due to an absent or diminutive vein. Moreover, patients at high risk for future coronary artery disease may sacrifice the best conduit for coronary revascularization if the internal mammary recipients are used. Alternative recipient vessels, including the thoracodorsal, thoracoacromial, external jugular, and cephalic vessels have significant limitations...

Staphylococcus aureus is often involved in severe infections, in which the effects of bacterial virulence factors have great importance. Antistaphylococcal regimens should take into account the different effects of antibacterial agents on the expression of virulence factors and on the host's immune response. A PubMed literature search was performed to select relevant articles on the effects of antibiotics on staphylococcal toxin production and on the host immune response. Information was sorted according to the methods used for data acquisition (bacterial strains, growth models, and antibiotic concentrations) and the assays used for readout generation...

INTRODUCTION: Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction has become an increasingly important component of breast cancer treatment. Unfortunately, some patients experience severe postoperative pain, placing them at risk for increased clinical morbidity and the development of disabling chronic pain. In an attempt to identify at-risk patients, we prospectively evaluated patient characteristics and medical/surgical variables associated with more severe acute post-reconstruction pain. METHODS: Women (N = 2207; one-week 82...

Stress recovery may prove to be a promising approach to increase plant performance, and theoretically, mRNA instability may facilitate faster recovery. Transcriptome (RNA-seq, qPCR, sRNA-seq, PARE) and methylome profiling during repeated excess-light stress and recovery was performed at intervals as short as three minutes. We demonstrate that 87% of the stress-upregulated mRNAs analysed exhibit very rapid recovery. For instance, HSP101 abundance declined two-fold every 5.1 minutes. We term this phenomenon Rapid Recovery Gene Downregulation (RRGD), whereby mRNA abundance rapidly decreases promoting transcriptome resetting...

Electron bifurcation has recently gained acceptance as the third mechanism of energy conservation in which energy is conserved through the coupling of exergonic and endergonic reactions. A structure-based mechanism of bifurcation has been elucidated recently for the flavin-based enzyme NADH-dependent ferredoxin NADP+ oxidoreductase I (NfnI) from the hyperthermophillic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus. NfnI is thought to be involved in maintaining the cellular redox balance, producing NADPH for biosynthesis by recycling the two other primary redox carriers, NADH and ferredoxin...

In free-flap reconstruction of the lower extremity, due either to trauma or pre-existing vascular disease, healthy vessels may not be readily available in the proximity of the defect. A variety of options including a cross-leg free flap, vein grafts, arteriovenous loops, and "bridging" flaps have been used to address the issue. The purpose of this report is to present a case in which a 72-cm long extended bilateral deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) free flap was used for coverage of a 20 × 25 cm soft tissue defect of the lower leg following a Gustilo grade IIIC fracture in a 29-year-old man...
