The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between the expression levels of metastasis-related gene 1 (MTA1) and vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with lymph angiogenesis and lymph node metastasis. The paraffin-embedded tissue samples of 107 cases of ESCC and 56 cases of normal esophageal tissues were collected from the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Suining Central Hospital from March 2013 to January 2014. Immunohistochemical assays were performed to detect the expression levels of MTA1, VEGF-C and D2-40 in ESCC, and the micro-lymphatic vessel density (LVD) was evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the CT and MR features of pseudoaneurysms of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa (PMAIVF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included 9 patients with a diagnosis of PMAIVF who had CT or MRI within 3months of echocardiography. Echocardiography images were reviewed by a cardiologist and CT and MRI images were reviewed by two experienced cardiothoracic radiologists. RESULTS: Recognizable imaging features of PMAIVFs were communication with the Left ventricular outflow tract, location between the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve and the aortic valve, systolic expansion and diastolic collapse...

BACKGROUND: The deployment of surgical assets has been driven by mission demands throughout years of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The transition to the highly expeditious Golden Hour Offset Surgical Transport Team (GHOST- T) now offers highly mobile surgical assets in nontraditional operating rooms; the content of the surgical instrument sets has also transformed to accommodate this change. METHODS: The 102nd Forward Surgical Team (FST) was attached to Special Operations assigned to southern Afghanistan from June 2015 to March 2016...

INTRODUCTION: The cardio-thoracic ratio (CTR) and the transverse cardiac diameter (TCD) on Plain chest radiography are the two parameters commonly used to diagnose cardiomegaly and heart disease. A CTR of greater than 50% on a PA film is abnormal and normally indicates cardiac or pericardial disease condition, whiles an increase of TCD from 1.5 to 2cm on two consecutive radiographs, taken at short interval, suggests possible cardiac pathology. The aim was to determine the suitability of using the same TCD and CTR to detect cardiomegaly for all age groups and genders respectively...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have investigated the clinical impact of pulmonary artery (PA) dilatation on outcomes in pediatric pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).Methods and Results:This study investigated the clinical outcomes of idiopathic or heritable PAH in 66 children aged <18 years at diagnosis. Main PA/thorax (MPA/T) ratio was measured on chest radiography in PAH patients. Patients were divided into 2 groups based on MPA/T ratio, and compared with a control group of 166 age- and gender-matched healthy children...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: We aimed to compare access to new health technologies to treat coronary heart disease (CHD) in the health systems of Portugal and the US, characterizing the needs of the populations and the resources available. METHODS: We reviewed data for 2000 and 2010 on epidemiologic profiles of CHD and on health care available to patients. Thirty health technologies (16 medical devices and 14 drugs) introduced during the period 1980-2015 were identified by interventional cardiologists...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate a contemporary clinical risk score to predict mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: Using data collected from patients undergoing PCI at the South Yorkshire Cardiothoracic Centre, Sheffield, UK, between January 2007 and September 2013, a risk score was developed to predict mortality. Logistic regression was used to evaluate the effect of each variable upon 30-day mortality. A backwards stepwise logistic regression model was then used to build a predictive model...

BACKGROUND: The success of an academic surgeon's career is often viewed as directly related to academic appointment; therefore, the sequence of promotion is a demanding, rigorous process. This paper seeks to define the financial implication of academic advancement across different surgical subspecialties. STUDY DESIGN: Data was collected from the Association of American Medical College's 2015 report of average annual salaries. Assumptions included 30 years of practice, 5 years as assistant professor, and 10 years as associate professor before advancement...

BACKGROUND: The risk factors among the types of ischemic stroke (atherothrombotic cerebral infarction: ATI, cardio-embolic infarction: CEI, lacunar infarction: LI) in aged stroke patients have rarely been compared to each other. METHODS: We compared the clinical parameters of 300 elderly patients with ischemic stroke, age 65-98years, to 100 age-matched control patients. RESULTS: Comparison by parametric test and logistic regression analysis between all 300 and 100 control patients showed higher systolic and diastolic blood pressures (p<0...

Solid organ transplant recipients (SOTR) with a pre-transplant malignancy (PTM) have been thought to be at high risk of cancer recurrence. However, recent population-based studies report cancer recurrence rates in SOTR similar to those of non-transplant patients. A systematic search was performed in MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library to identify studies reporting cancer recurrence in SOTR with PTM. Quality assessment was performed using a validated tool for assessing the quality of an observational study with no control group designed by the Institute of Health Economics...

Best timing for permanent pacemaker implantation to treat complete atrioventricular block (AVB) after cardiac surgery is unclear, as late pacemaker dependency was found low in recent observational studies. This study aimed to identify factors associated with spontaneous recovery from AVB. In a prospective and observational cohort, all patients who underwent cardiothoracic surgery during a 14-month-period were included (n = 1,200). Risk factors of postoperative AVB were assessed by logistic regression. Among patients who developed AVB, variables associated with recovery from AVB were assessed by Cox and logistic regression...

Objective To determine the timeline of the first appearance of an increased CT ratio of fetuses with hemoglobin (Hb) Bart's disease. Materials and Methods A prospective longitudinal study was conducted on pregnancies at risk for fetal Hb Bart's disease. Sonographic markers including cardiothoracic (CT) ratio and middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity (MCA-PSV) were serially assessed and recorded from the first trimester. The definite diagnosis of fetal Hb Bart's disease based on DNA analysis (CVS), or fetal Hb typing (HPLC; cordocentesis) was performed at the first appearance of an increased CT ratio...
